    After years of cajoling, I finally got my mom to read this. And she loved it. I guess that's a good thing.

    Honestly, I want to see the original worm edited and released more than anything else. I only read it once, as it was being written, and I've deferred rereading as I think it would be amazing when edited well.

    This seems to be something that's always on the todo list though sadly.

    All indications are that Wildbow is actively working on that (editing) with substantial progress being made. It's definitely not his only priority, but it is something he's doing.

    It also seems that he will try (and is trying) for a good publishing deal, but if not, he'll self-publish as an e-book.

    So, any predictions as to what Worm 2/ Parahumans 2 will be about? New char, established char, earth bet, somewhere else? Taylor again?

    Personally, I am hoping he starts with a shitty altpower Taylor story, hitting all the clichés. Kiddo-Danny, bullies, Clockblocker saying bullshit and Vista hitting him, Piggot and when Taylor gets drafted into the Wards he starts anew story that is nearly identical but Taylor has a different power in it.

    Infodumps, but useful ones. We know at least that the Guild is still around, Masamune is probably the cornerstone of getting technology back up and running again, and that there are multiple worlds being colonised by the survivors of Earth Bet.

    If you just want a refresher check out this thread. The We've Got Worm podcast is also worth listening to though.

    Take Ward discussion this way, only post here if you're reviewing Worm, or Parahumans 1.
