PROMPT POST VIII

Prompting Post Part VIII



Prompt Post Eight


Welcome to the Cabin Pressure Fic Prompting Meme, dedicated solely to Cabin Pressure, the hilarious and oh-so-addictive BBC Radio 4 sitcom written by John Finnemore! This meme is pretty anything goes - but for everything to run smoothly there are a few guidelines. Don't worry, they're not too restrictive.

GUIDELINES



FILLING

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. This makes it simpler to link and follow fills in a clean and clear manner. Following these guildelines will be very much appreciated! :D

REPROMPTING

Reprompting is allowed but please include the URL of the original prompt when you do so. It will make it infinitely more easy to find the original prompt so anyone tracking it can be notified of the re-prompt or any fills.

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. 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. We're not trying to oppress RPF writers and enthusiasts. We would just really like to avoid any legal problems, and also keep the focus on the fictional world of Cabin Pressure.

  6. When you post a fill or a new part of a WIP, please go over to the relevant post (Filled Prompts Post or WIP Post) and, following each post's guidelines, post a link to what you've written. Many memers track these posts to find new fills, particularly on older prompt posts.



REALLY IMPORTANT NOTE


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.

Also: 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, we're 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! \o/

Any problems please just message us and we'll try our best to work it out.

Gen or Any/Any, Martin loses his license

I have a preference for Theresa/Martin, but if you want a very angsty D/M, that works for me.

AU - D/M arranged marriage, sort of.

(Anonymous) 2015-01-28 09:09 am (UTC)(link)
Shortly after Cremona, Carolyn gets ill and develops a high fever, during which she insists that she cannot have pilots who are not married to each other. It's a source of great and genuine distress in her fevered state.

Since everyone is rather worried that Carolyn's illness could become fatal if she keeps on like this and Arthur is beside himself with worry, Martin and Douglas decide there is no harm in having Arthur preside over their hospital bedside wedding, just to calm Carolyn and let her have some peace.

Carolyn eventually recovers and all goes back to normal apart from the joking ("Do you want me to drive, darling?"). Except... Arthur had one of those internet license to perform an actual civil union. The paperwork was done, signed by medical staff 'witnesses' and submitted to the registry office, and Martin and Douglas are in fact officially civil partners under the law.

When Helena later files for divorce from Douglas, everything suddenly gets very complicated.

Prefer happy ending with Douglas and Martin choosing to remain partners, either platonically or romantically.


TLDR: To soothe an ill Carolyn, Douglas and Martin have Arthur fake-marry them, except it turns out to not be quite as fake as they thought.

Re: AU - D/M arranged marriage, sort of.

Ooooh I LOVE this!

(esp fevered!shipper!Carolyn: "gdi I caNNOT STaNd tHIs UST!")


Martin and Douglas are in fact officially civil partners under the law.

welllll, 'cept Douglas was married to someone else at the time? Are you allowed to be married to one person and civil unioned to another? (That would actually be wonderful for poly ppl, and very forward-thinking of the UK :D :D :D) If not, then the c-u was invalid.

So bonus points for Martin insisting that they make it all correct and according to regulations after Douglas' divorce :D :D :D

Douglas's damaged wing

(Anonymous) 2015-01-29 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas does something stupid and injures his wrist or strains his shoulder or something, a la Martin in Ottery, and since it happened in a way that will sound ridiculous when he tells the story, he does one of two things: 1. Makes up a lie
2. Hides it

Something happens that forces him to take some painkillers for it. Only his doctor never told him that complete and utter honesty would be a side effect...

Captain Richardson (tw: unhealthy relationship)

(Anonymous) 2015-01-30 09:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas wants so badly to be captain because he thinks it's the only way he's worth being loved: if he's successful. Unfortunately, his newest romantic relationship only confirms that belief, and his self-esteem (which was never high to begin with) plummets. Luckily, someone actually does love him, warts and all.

