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.

One day Douglas wakes up in an au where he was never fired from air England. Everything is great he's still with his first wife, he gets to see his daughter everyday and he's still a captain. But when he tries to find his friends from mjn, he realises not everyone is as happy as he is

Merlin crossover: Herc is somehow Uther.

Everything's going fine between Carolyn and Herc, right up until she finds out he's actually royalty. Royalty that died hundreds of years ago and is presumed to be legend only by most.

Then things get awkward.

(bonus: Particularly when she also finds out who Arthur and Mer- I mean Martin are reincarnations of)

Martin Crieff: the most stubbornly tenacious Bottom in the world

(Anonymous) 2016-04-03 12:18 am (UTC)(link)
As much as I love me some Trembling Waifish Sub Martin, he is generally, while anxious, a tenacious little bugger who will bravely try and try and fail and fail until he reaches his goal.

So I would like to see Martin Crieff: Tenacious Bottom. Martin Crieff, desperately trying to be like the twinks in the porn videos even though he's well into his 30s & nowhere near as experienced and certainly can't bend like that. Martin Crieff, doggedly trying and trying to be the absolute perfect sexpot for a bemused and amused partner (take your pick, I like Douglas or Top!Theresa)

Is that a singular toddler's case of the twos, or multiple toddlers' case of the twos? Either way, seconded.

Arthur and the new Jungle Book

The Jungle Book is finally here. How does Arthur react to it? Does he like it? Does he drag everyone + Herc to see it?

Martin and Douglas are having a baby. One day they're stuck somewhere (idk baby they're snowed in or something) when Martin goes into labour. Douglas, with the help of Arthur and Carolyn have to deliver the baby.

(Anonymous) 2016-04-26 07:32 am (UTC)(link)
Aw, second.

(Anonymous) 2016-05-15 02:33 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin and Douglas are dating, they're stupidly happy and comfortable together, things are moving quickly and it's not long before they move in together. Shortly after they do someone turns up with a baby claiming one of them is the father (I don't mind which one) and tells them the baby is their responsibility now and leaves. How do they cope, will the other accept it?

(Anonymous) 2016-05-15 04:27 pm (UTC)(link)

I've been watching far too many medical dramas lately, so now I need Douglas dramatically getting Martin to A&E covered in blood carrying a barley breathing Martin.

If someone did want to write this they could make whatever changes they wanted.

Douglas has a stroke, which means he'd have to relearn to fly and play the piano, the two things that give his life any meaning.

Oh Douglas! Naturally, I second this passionately.

D/M traumatic tango

(Anonymous) 2016-06-04 06:30 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas sets his mind to teaching Martin how to dance. Martin, who has always flatly refused to dance, shocks Douglas by revealing he can tango at flawless near-competition levels, but doesn't due to a past related emotional trauma. After he shows what he can do, he bursts into tears and leaves Douglas on the dance floor. Douglas goes to him and eventually gets the full story, easing him through it and being understanding. Martin does agree to tango with Douglas, but only in private, as they work through his past trauma.

My soul for a fill to this!!!
Seconded with all my heart.

(Anonymous) 2016-06-15 04:49 pm (UTC)(link)
It's Martin's birthday! He's not normally bothered about his birthday, he's normally humping boxes around. But this is the first one since he and Douglas have been together. But when he gets up Douglas says nothing, doesn't acknowledge it at all. Martin is heart broken he can't believe Douglas has forgotten. But Douglas hasn't really forgotten, in fact he's got a pretty big surprise planned.

Awww, seconded!!

Douglas is an ex super hero, he retired after he finally defeated his arch enemy. Once he did he got a job with mjn (no one knows about his alter ego). He's happy, he's got his daughter, a job and Martin. But his enemy is back, and he wants revenge! So "insert enemy name here" takes Martin

The reason Douglas has had so many partners is actually that he's really bad at sex and they don't won't to stick around. But when he and Martin get together, he finds that Martin doesn't really mind that sky God doesn't include Sex God

First Dates

[personal profile] smasualfangirl221b 2016-09-28 11:28 pm (UTC)(link)
For some reason, I've had this prompt bugging me and I am too busy to write it!

It's based on the channel 4 programme First Dates (two people are assigned to each other and go to a restaurant for their first date etc.).

Martin and Douglas both sign up for it and end up somehow getting assigned to each other. Before they go, Martin confronts Douglas arguing that it's a bad idea (since he likes Douglas and wanted to go on the show to try and find someone new since Douglas would never go for him - but now he thinks this could reveal too much). Douglas, on the other hand, claims it would be nothing but harmless fun and says that they can't really back out now - they should just go on and it would give Martin good practice for the next time (which Douglas uses as an excuse since he likes Martin too, and actually went on the website to extinguish such feelings by meeting somebody new, but now sees it as the perfect opportunity). Martin begrudgingly agrees, and they go together.

They pretend as though they have never met and that it is their first time together as well as the first date. They ask like why they both went on the website etc.

I think you all know where I'm going with this, but I would like them to end up together at the end.

Why is it called Icarus Removals?

(Anonymous) 2016-10-24 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Does anyone still look at the prompts here? If so, I've got one. I'd like to know why exactly Martin called his company Icarus Removals. Is there a story behind it? Or just an ironic choice on his part?

Re: Why is it called Icarus Removals?

(Anonymous) 2016-10-24 06:19 am (UTC)(link)
Ooo, yes. They do mention it in Ottery St. Mary that it's a deliberate choice by Martin, I'd love to see that choice explored too.

Airplane Graveyard

(Anonymous) 2016-11-27 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
In Porco Rosso, this scene made me want to cry, with all the airplanes flying forever-- what would it be like for GERTI and her crew flying through that layer, seeing it?

Are they passing through, or is it a final destination?

Re: Airplane Graveyard

(Anonymous) 2016-11-29 07:12 am (UTC)(link)
I've never heard of Porco Rosso, but this concept sounds like a solid punch in the feels so I'm seconding.

I had a random idea

(Anonymous) 2016-11-29 04:16 pm (UTC)(link)
It's mpreg so feel free to ignore this

Martin is pregnant with Douglas' baby. Douglas is on a last minute flight when Martin goes into labour, so Arthur has to be Martins birthing partner!

Re: I had a random idea

Oh god. Seconded.

Codename: Verity

(Anonymous) 2016-12-04 04:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Based on the interview where JF says Douglas's daughter's name is Verity and this ( moodboard.

Douglas's daughter is a spy. It's why he very rarely sees her or talks to her. And then one day he gets a coded message, and he's positive his little girl is in trouble.

MJN to the rescue!

The First OJS Christmas

(Anonymous) 2016-12-12 12:54 am (UTC)(link)
It's the first Christmas after Zurich, and the gold find has made everyone at MJN super-rich. They have everything they could want, and have already made monetary donations to several worthy charities. So they decide to do something special for the less fortunate over the holidays, if only they could decide on what. Everyone has their own ideas, particularly Arthur.

Martin comes back to Fitton for this as well, (Optional whether Theresa comes too and/or they are still happy together, or Martin comes back alone and all this Christmas generosity shenanigans results in Douglas and Martin getting together.)

The naming of Icarus Removals

(Anonymous) 2017-02-23 04:44 am (UTC)(link)
Martin knows who Icarus is, but he didn't name his business directly after him. He named his business after the Ray Bradbury short story "Icarus Montgolfier Wright", where the first person about to go to Mars in a rocket is dreaming of being other pioneers of flight and it becomes a sort of spiritual lineage to him.
