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.

After falling in someone's pond while moving garden furniture for them, Martin gets home to discover that through either technical fault or student-misadventure reasons he can't take a shower at home.

So he goes to ask if he can dirty up Douglas's shower instead.

Much as Douglas is loathe to fill his bathroom with sludgy, rotting pond-weed, he can't quite resist his shivering, soaked and slightly pathetic looking captain.

Where it goes from there is up to you. Sensuous bathtime sexyfun or cracky Douglas armed with a loofah and Marigolds back-srubbing nonsense.

Douglas/Martin/Arthur threesome

(Anonymous) 2012-02-03 10:41 am (UTC)(link)
With this (not my art) as inspiration, if you need it:

Wouldn't mind it either way if they were in a polyamorous relationship, or Arthur was just a one-time addition to Douglas and Martin's on-going relationship. I just love the image of Martin as the filling to a sandwich of love and lusty fluff; and kisses. I really do love kisses.

(Would prefer no sex pollen, however, everyone in control of themselves, as much as they ever are. ;)


(Anonymous) 2012-02-03 01:18 pm (UTC)(link)
More Arthur!

Give me Arthur in a poly relationship, being his usual brilliant self :)

Arthur Shappey/Molly Hooper

(Anonymous) 2012-02-03 01:27 pm (UTC)(link)
Arthur/Molly. That is all.

I'm sure similar ideas have been prompted before, but I'm on an Aubrey/Maturin spree at the moment and really would adore anyone who did this.

Late 1700s, the Napoleonic War. English sloop Gertie of His Majesty's Royal Navy, commanded by Captain Martin Crieff, new and nervous. Aided by First Lieutenant Douglas Richardson (his rank of Captain being stricken for disobeying escort duties of merchant ships in favour of going after French Prizes), they sail the seas. Arthur is Martin's overenthusiastic and entirely hopeless cook. Carolyn was the purser's wife...until it ended badly and he became a traitor to England. She's now the purser. At first, the crew complained, but then she took on several men twice her own size in a battle. Herc is her suitor from the frigate Caledonia, constantly showing off whenever the two ships meet.

Martin/Douglas any kink, really! PWP is a-okay!

(Anonymous) 2012-02-03 03:35 pm (UTC)(link)
I just want something super dirty and kinky. Give me whatever you've got. Anything you were ever embarrassed to write because you thought people would think it was too dirty? Well, post it below. There is nothing you can write that I won't read.

Multiple kinks? Even better. Anything. But let me just say this: BDSM? Not that dirty, guys. Don't get me wrong. I love it! But I know you can do dirtier than that!

(Anonymous) 2012-02-03 09:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Five times no one stood up for Martin Crieff, and one time somebody did.

Travelling circus

(Anonymous) 2012-02-03 10:31 pm (UTC)(link)
A travelling circus travels with MJN.

Arthur is disappointed that the fire swallower and the sword swallower's meals are just the regular chicken-or-pasta. (Douglas soothes him by explaining that fire and sharp objects would be against the regulations, and they all know how Skip feels about those...)

A For Effort!

(Anonymous) 2012-02-04 02:56 am (UTC)(link)
Character A is eating out/blowing Character B. A is really going at it, just as happy as a clam to be doing this with B. Except A is awful--there's teeth where there shouldn't be, their isn't enough suction--and it's just not sexy and its not going to make B cum. What does B do?

I've kept this ambiguous for nonnie to insert their preferred pairing in slots A and B. I personally don't care, I just want to see what happens here.

Pissplay/watersports...whatever you want to call urophilia

(Anonymous) 2012-02-04 03:05 am (UTC)(link)
inspired by the any-kink prompt above ^^

I'd love to see some hot pissplay in this community. Anything revolving around watersports (of the not-swimming variety, although underwater sex would be super hot too, now that I think about it): desperation, pants-wetting, piss-drinking, piss-showers, whatever.

Any pairing involving Martin would be my preference. Otherwise, have at it!

