That Fateful Self-Esteem Class....


Let's revisit this important moment for Daria and Jane in honor of International Day of Friendship. Their friendship may have been a troubled one--going up against natural disasters, stolen boyfriends, and hair dye, to name a few--but it seems to have persevered all the same.

A Holiday I Can Really Get Behind!


Daria and Tom are celebrating National Milk Chocolate Day, although I think I see a few dark chocolates mixed in there. I won't hold it against them, though, and I suspect neither would Mrs. Johanssen.

I don't think there was chocolate of any kind in the episode "Speedtrapped," which aired on this day in 1999. There was a slab of not-yet-thawed cake, though.

Fanfic Update!
  • Daria: College Pains The Sophomore Year, by James the Lesser (part 16): "Daria leaves work with a headache. Ever since she had been made the Senior Editor she regretted every day taking the position."

  • One And The Same, by Princess_Pasta (part 4): "Trent's beat-up Plymouth Satellite rattled down the road as he drove his two passengers towards their destination, part of him still in awe over the fact that his baby sister was going to a party."

  • Possibilities, by Sureia (part 31): "When she first attended Fielding, Erin had mixed feelings about the school and its policies."

Ready...Aunt...Fire!


Rita and Amy are arguing about who's the better aunt on this National Aunt and Uncle's Day, and I think Trent will agree that either of them is better than his uncle Max. Then again, who wouldn't be better than that lousy, rotten bum?

Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Fire!," which first aired on this day in 2000. The only uncle there was the one Bobby the Bellhop made up in order to impress Quinn. And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for those meddling hotel detectives!

Jesse Smash!


Jesse's got a big birthday surprise for Gallagher's 70th birthday, so you might want to keep a safe distance unless you like getting splattered with watermelon. I don't think I've ever seen Jesse look quite that enthusiastic about anything.

Three years ago today, the "Daria: High School Reunion" mock trailer was released to fans' delight. Sadly, no live-action film ever emerged, but we can still dream, right?

Fanfic Update!
  • The Bench, by dmsfanman (part 4): "Daria paused for what seemed to Tom like forever still looking at him. It was all he could do to let the silence happen."

  • A Boring Summer, by ST91 (COMPLETE!): "To say that at first things between Dario and Brittany were strange would be an understatement. However slowly, something was born between the two teens."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 23): "'I wish to specify that Mr O'Neill is my English teacher, not my writing mentor, and he sent you my essay without my knowledge or permission,' Daria said when the man passed her the phone. 'An act for which I may yet sue him.'"

  • Dystopia, by mailorderannie (part 11): "Jane turned to Daria as they got settled in the stolen car that would, along with two others, take them away from the station. 'I know I'm not the brain here, amiga, but that seemed to be an amazingly stupid thing for us to do.'"

  • A Time for Us, by aeverett (part 10): "12-year-old Daria Morgendorffer carefully nudged open the door to her older counterpart's room and crept inside. While she knew what she was doing was a serious violation of privacy, she just couldn't understand her older self now that she'd accepted her family's story."

So Are Rats Just Squirrels Without Fluffy Tails?


If you've got rats in your medicine cabinet, today is the ideal time to do something about it because it's Ratcatcher's Day! Or you could just call Sick, Sad World and get some free fame out of it.

Today is also Pi Approximation Day for all you (ugh!) math geeks out there. Celebrate by having some approximate pie!

She'd Like to Torpedo the Good Ship Lollipop


Jane isn't too happy about celebrating National Lollipop Day, but doesn't she look adorable? I'm sure she'd rather be holding up a different finger right now, though, judging from the expression on her face.

I'm also sure she'd much rather be out running, particularly since today is also the anniversary of the episode "See Jane Run," which first aired on this day in 1998. I don't think we ever saw Evan again after that episode, which makes me wonder if the shame of being rejected by Jane caused him to go into self-imposed exile somewhere. Maybe he and Nathan meet up from time to time to compare sob stories.

Fanfic Update!
  • The Bench, by dmsfanman (part 3): "Tom and Daria walked to a nearby park, which was part of the village green. There they found a park bench and sat down."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 11): "Daria's younger sister Quinn and her friend Dale Markham came in about thirty minutes later while Daria was picking up plastic cups and paper plates from the back patio. 'So, how was Daria's birthday party?' said Quinn."

