    Summary

    Nick Carraway's very straight, very cis, and very in denial. Unfortunately, he happens to be next door to Jay Gatsby- who's threatening to tear down all his walls. He also happens to be head-over-heels "in love" with Nick's cousin.

    When baseball prodigy Jordan Baker got their scholarship to East Egg Preparatory School, they didn't anticipate it to be such a miserable switch. Luckily, they still have Daisy with them. Daisy, who'd been their best friend forever. Daisy, who they'd been hopelessly pining for since Sophomore year.

    Jay Gatsby has a plan. Get popular, get back with Daisy, and go to a good college. Be a "real man." But five years is a long, long time to keep up a facade.

    Myrtle Wallis hasn't exactly had an easy go of things. She works a shitty job, goes to a shitty school, and has two shitty boyfriends. But meeting Chrysanthemum Lane might just be the push she needs to finally kick herself into shape. And it doesn't hurt that Chrys is downright gorgeous either.

    Daisy Fay seems like she has it all. She's rich, popular, head cheerleader, and dating the goddamn quarterback. But Tom's a jerk, and it doesn't help that Jordan's so nice and witty... no, Daisy's not gay. What are you talking about?

    Summary

    It was hard being gay in the 1920s. You had to keep your head low, your hands at your sides, and not whisper anything related to the idea that you could be possibly homosexual. Nick Carraway and his lover, Eugene Elliot, knew the trouble they were getting into when they first got together. However, after a tense year in Minneapolis, they decided to move to New York for a clean slate. There, they meet all kinds of people. People who can shatter what they have made instantly. Will these two be able to make it through? Or will they lose each other within The Roaring 20s?

    Summary

    Nick Carraway, a young man from Minnesota, moves to New York in the summer of 1922 to learn about the bond business. He rents a house in the West Egg district of Long Island, a wealthy but unfashionable area populated by the new rich, a group who have made their fortunes too recently to have established social connections and who are prone to garish displays of wealth. Nick’s next-door neighbor in West Egg is a mysterious man named Jay Gatsby, who lives in a gigantic Gothic mansion and throws extravagant parties every Saturday night.

    Summary

    ANNOUNCEMENT, 6 May 2021: As many of you know, I made this work inaccessible months ago in order to expand it to novel length and seek publication both in light of your enthusiastic feedback over the years and in light of the fact that the original novel by Fitzgerald entered the public domain in January 2021. Now, I'm pleased to say that The Pursued and the Pursuing, in its new novel-length form, will be coming out later this year from the traditional publishing imprint of DartFrog Books (DartFrog Blue). I have therefore reduced the first four chapters of this work to brief teaser snippets and emptied the content of the latter two instead of deleting them so as to preserve the comments. As it is now more than double its original length, there will be a significant amount of content in the novel that you have not seen before. Watch this space (and my Tumblr).

    UPDATE, 7 June 2021: Publication date has been set as 9/28/21. Preordering goes live in the last week of this month (June); given that this is AO3, you will need to keep an eye on my Tumblr for the link.

    Summary

    'I wouldn't ask too much of her' I ventured. 'You can't repeat the past'.
    'Can't repeat the past?' he cried incredulously. 'Why of course you can!'
    Oh, how wrong I had been that fateful day. The baking New York sun no less clouding my judgement than the drops of sweat cascading down that awe-inspiring body. Droplets which I now observe from the window of my humble little apartment as the never-ending monsoon washes away the day. Perhaps putting my thoughts to paper would finally give me the clarity I have been searching for my entire adult life. Away from the drama and the scandal and the heartache. Away from him.

    Summary

    "I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it's these things I'd believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything." ― F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    Summary

    So for school, we read The Great Gatsby, and later we had an assignment where we wrote our own fanfictions based on the book. The series will have my and another friend's fanfic we felt very proud of. They had a 5-page limit so if things seem a little less fleshed out then they could have been that's the reason. One of the requirements was that we emulate Fitzgerald's style of writing so if you didn't enjoy reading the book these might not be the best thing to read. I think thats everything

    Summary:
    Gatsby comes back to New York with the intention of confessing his love to Daisy and courting her off to Europe where they would be able to live the rest of their lives away from the trials of New York. But tragedy befalls the two and reality soon hits Gatsby square in the face.

    Um Basically Gatbsy and Daisy have a toxic relationship and things don't go well.
