Hi for fic recs I'm good with anything I just am in a slump trying to find some good Granada style fics and so I thought I would seek the help of an expert xD Maybe some fluff or h/c preferably 1k+ words
Oh good! let’s do this :D

GIFs you say. Alright, how about some romantic interactions between Millenium and their partners. Like, a GIF expressing their love best or something?
My goodness Anon, I just posted that a few hours ago! Way to be on the ball. I will give this a shot, though I’m not sure how great I’ll be. I went with some relationship quirks and things, I hope that’s okay.
GIF Request: Relationship Headcanons - Millennium
Okay, I’m not even sorry XD I mean, have you seen some of his facial expressions. I honestly think the Major would be a little strange in a relationship, though not meaning to be. He’d probably get one of those creepy smiles whenever his partner walked in the room.
The Doctor is rather vocal with compliments when it comes to his partner. He lets them know all of the time how amazing they are. I see him as the kind of guy to be like “Yeah, well, _____ is way better than your partner.” XD
Since the Captain can’t talk, he’d be much more physical when it came to affection. His non-verbal communication would be all that he could show, but wouldn’t hesitate to show his partner that he cares.
XD Okay, again, not sorry. I don’t necessarily see Schrodinger as a clingy partner, but he’d get pretty excited when it came to his partner coming back from a mission. He’d want an immediate hug, though his partner would probably be too tired for his antics, which of course would result in a chase.
Zorin doesn’t understand how she came to be with her partner. Zorin’s partner doesn’t understand how they ended up with Zorin. It just kind of happened. Though Zorin is in no way affectionate, she will randomly tell them that she loves them nonchalantly.
Okay, I couldn’t help it, I’m so sorry! XD So, Luke is a confident fellow, but nonetheless practices his wooing in the mirror to make sure he’s got the right face for this partner. Of course, they usually end up walking in on him…
Jan is the kind of guy who will act super suave and sweet and romantic, only for to end up being a ploy so he can touch his partner in some perverted way. His partner is used to by now, but it’s still rather embarrassing in public.
Rip Van Winkle
Rip is VERY affectionate, probably the most out of everyone in Millennium. She constantly showers her partner in kisses whenever she gets the chance and especially does so whenever they go on dates like to the opera.
Tubalcain is smooth and suave at all times with his partner, though tends to get distracted from them rather easily, but never forgets to show his love somehow. (Also, why does Tony Stark remind me so much of Alhambra, I do not understand by mind sometimes)
Bonus: Dark Walter
ALL OF THE TEASING!! Walter loves to tease his partner, especially around others so he can see them get flustered. He’ll make lude gestures or give crude looks or start spewing innuendos. It’s his thing.
Hello, Silly question coming your way. When is it appropriate to introduce a sex scene into your WIP if it’s not a full blown erotic novel? I have a habit of making chapters 1-4 random details about the characters, and then in chapter 5 I may introduce a sex scene because I’m kind of embarrassed about it. I feel that it’s weird to open a book and the first chapter is full detailed sensuality, but at the same time I run out of exposition content to write about. What should I do?
First, it’s not a silly question. It’s a great question!
A lot of newer writers start writing without understanding what a story actually is–and it isn’t an assortment of scenes where people do random things for no particular reason. Nobody wants to read a story where the first four chapters are “random details about the characters” and then they have sex. That’s not a story. It’s just talking about what people are doing and what they’re like.
Every story needs to have a purpose. The purpose of your story might be to show that an ordinary boy can be someone extraordinary, or that love conquers all. It might even be as simple as showing what it means to be lonely in the 21st century. If you don’t have a reason for telling this story, it’s not going to be a story anyone will want to read.
Part of giving your story a purpose is giving your main character a goal. What does this person want and why? How do they plan to get it?
In a character-driven story that is more “slice of life” than any sort of adventure, your character’s goal can be as mundane as it needs to be, but it still needs to be there. In a story about loneliness, perhaps the character’s goal is to find a companion or learn to be comfortable with being alone. In any case, your goal has to exist and your story should be working toward illustrating this character, their goal, why they want it, and how they struggle toward achieving it.
