Fanfic: Ridtoms Reaper
Credit to Veraciel
Reaper by Ridtom (SpaceBattles discussion thread) is a Worm Alternate Universe Fic running on the premise that Taylor Triggers with the powers of Hei from Darker Than Black.

Needs a Better Description

This fanfic contains examples of the following:

  • Action Girl: Played With; Sophia's personality is in direct contrast with her position. Taylor doesn't want to be this or a Dark Action Girl, she just wants a normal life with her Dad and Nurse.
  • Adaptation Name Change: Browbeat, whose real name we never learn in canon, here has the real name Micheal (sic) Brannigan.
  • Alternate Universe Fic:
    • Apart from the different powerset, one key difference is that Danny was injured badly enough to be bedridden some time in the past.
    • Chapter 4f really shows how much changed for Taylor:
      • Taylor was in the car with Annette when they crashed, causing her trigger years earlier.
      • Emma and Taylor's friendship ended under different circumstances, with Taylor's Emotionless Girl attitude ruining Emma's attempts to help her open up after Annette's death.
      • Let's not forget that Taylor drove Danny into depression.
  • Armor-Piercing Question: Early on Tattletale asks Taylor if she really knows who she is.
  • Badass Minds Think Alike: Taylor and Shadow Stalker do this in chapter 4c against the ABB.
  • Blocking Stops All Damage: Averted in 4c; Taylor takes a few bullets to the armoured gut and notes how painful it is.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Bitch tries to attack Taylor in chapter 3b. She quickly learns why this is a bad idea.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Taylor does this against Bitch in chapter 3b.
  • Dark Action Girl: Taylor and Shadow Stalker fit this to a 'T'; Played With: Taylor doesn't want to be one, but circumstances leave this as her only option (In her mind).
  • Girls with Guns: Taylor has no problem forgoing her powers in favor of letting off a few rounds when it suits her. Bakuda takes it Up to Eleven with her Tinker tech Grenade Launcher.
  • Grievous Harm with a Body: In chapter 4c Aegis uses one ABB member to bludgeon another.
  • He is Not My Boyfriend: Everyone thinks that Taylor and Grue are in a relationship, and Taylor keeps having to deny it.
  • Lightning Bruiser: For a street level character, Reaper is quite strong and tough, extremely fast and agile, and capable of electrocuting people to boot.
  • Little Miss Badass: Vista is right there alongside her teammates when Bakuda's army attacks.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • Starting from chapter 1c Taylor has been having nightmares from Hei's point of view.
    • Poor Regent just cannot have a clean couch
    • Grue seems to be crushing on Taylor a little - she's oblivious.
  • Neck Lift: Taylor does this to Bakuda in chapter 4c.
  • Off the Rails: The bank job gets interrupted by Bakuda attacking.
  • Punch Clock Hero: Taylor doesn't want to be a hero out of the goodness of her heart. Instead, she's doing it so she can get money for Danny's treatment.
  • Rage Breaking Point: In chapter 4e Taylor tries to reason with the one speaking to her, but blows up when the other brings up her mother.
  • Shock and Awe: This is Taylor's main power.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In Interlude 2 a mook who encounters Taylor sneaking around wisely declares that he's just hallucinating "seeing Mimes" and gets out of the way.
    • Interlude 5 has a merc named Karin "The Wind".
  • Wham Episode: Chapter 4e, where Taylor's being a villain is discovered by Sierra, and Taylor breaks down.
