PROMPT POST PART IV

Please see the most recent MOD NOTE


(updated 6 June)

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 is haunted by Martin

[personal profile] inkstained_scrivener 2012-04-22 01:04 pm (UTC)(link)
I tuned randomly onto the BBC's Radio 4 extra, and who do I hear but the dulcet tones of Roger Allam in 'Blithe Spirit', being haunted by the ghost only he can see of his ex wife. And, like all suprises involving the CP crew, it leads to prompting:

Martin dies. I don't know how, maybe it's a short-term terminal illness, or plane crash or suicide, whatever, it's sudden and unexpected, and the whole of MJN is left in shock. Douglas in particular feels guilty that the last words he said to Martin didn't really mean anything at all, and that he never got to tell his captain how much he quietly admired him.

And then Martin appears in his living room. Only Douglas can see him, and his captain is just as unplussed as he is as why he's turned up as a ghost in his first officer's house. Together, they have to figure out why Martin hasn't moved on/what actually led to his death (and successfully avoid Douglas getting sectioned for talking to himself...)

Yet another Alpha/Omega prompt

(Anonymous) 2012-04-22 05:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, again! Heheheheheh....

Martin is an Omega, but he doesn't know it. Nobody knows it because his natural glands that would send him into heat have been in stasis mode due to... something. So for a very long time, he thinks he's a Beta.

Something kick-starts his heat. He's at home, suddenly afraid to venture outside. He calls into work, tells Carolyn he can't make it due to sickness. Carolyn, thinking Martin is faking, sends Douglas over to collect him.

Martin, who doesn't want to get pregnant by the college kids or by Douglas, climbs out of his window and runs away. Cue epic chase scene.

Dyslexia H/C

[personal profile] kenizz 2012-04-22 09:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Backstory:So this Friday I had a substitute teacher instead of my usual history teacher. My usual teacher is really understanding about my dyslexia and never forces me to do anything, the substitute was however not so understanding, at all.

We were told to each read a piece from the history book and when it was my turn I told her I didn't want to. She told me it was mandatory so I said that I was dyslectic and therefore didn't have to read anything. Then she told me that dyslexia was no excuse and that I needed the practice.

I decided to just get on with it but because I had become nervous and self conscious during the little argument and my dyslexia had gone from barely noticeable to really obvious. When I was halfway through the piece my teacher told me to stop and someone else continued reading.

My friends told me I did okay but in my head it sounded like a first-grader trying to read. And as if that wasn't enough when class was over the teacher took me aside and told me I should have tried harder and that dyslexia was no reason for me to be lazy.

Long story short it was one of the most humiliating moments in my life and I've been feeling down the whole weekend so now I need some comfort.

Prompt: One of the crew members are dyslectic. This is found out and some rude bastard tells him/her that he/she should try harder/stop being so lazy/is stupid. Said person is really hurt because dyslexia leaves wounds that are easily ripped open. Rude bastard is out BAMF!ed by the rest of the crew and the hurt person is comforted.

Any pairings welcomed, no crossovers though.

[personal profile] anon_e_moss 2012-04-22 09:15 pm (UTC)(link)
If it has hurt you this much, then it might be worth telling someone else in the school, maybe your usual history teacher. I know nothing about teaching, but grasping at straws I imagine she thought her methods were encouraging you to 'push yourself' but obviously it backfired somewhat and she needs to be made aware of this.

Good things your friends were supportive. I'd listen to them if I were you.

*hugs*

Oh, seconded by the way.

I know starving!Martin has been done over and over again, but I don't think I'm alone when I say I just can't get enough.

This time, Martin is suffering from malnutrition *and* he gets gets mugged (perhaps while visiting NYC, but writer's prerogative). Douglas takes him to the hospital, where the doctors assume Martin's been victimized for a long time and look at Douglas with deep suspicion.

You take it from there!

Sexting

(Anonymous) 2012-04-23 01:39 am (UTC)(link)
A case of wrong number leads to Martin accidentally receiving some "explicit" photos and messages intended for the sender's online boyfriend. Martin tries to block them, but isn't good with mobiles. He eventually contacts the person... and is somehow encouraged to send pictures of his own.

