    Summary

    Essentially, what I'm doing is taking the Great Gatsby and making it into something that doesn't rip my heart out and make me cry like a baby. Nick is in love with Jay but doesn't realize it, and Jay is... well, he's Jay. This will be rather lighthearted and probably a little cliché, but at least you won't have to suffer through angst. It examines Jay and Nick's relationship but with a much happier ending. It is partly inspired by own experience as a gay man. A quick note, though: it will have brief moments of derealization and some "existential" pondering, so if you are really sensitive to that, you might want to avoid this one; sorry!

    Summary

    When Daisy doesn't kill Myrtle, Nick takes Gatsby home and sleeps with him as a distraction. And keeps sleeping with him. Everybody lives and it would be fine, if Nick doesn't begin to develop Hanahaki disease because of his love for Gatsby and refuses to tell him he loves him, convinced he's just a place-holder for his cousin.

    Summary

    He could already feel the pain forming. He'd heard of the infection before, everyone had; they called it the flower spitting disease. He'd heard people say it was from one of those far off Eastern countries, even that it could kill you.
    Of course Nick, the person who'd never travelled out of the country in his life after the war, would get it.
    Everyone had heard about the disease but no one seemed to know how to cure it, or even what caused it; so the most he could do was lie about his sudden interest in flowers, and try to claim that the delicate little jonquils and daffodils now flooding his home were a tasteful preference. He remembered once hearing Jordan say that it was caused by one-sided love, but that was just foolish.

    A disease couldn't be caused by love.

    Summary

    "The world is moving on around him. It’s throwing him around, and he is powerless. He can’t even grip onto something - someone - and take control. Gatsby had been that anchor. But he is no more, and Nick just lays suspended in a river that won’t wait for him to learn how to swim. He isn’t drowning, but he isn’t breathing.
    The world could look ahead. They could face tomorrow.
    He can’t."

    Summary

    The lights flickered and were then extinguished, casting the house into total darkness. Jay Gatsby looked up from the papers he was reading and stared into black space, looking for any objects he could identify. Sighing, he got up from his desk and carefully made his way through the room to the space were he thought the floor to ceiling window should be. Gripping the thick velvety curtains, he yanked the fabric aside to reveal the moonlit gardens below. Beyond the hedges, the electric lamps in the street had died, no longer emitting their usual bright radiance. Gatsby sighed again. It was the second time this month the electrical system had failed. He would have to get someone to check it. Gatsby’s gaze drifted down to the little bungalow beside his grand mansion. It was dark there too, no light to be seen. All of a sudden, the front door swung open and a young man stepped out. After quickly glancing down the street, he disappeared again. Gatsby smiled as an idea came to him. Maybe he wouldn’t have to be so lonely tonight after all.
