Eduardo/Mark

(Anonymous)
The day Eduardo decides to finally forgive Mark and attempt to be friends (or more than) again







is the day Mark commits suicide.

FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 1/3

WARNING: MAJOR CHARACTER DEATH. SUICIDE. IMPLIED MENTAL ILLNESS/DISTRESS.

“Wardo.”

He wants to say shut the fuck up don’t call me that, you’ve got some nerve calling me, you fucking asshole and he’s so, so angry. “Mark,” he says through gritted teeth.

Mark cuts to the chase. He always has. “Do you think you could ever forgive me?”

Eduardo laughs. It’s ugly sounding. Mark hasn’t even said sorry. “No,” Eduardo says.

Mark lost the right to ask anything of him the day he made Eduardo sign his own death warrant.

Eduardo hangs up.

*

Eduardo will replay the moment in his mind.

“No,” he says viciously.

“No.” he says honestly.

NO.

He says no.

(In the moment between him saying no and him hanging up, he swears he can hear Mark breathing deeply like he’s trying not to cry.

He will remind himself Mark is not his problem anymore.)

*

It takes a lot of time for him to come to terms with it. A lot of therapy. He’s had a lot of anger inside him for so long that he didn’t even know.

Today, finally, five years on, he feels ready. He thinks he can let it go. When he looks back, he can see Mark, nineteen and nervous. Mark had so many things he wanted. He was right anyway in the end and Eduardo didn’t see. Eduardo was hurt and betrayed and all he had felt was anger.

Maybe he can’t forgive Mark today but he knows he can take the step towards it. Someday, he will. He feels differently about it now. He’s older too and he knows, these things pass. He knows that withholding forgiveness is stopping him from moving on. He, too, needs to know that he can be a better person.

He has never quite managed to forget Mark. How could he? The circles they run in are so small. He doesn’t usually say anything to him but he knows Mark is there. That Mark watched him sometimes, most of the time. He watched Mark too.

To him, Mark made a decision that was like pressing a delete key on their relationship. He erased their friendship. But now Eduardo wants to CTRL + Z that.

Eduardo has slid the bar on his phone so many times, he’s worried he might actually break it. He wipes it on the hem on his shirt. The number was easy to get a hold of, too easy.

This is the hardest part.

He calls and waits.

Beep beep. Beep beep. Beep beep.

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” ~Lewis B. Smedes


FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 2/3

Mark knows he should not be alive.

He has this feeling trapped deep in his bones. He knows he does not deserve to be successful. He cheated. He stabbed his friend in the back so he could get his empire. He is a traitor. Everything good that happens to him is an aberration of the universe. It’s something wrong. He is wrong, wrong, wrong.

Chris and Dustin left him. For professional reasons.

But Mark knows.

It was what he did.

And then – what he didn’t do.

They will never forgive him.

He deserves that.

In quiet moments, he will always hear the horribly laugh followed by the clipped, cold, “No.”

No.

He hears I will never forgive you.

No.

He hears I can never forget what you’ve done to me.

No.

He hears You should rot in hell.

Eduardo will never forgive him.

He doesn’t deserve forgiveness.

Eduardo won’t even look at him.

Mark doesn’t deserve that either.

It’s all Mark’s fault.

He has lived with it for so long but he’s just so tired now, so tired. He can feel it in his body, he’s worked too hard, he has ground himself down and he does not care.

There is only one way to make it right. He’s planned this. He’s felt a lot better recently. He’s had this to look forward to.

He lies to everyone.

He’s a liar.

It’s so easy.

He hopes everyone won’t hate him. Hate him more than they do already. Its okay he tells himself, he won’t have to know. He will be dead and in the ground and everyone will be better off without him.

Mark’s scared and he wants to put it off but this is for the best. He wants to ask Eduardo to forgive him. One last time. Not for himself, because he doesn’t deserve it but Eduardo should forgive him because he deserves better.

He shouldn’t talk to Eduardo. Eduardo doesn’t want to talk to him. No one talks to him anymore. When he is dead he will say nothing. And maybe they will feel bad. They will say all these good things about him but it’s too late. It’s in internet ink, it’s in print, it’s everywhere. He’s a traitor and he betrayed his only friend.

Mark is sorry.

He would have said it to Eduardo if he thought it would make a difference.

He feels so cold and he’s shivering even though he hasn’t done anything, not yet. Mark wants to call a friend like its some goddamned game show. He wants to make it easier. To not be so alone. He wants someone to tell him it’s going to be okay.

He does not deserve it.

