The story's time line is Season 2-3 with a flash-forward to Post Sweet Revenge.


"What can the future hold for Starsky and Hutch? When Starsky gets a peek at a future where lines were crossed and choices made, will he choose that future, or will he decide some boundaries are better left alone?"

Reactions and Reviews

"Crossroads" is well-written as well as refreshingly cliché-free, and explores a new topic in the Starsky & Hutch fandom - time travel. Starsky visits a psychic and gets a brief glimpse of a future he can now either work towards or attempt to prevent: him and Hutch as lovers. Unfortunately, while he does make a decision, Sarah stops her tale immediately afterwards. Still, even without a sequel, "Crossroads" is perfect as it is and uses both time dimensions to complement rather than detract from each other, in the end leaving the reader with the promise of a bright future.

I just love this story. Did you ever read a story that just pushed all your buttons, was well written and explored a new theme in fanfiction? Then, look no further, as this story has it all.

A good friend of mine and I discuss this story all the time and point to it as some of the best that Starsky and Hutch slash fandom has to offer. I am just so happy to see it up on the web now.

In it, we get: Starsky and Hutch as lovers, Starsky time traveling to the future to see what his life will be like and a glimpse of what Starsky and Hutch will be doing as mature, older men. The story is filled with love, compassion and the possibilities that a single event can change your life forever. [2]
