So over in a pan-fandom RPG called milliways_bar, a character died, and his in-case-of-death letter to Spike of Cowboy Bebop read as follows:
Spike, I never had the balls to tell you this, but I figure you're dead and the ship you keep going to is your afterlife. You ain't ready for it yet, but someday all the bits and pieces'll be there and you and [different fandom character]'ll fly off to whatever's in store for you.
If the ending actually has something to do with that, I think that might be interesting and worth watching the important episodes leading up to it. Anyone care to comment?
