I love seeing Our Heroes and Our Buffyverse from the outsiders' points of view. Here are five fics that do just that, with quite varied results.

1. Orbital Debris, by [ profile] st_salieri
AKA What the Poor Souls on the ISS Saw During Buffy Comics #34. Hilarious; unmissable.

2. Tentatively, by [ profile] deird1
Sophie from work, watching the life of one Buffy Summers from the outside. Short but sweet; I love any hint of Buffy having friends during S6.

3. The Barter Economy, by [ profile] bobthemole
A half-demon ferryman takes a lovely (if otherworldly and sometimes nonsensical) vampiress up the Amazon. What follows is pure delicious horror in the unironic sense.

4. They Also Serve, by [ profile] rahirah
Sunnydale and Spike/Buffy from the perspective of a waitress at the local diner, written with all Barb's usual flourishes and insights.

5. Unqualified Applicant Need Not Apply, by [ profile] angearia
An average girl gets Called by the Slayer spell. Bummer. This fic would not in any way be a critique of TV casting choices or the view of feminine worth by the culture at large. Nope. Not at all.

Great theme - outsider POV is often so fascinating, and these all run with it brilliantly.

Just popped over to read #3 -- who could resist Dru in the Amazon?
