Characters & Pairings
- Daisy Buchanan/Jay Gatsby- This pairing is the focus of the whole novel, and was at one point canon. However, during the timeline described in the novel, they are not together.
- Nick Carraway/Jordan Baker- A canon pairing for a portion of the novel.
- Daisy Buchanan/Tom Buchanan- A married couple, completely canon.
- Jay Gatsby/Nick Carraway- the only M/M pairing. Pretty rare, but there is an article written about it.
