Summary: How do you handle a threat against your partner when you're juggling work and a new relationshihp?
Notes: First off, this is for the awesome celli, who bought me in the help_japan auction and requested a crossover between Hawaii Five-0 and Profiler. I will forever be grateful, because it reminded me how much I loved that show and those two, and inspired me to rewatch some episodes, and it was so much fun to write.
If you're not familiar, Profiler was a show on NBC from 1996 - 2001, a show that celli TOTALLY hooked me on (I had no intention of watching it until she said the magic words "Julian Mcmahon"). It starred Ally Walker as Samantha "Sam" Waters, a Profiler being tormented by a serial killer who killed her husband, among many other people, Julian McMahon as John Grant, a cop who became an agent working on the Violent Crimes Task Force (VCTF), and some other people. Okay, so the other people were good, but Sam and John were the important ones! Oh, there was also George (played by Peter Frechette), who was their computer guru, and resident guy with a live-in-boyfriend, which was, let's face it, kind of risque for an NBC drama in 1996!
If you are familiar, then you need to know I messed with the timeline of Profiler - I set the events of the show around 2003-2005, kept the older Chloe, and kept Sam with the VCTF.
Also, this story is a sequel of sorts to Hit the Ground Running, but you don't necessarily have to have read it to read this one, I don't think. It refers back to things that happened in the story, but gives enough context to follow. However, if you wanted to know what happened to Steve and Danny after Hit the Ground Running, here you go! :)
Oh, one more note--I started this in July and barely managed to finish it just in time, because the promo for this Monday's episode made me want to get this posted before it aired. Oh show, get out of my head! :)
I lied, still one more note - HUGE thanks to chelseafrew
for a lightning fast and fabulous beta, and to both her and corilannam
for pushing me to finish the last 1/4 of the story! It would not have gotten done without you guys - thank you!!!( Steve checked his watch as he flipped through the mail on his desk, hoping to get through the pile before Danny arrived. )