(Anonymous) 2012-02-04 04:16 am (UTC)(link)
I am a complete sucker for stories where Martin's having a break down over things in his life and Carolyn comes to the rescue in her own prickly-but-alpha-dog-mum way. Please, let there be more angsty hurt/comfort of that variety!

Sherlock spoilers!

(Anonymous) 2012-02-04 07:23 am (UTC)(link)
On the 10th of june, during some kind of party with MJN, Martin fell and hit his head. It was weak, but it inexplicably put poor Martin in a coma for 2 days.
After waking up, the crew noticed he started to act more and more different with each passing day. He noticed things now, like magic or mind-reading. Martin himself couldn't understand what was happening to him.
Then theres the urge to dye his hair black, and this John he keeps dreaming about.
This goes on for 3 years, until he gives up and moves to London to find this man (he's real, Martin feels it), hoping to make sense of all this.
Sherlock's body died when he fell from St Barts, but his mind found Martin's and merged with it gradually.

(posting from phone @ 3 am because this damn idea wouldn't let go)

Spoilers for Sherlock's Reichenbach

(Anonymous) 2012-02-04 02:28 pm (UTC)(link)
If Sherlock is Martin's step-brother... then poor Martin would have The Call. You know, the call of someone telling that his brother's just committed suicide by jumping from a building.

And then he would see the papers with all the things about his brother being a fake, and killing himself out of shame/spite/because he was mentally unstable.

Poor Martin ):

(and if Martin could join the I Believe in Sherlock Holmes movement, that would be awesome.)

Arthur + Marvin

(Anonymous) 2012-02-04 02:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Because there can never, never be enough Hitchhiker's crossovers, and I really want to see how Arthur Shappey and Marvin the Paranoid Android would interact. Especially the reactions of everyone else present. Especially Arthur Dent and Martin's.

a rather cheesy Valentine's prompt :D

(Anonymous) 2012-02-04 09:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I've seen one of the most ridiculous Valentine's Day gift suggestion today:

(Second image, the one in the middle, is the one I've seen in person, so to say.)

So, naturally, I thought of the pointy end and the amount of cheese that is consumed there :D

Could I please have any kind of hilarious shenanigans around this? Arthur seems like the primary suspect, but hey, maybe it's Martin's way of expressing his feelings for Douglas... (The surest way to a man's heart - other than through his ribcage, I mean - is through his stomach, after all...)

Martin's awkward flirting

[personal profile] jenny_starseed 2012-02-05 07:53 am (UTC)(link)
I've been listening to Newcastle today and I couldn't help but love flirty!Martin. I love how he just absolutely sucks at it, puts his foot in his mouth and is nervous as heck.

Can I get more Martin flirting badly fics? So, five times Martin flirted badly, and one time he was very good at it.

Bonus points if at least one of those times was with a girl because I'm a sucker for Martin being flushed and embarassed by a pretty girl.

How Do Aeroplanes Stay Up? HP crossover

(Anonymous) 2012-02-05 07:58 am (UTC)(link)
I seem to have something of a backlog of crossover bunnies to be released...never used to read them, write them, think of every prompt I post is one!!

Re-reading Harry Potter & the Half Blood Prince.

Arthur Weasley's dearest ambition is to find out how aeroplanes stay up.

Please please please in any circumstance whatsoever please he must meet Arthur Shappey who then attempts to explain it to him rather badly but of course he is proud of his knowledge and Mr Weasley is fascinated and believes every word he says and Carolyn and Molly must stand in the background rolling their eyes at the boundless enthusiasum for everything the two Arthurs have.

*and breathe*

TL;DR - Arthur Weasley meets Arthur Shappey and hilarity ensues.

(Anonymous) 2012-02-05 04:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Can I just get Martin hurt/comfort? He's having a spectacularly bad day (even for him) and just as he's getting to the end of his tether someone does something that finally pushes him too far and makes him cry. And the rest of the crew swoop in and defend him (though preferably without killing the culprit this time), and then try to cheer him up. I would love Arthur giving him a hug.

