Pairing: Faye Valentine/Spike Spiegel
Fic Title: Ain't Afraid To Die
Genre: action adventure, character study, UST
Special Rec: 14/30
Why This Must Be Read: Spike and Faye have everything that you shouldn't want in a relationship--death, debt, ANGST, difficult pasts, mob/syndicate troubles, love lives more complicated than binary code--but somehow they just SPARK. This fic is very much about all these qualities. Taking place after the anime finishes it continues exploring the Bebop's crew past, namely Faye's. In a way if the show is about Spike coming to terms with his past this fic is about Faye coming to terms with hers.
