Promoting SHarecon [Feb. 13th, 2016|10:57 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


If your workplace is like mine, you may be having to request vacation time now for the rest of the year. Let me put in a shout-out for SHarecon, October14-16 in Laurel, Maryland. For those of you who haven't ever been to a fandom con, or maybe you have but to a generalized all media con like Escapade or Comicon, or maybe a big biz con like ones put on by Creationcon (X-files or Star Trek, maybe) SHarecon is in a class by itself.

It's small (generally fewer than 75 fans), intimate, all Starsky and Hutch, all the time for an entire weekend. Even if you are shy, a newbie, nervous or never wrote a fic, made a vid or drew a picture, if you love Starsky and Hutch, this con is for you! Start saving your pennies. This is one of the bestest cons on the planet, hosted by our own fabuloso Flamingo.

There are panel discussions, (which guy had more injuries and illnesses?), games, (can you remember when Starsky mentioned he'd been in the Army?) crafts, (we made macrame bracelets one year--and I was terrible at it!) episodes to watch (don't ask Flamingo to air ACFS one more time), new vids to see--and really old ones, (some of the the first ever made to the tune of The Rose!) and dancing--with cake. In between, you can greet old friends, make new ones, put faces to screen names and have a ball.


Say you'll come!

Tuesday S&H recs: Valentine's day [Feb. 9th, 2016|06:30 pm]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


I am not a hearts and flowers kind of girl. Like editors always say to us writers--show, don't tell. When I write, I try to avoid the L-O-V-E word for as long as possible. The belly pats, Starsky buying Hutch a car that he hates, Hutch sitting up with Starsky until midnight playing Monopoly until they open their gifts from Terry. Those are my kind of romance novels.

Vitamins by RomanKate is lovely in an understated way. I'd never read--or heard it read--before, but I was looking under V for Valentines and found this gem. ;-)


What kind of romantic stories do you like?

Looking for a story [Feb. 5th, 2016|03:10 pm]
Starsky & Hutch Fans

[Tags|, ]

Does anyone recognize this story? it was a longer story. I think that they'd been having some sexual tension before taking the case, but hadn't acted on it yet

I think part of their cover was being a couple. So they went in pretending to be. Hutch was pretty nonchalant about the whole thing; trying to sooth starsky's nervousness of playing gay while undercover. And I think whole reason Starsky ended up being nervous was because he was so conflicted with his feelings for Hutch.I can't remember anything about what they were investigating. (Maybe it was somebody killing gay couples?..)  they have to get more physical with each other to be convincing. They're at the bar and Hutch is trying to ease Starsky into kissing him. He says something like, "I know you're nervous but it's just me. Just trust me." And Starsky is so conflicted he says something like, "I have to follow your lead." Or maybe Hutch tell him to follow his lead...any help greatly appreciated

sorry for some reason can't get lj cut to work right

Tuesday S&H recs: Groundhog day [Feb. 2nd, 2016|10:37 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


February 2 is Groundhog day in the US--that day when a rodent in Punxsutawney, Penn pops out of his hole and either see his shadow and predicts more winter or does not and, hey presto, it's an early spring. Apparently, this year it will be an early spring.

But we're not interested in rodents, but the movie of the same name: Groundhog Day with Bill Murray, who is fated to repeat the same day/events over and over until he gets it right. Rae's story finds Starsky reliving Hutch dying of the Plague. I believe there is at least one other story with this theme--by wightfaerie, maybe, but I couldn't find it.

This time by Rae
An alternative reality to The Plague. Think Groundhog Day but it ain't funny to Starsky.

Or any story that makes you think of spring--or even a longer winter. It's all Starsky and Hutch, no need to stick to the theme!

Tuesday S&H recs: The Game [Jan. 26th, 2016|09:22 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


The Game--a much maligned episode where the guys seem to be behaving uncharacteristically and they're barely in the same scenes. Hutch contracts botulism from a bad can of soup--then does some piss-poor investigating while sick instead of calling in the police, and Starsky manipulates Hutch's emotions shamelessly by pretending to be badly injured. Where's the "let's fix this" fic?

Wading in da Nile by Dawnwind (slash)
I didn't try to fix anything in the plot because I wasn't sure where to start. Missing scenes, instead! Hutch is gravely ill and what can Starsky do to turn their lives around?

There must be other The Game eps--or anything else you want to rec instead! C'mon, entertain me.

Prompt Fic: Week 47 [Jan. 24th, 2016|04:23 pm]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


Time for a new prompt fic post!

The basic rules are:

* Anyone can leave a prompt, anyone can fill a prompt.

* Each prompt should be posted as separate comment. Up to five prompts per person, please. (No limit on fills.)

* Prompts should be formatted: Character(s) or pairing(s); prompt

For example:
Starsky+Hutch; illusion
Starsky/Hutch; mambo
Any+any; working overtime

* To fill a prompt, reply to the appropriate comment with your fic. If your fill is too long for a single comment, you may post in multiple comments or post elsewhere and provide a link.

* Multiple fills to the same prompt is perfectly fine.

* You are allowed to fill your own prompt.

* If none of the current prompts catches your fancy, search the !lonely_prompt tag on delicious for more ideas.

More detailed information can be found here. Happy writing!

Tuesday S&H recs: Officer Down [Jan. 19th, 2016|04:43 pm]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


Why do we like the hurt/comfort stories so much? That rush of adrenaline--will he survive? Will the partner arrive in time?

I haven't read many of K Hanna Korossy's fic. I liked the juxtaposition of Starsky and Hutch arguing in a flashback with the immediacy of Starsky's injury and how the pieces slowly merge together. And being a Californian, it always amuses me when there's something in a story that proves the author has never been here--but that's me. lol

Thirty Minutes (gen)

Other than SR stories (and those are fine, too!) which are your favorite Starsky or Hutch hurt on the job fic?

Rec [Jan. 12th, 2016|10:15 pm]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


I just got done reading this series for the first time, so probably everybody else already has, but it's still worth mentioning. There are a lot of graphic slash scenes, which honestly sort of all sound the same to me after awhile (in general - not just in reference to this or any other story), but you can't really read the series without them.  A lot of important things happen to strengthen our understanding of the characters during some of those very intense moments.

There's humor and sweetness packed together, with a good taste of our boys. The voices are pretty good, the guys are in character, and it's fun to read.

I think what I like best of all is how sneaky each story is. They are incredibly deep while not really coming across that way. Some very real emotions tucked between the lines.


The Big One series by Bdonna and Molo. Even the individual themes and titles are brilliant. Enjoy!!

Tuesday S&H recs: Hutch [Jan. 12th, 2016|10:06 am]
Starsky & Hutch Fans


So I had a theme in mind: the ep Nightmare. But couldn't find a fic based on Nightmare I liked. As is often the case when I haven't got a specific story in mind, I go wandering through the archives--and found this gem by Callisto, one of my favorite authors who no longer writes in the fandom. Alas--but I hadn't read it, so yay for discovering new stories.

A Battle Story by Callisto (gen)

It's set directly after Deckwatch and Hutch is having a difficult time decompressing. I love the way Deckwatch, Shootout and The Trap intersect in his brain.

So, let's call it Hutch week! Which are your fave Hutch-centric stories?

Also, I am tossing about an idea of featuring specific authors each week--and possibly even doing little interviews with authors in our fandom. Is anyone interested who writes to participate in a short interview? Just general questions on what started you writing, why you write and what inspires you?
