Summary: A challenge drabble for the LJ community, Stargate 100. The challenge was to write a drabble of a random airman's point of view of any SGC event from any season.
I was nervous as I stood on gateroom duty. This assignment was an honor, but many in the ranks regarded it as akin to being a red shirt on the original Trek.
Today, General Hammond, Major Carter, and Teal'C were waiting for the arrival of the Tok'ra. The door to the gateroom opened, and Colonel O'Neill and Dr. Jackson arrived together.
The funny thing was that they were both still working on getting dressed, Colonel O'Neill with his boots and Dr. Jackson with his shirt. I smiled to myself. Guess there was more truth to those rumors than I thought.
