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.

"Brilliant! Do I get a badge?"

(Anonymous) 2015-03-03 07:42 am (UTC)(link)
Due to some confusion with paperwork or flight regulations or what have you, Arthur is somehow officially designated by the CAA as GERTI's in-flight Air Marshal.

Bonus: No one takes it seriously (except Arthur who takes it very very very seriously in a very Arthury way), until the day that GERTI actually needs an Air Marshal, and Arthur surprises everyone.

Hey, I'm not really sure if I've posted this in the right place or whatever... I have no idea how to use this website... Anyway, could someone write me a fic where Martin falls asleep in Douglas' car? Whatever reason he does it is fine, and I'd preferably like comforting Douglas, but if ya want teasing Douglas or whatever, that's fine :) Thanks!

Naughty lists

(Anonymous) 2015-03-05 03:24 am (UTC)(link)
Inspired by a piece of Sherlock fanart...

Martin and Douglas have been in a relationship for a while now. Everyone likes to gossip about it because of the experience and age gap and they believe there is no way someone like Douglas could be satisfied with Martin. "He's too young, he doesn't know anything. Probably a virgin. hee!"

Cut to Martin overhearing such things one day, and then becomes determine to satisfy Douglas in every way possible. So he makes a list. A kinky list.

Douglas doesn't know what's going on, thinks their relationship as is is fine, but has no problem going along with Martin's sudden urge to be naughty.

Arthur's Flash Mob.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-06 03:39 am (UTC)(link)
Inspired by the recent 'flight attendant flash mob' at a Shanghai airport, Arthur attempts to arrange a similar 'flash mob' at Fitton Airfield for the benefit of some delayed passengers.

Arthur's Rap Safety Briefing

[personal profile] annievh 2015-03-06 04:44 am (UTC)(link)
Inspired by the above prompt and by this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DYA_ivyj3kE

Arthur attempts to rap a safety briefing.

He doesn't fall, he saunters vaguely downwards

(Anonymous) 2015-03-06 07:25 am (UTC)(link)
So I'm obsessed with Florence and the Machine at the moment. And one of her songs 'Falling' kept making me think of Martin. Especially:

'Sometimes I wish for falling
Wish for the release
Wish for falling through the air
To give me some relief
Because falling's not the problem
When I'm falling I'm at peace
It's only when I hit the ground
That causes all the grief'

'I'm not scared to jump
I'm not scared to fall
If there was nowhere to land
I wouldn't be scared
At all'

Because Martin is quite calm and collected in St Petersburg when he's landing Gerti on one engine, and it's not until after they've landed that all the sadness hits them. So I want something, where Martin doesn't so much fall as saunter vaguely downwards, and everything finally goes to hell for him once hes hit the ground. Whether this is in regards to landing Gerti, or whether it is in regards to his entire life going down the drain. And I want someone (Douglas?) helping Martin int he aftermath. Pairing or gen.

TL;DR: Martin doesn't panic when he's falling, when things aren't exactly going his way. He's calm until the moment he touches the ground, and then all hell breaks loose.

"It's... cozy."

Operation: Check on Martin

[personal profile] tiwtin 2015-03-19 09:48 pm (UTC)(link)
“MARTIN! MARTIN! SOMEONE’S AT THE DOOR FOR YOU!”

The voice of Lilly, one of the older students – and it seemed the only one that could be bothered to answer the door, drifted up the stairs to Martin’s attic on a rare, free Sunday morning.

Martin’s shoulders slumped as he stood at his tiny kitchenette. The toast had just popped up, warm and done to perfection, and the tea bag in his cup had reached the perfect point of steeping and only needed milk. Now we’d end up with cold toast and over brewed tea, just to go and answer the bloody door.

“Oh, bollocks,” Martin moaned, wrapping his dressing gown further around his naked body. He glanced forlornly at the tea and then back to the cosy looking bed before heading for the door.

