Parahumans 2/Worm 2 has begun/Get Hype thread.

Postby Ostroeuropa » Mon Oct 23, 2017 11:22 am

The interim chapters of the second parahumans story have begun.

https://parahumans.wordpress.com/2017/1 ... wworm-p-1/

I know there's a few fans of the first story on NS, so I figured i'd post this, and see if we can get a chapter by chapter reaction going.

Spoilers for Worm 1, full story, and Worm 2, glow-worm PHO chapters, P.1
Glow worm P.1 seems to pick up with the revival of the internet, cobbling it together from what data managed to survive. Notably, porn is one of the things people are trying to cobble together into the new net.
From the reddit, there's some speculations:

Hope_In_Pithos Is a refrence to pandoras box, and may be one of Dragons aliases.

I<3Lethe is a reference to the river of forgetfullness in greek mythology, and so this poster is possibly Imp or one of the heartbroken. Lethe could be Imps new alias.

Nakyak Is a reference to a redditor Kaykan on the parahumans reddit.

Seems there is anti-cape sentiment, and "Blame the man who did this" could be a reference to Zion, or Jack. It appears the public are not going to be told the whole story, and will likely be led to believe Zion was merely a rogue cape, rather than an interdimensional space whale and the cause of a weird spooky hybrid species of human.


I'm hyped, are you hyped?

Thread philosophy; (0.1, Glowworm.)

Help each other, be patient, and contribute the best you can.

In so many ways, things will be frustrating, slow, and painful. Care, helpfulness, patience, and contribution will make literal worlds of difference. In so many ways.

But we’re back. Stay tuned for bigger, better things. Bear with us as we sort through it all.

I am so hyped I have had a trigger event, and my power is to not die from hype.

It’s likely that one or two of you who’ll listen to this enjoy the liberal administration of a social lubricant in it’s many wonderful forms. I can tell by the head on ya. A drop o’ Buckfast, a bump a’ Marvyn K, a cup o’ psilocybin scald, an opium suppository or whatever you’re havin’ yourself. And we’re right there with ya, rubbin’ in the commotion lotion and chasing blue ghosts. Fuck it, d’ya know what I mean?

Yes, but I was doing that anyway.

More importantly, P.2 is up.

[A18 11:08:11] Moonsong: Were you there?
[A18 11:08:44] Cap: was dragged into it. glad I was though.


Lol Taylor.

Capricorn and Moonsong seem interesting. Moonsong is probably a fucked up thinker by the description of their character, and went supervillainesque on their team.

I wonder what Capricorn's power is to get dragged into it. I'm getting near the end of Worm, I should try and keep an eye out for someone...I dunno, sheep themed?

Capricorn and Moonsong seem interesting. Moonsong is probably a fucked up thinker by the description of their character, and went supervillainesque on their team.

The impression I got is that Moonsong is/was the Taylor of Reach. Showed up and took over, except she was a manipulative asshole about it in some way, possibly with Thinker powers, and pissed Capricorn off something serious and he quit. I feel like it's significant that Moonsong used Capricorn's real name, but Capricorn didn't use hers. Don't know what the significance could be.

No idea who Capricorn could be planning to assassinate. Himself? Figures Moonsong might come for him, wants her to do it and get caught, hires assassins just in case she doesn't? But then why was he talking about it in the Reach IRC?

Everything I learn only raises more questions, and it could be days, weeks, months, or years before I get the answers. Is this what it was like reading Worm as it came out? How did anyone survive two years of this?


ETA: Oh man, and the Got Worm podcast tomorrow is gonna cover Riley's interlude. The only way there could be more Worm hype is if the e-book was published.

You enjoyed the podcast then? :p

Read up to date now.

I think curious_cephalopod might be a case 53 changer with multiple forms, maybe.

Also, Tattletale name dropped, I cheered. Hope she's prominent.

Yeah, that's what I thought. And maybe cycles through them regularly, thus the many PHO accounts.

Tattletale forever.

Hello. I am also so hyped. After p4 went up I rushed through the rest of 1001 nights so that I could re-read Worm, hopefully in time for the first Worm 2 1.01
I have just so many hopes for Worm 2 in that I want characters to be happy, but after Worm I know these hopes dangle on thin strings

Wooo! Hype!

Anyway, my theories:

Weird_Animal is some kind of changer Case 53 who may not have control over their changes.

Capricorn and Moonsong are part of a Multi-Trigger group with of5. Capricorn and Moonsong harbor some enmity against each other, but Capricorn hired an assassin to kill Of5 due to kiss or kill syndrome.

