I thought I would never a story where one of partners died. I made myself read it. Not sure why. I always that although it would hard, they were strong enough by themselves to move on. I'm glad Starsky was able to move. Really no matter how close we are to someone when they're gone what choice do we have. What would they want? Thanks for writing this.
I apologize for getting back so late. I never checked the box to be notified that there were reviews out there.
Anyway, I actually wrote 2 death stories and 1 impending death story, believe it or not! Though two take place after. I'm not happy with this one, to be honest. It's one of the first stories I ever wrote and it's choppy and poorly done. It's also difficult without Keiko's prequel, but that's gone from the internet now. But I'm glad someone appreciates the story.
If you want to really read a sad, good death story. Go to the BCL and check out Marianna Rivera's 'Whisper In My Ear', or Lola's 'Never Been to Maine'. They are heartbreaking, but beautiful.
