“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter - tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther… And one fine morning - So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.”

The Great Gatsby (2013) dir. Baz Luhrmann

moodboard: the great gatsby

“ I have an idea that Gatsby himself didn’t believe it would come, and perhaps he no longer scared. If that was true that he must have felt that he had lost the old warm world, paid a high price for living too long with a single dream. he must have looked up at the unfamiliar sky through frightening leaves and shivered as he found what a grotesque thing a rose is and how raw the sunlight was upon the scarcely created grass. A new world, material without being reran, where poor ghosts, breathing dreams like air, drifted fortuitously about….like that ashen, fantastic figure gliding toward him through the amorphous trees.” 

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn’t beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

“His heart beat faster and faster as Daisy’s white face came up to his own. He knew that when he kissed this girl, and forever wed his unutterable visions to her perishable breath, his mind would never romp again like the mind of God. So he waited, listening for a moment longer to the tuning fork that had been struck upon a star. Then he kissed her. At his lips’ touch she blossomed like a flower and the incarnation was complete.”

Flapper Reylo/ 1920s Reylo/ Reylo Great Gatsby AU Aesthetic: (well may be not an exact AU )
I confess I have been hoarding these for sometime now. I love this era and I love how gorgeous these two look.
Inspired by the reylo posts I have seen of this era from the many talented Reylo shippers notably @katawaresdoki , @ashsart, @hersisterskeeper, @nonibear11. I apologise for not linking the exact posts as I can’t link to save my life.
For my darling Agii @1captainswan1, So glad that I met you!
