Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

“Can you look at me, Mark?”

He feels terrible for even that edge of irritation when Mark does, knowing it came through his voice and knowing he has no right to it. Nothing’s changed except what he knows, and what he knows is that Mark is in love with someone he has no chance with. With himself, with Eduardo, and this is probably sweeter than he treats anyone, then. This is probably the most trust and affection anyone has ever gotten.

Because Mark would never let another person see his eyes like this, the tightness in his expression making them look darker and more upset than Eduardo’s ever seen them.

“I’m always right.”

Mark says it unironically, as though it were fact, and if it weren’t for the sad attempt at a smile he pairs the words with, Eduardo would probably scoff at his overconfidence.

As it is, Eduardo just stares into the helplessly stricken face of his best friend and nods, solemnly, once and then twice, not trying to stop Mark when he spins back around.

“I…I’ll go now, Mark. But only into the living room. If you want to talk some more later, Chris and Dustin are planning on heading to the bar at ten…”

Mark nods tersely, every part of him tense as he keeps his back to Eduardo. Eduardo knows without a doubt that there’ll be no more discussion of this. Probably never, for as long as they’re friends (which, regardless of this revelation, will still be for a long, long time, Eduardo hopes).

He nods toward the spaghetti.

“Eat, Mark. Please.”

And walks out of Mark’s bedroom, closing the door quietly behind him.

Even when he realizes he’s left his Econ book on Mark’s bed, he just continues over to the couch, smiling faintly at Dustin’s usual obnoxious greeting and losing his thoughts in the mindless television Chris has on for the background white noise while he studies.

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

Ok, so I'm going to try and be as eloquent and poetic and sweet as you are in your comments, but I just have to get something out of the way first:

ARTRRGRGHHHGHG THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR MY ALREADY OVERFLOWING HEART WHYYYYSHJ WARDO WHY??

Ok. I'm over it. Kind of.

So yeah, this is amazing. Your Mark is...stunning. I have such a major soft spot for him, both the Social Network/Jesse Eisenberg presentation of him and the real guy, so this fill genuinly filled me with emotions that I am a little embarrassed to talk about. I just want to give him a hug, maybe run my hand through his lovely curls and tell him that it is going to be alright. I adore how vulnerable Mark is here and yet how much he tries to hide it, as though he isn't sure at all how to BE vulnerable. Or as if he's scared to be. And how desperately he tries to hide it from Eduardo, ugh. It's heartbreaking.

It was this line that did it:

“You’re being you, Wardo, and you don’t even know what you. Ugh, I love you enough without you touching me so much, being so damn confusing and gentle and everything I just can’t—”

I love you enough without you touching me.

I LOVE YOU ENOUGH WITHOUT YOU TOUCHING ME.

Legitimately may have made a small whimpering sound when I read that line. If possible, I fell even more in love with him purely because of that line, how painful it is, how openly honest he is FOR ONCE and how uncomfortable he is with that. Argh. I just want to live in a cottage in a forest with him and like, I don't know, go on long rambling walks with him or something, which is insane because this is a fictional version of him but WHATEVER, I COULD LOOK AFTER HIM.

Do you see what you're doing to me? DO YOU SEE? My level of coherency has dropped to about minus forty and now I'm picking out what colour curtains me and your Mark would have when we live together and I take care of him after Eduardo turned him down.

I should be banned from the internet.

The eloquence and poetry did not appear, as you have probably ascertained by now.

But you. You are good. Like, really good. The way you put lines together, and your ideas and, just, wow. Go away. You're ruining me. EXCEPT DON'T GO AWAY, NEVER LEAVE.

<3 <3 <3 <3

P.S. I read Lela's fill for this and I don't even know why I didn't comment on it. I think I was hurting too much. THANKS FOR THAT LELA xxx

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

You're welcome.

But if my fill reduced to you to hurting too much, what has Andrea's fill done to you? 'Cause hers was more emotional than mine or I don't know we had different descriptions and ways of showing Mark's emotions and we characterized Eduardo differently.

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

I'm just going to cut in here: I think you're right when you say her fill was different from yours because of the different descriptions and characterizations, mostly because your fill was Mark-centric and hers had a lot more focus on Eduardo. But I loved both and thought they were both emotional and very sad in their own ways.

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

Thanks again.

