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.

Mark/Eduardo - Facebook take-over

I know crap all about business, so I'm not sure if this is even possible, or whatever. But several shareholders plan a coup to take-over from Mark. Somehow they have gained enough share control to do so (work with my feeble business knowledge here) - and between Mark, Dustin and their loyal friends they don't have enough to retain control. People want to call Eduardo in, but the relationship between Mark and Eduardo is still very frosty and Mark doubts Eduardo will help.

At the coup meeting, Eduardo dramatically comes to Mark's rescue (epic scene!).

...brownie points for Eduardo sekretly working behind the scenes to save Mark/Facebook's arse (like buying bad people out; or pretending to be against Mark). ...god I read too many cliche fics, yeah?

Facebook take-over - crappy fill

*cough* A few notes:
- My first fic in *ages*. Un-beta'd, and probably horrifically written. If anyone wants to beta it and turn it into some sort of sense...go for it.
- I have no idea about a) business b) board meetings or c) Facebook's structure
- From what I do know, this is totally unlikely as Zuck has like 50% voting shares...so let's just go with the flow of movie!Mark not having that protection and roll with it
- I've grabbed the names of a bunch of Facebook people, sorry to them in advance XD
- I'd have loved this to be slashy, but I'm too scared to write smut. So, if someone wants to do a slashy coda, go for it (iwants!)
- There is quite a bit of swearing in this. Sorry! :D

There are four people in his office, and none of them (currently) work for Facebook. Mark has an open can of Red Bull (now warm) and a half-eaten red vine next to a sheet of paper on his desk. The paper has several names on it, and only one of them is of any importance to him:

Saverin, Eduardo

It is wrong. A mistake, and it shouldn’t be there - this doesn't seem to matter to the rest of the room. Randi is organising the whiteboard into a list of "for" and "against" (Sean suggested, "Dicks", but Randi vetoed that idea, but flashed a grin all the same). Chris is leaning against the door, on the phone to a lawyer (Mark isn't sure - and doesn't care - who), while Dustin paces in front talking to ...whoever Dustin talks to.

Saverin, Eduardo

Sean is mid-rant - "y'know, I can't believe this of him. Saverin and I might dislike each other" (Randi snorts) "-but this isn't like him. I mean, fuck, he was chatting to me last time I saw him. You know, that benefit thing, shit what was it? You were there Chris, which was it?" (Chris hushes him) "He should have been a librarian, man. The gig that the Sony dick was at, kept glaring at me, fuck it isn't my fault they didn't modernise faster".

Saverin, Eduardo

Sean; Chris and Dustin; Randi - even his usual outlets of Red Bull, coding and Red Vines - can't stop him from staring at the bit of paper. It isn't like E-Ed-Wardo. He might get pissed, but... well, Mark is a master at deluding himself about Eduardo. Wardo will come out. Wardo won't sue. Wardo won't leave. Leave the country, renounce his citizenship and never come back.


Saverin, Eduardo


Mark looked up. Wardo's name is on the wrong side of Randi's columns, and she is giving him that look - the look his mother gives him whenever she finally tracks him down. Sean looks like he's gearing up for round...four? And Chris snaps his phone shut looking defeated.

"It's going ahead - Breyer has indicated that he has a majority support and apparently that means they can bypass clause 15(3) and can call an emergency shareholder meeting. They'll out Mark and then have to follow usual procedures to appoint a new CEO".


"By my calculations it's still borderline," Randi indicated the board, "Even with Eduardo's 5%, I don't see how they have majority".

"Eduardo's got more than 5%", Dustin said - sighed - he leans next to Chris and waved his phone, "He's bought out Pincus and D'Angeo"

Re: Facebook take-over - crappy fill p2

"Fuck this shit, it is like something Marvel would write", Sean's comment was mostly drowned out by Chris and Randi's exclamations. Still, Mark thought, kind of funny given Breyer used to work for them. "I'm making some calls".

Dustin had an odd look on his face as he walks into the room. Mark doesn't like serious-Dustin all that much, the few times Mark has had serious-Dustin talk to him, Mark has needed a strong drink... perhaps he can finally concentrate on coding..."If Eduardo's buying out shareholders..."


"Mark, you can't expect good things out of this"

"Wardo wouldn't."

"You think I like saying this? Sean's contact at Microsoft said Eduardo has been meeting with Thiel, Van Natta and Breyer for months now. Mark -", Dustin cuts off and walks away. His hands are shaking. Chris looked paler than usual and Randi looks grim. She doesn't stay quiet -

"If Eduardo has bought out Pincus and D'Angelo, that makes his share - what?"

Chris looked at Mark, "How much?"


Chris sighed, "The others on that list could be buying up too, and did Marc say anything else? Dustin? Dust-"

"I heard you. Fuck, I don't know. He just said Ed-- Why would Wardo do this?", Dustin's eyes look glassy, and Mark decides to stop looking. Wardo's name was still on the wrong column, and now had the wrong number beside it. Sean was walking outside his office, gesturing wildly...more wildly than usual. Randi had moved behind his desk and to his side, she doesn't touch him, but he can feel her body heat...the smell was wrong, but Mark still thinks of his mother. Randi is tense, like he feels, but she doesn’t talk. Mark is grateful.

