Between: 16.10

You should have known that Thomas Calvert was coil right away because “I, Thomas Calvert” is an anagram of “Coil starve math”.

and also an anagram of “Coil, hamster vat”

Truly Wildbow’s foreshadowing runs deep. J.K. Rowling would be proud.

I’d missed that Chains had flat out said Cio had stolen that, but I suspected she was the thief when she changed the subject and hustled Allison out of there the minute the theft ‘by a ruthless ebon’ came up. It was like “You are very eager for Allison not to hear this.” I wonder if her demotion was punishment for the theft, somehow?

I don’t think that’s why she found it to be time to leave, though… Sweetie Pie and Honey Bunch were approaching, ready to start trouble.

But perhaps it’s a bit of both.

Saw this meme image shared in a Worm context and now I’m picturing Lung voiced by Alfred from RTFD 😀


I’ve come to make an announcement. Skitter the Hebert is a bitch ass motherfucker, she pissed on my fucking wife. That’s right, she took her arachnid fucking quilly dick out and she pissed on my fucking wife, and she said her dick was “This Big” and I said “That’s disgusting” so I’m making a callout post on my Skitter the Hebert, you got a small dick! It’s the size of this walnut except way smaller, and guess what? THIS IS WHAT MY DICK LOOKS LIKE! THAT’S RIGHT BABY! ALL POINT, NO QUILLS, NO PILLOWS. LOOK AT THAT, IT LOOKS LIKE TWO BALLS AND A BONG! Wait, what are you doing with those brown spiAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

You put 11.1 in both the arc 10 and arc 11 sections.

Whoops! Thank you, fixed.

Kinda liking the slower-and-longer format, it makes for more involved co-reading?

We’re stopping to smell the daisies of Worm. 😛

Honestly, even if you weren’t less active, the fact that we don’t see chapters and asks as you’re doing them anymore might make you seem less active at least a little.

Yeah, that’s true. Plus, that’s probably a psychological factor in making me actually a little less active.

That was actually the last chapter of Worm. The “Next Chapter” link is a rickroll. So, any final thoughts on the serial as a whole?

Well, the first word that comes to mind is “love”. I’m sure you’re no strangers to having that feeling about the story, so I won’t bore you with the details.

You know the rules of storytelling — as do I — and Worm is a story that knows how to follow them and when to break them. It stays fully committed to its solid themes throughout, something you wouldn’t get from just any other story.

As the story comes to a close with this rather abrupt ending, I just wanna tell you how I’m feeling. Liveblogging Worm has been lots of fun over these past two and a half years, and I’m very thankful to Wildbow for writing such an excellent work and to you guys for following me on this adventure. But I have to make you understand this: It’s not over yet!

I wouldn’t give up on you guys that easily, nor would I let you down by not moving on to Glow-Worm and Ward. I wouldn’t run around and desert you in favor of other fandoms just because I finished Worm. I don’t know if any of you are so attached to this blog that it’d make you cry if I did, but nonetheless, I’m not saying goodbye. And that’s the honest truth — I wouldn’t want to hurt you all by lying.

In the meantime, here’s a video that I feel summarizes my thoughts on Worm rather well.

See you soon for Glow-Worm!

At 1 Coil, you ask me for a hamburger. I both give and don’t give you a hamburger.

Crustaceans and hexapods are really just Amy Dallon with more crust.
