Daily Drabble #386 (for 20/04)

VII: characters are secretly dating

“That wasn’t very subtle, Douglas,” Carolyn observed, a lightly scolding tone in her voice.

He blinked at her. “I don’t know what you mean.”

She huffed. “Your cabin address. Card tricks, ghost stories or sex? Please. Martin’s sitting there with you, so he knows that’s not directed at him, and even he could work out that it’s me and not Arthur…”

“Just one of my jokes,” Douglas assured her. “It’s not exactly a new game. ‘Things you’d never say to a cabinful of passengers’.”

“I’m just saying,” she said warningly, “If Martin starts smelling a rat, it’s entirely on you.”

An airline captain and the Princess of Liechtenstein…

Now that really sounded like a badly written story starter.

But it was, in fact, the truth.

Theresa did end up getting in touch with Martin again. And again…and again…and again, and again, and again.

Okay, she had to admit it now, they were definitely a couple.

And, surprisingly enough, they fit.

Fandot Creativity - drones/kitchen
  • Arthur: “I can’t reach it. Why did mum put it up there?”
  • Teddy: “What do you need?”
  • A: “The tabasco. I need it for my new surprising rice recipe but mum has moved it up there for some reason. I’ll go get a chair.”
  • T: “Oh you don’t need to. Joe and I got these great drones from our last job. So we can give them a better ad!”
  • A: “Oh wow! Brilliant! So you never need to climb on a stair again?”
  • T: “Not for any of the light things. I tried lifting my TV but it didn’t move it.”
  • A: “thats too bad. But tabasco isn’t heavy”
  • T: “Right. Good thing I brought the drone!”
Daily Drabble #387 (for 19/04)

VI: characters are drift compatible (yes, Pacific Rim reference)

“What are they doing now?” asked Arthur curiously, from under his ‘film-watching’ blanket.

“They’re linking their minds together, I think,” said Martin. “So they can pilot that machine thing.”

“Is that a real thing, or is it made up?”

“Made up.”

“Oh.” Arthur paused. “That’s a shame. If it was real, we could link our minds together, and I wouldn’t have to ask you to pass the bowl.”

Martin chuckled, passing the popcorn over. “And I wouldn’t have to ask you if I’m allowed to share your blanket.”

Arthur looked dumbfounded. “Why would you think you’d have to ask?”

FCN round 6

Ship(s): Team Bobsled, and the Douglas-Theresa friendship I’ve been harping on about for the past eon.
Part 5/5 | previous part

DISCLAIMER: I don’t know much about the workings of commercial airlines. Also, I do not know if there are any small hills around Fitton. Sorry if I screw things up! 


As it turned out, everything did have a silver lining.

Monologue assignment from 1st year of TAW with a grumpy Wirt (Over the Garden Wall) I just now tied down and colored. AND the monologue is Martin from my favourite BBC radio sitcom Cabin Pressure <3 

We had lovely Sarah Airriess - aka @tealin - as our teacher this time, and being a fangirl herself she had selected this as one of the clips we could choose… So of course I had to take it. 

(Also, I have rarely fangirled more than when she did an animation demo of Arthur from the show… *sigh*. It was amazing.)

  • Bast: What's in the thrice-locked chest?
  • Kvothe: Guess. Twenty questions.
  • Bast: Yes brilliant! Twenty questions! Alright. Um, is it a book.
  • Kvothe: No. Nineteen.
  • Bast: Is it a scroll.
  • Kvothe: No. Eighteen. You might want to start with more general questions.
  • Bast: Right. Is it bigger than a sheep.
  • Kvothe: Look at the size of the chest...
  • Bast: Oh yeah! Is it bigger than the chest?
  • Kvothe: Is it bigger than the chest it's in??
