Cabin Pressure Fic Prompt Post Three

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.

This is not a fill

Consider these silly dialogue snippets encouragement for a fill.

"Check the uhhh uhhhh ahhh airspeed."

"Two hundred and seventy knots, Skip."

"Wings still- ohfuckyes oh god - wings - urghh- wings-"

"Wings WHAT, Skip?"

"Give me a break, Arth- oh god - I'm on my knees in the cockpit with my pants around my ankles being buggered by my first officer AND trying to teach you to fly. Urhhhhh! Are the wings still level?"


"Temperature? Oh god, so deep!"

"Same as before, Skip! Douglas, stop growling, I can hardly hear Martin!"


"Err, knots, Skip? Isn't that just the airspeed I just told you?"

"No ahhh, fuck, I mean knot! Ahhh!"


"Hello air traffic control. My name is Arthur. Can you tell me what buttons to press? Skip and Douglas have gone a bit growly and don't want to fly any more."


"Careful of the yoke."

"I'm trying to be careful, but you keep thrusting me up into it!"

"But... I... Can't... Stop!"

"Oh, fuck, don't then, and do that again, hard - we'll just announce turbulence as soon as I can stop panting."

Oh, Tiwtin. If I could write you this, I would. I so would. If I could DRAW omegaverse, I would. :(

That said, even these little mini not-fills of yours make my brain shut down. Hmmm.


edit to add: oh God, I just imagined everything, from the uh-oh moment to we need to land we're all going to die if we don't keep our hands to ourselves-- and poor Arthur doing his best to fly a plane while...

COMIC! You could do it in comic format! I would happily bribe you with smut-fic!
And what do you mean you cant draw omegaverse? You already have!
And bloody brilliantly I may add - Douglas tied to that chair is burned merrily into my retinas.

ARTFILL for "This is not a fill"

[identity profile] 2012-04-01 08:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Tiwtin! Sorry but no, I am not going to make a comic! I should be writing my thesis. :C

But consider this a plaster on the wound:

D/M omegaverse, for laughs, I imagine Arthur thinks it's BRILLIANT he can the pilot for once. For the first 5 seconds that is. Until he realises they might all DIE. And the passangers are asking for coffee. You can't serve coffee AND fly a plane. You just can't.
(Martin will just have to sit on Douglas lap while Arthur and Douglas attempt to land.)
(Martin didn't take his pills because he and Douglas want a child but then they miscalculated and heat wasn't on the wallchart)
(Everything ends well, because Douglas simply is that lucky.)
(Martin is relieved enough to say Arthur can name the child he's now carrying.)
(Douglas switches it to the middle name. Everything STILL ends well.)


There probably is a special place in hell for me now though, ugh :C

That is a thing of great beauty - as is Douglas' arse.

And everything you've written there is perfect!

I oddly love the idea of heat being on the wall chart!

And the goat! THE GOAT!

I love you. Marry me?

Re: ARTFILL for "This is not a fill"

[identity profile] 2012-04-02 02:05 pm (UTC)(link)
I know. People tell me all the time that I am amazing and perfect. How annoying. Or not.

HEAT IS SO ON THE WALLCHART. Probably Carolyn put it on there because she still remembers the last time when Douglas "forgot". Douglas never forgets. GERTI was on standby that day. And the next. And the next.

Marry you? YES. Of course, darling! Here: I already planned everything.

I go to sleep for 6 meager hours and while I am at it you all are fabulous without me?? what the hell!

You are amazing you know right? That's awesome and Douglas' butt is mesmerizing...I love it all, from Arthur's confused expression, to Martin's awkward "situation".

And it's alright, I'll let you know that hell is quite comfy and the company is superlative.

Re: ARTFILL for "This is not a fill"

[identity profile] 2012-04-02 02:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Oops. Sorry! Forgive us?
Well, if you say hell is comfy, all right. Imagine the fun we'll have, the both of us! It will be like looking into a mirror, except not at all. IT IS GOING TO BE AWESOME. Suddenly quite looking forward to it (lies)

LOL, "situation". Oh, what am I doing, our poor boys, it's only because I love them so! *grins*

Re: ARTFILL for "This is not a fill"

[identity profile] 2012-04-02 06:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Yeah yeah, forgiven, if only for the sheer brilliance of this whole thing.

It will be amazing!we're going to party so hard!XD
