    How long is the wordcount of Worm? Really want to start reading this Behemoth, but I am currently busy and if this is as good as some of you suggest I probably can't do anything else till I haven't finished it.

    Does anyone have a somewhat accurate wordcount of it?

    1.6 million, ish.

    The entire HP series is a little over a million words, for reference.

    1.5 million words, I think. Or 1.6, not too clear on that.

    Palindrome edited the original post with a word count of approx. 1,680,000 words, so that's probably as close of an approximation as you can get. Although Palindrome what did you use to do the counting?

    On the main page of Worm you can find Wildbow talking about it:

    A bit of a pic dump, sorry if there are a few older ones but they weren't in the thread before, so, might not have been seen by all.

    Think when it comes to character designs not in costume, LinaLee's work matches my mental images pretty damn well. Love it.

    And Sandara's work is clearly mindbogglingly good and the only one who does Endbringers (and Bitch's dogs) the most justice.

    The one I really didn't like is Vistas there. It looks like a sundress not the kind of skirt shape I envisiond.

    At this point it might be worth making a thread for that stuff. We have a subforum for Worm, and this thread is supposed to be about the story itself right?

    She's not supposed to be a man, either.

    Sorry for the necro but I remembered that we posted fanart in this thread and I just discovered this artist named YunYunHakusho and she made some incredible fanart for Worm. She has a thread on spacebattles.

    The Brockton Bay Wards:

    Contessa and Number Man

    Protectorate ENE
    [​IMG]

    The Pelhams
    [​IMG]

    Triumvirate
    [​IMG]

    Comission for Wildbow, which he uses on his patreon page. What's interesting there is that the people on here are the main characters of his work and she says here that the girl in the background may or may not be the protagonist for Worm 2, so that's interesting.

    So yeah, incredible artist. Really love her work, really hoping we'll get the Undersiders and more Worm pictures from her in general.
