    Yeah, the Jack Slash plot thread was unexpected, cool, and unfortunately left unresolved by the author. Despite its flaws I really enjoyed Silent.

    I disagree.

    The notion that Jack Slash can show his face anywhere in public incognito is absurd. They probably renamed "America's Most Wanted" to "Where in America is Jack Slash" ages ago.

    Also the Danny being gay thing was pretty damn stupid in my opinion.

    Danny falling in love with a man and Jacob's face not being recognised are both unusual, but certainly not inexplicable. Between the talents of Cherish, Bonesaw, and Jack himself, all of that is easily done.

    He'd go to great lengths to recruit a new member and Silent could have been his greatest. The Endbringer fight beat him to the punch though.

    As has been said, it was nothing spectacular, but for what it was (and how quickly it updated) it was quite enjoyable. Are there problems? Very much so. But all in all it was a pretty decent time waster considering it was written in 4 days and tops out around 50 000 words. The fact that it's actually finished marks it apart from almost the entirety of Worm fanfic and this doesn't hurt either.

    I liked the story, even or maybe especially its ending. It was bitter sweet and solved the whole "Taylor is a god" problem a bit better than even the original Worm did (Yeah I am not a big fan of getting shot and dumped on another earth (Even if this overs some great openings for a Crossover)). It is easy to start an OP Taylor story but very hard to finish it and that he did so is impressing in my opinion.

    This would be a good name for a fanfic featuring Jack Slash as the main character.

    Read Silent earlier today and while it is a decent enough time waster it is also rather... boring I guess is the right word. If you have anything to do at all you will be better off doing it, only reason I finished was purely sunken cost fallacy.

    Silent is pretty eh. The mute thing is never really explained, and a lot of other threads are dropped too. It's notable mostly for being an Overpowered-Trump-Taylor story that actually finished, but it was kind of a downer really.

    Silent got updated; I'm confused.

    EDIT: Ah, ok its a divergent if Jacob was Jack Slash.

    Also glad that Silent is getting updated again, although now I'm more wary due to the way we got burned the first time around...

    Anyway, went on another SB Worm binge. Actually found some pretty cool stuff.

    Silent - Another pretty interesting fic. Taylor gets the ability to absorb other people's powers by touching them (at the random cost of not being able to speak). Decent length so far, and has covered various events in very interesting ways. Despite the "epilogue" chapter, it's not really finished - that's the "bad end" if you want to view it that way. =P

    Silent was shaping up to be, if not amazing, at least original. Then it had the most retarded Leviathan fight of all time (with icicles of all thing somehow injuring Alexandria) and it stopped updating.

    All of the above posts were reclaimed from Worm's Almost Recommended thread and in some cases edited for the Library.

    Now that you're here, don't forget to rate the story!