It couldn’t be anyone important. He knew Carolyn was taking Herc off to the Cotswolds for the weekend in hope she could taunt him with more sheep. Arthur was away as well, with his girlfriend and a dressed horse, as he explained it.

The only other visitor the students and himself expected constantly was the TV Licence Detector Van people, and Lilly would have sounded far more harassed.

Martin got to the bottom of the stairs to find Lilly at the doorway to the living room.

“Oh, I invited them in, Martin. Didn’t think you’d mind,” she added as she left him to pop his head around the living room door.

“Mum?!”

“MARTIN!”

“Martin!”

“Caitlin? Simon? Whaat- ARGHHH!” Martin gruffed out as Simon picked him up.

“How are you doing little brother!”

“Put me down!” Martin said, feebly smacking Simon on the shoulders as usual.

“Yes, do put him down!” Caitlin moaned. “He’s got nothing on under that dressing gown and it’s riding up… Ewwww!”

Simon dropped Martin quickly and stepped back with a scrunched face as Caitlin laughed.

“Well, that’s one way to stop you picking me up,” Martin snarked at his brother as he wrapped the robe about himself tightly. “What are you doing here anyway?”

“Got roped into it-” Simon moaned before Caitlin cut in.

“Mum wanted to go to an antiques show on today in Fitton and asked me to come. Simon was due to visit Mum anyway so we all came.”

“But why are you HERE, here!?” Martin asked, perplexed.

“Mum didn’t want you to feel left out if we were both going – not that anyone in their right mind would feel left out of an antiques fair in Fitton,” Simon explained.

“We tried to call you last night and this morning on your land-line and your mobile phone, but there was no response so Mum wanted to pop by,” Caitlin continued.

Martin remembered the wall mounted telephone getting knocked off the handset as he came in last night and he’d been far too busy to replace the receiver. He also hadn’t charged or taken his mobile out of his pocket since his flight the day before.

“Oh, God. I’m sorry. Look – today’s not great for me to go to an antiques fair with Mu- Errrr… Where’s Mum?” Martin said looking around the living room as though his mother might be hiding behind the sofa.

“Probably gone for a nosey of your house. She was as keen as mustard to have a look around – you’ve never invited us here before you know,” Caitlin berated.

“She can’t just go wondering off! This is a student house! And- And I have some privacy!”

“Privacy, in a student house? Doubtful,” Simon remarked as Caitlin headed for the hallway.

“Hey, where are you going?” Martin called after her.

“I want a nosey, too!” she called back.

“No! You can’t just come in here unannounced and-”

“I bet your kitchen’s full of takeaway boxes, cheap booze and ratty marijuana plants,” Simon said, pushing past Martin and heading for their shared kitchen.

“Just stay put, the lot of you!” Martin cried out as he followed them out into the hallway. He saw Caitlin disappear off up the stairs and was about to go and get her when he heard Lilly’s response. She has clearly overheard his brother’s slight.

“I’ll have you know we only eat organic vegetables in this house, and as agricultural students our pot-plants are far from ratty, I’ll have you know!”

Martin heard his brother’s booming voice respond. “I was right about the booze, though!” and made the call to save his flat-mate from his horrendous brother before she had to slap him rather than go after his sister and mother.

“It was Twenty-Twenty and Malibu and coke in my day,” Simon was saying as Martin entered the kitchen. Lilly looked unimpressed, arms folded as Simon was inspecting an empty bottle of Cava, one of many that littered the worktop ready for the recycling bin. “Taboo and lemonade… Blue Nun wine… Peach Concord sparkling wine- That was posh for us!”

“SIMON! Sorry, Lilly. Clearly nostalgia is setting in,” martin said as Simon rambled on to the poor girl.

“Martin, hadn’t you better-” Lilly ended her sentence by motioning her head up to the ceiling.

“Oh, bugger. BEHAVE YOURSELF!” He warned and dashed from the room and up the stairs. He tried two of the rooms before finding Caitlin in the main bathroom pondering the contents of the bathroom cabinet.

