Layers: Ten days since his hospital release and he still awoke in layers, though not as many. The drugs were fewer, the dreams less hallucinatory, and the pain far less brutal. Which was why, as he gradually came to, he realized there was a heaviness he was not leaving behind.
Drenched: A sequel to Layers. Once at Hutch’s, Starsky slept on the couch as they both knew he would, while Hutch pottered and spritzed. His plants had not all taken well to Hutch’s frequent absences and a few required immediate attention. Which was fine by Hutch. Nothing shifted his mind into neutral like his plants, and he was soon lost in the contentment of his greenhouse. So much so that he didn’t notice Starsky, leaning against the doorframe watching him, an almost wistful expression on his face.
“Such devotion, Blondie. Wish I was a Boston fern.”
Reccer Notes: In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that this recording was done as a gift for me; but when you think about it, fannish gifts are meant to be shared, which really means this is a gift for all of you, too *g* And what a wonderful pressie it is.
fire_juggler is a delight to listen to. She’s got a warm, expressive style that is easy on the ears and an impeccable sense of timing. These stories are gently humorous and sweetly moving by turns, and FJ hits all the emotional notes perfectly. Her affection for the characters and respect for the story is clearly evident. All in all, this is simply a beautifully read podfic.

Starsky & Hutch
Honestly, if I had one of these I’d just drive around all day crashing into poles of cardboard boxes.
I watched that ep of Starsky and Hutch last night where Starsky is poisoned and only has 24 hours to live and omfg the h/c cuddling and eye-fucking and just lack of boundaries was through the roof. I thought they were gonna make-out like in five different scenes. Hutch was all angry and desperate and it was awesome.
Sorry I haven’t been active much lately, Senior year is a bitch. I have some exciting news though, I wrote a fic! It’s on AO3, my user name is Conatum, and its under Starsky and Hutch. It would mean so much if you would go and check it out? Thank you so much, and I promise to start updating more frequently.
After Starsky kills Bellamy (an example great shooting – it’s dark and he’s so ill he’s lost much of his vision and coordination) Hutch comes up to him. In what is one of the most beautifully staged scenes between them, he gently reaches down and takes Starsky’s gun, then lays his head against the concrete, leaning into him. Harsh shadows and strong light make this all look very noir. Starsky begins to lose consciousness and they both go down against the wall, and it’s almost romantic, although the word seems inadequate, in the way he locks eyes with Hutch as he does so. [x]
THIS IS A VIEWING EMERGENCY I NEED TO WATCH THIS
Re-watch! :) first time in almost seven years though, and with a MUCH different perspective, so I may as well be watching it for the first time for some episodes.
Also HE TOTALLY DID AND I LOVE IT. It’s a great episode! Feel so bad for Hutch though. It didn’t seem like he really wanted to shag the lady. If you ask me, he wasn’t acting when they were at her place getting ready to do the do. He was uncomfortable and nervous, and he’s been known to get clumsy and fumble everything when he is (I can’t think of examples off the top of my head but I know they’re there somewhere). So it was like he did it willingly, but only because he needed to in order to nail the extortion ring, not because he wanted to have sex with her.
I WENT OFF TOPIC A BIT I’M SORRY. Thank you for the message! ^^
Sure! Don’t quote me on this, but when the show was still airing, there was some controversy on the gay ‘sub-text’ that went on. I think there was a magazine article expressing its disapproval of the show, stating that these ‘French kissing prime time homos’ shouldn’t have a prime time slot of airing. That’s what I’ve heard anyways. (If this is wrong please do correct me)
How have I waited this long till watching Starsky and Hutch? It’s seriously so great. The bromance. The subtext. The not-even-subtext. The hot guys and the rad car.
