In which John is a cuddly, BAMF assassin
Description: “Sherlock learns that a spat of recent killings was done by a professional assassin. A man so feared that the criminal underworld is afraid to whisper his name. Sherlock goes off on his own to track him down, and is captured.
Sherlock braces himself for a cold-blooded killer, with nerves of steel and no remorse, with a reputation for ruthlessness that makes several hardened criminals check their closets before they go to bed - and meets John. Easygoing, good-natured, cuddly jumper-wearing John. Who thinks he’s brilliant and hilarious, and can he take him out for a coffee?
Review: I’ve been seeing this recced a lot and I decided to finally read it and it was really cute! I love the dichotomy of John being an assassin but like, a good assassin. He’s polite and kind and really gentlemanly. I liked how the author downplayed a little on the cases throughout cause it wasn’t the main point of the fic.
