Eduardo/Mark, Eduardo in a coma

(Anonymous)
Basically, Eduardo gets into an accident and ends up in a coma. When Mark hears about it, he can't help but visit Eduardo everyday.

At first he justs reads Eduardo books but eventually he talks to coma'd!Wardo. He starts to reflect about their relationship, how he screwed up, how everything has affected him, how he misses Wardo and confesses his true feelings to him knowing that it's uncertain that Wardo will be waking up and the possibility of losing him forever dawns on him. Or something to the effect.

Oh and Wardo waking up and happy ending preferred.

I NEED more pining!Mark in my life

It’s the day of the quarterly shareholders meetings, the second one of the year. Three months ago Mark had promised them something big to be unveiled at the next meeting, a new development that would revolutionize Facebook yet again and would further tighten its strangle-hold on the social networking phenomenon.

Mark is relaxed, unfazed as he codes in the final touches. With a Mountain Dew by his side and a soft hum as his fingers are engaged in a symphony of keystrokes. He’s in his element; a confident thought wanders in his mind that in a few hours from now, the media would once again be singing his praises. That Mark Zuckerberg, will his genius ever stop. He doesn’t even realize he gives a self-satisfied smirk.

He gets lost in a momentary reverie of code. He’s almost there, just a few more lines to go. He could almost taste it. Then before it hits him, his typing comes to a halt and suddenly he feels naked. Someone had just removed his headphones, and the first thing that pops into his mind is to fire whichever asshole that did it. And then he sees Chris.

“Mark”

It takes him exactly four seconds to register the sombre tone in Chris’ voice and the solemn manner of his expression. It takes him another two seconds, to convince himself not to fire Chris.

“What is it?”, Mark says and before Chris gets to reply there’s a million different things that’s gone wrong echoing in his brain.

There’s a problem with the server and they won’t be able to reveal the new feature today, or someone’s leaked the information for our new development, or most likely Sean’s gotten himself into a shitload of trouble once again and this gonna be a fucking PR nightmare.

“Uhm...”

Uhm? That is not part of the Chris Hughes vocabulary. Chris never stalls, just tells him straight up what ever the problem is. It’s why Mark’s kept him on board all this time, when it comes to business Chris is always professional and gets right to the point. The only reason Dustin’s still around is because he’s a brilliant programmer in his own right and okay, Mark won’t tell you this but if pressed he might admit that he’s kinda fun to be around. Get Mark drunk enough and he’ll admit that he’s one of his closest friends and after what happened to Eduardo, Mark doesn’t really feel like losing any more of those. The fact that Chris feels it appropriate to stall the inevitable bad news gives Mark a horrible feeling that this is something really serious, and on this very day too. Just his luck.

He’s already mentally put on his boss cap and was preparing himself to handle whatever situation Chris has come to tell him. What comes out of Chris’ mouth, however, he was not prepared for.

“ Uh..It’s Eduardo. He’s been in an accident”

He’s Been in an Accident. Five words. Five words is all it takes for one of the smartest men in the world to have a mental shutdown. Mark’s face contorts into a shell-shocked stare.

Chris has seen him ruthlessly fire interns and immerse his whole self and more into perfecting code, and in all the years that he’s known him he has never shown such intense emotion as he is now. They’ve always joked around that Mark was a robot but those five words have made Mark emotionally naked, and it makes Chris heart break all the more to tell him.

“Is he..?” is all Mark can manage but Chris can fill in the blanks.

“No. But he’s not in good condition, that’s all they’ve told me. Dustin’s on the phone with the hospital right now and-”

“Cancel the meeting. Book me the next flight to Singapore.”

“But Mark-”

“Now Chris!”, Mark shouts, and Chris can feel the desperation in Mark’s raised voice and it pains him too.

“Mark. He’s HERE! Here in Palo Alto. He was gonna come this time. He was on his way here when-”

And before Chris’ words fully dawn on him, Mark is scrambling out the door and heading towards the exit. He passes Dustin, phone still glued to his ear, who mutters out a concerned “Dude, where you going?” and Chris manages to call out an “I’ll take care of the meeting, Mark” before he’s out of their vicinity. There’s a split-second when Mark’s becomes aware that his laptop is still sitting in his office with all his code unsaved. It’s the same amount of time Mark takes to start the ignition and drive like a madman to the hospital. For the first time since its inception, Facebook is going to have to take a backseat. Mark is not gonna lose Eduardo this time. Not for good.

(Anonymous)
A/N : This is my first fic ever (for any fandom), so please be gentle LOL. Also, non of this is medically or even entirely accurate so please be prepared to roll your eyes at how I handle the coma trope !



“Sir, I can’t let you see him, doctor’s orders”

The young receptionist is keeping a calm facade despite Mark’s incessant badgering. They’ve been arguing for what it seems to be a good twenty minutes and Mark is thisclose to giving up civilities and hacking into the hospital’s system right then and there to find Eduardo’s room instead.

“How much do you think this hospital is worth?”

