The Fanon Edith

Edith is, without fail, portrayed as kind and capable in fiction. She often helps out Starsky and Hutch, mostly by bringing them food and feeding them. In one slash story, she goes over to Starsky's home while he is in the hospital during "Sweet Revenge" and hides their sex toys so that they won't be found by visiting relatives should Starsky die.

In slash stories, she is almost always understanding of Starsky and Hutch's relationship, sometimes encouraging her somewhat less-tolerant husband to do the same. Sometimes she brings her Christian faith into the argument, telling Harold it would be what a good Christian would do.
