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.

Parental Martin

(Anonymous) 2012-05-14 01:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin is left with his baby (his gf died in childbirth, or accident, or simply left him for another man, -- you decide).

He vows to be a stronger man for his son (who's named Benedict Crieff in my head, but you can rename him as you like!)

extra love if you can spin it to be a cabinlock story (perhaps sherlock or mycroft came to check him out, or something..)

Douglas grew a beard

Title says it all. Martin loves it; can't help but run his fingers over it and nuzzle his first officer's face again and again. Fluffy or smutty ;)

Nobody likes Martin

(Anonymous) 2012-05-14 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin comes under the impression that nobody likes him. It's not that hard of a conclusion to come to, given the way Douglas treats him, how Carolyn treats him and Arthur is... Arthur. So slowly but surely, Martin begins to withdrawn on himself, not talking unless talked to, turning down after-work hangouts thinking they're just inviting him because it's polite.

Socially awkward!Martin becomes even more socially awkward. Cue aftermath.

Omegaverse threesome

(Anonymous) 2012-05-15 02:59 am (UTC)(link)
Somewhat inspired by a discussion on an earlier part of the meme...

Experienced!Omega! Douglas shows Inexperienced!Omega!Martin the ropes, with help from an extremely enthusiatic Alpha!Arthur. Whether one or both of them is in heat is up to you.

Bonus for Douglas using his medical schooling to describe things to Martin during sex, giving precise details about what's going on internally.

Due to being exposed to some unknown chemical, Douglas and Martin are forced to spend a week in a decontamination room. With only each other for company and word games are being quickly dried up, how long does it take before these two start killing each other?

Or making out. Your choice. =)

Martin doesn't date because he's a recovering sex addict and he doesn't want to risk falling back into his old habits.

...but then he falls in love with (male of your choice) and it becomes harder and harder to stop himself from acting on his feelings.

Toblerone crossiants

(Anonymous) 2012-05-15 02:40 pm (UTC)(link)
So, my local shop, just around the corner, sells, among other pastries and welcome breakfast fanfare: Toblerone crossiants, basically, triangular shaped crossiants with pieces of Toblerone inside them.

We know someone who'd like that, don't we? :)

Bonus if Arthur buys one for Martin, too, as a special treat.

Wizard of Odd

[identity profile] 2012-05-15 03:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Pulling this from the first kink meme:

"("We've never been in Kansas at all, Douglas.")

The Wizard of Oz flies MJN, or: Martin as the Cowardly Lion, Arthur as the Scarecrow, Douglas as the Tin Man, Carolyn's dog as Toto - which I guess makes Carolyn Dorothy, but I didn't dare say it directly because this Dorothy is a bit scary.

(Bonus points for Hester Macaulay as the Wicked Witch. :D )"

I think it's brilliant, but prolly went unfilled b/c it's a daunting prospect. However, lemme suggest you don't fill the entire movie. It's such an iconic film, you can pick a single scene or riff off of any theme and just write a few hundred words, or less, and we'll totally grasp your intention.

Also, remember, there's the books, the musical, The Wiz, the SciFi miniseries, the Judy movie, or a total AU of your choosing.

Also the conspiracy theories about Glinda pulling in Dorothy as her hit man to kill off the other two witches and procure the shoes for herself.

A replier pointed out: "Hee, loved how it fits everyone so perfectly. Douglas needs a heart, Arthurs needs a brain, Martin needs courage and Carolyn... has a dog and is a girl. LOL"

I say Mr. Birling for The Wizard.

Re: Wizard of Odd

[identity profile] 2012-05-15 03:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Blargh, I shoulda clarified: Since the first prompt wasn't filled, I meant to say, it might be easier to open up the setting to anywhere, not just on Gertie. Maybe fly Gertie INTO Oz, but then leave her? Or whatever. Just, don't restrict your story to taking place on the plane and in the air if you dont' want to.

genderswapped Martin please?

(Anonymous) 2012-05-15 06:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Fem!Martin (Martha!) is faced with an unexpected pregnancy, whether it's by a lousy boyfriend who left her weeks ago, a one-nighter in a foreign country, or even Douglas. She's in pretty fierce denial at first, and goes through a major crisis when the rest of MJN finally gets through to her (they knew since the very beginning). Even though the stark reality is that Martha cannot afford a baby by any means, she really, really wants to be a mum.

Whether he's the father or not, Douglas steps up.

There is one thing that Martin can do much, much better than Douglas: he is a very keen hand with needle and thread. That gold braid isn't glued onto the hat! Despite being old, his clothing is all in very good repair.

One day, he gets a chance to put his skills into use for MJN.

Re: Martin Can Sew

[personal profile] pink_dalek 2012-05-17 07:34 am (UTC)(link)
This plot bunny bit me right away, as I've been working on a sewing project of my own. Hope you like it! Although it made me laugh: apparently BC once went to a CP recording session with his trousers safety-pinned together.

