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.

I'm sure you wanted something much more deep and serious, but this is what popped into my head.


Martin: Oh, God. I think we're dead. We're stood on a cloud, in a garden, and there's a gate... Oh God, oh God.

Douglas: Oh, she's done up the place since I last visited. 

Martin: I remember turbulence, lightening, then... Nothing. Suddenly being here.

Douglas: Oh, I wouldn't worry.

Martin: Don't worry?! I'm DEAD!

Douglas: Can't get any worse then, can it? So no need to worry.

God: Douglas! 

Martin: Ahh! Where did she come from?

Douglas: She didn't come from anywhere, Martin. Omnipresent.

Martin: What? Excuse me, Madam, but who are you, and am I dead?

Douglas: Let me introduce you both. God, this is Martin, my captain. Martin, this is my ex-wife, God.

Martin: God's a woman? Sorry, sorry - I didn't mean it like that. I'm a feminist, I swear. I have a t-shirt that says I am - please don't send me to Hell... Please.

God: I wouldn't send you to Hell, dear; that devil's a right cow. But I'm afraid you are a bit dead, technically.

Martin: Oh, God.

God: Yes?

Martin: But why? Why? I mean, why?

God: It's Douglas' fault. He never visits. 

Douglas: Darling...

God: Don't darling me! Divorce or no divorce, we split amicably, so you should visit. Your daughter misses you.

Martin: God is your ex-wife? What? Daughter? 

Douglas: Oh, Darling, she's all grown and doesn't need visits from her dad all the time and we talk regularly. If she wanted to visit me herself she could.

God: She certainly cannot. Not what happened to her brother!

Douglas: Oh, that was over two thousand years ago. And he didn't exactly keep a low profile, letting everyone know just how well connected he was, daft sod. Though, I still think two thousand years is an excessive time to ground the lad, even if he did accidentally end up creating his own religion.

God: We've talked about this, Dougla-

Martin: Am I to understand that God has killed me so that she can bicker with you, Douglas?!

God: I'm not bickering! I just called him up... For a chat.

Douglas: Bored were you?

God: Yeah, it's a bit quiet. You?

Douglas: Oh, not too bad. Bought a flat, thinking of replacing the Lexus. But you knew all that... Omnipresent and all.

God: Polite to ask, though. 

Martin: Omnipresent. You really watch over us? You know everything we do, even when we're alone?

God: Yes, Martin. And I know what you get up to on boring nights in alone. Naughty boy.


God: No Martin. I don't. I'm an all powerful deity, I have better things to do than watch three and a half billion men wank.

Douglas: She lies. I once caught her watching Paul Newman with his hands down his pants.

God: It was the 60s, Douglas! And keep your voice down - he's here now... He makes the most heavenly salad dressings. Anyway, want to come in and sit down? I can have someone fetch tea and those nice brittle honey biscuits from the Mesopotamian era.

Martin: No! Sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but Is there any chance of a resurrection?

Douglas: I've told you, Martin. Don't worry. 

Martin: But- but-

Douglas: Anyone else good come up recently?

God: Rik Mayall. He's one of my favorites at the moment. Absolutely hilarious.

Douglas: Oh yes, good one. 

God: Seeing anyone? 

Douglas: You know I'm not...

God: I might have to send my favorite winged archer after you.

Douglas: No match-making! So stop looking at Martin with that smirk. He's not interested.

Martin: What?

God: Yes he is. Omniscient, remember. All-Knowing.

Martin: What, what?

Douglas: All-Meddling more like. Tell you what, what if I pop up for dinner this weekend?

God: Oh, I'll invite Rik! And do bring along Martin once he's recovered from the whole "meeting God" thing.

Douglas: Well, you do make an impression.

God: That's why you married me, Darling. See you Saturday night? 7:30?

Douglas: Why not. Come on, Martin. 

Martin: Douglas, why are you clicking your fingers.... Douglas! We're back in the cock-pit! The storm cloud is behind us! We're alive!

Douglas: Told you not to worry. When I told you I was a Sky God I wasn't kidding. I got the title in the divorce.

Martin: Oh, my... I just met God!

Douglas: And you asked her if she watched you masturbate. Nice one... Most people go for 'What's the meaning of life?', but at least you were original.

Martin: Oh, God.

Douglas: Exactly. Also, what are you doing Saturday night?

Sorry to barge in but I have to say, seeing two of my favorite fanpeople (yourself and Tiwtin) are still checking on the meme now and then has pretty much made my year! *hugs you both*

Op here.

Oh my gosh. I was totally expecting a butt-load of angst, but I love this so much. Of COURSE Douglas would be married to God. I'm upset I didn't think of that myself. And yes, Martin would screw up his first question to God. That dork. This was awesome, thank you. =3
