Russian Caravan by ReavingBishop

  • Recommended by: Professional-Sufferer
  • Status: Ongoing (last update Sept. 2023)
  • Synopsis:A girl with a parasite in her skull enters a tea shop run by a one-eyed Russian. She sits besides a woman who looks like a leper, and is descended from Alexander the Great (apparently). They are shortly joined by an irascible police officer and a faintly bewildered archaeologist. And then they start talking about another man who drinks fire.
    The evening gradually becomes worse.
Babel by billymorph
  • Recommended by Question Marker, Unclouded TJ
  • Status: Dead, last updated August 2018
  • Synopsis: Taylor triggers with the ability to talk to other people's powers. And they talk back. In fact, some of them kinda don't shut up.

Bird by Racheakt.

  • Recommended by: Twotonetopper
  • Status: Dead; last updated July 2019. Author eventually folded this story into The Precipice.
  • Synopsis: "Nobody likes it here. About one in every five doctors might be here to help the patients, the rest are here to study the patients.
    But you know what? You need this, we all need this. We have to try. It’s not going to be easy, it's not going to be pleasant. It's not going to be fun, or about making friends; or even, hell, escaping—though all of those might happen. Who knows?
    Being here is about one thing, and it’s the most important thing of all: getting better ."
  • Comments: Taylor spending her first months following her trigger in an asylum for parahumans is just a prelude to many other Alternate Universe aspects. A very different story when compared to Wildbow's. Heartwarming and horrifying in turns.

Bug On A Wire (Spacebattles thread here) by jacobk.

  • Recommended by RazorSmile, Ack Sed, Sheaman3773, Flairina
  • Status: Dead as of October 2013
  • Synopsis: No crossover, no alternate trigger events, just Taylor deciding to go the pure vigilante route and making an unexpected ally. Hilarity Ensues.
  • Comments: I love this Author; And having read their other fandom works I'm so happy to find out they also wrote for Worm. They are an amazing writer and you should check them out.

Burn Up (Worm) (Spacebattles thread here) by JinglyJangles

  • Recommended by: Unclouded TJ
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Taylor moves via explosions and does not appreciate being teased. Where is Lung when you need him?

Camera Shy

  • Recommended by: Pseudoname, Flar3001
  • Status: Ongoing (last update March 2023)
  • Synopsis: Taylor triggers as a Grab-Bag cape with a powerset that would make any shlasher movie villain envious. Suffice it to say that Taylor is terrifying and doesn't know it, as is tradition!
  • Comments: A creative altpower and one that plays well with the canon themes of "the cape makes the power."

Cenotaph, Wake, and Legacy by notes

  • Recommended by: RazorSmile, USA Bobcat, Nuit Tombee, Faraway_2, Sheaman3773, Leid, tpyrene, SigmaJargon, Unclouded TJ, Flairina
  • Status: Complete, Complete, Ongoing (Revived as of December 25 2023)
  • Synopsis:
    • Cenotaph: Everybody has an anchor to hold on to. Something that keeps them within their limits. Someone that keeps them human. Taylor Hebert's is gone.
    • Wake: It is a bad day when you have more than one potentially world-ending threat at the bottom of your to-do list. Taylor Hebert is having a very bad day.

Clockwork by Xomniac

  • Recommended by: Ack Sed. Seconded by Robinton
  • Status: Dead as of June 2014 ( The author started work on Synesthesia a Worm/The World Ends With You crossover; this story is also Dead)
  • 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?
  • Comments: 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 Heartwarming Moments and Moment of Awesome, and it even got readers to cheer for Armsmaster.

Confrontation (ack1308) and Confrontation II: the Reckoning by ack1308

  • Recommended by: Unclouded TJ, Red-Dead-Redeemer
  • Status: Complete, Complete
  • Synopsis:

    • Confrontation II: the Reckoning: While embarking on therapy-mandated activities, Taylor and Sophia literally run into someone on the Boardwalk. This will have far-reaching consequences.
  • Tags: Sci-Fi, Drama
  • Comments: Mainly focuses on the character interactions caused by Taylor being at the wrong place at the wrong time and as a result being a hero instead of a villain. Especially important is her interaction and friendship with Shadow Stalker.

Copacetic by Materia-Blade

  • Recommended by: russianspy1234, Faraway_2, Sheaman3773, sablin27, Leid, Robinton, Alivaril, Flairina
  • Status: Dead (last update October 2019)
  • Synopsis: My story was finally over. I had brought the Golden Morning and my reward was life. I found the peace I'd fought so hard for. The world was open to me! All I had to do was stay out of the light, and not draw attention to myself. That would be easy! ...I didn't last a week.
  • Tags: Adventure, Hurt/Comfort
  • Comments: 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."

