Some favorite year 2014 stories that - in one way or another - are about point of view. (Or at least I consider them to be.)
Any bad English in summaries is mine and shouldn't be blamed on fic authors.

Illusions (Angel, Spike, OC, PG-13) by [livejournal.com profile] ash_carpenter. Brilliant outsider POV story, showing that in Sunnydale getting it almost right is never enough. (And you read it right - ash wrote PG-13 gen story, her hand slipped.)

Wish You Were Here (Instead of Me) by ChristinaK (Ensemble, PG-13). Another terrific outsider POV. It's year 2014 and Sunnydale Class of '99 is having a reunion.

Special Delivery by [livejournal.com profile] dragonyphoenix (Willy the bartender, Buffy, Giles, PG-13). It's always fascinating to see Buffy through some minor character's eyes, and dragonyphoenix got Willy's voice absolutely perfect.

Vision of Us by [livejournal.com profile] pickamix (Willow/Angel/Spike, R). Beauty is such a relative term, especially when it is end of the world...

The Watcher Who Still Watches by [livejournal.com profile] katleept (Ensemble, PG-13). Giles is dead. How does it feel for the people who knew him?

Hey, you included one of my stories! Thanks!

And Illusions is excellent. I'd never read Wish You Were Here but it is fun. ;-)

Thanks very much, honey!

Thanks for this list. Illusions is great, and I just read Special Delivery, which I liked a whole lot too. I'm going to have to save the longer stories for some other time.

Thanks! I snagged that icon because it will go really well with my Tea vid (when I get around to posting it on LJ).

And yes, it's a long winter, but the Christmas holidays are over and I have no clue where I will find the time now to read all the great fics being recced here. (Let alone to finish that vid I'd hoped to work on during the holidays -- a chance I completely ruined for myself by getting an LJ account :-)
