    Summary

    'I wouldn't ask too much of her' I ventured. 'You can't repeat the past'.
    'Can't repeat the past?' he cried incredulously. 'Why of course you can!'
    Oh, how wrong I had been that fateful day. The baking New York sun no less clouding my judgement than the drops of sweat cascading down that awe-inspiring body. Droplets which I now observe from the window of my humble little apartment as the never-ending monsoon washes away the day. Perhaps putting my thoughts to paper would finally give me the clarity I have been searching for my entire adult life. Away from the drama and the scandal and the heartache. Away from him.

    Summary

    It was hard being gay in the 1920s. You had to keep your head low, your hands at your sides, and not whisper anything related to the idea that you could be possibly homosexual. Or else there would be...consequences. Nick Carraway and his lover, Eugene Elliot, knew the trouble they were getting into when they first got together. However, after a tense year in Minneapolis, they decided to move to New York for a clean slate. There, they meet all kinds of people. People who can shatter what they had made together instantly. Will these two be able to make it through? Or will they lose each other within The Roaring 20s?

    Summary

    He was my universe, but she was his world.
    It hurt to see him smiling at her with the fondness that should have gone to me.

    Summary

    His very obviously rich neighbor, who was wearing a fine pink suit, who could probably easily buy Nick if he wanted to- who now had paw prints on his pants from where his dog had taken to jumping up on him.

    Shit.

    "Oh my God-" He gasped. "I'm so sorry about her, I-"

    "It's fine, old sport!" The man smiled and suddenly Nick realized that along with everything else- this man was a real-life Adonis.

    Summary

    Nick finds it silly, really. It shouldn't matter that he's not so obsessed with acting the part, being macho and in charge or whatever. At the end of the day, he's still an alpha, all the same. He just doesn't feel the need to prove it to anybody.

    Summary

    “It hurts, Gatsby. Help me,” Nick babbled his stubby fingernails digging into his arms suddenly, “ it hurts so much. I feel as if I have being burned.” he whimpered again. Jay was at a loss, should he? He wasn’t sure if the consequences were worthy of this. He would lose Nick if this went sour. But Nick’s pain could he bear it if… Nick died because he went through this alone. Should he? It was too late to question that.

    He was damning them both, by turning into his driveway.

    Summary

    "A romantic readiness such as I never found in any other person and which it is not likely I shall ever find again” (The real Great Gatsby)

     

    “"So, what did you end up picking for our ‘group project’ "I say with a tinge of anger in my voice. Gatsby looks up at me with a smile I can only describe as golden, and lifts his paper to show me "shampoo project.”
    "I think this one will be fun," Gatsby says peering at me with his Ocean blue eyes. My face lights up a little red as a glance away from him, he just has too much excitement. the only thing on my mind in that moment is how much of a time-intensive project this was going to be.” (literally chapter one)

    Summary

    Oh, wouldn't that be a sight? Sleepy Nick, hair disheveled and cheeks pressed up against his pillow, eyes bleary with tiredness- he was pulled out of his fantasy when he heard the moans coming out of Nick's bedroom.

    Oh, he must be waking up- but the moans and groans continued. Perhaps he's hurt? In a moment of concern and wonder, he opened the door.

    Gatsby felt his mouth dry.

    God, that was a sight, wasn't it? Disheveled hair, cheek pressed against the pillow, sweat precipitating around his forehead, eyes glazed with arousal and- Jesus Christ.

    Summary

    ANNOUNCEMENT, 6 May 2021: As many of you know, I made this work inaccessible months ago in order to expand it to novel length and seek publication both in light of your enthusiastic feedback over the years and in light of the fact that the original novel by Fitzgerald entered the public domain in January 2021. Now, I'm pleased to say that The Pursued and the Pursuing, in its new novel-length form, will be coming out later this year from the traditional publishing imprint of DartFrog Books (DartFrog Blue). I have therefore reduced the first four chapters of this work to brief teaser snippets and emptied the content of the latter two instead of deleting them so as to preserve the comments. As it is now more than double its original length, there will be a significant amount of content in the novel that you have not seen before. Watch this space (and my Tumblr).

    UPDATE, 20 July 2021: The publication date/pre-oder shipping date is 9/28/21. Preordering has been available for a couple of weeks now; given that this is AO3, you will need to visit my Tumblr (tag: "the pursued and the pursuing") for the links.

    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?"

    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

    The man moves fluidly, deliberately. Nick recalls nights - early mornings really - on the lawn, twinkling lights, and slow waltzes. Recalls sure hands on his waist, a laughing mouth. He knew, even then, in the clutches of the idealism only felt at such an age, that the dance was a joke, a product of too much champagne and bravado. Still, he couldn’t keep from treasuring the closeness, storing the memory away for colder days. Now, in the heat of the man’s gaze, he’s glad he did. The man feels familiar, as he finally reaches Nick’s side, leaning sidelong against the bar, his body heat making the space between them impossibly smaller.

    Summary

    (inspired by an idea my friend and i came up with so this is dedicated to her)

    Nick Carraway is hopelessly in love with Jay Gatsby. He thinks he's been pretty good at hiding it until Jordan tells him a rumour started by Tom but Gatsby doesn't know of it yet. Not caring about the consequences of his own reputation, Nick agrees to take Jay's offer of going to the pool.
