Great work with a difficult pairing, very philosophical.

Fantastic fic. Really: one of the best Bebop tales I've come across.

"...what Faye finds herself missing is the ideal of something so eloquent that not even the man who fell for it could stand hearing its name."
"And above all, Faye knows that she likes having things, but hates needing them."
Those were two of my favorite lines; I think you captured two very important aspects of Faye there. I never thought of the possibily of Faye fixating on Julia before, but now that you've presented it here, it makes perfect sense.
I have to tell you, I really like the way you write. The rhythm of your sentences, the effective use of fragments, the surprisingly poignant little details you add in - it's just a joy to read. Yikes, I sound so hokey right now, but it's true. It always makes me happy to find an exceptionally good story on this site, like I'm some kind of literary 49er or something, so please keep it up!

a typo, "mixing together with the leather of the seatcushions." Seat Cushions right?
I like the little touch with the multilingual slang- it fits the setting. As for the story, it's quiet and doesn't move far but it is a nice view into what may be Faye's life if the drama gets left behind.
