Catching up only reading, and very glad I found this! Always wondered why Steve wouldn't let Danny sign, and this seems wonderfully plausible. Liked this episode, but was disappointed the writers didn't do more with the h/c angle, so I'm thankful for your followup!

Loved your reason why Danny couldn't sign the cast! I could so see that happening! :) Thanks for the read!

That was great...perfect Danny characterization...I could picture him perfectly in my mind. Love his doting on Steve...great camaraderie.

You've got their relationship down to a tee, just like Gibbs and Tony. Great job on this and I'm looking forward to more of your Five O stories and NCIS stories. You are a true talent and thanks for sharing!

This was a great story! Thank you for sharing it. Any more stories already written that you are sitting on? If so, get them back out!

I love how you explore their friendship and write missing scenes. In the show it almost seems as if Steve didn't have any pain at all during the whole show. That was just a little bit wrong.

Fun and well written.

I really liked this. Sorry I am so slow getting to other author's works. Well done my friend, you caught Steve and Danny and their inability to say they care to each other so well. Glad Danny filled that prescription for Steve, I think the guy is going to need it.

Oh I have to hand it to you, you really are the best. This again is such a great story; I just love your writing-style.
And again a perfect example for a story written in first person, you have such a talent for it. Not many can do it like that.
I completely loved how you described Steve’s day after the fall; his thoughts are so spot on. Your description of his miserable first night was wonderful; I could picture him acting just like that. Perfect. No matter how tough you are a broken bone does really hurt the first few days, so Steve would be really uncomfortable for a few days.
I always thought that he got away from that fall way too easy, so your little venture into his discomfort from it was just right for my little heart.
I was wondering about why he didn’t want to let Danny sign his cast and came up with that he would be worried about what he would write. But your solution is really great. To pick on the wounded guy really is kind of low, so it is just fair that Steve wanted some kind of payback.
About your timeline, I think you were in perfect synch with the show but I think that the show got it wrong. LOL
No seriously, we now know that their hiking trip was on a Thursday, because Steve told Danny that he got another envelope the day before. Since we know that he received them on Wednesdays, so it means they were hiking on Thursday. They spent the whole day or from at least from around late morning (I mean they needed to get back with the medevac and all) to investigate. At night they were at Rutherford. All fine and good, but from there on they screwed it up. They said that Kono and Chin’s Aunt won’t live through the night, so it means that she probably died that night. Which means they were notified the next day at the Hilton. But there is no way that the body of the victim would have been processed by the crime lab, released to the family and cremated in less than twenty four hours. That is just ridiculous. Not even to speak that they would not get the young Rutherford back that quick. So my guess is that they are at the Hilton the next Friday. But hey maybe I’m totally wrong about it, but at least it was the second thing I laughed about in the episode. The first one you ask? Well it seemed to me that Danny took the scenic route back to Steve on that ledge, because he got just back when the army evac arrived WITH Chin on board. Anyone care to tell me how the heck he got on that chopper? Did they stop at HQ to pick him up? Yeah right.
Anyway, I loved this story and just can’t wait to read more of your great stuff!

YEAH! A new fic!
LOL! When Kamekona told him about signing the cast I was thinking he was going to say something along the lines of “Hey brah, you know how all the babes are always checking you out. Now they’ll know where to get the best shaved ice.”
I didn’t understand the shoots reference. That must be something they’ve said on the show that I haven’t picked up on yet.
This revenge plot of Steve’s gives even more meaning to that evil look he gave him when he had Danny check the fish at Morimoto’s. LOL!
A good buddy story and an enjoyable fic. Thank you!

Great fill-in for this episode! Love the little exchanges with the guys! Thanks for sharing!
| Nilah chapter 1 . 6/21/2011
Liked it. Short and sweet, and a good attempt at explaining why.

Great story! I can't ge enough stories about that wonderful episode!
We could see how much Danny was worried about Steve, when he took his fall of course but also when they went to Rutherford's house and Steve took his sling off. You could see he was unconfortable and in pain.
It's a good idea as to why Steve didn't want Danny to sign his cast, lolll.
