    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

    Izuku Midoriya looked rather meek and plain on the outside, especially when you consider that he was apparently quirkless. However, looks can be deceiving. Underneath the fluffy green hair and bright, starstruck emerald eyes is a genius with a quirk that is much more powerful than it seems.

    Having been rejected from U.A. High School's hero course for unfair and extremely biased reasons, Midoriya changes course, assuming a new identity and starting a new goal that will shake the foundation of Hero Society and the world to its core.

    As Midoriya says goodbye to his past, Mikumo Akatani takes the stage, ready to prove all of his doubters wrong about him and his quirk. Thankfully, he won't be alone. With Team Tachiagaru, he will conquer the world.

    Summary

    Do you remember in kindergarten, how you’d meet a kid and know nothing about them, then ten seconds later you’d be playing like you were best friends, because you didn’t have to be anyone but yourself?

    For Carlos, meeting EJ for the first time felt like that. And maybe the feeling was more than reciprocated.

    Summary

    Jack explores himself and the world through style, social media and sugar.

    @jack051817 · 12-04
    [ Jack is filming himself on the front camera. In the background are treetops and a clear blue sky. The tips of his ears and nose are slightly red. He waves, his nails painted gold. His breath gets foggy when he speaks.
    "Hello! My name is Jack! Claire told me people from tiktok keep asking if I have my own tiktok, and now I do! Very nice to meet you, people on tiktok."
    He smiles. ]
