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.

Yay yay yay yay new chatter post! Huzzah!

I no longer have to work out how many body parts are in a pub, or whatever might Carol's name be (answer: Carolyn)!

I <3 you mods and your disdain for the square root of a carrot :D

2012 recordings

Come on, spill the beans - has anyone received their tickets for December 2nd, at least?

Unlucky Martins won't be notified either way, so I'd like to know if I should stop holding my breath (I'm getting a bit blue) and let it out in a sad mournful sigh...

If the Hobbit delayed Sherlock, is there a risk of delayed Cabin Pressure?


(Anonymous) 2012-11-29 06:37 pm (UTC)(link)

Warhorses of Letters

(Anonymous) 2012-11-30 06:00 pm (UTC)(link)
The second series of this beautiful love story between Napoleon and Wellington's horses (as told through the letters they wrote to each other and many, many horse puns) started a couple of days ago. Here's a link:

It's probably the most absurd thing on Radio 4 right now. Which is an amazing feat when you consider that the news series of Bleak Expectations is also currently airing.

It's possibly notable to Cabin Pressure fans because in the live tryouts John Finnemore played Copenhagen to Robbie Hudson*'s Marengo. (Stephen Fry and Daniel Rigby star in the radio version.)

*Possibly notable for being co-writer of the this series, being the former *sniff* flatmate to frequent Finnemore collaborator David Mitchell and being the author of The Kilburn Social Club, a novel about football that's quite enjoyable even for people who don't care about football. He also won a prize for co-writing a musical comedy called Sherlock Holmes (The Early Years) which I unfortunately cannot find any other information about an am therefore forced to imagine as a singing and dancing version of Sherlock the TV series.

Roger Allam in The Tempest 2013

(Anonymous) 2012-12-01 02:23 am (UTC)(link)
It seems that Roger Allam is taking the role of Prospero in The Tempest next year at The Globe in London. I haven't seen this reported anywhere else so it's not definite, I suppose, but it would be an odd thing to make up, even if it is derived from the Mail!

At least I didn't do the voice. Well. Not out loud, anyway.

Always awkward when you pick up a bottle of Heston Blumenthal Mulled Cider in Waitrose & then realise you're quietly laughing to yourself in the middle of the booze aisle because Hesssston BlOOOOOMenthaaaal.

Okay, which of you lucky lords and ladies are going to the recordings tomorrow? And to those who aren't going, how much spoilers are you willing to read?

Me, I'm totally okay with spoilers from anything as big as 'He's been dead the entire movie' to as small as, 'he's the killer, duh.' But I know some peeps don't like that.

Also, how long does it take for episodes to be put up on itunes so I can buy 'em? Do I have to wait for the whole season to come out or can I buy them as each episode premieres?

A little over a month away people!! XD

If anyone knows a good winter or holiday Cabin Pressure story, please rec it. This fandom has been around a few years, there are bound to be some fantastic holiday stories, Christmas or winter or otherwise, and since I'm new I'd really like to read them!


(Anonymous) 2012-12-02 06:07 am (UTC)(link)
What would 'rough sex' be under on the Pinboard? I'm not seeing a tag for it, but I may have missed it.

how to turn this into a prompt?

(Anonymous) 2012-12-02 08:41 am (UTC)(link)

I want to make this a prompt but don't know how. I love this photo so much and it's Lockheed, so somehow Cabin Pressure has to happen.

Anyone else writing CP for it?

I love Christmas, but...

(Anonymous) 2012-12-02 09:44 pm (UTC)(link)
... I don't write fanfic for it. Not anymore anyway.

I'm not sure why. I love the winter because oddly enough, I get a good vibe at this time of year. But I never write seasonal fanfiction. It's the same with Halloween.

On top of everything, in the past year, I've become a little less certain about what I'd like to write fanfiction wise because I've been having a personal crisis of confidence over it (dramatic as that might sound).

So, I'm all in favour of peace and joy and goodwill to all men - but I never seem to offer the same towards any of my characters. *blink blink*

Spoilers? [caution: possible spoilers]

(Anonymous) 2012-12-02 11:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Any spoilers to share or links to spoilers?

Porn, romance, gen

(Anonymous) 2012-12-03 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
Generally speaking, individual specific urges aside, which type of stories do you prefer to read and/or write for Cabin Pressure? Is that different for your preferences in other fandoms?

Only asking out of curiousity.

Episode 1 Recording Report Round-up

(Anonymous) 2012-12-03 09:56 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm aware that most of you have probably read, if not written these on Tumblr already, but just in case:





Everyone's being really good about not spoiling the content of the episodes so you won't have to worry about that.

One of the (many) things that makes me a bit envious of anyone who has a chance to go to these things is that it's one of the few instances where you get to see the actors working. It's as much behind-the-scenes as it is a performance itself. So you get to watch the actors work out how they want read a line and how they interact with each other out of character. It's something rare and when they are actors whose work you enjoy makes it even better.

Anyway, enough rambling. If anyone has found some other accounts, please feel free to share!

Is it just me, or is Roger Allam being all quietly badass in "Endeavour" just really attractive?

(Anonymous) 2012-12-06 06:09 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm fed up with all the Star Trek spam on Tumblr already and it's only the first trailer... this is going to be hell

With Apologies to the Anon above me

Link for the new Star Trek trailer. Benedict's voice, dear god.

That's Unexpected

(Anonymous) 2012-12-07 06:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I opened up my new issue of Entertainment Weekly (the one with Martin Freeman as Bilbo on the cover) and on page 5, in the letters section, there's a mention of the delays in filming Sherlock.

They suggest four things to tide you over while you wait: the Jeremy Brett series, Doctor Who, Elementary and "this BBC radio show about the misfit crew of a charter airplane," Cabin Pressure.

If I'm being honest...

(Anonymous) 2012-12-08 03:42 am (UTC)(link)
I'm finding it really hard to be excited about the Hobbit. I saw the trailer and pretty much just thought "already saw this movie ten years ago." Maybe I'm just resentful about the delays it's created for Sherlock. Mostly I don't get why we need three 3-hour movies based on a children's book I could read in the time it takes to sit through one of those movies. A children's book that wasn't even particularly good. The whole thing just smacks of money-grab to me.

Thoughts? Someone convince me why I should go see this.