“I take it that most of the students here are boys?” Caitlin enquired, head still firmly in the cabinet, picking up random bottles and inspecting their labels.

“Well, yes. It’s an agricultural college, tends to attract more males. Why?”

“Because there’s about five different boxes of condoms in here – you’re either really optimistic or there are lots of boys in the house. I bet these are yours,” she said, pulling out a pack of Durex ‘Extra Safe’.

“Get- Get out of there!” Martin said, pushing closed the cabinet and snatching the box off her. “Besides, that’s a sexist comment from a so-called feminist, I’m surprised. Why couldn’t they be girl’s condoms?”

“Pft…” Caitlin replied moving her interest to the crowd of bottles on the window sill and martin put the box back in the cabinet. “Girls would keep them in their bedside drawers, not have them on display as a tragic display of virility and dominance – It’s like peeing on the toilet seat,” she said, glancing over at the toilet which, Martin acknowledged, could do with a bit of a clean.

“Would you PLEASE go back to the living room? And where’s Mum?” Martin asked in frustration, coming back out into the first floor landing and fearing the worst.

“MUM!”

Martin popped his head back into the bathroom to find Caitlin now sniffing at Josh’s bottle of Armani Code.

“Stop that, will you? Where the bloody hell is Mum?”

“I’m here, Dear,” Wendy said from behind Martin.

Martin whipped around at the sound of her voice. “Where’ve you been?”

“Just having a little potter about, that’s all. It’s a big house, isn’t it? And such well looked after plants… There’s a lily in bloom in the windowsill in the hall. ”

“Well they are agricultural student, Mum,” Caitlin said, emerging from her inspection of the bathroom. “Well, you coming or not, Martin?”

“Oh, leave him here,” Wendy replied. “He’s not even dressed, we’ll be late! All the best trinkets will be gone!”

“Sorry Mum, I kind of have plans for today, anyway. And sorry my phone wasn’t plugged in.”

“Not to worry, Dear. Come on, Caitlin, let’s leave your brother in peace.”

Martin followed them both back downstairs with promises for a visit soon. Wendy beckoned her other son from a now murderous looking flat-mate and he waved them off at the door before shutting it with relief.

His tea would be cold. His toast would be cardboard. But at least his bed would be warm and it was Sunday and he had nowhere to be but under the covers of his bed.

With a last apology to Lilly for his brother, he dashed back upstairs and climbed the final ladder steps into his attic.

Martin shut the door back onto his small room with a sigh and looked over to his bed.

“Oh, God… Mum… She came in here, didn’t she?”

“Yep,” Douglas replied, lying with a hand propped under his head, munching on toast that had been buttered and sliced into four neat triangles. The way his Mum always cut toast or sandwiches.

“She was even kind enough to finish the toast while you chatted with your sibling. I did offer to finish the tea and offer her a cup, but we both agreed due to my state of undress it was best I remained under your sheets.”

“Oh, bugger!”

“Oh, it’s not that bad. I got you out of antiques shopping in exchange for a visit next weekend for Sunday dinner – we’re both invited… and I saved you all that awkward ‘coming out’ business… I think I deserve a fresh cuppa for that!” Douglas said, raising his almost empty cup.

“She made you tea as well?!”

~oOo~

“Mission accomplished!” Simon said. Caitlin and Wendy gave Martin their last wave as the car pulled away. “Though I still don’t know why we just couldn’t have questioned him about his well-being.”

“Because, Dear, Martin’s a proud and private boy… He’d clams up and makes excuses every time I ask him about his personal life. Which is why we need to check on him from time to time.”

“Well, as requested, Mother, I checked the kitchen. Martin is fed organic vegetables regularly by the students – especially that girl – she seems to have a weak spot for him. We might end up meeting her again,” Simon announced, tapping his finger against his nose as he drove.

