Please see the most recent MOD NOTE

(updated 6 June)

Cabin Pressure Fic Prompt Post Two

Welcome everybody. How you got here I have no idea but thank you for coming and welcome again, nonetheless . As you may have gathered this is a Fic Prompting Meme dedicated solely to the hilarious and oh-so-addictive BBC Radio 4 sitcom - Cabin Pressure. I'm aiming for this to be pretty anything goes - but in order for everything to run smoothly, there are a few guidelines. Don't worry - they're not too restrictive.


As you probably all know - our meme now has it's very own database created and maintained by the great Enigel. It both catalogues each and every prompt that we post and provides links to fills. You can find it here: Google Spreadsheet

We also have a Pinboard archive which has been put in place by the lovely [personal profile] oxfordtweed in the place of our late Delicious Archive. This Archive contains a list of all the prompts this meme has to offer - you can find it here: Pinboard Archive

This is a great step forward in making our meme just a little more organised (but not too organised of course. This is Cabin Pressure) which is always a good thing.

So in order to make things easier to archive - 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 OR - well you get the idea :D

It makes it simpler for Enigel and myself to link fills in a clean and clear manner. Following these guildelines will be very much appreciated guys :D


Reprompting is allowed but please include the URL of the original prompt when you do so. It will make it infinitely more easy to Archive which would make both Enigel and I very happy :)

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. NEW - 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. I'm not trying to oppress you RPF writers and enthusiasts, I would just really like to avoid any legal problems.

  6. When you post a fill (or post a new part of a WIP) please go over to the Filled Prompts Post (if it is complete) or the WIP Post (if there are still more parts to come) and, following each post's guideline's, post a link to this fill or new part.


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.

By whatever means you like (be they magical, mystical, concussion-ful or merely prideful and for a bet) Douglas ends up being unable to lie. As a master of all things smooth, suave and not entirely truthful this may possibly lead to some problems.
Of course it may also lead to him revealing a few hidden truths about his feelings towards his collegues too. One of them in particular.

Fill 1/2 - The Shocking Truth

[identity profile] 2011-08-11 08:30 pm (UTC)(link)
"Okay... If you had to have sex with a muppet, which one would it be?" Martin asked.

"You know, Martin, there is probably a point at which boredom is so bad it's preferable to crash into the nearest mountain than continue to try and find new games to stay sane."

"True but we're flying over the sea and it's at least four hours until the nearest mountain... So..."

"Beaker," Douglas answered.

"Really? Why?"

Douglas thought the answer 'because tall, skinny red-heads with terrible luck, and a propensity for getting picked on, make me hot,' wouldn't be a well received, so he opted for: "Process of elimination. You?"

"Oh, err... Gonzo."

"Really..." Douglas said in a deep, amused tone and was just about to make a comment about the  well know saying about nose sizes when Arthur came through the door.

"I'm really, really, really, really bored. Have you two got a game going?"

"Yes, a question game," Douglas said. "If you had to-"

"No," Martin said, interrupting. "We can't ask him that or we'll ruin the childhood he's still in or his answer will give me"

"Oh, well, then. We need a new game, what do you suggest, Arthur...and before you say it, charades is not an option."

"Oh, we can play with my new toy!" Douglas said excitedly.

"New toy?"

"Mum's trying to get me to lie properly. She says 'the lack of an ability to tell even the whitest of lies is impeding my life.' I dont feel any peeding... Anyway she sent off for this little game so that I can practice lying until I can even fool the little machine... Hang on, I'll go get it."

Moments later Arthur reappeared with little box which he opened and pulled out a small white plastic device with a metal hand pad on it.

"Okay, Martin. You try it... Put your hand in here," Arthur said, strapping the red band around the captain's hand. "Okay, now tell the truth."

"My name is Martin Crieff," Martin said, and the three of them watched the indicator blink on 'truth'.

"Now tell a lie," Arthur prompted.

"I own this jet and date super-modelsARGGHHH! What the hell was that?" Martin screeched, pulling his hand back to chest.

"It electrocutes you if you lie. Mum says it's called 'negative reinforcement'," Arthur said, excitedly.

"Your mother really is a beacon of maternal sweetness, isn't she?" Douglas said with a grin.

"And you thought electrocuting the pilots while we were thirty thousand feet over an ocean seemed a good idea?"

