THE SOCIAL NETWORK KINK MEME


ASK THE MODS * FAQ * DISCUSSION * RESEARCH * FILL LIST * PART ONE * PART ONE (OVERFLOW) * PART TWO * PART TWO (OVERFLOW) * PART THREE * (PART THREE (OVERFLOW) * PART FOUR * PART FIVE * PART SIX


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.
♥ long and short fics welcome. multiple responses encouraged!
♥ please try to refrain from saying 'seconded!' as much as possible.
♥ on RPF: Please disclaim that it is RPF, a work of fiction and in no way related to the actual actors/persons/etc. (i wouldn't even try and discourage RPF from this meme ;))
WARN FOR COMMON TRIGGERS, PLEASE




FORMAT OF PROMPTS;


♥ alphabetize pairings/threesomes/moresomes. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark/Sean etc.)
♥ put [RPF] before RPF prompts. (e.g. [RPF] Andrew/Jesse)
♥ for crossover prompts: "[Crossover], The Social Network Character(s)/Other Character(s), [Fandom]" (e.g. [Crossover], Eduardo/Columbus, [Zombieland])
♥ no "!" in pairings, only in descriptions. (e.g. Eduardo/Mark, FacebookCreator!Eduardo, CFO!Mark)
♥ anyone, everyone, no one? Use "Other." (e.g. Sean/Other)
♥ put [GEN] before GEN prompts.




FILLS;


♥ please don't embed. link to images/videos.
♥ no locked material. this includes communities, even if membership is open.
♥ fills can be posted anonymously or not.
♥ fills can be anything: fic, art, vid, fanmix, podfic, etc.
♥ all prompts are open to fills at all times, even if they have been filled in the past or are being currently filled by someone else. multiple fills are positively encouraged; if something appeals to you then do not be put off creating a new fill by the existence of a prior one.
NEW: ♥ PLEASE comment with the first of your fill to the PROMPT and then all future updates as a comment to the FIRST PART of the fill. this makes it easier for both the WIP spreadhseet and for archiving stuff on delicious. it also helps people who are trying to catch up on updates and don't have to look through every fill on the prompt (should it have more than one). thank you.

Eduardo/Mark

Here's the thing no one talks about Mark had every right to be mad at Eduardo. He was a horrible CFO that wouldn't listen and make good decisions and then he turned around and sued Mark. The worst thing though was he couldn't let Mark go. He would leave messages on Mark's phone begging and pleading asking how to make things better, how can they be friends again because Mark was Eduardo's best friend, only true friend. He wouldn't stop, he just leave these messages and it broke Mark until he could feel tears running down his face listening. Mark knew he was right that doesn't mean it didn't kill him along the way

Hey, I wonder if you still want this? It's just that your prompt hadn't left me and I began writing something, about 400 words (more than a week and half ago) and I'm hoping I can get it posted by the end of Monday. In the mean time, going anon because I don't want to disappoint anyone.

JFC yes anon anything you want!

FILL: Pieces of You I Kept (1/2)

(Anonymous)
Mark reaches for his cell, dialing the familiar number of his voicemail.

You have 12 saved messages.


Saved message

“Please pick up your cell. I know that you saw the ringing. Why aren’t you picking up? I have to leave this message. Otherwise, it’ll be like I was never here.”

--
It always starts the same: Eduardo’s voice tired and desperate, demanding to know why he isn’t returning his calls.

Saved message


“Come on. Answer. I was angry, all right? I was furious actually, but we can’t end like this. I was just hurt that I couldn’t see straight. I don’t think I’ve ever been that angry before and I reacted. I’m sorry about your laptop. I’ll get you a new one. You’d like that. Pick up.”

--
He explains his side and Mark listens. Time does that to some, making them truly hears things that are said the way they were meant to be heard. Life would be simple if in that moment, Mark understood what Eduardo felt.

Saved message


“We said things that we didn’t mean. People do that, but they also make up.”
--
There’s more persuasion and bargaining on Eduardo’s end, but Mark’s still silently furious, nothing to show for it except the angry clacking of his fingers with his computer opened in front of him. His best friend and CFO failed to deliver big investors. He failed to be there when Mark had repeatedly asked him to come to California. Their company was located in Palo Alto. He told Wardo, ‘I want—want no, I need you.’ Eduardo kept ignoring his calls and texts, and it became apparent that their vision for Facebook greatly differed from one another’s.

