#nsfw ish #gross , YEAH EXACTLY. it felt like the author couldnt decide whether to tell a Precious Young Love Story or to expand on the events of the Iliad and the relationship depicted therein, so she did both and just kind of flattened them together, with the result that theres a lot of Drama in their relationship but little real complexity or development. the trojan war was 10 years and apparently it was smooth sailing the whole way?? their relationship is either perfect or there are some nasty women (with their gross vaginas, i just remembered that really over the top Eew Nasty description of one when patroclus has sex with a woman. way to play into cissexist tropes about gay men) standing in the way of their Tru Luv. that being said i agree i was like “i cant believe im crying over something narrated by a rotting corpse”. and the part where they train with charon & eventually get together was really precious, im all for queer teens in idyllic training camps

if you are looking for a work in which achilles/patroclus is canon (albeit not the main focus of the story), but the shitty things achilles does are not glossed over, please consider: troilus and cressida by william shakespeare

revtomdildomolar whispered, ""#omg quest idk if i still have my copy of song of achilles but if i do you should read it#it. sure is a novel" omg please tell me your song of achilles opinions bc i have SUCH conflicted feelings about that book??? god"

MMMMMME TOO i feel the exact same way

on the one hand: achilles/patroclus. the ur-slash. the slash of slash. look upon my ship ye mighty and despair. just in terms of that relationship, it is a very satisfying fanfic (lets be honest here)

on the other hand: it treated its women ABYSMALLY. thetis felt like a charicature of a harping mother written by someone who hated women. achilles’ relationship with briseis was completely whitewashed in a way that seems like the author just didnt want to deal with their protagonist’s war crimes. there were probably other things, but off the top of my head it could have been a much better story if those two characters were treated with more nuance.

This is a classic `nude calendar´ when you extract everything which transparent to X-Rays, i.e. all the flesh, and therefore any remaining sensuality.
