Smut Marathon 2020: Fourth round results

Before I start, a note: there has been remarks that the marathon is not a safe place for trans or non-binary writers, and I want to state here that everyone has always been and always will be welcome in the marathon, regardless of your gender, your religion, your race, your age, or even your level of experience as a writer/reader. You are welcome because you are a writer, welcome because you are a consumer of erotic writings. That said, there will be an addition to the rules before the next voting round of the marathon goes live.


We waltzed, we tangoed, we swung and swirled in the fourth round of the marathon, swerving through the sensual dances, many of those ending in delicious sex. This was once again an assignment where the writers had freedom to take their stories wherever they wanted, and they did!

You can find the feedback for the fourth round stories in the comments section under the stories.

This round is a knockout round — only 55 writers go through to round 5 — which means we sadly have to say goodbye to some writers. Let’s look at the results.

Public vote

During the voting round I keep track of all the votes, and when I see irregularities or strange patterns, I take action. The action can either be a warning to a writer, the elimination of a vote or the disqualification of a writer. I do give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but will not tolerate any cheating. Please note that the rules clearly say: one vote per person.

That said, let’s get down to the result of the public vote.

In total 81 legitimate votes have been received. Some people voted 3 times, others 4 and others 5 times. In total 324 selections have been made. The result of the public votes can be found below.

Winner of the public vote: Danse Macabre by Dirty Romantic
First runner up (tie): All By Myself by Zebra Rose and The closing dance by Mahotsukai
Second runner up: The Great Rite by Aoife Pheaca

Rankings

From the first to the sixth round writers accumulate points and at the end of the second, fourth and sixth rounds those at the bottom of the rankings have to leave the marathon. Sometimes I have to make an executive call when there is a tie, as happened in this round, and as is mentioned in the rules.

The rankings after four rounds are as follows:

Knocked out

Only 55 writers advance to round 5, which means of the 57 writers who sent in their stories for round 4, we sadly have to say goodbye to two writers. Those writers are:

  • Drew Stone
  • Luv Bunny

Thank you so much for entering the marathon, and sharing your sexy words with us. We hope to see you back for the Smut Marathon 2021!

Next round

Thank you to everyone who has written for round 4 and thank you to all the voters who have taken the time to read the entries, to vote and for those who have given feedback. A special thanks to the jury members for their hard work!

We will start the third round with 55 writers. These writers will be sent the fifth assignment later today and have until midnight CET (Amsterdam time) on 27 May 2020 to send it in.

The next voting round opens on 31 May 2020, so readers, please make a note in your planners and don’t forget to read and vote!
