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.


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.

I don't know how many people look here, but how about a getting acquainted thread:

Why did you first start listening to Cabin Pressure?

What kept you listening to the series?

Are you active in any other fandoms?

Hi. We've had these before, so please don't be sad if not so many people reply? Here're my answers:
Tumblr made me do it.
The sheer brilliance of characters, stories, happy, and voices. (Douglas' voice most of all.)
Active in like two or three other fandoms, though not writing or anything.
How 'bout you?

Artist on tumblr happily accepting prompts

[personal profile] tracionn 2014-04-30 07:37 am (UTC)(link)
Hi chaps!

For those who aren't so often or not on tumblr at all I just like to link you to Tessa's blog as she is accepting and happily filling any CP art prompts.

(I happen to love her Marlas drawings, especially the belly kisses were just downright adorable:
but she's open to drawing all CP ideas you might wish for.)

So nice of her! So if you like, go and send her an ask :)

(If you don't have a tumblr I'm sure we can figure out a way and I'm happy to help.)

Possibly of interest?

(Anonymous) 2014-05-03 02:46 am (UTC)(link)
This page lets you plug in locations and passengers etc and get an estimate of what a client would expect to pay for a charter flight in US dollars. Peg MJN at the low end of the small jet range or lower and that should give an idea of the going rates Carolyn might be charging.

Re: Possibly of interest?

(Anonymous) 2014-06-15 04:00 pm (UTC)(link)
The thing is useful and interesting! Thanks. However Gertie has 16 seats so it can not be a small or light jet. Either Large Corporate Jet Aircraft or Large Turbo-prop Aircraft.

This is relevant to my interests. I am plotting an AU fic where AU!Martin (successful entrepreneur Martin, rich.) is having re-occurring dreams and other Martin's thoughts are constantly leaking in to his life. All revolving around MJN air and flying. So he gets curious or bored and googles it, finding it actually exists.

As the canon Martin is worried MJN air will fold so is AU!Martin worried and starts booking trips and cancelling them. Essentially spending a lot of money without the crew having to do much work. Finally he just has to meet them. It's become an obsession and identity-crisis. Like Martin is much different from the insecure Martin turns out the rest are not how canon!crew is either. Without Martin they are much less a family on air. (possibly Marlas)

Is it weird that of all the possible outcomes, I'm most worried that John's might 'kill' Gerti?

Re: Worries about Z

(Anonymous) 2014-06-08 08:27 pm (UTC)(link)
I am sure he won't do that! I hope.
But he once said that he was very happy with St Petersburgh as the possible series ending and look how well that ended after the angst.
But yeah, here'sto hope! I have my worries too...

Prompts you are really wanting a fill for?

(Anonymous) 2014-07-11 06:42 am (UTC)(link)
I may have some time and a daily word count to make soon. If there's any prompts in particular you'd like to pimp here, go for it. (I miss the Pinboard.)

Re: Prompts you are really wanting a fill for?

(Anonymous) 2014-07-11 08:00 am (UTC)(link)
What a dangerous question :)
Right now I'd be dying for fills to these prompts:

sappy emotional first time tears M/D

M/D size difference/manhandling/rough sex

(But honestly any D/M not-angsty prompt is loved ♥)

(Ah, such a pity with the pinboard indeed!)

Hi guys!

Just a friendly reminder that EuroAirdotCon will happen next month in Milan and John Finnemore will be there to do the quizz (OMG OMG OMG) and you can still book tickets and hotel rooms and vendor spaces!

All information on their tumblr:

I also made an lj entry for those more comfortable with it:

Is the course they go on in Ipswich free? Carolyn doesn't seem distressed by the 400 quiches which I feel she would if she were paying for them.

Re: Question

(Anonymous) 2014-08-13 08:21 am (UTC)(link)
I can't imagine is totally free, even if they have to do the course.

But I assume the mistake about the quiche was an error from them, not from MJN Air, so maybe that's why Carolyn was so calm about it?


(Anonymous) 2014-08-23 10:29 pm (UTC)(link)
From reports from Airdotcon, John F. has announced the airdate for the final Cabin Pressure episode as Christmas Eve. Mark your calendars.


