This is the voting thread for my SFW stories (look in my sig for the full list).

For those who are new to this:

I write Worm fanfic. A lot of it. I have a stack of ongoing stories, linked below, and so I need some sort of guidance as to which one I should be updating at any time. And so, I started a vote thread.

The way it works is, once I finish a chapter and post it, I tally up the current run of votes (usually takes me 36-96 hours to do a chapter) and add the vote point totals to each ongoing story total. When I post a chapter to a story, that total reverts to zero, and starts climbing the charts again (the votes that were cast while I was writing the chapter get added after I zero the total).

Your job is to vote. Up to six votes are cast per person, per voting round, as according to the guidelines below. The stories you vote on might not win this round, or the next, or even the one after that, but because the winning stories are being zeroed out, if you keep voting, that story will reach the top of the heap eventually.

From time to time, I will post a chapter in a story out of voting order; that's my prerogative. I will also post the chapter that's been voted to the top, so hey, you get that as well.

So, cast your vote, read the stories, and I'll post a chapter soon.


Original Voting Thread

The stories up for voting are:


Alea Iacta Est - Taylor triggers with a variation on Dinah Alcott's power. (the title is Latin for 'let the die be cast')
Confrontation II - Sequel to Confrontation; Taylor and Sophia work to overcome their differences.
Hostage Situation - Amy Dallon spends time with an old minion of her father's, and makes a startling decision.
I, Panacea - Sequel to Security!. Mike Allen ends up in Amy Dallon's head, after the bank robbery.
One More Trigger - Emma triggers in the alley, when she meets Shadow Stalker. Many things change.
Reality Intrudes - a Worm/Matrix crossover.
Recoil - New Delhi goes badly. Taylor is sent back 22 years into the past, to try to fix matters.
War Games - Crossover between Worm and the Human Polity series by Neal Asher (go read it!).
Wyvern - Taylor turns into a dragon. Hijinks ensue.


SFW:
Junior Hero - A non-Taylor-centric story of a Brockton Bay teenager getting powers and joining the Wards.
Nemesis - A cranky git wakes up in an alley with electrical powers, and no memory of how he got them. This can only end well.
Slippery Slope - Taylor makes friends at Winslow. Unfortunately, they are the Empire Eighty-Eight.

MirrorVerse - Heroes are villains, and villains, heroes.




While you're voting, I'll consider which one I want to write anyway.

Voting is OPEN.

Voting will take place in this thread only.

EDIT: Any posting I do to my quests will be separate to this; votes for same will not be counted.

I will tally votes as I get them, and work on what people want the most. Each time I post something, I will clear the votes for that one.

People can vote after each update.

Check the threadmarks for the current winning vote.


The voting rules go as follows:

1) UP TO six votes. I will not count anything extra, and a write-in will likely be ignored (if I want to write a different story, I will, but at my own discretion).
2) First vote is worth six points, second is worth five, and so on.
3) You can't vote twice on the same story. First vote is the only one that counts.
4) If I say "Voting is CLOSED", then post the vote tally, with "Voting is OPEN" at the bottom, then you can vote again.
5) If I say "Voting will continue", it's still the same voting period. Voting has not restarted. You can not vote a second time.
6) If you vote for a story that is not on the voting list, those point(s) will go to the story that got the least number of vote points that round.

Vote format looks like this:

[X] Alea Iacta Est - 6
[X] I, Panacea - 5
[X] Security! - 4
[X] Recoil - 3
[X] Trump Card - 2
[X] It Gets Worse - 1

Specifically: SQUARE brackets around an X, one space, and please spell at least the first word of the name of the story properly. Number of voting points comes last. I'll be using a spreadsheet to sort these alphabetically, so anyone misspelling the initial few letters will be all out of place.

Thank you.

Vote 1: Recoil
And the winner is ...

Hopefully I've gotten it right this time.

Also, as you can see, I've shifted the vote thread to the SFW side of QQ. This is to give more people access to the voting process. So do us all a favour and keep the bloody swearing to a friggin' minimum. Okay?


Aftermath 193
All Unaware 10
Bait & Switch 25
Brian & Aisha 393
Confrontation 439
Danny & Taylor 166
I, Panacea 253
Junior Hero 441
MirrorVerse 386
NSW 63
One More Trigger 221
Really Bad End 244
Recoil 0 (470)
Security! 223
Trump Card 283

[If you want to know which of these stories is NSFW, check the first post of the thread..]


And it's Recoil again, not much to anyone's surprise. Time to see how Captain Taylor Snow of the PRT is doing.

After this, I strongly suspect it will be another look at Confrontation.

Interesting note: I, Panacea blasted past Recoil on this round, with 75 vote points over 67.


For anyone who hasn't voted on this thread before, the voting rules go as follows:

1) UP TO five votes. I will not count anything extra, and a write-in will likely be ignored (if I want to write a different story, I will, but at my own discretion). Suggestions are welcome, but I am under no obligation to carry them out. And just remember, the more stories I am writing, the longer it will take for your favourites to roll back around.
2) First vote is worth five points, second is worth four, and so on.
3) You can't vote twice on the same story. First vote is the only one that counts.
4) If I say "Voting is CLOSED", then this post comes up, with "Voting is OPEN" at the bottom, then you can vote again.
5) If I say "Voting will continue", it's still the same voting period. Voting has not restarted. You can not vote a second time.

Vote format looks like this:

[X] I, Panacea - 5
[X] Security! - 4
[X] Recoil - 3
[X] Trump Card - 2
[X] NSW - 1

Specifically: SQUARE brackets around an X, one space, and please spell at least the first word of the name of the story properly. Number of voting points comes last. I'll be using a spreadsheet to sort these alphabetically, so anyone misspelling the initial few letters will be all out of place.

Thank you.

Voting is OPEN.

Seriously. I double checked. And I still managed to calculate 2x5=5.
So yeah, that was me.
It happens. Not a big deal. Admittedly, one doesn't like doing it. I've had things I've checked >30 times and still missed errors and been quite frustrated. Especially when I didn't find out until years later when it was much too late to fix them.
