[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])

♥ put [GEN] before GEN prompts.


♥ please don't embed. link to images/videos.

♥ 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.

Mark/Eduardo – vanishing (without a trace)


Post lawsuits, at some point, Eduardo disappears.

When can be arranged/up to the writer, but I would like it if it’s after an eventual, painful reconciliation, when Mark is beginning to show more confidence in their relationship (or pre-relationship).

(I saw fics were post lawsuit Eduardo get with Mark to later cheat on him/dump him, but there I don’t necessarily want Eduardo to disappear in order to make Mark suffer. It could be that, but mostly I just want him to be gone, without any explanations, or visible/clear reasons, and without any traces -plane ticket, no phone, no nothing.)

And life just go on, months become year(s), and there is no answer. I’d like it if someone, at some point, mentions that maybe, it would be less painful if he was dead because at least they would know, and not stay in that “forever waiting” obsessive state (can be Mark, or Mark can hear it & react badly).

(However, Eduardo disappear by his own will, he is alive somewhere -it’s not a death fic- but no one know where, no one ever know that he is alive at all. I would prefer if Eduardo’s disappearance was quite long, or even never resolved at all. If the reasons why he did it are given at some point, it's whatever writer wants: self esteem issues, fear or getting involved to much with Mark and suffer again, wanting to find himself, to run away from something, to be free, it could be anything, or they can be no reason given at all, I don’t care, the point is the disappearance, & the angst of the ones left-behind, not the answer on why…)

Anyway, sorry for the long prompt (& if it’s been prompt/done before).

Fill: Without a Trace 1a/? (Mark/Eduardo)

The terms of the settlement are very clear: Mark and Eduardo are not to discuss the depositions with any one, in any capacity. The terms Chris lays out when Mark goes back to the office will the ink from Gretchen's expensive pen is still drying on stark black and white sheets on the glass table top: Mark is not to initiate contact without Eduardo, in any capacity. If he does the former, the settlement states that he'll be subject to further suit, and that he'll lose even more money. If he does the latter, Chris says he'll leave.

"I mean it, Mark. Enough is enough. You lost, he won, and now it's time to move on."

Chris is sitting in one of the chairs across from Mark's desk. Mark doesn't think he ordered chairs for his office when he was picking out the furniture for it. He'd been very specific about the kind of couch he wanted - a soft fabric, a solid cushion along the bottom, both better for sleeping on, in a dark blue, so the inevitable stains wouldn't show as badly as they would on a lighter colour. But he doesn't remember saying anything about chairs, and now he's got six of them. Two face his desk, and the other four are around a small table. He could hold meetings in his office now.

Maybe the chairs were accidentally put in the wrong office. Chris, for example, is exactly the type of person who would actually use a table in his office, for meetings, for the occasional game of cards when they've actually got some down time. But the couch in Chris' office is a pale grey - apparently he's not worried about stains, which is just so typical - and Mark's chairs are covered in the same navy blue pattern as his couch. Chris, now that he thinks of it, has chairs covered in the soft grey material that matches his couch. It seems altogether likely that the chairs are indeed Mark's, and that he one day might have to hold meetings in his office. He sighs.

"You're not listening to me," Chris says. He's still sitting in the chair, but he's leaning forward now, his eyes steady on Mark. His voice is soft, quiet, and commands attention more effectively than a firing squad. Mark hadn't been listening, it was true. But Chris hadn't been using that voice before.

"No," he says. "I wasn't. But I am now."

"This is the last thing you want to hear today," Chris says, almost sympathetically. "I understand that - it's been a hell of a day. You lost a half a billion dollars, a chunk of your company, and your best friend today. Not one of those things is something that you can ever get back, no matter what you try to do."

Mark glares at him. "Believe it or not, I don't want any of those things back. Wardo deserves the money, and he deserves to be on the board."

"And you deserve a best friend who didn't sue you for both of those things," says Chris. Mark shrugs.

"Okay, let me put it this way: Wardo deserves a best friend who he didn't have to sue for a half-billion dollars and a place at the table he built. Don't you agree, Mark?"

He does. Eduardo deserves at least that, as much as it kills him to admit that.

"You're going to let him have it," Chris says. "Neither of you would listen to me before, but now that there's bodies on the ground and blood everywhere, you're damn well going to leave him alone."

Mark nods, ignoring the little bubble of fear rising in his throat.

"I know about the GPS tracker in his phone," Chris said. "I know about the tracker oh his laptop. I know about the code in Facebook that lets you track Eduardo's location down the side of the bed he's sleeping on. And I know about Anders."

Shit. He only used Anders when Eduardo was in town, because men as rich as Eduardo need an extra layer of protection. If Anders happened to report back to Mark daily, that was just because he wanted to make sure that Eduardo wasn't being duped by some scam artist. Again floated through his head and he wined. But, yes. Again.

Re: Fill: Without a Trace 1b/? (Mark/Eduardo)

So he looks at Chris, meets his stern eyes full-on. "State your terms," he says.

"Unhook, unplug, detach, recode, I don't care. Whatever you have to do to let go of all the time you spend thinking about him, do it. But, after today, no more spying, Mark. He's earned that much."

"Yes," says Mark. He agrees, he does. He's just also trying to figure out how Chris knows about Anders. Too much tequila one night, maybe. But probably not. Mark hasn't been drunk in months, sadly, and he's only has Anders on the payroll for a few weeks.

He'd ask Chris, but Chris is giving him the sad glare again. Mark hates that look. "Leave him alone, Mark. Don't stalk him - protect him, whatever you want to call it. No more writing on his wall, no more plots to get him back into the fold. No more contact outside of shareholders meetings."

Mark nods. "Or else you'll leave."

"Yes," Chris says, and he looks so tired. "If you make contact with Eduardo again outside of his capacity as a shareholder, in any way differently than you might contact another shareholder - none of whom you have ever personally contacted, I would like to add, I'll leave. I'm not doing this again, Mark. I'm not watching either of you, or Dustin, go through it again. Enough."

Mark can afford to lose more money. He doesn't want to give up more shares, but he would. But he can't lose Chris: he has so little else left, now. "All right," he says, and nods at Chris.

Chris looks relieved, and completely fucking drained. He nods back, stands up, and leaves Mark's office.

All right. No more Eduardo. He'd promised.


Re: Fill: Without a Trace 1b/? (Mark/Eduardo)

Great start, anon! I like the dualism - Mark deserving a best friend who didn#t sue him, and Eduardo deserving one who didn't force him to sue for what was his due. And I think Mark's inability to let go is very in character. Mark does get somewhat obsessed, is possessive, and I think that for him, now that the suit is done with, the fight really is settled and they could move on and be friends again, if only he managed to lure Wardo back in.

Re: Fill: Without a Trace 1b/? (Mark/Eduardo)

anlskdfnlskdgn. you creeping creeper. sticking GPS trackers in Wardo's tech. o :

aww, chris. must be exhausting looking after everyone.

iinnteresting beginning, anon, can't wait for more :DD

Re: Fill: Without a Trace 1b/? (Mark/Eduardo)
