    Since Recoil has gone up, shouldn't we have a new round of voting start?

    Yes, yes we should.

    12 hour shifts plus late-night posting leads to brain farts.

    Very sorry about the delay.

    Voting is CLOSED.

    Thanks, as always, for voting.

    Voting points this round: 771

    Announcements
    Throne3d 's vote counting system is once more working well. Thanks, Throne!

    It has come to my attention that I have been slacking off. I'm going to try to speed up my posting of vote stories.

    Reminder: I have removed Meet the Heberts and NSW from my vote lineup. Danny & Taylor will be strictly SFW from here on in. Apologies to everyone who was voting just for those.

    Novel is PUBLISHED. [Welcome to Utopia]

    I'm posting it, one chapter per week, in my sig.
    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


    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
    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.)
    Collateral Damage [0] (Danny is the most dangerous Tinker in the world. Taylor is her father's daughter.)
    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).
    I'm HALPING! [0] (Taylor has a new friend. He's a cute teenage boy, who also happens to be an Endbringer. Cue hijinks.)
    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.)
    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:
    Diraniola - You need to put dashes between the name and the number. I have manually added your votes this time.


    On to the main event.

    Alea Iacta Est 655
    Confrontation II 0 (676)
    Danny & Taylor 318

    One More Trigger 184
    Reality Intrudes 664
    Recoil 128
    War Games 614
    Wyvern 582

    This is the last chapter of Confrontation II, bringing the Confrontation miniseries to an end.

    When you vote, I would like you also to express your preference toward one of the following to replace it:

    Collateral Damage
    Conflict
    Earning Her Stripes
    First Telkan
    Fuck Worm! [NSFW]
    Junior Hero
    MirrorVerse
    Nemesis (might need a name change)
    Prodigal Daughter
    Slippery Slope


    Write-ins of my stories that I haven't posted here will also be considered. (Those being commissioned are unavailable for voting.)


    Check out Sleepyfoo for a reasonable prediction.


    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.

    Would prefer 'Afraid of the Dark' honestly, a John Wick styled Danny teaching Taylor the trade is great.

    Edit - Deleted my 1 vote for Confrontation II. Will wait and see what to replace it with.

    My vote for which one to add to the voting:
    [X] Slippery Slope

    Up for voting and I'd like to see it, just not quite enough to get a vote this time...
    [] Alea Iacta Est
    [] Wyvern

    Not up for voting but I'd still like to see it: (hopefully more stories will be added to the voting soon!)
    [] Entanglement
    [] MirrorVerse
    [] I'm HALPING!
    [] One Bad Day
    (of these, only MirrorVerse was even in the list of ones to potentially add to the vote this time.)

    [X] Danny & Taylor - 1

    [X] Earning Her Stripes - 0

    Predictions:
    Vote 172: Alea Iacta Est by 50 Votes
    Vote 173: Wyvern by 60 Votes
    Vote 174: War Games by 64 Votes
    Vote 175: Reality Intrudes by 82 Votes
    Vote 176: I, Panacea by 56 Votes
    Vote 177: Recoil by 197 Votes
    Vote 178: Hostage Situation by 82 Votes
    Vote 179: One More Trigger by 45 Votes
    Vote 180: Wyvern by 67 Votes
    Vote 181: Alea Iacta Est by 282 Votes

    This one brings a False sense of stability with it from last time, as nothing major has changed. However, given the Story leaving the list and the new one being added, vote patterns and totals are likely to change. The next 3 or 4 are probably pretty set, but after that? I have less confidence than usual.

    It's been (nearly) a year and a half since my last vote, so I'll have to remove some of the options here; in fact I barely got enough for a full 6-option vote. (I'm a bit sad for much of the NSFW stuff; the parts I've seen were quite nice.)

    [] I'm HALPING! - 18
    [] The Great Tattletale Caper - 17
    [] Entanglement - 16
    [] Taylor Hebert, Medhall Intern - 15
    [] Are You Afraid of the Dark? - 14
    [] One Bad Day - 13
    [] First Telkan - 12
    [] Conflict - 11
    [] Gravitas - 10
    [] Earning Her Stripes - 9
    [] Nemesis - 8
    [] Greg Veder, Conquering Hero sequel - 7
    [X] Alea Iacta Est - 6
    [X] Wyvern - 5
    [X] Hostage Situation - 4
    [X] One More Trigger - 3
    [X] I, Panacea - 2
    [X] Finding the Way - 1
    [] War Games - 0

    The list above 6 can be considered my line of succession to the "next story" preference; my vote is for whatever story is the highest on that list among the eligible ones that could realistically qualify. (I think this would be First Telkan, 7th place in the line, if no more options are added to the current listing.)
    Note the absolute lack of Slippery Slope, a story that I'd rather prefer to never have to think about. Unfortunately it also seems to be by far the most likely winner.
