Finding the Path is a Steve/Danny story by esteefee.

Summary: Prof. Danny Williams is Deputy Director at the Foundation for Sensory Research, where Lt. Commander Steve McGarrett has just been admitted with Acute Hyperactive Sensory Syndrome. Sometimes by helping someone else, we find our own way.

Summary Slash World: "Danny quit being a cop when his daughter was diagnosed with Acute Hyperactive Sensory Syndrome and went back to school, determined to figure out how to let Grace, and all the other kids with the same problem, live something like a normal life. Now he directs a research institution dedicated to just that. Their new patient is an adult onset HSS sufferer (which isn’t supposed to happen) and Danny decides this guy may be the key to figuring out how to help all the Sentinels."[1]

Recs and Reviews

Why You Should Read This: This is an unusual take on the Sentinel meme. Sentinels are known, but no one knows how to help them. Since Sandberg’s PHD thesis was repudiated, no one realizes that he had found the key. But Danny is determined to find an answer because his daughter, and all the other little sentinels, are suffering, kept isolated, most their time zoned out or drifting. The tone is perfect. Danny is a little more subdued than canon, but that is understandable. The OC’s are great. Steve is adorable. I really enjoyed this one.[1]

I love this Sentinel fusion because of the way it’s more grounded in more in a medical mystery.[2]
