Recs and Reviews
This is a post S2 finale fic, speculating on the fall out of Steve’s return. It doesn’t include that final little scene at the end with Steve going back to Japan. It’s a McDanno story and is mostly focused on Danny’s feelings about Steve being an idiot and trying to get himself killed. I waffled on recing it, not because it’s not good but because I’m not a fan of the ~relationship part of the story. That being said, I am still going to rec it because the writing is so so good. It’s a story that actually includes the bad parts of being in love with someone, the part where you have to accept who they are if you want to stay with them. This is one of the best fics I’ve ever read for that. Another thing I really liked about this fic is the style in which it was written. It starts at a little past the 24hr mark after Steve returned to Hawaii and then goes back and tells the story from Danny’s POV. It’s really well done, slightly non-linear, storytelling, which if you read my rec lists then you know that’s one of my all time favourite literary devices.
