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

FILL (2/4)

III. EDUARDO (a)

There had been a time, in college, when Eduardo came to Mark for comfort.

Mark could tell how bad the problem was by looking at the creases between Eduardo's eyebrows and the angle of his mouth. Big crease, little crease; a curved arc tilted slightly south. Today he would sit by Eduardo for thirty-five minutes (with his laptop, of course, let's not get too greedy) and then offer the other man a chocolate if he was still upset.

Sometimes, Eduardo would arrive in the room with eyes sparkling and hands balled into fists by his side. When that happened, Mark would carry his laptop over, sit down with Eduardo on the bed and they would watch movies together with Mark's arm around Eduardo's shoulders.

Once, Dustin waltzed into the room with Chris standing awkwardly at his side to see Mark and Eduardo fast asleep, heads together, Mark's left arm curled around Eduardo's waist. Mark's laptop rested comfortably on his thighs, tilted ever so slightly towards the sliver of air between the two men's knees.

Dustin had felt a slight twinge of something, as if he had just been left out of a great and mysterious connection that would never wither despite time's best efforts.

Then the rains came, and whatever there had been melted away into foggy memories and lines of numbers on sheets of bleached-white wood.



IV. EDUARDO (b)

He drops by Mark's house on New Year's Eve. Dustin's left the house to grab some chips from the store. While he's out, Eduardo drives by Mark's house, eyes bright and shining with something that isn't quite rage anymore.

When Dustin returns, Mark is sitting stiffly on the couch staring with strained eyes through the gloom at the harsh light of his computer screen. The smell of alcohol permeates the room. It takes Dustin a moment to recognize the figure resting against Mark's shoulder,
clinging to Mark's arm.

'Eduardo?' His voice comes out cracked and husky, so much of a whisper it's almost a gasp, but Mark shudders violently out of his trance, meeting Dustin's eyes with defiance.

'He...he said it might be okay soon.'

When Eduardo leaves the next morning, Mark holds out his arms.

'I'll do that thing for you - the one we used to do, sometimes, with the --'

'It's called a hug, Mark, stop looking like a homicidal squirrel, okay?' And Eduardo smiles, and Mark smiles back, and Dustin feels his heart constrict so much he thinks it might burst...

Eduardo leaves, and Mark shuts the door, and Dustin does not ask.



V. DUSTIN (b)

Something's wrong, but whatever it is, Dustin's not telling Mark. He won't tell Chris, either, because Chris works for Facebook and is thus an extension of Mark, no matter what the blonde man says.

'For goodness' sake, Dustin, don't compare me to Mark. I'm normal, honestly.'

Dustin waves his friend away with a regal toss of his head.

'Is it the puppy thing again? I've already told you, Dustin, zombies don't exist, so there isn't a company in the world which will back you up in your creation of a Puppy Protection Union In the Case of Zombie Apocalypse.'

'I never said they exist, I just said it's a very real possibility! And it's got nothing to do with that!'

'...I've already said I won't tell Mark.'

Chris is the PR. He's a skilled liar. Dustin has seen Chris talk up the new Facebook Timeline like it's a gift from the gods, but Dustin has also seen Chris' customized Facebook page, which is oddly lacking in Timeline features.

'He's just worried about you, Dustin.'

If Mark was worried about Dustin, why wasn't he sitting on Dustin's bed with his arm around Dustin's waist? Why didn't Dustin ever get the hug thing? Why was he so upset, anyway?

Chris tugs on Dustin's sleeve. Dustin looks up and sees that Chris has gone a little pale, but is smiling gently, so gently, as if he knows something Dustin doesn't.

He probably does, but that's not the point.

'I won't tell Mark,' Chris promises, and lets go. Dustin watches him wander off and wonders what just happened.
