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.

Douglas has taken up his smuggling antics again, only this time he has filled the flight deck with something Martin happens to be allergic to (bonus points for something ridiculous or hard to hide). No one realises until after take off. Cue Martin being sneezy and miserable, Arthur being well-meaning but useless, and Douglas and Carolyn being their usual snarky selves (but a bit concerned too).

“Right. You have ten minutes to...to...to ex...aACHOO...plain yourself.”

“I do rather think that you are blowing this out of all proportion.”

“Out of all...Douglas, there is a horse on the flight deck!”

“Actually, as it is only about 31 inches high, it is in fact a pony.”

“DOUGLAS!”

“Honestly Martin, who is going to know.”

“ACHOO”

“Arthur is too busy promoting his new type of bread and butter pudding to come onto the flight deck, and Carolyn is too busy keeping Arthur’s bread and butter pudding away from the passengers to come into the flight deck. It’s just us, and Marteen."

“Marteen?”

“Well I had to call her something. Why is your eye watering?”

“It’s a perfectly logical reaction. There is a horse on my flight deck.”

“Pony.”

“DO I LOOK LIKE I CARE!”

“Yes.”

"ACHOO"

Being Human

(Anonymous) 2012-02-15 11:38 am (UTC)(link)
Carolyn and Arthur haunt the house that Gordon killed them in. Carolyn knows that Gordon murdered them - Arthur thinks he fell down the stairs by accident.

Gordon is letting the house to two blokes who work at the local airfield - unbeknownst to him, Douglas Richardson is a century-old vampire, and Martin Crieff, with his weird scars, is actually a werewolf.

Basically, I want a Being Human crossover. Come on, Martin is just as adorable as George, and Douglas would be an amazingly sassy vampire.

Re: Being Human

(Anonymous) 2012-02-15 12:14 pm (UTC)(link)
This could be awesome. I'm seeing them getting stranded somewhere on a full moon and Martin having a fully-fledged freakout.

"A house containing Arthur is very difficult to mistake for an empty house."

(Anonymous) 2012-02-15 04:27 pm (UTC)(link)
What features of the house make it so obvious that there is an Arthur in it?
Does he stick his pictures up on the fridge? Does he have really loud all night Doctor Who marathons? Does he introduce himself to everyone that Carolyn brings home, enthusiastically? Does he still wake Carolyn up when he has a nightmare?
Anything around this quote could be really funny, thank you

Legos everywhere, constantly a jelly setting in the fridge (even though no one actually likes jelly), if he doesn't see Carolyn every couple of hours, he'll call her to check where she is, even if she's just downstairs... Oh, and you should see the Christmas decorations.

Every fandom has it...

...so do we have any hypnosis fic yet? And if not, would someone like to write some? Purely for the sake of completeness, of course...

Are MJN flying a show hypnotist to his next performance? Does one of the crew find a magic crystal and discover its powers during a long and boring flight over Russia?

I'd rather see hilarious hi-jinks than darkfic or porn, but really I just want hypnosis and if anyone can write (or rec) anything I'd be very happy ok thanks.

(Anonymous) 2012-02-15 07:11 pm (UTC)(link)
Somehow, Douglas finds out that Martin has recently taken up with one of his former Air England co-pilots. The one who's such a stereotypical skeezy (wo)manizer that Douglas wouldn't be surprised if he had literal notches in his headboard. Martin, of course, takes his attempts to break them up as an indication that Douglas either hates Martin or doesn't want anyone else to be happy if he isn't. (Or both). Douglas, meanwhile, thinks he has Martin's emotional health at interest. Until he realizes that if Martin is going to be sleeping with an older, (wo)manizing pilot, it ought to be him.

(I would be equally pleased to see this filled with fem!Martin, if that's your thing. Also, why is there no easy term that conceptualizes "womanizer" but for a gay man?)

Song Prompt - Martin

[personal profile] atlantisgallifrey 2012-02-15 08:20 pm (UTC)(link)
I was iTunes, listening to music when 'Coming Around' by Christopher Dallman and 'Someday Came Today' by Chris Pine played back-to-back. So here's the idea I came up with:

Either Martin gets a better job or MJN gets enough money to not only pay him, but pay him quite well, fix GERT-I, hire new pilots, the whole lot. Around this time, Martin gets a girlfriend (Molly Hooper, anyone?) and things are, as Arthur would say, BRILLIANT. He has the girl, the house, the job, the car, the whole kit and caboodle. Basically, he gets the life he always wanted and gets to be the man he wants to be. This is sort of about Martin getting his confidence and getting his 'happily ever after'.

Quotes from the songs, mentions of them, or lyrics for each section of the story would be greatly appreciated, but are not necessary.

One day, Martin doesn't come into work.

