Author's Notes[edit]

History is written by the victors, and usually the straight white male victors. If this story is fabricated, then it stands for a hundred other stories and a hundred other voices that have gone unheard. Ixtapa is a character from my own mind. All other names and places are accurate to the best of my ability. I could not for the life of me find a reliable account of where Hernando de Soto or Francisco Pizarro were and what they were doing between November 1532 and July 1533, so I chose the version that best suited my story.

I have absolutely no idea what the Incan views on homosexuality were. We don't have any written records of the Inca at all, or at least none that we can read. The Aztecs did at least recognize homosexuality in their culture. Tezcatlipoca, Ixtapa's patron deity, was the god of sorcery and (according to some sources) male love (or at least lust).

Bonus: Ixtapa's Story, the bonus prequel to Ixtapa of the Green Eyes. Ixtapa's backstory, if you liked him and wanted to know more.
