I read a fic of SG-1 in which John was a professional thief with two Ph.Ds. Long story short he infiltrated SGC in order to steal information for Ba'al; he was indeed a brilliant mathematician who could correct/improve/assist Rodney's works.
So I am looking for any fic in which John was one of the brightest minds on earth, prefered if he got one (or some) Ph.D(s).
If he was a veteran from Navy/Marine/USAF/etc, and then some
it would be spectacular.
It can be reversed as someone underappreciate him and his BAMF!soldier-self because of his appearance as a academic.
In a nutshell: John is a lot
more than what he shows.
I will appreciate anything from canon divergence, canon AU, AU, but I preferred McShep, and yes I can read gen or other pairings if they are slash involved John. The average length of my favourite fic is around 120k word but I can read basically anything you give me from 5000 words to 500.000 words (I barely read any fanfic under 1000 words)Typical example:
Thief!John: No Good Deed
Keira Marcos' stories (Ties that Binds, The Sentinel of Atlantis, etc)Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves
by auburn (McShep)Divergent Paths: Glimpses of the Future
by puddleofgoo (McShep)Man on the Ground
by Brumeier (McShep)
I know the titile seems ridiculous but I am really in the mood for badass John, and even better if he is BAMF, but someone (or everyone) underappreciated him.
