I guess I haven't been paying enough attention to this site lately, Spencer, because somehow I missed this lovely piece. Is it really "Chapter 1"? Are there more? I WANT TO READ MORE!!! If you haven't written them yet, what are you waiting for? I loved this! And my favorite line? "Naive one minute, whip-smart the next, with a gentle nature that still could pound a hulking hood to a pulp." One of the best character descriptions I've ever read of Starsky. Thanks for thinking of this pre-series story and then for writing it so well.
