Cowboy Bebop recs.

Fandom Category: Cowboy Bebop
Pairing: Faye Valentine/Spike Spiegel
Fic Title: Ain't Afraid To Die
Author: Cassandra
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2910150/1/Aint_Afraid_to_Die
Rating/Warning(s): Hard R, Violence, allusions to non-con.
Genre: AU, retelling, friendship, romance, angst, backstory, action, suspense.
WIP?: This is a work in progress, but updated.

Why This Must Be Read: I really dig this story because it's all about fallout. Fallout of Spike's death, Faye's life, and the Syndicate's new reality. This is a great action-adventure story that takes the end of the series and just builds on it. I love Cassandra's Faye, and her Spike is pretty rad too.

Pairing: Faye Valentine/Spike Spiegel, Julia/Spike Spiegel
Fic Title: Freaks Flock Together
Author: Agent Orange
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/668289/1/Freaks_Flock_Together
Rating/Warning(s): Rish for swearing.
Genre: Friendship, UST, humor.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my most favorite ensemble Bebop stories. The voices are dead in-character and the action's just off-kilter enough to be on target for the series. I also like that the UST is very similar to what we see on the show.

Pairing: Julia/Spike Spiegel, Julia/Vicious
Fic Title: The Reluctant Jezebel
Author: Agent Orange
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/712458/1/The_Reluctant_Jezebel
Rating/Warning(s): R for violence and swearing.
Genre: AU, backstory, romance, action, angst.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: Bar none, this story made me like Julia. This was an incredibly hard thing for me to do because Show-Julia very much felt more like a specter than a fully fleshed-out character. She was the myth or the dream, not a person. This story very much changed that for me. It gives her a voice that was sorely missing in the series.
