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.)

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

(Anonymous)
After the whole “lawyer up, asshole” Eduardo doesn't leave straight away. He bumps into Dustin, who forces him into one of the conference rooms. While Dustin is away looking for water, he overhears Mark talking to Chris: Mark's telling him the actual reason he kicked Eduardo out of the company. He's in love with him.

FILLED: And our cracking bones make noise 1/3

(Anonymous)
Before you can grow up, you must fall in love three times. Once, you must fall in love with your best friend, ruining your friendship forever...

"Hey, hey, hey. Wardo." Dustin is jogging towards him and Eduardo clenches his fists against his sides. When Dustin reaches him, he's fuming. "What's going on?"

"Oh, like you don't know?" Eduardo scoffs. Dustin cocks his head to the side.

"Um... is this something I should know about?" Eduardo rolls his eyes. How can Dustin be so stupid.

"Mark diluted my shares." He waits for the lightbulb to go on Dustin's head, to remember what's going on. But Dustin looks speechless. "To .03 percent." It hurts saying it again. He wants to go back in there and shake Mark and ask him "Why?"

"What?" Dustin squints his eyes. "Not Mark, he wouldn't." Eduardo shakes in his shoes.

"Wanna go in and ask him?" He furiously points behind him. "Hm? He'll look at Sean who will nod at him proudly like he was there. Like he was in Kirkland when we first launched Facebook. Like Mark actually means someth--" He stops, his heart is pounding. Dustin puts a hand on his shoulder.

"Okay, c'mon. Come with me." He leads Eduardo to an empty office and turns on the light. Eduardo sits on the desk and puts his head in his hand, his elbows on his thighs. He can see Dustin's fingers fidgeting. "Okay, um. I'm gonna get you a drink. You wait here. Don't. Go anywhere." He says and he sprints off. Eduardo just puts his head back in his hands. He wants to scream. He wants to push the computer monitor next to him off the desk and watch it break.

Dustin is sure taking his time, Eduardo thinks. His legs are bouncing and he's getting restless. He needs to get out of this building. He needs to get out of this city. He needs to get out of this state. California is Hell and Mark is the devil.

No, Eduardo isn't stupid. Sean is the devil and Mark is his advocate. Mark is too dumb, too naive, to realize what he's doing. And Eduardo knows it's his fault. He knows the way he treated Mark in their time at Harvard did nothing to harden his skin, to make Mark want to start thinking for himself.

He hears voices. He perks his head up. "-- is he going?" Chris? Did Dustin get Chris? He doesn't need--

"I don't know, Chris. He just... left." Mark?

"Mark, you're an idiot." Eduardo chuckles to himself in agreement.

"Tell me something I don't know, Chris. Okay? The one good thing... the only good thing." Silence. Eduardo strains to listen. "He terrifies me, Chris. He treats me like no one in my life has ever treated me. And I was going to hurt him. I was going to destroy everything. And I-I had to do it before I realized... Before I fucked everything up. Well, look how well that worked."

"Without fucking what up?"

"The way he looks at me! The way he would look at me. Like I was the only thing that ever mattered." They're both silent again. "Look, I-I know I fucked it up. I know everything is fucked and there's nothing that I can do. I was scared."

"This is a lot different than getting drunk and blogging." Chris says.

"Yeah, well I was never in love with Erica Albright. So it's only fitting that I fuck this up a little more." Eduardo's heart pounds in his chest. Love?

"Love?" Eduardo can see Mark now. He's probably retracting back into his shell, closing himself off from Chris. He opened himself up enough.

"Yeah, Chris... yeah." Mark sounds almost like he's in disbelief as well. Eduardo really wants to go up to them, wants to... he doesn't even know. Hit Mark, yell at Mark, kiss Mark. He's so confused. His body is shaking and he really hopes Chris and Mark don't walk by.

"That's... Mark you are the dumbest person I've ever met. You don't dilute the person you love's shares to .03 percent." He's right, Eduardo thinks.

"Chris he'd never love me. So what else was I supposed to do?" Chris laughs then.

