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.”
Detective Danno Danny Williams - the different shades of being a badass cop
No.1 – Solo Mission (without Steve)
His focus on the target never falters - it’s raw, precise, laser like and deadly. His
instincts as a detective are on high allert at all times. He acts fast, well
organized, and effective. He only cares to protect others, never himself. He
jumps infront of bullets, knives and fists. He is in full warrior-don’t-fucking-mess-with-this-cop mode. He gets beaten up badly - he is so damn brave. He never ducks, he never gives in and oh boy…he can take
punches, but it seems as if he doesn’t feel the pain. He never flinches, he
never caves. He only jokes, he spits and fights even harder – tantalizing his
opponent with every word so the beating gets worse and he takes it all.
Situation 1: Back in New Jersey checking out some drug dealing point, no back-up. Mission goes south, Danny gets
heavily beaten, tortured even, Grace gets shot infront of his eyes. He
fights back waiting for the first slip in the
enemies attention. It’s violance porn seeing Danny fight the way he does
in that scene.It’s an absolute beauty to realize he acts so strong
Situation 2: Prison of Columbia. Danny
knows he enters hell. He doesn’t show fear (meanwhile Steve goes apeship back
home to find a way to safe Danny.) Danny faces all the guns, the evil grins,
the punches. He knows what is waiting for him in there – rape, torture,
beating, excruciating pain every day…and he doesn’t give a fuck. He manages to get a phone call to hear Grace’s voice one last time. He gets this piece of heaven,
devours it for eternity and waits for his death afterwards laying on floor
being kicked and punched, till he passes out.
Situation 3: Hostage situation at Grace’s dance night. Danny fights with every
fibre of his body. He crawls in confinded spaces, stands
oncoming panic feelings, attacks a guy with bare hands, is ready to deal with a
whole bunch of armed perps, does whatever it takes to free Grace and all
others. Danny only deflates visibly when he finally spots Steve in the crowed
after all bad guys are shot, hurt and booked.
No. 2 – Team McDanno
constantly out because Steve only comes up with the most stupid solutions. Those operations always have the same pattern.
(not my pic, borrowed it from the google search)
DON’T WANNA GO!”
Steve: “DANNY! GO!..I LOVE YOU! NOW
HATE YOU” (he jumps)
Danny: “Can you please stop that? I
want to die in peace.”
“Nobody is going to die today, Danny.”
is no exit, this fucking explosion let the whole building crash. We are trapped.”
“Relax, I will find us a way out.”
Danny: “Leave me alone, there is no
exit. If I hadn’t met you I wouldn’t be down here now.”
Steve: “Take a break, buddy. I’ve got
you. I’ll find a way.”
Danny: Thats’ your plan? Do you know
how rediculous this is? Great, really great, Steven!
will figure it out somehow.
yeah? When exactly? When someone gets to shoot me first? I can’t believe it!
Danny, relax. I got this. We will be fine.
will kill us.”
are still alive.”
will kill us…”
Steve: “Relax Danny, there is always
a way. I’ve got you, just give me time.”
No.3 – The Most Impressive One: Mission rescue Steve
Steve is on a mission - alone. Danny
is worried sick, not showing it though and after 12 hours it is clear, Steve is
missing and Danny’s worst fears came true. Danny knows his boy is in great
danger and in that very moment Danny’s entire being switches into war mode. I
can figuratively see how Danny’s muscles swell, how his shirt gets teared apart,
his body gets pumped up with a heavy dose of adrenalin. His view changes into a tunnel vision, every
fibre of his body has one aim – to get Steve back, alive!
Danny will get back with Steve or he won’t get back at all. All
his ohana is of course with Danny. But Danny is prepared to die. He knows the possibility to never see his
Grace again is huge. He goes anyway. He has to save Steve. He fights with the
columbian army, he deals with SEALS and snatches Steve out of the Taliban’s
hand before they can behead him. Whatever it takes, Danny storms right
through any barricade to get his Steve back.
Steve is safe Danny always has to fight to keep standing on his feet. He waits
at Steve’s side until Steve opens his eyes, ready to see a familiar, a beloved
face. Danny needs to know, Steve is safe and home. Danny takes care of a hurt,
wounded Steve in the most tender way.
such a badass warrior when he has to be it. He is a secret Avenger, I am sure!
Danny is fearless. He is an
outstanding Detective, he grew up on the streets of New Jersey and had to learn
to fight his way through his every day life. He jumps right in the
middle of danger and beats everyone until his work is done.
When he is
with Steve he wants to give Steve the feeling, that he needs him. So Steve can rescue him every single
time. Ranting Danny it is actually a very clever psychological
move to make Mcgarrett be the hero. What ever happends on the scene, Danny puts his
fate in Steve’s hands and Steve always handles it with utmost care. Danny knows
his partner needs this feeling to have the control over the situation and he has Danny’s trust.
Danny loves to behave difficult to see how much Steve cares about him. Steve
really never snaps at Danny. The only thing that could happen is Danny gets
ingored by Steve, completely. Downright left out. Steve doesn’t answer Danny’s
questions, doesn’t react to his ranting. At the end? They always have each other’s back and their everlasting love. (I had to write this last sentence…:-))
