    Summary

    “It is believed an invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break.”

    However, I guess circumstance does play a big role in this so-called fate. This is now Nick’s third chance at love, from back out West the first two were complicated, one chance being his reason for moving. His third meeting is with his mysterious neighbor, Jay Gatsby who is still strung up on Daisy Buchanan.

    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

    Summary

    A very short fic I wrote for a class! It takes a lot of inspiration from the book, and picks up near the end, right before Gatsby is shot. It's an alternate ending with a lot of research behind it! If there's a positive response, I'm open to continuing it.

    Summary

    In my previous fic 'If I Forget Thee' Nick gives a first hint at how he and his lover James went on a journey literally around the world.
    They officially travel as business partners and good friends, taking great care not to disclose the true nature of their relationship because homosexuality was punishable by law in most countries then. Spending time together on foreign soil has its challenges, and apart from sigthseeing, James has his own private objective to pursue.
    Interested? Have a good read then!

    Summary
