PROMPT POST PART III

Please see the most recent MOD NOTE


(updated 6 June)

Cabin Pressure Fic Prompt Post Three


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.


FILLING GUIDELINES



As you probably all know - our meme now has it's very own database created and maintained by the great Enigel. It both catalogues each and every prompt that we post and provides links to fills. You can find it here: Google Spreadsheet

We also have a Pinboard archive which has been put in place by the lovely [personal profile] oxfordtweed in the place of our late Delicious Archive. This Archive contains a list of all the prompts this meme has to offer - you can find it here: Pinboard Archive

This is a great step forward in making our meme just a little more organised (but not too organised of course. This is Cabin Pressure) which is always a good thing.

So in order to make things easier to archive - Please nest your fills.

This can be done by either posting each part as a reply to that part's immediate predecessor, OR by replying each time to Part I OR - well you get the idea :D

It makes it simpler for Enigel and myself to link fills in a clean and clear manner. Following these guildelines will be very much appreciated guys :D

REPROMPTING



Reprompting is allowed but please include the URL of the original prompt when you do so. It will make it infinitely more easy to Archive which would make both Enigel and I very happy :)

As for everything else



  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.


REALLY IMPORTANT ADDENDUM



According to numerous Child Safety laws it is illegal to provide pornographic material to minors. Seeing that the majority of the stuff we have here is rather adult in nature, this Meme is consequently an 18+ zone. Failing to comply to this rule could result in the Meme getting shut down. So if you're here and you're under 18 please back button now.

+ Please do not post anything regarding minors in a sexual situation. It really doesn't matter how tasteful or crass it is, there are laws that classify that sort of thing as child pornography and as such, I'm afraid we're going to have to go with the attitude that safe is better than sorry.

It really is VERY important that these rules are upheld as the consequences are severe.

Other than that - go crazy guys. Any problems please just message me and I'll try my best to work it out.

Both Caitlin and Simon have children, but they're either all boys or all girls (up to you). It's become a common joke at family events that now Martin has to have the one girl/boy, and it's getting on his nerves.

(Or really anything with Martin getting grief for not having kids.)

The Good Name Crieff

(Anonymous) 2012-03-21 05:48 am (UTC)(link)
((Slight variation on what you prompted, but still in the same spirit. Hope you enjoy. :]))

Diane was beaming as Simon affectionately wrapped an arm around her shoulders. Her stomach was huge, jutting out like an over-inflated basketball had been stuffed under her skirt. Caitlin was touching her stomach. Mum was fluttering about in grandmotherly ecstasy. Martin was standing about a foot off, smiling happily and congratulating his brother and sister-in-law, but recognizing that whatever was happening in Diane's stomach was out of his depth. So when he found the most polite time, he walked into the kitchen, where Caitlin's husband, Rick, was preparing a delicious meal of apple sauce for his son. A giddy five-year-old girl shrieked as she chased a four-year-old boy, both nearly running into clumsy Uncle Marty as they screamed.

"Do you need help?" Martin asked.

"Nope," Rick said as he tied the bib around Gavin, "I think I have everyone, well, this one, settled. Why? Do you need to look busy?"

"Yes."

Rick smiled. "Then pour your good brother-in-law a glass of pinot, and give yourself some."

Martin smiled. He opened a cabinet and pulled out two wine glasses, setting them gently on the counter.

"Simon and Diane are having another girl" Martin commented.

"I know. Looks like Diane's going to pop at any moment." Rick looked out of the kitchen window and smirked. "At least that smug tit of a brother of yours won't have that to hang over your head."

"What do you mean?"

"Well," Rick said as he twisted off a lid of a jar of apple sauce, "when you finally have kids, you'll have the fist boy with the last name 'Crieff'."

Martin stilled, his hand tilting the wine bottle to just before a pour. "How do you know I'll have boys?"

"Haven't I told you? I'm psychic." Rick smiled at Martin's back. The older man sighed and spooned out a golden-colored glob. "I could call on statistics, but the sex of children will always be a 50-50 toss. However, it is your luck to have the first boy."

