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.

Tamara Drewe

(Anonymous) 2013-12-20 09:25 pm (UTC)(link)
Tamara Drewe is on BBC2 tonight at 11 in case anyone's interested.
Personally I don't love it, half the characters need a good kick in the shins, but if you're in the mood for some Allam then there's worse ways to spend the evening.

Re: Tamara Drewe

(Anonymous) 2014-01-12 03:15 pm (UTC)(link)
I admit, I got it for Allam, but I do see your point about some of the characters, particularly Jodie. :S

I'm hoping to start reposting this monster:

http://cabinpres-fic.dreamwidth.org/6625.html?thread=12917729#cmt12917729

to AO3 starting in around 24 hours (Noon UTC Dec 30) and I'm finding the editing process really difficult. If anyone has noticed any glaring spelling, grammar, continuity, Brit-pick or other issues that really need attended to before reposting, please PM me about them or email me at writernon (at) livejournal (dot) com, that would really help. :)

YEAH! So happy it'll go up on AO3 too.

I would love to offer you proper betaing but I'm not an English Native and wouldn't be much help. But I will let you know should I find anything that ticks me!

(Also, I CAN'T WAIT to read 'The Weather Outside is Frightful' adsffgjhjk. Being at work and having to wait until I'm home is unbearable I'll tell ya.)

Shall we do anything?

(Anonymous) 2014-01-18 11:55 am (UTC)(link)
It's getting quieter and quieter here, huh?

I wonder if we should, could, want to do anything? Like pimping the meme on other sides or anything? A give-away or prizes or anything?

But then again, I think everybody who would like to stay and write here, would do (or is doing it) and we can't change that people move on. Moved on myself partly too.

Just wanted to throw this out here.

Re: Shall we do anything?

I'm frantically trying to clear my RL deck enough to write and post my version of Z before the real thing comes out. It's going to get louder around here when we start getting more word about when Z's coming, I'm sure.

Big Bang/Mini Bang?

(Anonymous) 2014-01-26 12:18 pm (UTC)(link)
I know there was an attempt at one a few years ago that fizzled before it ever got off the ground, but if I were to put one together, would people be interested in participating? Or has this fandom pretty much run its course?

Re: Big Bang/Mini Bang?

(Anonymous) 2014-01-26 04:49 pm (UTC)(link)
You could try poking the main comm over on LJ to see if there's interest, but even at its height this fandom has been a little under-populated for bang-fic challenges.

I'm hoping for a resurgence in activity when we get concrete times for recording and airing of Z.

I know this is the wrong post to ask but the Beta post doesn't seem to get a lot of traffic.
Would anyone fancy doing a beta on a... *whispers* really dirty Dom!Douglas/Sub!Martin fic with bonus 'and-Herc-makes-three' action?
I've had it sitting around for like a year already, I'd really like to just get it checked through and posted now, if anyone feels like helping out?

The Thank you Cabin Pressure project that is putting together a video of CP fans from all over the world saying thank you in their own languages (which will be presented to JF and the cast and crew at the recording on the 23rd of this month) is also doing a charity drive to raise funds for the National Literacy Trust, to go along with the video and the presentation.

If you can donate, great, but whether you do or not, please consider signal boosting so everyone who likes Cabin Pressure can have the opportunity to express their appreciation for the show in a tangible way.

An artist has claimed one of them yay CP artist! \o/

But the other is still going begging D: D: D:

This is what the author has to say about the fic to (maybe?) inspire an artist to claim it:

'Hello epic au CP fic with wings sometimes! And comedy! Sex also. And some angst and hurt comfort. Oh and pining and romance. Hello? HELLO?'

Come Fly With Me

(Anonymous) 2014-02-21 04:28 am (UTC)(link)
Hey guys! So I was very lucky and I got two tickets to go see the Cabin Pressure recording on Sunday. Unfortunately the friend I was going to go see it with had to back out at the last minute. I am still going (swarms of otters couldn't keep me away), but I have this extra ticket and I thought I should at least offer it to any other Cabin Pressure fans who are going to be in London on Sunday. I'm not asking for money or anything since I got it for free, just if you're able to make it and you want it, it's yours.

Dinner for two?

(Anonymous) 2014-03-02 11:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I think I just found the most Martin-esque romantic-dinner destination in the world.

http://www.facts.fm/unique-restaurants/
#1 DC-6 Diner, England
Located inside a 1958 Douglas DC-6 aircraft at the Coventry Airport, the DC-6 Diner is the first restaurant in the UK of its type. Opening in 2010, this restaurant seats 40 and also has a bar. Guests can call for service using the original call buttons, and are welcome to take a look in the cockpit. The menu has an aviation theme, and is much tastier than typical airline food.

I hope it's okay when I answer this, it does happen with Alex' permission.
She's just utterly busy with job and real life and needed a definite tumblr/online break. I very much hope she'll be back one day of course.

But for now she says Hi and I am happy to say that she still has aaaall the Cabin Pressure (and Marlas) feels :)

Should you search for a certain post from her or so I'd be glad to help; all the reblogs will still be intact.

Writing for BBC Radio Comedy guide

(Anonymous) 2014-03-12 09:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Scribbles here, with news. Look! An iBook by the BBC about getting in to writing radio comedy, if that's something that interests any of you.
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/writing-for-bbc-radio-comedy/id829571391?mt=11&ls=1
It's free and it includes lots of advice from writers, script editors, producers (including the Souvenir Programme producer), Commissioning Editors and Agents, and some stuff about me!
If you don't have an iPad, most of the info in the book is also available here
https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/writing-for-bbc-radio-comedy/id829571391?mt=11&ls=1
