I’ll just never get this “Achilles is straight“ thing like ??? the heck man, Homer himself wrote it both in The Iliad and Odyssey that Patroclus and Achilles were lovers BUT modern critics say “they were like brothers Achilles loved Briseis“ first of all you dumbos, Briseis (I love her, nothing againist Bri) was Achilles’s war prize and Patroclus - his companion, not vice versa. Second, when Briseis is taken from Achilles, he’s just angry at Agadamnon and cries, refusing to rejoin the war, but then he loses Patrolus, joins the war again for Patroclus and he becomes a fcking terminator.
So Patrochilles is /was/ canon and Alexander the Great was Patrochilles trash *squeals* doN’T JUDGE ME I’M STILL NOT OVER THIS
has probably one of the most epic love stories of all time - Achilles/Briseis.
“You gave me peace in a lifetime of war.”
I endure watching Troy because of them (Paris and Helen are…meh. I mean I LOVE Orlando Bloom but still…meh.) ACHILLES LETS HER GO WITH PRIAM EVEN THOUGH HE LOVES HER HE STILL LETS HER GO TO BE WITH HER FAMILY AND NOT BE A SLAVE. UGHUGHUGHUGH *LUFFS THEM*
I might have to read The Firebrand by Marion Zimmer Bradley now, as Briseis leaves Troy to be with Achilles in it…and some other, awesome sounding stuff happens too.
(Also, James Horner worked on the soundtrack, and that’s relevant because he also worked on the Titanic (1997) soundtrack, thereby guaranteeing that I’ll love the music no matter what and/or cry when it comes on.)
(Also, also Brian Cox - aka Agamennon - played Daphne’s father in all my time favorite show Frasier, and I only realized it tonight.)
Ok guys sorry for the delay…but i’m with a cold and i’ve been in bed all day…and i still have to finish some details of the second and third page of the comic…but here is the first page…the interview/reality show begins….
One. Gisla thinks rationally and stops at the last moment.
Two. Rollo stops her.
What I like the most in this part is that Gisla is not careful at all. Her sleeve is caressing Rollo’s skin. At this point he is probably alert. Unless he is in a coma or drunk to the point of total blackout even the slightest movement from her part would be enough to put him on edge (He is a Viking baby girl so next time be careful with the sleeves lol). He is trained to kill and trained to defend himself. And now he is sleeping next to the woman he saw on top of the wall screaming and encouraging the soldiers to kill every Viking on sight. Despite her grief for the situation and her seemingly looking weak she is still the same woman that had Rollo falling from the ladder simply because he got so enchanted by her fighting spirit. He knows with whom he is on that bed and in his culture he knows never to underestimate a woman. His killer instincts and survival instincts are as high as they get and Gisla is just so unprepared to deal with him at this point and she is so angry and desperate and that actually reminds me of another similar scene.
Have you watched Troy? I do not know how the scene with Gisla and Rollo will turn out but the basics of the beginning of this particular scene look exactly the same as those of the scene in Troy where Briseis tried to kill Achilles in his sleep were.
I do not think the scene between Rollo and Gisla will turn out the same (too bad really lol) but the premise and the similarities are definitely there.