  • Meg's Cool Cousin, by PerkyGoth14 (part 1): "It was just a normal day in the Griffin's house and it was quite a lazy Sunday afternoon. Stewie was reading a novel while Chris, Meg, Lois, Peter, and Brian were watching the TV."

  • One And The Same, by Princess-Pasta (parts 2 and 3): "'Daria, your father and I have been waiting for you to come downstairs for the past ten minutes. You're not eating dinner in your room again'." (Part 3)

  • QuinnxSandi, by yammcie (part 1): "Quinn was extremely tired of these losers. Jeffie, Joey, and Jamie were once again crowding around her, each begging for an ounce of her attention."

  • Something for Something, by mailorderannie (part 6): "'...And that's how you got me back?' Daria looked at Jane incredulously, her eyes narrowing a bit when Jane slipped her arm around her."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: 600 Years Afterward), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "Drunkard's wisdom holds that the first hangover is the worst you'll ever have. This is not necessarily true; some things require enough booze to kill a stable's worth of horses."

Oh, I Wish....


The hot dogs are all ready, and the contestants for the Hot Diggety Dog Eating Contest are just waiting for the arrival of the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, which celebrates its 80th birthday today! I doubt Daria would be impressed by this anniversary, but Kevin just might think it's cool.

Dancing Cheek to Cheek


The Landons are sharing a rare moment of fun in honor of the late Ginger Rogers's birth on this day in 1911. Michele would probably appreciate the quote about how Rogers "did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels."

Fanfic Update!
  • The Bench, by dmsfanman (part 3): "As she walked along the sidewalk Daria thought that the air was truly hot. This was typical for early August evenings in Lawndale. The humidity made the air sticky as well."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 22): "Jake came back from the dealership with Daria's 'new' car the Sunday following the volunteer gig at the hospital was officially termed 'over'."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 10): "As the last week of March approached, Helen knew that her eldest daughter's eighth birthday was coming up soon. Despite the fact that Daria wasn't as fiercely competitive with Quinn as she and Rita had been, she knew that her eldest would feel slighted if she had a poor party."

  • The Lawndale Stomp (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: 600 Years Afterward), by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "Shuddering as she felt male eyes on her, Daria adjusted her green bikini once again, aware that the act of adjustment was fodder for the onlookers' perverse dreams in itself. She looked down at the massive vat just below her perch and turned to her partner in crime."

  • The Pen is mightier than the Sword, by mailorderannie (COMPLETE!): "Daria laid her head on her wife's shoulder. 'You picked a good place for us to honeymoon, Jane.' 'Hey, I get to look at all the art, and you get to think about all the people being thrown in the Bastille.' Jane hugged her and kissed the top of her head."

  • Perception, by Princess_Pasta (part 7): "'Here, you're getting mixed up. You're multiplying so you have to cancel out the like factors'. So much for this getting easier, Daria thought as she leaned over, erasing the incomplete equation that Kevin had understandably gotten stuck on."

  • Something for Something, by mailorderannie (part 5): "Jane put her chin on her hand. 'I'm sorry about that, Amiga.' She frowned. 'I'm not sure what I can do to help you, but if there is anything, what's mine is yours.'"

  • Suckered, by arandomshipper (COMPLETE!): "The last bell rang. Daria didn't move from her desk, in no hurry to go anywhere. She just continued to read her novel."

  • Tom's Journal, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "Met this cool artist chick named Jane, she's a self-proclaimed artist."

  • Unnamed story (Awful Wedded Strife), by oriolessteffi (COMPLETE!): "After reading some of the horror stories on this site, I felt compelled to share the tale of my oldest niece's wedding."

Vive le Brittany!


Brittany's here to celebrate Bastille Day with that lonely foreign exchange student that she'd really prefer you not tell Kevin about. Considering the grip she's got on that sword, I'd do as she asks.

We also celebrate a double episode anniversary today, with "The Teachings of Don Jake" in 1997 and "Lane Miserables" in 1999. Both episodes are notable in that we get to see rare glimpses of the Lane family beyond Jane and Trent. Not that Jane and Trent enjoyed either experience very much.

Now That's an Eye of a Different Color!


Daria's trying out a new look for Different Colored Eyes Day, although I think using contact lenses might be cheating. Still, Quinn will be thrilled to see Daria taking her advice at last!

