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.

Martin's Birthday!

[personal profile] smasualfangirl221b 2015-03-24 09:06 pm (UTC)(link)
So, it's my birthday tomorrow - woo! - and I was hoping one of you guys could write a fic where it's Martin's birthday? I just want one where he knows none of the crew will know it's his birthday, but he's still disappointed when this is confirmed when he gets to work. So he is in a pretty upset mood. Then, Arthur comes in to the flight deck to offer them some coffee (they can be going anywhere), and he notices Martin is down so he tells him that he can't be upset on his birthday! Martin's surprised that Arthur remembered, and Douglas is surprised that Martin didn't tell him it was his birthday and then you can make up the rest! Happy ending is always the best :) Thanks! (Btw, preferably no pairings, but if you REALLY want one, then go crazy!)

I have a craving. I have a craving for Martin in a fist fight.

We've seen he has a temper (Helsinki, anyone?) but I'd love to read something wherein Martin is his scrappy self (Possible anger issues?)

Can be any thing from kidfic to canon-time. Any pairings or gen. I just want Martin to fight someone.

(Addendum: If you do teen Martin, oh lovely filler; I love the punk!Martin headcanon. Him fighting dirty is also appealing (If a bit OOC))

Martin finds himself in a world where having sex is a common and normal thing. Getting a blowjob while waiting for your food? Normal. Masturbating while your hair is drying at the salon? Normal. Sex with total strangers, even if your spouse was right there? Normal.

"Martin, what's the matter? You've been blushing since we took off."

"I-I-I-I-I-I... I think I may be dreaming, Douglas. Everyone is... I mean... I don't know what's going on!"

"You seem a bit stress. Do you want me to fly while Arthur sucks you off? It might be the thing to take the edge off."

!!!! Please! :D

Self Harm. Other warnings that go along with that.

(Anonymous) 2015-03-29 01:21 am (UTC)(link)
My experience with Self Harm, and finding out my friends self harm has always been different from what I read in fics. The self-harmer in fics always tries SO DESPERATELY to hide their harm from their friends, and when their friends find out it's the end of the world, and the friends are either really understanding to the point of suffocation, or they're not understanding at all. I've known since midway through my first year of high school that most of my friends self harm, hell, I knew most of the student body self harmed, you couldn't go five steps without bumping into someone who had scars on their wrists or their thighs, or their breasts or stomachs. We never made a big deal out of it, never got into screaming or crying fights, never tried to make each other feel guilty. All of us, even those who didn't self harm, we just accepted that we all had our demons. SO!

Martin is a self harmer, and has been one since High School. Douglas, Carolyn, and Arthur all know of Martin's self harming, because Martin never made all that much effort to hide it. Like, he'd wear long sleeved shirts and things, but he'd never go to the effort of sneaking around or actively trying to keep attention off of his arms, because he learned that the less you tried to hide your arms, the less attention you drew to them, and each of the crew managed to catch glimpses of his scars from time to time. They never confronted him about it. Didn't ask why he did it. All they did was let him know they were there if he needed them. And every new cut they managed to see, they wouldn't try to make him feel guilty for, they'd just examine the cut, tell Martin he could talk to them, and then go about their business. And with time the amount of cuts Martin made started to lessen, and he started to feel better about himself, and the other crew members continued to lend their support. And one day, over the cheese tray and a flight over Russia, Martin told Douglas about the first time he cut, and how afterwards, he just couldn't seem to stop.

Douglas understands because he knows self harm is a lot like being an alcoholic. Once a harmer, always a harmer.
Carolyn understands because she had friends in High School who harmed.
Arthur understands because he had a girlfriend who harmed.

TL;DR: Martin is a self harmer. The MJN Crew has known this for a long time, and they never make a big deal out of it. They just lend their support to Martin until he gets better.

I just need some super Marlas angst. Whether one of them is sick/injured or they've had a huge fight, I don't mind.

Also if there could be a happy ending that would be great, but I don't mind either way way

Fill? Maybe, perhaps, depends on what you're looking for?

[personal profile] smasualfangirl221b 2015-09-03 09:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I've started this fic which is kinda marlas angst, I don't know if it's the way you want it, but since nobody else has given you a fill I thought I might just drop this here. I apologise if it isn't :)


(Anonymous) 2015-03-31 12:01 am (UTC)(link)
Between series 3 & 4 (ie before Theresa exists) Martin somehow gets into a friends with benefits situation with a man at the airfield he has a vague crush on, feeling that if he can't have love, he may as well have just sex. Douglas hears about the arrangement and gradually comes to realise the captain is being horribly taken advantage of - maybe the other man refuses to kiss Martin, or won't let him stay over, or is also sleeping with other people despite implying to Martin that they're exclusive... Whatever filler likes. Up to you how douglas reacts but would love some protective douglas and if the filler so desires eventual D/M wouldn't be the worst thing ever ;)

As an April fools joke Douglas starts flirting obviously with Martin, thinking that he'd make the captain ridiculously uncormfortable. Martin however is thrilled. He's been in love with Douglas for a long time, and thinks this is his chance. When Douglas realises he is t sure what to do.

Upto author whether Douglas breaks Martins heart or realises his feelings or a combination of both

swarming - Protective Douglas whump

(Anonymous) 2015-04-05 10:16 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas, Martin and Arthur are swarmed by a gang of thugs in a foreign city and Martin and Arthur almost hold their own in the onslaught, but Douglas defends them with a ferocity they would never have anticipated and after a bit the gang scatters.

However, during the fight, Douglas was seriously hurt, maybe stabbed, some injury that's getting worse and worse the more he moves, and now it's up to Martin and Arthur to keep him alive and get them all to safety before the gang finds them again.