I don't know what to think about Mangled_Wings. I think she's probably a new character.

Heart_Shaped_Pupil either has Andrew Richters Shard. Somewhere it was stated that after their hosts die, the shards will find new hosts. Or, she is one of Teacher's students and has a tinker ability, maybe a weakened version of Richters shard.

And of course, mleek is probably a character who is important later on. Cult of mleek!

I would have thought that if anyone got Richter's shard it'd be Dragon.

Welcome to the thread! Hopefully we get a happy ending. Or one at least where maybe people can learn to be okay.

Welcome!

Mangled_Wings being Damsel of Distress seems a popular theory.

Heart_Shaped_Pupil theories:
Pupil could mean she's one of Teachers peeps I agree, or could be a reference to an eye. Given that she was backline, Surveillance Tinker is my guess and seems a popular one.

Mklekk is ban tho.

Glowworm 9 is a bit of an odd one, felt strange in writing terms a bit. Still, next up, FIRST CHAPTER!
And probably confirmation of who is the main.

Also, 9 has plenty of discussing Taylor, so I felt nostalgia and sad feels. She's "Gone" and people apparently know as much, they aren't calling her dead or retired.

Also; That time Taylor did something so controversial people don't even fucking talk about it because how you explain what she did will naturally place you on one side or the other unless you very carefully cover all the bases, which basically means revealing so much terrifying info to the public, noone will.

"Oh, she saved us all". -> Piss off anti-taylor people
"She mind controlled every cape." -> Ignoring that she saved everyone, bringing up that the capes were deserters.
etc.

Madison (Hi madison!) calls her Weaver, suggesting that the Khepri name is used in part to make it easier to keep under wraps, but I suspect people will eventually put it together.

Hostility and secrecy about "What happened to weaver on golden morning?"
Lining up with shifty eyes and secrecy about what little they talk about Khepri, but relatively open answers about everyone else, would allow people to put it together.

I mean, fucks sake, Khepri is a bug name.

Shock twist: Worm 2 is just about Taylor's more or less ordinary new life on Earth Aleph. Applying to college. So very much therapy. Coming out to her friends as a reformed S-class threat from another universe. Lunch where nothing happens.

Have you read copacetic?

Also, i'm not sure S-class threat cuts it, really. S-Class is a planetary scale threat or extreme continental one (The slaughterhouse nine.)

She and Scion are really a league of their own with interdimensional multi-planetary threat levels. S+ maybe. Or X. Or whatever.

OH NOES.
It occurs to me that The Nine aren't going to be in the story ;_;
Maybe we'll see a few clone survivors pop up as minor antagonists, one can hope.

Time to read.

It was a second chance for humanity as a whole, and they’d gone and screwed it up from the start by coloring the city gold, of all colors.

Time to read.

It was a second chance for humanity as a whole, and they’d gone and screwed it up from the start by coloring the city gold, of all colors.


Opening line is hysterical.

Story kicks off with a woman texting and a car crash.

Oh Wildbow, you cheeky bugger.

It’s likely that one or two of you who’ll listen to this enjoy the liberal administration of a social lubricant in it’s many wonderful forms. I can tell by the head on ya. A drop o’ Buckfast, a bump a’ Marvyn K, a cup o’ psilocybin scald, an opium suppository or whatever you’re havin’ yourself. And we’re right there with ya, rubbin’ in the commotion lotion and chasing blue ghosts. Fuck it, d’ya know what I mean?

I didn't notice it either, I saw it in the comments.


Also, protagonist isn't mlekk. 0/10, sandblasting off my bird tattoo.

Victoria is the protagonist? Cool. I guess she got fixed by her sister. Guts and glory time!

You're not allowed to remove the tattoos, that's a paddlin'.

Also, maybe she IS mlekk, we don't know for sure. Perhaps victoria has a strange sense of humor.

So let's think;
She'll have the Awe/Fear aura, and her forcefields. Not as versatile, but we should get some interesting interactions.
Perhaps Wildbow will even do what he originally planned to do if Taylor died in the leviathan fight, and have multiple protagonists this time around.

She *might* have some augmentations courtesy of Panacea... or even Bonesaw.

Incidentally, I wonder what Bonesaw is up to. The anti-cape anti-amnesty sentiments would make her a priority target. ESPECIALLY if people know about Jack being the catalyst for the end of the world. She's probably laying low, or transforming herself into something too scary to attack.

Victoria Dallon is now in the banner for the parahumans reddit.
She looks pretty cool.