  • Status: Dead (last updated Dec 23, 2018)

Escaping Fate by Slider 214

  • Recommended by Moopsball
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In one world Lisa managed to walk a fine line between annoying Coil and keeping herself a free woman. In another, she fell off that knife edge.

Firefly by Shujin

  • Recommended by Gentlemens Dame 883, tpyrene, Flairina
  • Status: Dead (last update May 2017)
  • Synopsis: There are probably few if any universes where Lung is a hero. In this one, however, she is more of an Anti-Villain than canon's version could ever aspire to be, and that changes a lot when a certain bug-controller makes a first foray into capedom. Yes, I said "she". No, that was not a mistake.

Freaky Friday by The Great Gimmick

  • Recommended by: Question Marker
  • Status: Dead, marked on Hiatus (last update September 2018)

Heels Over Head by Hotdog Vendor

Her Bark's Worse Than Her Bite by DoubleD20

  • Recommended by General Ironfist

  • Synopsis: Amy Dallon, Panacea. Brockton Bay's greatest healer. And a guilt ridden, sarcastic, and vindictive teenager with a lot of issues. A circumstance of fate while coming home from the hospital one night leads her to one, amazing discovery. Putting on a mask and beating people up is really, really satisfying.

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When Taylor Triggers she gains Lung's powers. After months of holding back she finally snaps when Emma pushes her too far and begins a Roaring Rampage of Revenge.

Here Comes The New Boss by Howling Guardian

  • Recommended by BobtheBoldore, Saslen, Pastykake
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: An AU where Taylor accidentally killed the Butcher with a swarm of bugs during her Trigger Event. Fortunately, an interaction between her powers and the Butcher's allow her to remain sane and even force the voices to behave themselves. She passes herself off as a Tinker and tries her best to hide the truth of her abilities.
    • It is worth noting that Howling Guardian does a remarkable job giving voice to and juggling the myriad Butchers, all of whom feel like well-developed characters.

Heredity by BeaconHill

  • Recommended by Lavanya Six, Sheaman3773, nitewind, Robinton, Unclouded TJ, Flairina, Question Marker
  • Status: Dead (last update January 2019)
  • 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.

Hope Comes to Brockton Bay by Ack

  • Recommended by Hjgz89, mantis
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An angelic superhuman from another dimension arrives in the Wormverse. And she has one superpower no one else has: being nice. Hope then proceeds to completely overthrow the status quo.
    • Heliomance: YMMV. Starts out fairly well, but it gradually becomes apparent that Hope is a massive Purity Sue. She is simply unfeasibly nice, never reacts negatively to anything, and apparently she genuinely "loves everyone". Yes, everyone. Even people she's never met. Every challenge she comes up against is quickly and easily dispatched to the point where the Slaughterhouse 9 are eliminated (everyone except Burnscar, Bonesaw and the Siberian dead, those three in custody) with no losses the first time they appear.
      • mantis: She's easier to like than a lot of OCs because she largely acts as a catalyst, getting the other characters to cooperate better and work to their full potential (especially Amy, who had the most wasted potential of any canonical character in Worm), rather than doing everything herself and reducing the rest of the cast to spectators.
      • xlblplk: Even as an admitted sue story, this story is one of the few sues done *right*. The only reason to dislike it is if you dislike sues as a matter of principle; everything else about the story is excellent.
      • (Author's note: This was my first fanfic. I did many things wrong. That said, the character Hope was originally an RPG character specifically designed to be a Mary Sue of the highest order. I think she had the easiest ride of any of my Worm characters, but she didn't get everything her own way all the time. Just most of the time.)

How Vista and Hookwolf Saved Christmas by Fabius Maximus

Human Resources by Automatonation

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.

Hypnos Round Robin Snippets by various

  • Recommended by Flairina
  • Status: Dead (last update November 2014)
  • Synopsis: A succession of snippets centralized around the idea of post-Golden Morning Taylor being sent back in time... as an ENDBRINGER. The definitive one is probably Hypnos'' by Materia-Blade, which is by far the most refined take on the very interesting subject matter.

I by Hotdog Vendor

  • Recommended by Aoirann, Puidwen, Robinton, Unclouded TJ
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Pretty much someone triggers with the powers of the "Who was phone" meme. And it's actually kinda creepy and awesome.


  • Recommended by: Pseudoname
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After triggering with a far more obvious power and getting into a knock down fight with Sophia in the halls of Winslow, Taylor is press-ganged into the Wards.

