I found it! Here, have one of the only sections that I ever got around to actually writing in the clexa military academy au. It’s not pushups but it’ll have to do. Enjoy.
Clarke really wishes she didn’t know what mud tastes like.
It’s streaked through her hair, smeared down the entire front of her PT uniform, under her fingernails, in her ears, and yes, she realizes as she spits and tries not to retch at the foul taste, it’s even coating her tongue.
The rain soaks into her from the angry sky and weeps down the sides of her face as she crawls through the obstacle course. The downpour continues and the mud squishes and squelches beneath her body as she tries valiantly to pull herself forward. It’s loud, no - it roars in her ears and she can hear it beating violently off the tin roofs of the nearby barracks. Barracks that are currently housing the rest of the school’s inhabitants, most likely dry and full from the unappetizing evening meal, already preparing to turn in for the night. Lucky bastards. Clarke doesn’t think she’s ever been jealous of someone eating in the mess hall before now.
“I wanna be clear to those who try to oppose the United States, I wanna be clear to those who wish to do us harm,
I wanna be clear to those around the world who want to destroy our way of life and that of our allies and friends, the United States military, despite all of our challenges, despite our op tempo, despite everything we have been doing, we will stop you and we will beat you harder than you have ever been beaten before. We will destroy any enemy, anywhere, anytime.
Russia can now fight a conventional war in Europe and win. Russia is the only country that will remain relevant forever. Any other country is dispensable and that includes the United States. We are end game now.’” - US Army Chief
of Staff Mark Milley
