I was looking at her without feeling anything. Without hearing anything.
Hindi ko alam kung papanong gumalaw ang katawan ko at nagawa kong maitaas ang ulo.
And there I saw a man wearing a plain red mask with a scratch on the side holding a gun in his right hand. Huminto sandali ang tingin nito sa akin at walang awang nilagpasan ang katawan ni Clary.
The guy in a mask? Who is he?

Just a collection of quotes from fics in honor of Nutty’s proclaimed Military!Bros day. I wanted to include more, but apparently all my writing is either Earth&Sky or FishTank. Even Voyage which is supposed to be all the boys so I was sure I was going to have a quote in there.... it’s a lot through our Virgil.
From Scenes from Gordon’s Bedside -Chapter 2 Mostly Scott and Virgil, but Gordon’s the catalyst
Scott hasn't even changed into civvies yet. He should probably. But there's something about the uniform that keeps him stabilized. It's the uniform and what it means and the "thanks for your service!" that keep people from seeing right through him, keep them from noticing instead the bags under his eyes, and that, if he had the energy to change into clothes that match how he feels, he would shatter into a million pieces.
He's been running on fumes, almost 56 hours from the first phone call, through whatever strings his father had to pull to get him temporary shore leave, and finally landing on terra firma again. It was as if the world jeered, flinging Scott along with him the second Gordon Tracy was thrown into the sea at speeds the human body could not withstand. Except Scott had not yet hit the water and Gordon had.
Hell, Gordon had.
And it's Virgil standing there nervously, drained in front of him, trying to appear stronger than he felt, that sends Scott the last bit over into the water.
Oh, God. Gordo. 400 f*cking knots.
His head spins with memories of chaos energy, and he sees a mop of strawberry blond choosing his own clothes for the first time, running to him with mis-matched socks and a wicked grin; the summer vacation Gordon spent finding the best shells because he wanted Scotty to see how cool they were and how much he knew about them; the second before the Olympic scoreboard revealed 1st place and Gordon's tears of joy as he stood on the podium proudly, whispering along with the national anthem.
From Firefly’s Glow - Chapter 1
Gordon had learned to appreciate all of Earth's life at a young age. He was never a rescue scout like Scott, as there was a bit too much focus on badgework for his tastes, but his youth was spent making mud pies, watching bird's nests, and observing caterpillar chrysalises all the same.
The summer Gordon was six, Scotty had taken him out to the barn late at night and showed him how to make a lantern of fireflies. Their adventure pack (really Scott's school bag, repurposed) held a flashlight, mason jars, a couple pieces of mesh to put overtop the glass, and two bug nets.
No brothers were allowed – this was for him and Scotty only.
He'd abandoned the bug net for his hands pretty quickly, and within a few minutes, he'd managed to catch five or so for his lightning bug lantern. Of course, Scott had managed to catch more because he was older and also because he'd shared this memory with all his brothers and this was only Gordon's first time.
It had been so pretty, the fireflies dancing in the mason jar, their lights slowly dimming and brightening in a mellow cadence that soothed his soul. But then, he realized their little bodies, which were used to flying around in the expanse of the sky, were suddenly confined to the glass container of the jar. And he saw not beauty but pain.
It was a lovely, bittersweet memory he kept close to his heart because it represented a key moment of his youth: first growing up with Scott as an older brother and also the first time he'd felt a creature's cry reach him. It was the same wail he felt when he read about oil spills off the coast of Alaska and illegal fishing nets that should not still be in use, and, god, the absolute trash humanity left in the oceans for poor sea turtles to choke over.
Scott hadn't understood where the tears came from suddenly, but Gordon remembered his brother kneeling in front of him so their eyesight was level, and he recalled him asking what happened and what Gordon needed, completely uncaring that his jeans were getting dirty in the fertilized soil. And the best thing about Scott was that he was the type of older brother that didn't laugh or ignore him when Gordon said "they want out" through blubbering tears. He just helped Gordon release their fireflies back into the night, and instead they spent their evening counting their happy flickering until the numbers lulled Gordon to sleep.
Wee Scott & Gordon

