Can you do an AU where Agamemnon takes Patroclus instead of Briseis after his fight with Achilles? I'm in love with your blog btw :)
(warning: very slight mentions of possible dubcon)
“Do not go to him.”
His mother said. Achilles didn’t
There was nothing for him to do, no way for him to fix what
he had caused. If he went to Agamemnon,
agreed to fight in exchange for his Patroclus, then it would blemish him. The great Achilles on his knees begging. His honor would be broken. If he stayed, he would not be able to
sleep. The bed beside him was empty, too
cold and with too much space for him to even imagine a peaceful sleep.
“The boy is nothing. You
will forget him in time.” Thetis
said. She walked through his tent and
laid her hand upon his brow, pushing back his long curls. “It’s for the best. Once they realize how much they need you, Agamemnon
will plead. He will turn your name to
dust, all the glory you could achieve would be nothing.”
Goggles & Dust collects over 100 stunning photographs from competitive cycling’s heyday. Spanning the 1920s and ’30s, the book celebrates the grit and determination of the bicycle racing pioneers who established the records, traditions, and distinct flavors of Europe’s most hallowed races.
