Drabble: SNAFU [gen]

Title: SNAFU
Characters: Holmes, Watson, Murray
Length: 100 words
Alternate Link: AO3
Author's Notes: Written for the watsons_woes July Writing Prompt #9: Acronyms. Unbeta'd.
Summary: This promised to be far more diverting than the water samples.

Sherlock's investigation into the varying contaminant levels of water from collection points along the Thames was interrupted when John abruptly stood up from his laptop.

"Problem?" Sherlock asked.

"No," John answered briskly. Far from his usual lazy Sunday morning routine, John jogged upstairs to his bedroom, came back down to retrieve his jacket, and then left the flat.

In under a minute Sherlock was viewing John's blog.

Commenting On
TPTBFU.  Moran's been RTU'd. They called me to testify, but you're the only one who can nail him on that friendly-fire incident. Watch your back.
