Sin and Prejudice is a slash Starsky & Hutch story by Charlotte Frost.

It was printed in Heart and Soul #5 and later online.

The Author Comments

One of those stories that you know, in your heart, is a wonderful; but a) it’s over-shadowed by more favored stories in the same zine; and b) the reading public just can’t appreciate a unique, solid story, unless it contains favored elements x, y, and z. This is a story that, if it were a movie, would probably be critically acclaimed, but a box-office failure.

I went a few rounds with an editor on this. At the meeting with the parents, I had Starsky admitting he and Hutch were in a gay relationship. My editor said, “No, no, no!” She finally convinced me that she was right, and I’ve never regretted the change.

This is one of my best-written stories, ever. I think it’s brilliant. [1]

Reactions and Reviews

She wrote a trilogy of sorts in her Heart and Soul zines. She started in HAS2 with The General, followed it up with Girlfriend in HAS4, and finished it with Sin and Prejudice in HAS5. They're a simple testament to normalacy in the face of an injust world. I just want them to have a happy life, a nice home, and live till they're too old to remember different. This does a pretty good job at achieving that. [2]
