Connor was panicking when Stephen found him.

“I’ve lost my essay. This is what I get for finishing it early and handing it in before the deadline!”

Stephen rolled his eyes.

“Okay, where did you last have it?”

“I gave it to Cutter.”

“Where?”

“In here!”

Stephen looked around at Cutter’s office. At the stacks of books and journals in precarious piles that seemed to defy the laws of gravity. At the miscellaneous sheets of paper that had been accumulating on every surface for so long they could probably be carbon dated.

He patted Connor’s shoulder.

“Sorry mate. It’s lost.”

LOL! Oh dear! Never give an essay to an academic - I could have told him that! *g*

Given that Cutter's reaction to Connor's first disertation was to throw it in the bin, the essay could be anywhere!

LOL! Oh dear, poor Connor! (Always a mistake to hand-write anything, or do anything before the last minute! :-D)

I think his first mistake was leaving it anywhere in the vicinity of Cutter's office!

LOL. Carbon dated is right! Well, at least he had handed it in, so I guess now it's Nick's problem to find it (which he will promptly delegate to Stephen...)

True, it is now Cutter's problem. So yeah, Stephen had better start looking for it!

LOL! Poor Connor- Stephen's right, they'll never find it in Nick's bombsite of an office.

It does look like the kind of room where long lost paperwork goes to die.

LOL, Connor should know better ;)

He really should! Knowing Cutter, it might well be in the bin by now!

LOL! That's one essay with the Dead Sea Scrolls and Shergar!

Yep, I think Connor should just admit defeat and print out a second copy of that one...

Oh dear! Poor Connor.

He should know better than to leave anything in Cutter's office - especially when Stephen isn't around to keep track of things!

Ooops!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: February 22nd, 2012 09:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yep, that about covers it.
