[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.

Mark/Eduardo, Something with Gawker/NBC

I don't even care what. IT HAS TO BE DONE

FILL: (This is Not Real) Life is Stranger Than Fiction 1/?

Warning: Meta in fic as you would expect from the prompt. Random fact - personally I prefer Jesse!Mark and Andrew!Eduardo but please feel free to let your imagination take over, stomp on the pieces of the fourth wall in a metatastic prompt (thanks OP <3) and break the internet gg I love this fandom sfm.

(This is Not Real) Life is Stranger Than Fiction

“Holy shit boss, you have to look at this,” intern-of-the-fic-with-a-name-of-no-significance-to-fandom says to Mark.

“What,” Mark says distractedly. He’s not coding because well he’s CEO bitch now - that’s what he has interns for.

“You’re on Gawker!”

Mark makes a humming noise because yes he remembers that article about him and Sean and its really old news. He sighs, kids and fame. It’s really not what it’s cocked up to be.

“You’re on Gawker!” the guys says again. “With Wardo!”

The use of the nickname makes Mark’s head snap up. “What?” Mark says, brows knitting together in confusion. “Show me.”

“Here!” the intern says happily. An iPad with a purple croc-leather cover is passed to him.

Mark reads.

“And?” he says blankly.

“You’re also on NBC.” The article has a star next to it, having been added to the guy’s favorites.

Mark reads that too. “It’s basically the same article,” he says with a shrug.

If the intern seems a little disappointed at Mark’s lack of reaction, he doesn’t say anything. He accepts his iPad back.

“Thank you for showing me,” Mark says kindly, smiling the smile that his PR advisers had him practice, hoping to stall the awkward turtle moment from turning into an awkward aquarium.

“Um, sure,” the guy replies looking like he’s forgotten how big an iPad is as he holds it at his hip.

Mark makes to go back to work because that is what Facebook is. A company he founded, sure, but it is a lot of hard work too.

“How does it feel?” the guy blurts out.

When Mark turns to look at him, he looks like he regrets the question instantly.

“Not that you have to answer-”

“Strange,” Mark says hesitantly. Then with a little knowing smile, “Like having a movie made about you at nineteen.”


After going into a coding spiral because Google suggested it, Mark calls Chris. Not because fandom suggested it but because Chris is totally the person to go to for things like this.

“Chris,” Mark starts.

“You’re on Gawker,” Chris jumps in.

Mark doesn’t even ask how because Chris is a good friend and he told him once that he still tracks him. It’s good to know that friends have your back.

“Yeah,” Mark says, suppressing a sigh. He settles for putting his face into his palm. “You know how I said I wished no one had made a movie of about me while I’m still alive?”

“And now you want to include people writing stories about you having sex with Eduardo while you’re still alive?” Chris says. Mark can hear the grin in his voice.

“Pretty much.” Mark is relieved because it’s nice for someone to understand what he’s going through.

“You might also want to include people writing stories about you having sex with me. And Dustin. And Eduardo,” adds Chris.

“Ugh.” And then after a beat, “Really?”

“Or you and the Winklevii at the same time.”

“Why am I gay?” Mark asks. “Not that there is anything wrong with that,” he amends quickly. “I just don’t know where people got that idea from.”

“The part in the movie where you orgasm next to your supposed best friend.”

“Hey, it’s Oscar-nominated for Best Picture,” Mark says. “It must be good.”

FILL: (This is Not Real) Life is Stranger Than Fiction 2/?

“How are you feeling?”

“I’m not panicking,” Mark starts. “But it’s really weird and awkward. It’s funny? I can’t believe that this is coming out in the news when they should be talking about the IPO. I sort of wish they would focus on that but it could be worse?” He’d rather not go over the lawsuits again. Or FaceMash. Or blogging when drunk. Movies make a big deal about the most unimportant things really.

Chris makes an encouraging noise.

“I just don’t get why people are so interested. It didn’t happen like that. You know that. We all know that. Except then this movie came out and it changed things, you know? I just- it’s really-” Mark stops, wracking his brain for the right word. “…confusing.” He goes on, “It’s like everyone remembers this as what happened and people are always referring to it now like this is the official story of what went down.”

The Social Network changed the collective memory of the public,” Chris comments almost absently. “Comparisons between Sorkin’s version of events versus Mezrich’s version of events versus Kirkpatrick’s version of events creates multiple universes in which writers can exploit. Truth becomes lost in the construction of the ‘real’.”

