Day 24/ Book 24
The ruthless soldier Achilles has been keeping Hector hostage this entire time! Now, that’s not very noble, now is it?
I ordered Thetis to tell Achilles to release his body immediately! It worked out well, I think. King Priam and Achilles had a nice little chat, along with a hot meal and a decent nap. Achilles even prepared Hector’s body for a proper burial! I knew there was a human inside of him.
All is fair and well in the world of war.
Day 22/ Book 22
Everyone knows it is bound to happen… The fight between Achilles and Hector is upon us.
I weighed Hector’s fate on my lovely scale today. It is not looking too good for him… but we already knew that.
Day 21/Book 21
Today was an eventful day on Mt. Olympus! THE GODS HAVE GONE MAD! They wouldn’t stop fighting with each other…well, I don’t mean to make that seem like they gods have never fought before. It is definitely not something that is rare in our immortal world. Like this one time, my brothers and I… that’s besides the point.
Anyway, you wonder why I said it was a better idea to keep the gods out of the war! The poor mortals down there are probably tearing as much of their hair out as I am. Although, I have to admit, at least I have some sort of entertainment in the midst of this war. Nothin’ like seeing your children bicker at each other and throwing outlandish insults back and forth. Its good to be a god.
Oh, and Achille’s fought a river. Congrats on conquering…water. Mighty Soldier, you are.
Day 19-20/ Book 19-20
As it seems Athena’s restoration of Achilles’ strength has done him well, I give up.
ALL GODS ARE NOW FREE TO DO WHAT THEY WANT. JUST DON’T SCREW IT UP.
My wife Hera and Poseidon are already off scheming. We will see how this goes.
Day 18/ Book 18
Thetis, Thetis, Thetis. Poor woman is so worried about her son, she is begging my good son Hephaestus to build him an even bigger and better shield.
He chose the fate of death in glory, but I suppose it would be the right thing to do to help the poor soldier out after losing his best mate. After all, he is the son of our family.
Day 17/ Book 17
Just some words of advice for Hector: I suggest you stop running around your town flaunting your arrogance, you have a big battle ahead of you. Let me remind you that your fate is not something to be proud of.
Day 16/ Book 16
MY SON. OUT OF ALL THE ACHEAN SOLDIERS, THEY KILL MY SON.
I have no words right now.
I will be weeping for a while now, my own son was sacrificed by the foolish Acheans. Granted, it was probably his fault he got killed, but I blame the army. CURSE ALL OF YOU.
Oh, Patroclus died disguised in Achilles’ armor, too, but whatever. My son is dead.
Day 15/ Book 15
MY BROTHERS DO NOT SEEM TO UNDERSTAND THE IDEA OF AUTHORITY.
I wake up from another one of my wondrous naps to find that my brother Poseidon has once again taken it upon himself to play defense for the Acheans. There is also a growing number of injured Achean soldiers.
What does an all powerful God like me have to do to get some order around here?!
While sending my message to my idiotic older brother, I went ahead and sent a message to Hector through Apollo. I think it is about time he helped the soldiers of Troy and have some sort of balance on the battlefield. Be warned though, Hector, Troy’s fate is still sealed with disaster.
