    Summary

    Now Jay (elegant, handsome, pretty Jay) probably thought Nick was…attracted to him. Which Nick was. Jay probably also thought Nick was a fool, which Nick also was, or at least felt like at the moment.

    Summary

    Jay Gatsby was not jealous, and Meyer Wolfsheim had no son. Are both of these statements even true?

    Jay Gatsby was confident in his position of Nick Carraway's best friend. Maxton Wolfsheim, however, wants more than that. Nick on the other hand realises that passivity doesn't work when you are the subject. Will Gatsby sort out his feeling before it's too late?

    Nick must choose: The gangster who brings him life, or the great who had held his heart on first sight.

    One things for sure, the summer of 1922 will be a hot one.

    Summary

    After the terrible hot day in New York, and the tragic carried home, Jay Gatsby told Nick Carraway everything. After that talk, he was compelled to send Nick a letter. You can always blame the post office for not delivering letters in time.

    Summary

    Nick is anxious to begin his first year at college, both in a good and bad way. But he’s even more anxious about his roommate. Jay Gatsby is an enigma that Nick just can’t figure out. Why does his heart clench up every time he smiles at him, why do his palms sweat, why does he stutter. Nick fears the worst. But through out the year, Jay Gatsby isn’t all that he seems to be. Can he really last the whole year without falling in love but more importantly, can he trust him?

    Summary

    This was an English assignment that got me very inspired. Gatsby decides to write Nick a letter and perhaps it sparks into something new.

    Summary

    "I can buy you the whole damn city, old sport; anything you can possibly dream of," Gatsby whispers feverishly into Nick's ear, pressing a kiss to the other man's temple. "The New Amsterdam Theatre, Central Park Zoo, even....hell, even Lady Liberty, baby."

    Nick laughs and shakes his head, the liquor still warm in his throat and causing the world around him to spin too fast. If it weren't for Gatsby's arms around his waist, he'd surely be laying in a heap on the ground.

    "You don't need to buy me anything, Jay," he insists softly, feeling as if he's said such a thing too many times to count now.

    "But I could. I could buy-"

    Nick shakes his head again, turning around in Gatsby's arms and silencing him with a a lopsided smile and a sloppy kiss.

    "You could, yes, but you don't have to. In fact...in fact you could sell this grand palace of yours, Jay, and....and lose all of your damned money in the stock market, and I'd still want you."

    Gatsby doesn't respond, looking torn between disbelief and tears.

    Summary

    What if Jay didn’t stay at home following the car accident? What if Nick had offered him shelter? What would happen if Jay Gatsby had died, but James Gatz came back to life?

    Or, the fix-it fic where Nick made one decision that changed everything.

    Summary

    In which Gatsby begins to fall in love with Nick, and although it does indeed save his life, he has a rather hard time letting go of the past and coming to terms with his feelings. And kind, loyal Nick, who has been in love with Gatsby practically since they first met, is ever so patient.

    Summary

    Who was Gatsby? Who was he to me when the body was found in the pool? I remember his endless motion, his undiluted extravagance, and most acutely, his enchanting smile. He had the whole world when he reached out to it, yet he allowed himself to live in a bubble from where he could safely desire that which was out of his reach. He was human, and somehow more, and somehow less.

     

    Following the events of The Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway returns West, only to find himself borne back into chaos as odd, mysterious phone calls and letters, all claimed to be from the late Jay Gatsby, repeatedly arrive at his house.
