[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.


Didn't Eduardo have a laptop bag/something with him when he arrived for the million member party? And it didn't look like he brought it out with him, so after he's been humiliated and thrown out he realizes that he forgot his hotel key card and his phone and his wallet etc etc back in the offices.

(idk he could wait for dustin to come down and make awkward angry conversation or he could wait and try to sneak back up after most people leave and getting into a really heated confrontation)

I just love the idea of E still really furious (with adrenalin and that horrible out of control, burning the back of your neck humiliation), pacing, awkward and wanting to escape.

Re: Eduardo/(Mark)

I've written something like this except it was for some prompt i've lost in which Eduardo witnesses a canon-divergent aftermath of Lawyer Up (i.e. Mark having a panic attack after Eduardo walks out). I could incorporate this prompt with it, if you want/wouldn't mind.

Re: Eduardo/(Mark)

i don't mind at all, that sounds great
go for it!

fill: would you really rush out for me now?

Same anon above. This was for a prompt that had Mark realising that he loves Eduardo right after lawyer up but as I said, I incorporated things. And this might end up being awful.

Warning for details of panic attacks.


He's angry. He is so fucking angry he can feel blood rushing through his veins, the beat of his own heart loud in his ears. He's shaking too. Violently. Tries to see through the veil that's blocking his sight. In his mind there is static. And his heartbeat. And the need to fuck things up.

He leans down the sink. He cannot stop shaking. He needs to calm down.

There's a click. The door is opening. Eduardo is about to step out the bathroom. About to tell Dustin that he can't stay in the same building with Mark. Can't even stay in the same zipcode with Mark. About to tell Dustin thanks for offering to get his laptop bag back and nothing else but —

"Mark. What the hell is wrong with you?"

That's Chris. And Mark is apparently in this room too. He wants to stalk out and hit things. Violently. Until they break.


"Christ, Mark." Eduardo peeks through the small opening. Thankful he didn't close the door all the way in. Chris is making soothing noises.

Because Mark clearly is the one to be soothed in this scenario, really. He only almost signed himself out of the company he helped build by the fucker he thought he was best friends with.

"Mark." It's a bark of sound Chris uses on them when he needs them to pay attention. Eduardo tries to slow his heart rate. Wants to hear everything.

He peeks out again. Chris has both hands on Mark's face, leaning down and looking at him in the eye. Mark is shaking. Gasping for breath. Eduardo hates that his heart starts beating wildly for a completely different reason.

"Mark. Breathe, come on, buddy." There's a choked noise. Mark's face is chalk-white. Too pale. "That's it, breathe with me. Slowly."

Eduardo feels stupid for not barging out and punching Mark in the face. Feels even more stupid wanting to know if Mark's alright.

"Good. What the fuck was that, Mark" Mark just pushes the heel of his palm against his eyes.

"What the fuck was that? Did you not talk to Wardo?" Chris pulls his hair a little. Mark is still trying to gulp some air. "What the fuck is wrong with you? How can you fucking do that?"

"Chr-" Chris winces at Mark's voice. Tries again. "Eduardo. I—fuck. I love Eduardo. I—"

"What? Mark, you're not making any sense."

It feels like a punch.

"I - Wardo. I love Wardo." There's a note of hysteria in his voice that Eduardo hasn't hears before. From the look of things, Chris hasn't either.

Mark is still shaking. He is also clawing at his face. Eduardo wants to go out and hold his hands away.

"Mark, what the fuck do you mean you love him? How do you even - Mark, if you love him you wouldn't have done that, you fucker."

Eduardo watches as Chris walks in circles. Mark is still trying to rake his face; he is still gasping for breath.

Dustin walks in, Eduardo's bag slung down his shoulder and Eduardo can tell that he was about to say something but notices what Mark is doing.

"Mark." His tone makes Chris stop and look back at Mark. Mark is shaking. He is still raking his face and even if his nails are bitten and almost non-existent, ten livid lines are appearing.

Eduardo heard of this from Mark's mom. Christ, Eduardo knows his mom. But he has never seen it. Didn't think it's possible. Mark and panic attacks.

