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.

Pre-Series, and assuming Douglas's second wife is the mother of his child.

Douglas has just come out the other side of divorce #2. He's either happy or content (or at least quietly resigned) about the divorce itself, but he's upset about his daughter - who is still quite young, maybe four or five. He knows he won't get custody, and really shouldn't have it anyway, because her mother has more money and is able to spend more time with her. But he's worried that her mother will try to make it difficult for him to see her, or talk to her, or have any sort of interaction with her at all, out of spite. So far, it seems that he's right. The lawyers haven't been in touch and he hasn't heard from his daughter in - days? Weeks?

One day, she gets ahold of a phone and calls him up. Wants to know where he's gone and why he doesn't want her, and what she's done wrong, and what will make him come back home? He stays calm throughout the conversation, but after they hang up he has something of a breakdown.

Which is when Carolyn walks in. Awkward but understanding comfort ensues.

TL;DR: Younger, freshly-divorced Douglas is upset about losing contact with his daughter. Carolyn, who knows what it's like to be worried about custody on top of everything else that comes with a nasty divorce, lends a sympathetic ear/shoulder/box of fragile things to break.

Genius!Arthur

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
Would love to see a story in which Arthur is secretly much more intelligent than everyone on the crew. (Perhaps he started hiding his high IQ when he was very young for fear that no one would like him?) He's still the sweet, lovable Arthur we all know, but he has been taking care of things behind the scenes to keep MJN afloat. Bonus points if he gets to save everyone from disaster/humiliation while keeping his intelligence a secret!

Martin forgets his hat

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
This image is just stuck in my head: Martin's hat sitting alone on the controls in the flight-deck. So how about a plane fire and during an evacuation (if they're landed) Martin forgets the step, "Captain dawns cap" before moving to assist the passengers.

Seriousness of the fire, and if there's any whump or h/c or just plain old constructive imagery is up to you! Thank-you~

I've taken a crack at this. I hope you like it! I'll put it up shortly, just as soon as I run one more pre-flight cross check....

Groundhog Day fic?

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 04:05 am (UTC)(link)
Do we have one already? Oh, well. I'm prompting one anyway.

Martin dies. Douglas is devastated, and goes to bed wishing he could have done something to save him. And guess what: he does! Except it happens again, and again, and again... (why yes, I do love it when Martin suffers). Until Douglas manages to save his captain, poor Martin just keeps on dying, everyday.

Gen, Douglas/Martin, Martin/Arthur, Martin/OC, it's all fine. Also, if you want to replace Douglas with another character, be my guest.

MMORPG MJN

[personal profile] atlantisgallifrey 2012-02-17 04:26 am (UTC)(link)
So i was reading a fic where Sherlock and John meet via an MMO like WOW. I also have become addicted to gaia over the past two days (granted, not an mmo, but still). What would it be like if the MJN was actually MQN: My Quest Now. Maybe carolyn started the Guild in order to keep herself occupied, maybe the guild is in charge of moving people and their gold/inventory to other parts of the MMO's world. Douglas is the experienced gamer who started with Nintendo in 1975 and has been with it ever since, Martin is the noob obsessed with the rules. ( he reads the guides all the time). I just really want them to all be gamer nerds...

In the months where Martin has it really, really bad - barely affording food, let alone the rent bad - he'll exchange sexual favors with his land lord to stay. This has been going on practically since he moved it.

Character of your choice (I'd prefer Douglas, Carolyn, or Herc) manages to find out before it breaks him.

I... can't be the only one whose mind jumped to sickeningly romantic love scene during this part in Limerick when Martin and Douglas kept going on about how "lovely and dark" the flight deck was after the sun finally set, right? I don't generally even ship those two. The dialogue was just...

Someone do something with this, please? Anything. Smut, fluff, non-shippy snark as one or both of them realizes what it sounds like, just. Anything. Please.

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 11:14 pm (UTC)(link)
The part I was transfixed on was when Douglas suggested they keep the cockpit dark, "Like jet fighters."

And Martin gives off this very boyish enthusiastic, "Yeah!" =3

Homeless as children

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 04:28 pm (UTC)(link)
I saw a prompt on the Sherlock one a while ago asking for homeless children versions of Sherlock and Mycroft.
So....a homeless member of MJN as a child? But with the rest of the crew still being the age they are now?
I don't know, I just think it could be a good idea

Re: Homeless as children

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 11:23 am (UTC)(link)
While I adore the idea of homeless!kid!Martin, I would love to see a street-wise, defensive kid!Carolyn, who somehow adopts the two pilots and a steward as her surrogate fathers.

Seconded!

