Chatter Post II



Please see the most recent MOD NOTE and ADDENDUM


(updated 5 July)



New chat post, same rules. Brit-pick, ask questions, debate, gossip, gush and generally indulge in any fannish activity that does not fall under the category of posting or filling prompts. I hope you all enjoy it

The usual guidelines apply, but mostly:

-  Please be respectful to one another.

-  Don't bash other (non)anon's comments/questions/ideas/etc.

-  Have fun

Now go forth, chat amongst yourselves and enjoy. I am of course on stand, so if any problems arise, feel free to drop me a line.

And if you stumble across any plot bunnies here, please just drop them off home at the Prompt-Post, the rest of the herd will be overjoyed to meet them.


Or as they say in Limerick

It's been brought to my attention we are needing
A place for discussion, not reading
I hope this post will do
I'll leave the rest to you
And Beware of the plot bunnies breeding

Sorry if the poem is rubbish - I literally haven't written one since grade five.


REALLY IMPORTANT ADDENDUM



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.

Probably shouldn't tell people this, but...

So I'm working on a BBC Radio sitcom pitch with the Souvenir Programme producer right now. Just started on the script for the pilot.

Which is nice.

Story link to AO3, D/M, slight Zoo AU, very lovely

[personal profile] tracionn 2013-06-20 04:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Sorry for bothering but I just wanted to link that story here for those who aren't following AO3 because it's nagging at the back of my mind that we've had a prompt like that at some point, one requesting a zoo. Or did we?

Anyway, it's a super lovely story :)

Titel/Author:
Polar Bears Are Brilliant by Ro_Arden

Summary:
Following a damaging crash, the crew of MJN find themselves working at a zoo to raise the money to fix GERTI. Shenanigans, love and polar bears ensue.

Cp and my life

(Anonymous) 2013-06-23 03:14 am (UTC)(link)
I just recently came back from a vacation in Texas. My flight was delayed because according to the captain, there wasn't enough flight attendants.

We were a pretty full plane, so I thought to myself, "Wow, didn't they know you need one flight attendant for every 19 passengers? Huh."

My second plane was delayed too, due to weather from the previous night. "Dammit, Martin, this is why we can't have nice things!"

Douglas's History?

(Anonymous) 2013-07-04 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
I've been thinking (always dangerous!).

If Douglas had been a pilot for 34 years in 2012, he started in 1978 (aged 23). His first stag night was in Soho 1977 (the one with Peter Cook and a Kink).. so he was married (aged 22) before he became a pilot?

Also he would have started university in 1972 or 1973 (see the thread a couple of pages back)... so did he actually FINISH his medical degree but fail (or quit) at the Junior Doctor (I'm suddenly seeing Douglas in the Doctor In The House book/film) bit of getting qualified, or what?

What did he do between 1973 and 1977 and 1977 and 1978? What do people think? DO people other than me think about this stuff?

Re: Douglas's History?

(Anonymous) 2013-07-04 02:14 am (UTC)(link)
I suspect he had a very wild time, possibly with out of control drinking.

Pilot Training

(Anonymous) 2013-07-06 03:27 am (UTC)(link)
An old school-friend of my brother's has just decided to embark on all this: http://www.tobeapilot.co.uk/beginning.html in order to become a commercial pilot.

All told, with medicals, ratings, exams, flight hours + tutor/trainer etc he reckons it will cost him in the region of £40,000 from zero (e.g. he needs his PPL first etc etc) to fully qualified - IF he passes everything first time. £10,000 for the first six months of flight hours etc, THEN some exams/Ratings etc, then £30k for Solo Hours, Night Qualification, CPL, etc.

This is more expensive than a three-year undergraduate degree course! Where are people supposed to find the money?

How the HELL did Martin afford six re-takes?! Accoding to the website the CPL bit alone is roughly £8,000.

(Also, interestingly, he tells me that at least one budget airline won't hire any pilots over the age of 30... Poor Douglas!)

Calling all Souvenir Programme fans...

(Anonymous) 2013-07-17 09:19 pm (UTC)(link)
... Could do with a bit of advice.

I've managed to get myself a couple of the 'lottery' tickets for the August recording, one for myself and one for my Mum.

However, I'm a little worried. I know having a ticket doesn't necessarily guarantee you a seat and JF mentioned himself on his blog that not everyone who showed up for the Cabin Pressure recordings managed to get in and some who had tickets were turned away. My Mum and I live a couple of hours away and if we're going to make the journey, I want to make sure it's worth it. My Mum can't really stand for long lengths of time due to a weak foot and I don't really want to have her standing outside for ages, especially if there's no concrete guarantee of getting a seat.

... Yeah, I know. None of this really occurred to me when I put my name down for a ticket. Basically, what I want to ask: has anyone been to a previous Souvenir Programme recording and were they as popular as the Cabin Pressure ones? Do you need to show up super-early (I know some people got to the CP recordings really early) in order to get inside? I just need to weigh up the pros and cons and whether it's worth the journey down for my Mum and I.

Any info would be much appreciated, thanks!

They're doing two recordings per session & swapping audiences over for the different recordings so that they can get twice as many people in. I think you should be OK. I'm going to the August one myself (2nd sitting) - exciting!

If you ask Carolyn, she would say she was fine. She is, however, not fine at all. She closed MJN after all of the crew (and Hercules) move away for other jobs. She's still in debt, has no support system, and is just doing the best she can to keep it together while everyone moves on. Then, something happens that makes her reach out and realize it's not weak to accept support from people who love her. Happy ending, please.

Pitching my sitcom very soon

(Anonymous) 2013-07-29 05:00 pm (UTC)(link)
All the i's are dotted and the t's are crossed and I'm so fucking nervous now because we've done the suggested casting and suddenly it feels very potentially real.

Sorry, had to vent & this is the only place I go that's radio comedy relevant where I'm anon.

So, I was recently reading a long-winded, whiny post I put down on the previous Chatter post late last year and I can only cringe at how childish and immature and self-defensive I sounded.

Sorry, everyone. :(

Eh, happens to everyone. Time passes, people forget, don't sweat it.

Is it weird that I hope this meets its goal so it can be crossed over in fanfic with Cabin Pressure. I watched the promo vid and I already want Martin to become BFFs with Henrietta.

Multi-fandom Big Bangs

I am not involved in these at all (though I am thinking of signing up for all over my LJ f'list and I thought I'd mention them here. Sign-ups look as though they are open until fics are actually due:

Fix-It Story Big Bang - http://fixitstory.livejournal.com/ (What it says on the tin - don't like something in canon? Fix it!)

Royalty Story Big Bang - http://royaltystory.livejournal.com/ (Stories including royalty, royalty AUs etc - given we have royalty in our actual CANON! this seems a shoe-in for Cabin Pressure writers.)

Journey Story Big Bang - http://journeystory.livejournal.com/ (Stories focussed on a journey/trip!)

Kid!fic Story Big Bang - http://kidficstory.livejournal.com/

Personally, I'm thinking that a Big Bang Challenge might be just what I need to get my arse in gear. Anyone else interested?
