"Do you want to hear one you’ve never heard before? I’ll tell you one
that I guarantee you have never heard before. My biggest weakness
as a pilot is that I’m not very good at flying aeroplanes.
I mean, I’m good enough, like the sim said: I’m adequate. Adequate to the task. But I don’t do it easily, it’s not second nature to me.
On your scale of one to ten, if one is the bare minimum of competence, I’m about a four. And I used to be a one - no, I used to be a zero.
And then I took my C.P.L., again, and then again.
And then I was a one, and then a two, and then a three, and now a four.
And I’m not finished yet. And that’s why you should employ me, that’s why you’d be lucky to employ me: because if you’re not naturally good, if you can’t rely on just knowing how to do it like Doug - like some people can, then you have to, well you have to be a perfectionist, actually, and I am one. And that’s why, even when you’ve turned me down, I’m going to keep on flying. Because flying is the perfect job, and I won’t settle for a life where I don’t get to do it."

Cabin Pressure, Yverdon-les-Bains (via hushmyheadhushmyheart)

I love this quote so much because of the parallels with Finnemore himself. "Do you want to hear one you’ve never heard before?" The main thing I like about John’s comedy is his originality. "My biggest weakness is I’m not very good at flying" and "I don’t do it easily, it’s not second nature to me"; John has always made it clear he doesn’t enjoy writing, it’s not what he loves most of all but he’s a perfectionist and wants to be the one in control. I can also easily imagine that he used to feel like a one, then became a two, and so on, and that he’s only getting better. "…even when you turn me down, I’m going to keep flying", the BBC did turn his Souvenir Programme down the first time but he kept going and this year we’re getting the 4th series of a show that got a “no” once. This whole speech could’ve directly been said by Finnemore and will always be one of my favorite quotes.

If you like Cabin Pressure, you WILL watch this video and you WILL drown in your own tears of pain and feels. How can you even make something like this?! It’s a radio show! A comedy! This should not be possible!

This is amazing, just watch it OK?

Merry Christmas Jenny! Here it is, your Sherlock Secret Santa gift! It’s a Cabin Pressure/Sherlock crossover, based on your tags from this post (as well as the post itself, obviously). Hopefully you like it, and enjoy reading it. :)

Title: our hearts were little stones
Word Count: 2,903 words
Summary:

It’s Sherlock who’s on the other side of the door.

John’s first thought is that he’s going crazy. Why else would he be seeing Sherlock right now? But as he stares for too long, slowly, differences start to appear. This man is shorter than Sherlock, his complexion is far worse, and his hair is red. Possibly the biggest difference of all is the huge smile plastered across his face. Even when he was smiling, Sherlock never seemed to radiate so much joy, especially over something as trivial as meeting a new person.

“Icarus Removals!” the man chirps. “Are you John Watson?”

John stares. “The boxes are upstairs,” he says, because he really can’t think of anything else to say.

AO3.

I LITERALLY CANNOT EVEN BEGIN TO FORM WORDS ABOUT HOW MUCH I AM IN LOVE WITH THISAKDFJKALA SELF-DESTRUCTS IN PAINFUL MIX OF MARTIN CRIEFF ANGST AND RECOVERING JOHN/MARTIN JOY AND THEN STARTS TO CRY

#sherlock #cabin pressure #NO #(& then john asked martin out for coffee because he looks so much like sherlock #he THINKS he's sherlock at first because sherlock can't really be dead can he? #but then martin turns out to be well martin #and sherlock is good at acting but he's not that good #and john finds himself actually liking martin #and they keep going out for coffee #it becomes a tradition #and john starts getting two coffees after realizing that martin just asks for a cup of hot water after the first two coffees #and wordlessly handing it to martin #and when they kiss for the first time john is trying his hardest not to think about sherlock #and now i've thoroughly depressed myself with this headcanon)

Hi, guys. My name’s Martin Crieff, the captain, and I’m the guy in charge of flying you today. On behalf of the rest of the guys on my team, and the guys back the ground, let me give you guys one hell of a big MJN welcome onboard today. Now, before we go right ahead and fly some plane, I’m going to ask you to pay attention to this short safety demonstration. Hey, I know guys. Big yawn, eh? Heh. But you know what? It might just save your life.  A-a-a-although, of course, an air accident is statistically incredibly unlikely. Okay. See you on the flipside of the safety demonstration. Ciao!
