But if you connect them directly there is no DC to validate. Can't you just connect over the network?

Try connecting using the IP \\169.254.x.x\ShareName, when asked for credentials you will have to use the account of the laptop to which you are connecting. You may also have to add the domain name to the user name  MyDomain\UserName

Only way this would be possible is if they are admins on the machines..
So one user logs on to both computers with the same username and password whilst on the network and the credentials area cached.