The room is blessedly quite for awhile – the murmers between Chis and Dustin are quiet enough that Mark can hear Randi’s breathing and the hum of his computer more clearly. Of course, does what Sean does best and breaks things up -

"That fucker. Eduardo is a fucking dick, even I have to applaud this one".

"Wardo's on our side?!", Dustin exclaims – and if Mark is honest with himself - he feels a quick stab of joy before the twist of Sean's mouth dashes it.

"Nah, nothing that good, but this is rather sweet actually. He's bought out the Winklevosses."

That brings Mark up short, "The Winklevii would never sell their shares".

"Well, they did, for a sweet profit actually, if you can believe what I was told Saverin paid for them...which is ridiculous. Maybe the twins thought it was funny - Eduardo uses money he sued you for, to pay for shares the twins sued you to get".


"Oh come on, Hughes, it's worth a smirk, right?"

Randi tries to put them back on track, "If this is all true, then we are at risk - clearly this group are bolstering their numbers with those from minor shareholders. Can we swing any of the major players back to our side?".

"Our best bet was Elevation, but I spoke to Linzy, and they are steady in their support for Breyer." Mark thinks that could be Bono’s lot, but who cares about Bono? Wardo should be their best bet.

They were all looking at him.

"Did I say that out loud?" Fuck. Chris was getting that look on his face. The same look he had when he knew about the dilution. After the depositions were signed off. When Wardo left. "I'm going home".

Re: Facebook take-over - crappy fill p3

It was a ridiculously nice day. Mark hadn't slept - but he told Chris he had. Chris clearly didn't believe him - but Chris didn't call Mark on it. It would be slightly hypocritical of Chris, since clearly no one else at the table had slept either. Mark figured he looks like them - probably slightly sweaty and sick (Dustin) and pale with bruised looking eyes (Chris). Sean was currently the best looking of the bunch, but even then each of his shit-eating grins looked more like grimaces and didn't last long.

Mark didn't ask, and Randi’s unusually fumbled conversation with him in the hallway told him enough. It was obvious that they would be outvoted. Randi was camped outside the meeting room with several other Facebook employees. The piece of paper was gone, but two words - that name - kept circling through his mind.

The room began to fill - the convenor taking his place at the head of the table and talking to Mark...the words becoming a nice buzz that reminded Mark of the white noise sound of the Facebook offices. The tea lady was bustling around – placing several cans of Red Bull to the side of Mark...it was like a normal board meeting. The suits arrived shortly before 8am. A collection of people that Mark had invited into Facebook, willingly. Thiel, Van Natta and the visual representations of the various major companies. And him.

War-Eduardo walked in last and went straight for the coffee table, as if he had any right to need a caffeine boost. There was a pained sound from his left - Dustin. Chris settled a hand on Dustin's shoulder. Mark's help was far more practical, he nudged his Red Bull Dustin's way, but didn't stop looking at the line of Eduardo's back. He must have felt Mark's stare as the head turned just fractionally. Their eyes didn’t quite meet – it was more Eduardo could feel that Mark was watching him, and acknowledging that back at Mark. Mark and his side of the table. All 49.8% of them.

When Eduardo did take his seat it actually ended up - as suits seemed to take up a lot of room - on Mark's 'side' of the table.

"Wardo" - Dustin, again. The voice made the back of Mark's head prickle. It reminded him too much of a, "Mark" that he had heard right after he had lost a laptop and a best friend.

"Dustin, don’t", that was Chris, sounding almost as bad as Dustin.

"Nah Hughes, let him talk, I want to hear what 'Wardo' has to say"

"Wardo, what's going on? What are you doing?"

Eduardo did turn to look at them - Dustin mostly, but his eyes seemed to flicker between Sean, Chris, Dustin...and him. Maybe. It was hard to tell from the corner of his eyes. Mark had mostly kept his gaze on the can of Red Bull he'd pushed Dustin's way.

"Mr. Moskovitz, perhaps you could save this for after the meeting?", that was Breyer. Which was followed by a, "Fuck off, Jim", and before it blew completely out of hand the convenor cleared his throat far too loudly and Mark had to stop himself from playing the Imperial March inside his head. They were going to take his company. His Facebook... and Wardo – Eduardo - his Wardo who said 'I'm here for you' and spent months just staring at Mark like he was waiting for something - was going to help them do it.

Mark didn't really think before he did it, as the chatter between Breyer and the convenor filled the air and everyone else on his side was watching...Mark looked at Eduardo. He was looking back, and Mark had no idea why people kept saying Eduardo was so easy to read. Because Mark couldn't read anything off him - but that didn't stop Mark from trying to. Trying to see what Eduardo was wanting from this, and why this was the first Facebook meeting he'd ever attended in person - why it was so important to be at the one when he planned to-

Mark looked down. He much preferred old Eduardo - the one that Mark didn't have to try and read, because the old Eduardo would never do this.

