Primary Subject is a slash 157-page crossover novel. The cover and art by TACS.

It is number fourteen of "Best of the Net."


From the distributor: "Candy Apple takes events of episodes 'Sentinel Too' and 'Night Shift' and puts them in the context of an established slash relationship. This moves the canon of the Outside Influences Series to include the cliffhanger and its on-air resolution. Following the adventures in Sierra Verde, an ill Blair travels to California to spend time with Starsky & Hutch. With their relationship on shaky ground, Jim and Blair deal with the issues raised in their relationship by their interaction with Alex Barnes."

Reactions and Reviews

Sequel to Family Matters in the Outside Influences Universe. No multiple pairings I say again. This story pulls the S2P2 episode into this story line. How Jim and Blair try to keep their relationship together in the light of those events. Blair seeks some distance, needs time to heal physically from and illness, as well as spiritually. So he goes to stay with Starsky and Hutch, but all isn't over with Alex Barnes the worst is yet to come." [1]
Just yesterday Candy Apple posted a new part to her Sentinel/Starsky & Hutch crossover Outside Influences. It is called Primary Subject and pulls the series into the aftermath of the events that occured in S2P1 & S2P2. In this one the boys try to deal with what occured in that ep and how it effects their relationship. In it Blair goes to stay with Starsky & Hutch for a while to get his head together and to heal from an illness. It is really pretty good and Candy has promised a new part coming soon that will most likely deal with something that is brought up in Primary Subject. If it is what I think it is, then it's a good thing.[2]