(Anonymous) 2015-01-30 09:52 pm (UTC)(link)
D/M - Martin gets a bit too... enthusiastic during sex, and accidentally hurts Douglas enough that they need to take him to the hospital.
Rather that getting off, Martin is left sitting next to his partner's hospital bed, red as a tomato as they explain to the doctors how Douglas hurt his... ahem.

Either platonically or in a d/m relationship- Douglas is really, really sad or worried about something. He pushes everyone else away but Martin, to the captain's touched surprise, is the one person he will allow to comfort him. Basically d/m or d & m hurty comforty goodness please. Recs also gratefully received... Thanks :)

Douglas and Martin play monopoly

(Anonymous) 2015-02-04 01:03 am (UTC)(link)
I'm just really curious to see which pilot would win a game of Monopoly. Martin's got loads of budgeting experience and probably a Monopoly manual, but he's also got rotten luck... Douglas would of course rely entirely on luck and zero strategy.

Bonus points if it's D/M and almost ends their relationship through sheer frustration.

I'm not sure who would win but the resulting argument because who doesn't argue over Monopoly would be like World War Three... Only without the countries, just mutually assured destruction until they come to their senses!

Douglas likes fixing things for people he cares about, even if it might cost him something. But he doesn't like them finding out he's had to sacrifice to do it. So when one of his fixing plots ends up with him in real danger, or hurt, he pretends everything's fine. Until it's not.

developing D/M - Douglas wants to be dominated

(Anonymous) 2015-02-05 10:38 am (UTC)(link)
All his sexually active life, what Douglas has yearned for is for someone to just claim him. Not a full on BDSM relationship, but just to be completely manhandled once in a while, pushed up against walls and groped, ordered around sexually, held down and fucked hard for hours, kept on the edge until it suited his partner to let him come. Unfortunately for Douglas, he's always been tall and strong and his partners that have been interested in anything like that have wanted him to be in control of them. Douglas has always been a considerate lover and gone with what his lovers desired, saving his own fantasies to be just that, fantasy.

Then one day, when the playful flirting with his short, slight, ginger captain starts getting serious, rather than the usual dynamic he finds that the Supreme Commander extends his domain beyond the cockpit of the aeroplane, whether he's aware he does or not.


TLDR: Douglas wants to be dominated. When their relationship becomes sexual it turns out Martin is surprisingly dominant.

D/T/M - royal polyamory rules

(Anonymous) 2015-02-05 11:26 am (UTC)(link)
Due to some ancient laws of royal succession forgotten about (until the princess married two men at once to form a polyamorous relationship), when a person of royal blood has more than one consort, any sexual act where impregnation is possible must involve all partners equally contributing to the act of reproduction.

Martin and his habit of abiding by all the rules interprets this (with a bit of blushing) as double-penetration. Douglas and Theresa are both very interested in this idea, and rules are sometimes made to be followed. For the good of the sovereignty of course.

I'm sure you wanted something much more deep and serious, but this is what popped into my head.

-----


Martin: Oh, God. I think we're dead. We're stood on a cloud, in a garden, and there's a gate... Oh God, oh God.

Douglas: Oh, she's done up the place since I last visited. 

Martin: I remember turbulence, lightening, then... Nothing. Suddenly being here.

Douglas: Oh, I wouldn't worry.

Martin: Don't worry?! I'm DEAD!

Douglas: Can't get any worse then, can it? So no need to worry.

God: Douglas! 

Martin: Ahh! Where did she come from?

Douglas: She didn't come from anywhere, Martin. Omnipresent.

Martin: What? Excuse me, Madam, but who are you, and am I dead?

Douglas: Let me introduce you both. God, this is Martin, my captain. Martin, this is my ex-wife, God.

Martin: God's a woman? Sorry, sorry - I didn't mean it like that. I'm a feminist, I swear. I have a t-shirt that says I am - please don't send me to Hell... Please.