Would prefer no pairings, but I love fics that emphasize how much of a family MJN is.

A spanking! A spanking!

(Anonymous) 2012-02-05 10:26 pm (UTC)(link)
I have a yen for more top!Douglas welting the heck out of Martin's perky little arse before he fucks him. Douglas likes it for the pretty whimpers that a squirmy, sensitised Martin can make - and Martin likes it cause it revs his motor like nothing else. Every time he sits down for days afterwards, if he can still feel it he gets all horny and wiggly all over again.

It's always the ones you least suspect...

(Anonymous) 2012-02-05 11:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Arthur Shappey is the most child-like and kind individual on the MJN crew. He is optimistic to the point of impossibility and his heart - if not his brain - is always in the right place. But don't ever think he's naive. Or that - when the situation calls for it - he won't take someone down if they try to hurt the people he loves.

I dont mind if it's Caroyln or Martin (oh, please, please can it be Martin!) or even a glorious 5&1 fic, just please can I have some BAMF!Arthur?

angel/wing fic.

[personal profile] atlantisgallifrey 2012-02-05 11:20 pm (UTC)(link)
Not sure if there are any other wing!fic prompts here, but I'd really like for Martin to either be and Angel, or to have wings.

what can i say, I had a really weird dream with a winged gingerbatch in it. I was so sure that was an aspirin I took before I went to bed)

Slight spoilers for St Petersburg

(Anonymous) 2012-02-05 11:21 pm (UTC)(link)
The reason why Arthur was so distressed when Gordon turned up in St Petersburg? He thinks his dad's going to take him away. 

Basic story is that Caroyln had to fight really hard to get custody of Arthur in the divorce. I don't know when they broke up exactly, but maybe it was when Arthur was little, and Gordon's lawyer did a hell of a job trying to convince the jury that Carolyn was an unfit parent (history of alcoholism, poor financial stability, w/e). It all turned out ok in the end, but ever since then to Arthur, Gordon has been the bogeyman who he thinks is going to steal him away from his mum. 

The crew find out. Carolyn clearly loves her son and promises him that she'd never let that happen, and the pilots act like big brothers to Arthur and swear to him in their own way that like hell would they ever let Gordon take him away.

Basically: Scared Arthur with Maternal!Carolyn and big brothers Martin and Douglas.

I don't know if we've had this before but with all the ANGST I'm feeling I'd love to read something beautifully fluffy with a smidgen of H/C (because I'm a H/C whore). So here's my prompt-

Douglas finally, after months or possibly years, confesses to Martin his love. Martin however, freaks out completely and runs away. Cue sad/hurt/confused Douglas. Really though, Martin feels exactly the same, he's just never been in a position where someone actually says "I love you Martin" to him. And we all know Douglas never does anything by halves. ;D

I'd love a happy ending where Martin comes back, preferably after Arthur's wise insight on the matter (SKIP HE LOVES YOU!), confesses to Douglas and the two live happily ever after. Smut optional. ;D Happy ending needed! <33

I will love you eternally if this gets filled. Make a sad crocodile happy! <3

(Anonymous) 2012-02-06 04:11 am (UTC)(link)
Insert the phrase "for whatever reason" wherever you see fit in the following prompt:

Arthur and Martin are stranded out in the freezing cold somewhere until Carolyn and Douglas can rescue them. Martin doesn't have a coat. He and Arthur stay close and do their best to preserve body heat until help can arrive, but by the time Carolyn and Douglas get there, Martin is unconscious or nearly so and Arthur is panicking. They get the two of them on to the plane and warm them up with hot chocolate and blankets and blah blah blah fluff yay.

(Martin/Arthur or gen is fine.)

Monty Python's Life of Brian crossover

(Anonymous) 2012-02-06 03:50 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm not sure if this has been asked for yet but... Martin is Brian, or Martin meets Brian

Or maybe just Arthur telling him to always look on the bright side of life

I don't know, all I know is I need this!!
