[PART NINE] & Some News
Okay, I'm a little new at this so sorry if I mess this up first go. Because it's been 5 months since the last round even though we haven't been busy. I figured I might as well earn my keep and try to get this place alive again...




IMPORTANT: please DO NOT post prompts about any non-public people as part of a prompt. for example: randi zuckerberg is fine as she is a public figure both on the internet and on facebook itself. priscilla chan is NOT as she is not a public figure.

if you're in doubt, please message the mod or leave a comment in the discussion post.

♥ post requests and responses in the comments to this post.
♥ be respectful.
♥ both a pairing/character AND a prompt/kink must be posted.
♥ one pairing/prompt per comment please.
♥ you are encouraged to try and write a prompt for every request you make.
♥ we are slash, femslash, het, three-and-moresomes etc. friendly. (we are even incest friendly what with some of our characters being twins and all...)
♥ no pairing bashing, OK? no need to wank over ships.
♥ long and short fics welcome. multiple responses encouraged!
♥ please try to refrain from saying 'seconded!' as much as possible.
♥ on RPF: Please disclaim that it is RPF, a work of fiction and in no way related to the actual actors/persons/etc. (i wouldn't even try and discourage RPF from this meme ;))


♥ alphabetize pairings/threesomes/moresomes. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark/Sean etc.)
♥ put [RPF] before RPF prompts. (e.g. [RPF] Andrew/Jesse)
♥ for crossover prompts: "[Crossover], The Social Network Character(s)/Other Character(s), [Fandom]" (e.g. [Crossover], Eduardo/Columbus, [Zombieland])
♥ no "!" in pairings, only in descriptions. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark, FacebookCreator!Eduardo, CFO!Mark)
♥ anyone, everyone, no one? Use "Other." (e.g. Sean/Other)
♥ Please do not repost prompts from earlier rounds
♥ put [GEN] before GEN prompts.


♥ please don't embed. link to images/videos.
♥ no locked material. this includes communities, even if membership is open.
♥ fills can be posted anonymously or not.
♥ fills can be anything: fic, art, vid, fanmix, podfic, etc.
♥ all prompts are open to fills at all times, even if they have been filled in the past or are being currently filled by someone else. multiple fills are positively encouraged; if something appeals to you then do not be put off creating a new fill by the existence of a prior one.
NEW: ♥ PLEASE comment with the first of your fill to the PROMPT and then all future updates as a comment to the FIRST PART of the fill. this makes it easier for both the WIP spreadhseet and for archiving stuff on delicious. it also helps people who are trying to catch up on updates and don't have to look through every fill on the prompt (should it have more than one). thank you.

Hi, right now everyone is working on some changes so hold on new things are coming. In an effort to kick this place back into action, we're doing round 9. In a few days, we'll be setting up a fills post that hopefully will work directly for archiving and an overflow post. Also we'll be doing a friending meme at tsn_km_gather so be looking out for that. I know some of the other mods have plans of their own which will be coming soon.

If you have any questions or ideas that I can help you with, feel free to PM me. I'll be around.



have fun!

THERE WILL BE UNMARKED SPOILERS. enter at your own risk! :D


i know you guys are enjoying this meme and i appreciate that but please can you put the SUBJECT HEADER on your prompt. you would REALLY be helping me out if you could do that. it just saves time for me when i'm trying to tag everything in delicious.



AND PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT repost prompts from parts three, four, five, six, seven, or eight. the delicious is around for people to find prompts they may not have already seen. We know there's been some issues but we're working on it with pinboard. No duplicates from this round either. THANK YOU.

When Gabe Saporta and Eduardo Saverin first met (8/?)

After they finished eating, Gabe ordered them more beers and they talked. Gabe was interested in their school lives and kept asking about what it was like to be at Harvard, thee Harvard. They, of course, wanted to know all about Gabe’s life touring and being part of a successful (Mark kept his poker face when Dustin said this) band.

A couple hours passed and Gabe moved his chair over to the head of the table so he was sitting closer to Eduardo, their hands connected under the table. Dustin sighed dreamily and Mark drank his beer faster before waving the waitress down for another.

Chris stood up unsteadily and picked up his jacket from hanging on the back of the chair, announcing, “I should probably go. Some of us have 8 AM classes that we actually show up to.”

He nudged Mark’s shoulder at the last statement, smiling, before putting the jacket on.

Gabe stood up, too. “Hey, want us to walk you back?”

“Nah. It’s seriously, like,” he pointed out in a random direction, “like, right there. I’ll be fine, but thanks.”

Gabe sat back down, Eduardo grinning at him like he was some terrific person for offering to walk someone home and making Mark want to just throw a beer in Gabe’s face.

“Hey, Mark.”

Mark shifted his eyes from Eduardo to Gabe, who was looking at him and leaning against the table a little.

“You’re awfully quiet.”

Mark grabbed his glass, unsure of what else to do with his hands. “I’m always quiet.”

“You weren’t yesterday when you expressed your opinions.”

Mark rose an eyebrow, realizing that Gabe was maybe calling him out or something. Over dinner, he was on his best behavior and listened when Gabe told stupid stories about living on a bus and recording in a studio. He didn’t say out loud the snide commentary he was thinking with each word Gabe said. He smiled, fake, when everyone laughed and put in side remarks when Chris, Dustin, or Eduardo told a story.

He thought he deserved a sucker or sticker for how well he contained himself.

“Well, I guess I have no opinions today,” he countered, raising the glass to his lips and looking around the restaurant as he drank.

Dustin said to Gabe, “Mark’s a coder. He’s in the process of making a social website, kind of like MySpace.”

“It’s nothing like MySpace,” Mark defended as he wrinkled his nose. “MySpace is cluttered and stupid.”

“I said kind of to put it in perspective for Gabe.”

“It’s nothing like MySpace,” he reiterated, Eduardo and Gabe sharing a look.

Mark remembers when he and Eduardo used to share looks.

Gabe said, “So, you make websites.”

“In my free time.”

Eduardo added, “And by free time, he means that he’ll skip sleep for up to three days for extra hours to work on it and sometimes even miss class.”

“Only the stupid classes, like philosophy and English. They’re so inadequate.”

Gabe took a drink and nodded along. “Why do you make them?”

“Why do I what?”

“Make them. Why?”

Mark glanced at Eduardo, who rubbed his lips together nervously, before looking at Dustin, who was tipsy and leaning back in his chair a little but watching Mark closely. He had never been asked that question before but it was mostly because his friends already knew the answer.

“It’s.” Mark inhaled slowly and cleared his throat, taking another drink. “It’s, uh. You’re a musician.”

As he said this, he wanted to punch himself for one, calling Gabe such a thing and two, remembering the stupid, stupid term of “dance enforcer.”

“You’re a musician and…you express yourself through music. You understand how to make a song to get a message across. I express myself through, you know…coding.”

Eduardo smiled proudly at Mark’s explanation. “He’s very good at it, too. I don’t approve of some of the habits he’s formed and some of the sacrifices he’s made to develop this one, but it’s his and if he thinks it’s worth it, so be it.”
