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.



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 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.


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.

Kingsman crossover.

(Anonymous) 2015-02-17 07:10 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas is a Kingsman. He's Gareth. Herc is also a Kingsman, however, Herc is Gawain. Gawain and Gareth are meant to be brothers in Arthurian legend, and I see Douglas and Herc's relationship as being fairly brotherly.

But now I want fic of Douglas and Herc being Gentlemen and taking care of business upon fair Gerti, i.e. kicking ass and taking names. Meanwhile, Martin, and Carolyn are watching on like 'whatttt?!?!' while Arthur is jumping up and down proclaiming how Brilliant everything is.

Meanwhile. Let's hope Martin remembered to turn the autopilot on...

D/M, desperation kink

(Anonymous) 2015-02-18 03:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas/Martin relationship - one of them desperate and begging the other for sex, with the other pilot wildly turned on by this show of naked neediness - not denying their partner but instead tripping over themselves to respond to the desperation of their other half, lovingly and passionately soothing their need.

Spy AU General Trigger Warning. Paternal!Douglas

(Anonymous) 2015-02-19 02:04 am (UTC)(link)
Martin used to work with MI6. Something happened, and he had to go deep undercover (maybe is MI6's version of Witness Protection?) which is how Martin Crieff was born. Martin would sometimes slip into his spy persona, like he'll keep his head in a crisis (St Petersburg). And he's kind of surprised he can accidentally get people killed (Boston) as apposed to purposely killing them. One of the things he learnt to be okay with when he was a spy was sleeping with people to get the mission done. So.

Martin's tight on cash, he sees his current mission as 'find way to appease landlord so can keep living in student house', Martin doesn't have the money to pay him so he agrees to sleep with the landlord whenever he can't pay rent. Martin doesn't see any problem with this (even though he doesn't particularly like the landlord), because it's all part of getting the mission done. But somehow Douglas finds out about this (maybe one of the students knows and blabs accidentally to Douglas when Douglas visits to take Martin to the airfield for a flight), and Douglas is furious but when he questions Martin about it, Martin is confused as to why Douglas thinks it is an issue, and admits to having done something similar plenty of times before, like 'Look, Douglas, as long as I complete the mission, does it really matter how I get it done?' Cue H/C as Douglas attempts to convince Martin that he shouldn't have to whore himself out to keep a roof over his head, and Martin revealing that nothing is more important than completing the mission, which in turn results in Martin telling Douglas about his previous life of being a spy.

TL;DR: Martin was a spy, now he's deep under cover. He whores himself out to his landlord whenever he can't pay rent and is okay with doing this because as a spy, he was required to do whatever necessary to complete the mission. And he sees keeping a roof over his head as his current mission. Cue H/C from Douglas when he finds out.

"Fuck your friends. Save a life."

(Anonymous) 2015-02-19 11:30 am (UTC)(link)
I have JUST gotten back from seeing Eddie Izzard live in my home town, and one of his acts had the line 'Fuck your friends. Save a life.' and I couldn't help but imagine Douglas saying this to Martin in order to get him into bed. The idea behind the act was that way back when humans used to offer virgin sacrifices to the gods, why did the sacrifices not just go and fix the problem? Eddie stated that if it happened now there'd be projects called 'Fuck your friends. Save a life' and all the guys would be using it as chat up lines. So that's what I want.

TL;DR Fitton, for some reason, has decided to sacrifice virgins to some god or another and it comes out that Martin is a virgin. So, Douglas takes it upon himself to save Martin's life...

wandering off

(Anonymous) 2015-02-20 11:25 am (UTC)(link)
While abroad, one of the crew of MJN is either drugged, taken ill, or recieves a head injury unbeknownst to the rest of the crew and wanders away before the flight home. For political or other reasons, they can't stay in the country with the aeroplane until the crew-person turns up. They do everything they possibly can before they have to leave, and intend to return as soon as they can.

The missing crewmember regains their awareness of themself three months later and finds themself somewhere they never could have expected.

Soulmates AU

(Anonymous) 2015-02-21 01:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Totally stealing from

In a world where once a year for ten minutes, you experience the life of your soul mate, only what they see, nothing else, not what they hear or what they feel or what they taste, just what they see. It starts when both soul mates have reached puberty, and continues until you have found your soul mate. This Soul Mate vision thing is done in order to allow Soul Mates to find each other, though it's more complicated than that. When both Soul Mates have died from a previous life, they're born again, and they're usually born similar in age, so that they reach puberty together and have many years to find each other.

However, sometimes things go wrong and one mate dies. This results in the living soul mate seeing grey rain clouds for ten minutes once a year until the mate is reborn again, at this point, the mate past puberty sees rainbow clouds, which signifies their mate is reborn but not yet at puberty. And this will continue until the mate reaches puberty. It is possible for the mate to die again, resulting in the grey rain clouds followed by the rainbow clouds. However, if the soul mates meet, and one of them dies afterwards, the visions don't start again and the living soul mate is doomed to live on with the knowledge their mate is gone.

