arthurrific!, oh arthur, martin's vast knowledge, muh

"Counter, Original, Spare, Strange" (Cabin Pressure happyfic: Martin/OMC; R)

Hi, everybody!

With this fic, I'm completing my happy Martin trilogy - I've written him a het happily-ever-after, a gen happily-ever-after, and now here's the slash HEA. Perhaps now I can concentrate a little more on the other awesome characters of Cabin Pressure. (There exists, right now on my lj, a private entry titled "Arthurrific!" that might or might not be notes for the long story I've been plotting that centers on our favorite steward.) One scene in the story was inspired by this unbelievably adorable prompt from ersatzkapitaen.

Anyway, this story is Martin/OMC (with background Carolyn/OMC and Douglas/OFCs), R, and just under 10,000 words. My thanks to oxoniensis and kate_lear, who both did their usual sterling work as betas and Britpickers. Title from "Pied Beauty" by Gerard Manley Hopkins, but the real title (and summary) is happy boyfriends.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