"It's only powered by batteries, it completely safe, Martin," Douglas said as the brave captain inspected his palm.

"You try it then," Martin said sulkily.

"Okay," Douglas said slipping his hand into the device.

"Oh, we need a game to go with it!" Arthur said, bouncing.

"Err, well, how about you can only answer yes or no, and we have to get you to admit something embarrassing in 10 questions," Martin proposed. "Whoever asks the question to make Douglas lie wins the round, and if Douglas answers them all truthfully, he wins the round."

"Brilliant... Right, errr... Do you like daffodils?" Arthur asked.

"Daffodils?" Martin asked incredulously. "How is that embarrassing?"

"Yes... They're yellow and cheery and mean summer's coming." Douglas answered with a smug smile and watched the indicator blink at 'truth'.

"Do you masterbate?"

"MARTIIINNN!" Arthur exclaimed, covering his giggle.

"Yes, Martin... I do," Douglas replied slowly and calmly, looking Martin straight in the eye. Martin was the one to blush.

"Arthur, your turn," Martin said with a little cough.

"Do clowns scare you?"

"Yes, don't they scare everyone?" Douglas asked, getting a relieved nod from Arthur. "Seven questions left."

Well the other day I bought furniture and had a dream Douglas and Martin were delivering it to me! As you can see, I've finally gone mad.

So I was wondering if I could have Martin and Douglas just sharing a teasing, fluffy domestic moment delivering furniture. Martin needs Douglas' help or maybe DOuglas is just bored but get them in that van together! <3 Martin/Douglas is always lovely! God knows I need a bit of fluff after all the rioting here in London!

Kisses and cookies to whoever fills this! <3

I was in a bar the other evening (as you do in Ireland) and I saw two plaques on the wall which I thought to be very fitting for Cabin Pressure:

"This is a swell ship for the skipper, but a hell ship for the crew."

... And

"On the order 'Abandon Ship' women and children first, follow me - YOUR CAPTAIN."

If you could in any way make either of these into fills I would grant you three wishes.

...Actually, I might just fill it. Would you mind other characters? Like, say, Zaphod (who would think Arthur is one hoopy frood I'm sure) and Ford?

Arthur gets a boyfriend

[identity profile] 2011-08-09 09:38 pm (UTC)(link)
We've had quite a few prompts about Martin finding his happily ever after with a OMC or a OFC, Douglas too I think and Carolyn as well if I didn't make that up.

What I would love to see now is Arthur getting his own happily ever after with someone, because our favourite steward/bear expert has so much love to give it would be criminal not to give him a nice boyfriend or a girlfriend! :)

I have nothing against Arthur finding a girlfriend, obviously, but OP is leaning more towards Arthur/OMC... But I'll take anything, really, anything at all! Why not, multiple fills! Multiple happy endings for Arthur!

Super extra shiny bonus points in the form of stuffed polar bears if there's a bit of angst somewhere in the story, any kind of angst, before the happy ending all around.

TL;DR Arthur finding his soulmate for life (male or female, filler's choice) and feeling brilliant and happy

Re: Arthur gets a boyfriend

[identity profile] 2011-08-09 11:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Interestingly it is canon that Arthur has had a string of girlfriends, unlike Martin who seems to have had No Luck Ever. I have a feeling though that Arthur's true love would turn out NOT to be a bossy pony club type with an Alice band and a stupid name. Trying to think what instead.

Somewhat inspired by the prompt above.
Douglas starts accompanying Martin on more and more of his man with a van jobs in their free time.
Martin's perplexed.

He doesn't ask for a cut in any of the earnings, so it wasn't about money.
He always says he's just helping out because 'as nice at it is to have someone owe you a colossal favour, it's even nicer to have them owe you a quite a few of them' which Martin would have no trouble believing, if it weren't for the fact that Douglas never seemed to cash in on any of those favours - not even for cheese tray rights

And then it finally hits him one day whilst dropping Douglas off at the flat he was living in after the divorce. There was nobody there waiting for him - he was just as on his own and lonely as Martin himself was.

Do whatever you want with this, but seriously guys, we REALLY need some Douglas H/C on here.

Martin is lying in a coma. Martin's not a pilot, though he's always wanted to be one. So he dreams that he's the captain of a small charter aeroplane. The hospital staff become his crew - Martin's doctor, Douglas, is his first officer, and so on. Other patients and visiting staff become the passengers.