I don't care where you go with this (angsty hurt/comfort like kidnap or hospitalization, or something romantic like a spontaneous date or sleeping in with his secret lover), just literally run with this.

Tiny Fill (Martin/Henry Knight)

(Anonymous) 2012-02-16 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
A "mental health day" is what Henry calls it. Carolyn will call it "skiving". Martin just thinks it's heaven. After all, who wouldn't want to spend a day somewhere as beautiful as Dartmoor? Henry insists on taking Martin to all of the best spots, buying him lunch in the pub, and showing him off to all of the people who ever looked down on Henry.

"This is my boyfriend, Martin," Henry tells everyone with a proud smile, "He's an airline captain."

Everyone looks at Martin appraisingly and (for the most part) nod approvingly. Then they leave the 'lovebirds' alone to continue their day.

As night falls, they go back to Henry's massive house and Martin allows himself to check his phone. There are nine text messages from Carolyn, all complaining about how Martin is supposed to be the responsible one and accusing him of setting a terrible example for Douglas. Martin just deletes the messages and lets Henry take him to bed.

What if Martin Crieff is a browncoat.
Because you know he'd love firefly, a show about an unlikely crew of a spaceship having adventure seems like something he'd find relatable to some extent
not to mention he probably has a decent amount of hero worship for Malcolm
I bet Douglass would tease him mercilessly even though he's never seen the show. Arthur would just think it's brilliant.

Or, alternatively, a fusion fic wouldn't be too bad with the crew of MJN air in the universe Firefly sets up.

I'm not picky.

Based on something that happened to me earlier today:

Martin finds out that someone he used to quite fancy (but never had the nerve/time/whatever to ask on a date) has recently gotten married and is expecting their first child. It's surprisingly upsetting. Then, he starts thinking about it and realises that most of the people he's known over the years are getting married and having children, have bought houses, and are at least minimally successful. It makes him sit down and really look at his life, maybe wonder if he's made the right choices.

BONUS if he realises that working at MJN Air with Douglas, Arthur, and Carolyn is exactly where he wants to be.

And apparently I am not happy unless I have a prompt on each page *lol*

On Arthur's irresistible insistence, the MJN boys go to give blood. But Martin is turned away because he is aneimic.

This makes Douglas feel...concerned.

D/M Douglas' daughter visits them

Douglas/Martin established relationship

Douglas' daughter comes over to spend the weekend with her father. Cue nervous Martin.

FILL: sort of mini-fic

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 12:13 am (UTC)(link)


"But Martin, you've met her before."

"Yes, but that was before."

"Hmmm. Before."

"Yes! You know. Before!" Martin gestured wildly between him and Douglas.

"Hmmm. It's no use, Martin. I know you can talk. I'm pretty sure I've heard you order coffee once and I am definitely sure I heard you cry out my name this morning while I was f..."

"DOUGLAS! Yes, yes, yes, alright. Keep your voice down!"

"Martin. You are aware she is not even here yet and that it is therefore quite impossible for her to walk in on us, if that's what's bothering you."

"OH GOD."

"Ah. New problems arise, I see."

*Martin makes that funny noise with his throath again*


_____



"You think she'll like me?"

"Martiiin."

"I am serious, Douglas! What if she can't stand me, what if - "

"She won't like you." Douglas made his way through -quite frankly- a mountain of balloons and garlands towards his lover. Or more precisely, to the cake on the table behind his lover.

"Oh God."

"She'll love you, just like I do. She's got her mother's looks and her father's heart, bless her. And intelligence, charm, wit and wisdom. And bravery. Oh, and good looks." He sneaked his hand behind Martin's back and was about to dip his finger into the cake's icing.

"Might not want to do that. Arthur's recipe."

"Ah. I must say trying to poison her might not be such a good start." he dipped his finger in anyway and brought it to his mounth. "But we Richardsons are nothing if not very very lucky. Hmmm." He kissed Martin on the lips. "Delicious."


______



Martin had nothing to worry about. When the door opened the child laughed and jumped into Douglas's arms. From the safety of her father's hug she gave Martin one long judging look and extended her arms out to him.

Martin accidentally dating Douglas's first daughter/son who's about Martin's age.

(Anonymous) 2012-02-16 09:24 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas: I'm old enough to be your father

Martin: Not unless you started really early.

Douglas: I did.


I can't remember where that dialogue is from, but if Douglas's first stag party was in 1977 and Martin is in his early 30s, it could be possible that Douglas's first marriage was one of those old fashioned "I knocked her up and now I have to marry her" marriages.

Now I would like to see a fic where Martin accidentally dating Douglas's daughter/son who's about his age. Bonus if there are flashbacks to Douglas's first marriage and when he found about his pregnant girlfriend. :)

AU- Arthur isn't just like a child, he is a child (I'd say around 7, but up to you). How does this change the MJN dynamics? Does it change them?

