A good friend of mine hosted a dtiys challenge with her Charlastor drawing inspired piece of a Vocaloid video (do not remember which, but it was butterflies). I wanted to take part in it with a Great Gatsby inspired piece!

Someone sent a comment via AO3 about wanting to read the Great Gatsby because of the What To Do series (specifically the Flu story) and my day is absolutely made. There’s nothing better when you’re writing than knowing something you wrote made people want to read more.
Side note? The Flu one is probably my favorite. For me, the scene where Caline breaks free and says her name for the first time was just the best. The wedding story broke me, the beach adventure made me happy, the whole pregnant arc was satisfying and the relationship stuff was always an uncocmfortable challenge (the last story in Gina’s arc still feels like an after-school special to me), but hands down, Caline’s first fight scene was my favorite.

The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald
10/10
The Great Gatsby, a tragedy love story where the guy is ripped apart from the girl; sounds cliche?
No.
Fitzgerald crafted a masterpiece, the pathetic fallacy and nature imagery is extremely vivid dancing through your mind and reinforcing your imagination. The extended metaphor of the green light at the end of the dock at Daisy and Tom Buccanan’s house, indicates the desire that Gatsby has for Daisy and the hope the Gatsby held onto for the five years they were seperated, which makes the novel all the more depressing.
Fitzgerald has crafted Jay Gatsby beautifully and has made him isolated in a crowd at his own parties, which he throws to attract Daisy. The suspense of will Gatsby and Daisy finally have their happy ending, makes the novel all the more intriguing and distressing after reading the final few chapters.
This novel is one of the few I hold to heart and will be a forever favourite of mine of which I highly recommend.

I would like to point out that Nick Carraway was most likely bisexual because of Jordan and that guy in the elevator (it was heavily implied that they slept together.) And you know, that he had a huge crush on his best friend

gold, glitter & fame // playlist
they wanted the shining spotlights, the screaming crowds, gold chains, silk dresses with diamonds, glittery heels, wine red lips, and everyone’s love. to pour their hearts out on the stage & to sip on expensive champagnes. but all the gold, glitter & fame comes with a price.

Roses are red
The light is green
I’m dying in a pool
To represent the futility of the American dream

okay so i have a thot
what if great gatsby modern webseries adaptation, but nick is doing a series of lengthy commentary channel expose videos on gatsby, etc, after gastby's death, because the rich characters are all high profile tech giants, influencers etc and as someone close to the drama he's in the perfect position to spill allll the tea and he's just mad enough to do it
intervowen throughout could be vlog footage, social media media screenshot, text correspondences, news headlines etc to really piece together the story in an epostolary/found footagey way

Hamlet: angsty college student with mommy issues has a lot of anxiety about a lot of things
Othello: white dude doesn’t get job promotion and decides to make it everyone’s problem
Frankenstein: med school dropout realizes that his actions have consequences
The Great Gatsby: a huge simp, socially awkward alcoholic, and everyone else is kinda shitty
Lord of the Flies: kids suck and they terrify me
Beowulf: jock fights angry emo kid, does some other stuff, dies
Jane Eyre: don’t trust men he might have his deranged wife locked in the third floor of his house
Dracula: cowboys vs vampires
The metamorphosis: bug
