The Trial

Work Text:

“Detective Hutchinson.  You were created by the show writers to be heterosexual.  Correct?”


“So, explain to the jury why you developed gay feelings for your partner, leading to you murdering him.”

‘It was all the fault of those evil Slashers.  They put the idea in my head by writing stories about it.  I thought it would all end up like in the stories, but Starsky had never read the stories, so he rejected me.  I had to kill him, you see.”

“Why did you have to kill him?”

“It’s what happens when you turn queer.  Hatred.  Violence.  Murder. It’s inevitable.”

“Yes, and so, members of the jury, you must find my client innocent by reason of insanity. It’s all the fault of the Slashers and their sick ideas.”
