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.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING;

i know you guys are enjoying this meme and i appreciate that but please can you put the SUBJECT HEADER on your prompt. you would REALLY be helping me out if you could do that. it just saves time for me when i'm trying to tag everything in delicious.

AND PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT repost prompts from parts three, four, five or six over here again. the delicious is around for people to find prompts they may not have already seen. (prompts for parts one and two are now up for reposting.)

Mark/Dustin or Mark/Eduardo

(Anonymous)
Mark gradually withdraws without anyone noticing until he just stops speaking and responding completely. It's as if he's given up.

care - 1/1

(Anonymous)
It's not that he doesn't want to talk.

It's not that he can't.

It's not even that no one cares, really.

He just -

He doesn't -

He's alone.

*

He stops smiling, first, and soon his face is blank, all of the time, when things affect him and when they don't.

Dustin gives him strange looks but doesn't say anything.

And why should he?

Mark's the one that's fucked up.

*

He stops speaking, next, and throws himself into code, throws himself into the work that got him here.

He's alone and hurting and this is all that he knows.

(He hates admitting that he hurts, but that's what it is.)

His assistant brings him Red Bull and she doesn't notice.

*

One day, he tries to code. His fingers hover over the keyboard, and he seems lost.

Mark doesn't care.

He doesn't care.

He stands and he goes into the bathroom, looks at himself in the mirror.

His face is sunken and his eyes are dark and his hair is flat around his head. He's lost weight - he looks something like emaciated.

He doesn't care. He's not affected at all by it - he just stares and stares until he thinks he might be able to code again.

He does.

*

Dustin tries to talk to him, one day.

"Mark. Mark?"

And it's as though he's in a dream world, and Mark just blinks up at him, and he doesn't want to respond and so he won't.

Dustin's face twists and he stands up again, leaves. "I'm going to get someone. Stay there."

Mark does.

*

He's lost track of how time passes.

Everything is fuzzy.

He's not sure he's sleeping. There are times he can't remember and times he can, and he assumes the ones he can't are him sleeping.

But who knows? Who really knows?

He blinks and pulls himself to the desk, codes until every thought leaves.

He won't remember this soon.

Coding is just like sleeping, after all, and more productive.

*

Dustin touches his shoulder, once.

Mark jerks away. It's the first time he's been touched in he can't remember how long, and he swallows, looks at Dustin, doesn't say anything.

"Mark," Dustin tries, leaving his hand there, "Mark, that doesn't make any sense."

Mark looks at the code, tries to parse it out, and hidden among the keystrokes are something like words, half-words, unnoticed by anyone but him.

he-lp
war-do
dy-i-ng


And in between each set, there's code, real code, and Mark nods.

He doesn't care.

He goes back to the computer, removes everything that's messing it up, and waits until Dustin leaves.

Maybe it's therapeutic.

*

It's only when he sees Chris that he starts to get worried.

"We need to get you home," Chris says, and what the fuck, Mark's been home, Jesus.

He's pretty sure.

And Chris manhandles him into the shower and washes his hair and Mark still doesn't speak.

"Mark," Chris says, and Mark looks up, and water is dripping off of his nose, "Mark, you need to get help."

Mark shrugs, and he doesn't need to talk, doesn't want to talk.

"Mark," Chris sighs, and he wraps Mark in a towel, pulls him into a hug. "Go get dressed."

Mark nods.

*

He thinks about this, later, thinks about Chris doing something like caring, but he doesn't let those thoughts linger.

He codes harder, faster, and it's all good, there aren't any more messages.

*

Dustin's at his door.

*

"Mark, you need help."

*

"Mark, I'm bringing someone else in."

*

Memories blur together until Mark isn't sure what's real and what's not, but that's okay, that doesn't matter, nothing fucking matters.

*

"Mark," and the voice is soft and not Dustin's and not Chris', but it's familiar, and Mark turns, wide-eyed.

It's--and it can't be, and Mark shakes his head, because Eduardo doesn't give a shit, can't give a shit.

"Oh, Mark," and it's not pitying, it's worried, and he pulls Mark close, lets Mark lean on him, into him. "Mark, honey, you can't do this, okay? Stop hating yourself."

And Wardo gets it, he's always gotten it, and he lets Mark fall into him. "Mark, sweetie," and he's using endearments that Mark's all but forgotten, "Mark, you have to go home."

Mark nods, and he's still clutching at Wardo.

"It's okay, it's okay, I promise. I get it. Mark, I'm not angry anymore."

Mark starts to care.

He takes Wardo's hand, and lets him lead them out.