God: I wouldn't send you to Hell, dear; that devil's a right cow. But I'm afraid you are a bit dead, technically.

Martin: Oh, God.

God: Yes?

Martin: But why? Why? I mean, why?

God: It's Douglas' fault. He never visits. 

Douglas: Darling...

God: Don't darling me! Divorce or no divorce, we split amicably, so you should visit. Your daughter misses you.

Martin: God is your ex-wife? What? Daughter? 

Douglas: Oh, Darling, she's all grown and doesn't need visits from her dad all the time and we talk regularly. If she wanted to visit me herself she could.

God: She certainly cannot. Not what happened to her brother!

Douglas: Oh, that was over two thousand years ago. And he didn't exactly keep a low profile, letting everyone know just how well connected he was, daft sod. Though, I still think two thousand years is an excessive time to ground the lad, even if he did accidentally end up creating his own religion.

God: We've talked about this, Dougla-

Martin: Am I to understand that God has killed me so that she can bicker with you, Douglas?!

God: I'm not bickering! I just called him up... For a chat.

Douglas: Bored were you?

God: Yeah, it's a bit quiet. You?

Douglas: Oh, not too bad. Bought a flat, thinking of replacing the Lexus. But you knew all that... Omnipresent and all.

God: Polite to ask, though. 

Martin: Omnipresent. You really watch over us? You know everything we do, even when we're alone?

God: Yes, Martin. And I know what you get up to on boring nights in alone. Naughty boy.

Martin: YOU REALLY WATCH THAT?!

God: No Martin. I don't. I'm an all powerful deity, I have better things to do than watch three and a half billion men wank.

Douglas: She lies. I once caught her watching Paul Newman with his hands down his pants.

God: It was the 60s, Douglas! And keep your voice down - he's here now... He makes the most heavenly salad dressings. Anyway, want to come in and sit down? I can have someone fetch tea and those nice brittle honey biscuits from the Mesopotamian era.

Martin: No! Sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but Is there any chance of a resurrection?

Douglas: I've told you, Martin. Don't worry. 

Martin: But- but-

Douglas: Anyone else good come up recently?

God: Rik Mayall. He's one of my favorites at the moment. Absolutely hilarious.

Douglas: Oh yes, good one. 

God: Seeing anyone? 

Douglas: You know I'm not...

God: I might have to send my favorite winged archer after you.

Douglas: No match-making! So stop looking at Martin with that smirk. He's not interested.

Martin: What?

God: Yes he is. Omniscient, remember. All-Knowing.

Martin: What, what?

Douglas: All-Meddling more like. Tell you what, what if I pop up for dinner this weekend?

God: Oh, I'll invite Rik! And do bring along Martin once he's recovered from the whole "meeting God" thing.

Douglas: Well, you do make an impression.

God: That's why you married me, Darling. See you Saturday night? 7:30?

Douglas: Why not. Come on, Martin. 

Martin: Douglas, why are you clicking your fingers.... Douglas! We're back in the cock-pit! The storm cloud is behind us! We're alive!

Douglas: Told you not to worry. When I told you I was a Sky God I wasn't kidding. I got the title in the divorce.

Martin: Oh, my... I just met God!

Douglas: And you asked her if she watched you masturbate. Nice one... Most people go for 'What's the meaning of life?', but at least you were original.

Martin: Oh, God.

Douglas: Exactly. Also, what are you doing Saturday night?

crisis of confidence

(Anonymous) 2015-02-15 10:45 am (UTC)(link)
All his newfound confidence doesn't help when Martin messes up something simple but vital while flying with SwissAir. It's waived off by his Captain with a mild reprimand, but he still feels a crushing sense of worthlessness, like he'll be fired and that he's not capable of doing the job. When he gets back to his flat in Zurich, he sinks lower and lower with no one to talk to outside of work. Calling anyone feels like a confirmation of failure, so he doesn't call anyone and keeps sinking lower, calling in sick for his next scheduled flight, not leaving his flat.

