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.

Eye contact

(Anonymous) 2012-06-08 08:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas notices something very strange. Martin will have eye contact with Carolyn and Arthur, but not with him. In fact, when Douglas tries to catch Martin's eye, he will avoid them. Why?

Martin has a good day. A really truly, no hidden tricks or problems good day. Everything goes his way. It's absolutely perfect.

By the end of it he's a complete nervous wreck from waiting for something to go wrong.

Martin doesn't bother celebrating his birthday because something always seems to go wrong that prevents him from doing so. He tries not to let this bother him, it's not that big of a deal, and has gone years without celebrating.

When his next birthday comes around, MJN do a little something for hm. Martin is so stunned, he cries.

Based off my birthday experiences, forcing me to celebrate my birthday nearly two weeks after the date.

remembering calm

(Anonymous) 2012-06-08 09:47 pm (UTC)(link)
When I finally went on anti-depressants/anti-anxiety meds, after about two weeks it hit me at work, I was calm. I wasn't worried, I wasn't fretting, I was present in the moment, focused on my work and I was CALM. I had forgotten what that felt like.

I'd like a story about Martin finally getting some help for his anxiety and having that day.

Re: remembering calm

(Anonymous) 2012-06-09 08:55 am (UTC)(link)
I remember that moment, too. I was sitting in a Chinese restaurant with my husband, and the panic/anxiety/mental exhaustion from dealing with them had faded enough to actually enjoy the evening.

warning: orgasm denial, bondage, possible three or moresome

Douglas being tied down and sensuously teased and brought to the brink of orgasm for hours - until he's shaking, desperate, and can't even string two words together, let alone snark - before finally being permitted to come.

Might take some teamwork to render Douglas Richardson utterly incoherent though.

I was thinking in the Paris episode when Martin has to stop Douglas from getting the whiskey... Douglas asked why Martin doesn't keep it on him and Martin says that Douglas would come up with some way to distract him and then swipe the whiskey...

Well what if Martin did keep the whiskey with him and Douglas did distract him...

By seducing him.

Avengers crossover - Martin/Natasha Romanoff

(Anonymous) 2012-06-09 03:42 pm (UTC)(link)
(Original post -

Natasha meets Martin (accident? on a mission?) and though at first she doesn't like him (or maybe she does?) but they eventually they start dating OR become friends once she realizes he isn't being intentionally rude he is just a very nervous and silly man.

Then the Avengers meet him.

Someone tries having "the talk" with him. He doesn't wet himself but he thinks it was a close thing. She decides to have "the talk" with her teammates along the lines of "I can take care of myself and if you guys try to give him a heart attack again I will kill you."

He destroys something. Tony's something

They think at some point that he is lying to her (maybe as a spy? Sherlock needs to infiltrate a crime ring during the three year hiatus thing? a case?) because Sherlock's pic pops up.

He is one of the only people she will willingly cuddle with.

He bandages her wounds.

"I am certainly NOT a prostitute!"

(Anonymous) 2012-06-09 04:00 pm (UTC)(link)
and as far as Martin's concerned, he isn't.

But he does have some clients who've seduced him. Why wouldn't they, staring at Martin, those arms, that arse, so sweet and bumbling...

and none of them actually say 'I want to pay you money for sex.', they just hire him to move things and then they move on to other things. (the lady who likes to tie him spread-eagle to the bed and ride him til he passes out did give him some suspicions, but she always has boxes for him to move when he comes over, so he shrugged it off)

so four times one of Martin's moving van clients seduced him and the one time either Douglas or Arthur 'hired' him?

bonus points if Martin's clients don't consider him a prostitute either.

Martin's Punished

(Anonymous) 2012-06-09 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Sub!Martin is definitely NOT Captain in the bedroom. Sometimes, during long weeks off, Dom!Douglas has to remind him of this.
With a firm caning, his Master's come drying on his face, and absolutely no orgasms, at any point, for days.

Martin gets off on being completely controlled. Douglas gets off on Martin's desperation. Especially if it involves fucking Martin's tight little arse and never letting him come.

Bonus: By the end of it, Martin's floating so nice and deep in subspace that Douglas can be as generous with the rewards as he wants.

Martin is in love with Douglas. Problem is, Martin knows this can never be because of their age and status and so different lives. So instead of persuing him, Martin chooses to keep his love to himself and never speak of it. Ever.

But love always comes out in strange ways, not even in ways Martin is aware of...

TW suicide attempt and bad shrinks, not in that order

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 03:28 am (UTC)(link)
Based on a prompt above and personal experience.

Martin's depression and anxiety gets to be too much and he seeks profesional help, except, he can't really afford a good profesional, and either ends up misdiagnosed, wrongly medicated, or the drugs simply do not work the way they should. Instead of listening to him when he fumbles his doubts about the treatment, the shrink just ups the dosage and, instead of getting better, he gets numb. It isn't after months of taking what's supposed to make him better, that he tries to kill himself, by OD'ing on his own meds.

TL;DR?: Martin can only afford a crap shrink and they make him worse than ever.

Happy ending, pls?

Slavery, forced masculinity, forced pregnancy

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 03:55 am (UTC)(link)
A strange disease has depleated the world of fertile women. Women who are proven to bear children are strictly monitered, and once they are of age, either become pregnant or give up their eggs.

Fem!Martin has kept her hair short, her voice low to keep out of the eyes of the public. As much as she wants kids, she wants them on her own terms, under her own choice. For the past ten years, Martin has played herself off as a man.

And like all things, what happens when a certain First Officer finds out?

Whumping Douglas by whumping Martin

(Anonymous) 2012-06-10 03:49 pm (UTC)(link)
Right then. I've realised that the best way to hurt Douglas is to have bad things happen to the people he cares about while he's powerless to do anything about it. And I do enjoy hurting Douglas.

Martin's involved in a serious accident that leaves him with a permanent disability. It's the indirect result of something Douglas has done (short-cuts? over-confidence?) It is, of course, absolutely devastating but he gets through it with the help of the MJN family. He can't work as a commercial pilot (or a man with a van) any more, but he's determined when he has to be and finds a job he likes and is good at (teaching perhaps?). Maybe he becomes involved with a charity for disabled pilots (eg and gets his private license. He earns a decent living for once, has his own place, friends through work, hobbies, the lot. He does all this himself, without once asking Douglas for help.

Basically, bad stuff happens to Martin. He copes, Douglas doesn't.

Would prefer gen if possible!
