These are very different fics, from hilarious to angsty there's something for everyone, but they are all good for a quick read, all between ~600 and ~2,300 words. All rated PG13 and less.

Requiem for a Poodle by zabjade
A week after Chosen, Buffy thinks about unlikely heroes. Angsty, bittersweet, but wonderfully written. 590 words.

Is This Fight for Real? by tbd
This takes place roughly in the Season 10 Comic, but you don't need to know anything other than Xander and Spike live together. Dawn, Willow and Buffy all share an apartment. Most importantly Buffy and Spike are together. You will however need more of a knowledge of late 90s early 2000 teen CW/UPN shows. Fluffy, funny. 2,000 words.

Tears of Heaven by Sigyn
Of course there has to be something of Sigyn. It's all so great what she writes that it's hard to choose. This one's a  missing scene as so often, this time in S7 before Touched, and it's bittersweet, powerful stuff. 1,900 words.

The One Where Angel Saves the Day by [livejournal.com profile] sunalso
Sometimes the PTB pick the right Champion.
This one's been written for the April Fools Challenge, and it's by Sunalso, that kind of says enough. It's hilarious! ~1,900 words.

You Came Back by [livejournal.com profile] flightoffancy32
In a rec list of mine, there has to be a S6 rec. It's untypically un-angsty for me, though (but no fluff) - set around Hells Bells, Buffy and Spike at Xander and Anya's wedding reception.  2,300 words

Ooh, I really like that first one. It's so sad it brought tears to my eyes. Well done.

I only read two of those, so I will need to check out the rest.

(And yeah, I remember being left with a big lump in my throat after reading Requiem for a Poodle.)

Yum. Good list. :)
I agree completely about "Requiem for a Poodle"!
"Tears of Heaven" is so good I can barely handle it! It was on my radar, but I somehow hadn't gotten around to reading. Silly, silly me. Thanks for the nudge!
