Have you ever thought about the faith Achilles had in Patroclus? Achilles always waits for Patroclus.
Achilles waited for Patroclus to come to his palace. He waited for Patroclus to come closer to him to be his friend and right hand man. He waited for him to sleep together. He waited for their first kiss. He waited for Patroclus to reach him, for he was not going to leave with Chiron without him. He waited for him on the island of Skyros in order to be reunited one day. He waited for "his husband". Achilles waited to see Patroclus every evening or morning after the battle because he was his life breath. He hoped to be reunited with him because he was his home and safe place.
He waited for his return after Patroclus left in his armor for Troy. He waited for a sign or a message from his spirit. He wished that his wait would be short and that the gods would finally give his soul a rest so that he could be with Patroclus again.
He waited for Patroclus in the Underworld.
Achilles always hoped that Patroclus would find a way to be reunited with him. They are the eternal reunion.

I personally wish Achilles took after his mother's unsettling side as a child
Like a little kelp prince, so to say

“In the darkness, two shadows, reaching through the hopeless, heavy dusk. Their hands meet, and light spills in a flood like a hundred golden urns pouring out of the sun.”

Why is it that whenever i see mlm couples in the media one of them has to be incredibly feminine and the fandom will often flanderize them and make the other character coddle them like a child? REAL COUPLES ARE NOT LIKE THIS. IT ISN'T CUTE IT'S FETISHISING. PLEASE STOP. Like Patroclus is brave, a skilled warrior and healer and yet his more ferocious side is never looked into...and Wylan from six of crows is made into this child like character because he looks young and has dyslexia. Arthur being this protector of Merlin despite Merlin being incredibly powerful, more so than Arthur and more than capable of protecting himself. Even Sirius is made to be super feminine to the point where in some fics its his only personality trait other than being a 'drama queen' that Remus has to look after. It's like people cant imagine two typically masculine people in a relationship. or even two emotionally tough characters...There's nothing wrong with being feminine and expressing yourself in a typically feminine way as a boy (obviously) but why does it happen in every fandom, it's unrealistic and stereotyping. Mlm relationships don't have to be buff x princess dynamics because real people are not walking sunshines who should be treated as if they're a kid by their spouse. ITS FUCKING WEIRD.

thinking about hector having to face achilles and how scared he must have been and how many guts it took to stand up and fight him knowing beforehand that he was not leaving that battle alive.
imagine looking to your enemy's eyes and finding a shell of person; a person who hasn't eaten or slept in days, a person with absolute fury in his eyes, a person wearing the armour made by a god and fitting it. a person who genuinely has nothing to lose and worst of all a person who has come to terms with the fact that he is going to die. a person who craves it.
this is the core difference between the two of them during their final battle: hector knows he's going to die and he doesn't want to. he has a family and a newborn son to return to and a city that he knows is going to fall without him and all around has plenty of reasons to want to make it out of that fight alive. achilles also knows he's going to die but unlike Hector achilles doesn't want to be alive by this point anyway. hector is fighting for his life while achilles is fighting to try and mend his vengeful heart.
hector had everything to lose; achilles had lost everything already.
and then imagine looking into your enemy's face with pleading eyes. the enemy who has cost you so many of your brother's lives, who's made so many of your sisters into slaves. the person who you know is going to kill you. imagine looking into that person's eyes and having to beg him to at least spare your dead body and give it a proper burial. mind you, these were the times when people believed an unburied person's soul could never reach the afterlife. an unburied soldier was cursed to stay dishonored and alone, wandering through the depths of the world without a physical presence to offer.
and imagine your enemy laughing. and promising to feed your body to the dogs.
and after all of this hector still, still found it in his heart to fight him.

Hear me out
Edvin Ryding as Achilles and Omar Rudberg as Patroclus
It's perfect. Cast them right away...
Make Edvin go blonde tho. He's already a fucking prince
Omar is on the darker side (a little. I don't know how to put it) just like Patroclus
Achilles Achilles Achilles come down

Guys do you think in the middle of the war Patroclus would be choping off the heads of the Trojan soldiers, causing an absolute massacre, being absolutely terrifying. Meanwhile Achilles is staring at him from across the battlefield with "heart eyes".

I find it so interesting that the fall of Troy is not the climax of the Iliad. We are so used to watching movies were the fall of a city is the big climax but it's not, we learn about it as a narrative.
The climax is Achilles's fight with Hector, the final showdown of an epic 10 year war is a battle of two men different but it's has it's own reasons. Complex characters fighting for what they believe for, center of a conflict non of them wanted in the first place, yet they had the weigh and responsibility of it.
All the tension, the anger, the fear, the losses of the war are built up for this moment so when it's done you feel all these emotions dry out, like there's nothing left to fight for.
