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.

Sherlock Crossover - Irene/"Martha"

Can we have a little more Martin/Irene Adler?

Irene adores her favourite sub. Really. She does. The only problem is, she does still really love women. So, whenever they've got a couple of days to themselves, he becomes Martha for her.

More Martin!Whump

(Anonymous) 2012-07-09 02:35 am (UTC)(link)
Martin goes missing for a month. When he is finally found, he is in such a catatonic state he barely reacts to anything around him. He'll eat, sleep, but talking and responding to people is gone. All he does is stare out into space, mentally lost.

Cue MJN trying their best to coax Martin out of this state, failing miserably at some points, but ultimately succeeding.

Op is a D/M fan, if anyone wants to go that route. :)

Magical realism-ish? - Theme songs

(Anonymous) 2012-07-09 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
An AU world, where once you've become close to someone for long enough, you can hear their personal theme song. The song can be any song in existence, and the person never knows when someone hears their song. Songs can change if a person experiences a major event/change.
Once Martin has been at MJN long enough, he hears all of their's and they all hear his. All of them are revealing on differing levels.

dangerous sunburn/heatstroke

(Anonymous) 2012-07-09 07:35 am (UTC)(link)
After a flight somewhere hot and sunny and after "I'm Captain Creiff and I'll bloody well handle it myself" stands out on the tarmac at the airfield arguing with a technician about Gertie's airworthiness and their flight plan for hours, Martin manages to get a severe sunburn and heat stroke.

Douglas and Arthur assume it's just a bad sunburn at first and tease him about it, but soon it's obvious that Martin's not doing well at all. He's not sweating, his burn is blistering, he's delirious, his temperature is over 105, and his pulse is racing, and there's no one to help him but Douglas and Arthur.

In which Arthur is left feeling fifty shades of grey by a certain book

Carolyn has a secret copy of Fifty Shades of Grey. Arthur stumbles across it - maybe Snoopadoop finds it or something and realising it's that book that everyone's been talking about, he opens it up to a random page - and finds himself rather shocked.

More Prostitute!Martin, only higher class

(Anonymous) 2012-07-09 01:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Yes, more Martin turns to prostitution to earn some money. It started off with simple blowjobs in the back alley, but when he realises that it isn't that bad (or so he tried to tell himself) for the kind of money he received, he just continued.

Until one day, one of his customers offers to hook him up with higher class prostitution. An auction of Martin's virginity; apparently there was a great market for it.

The recession worsens, Martin comes down with a flu for weeks and can't work, business on the streets is bad anyway, and he's desperate. He says yes.

Now, Douglas happens to be dragged by a friend's friend to a bachelor party of dubious origin, only to find out it was some twisted sort of auction for young gay men. He's about to leave (for all his sexual proclivities, this was not one of them) when he sees Martin out of the corner of his eye.

What happens?

The first time Douglas introduces Martin to someone as his friend (instead of his colleague). Perhaps a "five times Douglas introduces Martin to someone as his colleague and one time he introduces Martin as a friend", if you like?

Either way, I'd like something about Martin's reaction to that.

Anything Arthur's MJN sims do comes true IRL

Arthur loves the Sims! And the new expansion pack allows you to follow your sims to work! And he found an obscure site in a language he doesn't understand with a FLIGHT CREW hack! Yay! Now he can make MJN Sims and play them on a Sim Gerti!

Except! Whatever happens in the game happens IN REAL LIFE.

What does Arthur do with this godlike power? He can make everyone happy! But the game is actually sort of challenging, and there's lots of other hacks. They can even get sick and DIE in-game. Or get pregnant! Or fall in love! Or wear really silly outfits!

Douglas resists change, despite his health M/D

[identity profile] 2012-07-09 09:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas has a heart-related scare. He survives, but his doctor lays down all sorts of new restrictions and life changing rules about exercise and diet. His partner Martin tries to *help* him. Douglas Does Not Take To This well *at all*.

(This prompt inspired by the Roseanne arc when Dan had his heart attack and started sneaking candy bars, and lying about how much exercise he did, and then they had that huge argument borne of 25 years' resentment. And it was all about how hard it is to get a 51 year old man to put aside his masculine ego and admit he needs to learn new tricks.)

I don't usually restrict my prompts, but plz no character death!

Okay. So I know it's a figure of speech. I and others around me say "I bet a..." whatever that we were right about something. Well, I was re-listening to St. Petersburg and when Douglas is deducing Gordon's plan - he bet's Martin a fiver that the engine is new. And it is.

So - later on after they've gotten home. Douglas collects on the bet.

The music of the airfield

(Anonymous) 2012-07-10 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
This is weird. Based on a dream I had.

Carolyn gets seriously ill or drugged or has some kind of medication go funny on her, to the point of hallucinating and delusions. These hallucinations/delusions take the form of a gender-swapped Fitton Airfield based version of The Phantom Of The Opera, with herself as the Phantom and Herc as Christine.

Carolyn might just be half-conscious and hallucinating all this in hospital, but what I'd really like to see everyone urgently chasing her around the airfield while she's all Mwahahah and oh Christiiiine and cloak swirling and dropping light fixtures on people etc.

Herc of course has to sing, maybe in a duet with Douglas, so they can catch her and get her to hospital.

TLDR: A delusional Carolyn re-enacts a genderswapped Phantom of the Opera on Fitton Airfield, and everyone has to play into her hallucination to catch her and get her to a hospital.

