Fanfic / nimrod.

Go To

Brockton Bay's biggest gang is Empire Eighty Eight, a Neo Nazi gang that requires you hurt a member of a minority as an initiation. On a lark, Hookwolf attacks a synagogue on Yom Kippur. Charlotte Morgenstern, a fresh trigger, decides to get revenge. Nimrod is about what happens to her and the city around her as she does it.

This fic provides examples of:

  • Ascended Extra: Charlotte is a very minor character in Worm, whose Jewishness is alluded to for exactly one line. Melanie Fitts is never named in canon, only in one of the earlier drafts.
  • Advertisement:
  • Asshole Victim: Most of Charlotte's targets are unabashed Nazis.
  • Broken Pedestal: Melanie Fitts proves to be this to Charlotte.
  • The Corrupter: Calvert can be seen as this.
  • Karma Houdini: Coil and Charlotte both end the fic with no punishment for the mass murders they committed, save however they punish themselves.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Charlotte has a very minor version of this in the omake ending.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: The plot of the fic.
