Summer Tumblr Themes

John Finnemore himself declared the 25th of June to be Summer Christmas, something which I am wholeheartedly embracing.

But what is Summer Christmas? One can only assume it's a day of joy worthy of Arthur Shappey, so let's make it one :D

Tag your posts, whatever they may be, as Summer Christmas and I'll do my best to reblog. Have fun my pretties, and continue to be FINNEMAWESOME!

I am so sorry to spring this so late, but linguini17 never received a Secret Santa gift, I think, and I couldn’t let someone be gift-less! So, I drew you this little picture- Martin is grumpy and Douglas is a-scheming, and I saw you liked those two so I hope you’ll enjoy it! Thank you everyone!

Hello! I think a majority of them have been- a few were sent to people directly, which is completely fine! I think there are a couple that haven’t quite been finished yet, and only one I haven’t heard from at all. So if anyone is still waiting, please let me know :))) Us admins are gonna judge the sugar mouse comp soon, so there’s that still to look forward to!

Hey, everyone!

I didn’t realise the summer christmas tag would be so full of random stuff, so I might have missed a few peoples’ secret santa gifts. As it’s been a little hard to keep track, if anyone hasn’t received a gift please could you pop me a message? Thank you so much! I hope you are all having a lovely week :)

Here is my Summer Christmas present for klecksfarbe; sorry it’s late, dear!  I’ve always loved the St. Petersburg episode, especially how the dicey landing goes and what a united front Martin and Douglas seem to present in facing down the evil Gordon Shappey.  Consider this a “deleted scene” that explains some of the newfound camaraderie between the two of them.  Douglas Richardson & Martin Crieff, a little bit of emotional hurt/comfort, can be read as gen or pre-slash depending on your goggles.  ;-)

Mayday, mayday. Golf Echo Romeo Tango India, suspected bird strike. We have one engine on fire. Request immediate return and priority landing St Petersburg.”  Martin gripped the control column with white-knuckled fingers, struggling to keep GERTI’s nose up as the aeroplane shuddered and bucked.  

Golf Tango India, roger your mayday. Continue as cleared, contact Pulkovo, approach one two four decimal two.”

“Roger.”  The tremor was falling out of Martin’s voice now.  “One two four decimal two,” he confirmed.

Good luck.”  ATC’s words were hardly encouraging, but Martin couldn’t spare a thought for that now.

Fire is out, Captain,” Douglas reported.  “One two four decimal two is selected.”  Martin could feel Douglas’s eyes on him.  “Martin, do you want me to land it?”

Christ, it would be so easy, to let Douglas do this.  Douglas who never messed up, Douglas who always came out on top.  Not Martin, against whom Lady Luck seemed to hold a personal grudge.  But Martin was keeping GERTI level, transferring control now would add a level of risk they could not afford.  And Martin was Captain.

No. I’ll do it,” Martin said, his voice conveying all the steadiness and confidence he didn’t feel.  He was so braced for an argument that he hardly comprehended Douglas’s soft-spoken reply at first.

“Okay.”

___________

“Post-flight checks complete.”  Douglas’s voice was still uncharacteristically subdued.  “Carolyn and Arthur have gone along to the terminal.  Ready to brave the cold again?”

Martin could feel it coming, like the tide pulling sand slowly and inexorably from underneath his feet and it was only a matter of moments until he fell.  He cleared his throat, aiming for a steady tone of voice despite the iron band that seemed to be tightening around his chest, squeezing the breath from his lungs.  “You go ahead.  I’ll — I’ll just check a few more things here.”

“You’re sure?”  He could feel Douglas’s hesitation.  

“I’m sure.”  He kept his eyes on the control panel, still feeling Douglas’s gaze on him.  Please go, he thought as the cold sweat prickled up his spine, his vision starting to grey around the edges.  Please.  The only thing worse than having this happen was to have Douglas still here, watching it happen.

Hey everyone!

I hope you had a LOVELY summer christmas! We got a good amount of secret santa gifts posted, but we are still lacking a few. A couple of people have spoken to me, and it’s completely fine because the deadline was very sudden! I shall wait a little longer, and then I may pop a message to you just to check how it’s all going! It won’t be shouty- I am WAY more like Arthur than Carolyn. Anyway, happy holidays!

I tried to submit this one yesterday, but I guess it didn’t go through…

Saw you had a lot of X-Men and Avengers, so I give you a Cabin Pressure/Marvel crossover:
The ever helpful Angel Arthur gives Captain Martin the one thing he’s always wanted… a chance to fly!
