    Thanks, as always, for voting.

    Voting points this round: 691

    Announcements
    Throne3d 's vote counting system seems to not be working, so it's back to hand counting. Any mistakes are mine.


    Novel is PUBLISHED. [Welcome to Utopia]


    Link to get, if interested: https://books2read.com/u/b68xeZ
    Amazon: https://www.amazon.com.au/s?k=welcome+to+utopia&ref=nb_sb_noss_2


    Sequel (part 2 of 4) is due out soon: Shadows Over Utopia

    Also, I have a free novel on Smashwords, called The Uncle Tal Stories.

    Any votes to any stories not on the list will not be applied to any stories, on or off the list. The stories that have been taken off the list will not be abandoned, just put on hiatus until I've actually finished a significant number of stories that are actually still on the list.

    MirrorVerse 1140
    Bait & Switch 1164
    Junior Hero 140
    Enter the Nemesis 161

    Afraid of the Dark [0] (Danny is an expy of John Wick. Taylor just went through the Locker. Be very afraid.)
    All Alone [25] (Emma dies in the alley, so Taylor makes a new friend. Sophia Hess. But after some very bad decisions. she's all alone again. Or is she?)
    Another Way [0] (Marquis beat shit out of BBB, then spent the next eight years in Boston. Now that his daughter has triggered, he's come back. She's having a ball.)
    Conflict [0] (It's 1980. Contessa managed to shank Eden without getting nerfed. Doctor Mother now has Eidolon's powerset, without the insecurity complex. They've got two years to prepare before Scion shows up.)
    Earning Her Stripes [0] (Sophia has gotten three power vials. Emma and Madison took two, and they're aiming to make Taylor into a villain with the third.)
    Entanglement [0] (Taylor has her bug powers. However, she is now randomly body-swapping with a Taylor from an Earth without super-powers. Both are rather confused.)
    First Telkan [0] (A crossover with the massively popular Reddit serial First Contact, by Ralts Bloodthorne.)
    Fuck Worm! [0] {NSFW} (A double SI, where a couple gets dropped into the Wormverse on opposite sides. Only just started.)
    Gravitas [0] (A crossover fanfic with a novel I'm in the process of writing).
    One Bad Day [0] (Sophia murders Grue. Taylor murders Sophia and Madison. Lisa murders her new team leader. Amy mindwipes Vicky. It's one hell of a bad day.)
    Prodigal Daughter [0] (Taylor isn't quite right. But that's okay. She's Jack Slash's daughter. Brockton Bay is in for ... a time.)
    Snek is a Good Boy [0] (The adorrifying adventures of a large snek in and around Brockton Bay.)
    Yet Another Way [0] (A spin-off of Another Way, where Carol killed Amy. The BBB is now out of the picture, and Marquis has managed to adopt the Dallon and Pelham kids.)

    A Friend At Winslow - Non-Taylor-centric, but involving Taylor.
    The Centre Cannot Hold - Taylor gets a really weird power, and makes full use of it. Crack.
    Dinah Alcott, Ruler of the World - Exactly what it says on the tin.
    EverYthiNg YoU kNow iS WroNg - The Birdcage is a luxury resort. Marquis was sandbagging. It's all a LIE, I tell you! Pure crack.
    Force Projection - A sequel to my original fiction Number Two.
    Hostile Takeover - Marquis had a son. He's just come back to Brockton Bay.
    Identity Theft - An international freelancer needs to hide out in Brockton Bay. Guess who she looks like?
    Isel - Prequel to my original fiction King's Man
    Parallel - A time travel story, involving Taylor's son from after Gold Morning.
    Living in Brockton Bay is Suffering - A perfect storm of bad events happens, leaving Tagg in charge of the PRT, based in Brockton Bay.
    Library Blues (working title) - A massive AU where Taylor is an adult, working in the library of Winslow High. Brian is the principal, and Sophia is the head coach.
    Terminal: A cancer sufferer triggers with powers. His life does not improve. News at eleven.

    User Errors:
    epiccuttlefish accidentally voted twice. The first vote has been wiped. (Second was counted).
    Terrence Mitchem put a 3-point vote on each of Wyvern and War Games. Due to the order they were entered, Wyvern was bumped to 4.


    On to the main event.

    Alea Iacta Est 553
    Collateral Damage 0
    Danny & Taylor (587) -
    Hostage Situation 428
    I, Panacea 301
    One More Trigger 294
    Reality Intrudes 222
    Recoil 230
    Slippery Slope 484
    War Games 478
    Wyvern 108

    Well, this is going to be Danny & Taylor's last chapter. Though there was an amazing effort by some to vote Alea Iacta Est up past D&T's score, they missed by 30 points. Next up is almost certainly Alea Iacta Est, followed by War Games, then probably Hostage Situation and maybe Slippery Slope.

    Check out Sleepyfoo for a reasonable prediction.

    After a little counting on the ad hoc vote, I am pleased to announce that Collateral Damage has made the cut, just ahead of rivals MirrorVerse, Prodigal Daughter and First Telkan.
    As Collateral Damage is based on short sharp chapters (like Reality Intrudes) you'll be getting two 3-4K chapters each time that comes up, instead of one 7K+ chapter.


    Anyway, thanks again for voting, and I hope you enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoy writing them.


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

    Vote format looks like this:

    Thank you.

    Voting is OPEN.
