Reactions and Reviews

There is a filk text (Hutch's lament (tune to the Battle hymn of the Republic: My eyes I've shut with terror/At the screetching of the Wheels//From my fear of Starsky's driving/My blood is all congealed// ...// Will I go living on?" Love that sort of stuff. Are there any actual S&H or S/H Filksongs? (if so, where to get them?) Other surprise in it: pics by Joy Riddle... And although I am usually totally immune to poetry, I rather liked the one about the rats. And Never Again by D.C. Black was a good "&" story: Starsky's mounting state of anxiety brought by the belief that Hutch had had an accident, and the satisfyingly complex description of his reaction to it. That story was not slash, but the adding of a single sentence could have made it so. So what is the big deal? Why is the presence or abscence of such a sentence important to some? lt is to me. [1]
