Author's Summary

No one would ever send Sherlock in to defuse a stand-off; but on one unlikely day, that’s exactly what happened.

Comments

This is a complete fic but it reads like the beginning to a fabulous, epic-length story and from how it’s categorized – part 1 in a nonexistent series. It’s fabulous and John shines through very well. This is another really unique one, on the edge of an AU.

Characterization

Spot On – It’s impressive how well Pengke depicts John here, given how much she limited his dialogue/self-expression. Sherlock is perfect from the moment he strides into the scene.

Pacing

Slow

Tone

Hopeful
