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.

FORMAT OF PROMPTS;


♥ alphabetize pairings/threesomes/moresomes. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark/Sean etc.)

♥ no "!" in pairings, only in descriptions. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark, FacebookCreator!Eduardo, CFO!Mark)

FILL: call to me with words i never knew (55/?)

(Anonymous)
"Can I ask you something?" Mark says. "This is going to seem like a weird time, probably, I don't know, I just want to ask you before I—whatever. I just had an idea."

"Lay it on me," Eduardo says. God, he sounds so tired already. He sounds like Mark sounds all the time. Mark doesn't get how he survives these trips if this is par for the course just off the tarmac. And he doesn't get why he wants to, more to the point.

"Alright. Hear me out," Mark says, gritting his teeth at the instinctive defensive move, and he launches into it before he can change his mind – just a sketch, just floating it, just nudging it gently across the table. He explains about Chris, the move to Chicago, about the vacancy it's creating.

"And I was kind of thinking that – that you might be the person for that job," he says, voice going all soft at the end of it. "If you wanted a place at Facebook. I know it sounds kind of big, because it is. But – I can't imagine anyone—" he swallows. Eduardo hasn't said anything.

"So I just wanted to ask," Mark finishes meekly.

A pause for a moment, and then Eduardo kind of laughs, affectionately, like he's probably shaking his head where Mark can't see him. "You're kidding, right?"

"Why does everyone keep saying that?" The words are out before Mark can stop them.

"I mean, because it's a ridiculous idea," Eduardo says. Mark doesn't respond. "You know that, right, that it's ridiculous? You can't just bring a random investor into the executive board because there's an opening."

What Mark wants to say is, if you put it that way, doesn't it sound like you can? But what he actually says – rather, blurts, is – "You're not random."

There's another stretch of silence, and then Eduardo says, slightly more levelly – "I, uh, Mark, I don't know. I mean – I guess – we can both think about it, okay?" Mark tries very hard not to hear dismissal in that, though he doesn't hear anger either, but maybe there wouldn't be anger if Eduardo isn't even putting any weight by this.

"I'm really not kidding," he says.

"But you know you can't just give me a job," Eduardo says, and there's a thin, hard little edge to his voice now, a little more noticeable under all the humoring. "You know that's not how it works. Right?"

Mark doesn't say anything, and after a moment he hears another voice from somewhere on Eduardo's end. Eduardo says something back, muffled – Portuguese? – and then he says into the phone, "Mark, I've got to go, but we'll, uh, we'll talk about this, alright? You – you think about it. I'll talk to you soon."

"Okay," Mark says, thinking privately that he's only agreeing to talking, not to thinking.

He reasons that it could have gone a lot worse, once he hangs up, if Chris and Dustin are even in the ballpark. But he stays in the kitchen for a long time afterward anyway, staring unseeingly, unsmilingly at the coffee pot.

Aw, Mark. :( He wants so badly for this to work, and doesn't understand why it might not. I wonder whether one of the main things that has drawn Eduardo to Mark is that, with Mark, Eduardo doesn't feel pressured to be anyone or do anything in particular—he can just be himself—and now Mark is pressuring him, however lightly, to do something that Mark wants him to do. I hope they can work it out.
