    Summary

    Officer Jay Gatsby was the man of Nick Carraway's dreams and obsessions. Meeting him for the first time at his cousin's party for the fellow soldiers that were going away, Nick knows that Gatsby only has eyes for Daisy. This doesn't stop him from dreaming though. After being caught in a compromising position with his hand and a night that Nick would never forget, he writes it all down in his journal. He meets up with Gatsby several times throughout his life before finally meeting him once more when he moves to the West Egg, where our tale really takes off. Sex, lies, and blackmail follow Nick Carraway through his tale and we watch as he is consumed by the man we all know as Jay Gatsby.

    Summary

    There was no bullet in the end, thank god. Yes, no one was shot but there were plenty of unseen wounds. Scars and fractures that ran deep beneath our persons, slowly chipping away at the last dredges of sanity we were desperately clinging to. And when it all came to a head, Jays ring slipped from his finger. Allowing a small clack of metal against marble to conclude the final act of whatever horrific dream-turned-awry I had been dragged into.

    Summary

    I believe that once Gatsby fully realized his future dream with Daisy was finally unattainable, he found the next best thing. Which happened to be the ‘Golden boy’ next door that shared my name. Granted Jay’s looks both aroused me and fueled my late night fantasies in my bed when I couldn’t sleep, but I didn’t know at the time if my new friend enjoyed the company of other men quite like I did. And besides, if I came on to him and he wasn’t like me, would he arrest me?

    Summary

    You’d think being the prom queen while your ex is the prom king would be awkward, to say the least, but, you haven’t had the year I have. And I’ve had one hell of a year. You see it all started when a transfer student, named Jay Gatsby, showed up a week into October. It all kind of spiraled from there.
