In my experience, first days of new jobs are exhausting, even if one doesn't outwardly seem to do much. Paying attention and trying to learn a thousand things at once takes a lot of energy!

I think I have a good handle on, let's say, thirty percent of what I will be doing; a rough handle on another fifty percent; and as for the remaining twenty percent, I at least know enough to be aware of what I don't know and still need to learn. I wouldn't want to be left alone for another couple shifts, but the tasks themselves are straightforward (aside from, you know, the inherent messiness of dealing with humans) so they shouldn't take too long to get down. And there are a bunch of cheat sheets around the front office... actually, possibly more cheat sheets than is strictly helpful, because I'm not sure I remember where all of them are. *wry*

I also need to get a set of keys to the building. I must remember to ask about that tomorrow.

Summary: Some days, Earth still seems like a children's tale to Vala. (350 words)

Note: This ficlet was written for [tumblr.com profile] kk-maker as part of a three-sentence meme, in response to the prompt: Teal'c, or Vala Mal Doran. It is rather more than three sentences. Oops? (Also, everything I know about Stargate: SG-1 is secondhand, so please forgive any glaring canon errors.) [Tumblr crosspost]

[ETA: The AO3 crosspost is now up!]

The title is a random phrase from Tolkien's essay On Fairy-stories, which is a work I recommend to anyone interested in writing fantasy. One may not agree with all his points, but I think one should at least be aware of his questions.

FYI, I'm doing a three-sentence prompt meme over on Tumblr tonight. Give me the name of a character or pairing and I'll write a three-sentence fic about them.

Prompts can be left either in my Tumblr askbox or in a comment to this post. :-)

(Disclaimer: I reserve the right to refuse prompts for fandoms I don't know well enough to write. Fills may not be exactly three sentences.)

Because I love Jareth, but he is a deeply ridiculous person. *grin*
