Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the first (and probably last) Cabin Pressure GERTI fic. What’s a GERTI fic? Well, you know how Sherlock fandom has the 221B – a self-contained story told in 221 words and the last word has to begin with ‘b’? I thought to myself, “There must be a similar concept which could be applied to Cabin Pressure fic.” Unfortunately there’s no specific number that immediately comes to mind when you think of the series – and I asked several fans of the show and we all came up with different numbers, including 100 (otters), 400 (quiches), 312 (Gerti’s model number) but nothing really striking.

So, in the end, I decided to make it simply a GERTI – a fic which ends with five words which consecutively start with the letters ... well, see if you can work it out for yourself ... (!)

This story takes place after Ottery St Mary.
