In the Beginning…
One of my favorite subgenres within the MFU fandom is the classic “how they met” story. The TV show began with Illya and Napoleon already teamed up so the exact details of how the two first came to be partners is prime fodder for many authors’ imaginations.

It’s bit difficult to describe this story – Starsky and Hutch rescue a kidnapped boy and get invited to the family’s Dia de los Muertos celebration.

Two Weeks Notice
Arthur is a prattish Executive VP of the Pendragon Corporation with a disturbingly non-ironic love of Demotivational posters. Merlin is a tree-hugging barista with a "magic" tongue. Morgana's a peeping Tom and her breasts have superpowers. Gwen and Lancelot get married. Owain is the company bicycle. Arthur attempts to steal Merlin's affections from Will through epic DDR combat. Merlin gets drunk a lot. There is a pillow fight, and a helicopter ride, and rooftop confessions, and Arthur decides Merlin really is his destiny, whether he likes it or not.

Phoenix Burning
During that summer after season 5, the BtVS fandom literally exploded with post-“Gift” fanfiction. Phoenix Burning made no attempt to dovetail into a possible season 6 and bravely set off into full-on AU with tremendous results, and became one of those do-not-miss stories in the fandom. It takes place 350 years in the future where the supernatural is no longer a dirty little secret: the demon situation is out of control, and the Watchers’ Council, also no longer secret, decide they need more help and bring back five of the greatest slayers, including Buffy as I’m sure you’ve guessed.

A Fine Storm
A Fine Storm can be read completely independently, though it was originally a sequal to the short story Between The Hours of Five and Nine by April Valentine in the zine, No Pants, No Badge, No Gun. That story proposed that during A Coffin For Starsky Starsky & Hutch returned to Starsky's apartment to rest during a period of time not shown in the episode. While there, the intensity of what they were going through and the desperation of what might have been Starsky's last hours resulted in their making love.
