Achilles: I don't give a fuck
Patroclus: *Shivering*
Achilles: Are you cold, love? You need a blanket? My jacket? Cup of tea? A hug? Come over here, let's cuddle.

oh to be a young, beautiful boy walking barefoot and carefree as his hair is softly blown by the fresh winds of north under the bright sun, in his way to his secret encounter with his lover, a lovely boy with dazzling eyes, in the mesmerizing and far away lands of ancient greece

"i'm no king." he says.
i smile and tell him, "you will be."
he shakes his head and turns away
and i have to fight the urge
to pull him back into me.
i have to swallow back the words
crawling up my throat.
"you always were.
to me, you always were."
-mars

reincarnation au in which achilles is haunted by bad dreams of seeing patroclus' dead body, his now boyfriend who he recently started living with, so he keeps waking up at night to check his breathing— patroclus has started noticing, so he holds him close to his chest every night so achilles can feel his heartbeat against his cheek, and it's the only way achilles can sleep peacefully.

“Achilles weeps. He cradles me, and will not eat, not speak a word other than my name. I see his face as if through water, as a fish sees the sun. His tears fall, but I cannot wipe them away. This is my element now, the half-life of the unburied spirit.”
-Madeline Miller, The Song of Achilles

domestic patrochilles au;
patroclus reading poetry to achilles while laying on his lap, it's raining outside and they're cozy in bed— achilles caresses his hair and looks at him, thinking of how he's the most beautiful boy he's ever seen and how he would choose him a million times over, always, forever.
pat notices achilles staring too much and asks him if everything is alright. achilles smiles at him as if he knew something nobody else did; "i don't think you realize how beautiful you are."
pat is overwhelmed with emotions; he reaches over and holds achilles' torso tightly, hiding his face on his tummy, never wanting to let go, trying to keep him from noticing the tears that now stream down his face because nobody else in the world has seen him the way achilles sees him.
