Everyone who thinks that Patroclus and Achilles shared a sexually relationship are idiots that know nothing about the Trojan War. I'm so glad you're not one of those idiots. Great story, I could almost see the emotion in Achilles' eyes!

This sounds a lot like the original. It was a good read. Thanks. You should try to make it longer, and add Patroclus's point of view, when talking after death.

Just to play devil's advocate with your author's note, Homer would not have made up the characters, but (at most) compiled one version of a common and popular story. To give Homer even less credit for the Iliad, there is the theory that there was not any such person as Homer, but that he is a sort of personification of an entire poetic tradition. Still, whatever the case of Homer, the authors and thinker who do attribute a sexual relationship to Achilles and Patroclus were all from considerably later.

In any case, however, I do very much like your piece. I am particularly fascinated by the dynamic of the relationship (whatever its nature) between Achilles and Patroclus, and I think you have done a very nice job of exploring it. Thanks for the great read!
