Another fanfic in the works, this one is designed around a fairly different concept entirely. This starts years before canon, with Danny dying and Taylor triggering as some sort of Bio-Tinker. With Annette giving her advice, Taylor stays out of the spotlight entirely, focusing on being a back alley doctor catering to the rogues and independents of Brockton Bay. Over the years (as this happened like...5 years before canon, when she was 10 or 11), she eventually became one of the keystone members of what became known as The Luminarium, which was similar to Somer's Rock but for all rogues and independents of the city, villainous, heroic, and otherwise, that let them all gather, discuss their differences, collaborate, and help each other against the major gangs.

This kind of community has also helped a number of rogues survive the otherwise harsh climes of Brockton Bay, meaning there are a larger number of capes in BB, especially as The Luminarium starts looking attractive to non-combative capes like Parian, who start flocking to the Bay area from out of town.
That environment is helped further because Taylor's Bio-Tinkering allows her to turn otherwise normal people into low-level capes (or even actual capes, if she can get her hands on some of their genetic material), swelling the ranks of the BB parahuman community

I’m seeing Luminarium!Taylor as an something of an inverse of Bonesaw- her powers are a cut-rate version, so she’s not as good, but she has had much more chance to dabble and view other people’s work. Bonesaw has seen more Tinkers’ work in her time, but that is more a result of looking at work of the people she has killed; Taylor has seen a little bit less, but that is mostly a result of her trying to keep a low profile. More people are willing to work with her, share with her, cooperate and sell to her. Bonesaw focuses on upgrading a group of super-powered homicidal maniacs, and is despised for it; Taylor mostly focuses on making many low-powered ‘capes’ or making cut-rate versions of parahumans, and on patching up the capes in her hometown, but is fairly widely respected for it.

Just had the thought last night, that if I’m going to do a cut-rate version of Bonesaw for Taylor, it would probably go something like this:
Bonesaw is very likely either a Limit Tinker (primary field from which she can branch out; the most likely), a or a Free Tinker (can build whatever she can dream of; less likely). In either case, this gives her a very wide scope. Taylor, by contrast, would be very limited- Binary Tinker is possible (two different fields that may or may not overlap), but I am thinking more Hyperspecialization (very limited focus, but gets an advantage because of the narrow field), highlighting upgrades to organic systems (which would include medical knowledge, simply by necessity) with an added bonus of these upgrades including comprehension and ability to manipulate parahuman effects/features (because the attachment of the shards is, by necessity, organic).

This does make Taylor a cut-rate version of Bonesaw, being similar but different, while at the
same time making her distinct.

Luminarium!Taylor would have gotten into the cape business in 2006, a year after Bonesaw, so she would have grown up knowing that what the world thought of biotinkers, having a direct contemporary as an example of why they are so distrusted, and that doubtless contributed to her desire to stay underground
oh yeah, before i forget, there was a girl who wanted a change from L!Taylor- she wanted to be a tentacle monster, and be a rogue who performed all sorts of fun and lewd purposes. Taylor made sure the girl knew what she was getting into, but the girl was like, 'yeah, i want to do this'
