How long before something made me snap?''

** It's not particularly obvious InUniverse but WordOfGod confirms that Kenta never triggered into Lung, which is why Taylor is an OutsideContextVillain even before she starts testing the uses of her power.

** Empire Eighty-Eight is described as essentially running crime in Brockton Bay for over a decade thanks to the lack of the Azn Bad Boys to counterbalance them. Assembled at full strength, they manage to put on a better show than either the Wards, local Protectorate, or New Wave against Taylor, nearly managing to kill her.

Added DiffLines:

* RedHerring: Legend, among others, mistakes Taylor for a ''burgeoning Endbringer'', and see her as heralding the end of their lives as they know it. Because parahumans everywhere will automatically be suspect now that (they think) they know the origin of Behemoth, Leviathan, and the Simurgh. The thought of becoming such monsters is also demoralizing.

There are many fanfictions for the {{Literature/Worm}} fandom, some good some bad. Most run on some combination of three principles- [[FixFic fixing what went wrong in the canon continuity]], RuleOfCool, and RevengeFic. Due to the nature of these three catagories, it is unsurprising that so many are mediocre.
