This was sweet, I liked Achillies assuring Patroclus that he wouldn't have chosen Briseis over him.

I loved it! I am in complete denial about Patroclus' death in Troy, so I'm happy with this!

Interesting AU and well written :)
| Spiritblaze chapter 2 . 7/5/2013
I feel that this was a more than fulfilling conclusion. :)
That being said, the reunion here between Achilles and Patroclus is rather sweet; I love how Pat's "inner child" reared its head, especially in reference to him getting jealous over Achilles giving his attention to somebody else, or how he is naive enough to believe that Achilles could ever stop loving him. Very cute!

YaaY the 2 part ... wow that was amazing :)
I liked how you pointed that part of the reasons why pat took Achilles armor is , to somehow get his attention ... this was my point of view as will .. :)
great ending of course :) somehow I expected more fulff ( Dont ask me how Lol )
Thanks for writing such an amazing story :D
PS : I think it should be , " how could you do doubt my
"love " insted of '" affection "

WTH! Thats not at all what i was thinking! I thought that hector would demand that achilles leave troy and the next time they met one would die! Love the ending though i do think that achilles only used bresies.. Corect me if im wrong
still awesome story cann't wait for the next one! :-)

I also enjoy the bonding in your stories and the brother moments between Ach and Pat. This line was awesome and brilliantly true of Ach.
"If that were true, then I would be."
I like that Ach forgave him so easily too.
As always, awesome story.

I was SO excited to see a new story by you! You are an amazing writer! I can't wait to see more!

"He'd had no more chance of defeating Hector than he would have had of defeating Achilles himself."
"And what is Achilles to you, Patroclus, that you could come by his armor and fool his own loyal Myrmidons so handily?"
"And what else besides that? I will have my answers from you, child, though I would prefer not to harm you further in the process of doing so."
"Achilles is my cousin. He has raised me and been like both a father and a brother to me."
"Agamemnon has been Achilles' enemy more than you these past few days, and Achilles withdrew his troops entirely because of it. I do love my cousin, but sometimes his anger consumes him to the point where he can think of nothing but his own wounded pride."
"His own cousin Briseis had not been much older than this youth, after all, and now her grieving family could only assume that she had been a casualty of the battle on the beach."
I really, really like all these lines! :D
Anyways, it's so exciting to see a new story from you, if I do say so myself, and I simply cannot wait to see what happens next!
I love how you portrayed Hector here - realistic and keeping true to his nature. I imagine he just wants Briseis back, right? She's to him what Patroclus is to Achilles, after all, and when Pat said "last night," I winced. He probably wants to castrate Achilles now! xD

First off, I was stoked as always to see a new story update in my email.
I loved the Hector/Patroclus interaction, and I can't wait to see how this wraps up.
| Mythical and Magic chapter 1 . 7/1/2013
Interesting... I always thought hector to be a kind caring person as he seemed so guilty that he killed pat in the film... Anyway love ur storys! I am so very interested as to how this is going 2 be resolved... I hav a idea but i will wait and see if i was right. Cannt wait for part 2 :-)
| Trollmela chapter 1 . 7/1/2013
You've started posting! I love it already! I like how Hector doesn't want to kill or torture Patroclus but is willing to do what's necessary. I think that really describes him. He doesn't always like what he has to do for his people or his family, but he'll do it anyway.
I also like Patroclus in this. He's realized that he's bitten off more than he can chew, and finds out that it's not quite as easy as it sounds to be heroic.
I really like it and am looking forward to what you're going to do with this story :)

yaaay , a new Halo Troy fic *so happy *
where do I start ? First : I commend for this great idea . Its always very interesting to read a fic where Pat survives the battle :)
- I love dialogue between hector & pat , and yes Achilles is all these things to him : commander , teacher , guardian, cousin & brother .
- I love your characterization of hector :) he is one of my favorite
- my favorite line was , " lad with apparent easy access to Achilles' armor must be worth a handsome sum."
I just love the whole thing :) , I can see where this is headed and cant wait for the part 2 :)
Thank you for writing