“Sir, I don’t underst-”

“If I have to buy this whole hospital to find out, then I will. I just need to know where he is. Do you even know who I am?” Mark didn’t want to pull this card, but if it’s the only way he can see Eduardo then so be it.

“Sir, I know exactly who you are, but that doesn’t mean you get special privile-“

“What would it take for me, just to see my GODDAMN FRIEND?”

The last word echoes through the walls, as the people in triage eye him cautiously like a deranged madman is about to explode and really they’re not that far off.

“Mr. Zuckerberg, I really don’t think. I mean...only his family is allowed. I have to consult his doctor and..uh..I don’t think he’ll...”

Mark realizes that he’s startled the girl. Amy, he quickly looks at her nametag. He realizes that he’s made a scene but he doesn’t really care when he doesn’t even have any idea how bad Eduardo’s condition is. Mark has always been one to keep his emotions in check and the voice in the back of his mind is telling him not to do this, to keep cool and to keep control but the voice being overwhelmed by the drumbeat in his chest. He tries one more time and looks at her straight in the eye.

“Amy, please” he says, so softly that only she could hear it but loud enough that the meaning behind his words reverberate.
He knows she understands, if the softening in her eyes is any indication. But before she could give what Mark hopes is a go signal-

“Mark?”

A curious yet recognizable voice calls out his name. It’s familiar; the slight lilt of the accent is still there.

“Mrs. Saver..uh...Sandra”, Mark blurts out as he turns to face her.

“You’ve come to see Eduardo”, and as he utters an awkward affirmation it occurs to Mark how long he’s last seen her, talked to her. It’s been years. She looks as great as always, a little greyer in the hair, but still beautiful. She’s got the same expressive, brown eyes that Eduardo has, the same caring and affectionate gaze. Despite the crow’s feet that come with age, Mark still recognizes those qualities there, but it’s different somehow. Her eyes seem a little wearier, a little more resigned. He can’t quite make out the way she’s looking at him right now- it’s like she’s appraising him, but he’s certain that she knows why he’s here. She’s judging him, not maliciously, but cautiously. She’s a mother panda trying to protect her cub, judiciously weighing the options of how to proceed.

The whole room is quiet, in the moment that Sandra Saverin studies Mark, it feels like the just the two of them, making an unspoken agreement. After what seems like an eternity, Eduardo’s mother breaks their gaze, gives a curt smile and turns to Amy.

“It’s okay, he’s with me. Please give Mr. Zuckerberg access to my son’s room every time he comes to visit”, she says calmly and leads Mark down the corridor to the elevator. There’s a comfortable silence between them on the journey to Edaurdo’s room. Mark feels unabashedly grateful, even with everything that’s happened between him and her son, Mark still feels a relative ease with this woman.

When the elevator hits Eduardo’s floor, he realises that he never really considered how what he did affected her. Eduardo was his mother’s son. He was the son who never forgot to call home every week. The son who would tell her all about his new best friend and about the exciting new site they were building. The son who would turn to her for support when his heart had been broken by said best friend. Mark can’t imagine why this woman would let him back in just so easily. Mark wants to ask her why but before he ruminates any more, they’re at Eduardo’s door.

“Thank you” is all Mark can blurt out as she’s about to twist the handle.

“What for, dear?”

“For letting me be here”

and all she does in reply is smile.

“Why did you...?” Mark asks as she opens the door, but before he could finish he sees Eduardo.

There are bandages and scars. There are tubes that adorn his body. But Mark only sees Eduardo. He looks calm and peaceful and just so...just so Wardo. There’s something about seeing Eduardo physically that just hits Mark somewhere inside. Wardo. He doesn’t even notice that he’s at his bedside now, his hand on Eduardo’s. It’s Wardo.

“That’s why”, Sandra says through a smile, as she watches him from a corner.

A startled Mark pulls it away, a little bit embarrassed while Sandra continues.

“To be honest Mark, when I saw you today, I wanted to kill you.” When Mark’s eyes suddenly go wide, she lets out a little laugh.

“What you did to my son, I dunno. I don’t really want to talk about it. Frankly, I couldn’t even believe it. You two were so good together, I couldn’t understand. And when I saw you, I was ready to call security. But when I called out, and you turned and looked at me, I didn’t expect what I saw”

Mark can tell Sandra’s getting a little emotional now but she fiercely continues.

“Instead of that cold, calculating son of a bitch I hated what I saw instead was that young, awkward boy genius whom Eduardo took home once for spring break...only he’s not a boy anymore, but he’s more vulnerable than I’ve ever seen him before. I knew in my heart you were here for my Eduardo. I had to think long and hard about letting you come up here, Mark. You’ve hurt my baby, but maybe he isn’t the only the one that was hurt”.

She stops herself short of crying, Mark is debating on whether a comforting your ex-best friend’s mother is appropriate but decides in the end to just give her some space for now.

They end up sitting on opposite corners of Eduardo’s bedside in comfortable silence until Sandra falls asleep, which allows Mark to gaze lovingly and unashamedly at Eduardo. Taking in the boy he once knew so well.

