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.

Gen or Any/Any, Martin loses his license

[personal profile] annievh 2015-01-28 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
... because of something Douglas did.

I have a preference for Theresa/Martin, but if you want a very angsty D/M, that works for me.

AU - D/M arranged marriage, sort of.

(Anonymous) 2015-01-28 09:09 am (UTC)(link)
Shortly after Cremona, Carolyn gets ill and develops a high fever, during which she insists that she cannot have pilots who are not married to each other. It's a source of great and genuine distress in her fevered state.

Since everyone is rather worried that Carolyn's illness could become fatal if she keeps on like this and Arthur is beside himself with worry, Martin and Douglas decide there is no harm in having Arthur preside over their hospital bedside wedding, just to calm Carolyn and let her have some peace.

Carolyn eventually recovers and all goes back to normal apart from the joking ("Do you want me to drive, darling?"). Except... Arthur had one of those internet license to perform an actual civil union. The paperwork was done, signed by medical staff 'witnesses' and submitted to the registry office, and Martin and Douglas are in fact officially civil partners under the law.

When Helena later files for divorce from Douglas, everything suddenly gets very complicated.

Prefer happy ending with Douglas and Martin choosing to remain partners, either platonically or romantically.

TLDR: To soothe an ill Carolyn, Douglas and Martin have Arthur fake-marry them, except it turns out to not be quite as fake as they thought.

Douglas's damaged wing

(Anonymous) 2015-01-29 03:00 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas does something stupid and injures his wrist or strains his shoulder or something, a la Martin in Ottery, and since it happened in a way that will sound ridiculous when he tells the story, he does one of two things: 1. Makes up a lie
2. Hides it

Something happens that forces him to take some painkillers for it. Only his doctor never told him that complete and utter honesty would be a side effect...

Captain Richardson (tw: unhealthy relationship)

(Anonymous) 2015-01-30 09:16 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas wants so badly to be captain because he thinks it's the only way he's worth being loved: if he's successful. Unfortunately, his newest romantic relationship only confirms that belief, and his self-esteem (which was never high to begin with) plummets. Luckily, someone actually does love him, warts and all.

"Well, it's a funny story..."

(Anonymous) 2015-01-30 09:52 pm (UTC)(link)
D/M - Martin gets a bit too... enthusiastic during sex, and accidentally hurts Douglas enough that they need to take him to the hospital.
Rather that getting off, Martin is left sitting next to his partner's hospital bed, red as a tomato as they explain to the doctors how Douglas hurt his... ahem.

Carolyn/Herc, Valentine's Day

Exactly what it says on the tin. Rest of crew optional but always appreciated.

Martin comforting Douglas

(Anonymous) 2015-02-03 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
Either platonically or in a d/m relationship- Douglas is really, really sad or worried about something. He pushes everyone else away but Martin, to the captain's touched surprise, is the one person he will allow to comfort him. Basically d/m or d & m hurty comforty goodness please. Recs also gratefully received... Thanks :)

Douglas and Martin play monopoly

(Anonymous) 2015-02-04 01:03 am (UTC)(link)
I'm just really curious to see which pilot would win a game of Monopoly. Martin's got loads of budgeting experience and probably a Monopoly manual, but he's also got rotten luck... Douglas would of course rely entirely on luck and zero strategy.

Bonus points if it's D/M and almost ends their relationship through sheer frustration.

(Anonymous) 2015-02-04 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Douglas likes fixing things for people he cares about, even if it might cost him something. But he doesn't like them finding out he's had to sacrifice to do it. So when one of his fixing plots ends up with him in real danger, or hurt, he pretends everything's fine. Until it's not.

D/M, double penetration

(Anonymous) 2015-02-04 06:28 pm (UTC)(link)
Are there any double penetration fics out there? If not, can there be?! Pref two men penetrating Martin, but I'm open to Douglas plus toy as well. Consensual please :)

developing D/M - Douglas wants to be dominated

(Anonymous) 2015-02-05 10:38 am (UTC)(link)
All his sexually active life, what Douglas has yearned for is for someone to just claim him. Not a full on BDSM relationship, but just to be completely manhandled once in a while, pushed up against walls and groped, ordered around sexually, held down and fucked hard for hours, kept on the edge until it suited his partner to let him come. Unfortunately for Douglas, he's always been tall and strong and his partners that have been interested in anything like that have wanted him to be in control of them. Douglas has always been a considerate lover and gone with what his lovers desired, saving his own fantasies to be just that, fantasy.

