ummm… Cabin Pressure makeout scene whuuut?! I was doing a warm-up sketch like I usually do before art-ing, and this just came out and I had to just finish it in all it’s glory and lensflare and cheesy lighting and lazy drawing! Anywhooo this is Martin and the Princess! Maybe they went and Martin was just gonna show her how and she just climbed on his lap and yeah… someone needs to write this for me NOWZ! lol just kidding… no really write it!?
I’m going to get my thank you’s out of the way first – none of this would have been possible without David Tyler’s extreme generosity and faith in the project. I had sent a rather cheeky email to Pozzitive Productions back in November, informing them about the project and asking if there was a way to give them the final results (I’ll note that this was NOWHERE near the deadline and we were still in the early stages). Two months later and after thinking that the email had fallen into the bin, I got an email back from David – with a ticket.
I also need to thank my friend M (nickname in case she didn’t want her name posted up) who was my amazing videographer and photographer during the gift distribution bit. How she wasn’t shaking behind the camera is beyond me – I would have been a nervous wreck! So thanks dear for being an awesome friend and helping me out with this.
And of course – I have to thank YOU all because you submitted videos and photos and money to the project and the fundraiser. Over the past few months I have been absolutely blown away by everyone’s loveliness and generosity. These past few hours have also been a bit surreal, with all the wonderful asks, tweets, and messages. It’s just been incredible, and I am glad to be part of such a supportive fandot.
Now. Onto the good stuff and what you all have been waiting for. :)
Note: there are casting spoilers of non-permanent characters in what is about to be explained. If you do not want to hear who was there at the recording, please do not read this account.
At the same time, if you are reading this in search of plot spoilers, you’re not going to get them here.
(And if you’re here to read about spoilers – as in air flaps on the wings that produce drag and not a lot of lift – then I’m going to take this moment to apologize for my lack of knowledge on aviation technology, so you’re fresh out of luck here…)
P.S. I write novel length entries about events that mean a lot to me, so sit back with a cup tea and get comfortable – this will be basically an essay.
P.P.S. Sorry my photos of the cast pre-gift giving are a bit crap. I tried to hide my hideous red focus light that may have actually been needed to make the photos a bit better…
DOUGLAS: Oh, I see! Duxford went well, did it? CAROLYN: What’s Duxford? DOUGLAS: Duxford Air Museum is where Martin recently escorted a charming young woman from Liechtenstein. And when I say, “from,” I mean the princess of.
I’m physically unable to stop myself from drawing Martin and Theresa somebody send help
“Are you sure nobody’s around? I’ve got this awful feeling someone’s watching us.”
“That’s just the security cameras, we’re fine.”
“The- what?! But we- oh, god. Douglas is going to put it on Youtube.”
“Martin, relax. The security cameras are in the main hall, making sure Maxie and Arthur don’t eat the wax apples again.”
After Theresa and Martin are married, they decide almost immediately that they want to have children. And it doesn’t take long for their fellow party guests to start taking bets on when the two of them will sneak away from the festivities to have their own kind of fun.
(Yes, I did spend nearly an hour researching the official sash colours and medals that the royal family of Liechtenstein wear to formal events)
“Martin, do you take Theresa for your lawful wedded wife, to live in the holy estate of matrimony? Will you love, honour, comfort, and cherish her from this day forward, forsaking all others, keeping only unto her for as long as you both shall live?”