As @gumnut-logic has declared today Military Bros day (to my absolute delight!), and I’m a major creator for Military Bros stuff, I figured I might as well make a nice masterpost of all my Scott&Gordon content. There’s a lot, and maybe someone might find something new in here that they haven’t seen before?
Alphabetical order is normally my go-to, but as I’m just running through my blog and picking things out, this time they’re in chronological order, starting with the oldest!
Wax and Feathers - Sometimes limits need to be broken. But a limit is there for a reason, and breaking them has consequences.
I Just Can’t Wait To Be Free - When Scott gets stuck, Gordon’s the only one around - too bad he can’t stop laughing.
Toffee - Gordon is a lover of many things. Toffee is not one of them. (note: still ongoing, starts Gordon&John)
Give Up The Fight - Just a short angsty dead-end piece. Warning for implied MCD
SensorySunday - all my SensorySunday fics have some Scott&Gordon in, although some more than others. I’m not listing them individually because all the bros get their time with Scott in these.
Human - Scott needs to stop taking his helmet off first chance he gets - one day, his luck will run out. Warning for PTSD
Long Way From Home - His brothers are missing. In their place is a family of strangers, the only explanation that makes any sense is beyond comprehension, and the only solution is impossible. Scott Tracy’s never been so far from home. (note: still ongoing, has several family interactions but Scott&TOS!Gordon is the most extensive so far)
WIP #47 - Unfinished fic with lots of Gordon, and Scott!whump
WIP #59/Sticks and Stones - Unfinished fic with Scott whump and angst, and Gordon decided to get involved.
Words Not Said (But Still Heard) - Gordon didn’t remember much about his time in the hospital, but he remembered the song.
Snap - There was a whole mountain of paperwork, but a certain annoying younger brother refused to leave him in peace long enough for him to get it done.
Night Out / Morning After - Gordon learnt two things that night: Scott was an affectionate drunk, and sometimes people throw bar stools for no good reason.
Night Out [Art]
Is-Is That My Blood? - From a prompt of the same name. (note: Gordon doesn’t appear in person in this section, but he will in future)
In Your Shadow - “Tomorrow, they’re not gonna say ‘that’s Gordon Tracy, the Olympic Champion!’ Tomorrow, they’re gonna say ‘that’s Scott Tracy’s little brother!’, and I’m gonna say ‘damn straight I am.’” (Tippy did a podfic!)
Are You Going To Let Go? [ART&FIC] - Gordon’s found a de-aged Scott and he’s not letting go.
To Protect - “Get out of the way,” before I murder you.
Teen Tracys - Scott’s teenage brothers are a nightmare (note: not just Scott&Gordon)
Refrigerator - "You've gone to the bathroom fifty times today" and "Is it just me or is it cold as hell in here?".
End of Blue - Thunderbird One’s dead in the water. Scott Tracy isn’t responding. Rescues never feel the same when it’s one of their own they have to save. (note: not finished yet)
Some Things Never Change - de-aged!Scott “Goddamn it, kid, don’t you ever listen? Stay still, let me stop the bleeding, okay?”
Sleep - Some sleepy!Scott Military Bros fluff
Small Things - When an injury leaves Scott unable to do even the most simple things for himself and accordingly frustrated, it takes a brother who understands what it’s like to halt the slippery slope.
Exposed to the Elements - “Fever and Abandoned Building"
A Step Too Far - “Unconscious and Stairs”
Last Straw - “You were almost dead from pushing it too far!”
Bloodbath - Everything was red. (note: ventfic, heed the tags. Nutty wrote a part 2)
Help Me (Keep My Head Above Water) - The water is no place for a man who thrives in the skies. Luckily, he has a brother who’s the opposite. Marks&Wings AU
Too Many Feathers [ART] - Accompanies Help Me. Gordon is an orca (and Virgil’s there, too)
Escape - An island vacation turns into a nightmare, and it’s going to take Gordon everything he’s got, and then some, to get himself and his injured brother to safety. (note: still unfinished)
Sword and Shield - The relationship between his brothers was complex.
Stitches and Movies - “Bandaging the other’s hand and not quite letting go”
Human Shield - “Shielding the other with their body”
Crafty Little Brothers - “Giving them a piggy-back ride” (note: also contains a lot of Alan)
Water Rescue - “Can we stop for a moment? I think I need a break”
Bad Days - “Seventy two times in a minute” and “Xanax and tears”. Warning for PTSD
[Unnamed] - Pen&Ink drama involving Scott (note: very incomplete wip)
Master of Strategy - “You deserve everything you got”
Thank You - “Things you said under the stars and in the grass/that made me feel like shit/I wish you hadn’t”
Childish Mannerisms - “Ow...ow...ow... NO I’M NOT BEING A BABY. I’ve been impaled!”
Dawn Fever - Normally, two brothers are up at dawn. Today, there’s only one.
Homework Mishap - "Don't worry, I'm just checking your pulse." and “That’s not how you use a stethoscope (note: contains a lot of John)
Restless - “Can I sleep with you in here tonight?”
(It’s the) Middle of the Night - When he woke, it was dark. But he wasn’t alone.

So Much Of What The CIA Used To Do Covertly It Now Does Overtly
In the later years of an abusive relationship I was in, my abuser had become so confident in how mentally caged he had me that he’d start overtly telling me what he is and what he was doing. He flat-out told me he was a sociopath and a manipulator, trusting that I was so submitted to his will by that point that I’d gaslight myself into reframing those statements in a sympathetic light. Toward the…
