"Starsky," Hutch muttered, "You think I'm eating in there?" Hutch looked out the window. ...The neon sign spelling out Giovanni's seemed dim...

"You haven't eaten Italian food since it happened." Starsky said. "...I'm the one who got shot, but... you're the one who hasn't healed."

"You said," Hutch argued, "we were gonna talk... Just you and me." And I jumped to all the wrong conclusion...

Suddenly, Starsky reached out and clasped Hutch's upper arm... "It's who-do-you-trust time, Hutch."

Flamingo was startled by a spate of furious barking as her poodle and terrier stormed the front door. She opened the door cautiously.

Starsky grinned at her charmingly. "You put in a police complaint, ma'am?"

"They sent you two?" Flamingo asked incredulously.

Hutch sauntered in. "What's the matter? Were you expecting real police?"

"Well, I know they told me they would send Homicide detectives, but I thought, since you both lived here, there might be a conflict of interest."

Hutch flipped open his notepad. "We're detectives. This is a 'crime against persons.' That's our venue. Can I have your name and address for the record?"

"My name and...!" Flamingo sputtered. " You live here. You know damned well--"

"I-I'm sorry to drag you into this, Starsk," Hutch said, apologetically. "But-I didn't know who else to call. What to do. Where to go."

Starsky enfolded the hand Hutch was clutching the glass with in his own. "You did the right thing, calling me. I'm your friend. I'm here for you."

Hutch looked right into Starsky's calm, sympathetic gaze. "What am I gonna do, Starsk? She wants a divorce! How-how can I just let that happen? How'm I gonna get her back?"

In the mid-1990's, email discussion lists, like VenicePlace (the first S&H slash discussion list), were the primary online fannish venue. Fans treated VP like "...a large, rambling virtual apartment building with unlimited space where we all live next door to those two gorgeous cops, and where every window has a great view of the boys when they come after work!" (From the FAQ) (Thanks to Fanlore.)

In 2004, the SHareCon zine featured Partners in Adversity by CrowRow (Rosemary's VP name) and Flamingo that focused on the Starsky and Hutch movie with Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson released that year. In the movie, after the "new" Starsky drops his Torino in the bay, the original Hutch (David Soul) sells a Torino to him over the protest of the original Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser). On VP, we decided that replacement Torino was only one of the original Starsky's cars, since he had one for every day of the week. It became our new "fanon." The story also treated the movie S&H (sometimes referred to by their first names, or as "the short one" or "the blond one") as crude interlopers on the VP scene. Other issues in the story involved the emerging popularity of LJ and the difficulty some fans had (personified by Hutch) in making the switch to the new medium. We were still using disks back then to transfer files. Remember that?

Okay, that's the Cliff Notes. Remember Cliff Notes?

Traditionally, zines put together for SHareCons include stories, poems, art work, games, puzzles, jokes, anecdotes, works-in-progress, or anything an attending or supporting member of SHareCon wishes to contribute. Some material is gen, some slash. Since only attending and supporting members of the con can contribute material to the zine, it represents a "snapshot" of the fandom at the time it is produced. The SHareCon 2002 had 40 different submissions

Contributors are either attending or supporting members of the con. As we do with most zines, we will present the stories as they appeared in the zine.

"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.

Starsky heard the phone ringing while he was still in the driveway. That's gotta be Hutch. He'll be pissed as hell, but I don't care.

He snared the receiver, only to hear the solid click in his ear as the line went dead.

Hadda be Hutch. I was supposed to call him soon as I left the Pits. That was three hours ago. He's pissed.

And the evening had started out so great-Hutch was supposed to be coming home tomorrow. Now they had no idea how long this trial would take, how long they might be separated.

The phone rang.

Figuring this was part of the game, Starsky smiled slyly and said, "Trick or treat?"

"I guess it's a 'trick'. You can have the 'treat' in a minute, but the trick is, you've gotta answer one question first...."

Grinning, Starsky said quietly, "Okay, okay! What's the million dollar question, already?"

Without letting go of Starsky's wrist, he looked him in the eye and asked point blank, "Why haven't you kissed me again?"

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?