It had not been a good day for Douglas. The usual Richardson luck had entirely deserted him in the clothing department. First the button had come off his trousers that morning as he dressed. Both of his other uniforms were out to be cleaned, so he put the button in one pocket like the woman who did repairs and alterations at the cleaners had told him and went looking for a safety pin in the small wooden box where he kept tie tacks and a few sets of cufflinks. At least his belt would hide it.
He’d caught his jacket sleeve on the way out of the Lexus, tearing half a row of gold braid off the left sleeve. Then he’d caught the edge of a trouser leg on his seat somehow when he’d returned to the flight deck from a quick trip to the lavatory. At least it had only ripped out a section of the seam. He still wasn’t entirely sure how he’d managed to tear his shirt pocket half off, but it had involved Arthur somehow, and that was explanation enough for him.
He straggled up to the hotel room he was sharing with Martin, feeling like the ragpicker’s child. It was hard to be a sky god with bits of his uniform falling off or held together with pins. Especially considering that his prissy little captain, leading the way up the dingy stairwell, was neatly put together as usual. Martin never seemed to have a torn or frayed bit of anything on his uniform; even his casual clothes, purchased at various charity shops, were always clean and well-cared-for, if a little faded, and it wasn’t like he had anyone at home to do it for him, or could afford to pay extra to have the cleaners take care of it.
Martin had his suitcase open on a luggage rack and his toiletries kit in the bathroom before he turned to look at Douglas, sprawled across one of the lumpy single beds. “Aren’t you going to mend your uniform? You have time before we have to meet Carolyn and Arthur for dinner.”
Douglas propped himself up on his elbows, a lock of hair falling across his eyes. “Mend my uniform?”
“The torn braid and pocket.”
He dropped back onto the bed. “I can hide the shirt under the jacket.”
“And the jacket?”
“I think I’ve got an extra safety pin somewhere.”
“You can’t go around with a safety pin holding the braid on your jacket!” Martin sounded scandalized. “Your uniform reflects the dignity of your profession. How can the passengers feel confident putting their trust in a pilot who—“
“Nobody will notice a safety pin or two. I’ll have it repaired when we get home. The cleaners take care of repairs. Fifteen quid or so, good as new.”
“Fifteen quid! That’s highway robbery! Haven’t you at least got a mending kit with you for emergencies?”
“No, Suzy Homemaker, I haven’t.”
A pointed sigh from somewhere near Martin’s suitcase, then footsteps and the faint creak of the other bed as he sat down. “Hand them over.”
Douglas deigned to open one eye. “What?”
“Your jacket and shirt.”
Douglas opened the other eye and focused. Martin had opened an Altoids tin full of sewing supplies and was taking out a needle and small cards wound with thread in white, gold, and dark navy blue.
“You know how to sew?”
“Of course; mending at least. Traveling as much as we do, it’s a necessity. Besides, I’ve scored some deep discounts at charity shops for otherwise really nice things that just needed a bit of repair.” Martin had threaded the needle with gold thread, and held out his hand. “Jacket.”
Douglas sat up and slipped off his jacket, handing it over. Martin’s long slender fingers deftly stitched the length of braid back into place, tied off the thread, and cut it with a tiny pair of scissors. Then he started on the pocket, which took a little longer. When he handed it back, the side that had been torn was repaired with tiny, even stitches.
Douglas held it under the bedside light. “How did you do that? I can barely tell your stitches from the machine ones on the rest of the pocket.”
Martin shrugged. “Experience. Do you want me to fix that seam on your trousers?”
“Yes, please.” Douglas stepped into the bathroom to change into a lightweight jumper and khakis for dinner, then handed over the trousers.
Martin stifled a laugh at the safety pin, but couldn’t manage to hide a grin. “How long have you been running around with your trousers pinned together?”
“Just today,” Douglas answered, nettled. “The button popped off as I was dressing this morning. And no, it’s not that the waistband’s too tight.”
“Where’s the button?”
“Right front pocket.”
Martin sewed the button back in place, then carefully repaired the side of the trouser leg. The hem hadn’t been damaged, just four or five inches of the seam above it had split. “You were certainly accident-prone today.” After cutting the last bit of thread, he checked his handiwork, then put away his sewing tools and returned the tin to his suitcase as Douglas put his uniform in the closet.
He changed into jeans and a button-down shirt in the bathroom and put away his own uniform, finishing just as Arthur knocked on the door. “Ready for dinner, chaps?” he called.
As they left the hotel room, Martin turned to Douglas. “So, my spot of mending saved you about fifteen pounds?”
Martin gave him a surprisingly sly grin. “You can pay for my dinner, then.”

Unexpected pregnacy

(Anonymous) 2012-05-16 12:47 am (UTC)(link)
When Douglas "started early," he got a girl pregnant. Being young, he panicked and ran away. It was a move he always regreted to this day.

Martin invites the MJN crew to his family shindig. Everyone is having a good time. Arthur is great with Martin's nieces and nephews, Carolyn is giving business advice to his aunts and uncles, and Douglas is charming Simon and Caitlin.

Martin's mother comes to the party late due to traffic. She sees Douglas. "YOU!"

Douglas'' mouth falls open. "Diana?"

So Douglas is Martin's bio dad. Cue Martin being bewildered, finding out his dad was not his dad, and now knowing Douglas ran out on his mum.