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

I agree with OP, Lela: your fill focused more on Mark's reactions and mine focused more on Eduardo's reactions. I think I find it easier to write Mark's reactions as they're seen and not as they're felt, so you took a chance with the opposite and it paid off! :DDDD

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

B'aw, sweetheart, you don't need to change your comments at all to match mine, yours are LOVELY. :DDDD

:snickering: Yeah, I do that too!

Thank you! I really wanted to fit my Mark into canon, make you ache for him and want to pet him after Eduardo rejects him, make you look at Jesse's Mark and remember all the sad that was in his eyes sometimes, wonder what that sadness could mean! ;)

AND OBVIOUSLY YOU DID, SINCE YOU NOW WANT TO TAKE CARE OF HIM AND BUY CURTAINS AND STUFFS.

Oh, and yes, that's exactly how I'd put it. Mark isn't exactly sure if he can be or wants to be vulnerable, and he definitely doesn't want to show Wardo he is. It's hard enough to love somebody without them knowing it and taking care to make sure that they both keep you at a distance and make you feel better about it, all the time (I've been on both sides of that, so I know).

THANK YOU! I LOVE THAT YOU LOVE THAT LINE. IT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITES: I THINK WARDO GENUINELY IS SO SWEET AND ATTENTIVE TO MARK THAT HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE TO BE FLIRTY OR NAKED FOR MARK TO FALL FOR HIM, AND I WANTED THAT TO COME ACROSS. :DDD

FOR THE RECORD. IF MY MARK WERE REAL YOU COULD TOTALLY TAKE HIM TO A COTTAGE (AS LONG AS IT HAD WI-FI OR HE WOULD GO NUTS WITH WITHDRAWAL) AND GO ON LONG WALKS WITH HIM (AS LONG AS HE WAS ALLOWED TO TAKE HIS CELL WITH) AND HE PROBABLY WOULD NOT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT CURTAINS. THEY COULD BE THE SAME FLEECE AS HIS HOODIE FOR ALL HE CARES. xDDD.

YES I SEE. It's fucking glorious, doing that to such a freaking genius! And your coherence level is fine, you dork. :P

There is totally eloquence and poetry in this comment.

YOU SHOULD NEVER BE BANNED FROM THE INTERNET. AND I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU I PROMISE. :clings:

(Also, I am laughing really hard at GO AWAY. YOU'RE RUINING ME. You are too fucking adorable and funny. ♥)

:MUAH: ♥♥♥♥

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

Andrea, woman are you seriously trying to hurt me? Wait, don't answer that. It was a rhetorical question.

Gosh, what can I say about this? So much man, just let me try to form words and thoughts into the right combinations.

*breath* Right, so first off let me tell you that I'm honored that you dedicated this to little ole me. :)

Uh, second and so forth.

I just honestly loved this fill of yours. It's so brilliant. Your Mark is very great. He's characterized as vulnerable yet trying so hard to hold back his feelings. He doesn't understand his feelings and he never wanted, never wanted to feel this way and yet he does. It's painful reading line after line. I also can't forget the frustration and even anger that Mark displayed. It was fitting.

Next: your Eduardo, aww. His reactions were really fleshed out (um, unlike mine). He's understanding and wonderful, but he doesn't feel the same way. The way that you wrote and described the angst..I really felt them, and that is why that I have to tell you my dear that I both admire you as a person and respect you as a writer so much.

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

Absolutely, woman! I am sharpening my metaphorical knife for the next time I bury it into your breast right now, even. ;)

Thank you, thank you!

:hugs: Of course it was! You inspired me, darling!

B'aww, thank you, sweetheart. Like I said above, I think it's a lot easier to write Mark's reactions from somebody else's perspective, where they're not completely understood (at first or at all), and I really like writing him that way. Plus, I think I've told you this -- I have extensive experience with both sides of this particular situation and anger, frustration, blaming the object of your affections, feelings you don't want or understand...all par for the course. (Poor Mark.) :/

Well, it is from Eduardo's point of view? (And hey, you learned from it, didn't ya? :)) So yeah, I fleshed out Eduardo 'cause I've been there. And I feel like Eduardo is the kind of person who doesn't see it coming and feels more pain for Mark than discomfort for himself. So I tried to bring that out in the fic, that Eduardo is understanding and a little upset for Mark's sake, but that he makes sure that Mark knows how he feels so there's no confusion (because confusion will only ever hurt in this case).

