Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.Abreaction by Jace911.
Synopsis: Abreaction has the same basic premise as Here Be Dragons, so Taylor gets Lung's powers instead of her canon ones, and one day she snaps. The story starts after she's been captured by the PRT, and explores just how thoroughly broken Taylor is instead of focusing on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge. It also manages to be even more depressing than Worm ever was, which takes some doing.
Synopsis: Lung's gang is attacked by an insane, giggly robot. The fight attracts the attention of the Protectorate. Before anyone can do anything, though, other robots of the same design shut her down and spirit her away. Who is their mysterious creator?
Robinton's one complaint: Clockwork's power is, frankly, overpowered. It should be 2-4 powers, not 1. To contrast, everything else: Clockwork gets pitted against enough opponents to largely make up for her overpoweredness, the story has twice its fair share of CMOHs and CMOAs, and it recently got readers to cheer for Armsmaster.
Synopsis: Billed as a sequel to Worm, however Taylor is not on Earth Aleph, but on a different unexplored Earth instead. Capes have only started to emerge very recently, and Taylor is trying to stay out of it and lead a normal life. Emphasis on "trying."
Synopsis: In many realities the Undersiders' wish for a Tinker never gets granted. In this one, however, they get something that may or may not be even better - a Mad ScientistTin Tyrant who is most definitely not DOOM!
Synopsis: Panacea-centric POV, no pairings. Taylor gets a transfer to Arcadia, and meets Amy on the day of the bank robbery. They strike out as independent heroes, Taylor applying the full force of her munchkinry to Amy's powers.
Synopsis: Taylor starts off with a fully functional Queen Administrator shard, with the added ability to copy and "manage" knowledge and skills present in others. Instead of going the villain route, Taylor decides to become a Rogue, dedicated to the restoration of Brockton Bay. Taylor is overpowered, but has self-inflicted chains in the form of her morality and hatred of bullies. However, Taylor being Taylor, this doesn't particularly hinder her efforts.
Synopsis: Taylor didn't have any idea who this strange girl was, but she was grateful for the ice cream all the same, and the kind words even more. At the darkest period of her life, Taylor has a chance encounter with a stranger calling herself 'Lisa'. ATTACH. GROW.
Synopsis: Looking Glass is a Master-class parahuman with a superpower that allows him to summon a female version of himself as a spectral minion. A Psychic Link allows the two to share information with each other instantaneously and he primarily uses his abilities as a scout of for the rest of his group. Together, they deal with small-time crooks, low-level parahuman crimes, and... paperwork. But Glass is keeping a secret from the others... his powers aren't quite what they appear to be...

Synopsis: Taylor Hebert's shard is the administrator. Let's see what happens if it looked at administration differently...
Spoilers and Clinchers: In this story, Taylor Hebert is a Striker/Trump, Power Manager. Taylor's Administration Shard allows her, by touch, to take or give power to parahumans. Seraviel is also known for issuing a "Beta Call" in the form of a Shout-Out to a serial, book or film, that is no less awesome than the chapter to the series.
Synopsis: After a particularly bad day, Danny triggers as Earth Bet's worst Tinker. But even a bad Tinker has potential no mundane inventor can match, and when sinister forces come calling, Danny must fight to protect his and Taylor's way of life.
Synopsis: You know that one gamer, the one who breaks into every house and turns the place inside-out in their search for loot? That adventurer who slaughters everything in their path for XP? What if the events of Worm were a group of friends simply playing a pen & paper RPG? What if the protagonist could best be described as one such adventurer?
Synopsis: Post-Leviathan, Taylor is living in a shelter, angry and adrift. A chance encounter puts her on a different course as she struggles to correct previous mistakes, and find a place for herself in this nebulous world of heroes and villains. (AU, post 8.07)
Synopsis: You can do a lot with determination. For instance, your commitment to justice when you're shoved into a locker could attract the attention of a planet-sized machine god, who then decides to gift you with a brand-new machine body with all sorts of cool powers. But there's always a price for power. Always.

Synopsis: Taylor Hebert, She Who Skitters in Shadows, is Earth Bet’s first Abyssal Exalt. Yes, that’s one of the nasty kinds. Good thing she’s such a nice person, eh? Chapters come in 5-7 separate thousand word installments, and six chapters have been posted.
Status: Dead. The author did thoughtfully post an outline of things that could have been, covering the events up to "just after Leviathan".
Synopsis: At the end, instead of the one who canonically found her, Taylor is instead found by the Unconquered Sun and granted a Solar Exaltation. Now, with the aid of some unlikely allies, she will set the worlds right again.
Synopsis: After Taylor returns from Yamatai, she just wants her life to go back to normal. The PRT, on the other hand, wants to know how she wound up killing over 400 people and walked away with only a few scars.
Notes: AU for both game and Worm. Shadow Stalker is a little saner than in canon, emphasis on "little".
Synopsis: A crossover between Mass Effect and Worm, with an age-adjusted and dimensionally-displaced Shepard stuck in Brockton Bay. While out collecting 'salvage' from a local gang safehouse, he happens across Lung and the costumed (but as yet unnamed) Taylor midfight, and decides to help out. This looks to be the start of a beautiful friendship...and maybe, something more?
Synopsis: Are we all just insects, blindly squirming through life? Will we all die tomorrow when an Endbringer shows up? Who’s the person thinking this? Who’s the person reading this? Hell, who’s the person writing this?
Synopsis: Worm is a story containing Superheroes! Angst! It gets worse! Villains! Grief! It gets worse! Warlords! Bullies! Monsters! It gets even worse! Politics! Evil Conspiracies! Face-heel turns! The End of the World! And Doing the Wrong Things for Right Reasons! ... Gah, that sucks. Let's rewind to the start, add a little something more. Stir thoroughly, bake, and serve. Mmm... cake...