TW: Body-Image Issues

(Anonymous) 2012-07-11 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
Martin has body-image issues, not surprisingly. He looks in the mirror and feels a horrible rage consume him (why can't he be handsome? Why is he so skinny?), fading into a deep sorrow. He has a bit of muscle, but his long, awkward face, pale body and gingery hair (not to mention freckles) has him looking like an ugly ghost (in his eyes).

Douglas sets out to prove he is indeed handsome, though unconventionally. (porn is lovely, but anything is welcome. Even gen if you want!)

The mystery of the naptime kiss.

(Anonymous) 2012-07-11 05:47 am (UTC)(link)
Martin falls asleep in the Portacabin over his log books. He's half-awake when someone comes in the room, removes Martin's hat, kisses his forehead softly, and then leaves.

For the next several days, Martin goes mental trying to figure out who it was, because no one's coming forward, he's getting confusing or conflicting signals from everyone, and he simply can't outright ask his colleagues if they kissed his forehead while he was sleeping where he shouldn't have even been sleeping.

ANY resolution to the mystery is acceptable to the OP, please warn for anything that might be upsetting to readers, but aside from that the filler has carte blanche, no questions required.

To Dream or Not To Dream

(Anonymous) 2012-07-11 07:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Twelve hours ago, Martin was a single, awkwardly handsome captain of an airline.

Eight hours ago, Martin went to sleep in his dingy attic.

Two minutes ago, Martin woke up naked in his first officer's arms. He has no idea what's going on and scrambles to wrap his mind around it. Was he drunk? A fling over alcohol? But certainly Douglas doesn't drink.

Martin learns he's supposedly been married for Douglas for five years, lives with his twelve-year old daughter, and it's their anniversary. How does he react to all of this?

IDK. If you can make it happen, do it! Maybe it's all a dream. Maybe it's a alternate reality. Maybe he lost his memory. *throws cookies* WRITE LIKE THE WIND

Martin, leashed

(Anonymous) 2012-07-11 08:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin in a collar, on the end of a leash, happy as a clam as he toddles along after his lover/owner/Dom/whatever.

Don't care if it's a D/s AU, slavery AU or just regular real-world sexy playtime.
(Art fills are love!)

Preferably no animal play but other than that, go wild!

Fill: Martin, leashed

(Anonymous) 2015-01-24 02:29 am (UTC)(link)
‘Come along Martin.’ The tug on the leash is very gentle, just a reminder really. Martin tears himself away from the shop window and quickens his pace to bring himself back to heel. ‘Good boy.’ Douglas murmurs. ‘What were you looking at?’

‘Model kits.’

‘Ah.’ Douglas doesn't really have time to say more before they arrive at the café. The bell over the door tinkles musically and as there’s no queue Douglas orders from the table as he sits down, moving the chair out to make a little more space for Martin to fold up at his feet.

Martin’s cheek rests automatically on Douglas’s left thigh and he pets at the curls absently as they wait for their tea and cake.

Martin prefers coffee, but coffee is for piloting days, when he’s not exactly a different person, but a person with a different sort of aspect to him.

Carolyn knows, of course, that he’s a sub. She had made no bones about the fact that she’d have considered making him Captain if he hadn’t been, since in her opinion Douglas had needed reining in quite badly. Martin supposes he could have reported her to the Equalities board for that, but he can sort of see that he wouldn’t ever have been able to out Dom Douglas, and it wasn’t as if he would have got more money as Captain.

‘Comfortable?’ Douglas asks, feeding him a sliver of chocolate buttercream with a slick press of his index finger against Martin’s lips. Martin sucks the digit clean and nods, raises his head to take a forkful of cake as well when Douglas holds it out to him. He’ll probably end up with more than half, just because Douglas likes to spoil him.

He pours and hands Martin his black and unsugared tea and loops the leash very loosely around his left wrist as he doctors his own. Martin can feel the reassuring weight of it on his collar, swinging with Douglas’s movements, gently brushing against his bare arm.

A few more bites of cake and Douglas sits back in the chair, ready to talk. He glares briefly across the room first though, at a man in the corner who is looking at Martin in predatory way. It’s odd, Martin thinks, that when he was uncollared no-one really looked at him, probably assuming there was a reason he didn’t have anyone. Now suddenly he’s getting this unwanted attention. He shuffles round a bit so his back is more obviously towards the man and puts his head on Douglas’ lap again.

Douglas laughs and pets him. Martin suspects that actually, if Carolyn had really thought about how to make Douglas more careful, she should have guessed putting a small, slightly nervous (but hiding it), underfed sub in the cockpit would be far more effective than someone who would challenge Douglas. Douglas loves having someone to look after.

‘Tell me about the model kits.’ He suggests.

‘It was just a really nice display.’ Martin says. He’s not angling for a present. Douglas keeps looking for little things to buy him, and it’s nice but he doesn’t need to. Martin has a real plane to fly, ‘They had harriers and tornadoes and spitfires all made up in the window.’ He continues. ‘and all hanging up like they were dogfighting.’

‘Terribly anachronistic.’ Douglas teases. ‘But you can show me on the way back.’ He leaves the money for the cake and tea on the table with a tip and gives another little tug on the leash as he stands. Martin isn’t the most graceful – he has to lean on the chair to get back off his knees without stumbling – but Douglas gives him time before leading him back to the door, just a step behind his Dom.

Exactly where he wants to be.
