Betae: [personal profile] auburn , so awesome, so patient, so generous—has my gratitude beyond measure; [livejournal.com profile] imkalena , who gave wonderful advice and fabulous critique—even though she broke me for a while, the story is much better for every bit of her advice I managed to follow; [personal profile] rhi , Highlander beta extraordinaire, and my biggest cheerleader throughout the several years I spent giving birth to this fic—in great part, she's responsible for this thing seeing the light of day (I totally blame her!); and [personal profile] sealie, who looked it over after everyone else, and found clangers everyone else had missed—thanks, Babe!
Rating:  Adult
Fandom(s):  This is a Hawaii Five-0/Highlander crossover, originally written for the Hawaii Five-0 Big Bang, [livejournal.com profile] fiveobang . There are cameo appearances from characters in a third, unrelated fandom (you'll know 'em when you see 'em)
Pairing:  Steve McGarrett/Danny Williams (minor Duncan/Methos)
Spoilers: Hawaii Five-0: I started writing this thing during Hawaii Five-0's Season One, OMG! This story takes place sometime after Loa Aloha and diverges from there.
Highlander (the Series): The Highlander characters diverge from the end of Season Five, with MacLeod still living in Paris. (Although this story takes place modern-day, and it's probably past time Mac thought about moving on...) There was never a demon, and Richie is still alive. Neither of the two ridiculous post-series movies ever happened, and Connor is still alive too. Nyah nyah, this is fanfiction, so there, PTB!
Warnings:  Highlander- (and H50-)level violence, drugged lack of volition
Disclaimer:   Hawaii Five-0 and Highlander are both the sole property of their respective creators. I am making no money from this and no infringement is intended.
Author's Note: This is both a crossover, and an AU, since I diverged from the timelines of both shows. For those who are unfamiliar with either show, please see the Hawaii Five-0 overview and the Highlander overview.

My fabulous partner in[livejournal.com profile] fiveobang, [livejournal.com profile] galadriel34, has posted her artwork here. Please go admire and give her the adoration she deserves!

Summary: An international terrorist, with an unusual interest in volcanoes, has come to Hawai'i. Immortal FBI Agent Matthew McCormick is on his trail and seeks the help of the Five-0 team—then things get really explosive!

Steve and Danny sure picked a bad time to decide that their flirting might mean something more. And what's with that funny new tattoo on Chin's wrist?

Well I suppose it's less accurate to say that I am not into slash and more accurate to say that I am not a shipper for the two slash couples presented in this fic. That's not to say I actively object, I just tend to be a canon shipper in general.

Having said that, I will read any well written fic with any ship in it period. I will always have my fav ships, that I will love and hold dear but I do not believe that having a ship in a fic that I don't ship automatically makes that fic bad. In fact one of the things I love about really well written in character fic is that it can show me ways things could go another way for two characters. One of the things I liked about this fic is Danny and Steve where still in character - you didn't have to radically alter their personalities to slash them. ( I can speak less to Methos and Duncan, simply because they were in the fic less). I am not going to lie though, I think my favorite canons in this where Matt in general and just watching Kono trying to figure things out.

And if I am going to be frank this fic came with a very high rec from someone I trust while it was a WIP so I was willing to give it a try. I am thoroughly glad I did.
