Damn you for ruining all other fanfics for me. Not just Bebop ones, but ALL. OTHER. FANFICS. And just so you realize the magnitude of that statement, you should know that I spend countless hours a week just reading stories from this god forsaken site.
You glorious bastard, I've never come so close to crying from a fanfic before, but damn if I didn't get bleary eyed in each of the final few chapters. This was so wonderfully developed from the characters, to the story line, to their relationship (chokes back a sob). This was the greatest literary emotional roller coaster I have rode in a while, and I can't favorite it enough.
Anyways, you probably won't ever read this review, but I'd rather die before I forget to praise the author of such a satisfying and memorable story.

wow! great story!
I'm really glad you didn't make the Spike/Faye relationship too cheesy/mushy! I do hope you can add a continuation to this story! :P

I absolutely loved the story, thank so much for writing it!

Loved the ending. Sweet!

Considering the number of stories which consist of angst and death in the Cowboy Bebop fandom, your one was a very refreshing change.
A good change.
Wonderful fanfic, I read this a while back but have only left a review now. :/ Apologies.

Hi! _ Just wanted to let you know that I absolutely loved your story and I'm glad that there was no death in this fic. While I know it's realistic and that life can't be all sunshine and rainbows as we'd like it to be, it's nice to forget the drama that exists in our everyday lives. Which is why I try to avoid reading unpleasant endings, lol.
Anyway, I'm not sure if you have a sequel to this, but if you don't it would be great to see how they grow as a family. Then again, the way it ended was just perfect so there isn't any need for a sequel and... Ugh. Now I'm babbling... sorry ::gives sheepish grin:: Had waaay too much coffee today and I'm still drinking it!
Thank you for writing this wonderful fic _

I completely cracked up at this part :) Only good writing can make you feel so much that you have to do something. In my case it was laugh and smile and I have to thank you for that. :)
"Well, it's a really good looking baby. You two must be really proud." He told us, a kind of pride in his own voice at the fact that everything seemed to be alright with our baby. He probably thought it was the oatmeal that had saved it.

I love this story. I read it a few years ago before I really got into Cowboy Bebop. Years later, after becoming obsessed with Cowboy Bebop I was searching for it, having no idea what it was called and only remembering that Faye was pregnant. I looked everywhere. I already had you bookmarked as a favorite because of Center Stage and I scrolled down to more of your stories and there it was! This story just makes me smile and laugh and I adore it.

Great story! When I first got into this anime I didn't like that paring at all. But you made it so subtil and real that I thought it could really work out this way. You're a great writer (good spelling, good grammar, nice descriptions).
Oh and I might add I don't usually like the "first-person-writing-style", but in this story it just matched.
Keep on writing!

OH SO GOOD. SO GOOD. I love your writing style. I usually shy away from first-person point of view fics, but this was just BEAUTIFUL. This is how the series should have ended, haha.
AND THIS PARAGRAPH WAS EPIC WIN:
“That time you said my coffee was too weak? I couldn’t stand it at first how strong you wanted it, but I drank it so that you’d be satisfied. And when you wanted some cheese three months ago, I went to six different towns before I found a store that sold anything I knew you’d eat..."
I just about melted in my chair, haha. This was a great story :D

Best FayexSpike fic ever! Congratulations!

Being a relatively new Cowboy Bebop fan, I have only just recently delved into fanfiction and stumbled upon your story.
First off, let me say that I'm not typically one for the whole "what if Spike lived?" scenario, simply because I feel as if Spike's death was the only appropriately poignant ending to such a series, for multiple reasons that I will not elaborate on in this review. Anyway, despite that, I was intrigued by your fic from the start and barely stopped reading until I had finished.
Your handling of these characters is spot-on, in my opinion. Faye's narrative is witty, entertaining, often amusing enough to make me laugh, and, most importantly, very distinctively Faye. Spike is, as you recognized yourself, a very different character in this story than he is in the series, but in light of his life-altering experience in The Real Folk Blues I find I don't have much of a problem with his blatant OOC-ness. How Spike would really behave had he survived that fight with Vicious is infinitely open for speculation and debate, but I find your interpretation to be plausible and, furthermore, brilliantly executed. Spike is a changed man and altogether different character, certainly...but he is still very much Spike. You have not altered the core of his character. You capture the overall essence as well as the little quirks and mannerisms that make Spike who he is, and you build your own alteration of his character around that. As for supporting characters: Jet and Ed are wonderfully in character and you write them very well.
Also, while the entire premise of Spike and Faye developing a relationship and Faye getting pregnant had the potential to be disastrous...once again, you did it so well. You never let the story or the character interaction get overly-sentimental or cheesy and, as previously stated, you remained true to the core of each character in dropping them into these bizarre circumstances.
Thanks for an all-around good read. :]
