Prompting Post V

Please see the most recent MOD NOTE and ADDENDUM

(updated 5 July)

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 and Douglas meet online (anywhere you can think of, but please don't make them My Little Pony enthusiasts, or something equally implausible?) and become really good friends without knowing their real identities.

Love this. Would be tricky to write but I guess they both have things they'd like to hide from. Douglas's divorce and fall from grace from captain to first officer, Martin being... Martin. Might make finding a non-idenfying topic to discuss easier.

Martin ends up with a bit of extra money, and even though he knows it's really irresponsible, he decides to spend it on a prostitute. He doesn't want sex - he just asks her to pretend that she loves him.

"What are you doing with your life?"

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 05:46 pm (UTC)(link)
Selfish and carthartic prompt is, well... selfish and carthartic.

Arthur gets upset when Kieron or someone else from Ruth's side of the family asks him exactly what he's doing with his life. He finds some sort of comfort and escape with the people who love him just the way he is.

If the filler wants to change it to Martin, that's fine.

Inspired by the prompt above.

Martin mentioned that he'd gotten the van while his siblings got money.
This obviously had to be done after the funeral when the lawyer/whatever they're called in Britain, read the family the will.

So let's get Martin going to the funeral and finding out that his father still wants him to become an electrician in death and the reason why Simon and Caitlyn got the money.

Shotgun Wedding

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 05:58 pm (UTC)(link)
One of Martin's housemates gets pregnant unexpectedly. She and Martin are friends, so she goes to him for comfort/advice but before she has a chance to decide what she wants to do, one of the others accidentally lets slip she's preggers in front of one of her family.

They are not happy.

She panics and names Martin as the father.

Martin, freaks out a little but then steps up.

And to everyone's surprise, they end up making it work and are ridiculously happy, even after the truth comes out.

Martin the virgin sacrifice (The Wicker Man xover)

[personal profile] basingstoke 2012-06-10 06:00 pm (UTC)(link)
Because this is what I thought a previous prompt was referring to...

Martin goes to Summerisle to pick up an important passenger for Carolyn, but when he gets there, nobody knows who he's talking about and everyone tells him to go home.

He's licensed by the Crown, he's there of his own free will, and they're pretty sure he's a virgin. They just need to make sure of that last one. Then the apple crop will perk up again. After all, it worked last time.

Arthur needs reassurance

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 06:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay, really sorry, but another carthartic prompt from I'm really sorry if this upsets anyone, but I need to get this out of my system.

Arthur - well, could be any of them, but this would work best with Arthur - thinks the world is brilliant, and a fun place to be. Then he finds out something terrible - something about his dad, maybe, or something about his mother and Aunt Ruth's falling-out, something to do with a friend on the airfield, something horrible that's happened locally - anything, it's up to the filler. Although it doesn't directly affect him, it shakes him and knocks him for six, as he's left questioning everything about the world. It's made all the worse when someone who doesn't understand - perhaps his father or his Aunt Ruth or someone else - tells him he "has to be a grown-up about it." He's devastated and starts to grow frightened that he's going to turn out to be a horrible person, because if the world really isn't as brilliant as he thought - then what's the point?

Martin and Douglas comfort him and show him the world's not all bad and that it's brilliant people like Arthur who make life worth living. Bonus, if they somehow manage to fit dancing out on the airfield late at night with a radio. (I'd like to go and dance about outside to take my mind off things, but it's raining).


(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 07:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin married Arthur some time ago, when he still was a lonely, desperate for recognition captain at MJN Air.
Now, he's found a new job in a more prestigious Airline, and he has what he always wanted; the crew adores him, his collegaues respect him, everyone recognizes he's the Captain at first glance, all the stewards and stewardesses would desperately bed him.
Arthur does not fit in his new, glamorous life anymore, right? I mean, he now deserves someone better than a man who still believes in unicorns, doesn't he?
Martin would tell you that you're wrong. Because, lonely as he was, he chose Arthur, he loves him, and he would never been half the man he is now thanks to his husband.