This is also the anniversary of the episode "Legends of the Mall," which aired on this day in 2000. The Rattling Girl of Lawndale, Metalmouth, and the House of Bad Grades all made their urban legend appearances. One day I hope to see a fanfic that unites all three!

Fanfic Update!
  • Awful Wedded Strife, by JoeMerl (COMPLETE!): "I just wanted to say that I love your website and that it was a big help in planning my daughter's wedding recently! I also enjoyed reading through your 'Weddings from Hell' section whenever I was stressed out and needed a laugh."

  • The Bench, by dmsfanman (part 2): "As she walked along the sidewalk Daria thought that the air was truly hot. This was typical for early August evenings in Lawndale."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 21): "Daria looked at the book list that had been handed out to every student in the class. They were supposed to pick one of the texts, analyse it, and submit a report on its moral intention."

  • The Date, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'What makes you think that I'm so trustworthy? I mean for all you know I could be some kind of pervert that only wants to take advantage of you.' She looked at him with more than a little annoyance. 'I feel that I know you well enough to trust you.'"

  • Perspectives, by Cap (part 1): "Frederick Trimburg ambled from his back yard when he heard the automobile slow to pull into his driveway. He was not expecting visitors."

  • Possibilities, by Sureia (part 30): "Sometimes, not always, but sometimes, it was important that everyone saw your triumph and spread the word. Whether it was a new top, or shoes, or a must have accessory, or maybe you finally snagged that one guy with the beach house and the convertible before anyone else, there were some victories that simply had to be advertised."

  • Something Something, by mailorderannie (parts 3 and 4): "In their favorite booth at Pizza King, Daria looked at Jane over her slice. 'And that's what happened this last year. I honestly don't remember this Tom guy, but so many guys have asked one or the other of us out after the news about our relationship got around, they pretty much run together.'" (Part 4)

  • That Summer, by The Central Scrutinizer (parts 12 and 13): "Martin Hart walked around the fountain three times before he noticed the old man sitting in the gazebo. He was wearing a straw hat, which he had taken off to fan himself, and a blue and white seersucker jacket." (Part 13)

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover, Part XIV: The Crossover Awakens!), by Wraith (COMPLETE!): "Rachel stood fidgeting nervously in front of Daria and Jane in the Admiral's office as Tricia bounced around in the background like a rabbit on speed. Jodie sat at a desk off to the side working on paperwork."

Kisses and Rashes


I don't know what Helen's so freaked out about: Daria and Tom are just celebrating International Kissing Day. Then again, considering the angst and drama that their first kiss caused I suppose she might have good reason.

Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Ill," which aired on this day in 1998. The cause of that mysterious rash was never really determined, but at least Daria now knows her sister can be counted on in the event of a skin care crisis.

Fanfic Update!
  • The Bench, by dmsfanman (part 1): "Daria looked at herself in the mirror as she brushed her auburn hair. She really couldn't see much without her glasses."

  • Changes (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: 600 Years Afterward), by Sureia (COMPLETE!): "Timothy O Neill was, well he was not the most... aggressive? No, no; too confrontational. Proactive! Yes, he wasn't the most proactive of men, but when required he did his best to step up."

  • DariaBrittany (Iron Chef: Brittany & Daria Swap), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 3): "Of course, confronting her opposite self was easier said than done. She had to wait until both of them had study hall, or lunch, or until school let out for the day. She was annoyed. Her opposite self continued to get the answers right."

  • Decisions, by elainefr (part 7): "'You can't just come back after all of this time and say- things like this, especially after you went mia the way that you did.' 'You broke up with me,' she accused."

  • Lost in School (World's Shortest Crossover, Part XIV: The Crossover Awakens!), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (COMPLETE!): "The new red-head haired boy she met in Yearbook was interesting, but she didn't expect his house to look... space age."

  • Mine, by Vukodlak (part 12): "It was a warm summer day in late July while Daria sat on a park bench reading her book while keeping one eye on her daughter."

  • One And The Same, by Princess_Pasta (part 1): "'Your stop'. Jonathan Morgan took another quick glance at his watch, mentally calculating how much he'd have to speed to make it to work on time. He wouldn't have to rush if not for getting such a late start."

  • See Kevin Run... His Mouth! (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: 600 Years Afterward), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "Then Daria began to go into a speech outlining the pros and cons of their decision not to expose the bye system, but not participate in it either. As they did this, Brittany fell flat on her face after doing a split, again. None of them, or Coach Morris knew of the shitstorm heading their way..."