Martin's hand finally tipped the wine glass enough to pour out the clear, greenish-yellow alcohol. "I think you overestimate my luck."

"Then I should be losing my job as a stock-broker at any moment now." Rick accepted the glass and pushed the spoon to his son's mouth.

Martin poured himself a glass--a more generous glass than Rick's--and kept his back to his brother-in-law. "What if I don't have kids? I mean, that's completely possible."

Rick shrugged. "There are always ways to have kids, Martin. There's adoption and surrogacy. You don't always have to have sex with a woman." Rick eyed Martin's tense back. "Not like that will ever be a possibility with you, you shirt-lifter."

Martin let out an uncontrolled laugh and leaned against the counter. Rick may be the only one in his family comfortable enough to joke about Martin's sexuality, but at least he had someone.

Simon's daughter and Caitlin's son ran screaming through the house again and Martin finally turned around to watch them.

"Since we're on the subject," Rick said as he scooped out another spoonful of mush, "how and where is your boyfriend? I was extremely disappointed to come here and see you on your own. You're not lying about your partners again, are you?"

"No, I'm not. He was going to come--he was planning on coming, but his own daughter is having an emergency appendectomy and he wants to be at the hospital for her." Martin sipped his wine. "He'll be at the next family thing, though. If he's still around."

"I'm sure he will. Does he want more kids?"

"I don't know. We haven't talked about that."

"Martin, it's been six months. Your sister and I had already eloped by now."

Marin chuckled. "We're going slow, for one, and he's nearly half-way through his fifties. I don't think Douglas would want another kid."

"Well if you've never asked him, then you'll never know!" Rick smiled. "And make sure it's a boy and he gets the last name Crieff. Please, Martin. I want you to be better than Simon at something."

"What about being better than Simon at something?" Simon asked as he rounded into the kitchen.

Martin froze as Rick smiled up at him. "Oh, at flying RC helicopters. I was just talking to Martin about having a family get together down near us and that maybe we could have RC helicopter races. Figured it be something he'd be good at, since he's paid to fly and all."

Simon put his hands on his hips and snorted as he chuckled. "Oh, Rick Rick Rick. Martin doesn't fly helicopters. He flies planes."

Rick slapped his knee. "You're right! Oh, god, how could I have forgotten?"

Martin snorted, then sipped his wine as Simon looked at him.

"I just came in," Simon said, "to get your orders. And to inquire whether I should be grilling for nine or for ten?"

"Who's the tenth?" Martin asked.

"Your...co-worker" Simon said tentatively. Martin blushed and shoved the wine glass to his mouth.

"And the ninth?" Rick asked.

"Why, the baby of course. Diane is very clearly eating for two now!"

"Oh, right, right."

"It'll be nine" Martin said. "Douglas had an emergency and won't be coming today."

"Oh," Simon said, "that's disappointing. Well, I better put those burgers on!" Simon turned and left. Two screaming children chased him out the door.

"Please, Martin" Rick said. "Have a son."

Martin swirled the wine in his glass and considered it.

flight regulations

(Anonymous) 2012-03-19 10:44 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin is safe, responsible and knows all the regulations. He'd never take the controls himself if he's so exhausted he's barely conscious. Unless he has no other choice.

surprising rice

(Anonymous) 2012-03-19 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
The absolute most surprising thing about Surprising Rice is that it's FUCKING AWESOME. Just no one's managed to get past how it looks and that Arthur made it, so no one knows.

Douglas finally deigns to try Surprising Rice

(Anonymous) 2012-03-20 05:12 am (UTC)(link)
"We may be stranded in the Andes in the dead of winter faced with a choice even Sophie wouldn't envy of either actually using surprising rice for sustinence or drawing straws and eating a member of the crew, but on the upside... This, rather surprisingly, really isn't that bad, Arthur."


seconding!

