Welcome everybody. How you got here I have no idea but thank you for coming and welcome again, nonetheless . As you may have gathered this is a Fic Prompting Meme dedicated solely to the hilarious and oh-so-addictive BBC Radio 4 sitcom - Cabin Pressure. I'm aiming for this to be pretty anything goes - but in order for everything to run smoothly, there are a few guidelines. Don't worry - they're not too restrictive.

  1. Be respectful to one another. Disagreements are fine, but not everything disagreeable is trolling. If you suspect someone of trolling, just ignore it. If you cannot respond to a comment without attacking or trolling someone else, keep it to yourself.

  2. No bashing prompts. It might not be your cup of tea - but obviously someone wants it enough to go to the effort of requesting it. So just scroll past it.

  3. Prompt away as much as you like guys - seriously, go wild - but please try to fill as well.

  4. NEW - If your fill includes a major element that veers from the original prompt (crossovers, established universes, kinks, et cetera), please take a few moments to check with the OP that such additions are welcome. This has caused problems in the past and it only takes a few moments of your time.
  5. Please no RPF. I'm not trying to oppress you RPF writers and enthusiasts, I would just really like to avoid any legal problems.

  6. When you post a fill (or post a new part of a WIP) please go over to the Filled Prompts Post (if it is complete) or the WIP Post (if there are still more parts to come) and, following each post's guideline's, post a link to this fill or new part.

And outside of the ordered list, because it's important:

This Meme is an 18+ zone. This means both in terms of users and content. We require users to be over the age of 18 because DreamWidth is an American website, and numerous child protection acts apply in this situation. We require content to not include minors in any sexual situations because many of our members, including one of our moderators, are Australian and we would very much like for them to be able to continue participating here.


Navigation



In addition to most of this stuff being listed on the side-bar, it's also listed here (in case we forget to renew the subscription or something and revert back to a basic account. Or just to make sure everyone sees it).


  • Page-a-Mod Post - Leave a comment here, signed in or anon, and a moderator will get back to you ASAP.

  • FAQ - Commonly-asked questions for both canon and how the meme works. Please check this before asking a question.

  • Using the Old Meme to find posts on DW - Posts I and II are mirrored (to a point) on LJ, but the comments over there are disabled. This page will show you how to use what you may have bookmarked from the LJ meme to find the corresponding thread on DW.

  • Searching Post - Lost something? Ask here, and someone will find it for you!

  • Oprhan Post - WIPs that have been abandoned by the author, and which can be claimed by a new author.


  • Current Prompt Post - Prompt posts close at ~5000 comments. You may continue filling after that, but new prompts after the close will be deleted. Current prompt posts will always be listed here, and at the bottom of every page.

  • Beta Post - For those looking for a beta/britpicker, or those looking to offer their services as such.

  • Current Chatter Post - Chatter posts close at 10,000 comments, or whenever a moderator tires of captcha. Current chatter posts will always be listed here, and at the bottom of every page.

  • Filled Prompts Post and WIP Post - Announce your fills here. Not everyone tracks the full meme, so posting your fills to the appropriate place ensures more people will see them. It also makes it easier for the helper elves to index/catalogue your fills.

  • Spreadsheet of Fills - All the fills, listed in chronological order. Useful alternative to tracking posts.

  • Prompt Index - All the prompts, in no particular order, but tagged by many different criteria. Useful for finding something specific to fill or read.

Hello all! Bear with us a moment--we're trying something new!

Prompt V has reached the 5k comment mark, so it's time for Prompt VI, right? Yes...but first we're going to do a week-long Festival of Fills!

Guidelines:
  1. Parts I-V are open for filling.
  2. This thread will close on August 5, next Sunday.
  3. When you've completed your fill, post it to the appropriate part as you normally would and then announce it here.


This isn't a contest, so participants will not receive anything for their participation, but there is a goal. The goal is to create as many fills as reasonably possible, and will set the bar for the next festival post. Usual meme rules apply, and you may be logged-in or anon, whichever you're more comfortable with.

Last Festival of Fills, we got 4 fills. Let's see if we can top that! Prompt Part VI will open when this Festival closes, so until then--happy filling!

Part I | Part II | Part III | Part IV | Part V

Hello, all. The Beta/Concrit Post is an idea that came up on the meme and we're going to give it a try. For authors looking for a beta, and people wanting to offer beta services, we present your very own corner of the meme!

For Authors


For all you excellent fillers, authors, etc. who want a second opinion.

  1. Post a new comment

  2. In the subject line, place your title or a brief description of the fill content (Martin/Douglas spelunking, Arthur/Snoopadoop friendship, Herc/Opera=OTP).

