The love, tenderness, the always thinking of the other - this is what I love about these two and you wrote this so wonderfully. It is truly a beautiful story. You filled in gaps that couldn't be shown on the show--Starsky's letter, Hutch holding him in his lap in the car when he was sick, his thoughts, etc. I agonized with them both. In the ending, I also liked how you added that bit about the trip being for both of them. Once again, great writing.
I'm a sucker for these sweet little tear-jerker stories. You did this one so nicely. "I knew that keeping me alive was keeping Hutch alive." "I told him I didn't want him to be hanging around the cemetery. I wanted him to move on with his life." I hope you write more.