Douglas talks Martin into a bet in which the loser must be spanked, in an effort to embarrass Martin when he inevitably loses. However, they both end up enjoying it much more than they expected. Perhaps more overtly sexual bets then take place, loser gives the winner a blow job. Maybe this develops in to an unexpected relationship, romantic or purely sexual.

Martin is essentially the Space Core from Portal 2, only about flying.

“Flying, flying, wanna go flying, need to go fly!”

Mr. Crieff looked at his son in the hospital bed. The little eleven year old had been fighting off the congestion in his lungs for the last week. It had come to a particular head that morning, and they had decided that a trip to hospital was in order. He had been gasping and wheezing heavily by the time they got him there, so the paramedics had given him a shot of adrenalin to open him up. That hadn’t been quite enough, though. So they had given him another.

“I wanna fly. You’re gonna see me fly. You’re gonna look up. Thing in the sky. What’s it gonna be? Me, flying a plane. Flying. Flying. Flying. Fly fly fly fly. Gonna be a captain. Gonna wear a hat. Gonna fly.”

The doctors had said he would calm down soon enough. And if Mr. Crieff were being honest, he would have to admit this was not that entirely different from what Martin was like usually. Just a bit faster and a lot higher pitched.

“Dad, Dad, Dad, what’s your favorite thing about flying? (Mine is flying.) Go down a runway, engines full, pull up take-off gear, fly. Fly. Fly fly fly. In the air. Lots of air. Lots of cold air. Up when you’re flying. Flying in a plane. Being a captain. Of a plane. A flying plane. Not a plane for the ground. Air plane. Aeroplane. To fly in.”

At least he had stopped doing the different voices. Nothing was quite as strange, sad and annoying of a mix as a sick, hyper child talking to an imaginary plane.

You are the best ever at flying.

Speak of the devil.

“I’m the best! Yes. You’ve flown around the world fifty times. Only a captain could do that. I’m a captain? I’m the best captain? You are the best captain to ever fly. Everyone wants to ride in your aeroplane. Is it the best aeroplane? It’s the very best. All the other pilots are jealous.

Simon had suggested videotaping him, but Mr. Crieff had put a halt on that idea. He didn’t want this obsession following Martin for the rest of his life. He’d grow out of it soon enough, and things like this would just be silly reminders of the past.

“Fly flying flying, flown, in the air, flying, atmospheric pressure, bird strikes, altimeters, tail fins, flying, all needed to fly. Fly fly fly… Flying flying… Fly.”

His eyelids were starting to droop a bit; the adrenaline might just be wearing off, putting an end to the last four hours of monologue.

“Martin, how about you lie down and get under the covers. It’s been a long day.”

“Can I fly there?”

“Sure, you can fly to bed. Just lay back down.”

But apparently something grabbed his attention again, because the next thing he knew, Martin was standing on top of the bed, shouting.

“FLLLLLYYYYYYYYYY! YEEEEEE HAAAAA!”

…It was good they were already in a hospital. The doctors could take care of the broken nose from that swan dive fairly easily.

Any fic, any pairing, any crossover. Whatever you want. The challenge though, if you chose to accept it, is if you combine the first word of every sentence it have to make song lyrics from any song you happen to know. In order.

If you want to try for something longer the song can change from paragraph to paragraph or you can try to get an entire song in there.

I don't care how or why, but the members of the MJN crew are forced to mentally face their worst fears. As in, it's playing out in their heads, and they feel like it's actually happening, but it's not.

FILL: Terror at 30,000 Feet (Part 1/?)

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 12:13 am (UTC)(link)
What would Captain Mal Reynolds do?

The thought had been buzzing at the back of Martin's head for the past five minutes. Sometimes Mal Reynolds was replaced by James Kirk. Mostly he tried to block it out completely, because it wasn't helpful, because if there was one thing Martin Crieff was not it was the calm, steady, amused-by-danger Mal Reynolds. If there were two things he was not, the other was James Kirk.

Which was a shame, because they both would have probably known exactly what to do about being attacked by an invisible, seemingly omnipotent alien force.

Apparently there was a Sky God, and its name was not Douglas Richardson.

Said pilot was currently sitting back in his seat, looking slightly less irritatingly smug than usual. This did nothing but add to Martin's slowly-mounting terror.

The terror probably would have been less mounting and more sprinting up his spine to fry his brain and kill him, had it not been for the shock. Apparently, the inability to instantly process difficult situations could actually be pretty useful.