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Taylor meets with the Undersiders hoping to join their team. Things don't go as planned.

  • Status: Dead (last update November 2019)

  • Synopsis: The story of Worm gets posted on PHO just as Taylor recovered from her trigger event, revealing the truth to both the relevant parties and the public.

Mixed Feelings by Kithri. Spacebattles link

  • Recommended by: Question Marker
  • Status: Ongoing (last update February 2023)
  • Synopsis: Astrid Berklow has problems. Triggering has solved exactly none of them. Can she escape the shadows of her past and avoid becoming the person she fears she could be?
    • Notes: this is a story focusing on an original character, set in Brockton Bay, starting a few months pre-canon. The first arc of this story in particular deals quite heavily with the subject of long-term (non-sexual) child abuse, the aftermath of which continues to affect the protagonist.

"Mr. Fixit" by Rorschach's Blot

  • Recommended by Fuzzy Boots
  • Status: Completed as of December 13th, 2023
  • Synopsis: Greg Veder triggers the Thinker power of knowing how to fix things. He decides this means he should join Endbringer Fights, and he gets assigned as Search and Rescue.

He's also completely unaware of his fame. As of the eighth chapter, he's fixing a broken girl named Sophia Hess...

Nemesis by BeaconHill

  • Recommended by Milarqui, BobtheBoldore
  • Status: Ongoing as of January 2023
  • Synopsis: Emma wanted to become a superhero so she could lord it over the common mortals. But when her parents died, she didn't trigger, and when her best friend, Sophia Hess, told her that probably she could not trigger, they fought. On June 2011, Emma found out about Cauldron. She bought a vial, but she still had some money left, and she knew what to do with it.
    Taylor Hebert was out of hope. Two years of bullying had left her with no way out, no hope to escape the hell others had put her in. Not even being enclosed in a locker full of waste had led her to trigger, even though she had the possibility. On June 2011, a mysterious woman made Taylor an offer: powers. However, this came with something attached: she would have to be a superhero's nemesis. Her power was supposedly weak. The rules were stacked against her. But that would not stop her from taking what might be her last chance.
  • Notes: Don't let the synopsis make you think that this is dark. It starts on a bad note (without triggering, Taylor is missing the outlet her powers were in the original story) but Nemesis is actually a fun story when pace begins to pick up. Taylor's determination to do something with what she has allows her to turn what could have been a bad situation into another where she can actually turn her life around, and Emma's utter cluelessness of the screw-up she has made only makes things far more hilarious.

Neurocracy by Frantic Author

  • Recommended by: Question Marker
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: After narrowly avoiding a painful end and with Empire Eighty-Eight threatening the city, Shadow Stalker finds that being a survivor isn't as simple as she once believed.

Ouroboros by FixerUpper

  • Recommended by: Hakazin, Flairina
  • Status: Dead (thread last updated 2015)
  • Synopsis: A very well done 'Taylor gets a different power' fic. Being able to summon items out of books sounds fairly overpowered, right? But with some hard and fast limits on what can be summoned, the author manages to take what in other hands would be a boring stompfest and turn it into an excellent story. Wide knowledge of literary fiction makes this even more enjoyable to read.

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back by Fantastical Contrarian

  • Recommended by: Question Marker, Ariachus
  • Status: Dead (last update September 2018)
  • Synopsis: Taylor has a very different first night out. She faces Oni Lee, doesn't meet the Undersiders, and does encounter the heroes. In the short term, this makes things worse, but she soon finds herself with a chance to pull out of the downward spiral her life is in. It will take work. It will not be smooth going, or easy. But she will have a chance to get better. A story about dealing with depression.

Veritas Odit Moras by Wyrdsmithe

  • Recommended by Aacorn Soup
  • Status: Dormant (Last updated 21 May 2022)
  • Synopsis: Rather than letting herself continue to get beat down by the Trio, Taylor decides to get homeschooled and leaks details of the bullying (and evidence of Winslow's cover-up) to the FBI as an anonymous whistleblower; Taylor then becomes an Independent Hero. It's a canon-power (until Glory Girl's careless assumptions causes Taylor to second-Trigger with the ability to create portals with rings of bugs) post-locker canon divergence.

  • Recommended by Flar3001
  • Status: Complete Oneshot

...Who Needs Enemies? by The Steve

Worm d20 by throwaawy

  • Recommended by Zeyrha, Sheaman3773, Red-Dead-Redeemer
  • Status: Dead as of July 2014
  • 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?