Someone shows up at his door the next morning and helps him find his confidence again.

Any pairing.

Martin shuffled to the door, expecting the knocker to be another welcoming neighbour with a plate of home-made fudge, perhaps; or maybe a cuckoo-clock salesman, whatever.

"Oh-oh-oh, Captain!" he said upon opening the door, shock widening his eyes. His listless slump straightened up without thought.

"Ah, please, it's Thierry, we're not at work," said Loutre, with a kind smile. After a moment he added, "Please, may I come in?"

"Oh! Yes! Yes, please do," said Martin, finally closing his gaping mouth and standing aside. "Can-can I get you - get you anything? Anything to drink? Tea? Coffee? Fudge?"

Captain Loutre - Thierry - shook his head, still with the kind, concerned smile. "I came to see if you needed anything, Martin," he said.

"Oh! No, no, no. I don't need anything. I'm fine. Fine, yes, perfectly fine. Fine."

"I am very glad to hear that," said Thierry. "I was concerned when you called in sick, and then did not come in again this morning."

"Oh! Oh, uh, yeah, uh, I'm, uh, uh, better now. Fine, in fact. Yes. Fine," said Martin. "Thank you," he added belatedly.

Thierry smiled again, less concerned, still kind, and maybe a bit conspiratorial. "Excellent! It would be troubling, in a promising first officer, if he became sick every time a little thing goes wrong. Little things do have a tendency to go wrong, on occasion."

"Ha! Don't I know it!" said Martin, relaxing for the first time. "You don't have to tell me about little things going wrong. Big things too, I know all too well. Please, won't you have a seat?" he added, finally remembering some manners. "Are you sure you won't have tea or coffee? It would be no trouble - no trouble at all. The fudge is very good, too."

"Ah, no, I must be going along to the office in a moment," said Thierry, taking a seat. "This is good, what you tell me, about handling the things that go wrong. After all, what would Captain Rory say to an officer who bailed at the first sign of difficulty?"

"Captain... Captain Rory?" The penny dropped. "How - how do you know about Captain Rory?" Martin asked.

Thierry laughed. "Who does not know Captain Douglas Richardson, and knowing Richardson, who does not know Rory? He does such a marvelous job, keeping his memory alive."

Martin laughed too, a little uncertainly.

"Now myself," said Thierry, leaning forward with that conspiratorial look again, "I always looked to Captain Thiesli."

"Th-Thiesli?"

"Yes. The name means "gift to God", as you are no doubt aware, and good Lord, did he ever believe it! Oh, the stories I could tell you... But I have to be going now," he said, standing up.

"Oh! Of course," said Martin, walking him to the door. "Thank you so much for stopping by."

"Not at all; I am happy to see you recovered from your indisposition. Listen, Martin," he said, turning in the doorway, "Would you like to ride into the office with me? I am attending a meeting which you might like to sit in on, and on the way I can tell you about this particular time with Captain Thiesli. Oh, oh," he added, laughing, "you will love this story..."

Martin's eyes widened again, this time with pleasure. "Yes. Yes! Absolutely - thank you for inviting me! Just let me - let me grab my coat; I am with you this second."

Soon two sets of footsteps could be heard walking briskly away, and one voice trailing into the distance, saying, "So there we were, over the middle of the Atlantic, with one very unruly passenger, and one very sick passenger..."

long-distance miscommunication (gen or D/M)

(Anonymous) 2015-02-15 02:11 pm (UTC)(link)
After trying to carry on a long-distance friendship/relationship with Douglas for several months, Martin feels that Douglas has moved on and doesn't have time for him anymore, or finds his emails and calls an annoying inconvenience. So, Martin sends a polite, positive, friendly breakup email before crying himself to sleep.

Douglas is shocked by the message. He sets out to prove to Martin that he is still very much invested in his connection with Martin, in a uniquely Douglas way.
