Jack Dawson… Penniless artist who wins a ticket onto Titanic in 1912, attends a first class dinner, develops a taste for the finer things in life, pockets the Heart of the Ocean, survives the sinking, pawns the diamond, spends the following ten years building his wealth and in 1922 moves to West Egg as Jay Gatsby… Millionaire with a shady past and fear of swimming pools.
Okay…. so at first I thought that this was absolutely ridiculous. But I’ve done a wee bit of research and apparently Jack was 20 during Titanic which was in 1912… and in 1917, when Jay meets Daisy and falls in love, he is 27 years old. Which is only a 2 year difference… so maybe Jack lied about his age when he was found so that he couldn’t be connected to his past? Also, Rose and Daisy have a couple of common denominators. They are both rich and they both have the names of flowers. Perhaps Jack or Jay was looking for Rose when he found Daisy, a new flower that he fell for just as he had fallen for Rose. Selling the diamond makes sense I suppose.
The only thing that doesn’t make sense to me is why Jack would change his name to Jay and lie about his age for any reason. I mean, I suppose if you suddenly have a diamond worth tons and tons of money, you are going to want to be subtle about it.
Another thing are the personality differences between the two people. They are much too different to be the same person. Of course, the years and massively hard-bearing events could change a man…
In conclusion. Maybe. I accept.