This carries on for about a week or two, when one day Douglas finds Martin's forgotten phone on the flight deck floor, just as it receives a new message.

Do what you will from there.

young Martin/Douglas

(Anonymous) 2012-04-23 05:15 pm (UTC)(link)
A long, long time ago...

Young Martin Crieff decided to celebrate his 18th birthday by losing his virginity to the first suitable guy who'd want him. He got his wish with a very dashing (and very married) airline pilot with the beginning of an alcohol problem (whom we know as Douglas, although he didn't use his real name with Martin).

When they first meet at MJN, Martin remembers, Douglas doesn't. Until, of course, the subject comes up somehow...

It's an Arthur World after all.

(Anonymous) 2012-04-23 11:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Gerti is flying to Orlando Florida, and Arthur is determined on the 48 hour layover/standby to spend the entire time doing everything he possibly can at Disneyworld. He saves up for tickets for himself, and for Douglas and Martin, because "it wouldn't be the same, me just going by myself!"

But then he gets sick. He can barely get off the aeroplane to the hotel, he has to spend the money he'd saved up getting treatment in the US, and subsequently spends the entire 48 hours in the room, miserable but hiding it, and sick as a hundred dogs.

So Douglas and Martin pull another Molokai and bring Disneyworld to Arthur.

TLDR: H/C for sick Arthur, via Disneyworld writ small.

3 times Douglas hurt the ones he loved, and 1 time he made it better.

Today I was looking through a pile of poems made by 13 year olds. They were supposed to write a poem about the ocean and write the sentences into the shape of something that you would find under the sea. Students drew their poems in the shape of a fish, an octopus, a seahorse, etc. Then I saw that one student did their poem in the shape of an aeroplane. Maybe it started off life wanting to be an orca, but it definitely ended up an aeroplane.

This got me thinking about what Martin was like as a kid in school. He's been obsessed with planes his entire life, he's probably one of those students who would try to defend doing an ocean poem in the shape of a plane or have every single school project in school relate to flying in some way. I'd like some adorable kid!Martin at school being obsessed with aeroplanes.

Malcolm Tucker has to fly somewhere in a hurry and the only flight he can get on short notice is with MJN Air. He's already in a bad mood and now he's got the MJN crew to contend with. There will be tears before bedtime.

Bonus points for a really creative and epic curse-laden rant.

fictional amnesia, Martin/Douglas

(Anonymous) 2012-04-24 12:45 pm (UTC)(link)
I haven't read this trope in CP yet, and I would love to!

Martin gets hit with fic!amnesia (the kind where he forgets who he is, his family, his friends, but not how to do his job, his hobby, or who James Bond is, and he doesn't have any other health issues except perhaps headaches so he can be comforted by Douglas).

The client is going to be there in twenty minutes, Martin says he knows how to fly a Lockheed McDonnell, of course he does, even though he can't say where he learned and when, so Carolyn nags Douglas to go ahead with the flight...

Your choice whether they were already together (cue angst!) or they get together while Martin is this new and more confident amnesiac!Martin (cue angst!), as long as it ends well.

Oh, love this! Especially Martin being more confident without so much baggage weighing him down. Seconded.

Would someone mind showing me how Arthur handled going from drunk to plane-crashing-sober?

It's just, the way he says how that tends to sober one up makes me want to know. Plus how Arthur dealt under stress in Fitton (he did quite well in the end, if unconventionally). And I don't feel like I could do it justice. Please?

Martin's last day at MJN (crossover)

Martin gives his notice. This is his last flight.

Why? Because he's really Sherlock Holmes, he's killing the last of Moriarity's minions during the standby, and then he's going home to John.

Gimme all the angst you got.

Oh man, I read this and all I could think of was him telling them he was "finally going home" and them jumping to the assuption of suicide.

I might try to fill this... But it will probably turn out a bit more humorous than pure angst.
