Poll: Free Epic Poem for October 2014

Based on an audience poll, you get to pick a free epic from Polychrome Heroics.  Everyone is eligible to vote in this poll.  I'll keep it open at least until Monday evening.  If there's a clear answer then, I'll close it.  Otherwise I may leave it open a while longer.

There are 9 epics available at this time, not counting some that have prerequisites.  With that many in play, I'm going to make this a checkbox poll instead of radio buttons.  This means you can check however many poems you would enjoy reading (just don't check them all, so we can weed out the less popular ones) and I'll see which one proves the most popular.  Some of these also unlock sequels which may be sponsored and posted after the preqs go up.  (You can sponsor poems at any time; the locked ones just don't get posted until after the prequels have been published.)  Here are your options ...

"Part of Your New Life"
Damask and Mallory talk about what to do with her unplanned pregnancy and homelessness.
290 lines, $145
(Posting this would unlock "Outnumbered and Outclassed.")
