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 have to land GERTI on a deserted island. GERTI doesn't crash, but the communications are out and they don't have enough fuel to go anywhere. How do Martin and Douglas survive?

I would love a serious hurt/comfort Douglas/Martin, but a Gilligan's Island-ish crackfic would be fun too. Arthur, Carolyn, and passengers are absolutely welcome, but optional.

Okay so everyone knows Douglas is awesome in a crisis, right?

Well Martin's pregnant, and due to have the baby any time. He goes into labour and Douglas deliver's the baby. I'd love for it to be long and graphic with emphasis on Douglas being calm and collected under pressure, while Martin is nervous and scared.

It can be Douglas/Martin if you like, but I'd like to see our boy's tackle this without being in a relationship.

Douglas is a prostitute. Martin is his usual customer.

Twist is, Martin doesn't pay him to have sex, but has him tutor him in plane flying. (Douglas probably lost his job as captain, banned or something)

Carolyn gets temporarily de-aged (by whatever) to about the age of 7, with her memories at that age of being bullied by her older sister Ruth. After the initial weird and panic, and soothing a very distressed wee Carolyn, Douglas, Martin and Arthur treat her like a princess and spoil her rotten.

Omega-verse, prostitution

(Anonymous) 2012-07-24 07:30 am (UTC)(link)
MJN starts getting a lot of cargo runs - weird ones too - random books, bottles of wine, etc. Carolyn is over the moon.

What she doesn't realise is: the real cargo is Martin.

Martin's van breaks down/he's evicted for some reason/the student house is so run down it's being torn down and there are no other places as cheap to live/whatever.

For some reason, unbonded, omega Martin starts selling his heats to alphas.

Maybe he takes something to make them more frequent? He takes birth control, so he doesn't have to worry about getting pregnant. And it's not like it's against his will, not really - when he's in heat, he just wants to be held down, pounded, filled, knotted and --- he needs the money.

Something happens - maybe an alpha gets too rough? And he's hurt - the crew find out and somehow save the day!

D/M would be wonderful but not necessary. Same goes for explicit smutty-ness. ;)

Wooing Douglas

(Anonymous) 2012-07-24 01:29 pm (UTC)(link)
We already had some of those, but why not another?

For whatever reason*, Douglas takes up wooing our beloved Captain. Not something too pedantic, just some words or gestures here and there, to prove Martin that even he can't resist the charm of the mighty Sky God Douglas Richardson. Except he does. Martin dismisses the FO's attempts like nothing: "Stop it, Douglas" "Yes, fine, good to know"...
In the end, it goes on for so long that Douglas finds himself to quite (genuinely) like the situation. And maybe Martin does, too.

*The reason could be anything that is not genuine interest in a relationship (where would be the fun? ;)). Something along the lines of. game, bet or even better, maybe Douglas has always managed to slept with at least one member of the cabin crew and since "Carolyn and Arthur don't quite float his boat", too he settles for the Captain; like a personal challenge; or maybe Martin question his skills and charm. Whatever really, these are just suggestions.

The Man in the Attic

[personal profile] ice_evanesco 2012-07-24 04:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Because I was talking to OrphanText and GeneralButtons, this came out.

Based on Jane Eyre's first Mrs Rochester (Bertha Mason), later redone by Jean Rhys in Wide Sargasso Sea (into the beautiful, sad Antoinette Cosway-Mason, who was betrayed and driven mad by her husband, Mr Rochester), which is my Literature text and all time favorite book.

What if Martin was the man in the attic? What if all those attempts at trying to be a pilot finally broke him, broke his mind, and he's locked away in the attic (maybe by his family)? The final pass didn't happen, of course.

All he has is his dreams, and he dreams of airplanes and MJN, substituting various people around him into his delusion.

This has a huge potential to be an angst!fest, I know, and it'd be fun to read that. But as an extra special challenge, make it D/M, and a happy ending?

But I'd be happy with anything that comes out from your brilliant minds anyway! <3

Teen Carolyn wanted to be an astronaut

(Anonymous) 2012-07-24 08:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Carolyn Knapp was in her late teens when the Soviet Union sent the first female astronaut into space (Valentina Tereshkova), and has followed the space programs of every nation quietly and avidly since then, particularly watching for news of other female pioneers' journeys in space, Svetlana Savitskaya in 1982 and Sally Ride in 1983.

Martin's desperation to be a pilot reminds Carolyn of her own teenage dreams of somehow becoming an astronaut.


(Anonymous) 2012-07-24 10:17 pm (UTC)(link)
Carolyn absolutely and rightfully loses her shit on an MJN client in the middle of the airfield in front of the crew.

Afterward, both Martin and Arthur are suddenly very timid around her, over-cautious, over-apologetic, and jumpy if she raises her voice or seems to be getting upset.

Potterverse blend

(Anonymous) 2012-07-24 10:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Gerti really can't fly most of the time. Douglas is the only reason she gets off the ground, because he's secretly a wizard.

Specifically, Douglas is a Muggle-born wizard who was in Slytherin in the late 1960's. He was supposed to have been graduating around the time of the First Wizarding war, but had to go into hiding in the Muggle world long before graduation to save his family's lives and his own from the Death Eaters. Except for helping Gerti fly he's completely cut himself off from the wizarding world.

Until it finds him.

Douglas' old fashioned manners get Martin in trouble. (TW possible non-con)

(Anonymous) 2012-07-24 11:04 pm (UTC)(link)
Buying dinner = entitled to sex.

Although Douglas never abused it, when Douglas was young and started dating it was a pretty standard assumption. So when one of the 'ladies of a certain age' down the golf club ask him to dinner then pays, Douglas knows whats expected of him and excepts it with great relish. Almost immediately Douglas gains a reputation as a charming, debonair gigolo and gets lots and lots of 'dates'. Pretty soon even some of the men start asking him out and Douglas loves it. He's getting great meals and lots of sex with really appreciative people, whats not to like?

In an movement of unprecedented altruism he tells Martin about his new scheme for getting free meals and sex and tries to recruit Martin as his 'apprentice'. After all, it seems to solve all Martins problems. Douglas sees it all as a great lark but instead of thinking its great Martin thinks its all a bit sordid. Unfortunately Martin doesn't feel confident enough to stand up to Douglas and ends up in a very uncomfortable position on his first 'date'. Douglas has to step in to save the day and possibly provide lots of comfort.

Pairings/smut/whatever left to filler.

Blogger (tw: mentions of suicide)

(Anonymous) 2012-07-25 10:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin keeps a blog. He's been writing it for years and barely ever gets comments so he naturally assumes no one's reading it.

Lonely, miserable and exhausted one night, and having nobody else he can talk to, he ends up blogging not just some intensely personal confessions, but also one or two comments that unintentionally make him sound suicidal.

Martin is mistaken, however. People do read his blog. Far more people than he realised. Which is why he wakes up the next morning with an inbox full of worried strangers and someone frantically hammering at his door.

Martin's family are not nice.

(Anonymous) 2012-07-26 08:11 am (UTC)(link)
Any time he has contact with them, Martin's family judges him as a failure and joke, even now that he's a Captain, because they know how he's really living. (If a filler is comfortable handling the topic, they might also be homophobic.)

Can someone at MJN find Martin seriously distraught after his family has had a real go at him and do something, anything to help Martin feel less like the worthless shit his family tells him he is?

RTYIs welcome, because after tonight I really need to read something like that in the morning. :(
