Loved it, almosts all of them are from very good to excellent, but the Chess and Harry baby-sitter are epic. Well, it is Pers, so high quality is guaranteed, be it in fics or in comments here. And then, there is Dobby Yoda.

Please be sure to link to the first chapter of any fic, independent stories per chapter or not.
Will rate after I've read a few.

Edit: Okay I read through up to the Lovecraft oneshot, which is by far my favorite of them yet, and they're all well worth the read. I did skim through a few but that was simply because they were a premise I didn't have any real interest in. Even so this easily rates a 4/5 for me, thanks for throwing it up here.

I recently read the Chess story (completely apart from it being here), and it was good times. I've read at least 3-4 of the others at some point.

Overall the quality is high for the ones I've read. 4.5/5
Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. But I rather believe than time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment because they'll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important how we lived. After all, Number One, we're only mortal.

These are good stories. My favorite are Wizard's Chess, Negotiations and Cold Case.
