looking for: cabin pressure

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.)

This needed to be done. Podcasts: first impression vs what they actually are like

  • Looks like they could kill you, actually a cinnamon roll: Welcome to Night Vale, Marscorp, Wooden Overcoats
  • Looks like a cinnamon roll, actually a cinnamon roll: Eos 10, The Orbiting Human Circus, Cabin Pressure, Inkwyrm

Cabin Pressure, Series 1 Episode 6: Fitton

Of course, if we’d been drinking vodka, you wouldn’t be able to smell it!

My main agenda with drawing this was to make Martin’s hat look better on Arthur than Martin. (And to catch up.)

AI Unit designated D.G.L.S. is a machine that comes from the SKY line of technology. They were made to assist the scientists populating Fitton Laboratories, but they’re an older model, now mostly replaced by the newer models from the Birling line, named for the Mr. Birling who funded their production. The only two SKY units left are D.G.L.S. and H.E.R.C, nicknamed the ‘God’ units.
D.G.L.S. is a slightly failing, beat-up model, due to his previous three handlers’ treatment. His last one, Helena, was especially negligent and preferred to focus on one of the Birling units. As a result, D.G.L.S. is more run-down and less well-regarded, despite having more advanced cognitive capabilities than most of the newer systems.

The first (chronologically speaking) installment of Cyber Pressure, a Cabin Pressure Marlas AU, which originated from this piece of art I did. More to come soon.

I must say, I’ve been enjoying everyone’s contributions to the Cabin Pressure Advent project this month. Unfortunately I haven’t had much time to participate myself, but here’s a little bit of MJN silliness I found at the back of GERTI’s drinks cabinet, under a half-finished box of Chateau Gatwick and some very suspicious-looking cashew nuts…

John finnemore is a beautiful human being who visited me in hospital a few months back. Because we weren’t sure that id make it to Christmas he let me hear Zürich early. It is without doubt the most clever and satisfying finale to a show I’ve ever heard. All too often shows leave their audiences feeling cheated but fans of cabin pressure are properly looked after as we come to an end. Please return your trays to an upright position and keep your seatbelt fastened until the fandom reaches a complete stop.

Cabin Pressure April Fool’s day headcanons
  • Douglas’ birthday is the 1st of April
  • it takes three years for Martin to believe him
  • Arthur invariably falls for all the fake news stories
  • Douglas’ scheming services are in high demand and he arranges pranks for Carolyn and Herc, on each other
  • Martin attempts to fool Douglas into believing that he’s willing to demote himself to FO so Douglas can be Captain but frankly, that’s a bridge too far and Douglas sees straight through it
  • Martin calls round at Douglas’s house in the evening and waits nervously on the doorstep with some expensive flowers behind his back
  • When Douglas answers the door he shyly gives him the flowers and Douglas glances at his watch, confused
  • “You’re not meant to play any tricks after midday, Martin.”
  • “I know, it’s- it’s not a trick.” A pause. “Happy birthday.”
  • Oh. “Thank you.” and Douglas leans down to press a gentle kiss to Martin’s lips because he’s been wanting to do that for months and it’s his birthday and he’s found a scrap of courage and now he needs to say something because Martin looks shocked
  • “That wasn’t a trick either,” and Martin smiles

Unfortunately, this time I have to actually thank Emily for helping me with this video. She filmed all the in flight stuff and complained about it the whole time. I don’t know why she was so worried; I’m only two flights and a checkride away from my private license.

If I get type rated, maybe Carolyn will let me take GERTI for a spin.