"So, um, anyway," continued the Voice - somewhere along the line, Martin's mind had given it a capital V, and he was too afraid of potential telepathy and vengeful tendencies to correct this (and why was he suddenly thinking in terms of spelling when there were clearly more important things to worry about? It must have been the shock again). "Anyway, I've, um, sort of left the assignment for the last minute - hah - you know how it is, right? And, well, it calls for four test subjects, and I know these aren't exactly laboratory conditions, but, well, there are four of you, and I don't have much time, so..."

The Voice trailed off. Martin glanced at Douglas, who was looking about as concerned by the situation as Martin had ever seen him concerned by any situation - that is to say, his eyebrows were both raised and he wasn't smirking.

Neither of the pilots said anything. Behind them, neither did their CEO or their steward.

The Voice cleared its Throat (All right, no, that's ridiculous.) and went on, slightly more confidently, "Right. So, er. I've got to observe... fear, so that should be easy enough. I'll just, um. Sort of borrow some stuff from your subconsciouses. Technically, I'm supposed to study you for a few weeks and figure out for myself what your worst fears are and then create the conditions, but I've only got, um. About five hours, actually, so. Besides, this is more controlled, isn't it? Because if I'd got the fears wrong, your reactions wouldn't be quite right. Less variables this way."

A worried glance moved from Martin to Douglas to Carolyn to Arthur, who turned it into an uncertain smile. An alien! it seemed to say. Or something. Brilliant! Except for the experimenting-on-us part.

Martin wondered if Arthur had accidentally drugged everyone's coffee. Or just his. Or if he'd finally just snapped.

And still the Voice continued.

"So, the fear part, that'll be easy enough. I'm also supposed to observe how you react to each other's fear, so I guess... I'll have to do each of you separately. Eurgh. I'm not gonna have much time to do the report. Maybe I'll just sort of - write it up as the experiment happens. Well. Not actually write it, but I don't know how else to explain it to you. This really isn't a very good experiment. So many variables. That's why I kept putting it off - I just kept worrying about it, and you know that pit you spiral into when just thinking about something you've got to do makes you feel all anxious and upset... Anyway. Best get started."

"Wait!" Martin yelped, thrown into speech by necessity and preservation instinct alone. "Wait, wait, I - Douglas and I are flying the plane! You can't - we can't be sent into some sort of waking nightmare, or - or 'react' to it happening to anyone else! We'll crash!"

"Oh, I can keep your plane going," the Voice reassured. "Actually, I've been controlling it for the last few minutes, just to get a feel for it before we started."

"But -"

"Look, I'm sorry, but I really don't have time to argue. Give me just a couple minutes to get inside all of your heads and find your worst fears, and then we'll get going."

Silence descended like a smothering wool blanket on the flight deck.

"That just happened for everyone else, too, right?" asked Douglas, and Martin nearly whimpered because Douglas sounded worried, which meant he wasn't somehow imagining things or blowing things out of proportion - something was actually really really wrong.

"Yes," Carolyn said faintly. "Assuming, of course, that by that you meant a disembodied Voice - " Martin noted with something like satisfaction that Carolyn pronounced it with a capital V, though he could just be projecting - "deciding that we look like the perfect set of lab rats."

"Wonderful," Martin muttered. He noticed that Douglas had taken his hands off the controls. Cautiously, he did the same.

GERTI continued on as normal.

"Arthur," Carolyn said, lightly backhanding her son's shoulder, "you're being mercifully quiet. Why?"

Arthur licked his lips. "It think It's in my head," he murmured.

The color drained collectively from everyone's faces.

Wordlessly, Carolyn led him out to the cabin, presumably to sit down.

Martin looked at Douglas.

Douglas looked positively green. "This isn't going to be fun," he said, swallowing audibly.

"Do you even have a worst fear?" Martin mused, speaking out loud before he could think better of it.

Douglas shot him a withering glare. "I'm a father, Martin. What do you think?"

"...Oh."

The USS-Gerti is the smaller, older, slightly more rubbish sister of the USS-Enterprise.

Spock!Martin is the long suffering first officer to Kirk!Douglas' Space God captain.

They are all Starfleet cadets.

Carolyn runs an intergalactic charter firm working on a commission basis for the Federation.

Arthur is an alien.

Dear me, do we not have any meta-fic on this meme? I don't mind whatever else you want to include (ships, headcanons, etc) - just this:

The MJN crew find the stories people write about them on the internet. Perhaps even on this very meme.

Carolyn wonders whether this can be turned into a money-making oppurtunity. Arthur simply thinks it's brilliant. Martin can't understand why he gets picked on and abused so much - and come to think of it, why everyone seems to think he's ginger and/or gay (whether to as they're true or not...). Douglas is proud his level of snark is able to translate onto the written word, but wonders why the hell everyone thinks he's having hot raunchy sex with his captain.