(Anonymous) 2014-08-24 08:04 am (UTC)(link)
I think we kind of knew that might be the case as that's the general gist of what was reported when the show was recorded.
'Some time around christmas' has been floating about for a while but it's good to have more official confirmation.

How did the con go, by the way? Did any meme-folk make it to Milan?

Didn't they rcord what was at the time an hour long episode? I guess for a half-hour-comedy format it makes sense to split it but, ooh, I was quite looking forward to a double length ep.

The Most Important Post Ever (is not this post)

(Anonymous) 2014-09-10 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
But would anyone be interested in a Cabin Pressure re-listen?

For example, we could find a chat room and chat at a particular time while listening to a particular episode? Or we could plan to listen to an episode and then chat about the episode on the meme.

Re: The Most Important Post Ever (is not this post)

(Anonymous) 2014-09-10 04:52 pm (UTC)(link)
I probably would, but I'd also suggest floating this idea on the Cabin Pressure LJ comm, as this place doesn't have much in the way of traffic these days.

CP Relevent sketches in this

Hello! Scribbles here. I worked on tonight's Lewis Macleod Is Not Himself (it's an impressionist show but not topical or political like Dead Ringers is - more TV/Film stuff and sketches about being an impressionist/voice actor). It's here you might like it, the Cumberbatch runner was written by yrs trly.

Order page on Amazon UK for the complete series CD

And an announcement on Tumblr which includes a VERY NIFTY preview of some of the bonus art John's doing for the box set.

If anyone knows when and where this is going to be available for sale outside the UK, I know I'm not the only one around who'd really like to know about it!!

ANNOUNCEMENT: Cabin Pressure Advent Calendar

(Anonymous) 2014-11-21 11:23 am (UTC)(link)
This is being organized by some bunch on Tumblr, I have nothing to do with it but thought it should be signal boosted here as a place of like-minded folk.

The Cabin Pressure Advent Calendar is a re-listen of the Cabin Pressure episodes with episode themed fic, fan art, meta etc encouraged. One episode per day starting Nov 28th right up until the night before the two-part Cabin Pressure finale airs on the 23rd and 24th of December (which will most likely be available worldwide through the BBC radio 4 IPlayer website, as the episodes have been in the past.) I think it's a fantastic idea; it would be great to rev up the old girl fandom for a whirlwind tour of the CP world before the finale airs, so please spread the word!!

Cabin Pressure & JF nods in this week's Frequency of Laughter

(Anonymous) 2014-12-06 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
If you've not been listening to The Frequency of Laughter (I advise it if you're interested in BBC Radio Comedy - it's unashamedly nerdy about the subject), the last episode has Jan Ravens talking about some of Finnemore's Now Show stuff and Justin Edwards talking Cabin Pressure... notably about the fans. I hope you guys realise just how delighted R4 are about being able to boast of a show with a much younger, more female weighted fan base than the majority of their programmes.

They both talk about some of the stuff I work on too - hooray! - Scribbles x
link to the episode here

So as well as That Finale, this Christmas R4 has 2 episodes of I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue where John very sweetly stepped in at the last minute as an emergency Barry Cryer replacement when Baz was ill (Tim B-T was unavailable too, so it also guests Tony Hawkes & the glorious Susan Calman)

AND John's done a Christmas Cracker - - they're like the Advent Calendar from last year, little 90 second sketches. If you also want to listen to some of the others, I helped write Jan Raven's one. *primp*

The episode airs at 6:30 PM British Time, here is a time zone converter to see when that will be for you.

For listening after the initial airing, go to the Cabin Pressure show page, the episodes should be available fore listening to online for a week afterward. (DON'T LOOK AROUND ON THAT PAGE THOUGH, THERE MAY BE SPOILERS)

While it was fun, I was a little disappointed as it clearly was mostly a set up for the next episode. For me, Carolyn really takes the cake here. My heart goes out to her.

I wonder though, if Arthur had kept quiet, would Martin have gone through and turn down the job?