“I don’t think so, Dear. She didn’t seem our Martin’s type,” Wendy said with a smile from the passenger seat. “Organic vegetables are very good though. He never eats enough.”

“And none of the purist student alcoholic fodder for this lot either. When he drinks with them, he’ll have that’s girl’s wine – posh Cava stuff. Made in the champenoise traditional method in Catalonia, I’m told…and not crap stuff, despite coming from Tesco - which I never knew. I Might take some home for the wife.” Simon added.

“Good, good,” Wendy reported back. “Eating well. He did seem to have put on a few pounds, as well.”

“Probably. God, I saw far too much of him when Simon picked him up, but yeah. Looking after himself for a change.”

“Or someone’s looking after him… I’m telling you, that girl was very defensive of our Martin… especially when I started inspecting his food cupboard.”

“Caitlin? Health and hygiene check?”

“Well, nothing worrying in the medical cabinet, other than a youthfully optimistic array of prophylactics which can be mainly attributed to the other students. No pills, no prescriptions. Standard earplugs next to the bath for his Dizzy-earitis, but that’s all.”

“It has a proper medical term, Caitlin as you well know…” Wendy retorted.

“And the bedroom?” Simon prompted his mother.

Wendy smiled. “Small, cosy… Not much furniture, and I think I’ll buy him a picture or two for the walls, but well… I think that room had everything in it that Martin needed to be happy.”

Non-con. H/C.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-09 06:43 am (UTC)(link)
One of the people from Douglas Air England days is in Fitton for some reason, and they find that even though Douglas should be depressed or upset about his life, he's content, happy even. And they become enraged, because maybe way back when, Captain Douglas Richardson ruined their life, and so they think that Douglas doesn't deserve to be happy. They find the opportune moment to drug and kidnap Douglas. Who wakes to the guy raping him. And it takes all of his will power not to break there and then. He endures the rape, viciously bruising his wrists and ankles struggling against his bonds, and then when the man is finished with him he simply cuts Douglas free and walks out the door. Douglas starts breaking down slowly, with his hands trembling so violently he can barely dress himself, and then he walks in the cold night air to Martin's flat, where he let's himself finally break, because somehow Martin, goddamn him, is safety, and that's all Douglas wants right now.

Can be D/M, not fussed. I just want Douglas being broken in the worst way possible, and Martin trying to pick up the pieces.

Vertigo.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-11 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
Martin and Douglas climbing into an elevator together and they're fine until the elevator starts moving and Martin experiences extreme vertigo and has to lean heavily against the elevator wall with his eyes closed, as he breathes deeply. Douglas thinks Martin is claustrophobic, but Martin can't correct this because if he opens his mouth, he knows he's going to throw up. So when the elevator doors open, Douglas tries to lead Martin outside for fresh air, but all Martin wants is to sit down and close his eyes for a few moments until the world stops spinning.

When you finally trust me. Finally believe in me. I'll let you down.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-12 12:10 am (UTC)(link)
The crew has to endure one of those godawful Team Building Workshops. Where you go and spend a day (or two) doing trust exercises and team building with your colleagues. Everyone seems to be doing great, until it's Martin's turn to do the trusting. He refuses to fall when they're trying the trust fall. And he won't move when they try to guide him, blindfolded, through a 'minefield' and he stubbornly sits on the ground when they blindfold him and try to make him find someone calling directions to him while they're outside. The rest of the team is hurt by this development but Martin refuses to feel bad for it, and they keep trying to convince him to try again. After weak protests, he just says "No, I know how this works! You'll catch me when I fall so I'll think I can trust you, and then you'll lead me into all the obstacles in the 'minefield' and then you'll lead me into the river or something! You can't humiliate me if I don't play along!" and then he leaves. And it dawns on the other three (four if Herc is there?!) that someone's used the trust exercises against Martin before. (Personal headcanon says they did it in school, because we used to do these trust exercises at school and you learnt really quickly how to fall in ways that would limit injury, and how to carefully navigate around obstacles we couldn't see, and how to focus on a particular voice and follow it rather than its instructions. ) Cue the crew finding their own ways to get Martin to trust them.

