Pairing: Faye Valentine/Jet Black
Fic Title: Saltwater Cowboys
Author: Amaretto and coke
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, although it does have some sexual references.
Why This Must Be Read: This fic works great as a sequel to the end of the series. The author does a great job describing both of the protagonists after they meet again, while they are trying to cope with the loses they are still facing (damn, it's hard to write without spoiling the series!). The drama is marvelous, and the story manages to deal with past relationships without bashing them. As an extra bonus, the author had not only used the Cowboy Bebop universe in an superb way, but has also added her own knowledge as a restaurant manager to add realism to the story. There's little mention of sex, but it's quite hot. ;)
