HERZ AND BEN, "Oh fuck, OH FUCK."

bonesmakenoise:

Bennett Marrow is not exactly a towering paragon of strength, in spite of the whole lycanthropy issue. Standing at about six-nothing and around a hundred and twenty pounds, a good gust can send him staggering.

Herz Hessian, on the other hand? The scarred-up Kansan had the approximate dimensions of a Dorito with severely bulked up arms and the occasional case of what Rory liked to call “the murder pout.” Generally, Herz was either worriedly chewing on a lip, shyly smiling through what was left of his hair, or nose-deep in a book—on the odd chances he had to look bored in public, not staring at his feet, his thousand-yard stares could look a little menacing. No matter how often Ben kissed them, lavished attention and affection on them, the ragged scars on Herz’s face didn’t do him a ton of favors, visually.

So, that didn’t help to explain how Bennett ended up defending him in a fight. Well, it wasn’t so much a fight as Ben getting his nose moved to a different part of his face by a lucky punch from a drunk asshole and channeling just enough wolf to put the asshole on the ground afterwards.

It all happened so fast, Herz could barely piece together the events, even moments after. They were passing a dive bar on the way back to the parking garage, and Herz glanced inside. Reflex, more than anything. Some drunk stumbled out after them, shouting something about Herz looking at him funny, and grabbed his wrist.

Not necessarily a great situation for the average joe, but clammy cold hands on rope-rash scars generally doesn’t do anything great for attack survivors. Especially not Herz.

He froze, breath catching in his chest. He blinked, and another hand was on top of his, pulling the drunkard away with a harsh bark of a shout. Freezing heat crept in from the sides of his head, wicked and aching, his breath coming back in a quick wheeze. The loud crack of a fist in Bennett’s face didn’t do anything to stall the ensuing panic attack. He blinked again, though, and the asshole was on the ground. Ben is suddenly just rolling his wrist, trying to get the joints to pop, his other hand somewhat occupied in trying to stem the flood of blood pouring out of his obviously broken nose.

His eyes are bright and livid, but immediately faded to their warmth and worry when they returned to Herz. He ducked down—ducked down? Herz realized he’d fallen back on his ass at some point, he’d been in such a haze of panic he hadn’t even noticed. Ben reached the Kansan’s eye level and gently placed his non-bloodied hand on the man’s arm.

“H-hey. Breathe, Herz.” A soft, sweet reminder that Ben always went to when something set his boyfriend off like that. “In. Out. Come on, breathe with me. In—”

“…oh, f-f-fuck.” Neurons began to fizzle out of one panic, into a new one. “Oh, FUCK. B-ben, y-y—”

“That’s not breathing.” His voice is even more nasally than usual, though he is trying to chuckle.

“F-fuck the breathing, B-ben! Your—your nose, Ben—”

“B-breathe? Please? I’m scared you’re gonna g-go, go purple on me or something.” Ben tries his damnedest to not look like a kicked puppy, but, as usual, never succeeds. “Ambulance is already on the way, what am I going t-t’do ‘til then?”

Herz feels some of the tension melt off, especially with Ben’s somewhat unusual calm. He takes a deep breath—shakes off the bratty thought of, not because you ASKED— holds it for a moment, and breathes out. He does it again, and Ben’s doing his best to hide his bloody smile behind his hand.

“I—I knew that jackass k-kinda—kinda r-really set you off. You okay?”

“…y-y-yuh— your n-nose is b-broken and, and you’re asking me how I am?” His voice ends in a squeak.

Ben gives a wet, throaty chuckle and shrugs. “The—th-the moon’s only in three days, this—this’ll heal up right away. M-more likely that I’ll have to—t-to fake it, than anything.”

Herz just quietly puts a hand to his face in an attempt to compose himself. Right. Supernatural boyfriend. He lives with a giant fucking wolf for twelve hours every month, how exactly did he manage to forget?

“Y—I’m—are you okay?” Herz finally manages from behind his own palm.

“I asked first.”

“B-Ben.”

“Indulge the injured i-idiot?”

Herz sighs, the tension falling away entirely, at least for now. “I’m—I’m okay, Ben. I’m fine.”

