Fanfic / Worm Grand Order

Go To

Worm Grand Order is a Worm and Fate/Grand Order Crossover by Simple Scribe.

The story starts with Taylor Hebert trapped in the locker....and then she kicks her way out, followed by Mash, while grumbling about finding more Saint Quartz. Once she realizes just where she is, though, she's ecstatic.

This fanfic contains examples of:

  • Adult Fear: Taylor's father Danny admits that he can't help but be scared for Taylor whenever she goes into battle, even though she has become so powerful and has so many Servants.
  • Advertisement:
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: Most Earth Bet inhabitants don't believe in magic and insist Taylor and her Servants' abilities are simply science they haven't discovered yet. Even Hero, who is now a Servant, doesn't believe in magic.
  • Back from the Dead: Technically, all Servants are this, but later, Taylor manages to summon Earth Bet's deceased Tinker known as Hero as a Caster.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Do not call Taylor's servants projections. While she never loses her temper, she ends up ripping her front door off its hinges when Armsmaster says this.
    • While she's calmed down about that later, admitting that they would look like projections to the casual observer, she is furious when she finds out that Team A is missing, especially since that could mean being separated from them.
  • Bigger on the Inside: Taylor is implied to have used a bounded field to make her house larger than its exterior would suggest so that all of her servants could spend time in it.
  • Advertisement:
  • Cordon Bleugh Chef: Semiramis, if only because she can make poison out of everything. Case in point, she knocks out Amakusa entirely by accident with some chocolate she made for him.
  • Dare to Be Badass: Nope! When Taylor showed up to the heroes who were about to fight against Leviathan, she outright told them to go home, back to their families and loved ones, and leave the battle to her and the Heroic Spirits she brought with her.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?:
    • In the flashback in Chapter 5, Taylor did this to Goetia at the End of Part 1.
    • Taylor and her Servants do this in Chapter 10 by killing Leviathan, one of the Endbringers.
    • In flashbacks, Taylor had defeated several Servants in hand to hand combat.
    • In chapter 16, Taylor and her Servants kill Behemoth. Hero lands the killing blow.
  • Doorstopper: Relatively speaking, but chapter five is thirty one thousand words in length. For reference, the longest chapter prior to this one was about 6k words in length. Chapter 10 as well earns this title.

