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.

Martin is in-love with Douglas. Douglas is in-love with Martin. There's just one thing, though: Martin is transgender and he doesn't know how Douglas will react, seeing as how Douglas only seemed to be interested in cisgender woman, never mind cis men (or trans men, for that matter).

Douglas, as it happens, is absolutely fine (IT'S ALL FINE!) with it. Maybe he's actually been with a whole spectrum of people in his life.

Anon doesn't care if it turns out sappy or smutty or both or whatever! So long as it is happy after Martin's (understandable) panic and uncertainty. After a horrible week Anon would love something positive with a trans!Martin.

[identity profile] 2012-05-02 11:33 am (UTC)(link)
Oooh, mindreader, I was thinking about this last night. I wish I had a greater understanding of how a transgendered person might feel if they were Martin so I could write this. I worry about writing something completely accidently ignorant.

I heartily second this, I love stories about acceptance in whatever shape or form they come in, gives me the warm tingles. Double tingles for acceptance and lovin' ;)

Martin has the most sensitive gag reflex in the history of gag reflexes, sometimes he manages to set it off while brushing his teeth. This is why he never attempts to flirt with anyone - he feels it would be unfair since he's afraid he wouldn't be able to satisfy his partner.
He and Douglas slowly fall in love and start a relationship. Martin gets more and more nervous every day, torn between wanting to tell Douglas about his 'defect' and keeping quiet not to scare Douglas away.
One day, when things get heated, Martin makes a brave attempt at giving Douglas a blowjob. It does not go well.

(I'd prefer no actual throwing up, ummm.)

Martin really is the Ghost in the Attic.

(Anonymous) 2012-05-02 07:36 am (UTC)(link)
Martin really is the 'ghost in the attic'. He has been ever since not long after he passed his CPU. He haunts the attic he stayed in while alive and studying, and Carolyn was the first person to see him in a very long time. He's only really 'alive' in and around Gerti now; but the more he's been with them, the more 'alive' he gets. But it does explain why his first runs were so bumpy.

It wasn't suicide, though. He knows he's dead by now, but sometimes forgets.

Anyone want to take me up on this?

Tiny Dialogue Prompt

Martin/Carolyn/Herc(I can't really see Arthur but if you can, have at it): My god... I'm glad we're on the same side Douglas, because you would be an utterly terrifying enemy.

One day after work, Martin and Douglas go home together. They're not in a relationship, they didn't discuss it earlier - it just feels right for Martin to get into the shiny Lexus instead of his old van. They have dinner together, snuggle on the sofa while watching TV and bicker over what to watch next. When it's time for bed, Douglas lends Martin a pair of pajamas, kisses him on the forehead and they sleep together, more comfortable than ever.

So hopefully many of you will know of the volcano in Iceland that disrupted air travel a couple of years ago because of the huge ash clouds it produced? If no its very hard to pronounce it's called Ejyahfjallahjokull (said: eye-yah fy-ah yoke-ull) not that you need to know that (but as a geography student i do so basically i'm rambling)
My Prompt: the MJN crew are stuck somewhere around the world meaning they are standed like everyone else because of an ash cloud. The rest of their troubles apart from that is up to you! You can make it slash-y, fluff or not at all if you feel like. Just go crazy! ~B~

I don't know what to say...

(Anonymous) 2012-05-02 06:31 pm (UTC)(link)
So my sister just recently check herself into a hospital for suicide surveillance or something (I don't really know, no one is saying). I'm really glad she did that instead of something else, but when she rang earlier I really didn't know what to say in case I made it worse.

But if someone could write someone coming back to work after a suicide attempt, or suffering from depression and another character really not knowing what to say and trying to be 'overly' normal but then its alright because character A doesn't mind, they're just happy to be back?
Sorry, cathartic prompt is selfish and cathartic.

I've suddenly been overcome by the desire to see Douglas, Martin and Arthur in the snarkiest, fluffiest, most utterly ridiculous threesome ever.

Slices of life stuff would be absolutely perfect - little scenes of them being domestic, whiling away hours spent on stand-by, cuddling up on cold evenings. Sexy times or not is up to the author, I really don't mind.

RTYIs also welcome - if this exists and I haven't found it, I'd love to be directed that way.

Reference to past dub-con

(Anonymous) 2012-05-02 07:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin's past relationships, though okay, were not the greatest. Especially with sex. His partners were always too rough, too under-lubed, and Martin always walked away in pain. He thought this was normal.

When he begins his relationship with Douglas, he's surprised to find that sex is quite pleasurable. He's so used to bite marks, and rough hair pulling, this kind love making actually confuses him.

M/A clubbing

(Anonymous) 2012-05-02 08:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin usually sees Arthur in his (rather unflattering) steward's uniform and a silly hat, with wild hair and generally looking scruffy.
One time, they end up in a hostel located next to a night club, and since the noise makes it impossible to sleep, Martin, Arthur and Douglas decide to go clubbing.
Arthur turns up in a tight silk shirt and leather pants.
Martin is very impressed.

(Anonymous) 2012-05-02 08:22 pm (UTC)(link)
In Ottery St. Mary, Douglas is without Martin, just with Arthur. Logically, this means that sometimes it's just Marin and Arthur. What do these flights look like?

Arthur doesn't like his second cousin Kieron. It's not that he doesn't want to dislike him, he's tried, he really has, but the thing is: Kieron is horrible. He's smart, yeah, but with it, he's really smug, and both he and his father - Ruth's son and Arthur's cousin - have mocked Arthur in the past. In fact, it would appear that this had a lot to do with Ruth and Carolyn's falling-out in the first place.

Roll with it, have the others comforting Arthur in some way. :)