  • Something Something, by mailorderannie (parts 1 and 2): "Daria got out of the car, dazed at what she had just done." (Part 2)

  • Thoughts about Daria, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1.2): "It was a tense dinner. But then, dinners were usually tense at the Morgendorffers. The move from Highland to Lawndale hadn't changed that."

"From outer space to in your face! Aliens walk among us!"


This is probably one of Artie's favorite holidays, World UFO Day, which commemorates the Roswell UFO incident on this day in 1947. Today would be a good day to either go to a UFO convention or seek out atomic communists from Mars. Either way, it should be fun!

Fanfic Update!
  • Another Reality, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'What are you reading that's so interesting?' she asked him as she curled up on the couch next to him to get a better look at the IPad that he was looking at."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 20): "The Morgendorffer family was sharing a pizza for dinner, and even though the pizza box was right there on the table, Helen still complimented Jake ('Great pizza, Dear,') as though he'd made it from scratch before she moved on to the small pile of mail beside her plate."

  • Halloween, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "She took a critical look at herself in the full length mirror. She still wore all black, only she'd traded in the shorts and tee for a figure hugging dress with a deep plunge in the front and long sleeves with what looked to be torn pieces of sheer black fabrics hanging from the sleeves."

  • Kindness is its own reward, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "She stretched languidly on the porch as she enjoyed the morning sun allowing the light to warm her in the coolness of its rise. This was a time she enjoyed so much."

  • Play, rewind, repeat......, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "She flipped on the light as she entered her home. Everything was just as she'd left it.....for better or worse."

  • Possibilities, by Sureia (part 29): "The more things changed, the more they stayed the same; that was Jace's opinion, or, at least, it would have been if anyone had bothered to ask for it."

  • Jane and the Unicorn, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'Don't look so grumpy; I think that this will be fun for you,' Amanda said to her daughter's petulant sitting position in the back seat."

  • JT, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'Mom, I want bacon and eggs,' the brown haired young teenager said as he plopped down at the table across from his sister after tousling her hair slightly."

  • Waking Up......, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'Tell me again why I am wasting a perfectly good Saturday afternoon in a dusty old attic,' Jane asked her brother. 'Uncle Max and Aunt Sharon, remember?' Trent supplied."

Frankly, My Dear...Gahhh!


Helen and Jake are looking rather cute together in this alter ego from Gone with the Wind, which was first published on this day in 1936. It's sadly appropriate, too--like Scarlett and Rhett, Helen and Jake seem to work well together in some respects while in others they're incredibly dysfunctional.

Today is also the anniversary of the episode The Big House in 1997. Thanks to this episode we know that Daria can play the harmonica, that Mr. DeMartino has a heart condition, and that Helen and Jake's grasp on fairness and justice is shaky at best. More than that, though, it presented us with a mystery that fandom has never been able to truly solve: who gave Daria a ride home at the beginning of the episode, and what was she doing out so late?

Counseling and Countdowns


Ready for a vacation? Why not try The Retreat, introduced on this day in 2000 in the episode "Psycho Therapy." We got to see all kinds of insights into the Morgendorffer family, not to mention Tom Sloane's previously-unknown dance skills. Anyone wonder if he still gets fan mail from those inmates?

Also on this day in 1998, Daria and Jane hosted the MTV special "Top 10 Animated Videos Countdown." During the show, they make a comment about Freud, who was the founder of the field of psychotherapy. Coincidence, or--yeah, coincidence. Still kinda cool, though.

Fanfic Update!
  • Daria Dinkley, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "They were standing just outside the Mystery Machine with the side door slid open. 'You sure were smart to figure out all that stuff about "old man McGee" being the one to swindle those old people out of their money Velma.'"

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (parts 9a - 9e): "The implosion of Mrs. Crush's ballet class did not mean an end to the damage done to psyches and friendships since Miss Genevieve's sacking. If there weren't as many physical injuries as Daria's knee, there were plenty of bruised feelings and damaged friendships." (Part 9b) (Part 9c) (Part 9d) (Part 9e)

  • Dystopia, by mailorderannie (part 10): "Gary shifted uneasily from side to side. Guarding the local Fox affiliate was usually boring - everyone knew what happened when someone attacked one of the Donald's pet agencies - but he'd heard about that whole team disappearing a week ago."

