    Sam and Al have a whole life together that we get told about in the series before Sam leaps. They work together, they live together. They love, separately but also together.

    Summary

    Although Hutch's partner is a mere Beta, Starsky is the only partner Hutch wants. As an Alpha, he’s never questioned Starsky’s gender. Alphas don’t question Betas about their lives, and they certainly don’t socialize with Omegas, perish the thought.

    Hutch’s only regret is that Starsky’s not an Alpha. Fortunately, Betas have been officially allowed in the Police Department in the Beta Civil Rights era of the 1970s, which is great progress in this dogmatic society. Institutionalized inequality amongst the genders is still in place and Omegas are categorically banned from working for a living.

    Hutch's life is turned upside down when his Captain reveals a sensitive and dangerous secret Starsky’s been keeping for all the years they've been partners. Starsky’s paid a huge price to keep his secret from Hutch and the world.

    Hutch now finds himself questioning the societal order where Omegas are kept from participating in public life. What can he do to change things for the better?

    Meanwhile, their unplanned heat and rut cycles threaten to spiral them both out of control.

    Summary

    The year is 2014, and Hutch has been living peacefully in Duluth with his wife. He hasn't seen much of Starsky for decades and life is good. Being a cop is merely a memory now.
    Three weeks ago, his wife died. She went mercifully quickly, but her death was totally out of the blue. It's shaken Hutch to his core.
    Starsky appears on his doorstep all the way from his busy life in California to help him through it. Hutch is grateful to have his old-time friend with him in his time of grief, but Starsky is outstaying his welcome. Why won't he leave?
    Surely, they have nothing in common anymore. Besides, in four decades, there's too much water under the bridge. Too much unsaid. Too many bad memories he'd left behind from his former life.
    But being with Starsky is comfortable, familiar. It feels right. How can he kick his former lover out?

     

    This story was born out of the nearly impossible concept of, 'Would they ever leave each other? Not for a year, for five years, but for decades.'
    Writing this was heartbreaking, but I had to see it through to the end.
    I hope you're prepared for a whole lot of angst, because that's what it takes to keep these two guys apart.

    Summary

    Part of the SPN_ReverseBang 2016. Artwork by Badwolfgoddess.

    The request of Badwolfgoddess was to write a story where Rowena takes revenge on the boys by turning them into women. The spell lasts a month. Badwolfgoddess wanted Dean to be afflicted with petiteness and serious curves, and Sam to be afflicted with PMS. ;-) Then some Dean(f) and Cas action as well, with Dean having a bit of a gender identity crisis.

    I hope you like it!

    Summary

    Fresh out of Vietnam, Starsky meets Hutch at the Police Academy in the late 1960s, where he falls in love with the drop-dead gorgeous blond blintz.

    Given the times, he knows he can never tell Hutch or ever hope to have a life together, especially because he’s serious about his career in the police force. So Starsky chooses to stay silent about his feelings and to concentrate on becoming a police officer, later detective, and hopes to have Hutch as his partner for as long as possible.

    They’re together every single day, also through life’s ups and downs. It’s at those times when Starsky finds it the most gratifying to have Hutch as his best friend. They are each other’s Bridge over Troubled Water when times get rough. But at these times Starsky’s heart breaks a little further, knowing he can never have Hutch in the way he yearns for.

    Can Starsky keep his desire from Hutch, when they are so close, physically?
    And what does Hutch’s loving affection really mean?
