Subtle is Not in Danny's Vocabulary  
Inspired by kahuna_burger at this post In-universe Steve/Danny RPF?

Written for 1_million_words flash fic challenge over here===>


Danny walked into Kono's office with some trepidation. She and Catherine had been giggling over Kono's computer for at least half an hour.

"Okay. I just got to know," he said. "What are you looking at?"

That brought new gales of laughter and an exchange of glances.

"Should we tell him?" Kono asked. "Put him out of his misery?"

"It will only add to his misery," Catherine said.

"What? You are both making me miserable," Danny said, trying for stern. Sometimes the tone worked on Grace. Sometimes.

"We are reading H50 RPF slash fanfic," Kono finally said.

"Well. That's clear as mud," Danny said. "Care to translate into something close to English?"

"Fan fiction. About us. Well, mostly you and Steve."

"Fan fiction," Danny repeated. "Uhm... RPF? Slash?"

"Real person fiction," Kono explained. "The slash means you and Steve get it on. A lot. In lots of different places and ways. With me and Chin. Or me and Catherine. Or me and Chin and Catherine."

"Wait. Wait," Danny said, holding up both hands. "You're telling me that there are people who write and publish stories about me and Steve having sex???"

"Yep," Kono agreed far too happily.

"Steve! Steven J. McGarrett. Front and Center. NOW."

"No need to shout, Danno. I'm right here," Steve said as he sauntered up. "What is the emergency?"

"H50 RPF slash fanfic is the emergency," Danny informed him. "There are people out there speculating about our love lives. Not that there is any,” he added hastily.

Oh as if,” Kono scoffed. “You don’t know subtle, Danno.”

“Nope,” Catherine agreed.

“Why aren’t you upset about this?” Danny demanded, turning to Steve who was smiling placidly down at him. “Why aren’t you outraged?”

“First, you are outraged enough for everyone in the room. And second, we have the First Amendment that says they can say what they want.”

“Within reason,” Danny said. “This is not within reason.”

“Yeah, I think it is,” Catherine said. “It’s clearly marked fiction. Covered as free speech.”

“And third,” Steve said holding up three fingers. “I already knew it existed.”

“What?” Danny asked. “What? You knew? How? How did you know?”

“Mary told him,” Steve said with a casual shrug. “She thinks it’s hysterical.”

Danny momentarily had the look of a goldfish as his mouth opened and closed, opened and closed. Finally he just turned around and went back to his office. If only it had a wooden door so he could have slammed it behind him.

Thanks for the lovely comment on my layout. I needed something a little calmer. I do hope, though, that I'll have another inspirational header like the last one. Alex was quite nice to look at. :-)

Thanks, BB!

Haha I need more of this!

Danny's outraged enough for A LOT of people!

His outrage does take up for a lot of people, doesn't it! :-)

I'll try for more. But I can't make any promises. 'Cause I know if I do promise, I'll break it!

Thanks a bunch, BB!

I don't think you can break it, but if you can come up with more, like Doris finding the fic, that would be great...

ROTFL - I love this!!

Love, love this line:

First, you are outraged enough for everyone in the room

That is so Danny and of course Steve would be pointing it out to him.

Danny does "outraged" better than anyone else, doesn't he?

Thanks BB!!!