Chez Martin

[identity profile] mxdp.livejournal.com 2012-03-20 12:32 am (UTC)(link)


Martin can't afford restaurants. So he invites the whole crew over to dinner in his attic room.

No, I don't know why either, just make it happen. :)

Fill : Come Dine With Me

[personal profile] tiwtin 2012-03-24 05:43 am (UTC)(link)
you can blame insomnia for this fill.

----

"No meat, Martin?" Douglas asked asked from the desk chair as Martin handed out the first course. They were all packed into Martin's tiny attic as the result of a bet made on the flight deck some three weeks earlier. After watching an episode of 'Come Dine With Me', Douglas had pointed out that he would easily win such a competition. The announcement had sparked Carolyn's competitive spirit and Arthur insisted he had 'even better recipes than Surprising Rice'.

Martin and Herc had been dragged into the mix due to lack of choice.

"I think it's a lovely gesture and makes me feel quite at home. Thank you, Martin," Herc said, accepting the plate with a smile as Carolyn tutted form her position squeezed next to him on Martin's futon. On her other side Arthur stared at the dish that was being handed to his mother.

"What is it, Skip?" Arthur asked, confused as he accepted his own.

"Beetroot and caramalised onion tart with blue cheese and grape salad with caramelised pecans," Martin replied with a blush.

"Going all out are we?" Carolyn commented.

"God no. I'm hardly expecting to win after Douglas' candlelit dining room and piano music, but I do have the radio I can put on if anyone wants me to?" Martin said, looking around.

Douglas accepted his own mis-matched plate and fork and studied the food. He saw Carolyn's eyes shoot to him in shock as she took her first mouthful and from the look on Herc's face he was experiencing some kind of vegetarian rapture.

"Where did you get this recipe?" Carolyn asked.

"Well, I sort of made it up. I've been doing that a lot lately - I've got a bit of a bargain going on with the students."

"Bargain?" Douglas asked as the subtle flavors of the food burst across his tongue.

"Ive got PhD students this year. They've all been growing their own organic stuff as part of their course and bring it home. They supply the food and I cook it because quite frankly, most of them struggle to pour boiling water into a Pot Noodle."

"And the nuts and cheese?" Carolyn asked, recalling quite vividly Martin's old complaint about having a baked potato if he was lucky.

"They also trade a lot at the farmers markets, so any week we get a mixed and rather random set of ingredients so I've been experimenting to make it work."

"It's absolutely exquisite, Martin!" Herc said, prompting a scowl from Carolyn. "What? I was forced to eat only the top layer of potato off the top from the thing you called a Shepherds Pie on Tuesday - This is Mitchelin Star quality in comparison."

"Finished!" Arthur called out, scraping the last bit of light pastry onto his fork.

"It's not a race to eat it, Arthur!" Carolyn admonished grumpily.  

"But it made my tongue happy! It was fantabulous! What's next?"

"Oh, not just the plain 'Brilliant' that my Cock au Vin got?" Douglas groused, begrudgingly seeing Arthur's point.

"Fennel and lemon risotto with sautéed asparagus, toasted almonds fresh Parmesan, and then a summer fruits crème brûlée," Martin said, shyly.

"Shall we just call Martin the winner now and instead of Arthur and I doing our attempts, we just come back here?" Herc suggested, chasing his last caramelised pecan around his plate with his fork.

"As dually loathed as I am to admit it, I think Herc's right and Martin's won just by the first course. From now on, how about we give Arthur a go at the flying and Martin can stay in the galley and cook?" Douglas proposed.

Martin smiled proudly for a moment, basking the unexpected win before releasing he'd just been relegated to the kitchen. 

"Hey! I'm the Captain!"

But mostly, he is proud of being the only person that Martin trusts with his thoughts when things get bad.

On one of their trips to the Middle East, (or maybe just during a moving job) Martin finds a knackered-looking old brass oil lamp. No one thinks much of it, but when Martin takes it home and tries to give it a bit of a polish...

