    First time voting, so I hope I did it correctly (and that voting is even currently going on. If it is not, please ignore my post)
    Really, I enjoy all of your stories and have typically been content to just be happy with whatever comes out. Seeing a notification of any of your fics updating always brightens my day, whichever one it is. Figured it was time to give voting a try.

    Thanks, as always, for voting.

    Voting points this round: 725

    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).

    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:

    (I voted for Finding the Way because that was what the SFW version of Danny & Taylor used to be called, and I probably assumed it would keep the name.)
