the other day i got a message asking me to make a mark/wardo fic rec list. so here it is :)
♔ the most superb the social network fics ever written in the world ever, a rec list by me
(♥ pieces from my heart | indecentexposed)
mark gets drunk, watches the video of the depositions, and comes to some startling realizations.
(paperweights | indecentexposed)
"pieces from my heart" sequel.
(♥ in grander schemes than this | hitlikehammers)
with a gun to your head and a bomb below your feet, the things that really matter become suddenly, incredibly, undeniably clear.
(the farther i fall i’m beside you | therealw)
wherein mark, for the first time ever, actually listens to what a lawyer has to say. “you know what we’re here for?” marylin continues before he can interrupt, “i mean, what this really feels like?”
(♥ say goodbye (to the world you thought you lived in) | hitlikehammers)
three years after the lawsuit, mark realizes that pushing eduardo out of his life was a bigger deal, a bigger loss, than he ever thought it would be. when a particularly unimaginable twist of fate gives him the opportunity to go back and change what happened, mark jumps at the chance to do things differently, to try and make things right — except that when he does, eduardo ultimately ends up dead. so he keeps going back, trying to keep eduardo safe while still making sure that none of it — the dilution, the depositions, the settlement — ever happened, except it’s useless, a fool’s errand: whatever he does, no matter how hard he tries, eduardo dies every single time.
(in any other world | hitlikehammers)
timestamp to “say goodbye (to the world you thought you lived in)”
(they say we’re buried far | oflights)
based on this quote by mark zuckerberg “i didn’t know anything. in silicon valley, you get this feeling that you have to be out here. but it’s not the only place to be. if i were starting now, i would have stayed in boston. if i were starting now i would do things very differently.”
(♥ drive all night | fairy_tale_echo)
of course dustin has probably the only car in the world that reads you your facebook newsfeed. of course he does. (and when mark and eduardo get stuck in it together, they end up saying a lot without ever speaking a word.)
(mulligan | oflights)
in which eduardo discovers he’s kind of an asshole, breaks his own heart a few times, breaks mark’s heart, and then has to fix it.
(the time is come when the day is done | moogle62)
mark takes the most important phone call of his life three months into the zombie apocalypse. the sound of his ringtone makes him jump so badly that he almost drops his gun.
(17 muscles | isnt-brains)
dustin and mark bet each other that they can make eduardo smile more in a month, which leads to jealousy, drunken shenanigans, and far too much fluff.
(superconnected | oflights)
eduardo and mark share excruciating, debilitating headaches that force them to be in close contact, after years of avoidance.
(when they open up your heart | ellot)
mark and eduardo’s relationship over the years in a world where people can get a timer which counts down the time until they meet their soulmate, but only if their soulmate has one too. or: eduardo has a timer, mark doesn’t, soulmates exist, and boys are silly when dealing with feelings.
(♥ watch the lights go wild | oflights)
five people the press thought mark was dating, plus one person he actually was. or: mark was born to ruin chris hughes’ life.
(in every line of code | lc2l)
mark’s parents buy him eduardo - a state-of-the-art, brand new, tailor made robotic best friend - for his birthday. the only problem is, mark asked for a laptop.
(♥ anatomy of an unfortunate seduction | a-jejune-star)
mark getting some ideas from “redbook’s foreplay tips and techniques - foreplay ideas for men” on how to seduce wardo.
(the markly duckling | oflights)
(art fic) once upon a spring break mark squawked, chris was otherwise occupied, wardo came to the rescue, and dustin was right all along.
(more than the recommended amount | moogle62)
in which dustin gets impatient, mark gets a cold, and eduardo gets all the feelings in the world.
(♥ velociraptor heart | jeyhawk)
staying angry with mark is much harder than eduardo anticipated.
(♥ in the details | grim_lupine)
so he has eduardo now, and maybe eduardo has learned to not expect too much of him, but mark—mark doesn’t want to be that. he wants to see the details, he wants to know how to—how to keep this. he wants to know eduardo as thoroughly and instinctively as he does facebook, because he has both again, and this time he will make it work. so mark learns the details.
(♥ our endless numbered days | hapakitsune)
you can’t change your situation. the only thing that you can change is how you choose to deal with it. or, the one where mark has cancer.
(oriented towards the other | hapakitsune)
mark’s empathy has been blocked off for years, for his own safety as well as comfort. but if he wants to win eduardo back, he’s going to have to embrace his ability and re-learn how to live with other people.
(don’t love you (but i always will) | casey_sms)
eduardo marries mark to save facebook… supposedly…
(sky that’s always blue | putana)
eduardo has always had an affinity with the weather - odd things, like always being warm; knowing when it will rain/snow and it even pays off with friends - mark is never cold when eduardo is happy. but it has never been a weird thing. until the dilution - suddenly the weather is playing up in a major way, unseasonal weather - spring never arriving - and odd bouts of weather for the people that have upset eduardo. initially mark doesn’t notice, but everyone else does, and initially there is no obvious connection. until the depositions and mark just can’t help but notice that the weather seems to react to eduardo’s moods. so mark has to bring spring back.
