On a happier note! February’s Patreon bonus wallpaper is some uncomplicated Dex/Hermosa fluff. Going all the way back to the pre-Kudzu years for this one.
Doctor: Basic facts first — can you tell me your name?
Hermosa: Hermosa Dulac.
Hermosa (thinking): Let Northwind think I don’t even remember getting married.
Doctor: Fill in the numbers 1-13 on the clock face?
Hermosa (thinking): Drawn while doing an impression of a person with hemispherical brain damage.
Doctor: Tell me about one thing you saw yesterday.
Hermosa: There were these pretty vines . . . growing in the windows.
Doctor: Are they there now?
Hermosa: No! Did you move them?
Hermosa (thinking): Sorry, Kudzu . . . I’m just flat-out cribbing from your hallucinations at this point.
Doctor: Name the four objects in the picture?
Hermosa: Uh . . . it’s, it’s the thing you eat . . .
Hermosa (thinking): Oh, stars, this isn’t an act! I know what they are — but I really can’t find the words.