  • Establishing Series Moment: The very chapter has Taylor busting out of the locker, yelling for more Saint Quartz, showing this story is going to be quite a bit wackier than canon. Also doubles as an Establishing Character Moment for Taylor, who is somewhat wackier but also far more well adjusted than in canon.
  • Experienced Protagonist: By the time the story starts, Taylor had already completed the entire Grand Order storyline up to Epic of Remnant. She actually considers coming home to be a vacation.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Blasto does not understand why Taylor has her Servants stop disasters and save people, saying if he was in her place, he would have simply retreated to Chaldea's world and left Earth Bet to its fate. When Taylor says it is because Earth Bet is her father's world, Blasto says just bring him to Chaldea's world.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Carmilla captures the Three Blasphemies and starts torturing them. Since they can resurrect as long as one of them remains, they'll be in her care for a really long time.
  • Fish out of Water: Hero's knowledge of being a Heroic Spirit is incomplete, so he's completely confused by his new life as a Servant and needs to have everything explained to him.
  • Funny Background Event: Before Taylor closes the door to her house just enough to have a private conversation with Miss Militia and Armsmaster, the duo briefly get to see, in order, the kid servants chasing Fou, a servant drinking contest (which Cu is winning), several servants playing a fighting game, the Neros and Lizzies fighting each other using the giant Mecha-Eli Chans as arenas, all of the different forms of Arturia engaged in an eating contest while being cheered on by the Knights of the Round Table, and Gorgon and Lobo doing something (the narration cuts out before we learn what the last two were doing).
  • Gods Need Prayer Badly: Hero meets a god nicknamed the Old Man who explains that he is from a religion that had been long forgotten on Earth Bet. No one on Earth Bet has any faith, so gods like him are on their last legs and will disappear soon.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Though Taylor and her Servants save the day a lot and killed two of the Endbringers, some people fear them for being so powerful and the Protectorate thinks they are loose cannons and are desperately trying to find a way to take them down.
  • Honor Before Reason: No matter how much Da Vinci or others tell her to stay back and let the Servants handle it, Taylor insists on fighting on the front lines.
  • How Is That Even Possible?: Hero, who wasn't summoned yet when they defeated Leviathan, asks Da Vinci how they penetrated its flesh and extracted its core, considering its body is infinitely dense the deeper it goes, meaning it would take more energy than the universe can hold to penetrate. He doesn't believe her when she says they used a wish from a Holy Grail to change the rules and make it possible and declares that he'll figure out the science behind the feat later.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: The Endbringers, of all things, were severely holding back against the capes of Earth Bet. When Taylor and the Servants entered the mix, they decided to stop sandbagging.
  • I Can't Sense Their Presence: For some reason, none of the Capes with mind reading, empathic, or clairvoyant powers can detect Taylor, though they can detect her Servants. This may be tied to her revenant status.
  • Keep the Reward: Taylor and her Servants travel around the world capturing or killing criminals and other threats. They don't collect any bounties, telling the people to use the money for charities, preservation of historical sites, etc. One time, Taylor agreed to collect a bounty so that she and her Servants could go gambling in Vegas.
  • Late-Arrival Spoiler: The first chapter alone spoils that fact that Mash is fused with Galahad and her shield is the embodiment of the Round Table. Chapter three spoils the fact that Parahuman powers come from shards of alien creatures called entities, of which Scion is one.
  • Love You and Everybody: Taylor declares to Altera that she loves her. When Altera is shocked by this, Taylor then lists all her Servants and says she loves them too.
  • Major Injury Underreaction: Jack the Ripper randomly stabs Taylor in the side. She just laughs it off.
  • Meaningful Rename: Hero examines Gáe Bolg and finds runes than when translated, reveal the spear had been renamed several times.
    Heed me. I speak for the favor of the Tuatha Dé. For the eyes of Danu to witness and none else. Grant me the strength to pierce the Fomorian hide of Balor. Allow me the strength to wretch his sight of the Scorching Sun. I ask of thee to reforge mine spear. With the blessing of the Witch of Shadows. With the curse of the Evil Eye. This spear was once named the Spear of Pissar, Areadbhair, Ibar Alai Fhidbaidha. It was named Gáe Bolg when given to me. It shall be rechristened when thrown from me. I name this weapon, Lúin Celtchair in honor of my father's past deeds. May it slay the target I have marked as it had for Lugh's slaying of the Smiter.​
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Chapter 4 sees Taylor going on a shopping trip....with eighteen of her servants. The results are rather amusing.
  • Named by Democracy: The media quickly calls Taylor "Simulacrum" due to thinking her Servants are her projections.
  • No Need for Names: The Old Man says that his people did not use names since everyone knew each other.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome:
    • Taylor and her Servants take down several S-Class threats within a week of arriving on Bet.
