[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...

GENERAL RULES;

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.

♥ 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.

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.

Kitty

Mark/Eduardo, enraged Mark after the contract

I suddenly feel the need to read a fic in which Mark didn't know about what would happen if Eduardo signed the damn contract (or did he even know about the contract in the first place?).
Afterward, he finds out and goes bat shit crazy and takes revenge against Sean (and Thiel?). Then he reinstates Eduardo in the company and suddenly the four of them are the only persons he trust again and they're closer friends than ever (or more, in Eduardo's case ;p).

But yeah, the important part? Don't fuck with Mark, or he'll fuck back.
(and Sean doesn't need to be really evil, it could simply be that he thought it was better for Facebook, but he totally under-estimated Mark's attachment to the others.)

Mark didn't look dangerous.

Hanging around with Dustin, Chris and Eduardo had only reinforced that position. He was aware that most people dismissed him entirely from their through processes once they realised he was no threat - unless it was to their intelligence. He was more then willing to let them think that; to allow them the opportunity to believe that he was passive.

Contrary to that belief, Mark could be dangerous. It didn't matter that he wasn't a violent persn. Mark's danger worked in a different way. Ways that allowed him to construct a website that would demoralise half of the Harvard campus. Ways that allowed him to stare down Sean Parker and think, I'm going to destroy you.

The contract that lay on the table between them was proof enough that Mark had reason to be angry. Narrowing his eyes at the script that littered the pages, Mark pushed the paper away with his fingers. He kept his face impassive as he looked at Sean's face. "What is this?"

"It's to protect the company," Sean said, eyes searching Mark's face wildly. He had miscalculated on a massive scale. "Facebook is everything, Mark, and Eduardo-"

"Eduardo is a co-founder," Mark snapped, his tone steel. "Don't forget that."

Sean leant forward in his chair, arms sliding over the table. "Look, Mark, Facebook is just beginning to be something."

Mark flicked his eyes to the contract. "It still will be."

"So you're going to get him to sign it?"

"No." Mark didn't think he had said anything over the past few months to give Sean the impression that Eduardo was negotiable but apparently that was what Sean was trying to imply. "Has he signed this?"

"Last time he was here," Sean said, rubbing at his eyebrow.

Mark felt his stomach drop and he turned in the chair, looking out over the office. He could see Dustin peering over the top of his computer, completely obvious despite the fact that he was supposed to be working. It was that more than anything that made Mark turn back to Sean. "Get out."

"Mark=-"

"I can't look at you right now, Sean. We'll talk later. I need you to get out."

Sean knew better than to fight but he made a point of being as noisy as possible as he gathered his things and left. Mark sat staring at the contract for a long, long time.

When he finally left the room half an hour later, he brushed straight past Dustin and over to his desk. He couldn't fault Dustin for leaning against the desk and asking, "So?"

He could fault Dustin for interrupting his thought process.

"Eduardo signed the contract."

Dustin looked confused. "We all did."

"It dilutes his shares," Mark snapped, not bothering to sugar coat it. Dustin was an idiot but he wasn't stupid. "Every time somebody invests into Facebook and gets shares, Eduardo loses some of his."

"I know what dilutes means." Dustin sounded absent. All too soon his face cleared and he looked angry. "Did Sean do this?"

Mark nodded tightly but he couldn't really think about that right now. He would deal with Sean later - despite the fact that Mark knew he believed he was helping Facebook. Right now Mark needed to tell Eduardo and get the decision overturned. He didn't even know how to go about that. So much for CEO. "Shit."

There was nothing Dustin could say. He brought his chair over anyway and leaned on Mark's desk. "Chris -"

Snorting, Mark sat back in his chair. "I need to call Eduardo."

"Call Chris," Dustin said, pushing Mark's phone across the desk. "He'll know what to do."

"Eduardo-"

"Chris will know what to say, okay? Mark, Eduardo is going to think you did this."

Didn't Mark know it. "I didn't."

Dustin sighed. "I know that, I do."

"I didn't do this." Mark rarely repeated himself but this was Eduardo and he couldn't know that Mark would do that. He couldn't think that Mark would do that. "I'm going to destroy him."

"Mark-"

"Sean," Mark snapped. "This isn't what you do. Eduardo wasn't a threat."

"From Sean's point of view," Dustin said, trailing off at the look on Mark's face. "Call Chris."

Mark nodded tightly. "Fine."

Re: protect a soul made bloody [1b/?]

Yaaaaaay! Oh, this fandom needs more fic like this, where Mark is all protective about Eduardo XD

Re: protect a soul made bloody [1b/?]

FANNING MYSELF

OP has an announcement to make:

I think I'm in love with you, because (over)protective!Mark? ♥.♥
(also, Dustin forcing him to call Chris first, I don't know why, but it makes me go all 'awwwww'. Maybe because it'll mean that the three of them are trying to 'save' Eduardo ;) )

Re: protect a soul made bloody [1b/?]

"I'm going to destroy him."

*happy noises* You are forgiven for not having turned anyone into an animal yet. This is delightful! (And I'm a horrible person, I shouldn't find pleasure in other people's pain, even if it's fictional. This is why I usually stay anon here. But I figured after whining on tumblr yesterday that I couldn't read it I should now leave proof that I did come back for it.)

Re: protect a soul made bloody [1b/?]

YES! *fist pumps the air*

Re: protect a soul made bloody [1b/?]

aksjdhaskdgakhsjdhaskjlh omg this is brilliant! I can't wait for more.

