    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

    these are good, although they seemed to be declining in quality a bit. the ctulthu one and the second one were excellent. 4.6/5 , but rounded up.

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