    One of the few stories I've read that feature a Ghost!Harry. It is well written, and I didn't notice any grammatical errors or anything else that detracted from my immersion in it. On the romance aspect, there is pretty much none (just the way I like it) so don't let it put you off an otherwise extremely enjoyable read.

    I think this would be a great addition to the DLP library.

    5/5 from me

    3 out of 5.

    It wasnt all that bad and served as a good waste of time, but nothing really special. Found a few errors in spelling, mostly letter omissions. Still decent writing I suppose.

    I like this one. It looks like it would be a good prologue to something. Whether that something is the events that caused Harry to head back in time and remove his core or the events that follow the events of the one-shot directly, it doesn't really matter.

    That said, this feels like it's just a prologue. It was good, but not good enough alone to really belong in the library. 3/5

    I agree, it doesn't have the completeness of a one-shot, it feels like there needs to be more.

    That said, it wasn't bad. 3.5/5

    It is a good idea or anyone to adopt and twist to his own fancy. There were some spelling mistakes. It's not a oneshot and nothing is resolved yet, it's more of a plot bunny.

    If it were a oneshot I would have given it a 4/5.

    But as a plot bunny, you're not going to get more than 3/5 out of me.

    Reads very incomplete, errors, and then the AN arrogance. It's a plot bunny up for adoption.. 2/5

    Passed the time, didn't really pick up my attention though. Felt like a kind of filler for a longer story. 2/5

    Liked it as a fragment, sadly that's probably all it will ever be. 3/5 for the good bunnie

    A very interesting take on Harry. I have never seen a well written Ghost!Harry, and this idea of the author is one of the best I have encountered. Full marks from me.

    It would have been an interesting and probably excellent story.

    Still, it's good, and maybe someone will continue this (as the author left it for adoption).