After watching Torchwood Series 2 Episode 5 they mention Ianto's diary and how Jack finds it.

Douglas/Martin vs. professional relationship

(Anonymous) 2011-08-11 10:10 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas and Martin want each other, and they both know. But Martin refuses because he thinks it will disrupt their working relationship and, more importantly, that Douglas will use it to tease him and play power games and threaten his position as Supreme Commander. Unfortunately, Douglas can't prove that he won't unless he's given the chance to show it.

Would love to see them start a relationship and work through the awkward power dynamics and (Martin's) insecurities associated with their job.

Two of my personal childhood favourites that I'm pretty sure qualify as Arthur versions: "We three kings of Leamington Spa" and "While shepherds washed their socks by night".

Anything with Martin Crieff/Martin Davenport. Preferably fluff and h/c, but I'll take anything, I'm desperate.

When Martin tallies up what he's got, his life doesn't seem too bad:

He's married, he does have two kids – Sebastian and Isobelle, and they're really… great.

Except Seb spends hours and hours in his room and Issy isn't ever home, and when she is she's practically glued to her mobile. The council house they live in isn't bad. Just a bit cramped, but it's what they live in because it's what they can afford.

Molly doesn't complain too much – just when Martin drops a hint about how perhaps she could put the dishes in the sink away, or how maybe she could switch shifts so they could actually see one another.

"I'm not the one who faffs around all day in a taxi, pretending to be an actor!" She shouts. "I'm the one actually making money, thank you very much."

And it's true: she manages the twenty-four hour Tesco and usually takes the night shift. When Martin thinks about it, it's probably because she doesn't want to see him.

Which, okay, isn't that wonderful. It's like nobody wants to spend time with him.

Martin sighs and parks his cab around the corner next to a battered white van with the phrase "Icarus Removals" clumsily painted on the side. He remembers that Seb used to get really good marks in art class – he wonders if it's still the case.

When he enters the pub, he sees Martin, pilot Martin, not-paramount Martin slumped at the bar. He straightens up when he sees Martin.

"You came!" He says with a huge smile – it seems to light up his face.

"Yeah, it was…" Martin says with a grin. "I don't go out much, so it…"

"Yeah," agrees Martin. "I don't really have the money for it, but…"

"Carolyn doesn't seem the type to pay very much for what she can get for free," Martin offers, and then realizes how it sounds. "Sorry, I shouldn't criticize your boss…"

"No! No. No. No," Martin replies. "You're right, actually. She doesn't. But… she doesn't really have very much, either. We were in St Petersburg last week and… I hadn't known, not really what she was up against. And then I met Gordon… We had a bird strike, you see, and I made the landing and…."

He rattles on, describing the landing, the adventure with Carolyn's awful ex-husband, Arthur and Douglas, and Douglas' cleverness, and Martin finds himself content to listen, occasionally ask questions.

It's relaxing, in a way. People who ride in his taxi don't like to talk to him. And of course it's the same with his kids. And Molly.

"So then Arthur said that he wished we'd listen to him more and I guess he was right!" Martin laughs as he finishes his story and his pint and Martin joins in the laughter.

"And Douglas really came up with all that?" he asks.

"Yes, he's really quite clever, Douglas is. And it's so hard, Martin, working with that. Because you're just waiting for him to say something, and when you anticipate it, it's even worse. Especially when you lo-…" Martin stops suddenly, sitting stiffly and staring down at his now empty glass with a furious blush rising up his face.

Martin nods. The fact that Martin is in love (in a, if he's being honest, a sort of fucked-up but totally understandable way) with his copilot is so obvious it's painful. But Martin knows exactly what it's like to be hopelessly in love with somebody who doesn't want to be around you – or who wants to belittle you at every turn.

Douglas' constant nitpicking and snide comments sound just like, he realizes, Molly's stony silence or irritated shouting.

And all Martin wants to do, really, is just be an actor, and see Molly smiling at him with that look that says "I love you, and I think you're wonderful no matter what you do."

"Yeah," Martin says. "I… Martin, for what it's worth, I understand."

"You do?" Martin looks up. If his eyes are watering a bit, Martin will choose to ignore it.

"Come on," Martin says. "D'you have time for one more round? On me?"

Martin's smile, his acquiescence, the relieved sag as the tension drains away, tells Martin that he's done the right thing.

For once.
