[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...

THE SOCIAL NETWORK KINK MEME


ASK THE MODS * FAQ * DISCUSSION * RESEARCH * FILL LIST * PART ONE * PART ONE (OVERFLOW) * PART TWO * PART TWO (OVERFLOW) * PART THREE * PART THREE (OVERFLOW) * PART FOUR * PART FIVE * PART SIX * PART SEVEN * PART EIGHT


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.
♥ 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 ;))
♥ WARN FOR COMMON TRIGGERS, PLEASE




FORMAT OF PROMPTS:

♥ alphabetize pairings/threesomes/moresomes. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark/Sean etc.)

♥ 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.

Kitty

"sex is not dating. if it were, wardo and i would be dating."

FILL: Epiphany (1/3)

"Sex is not dating. If it were, then Wardo and I would be dating."

The words are out of his mouth before he even has a chance to think about reining them in. Not that Mark's embarrassed by the fact he's been sleeping with his best friend, or even been keeping it a secret from his Kirkland suite mates (because with such close quarters, and thin walls, that would be impossible), but he's trying to make a point in the absurd conversation between Dustin and Chris about how casual sex between two consenting adults is a thing of the past because no matter what, at least one party will always end up being more involved, more emotionally invested in the relationship than the other.

"What?" Mark presses, watching as Dustin cackles away, rolling around on the floor from where he'd fallen off the couch, no matter how hard his friend tries to stop and say something in return. "What?"

All he receives in return from Chris is a sad, almost pitying gaze and a warm squeeze of his shoulder.

Granted, his friends do have a point, in that casual sex is a little less casual and a little more messy (and not in the spent, breathless, satisfying, dirty sheets kind of messy) now of days than it sounds, but it can be achieved if the parties involved have an understanding. If they are open and honest with one another, and even if one or the other isn't totally, completely honest, as long as they are at least honest with themselves in understanding what they want and what the other party involved is really looking for, then it can be, the casualness of sex can be achieved at a certain cost.

"Mark," Chris finally says, turning a bit on the couch to face him. "I know there is more to you than the surface you choose to show the world, than what you put out there to keep the world at a distance, but can you honestly say that."

"Say what? That sex is just sex, an animalistic desire that occasionally needs filled?"

Chris sighs deeply.

"No, I get what sex is, in general, and yeah, I get that sometimes… sometimes needs overshadow emotions, but do you really think… Wardo?"

Mark tilts his head to the side, eyes squinting a bit to better ascertain Chris's word's meaning.

"We have an understanding," Mark states, insists. "We are not girls."

Dustin's hyena antics, which had subsided a bit, pick up again. Mark throws him a glare before his attention is pulled back to Chris.

"Trust me, I know you and Eduardo are not girls. If you were, you both wouldn't be such idiots," Chris states, taking a deep breath and releasing it slowly. "Look, Mark, what I'm saying is… I mean I know… do you really think Wardo is the type to do the… you know… casual thing?"

"We have an…"

"Understanding, yeah, I heard you the first time, but is that what you really want?</i>"

Re: FILL: Epiphany (2/3)

Mark was about to continue with his instances but then stops abruptly at Chris question, because of his three friends, Chris may know him best (especially if he can see things in Mark that even Wardo can't).

"By George, I think you've got it!" Dustin shouts out, but then represses back to his thirteen-year-old boy antics, of which Mark tunes out.

"Wardo doesn't…" Mark begins but stops at the look Chris gives him, the one that says, 'Seriously, do I really have to rub your nose in it?' And even though it's a rhetorical look, Chris still points out the ignored obvious.

"Mark, the guy is like… your keeper. He makes sure you eat. He makes sure you sleep. He takes you out when you've been cooped up a bit too long and are on the verge of biting heads off. When the scent around you gets questionable, he makes sure you are bathed properly. Hell, the guy is basically funding this idea of yours that has no real guarantee but is an extraordinary and amazing idea none-the-less just because. Do you really think, to him, it's all just… casual?"

At this point, Dustin is sitting on the floor, knee bent, arms hugging his legs as he avidly watches them like some addicted soap opera junkie. The grin on the redhead's face is unnerving, annoying really, and Mark chooses to ignore it, turning back to Chris.