Dark!Diego (TW for non-con)

Everyone seems to think that Diego was great and would be a perfect match for Martin. But what if there was a different side to him not seen in the episode. One flight takes MJN back to Johannesburg, were Diego then kidnaps Martin and takes him to a secret hideout to do nasty things to him. Douglas and Arthur know that Martin was with Diego just before he disappeared, but don't know where they went. Further developments are up to the author.

Sex pollen floats into the flight deck, for some reason. Reasons optional.

Bro code

(Anonymous) 2012-05-16 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
Martin and Douglas end up being epic bros. But someone points out that Douglas would have never been friends - let alone bros- with Martin in the past. What changed?

Douglas realizes this is true. So instead of hanging out with Martin, Douglas decides he should try hanging out with his other, 'cool' friends.

He ends up being bored out of his mind.

By my count, ___ is far more the virgin of the group than Arthur

[identity profile] 2012-05-16 06:57 am (UTC)(link)
The boys get to drunken or pot-addled locker room talk, and get into one of those slumber party games like "Never have I ever." It is revealed that Arthur is actually far more technically experienced (however the writer wants to qualify/quantify that) than either Douglas or Martin.

And if you want to include Carolyn in this little game, well. You deserve all the cheese plates.

tl;dr: Arthur wins a game of Never Have I Ever (or similar truth-telling game).

Possibly RTYI

Shameless self pimp but this might float your boat until you get a fill that's more spot on. It's called A to Z and Arthur is more than a little technically experienced ;)

And how shall you be stowing your baby?

[identity profile] 2012-05-16 07:04 am (UTC)(link)
From the tumblr confessions meme: "I'd love an episode with a baby on board."

Me too.

So many ways to do this!

A precocious toddler driving Carolyn mad with questions?

An unattended minor?

A baby left on the flight or in the office and no parent apparent? (This your opportunity to do parent!Martin, cumberbitches.)

A 5-year-old genius whose got his Sicilian mobster father wrapped around her finger?

My little ponies to manual

[identity profile] 2012-05-16 07:09 am (UTC)(link)
(Inspired by the baby on board meme, but I thought this was different enough to stand on its own.)

Douglas brings his 11-year-old daughter to work for a tour. For some reason -- althought this was not his intention -- he is forced to take off with her on the plane (maybe she stows away?). And then Catastrophe of the small or large type occurs.

Anything from a pissed off ex-wife, to the plane diverting somewhere not child safe, to an actual disaster.

I think it'd be cute if she stows away in one of the cupboards and one of the guys finds her.

MJN are stuck on a tiny uninhabited island somewhere in the middle of the ocean. Arthur thinks it's brilliant. His opinion is not popular.

Gerti is broken, the radio is down and, unsurprisingly, their mobiles have no singnal. Herc may or may not be with them, same with any passengers they may or may not have had on board.

Gen, slash or het, choice (or absence) of pairings up to the filler :) I'm a huge fan of Martin/Douglas, but no pressure

Minifill: Day 25

[identity profile] 2012-05-16 06:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Hi Anon! This is really short but I had this little thought pop into my head when I read the prompt. It's just a moment in their crisis detailing why Arthur's so optimistic.

Day 25

He hadn't cried. Not once. Martin had cried the first night, he was sure it was his fault. Carolyn had snuck off for a private weep after the third day of trying, and failing, to fix the radio and the GPS. Douglas made it ten days before he realised he'd missed his daughter's birthday the day before and hadn't noticed. Arthur though? He hadn't cried.

Arthur was used to always having the least important job. The job still needed doing though, that was important, but it really wasn't worth having a steward if you didn't have pilots and someone who owned a plane. Even now he kept to those little jobs like collecting and organising the wood and keeping it dry, keeping the fire going, foraging for food and working on making a net for when his Mum had finished trying to make a boat with Douglas. Martin kept working on making some form of radio signal. It was best Martin kept inside Gertie during the day after getting heatstroke and nasty burns on their fifth day. At least Arthur was good at the little things that kept everyone going.

There was one thing Arthur knew was important though. No one was going to give up. Not on his watch. If he kept smiling and kept everyone thinking positive things, then they'd be ok. A little cry was ok but they had to keep trying. Douglas was bound to think of something clever and Martin knew everything there was to know about planes and wiring. If Arthur was going to be stranded with anyone in the world he'd pick his mum, Douglas and Skip so it wasn't all bad. He had his job to do and he'll do it well.

No, he wouldn't cry, not tonight.


I really hoped this scratched your itch a little. Don't let this be the only fill, folks!

Inspired by the funny comic book, Chew.

The reason why Martin doesn' eat that much? Because he's a cibopathic. That means when he bites into a apple, he can 'see' where that apple was from, what chemicals it was sprayed on with, how it got plucked and then sent to the gorcery store.

When he bites into a piece of meat, he can 'see' the life of that animal, from the moment it was born, raised, and then taken to the slaughter house, slaughtered, warpped in plastic to be sent to the store.

It applies to humans too. If he swallows a drop of blood, or takes more than blood, he can 'see' that person's life and all their secrets.
