Very unique take on Taylor in the S9
effulgent_dawn | 9 months ago

This fic answers the question of how much morally grey can darken before turning completely black. And the answer is pretty damn far; Taylor is stuck in one terrible situation after another in traditional Worm fashion, but with subplots and twists along the way that yank the reader into the yarn.

Original altpower scenario
Nemrut | 10 months ago

The premise is rather original as far as altpower ideas go and Taylor's struggle is compelling even if it never really quite feels like her. I get why but it creates a disconnect regardless. Then there is the matter that while interesting, it is also not really that fun to read and there is definitely a way to write this without it just being a bit of a downer. It's interesting but despite the heavy subject matter, it is also not particularly memorable, weirdly enough. There are stories less original that I remember far better, even though I've even reread this when its most recent update was posted.

Super dark

Characters all feel like they should; they have the same "vibe", although the change in Taylor's power has massive ripple effects.
