Steve Harris: You just have the mind of an innocent, non-tainted child

Song of the Day:
Shy is an underrated AOR band from England that had moderate commercial success during the 80s. Break Down the Walls was one of their biggest radio successes and the video finally secured them a spot on MTV.
It’s a song of triumph in the face of obstacles, whether they be trivial or life -changing. The melody is empowering and battle-like with the chanting chorus building the energy. Overall it’s a fun song in an excellent discography by a cruelly underrated band.
(P.S. Their original singer Tony Mills (the guy with the white hair in the picture) passed away after a long battle with cancer last year. His solo career following his time with Shy is worth listening to, especially as the revenue from his catalogue is supporting his widow and the charity founded in his name.)

Nicko McBrain: YES!

As always, please note that NSFW alphabets typically come out quicker than regular fics.
A = Aftercare (what they’re like after sex)
The aftercare is usually pretty quick and sweet, because he’s very gentle during sex and doesn’t do anything that needs special care. If he’s tired enough, you’ll just wait to take a shower til the next morning and fall asleep right there while cuddling or spooning. If he’s got the energy and you both feel kinda gross, you’ll take a shower together and then you’ll go straight to sleep. Sometimes, you both sleep naked, sometimes not. The two of you are both almost always completely exhausted after sex, so it’s not common for you to do anything else except sleep, unless you both want to watch a movie and get takeout, or just talk for a while in bed. He always asks to make sure he did a good job and didn’t hurt you, and then tells you how great you did and how much he loves you.
B = Body part (their favorite body part of theirs and also their partner’s)
Nicko really likes your smile, because it’s the prettiest thing in the world, and he also likes to see you laugh. He’s also obsessed with your hair, always playing with it and running his fingers through it and helping you rub shampoo into it in the shower and all that. One of the reasons he usually chooses to be big spoon is because your hair smells good. Nicko doesn’t really focus on his personal appearance or anything, but he’s proud of his drumming skills.
C = Cum (anything to do with cum, basically)
There’s not really too much to say here; he’s got enough experience that he knows how to keep things from being messy, which is good because he’s got a pretty big load. He usually cums inside you or on your tummy, but if you’re giving him a blowjob, he’ll do it in your mouth.
D = Dirty secret (pretty self explanatory, a dirty secret of theirs)
Probably the only thing that could count as a dirty secret for Nicko is that he really, really likes lingerie; he loves silk and velvet and laces and bows, and his favorite colors on you are red, black, and especially pink. The best thing you could do for his birthday is buy new pieces and model all of them for him, though he also randomly buys you sets of lingerie that he sees in stores and thinks would look good on you
E = Experience (how experienced are they? do they know what they’re doing?)
Although some people don’t see him as being conventionally attractive, his good humor and happy personality got him a good amount of girls, not to mention his status as a drummer in a famous rock band, so he’s definitely got the amount of experience needed to know what he’s doing and to be good at it. Nicko knows his way with sex positions, and almost nothing the two of you have tried has ever been awkward or uncomfortable because of that fact. He can teach you new things and guide you through new experiences, without being controlling.
F = Favorite position (this goes without saying)
Probably either missionary or spooning from behind, although cowgirl is also a favorite of his. Nicko also likes to pick you up and have you against a wall or up on a countertop. Anything that’s comfortable and allows him to see your face and have his body close to yours. I’d say that reverse cowgirl and doggy style are both pretty rare, just because he’d rather see your face than just your ass, but he does like your ass, so he’ll still do those positions occasionally. The one position that he probably won’t do it bending you over furniture and taking you from behind. It just doesn’t do anything for him.
G = Goofy (are they more serious in the moment? are they humorous? etc.)
It’s Nicko; he’s almost always got a big smile on his face, and he’s always laughing or making a joke about something. Serious sex just isn’t his thing, so he’s not the guy to go for if you’re into angry or rough sex. He’d never yell or raise his voice at you, nor would he be mean and angry and controlling during sex. Nicko’s a happy guy, and you make him feel even happier, so it only makes sense that the sex would be happy, too.
