Look, I lied to you about going to the doctor, okay? I didn’t go to the doctor about my liver. I just haven’t been feeling so great, so, they ran some tests last week. (…) And I got a little radiation poisoning from that dirty bomb that we diffused a couple months ago. It’s fine. The pills you’ve seen me taking, that’s a short term thing. It’s gonna knock it out. All right. (..) he says he’s almost 100% sure there’s gonna be some side effects down the road, you know, but, Danny, we’re talking years down the road, not today. I’m fine right now.
Steve has many annoying quirks. Given the smallest opportunity, Danny will elaborate on them at length to anybody who asks - and even to those who don’t if he’s feeling particularly spirited.
The truth is, though, that Steve is as endearing as hell. He’s loveable, loving, a jumbled up mess of vulnerable badass sweetheart, and Danny loves him deeply.
He’s also a complete and total goof in bed. Oh, he’s great in bed - they’re great in bed, thank you very much - but once the show’s over, he turns into a hilarious lump of limbs, pleased as punch to be naked and satisfied. He loves a good snuggle, and, really, Danny is more than happy to oblige.
“You’re a goof,” he says, smiling when Steve draws him in, closer, tighter, warmer. Oh yeah. This is some tip-top snuggling, this is.
“I’m a goof?” Steve harrumphs, stretches out a kink in his back before relaxing back into the mattress. “I’m not the one who told Charlie about my time-outs.”
“Hey! It’s not like I gave him specifics. What do you take me for?”
Danny rolls his eyes. “Still, nothing. I made it sound like I put you in a cardboard box in the corner for 30 minutes, not that I-”
“-strip me naked in 5 seconds flat? Have your wicked way with me? Cunningly use to your advantage the fact that I like a good catnap after sex, and if I’m asleep then I can’t be blowing anything up?”
“Well I don’t see you complaining,” Danny responds, poking a finger into Steve’s side.
Steve captures the finger, lifts it up for a kiss. “Of course not. I love my time-outs.”
