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.


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 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.


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.

Molokai, presents (or the lack thereof)

(Anonymous) 2012-04-26 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
I was listening to Molokai again, and while I love like 97% of it, the part about Douglas scheming to get his hands on the bottle of wine keeps rubbing me the wrong way.

I suppose what annoys me most is how he doesn't even acknowledge that he practically snatched thousands of pounds from Martin (well, from Carolyn first, but he constantly steals from her anyway if we consider the Talisker ;) and doesn't feel the slightest bit self-conscious about it.

So, I'd like a fix-it (of sorts) that could go one of two ways:

- when they celebrate Christmas in Hawaii, Carolyn and Arthur find another "Old England style happy pub"-like thing, and Arthur persuades Martin to come with them, while Douglas snubs them and goes off for sushi and other posh things. Only to feel rather lonely and Scroogey when he meets up with them again and they're all giggly and happy.

- not only Arthur, but even Martin (despite his lack of money), and even Carolyn (despite her jadedness) have presents for all the other MJNers. Douglas is the only one empty-handed. Arthur is the one who manages to make him feel ashamed of himself - without even trying, because Arthur is pure 100% Arthur all the time.

If Martin Crieff had trained as an actor, he would have achieved A-List fame.
Both would have been inconsolably miserable."

After Rotterdam, Martin Davenport's cab business in Fitton got a lot busier thanks to Martin C referring any necessary cab calls to his number, and anytime Martin D had a fare asking about moving freight, well he knows a man with a van, doesn't he?

TLDR: A co-operation of Martins, please.

Douglas/Martin, height difference kink

(Anonymous) 2012-04-28 12:18 am (UTC)(link)
What subject says.

Maybe the reason Douglas pokes so much fun at Martin's height is to hide the fact that he's rather aroused by it.

Maybe the reason Martin is so annoyed at Douglas' jokes about his height is that Douglas towering over him turns him on.

Somehow (that's your job ;-) they figure out that their interests converge. (In bed. Or in the galley, on the floor, against a wall...)

Fic or art equally welcome!

Really really AU, D/s

(Anonymous) 2012-04-28 12:24 am (UTC)(link)
A conflation of AUs here- My Hotel Now, in one of those BDSM AUs where everyone's either a Dom or a Sub.

Carolyn doesn't own a plane, she owns a small (successful, luxury) hotel. Sub!Martin is an unclaimed single sub, one of several retained by the hotel as one of the 'ameneties' available for the comfort of visiting Doms.
Dom!Douglas is the concierge and de-facto Dom of all the hotel's resident subs.

Which would be fine, if Douglas didn't have the sneaking suspicion that he's rather developing *feelings* for Martin, and is having kind of a hard time keeping his equanimity while booking him out to be used and dominated by a string of total strangers. He might, just possibly, be letting it bleed into his judgement and he may, very slightly, be letting his jealousy guide his hand. Because the urge to discipline Martin until he remembers who his Dom *really* is, is growing by the hour.

Martin, meanwhile, doesn't actually mind his job, per se, though lately it's been losing its appeal. He knows he's half in love with Douglas even though engaging in an affair would be highly unprofessional. But the last few times a Dom has used him he's had to bite his lip to avoid calling out Douglas's name when he comes, and he can't stop thinking about the sharp-hot-delicious rightness of the feeling when he misbehaves for a client and Douglas is required to discipline him afterwards.

Someone at MJN is sick

[personal profile] c3mf 2012-04-28 01:48 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sick as a dog right now, and while suffering through the worse cold/aches ever would be fine and dandy, I know I have to get up and go to work come morning because my job doesn't give sick leave. I don't work, I don't get paid. Bleh.

So, that's the prompt. One of the crew (doesn't matter who) is sick, but they still do their job because it's a necessity that they do. Hell, even if you want to just do MJN sick crew h/c, I'd gladly go for that. Gah, obviously, this hell-cold has made me wishy-washy.

tl;dr: Someone at MJN is sick. They go to work anyway. What happens after that is totally up to the author.

The thing about Martin, is that he's really good at a LOT of things.

He's an excellent artist.
He runs super fast.
He knows how to dance.
He can read Braille.
He's fluent in Latin.

But all those skills mean for shit because he just wants to be a pilot. This is why his father thought being a pilot was such a waste when Martin could've easily made it to the Olympics, if he wanted.

Sherlock crossover! Again!

(Anonymous) 2012-04-28 04:49 am (UTC)(link)
Martin Crieff isn't real. He's just a very-detailed character Sherlock made up for a case once. That also meant Arthur, Douglas, Carolyn, everybody are also just characters in his head. Then one day Sherlock fell down and bumped his head.

When he woke up, he thinks he's Martin. Cue 'Martin' being utterly horrified to learn he's nothing more than a construct of imagination and that soon, Sherlock will come to his senses and delete him from history.

MJN is hired to fly a couple to their honeymoon destination. Their names are Marvin and Dougal, they're also a captain and a first officer (but on a ship), and they look quite a bit like Martin and Douglas.
Needless to say, it gets a bit awkward.

M/D slash or friendship, I'm cool with either!
