I love Herz’s eyes. I’m still proud of them, like.

Okay, so on the MS Elegante, there was a system that brought characters back from the dead. You die enough times, though, and there’s consequences. The mods didn’t tell us what they’d be and for the first several months of the game, everyone was real cautious about staying under the number. Ele was a horror game so death was gonna happen, but wow. Everyone was concerned.

Then there was a pirate event, and the pirates tried to kidnap passengers and bring them back to their pirate ship. It was made clear that if your char died between the Elegante and the Pirate Ship, there was a 50/50 chance they’d get the death defect, regardless of how many deaths they’d had prior.

I killed Herz during that event and he was the first character to come back with the black eyes. 

I ended up dropping him from the game and reapping him a month or so later and wow, WOW WAS I DETERMINED TO GET THOSE EYES BACK. By the time the game ended, Herz couldn’t even remember what color his eyes used to be. 

I love Ele!Herz’s eyes. They’re like a physical manifestation of how much I fucking loved that game.

'feeling brave yet' my heart is aching! i love Leo so much, always telling Herz how brave he is and trying to help him see it for himself! (and teaching him snark!! oh gOD) im in so much pain i just. love them. so much. its a beautiful pain isnt it?!

I forgot that Leo was also getting him to be physical in an entirely platonic way

#bucktoothfairy #also why did egg pick such a fucking hot PB for Leo #that isn't fair #its literally perfect aND HE IS SO HOT #herz

/sobbing @ all of the above i need to go lay down i wANNA GET YOU STARTED ON LEO CUTTING HERZ’S HAIR BUT I ALSO /DONT/ because as of right now i can only remember wisps of it and im bursting, i think the full weight of it coming back would CRUSH ME.

okay so because I’m fucking evil I went looking for the log

aND I FOUND OUT THERE’S A TV TROPES PAGE FOR ELEGANTE???

I never knew!

also I forgot that time Leo decided he and Herz should have a movie marathon anD IT WAS ADORABLE. ALL THE BASEBALL FLICKS. ALL THE JUNK-FOOD. it was practically their first date lets be real

BUT NO LOOK AT LEO BEING A HOT-ASS HUMAN CUTTING HERZ’S HAIR. Herz who trusts Leo enough to wield sharp objects by his fucking scarred-up face. Herz who hated his hair and has wanted to cut it since forever and Leo is finally giving him this great goddamn gift while being sMOKING HOT

/lays the fuck down

I seriously can’t anymore I just can’t.

#bucktoothfairy #herz #toot toot #the captain is a great man

i remember being so sad likE ARE THEY REALLY GONNA LEAVE US HANGING LIKE THIS but yeah i totally understand. it coulda been so glorious though! (omFG i knew he walked in on Herz but i forgot/never read the thing with Mikey THAT IS HILARIOUS GOD.)

YUPP

the next time Herz actually talked to Leo, they were on the luggage deck and I can’t remember why, but Herz told Leo what color his eyes used to be

and then very soon after that was the Jen event so Herz ended up forgetting most of his life before the boat and what he used to look like, so Leo is one of a small few who know Herz used to have brown eyes when Herz plain fucking doesn’t anymore. And that breaks my heart too. Kage, Jak, Ziek, Remy and Sal all knew Herz before that shit happened. Ben and Tan met Herz after his third death AND after Herz forgot, making Leo the only possible boyfish (besides Kage) to know

there is nothing those two shits didn’t get up to that doesn’t break my fucking heart

donT GET ME STARTED ON LEO CUTTING HERZ’S HAIR JUST FUCKING DONT

SO CUTE AND SO GOOD. god, my heart! like. just. DO NOT WORRY YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN THE LEO/HERZ VOID. i am forever changed by and crying about that pairing. GUH. the strangest but also the most perfect.

I really wish we could’ve like

gotten those shits together

my heart wouldn’t ache nearly so much if it wasn’t left fucking unresolved to the point they never even talked about it. But after a point I really had a hard time tagging consistently and Egg was busy with other games and then Herz was already in a love triangle that was fucking stressful enough without adding a goddamn talking turtle to the mix 

bUt gOD

their relationship will fuck me up to kingdom come

HERZ! :)

wHA OH GOSH I wasn’t expecting my first one to be about my baby okay 8D OKAY 

so okay the big thing with Herz is his duality. 

the duality of his inner monologue and his outward expressions; kid is a stuttering polite mess on the outside, but on the inside he’s judgmental and cusses out himself and others and is just capable of being very nasty and very negative in ways he would never want anyone else to know about. He is determined to be a good person, but on the inside he’s petty and shallow and capable of so much anger and hate as a result of what he’s been through. He keeps that shit locked down tight. He’s also extremely poetic and creative but you’d never know it from talking to him; because of his speech impediment he keeps his sentences short and sticks to common, almost juvenile phrasing.

the duality between his appearance and his body language; Herz is huge and scarred and deep-voiced and in certain iterations has fucking fully black eyes. Dude is capable of being scary as fuck. That is absolutely the last thing he wants to be. He keeps himself hunched and tries to make himself appear smaller and avoids making any big movements or wide gestures. He keeps his voice pitched low which makes his stutter even harder to understand.

the duality between his longing for intimacy and his fear of rejection; Herz wants to be with people, he wants to be physical, he wants to be sexual. He is 99% sure no one wants his ugly scarred-ass anywhere near them unless they verbally tell him otherwise. In some iterations he ends up working through this part and can be more confident and go after the intimacy he craves, but there is aLWAYS hesitation and the assumption he’s gonna turn someone off from him by doing something wrong or simply by looking the way he does. He is desperate for interaction and romance and sexbut he holds himself back and assumes he should never assume someone would want him. Even when he gets with someone, he rarely if ever kisses them first because he’s afraid of putting his scarred mug in their personal space when they don’t want it there

bluandorange asked:
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!
