    I read Worm about a year ago, had some fanfic ideas, etc. I'm not plugged in with the Worm community - like, I don't hang out on SB/SV/#parahumans.

    Reading all 1.5 million words again probably isn't in the cards.

    The HP fandom has some amazing resources for fanfic writers - like this one.

    Does Worm?

    I'm plugging along, and I think, "man, what was Brian's last name again?" "Huh. Wasn't there someone in the Wards who had some kind of emotional manipulation power?" "I wonder what would happen if you change X event in the backstory?"

    Where do you go?

    Looking for: bullet point plot summaries, character trees / descriptions, org charts, the mechanics of shards, etc. Basically anything that would be helpful as a quick refresher in lieu of actually re-reading the book.

    Also, more importantly, any kind of resource that had condensed backstories and "how things fit together" analysis - i.e. anything that would be a resource to going "Okay, 15 years before canon, X happened/didn't happen. How does that change the landscape now?"

    Well, I know of a timeline.

    Can be useful when you can't for the life of you remember if Alexandria was killed before or after Taylor left the Undersiders, for example.

    There's a list of capes and their powers here.

    Cape feats here.

    And a WoG repository

    Thanks, folks! Those all look pretty solid.

    Take all of those links with a grain of salt. I've noticed discrepancies here and there. The wiki is very iffy and extraordinarily incomplete. The timeglider timeline has Annette's year of death wrong and also when Sophia and Emma meet is the wrong month. Ack rarely sources his information, but a lot of it is pretty well thought out, I've noticed a couple of inconsistencies though, etc.

    Check multiple sources if the date or info is important in your fic.

    Is there a list with all the characters who have died in Worm?

    I know I've seen one on the SB Worm Fic Recs and Disc. thread. Of course it's about a billion pages long at the moment. You might post the question there if you have no luck here. They're fairly good about responding quickly.
