I enjoyed this story a lot. Favorite line: Where Hutch thinks that Starsky is kissing him so quickly he's (paraphrasing) stealing kisses, didn't he know they belonged to him.

A realization.

This story has a place in my heart. I love the realness, the truth and the way you lead us like lambs to the last chapter and blow it all to kingdom come.

Starsky gets a special kind of clearance, but is Hutch ready to reap the benefits?

What a roll in the hay! LOts of fun--and I don't have to spell it out, I loved this.



Author's Response:

Thank you! I'm so so glad you enjoyed this little PWP. Rolls in the hay are always so challenging for me to write, and I worry about how they'll come across to readers. You've completely reassured me. Believe it or not, I just figured out how to reply to reviews here at the archive! Yeah, I'm a little tech-challenged. *grin* But I always appreciate your support for my writing. Bless you. {{hugs}}

In London in the early years of Victoria's reign, Dr Kenneth Hutchinson meets David Starsky, an actor. A close friendship develops, but Starsky isn't sure what to make of Hutch's friend, Jack Mitchell, or the frightening events that follow on his arrival.

I liked imagining Starsky and Hutch in Victorian London--adn the way you threaded LV Stranger into the story nicely linked it back to the series.



Author's Response:

Thank you. :0) I had fun linking in the ep with the AU.

Starsky has 24 hours to live. Now one of those hours is gone. Missing scene from the ep A Coffin For Starsky.

excellent! I think we need stories for every hour of Starsky's poisoning and this one fills in the gaps for that hour after they left the hospital very well.

Starsky & Hutch are assigned to guard duty, keeping watch over a high-value witness whose testimony could solve a brutal cold case from more than twenty years in the past. As often happens in their world, things may not be what they seem.

That Heublien is a nasty piece of work--playing our guys like that! Poor Hutch--what a horrible fate. I'm so happy Starsky could work out the puzzle and find his Hutch.

Beautiful descriptions and illustrations to go with it--this was a first class collaboration!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much, Dawnie. I am grateful for you putting on the editor's hat and lending a hand along the way. Thanks also for commenting on the excellent work of my collaborators - it was such an adventure to work with them. I loved playing with Heublein - he is based on someone I've met, with an extra bit of imagination thrown in. Cultivated villains are my favorite kind!

A long journey from here to there, with a bit of Starsky H/C, a bit of Hutch angst and a lot of love for Starsky's awesome main of hair...

just fantastic. I haven't read much fic in the last couple years (been writing too much) but I am so GLAD to come back to reading with this great story.

Loved the description of Starsky's hair as 'gorgeously geodesic." I'm a glutton for odd little details and aside bits and your story is chock full of them.

Starsky and Hutch are selected to represent ttheir profession in a very public display and an unusual way. Starsky is thrilled, Hutch is horrified, Captain Dobey is unrelenting. But at least they have each other. Pure gen. No sex, no blood, no whompage, no crime to solve. Just the boys, facing a new frontier side by side.

Author's Notes: Our creative safe zones are our lifeboats. Every now and then, however, it’s a good idea fall over the side and into the unfamiliar waters. For me, humor and silliness are like countries where I understand the languages, but cannot speak the words. Then, at SHareCon 2012, some writers discussed the thrill and challenge of stepping away from our safety nets and trying to turn our writing on its head. This story represents my own attempt at such an action. I considered it part of my SHareCon 2012 homework.

Lots of fun, and a joy to read. I'd be just as much of an asset in a professional kitchen as they two of them were.



Author's Response:

Dawnie-thank you so much for reading and commenting. I think they would dress up any kitchen. Perhaps not be very helpful, but certainly amazing to look at and charming to watch. Thank you again!

In answer to a discussion on the Me and Thee list about someone with a medical background writing a post-Sweet Revenge story.

Not exactly a death story, but if you don't like them, I don't think you'll like this. Set about a month after the episode. Thank you to KimberlyFDR for the speedy beta.

Flattery will get you everywhere. ;-) I've always wanted a few punk rockers in S&H--and could so see Molly trying to rebel in that way.

Hutch's annual CPR certification class brings bad memories of a certain day in May--and there's a Beatles song, too.

Starsky's trapped and a little unnerved, but he has a friend or two to keep him company.

I love this story! How it weaves Starsky's past (Prudholm) into his supposed mental illness and builds his trust so slowly with Hutch. They're still the same guys we see in the series, but Hutch is a doctor who has very good detective skills.

A tribute to the Torino and the chase scenes that made Starsky and Hutch so special.

I love the edginess, the jagged, adrenaline-spiked, raw tone, especially at the end in the section after Starsky is shot. My favorite line is earlier, though, as Hutch looks over at Starsky, "Starsky looks up, like the gaze was a nudge;"

Written for S&H Big Bang 2014: SH Present Tense.

Cover art by Nicky Gabriel.

Twelve-year-old Carlotta's young life has already had enough hard knocks to toughen her outlook on life. Her father died in jail and her mom left her to be raised by her grandmother, her Abuela Mila--the one bright spot in her difficult life. The cynicism she wears like armor makes Carlotta suspicious of the worn-out looking gardener-dude she refers to as "old Hutchinson" who spends a little too much time with her abuela talking about the old days. After a Google-search turns up some surprising information about Hutchinson's history, things take an even stranger turn when Carlotta sees something she never anticipated.

Beautiful picture, Nicky--walking into heaven.

Starsky and Hutch/Boston Legal crossover. It's 2014 and Starsky and Hutch are enjoying their well deserved retirement, when they get a letter from Alan Shore asking them to come to Boston, to meet an associate of Hutch's post-retirement legal-aid activities. They have no idea what they will be asked to do when they get there, but they wouldn't be true to themselves if they didn't find out beforehand all they could about this mysterious, legally unbeatable and possibly criminal Alan Shore.

Death of main character from Boston Legal.

I never watched Boston Legal, but I enjoyed learning about Crane and Shore and the intriguing moral and ethical delimma. Good job!

It's 2014, S&H are active detectives in their late 30's working under Dobey. They've also been lovers for four years, ever since Gunther's attempted assassination on Starsky. However, in a post-DOMA world, they may be the only closeted same-sex partners in LA. And they've got a pretty tight closet. Why? Because couples can't be partners in the police force, and what they do and how they do it, especially since Gunther's hit, has become more than a job to them. It's a mission. And they're not about to trust anyone else to guard their backs. But how long before the strain of their secret relationship starts leaking into the rest of their lives?