"You tell him how you feel. And hope to go he feels the same way. And if not, you move on. You don't assume the worst and try to shove him out of your life! Was Facebook your excuse? Did you use Facebook so you could get rid of him?"

"No, no. I swear. I didn't even... I just... things were going so fast. And he wasn't here. And I realized that Wardo isn't going to be here forever and I can't keep hoping that he will because he's so brilliant and I can't hold him back."

"You're an idiot, Mark. And you make no sense." Silence. "But that doesn't mean I want you to be alone forever."

"Too late." Mark retorts and he sees their shadows coming closer to the door. Eduardo freezes.

"Hey! Mark!" Eduardo hears Sean call from the main offices. "C'mon. they're going to cut the cake and I refuse to cut the first piece without you."

The shadow retreats and Eduardo can breath again. He hears the glass doors to the office shut and then the tension in his body dissipate.

Mark loves him.

Dustin comes back with a glass. Of course, perfect timing. Eduardo's life is all of a sudden like a cheesy romance film. "Sorry I took so long. They... a million users... it's a big night for us." Us. Facebook. Not Eduardo. Eduardo nods.

"Congratulations."

"This is yours too, you know." Dustin says taking a seat next to Eduardo on the desk. Eduardo wants to roll is eyes. He shrugs instead, trying to brush it off. He doesn't care about Facebook anymore. "You okay?"

"Not really, Dustin. Would you be?" Dustin retracts into himself a little. Eduardo feels bad.

"I know... I just don't know what else to say. I want you to talk to me." Eduardo sighs.

"He was my best friend. I would have done anything, I did do anything, for him. And he does this. And I didn't even see it coming." Dustin pats him on the back. "I feel dumb."

"You're not dumb. You were a good friend. Who didn't realize that your good actions would be used against you." Eduardo doesn't realize he's crying until there's a tear drop running down his face.

"You sound like a... a prophet or something." He laughs, not even knowing what he's talking about. Dustin laughs too.

"Nah, just known too many Jewish assholes growing up in Jewland a.k.a. Gainesville so that I know that people aren't always nice. Or don't always have everyone else's best interests in mind." Eduardo nods. "But... I don't think that's the case with Mark." Eduardo looks up, confused. "I mean I know he's an asshole and all. But I don't think he was trying to hurt you. Mark is naive, you know that. He heard some things he liked from a guy who is all about flashing his money and big words and Mark went all gaga." Eduardo wants to tell Dustin what he heard, wants to tell him that Mark is in love with him.

"Do you think he'll realize he was wrong." Dustin shrugs.

"Who knows? Mark is... Mark." Eduardo wipes the tears from his cheeks and nods. "What are you going to do now?"

"Go back and graduate. What I was planning on doing." Dustin nods. "Are you going to stay here?"

"Yeah. Can't leave now. Shit is hitting the fan." He pats Eduardo on the knee. "You'll be fine. You'll probably end up doing better than all of us." Eduardo shakes his head.

They sit in silence. It's calming. He wants to thank Dustin but he's sure it would ruin the moment. So he just sits there and watches the empty hall in front of them.

"Maybe one day we'll all laugh at this. Hey, remember Facebook?" Dustin says and bumps his shoulder against Eduardo's. "Or maybe even a movie. With Leonardo DiCaprio as Dustin Moscovitz." Eduardo laughs then.

"And Brad Pitt as Eduardo Saverin."

"Eh... you've got high hopes." They both laugh. "Okay, you should get out of here. Everyone is going to start leaving soon. Sean mentioned something about an after party... some sorority house at Stanford or something."

"Typical."

"He's a high roller, what can I say." Dustin says rolling his eyes and holds out his arms as he starts to walk away. He then turns around and looks at Eduardo. The smirk leaves Eduardo's face. "You'll do great things, Eduardo Saverin. And I know this isn't like... goodbye or anything because I'll be calling and emailing your ass more often than you think, but I just want you to hear it right now." Eduardo nods and sniffs. Dropping his head to look at his shoes. "I'll see you soon, Wardo."

Eduardo nods and manages a "Bye."

