    Predictions:
    Vote 200: I, Panacea by 44 Votes
    Vote 201: Hostage Situation by 38 Votes
    Vote 202: Wyvern by 124 Votes
    Vote 203: One More Trigger by 101 Votes
    Vote 204: Reality Intrudes by 78 Votes
    Vote 205: Alea Iacta Est by 66 Votes
    Vote 206: Recoil by 228 Votes
    Vote 207: I, Panacea by 141 Votes
    Vote 208: Wyvern by 130 Votes
    Vote 200: War Games by 45 Votes


    Recoil got underperformed by 4 votes, but I, Panacea underperformed by 10, giving Recoil the 6 needed to win it looks like. Also, this makes 2 in a row that I've gotten the next vote incorrect. Ouch. Still around 95% for that one though.

    MirrorVerse 1140

    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.)

    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:
    No errors noted this time.


    On to the main event.

    Alea Iacta Est 283
    Collateral Damage 97
    Hostage Situation 682
    I, Panacea 0 (724)
    One More Trigger 588
    Reality Intrudes 512
    Recoil 104
    Slippery Slope 93
    War Games 102
    Wyvern 613

    Looks like I, Panacea was salty about losing out to Recoil last round, so it blitzed in with more than 40 points ahead of Hostage Situation. Still looks like it'll be that, then Wyvern, One More Trigger then Reality Intrudes.

    Check out Sleepyfoo for a reasonable prediction.

    Note: As Collateral Damage and Reality Intrudes are based on short, sharp chapters you'll be getting two 3-4K chapters each time either one 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.