With complications like that, it's accepted that people can and will love other people, even be willing to marry and have children with someone who is not their soul mate on the understanding that if the soul mate comes along, both parties are free to divorce in order to be with their soul mate. When they see their soul mate in the flesh for the first time, it's like their soul mate is encased in golden light, and they know they've found their one. SSOOOOO, after all of that!! What I want is Douglas/Martin, and how they went about trying to find each other, before giving up and deciding to just get on with their lives, and ended up meeting at MJN. (It's up to filler whether it is acceptable to be gay in this world or not. Filler can also decide how angsty they want the fill to be. I will accept literally anything.)

Maybe Douglas marriage to Helena falls apart because the Tai Chi instructor is her soul mate? But Douglas had wanted to make it work because 'Martin, I'm old enough to be your father!!'
Maybe Martin always wanted to be an aeroplane/pilot because Douglas was a pilot and it was a sign?
I dunno. Just give me something, pllleeeassseee.

Inspired by the fact Roger Allam looks great in a hat and long grey coat.

Douglas is a gangster, one of the best just because he can slip out of almost any sticky situation by simply being clever. Martin is the figuratively bird in a golden cage boyfriend of a rival gangster. Then... thing happen, you decide. :)

Martin tied up, forced to watch Douglas being raped.

I've seen prompts with it the other way around, but I think it needs to be done this way. Douglas in a situation he can't charm his way out of, and he's panicking and Martin has to be the strong one for once, all 'look at me, Douglas, look at me. It'll be alright. I promise, I promise' as they're both crying and when it's over, Martin's left to pick up the pieces.(You're welcome to use Deus Ex Mycroft to deal with the rapist(s) if you'd like. My only request on that be that Martin be the littlest Holmes brother.)

I need to go take a cold shower...

With Douglas waking up in an old warehouse (he can't remember how he got there) and the first thing he hears is two people talking to each other, well, one of them yelling:

“For God’s sake, Mycroft, you need to stop kidnapping people, especially your boyfriend!!”

“But Gregory, how else am I to learn of their intentions?”

“You ask them, love, like a normal person!”

Do with what will.

And I'm happy to tell you that I feel lucky!
Enjoy it. I didn’t want it anyway. "Isn’t that lucky?"
Oh, bad luck, Captain.
Oh, bad luck, you've got lust down twice.
Bad luck, Skip. Not your day.
Your luck is changing, Skip.

I’m quite happy to rely on your natural bad luck and incompetence.
Luck. "You can’t rely on luck!"
You can’t rely on luck.
God moves in mysterious ways in order to do lovely things for Douglas Richardson.


Douglas is the son of Tyche, the goddess of Luck and Fortune. Martin is the son of Nemesis, the goddess of Balance and Revenge. Tyche grants good luck to people (her children often do random/weird/reckless things because Tyche is more inclined to pay attention to that than someone praying for good luck), Nemesis grants bad luck to people, including her own children (for instance, she made a deal of sorts with one of her children, and took his eye as payment). Martin's bad luck stems from the fact that Nemesis sees it as balance for Martin becoming a pilot, which is his dream job. And he gets a whole heap of bad luck because most people in the world never achieve their dreams, but he has, therefore he needs a lot of bad luck to balance things out. Douglas, on the other hand, happens to be one of his mother's favourite children, hence why he always has such good luck, and the moments where his luck runs thin is because Nemesis has finally decided to step in.

For shits and giggles, Arthur is actually Apollo's son, not Gordon's. Apollo is the god of the sun, music, poetry, light, and knowledge.

Please have them all figuring this out. And Carolyn being all 'goodness, I didn't realize I was running a plane of the gods!' Bonus if Herc is actually the son of Heracles (Hercules Greek form). (Carolyn just wants all the godliness).

TL;DR: Douglas is the son of Tyche, the goddess of Luck and Fortune. Martin is the son of Nemesis, the goddess of Balance and Revenge. Arthur is the son of Apollo, the god of the sun, music, poetry, light, and knowledge.

It was a cold and it was a broken Hallelujah.

(Anonymous) 2015-02-24 08:15 am (UTC)(link)
I've seen fics where people use Hallelujah as a really touching love song, but considering the song talks about the betrayal of Samson by Delilah, and the unfaithfulness of David and Bathsheba, it's never really seemed like a love song to me, at least not one that would make me go all sappy over my boyfriend/girlfriend. So, I want Douglas/Martin at some dance, (maybe there's a pilots ball or something? anyway), I want them dancing, and Hallelujah comes on and Martin just bolts from the room fighting back tears. Because it used to be HIS song with a girl/boy he loved and the person betrayed him in the worst way (whatever you pick) and this song reminds him of it every time. Cue explanations and comfort.