“Then, I-I am, too.”

I FINISHED AND IT LOOKS SORT OF OKAY. It’s just Bennett and Herz (my oc and blu’s oc, respectively, if you…. haven’t picked up on that yet or didn’t know) chilling out on the couch. This is probably the day before Ben’s due to transform and he’s all achey and sore and bleh.

Also every human being is smaller than they were originally designed to be when I draw them, I’m sorry, Herz.

and then I found really old art and was shocked by how much i still liked it

Oh my god, this is such an adorable drawing of Ben! And Herz, too, but Ben’s expression…

LOOKIT THESE BABIES!

bonesmakenoise asked:
I JUST THOUGHT OF A DUMB DIARY RELATED WAY FOR BEN TO PROPOSE THAT IS DIFFERENT THAN USUAL. SOMEWHAT RELATED. Herz is reading diaries and catching up, and he's gotten to one that's from like four months ago when Ben said he could read them, and the entry says "Herz is now reading these. I hope he enjoys them. I also hope he might marry me, but that's a little bold to write down. Oops, it's pen, can't erase it. Would you marry me, Herz Hessian? I'm not joking. The ring is around here somewhere."

I’M GOING TO POST THIS BECAUSE THIS IS THE SWEETEST MOTHERFUCKING THING I’VE EVER GODDAMN READ AND I WANT IT IN THE HERZ TAG AND I WANT EVERYONE TO SEE IT OH MY GOD

asktherappinroboyfriends asked:
hello! I recently discovered your art and your character Herz is very interesting! One thing I noticed that I was curious about, you mention a couple times that he's misogynistic... does he ever address that/fix that or no? (Or is that spoilers for his story haha)

He never really got around to fixing it, no. He’s really polite and has such a terrible time expressing himself, most just don’t realize it. Also most of his misogyny is targeted at himself—he gender polices himself all the fucking time, but its all mental stuff, not someone could really catch him on unless they’ve known him for a long time. He’s really not vocal about what goes on in his head, expressing his insecurities would be ‘weakness’. Idk if that’s something he’ll ever work through just because its only a small part of Herz’s mental bullshit, and there’s way bigger hurtles in the kid’s path that he has to clear first. Plus, he just doesn’t hang with the right people to teach him better. He kinda gravitates towards assholes.

blu everyone is like ‘who is this beautiful boy with the hair???’. And I’m just like RIGHT?? Who gave him the right to be so precious and to have such fab hair. And what’s the deal with your ability to draw all that hair. That ain’t even right it’s so ridiculous tell me your secret.

see this is why I wont let him cut it, Y’ALL UNDERSTAND THAT THE HAIR NEEDS TO STAY 

don’t worry tho I struggle drawing it too. Actually! During those last three frames I figured out if you draw the silhouette of the hair first and THEN add all the swoopy detail bullshit, it goes a lot easier. Very recent secret, but there you go <3

ttp394 asked:
Hey, so I just looked at a lot of your Herz drawings, and i reaaaaaaaally love them, but is there somewhere where his backstory is explained? Cause I couldn't find it but I absolutely love him already, sooo :D

Well, there’s the RP journal I used to use for him. Its got a summary of what happened to him in the game. And there’s a Lot that happened to him. There’s also some memes I filled out and then past all that shit, the actual RPing

I’m really glad you like him bb! If you poke around his journal some, will you tell me what you think?

for reference, all of the times Ben first met him, being the smartass he is, he did the accurate german version until Herz and Rav’s pronunciation rubbed off on him

and at first it would make Herz feel Really Weird cuz oh great now he sounds weird and foreign

Hello, German person speaking here! ^_^ The ‘z’ in Herz is indeed pronounced like ‘z’ in hertz. The ‘e’ though sounds more like the first ‘e’ in a word (e.g. elementary) though and the ‘r’ is almost inaudible. dict.leo[.]org has audiosamples :)

thank you darlin!

hahaha I’ve always been over here going Herzzzzzz (though I think german would sound more like Hairdz)

yupp! That’s about what I assumed too

the only people who do the german pronunciation are his parents. Both he and his brother use the American bastardization