Any pairings or groupings or gen, all ok.

So, I've started listening to Welcome To Night Vale and am in need of a Cabin Pressure fic inspired/crossed over with it.
I have three ideas:

1. Douglas does a Night Vale themed cabin address and Martin totally fanboys

2. Martin grows tierd of Douglas teasing him for his curls, so gets his hair cut short; Douglas wants to grab the barber responsible and tear him a new one (D/M?)

3. Cecil is Douglas' American brother and Douglas often tunes in to his shows. Douglas used to think it was just for shits and giggles, like his cabin addresses; but after visiting his brother a week ago... Well, let's just say he has yet to recover...

FILL Fifty Shades of Yellow Car

I smile with elation at myself in the mirror. Hooray for my hair! It just won't behave. Silly hair! Poor old Katherine Kavanagh's ill, I hope she's OK soon, because Katherine Kavanagh is brilliant - I mean, she's not right now, she's ill, but anyway. And there's something about an exam which is next week that I was supposed to remember, but that doesn't matter right now because I'm brushing my hair! Brush brush brush! Brush brush brush! I love brushing my hair, don't you? It's like a little scalp massage that tidies you up. Brush Brush Brush! I mustn't sleep with it wet though, because my Gran always said you could catch your death doing that. She didn't catch her death doing that, she got angina. I roll my eyes, and then cross them and puff out my cheeks because I'm still looking in the mirror, remember, and I like doing funny faces at myself. I gaze at the man, which is me, with my face, with my hair which is all brushed now and my eyes which are still crossed. My option is to do nothing really, because I'm already brilliant.

Oh and then a rich man turns up and asks if he can smack me on the bum until he stops feeling sad about his mum and I say no thanks because I'm not sure that is the best way to cheer people up, I'm pretty sure the best way to cheer people up is with Karaoke or Hungry Hungry Hippos and then I have sausages for tea which is terrific.

When the crew has to fly to Las Vegas, Carolyn books them in a cheap hotel off the strip, of course, but it has a cheap all you can eat 24-hour buffet. After Arthur and Martin run wild, Douglas (who remained sensible) finds himself tending to two very overstuffed and miserable young men the rest of the night.

Martin can't sit down after last night's sex, using every excuse not to move too much. Douglas is helpful and apologetic, if perhaps a bit smug. Bonus points if you include the night. ;)

The 'rubbish' job

(Anonymous) 2015-04-13 06:45 am (UTC)(link)
Martin's first 'rubbish' piloting job was a lot worse than he lets on. A lot. One day he encounters one of the crew from the previous job in an airport, barely keeps it together, then later in the hotel has a massive panic attack just from seeing the person across a crowded airport. As his MJN crewmate/s try to help, the truth comes out about what really happened at Martin's first job.

Subsequently he crew of MJN set forth to make things right with some MJN style ass kicking.

Any pairing or none, all fine.

May the odds be ever in your favour. Bio-terrorism.

(Anonymous) 2015-04-14 03:53 am (UTC)(link)
MJN fly to America, for whatever reason, and while they're there, they get caught in a quarantine, as terrorist groups launch a biological attack. The attack is in the form of Pneumonic Plague (Y Pestis) that has been altered to be resistant to Antibiotics. Everyone seems fine, until Martin's blood work comes back and shows that he's the only one who tested positive for the plague, and not too long after that, Martin starts exhibiting symptoms. The doctors do everything they can for him, but without viable treatment, it is expected that Martin will die.
It is revealed that the plague has a 32 hour suicide gene, that stops the plague from replicating after 32 hours. But survival rates are still only 15% Against all odds, Martin survives the plague, but his lungs are severely scarred. He's still allowed to fly, but he's under strict orders to have regular check ups, and his doctors stress that Martin should get a portable oxygen concentrator in case something happens and he needs oxygen urgently. Martin doesn't know how he's going to afford any of this and the MJN crew step up to help him through it.

(Guess who has been watching the NCIS SWAK episode...)

Pairing if have to: Marlas.

tl;dr: While in America, the MJN crew is caught in the middle of a bio-terrorist attack, and Martin is infected with a genetically altered strain of Pneumonic Plague. He survives the infection but is overwhelmed by all the changes he needs to make to his life in order to compensate for the permanent scarring of his lungs. The rest of the MJN crew help him out.

In the amigoverse, there are alphas, betas, and amigos.

Every so often, amigos have a frenzied desire to have extreme fun - like going to the amusement park, jumping out of planes, or dancing wildly in public.

Alphas respond to friendly pheromones by aggressively enabling amigos. If an amigo is at home, an alpha might show up with supplies for a pillow fight. If an amigo is out in the open during a heat, you get a flash dance.

Secret amigo Martin is truly happy to handle his heats himself with toys - aka his flight simulator computer game and stack of flight manuals. But, one time on a trip, his amigo heat hits him and he attracts the most enabling alpha(s) ever at MJN Air.

Fun times ensue.

Note: the point of amigoverse is to be helpful and friendly. Sex is not any more likely to happen than it would outside of an amigo's special time and wouldn't be against anyone's will. Smut is completely optional.

School teacher au

Douglas is a teacher in a secondary school. He's known as the 'cool teacher' cause he's so mellow with the kids and basically lets them do what they want as they're not fucking things up. Carolyn is a fellow teacher with Arthur as a student.

Martin is the quiet kid. He doesn't seem to have many friends (or any friends, as Douglas noticed) and is often bullied. It also seems Martin knows a secret about Gordon, one of the school's biggest supporters, but if he tells, something bad may happen to him.
