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.

THERE WILL BE UNMARKED SPOILERS. enter at your own risk! :D


i know you guys are enjoying this meme and i appreciate that but please can you put the SUBJECT HEADER on your prompt. you would REALLY be helping me out if you could do that. it just saves time for me when i'm trying to tag everything in delicious.

AND PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT repost prompts from parts one, two or three over here again. the delicious is around for people to find prompts they may not have already seen.

FILL: call to me with words i never knew (52/?)

sorry i have become so slow in the summer!! no more homework to motivate me, i guess. but thank you for still reading, you guys make me so happy. i will try to keep up the pace!

It takes Mark about an hour of frantic LinkedIn and bylaws searching to calm down, and then he calls Chris.

"I wasn't serious," Chris says. He sounds genuinely alarmed.

"I know," Mark says dismissively. "But it's completely plausible." A moment of silence. "Isn't it?" he adds, slightly impatient, because he knows it's a good idea, he doesn't need Chris to confirm it. Not really.

"It is," says Chris cautiously after a pause, "but—"

"He's got the credentials. We know he's competent. He already has ties to the company," and Mark ignores Chris' quiet cough, "and in the shares. And we need someone who's able to focus on investments, because that's where we are right now, right?"

"And advertising," Chris says, like it's apropos of nothing.

"One thing at a time," Mark edges, and when there's silence again, he says, "Well?"

"You just need to be sure," Chris says, "that you want to do this for the right reasons."

"Of course I do," says Mark brusquely.

"Like, for the benefit of the company and not because of – other things."

"I wouldn't hire him just to keep him here if I didn't think he'd make a good CFO too," Mark says. "I mean – no. No. I mean that I wouldn't jeopardize the company."

"I know," Chris says, but there's still that irritating note of concern in his voice.

"Say it," Mark says. "You have something to say, say it."

"Okay. I'm sure you know how this is going to look, so you must not be worried about that. But I don't think you're thinking about what Eduardo's going to say."

"I don't think he really wants to go to New York."

"But…I feel like it's more complicated than that." Chris pauses. "I don't know. Just, with his father, and I know you think he lets him walk all over him but this isn't exactly his own choice either, is it?"

"It's not like I'm locking him in the office and forcibly appointing him CFO for life," Mark says exasperatedly.

"Not exactly."

"It's not!"

"Look, whatever," Chris says. "Just try to put yourself in his shoes, you know? And…" He sighs. "Well, let me know how it goes."

"Yeah," Mark says. "Thanks."

Chris just doesn't get how important this is, Mark thinks after he hangs up. He stares down at his hands on the keyboard. Eduardo will understand. Facebook is the right place for him, a good place. The people are better here, and the work is good work, important work – Mark needs someone like Eduardo doing work like that. Eduardo's young, and he's got the right ideas. He'll do so much better in Silicon Valley where everyone has the whole future of the industry ahead of them than he would on Wall Street with the suits and the wives and the steak dinners. The whiskey sours. And his father...Mark knows that's not what Eduardo wants. He wants to be out here. Mark wants him out here.

"I know what it looks like," he mutters to himself. He doesn't care. Facebook is his. He can make the decisions, he's perfectly capable. Eduardo isn't in his 40s, but it's a young company – and there are plenty of people in their 40s in the wings, enough for Mark's liking. He's willing to take a chance, if that's how people are going to want to see it, even though it's not a chance. He feels – sure.

He knows there's another facet to this, of course, beyond New York, beyond the industry, but he can't bring himself to consider it. It just – it confuses him to put Eduardo and – and last night, and all of that alongside the company in his mind. He doesn't know how to fit them together.

It's like a puzzle, this strange new sweep of his life. There used to be just one thing, the company. Now it feels like there's so many things trying to form that same picture. Even though he knows there's not that many. Just Eduardo.

So maybe this is how it all fits, bringing Eduardo in. Maybe this is the answer.

Mark fucking hopes so.

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (52/?)

yay. i'm so glad you updated. i love this fic!

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (52/?)

I feel so full of trepidation for what will happen next! How will Eduardo respond?! I feel like he'd definitely have to be talked into it, because he doesn't want to be handed this amazing opportunity just because he's sleeping with Mark. I mean, he's already used his father's connections, adding his lover's influence will probably make him feel a bit sleazy. But no matter what, I hope they figure out a way to stay together. They make sure a lovely couple.

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (52/?)

Yay, update! :D I'm pretty sure this suggestion isn't going to go down well with Eduardo though...

Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (52/?)

Yay! Update! Ooooooooooooh, I can see Eduardo taking this badly. Well done: this orchestrates the difficulty of the canon well, but also allows it to be taken in another direction, while still keeping the fundamental--what the fuck are we doing in this company together, fuck--problem.


Re: FILL: call to me with words i never knew (52/?)

Words cannot express the level of I joy I get from reading this fic. <3