B'awww. Thank you! :DDDD

You're far too kind and you know I feel the same way! ♥

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

This was really good and I loved it! The drama was really well done, and I loved the way that this was in Eduardo's POV, because now I have a Mark POV story and an Eduardo POV story and I could not be happier about it! Mark broke my heart, and so did Eduardo's reactions. I adored the fact that there's inevitably a difference in what Mark and Eduardo feel, because Mark is in love with Eduardo, but Eduardo loved Mark but really doesn't even have the ability to be in love with him. It's all very sad, and, just like leladancer's fic got the feeling of being hopelessly in love with somebody who will never love you the way you love them down, your fic got the feeling of somebody loving you in a way that is impossible to return.

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

Hiiiii, OP! :DDDD

Thank you so much! I really try to do drama in a way that it's not overly dramatic, and I felt like the best way to do that here (as well as what fit my style best) was the situation according to Eduardo, so I really, really am so happy you enjoyed that part of it!

Mark was going for that, jsyk. ;)

And Eduardo, yeah. I've been Eduardo and when you're in that situation, there's no right way to act, no words you can say that will balm the sting of the rejection. But I think he did his best, and that's what I wanted to show, that he genuinely feels something for Mark, but not the something Mark feels. Because sometimes it's really that simple -- you just look at a person and cannot even imagine them in that way, never even had or wanted to think of yourself with them, and sexuality does that very easily, too, and for all Eduardo's care-taking and primping ways, he could definitely be taken as a straight boy. :/

Yes, Lela and I did two sides of the same coin, I think, and lucky you, getting both points of view! And I'm so honored that you thought this was worthy of your fabulous prompt! ♥

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

(Anonymous)
It's definitely wasn't a good idea to put on sad music once I read the prompt.

MY HEART IS IN GREAT PAIN. I just, it's the first time I've honestly felt sosososo BAD for Mark in any fic.He actually conveys so much emotion and I really felt it, especially with the shuddering shoulders and such. I guess I connect to him in some profound homosexual way. xD

And Eduardo, he handled it very well, he didn't deserve as much stinging words and general disdain. HE'S SORRY MARK, HE JUST DOESN'T SWING THAT WAY. Eduardo feels just as bad too, and that's what gets me.
He can hear it, the waver in Mark’s voice that shows itself for the first time since Eduardo’s known him, and wonders if Mark feels this way, this clench of his lungs and dryness of his mouth, all those times he says things that hurt people, without meaning to. Maybe it’s only because he does care so deeply about Mark that it pains him so much.
JUST I CANNOT CONTAIN MY ABSOLUTE LOVE FOR YOUR FICS.

You are worthy for any project, I think. (: <333
I also apologize that my comments are so disjointed and weird.

BUT I ALSO LOVE THAT EDUARDO REMINDED HIM TO EAT ONCE HE LEFT, RIPPED MY HEART OUT.
In a good way, bahaha. Eduardo was willing to sacrifice himself to maintain the relationship with Mark that he had before and HE IS SO HONORABLE AND GENUINE I LOVE HIM. What an amazing man. Just, dnogwrnohne3thjpetj.

I like the word just.
Okay done.
I love you. <3

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

Yeah, I could have warned ya off that. :P

:HUGGLES YOUR PAIN AWAY BUT SMILES BECAUSE MY WRITING WORKED:

It's not the first time for me, but I think I really identify with him here, so I know exactly what you mean, bb. He really, really needs a hug and from somebody he's mutually in love with, and Eduardo...Eduardo can't be that person.

Oh, Mark does that incessantly, actually, all that emotion he conveys here. I wrote him how I see him in the movie, and in the movie, he does a lot of that. Minute face and body twitches or movements that show what he's really feeling, things you'll blink and miss. ;)

THAT'S TRUE, HE DID, BUT BLAMING THE OBJECT OF YOUR AFFECTIONS IS A VERY COMMON PART OF A ONE-SIDED LOVE AFFAIR. MARK KNOWS HE'S SORRY, WHICH IS WHY HE DIDN'T WANNA HAVE THE CONVERSATION. EDUARDO DOESN'T DESERVE TO GET HURT BY MARK'S BITTERNESS JUST FOR BEING SO WONDERFUL THAT MARK FELL FOR HIM. :/

B'AWWW. BABY GIRL YOU KNOW I ADORE YOU, AND THANK YOU!!!!

You are adorable and sweet and thank you so much! (IF ONLY WOULD BELIEVE THE SAME. :P)

Disjointed and weird comments indicate a lot of thought, I think, so no apology necessary. ALSO. ANY COMMENT FROM YOU IS LOVELY.

