    Summary

    When Daisy doesn't kill Myrtle, Nick takes Gatsby home and sleeps with him as a distraction. And keeps sleeping with him. Everybody lives and it would be fine, if Nick doesn't begin to develop Hanahaki disease because of his love for Gatsby and refuses to tell him he loves him, convinced he's just a place-holder for his cousin.

    May 2021 Update: This fic is shortly to have a sequel.

    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

    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. 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 have made instantly. Will these two be able to make it through? Or will they lose each other within The Roaring 20s?

    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

    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, 7 June 2021: Publication date has been set as 9/28/21. Preordering goes live in the last week of this month (June); given that this is AO3, you will need to keep an eye on my Tumblr for the link.

    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

    "I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it's these things I'd believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything." ― F. Scott Fitzgerald.