  3. In the comment itself, copy or link to the original prompt, and include a link to your fill.

  4. If you and your potential beta want to work out another method for beta-ing, such as emailing back and forth or Google Docs feel free to arrange it on the meme or via PM's, but keep in mind that the meme is a public forum and any private information posted here is no longer private.


For Betas


If you'd like to hang out your shingle as a beta-reader, thank you!

  1. The easiest option: reply to an author looking for a beta! Or, post a new comment.

  2. In the subject line, put something like "Offering to Beta" or whatever you see fit to advertise your services.

  3. In the comment, give authors an idea of things you like to read. (Douglas/Carolyn FTW!, Carl/Gertie rarepair, Arthur-Martin friendship). If you have anything you can't or won't read, you might want to mention it.

  4. You may want to include an outside contact option, but as stated above please keep in mind that the meme is a public forum and any information shared here is just that-public.


For Concrit


For all you writers looking to for multiple opinions.

  1. Post your comment, as you do, with your subject line making it clear that you're after concrit.


  2. Link to, or post, your fic in question. Fics can be completed or WIP, anon or logged-in.


  3. They must be YOUR OWN fic. This should go without saying, but I'm saying it anyway.


  4. Keep in mind that in asking for concrit or a critique of your work, you are opening yourself up for opinions which you may not agree with. Anyone can give concrit, but not all concrit is created equal. Concrit is not flaming, and flaming is not concrit. Concrit is a good thing that helps you become a better writer, but you are free to politely reject any suggestions you may get on this page. Authors and commenters alike will be held equally accountable here.


For Everyone



  1. Keep it civil. You are here to ask or offer assistance, not bully or bash.

  2. When your joint efforts between author and beta yield a polished finished product, please let us know! You can link to a cleaned-up version of of your fic on the Filled Prompts post.

  3. This post is under development and we're just trying it out. If you have suggestions, please feel free to let us know on the Chatter Post

Welcome everybody. By request, this is a new little corner of the meme for other little side projects John Finnemore et al that have no fandoms. So here's a place for you to finally drop that plotbunny that's been bugging you for all this time. I'm aiming for this to be pretty anything goes - but in order for everything to run smoothly, there are a few guidelines. Don't worry - they're not too restrictive.

Greetings! While Prompt Post IV is coming to a close soon, there remain prompts from the previous posts that are looking a bit lonely. Just to make sure some of those brilliant ideas aren't forgotten forever, we're having a little festival to get as many of the posts filled as possible!

Here's how this works:


  1. Find prompts that you like

  2. Fill them!



OK, there's a bit more to it than that )


This post officially opens now, and will remain open until 5 June. Last round, we got four fills. Let's see if we can double that!

Happy Filling!

No, not of the sad-faced Victorian variety, but for fills. This is for authors to let people know that their fill will not be continued by them, and to let someone else take up the fill to complete it.

All you have to do is post the prompt and give a link to the fill. You can include more than that, if you want to (where the story was going, important plot points, et cetera), but this is all that's required.

By posting your fill here, you are giving permission to another writer to continue the story and to do with it as they see fit. Orphaned fics may only be posted by the original author, no exceptions. If it turns out that this post is being abused, it will be deleted.

Good morning/evening/time of day relative to your perspective time zone, drivers everyone! Since we have a lot of questions popping up, some of them more than once, we figured it's about time we cobble together an FAQ of sorts. It's about as piecemeal as a bowl of surprising rice, so don't be alarmed if you find the occasional odd bit in here that might not belong. If you've any questions, additions, or corrections, please feel free to fling them at the comments, and someone will get round to addressing them after they've finished their game of solitaire.

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I have your attention please. Welcome to the brand new Page-a-Mod post. This post does not have a spiffy banner, because I am not the mod who makes them, but all the same it has come to my attention that we may be in need of an easier way to get hold of someone in charge. I doubt this will be seeing much use, much like a life vest on a flight between here and Luton, but in the unlikely even that we crash into a swimming pool someone has an issue that they need addressed, you can do so here.

As always, anon commenting is on. Comments are not screened, so if you want absolute privacy, you can always PM this account.

Bing-bong!

This is not your captain speaking, but I am speaking nonetheless to let everyone know that we are back online and ready to accept your prompts and comments!

You may notice that the comments from our old home aren't showing up yet, but rest assured that they will be here shortly, and in the order in which they were originally placed. So, if you've a fill to post, you may want to wait for the comments to go through before locating the prompt. It may be a bit rough for the next few days whilst we all find our feet again, but believe me, we're probably all feeling it. But I do still believe that this move was for the best, as do I'm sure many of you.

I'll be going through one last time to make sure everything is set up properly, but at this point, we are ready to go! :D

Ahhh I see you've found your way over here, to the WIP Post. Welcome to you all :)
