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

    For those who are new to this:


    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:

    Vote format looks like this:

    Thank you.

    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?

    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.

    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.
