F. Scott Fitzgerald for the Signs
  • Aries: "The fire blazing in her dark and injured heart seemed to glow around her like a flame."
  • Taurus: "We’ll survive, you and I."
  • Gemini: "There were girls who would tear you apart with their lips."
  • Cancer: "Two souls are sometimes created together and in love before they’re born."
  • Leo: "I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything."
  • Virgo: "Whatever I am, you did it."
  • Libra: "Beauty means the scent of roses and then the death of roses."
  • Scorpio: "The sadness of the past is with me always."
  • Sagittarius: "I want excitement; and I don’t care what form it takes or what I pay for it, so long as it makes my heart beat."
  • Capricorn: "All life is just a progression toward and then a recession from one phrase— I love you."
  • Aquarius: "I shall go on shining as a brilliantly meaningless figure in a meaningless world."
  • Pisces: "She looks at him once more, with infinite longing, infinite sadness."

I still can’t believe I was Straight™ for like fourteen years, I look back on it and just ??? How??? Child, did you never see a girl? And nonbinary folks are like legit ethereal deities, how did you survive not knowing you were pansexual how

concept: we’re twenty five, i’m starting my diplomatic career in London, he’s finishing his PhD and living the high life around Italy. We saw each other the last time three months ago, for our engagement party in the French Riviera. We talk on the phone every night when the dinner parties we attend are over, I send him my books with love letters inside, he always sends them back with pressed roses hidden between the pages. We live our lives pursuing different kinds of success, living love with freedom around the world, but each other’s arms always feel like coming home. When I get off my plane in Rome, his elegant coat and his scarf welcome me back. He hugs me tightly, hiding his face on my neck, and we walk to our apartment hand in hand. We make love and go to the opera. I never feel trapped, but I’m not lonely.

I shall go on shining as a brilliantly meaningless figure in a meaningless world.

After a few drinks, I usually became part of the fairy world of Robin’s guests: dames in white fur coats dancing on the balcony among clouds of smoke, elegant young men tangled to long-haired beauties on the hotel sofa, women who came and went between the rooms, talking about politics and art. And I frequently made love.
