Just an Ordinary Day

Work Text:

A couple of other people in Darcy's hall are chattering about how much their internships sucked/rocked, and how much menial labor/cool shit they did, and it's sort of turned into some sort of employment-related Never Have I Ever thing by the time Alex turns to Darcy and says, "You're awfully quiet, Darce--nothing happened to you, really?"

Darcy thinks about it, everything looping around in her brain in technicolor, filling her up with this bubbly gleeful feeling of I did Important Things and it's classified, this is amazing, I'm amazing, also I damn well tasered a Norse God, what the hell! "Oh, you know," she says, feeling the grin that's not quite on her face settle somewhere warm and radiant inside her, "lots of equations, no big deal."
