Title: Crime and Commitment Author: serpentguy Rating: T Genre: Adventure Status: WIP Library Category: AU Pairings: None so far Summary: Taylor had always had doubts about what she was doing, even after she had changed her mind on being a superhero. What might have happened if she had focused on all the good she could do if she approached law and order from the other direction? What might have happened if she had given being a supervillain her full commitment? Words: 73,588 Link: ff.net So, I posted this story a month ago in the almost recommended threat and had this to say: I stand by that, however, that is not the entire scope of the story. Since then, it got regular updates which were consistently good and did a great job in recapturing that Worm feeling of tension, entrapment, escalation and excitement. The first arc is, arguably, the weakest part of the story. The new extra to Taylor's power and how the E88 is handled is meh at best, a bit SoD breaking. But then, the interludes start and the story shifts into the next gear. The interludes are excellent, breathing fresh air in characters that have been slightly misused in fanon. Already talked about how much I loved the Gallant interlude and the Coil one. How it made Gallant interesting and Coil threatening. The situation with New Wave was great and the newest PHO interlude and the coupled private messaging was just excellent. So, yeah, rocky start but smooth sailing since then. 4/5, one of the Worm stories where I eagerly await the updates the most. Edit: Especially the PHO interlude, that one was just a thing of beauty. Perfectly paced by switching between general conversations in threads and pm talk. So good.
