The stories I read were usually from books..anything online, was only fanfiction. However, recently I'd gotten to reading the top of nosleeps on reddit and I was very surprised at the quality of writing (dalek_emperor, bloodworth, 1000vultures, etc). That made me more receptive to reading original fiction online, and Worm was very much recommended. I decided to give it a try and I am blown away by it.
If there are any editors or publishers out there, Worm is a gem to be picked up!
If you like dark and gritty stories about super-powered humans, give it a go!
I finished the story!
Holy crap, what a ride!
Thank you Wildbow for an amazing story!
Holy hecking heck, this is the best piece on Deviantart! The detail and coloration the insects is incredible and the expressions is so fitting for Taylor; subtle discomfort or fear mixed in with calm, or forced calm, her second best trademark state of being after godhood.
I really want to print this as a poster for my good friend for his birthday. He introduced me to Worm and it is among both of our favorite reads.
Can I please get your permission to do that and would you kindly explain how I can support/donate/pay for it? I'm new here, having JUST made an account with deviantart so I could send this.
Maybe you can contribute some... the guys at www.reddit.com/r/Parahumans/ (careful, lots of spoilers) really appreciate any fan art and Wildbow himself checks out the sub pretty often.
And if this is how you see her, even though she describes herself as homely and scrawny all over the place (that I remember, been a while), wow. This is what you call seeing the inner beauty and... I loved how her DARK CLOUD made her hard to target, because you just couldn't tell WHERE she was within it <3