Wardo didn’t understand the main reason of why Mark built Facebook. It wasn’t about getting laid or saying, fuck you to every Harvard Final Club in existence, not entirely. His social network would change the world, society as they knew it. Facebook would connect people, and Sean saw some of that potential, the material gain from it anyway.

Wardo only saw the opportunity to finally make his father proud. When Mark really considers it, who used who?

Saved message


“You know the first time that I met you I couldn’t get over how brilliant you were? Like I knew, you’d changed the world and it’s weird saying that because eventually we became best friends but I thought it. Your blue eyes were sharp and they focused on me. That’s what I remember.”
--
He remembers ridiculous dark hair and gentle, brown eyes, of wanting to know this person’s name. He didn’t seem real and Mark couldn’t shake him out of his interest. It was absurd.

Saved message


“Your message set up keeps cutting me off. It sucks. Didn’t I tell you to reset that up months ago? What if someone needs that space, like your poor mother? And you still haven’t. Typical. You should do that.”

Saved message


“It’s me. Maybe I’ve finally run out of words. If you were here, you probably wouldn’t believe that. Usually, we both know I never run out of things to say. I have to make conversation or sometimes I can’t resist filling the silences. You code.”

FILL: Pieces of You I Kept (2/2)

Saved message


“All those times the four of us: you, me, Dustin, and Chris watched movies and played video games in Kirkland, was probably the first time that I felt like I belonged. You guys were like my family.

You were different though. In another way, I wanted to keep you.”

--
Mark thinks he wouldn’t have argued with the last statement.

Saved message


“When I felt us slipping, I obsessed over discovering the exact point where we became distant, like finding the point would make a difference. I know we didn’t see to eye to eye on Facebook, but I was doing the best I could. You have to know that.”
--
He believes Eduardo’s words, but frankly wishes that they were enough.

Saved message


“That day that I was in the office, you looked back at me with your dimples showing, you said, ‘But you have to come back for the party Thiel’s going to throw us, when we hit a million members.’ Mark, I wouldn’t have missed it. And what did you do?”

--
The surprise and the shock of Eduardo’s violent anger—Mark couldn’t process the scene at the time. He had to defend himself against his accusations. He was justified and yet his own arguments appeared weak aloud.

Mark wanted to viciously throw that question back at Eduardo’s face: And what did you do?

Eduardo froze the accounts and jeopardized Facebook’s future. Mark couldn’t have that even if it meant cutting out Wardo’s shares and place in the company. Wardo’s behavior proved that he didn’t care about Mark. He didn’t realize how important Facebook was, how important it could be. He threw the first shot. Mark only finished the score.

Saved message


“I know it’d be easy to say that I hate you now, but I can’t even bring myself to feel that. I want to hold on to the anger and the betrayal so badly, lash out like I did with the laptop smashing, but then where will that leave me?

“I think, Mark, I might’ve been in love with you. You’re an idiot. Maybe I’m the biggest one of all.”


--
Mark didn’t hate Wardo either. He wouldn’t have been able to.

Saved message


“Call me back. I know we can work through this. I don’t care about the dilutions. They aren’t important as making us all right. You’re my best friend, my only true friend. I can’t lose you. I’ll do anything, please.”

Saved message


“Mark...”

End of messages

--

Abruptly, other pressing emotions threaten to dominate Mark’s brain despite his previous, careful control. There’s a tension in his chest, an enormous ache spreading over his body and feelings he tried not to experience overwhelm him. It is not until his sight is blurry and the strength of ignoring the loss of someone he loved becomes too great that he senses the presence of tears trailing from his face. He touches the tear drops with his fingertips and somehow, the act causes everything to be real.

He’s twenty three and the year is 2007. Mark reasons, ‘I did what was necessary, but that didn’t mean it didn’t kill me along the way. All I have left of you are your messages and our tainted memories.’

Wardo…

you're the author! i loved it the end was well played. the way you could explain both sides yet make mark's the central focus and main point ugh well done.

Re: FILL: Pieces of You I Kept (2/2)

Hey, anon,

Yeah I'm the author. Um, apparently I failed at anon-ing continuously. Oh well. Were you surprised or expecting me? Idk. I wondered. :)

Your comment warmed me especially. You picked up the multiple points of view but still stuck by the main one. Thank you so much for reading, liking and posting your thoughts!
