Worldburner

Worldburner is a shared world fanfiction series created by Erin Mills, opening on 31st August 2010. It was the sequel to Judith Strikes! and counterpart to Worldhopper, which finished the story off.

The series focuses upon the exploits of Judith, an omnicidial version of Daria who now wields hideous levels of personal power of supernatural origin, and is capable of destroying entire universes. Judith has begun destroying universes/realities for some as yet-undisclosed reason as she moves across the Daria Multiverse (sometimes appearing to cause universal obliteration for the sadistic and gratuitous pleasure of doing so). The stories in this shared-world series have focused upon characters in those universes as they face their approaching fates, as well as the exploits of the various dimensional forces which attempt to restrain or stop Judith's rampage, or simply survive her wrath.

Opposing Judith are: The Foundation (fronted by Reiko Tsereba), who try to keep the omniverse itself intact and work for "the highest" authority; The Agency (Richard), which try to stop timelines and universes from being altered by outside forces; DELPHI (Lt. Heather Patterson), a US intelligence organization with superhuman/sci-fi operatives that exist on many worlds; and the Corps of Ringbearers (Archangel), a pan-dimensional force tasked to defend against supernatural threats.

Unlike "Judith Strikes", there is a more specific chronological order to Worldburner: a number of fanfics tie into each other. They were not always written in the same order they were set, however.
