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.

Lobster impression

[identity profile] 2012-06-11 09:58 pm (UTC)(link)
What seemed to be a light tan last night when I got in bed turned out to be pinkish this morning and is now closer to "ready to eat lobster-red" than "a healthy dose of sunlight". :S I don't know why my skin always takes its time to tell me I was outside for too long. Now I can't reach one troublesome spot on my back with my after-sun lotion.

Can I have a Martin with the same problem but with Douglas there to very nicely apply aloe on his arms and back (and legs, and torso if you fancy a full body sunburn)? Mine doesn't hurt much but I wouldn't mind if moving was painful for Martin... Or cuddling to Douglas if that's what makes him feel better?

Of course if you want Douglas to get the sunburn while experimenting a nude beach and got the burn... everywhere, Martin always being so careful with sunblock because of his pale skin (a fact Douglas likes to make fun of) and Martin having to take care of a lovingly red Douglas... I can't say I mind!

D/M, please. Established or not.

The year they had a stopover somewhere in America during Halloween night was one they would never forget.

Option 1) Arthur + candy + costumes + Halloween = Arthursplosion.
Option 2) Spooks and ghosts and creepy things that they wish they could forget.
Option 3) An unholy combination, whereby everyone but Arthur is trapped and plagued by horrifying things, and Arthur saves everyone by cheerfulling the monsters away on the biggest sugar-high he's ever had.

Prefer no crossovers.

Martin and Douglas are in a mutually negotiated and mutually satisfactory, BDSM relationship BUT

it doesn't matter how long or how intense the scene, it doesn't matter how much Martin is trembling after, it doesn't matter how much Martin obviously needs it

He will not accept any sort of aftercare from Douglas. The one time Douglas tried to use his 'dom' voice to get Martin to stay, Martin made it clear that he would not accept it and if Douglas didn't like that, they could stop right now.

So after every scene, Martin gets up and leaves and Douglas is left wondering what he has to do to get Martin to trust him.

I don't know if this is acceptable practice or not, but I'd quite like a follow-up to this fill in part III

Particularly involving this statement from Douglas regarding Martin:

"Martin is a far better man than you give him credit for, and I am going to make it my mission to fix everything you broke in him"

Gen or slash is fine with me.

warning: suicide

(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
Something very bad happens for Douglas. He won't talk about it at all, just pushes on, going more quiet and distracted. Everyone worries. Then one day he comes in brimming with the old confidence. He says he's moving on with his life, he's gotten a job at Air England again and gives a month's notice at MJN.

Over the final month he works at MJN, he's unusually nice, letting Martin win the cheese tray, offering compliments freely, giving Arthur and Martin some of his most cherished possessions. Carolyn is bitter and acerbic, Arthur is sad, but happy that Douglas has got a new brilliant job, and so forth.

Martin is terrified, because he has the unshakeable feeling that there is no Air England job, and that when Douglas leaves MJN, he'll attempt suicide, and likely be successful. Douglas shuts down or redirects all attempts to discuss the matter, reverting to painful barbed insults, or getting angry if pushed.

Martin isn't wrong. Getting Douglas to talk to him about it rather than going through with it will be the hardest thing he's ever done.

TLDR: Douglas is suicidal. Only Martin sees it.

Martin had always worried about his sexual preferences (not only his homosexuality, but also his fantasies about being a sub) and never acted on them. On the contrary, he always tried not to think about them too much. Until one day, someone (maybe a therapist on a online forum?) suggests that keeping a written record of his fantasies might prove helpful to familiarise with them and stop feeling ashamed. Feeling rather hopeless, he decides to give it a try - and that’s how he realises that all his fantasies have Douglas in them. As he keeps writing he realises that he’s not only been attracted to his first officer for ages (that he had suspected), that he’s also quite in love with him. They have become very close, with Douglas being almost sweet at times, but it is understood that they’re just friends.

Then, one day, Martin gets completely drunk and Douglas has to bring him home. As the captain crashes on his bed and falls asleep at once, Douglas notices the open diary on the desk. He reads it, barely shifting position (and feeling utterly aroused), then takes a long look at Martin, puts the diary down, and walks away making up his mind to do something about it at the first opportunity.

Bonus points (LOTS of them) if Douglas already fancied Martin but had never realised Martin felt that way toward him.

Scream [TW: character death]

A serial killer creatively dispatches with people around the crew (perhaps some of Martin's students, Gordon Shappey, the Fitton ground crew, or one of Douglas' ex-wives). Then the crew members disappear one by one. What's going on? Who is the killer? Why?

