->I had a stalker.

->I first saw her a week ago. I'd been at my locker, looking over my shoulder for the usual trouble, when I caught her watching me from down the crowded hallway. She was tiny, not even five feet tall, and had milk chocolate skin, short, thick dreadlocks and a round, little face that made her look too young for high school. She wore horn-rim glasses over her sad puppy-dog eyes

A [[Literature/{{Worm}} Worm]] fanfic by [[https://forums.sufficientvelocity.com/members/jmhthe3rd.2184/ JMHthe3rd]] written on the sufficientvelocity forums.

Weaver and Jinx is based on the [[ForWantOfANail premise]] of Taylor getting a friend before her first night out heroing. Together, she and [[{{OC}} Maribel]] become the “Weaver and Jinx”. And set out to solve the gang problem in Brockton Bay.

Noteable for the reversal of several traditional Worm Fanfiction conventions, among which is Taylor defaulting to the voice of reason and temperance to Maribel’s [[BombThrowingAnarchists more militant mentality]].
