Worm www.parahumans.wordpress.com Web serial, updates twice a week (Tuesdays and Saturdays). Taylor is cruelly bullied at school, ignored or tormented by her peers, and unassisted by the school's staff. At the end of her rope, she holds on to one thing - her recently gained superpowers and her dream of joining the ranks of Brockton Bay's superheroes. Things prove a little more complicated than that. It's not only the fact that her power is much less conventional than shooting out laser beams from her hands or super strength: Taylor quickly discovers that there are a lot of gray areas in a world she previously thought of as black and white. As she gets caught up in the politics and head games, the information warfare, rivalries and individual factions, she finds that things don't necessarily go the way she hoped. Increasingly hard to write a synopsis that doesn't spoil anything, so I'm sticking pretty close to what I've got up elsewhere. Hi Spacebattlers - I'm Worm's author, and I started the series a year ago. A longtime reader mentioned that I should post here since I got a flood of new readers from a link he made in one general recommendations thread. The story's been really well reviewed thus far. You can see the reviews begin halfway down the page here with some minor (and one or two major) spoilers contained therein: Worm's Webfictionguide Page. The story's going strong, the readership is currently booming, and a bunch of stuff related to the story is popping up: a wiki, fanart, a fledgling facebook page, a tv-tropes page (which I admittedly started) and more stuff to the point that I can't always keep track of it. Selling points people keep bringing up are creative powers, attention to details, the gray and gray (or black and gray) morality of the setting, the depth of characters and the compelling, fast paced plot. There's a fair bit of content there, too. Three to four books worth. Interested? You can start here. Due to the way I wrote Worm, not letting myself go back & edit early stuff (I'll explain if anyone's interested), the first few chapters are maybe a little stiff, but it does improve fairly quickly.