A Propensity for Wrath by becuzitswrong

  • Recommended by: Gentlemens Dame 883
  • Status: Dead (The author Died During Production)
  • Synopsis: When Taylor was supposed to trigger, something interfered. Now she can see others' emotions and imbue items with her own, giving them power. But is she controlling her powers, or are her powers controlling her?

Abreaction by Jace911

  • Recommended by: pyrotorch246, Sheaman3773
  • Status: Dead Last update: 2013
  • 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.

Atonement by Cerulean

  • Recommended by: russianspy1234, Ragnar The Semi Green, Knight Light 321, SigmaJargon, Question Marker
  • Status: Dead (last update April 2016)
  • Synopsis: An AU fic where Taylor dies in the locker prank, and Madison's guilt causes her to trigger as well as fall out with Sophia and Emma. Plot ensues as she tries to atone for her deeds and joins the Wards in the process.
    • Seconded. Of particular note is the author's update pace. The story, now in its 13th arc, started on September 26th. So far, the author has been posting a minimum of four chapters of roughly three thousand words every week.
    • Thirded. As of today, 6/11/15, Atonement is on its 31st arc, and still going strong. While still having a serious tone and a seriously good story (And a boatload of mythology gag to the original series), Atonement manages to be somewhat more light-hearted and optimistic in a way that isn't terrible. The author also has a second fic, entitled Intrepid, which follows a similar premise in an Alternate Universe setting.

Gangs of Brockton (Worm Lite Gang Empire Builder) by Spktr Alpha

  • Recommended by: Ablige33
  • Status: Dead in all parts (last update to both quest and fanfic versions January/February 2018)
  • Synopsis: "It's 2011 and Brockton is a gang ridden shithole. With you leading one said Gang. You're new in town and the Nazis, the Merchants, and the Asian Nazis aren't sharing. That said you got a few tricks up your sleeve and you feel lucky. Then again that's what they all say."
  • Comments: Big changes to the Worm universe with the introduction of The Order, a new Gang that cranks the Deus Vault up to 11 and then some. Tons of Knights dishing out holy punishment against baddies like E88 and helping the citizens of Brockton whenever possible. Also, crusading abound. This is a quest-based story (i.e. audience participation through voting).

Intrepid by Cerulean can be found on Spacebattles

It Gets Worse by ack1308

  • Recommended by: ReaderAt2046, Unclouded TJ, euan112358, Dame-Amaryllis, GarthSerca, Red-Dead-Redeemer, BobtheBoldore
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An AU fic where Taylor gets a very different powerset from the locker incident. Specifically, her power now manipulates events to bring Laser-Guided Karma on anyone who tries to harm Taylor, even in an extremely indirect fashion. Essentially epic-scale Plot Armor, but so strong that Director Piggot calls her "the scariest parahuman I have ever met. And yes, I am including Nilbog in that total". Oh, and it has a very strong sense of humour.

Monster by Ghoul King

  • Recommended by: Flairina, Unclouded TJ
  • Status: Dead (last update August 2019)
  • Synopsis: When no one is looking, Taylor Hebert becomes a monster. But while her power is unfriendly, it's also quite strong, and with it she decides to take a more... proactive approach than most to the threats of the world. Starting with Nilbog.
    • Comments: An AU where Taylor triggers with Night's power. VERY well thought out, and a very original departure from the norm, particularly in the scope of Taylor's goals. Highly recommended.

Weaver Nine by Thinker6.

  • Recommended by Racheakt, SigmaJargon, Robinton, Red-Dead-Redeemer
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: AU where Taylor is born to Jack Slash's parents and vice versa.

Fast-forward to a young Jack Slash, ready and eager to use his cunning and powers to take on the criminal underbelly of Brockton Bay. Accelerates into awesome very quickly.

Seed by TheAnt

  • Recommended by: Flairina, Unclouded TJ
  • Status: Dead (last updated January 2017)
  • Synopsis: An alternate universe where the Endbringers attack in a few different places and order that leads to Taylor gaining Blasto’s shard. Desperate to be a hero, Taylor takes a dangerous gamble to give herself the power to save the city and chooses to become a Heroic Warlord to save the city from itself. Will Taylor become the hero the world needs or the monster that brings it all crashing to the ground?
  • Comments: Unclouded TJ: It has a slow start, but once it ramps up it has some decidedly awesome moments where Taylor shows just how smart she is with her power and everyone becomes terrified of her. Including Piggot being so scared she activates the Endbringer alarm just for one of Taylor's strikes against the ABB.