"So Wardo and I," Mark begins, pausing to swallow past the lump in his throat. "So Wardo and I… are dating?"

Chris' laugh is subtle, a sound of friendly affection. "Something like that, yeah. At least… if you two would be honest with each other, and admit that is what you both want, then you two would definitely be dating."

"Huh?" Mark says, and at just that moment, because fate, and karma, and just his plain old luck, Eduardo chooses that moment to show up at their suite, a wide smile on his ridiculously beautiful face as he walks through the door they tend to keep unlocked while they are home.

"Hey," Eduardo greets, Dustin smothering down more uncontrollable laughter and not really smothering it all that much (which isn't surprising), gives Dustin a quizzical and questioning look.

"Ignore him," Chris states, rising from the couch and walking over to where Dustin is sitting on the floor to lever their friend off the floor. "We were just heading out anyway."

"But I want to stay to see the end…"

Dustin's protests fade as Chris hauls him out the door and closes it behind them. Eduardo gives Mark a strange look, completely clueless to what has just transpired, but shrugs it off quickly, smile returning to his face once and in that moment it finally hits Mark, how true Chris' words are, or how true Mark really wants them to be. No matter how much he insisted that what is between Eduardo and himself, no matter how much he wants but always limits himself to admit to wanting, he really wants it.

He really wants to be dating Wardo.

"Hey, you okay?" Eduardo asks with concern, closing the distance towards the couch.

Re: FILL: Epiphany (3/3)

"Are we dating?"

Eduardo stops in his tracks, panic in his eyes. "Ex-Excuse me?"

"I mean… well… I was talking…" Mark really hates this part of relationships, it being the main reason he steers clear of them. "We have sex… like… all the time… but… I mean… does that mean…"

Mark watches as Eduardo's shoulders droop, the man seeming to lose inches in height by the deflation of this posture, and he thinks this is probably not a good thing.

"Mark, I'm…"

"I mean… it's sex… just… Never mind," Mark stands quickly, unable to stay still, fingers itching to do code, as he attempts backtracking the conversation quickly (damn Chris), because the last thing he wants to do is lose his best friend. "Just forget…"

"No, Mark, wait," Eduardo reaches out and grabs a hold of Mark's arm before he has a chance to retreat to his corner of the suite, to hide away in code. "Can we…"

Mark turns around and looks up at Eduardo expectantly, maybe even hopefully, and in return he sees fear, hesitance and maybe, just maybe, a little hope as well.

"What do you want?" Eduardo asks, and Mark isn't surprised by the selflessness of his friend, because Eduardo, he would give a stranger the clothing off his back if he knew they needed it, no questions asked and no concern for himself, and Eduardo giving this because he thinks it's what Mark wants it the last thing Mark wants.

"I think," Mark begins, steeling himself for the truth and putting the ball back in Eduardo's court. "I think I want what you want."

Eduardo's eyes soften, the fear and hesitation bleeding into affection and possibly love (if that is what love looks like), and he pulls Mark a closer, hand not letting go of Mark's arm (perhaps in fear Mark may attempt escape) while the other comes up to stoke fingers across Mark's cheek.

"Mark…"

Mark closes his eyes, hiding the fear and uncertainty he feels, because this is a big step, this could either be the best decision he's ever made in his entire life, or the worst if they don't work out as boyfriends and he ends up losing his best friend in the process. Those thoughts though, all the questions and doubts and negativity float away at the press of Eduardo's lips against his own, and he's quickly reminded of how much he wants this, of how much it could be all worth it (even it it's just for a little while), because Eduardo has always had a way of worshiping him, making each touch, each kiss, each moment feel like the first time with each press of his fingers into flesh, and nip and suck of his mouth on skin. It's a bit overwhelming, knowing there is a person in this world who loves Mark for who he is, knowing all the bad (and the little good) and still wanting to be with him, but Mark chocks it up to the fact that while Eduardo is a higher than average person in intelligence, Eduardo can be really stupid too, but if being stupid allows Eduardo to love Mark, he can accept that about Wardo.

Mark's a little stupid for Eduardo too.
