Once upon a time There was an American Literature class I happened to be in. This class read The Great Gatsby and Of Mice and Men. Their assignment was to rewrite the ending of one of the books in 3-5 pages. I wrote 17 pages of an alt ending to Gatsby.
My teacher didn’t read past the second page.
She missed the part where Tom left Daisy, Daisy became a prostitute, Gatsby became a politician and married Nick, they adopted Daisy’s daughter, and rode off into the sunset in Gatsby’s big yellow car.
