Hi! Hard-Boiled Baby here, Baby or HBB for short. I first dipped my toes into fannish waters in 2009, and I've been having a blast ever since.

Besides this wonderful archive, my S&H stories can also be found at Archive of Our Own

I mostly hang out on LiveJournal; if you're in the neighborhood, feel free to stop by. Thanks for reading!

What a great fic! Echoing the other commenters: this would have been an awesome episode :) 



Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I wrote this so long ago. It's nice to know you still enjoyed reading it. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know. :))) 

It had been a perfect performance, that impromptu act for Kira's benefit.... It had looked so smoothly orchestrated that it had fooled Kira, maybe even Huggy.

One more time: me and thee against the world....

Arms still around each other, they emerged from The Pits into the street, but Starsky's arm dropped away from the taller man's shoulders, abruptly dislodging Hutch's in the process....

"Now you can go to hell," Starsky continued, still levelly, and started for his car.... He slammed the door and the car roared away.

So much for me and thee, Hutch concluded.

Such a heartfelt, heart-rending, then heart-healing journey for Hutch, and for Starsky ♥ ♥ ♥

 

"Well," Starsky said cheerily, pulling the Torino into the nearest parking space, "we're here!"... "Y'ready t'check in?"

"In a minute," Hutch said, tonelessly. He continued to examine everything within his range of vision.

As in tune with his partner as he'd always been, Starsky knew what Hutch's keen eye would notice....

Stop it! Starsky ordered himself, snapping out of his grim reverie. Just 'cause Hutch is wired for light and sound, doesn't mean you have to be. We're two guys on vacation, that's all. Just like everybody else here. Vacation. Period.

Their first real vacation in forever. Or at least several years. And their very first since...since...

The hit in the parking lot.

Enjoyed this very much, Flamingo, thank you! Soxendom's podfic is wonderful.

Hutch thinks playing tennis is a great idea for a day off. Starsky doesn't agree.

Such a lovely story. I can definitely see this happening in the aftermath. Thanks for sharing!



Author's Response:

Thanks, Baby! So glad you enjoyed it. :)

Summary: After Terri's death, Hutch brings Starsky to the beautiful and wild Lost Coast of Northern California in hopes that his partner can find distance, peace and reprieve from his sorrow.  Even with the best of intentions, the most unique of friendships can be threatened beyond repair by terrible grief.

First appeared in the 2010 SHareCon Zine.

Episode/Event Horizon: Starsky’s Lady – 3 months following the episode tag

Author's Notes: Thank you to Sue Beck and her comments on the Me&Thee list. I asked a question there - why did Terri leave Ollie to Hutch? Sue’s response was about symbolism and how we cannot gift someone with something they already have.

I wrote this story on the heels of a period of tremendous grief and loss in my own life. In this little tale, I tried to give the boys the optimistic ending I myself had wished for.

Gorgeous, Angel. A little H/C, a lot of angst, and a hopeful ending--everything I adore in a story, and so well done. Thanks for sharing!

Starsky might not know everything about his partner.

A little hurt!woobie, some delightful banter, and a lotta love. *squee*! Enjoyed this immensely, thank you! 



Author's Response:

Thank you so much for the lovely review! H/c, banter, and love -- three of my favorite things about the TV series, so I'm absolutely ecstatic that all of these came across to you as a reader. Bless you for sharing my fandom journey and encouraging me as a writer. {{hugs}}

Starsky is provided with an unusual means of acquiring a spouse, but will he be able to accept the reality of that life-mate's identity and handle the consequences when he breaks the rules to find out who has been entrusted with his love?

It's here, it's here, it's here, squee! A wonderful story, I'm so pleased that it's new and improved and available once again. Thank you! :)



Author's Response:

It's here, it's here! I hope to get all of my older stories archived here eventually but I'm still working on polishing them for their permanent fandom home. I'm so delighted you enjoyed this story and thank you for this review and for sharing your enjoyment of the story with me. Bless you! I apologize that I'm just now responding but I just now figured out how to reply to reviews here at the archive. {{hugs}}

It's Hutch's first day home from the hospital after being trapped under his car.

I'm so pleased to see this fic here on the archive! I love how the story unfolds, a wonderful example of "show, don't tell." Thanks so much for sharing this :)

The past begins to haunt Starsky and he feels called to make a pilgrimage.

But here, in the hollow of the earth created by this black monument, silence seems to reign. Even the littlest child seems to realize this is a holy place, a sacred spot, and a hush fills the air.

So very true. You've captured the essence of what it's like to stand in the presence of the monument, steeped in the memories of the lives cut short. A very moving story, thank you for sharing.

Starsky's missing, Hutch is looking, and a battery-powered radio is helping -- sort of.

You have completely ruined this song for me, I hope you know that! ♥



Author's Response:

The Cucaracha song or the Happy Birthday song? (Glad to oblige! I've never felt the same about them either.) Thanks for your comment!
