Danny Mahealani/Stiles Stilinski is the non-canonical M/M slash pairing of Danny Mahealani and Stiles Stilinski on the television show Teen Wolf. Its portmanteau name is Stanny.


On the show, Danny is an out gay lacrosse player; he and Stiles are shown as friendly but not close friends. They have two shippy moments: Stiles asks Danny if he (Stiles) is attractive to gay guys during season 1, and during season 3 when Stiles is freaking out because he's a virgin and virgins are being killed, he says "Somebody needs to sex me right now" in the locker room, and Danny jokingly responds "All right, I'll do it."


Danny/Stiles is one of the more common non-Derek/Stiles pairings in the Teen Wolf fandom,[1] but it still rare overall.
