[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.)
♥ 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.

FILLS:

♥ 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.

Kitty

Eduardo/Mark, kid!fic

(Anonymous)

So this has been done over and over and over again.

BUT I STILL CAN'T GET ENOUGH.

I'd like an AU where Erica gets pregnant, does not want to have Mark's baby, is contemplating abortion, which she thinks Mark will be fine with, because he's all robot-like, and an asshole, and 19 years old, and a Harvard undergrad who got full marks on his SATs.

Except...

Mark can't let her do that. Even he can't really articulate why. He just...yes, rationally, he knows it's a foetus in her stomach, and it's not a fully-formed baby...but he can't just let it die.

And Erica's respect for him returns, and she can't give up her future or her career for this child, but she agrees.

Cue Mark's mom flying in to help, Eduardo taking him shopping for baby supplies, paying for everything with his oil futures money (and typical Mark can't work out why).

And then Mark has the idea for facebook, and then Erica has the baby, and everyone is moving to Palo Alto.

Except this time...Eduardo loves Mark's kid too much to just intern in NY. So no matter how much Sean Parker pisses the fuck out of him, he's going to take care of the baby, fix up the shithole that is the Palo Alto house AND be the best CFO on the planet while Mark and Dustin and the rest are busy coding their way to a billion dollars.

OMG THIS IS SO LONG. FORGIVE ME, EVERYONE.

"I'm pregnant."

Her hair is messy, matted with sweat. She's still in the clothes she'd been wearing earlier, inside the pub. Her hands are shaking a little bit, and her eyes are all pupil, dark and dewy.

The inside of Mark's head feels like it's full of cotton. Clearly, he's had one beer too many. He can't even respond, that is how out of it he feels. On the bed, Dustin's eyes are red because he's still blazed, but he's sitting stock still. Chris is standing (he'd answered the door) but he isn't moving either. His mouth is hanging open.

Thankfully, Eduardo is there, and he's always been quick on the uptake. He strides over to Mark's laptop, deletes the last three blog updates, all that crap about 32B and Albrecht and farm animals. Then he turns to Erica. "Are you sure?"

She nods, whole body trembling now. "I went back to my dorm, and I -- I was sick. My friend had two spare tests. They were both positive."

Eduardo exhales roughly, glancing at Mark. "Okay. I -- okay. We'll just give you guys some time to talk."

"No!" Erica almost shouts. She's staring at Mark too, and there's some inscrutable expression on her face. Like she's afraid of him or something. "Please stay."

Eduardo is silent for a long moment before he nods, guiding her gently towards the bed, hand hovering against the small of her back. Dustin scoots away to make room, and Chris lowers himself to the floor, still gaping ridiculously.

"Is it mine?" Are the first words out of Mark's mouth. It's the logical question to ask in this kind of situation. He doesn't understand why Chris buries his face in his hands with a groan, nor can he parse Erica's glare.

"Yes," she hisses.

"But --" Mark struggles, tripping over his whirling thoughts, acutely aware of everybody else in the room. "We only -- that one time -- I wore -- how?"

"I don't know!" Fuck. Now her voice is quivering too. "I have no idea. Oh my god, what am I going to do? What am I going to tell my parents?"

She's looking at him helplessly, but he's never been good at comfort or reassurance...or any kind of emotion, really: he can only blink.

And then her face just crumples. She's crying with great choking sobs that rack her tiny frame. Mark can still only stare, at a loss, and Dustin looks mildly horrified.

Eduardo and Chris though, move immediately into action.

"It's going to be okay," Eduardo is saying, over and over again, an arm around her shoulder. Chris kneels uncertainly in front of them both, holding out a box of Kleenex.

She wipes at her face with a handful, make-up tracking down her face in unattractive clumps. "I can't tell them." She's hiccuping slightly, but she's shaking her head firmly. "I just can't. I have to -- I'm going to have to -- oh god --" The cries get louder, and she's got both hands pressed tight against her abdomen.

When it hits Mark what she's trying to say, there's a flash of something cold and unpleasant down his spine.

"No," he chokes out, "you can't."

Erica quietens, voice pleading and apologetic and decided all at once. "I can't keep it, Mark. I have college to think about. We both do. How would we raise it? My parents work, they wouldn't be able to help me, and --"

"Okay," Mark cuts her off, heart beating at a million miles an hour, but his mind suddenly completely clear. He knows what he has to do. "So I'll keep it. By myself."

They're all staring at him, eyes wide. He knows what they're all thinking - you can't even take care of yourself - but he doesn't care. He doesn't care. That isn't important.

He'll work something out.

