    Title: Flying (& other Scenes)
    Author: CheddarTrek
    Rating: T
    Status: Collection of oneshots
    Library Category: General
    Summary: "A series of unrelated scenes from various POVs (Harry features in every other one). Begins with "Flying," in which Harry learns that there are still a few things able to challenge him in the air, and goes from there."

    Amazing set of oneshots, first with Harry and the most underused character in the entire series, second with rare example of well done Luna and third - very interesting idea about prophecies. Unfortunately currently there is no fourth one, but I hope that it will change in the near future.

    Excellent characterization, interesting idea, great humour.

    All already appeared on DLP but anyway everybody should read/reread it.

    Aberforth is next -- his scene/story is outlined and will probably come out to around 2.5k. Setting is around early HBP and Albus drops by the pub.

    Harry will be after that (alternating) but not sure what I'll write there yet. Probably combat of some kind, perhaps a competitive duel.

    After that I plan to rewrite my first drabble from a different POV -- that will be a very short one, probably less than 1000 words (the original was like 250).

    No plans beyond that, but those are the next three.

    Wait, I assumed this was already in the library?

    Awesome either way and it belongs in the library for sure.

    Excellent couple of One-shots. They were well written and I enjoyed reading them. I though that the characterizations were spot on with canon, I really thought he nailed that aspect.

    I particularly enjoy the first one-shot. 5/5 for me

    These oneshots function well as snippets that happened yet weren't mentioned in canon.
    The first two 'shots were fluffy though the third was somewhat ominous in retrospect.

    I vote it 3.5/5

    This should really be in the library. Excellent set of oneshots all round. 4.5/5 from me.

    @Vengeful Astartes: CheddarTrek, the author, is a lady not a guy.

    A few of my favorite oneshots, especially the first one. Light-hearted and very engrossing, I remember wishing for more by the author when I first read it. Quite surprised to see it in Neglected fics; and not the library, so decided to post my review too.

    For me, it's a 4.5/5 or even a full 5.
