Another Mile Stone
I want Alexios to look like Theo over there. Nicely toned bronze body with dark hair and eyes. Greeks... Gotta love 'em! The other youth in my story, Galen, should look similar.
He's a forceful, take charge kind of guy. A confidant man who knows exactly who he is and how to get what he wants. And what he wants is Alexios.
Picture him with dark hair with streaks of silver at the temples, in his beard and chest hair. I can hear at least one, and probably both, of my beta readers swooning.
Apollo has also taken an interest in Alexios and intends to have Alexios pay him homage. As a deity, he has taken mortals as lovers before; however, his male lovers usually come to a bad end.
If "Alexios' Fate" were yaoi, it would be classified as harem. Alexios has several men courting him after their own fashion. Each of his lovers comes from different circumstances. Apollo is a god, Lykos a king and Galen a slave. Who will Alexios give his heart to?
