Rec: The Vertical Challenge by AlamoGirl80

Hawaii Five 0- McDanno BannerTitle: The Vertical Challenge
Author: AlamoGirl80
Canon: Hawaii Five-0
Pairing: Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams
Rating: Mature [R]
Word Count: 20,019
Summary: Five times Danny thinks about his height, and then realizes that being “not-tall” doesn’t really suck at all.

Recommendation: It’s not easy being a short man, it’s a sad fact but very true. Danny is just so much attitude it’s difficult to really think of him as short. And Steve certainly doesn’t mind. (And neither do I, husband’s short [and blond] too.)

Summary: “Ten known vics, four in the past eight days,” Kono said, pulling up the file details. “Whoever this is,” she looked up from the panel, “they’re not slowing down.”

Recommendation: Undercover to catch bad guys and look married; so just like any other day, right. Perhaps more sexytimes then usual.

Pairing: Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams
Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 5,500+
Summary: An answer to this prompt: A consultant has been commissioned by various law enforcement agencies to do some research into the mechanisms of partnership and what makes an effective command team. When this consultant comes to Hawaii, the governor forces Steve to have this person around for a couple of weeks as an observer. When the report/book comes out, there are a number of partnership/management styles outlined in it, with descriptions on the degrees of success. Steve and Danny’s style is called something along the lines of *the Married style*. Sometimes, it takes fresh eyes to see what’s right in front of you.

Recommendation: It’s all fun and games until Danny realizes it’s totally true. And then it’s awesome. I just love it when Danny just plays along with this stuff, he gets a bit caustic when he doesn’t.

Rec: Lost at the Edge of the Sun by james

Restricted Access BannerPodfic Available BannerHawaii Five 0- McDanno BannerTitle: Lost at the Edge of the Sun
Author: james
Canon: Hawaii Five-0
Pairing: Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams
Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 24,477
Summary: Living in Hawai’i is expensive, especially when you’re still paying a mortgage on a house back in Jersey. When things get to be too much, Danny has to make a hard decision. The hardest part is keeping the rest of the team from finding out that he’s homeless.

Recommendation: So usually I look to H50 stories for light-hearted or actiony stories, but this one, while not really angsty, is a more poignant and thoughtful offering. It illustrates so well that very often people who find themselves homeless are actually employed, but are in difficult circumstances anyway. {Only available for AO3 users; Podfic available, unrestricted}

Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 9,688
Summary: It felt wrong for Steve to sound unsure of his place in Danny’s life. His place in Danny’s life was at Danny’s side, driving him slowly insane. Steve should feel secure about that.

Recommendation: I’m just endlessly delighted with Danny’s names for Steve’s faces, and Steve’s wooing by attrition. The term ‘stealth-marrying’, just dies. {Podfic available}

Rating: Teen [PG]

Summary: “What, are you assholes not only idiots who beat up innocent women, you’re homophobic now too? Fuck it, I’ll make sure all your pals in prison hear how you got arrested by gay cops. It’ll be a great bedtime story.”

Recommendation: I love the ‘everyone can see it except the narrator/point of view character’ trope and this is a hilarious example.