The first four chapters of your story shouldn’t be random details about your characters. They should establish:
- who your main character is - who the supporting characters are - the setting of your story - what your character’s life is like - what changes in their life to make them establish their goal - what else motivates them toward their goal - what’s at stake if they do or don’t achieve their goal
If your story is about the relationship between these two characters, and the relationship is already established at the beginning, you can put a sex scene in wherever you want to or not at all. Not every story needs to have a sex scene. Don’t feel pressured to put one in if it makes you uncomfortable. You can also choose to do a “fade out” if it’s important to include the fact that they did have sex. If the relationship develops throughout the story, you will probably want to build up to the sex scene by ramping up the romantic and sexual tension between them. In that case, a sex scene may not occur until the middle of a story or toward the end. In other words, there’s no general point at which they should be included. It really depends on the needs of your story.

I gots a question! how's Hellsing, Millennium, Iscariot's reaction of doing the do? -eye brow wiggles-
Oh my~ Alrighty anon, I did this as a mix sort of - thoughts as well as some fluffy cuddling since I wasn’t sure exactly what “reaction” meant, though let me know if you want something different :) Wrote the descriptions with “you” this time. And I apologize for not being able to make every reaction gender-neutral/giving the “partner” a certain sex.

He would allow himself to get lost in you for just a little while, enjoying the aftermath of the encounter and fading away to another place for a while, forgetting what he was, who he was, and how he was.
Seras would immediately take this act as something more than just intimate, but as a promise. From this point on, you and here would be together. Sex to her was a scary thing, so the fact that she did this with you is something of a sign of actual love.
She would not make a big deal out of it at first, but would secretly cherish your time together. She would think about it a lot and want to experience it again, not just for pleasure, but for the bond that was created from it.
He’d prefer cuddling with you on top, loving the feeling of your weight on him as he held you. He was rather perverted, yes, but he the time still meant something to him, especially since it was you.
Walter would not be the most affectionate afterwards, though would be willing to cuddle of course. When you fell asleep though, is when he’d actually showcase his love with light touches as he though about the significance of what just happened.
It’s official now, you’re the Major’s and this act has cemented it. Not the most sentimental type, the Major won’t being expressing any sort of love proclamation, but he will be certain to remind you of your role in his life. That sounded really creepy but it’s hard not to be with the Major.
The Doctor is really into body-worship due to his love of the human body, so expect him to throw compliments at you and keep wanting to touch you after the deed, being absolutely enamored with your body.
The Captain would probably end up falling asleep snuggled up to you, no matter how many times you’ve committed the act and no matter how rough it was. He’ll lay on top of you even, resting his head on your stomach as he falls asleep in your embrace.
Things would be pretty nonchalant and she wouldn’t treat it as a big deal. You two would doze off, messing up the bed space as tossed and turned, but always managed to hang onto each other.
Expect lots of giggling and silly touches after the intimate act. Schrodinger would still make this serious event silly, bopping noses and snuggling up to you with this enthusiasm.
She takes this seriously, so you better too. Now that you two have bonded this way, expect an even deeper need for attention from you. She will want to be with you more after realizing how close you two truly are.
You would need to push if you want to cuddle, considering he’ll just turn around and sleep or smoke. Nonetheless, he’s up for it; don’t believe his whining and teasing - he actually wants to.
For whatever reason, Luke prefers to lay on your lap after sex and give you gentle touches and kisses in random places, loving to mess with your hair as you mess with his.
Tubalcain embarrassingly enough is rather tired afterwards and wants nothing more than to fall asleep. He enjoys using you as a pillow, resting his head on your shoulder, collar, or chest as he quickly falls asleep.
If somehow you were able to convince Anderson to do the act, I hope you cherish it since it probably won’t happen again. He may even be angry with both himself and you for a while for giving into the weakness, though he won’t regret it, which is the most frustrating part of it.
He’d flip his shit for a while. As bishop, he felt he was betraying his duty, but at the same time was looking forward to the next time he could be with you. Everything was so confusing for him. Unlike the others, however, he’d go right ahead and sweep you up again, deciding that he wasn’t going to fight this and he deserved you
Like Anderson, if this were to occur, count yourself lucky, since she probably wouldn’t do it again. Believe me, she’d struggle with the desire to do so, but would fight it. She may even break up with you out of frustration, but just be patient with her.
Another tragic love here. Heinkel would disappear before morning broke through, leaving you alone. They’d just be gone and a lot of searching would ensue where a confrontation would occur. They weren’t restrained by any religious role, but nonetheless were confused, maybe even scared by how close they were becoming.
