Re the middle seat, I used to do this when I had to use Ryanair from Malta to Luton.
TBH, I didn’t mind the other passenger also used the seat, so long as there was room for my stuff and a quiet (positive) word at the outset avoided any unpleasantness. I also left the BP on the seat, too.
I once booked a whole row of three and what was interesting, as I had to get the CC to tell a guy that they were all mine and he couldn’t move to the aisle after take off – he wasn’t best pleased to go back to his B seat.
