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 saves Martin life. (You choose the harrowing near miss!) Martin is eternally grateful, but Douglas is like, "Whatever, it's cool."

Now Martin keeps trying to show his appreciation and Douglas is like, "Ooooookay, this is getting creepy..."

Blind Agreement

(Anonymous) 2012-05-05 04:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Ordinarily Martin & Douglas's relationship is full of bickering and contradictions. But in the throes of passion, Martin will agree to everything and anything Douglas says. Douglas makes increasingly outrageous and self-aggrandizing statements to test how far gone Martin is in lust.

Safeword (D/s)

(Anonymous) 2012-05-05 05:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas/Martin-
sub!Martin only ever seems to use his safeword when they have intimate, gentle vanilla sex.
He's fine with whatever kinks Douglas wants to throw at him, because physical vulnerability is a huge turn on for him. Emotional vulnerability however is a whole different issue, and Douglas making slow, sweet love to him feels like he's a little too open to getting his heart irreperably broken.

Comfort & happy resolutions are always adored.

They convince Martin to shave his, too.

Douglas is slowing becoming more and more unlikeable. He gets blisteringly angry at the smallest provocation (which Martin seems always to stumble upon), doesn't hang out when they're traveling, is sullen and moody and just not very nice to be around.

Turns out, he is ridiculously old-fashioned and doesn't believe in masturbation or one-night stands, so he has all this tension he's not been able to work out since Helena left. There's a reason he's a serial monogamist, after all. How this gets resolved is up to the filler.

Douglas Angst

(Anonymous) 2012-05-05 11:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas angst / h/c based on the line in Kate Bush's Running Up That Hill 'It's based on the 'If I only could, I'd make a deal with God and I'd get him to swap our places'

5 times Douglas wished he could swap places to help someone he loved- ie times when a parent / wife (one of them might have died rather than being divorced)/ child / Martin was seriously ill / hurt / dying and one time he did swap (taking a bullet, donating an organ, something along those lines)

Re: Douglas Angst

(Anonymous) 2012-05-06 01:41 am (UTC)(link)
Y'know, a discussion came up in the chatter area where almost everyone agreed that trying to write Douglas!Whump is really, really hard. This prompt is great because it can allow us to show vunerable!Douglas very easily. Even more, it doesn't have to fully focus on Martin. If I have time, I would definately like to fill this.

fake relationship

(Anonymous) 2012-05-06 03:03 pm (UTC)(link)
When Helena confessed she's been having an affair with the tai chi instructor, Douglas, not to be outdone, blurted out that he's been having one as well. And since he really loved Helena and would have never cheated on her, he had a rare moment of panic when she asked about his mistress... so he used the first name he could think of - Martin.
Some time later, the tai chi instructor (now Helena's fiance) hires MJN Air to fly them to their wedding destination (idk, he's a really rich tai chi instructor), unaware of the fact that her ex-husband is the pilot. When Douglas sees how happy they are together, he enlists Martin's very unwilling help to show them that he is better off without Helena as well.

I've no preference for whether Douglas and Martin end up together for real in the end :)

First time promping. If there IS something like that already around, I would appreciate a link, but I don't think I've seen it.

Anyone remembers "Dead Last"? (http://www.tv.com/shows/dead-last/)

The small, not really working band in their van that found an amulet?

I can't help but think that this could apply to Gerti's crew. Not a crossover, per se, but the crew (Arthur? We've had him seeing dead people before...) finds an amulet and brings it on board Gerti, activating it while on a cargo flight. Carolyn wouldn't be there (much like the managers isn't aware of the problem), just Arthur, Martin and Douglas.

Make it as angsty or as craky as you'd like; I don't care! Anything with that cross-over would make me happy as a clam!

Background: We know that some of the duty hours regulations are bent rather badly over at MJN, and it's been mentioned that there could be a problem if one of the pilots got sick; okay, then, what if Arthur somehow finds out just how bad it would be if they were caught breaking those regulations, or perhaps one of the pilots gets really bad flu (or food poisoning from a batch of much too surprising Surprising Rice)? Wouldn't he, being 'a big helper', really, really want to help?

Prompt: Arthur decides he really does need to learn to fly - at least enough to 'take the wheel' in a crisis or something - and finds a way to learn on his own (flight simulator or something like Martin practices on?). OR... Arthur wheedles and pushes and somehow talks/convinces/guilts one or both of the MJN's legitimate flyboys into teaching him. (My preference, to be honest)

Bonus: Turns out he's actually brilliant at it.

Seconded. One in the face to everyone who never thought he could.

Who needs porn when you have Roger Allam saying those things in your ear?

*BOOM* What was that? Oh yes those were just my knickers exploding into flames.

anything *I* say one time must be true

Douglas' lies become reality, as long as least one person believes them.

(For example, the goose shakes off its ruffled feathers and flies off in a huff, Martin's mother confesses to him that she had a brief affair with a French tourist... about nine months before Martin was born, that kind of thing.)

Yes, I'm calling for crack. :) (Doesn't mean you can't sneak some angst in it, but don't shy away from the crack!) But happy end, please.

OP: forgot to say: Douglas is *not* aware of the magic quality of his lies. At least not in the beginning. :)