Dustin pulls Mark's hands away from his face and pushes them on Mark's lap.

"Wa- Wardo." Eduardo tenses. Thinks he's been caught. Dustin looks like he's about to look for him but Mark "Fuck"

He sees him take a deep breath. And another. Squeezes his eyes shut. Sees him pinch his arm. Dustin yanks the hand away.

Dustin looks worried. "Mark, stop trying to-"

fill: would you really rush out for me now? 1/1

"I love Wardo. I didn't know I didn't know I said I need him he didn't come out I can't-" Mark's voice was getting more hoarse. Dustin kneels in front of him and holds the fingers that are digging into Mark's knees.

"Mark, you're scaring me. Come on, stop."

And Eduardo's heard enough. He opens the door and tries to look indifferent. Mark doesn't look like he is still in this room. Chris and Dustin are looking at him. Eduardo walks around.

"Mark," he says, holding his anger in check because he can feel it roaring. He looks down at Mark and meets his eyes. Eduardo feels a little cold. They are blank. Hazy. Unfocused.

"Eduardo!" Chris. But Eduardo can't deal with him right now. He doesn't want to deal with anything right now, much less Mark but he can't help himself. His attention is on Mark who is looking up at him like he can't recognise Eduardo. Like he doesn't know who Eduardo is and.

"Mark?" And much to Eduardo's dismay, no matter how hard he tries to set his voice into the kind of vehement pitch, his throat closes up and betrays him. He doesn't know what's going on but he finds himself kneeling down, distantly aware of Dustin stepping back and giving him space in front of Mark. "Mark." Because he doesn't know what else to say. There is a low hum of anger still churning in his gut but it is blanketed by worry. "Breathe, come on, Mark,"

He reaches up, not quite sure if he wants to touch but knowing that he needs to. He tilts Mark's face until he can force eye contact - until he can look at Mark's dilated pupils, wishing - knowing that he can do this. "Mark," his voice sounds different. Gentler, but with the type of edge he knows he still can't quite remove - not immediately. Not for a long while. "Look at me. Come on, Mark. Breathe."

It takes seconds. Or hours. Or years. Eduardo doesn't quite know how long he's been kneeling but Mark seems to calm down after a while but when he tries to pull away from Eduardo's touch on his jaw, Eduardo doesn't allow him.

"Eduardo," he says. Hoarse and trying but failing to remain unsympathetic.

"You love me," because the words have been echoing in his mind, however muted when he was trying to calm Mark down. And for some reason, in the spaces between the heartbeat that had been roaring in his ears as he's trying to calm Mark down, he calmed down himself. "You love me." A little bitter on the side but quiet nonetheless.

Mark suddenly tips forward, folding himself in half until his forehead is on Eduardo's shoulder. Eduardo can feel him nod against the skin of his neck.

There is a huff of breath behind Eduardo and he recognizes the huff as the one that Chris employs when he's particularly annoyed. "Fuck," he hears later because Eduardo is unwilling to move - afraid to jostle Mark who seems to lay half his weight onto Eduardo. "Fuck. You two — I don't even know."

They're not okay and Eduardo's still angry and Mark hasn't said sorry.

These are the things they need to pull through.

Maybe they would be alright, or maybe they won't.

But the three of them maneuver Mark up until he is vertical again and Eduardo notes the fact that Dustin seems more than a little used on how to best manipulate Mark until he is on his own two feet.

Mark's exhausted, Eduardo notes distantly. The kind of exhaustion that Eduardo only witnesses after a few days with no sleep and little to no food. He is pliant against their pull and Eduardo stretches his legs as they stumble their way out of the office into Dustin's car with Chris on the passenger seat and Mark's head lulling against Eduardo's shoulder in the back.

He doesn't know where they're going and he doesn't feel inclined to ask.

But they're going somewhere and it's still the four of them and Eduardo hopes that will be enough.


woohoo self indulgence

Re: fill: would you really rush out for me now? 1/1

Nice short fill! Vivid descriptions of emotions and conflicts. :)
