dalegardener: A terrified young woman from the cover of a classic horror comic (Spook Me)
[personal profile] spook_me is a Halloween challenge and I'm so pleased to have written a Starsky and Hutch story for it. The banner is by [personal profile] neevebrody

This story is one of those 'the author chooses not to warn' deals. Please read at your own discretion. 4,700 words, gen, mild horror themes. Besides the story, at the bottom of the page under the cut is the information about my prompt and the two comic book covers that were used as additional prompts this year. I used one of them.

Many thanks are owed to Nico for a general beta, and to Judy and Nico both for ensuring that I didn't embarrass myself in the last section of this story.

Summary: "You son of a bitch!" Starsky crows. The little watering can hits the floor with a plastic clatter. "Hutch,where the hell have you been?"

My prompts )

The ep opens with sirens sounding and armed guards scrambling at a federal penitentiary. Nearby two men wait in a car until they hear someone banging on the grate of a drain, and one of them helps another man in prison blues emerge. He is urgently demanding they get out of there and the car drives off.

I have no idea why they chose to title this episode Lady Blue, aside from the fact that someone on the crew was perhaps a mad keen Leon Russell fan. Obscure titles aside, this is watchable and has some lovely S and H interaction.

A slash epilogue to Bloodbath, which is an episode that continues to obsess me. 3065 words, mature concepts, sex, profanity.

Angel on Livejournal and I were discussing Hutch's cowboy tendencies as displayed in canon, and this bit of writing popped out. Gen. 240 words approx.

Cowboy Dreams

It's a favourite daydream. It has been ever since you were a small boy, and while some of the trimmings change, the basics never do.

There's a big sky above. Sometimes it's a blue so deep and pure that you think it must go on forever, and sometimes it's black, sprinkled with stars that you never see when you look up from city streets. There's a horse, a gentle-natured beast with a big heart, that whinnies to greet you. There's grassland, stretching out as far as your eyes can see, lush green or grain-gold, as the mood takes you.

When you were young you rode that grassland alone, and sometimes you still do, but nowadays you have a companion as often as not. It's Starsky of course, riding a big, mean, bay horse. Both horse and rider have a glint of mischief in their eyes. Sometimes you talk. Sometimes you simply ride, companions in quiet, because if there's one thing that you know, it's that sometimes silence is the only thing that will do.

You suspect that Starsky might laugh if you tried to tell him, especially about his presence in your little dream-world. The two of you whittle jokes and banter with a knowledge of each other as sharp as a Bowie knife, and sometimes the blade slips. So you let your dream out into the real world in small ways - your clothes, your music. Just a whisper of a cowboy dream.

The episode Bloodbath is stuck in my head. I was kind of amused that the image of Hutch as the white knight, a fairly beloved fanon, originated with Simon Marcus, who's as slimy a villain as ever made life difficult for our heroes. There's nothing explicit here, but it's about as disturbing as you think it might be getting inside Marcus's head. And slash is maybe implied, if you squint, so I'm giving this the slash tag rather than the gen.

This ep is maybe a little light on our cops, but it's well-plotted, with an assortment of unlikable but vivid supporting characters.

Drabble, ie 100 words, gen, pgish for adult concepts, I guess. Written for the 'deep' challenge on the MeandThee-100 comm on Live Journal.

Too Deep

A cop is always in too deep with his city, delving worm-like into her innards, hoping that it's the good earth he leaves behind him, and not just more shit. A cop knows the rough places where the garbage lies out in the open, and he knows the shiny places where the rot lies discreet and hidden. A cop can't drive past the blue sparkling ocean without wondering what rests below the surface.

A cop is always in too deep with his city. A man needs something (or someone) to haul him to the surface. Lucky he has Starsky, then.

This was written for the Me and Thee 1000 comm on LJ, to the prompt 'whumpage'. I suppose it's possible that I've accidentally lampooned some actual fanfic story situation or theme in here. If so, I do promise it was accidental. :0)

Whumpage
Starsky/Hutch, mild sexual references, spoilers for various episodes, 856 words.

Slash, 500 words, sexually explicit.

I wrote this after bingeing on the start of series two - Murder at Sea, Vendetta and Gillian all combined to produced this bit of PWP.

The challenge in the Me and Thee 100 comm was Fat Rolly. Someone must have appreciated him, even temporarily. :0)


This beer sure is strong... Not even a 'I love you, Lillian'. It's not like I don't love my big lummox but he ain't much of a talker. Makes me mad. Rolly, he's a solid guy, and I like 'em solid, it's reassurin', and he's got sweet talk. Plus, he's a businessman. It's not classy, but Rolly is enterprising and you gotta respect that.

I feel awful how Rolly got hurt, but a woman appreciates it when her sweetie gets riled like that. Pardon my hiccup. It's not sweet talk, but it's reassurin', and sometimes a girl just needs reassurin'...

This is the first episode of season 1 that I had seen before, and I was looking forward to renewing acquaintance. There are good reasons why this one is a fan favourite after all.