TL;DR: On a team building workshop, the crew discover Martin is really good at trust exercises, as long as he's not the one expected to do the trusting. They set themselves the task of solving this issue in their own ways.

Snakes on a plane. Snake bite. Possible character death/amputation.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-12 01:16 am (UTC)(link)
'Martin: *door slam* So, Douglas. When exactly were you going to tell me you were smuggling snakes?

Douglas: I'm not smuggling snakes, Martin.

Martin: Of course not, my mistake. When were you going to tell me you were smuggling a snake? In any case, I don't want to alarm you, but your cargo bit me about three minutes ago. I don't know much about snakes, but in this case I think I might *just* live long enough for you to perform an emergency landing, mightn't I?

Douglas: Shit.

Martin: Quite. If I lose my arm because of you, I don't think I have to tell you how angry I'll be. *pause* Russell's Vipers, Douglas, really?!'

That's it, that's your prompt. I want all the angst, and Douglas feeling ridiculously guilty, and Martin being the calmest, snarkiest son of a bitch during the twenty (or so) minutes grace period before the effects of the venom start kicking in. Because Martin seems to be very in control of himself in situations where his life is in danger. I do not care if Martin dies or loses his arm or what, though if he does survive and doesn't lose his arm, I want him to have a scar that he constantly has to hide from Douglas, otherwise the older man gets all broody and apologetic. Gen or D/M.

Figure skating AU

(Anonymous) 2015-03-15 09:23 am (UTC)(link)
Confident but aging former skating star Douglas Richardson is assigned to mentor the tiny MRN Skating Club's new lead prospect, the fervent yet hapless-seeming Martin Martin Crieff. At first the decision to make him the star of the Winter Festival skating display seems ludicrous, even though Martin's enthusiasm and dedication are unparalleled. But when Martin isn't sabotaging himself through self-doubt and over-thinking, true talent and ability gleams among the rough to the experienced eye. The more time Douglas spends with Martin, the more potential he sees... on and off the ice.

TLDR: Figure skating! Romance!

Culinary adaptation.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-17 08:26 am (UTC)(link)
With the new actual wages coming in, Martin starts eating more variety than he has in the past decade. That's when he discovers he's become allergic or intolerant or nauseated by just about everything in Swiss cuisine except potatoes, toast and pasta.

Douglas finds out and goes out of his way to send Martin little treats from the UK that don't trigger his reactions, or spend time in his kitchen back in Fitton, developing recipes that help Martin adapt to the new richer fare. (Arthur tries too, but it doesn't help nearly as much)

cooking lessons - D/M

(Anonymous) 2015-03-19 10:08 am (UTC)(link)
Martin is determined to make a fancy dinner for Douglas when he first moves in with hi. It is an unequalled disaster. Martin is crushed, but Douglas is genuinely touched by the intent.

Over the next few months Douglas sets about showing Martin how to cook as they start life together, turning cooking into a sort of comfortably intimate dance. On their six month anniversary of moving in, Martin tries making a less ambitious dinner than he first tried with wild success, and a good time is had by all.

Man-With-A-Van Martin is so lonely he becomes invisible. Nobody notices and he is never seen again.

Until Douglas. Who would really bloody like to know how the homeless-looking silent guy keeps getting onto the plane without anyone else noticing.

A little blasphemous, if you're properly religious. I had this little scenario pop into my head and I had to write it.


Douglas: You know Arthur, our destination has a very familiar name...

Arthur: Abu Dhabi?

Douglas: No...

Arthur: Boston?

Douglas: No...

Arthur: Cremona!

Douglas: Arthur, are you just going through the alphabet?

Arthur: Yeah, I am actually -

Douglas: Of course you are. But, seeing as our destination is in Ireland, I doubt it's any of those.