H = Hair (how well groomed are they? does the carpet match the drapes? etc.)
Nicko’s got a pretty average amount of hair; not too much, but he’s not hairless either. It’s a bit darker than the hair on his head, and he’s got it on his chest, although it’s light. He’ll groom it if you want, and if not, he’ll just leave it alone.
I = Intimacy (how are they during the moment? the romantic aspect)
Nicko isn’t overly sappy(he doesn’t usually hold your hand or say overly romantic things to you), but he also isn’t cold or dominating or rough, either. He won’t sprinkle rose petals on the bed or anything like that, but there’s plenty of praise and encouragement and kisses and laughing and closeness during sex. He makes you feel safe and comfortable and loved, and that’s one aspect of the sex that never, ever changes.
J = Jack off (masturbation headcanon)
Nicko doesn’t have a high enough sex drive to require him to masturbate; having sex with you is enough for him, and he’s just never been one for masturbating anyway. He’s just a little bit too mature for it. That’s not to say that he’s not willing to do it sometimes when he needs to; on the contrary, he’s always got a collection of pictures of you with him that he takes on tour, just for that exact reason. But again, it’s rare.
K = Kink (one or more of their kinks)
Probably the only legitimate kink that Nicko has is a praise kink, but who doesn’t like that? He loves to compliment you and say sweet things to you to make you smile, and he likes when you encourage him and tell him he’s doing a good job. He could be called a switch, since he can sometimes be submissive and other times be a little bit more dominant and in control; he’s never forceful or demanding with you, though.
L = Location (favorite places to do the do)
Anywhere that’s private and guarantees that no one will walk in one the two of you. This could be your house, or a backstage room, or just any place where there’s no one else around and you’re not out in the open. He prefers for things to be comfortable, though, so really anywhere that’s in the house could be his favorite place.
M = Motivation (what turns them on, gets them going)
Really just the idea of having sex with you is all he needs to get in the mood; he doesn’t need anything like dirty talk or seducing. Nicko loves you, and thinks you’re the sexiest girl on earth, so he doesn’t need much encouragement. If you initiate it, he’ll probably be even more into it, since he likes to know that you feel the exact same way about him that he does about you.
N = No (something they wouldn’t do, turn offs)
Nicko’s definitely not a kinky guy. BDSM of any kind is out; no bondage, no daddy or master kink, no degrading, and definitely no pain play or anything painful in general. He’d never hurt you on purpose, and it doesn’t arouse him. If anything, it takes him out of the mood. He’s also not fond of ice or wax play, because it just feels weird and not sexy in any way. He also won’t share you with anyone, and he doesn’t feel comfortable with exhibitionism of any kind.
O = Oral (preference in giving or receiving, skill, etc.)
Nicko would almost always choose giving oral over receiving it, because he likes making you feel good; he feels almost guilty when you give him head, since he can’t really do anything for you while you’re doing it, but he’d never turn a blowjob down, either. Even if there isn’t time for regular sex on a certain day, Nicko is absolutely fine with just giving each other oral instead. Also, blindfolds are absolutely out; he has to be able to see you, or it just doesn’t feel good.
P = Pace (are they fast and rough? slow and sensual? etc.)
Nicko’s in the middle; he’s definitely not rough with you, but he’s not super sensual or anything like that. He’s not too fast or too slow, he’s just energetic and doesn’t jack-hammer you; he puts in effort and actually concentrates on you and making you feel good. Depending on the mood, he may get a little faster or a little more slow and sensual, but he’s never, ever rough.
Q = Quickie (their opinions on quickies, how often, etc.)
Despite his aversion to kinks and public sex, Nicko actually likes quickies. He’s a lot busier than he wishes he was, since he’s in a world famous rock band and all, so even if he didn’t like them, he’d have to work with them anyway. As long as they’re somewhere the two of you don’t have to worry about getting caught, like a backstage room or a closet, he’s down. He’s got the experience to know how to make the 5–10 minutes count, and always ensures that you cum, even if he has to get on his knees for it. Of course, he doesn’t need sex that often, so if he’s in a situation where there’s very little time and a good chance of being caught, he won’t take the risk and will just wait until there’s time.
