Movement from Ty drew Zane’s eyes, and when he glanced to his side at Ty, a sudden and unexpected thrill ran through him. Ty had come to attention, body taut in a smart salute. His jaw was tight and his eyes were unreadable, staring ahead from the shadow of his white cover. He stood straight and tall, every ounce of him perfect and rigid, the bright colors and harsh white of his uniform in sharp contrast to the washed-out sepia of the day. Zane didn’t think he‟d ever seen anything more incredible and heart-wrenching than Ty right then. The bagpipes played on, a soundtrack to the very picture of self-sacrifice and loyalty.
Zane’s thoughts inexplicably landed on Elias Sanchez, a man he‟d never met, a member of Ty’s Marine Recon team who had also joined the Bureau. Sanchez had died in the line of duty, murdered by a fellow agent turned serial killer. Sanchez would have had a funeral like this, with the honor guard and the gun salute, with men and women in pristine uniforms standing in silent respect for the dead. As Ty stood now. How many times had Ty done this, said goodbye to a fallen comrade in that uniform?
Zane dropped his gaze, giving his partner what modicum of privacy was possible. He didn’t need to continue staring. The sight would be forever burned in his memory. (D &C, page 269)
Oh, don’t be surprised. I knew about you and Sanchez. He found the Baltimore connection, too. He even put a call into his old Recon buddy Ty Grady down in Maryland to ask him about it, but you never answered your phone, did you, Ty? You’ve been wondering what that call was about since you got here, haven’t you? You weren’t there for Sanchez, and you won’t be there for Garrett.”
Ty closed his eyes and lowered his head, pain lancing through his chest at the killer’s accusations. (C&R)
“It wasn’t your fault, you know,” Nick said.
Ty took a deep breath, not surprised that Nick had known exactly what he’d been thinking. “He called me for help,” he whispered. “I didn’t answer it, and two days later he was dead.”
“Ty,” Zane whispered. “Jesus, is that why you always answer your phone?”
Ty nodded curtly. (T&G, page 80)
For those folks who can’t decide between Karl Urban or Alex O’Loughlin for Ty, here they are morphed together.
Shirtless Edition. How ridiculously hot he is?
I reluctantly accept.
Isn’t reluctant acceptance the way you usually roll anyway?
Reason #127189525 why Alex is perfect Ty:
He may not suffer depression, but O’Loughlin has struggled with other issues. As an adult he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). But when I ask how these have affected his life, he grows cagey. Once again I am forced to reassure him, but he eventually answers the question with candour.
“I still have ADD. It’s something I’ve learned to live with. It affects people in different ways. It affected my learning when I was younger and I was never medicated for it. It was something that did make me feel like I was different and apart from everyone, made me feel isolated. Every girlfriend I’ve ever had has had a moment when they’ve gone crazy at me because they’ll say something and, literally, two or three minutes later I’ll respond. People think I’m rude or ignoring them but I’m not at all, I retain everything. It’s just the way my brain chemistry works. I’m actually a really loving, attentive person.”
The OCD, says O’Loughlin, is now mostly a thing of the past. In the calming atmosphere of Hawaii, his childhood days of taking hours to tie his shoes just right are a fading memory. However, he does admit to having occasional obsessive urges. “If I get OCD about something, I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I have to do it.’” He pauses, laughs and adds, “So you’ve just ascertained that I should be imprisoned and medicated.” (source)
Karl will always be my Ty, but Alex and Jensen Ackles have so many Ty-like traits that it’s fun to pick and choose among them. It’s like Frankenstein Ty (I do the same thing with Zane sometimes).
Exactly. I love them all and they are all doing this wonderful dance inside my head….::daydreaming::
I think I’m like the only minion around who doesn’t see Karl Urban as Ty at all. I mean, not even a tiny little bit around the edges. But Alex or Jensen? Hells to the yeah.
My editor just called herself a minion, everyone. Go home. I win.
…that this goofy bastard is 41
And that this even bigger goof is older than him:
I can’t remember which minion suggested double date (Ty/Zane and Nick/Kelly) ….but look at these two! It wouldn’t be a double date, it would be Zane and Nick are taking kids out.
Nick and Zane taking the kids out!!…….. *dying*
Crazy and luck were pretty much the only things Sidewinder would have survived on.
