Secret marraige! Mark/Eduardo

(Anonymous)
So I really, really want a piece where Mark/Eduardo were married before the depositions, but both decided to keep it quiet through the whole ordeal. But now, years later, Eduardo decides it's time for the divorce only:
First time the papers are sent back to him torn up
The second Mark does something to his lawyer's computer (IDK, whatever)
And the third time Mark posts that they're married on fb (hacks into Eduardo's account and won't let him change it) and says something like he wants to fix their relationship.
(or you can change the ideas)

Somehow Eduardo is convinced to go to Palo Alto but I'd love to see angry Eduardo but with happy ending please :D

Fill: Marriage is Just Another Word for Mistake (1/3)

(Anonymous)
Okay, the gay marriage in Vegas stuff is not true to reality because that wasn't an option at the time period in question. The publishing date of Ben Mezrich's Bringing Down the House does actually work with the timeline though. I've never read it, never been to Vegas, never counted cards, all my knowledge comes from watching 21.


It started with a stupid book, evolved into an extremely profitable but even stupider idea, and led to the stupidest decision that Eduardo ever made and that included signing away his Facebook shares.

Eduardo is sure that Mark probably wished that he had bankrupted the author by suing him for emotional distress afterwards. Unfortunately for everyone involved, he did not.

It was Dustin's fault; anyway, because he was the one to read the book, and he said "let's learn how to count cards."

No one would have taken him seriously if that hadn't been the evening where they had run out of beer and beer money. So they did start counting cards, just to see if they could.

Unsurprisingly, Mark was really good. Surprisingly, Eduardo was even better. Mark had a slightly better poker face though but he didn't do well with pressure. Chris was hopeless, Dustin was adequate.

It didn't take long to come up with a system: Chris became the look-out, Dustin and Mark played straight and Eduardo would win. They used Billy's pot money and some of Eduardo's cash for a trip to Vegas and then everything just went wrong.

First Dustin behaved like a Japanese Tourist on an Eiffel Tower tour, then Chris flirted with the receptionist, the bellhop, the bartender, and a security guard in the space of less than fifteen minutes, Mark started to calculate the probability of the slot machines, and Dustin bought enough booze with his fake ID to poison a small herd of elephants.

The good news was that when they finally made it to the Blackjack tables, they won twenty-thousand dollars before Chris signaled them that security was on the way.

The bad news was that after that they got so rip-roaringly drunk that they didn't count their tab (two-thousand dollars), Dustin didn't count the chips he gave to the strippers (ten-thousand, give or take), Chris' hotel stuff hook-up disappeared with some of their money (he probably thought it was his tip), and no one even noticed or cared when Mark and Eduardo slipped out to discover the attractions of Las Vegas at night.

Somehow they ended up in the Elvis wedding chapel. Somehow leaving it without experiencing a wedding first hand seemed... like missing out. It made sense at the time. Eduardo had only blurry memory of the ceremony, but even years later hearing Love Me Tender gave him flashbacks to champagne bubbling up his throat like really expensive vomit, making him feel woozy and faint.

That was Saturday.

So on Sunday, they had the hangover from hell, one hell of tab to settle with the hotel, Eduardo and Mark found a marriage certificate that declared them husband and husband, and they had about 400 dollars left. They gave it to Billy to buy pot for them all.

Eduardo was the one to keep the certificate. He wasn't sure if it was legal and he didn't dare to research it to find out but he figured that it was better to be safe than sorry.

Mark never mentioned it. Not when they founded Facebook, not when he diluted Eduardo's shares, not during the depositions. Never. So Eduardo never mentioned it either.

*

At the age of 29, Eduardo Saverin became engaged to a lovely young woman. Eduardo was not above perjury when it came to defining his possible marital status but he drew the line at potential bigamy. So he hired a lawyer, who first raised his brows and then heard the sweet sound of a potential multi-billion divorce settlement.

"No pre-nup?" he had asked, his voice rising while his expression began to resembled that of an excited puppy.

Eduardo waved him off. He didn't want money, alimony, or half of Mark's Facebook shares. He just wanted a divorce.

The lawyer's face fell. The excited little puppy turned into a big, old dog about to be castrated and then put to sleep.

But Eduardo got his divorce papers and mailed them to Mark, relieved to finally close the door on an old mistake.

(Anonymous)
He didn't hear anything from Mark for three weeks. And just when he was about thinking to contact him in some way he got the papers back – carefully torn apart by hand into little confetti sized bits.

At least that made clear what had taken Mark so long.

*

He tried again. But unfortunately while his lawyer worked on the new papers, someone hacked their servers and deleted everything they ever put into a computer, including their own phone numbers.