”I kneel in the nights
before tigers
that will not let me be.

what you were
will not happen again.
the tigers have found me
and I do not care.” – ‘For Jane’ by Charles Bukowski

FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3

This is how it ends:

Mark never picks up the phone. Instead he picks up a gun and there is a bang and that’s all it takes.

Eduardo will leave a message telling him that he would like to speak with him, to meet up with him and to call him back. He will tell Mark that he wants to start over from the beginning.

The next morning, he will wake up and he will see the headline: CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg commits suicide.

Eduardo will drop everything and it will be too late.

They can never go back.

He will remember Mark saying, “I need you.”

He will remember Mark saying, “We did it.”

He will remember Mark saying, “You signed the papers.”

He will remember Mark saying, “Do you think you could ever forgive me?”

He will remember saying, “No.”

He will remember the moment after that just before he cut Mark off and wish he didn’t let him go.

(In his memory, Mark inhales sharply.

Eduardo says, “Yes. Someday.”

Mark exhales, a sigh of relief. Mark breathes.)

Re: FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3

Case,

My heart aches and I'm currently sad and uh, maybe a little teary-eyed? I'm glad to be reading one of your stories again and I enjoyed this through the painful situation...

(In his memory, Mark inhales sharply.

Eduardo says, “Yes. Someday.”

Mark exhales, a sigh of relief. Mark breathes.)

Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaate because I was writing and reading more porn what is my life but better late than never yes?

Yeah you know how some prompts just *call* you and you feel like you have to write it? So I felt like I absolutely had to write this for some reason and alicedawkins told me I need to come with a warning label. All that ANGST and all. I don't even know where it comes from. Well I do now that I think about it because I used to be like that even if I'm not anymore. But apparently I'm in touch with my inner angst demon. It gets love from my fic /rambles tmi.

Glad you liked it <3

Thank you!

Re: FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3

D: D: D: D:

I am like cryyyying right now.

Re: FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3

(Anonymous)
I started crying when I read the prompt xD oh god I'm pathetic

Re: FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3

/changes topic like a Mark.

I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU.

:D :D :D :D

I really am.

Guess I owe more happy fic :P

Thank you for the comment!

Re: FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3

It just figures that the day I decide I will not fic is the day you write the PERFECT FIC OF MY DREAMS. And you know it, too, don't you. Not like I haven't told you enough. :nod:

I am sitting here crying. In that way that crying does nothing, and you keep doing it because your eyes are stinging too bad -- there's too much pain -- for it to stop. Just crying and crying and crying. And I know I'm going to reread this over and over for years, and cry every single time.

We have discussed at length my love for deathfics. This is exactly the deathfic I didn't even know I've been picturing for weeks since I saw the movie, since I discovered this fandom. The deathfic where Mark's coldness hides the fact that it's killing him, how Eduardo reacted to the dilution. The deathfic where Eduardo picks up the phone to say he can forgive and it's too late. He let him go, and Mark went. He went to a place where Eduardo cannot reach.

The little parts of this that get to me. Mark not believing Chris and Dustin left for professional reasons. Mark trying not to cry after Eduardo says "No." Eduardo realizing he was wrong, eventually, and knowing he can forgive, never having forgotten Mark. The way Mark calls himself a liar as if it's fact.

The fact that Mark used a gun instead of trying to make himself hurt: that to Mark, this, like everything else, was just the logical solution of the problem of his existence. Not meant to punish or draw attention, just to get rid of himself so that other people feel better.

Problem solved.

And it is too late to do anything to fix what Eduardo has done. :shakes head:

Still crying. You...FUCK. You just do things to my heart, Casey. I love you so much and your brain...it is incredible. ♥

Re: FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3

OOPS.

:holds you: (I know it's late ok but cuddling? :woobie look: CUDDLING. LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED.)

He went to a place where Eduardo cannot reach.

YOU KILLED ME WITH THIS LINE. WHY SO ELOQUENT? YOU ARE THE BEST KIND OF REVIEWER I SWEAR YOU SAY IT BETTER THAN ME.

The fact that Mark used a gun instead of trying to make himself hurt

I chose that for a reason yeah so I love that you picked up on it. I think he wanted no way it could fail. It's a permanent 'solution' as you said. And Mark just executes it like that. Not to drag it out. Like code. He's done with the compiling.

Eduardo didn't mean to but it doesn't change the fact that he did. "I was your only friend" syndrome taken to extreme.

THE LOVE IS RETURNED. 500 MILLION TIMES FOLD ;) <3

Eduardo will drop everything and it will be too late.

abhvaasgbfg.

Probably gonna have to go lick my wounds for a bit now, though. Fsssssng. Heartbreak.

Re: FILL - Someday you’ll feel differently about this 3/3
