Fan Fiction

The crew of the Bebop

The crew of the Bebop

I’ve been writing in this blog my thoughts on Cowboy Bebop the series and the movie. Not happy with the fanfic I’ve seen written so far, with a little encouragement, I decided to write my own.

NOTE: I am uploading all of these to AO3 so you can read them there also AND enjoy the fabulous stories others have written as well. 🙂 Those works that have already been migrated are marked with an asterisk (*).

I put up this page to list the fics in the order in which the stories take place.

These stories deal almost exclusively with that period of time before the events in Asteroid Blues (session #1 of the series). I want to know about Spike and Jet’s early years together and that’s what I’m concentrating on. These are turning out to be telling a continuous story. Sometimes there will be a reference to a character or event in an earlier fic. Sorry about that.

There may be stories written that will fit between the events of one fic and another and those will be inserted into their proper places, with the posting date – in case someone reads them all and a new one is written, they can quickly find what’s new. “Coda” is the end of the storyline, following up “Aftermath Twostep”. “Pandemonium” is the beginning (unless I come up with something that takes place before it – not likely, but you never know). As I add new stories, they will generally be added immediately before “Memories.”

Each fic has a link back to the blog posting that introduces it in case one is moved to comment. As always, comments are not only welcome, they are invited and encouraged.

One word of advice though – please read the fics before reading the comments on the blog, as comments are loaded with spoilers. 🙂

I cleaned this page up a little. Assume with all of the stories here that there is some “language.” There will be the occasional “STRONG language.” I don’t write sexually charged content, so there won’t be any advisories on that score. If there is anything else readers should know about, like “graphic violence” it will be noted here.

I’ve added a new section at the end called “Dribs ‘n’ Drabbles” that gives a home to random Cowboy Bebop “scenes” if you will, that don’t or won’t fit into a story. It’s just random stuff that I thought I’d share. Scroll down if interested. They’re short like “Pandemonium” and don’t really fit in anywhere. Hope you enjoy them!
