Title: Ko‘eko‘e ka Pō Hoa‘ole (Cold are Nights Without a Companion)
Characters/Pairings: Steve McGarrett, Danny "Danno" Williams; Steve/Danny
Word Count: 26,970
Summary: After a bit of snooping, Danny discovers that Steve wants to celebrate his birthday by climbing Mauna Loa, the world's largest active volcano, because of course he does. Danny agrees to go along for reasons that are mostly inexplicable and surely have nothing to do with Steve's warm, dark eyes or the curve of his smile—but hey, they're only going to be climbing one of the world's most active volcanoes which could erupt at literally any time, where they will be above 40% of the Earth's atmosphere and the lack of oxygen can actually be deadly, and where severe weather can blow up without warning. What could possibly go wrong?
Warnings: A fair amount of adult language, and like, mortal peril, but that's it.

Notes: Gosh, wow, this one has been a journey. I first came up with this story back in 2012, and then I got busy and drifted away from H50 and I never thought this one would live anywhere but inside my head. But Steve and Danny and their stupid feelings... I just couldn't stay away forever I guess. And then there's my feelings about my islands, and this mountain....
This story was written as part of H50 Big Bang 2018. My first ever Big Bang! You should totally check out all the other awesome stories and art (posting of works is staggered, twice a day from April 11-April 17 2018).
Biggest of mahalos to the fabulous lllookalive for her time and talent. Her two works are embedded into the story itself like adorable Easter eggs full of feelings, so you have that to look forward to, lucky readers. I'm tickled pink and you will be too; the faces, look at the faaaaaaaaaces!! TT_TT
Another big mahalo to sapphirescribe for her thorough and thoughtful beta services. The story (and my confidence) are greatly improved through her efforts. Any places where I have gleefully ignored her excellent advice are my fault, not hers.
This story also available on AO3 and DW.
