"Dog Days" is a ficlet by poicale based on Mary Renault's 1953 novel The Charioteer. It is set some time after the end of the novel, when Laurie and Ralph are living together.


The summer heat doesn't affect Ralph, who has lived in the tropics. Laurie, on the other hand, is too hot to chase Patch: he just lies in the hammock, sipping lemonade.


"Dog Days" was written for the 2007 Dog Days of Summer Challenge.
