Review:
The basic premise: Starsky, who is secretly in love with Hutch, and has sex with Hutch one night. In the sequel some years later, things finally get resolved.

Rosemary writes some of the best relationship angst - heartbreaking enough to really tug at your emotions but not so overwhelming that you lose the satisfaction and credibility of a fluffy happy ending. Bargain at Any Price and Balance Due are classic pining stories, gorgeous and deft in their execution. Told from Starsky's point of view, the stories do a marvelous job of demonstrating his longing but simultaneously leave you in little doubt that Hutch is in much the same position. Starsky does go through some mental rationalizations that make you want to smack him (and Hutch) upside the head but while it's clear to the reader what's going on, Starsky's obliviousness is not unbelievable either. Rosemary walks a fine balance in that regard but pulls it off with graceful ease.

Angsty, sweet, and plenty schmoopy at the end. A favorite of mine in the pining genre.

Tandem by Paula Wilshe & Hutchrules3 (R)

Title: Tandem
Authors: Paula Wilshe & Hutchrules3
Fandom: Starsky and Hutch
Pairing: Starsky/Hutch
Categories: Romance, First time, Fluff, Hurt/Comfort, Holiday
Length: Epic
Warnings: n/a
Website: n/a?

Authors’ Summary: Starsky and Hutch spend Christmas taking care of Hutch's parents' home. While there they deal with Hutch's difficult relationship with his parents, both of their fears about Hutch's recent tangle with the plague and the new dimension that seems to be developing in their relationship.

Review:
The summary above actually gives you a pretty good synopsis of what you’re getting into with this story. If you’re wanting something heavy on plot, this is not the fic for you, but if you want a story focusing on character relationships and heavy on hurt/comfort (for BOTH Starsky and Hutch, even) then you can’t go wrong with Tandem. The story is set over the boys’ visit to wintertime Minnesota and even amidst the hurt part of the hurt/comfort and the family drama, the authors still manage to capture that comfortable vacation feeling. It’s slow, sweet, and gentle, and their coming together is natural and angst-free.

Perfect for anyone craving a dash of hurt/comfort and angst with an emphasis on the comfort and romantic fluff. Also as a bonus: there is a lovely pencil drawing of Hutch at the beginning of the story worth checking out itself.

Dia de los Muertos by Morgan Logan (NC-17)

Title: Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)
Author: Morgan Logan
Fandom: Starsky and Hutch
Pairing: Starsky/Hutch
Categories: Hurt/Comfort, Angst, Romance
Length: Medium
Warnings: none

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] morganlogan
Website: molo’s place

Author’s Summary: Hutch is feverish

Review:
It’s bit difficult to describe this story – Starsky and Hutch rescue a kidnapped boy and get invited to the family’s Dia de los Muertos celebration. At the same time, Hutch is struggling to understand his relationship with Starsky now that they’ve embarked on a physical relationship and he comes down sick as well. The whole story, between Hutch’s fever and the Dia de los Muertos celebration, is tilted towards the dreamy, surreal side. It’s not a get-together fic, per se, but it feels like a first-time fic.

Molo has a knack for writing the guys realistically and packing a whole lot into a relatively short story (it always surprises me when I check her word count because it feels like there’s more). There’s a dash of angst, action, hurt/comfort, romance, and just some all-around lovely writing all in a medium-sized fic.

Title: Home Front
Author: Rosemary/Tira Nog

Pairing: Starsky/Hutch
Categories: hurt/comfort, romance, fluff
Length: Long
Warnings: minor character death (an OC, though)
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] tiranog
Website: http://tiranog.southroad.com/

Review:
For those of you who weren't aware, Tira Nog (previously recced in the HP and Highlander fandoms) used to write fiction under the name of Rosemary, and some of her best stuff, in my opinion, was in the Starsky and Hutch fandom.

Home Front is a quiet, sweet get-together fic, very much focused on Starsky and Hutch rather than on any cases. It all starts when Hutch receives news that his grandmother - the only relative he genuinely cares for - has passed away, and the partners travel back to Minnesota for her funeral. At the same time, Starsky is grappling with his newly discovered feelings for Hutch.

Rosemary has a knack for sweet stories, relationship angst, and vulnerable characters, and this is a lovely example. It's just an all-around charming read - Starsky is a sweetheart, Hutch is vulnerable in a nice, understated way, and they even get together on Christmas. I admit, it makes my heart melt every time I reread it.