I think there's been another one of these elsewhere on the meme: using one sentence, write a fill - any pairing, any context, whatever. The only catch is that you only have ten minutes to write it in. Up for the challenge?

Prompt: There is a knock at the door at three in the morning.

EVERYONE who meets Martin and Douglas either thinks they're a couple or thinks they should be. Our two pilots are utterly bemused. Martin is horribly awkward and denies it at every opportunity, while Douglas uses these presumptions to his advantage when he can and, when he can't, just ignores them.

Sherlock/Martin

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
So, I have this thing in my head:

Sherlock and Martin meet somehow and Sherlock is instantly "HOW DOES THIS WORK?!" and wants to learn everything about Martin. Martin is confused, but accepts the attention and maybe even starts to feel something for Sherlock. This somehow leads to sex. If a real relationship develops out of this, then that would be awesome.

Also, if you can, have it either be that no one cares that they look the same, or they act like it's almost expected. (I feel like that would be John's reaction...)

Re: Sherlock/Martin

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 11:51 pm (UTC)(link)
When you mentioned John's reaction, my first thought, I'm ashamed to say, was: John would definitely request a threesome.

Thank god for anon...

In any case, I'd love to see someone fill this, so seconded!

Martin Has Asperger's Syndrome

(Anonymous) 2012-02-17 11:49 pm (UTC)(link)
When he was younger, Martin was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. He finds it hard to form social relationships with other kids, collects and researches aeroplanes and flying with limited interest in other hobbies, and gets anxious if he doesn't have rules he can stick to so he knows what to do.

This transfers into his adult life. He never tells any of his MJN colleagues. Somehow (idk, maybe it's brought up in conversation, or maybe there's an asperger's child on board who gets upset with the change to his routines by flying, and Martin calms him down) the others find out.

Anything along these lines, just as AS!Martin is a personal headcanon, and as an aspie myself, would love to see something like this on the meme. :D

All of the MJN crew have mental health issues or other (mostly) non-physical issues. Mild ones, for the most part, but they are affected by them to differing degrees. They find out about them (maybe one of them is forced to tell by a turn of events and the others share to help).

I figured:
-Arthur= developmental delay/learning difficulties, although manic-depression with an extended manic period would be interesting.
-Martin= anxiety disorder? Or maybe autism/Aspergers (Kudos to the prompter above).
-Carolyn=depression, maybe? OCD (I might be wrong, but in Abu Dhabi, I'm pretty sure she's washing Snoopadoop at 6am...)
-Douglas = narcissistic personality disorder?

These are only suggestions, I leave the actual decisions in the very capable hands of the filler :)

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 11:21 am (UTC)(link)
I really like this idea, and I'd love to see what a filler could do with this. NPD would go with Douglas really well, and while I love fics in which Arthur has some sort of learning difficulty, for some reason, I can really see him developing something along the lines of Schizophrenia - (simply to see how it'd be handled, considering it is such a misunderstood illness and so often mistaken for the completely seperate disorder of split personality). He wouldn't be violent (as people with Schizophrenia rarely are in reality, regardless of how the media portrays it), but maybe would have trouble keeping his thoughts on one thing without drifting (thought disorder) and might simply try to ignore any auditory hallucinations if they popped up during flight.

I never noticed that about Abu Dhabi before, but OP has a point...

Kid!fic

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 11:11 am (UTC)(link)
C'mon, guys, we can't be taken seriously as a meme if we don't have at least a handful of kid!fic fills. There only seem to be a couple. :D

I'd love to see a fic, where somehow (lightening storm? radiation? one of Arthur's culinary creations?) Douglas, Martin and Arthur get turned into their four/five year old selves (Douglas probably being a bit older than the other two about eight/nine?). Carolyn, much to her dismay, has to look after not only her own child - who hasn't changed that much from adulthood to childhood - but Douglas and Martin as well - the latter who is far too shy and frightened whenever an adult comes near him, the former taking on the role of unofficial protector, and therefore not letting anyone near his captain.

Pure angsty fluff please - or really, just a lot of fluff. If we could get some nonplussed daddy!Herc in there to go with maternal!Carolyn, I would love you all forever.

Family

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 11:42 am (UTC)(link)
So correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems we have a lot of pairing fics, AUs, crossovers...but very little plain old family fluff. I mean, outside of MJN family.

So I'd like something of any/all of the crew with their outside families. Mother-son fluff with Arthur and Carolyn (maybe Herc thrown in too?) or father-daughter with Douglas and his daughter (because I actually think he'd be a pretty awesome Dad) would be best, but it's up to you.

It doesn't have to be at the exclusion of MJN; Douglas's daughter could be flying with them, or she could be meeting Douglas's new partner (M/D is fine, as is D/OC, D/Helena when they first got together, etc).