TL;DR: Hallelujah starts playing while Douglas and Martin are dancing at a ball, and Martin runs out nearly in tears, because he used to be in a relationship with someone and it was their song, but they betrayed him and it's all he thinks about when he hears the song now.

So I've just been listening to Repo! The Genetic Opera and I got thinking. There are lots of prompts where Herc is a Repo man (for the obvious reasons), but what about Martin? Maybe Martin's in the game as well? Maybe he's secretly dark!Martin who loves his little side job?

So, prompt. Dark!Martin enjoying his job as a repo man, make it as sick as you like (apart from sexual), I can take it.

Bonus: Herc is also a repo man.

Take it and run, dear fillers.

Arthur likes helping, and loves giving people what they need, including being a really sweet, service/praise/comfort-oriented Dom BUT he's so keen to give to others that he's reluctant to ask for himself - he turns down getting even a handjob from his subs, just to be sure he's not making them do anything they don't want to (maybe he doesn't think he's that attractive?)

But his new sub is determined they're BOTH going to get what they need...

secret beard hide and seek (potential for pre-slash D/M)

(Anonymous) 2015-02-27 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
During his first year with Swissair, Martin grows an enormous (yet tidy and professional) ginger beard. He doesn't tell any of his friends at MJN about it, particularly Douglas, because he assumes there would be teasing. He doesn't mention it, and avoids doing anything where any of them might find out (i.e. posting photos of himself on facebook etc).

One day his Swissair flight lands at the same airport as an MJN flight, and they both have a few hours to spend in the airport and both are aware the other(s) are there too. Emails are exchanged in advance and meeting up is mentioned but not arranged because there's no telling what last minute schedule changes might happen. Martin is looking forward to it until he realizes they'll see his new beard.

Martin spends most of the few hours deliberately hiding in the airport from the crew of MJN/OJS, while they're all trying to find him, and Martin's new Captain is highly amused. Of course when his old crew find Martin, no one teases Martin about his beard much at all. Most unusually, Douglas says nothing at all, even though he seems... fixated by Martin's face fuzz.

TLDR: Martin grows a beard and hides from his old crew to avoid teasing, but Douglas, even though strangely fixated by Martin's new beard when they meet up, has no teasing remarks at all

Scott Pilgrim crossover/au D/M

(Anonymous) 2015-03-01 12:44 am (UTC)(link)
For whatever reason, Theresa and Martin don't work out. Martin goes back to Fitton and life returns to normal, until he notices that Douglas is turning on the Richardson charm with him, and he just 'Douglas, no, I like you, but we can't' but Douglas pursues him anyway, and finds out why Martin is always so god awful when it comes to talking to people he likes, and also why Martin's so against the idea on their third Not!Date when boyfriend number one challenges Douglas to a duel. Douglas wins the duel, and continues to pursue Martin, resulting in more past loves coming out of the works, boys and girls. And then Theresa makes her appearance.

Can be actual proper combat or challenges like who can win a drag race (Martin dates bad boys/girls, too, c'mon) or who can solve a Rubiks cube faster, or something like that. Challenges designed to test Douglas' worthiness for Martin.

TL;DR: Douglas starts turning on the Richardson charm for Martin, who attempts to warn Douglas off. But Douglas pursues him anyway, and Martin's past loves start coming out of the works.

Real life inspired prompt. Wittwe Arthur at the grocery store.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-01 10:26 am (UTC)(link)
Okay. So I was at the supermarket today doing the grocery shopping, and (I don't know how supermarkets in Britain are set up, but in NZ fruit is ALWAYS right at the start so it's the first thing you see when you walk in) this mother and daughter walk in. The little girl is about three or four years old and she's the most adorable thing I've ever seen. I'm watching her as I peruse the apples, and she just stops the moment her eyes land on all the fruit and her eyes just light up like she's in a goddamn candy store. And I turn back to the apples and then a few seconds later I hear 'No. Ana. Ana stop. Ana, you put that down right now. Ana. Don't you dare!' and I spin around in time to see the little girl take a massive bite out of an apple she's holding. And she looks like she's in heaven. And I just started laughing so hard, and the mother just sighed and looked down at the ground and mumbled 'Why does this happen every time?'. And I couldn't help but imagine young Arthur, and Carolyn taking him out with her when she does the groceries. And Arthur getting so excited by all the fruit. Like, so much of the fruit Carolyn ended up buying would have little teeth marks that, if examined, would fit exactly with Arthur's teeth. fiokerlfdgme

TL;DR: Carolyn takes young Arthur with her to do grocery shopping, and ends up having to buy loads of random fruit because Arthur keeps taking bites out of them.
