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 * PART NINE


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.





It's finally time for part 10, it's been a few months but even after the article of doom, we're still open.

If you have any questions or ideas that I can help you with, feel free to PM me. I'll be around.

Kitty

Wow OP, this is a beautiful prompt ♥ First fic since way back when the TSN fandom had just begun, so I hope nobody's too out of character.



Five Times Mark Comforted His Friends (and One Time He Didn't Have To)



I. CHRIS

It's Monday morning in the office and Chris has that look on his face that sends the intern scurrying across the maze of cubicles to the nearest coffee machine. The sun is shining and the grass in Palo Alto has never been greener.

None of this seems to make any difference to a certain Chris Hughes.

'So what happened this time?' Dustin slides his coffee over to Mark, who drains it in one gulp and hands it back. One indignant look and a set of puppy eyes later, Mark is yelling at the receptionist to yell at the intern to yell at the coffee machine to grind out yet one more cup of heavenly poison.

'Domestic issues.' The new cup of coffee nests snugly within Dustin's palms as Mark replies. After a lengthy silence, Dustin realizes he's not going to get any more of an explanation.

'...So what do we do?' Drumming his pen on the desk as he creates vicious rumors about Eduardo's personal life on online forums, the creator of Facebook offers his brilliant opinion: 'We should get him drunk and --'

Dustin sighs. This is why Chris is the PR; Mark's hopeless at human interaction, although Dustin likes to think his efforts are making some difference. If Facebook had invested money into that cloning business like Dustin had suggested that one time they were half-passed out on a couch after a bug had made the system go into downtime for almost two hours, they could clone Chris and ask Chris-clone how to handle original-Chris' mood swings. Assuming Chris-clone wasn't suffering from the same affliction.

'Well, what do you like having people do when you have domestic issues?' Dustin asks, sitting down. Mark pushes him off the table.

'I don't have issues,' he replies, affronted. 'Domestic or otherwise.'

Dustin pointedly does not mention the summer Mark spent tearing pillows and throwing coffee cups into the pool after being dumped by his long-time girlfriend.

'That was not an issue, that was a momentary lapse of --'

Dustin pointedly does not mention the way Mark has photoshopped Eduardo's head onto a picture of a fairy princess and is currently in the process of uploading it onto Wikipedia.

'...Shut up.'

'I didn't say anything!'

Mark scowls.

'You just did. And I get it already, now go do some work.'

Dustin grins, leaves his half-drunk cup of coffee on Mark's desk, and flounces off right into the intern bringing coffee back to Chris.

Chris stares at Dustin, then the girl, and finally the shattered shards of his hope and liquid happiness melting into the carpet. The sun shrinks behind a cloud.

'Uh...'

Mark hands over Dustin's coffee with a sympathetic shrug.

'I'm sorry about your coffee. It'd be sad if you really needed chemicals and drugs to keep you happy, though. I mean, that's a
legitimate sickness. They have groups for that. But I'm not saying you need to go to them. There are so many other things you could do to cope with life. Like edit pictures. And code viruses. Not saying I've done any of those before. I'm just saying it's an option.'

For one long moment, the Palo Alto office stills. A bird flies into the window. Then Chris smiles and the sun emerges from its hiding place.

'Thanks, Mark, but that's not necessary.' He turns and walks back to his seat. 'Dustin, you should clean up that coffee, though.'

'What?!'

'And make sure you get all the stains out!'



II. DUSTIN (a)

'I can't believe he made me clean up the coffee.'

Mark passes a hand wearily over his eyes.

'Are you actually upset about this or are you just looking for another way to avoid work?' He smoothes out the cover of TIME Magazine while Dustin flaps his arms like a giant chicken.

'I most certainly am upset about it! What are interns for?'

Mark puts his headphones on.

'You're still smiling, so it's okay.' A faint blush powders his
cheeks, and Dustin stares in amazement.

'Yeah,' he says, and plucks the headphones off Mark. 'It's almost seven. Let's go for dinner.'
