The Song of Achilles - Fic Rec part 2

So I have read even more The Song of Achilles/ The Iliad inspired fics and here’s a collection of some of my favourites, by fantastic authors: 

-Laughter Lines by Lthien (808)

“You need to have more confidence in yourself, Patroclus. I love you; for you.” He pulls away then, his eyes protective in a way that sets my heart aflame. “Was it my mother again? Do not listen to her. She does not know my heart, only my destiny.”

- Beach Antics with Achilles by rememberednoah (Chapters 3/3)

There were few things Patroclus would say no to when it came to Achilles. When Achilles asked him not to take a summer class, he agreed because Achilles made a convincing point by merely breathing. When Achilles asked him to go on a road trip with him to Phthia so they could spend a week at the beach, how was Patroclus supposed to say no? The answer to that was that there was no way for him to say no because the whole idea had more upsides than downsides.

-Can you Imagine? by littlelamblittlelamb (1.1k)

“Now imagine that you, the strongest man you have ever heard legend of, sent Patroclus – who did not fight or quarrel or rage – into a battle. Imagine that you, who can kill a dozen of Troy’s strongest in a single battle, had one person to protect of any value, and you sent them to die. Over nothing real. Can you imagine?”

Automedon shakes his head. “I am sorry, Achilles. He was so brave-”


“If this was you, who would you be most angry at?”

- The Kiss That Launched a Single Love by Eristastic (Chapters 26/26)

Caught between the sun and the stars, Patroclus learns to thrive in the shadows and bloom as himself. [AU in which Helen and Patroclus are twins and he goes to Troy with her]

The Song of Achilles- Fic Rec

 I’ve read quite a few of The Song Of Achilles Fics, so I decided to do a fic-rec of some of my favourites so far:

-The Good Soul by scarlett_the_seachild (Chapters 48/48)

Achilles/Patroclus. When Patroclus, the clumsy son of a disappointed father, is exiled to Phthia for fostering, he feels totally justified in his dislike for the king’s son. After all, who could possibly tolerate someone so arrogant, so narcissistic, and so wholly and completely everything that he wants to be?

-To Be Loved By Him  by faerierequiem (7k)

When Patroclus is framed for a crime he did not commit, a mysterious boy is his only clue to discovering who the true culprit is.

-you’ll find me in the next life, if not this one by iwillbeyourgoal (3k)

“We were lovers in a past life/i can see it in your green eyes”

Patroclus and Achilles keep bumping into each other in their reincarnations.

-Lux Aeterna by Ramonaflowersz (Chapters: 8/8)

Pat never bothers to call himself special; He’s borderline at schoolwork and may be outstanding at biology, but his life is dull in comparison with a boy that keeps popping up in his life, the much admired and arrogant Achilles. Pat would ignore him if it weren’t for the weird feeling of déjà vus and the random words popping into his head whenever they cross paths, and he’s beginning to think there might be more to this than he first thought.

(Patrochilles Reincarnation AU, where Achilles and Pat are allowed to keep their names and appearances in exchange for their memories on earth. At least, that was the plan).

- The Trials Of Being a Halfblood by Team_Alpha_Wolf_Squadron (Chapters: 4/4)

Achilles, son of Thetis, was sent on a supply run when he met Patroclus. While feeling like he has just found his missing piece, he finds that dating a mortal isn’t as simple as he first thought it would be.

- The Hunter’s Season by thechandrian (Chapters: 3/3)

Achilles is a nereid, a mythical sea creature, and Patroclus is the prince of a country that is famous for hunting them. They meet and fall in love.

-  Recognition by captainskellington (8k)

Patroclus didn’t need to ask who “he” was, he knew full well.


He’d been living for this day for eight years now, some twisted cocktail of hope and dread seeping through his body every time he thought of it, which was often.


He was back.


- …as the poets say by palebluedot (607)

“Do you know the story of how people came to look as they do now?”Patroclus shakes his head. “Will you tell it?”


- The Cot by thechandrian  (1k)

In which Thetis comes up with a full-proof plan to keep Patroclus and Achilles at odds by way of the worst cot in all of Greece.

- I Like You A Latte by spraycansoul (Chapters 2/2)

“Aren’t you gonna ask for my name?” Achilles teased, gesturing to the cup.Pat shrugged and gestured to the empty cafe. “Don’t need to.”“In that case, can I ask for yours?” Coffee shop/modern au. In which Pat is a barista and Achilles is an up-and-coming indie pop singer.

Enjoy!