It’s already time for dinner when Chris fills him in on the damage control he’s done and how he’s trying to keep the media away from the situation. Mark is out getting food, but he doesn’t exactly know what Sandra wants. In the end he settles for KFC.

He returns with a bucket, and she’s reading to Eduardo. “1984”, she says.

“His favorite.”

“Yeah , it is” she says as she lays it aside, and moves to the table. Eduardo’s room is pretty big, Mark now realises. It’s even got its own mini dining area by the side.

“Although I don’t think dystopian fiction is appropriate reading material for your comatose son”, Mark blurts out before he could bite his lip. Sandra gives a chuckle anyway.

“You didn’t know he was staying here in California now, did you?” she asks him.

“Sorry?”

“Yeah, his company’s been offering him a senior position here for over a year now, he finally accepted two weeks ago, I’m surprised he didn’t tell...” and she catches herself just in time and tries to make a quick recovery “...Chris and Dustin”.

“No..uh...he. No”

“Oh”, is all she can manage before they dig in.
Eduardo moved here is all Mark can think of. His mind racing as he ploughs through his chicken. Eduardo. Came out. To Palo Alto. And Mark’s struggling with all the implications of that. Which is all the harder, because Eduardo is in the room with him right now. Suddenly he feels a little overwhelmed. He came here.

Mark is so pre-occupied with his thoughts, it’s only when he finishes his last piece of chicken and notices the stack of bones he’s discarded that the irony of this situation manifests itself to him. Of course I got chicken. Eduardo and chicken, how fucking perfect is that?.

He brushes off the thought before quickly turning back to Sandra. “So how bad is it, exactly. Eduardo I mean, how long is he gonna be like this?”

Sandra doesn’t answer right away, deliberately choosing her words. “I really don’t know Mark. The doctors told me he could wake up tomorrow or next week or-...or...”, she curtails a sigh. “We must never lose hope Mark” she says and gives him a look that expresses everything clearer than any words can say.

Feeling a little braver, he takes her hand and comfortingly says “No, if I’ve learned anything, I know that Eduardo’s a fighter. He’ll wake up”,
He has to.

Chris and Dustin drop by after work. Apparently, Sandra had already approved them for visitation with Amy. She greets them amiably when they walk in and they easily fall into catching up. Mark knew Eduardo still kept in touch with Chris and Dustin after the lawsuit and the deposition, maybe because they weren’t assholes and had no problem apologizing to Eduardo. However, from the general tone of the conversations with his mother, it seems like they continued to be good friends after. And if that makes Mark a little jealous and hurt inside, well it’s been established that he’s not actually a robot and is allowed to feel that way. He excuses himself and heads out the door. Chris, ever the perceptive friend, notices Mark’s demeanor and does the same leaving Sandra and Dustin in a hearty conversation about baking (which it seems Dustin has recently taken to and is asking Sandra about her Brazil nut cookie recipe).

“So what’s up?” Chris asks just behind Mark.

Mark turns but says nothing in reply, levelling Chris with a blank stare instead.

“Okay, you don’t wanna talk about it. How’s Eduardo?”

“Did you know that Eduardo moved here?” Mark asks accusingly

“Mark..what?...yes, but how is Eduardo?”

“And you just didn’t care to tell me?”

“Mark!”

“He’s in a coma, what do you think? ” and really, Mark is just being petulant now

“Mark you being rude to me isn’t exactly helping the situation. You know you’re not the only one allowed to feel bad about Eduardo”

“Yes, because you’re his best friend now aren’t you? You and Dustin and Eduardo, all three of you are just thick as thieves.” Mark is practically yelling now

“MARK! Do you even hear yourself right now?”, Chris screams in return.
And with that, Mark sighs in defeat, realizing for the first time since slipping out that he’s in a hospital and may be disturbing other patients. Chris puts his hands on his shoulders, and says gently now “Yes. Me and Dustin keep up with Eduardo. Yes we know he moved out here a couple of weeks back. Believe me, Dustin was itching to tell you but Eduardo didn’t want you to know, at least not yet and we had to respect that”.

Mark drops his gaze now, and Chris has to tilt his head up for him to listen. “Mark, you haven’t even apologized. I don’t know if your ego’s too big and you don’t want to concede defeat but anyone with eyes can see that you miss him.”

Mark just nods as he shrugs Chris away and mumbles something about going to the cafeteria.

“For what it’s worth he misses you too” Chris calls out. This stops Mark in his heels.

“He said that?”

“Well, he hasn’t really said anything about you. He’s purposefully trying to avoid talking about you, actually. But his body speaks volumes. He kind of perks up when me or Dustin accidentally bring you up, he accidentally shifts his body to the right whenever he’s caught up in a good story and looks to his side when he’s finished talking about it only to realize you’re not there.”

“What are you talking about Chris? That doesn’t make any sense at all.”

“Mark, we can just tell okay. It’s one of those ‘you have to see it’ things. And you should really give me and Dustin more credit, sometimes we can read both of you better than you can read yourselves.”

“What does that supposed to mean?”

But Chris just smiles and shrugs. “Good talk” he says finally before he reaches Eduardo’s room, leaving Mark puzzled in the hallway.
