Title: This is a Story of Loaded Glances
Fandom and Pairing: The Social Network Mark/Eduardo
Rating: R-ish for now. Not that explicit, but still a tad NSFW.
Word Count: This is a WiP! This chapter has 3,795 words.
Warnings: Very light angst (for now. It'll get worse), emotionally abusive relationships and closeted love. oh the tragedy!
Disclaimer: I own nothing. I am not Aaron Sorkin, I did not create Mark and Eduardo as they are portrayed in the Social Network. These are DEFINITELY not the real cofounders of facebook portrayed here. Nothing is real!
Summary: Mark and Eduardo were in a relationship through their freshman year, until they broke it off for reasons. Mark didn’t screw Eduardo over because he was jealous of the final club. He didn’t want it to go that far, with the dilutions, and the yelling, and the deposition. He just wanted Eduardo back. He wanted Eduardo to come out and come live with him. He made those decisions so that Eduardo would either come out to live with him, where they could grow old together in Palo Alto, rich and ground breaking and together. But Eduardo couldn’t, and the dilutions were Mark’s last ditch, stupid attempt to get Eduardo back. Eduardo wouldn’t, and Mark had to lie, because even though Wardo hurt him, even though living without Wardo was like living without oxygen, Mark couldn’t tell the truth, couldn’t hurt him that badly. Notes:
I've been hovering in the fandom since the movie came out, but have never written fic before, until I was watching the Social Network for the 30th time three weeks ago. It isn't beta'd, although I'd love a beta! Comment if you want to be one! Title from the Chris Pureka song, "Burning Bridges". ( Collapse )