Mark was frustrated. Three calls later and Chris still hadn’t replied. He’d left voicemails each time and he was sure the edge that had been his voice was now more than evident. Dustin was peering through the window at regular intervals and all Mark could think about was Eduardo - who would be coming back for the million members party and would have the new contract revealed to him and he would think-

Snapping, Mark dialled Chris’s number once more. This time he wasn’t going to be so nice. Thankfully, the phone ran three times and then Chris answered with a brusque, “Yes, Mark?”

“I called you three times.”

“Yes, I know,” Chris said, sounding exasperated. Mark didn’t know what he had to feel frustrated about. “I was in class. You remember those?”

That stung a little. “I know you’re busy but this is important.”

Chris snorted. “Isn’t it always? What’s the problem Mark?”

“Sean drafted a contract that Eduardo signed.”

“You didn’t look it over?” Chris said, distractedly. There was the sound of shuffling papers and Mark grabbed the edge of his desk, fingers digging into the wood. He needed Chris’s full attention because this was Eduardo.

“Chris, Eduardo’s shares are going to be diluted.”

“Jesus Christ,” Chris snapped. “What the hell, Mark?”

Mark pressed the palm of his hand to his eyes. He could feel a headache blossoming and he had too much work to let it become a fully fledged migraine. “I didn’t- Eduardo’s going to think it was me.”

There was silence on the end of the phone but Mark wasn’t stupid; he’d known Chris long enough to realise he was thinking. Mark didn’t know why he’d told Chris that. He didn’t need reassurance, he wasn’t like that but Chris had ways of making it seem like Mark could fix things.

“I didn’t, Chris. Eduardo isn’t doing - he’s CFO and I need him.” It wrenched to say it out loud to someone who wasn’t Eduardo - it had even hurt then - but this felt different. Eduardo was going to lose his part of Facebook - think that Mark didn’t want him involved but that wasn’t true.

“I know,” Chris said softly. “I believe you.”

Mark swallowed. “And Wardo?”

Chris sighed. “I honestly don’t know, Mark. You’re the only person I know who can break him.”

Closing his eyes, Mark swivelled his chair so that he didn’t have to look out of the window at the Facebook office. It just looked too much; as though it was about to become something less than it was just because Eduardo might hate him.

“I can talk to him.”

“No,” Mark said, hot on the heels of Chris’s suggestion. “I need to-”

“Yeah,” Chris breathes. “Okay look, here’s what you’re going to do.”

Mark straightened because this he could do; he could listen to Chris and then he could figure out what he was going to say to Eduardo.

“Contact legal and arrange an appointment, okay? I will fly out to be there.”

“Chris-”

“This is Eduardo, Mark,” Chris said, as if it were a no brainer. “I’ll be there. Once that’s arranged, you need to email me the details and go home. You will not contact Sean at all until I get there, okay?”

Mark didn’t know if he could do that but he nodded anyway and then said, “Yes.”

There was a pause, the sound of a door closing. “Mark, I need you to email me what you want to say to Eduardo first, okay?”

“I can’t script it out, Chris. This isn’t something I did because I said something stupid. This is something somebody else did in my name.”

“That’s what bothers you.”

Mark closed his eyes and sank down in the chair. No, no that wasn’t what bothered him the most. He felt some of the tension bleed out of his shoulders because this was Chris and if anyone could help him put this right - well, there were only three people Mark trusted in the world to do that and Chris was one of them. “No. It bothers me that someone did this to Eduardo. Chris, Eduardo isn’t just someone that can get tossed out of this company like he means something. I would never - I would never do this to Eduardo.”

“Mark-”

“He’s my best friend,” Mark said, tripping over himself to get the words out before he lost his nerve. “I trust him more than - he knew what Facebook was about and he’s annoyed me and he hasn’t been here but I would never toss him out without warning him and I-”

protect a soul made bloody [2b/?]

“Mark,” Chris said again, firmer this time. “I know, okay? I know you and I know you would never hurt Eduardo like that.”

Mark let out a slow breath.

“Sean was threatened by Eduardo, Mark, but that didn’t mean he did this maliciously. He’s almost as in to Facebook as you are.”

“Yeah,” Mark said, because that was true. “But this company was built on $19,000 that came from Eduardo. Without Eduardo there wouldn’t be anything for Sean to get into.”

This time, when Chris answered him, Mark could hear the smile in his tone. “I think that’s what you should tell Eduardo. Just - think about what you’re saying, okay? Eduardo is going to care about this and he will think you did it but you can convince him otherwise. Just tell him what you just told me.”

Mark nodded and then thanked Chris out loud before ending the call. How had he and Eduardo got to the point where one would believe it was so easy to betray the other? Mark never thought that he and Eduardo would be anything other than a solid pair; best friends. Even if Mark never said it aloud, even if he always took it as a given that Eduardo knew, it suddenly seemed as if he should have done so.

Sooner, rather than later. Then Mark could focus on dealing with Sean and him having the audacity that he would think Mark would ever want Facebook to be a company that didn’t have Eduardo in it.

Re: protect a soul made bloody [2b/?]

♥ Oh yes, Go Mark! (and go Chris! ;p )

I can't wait to read about Mark explaining the thing to Eduardo. This thing has a potential for angst like whoa! Also, Sean is so, so dead ^^;;;

Thank you for writing this!
