What is this?

[Welcome to Krixwell Liveblogs!

This is a blog dedicated to sharing my reactions and thoughts while experiencing pre-existing media. I started liveblogging in January 2017, beginning with the web serial Worm by Wildbow.

The blog began on Tumblr, and was mirrored to WordPress starting from December 2018 (the time of writing). As such, posts up until Interlude 15c of Worm may show traces of being written with Tumblr in mind. The blogging of each chapter was segmented, each post covering a few paragraphs; here, I’ll be using break lines to mark the original post boundaries.

An important feature native to Tumblr is asks. On Tumblr, this is a way of sending short messages to people. To avoid spoilers, I have an ask screener, who receives the asks, filters out spoilery ones, and then sends them to me between chapters. For the time being, this system will stay in place using Tumblr.

I will not be reading your comments, so if you want to say something to me, please use the “Ask” link in the menu.

One last thing I feel I should note before we move on to the liveblog itself: I’m a chronic reference dropper, so this liveblog contains a number of (normally minor and/or vague) spoilers for various other works. You have been warned.

(P.S.: The silly titles the chapters are given in the post headers were and will be made up by me for the sake of my blog’s table of contents, since Worm’s chapters don’t have official titles beyond the Arc titles and chapter numbers.)

All of that having been said… Enjoy!]

    secret diary remains a secret

    The 12/4 comments say “Your comment is awaiting moderation” but the 12/5 comment does not, however, if I visit the page in a different browser, none of the comments appear, not even the 12/5 comment, presumably because even though it’s not “awaiting moderation” it’s still hidden due to being a reply to a a hidden comment.

    Testing something… could the words “spoil” or “spoilers” in a comment result in it being flagged for moderation automatically?


    • I’ve made a terrible mistake. By accidentally posting a top-level comment instead of a reply to one of the hidden comments, it’s now publicly visible. Project compromised. Abandon ship.