Pairings, crossovers, and twists are great, but suspense and horror are key.

Thank you!

Martin *loves* when Douglas nuzzles lovingly at his neck, making him feel all warm, and fuzzy, and cared for (even better if there's also a hand job going on at the same time).

I don't really care how you decide to write it (EVERYTHING is welcome), but if anyone feels like writing something longer, I would love for them not to be an established couple, with Douglas accidentally finding out about Martin's soft spot (maybe while he's leaning over his shoulder?) and then proceeding to tease him mercilessly for a while (hence, tons of UST).



(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
Finding Martin's secret spot was like striking oil. You weren't looking for it and now that you found it, you were going to exploit it to the best of your abilities.

And Douglas was so good at exploiting things.

It was an accident, really, the way Douglas found it. He noticed a fly was buzzing around on the back of Martin's collar and decided to do a good deed and swat the little bugger away.

"Fly," he said as warning as he softly brushed his hand across the collar.

His finger had gently made contact with Martin's neck.

It was the tiniest of touches, no more than a tickle and yet Martin shuddered like someone just dropped an ice cube down his back.

Douglas was immensely amused. "What was that?" he asked as Martin pulled away. Martin was cupping his neck, red in the face and staring at Douglas wildly.

"Nothing!" he squeaked. "You startled me!"

Martin was not that good of a liar. Douglas grinned wickedly.

While it was painfully easy to tease Martin, finding his little spot was like stealing candy from a baby. Or Arthur.

All it took was a touch. Not even a touch, Douglas found.

If he blew on the back of Martin's neck, he would shudder.

If Douglas stroked that spot with his finger, Martin would arch his back, clenching his teeth.

Just to see what would happen, Douglas had grabbed that spot with two fingers. The result sent Martin into hysterics, giggling and laughing madly, desperate to get away.

Martin ended up ignoring him for the rest of the day, but Douglas counted it as a win, grinning wildly each time he caught sight of Martin's blush.

He should've known his ruthless teasing would come back and bite him on the behind.

Martin had taken to becoming so fiercely protective of his neck, he would hunch and flip his collar up each time he noticed Douglas was near. When that didn't work, he would wear scarves. Not a good idea considering it was June.

It was on such a day, when Martin miserably sat in the farthest corner, his cheeks red from the heat while Douglas sat smugly on the couch when it all went to hell.

Arthur came in bearing sandwiches from the local shops. "Here you go, chaps. They gave me a discount because the tomato made the bread a bit moist-"

Douglas unexpectedly flinched.

Arthur smiled guiltly. "Sorry, Douglas. I forgot."

Martin saw the flinch, his eyesbrows scrunched up confused. "Arthur, why did you apologize?"

"Oh, Douglas doesn't like the word, 'moist'. He says finds it gross."

Martin slowly grinned. "Oh, really?"

It was then Douglas realized his mistake. Unfortunately, it was much too late.

Volunteer work

(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 03:19 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas' daughter gets involved in her community doing volunteer work and loves it. When she comes to visit Douglas, she convinces him to take her out to an organization in Fitton. When they get there, Douglas is shocked to see Martin actively working. When questioned, Martin replies that helping others is an extremely rewarding pastime, and since he's so poor, the only thing he can give is himself. Then Martin helps Douglas get the life-changing experience that comes with volunteer work.
-organization is author's choice (homeless, at-risk kids, whatever)

Badass Protective... Martin?

(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 07:57 am (UTC)(link)
While Martin and Douglas are in a pub of dubious repute in another country, a brawl breaks out. Since Martin is small, was beaten up by a 14-year-old boy once and is very freaked out by the sudden violence, Douglas goes into protective mode, trying to usher them both out with a minimum of fuss.

But then Douglas catches a solid bash in the back of the head and goes down hard.

When he comes to, the brawl is still going on, but Martin is standing over him, swinging a pool cue and snarling like a rabid badger at anyone who gets near.

It's the most amazing thing Douglas has ever seen.

No established D/M at the start, but developments in any direction are welcome.

Arthur is really good in bed. He's attentive and enthusiastic and always puts his lover's needs ahead of his own. Plus, he's generously endowed. The Pony Club girls actually use him as a sort of trophy conquest, just a bit of fun and a vacation from their boring boyfriends.

Except, Arthur is really romantic, he doesn't even care much about the sex itself, he just likes sharing that with someone, and actually falls in love with each one of them before they toss him aside like a used rag.

