[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.

Any/Any, Terra Nova Crossover/AU

Eduardo Saverin has just left behind the only world he's ever known, the world of Brazil's elite, living in the domes, with whatever luxuries the dying world could afford. And now he's in Terra Nova. (idk how, lottery? Recruitment? Trying to prove something to his dad?)

Dustin's the frontier kid who's pretty much grown up on Terra Nova, and doesn't really remember 2149, and who knows the area and dinos like the back of his hand. Mark's his surly best friend who came over at 13 or 14, and who's got a talent with computers and tech like no one's seen in colony for years, and even more baffling to Eduardo, the guy's got three sisters somehow. Chris is their charming, studious friend who briefly went to Harvard with Eduardo (or something).

idk, I just want city kid Eduardo coming out to Terra Nova and meeting mischievous, Terra Nova raised Dustin, slightly mysterious and socially awkward tech genius Mark (who's really kind of cute, in a persistently kind of grimy way, if you're, you know, into that. Not that Eduardo is or anything), and smart, smooth Chris. And dinosaurs and time travel.

Mini-Fill (1/2)

Eduardo's mother cries, when he leaves. He's going first, because there's only so many spots in the lottery anyone can game, even with money like his father's.

He's going to make it, he promises. He's going to be just fine until they all meet again, on the other side. (He doesn't say that he has a hard time imagining his serious business man father, his elegant, polished mother eking out a living in the untamed world of Terra Nova. He doesn't even say he can't see himself there. His father has a plan, whatever it is, and this is Eduardo's role.)


Eduardo reaches the other side and immediately starts gasping. The air's different here, soft and wet and utterly unlike the recycle air he's always known.

"Careful," a medic says, "careful now. We got you."


The dinosaur is enormous. And outside the gate and eating leaves, but Eduardo's heart pounds anyway. It is the largest living thing he has ever seen.

"Nothing like your first," a cheerful voice says behind him.

Eduardo turns around, shaking just a little, to see a grinning redheaded boy. "What?"

"Your first dinosaur," the guy says, tossing Eduardo some kind of fruit. He nods toward the brontosaurus. "I was thirteen."

"So you've been here a while," Eduardo concludes, turning the fruit over in his hands.

"Uh-huh," the guy agrees, "third pilgrimage. We didn't have that nice portal yet. Ended up in a lake when we came over. It was quite the start." He grins and shrugs. "I'm Dustin."

"Eduardo Saverin. It's a pleasure to meet you," Eduardo says, shaking Dustin's slightly fruit juice sticky hand.

"Wow, you have some real fancy manners," Dustin grins. "Chris'll like you. C'mon, I'll introduce you."


Chris, it turns out, is serious-looking blond boy doing paperwork in the compound.

"You're new," he says, spotting Eduardo. "Welcome to Terra Nova. I see you've already fallen into Dustin's clutches."

Dustin makes an offended face at Chris and Eduardo manages a small smile and says, "So it would appear."

"C'mon, Chris, let's show him around. The filing can wait, right? Taylor loves you anyway."

"Lieutenant Washington will care."

"Yeah, but you're not a soldier. C'mon, there's a newbie here!"

Chris rolls his eyes, but gets up anyway. He claps Eduardo on the shoulders, and says dryly, "As you can tell, Dustin's the bad influence around here."

Mini-Fill (2/2)


"So where's Mark, anyway?" Dustin asks, practically bouncing along among the stalls of strange items Eduardo can barely identify. "Wash ask him to help set up for Orientation again?"

"Didn't she ask you?" Chris says pointedly.

Dustin shrugs and grins and Chris shakes his head.

"He's down in the lab, checking out the new tech that came through," Chris says.

"Right, of course," Dustin says, lighting up. "Oh, man. I can't wait to see what they brought over." He turns to Eduardo and explains, "Our friend Mark and I, we've been waiting for new tech for months. Mark has this idea about integrating the personal computing systems of - anyway, the point is, we can barely do anything with what we've got now, and half of it was scavenged anyway. Mark's always saying if we were back in the future, we'd be able to get the stuff we need in a day, but I figure it's better to be able to breathe, right?"

"Um," Eduardo says. He hasn't even understood a fraction of that.

"They're freaks," Chris says affectionately. "Both of them."

And then at that moment another guy comes marching over to them, curly hair disarrayed and severe annoyance painted across his face.

"Speak of the devil!" Dustin crows. "What've we got?"

"Nothing," the guy says. "They won't even let us touch any of it until it all gets inventoried. And then Malcolm wants me to promise not to 'mess around' with anything, as if half of his lab wouldn't be broken down by now if it weren't for my adjustments."

Dustin makes a tragic sound and Chris says, "Well, you know him. He's always like this. He'll let up in a couple of days. Anyway - "

And then the curly-haired guy turns abruptly to Eduardo. "You're new," he says, sharp-quick. "You have any tech you want to trade?"

"Mark!" Chris hisses. "You can't just accost people and assume - "

"He's practically wearing a suit, Chris," the guy who is apparently Mark says. "He's definitely got tech with him."

Eduardo clears his throat, and says, "Well, you'd have to have something I wanted or needed more. Or some serious money."

Mark raises his eyebrows.

"That is how an economy works," Eduardo says.

Mark stares, while Chris and Dustin share amused grins.

"You know, you might just make it here," Mark finally says. "If you start wearing something more practical."

