    It's a series of oneshots, thus I labelled it as complete even though it is labelled as WiP on FFA.

    Chapter 5, and the note at the end, were funny.
    Chapter 2 had potential as well, and if anyone knows of another fic along those lines, I wouldn't mind a link.

    Chapter 1 was just the intro, Chapter 3 was good, but isn't really DLP material and Chapter 4 was amusing, though had hints if H/Hr.

    I'll give it a 4/5, because some of the plot ideas kept there could make for good stories if followed up further.

    Its a good fic, hints of H/Hr in one of the scenes, with every young man's dream in the same one. I actually laughed at the last one, but you'll have to read it to find out why. :D

    4/5 because its funny, but not in all of them.

    Ah the last one was the best.

    Priceless.
    There are some things that money cant buy, for everything else there's plot bunnies.

    I really liked both 2 and 5 (The Last Wizard Standing and Finite Totalus). Enjoyable, humorous, and just a nice little wrapper for whatever drabbles Crys feels like writing. Not exactly a traditional fic for those looking for a plot but these 'journal entries' are good for a laugh or way to kill a few minutes.

    4/5 seems about right.

    Not bad. A few decent ideas and a few average ones.

    His writing style was a bit suspect. Yes he's literate and everything... it's just, as if he was trying too hard to make Harry's inner dialogue interesting or amusing. He failed most of the time.

    3.8/5

    Agreed but then again, this is only plot bunny territory - I wasn't expecting the most amazing and polished piece.

    As it is, I enjoyed these, but imo they should be left as they are - one-shots. I don;t think any of the ones so far could be developed into full length or even short length pieces. Apart from maybe an NC-17 follow up to 'Last Man Standing' simply because that could be hot.

    I liked the Sacking of Vernon Dursley, Finite Totalus and Happy Halloween. 4/5

    Chapter 2, as some people have said is a good idea. A full story would be great. Chapter 5 was great, especially the last line. :D Chapter 3 was alright and chapter 4 was slightly amusing. If you add more one shots, it would also be nice.

    4/5 overall

    Just a note:

    The Humor C2 is up to date, but I cannot add this fic and a few others due to obvious reasons.

    Decent. It's not a great one, but there is amusement.

    I especially liked the last 'man' standing one. Cliche, but pretty well done.

    Sarcastic, dryish writing style.

    I find watching the grass grow more funny. No really.

    Bumped, because this story has been updated with new one-shots.

    The latest chapter is pretty cheesy: one of the more common and stereotypical cliche 'Elemental' angles is used, and I really didn't like the time-frame/general setting of this chapter. It also feels more like a concept than an actual story.

    I'm not sure if the previous chapter 'Sever' is a recent update like this one, or the last of the 'old' series of updates - it's also been continued by another author over at Potter Heads Anonymous.

    Although I find the concept pretty unrealistic and character breaking, it sort of feels like a guilty pleasure read for me.

    The hosting sort of sucks though, because you have to own an account there to read anything good - is there a 'public' DLP account set up on there for stories with these limitations?

    EDIT: So I tried the spin-off story - don't bother, it's as shit as My Immortal.