"Mark," Dustin says, sounding about as scandalized as a stoned college boy can be. "Do you realize that I've seen you eat Red Vines and Mountain Dew for breakfast?"

Chris slaps Dustin on the knee to shut him up, but he too exchanges a worried glance with Eduardo, nervously biting his lip. "Mark, I -- I think you should take some time to really think about this."

"There's nothing to think about," Mark shrugs.

It's not true. He knows that there are a million variables to consider here. Even as that thought occurs to him, he starts mentally compiling a list of all the things he'll need to buy, and read, and learn. But the thought of what Erica plans to do...god, he doesn't even know why it's getting to him so much...why it's making him feel kind of physically ill.

"Mark," she says gently, watching him from the bed, palms still folded protectively over the front of her sweater. "I agree with your friends. You're drunk. You don't know what you're saying. This must have been as big a shock for you as it was for me. I -- I'm sorry, I shouldn't have rushed over here. Let's talk tomorrow, when we've both had some time to sleep on things."

She gets up to leave.

"No!" Mark jumps up from his chair, coming to stand in front of her. "Please, Erica. I -- I apologize for the way I behaved earlier tonight." He swallows hard, trying to keep his voice steady, trying to keep his words from jumbling up the way they do when he gets anxious. "But I -- I don't want you to -- please don't --"

He stops, breathing hard, aware that he's not meeting her eyes. Instead, he's kind of just staring at her stomach.

"Do you want to..." Her voice has gone kind of soft and wobbly. He doesn't have to look up to know what she's asking.

Strangely enough, the answer is yes. His hand is unsteady as it reaches towards her midsection, and he watches it continue to tremble as it lies flat against her cotton-soft pullover, against the warmth of her skin underneath.

"It's been what? About five weeks right?" he murmurs, counting back to the first week of the Fall semester.

"Yeah," she breathes.

"It's probably got a heart, you know? A really small one."

She laughs a little, but it sounds awful, wet and pained. "How do you know that?"

"I took introduction to biology last year." Reluctantly, he pulls his hand away. "Please let me keep it." He looks up to meet her eyes, holds them. "Please."

There's a second of silence before -

"I'll think about it, okay?" she says, voice small and afraid.

It's not the answer he'd wanted, and some part of him wants to snap that the decision isn't hers alone to make.

Maybe Eduardo sees that in his face, because before Mark can say anything else, he touches a hand to Erica's shoulder and says, "Come on. It's late; you can't go back to BU by yourself. I've got a single. You can stay there tonight."

"Are you sure? What about you?"

"It's fine." Eduardo smiles. "I'll just crash in here."

When Eduardo returns, after walking Erica over to Eliot, Dustin is busy Googling "five week old baby", Chris is making tea, and Mark is dialling his home phone number.

Re: The Luckiest (1b)

Oh my goodness...this is so incredible....please don't ever stop posting this and kudos to the op for this idea....I don't think it's been done over and over again...in fact I don't think it's been done at all and this is an incredible idea!

Re: The Luckiest (1b)

°___°!!!! you know that now you have a sort of moral obligation toward us to not stop this, right?

(pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease ç_______ç)

Re: The Luckiest (1b)

I love your Erica characterization; the way she's shocked and angry and scared and doesn't just give in to Mark, because she doesn't really trust him nor she trusts him to make the best decision and she's right (she probably doesn't trust herself to make the best decision in that moment either). Ugh this is so good.

Also, I have a lot of Erica feelings, and in the movie we only see her interact with Mark, but I love when writers have her interact with the rest of the Facebook Four.

Really enjoying this. <3

The Luckiest - Author's Poll

(Anonymous)

Hey guys!

Thanks so much to everyone who's commented so far! You're all lovely.

I was just wondering: what gender does the OP (and anybody else who's reading) want the baby to be?

I'm undecided, and obviously it's not going to be revealed for a while yet, so I thought I'd ask everyone.

Let me know! :)

Oh and by the way, ALSO NAMES. I NEED NAMES. Preferably ones that have some kind of meaning or significance for Mark or Erica.

Re: The Luckiest - Author's Poll

(Anonymous)
the first name that came to mind was Perl um, Pearl, because Mark would definitely name their baby after a programming language.

Maybe Edward? Because that's Mark Zuckerberg's father's name, and is also the English translation of Eduardo.

Re: The Luckiest - Author's Poll

Oh yes I'd def vote for Edward....I can just see how that would make Eduardo go even crazier :)

Re: The Luckiest - Author's Poll

A girl! Maybe one named Ellie, because... that sounds like Eliot... and I like the name Ellie. Wow, that would be a terrible thing to name your kid after. I just really like the name oKAY augh
