Just started reading worm ff. This was an epic story with a satisfying ending. I liked how up to the very end we still weren’t sure about old Mags. My favorite parts were just Taylor critiquing Magnetos plans in her mind. Always made me laugh.
Thanks for the great story

This story starts out great. But this is my second read-through, and I'm noticing things I didn't the first time. Like how after chapter 30 the plot essentially dies. After Leviathan, which so frequently is a story-killer, this story goes basically nowhere, getting caught up in one distraction or derail after another with no coherent goal. Granted, Worm was the same way to some extent, but this is worse because each derail is given a chapter or two and then the next one comes along, so none of them feel like they mean anything.
The story becomes about city-building, then there are a couple of chapters wasted on Slaughterhouse Nine stupidity, then it's a body-jacking story, then some team building and heroing, and then it suddenly jumped right into the middle of the final Scion plot, but by that time it's so tired and beaten flat that it's tough to care any more and I actually stopped reading. I had only remembered the beginning and the end of the story from my first reading, and I'd forgotten how much of a slog the middle was. There's a good story in there, but it'd need to be about twice as long or half as long. As it is, the second half is just superficial, a hodgepodge of ideas that were never given enough time to become interesting. Overall this is about 6/10 fare, with the first half being more like 8/10. Basic math tells you what the second half gets.

She didn't even HEAR Legend's speech in this story, so that last line is just out of place. It's a line that would make sense in canon, but not here.

Alexandria saying someone else makes it tough to like her? She's one of the least likable characters in the entire cast!

It's not just the Slaughterhouse Nine that stomped on capable Tinkers. It's mostly the Simurgh. That's how the SH9 got Mannequin in the first place! So while the Nine did do that, it was because the Simurgh maneuvered them into it, and until dealt with can do so again. Gathering all the useful Tinkers in one place is a recipe for destruction, and since everyone knows how Sphere became Mannequin even Taylor should know that it's a bad idea.

Well, that was just as dumb as I expected. Taylor should be dead. The entire thing with Siberian is that she ignores physics, which includes electromagnetic force fields. And she gives invulnerability to those she touches, so that filling thing wouldn't work. If you're not even going to give the characters their canonical powers, then why waste a couple of chapters on them in the first place? Just having them in the story makes it dumber, and nerfing them makes all of that pointless. It was all just a way to get rid of the helmet since even Cauldron isn't that stupid, but forcing the plot in that direction without putting much thought into HOW significantly weakened the story.

And now for the dumb part of every Worm story. Why does every goddamned story have to follow the stations of canon, including these idiots?

Nobody gets a kill order for that. Seriously, this is a town with Hookwolf, Lung, Oni Lee, Kaiser, and more, and not one of them had kill orders.

shoulda made it more painful for all of them. they were a lost cause and very very fragile in mind lol but the threat of a pandemic is paramount

This is annoyingly forced. I can't tell if it's because Magneto forced it by lying about the police being suspicious or of it's just bad writing. Either way, it's annoying.

need her to take her father seriously. if he has the an OP warging ability then he's in danger of actually losing his consciousness to the wild and leave an empty husk behind. that's scarier than bran stark ability, at least he only needed summer lol as well as being a greenseer