And that, more or less, how Eduardo meets his best friends.


I might write more some time, if I have time and/or anyone is interested. We'll see!

Re: Mini-Fill (2/2)

Yes! Please write some more, this is great :)

Re: Mini-Fill (2/2)

yay! Thanks for the encouragement! I'm glad someone out there is enjoying this!

Re: Mini-Fill (2/2)

More, absolutely. :DDD

Re: Mini-Fill (2/2)

Awww, you're the sweetest and the best ever. You're such an awesome reviewer and always so encouraging. Thanks for reading.

Re: Mini-Fill (2/2)

Thank you, lol, though my review really doesn't merit that. ;)

I should say that this was phenomenal, because it was. I really love frustrated Mark and excited Dustin and practical Eduardo and logical Chris. Always the best things. Also, that Mark was immediately intrigued by Eduardo. I love that. :D

And you're welcome. Off to read more now! I'm excited that there is more!

Re: Mini-Fill (2/2)

this is already 100x better than the actual terra nova. MOAR

A Little More

Aaah. I should be studying for my last final! Also, a lot of this is just my headcanon for Terra Nova and not actually from the show. And I like doing world building. Terra Nova has yet to tell us much about what happened in the future specifically, so I made up some things of my own.


"So this is where you all live?" Eduardo asks, walking around the slightly rundown housing unit.

"Yeah, us and Billy," Dustin says, plopping down at the dining table.

"Wherever he is," Chris says wryly.

"You need four people for a housing unit, usually. Unless you're married," Mark explains, tapping something out on his plex. "They just started the single housing. We don't get a lot of solos."

"Solos?" Eduardo mimics. He feels ridiculous, repeating after them so often, but the three look so comfortable, worn in here, tossing around a lingo Eduardo needs translated, connotations and all.

Dustin shrugs and Chris launches into what is clearly a speech he's thought out before, saying, "Terra Nova's really old school, in a lot of ways. Family-centric, which is fine and all, but it's very - "

"Hurry up and settle down," Mark and Dustin fill in, like they've heard it before.

"Yeees," Chris agrees, with a purse of his lips.

"What Chris wants to say is that Taylor's a fan of enforcing heteronormative, out-dated shit and is also kind of a dictator," Mark says, not even looking up.

"Mark," Chris hisses. Dustin says it mournfully, recriminatory.

Eduardo swallows. He longs for home.

"But," Mark continues, "I guess the dictator part wouldn't be new for you anyway."

"Excuse me?" Eduardo asks, coolly. He wants out, now. He'd trade even for his largely lonely, awkward days at Harvard.

"Please ignore Mark, he's just - " Chris says hurriedly.

"I'm not wrong. He said he's from the Brazilian Imperial Provinces," Mark says, but he's looking sideways, fidgeting.

"We just call them the United Provinces back home," Eduardo shrugs. There's something little-boyish, uncomfortable in his own skin, maybe guilty about Mark now. "I'm from Rio-Sao Paulo, the Sao Palo side. We weren't on the side of the Resistance, but - "

Chris hums sympathetically.

"If Taylor's a dictator, he's benevolent, at least," Dustin murmurs. "He looks out for us." Eduardo wonders how much Dustin even knows about what happened, back in the Provinces. The rebellion had been put down right as Dustin must have left.

"More or less," Mark agrees quietly.

"I got out though," Eduardo feels the need to clarify. He hasn't been a victim. He can't claim their pity and he doesn't want it. "Got into Harvard and got naturalized, so I could come and go. Havard's got connections."

"I almost went to Harvard," Chris says, voice and eyes a little distant.

"But then you got dinos instead!" Dustin says, with a slightly forced grin.

Mark shares a look with Dustin and smiles faintly. It's practically a transformation.


A few days later, Mark walks to Eduardo as he's leaving Orientation. He's fidgeting.

"Mark," Eduardo acknowledges, not entirely sure he wants to talk to Dustin's prickly friend at the moment. He is tired and has been learning about spotting cardinal directions off moss, of all things.

"Listen," Mark says, "what I said - "

Eduardo shrugs. "It's fine."

"No," Mark shakes his head. "It wasn't. If I know it wasn't then it really wasn't. So. I shouldn't have said that, about the Provinces and Taylor and all that. You got out."

It's not quite an apology like any Eduardo's ever received before, but Eduardo's on the frontier. He takes a chance.

Eduardo nods, and then says, "Why don't you show me around some more? I've been hearing you guys know this whole place as well as the soldiers."

"Because we're always scavenging things," Mark finishes for him, with a roll of his eyes.

"They've been saying that, too," Eduardo agrees, and grins.

"Alright," Mark agrees. He tilts his head and his eyes spark with a challenge or amusement, or both maybe. "Let's go."

Re: A Little More

I'm really enjoying this!

Re: A Little More

Mark realizing he said something offensive, but actually going to apologize about it? o : :3

Re: A Little More

THE APOLOGY. I feel like that should be noted.

And Mark and Dustin being like "yay dinos" to each other while Chris is like "woe, Harvard" and Eduardo's like "this is all very new and confusing". The transformation of his face.

And Chris's parroting and Mark's clarification. Laughing my fucking ass off, seriously. Blunt Mark is the best Mark.


I love the last line. I love how much Eduardo notes about Mark. I looooove this.

Ugh, if you've got more, I WILL TAKE MORE. ♥