    • In a Meta Sense, Taylor went through the WHOLE story of Fate/Grand Order up to Epic of Remnant BEFORE returning to Earth Bet, with no one else aware of it, since only a few hours passed by there while Taylor spent 3 whole years in Chaldea.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Armsmaster actually acts somewhat casual around Miss Militia after the attempt to interview Taylor went south due to the sheer absurdity of what happened. Miss Militia actually mistakes him for making a joke at one point.
  • Open Mouth, Insert Foot: Miss Militia ironically does this when she allows Armsmaster to ask Taylor if she is aware that her house is filled with projections, unaware of the nature of the Servants and how close Taylor is to them.
  • Power Misidentification: Most of the Earth Bet inhabitants think that Taylor's power is to create projections, beings from her imagination, rather than her actually summoning Heroic Spirits as her Servants.
  • Pretender Diss: Billy the Kid defeats a bunch of train robbers and learns their leader was also named Billy. He says in disgust that they were not real outlaws.
  • Pull Yourself Down the Spear: In a flashback, Taylor did this when Berserker Cu Chulainn stabbed her with Gae Bolg so she could get close enough to kill him.
  • Reality Ensues: Shortly after Hero is summoned, he decides to wander the city. Since he was a well respected Cape who was killed, he causes pandemonium as he gets swarmed by citizens and reporters. Taylor rescues him by using a Perception Filter spell to escape their notice and points out they will have to slowly ease him back into the public eye.
  • The Reveal:
    • Earth Bet has no mana and nobody has Magic Circuits. The reason why Taylor is able to use magecraft is because she implanted a Holy Grail inside her body.
    • Hero finds out that because his legend is so new, he only qualified to be a Heroic Spirit by combining with Arthur C. Clarke. He slowly starts getting Arthur's memories.
    • Taylor had already been killed during her adventures in the Singularities and was brought back as a revenant by Ereshkigal. This is why she seems so implacable and can shrug off any injuries. However, despite all of her Servants and her Holy Grails sustaining her, her body will eventually give out and die by the time she is thirty. She is okay with this and simply wants to make sure Earth Bet is safe and can continue after she is gone.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Coil decides to flee Brockton Bay because Taylor and her Servants are way too powerful to face, and he's worried that if anything ever happens to Taylor's father, her resulting rampage will leave him dead.
  • Secret Identity: Defied by Taylor, since she doesn't consider herself a cape. Additionally, she doesn't really have a chance for one, as people started taking pictures of her and Mash a couple of minutes after she exited the locker.
  • She Is All Grown Up: Hero has this reaction when he meets Miss Militia, since back when he died, she was a little girl.
  • Shoot the Hostage Taker: Billy the Kid intervenes with a train robbery and starts slaughtering the bad guys. Some of them grab civilians and try to use them as shields, but Billy casually shoots the bad guys in the head.
  • Sickening Sweethearts: Cleopatra and Caesar are explicitly referred to by the narration as such.
  • Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: Blasto is convinced that it is inevitable that Earth Bet will eventually experience an apocalypse, so he believes nothing matters except trying to survive or escape Earth Bet. He believes that heroism doesn't matter because people can't change for the better.
  • Skeptic No Longer: In chapter 16, Hero is finally convinced magic is real.
  • So Proud of You: Hero tells Miss Militia he is proud of her.
  • The Stations of the Canon:
    • Defied with regards to Worm, see Year Inside, Hour Outside for details.
    • Additionally, Taylor managed to summon Napoleon, even though she hasn't been to the Lostbelts yet.note . It is later revealed that since he's French, he showed up during the Orleans Singularity.
  • Stepford Smiler: While Taylor really is quite a bit happier than she was in canon, the joke servant sheet that the author made is a box of saint quartz, implying she still misses her mom (or possibly Dr. Roman, it isn't exactly clear) quite a bit.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Taylor naturally goes through this after being in Chaldea for 3 Years and going through the whole story of Fate/Grand Order up to Epic Of Remnant, all while being trained by several of the Heroic Spirits summoned.
  • A True Hero: This is discussed when Vista learns she can see Taylor when she uses her Perception Filter spell while Armsmaster can't. After she gets Taylor's attention and she turns it off, Armsmaster asks why he couldn't see her while Vista could, and Taylor claims only a real hero can. It is implied Armsmaster isn't a real hero because of his paranoia and Glory Hound tendencies.
  • When She Smiles: Taylor gives Vista a smile. Vista describes it as something she wants to see every day.
  • When Trees Attack: Blasto creates a huge tree that grows out of control and attacks people. Paul Bunyan shows up to cut it down to size.
  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: Taylor was only stuffed in the locker for a few minutes in Earth Bet, but this somehow sent her to Chaldea, where three years have passed.
  • Your Magic's No Good Here: Earth Bet has no mana, so under normal circumstances, magecraft doesn't work there. Taylor and her Servants can recharge and use their powers by drawing mana from Chaldea's world. Eventually, Da Vinci figures out how to convert the energy from things like shards and the Endbringer's cores into mana, but she mentions it is very hard to do.


How well does it match the trope?
