Ajar actually means "slightly" open. Fun though.

How nice to be first and not have to read others. Some others.
This was a fun teaser , but I missed two which is not too bad. Thanks for posting this one.

Here is my comment on the teaser:
Other "beheaded" teasers have come pretty easy to me, this one proved to be a bit more difficult. Nicely done.

Though I enjoy all the Behead series, these ones, in which each answer begins with a different letter are much more challenging than your alphabetical series. Both are great, but I prefer the challenge.

Missed preserve/reserve completely. Got shard/hard with the hint. The other 6 easily on my own. Fun!