Then one day, when the playful flirting with his short, slight, ginger captain starts getting serious, rather than the usual dynamic he finds that the Supreme Commander extends his domain beyond the cockpit of the aeroplane, whether he's aware he does or not.

TLDR: Douglas wants to be dominated. When their relationship becomes sexual it turns out Martin is surprisingly dominant.

D/T/M - royal polyamory rules

(Anonymous) 2015-02-05 11:26 am (UTC)(link)
Due to some ancient laws of royal succession forgotten about (until the princess married two men at once to form a polyamorous relationship), when a person of royal blood has more than one consort, any sexual act where impregnation is possible must involve all partners equally contributing to the act of reproduction.

Martin and his habit of abiding by all the rules interprets this (with a bit of blushing) as double-penetration. Douglas and Theresa are both very interested in this idea, and rules are sometimes made to be followed. For the good of the sovereignty of course.

(Anonymous) 2015-02-05 02:16 pm (UTC)(link)
I now need an au where Carolyn I'd Polish and Arthur and Martin are half brothers

Character death?

(Anonymous) 2015-02-08 03:22 pm (UTC)(link)
MJN meet God. What do they say to Him? (Or, what do they say when they get to the pearly gates? Your choice.)

Screw Douglas Richardson

(Anonymous) 2015-02-09 09:12 pm (UTC)(link)
However you want to take that.

Martin says something to make Douglas blush

(Anonymous) 2015-02-09 09:29 pm (UTC)(link)
that's it that's the prompt.
Bonus points if Martin teases him about it.

(Anonymous) 2015-02-10 06:19 pm (UTC)(link)
Martin loves being the captain, there's no debate on that. So now that he's a first officer, how is he handling the transition? Is he heartbroken? Is he okay with it?


(Anonymous) 2015-02-12 12:16 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas does something very innocent to Martin- touches the back of his neck, breathes on his ear while whispering something, accidentally tickled him- and Martin unintentionally MOANS.

Douglas did not do this on purpose and had no idea it would cause such a reaction, but now it's out there. What happens next?

Non/dub con situation

(Anonymous) 2015-02-13 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
Douglas and Martin make a sex tape. Everything is consensual, both parties willingly. But the house gets vandalized and the tape gets stolen. And then uploaded onto the internet.

"And if I died right now, you'd never be the same." Possible triggers.

(Anonymous) 2015-02-14 08:16 am (UTC)(link)
Martin saying this to Douglas. For whatever reason. (Maybe Martin is having an off day and Douglas unwittingly says something that hits too close to home? Maybe Douglas walks in on Martin about to kill himself/harm himself?) Author's choice.

Either way. Give me massive amount of hurt comfort.

yo where my valentine's day stories at folks! any pairing, any situation, valentine's day. make it happen, people. <3

(Anonymous) 2015-02-14 10:59 pm (UTC)(link)
Anything marlas related! There's never enough marlas!

crisis of confidence

(Anonymous) 2015-02-15 10:45 am (UTC)(link)
All his newfound confidence doesn't help when Martin messes up something simple but vital while flying with SwissAir. It's waived off by his Captain with a mild reprimand, but he still feels a crushing sense of worthlessness, like he'll be fired and that he's not capable of doing the job. When he gets back to his flat in Zurich, he sinks lower and lower with no one to talk to outside of work. Calling anyone feels like a confirmation of failure, so he doesn't call anyone and keeps sinking lower, calling in sick for his next scheduled flight, not leaving his flat.

Someone shows up at his door the next morning and helps him find his confidence again.

Any pairing.

long-distance miscommunication (gen or D/M)

(Anonymous) 2015-02-15 02:11 pm (UTC)(link)
After trying to carry on a long-distance friendship/relationship with Douglas for several months, Martin feels that Douglas has moved on and doesn't have time for him anymore, or finds his emails and calls an annoying inconvenience. So, Martin sends a polite, positive, friendly breakup email before crying himself to sleep.

Douglas is shocked by the message. He sets out to prove to Martin that he is still very much invested in his connection with Martin, in a uniquely Douglas way.

"I didn't fall off the wagon. The WHEELS fell off, and I rolled out as it was going down."

(Anonymous) 2015-02-16 07:37 am (UTC)(link)
That is your prompt. Do with as will.