Birthdays, Christmases, holidays, trips to the zoo, story telling, Douglas giving his daughter's new boyfriend (hey, or girlfriend) the hurt-her-I'll-hurt-you talk...anything you like.

Just make it family-centred and fluffy! :)

TL; DR - Family and fluff, the rest is basically up to you.

Trigger warnings for past abuse

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 11:50 am (UTC)(link)
OK, there's a prompt a couple of pages back with the premise that one day Douglas hits Martin, and then is horrified about what he's done when he sees the look of betrayal on his face. While, I'd love to see that filled, my mind went a different direction - Martin doesn't look surprised at all. If anything, he looks like he was expecting it.

Douglas of course apologises, and Martin quickly forgives him (far too quickly for Douglas' peace of mind) and it all seems fine. Except Martin's quieter, faster to follow orders and doesn't talk back as much, stammering and tearfully apologetic when he gets things wrong. It's only when he flinches at Douglas that the first officer realises that it's far more serious than he had first thought.

Arthur has a bad day.

You know those days when everything irritates or upsets you, and it's all you can do not to bite people's heads off for asking if you're all right? One of those days.

Carolyn, of course, has seen this before, rare an occurrence though it is. Douglas and Martin can't help feeling that the world has tilted off its axis.

Up to you whether or not there's an actual reason for Arthur's bad mood. I would prefer him to cheer up by the end of the story/next day, but it's not a requirement.

Martin's Rent is Never Late

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 04:23 pm (UTC)(link)
We have a lot of fic where Martin gets evicted because he can't make rent, but it's my personal headcanon that Martin pays rent before he does anything else. New shoes? Hasn't bought any for four years. Food? That's what salvage grocers are for.

So can I get fic where someone else (can be MJN or a housemate) is worried that Martin might be having trouble making rent, and Martin is offended because he hasn't paid late in nine years?

May or may not be inspired by the fact that I once went a month w/o groceries and walked to work so that I could pay rent.

Martin Burglarized

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 06:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Because it's so good to be bad.

Someone breaks into the shared house (probably a former student) and robs the place while Martin's on a flight, leaving Martin's attic near empty along with several students' rooms. Aftermath when Martin comes home.

Do what you will.

Comment Box Fill! - Lucky, Really

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 08:26 pm (UTC)(link)
When the police asked Martin what exactly the burglar took, Martin realised that he was lucky. He had actually had all of his important things in his bag--his ancient laptop, iPod, uniform, a week's worth of clothing, and his battered old copy of Kill Devil Hill. The burglar had really only taken some of Martin's old books and DVDs.

It still felt wrong, though, like Martin had been violated in some strange way. It wasn't the loss of property, really. None of it had been very valuable, nor had it had any specific sentimental value. It was just the fact that Martin had never had much to his name, and now he had even less.

The students had it far worse, though. They had all had computers, gaming consoles, and textbooks that would likely cost thousands to replace. The monetary worth of what Martin had lost was far less. He hadn't even had any jewellery.

At first, the police had seemed suspicious of that fact, but the students had lept to Martin's defense. Martin was out of the country all the time, that wasn't out of the ordinary at all. It was one of the longer trips that MJN had ever been on, but Martin was always gone for close to a week if they were in America. Piss off, officer, Martin's a mate of ours!

Sitting there, in a house that had been picked clean by burglars, surrounded by shouting housemates, Martin thought that he was lucky, really.

Arthur the undercover sociologist/psychologist

(Anonymous) 2012-02-18 06:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Re-prompt from here: http://cabinpres-fic.livejournal.com/1249.html?thread=2388193#t2388193

Prompting after stumbling across this old article on the psychological screenings of pilots. (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/526706.stm)

Arthur isn't actually an air-dot steward - that's just his cover. After a string of aviation accidents involving small charter planes, A. Shappey, Ph.D, is commissioned to undertake a study to see whether small airline pilots are more likely to suffer from the types of psychological problems that could interfere with their ability to perform their jobs safely. And you'd be surprised how much easier it is to observe and study pilots in action when they think you're just some dim-witted man child who likes to toss apples form hand to hand.

I'd love if the fic is written in the format of Arthur's research notes or diary (inspired by errantcomment's brilliant fic series, Sherlock Holmes' Diary (http://errantcomment.livejournal.com/12228.html))! And I would imagine Arthur would cause all sorts of "accidents" to study exactly how Martin and Douglas handle stress while in 30,000ft above the ground. Up to the filler to determine genre (gen? crack? angst?) or whether or not there are any ships (perhaps during the course of his observations, Dr. Shappey notices a certain bond forming between M/D? idk, idk).