Basically, Martin + Genie.
You don't have to stick to the traditional limit of three, and whether all the wishes work out or not is up to the filler. Just stick to the one rule- You can't change people's feelings with wishes.

Epic Crossover...

[identity profile] elvendork-lee.livejournal.com 2012-03-20 04:11 pm (UTC)(link)
...Or, How Many Fandoms Does It Take To Fill An Aeroplane?

Instructions:

1. Take as many fandoms as you like, and choose whichever characters from them that you want.

2. Put them all on GERTI.

3. See what happens.

Entirely based on the fact that in my head it's just one constant massive crossover.

Don't worry about choosing fandoms that I/other people won't know. The point is just to get as many at once into one place as possible (so if you have a little-known/under-appreciated fandom you want to use, please do!!).

Has any Douglas/Arthur ever been written? If so I would enjoy some RTYIs. If not then it needs to be written.

Fill: Bubble Bath

[personal profile] jenny_starseed 2012-03-21 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas thought he was too old and too male to have a bubble bath. With toy boats and a rubber ducky float amidst the strawberry scented bubbles. Did Douglas forget to mention he had a very naked and enthusiastic Arthur reenacting a scene from Jaws with a plastic dinosaur and a plastic doll in the tub with him? No?

Douglas sat back in the tub, appreciating the sight before him. Arthur had been taking karate lessons lately and it definitely improved his physique. He was leaner but still soft in certain places that Douglas liked to nuzzle against in bed. Combined with the man’s exquisite oral fixation, Douglas was a very happy and satiated man indeed. Before he knew it, he felt a foot touching him. Arthur had a very lecherous grin as he fondled Douglas beneath the bubbles. As Arthur would put it, it felt brilliant.

The Richardson Boys

(Anonymous) 2012-03-21 05:26 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas and his brother used to be a couple of hellraisers (the stag night was one of the tamer occasions). Douglas can't see his brother these days, because he knows it will cause him to fall off the wagon.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard...

Douglas and Martin have a new bet:

Which one of them can attract the most men in a single month? Because, yeah, it's one thing to attract women, but men...that's a whole new ball game.

Loser has to do one thing the winner asks, even if it's as humiliating as streaking Fitton Airfield in the middle of the day.

Bonus internet cookies if Martin ends up winning the bet.

Super bonus internet cookies if it's just a ploy for Douglas to see if Martin likes men/what kind of men he likes so Douglas can make a move.

Super bonus internet cookies with chocolate chips if Martin uses the bet to see what kind of men Douglas likes and wins and uses his winnings to start some D/M lovin'.

Super bonus internet cookies with chocolate chips delivered by an otter that looks like Benedict Cumberbatch if it stays gen.

Douglas hasn't had any alcohol in years.

But he still does go on benders when distressed, just with rich food instead of alcohol.

After the incident with Kieran, Arthur decides to take karate lessons. He does so that when someone threatens or harasses his Skip, he will show them whose boss.

Martin goes through Caffeine withdrawal

[personal profile] jenny_starseed 2012-03-21 06:40 am (UTC)(link)
Remember how grumpy Martin gets when he doesn't have his special South American stimulant for his damnable sleeping sickness?

For whatever reason, Carolyn stops providing coffee on board GERTI. Martin is not HAPPY.

Carolyn Knapp-Shappey meets Mrs Hudson

IDK how, just something where the two BAMF older ladies meet and exchange fondly tales of 'their boys' and their antics.

Surprise Casanova

(Anonymous) 2012-03-21 06:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin is undoubtably god-awful at flirting with women. Stuttering, tongue-tied, babbling on random subjects in the hope at some point his face will stop resembling a plum tomato. That kind of bad.

But men? It turns out, much to the surprise of Douglas and Carolyn (not Arthur: he always knew Skip was secretly brilliant), that Martin is very, very good at flirting with men.

Maybe it's to try and wrangle them out of a sticky situation, or maybe they just catch him pulling the moves at Fitton's local, just something with smooth!confidant!Martin.
