Well, that was sad. I always felt sorry for Vicious. His best friend and his girl(friend?) both betrayed him. I'd be pretty bitter too if that happened. Bros before hoes, man.
You write a really good Julia. She would totally be the kind of person you write her out to be. I never understood those people who hated Julia just because she's the one Spike loves, and not Faye. She's a great character, you know? Although admittedly, we don't get to see much of her. Anyways, great job once again! I have no shame, and I am totally willing to beg for more Bebop/Champloo fics from you. I'm down on my knees here.

Oh, that story was so wonderful! I'm only sorry I didn't come across it sooner! I love how the story went, and although I happen to be a Spike/Faye fan, it is very refreshing to hear Julia's side. Julia's a nice gal. Her story was very interesting indeed! I'm so glad you wrote it! You are a skilled writer. I applaud you!

::gasp:: An observer! I can't wait to see what happens next! Ooh! I'm gonna continue reading right about now. If you don't get any more reviews from me until the end, take it as a compliment. Heh!

Wow! I really love your story! I don't think the idea of a Julia POV is overdone. Of course, that's just me. I've never seen one before! I've always been kinda curious about Julia's backstory. I can't wait to continue reading! I was actually reading last night. I was about to comment, but something happened to my internet. I'm just glad I can comment now. Great job! I'm gonna go read more!

This is Julia. And now I know why Spike fell for her so hard. And I want to cry for both of them because I know how it's going to end. If it's possible this makes The Real Folk Blues about a million times more poignant and sad. Which is a miraculous feat for anyone to achieve so kudos.
Please write more. Anything. A shopping list would do.

The thing is, she's sort of a bitch. And she isn't this pinnacle, this Madonna, she's a real frickin' person, dammit!
So, to sum up, this is pretty much the only version of Julia I will accept from this point on.
In addition, I am now making it a personal goal to read all your fics.

This is a great story. I like how instead of Julia being some evil, emotionless femme fatale, is just a normal, (though admittedly hilarious) girl who wants something better from life. Your descriptions about Vicious and the whole 'hyperbole' thing made me laugh. You're right, the guy really is over-dramatic, (and that's why I like him ;)). Your Spike in the story was someone a girl could really fall for too, and the ending is amazing. I applaud you for your efforts!

Wow, that was one well written story. Who the hell cares if it's not exactly correct with the Bebop storyline- It was absolute and incredible fun! I loved your clever dialogue especially; you had me laughing out loud many many times, and I thank you for one great read.
| sora kinomoto chapter 15 . 5/7/2006
I loved the story! It was absolutely beautiful, and, of course, sad... but it's their story, it can't be in any other way... If you hadn't heard "Words that we couldn't say" from de soundtrack of Cowboy Bebop, you really should, it's their relationship (I think P). Well, I hope you keep writing.

The anime's weak ghost-like Julia pales in comparison with your dynamic and clever blond bombshell.
You've portrayed her simply as a girl in a bad situation, nothing more, nothing less. I like that.
Her perception on a life-changing event is breath of fresh air in a sea of flashbacks. Your Julia is a work of art ;).
"Well, Trouble, I’m Spike. Welcome to the Stupid Name Club. I’m not only the President, I’m also a client."
Spike hasn't changed much, but I don't have a problem with that. He has too much personality to try and tamper with.
"Don’t you trust me?" (Spike)
"With my life, absolutely. With your own, about half as far as I could throw you." (Julia)
Five stars all the way.

And now I think I really would like to see you tackle a story from Vicious's viewpoint. _
Gods, your Bebop stories are amazing. Just amazing. Very Bebop-y and in character. The mood, the voice, the tone... everything works so well. I'm jealous. XD

I'm just amazed, here, on your thorough take on Julia-where she came from, what was she like, what happened...and how you played her as rebelling against the type of Guinevere, Helen of Troy, and the homewrecking (or mobwrecking) hussy. Man, considering your version, no wonder Faye liked Julia.
I like Julia too.
Even though when she finally appeared in the flesh it marked the end for Spike and Cowboy Bebop and even though I've never met her.
That's how great a job you did, and this is your first fic? Wow.
Spike and Julia. They really were Romeo and Juliet, weren't they? Except this Juliet saved them in the end, for a little, if glorious while.
