    Summary

    “And then, I heard you again. I don’t know how long it was since the last time I’d heard your voice, but then you were there—” he points to the desk, and to the manuscript. “And I knew.”
    The mystery of what he knew eludes me as I look at him. I never would have expected him to return, not as a ghost, following my voice and finding comfort in it.
    “And you wrote about me. You wrote a whole book about me, old sport.” He faces me. “What in the world would the beautiful Nick Carraway write about me for?”
    “You changed my life, Jay Gatsby.” I start to reach for his hand, then stop. I smile, then he mirrors it.
    “It feels good to hear someone say that for a change,” he says.

    When Nick's tell-all book "The Great Gatsby" is released, he doesn't expect it to be a hit around the nation. He also doesn't expect the ghost of Gatsby to haunt him, anxiously hoping the true nature of their relationship isn't revealed. When rumors trail and haunt him in his Chicago haven, he reluctantly takes a trip to New York and ends up confronting the hidden stories of his book, and the repercussions of the book itself.

    Summary

    In summary, the West Egg was home to the stupidly rich. It was excess and delirium and secrets kept in crystal boxes. It was queer, and queerest of them all was my neighbor.
    But I digress.
    --
    Nick Carraway moves to the West Egg to reconnect with old family, write a few pretty articles for his benefactor, and set the record straight about some unsavory rumors surrounding him.
    Instead, he meets Jay Gatsby. This is his account on what happened before Gatsby's disappearance.

    Summary

    When Daisy doesn't kill Myrtle, Nick takes Gatsby home and sleeps with him as a distraction. And keeps sleeping with him.

    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

    Pamela Buchanan, the daughter of Tom and Daisy Buchanan, and her life in the aftermath of the events that took place in The Great Gatsby.


    I believe I was 4 the first time I heard the name "Jay Gatsby."

    It had been during the summer months of 1924, at my aunt Jordan's home.

    I had been drawing when I overheard a conversation that would prove to have much more weight than I originally believed.

    "It'll be two years now, in a month."


    "Aunt Jordan, was Uncle Nick...did he love Gatsby?"

    "...yes, I do think Nick loved Gatsby."

    "...did you love Uncle Nick?" She shook her head.

    "Only as friends."  She looked away from me, back at the Sound and the afternoon sky. "I could empathize with him. I understood how it felt."

    She got out a locket, rusted from years of exposure to the elements, one I recognized as the matching piece of my mother's.

    She opened it and inside was, indeed, a photo of my mother.

    And suddenly, it all made sense.


    "...my God, it has been 20 years, hasn't it?"
