i have a lot more but this is all i can think of right now (^: i love my boys please ask me more about them!!!!
a pharmacist slash chemist, part time librarian, dr benzedrine played a huge role in the continuous development of bl/inds drugs. dedicated, hardworking, and studious, it was easy for him to come up with formulas and solutions just like that, leading to a Better Day.
however, things started to get to his head. determined to ensure that his drugs were safe before setting them out to the public, it was not uncommon for him to lock himself in his lab for days on end, testing results on himself.
there were constant underdoses and overdoses, leaving him unstable. he would mix up prescriptions for clients by mistake. this, after a few repeats, lead to him getting in trouble with better living industries. before they could rehabilitate him, though, he’d faked suicide and made a run for the desert. through his madness in testing on himself, the mindfog began to clear and he made sense of what was going on - nothing but poison.
he had grown up in a decent family. it was nuclear, middle class, an average every day family that bl/ind liked seeing. his siblings were intelligent individuals and his parents were admirable, so naturally, he strove to be just like them. growing up through life he worked hard and focused on studying and school, as opposed to making friends or athleticism.
at the end of high school he was valedictorian and submitted to top level classes in one of three of bl/ind’s
colleges. he pursued the medical career, excelling in chemistry, and soon became one of bl/i’s best pharmaceutical scientists. he would also administer and distribute out these drugs with pride.
that would be the beginning, which lead to his end.
—-Of course, the one time I go outside I get hit with a sandstorm and can’t see two Dracs in front of me. I got threats and waves tellin’ me to off myself again. I can’t blame them.
And as stubborn as I am, I do just have to get this out there, yes, I’m sorry. To both Benze and Poison for being the way I am. I’m a manipulative, abusive little freak. Not something to be proud of.
I was never angry at Benze, only terribly irritated. Had been set off by somethin’ earlier today, shouldn’t have taken it out on you, kiddo. Therefore again, I’m sorry for makin’ ya cry.
Poison, I’ve never really been too good of a brother for you, and… yeah, I apologize for that. They say the first step to fixing a problem is realizing you have it, and well… I never really went farther than that. It was a mistake, I know. A terrible one. You don’t have to forgive me, both of you, I get it.
I’m sorry. I’m so deeply sorry that I keep continuing to create messes… and since everyone else wants my head on a pike… it seems fitting that I should disappear for a bit. Maybe for a while. Maybe for forever… and maybe for no time at all. Depends.
I love you all, and… I don’t know what else to add. I apologize for that too.
@drbenzedream, Benze, you are my teacher, my accomplice and my lover.
I will love you, hold you and honor your name, I will respect you, encourage you and cherish you, In health and sickness, Through losses and gains, For all the days of my life, in the desert or out.
Baby, you are my sun, moon, and stars and I’m so glad you decided to escape with me, mi amor y mejor amigo. I thank you so much.
I, Mister Sandman, take you Doctor Benzedrine, to be my partner, my husband until the day we turn to dust hand in hand, if you will have me. xoxo
Sometimes I try to picture what the world was like before the Helium Wars. I know it sounds far-fetched but– just imagine. Green grass and clean water. Actual, proper weddings. An abundance of paper and pencils. Fuck, the delicacies that they had, makes my mouth water in want. However, I only want what I can’t have. I can be jealous all I want but I know I’m never going to get it. I’d give anything for Benz to be in that world and not this one, he doesn’t deserve this.
Sorry for spilling my thoughts, I don’t have paper around me. My baby boy is in my arms and I never want to let go.
