great one-shot, even angsty Spike was in character IMO. And I loved the subtle Spike-Faye hints. These two are too reserved for a fluffy romance. I think there are too many fanfics where they kiss suddenly and then are all like 'omg I love her so much'.

WOW. I don't think I can properly describe how much I love this, I think I was expecting something rather trite from the setting, maybe with some profundity that usually comes with copious amounts of alcohol, but as soon as Faye and Spike started interacting, I can literally see fireworks exploding, but of a different kind, not of the celebratory sort where a couple long thought to be compaitable falls inexplicably in love with the other becuase of chemistry but of the...two parties, filled with longing, one more than the other, one broken and another clumsy and not someone who fixes things, it's like...the fireworks...the sound of two people coming together, of two odd fitting individuals...finding some ways to squeeze into each other's heart and lives.

Spike and Faye's dialogue really assaulted me with feelings, I can't properly identify which one I liked best, but the first one that jumped out to me was "It's quiet because it's lonely" - it says so many so many things to me, not just about the atmosphere of the place they are in, but Spike as a person, maybe even Faye, herself and her concept of loneliness. And...the atmosphere of the place, I can literally hear the soft jazz tunes, the clink of the glasses, Faye' shuffling into the bar stool, and then "You're not looking at me" - the implications from this line paired with what Spike revealed to Faye about his eyes, gosh...MY FEELINGS. And then, Spike and Faye go to their bickering routine, but this time, it goes on to a touchier topic...Julia, the comparison between Julia and Faye, this compare and contrast, actually sheds a lot of light on Faye's character, who she is as a person because Faye is such a wonderful, wonderful, complex character and it is so beautiful how your dialogue peels open some parts of her and lets the reader find out everything else by themselves slowly. And then "I don't have the sensitivity for this kind of things" is so...perfect, because you're right, you're absolutely right that Faye is not a gentle, subtle person, at least not in the way that Spike loves...in Julia. "Don't be a stranger" made me...my heart ache, it's such a Cowboy Bebop line, you know? I can literally see it in bold italics in the title cards, haha.

The last few lines are beautiful, I love how you brought up Faye's humming again, that shared moment between the two was absolutely precious and indicative of so many things, it's a really imporatnt moment between the two of them, if I ever had to reflect on their relationship, probably second to the scene of him leaving.

SO. Thank you for this lovely fic and for giving me so much bittersweet feelings about my favorite character, Faye and my favorite pair in Cowboy Bebop, Spike/Faye. You write in a beautiful poetic way, that's succint but brings to mind so much vivid imagery. I am definitely adding this to my favorites and I think you're triggering something in me, I think perhaps an inspiration to write as well. Thanks :)
