Reading Worm is depressing, because I feel like I’ll never be as good as Wildbow at most facets of writing.

I console myself by remembering my comparative advantages. For example, I wouldn’t write about a team of mass murderers called the Slaughterhouse Nine without at least considering taking away four members and calling them the Slaughterhouse Five.

I … didn’t … isn’t it implied that they started out as the Slaughterhouse Five and adopted more members?

Maybe that was just my headcanon.