Re: Facebook take-over - crappy fill p4

"--the motion Breyer has placed before this Board has been approved, given stipulations under 15(3) of the Constitution. It is open to vote - we have ballots from those unable to attend and they stand at 3.2% in favour of the motion and 2.5% against. Mr Zuckerberg, I assume your shareholder votes will be going to yourself?", Mark rolled his eyes - obviously - "I will take responses from the Board now".

There was a flurry of activity, but Mark only paid attention to a few voices -

"Sean Bruce - yes, that's my middle name – Parker and my 4% is 100% behind my man Mark, here. And fuck the lot of you"

"Chris Hughes - I don't think middle names are needed, Sean - And for once in my life I fully support Sean Parker's comments. My support is behind Mark Zuckerberg"

"Well obviously - my support is for Mark Zuckerberg. You lot Can’t Stop The Signal! And yes, you can put that on the record", Dustin exclaimed while pointing at the stenographer.

Mark's heart may have flipped just a bit. Only Dustin would make Firefly references while still looking shaken and upset. And who knew Chris and other!Sean would ever agree? He watched as Sheryl and Mike made quick statements of support. There were surprises - like David and Theodore backing Breyer's group...and Breyer made his statement -

"47% combined support for the motion as it stands. In addition to the 3.2% from those unable to attend this meeting", Breyer looked across at Mark's bowed head, "that makes 50.2% support for the motion to remove Mark Zuckerberg from his place as CEO". Mark wished he had enough energy to be witty and do that calculation jibe he made at Gretchen so long ago, but he was empty. Eduardo hadn’t said anything.

"Do any of these shareholders wish to make statement along with their vote?"


"The Chair recognises Eduardo Saverin", Mark didn't want to look. He couldn't. He had to. Eduardo's eyes had a shine to them and there was a slight curl to his mouth that he sometimes had when Mark was being particularly cruel to other people. Or perhaps Mark was being nostalgic.

"I would like it recorded that my share equity has increased to 8.1%"

"Noted, Mr. Saverin"

"And that as a founding member of this company, and major shareholder, I fully support Mark Zuckerberg as CEO and strongly denounce any moves to replace him".

Re: Facebook take-over - crappy fill p5 (end)

Mark may have had a slight moment of vertigo. Or whiplash - because he felt rather dizzy, and quick looks between Eduardo - Wardo - and Breyer didn't make sense. Breyer and Thiel were yelling at Wardo. And Wardo looked - happy. Mark looked to his side of the table and there didn't seem to be much comprehension on that side either. The entire table seemed chaotic.

" - the hell, Saverin?"

"- fuck me, Eduardo is a clever sonofabitch - "

Sheryl might be crying.

" - could call this meeting to order, please -"

" - never going to work in business again, Saverin. I'll see that -"

Chris is smiling.

" - me, Eduardo, we had a -"

"WARDO!", Dustin barrelled across the table and into Eduardo's lap to grasp him in a bear hug that ended up with them both toppling out and onto the floor. It seemed to stop a lot of the chaos, and Sean decided this was time to put his shit-eating grin back on.

"So yeah, with our 49.8% and Wardo's 8.1%, I think that add's up to majority vote, yeah".

The convenor looked rather cross, but managed to declare that if there isn't sufficient majority then the meeting will be closed. Dustin and Eduardo managed to stand, even with Dustin clinging to Eduardo and a combination crying and laughing at the same time. Eduardo just looked flushed and happy. As the suits cleared the room with angry looks, Dustin tugged Eduardo over to their side. Mark meets them half-way and pulls Dustin away - and, he'd say he hugs Wardo, but Sean later joked that he's read trashy romance novels that had less, 'swooning' into another person's arms.


"Mark", Eduardo's voice is soft and warm, making Mark remember all the times when he's used a similar tone with him. Combined with one hand curling into Mark's hair, and the other pulling him in closer, Mark feels exhausted and sated at the same time, “Never - I want – need you to know”, Wardo’s hand curled tighter in his hair, “Never”.


And even with Dustin hovering, the sound of Sean chattering behind him and the scent of Chris's cologne...Mark can't really feel too bothered with the scene they must be making.

Re: Facebook take-over - crappy fill p5 (end)

hehehe this isn't crappy! It's adorable!

But um, I don't understand the ending...are they kissing, or still hugging, or what? :S

Still liked it a lot though!

Re: crappy fill writer

LOL, it is vague on purpose. ...mostly because I wanted it to be slashy, but didn't know how to write it. So, I just left it open. The fic is gen(ish, given Sean's mouth) as it stands, but I think of it as pre-slash XD

I guess I'd hope they are snogging like mad :D

Re: Facebook take-over - crappy fill p5 (end)

yay wardo!

absolutely loved this.

Re: Facebook take-over - crappy fill p5 (end)

This is fucking adorable. It's like 5am where I am and I need to be up at 8 but omg, I couldn't tear myself away this is too cute for words ♥
