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 * PART SEVEN


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

(Anonymous)
Five things Eduardo could not bring himself to say to Mark. (One of them is a lie.)

finding the words - 1/1

Or, five things Eduardo couldn't bring himself to say (and one that he couldn't help).

Hope you enjoy, OP!


i. I love you.

They're lying in bed together and Mark's chest is rising and falling and even now he can't make himself say it.

He's a coward.

I love you, and he thinks the words so powerfully he almost wishes Mark could hear them but he can't, he can't, and Eduardo's going to have to deal with that; because Mark doesn't love him back and it's useless to pretend that he does.

But he wants, he wants Mark to want him like Eduardo does, to smile at him like Eduardo does.

Mark sleeps on, and gradually Eduardo's thoughts calm, and he sleeps as well.

ii. I miss you.

He's in New York and he wants to be with Mark, only with Mark, but he can't say that - because how could he say a thing like that, to Mark, of all people?

He talks to him on the phone and they exchange the necessary pleasantries and it's all very, very civil.

Except - it's not, because Mark is holding something back, Eduardo can tell, and so is he - but they dance around it and it becomes a sort of wall between them and Eduardo misses Mark but he won't say it.

He can't.

iii. I'm sorry.

After he freezes the accounts, when Mark yells at him - he wants to apologize, to say that he's sorry and make everything better but he can't.

He's in New York and Mark's in Palo Alto and he knows he's done something wrong and he waits for Mark to hit him, for Mark to do something that Eduardo knows is going to fuck up his life.

Mark doesn't. Mark yells and Eduardo listens and he wants to apologize but he won't. Not yet.

And by the time he can say it, by the time he's so done with pretending to be something he's not, it doesn't mean anything, because Mark's not listening anymore.

iv. Why?

He can't ask the question he knows he should ask. He alludes to it but he knows it wasn't about the Phoenix, of course it wasn't about the fucking Phoenix, and he doesn't know why Mark would do this.

He wants to ask, to scream it at him until Mark listens, but there's too much between them and too much lost.

And so he stays silent.

v. I hate you.

He wants to say this one. He knows he should, feels it on the tip of his tongue - but he's never been able to lie to Mark.

Even during the depositions, when he wants to say I hate you, what comes out instead is I was your only friend.

He hadn't been, that's stupid to think, but it's how it had felt and Mark knows it. It'd been them against the rest of the world, hadn't it, and Mark had fucked that up.

This is Mark's mess, now, and Eduardo wants to rub it in, wants to make Mark bleed, but he won't.

He still can't lie to mark.

(i. I love you, again.

It's years later and they're together, now, and it's nothing Eduardo thought he would get but he's so, so grateful he has.

Their story isn't particularly remarkable but now, nuzzling into Mark's shoulder on their bed, Eduardo can't keep it in any longer.

"I love you," he whispers into Mark's neck.

Mark whips his head around. "What?"

Eduardo's feeling marginally less confident, but he nods. "I love you."

Mark's face relaxes, then, into an easy smile. "I love you, too, Wardo."

He's glad they've gotten here, and now he doesn't have things he can't say to Mark.

He doesn't need them.)

OP!

I LOVE YOU!

I loved the simplicity of this. You have a way of writing things so that they hit straight to the heart, and the emotions here were vivid and wonderful. I could not have asked for a better fill. Thank you so much!

Re: finding the words - 1/1

ugh, so sad at the beginning but yeee the ending. \o/

Re: finding the words - 1/1

I love your writing style. So poignant and gripping.

So much in so few words. <3

Re: finding the words - 1/1

simply, but so sweet: I love it *kudos*

Re: finding the words - 1/1

This is wonderful.

IT IS.

I love your Mark, and your Eduardo who is so very very blind when it comes to Mark's love(my personal headcanon is they were both smitten, but Mark didn't deign to examine that about himself, Eduardo was too scared to examine it (and thus didn't know it) about Mark; misunderstandings abounded because they needed each other and pushed each other away because they thought, each of them, that the other didn't). I love the way you packed such a punch in such a tiny piece, and I love, love, love that last line. I truly believe that when they get past the past, it's a relief to know the worst is over. It's pretty hard to do that twice, I think, when you've got that kind of self-awareness.

Ugh, just. This was lovely. I loved it. ♥