R = Risk (are they game to experiment? do they take risks? etc.)
There really aren’t that many risks with Nicko. He’s not a kinky guy, as we’ve established, so equipment and sex toys are out, and he’s got certain positions that he doesn’t like. He really doesn’t like sharing you or anything like that, so threesomes would most likely be out as well. I guess he’d be willing to take risks with trying new positions, but that’s really about it for him.
S = Stamina (how many rounds can they go for? how long do they last?)
He can last a very long time; rounds aren’t very common, but sex can last anywhere from an hour to two hours to even longer if he’s really feeling up to it and has the free time. If the two of you actually decide to go for rounds, it’ll be somewhere around two or three, and they’ll each be just as long and feel just as amazing. He makes sure you finish every single time.
T = Toys (do they own toys? do they use them? on a partner or themselves?)
Toys are definitely rare, if even used at all. Nicko prefers regular sex without using anything like that, and if he does decide to bring in a toy of some kind, it won’t be anything wild. It’ll be a tame, more normal toy, like maybe a dildo or a vibrator or something. Nothing weird or kinky or painful. If you absolutely want to use them, he’ll do it, but otherwise they’re usually just a no-go.
U = Unfair (how much they like to tease)
Nicko’s definitely not a tease. It’s just not part of his personality; he also doesn’t really like being teased himself. It ties in with how he isn’t into any particular kinks. He doesn’t want to do anything sexual in public or in front of other people, so teasing each other under the table won’t usually happen. He also isn’t one for dirty talk, so no teasing words are exchanged either.
V = Volume (how loud they are, what sounds they make, etc.)
Nicko’s relatively quiet, aside from occasional moans or words of praise or just general talking. He doesn’t over exaggerate anything, because he just doesn’t feel the need to. Although some people interpret this to mean that he’s not very involved in the sex or that he’s unfocused, this is far from case. In actuality, his full attention is always on you, and even though you can’t hear him, just looking at his face will tell you that he’s in a good mood and that he’s enjoying it.
W = Wild card (a random headcanon for the character)
Nicko’s all-time favorite things to do with you is to curl up on the couch together and watch Disney movies. Yes, I know, the drummer of Iron Maiden watching Disney movies sounds weird, but he loves them and absolutely gets into them when you watch them together. He knows most of the songs by heart. He also likes to bake cookies with you so that you can eat them together while you’re watching the movie. Nicko’s favorite Disney movies are The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, The Princess and The Frog, Tangled, Frozen, and Sleeping Beauty.
X = X-ray (let’s see what’s going on under those clothes)
Nicko’s a big guy, so it only makes sense that his dick is big, too. It’s about 7 inches long, give or take, and extremely thick. I mean, you can barely wrap your hand around the base. That thing can stretch the hell outta you, although this is also a bit of a problem because it hurts quite a bit the morning after. He always makes sure to use a lot of lube for that exact reason, because Nicko hates hurting you in any way.
Y = Yearning (how high is their sex drive?)
I’d say Nicko is like a 7.5/10 on the horny scale. He loves sex, and he’s always enthusiastic and happy about doing it, but he doesn’t really need it all that often, and he won’t bug you about it or complain if you don’t have it often. I’d say sex happens at least 5 out of the 7 days a week, and sexual acts of some kind(oral, fingering, etc.)are pretty common, sometimes at least once a day. It really depends on how eager you are, not him.
Z = Zzz (how quickly they fall asleep afterwards)
Sex tires him out, especially since he often goes for long periods of time, so once everything is settled and the two of you are in bed cuddling or spooning and the lights are off, he’s out like a light. Nicko’s like a teddy bear, always cuddling you with his arms around your waist and his head tucked into your neck, or yours in his. He switches between big and little spoon, but he’s usually the big spoon just cuz he’s bigger and has more body heat. He also snores just a little bit, but you don’t tell him that. He gets so tired sometimes that he starts to fall asleep in the shower when the two of you are washing off afterwards, and when this happens, you usually choose to help him dry off and then lead him to bed and let him go to sleep completely naked.
