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.

While everyone was living messily at the Palo Alto house, a stray cat started hanging out with them (free food, free attention, you know Dustin would be over the moon, etc.)

When that house got cleared out, Mark ended up taking responsibility for the cat- maybe everyone just assumed he would and he had no choice, maybe he formed an attachment, whatever you please. I'd just like to see Mark getting used to having an actual pet he actually has to care for all the time.

[Gen] Mark

(sorry!)

Fill (1/1)

She's black and white. Skinny when she first gets spotted around the house. Obviously a stray.

People start putting out food for her.

Then they start petting her.

And then finally she won't leave them alone, and she's suddenly the house cat.

Sean names her Johnson. Mark isn't sure why, but the guy was high, obviously had no clue what gender the cat was, and knowing him, there's probably something lewd about it.

Johnson is the only name she responds to, so, go figure.

But even though Sean names her, it's Dustin who likes her and plays with her and treats her like a pet.

And even though it's Dustin who plays with her, it's Chris who feeds her and cleans out the litterbox and does everything that involves chores, which he dislikes but knows he can lord over Dustin at some point in the future. Because Dustin will do anything if it means he doesn't have to clean out the damn litterbox.

But everybody gets used to Johnson the stray cat and then not so stray cat hanging around, milking the constant attention for all it's worth.

Mark is the only one who doesn't seem to care for her one way or another.

He's just too busy.

+

And then the house in Palo Alto clears out, and there's the disaster with Eduardo and Facebook absolutely explodes in popularity.

But then there's Johnson, the cat nobody can really take care of.

It's Mark who finds her, soon after the disastrous million member party.

He's already feeling lonely.

She's hungry, and now that she knows what it's like to live in a house and eat every day, she's not eager to go back to the streets.

And Mark knows that even if she adapts back, and she probably will, whatever, she'll probably die in a few years anyway. She could live longer if she had a person with her.

He doesn't know why he decides to pick her up and carry her to his car and drop her unceremoniously into the back seat.

It might be guilt.

It might be loneliness.

It might be...something.

But he doesn't really think of those things.

Mostly he just puts her in the back seat and that's the end of it.

+

Mark thinks that the cat's a huge pain in the ass and regrets ever taking pity on her.

She keeps meowing when he's trying to concentrate, or, when he has his music blaring, nuzzling his leg or something like that.

It takes him a really long time to realize that maybe she just wants attention.

So he pets her, and lets her sleep in his bed at night.

He won't admit it, but she helps.

She makes him feel calm.

He likes the purring.

He likes the warmth.

He likes her, maybe.

+

Sometimes Mark misses Eduardo.

A lot.

Sometimes he thinks he might have made a mistake shutting his best friend out.

Sometimes he misses Eduardo next to him, talking to him.

He has to content with Johnson next to him, meowing to him.

And it's weird, because sometimes it's actually okay.

+

He starts leaving work a little earlier so he can get home to feed the cat.

He thinks he might be turning into one of those pathetic people with only an animal as a companion.

When he comes home every night, Johnson is curled up near the door, and always wakes up and nuzzles his ankles, and he almost always smiles, something that's rarer and rarer lately.

He feels actual affection toward a stupid cat, and that's probably stupid.

But at least it makes him feel a bit better when he's had a shitty day.

+

Late at night, he reads a book, maneuvering it around Johnson, purring on his lap.

On occasion, he absentmindedly pets her.

Sometimes he thinks she's the most consistent thing in his life.

He'll admit he's fond of her.

She's definitely fond of him.

She kind of makes him happy.

+

In the beginning, it's Shawn that names her.

It's Dustin that plays with her.

It's Chris that takes care of her.

But in the end, it's Mark that loves her.
