En’s name is weird when you’re Finnish because “en” means “I don’t”, “I won’t”, maybe “I wouldn’t” or sometimes “I’m not”, like once I had a text post drafted for a text post meme with tags “en sanois näin”, in English, “en would say this”, but in Finnish it literally reads as “I wouldn’t say this” and I stared at it for a couple of seconds confused about why it was in my drafts and why did I say I wouldn’t say it when it was, in fact, a relatable text post, until I realized that oh!! It’s about En!!
Characters: Belle/Adam, Lumiere/Plumette, various historical figures
Summary: It’s hard to explain the world of the court to Belle, but Adam has done his best to prepare her. Then he realizes too late that he should have better prepared himself. Because as much as he has changed, there’s a part of him that is still the prince from before. And a part that is still the Beast.
This is actually based on my NSFW prompts that have now spurred me on to write this. The story is dedicated to my awesome bestie @tasseomancer with a big thank you to the entire BatB 2017 fandom who have ruined me. Just ruined me. Special thank you to @je-suis-em-jee and @dereksprettyboy for prompting me to write my prompts.
‘’I think a lot of people are afraid to put it out there and talk about it but we weren’t. I think that might be a big reason people have connected to it and got behind it. I feel like for anyone who’s sharing feelings of topics like that, it’s a little bit scary but I feel its more therapeutic and cathartic to write about that stuff, to talk about that stuff and put it out there. You feel better about it. To know that other people can connect to that makes you feel even better. As scary as it at first, it eventually just pays off and turns out to be good in the end.’’
