31st-Jul-2012 10:58 pm Hey pretty girl (i'm a good girl) (R)
So, this is the end of this turn. I have something like 200 fics in my bookmaker and a lot in my delicious account. I tried to recs the larger number of authors and pairings, hoping to have given you a large range of types and styles.

Ciao :)

Pairing: Christy (Christy/Mark - past Christy/Eduardo)
Length: 47314 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] dasaiko
Why this must be read: I want to conclude my round with one of the few het fics and a GREAT one! I found it very interesting also for learning a little bit more about the (fictional-but-probable) life of an Asian american girl like Christy (quite different from mine).

27th-Jul-2012 10:34 pm VID REC: Who will love you? Who will fight?
Fandom: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Length: 2:29
Author Website: DailyPressure
Why this must be viewed: Check all her works: they are great! BTW was hard to choose a vid, there are very great works in this fandom. Well, I choose this, because it has more Mark's faces xD In 0:47 Mark is in awe of Sean (and Wardo! precious!Wardo), and in 1:20 how he's starting to really understand that this is the end. Beautiful, very beautiful.

Who will love you? Who will fight?

Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Length: 9900 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] grim_lupine
Why this must be read: followed her from GK to X:FC. She is more know for another fic, but this is my favorite of her. This is a little post-dep, domestic fic, with several POV (yes, I really like them). Romantic and sweet, but not over the top.

Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Length: 15300 words
Author on LJ: Lynn (gaealynn)
Why this must be read: it's one of the few fic where Mark is the CEO of FB, making what a CEO does!

Plus broken feeling, reconciliation with Wardo (and with a very good analyzing of his character by Mark POV), etc...

Pairing: Chris/Dustin
Length: 4000 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] daisysusan
Why this must be read: (alias Five times Chris doesn't take Dustin seriously and one time he does). I'm not a Chris/Dustin fan per se (Chris has so little screen time *sad*) but some authors make me really love them. This fic is really fluffy and adorable!

Fandom: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Length: 27600 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] antistar_e
Why this must be read: Serial killer!AU. This is one of those AU where just something is different from canon. It's all like in TSN, just... Mark and Eduardo are serial killers. Great character study, great girls voices, and it's incredible how she recreated the banter, the co-dependency, improving it drammaticaly. It's beautiful and perfect and wrong: epic!

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] aredblush
Why this must be read: Mark is changed in a little duck!!! This fandom has an habit to turn the fab4 in dik-diks, plants, penguins, etc... and this mini fic has 8 lovely drawings! (well, maybe it's vice versa).

Length: 11 000 + 25 500 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] moogle62 (the time etc...) and [livejournal.com profile] antistar_e (a seahorse etc...)
Why this must be read: Zombie Apocalypse AUs. The first is from Mark's POV, while the remix is from Wardo's! They are the right mix between horror, love, fear, salvation, ... they are really complementary.

Fandom: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Pairing: gen (with great Mark/Eduardo dynamic)
Length: 17 000 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] __sine
Why this must be read: Mark is Iron Man, Eduardo is Spiderman. Not really an AU, because everything happens after the movie. It's a fusion! It has meta! There is Christy! It rocks! (note: AG, who played Saverin, is the new Spiderman. And RDJ quoted the TSN tagline in the Avengers *fandoms collision*)

2nd-Jul-2012 12:07 am Sympathy For The Devil by [livejournal.com profile] merisunshine36 & <user site="livejour
Ciao :) I'm [livejournal.com profile] skyearth85 and I'll be your reccer for The Social Network this month!

Important note: in February '12, Gawker.com posted an article about Mark/Eduardo fanfiction with links. NONE OF US HAD PROBLEMS! But, like you could image, it caused a lot of alarm. So, between now and the first recs round, we had: locked fics, members-only communities, deleted stories, etc... BUT! We continue to exist, and even if less, we still be strong :p

So, first story: The Mafia AU of d00m!

Fandom: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Pairing: gen/het/slash
Length: 68,586 words (in 9 stories)
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] merisunshine36 & [livejournal.com profile] thedeadparrot
Why this must be read: it's a very beautiful and interesting saga where, even if the characters are always the same, every part is focused on some of them (my favorites are "Rock and a Hard Place" focused on Chris, and "Gimme Shelter" on Divya); it's a Mafia AU in a modern setting;

Fandom: THE SOCIAL NETWORK
Pairing: Mark/Eduardo
Length: 24,600 words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] oflights
Author Website: Masterlist
Why this must be read:

My last rec. I made it to 31 recs as planned, although, admittedly they weren't actually posted one per day. I hope you enjoyed.

This is a kind of mtdi fic, as the universe curses Mark and Eduardo with headaches unless they are together. I applaud this, universe; they do need help to get fixed. Delightful dialogue and well-written, with an enjoyable Dustin, Chris and Sean to boot.

“Yeah, I came to a shareholders meeting in my boxers, once. I was really tired. I didn’t really care, but Chris was having an aneurysm, so Sean declared it No Pants Thursday and he and Dustin took their pants off, too, and got everyone else to start stripping. It was fairly terrifying in the end, I saw more of those people than I ever wanted to. But now No Pants Thursday happens every once in a while, it’s sort of a tradition.”

His stomach had dropped slightly at the mention of Sean, as it tends to do, but eventually the image of all the Facebook bigwigs sitting around a conference table in their underwear makes him giggle helplessly, and he stuffs his face in his pillow to keep from laughing louder. “God, if I’d known about No Pants Thursday, I might not have skipped all those meetings. There was never anything in the minutes about that.”

“You should come to the next one; Dustin already has his Power Rangers boxers picked out for the occasion, I know you don’t want to miss that.”
