Prompting Post V

Please see the most recent MOD NOTE and ADDENDUM

(updated 5 July)

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.

Take Care 2/?

(Anonymous) 2012-06-17 10:58 pm (UTC)(link)
I couldn't help the Sherlock reference. I just made it a tv show in this fic instead of a cross over. So no worries. :)


The best thing about Mum getting the house (and jet) in the settlement, was that Arthur got the guest house. Mum didn't like having visitors so she had authorized Arthur to decorate however he wanted. He even had his own private drive. Martin hadn't felt like being in public for their Negotiations. Which was the first thing a couple in a BDSM relationship did before they actually had sex.

Arthur was determined to make up with Martin. He still felt guilty over his mistake. But Martin didn't seem to be as timid as he'd been before. It took the whole drive before Martin relaxed enough. They talked about all sorts of things, mostly MJN and how Mum and Herc would be a cute couple. They talked about Douglas dating another woman, which wasn't serious. It seemed he'd given up on marriage. But he'd kept the house in the divorce from Helen, so he was all right.

They talked about the student's Martin shared with; and how even though he still wasn't a paid member of MJN - his moving business was booming. Privately Arthur still thought Martin was too thin but if Martin said his finances were better, Arthur was prepared to take him at his word. Martin was laughing and smiling by the time they pulled up at the guest house.

It stood on a small hill behind the main house. It was two stories tall with a wrap around deck that held sun bathing chairs, tables, and out door grilling station and to the left of that a pool which could be heated in the winter if Arthur wanted a swim. It was hot, but thankfully they'd changed into their normal clothing before leaving work.

"Oh wow," Martin was duly impressed.

"Mum gave me the guest house, but I use my pay from MJN for the rest of life's necessities. I can grill? I have beer," and with that Arthur took Martin's hand and pulled him up the stair case of the deck to the first floor.

"I don't think we should be drinking and negotiating at the same time," Martin suggested. Any other Dom he'd been with would have hit him by then, but Arthur just smiled.

"Ooooh...! you're right Skipper, so we can skip the beer, I've soda!"

Martin laughed as he was dragged into the house. It was nice and cozy. Arthur had white leather sofa and love seat settled at a square with a huge television set on the main wall. To the right of that was a stair case to the second floor. The kitchen was behind the living room set up with a small square table and chair set to the right of that in the small dinning room area.

Arthur was all ready at the fridge. He brought out Pepsi and two glasses from the cupboard. He put ice in both glasses and then he set a glass and the can in front of Martin who had taken a seat at the bar in the kitchen. "What should we do for dinner?" Arthur questioned.

"I don't know, what do you have?" Martin asked.

Arthur smiled. This was good. This was very good. He was glad that since this was just a Negotiating dinner, that Martin was actually happy to be there. Martin had popped open the can of soda and was slowly pouring it into the glass so that the foam didn't take up a lot of room, or makes a mess.

"I've a ton of stakes, we could bar-ba-que!"

"Okay, I can make salad if you've got any veg," Martin replied.

"That'd be great!"

Together they made up the marinade, and Martin brought all the salad making out to the deck while Arthur heated up the grill. They chatted, this time, about the things they'd like to do in bed, and what their relationship would be in general.

"I won't be all domineering on you at work, okay?" Arthur pointed out as he checked on the stakes. "I know how important that is to you,"

"Thanks," Martin now looked genuinely happy. "I...appreciate that,"

"Okay, now you need to tell me what you don't like," Arthur said. "I'd love to spank you some time, if that's okay?" he was turning over the stakes.

"That's...fine," Martin nodded. He had chopped up the lettuce, onion and cucumbers by then and now he added carrots to the huge bowl of greenery.

"I don't want to do any scat play or water sports," Martin felt his face go red. He couldn't help but shudder at some of the memories that came unbidden to his mind. Arthur watched closely but didn't question him further.

He nodded; "sure thing, Skipper."

"Thanks," Martin shrugged off the bad memories. Arthur was different, and it wasn't his fault that he - Martin - couldn't deal very well with the kindness. Of course, there were all sorts of Dom's in the world. Martin just wondered how long his luck would hold out for him to be with Arthur. What if he got bored? what if there was a kink Arthur really wanted to do but Martin just couldn't? what if...

"Martin?" Arthur's soft call of his name brought Martin out of his reverie.


"You cut yourself," and then he was currying away from the meat. Martin cursed under his breath and used the dish towel to sop up the blood from the rather nasty cut. Thankfully the blood hadn't made it to the cutting board or veg but the tip of the knife was decorated with quickly congealing blood.

Arthur was at his side with the first aid kit. He took Martin's hand in his own and softly dabbed at the cut with the towel. "It doesn't look deep, so you won't need stitches," he stated. And then he was putting Neosporin on the cut and a couple of bandaids. Once Martin's cut was taken care of, the knife was washed well with soap and hot water before it was used once again to cut up the remaining veg.

"Sorry about that, I wasn't paying attention," Martin was awash with guilt.

"Accident's happen, Skipper," Arthur softly kissed Martin's temple. "It's all right, I'm not mad. That's a silly thing to be mad about," Arthur teased gently.

Martin felt like crying. He couldn't compare Arthur to the other Dom's he'd had. That was unfair to Arthur. He knew he was a good guy, and he'd never gotten mad at Martin, or hit Martin, or hurt him on purpose. If it happened, they were all accidents.

"I'm sorry, it's just hard for me..." Martin coughed into his injured hand to clear his throat.

Arthur rushed back over to the grill. The meat wasn't burnt but it was done. He put both pieces on plates and then shut the grill off. He took the plates over to Martin and handed him one.

"It's fine, I understand. I wasn't thinking about that earlier. I'm sure my behavior is very confusing,"

"It is," Martin admitted. They sat down at the table and loaded the rest of their plates with salad. Then they dug in. They ate for several moments in silence. It was companionable despite the troubles.

"I won't hurt you, you know, like...domestic abuse or anything," Arthur said at length.

"I know, it's hard for me to accept though," Martin said around a bite of salad.

"I know, and that's why I'm gonna re-train you," Arthur replied.


"I'm going to prove to you that you don't need to be afraid of me," Arthur smiled, "it's going to be brilliant!" he was using his chair as a mini-trampoline. His face was awash in a bright smile that made Martin flush in pleasure.


"I really want to prove to you that I'm a good Dom, won't you let me?" Arthur asked.

"Yes," Martin nodded, "my safe word is Vatican Cameo's," he smirked, amused.

"You got that from Sherlock! I saw that episode!" and from there the conversation fell into the fun two fans of the same show had when talking about their fandom.
