First just let me say that I like this story and the series it belongs to. That being a given I think its interesting how people interpret the story.
I know a lot of people think that Steve was somewhat uncaring in this one but I am actually the opposite. I think that Danny and the others were actually out of line and uncaring. I mean think about it, your closest friend has a complete personality change and you work in a high stress environment. In their argument Steve asks multiple times whats the matter and that Danny can talk to him about it but Danny denies anythings wrong. Steve also expresses that he is worried about Danny getting hurt and not acting like himself before ever questioning if he has his back. Steve also has to balance the roll of being a friend and a boss. Its not only his back that Danny covers, its the teams. So the whole I need to know if you have my back and have your head on straight thing is legitimate. Add this to the fact that Steve is a SEAL and sudden personality changes mean bad things happen to everyone involved and yeah, Steve's concerns make sense.
This is also not taking into account that no one, not Danny or Kono have even discussed or made allowances for the fact that Steve has a) never been with a man/interested in a man prior to this, b) that even reading the signs of like and flirting between the two that Steve would have to come to terms with the fact he likes a guy, c) years of being in an environment where being gay was a big no no, d) that he is obviously not one to deal with emotions in a open manner or easily manner and often puts his foot in his mouth or e) the complications of being a boss and being in a relationship with someone under you. Not to mention he would be terrified to mess up what he already has with Danny.
I also think that the silent treatment that Steve receives is unfair as are the comments about him going to play with the military barbie. They just expect that their master wooing plan will go off without a hitch and Steve won't have issues to deal with. Hes a military man with no previous inclinations that he was interested in playing for both teams, thats a lot to deal with let alone on top of you best friend/partner is in love with you, and now your team is mad at you because you didn't just accept this huge revelation without missing a beat. That's a lot for anyone to be blindsided with let alone a emotionally constipated SEAL with a list of issues a mile long.

I really dont like that Danny is guilt because of the fight, Steve could have go and ambush Danny to apologize but no he just is sulking and thinking of himself and how to fix things without thinking why danny was so sad, and now he wants a relationship with danny without thinking how danny will feel, in this story Steve is so other than that the story is awesome, and I loved it.

I loved this story. I'm glad that I started getting community alerts and with it the link to your story. While the formula for almost every McDanno story is they both love each other but afraid to admit it . There's usually some misunderstanding then one finally admits their feelings (but mostly not before one gets hurt) and it works out. What I loved a out your story was the twisted words and feelings that came out of Steve wrong about not trusting Danny to have his back! Could the boot in his mouth been any bigger! And the "how did it get from jealous of the surfer guy to holding his hand in the hospital? And Grace's talk. Starting your sequel next. You made my weekend. Thx!

This was an absolutely lovely ending! The McDanno conversation was well done, especially their bantering about Danny's inability to stay quiet. But good for Steve for realizing that he wants to be with Danny and for finally admitting to being in love with him :)

Oh thank God, they finally get it and love each other. Wow what a kiss. Bet it could beat the Prince's Bride kiss any time.

I am so impressed of the way Steve handled this situation. He was collected, which I'm sure would be hard considering he would be the total opposite of calm.
And he put it all out there for Danny to decide their fate which after all Danny's been through is the best thing to do.
Oh, Danny. Grace will always be a Williams unless you change her DNA.