Arthur: Well, what is Douglas?

Douglas: Now, put another comma in that sentence and you're correct; we're going to Douglas in Ireland.

Arthur: ...

Douglas: Are you alright?

*Door opens, then closes*

Martin: Morning.

Douglas: Good morning, Martin.

Arthur: ...

Martin: Arthur? Arthur, a-are you alright?

Arthur: ...

Martin: Douglas, what did you do to Arthur? Successfully found his off button?

Douglas: Sorry to disappoint Martin, but no. I told him we were going to Douglas and he just... froze.

Martin: Why on earth -?

*Chair knocked over, startled yell from Martin*

Arthur: Brilliant!!! We know a saint!

Martin: ...

Douglas: ...

Martin: I know that would make great sense to you Arthur, but would you mind explaining?

Arthur: Well, they name places after saints, don't they? Like... Ottery St Mary and places like that.

Martin: Arthur, Douglas isn't a -

Douglas: *Overly dramatic* Oh, my cover is blown. My dear Arthur, you have been far too clever for me.

Arthur/Martin: Really!?/Douglas, no!

Douglas: Oh, my son -

Martin: Douglas, get you're hands off my face.

Arthur: And Martin's you're son!!! BRILLIANT!!!

Douglas: Er, no Arthur -

Martin: *Groan* Oh, God. You're going to hell, Douglas.

Douglas: No, I'm good friends with Saint Peter.

Martin: *Muttering* That's not even how it works...

Douglas: *Whispering* And how would you know?

Martin: I - I -

Arthur: I can't believe we work with a saint, Skip!

*Door opens, then shuts*

Carolyn: What's all this about saints?

Arthur: Mum! Douglas is a saint!

Carolyn: Oh, Lord...

Martin: Arthur, Douglas is having you on. He isn't a saint, he's more likely to be the next king of hell...

Douglas: Now Martin, you need to have a little faith -

Carolyn: Douglas, stop this nonsense. Arthur, the closest thing we have to a saint is a Martyr; and that's Martin. Douglas steals, he lies, he cheats and he calls himself a Sky God; if he's a saint, I'm the Easter Bunny.

Arthur: Oh. That would be -!

Martin, Douglas and Martin: Brilliant?

Arthur: Yeah!

Kind of like Die Hard2

(Anonymous) 2015-03-21 11:40 am (UTC)(link)
MJN lands at a small airport and before they or their passengers can disembark, there is a lockdown of the airport due to a bomb threat or something and they are told to remain aboard Gerti until the all-clear sounds.

Frustrations are high and Arthur is trying to keep everyone entertained 'take off delay' style, when someone notices some movement on the tarmack. It quickly becomes clear that the airport has been taken over by an armed group that doesn't appear to be police or military, and trying to contact ATC gets nothing but static.

It's up to Gerti's crew to liberate the airfield, in true MJN style.

Douglas is a vampire, though he is not a big fan of his fellow vampires because most of them are as elegant as an opium user. One day when meeting up with his sire, Douglas is handed a glass of blood.

"Hmmm," Douglas said, taking a sniff like he would to a glass of wine. "Virgin, aged very well. I'm surprised. Did you find yourself a priest?" He took a small sip. It was delicious.

"Oh, that would be the obvious choice, wouldn't it? No, Douglas, you'll enjoy this."

"Really? Why is that?"

"It's from a pilot."

Douglas/Martin

(Anonymous) 2015-03-24 05:33 pm (UTC)(link)

Douglas trembling, getting overcome with emotion, straining himself to keep moving during sex. Maybe he's scared he'll lose Martin. Maybe something happened that affected him emotionally, or maybe their relation is still new and he, Douglas the Skygod, is insecure. Maybe it's something else entirely. Douglas wants to show Martin that he loves him through his actions, make his lover feel good, but he isn't prepared for for what it does to himself. (I leave Martin's reaction up to the writer) :)
