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 [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri
post-series
AKA What the Poor Souls on the ISS Saw During Buffy Comics #34. Hilarious; unmissable.

2. Tentatively, by [livejournal.com profile] deird1
S6
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 [livejournal.com profile] bobthemole
post-stuff
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 [livejournal.com profile] rahirah
Barbverse
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 [livejournal.com profile] angearia
post-Chosen
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.