Well, that's a part of Eduardo that just IS. It's always there, in canon, in fanon -- Eduardo taking care of Mark, no matter what it might say to him or anybody else. :)

BUT I AM GLAD IT RIPPED YOUR HEART OUT BECAUSE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO. REMIND YOU THAT JUST 'CAUSE HE DOES NOT WANT TO KISS MARK OR BEND HIM OVER THE COUCH DOES NOT MEAN HE DOES NOT CARE FOR HIM. Lovely, lovely honorable and genuine man, that's damn right. I wanted that to come across -- that Eduardo feels for Mark, is upset about the fact that he can't return his feelings, but knows he can't. HE IS AMAZING THOUGH, THANK YOU FOR NOTICING. ^^

Baha, I see this, and do not oppose it.

I love you too, boo! ♥

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

FUCKING UST. IT MAKETH ME DIE. SLOW.

You got me by this little detail He taps the keys in his hand on the bowl of spaghetti he made for Mark to eat (with just enough sauce to coat the pasta, never enough to choke Mark if he doesn’t pay enough attention to chewing it) and Mark looks up as if he’s just realized there’s another presence in his bedroom. Well you already have me but YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN BB.

I know it's been said but:

I love you enough without you touching me

If I knew how to make font increase I would. SO IMAGINE IT.

Also seconding that Wardo reminded him to it. YOU KILL ME SOFTLY WITH YOUR SONG WONDERFUL WORDS. LIKE HO SHIT.

It's not that Wardo doesn't love him but it's not in ~that way and that burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrns like a mofo.

Plus he's in the living room. SO CLOSE YET SO FAR. YOU SLAY ME.

Read it again and I have to say it is somehow worse that Eduardo says if it would be anyone it would be Mark. BECAUSE IT ISN'T. GDI. Unrequited fics can be worse than death fics sometimes. He can have it. In another world but not this one. Ow ow ow.

Thanks for writing and sharing. ILU <3

Re: Second Fill: I'm Always Right (5/5)

SLOW DEATHS ARE MASOCHISTIC THOUGH, AND AREN'T YOU, BABE? ;)

OF COURSE I DO AND I AM ALWAYS, ALWAYS GRATEFUL AND GLAD TO HAVE YOU. (I loved that line, too, by the way! AND IF ANYBODY WHO IS STALKING THIS CONVERSATION IS WONDERING, THE KEYS ARE ROOM/SUITE KEYS. JUST FYI.)

Um. You do this < small > or < big > and the < / small > or < / big > afterward. BUT I WILL IMAGINE IT FOR NOW, MY LOVE, AND I AM SO HAPPY YOU LIKED THAT LINE. I FEEL THAT REALLY PUTS INTO PERSPECTIVE HOW MARK FALLS IN LOVE. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE FLIRTING. IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE ROSES AND CHOCOLATES. JUST WARDO BEING WARDO IS ENOUGH FOR HIM TO GO HEAD OVER HEELS. :DDD

Yes! Wardo reminding him to eat, as Charlotte said: all this understanding and sweetness and still being Wardo, regardless of what just occurred between them. Because I feel like Eduardo would do that, y'know?

HONORED TO KILL YOU SOFTLY WITH ANYTHING, CASE. ALWAYS ALWAYS.

Yes! Yes, it is supposed to burn, and he is supposed to be close yet far (OOH CKY SONG, JUST HAD TO SAY THAT), so that metaphorically and literally he is both where Mark wants him and not. ;)

And he is where he wants to be, which is with Mark, no matter what. Best friends are like that, I think.

YES OH MY GOD YES. IT ABSOLUTELY IS. This part I have not been on the end of, but yeah, okay, if it's you, you can get over it faster. If it's your entire gender, you'll always wonder. If you were the other gender, if you were a nicer looking member of your gender, if you were more like the other one, would that change things? :/

THE WHAT IFS WILL TORTURE MARK. BUT EDUARDO DOESN'T KNOW THAT.

Absolutely, love. Definitely can be. I know feeling it can be that bad (no hyperbole there, seriously it can), so reading it when you can identify (or writing it then) can hurt worse.

THANKFULLY THERE WILL ALWAYS BE ANOTHER STORY TO HEAL OUR WOUNDS. TOO BAD MARK WON'T GET THAT REPRIEVE HERE. :cuddles him:

:brings you into the fold and cuddles YOU: GLAD YOU OWED.

I LOVE YOU TOO CASE. :HOLDS YOU TIGHT: ♥