After that, his lawyer quit.

*

It took him awhile to find a new one. Especially since the need for a divorce had disappeared when he told his fiancée that a spring, summer and probably even winter wedding was out of the question. She broke up with him after that.

But then he got an invitation to a Facebook shareholders meeting. It was reason and opportunity enough to finally get a new lawyer and new divorce papers to give to Mark in person.

It was a great plan, which got derailed the second his plane landed. Because none other than Mark was waiting for him at the airport.

"I heard you wanted a divorce." Mark asked, not even bothered with a greeting.

Eduardo nodded, not trusting himself to reply, especially since Mark's voice was fairly loud and a mother of three had turned around at the word divorce.

"Well, I don't," Mark said.

Eduardo blinked at him, dumbstruck. While tearing up the divorce papers had been weird, Eduardo had believed Mark just wanted to be an asshole about the whole thing. This here, was a mystifying turn of events.

Mark grabbed the edge of Eduardo's coat sleeve and dragged him to the exit and into his moderately-sized car.

Once they were inside, Eduardo found his voice again:

"But... why?" he stuttered helplessly.

Mark stared at the traffic through the windshield with extreme concentration, if not outright prejudice, then checked car's controls, the car radio (which wasn't even on), then again stared at the traffic.

Finally he said: "I think it's utterly inconvenient for you to live in Singapore. You should move."

"What? Why?" Eduardo was experiencing a déjà vu of sorts with his responses to Mark's refusals to answer his questions.

"The Bay Area is really the place for app developers. After all, most the big tech companies are here."

It was high-handed even for Mark.

"Could you not criticize my approach to my work?" Eduardo said, pissed-off. He should have expected this, really.

Mark continued as if he hadn't even heard Eduardo. But his voice went a pitch higher as if he was failing to mask his nervousness.

"The company you co-founded is here - not mention the person you asked to marry you nine years ago."

Eduardo opened his mouth. Then closed it. Then opened it again.

Mark was still staring ahead, as if the evil glares that he shot in the direction of the other cars would make them move faster.

"I did it on a lark," Eduardo finally said, lamely. "I didn't really to expect you to say yes."

"So you kissed me 'on a lark' -"here Mark made actual quotation marks in the air – "too?"

"That was college! You experiment."

"You call a year full of hook-ups after we got married 'experimenting'?

This time Mark didn't even have to make finger quotation marks.

Eduardo's response sounded weak, even to himself. "Uhm... yes?"

Mark shot him a look, the first one since they got in the car. It was focused, like a laser and Eduardo got instantly hot under his collar. He felt his ears go red.

"You're lying," Mark said.

Eduardo hated how Mark always put him on the defensive.

"You cheated on me with Erica, so it probably never mattered to you either."

"That was a mistake," Mark mumbled, eyes back on the traffic.

Eduardo found his footing again: "This marriage was a mistake."

The car came to a sudden stop. Behind them several cars began to honk. In the car it was silent.

"It wasn't," Mark said quietly as he started the car again. "We might have made a lot of mistakes... I might have made a lot of mistakes but getting married isn't one of them."

Eduardo didn't say anything.

"I'm sorry about Erica," Mark continued. "She was... I was just trying to prove... she never mattered like you did."

"And I never mattered like Facebook did." Eduardo didn't even need to make that a question, he already had his answer.

"You did. You mattered. Facebook mattered."

Mark went silent again. He had parked the car in a suburban neighborhood, in front of normal house with a well-kept lawn, missing only the white picket fence to add to its perfect middle-class mediocrity.

"It just seemed that nothing mattered to you," Mark said. Then he pointed at the house. "That's my home, by the way."

He looked at Eduardo again, his eyes soft. Vulnerable. Hopeful.

"It's yours, too, Wardo."

Eduardo knew that he had booked a hotel room. He knew that he could ask Mark to drive him to the hotel, he knew he would. He knew if he did, Mark would sign the papers. Perhaps not immediately but soon afterwards.

He knew this while he got out of the car. He knew this while he grabbed his bag. He knew this while he climbed the steps to the door of Mark's house. To what Mark had called their home.

He knew that he was probably making a mistake, that there was no way this could not be a mistake. He knew that the definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again, hoping for a different result.

He knew and it made it no difference. It was Mark. It always had been - it always would be. In good times, and in bad times, for better, and for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness, and in health, it would always be Mark who would be worth making a mistake for.

The last line is just beautiful. And I like that Eduardo and Mark have both made mistakes, both hurt each other, and can now forgive and start again.
