“H-How did you—”
“Oh Martin, don’t you remember? Your entire interview was recorded.”
“How did I get my hands on it? Well, what can I say, I’m a man of many talents. In fact there is very nearly, almost certainly nothing that I cannot do.”
“Yes, ‘me.’ Although… there is one thing I cannot seem to manage, despite my innumerable talents…”
“I can’t seem to convince a certain airline captain to stay with this first officer.”
I imagine this happening just a few days before Martin’s departure from MJN. As a result of Douglas’ persuasively sweet banter, Martin
falls madly in love with his first officer and decides to stay.
(Somewhat on a tangent: When I first heard Martin’s “capsized duck” comment, I was riding the train home from work and I suddenly burst out in a fit of uncontrollable laughter, traumatizing many of my fellow train-mates…)
Because I can’t bear the thought of Douglas being without a Martin and MJN being without any of the four.
In case the text is hard to read:
Martin: Douglas, you’re in my seat!!
Douglas: Oh! Am I really?
Martin: Yes. Yes, Douglas, you are. I am the captain of this plane, as my hat suggests, and as such, it is customary for me, the captain, to sit in the left seat, the captain’s seat. And you, Douglas, should sit in the right seat, the first officer’s seat.
Douglas: But Martin, you forget. You accepted that job offer at Swiss Airways, so starting next week, you’ll be a first officer and I’ll be the captain here.
Martin: Yes, but that’s next week. As of now, I am still—
Douglas: We all know you need the practice so you’re starting your first officer duties early.
Martin: No. Nonononono. Douglas, that’s absurd!
Douglas: Of course, there is one thing you can do that may persuade me otherwise.
Martin: And what’s that?
Douglas: …Don’t take that job.
Martin: W-What? Why??
Douglas: Because… Dare I say it… I’ll miss you… Sir.
And then they did unspeakable things in the flight deck.
Crap sketches are crap… but I wonder if the characters are recognizable at least >.>
Also, this was going to be a continuous horizontal pic but tumblr’s annoying with sizing.
And I wonder if you can tell that I got lazier and lazier L to R. Poor Jawn looks like utter shit. What is quality art?
But here’s what I’ve been up to:
Went to Build-a-Bear and now I have a two-hearted “bear polar” born on July 7, 1853 and his name is Benedict.
If you got all those references…
If not, you need to brush up on your Nerdism.
(1) two hearts = time lord (2) “bear polar” = Cabin Pressure (3) July 7, 1853 = generally accepted bday of John Watson (4) Benedict = Cumberbatch

In other news, I probably won’t be updating anytime soon because I’m currently on Spring Break staying at my friend’s place and exploring Texas. Never been outside the Northeast so this is quite the adventure.
Oh god! I just HAD to get hooked on Cabin Pressure this weekend. Dammit. Going to fail these midterms.
Anyways, I’m shipping Douglas and Martin like no one’s business! I fucking love Douglas and his endlessly hilarious sarcasm. They’re somewhat like the modern day Jeeves and Wooster.
Ahhhh seriously, you should all listen to CP if you haven’t already.
(edit: whoops! Martin’s ginger?? Thought he was being played by Brunettebatch -_- …kind of fixed it?)