“But the truth matters,” Mark insists because he knows. He needs a divide between the real and fictional or it would drive him crazy.

“It does,” Chris agrees easily. “There are all sorts of crazy things on the internet.”

They laugh and they talk about other things because there’s a presidential campaign coming up and the IPO and gay marriages to advocate for.


“It’s really weird. I know it’s not real but I can’t stop thinking about it,” Mark says when he and Dustin get together for a videogame marathon. There’s no point in being the youngest self-made billionaires in the world if you don’t actually use the time to game. (It’s actually really had to find the time when they’re flying all over the world but Dustin is very insistent and okay Mark actually likes that Dustin will give him a run for his money quite literally.)

“Ooh stop right there, you’ve been incepted,” Dustin says as he shamelessly exploits the moment to execute a perfect headshot. “Better check your totem.”

“Ha. Ha.” Mark presses replay. “Just so you know, in that story in which y’know we’re in love? I’m on top.”

“What?” Dustin says, turning to look at Mark. “You- you actually read one?”

Mark’s grenade blows Dustin’s avatar up in a burst of pixels, leaving Mark with a smug smile. “Don’t act like you haven’t got some Social Network fic hidden in your bookmarks. I know you don’t just read Firefly and Buffy. Anyway, you should totally know better than to ship Eduardo and I. You know that never happened.”

“Yet,” Dustin says deviously.


“You heard me. I know it never happened…yet. That’s what future!fic is for.”

Dustin savors the look of surprise on Mark’s face as he hits replay again. Everyone knows the internet is for porn. Rule 34, duh.

FILL: (This is Not Real) Life is Stranger Than Fiction 3/3


Mark is reclining at home watching Inception with Beast on his massive TV just because he can. He’s had a long string of meetings today and he just wants a break. He orders pizza (vegetarian) with a side of Vienetta ice-cream and has a beer a beer while he waits. Rule #32: Enjoy the little things.

When the doorbell chimes, he goes to the door in his jeans and t-shirt because he hasn’t bothered to change.

“Thanks,” he says, pulling out a fifty. Never let it be said he’s not generous towards the pizza industry okay?

“You gave me 600 million dollars and a five percent share of Facebook already,” a familiar voice says. “I’m guessing that fifty isn’t meant for me.”

“This is not real,” Mark says, blinking. “Wardo,” he says with a little smile. He’s never actually called him that. Not yet, a voice tells him. It sounds a lot like Dustin. “You came out. To Palo Alto.”

Eduardo’s hair is just as gravity-defying as he remembers when it’s not restrained by super strong gel. Eduardo who is supposed to be working in Singapore. There are no faux shareholder meetings being held for the purpose of reconciliation that he knows of. Mark shakes his head. He’s getting caught up in TSN fandom. It’s messing with his head.

“Yeah,” Eduardo says beaming, his eyes lighting up warmly. “I’m here now,” he says with a sheepish look.

“Come in,” Mark says, looking around because he really doesn’t want to be assaulted by hidden cameras. Or worse, finding himself being Punk’d. It’s a scene right out of a fic. His real life right now is literally stranger than fiction. Still, he’s curious and he has no ill feelings towards Eduardo. Really. This is Real Life. His life isn’t so dramatic. He holds his door open so Eduardo can come through and he’s about to close it when he realizes there’s a petite girl standing three feet away, effortlessly balancing a pizza and a cooler bag. Her nametag reads “Mary Sue” next to the Pizza Hut logo.

Mark hands her the fifty. “Keep the change, Mary Sue,” he says casually as he takes the items from her.

“Thank you,” she says politely although her eyes are wide and grateful.


Mary Sue: OMG
me: ?????
Like a pizza boy!AU or something
Mary Sue: You always say that :P
You write it

“Wardo. They’re going to write fic about this, you know,” Mark complains. Okay he didn’t see it coming, didn’t believe in the power of fanfic but he’s not complaining, not really. Not when it helped him realize he was in love with Eduardo all along.

“Why?” Eduardo asks, sounding genuinely confused.

“It doesn’t matter,” Mark says, his lips capturing Eduardo’s in a kiss.

Everything about this is hilarious and brilliant. I love the awkward turtle->awkward aquarium, the intern forgetting how big the iPad is, Mark's general lack of reaction to being on Gawker (and the smile he was told to use ahahaha) and then the pizza girl. *dies on the floor*