There you are dear anon, hope you like it and I hope you thought everyone was in character ;) I am so freaking sappy.
i was blessed enough to be able to rewatch the original batb animated movie today with my cousin, and after thinking about it again and again and again and AGAIN, i’ve reached something of a conclusion
everything else is a minor hiccup. if they’d only kept three key things intact in the remake i would not be this angry (warning for spoilers):
belle’s character. the greatest strength the original belle had was that she was gracious, polite, and patient, even in the face of rude boors like gaston, and this strength of character was what ultimately helped her “tame” the beast and bring out the best in him. the new belle was not only haughty and dismissive of just about everyone around her (it might have been something of an upgrade if gaston had been more openly rude to her, but by downplaying gaston and belle’s interaction they made belle look much worse) but her “stubbornness” was almost excruciatingly emphasized to the point of seeming artificial and showed very little development throughout the course of the story which made her look, to me, very immature and unlikable. this might have been in large part due to emma watson not being able to act as any other character than movie!hermione, which i feel doesn’t fit this story at all. somehow, in the year 2017, the movie falls for the trap of making “strong female characters” the usual headstrong, mouthy stereotype of a woman and it makes me roll my eyes
beast’s character. in the original, it was made very clear that although he really did want to be a more polite, kind individual, he didn’t quite know how to do it, hence his numerous losses of temper and faux pas. his beastly nature, so to speak, overpowered the rest of his personality and it took the patience of another person to tame it out of him. he didn’t need a tragic backstory to explain why he became this way; he was a plenty tragic character on his own, and his quest to become a better person wasn’t just a natural result of him falling in love with belle but also an active effort on his part, something that was foreshadowed amply even before they started falling in love. in the remake, though, beast undergoes much less of a development, precisely because he isn’t given much room to develop. he’s your usual broody byronic hero (my friend used the term “emo teenage boy” lmao) who is petulant for the sake of being petulant, is just as reluctant to be close to belle as she is to him at first, and doesn’t show much initiative for a relationship with her, which is why it feels so artificial and out of the blue when he saves her from the wolves
belle and beast’s relationship. this follows naturally from all of the above. i get that they were trying to go for a more “organic” romance where belle and beast are just “naturally compatible, they just don’t know it yet~!” but that’s at the expense of the ENTIRE FUCKING POINT OF BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and just ends up reducing it to another boring straight romcom story instead of one where the importance of changing one another and reaching compromises in relationships is highlighted. i almost feel like the “taming the beast” plot was discarded because belle and beast’s characters were so vastly rewritten that such a plot would seem implausible; belle feels just as immature as beast at times, and beast doesn’t seem to be afflicted with a curse that makes him act more beastly, so much as just a bad personality, but it’s all justified bc “his childhood was shitty, okay?” and what’s the point of a beauty and the beast remake if it’s not….a beauty and the beast story…….
that’s the worst of it, imo. if you read all that, kudos to you. everything else–the dress, the cgi, the designs, even the autotune–is all very minor and forgivable to me in light of the three main things up there, and all the other changes they made to the other characters would also be more palatable if not for them. i actually sort of liked what they did with lefou despite the debacle about his sexuality. i liked what they did with maurice. i liked that they clarified the relationship between beast and his servants a bit more. but all of it falls flat if the main players don’t stand up to scrutiny

The town itself is tiny, as evidenced by the ten minutes it’s taken Louis to drive the entire thing. There’s not a single recognisable brand in sight—no Tesco or McDonald’s or even a bloody Starbucks. Lining the streets instead are mom and pop stores with names like ‘Jerry’s Burgers’ and ‘The Market Basket’ and…
“'Naked & Proud?‘” Louis almost slams on the brakes at the outlandish sign, the name written in a seemingly innocent font, words curved around a large cartoon peach. He can’t help turning into the carpark, easing the car into a spot next to a beat up truck.
He isn’t sure what to make of it. Surely it isn’t a strip joint or sex shop, not with the families and little old ladies going in and out of the establishment. Some kind of nudist hangout, perhaps?
And, oh, God. Did Louis’ mother accidentally send him to live in a nudist colony?
In which Harry runs an organic store, not a nudist colony, and Louis doesn’t know whether to be relieved or disappointed.