Inspired by a prompt above. I just would like to see some interaction between Tony Stark and Douglas.
Who would win a word game between them?
Sarcasm on both sides, snide comments, Tony trying to Douglas and vice-versa.
Martin gets an headache just trying to keep up with them.

life is but a dream

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 08:36 pm (UTC)(link)
MJN doesn't exist. Not Douglas, Arthur, Carolyn or Gerti. They're all something that Man with a Van/Odd-job Handyman Martin Crieff dreamed up after his seventh failure at trying for his pilot's licence put the final nail in his dreams of actually being a pilot.

Martin's aware it's all a fantasy, but it's starting to feel more real every day. He's not sure if he's going mad, or if being mad might be a better thing to be than being a failure who spends most of his waking and sleeping hours dreaming of being an - if he's honest - mediocre unpaid Captain of a tiny charter jet.

Then he starts to see things and people from his MJN fantasies in his waking working life, starts to get confused about whether he's driving a van or flying a plane, hears the voices of the people he made up as he's going about his day, and really starts to panic about his sanity.

TLDR: MJN doesn't exist except as a fantasy Martin dreamed up. Or does it?

Cabin Addresses

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 09:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh my. Three prompts in a single evening...
Inspired by my favourite episode which is Limerick.

Douglas is bored, bored-bored, booooooooooored during the flight from Hong Kong to Limerick, and Russia has never looked bigger.
"So, if anyone knows any card tricks, ghost stories, or would like to have some sex, please do make your way to the flight deck. Thank you".
Martin turns to his FO, a gleam in his eyes. "What if the person who would like to have some sex is already in the flight deck?"

Sex ensues.

Who wins the bet?

Martin's Song

[personal profile] cleo2010 2012-06-10 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm convinced there's a fic in this but I can't figure out how to do it.

Arthur hears 'Hand in my Pocket' by Alanis Morissette for the first time and is convinced someone has written a song about Martin. I was listening to the lyrics the other day 'I'm broke but I'm happy, I'm poor but I'm kind, I'm short but I'm healthy, yeah' and it just hit me that so much of it sounds like Martin's life. I won't post all the lyrics but it's worth listening to the song if you're not familiar with it.

I don't know how to make it work but I'm happy to share the song because Jagged Little Pill is one of the best albums ever.

D/M rough sex / a bit of manhandling

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 09:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin would never say no to tender and loving lovemaking after a long day of flying, but rough, hard sex is where the best orgasms are. Especially when Douglas doesn't ask Martin to flip over, spread his legs or change his position, but instead just positions him the way he wants and is not exactly gentle about it.

Friends fusion

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 10:34 pm (UTC)(link)
Inspired by an episode of "Friends" and by a fic I read in the Sherlock BBC meme (that I can't find anymore)...

Martin wants to propose to Douglas. He's never had a relationship, so what he knows, he's learned from TV Shows and movies. He wants the moment to be special, unique. They go to a fancy restaurant, where Douglas meets his ex, Helena. Martin is jealous, Douglas almost guesses what he's about to do, so, for lack of better and more intelligent options, Martin denies everything, vehemently, to the point that Doulgas is almost hurt and they are about to break up. Arthur saves the day, and they have the most romantic proposal ever.

Bear with me, i'm in a "fluffy" period, and I just need to read something like this.

Martin was right but no one listened, h/c

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
for once, Martin is right about something but no one listens to him.

No one is hurt, no damage done but after Douglas and Carolyn finish blowing him off, because hey, nothing bad actually happened, Martin just stops trying.

He mentions safety procedures once, in a lack-luster tone of voice, doesn't put himself forward in anyway and only plays word games to get Douglas to stop pestering him.

How do the crew convince him that in spite of everything, they do respect him?

Douglas' sister comes to visit, and while she loves him and will tear anyone to pieces who hurts him, she is of the opinion that Douglas needs the piss taken out of him on a regular basis or he becomes insufferable.

Which is why when she leaves, she gives Martin a secret weapon.
