Duel 01; Video

[There aren't any questions about what this place is or what it's like. Utena's already gotten used to all of that. She does, however, have a question about something else that's been on her mind: employment. She flops on her new bed and turns on her device, and the network will see a zoomed in image of her eye before she stretches her arms and raises her communicator, showing her from the shoulders up]

So. The government gives us these jobs when we get here, right? But what do you do when it's something you're not cut out for? Like...

[Okay, recording like this isn't very comfortable after all. She stops and rolls over on her side, and adjusts the camera so it's focusing mostly on her face]

I'm supposed to be a teacher, sort of. Or maybe instructor is a better way to put it? ...anyway, I'm supposed to give fencing lessons now. And it's not that I'm bad at it, but...

[She bites her lip and glances away for a moment, uncertain of how much she should (or how much she even wants to) explain about the duels.]

Well, I'm not really used to "standard" fencing matches. I mean, I've fenced before, but the last time I did the rules were kind of weird, and as soon as I got used to it the game would change again. The only real advice I could give is, "hey, don't get stabbed," but that's not really good advice, is it? I mean, that's what swordfighting is all about, I guess, but...

[She sighs, and flops back on her pillow]

I'm not really sure what I should do about this. I still need to talk to them - the people who run the lessons, not the guys who gave me the job - but... I guess I'm just worried that they'll expect more from me than what I can give them. That they'll expect me to be some master fencer from a movie or storybook or something like that. Has anyone else had to deal with that? With their bosses expecting them to be something they're not, I mean.

Oh, mine expects me to behave myself. I pin this down to how it serves as a nice counter to the activities he indulges himself in out of hours. He's something of a masochist.

Sometimes the jobs fit, sometimes they definitely don't. I'm not sure how they figure it all out.

My advice? Give it a try, if only to make some extra money while you figure out what you really want to do. [squints] Or maybe just go to school? Sorry, I'm not trying to be condescending, but you look pretty young.

Don't sweat it. I'm sure the people that run the place can give you tips. Or some of us can, or whatever. And if it's really not a good fit, you could probably just look for another job, right?

For what it's worth though: if you're this worried about getting it right...You'd probably make a good instructor once you know the ropes.