  • Synopsis: An AU where Taylor triggers with Skidmark's power.
  • Comments: There are actually two AU elements to this fic. The first is the aforementioned Alt-power. The second (spoilers for the first arc) is Scion committing suicide. After that, things start to get weirder. Much weirder. Rated M for Mind Screw.

Universal Truths by TheCompiler

  • Recommended by: Ariachus
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "My power comes in different parts. Essentially? It's a Trump. It's activated by a set of thirteen phrases that have to be spoken aloud that you'd probably classify as Shaker/Stranger or Shaker/Master. For each Phrase I say, I get exponentially more powerful. And so too do the...pulses that the phrases create. Those are the bits I can't control. If [people] hear them out of sequence, they die. If they hear one that's too high numbered for them, they die. That's about that. The human mind obsesses over them. Hearing one makes them want to learn the rest. Makes them figure out the rest."

The intent is to have a story in which Taylor genuinely helps people (or at least tries to do so, however inexpertly) and works to solve socio-economic challenges as opposed to putting on a costume and beating up the urban poor."

  • Recommended by: Phant0m5, Leid, Robinton
  • Crossover with: Sword Art Online
  • Status: Ongoing.

  • Comments: Some of the best parts of this fanfic come from the interaction between Khepri and the rest of the SAO players. The difference between the mindset of a modern citizen of the SAO-Earth and a hardened cape of Earth Bet is so sharp that the closest comparison they have is labeling Khepri as part of the Yakuza.

The story builds up a little slow but can easily keep your attention long enough for it to take flight.
  • Comments: Considering that skewed perspectives on absolute horror are at the centers of both Welcome to Night Vale and Worm, maybe it's not surprising how well the two canons mesh. This fusion is completely seamless and utterly horrifyingly hilarious.

  • Crossovers with: The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.

  • Comment: This story is incredible. The author captures Saiki's voice and narration perfectly to explore Saiki's perspective in a world where superpowers are a fact of life but none could still match up to the physical god he is. Saiki's interactions with the world around him lead to a vast potential of changing relationships and motives that leave the readers wanting for more. The sheer dedication of the author isn't just expressing through the carefully crafted-dialogues but also through his high-quality illustrations (and mini-game) that bring the reading experience to a new height. Very recommended. A must-read even if you've read neither of the canon stories.

A great work that will please fans of both series.

Power Grid by Scrimshaw

  • Recommended by Qrow
  • Crossover with: Power Rangers
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: In a world where giant monster attacks are as common as car accidents and teenagers with attitude defend the world against threats and enemies from Earth and beyond, Taylor Hebert sees herself being dragged into a mess she should probably have foreseen. Either way, it's Morphing Time!
  • Comments: A Fusion Fic of Worm and Power Rangers, replacing the PRT with Rangers, with a number of capes like Armsmaster and Miss Militia being Rangers instead of parahumans, and villains like Lung and All-Father reimagined as Power Rangers villains. Simultaneously darker than Rangers without being a Dark Fic (Rangers can and do die in battle, and the story kicks off with Mesogog wiping out Montreal), but still a lot more optimistic than canon!Worm.

Knight-Light by Ridtom

  • Crossover with: The DCU
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: One year has passed since the Titanomancy was thwarted by humanity and the worlds have slowly begun to adapt to the changes needed to progress. New worlds have been explored, not only from Gimel, Shin, or Cheit, but from one with a history of fantastic heroes and villains of it's own. Now, Gotham's Dark Knight must deal with a new threat seeking to find refuge in his city, and removing it at the root means exploring a world and culture far different from his own. Seeking information, he finds an unintended ally in a retired hero from this strange universe, who may play a part in a scheme far greater than either truly understands.

They find that they're hardly the only extradimensional visitors there though, as the Transformers have been fighting their war in secret there for a long time, and the dimensions of the multiverse of City of Heroes are already heavily involved in behind the scenes meddling, while links to the world of Godzilla and the grim darkness of the far future also exist. Whatever is bringing these and possibly other realities together can only have something to do with the Coming Storm, something that may threaten the survival of humanity and other species in this expansive multicross. Can the two save the conjoined earths from the designs of many conquerors? Why are these dimensions being brought together? And can two young, traumatised teenagers find themselves in this clash of realities?

  • Comments: A Peggy Sue fic where Taylor has come back to the past by seeking out Phir Se, who had gone into hiding, and sets into motion a plan to save the world. Because she had readied herself for dealing with Jack Slash and S9000, she has a different outlook on life and tries to manipulate things with often unforeseen consequences.
    • Flairina: It starts out rather abruptly, which had me doubting, but this is probably the best thought out Peggy Sue Worm fic out there at present. Don't let the strangely rushed beginning put you off.