Somehow, he finds out what they're doing, and is devastated.

film AU

(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 03:56 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas is a veteran of rom-coms who's been getting more and more offers for the roles of fathers and various older man lately, and is secretly hurt by not being the star anymore.
Martin is a young, promising actor who is very unlucky in choosing his roles - the films he's in are always commercial and critical failures, even though his acting is usually praised.
Carolyn is a respected and mostly-retired actress who's started her own little film company and occasionally plays small roles in her own films.
Arthur has always wanted to be an actor, inspired by the glamorous careers of his parents, but he never managed to learn how to fake emotions. Instead, he helps around his mother's studio and plays tiny happy cameos.

They meet on a set one day. Will they become friends? Will love bloom? Will Carolyn murder them all in their sleep because they're all idiots?

Arthur Whump and BAMF Martin

(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 06:53 pm (UTC)(link)
I know that there's another Badass Martin prompt above, but this is slightly different. Moreover it contains a little Arthur whump (since I love Arthur and the way he said "stupid, stupid!" in St. Petersburg really broke my heart).

However, long prompt is long.

So, Arthur is constantly belittled by Gordon, who treats him like he's the stupidest among the stupids of this world, and doesn't love him, since he's not the son he wanted, the one who could take the reins of his company.
Arthur is hurt by his father's words and actions towards him, but he doesn't let it show, making everyone believe that he doesn't understand the insults and the general meanness directed at him.
But one day, Gordon makes a snide, hurtful comment about Arthur while Martin is in the room. Arthur can't take it anymore, and starts crying, eliciting even more scornful comments. Martin can't bear to see Arthur cry, so he badassly (is that even a word) stands up for Arthur, defending him.

I would like to see some H/C, where Martin is sweet to Arthur.
it could be either gen or slash, I like both and I'm not picky.

Martin's most interesting delivery job

(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 07:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin ends up unknowingly transporting some very valuable art for a client. The client has an official art moving company with heavy security transporting a decoy load, and they've picked Martin as the "thieves would never even think of looking here" delivery person with no security at all. Martin has no idea that his van contains several million pounds worth of art.

However, some very clever art thieves have uncovered the ruse and intend to hijack Martin's van as gently as possible to avoid damage to the art.

(Crossovers with White Collar or Leverage are OK, even though I haven't seen them. Crossovers with Sherlock are OK too, as long as Martin is not a known or even suspected Holmes relative.)

Would you mind an AU with the art thieves being Douglas, Arthur and Carolyn?

Arthur/Martin -- forbidden blue blood/working class romance

[identity profile] 2012-06-12 07:31 pm (UTC)(link)
25 yo Arthur is brought into the country club by his horrible aunt as a place to meet Suitable Women. 26 yo Martin is working there for the summer mowing the lawns or caddying or something else sweaty and physical. Arthur is trying to fit in the with Alice Bands and Bros, but Cue Awkward Inappropriate Romance!

His aunt doesn't approve. When Carolyn finds out the awful aunt has been talking Arthur out of the relationship with Martin, Carolyn is Displeased.

Martin/ Douglas, Affair

[personal profile] mycroftss 2012-06-12 09:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas and Martin started seeing each other whilst Douglas was still married to Helena and their affair was the reason Douglas and Helena got divorced (no Tai Chi teacher in this case). Maybe Douglas' guilt got too much and he confessed or they were caught or Martin was just too... Martin-y and gave the game away but their relationship was the reason.

I just want lots of guilty, angsty, conflicted love/sex and one of Helena's friends calling poor, stuttering Martin a home wrecker afterwards xD

Cabin Pressure and Sooty show cross-over/fusion

(Anonymous) 2012-06-12 09:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas as an older, even cheekier version of Sooty, Arthur as Sweep, Carolyn as Soo and Martin as Matthew Corbett (the presenter with whom I'm the most familiar).

... Yes, I know, it's just been on my mind for a while!

Martin, Stutter

[personal profile] mycroftss 2012-06-12 09:35 pm (UTC)(link)
I know I just posted a prompt but I need to get this one off my chest.

Okay, so when I was a wee girl I had a stutter. I had some speech therapy and all that malarchy and it was gone before I was 12 but in my ripe old age I find it still comes back during times of anxiety. And yet, it is still not as bad as Martin's gets! Which I find hilarious and odd.

So I just want kid!Martin with a stutter, just every day or going through some kind of speech therapy. Or adult Martin going through something so stressful that his stutter comes back properly- in an almost crippling way (because you can't do a flight check if you're tripping over every other word). So, angst basically.
