Triumph[1] is a drabble which provides insight into Bagoas’ feelings when he wins the dance competition (set during the timeframe of The Persian Boy.

Comments received on the drabble include:

  • I adore this. Perfect Bagoas and I love his reflection on adulation that Alexander is so accustomed to and the end is absolutely lovely. Gorgeous language: "mount the stairs on Eros-gifted wings" and the last line, "The others recede and all sound fades except for the beating of my heart." Could anything be more moving? Be still my own beating heart.[2]heartofoshun