FILLED: And our cracking bones make noise 3/3

He sits at the desk. He doesn't know what he'll do when he leaves. If he leaves, he'll have to get on another flight straight back to New York where he'd pack up his things and go where? Where would he go from there? He sighs and shuts his eyes.

When he opens them again, he's sitting in the chair behind the desk with his head pillowed by his arm. He checks the time. 12:15. He takes a deep breath through his nose and then gets to his feet. Time to leave.

When he walks out of the room, he notices that the lights to the main Facebook offices are still on. He heads over to see if anyone was still in there.

His heart is pounding because this place seems like a battlefield to Eduardo. His armor is already torn up and his sword is somewhere in Boston because he didn't know he'd need it. Not with Mark.

Mark.

Eduardo stops in his tracks when he sees Mark at his desk toying with a card between his fingers. He wants to run away, but he also wants to confront Mark. This is it. What will Eduardo do? Fight or flight?

Fight. He picks his feet up again and walks right up to Mark, whose back it so him. Mark finally turns around when Eduardo is close enough and his eyes widen.

"Eduardo." He says and puts the card down on the table. He looks uncomfortable, he looks unprepared. Like Eduardo.

"Why, Mark?" He doesn't know what else to say. Mark flutters his eyes shut.

"I couldn't give you an adequate answer if I tried." Eduardo balls his hands into fists and growls in frustration.

"Don't give me that bullshit, Mark. I deserve an explanation. You were my best friend and you broke my heart." He gasps. Mark's eyes widen.

"Wardo." Eduardo shakes his head.

"Shut up. Don't pretend like you care now. You lost that chance when you betrayed my trust." He's going to get it out of Mark. He's going to get Mark to tell him how he really feels. He doesn't know what will happen next, but he needs to hear it himself. He needs Mark to tell him and not Chris.

"I never meant to--"

"Well you did, Mark. And... and you're so frustrating! I would have given you anything!" He yells. "Get up and do something! Anything! Show me that my friendship meant something to you."

"You terrify me." Eduardo blinks, taken aback. "I-I don't know how to deal with people. I don't know how to act around you because I've never felt the way I feel about you about anyone else. And it terrifies me because I always fuck everything up. And you mean too much to me to give myself the chance to fuck it up after it's too late. I hurt you, but--" he sighs. "I wanted to let you go before it was too late."

"Before what was too late, Mark?" Eduardo's heart is pounding, he's sure Mark can hear it.

"I love you, Wardo." He drops his head. "I don't know what else to say anymore." Eduardo is dead silent. He'd heard it when he was sitting in the other room unnoticed, but having Mark tell him is... he doesn't know what to do. "Please, Wardo. Say something."

Eduardo jolts to life and reaches down and kneels in front of Mark, placing his hands on both sides of Mark's face and kisses him. When he pulls away, Mark's eyes are shut.

"I hurt you." He whispers. Eduardo shakes his head.

"I don't care, Mark, I don't care about the money. It was never about the money."

"I will hurt you."

"That's okay. I-I'll hurt you too." He smiles, he sounds ridiculous.

"Wardo." Mark says and then presses his lips soundly against Eduardo's and wraps his hands around his neck.

Then his phone rings. He looks at the Caller ID and sees that it's Sean. He just silences the ringer and let's the phone go to voicemail. He then looks up and sees Eduardo looking at him. Mark gives him a shy smile and then takes his hand. "It's not- it's not going to be perfect right away." Eduardo shakes his head, agreeing. "I'm assuming you'll go back to Harvard and I'll be here." Eduardo looks at him, his brown eyes wide. "But we can make something work. Because," he swallows, "because this means something to me." He looks at Eduardo then, vulnerable and real. Eduardo just nods and presses their foreheads together, brushing his nose against Mark's softly.

It's not perfect, and Eduardo knows it will never be perfect. But it's them. And that's perfect enough.

I'm dead. You have killed me but that's all right. This fic was so great to read. The emotions and the reconciliation.
"I hurt you."
"That's okay. I-I'll hurt you too." <33333

Oh my god! I started screaming when I saw this filled, luckily no one was here to listen to me.
i'm not gonna lie, i was a bit disappointed at first when i saw it was so short, but it was so amazing that i don't care.
