    Pretty funny stuff. Some responses had me chuckling, a few were a bit odd--but if you have nothing better to do, check this out!

    I give it a 4/5.

    Here is a preview of the first bit of them--gets better and better:

    Lol, very, very predictable, but decent anyhow, and somewhat cute due to the last lines.

    4/5.

    Taliath, you bastard, update Silver Memories :(

    It's kind of amusing for the first half, but it tends to get a bit repetitive (read:very). Still, reasonably entertaining. 3/5

    It was very... cute. Not that it's a bad thing, though. 4/5

    In a town near you. Maybe.
    Not too bad I guess, it killed a little time. It did get kind of repetitive though, but it's better then some things I read.

    I agree. I think 101 is a bit long, and there are only so many original responses.

    We all knew what the last one would be.

    3-4/5 for making me snicker.

    Same rules apply to this as does the rules for the list Psychosama posted.

    If it had been a fic, or even several ficlettes, written surrounding each point, itd been better. As it is? Dry and boring.

    2/5 because some were amusing.

    Ooh, tough call, really... It's kind of funny, I suppose, but it's not VERY funny, certainly. But it's not long enough for anything specifically good, so I don't think I can't give it anymore than a 2.5/5, 3 tops. On second thought, it is good enough for a small oneshot - nothing more.

    Um... well I liked it but its not worshipping quality. 3/5

    Last one should have been "Avada Kedrava." Would have been an odd twist. Though now that I think about it, would that count as being cliched?

    It has potential if it was, say, developed into a series of short ficlets, but as it is, it's kind of.... Meh.

    3/5.

    eh.. It was ok. Not great but it did have some funny responses. I don't get the crying part or why she said yes at the end. It's quite hard to know who is speaking and some answers didn't quite go with "Will you go out with me Evans?" 2/5 at best.

    It isn't enough of a fic to be bad. It's good for what it is, but what it is isn't very good.

    3/5

    Agreed, deathinapinkboa. I honestly think that this author should have put it in chapters. It would have made much more sense

    They were funny until you get to the last ones. Too fluffy and no backstory.

    3.5/5 because it made me chuckle.

    This is recycle bin worthy. I'll give it a 3/5 because some of them did make me laugh, and some of them were creative. However, it would of done much better if it were an actual fic/story.

    And I'm glad to see this:

    The ending though a bit fluffy, and expected was still good I thought though.