  • A Friendship Past, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'You look great tonight,' he openly admired how the soft green of the top that she wore brought out the fleck of gold in her brown eyes."

  • Possibilities, by Sureia (part 28): "It should have gone without saying that Daria did not like Mondays, but, then; did anyone? Did anyone out there spend their entire weekend thinking 'I can't wait for this to be over! Bring on Monday!'?"

  • Stolen and Forced Paths: 1986: November, by macross (part 1): "'Use your Fucking turn signal you stupid bastard!' Jake Morgendorffer screamed out the window of his '79 Caprice station wagon."

  • Thoughts about Daria, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1.1): "'Did we move?' Daria asked. Jake recognized her sarcasm. He remembered what his wife had said the previous night."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef : MMORPG, Lawndale style), by Waylander (part 17): "Darlene was walking through the old streets of the town, looking through the decrepit storefronts. The devastating combination of the war and the plague turned Drammarstadt into a ghost town."

I'm Sure Quinn Didn't Enjoy Her Role At All


Sandi doesn't seem to be enjoying Swim a Lap Day, but that may be because she's been swimming laps for hours now. It takes a lot of hard work to maintain a size negative four, you know! Fortunately, she's got Coach Quinn at her side to torture motivate her. Swim, you cow, swim!

Fanfic Update!
  • Black Cloaks of Lawndale, by Waylander (part 28): "When Claire Defoe entered the teachers' lounge, the room was buzzing with the usual early morning chaos."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 19): "'Trent?' Daria asked, surprised to find the old Plymouth and its owner out the front of the school building when class let out. 'Hey Daria,' Trent greeted with a smile. Then he frowned. 'Where's Janey?' he asked."

  • Dammit Daria, by SexshiTiTePaNtZ (part 6): "Jane threw a dirty tarp aside to reveal a broken bike frame, 'throw that away. I want it gone today.' 'Janey why are we cleaning the garage?'"

  • The Daria/Quinn Hentai Ship Fic, by PrecambrianStudios (COMPLETE!): "'Whoa whoa whoa! Hold on!' Jane cried to the heavens. 'Where the hell am I? Where'd everyone go? And can someone explain to me why in the name of God am I wearing a squid costume?!'"

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 8a and 8b): "It still hurt the following morning, and it wasn't just the pain in her knee. She'd given her best on the dance floor, had tripped through no fault of her own, and then instead of getting a little bit of comfort and understanding from her dance teacher, she'd been given an unjustified tongue-lashing." (Part 8b)

  • Decisions, by elainefr (part 5): "'Jane?' 'You got her.' 'It's me. I needed to ask you something....' Jane waited sensing something in the air."

  • Family Ties, by Princess_Pasta (part 5): "Jake Morgendorffer never considered himself to be a bad person. He prided himself on being the exact opposite of his late father which meant that he went out of his way to be respectful, kind, and observant. When he became a father himself, he vowed to never make his daughters feel as unloved and unwanted as he felt growing up."

  • Happy Birthday, April 1984, by macross (part 1): "'Happy Birthday dear Quinn, Happy Birthday too you,' sang the gathered group in the small living room of the Alexandria VA second floor apartment."

They Both Frown on "Keeping It Loose," Too


Trent's off to college thanks to the G.I. Bill, which was signed into law on this day in 1944. I have a hard time picturing Trent either joining the army or attending college, though. Both tend to require people to wake up sometime before three in the afternoon, after all.

"It was the peak of tourist season, when a mangled body washed up on the shore, scaring the beachcombers...."


Daria and Jane are going to celebrate the anniversary of the 1975 release date of the movie Jaws by going to see the Great White Shark. Or, rather, the Great White Shark Tooth as Presented by the Great Delusional Woman.

Also, happy anniversary to Outpost Daria Reborn, which came online on this day in 2014.

Fanfic Update!
  • Changes (Pasta's Never-ending Ideas Thread!), by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "A light breeze blew across the Raft campus, the brief wind a necessary relief from the unseasonably warm Boston temperatures."

  • Dammit Daria, by SexshiTiTePaNtZ (part 5): "Daria woke up to the feeling of Jane's chin nuzzling the top of her head. Jane was cuddling Daria in her sleep, arms encircling the shorter woman's petite waist."

  • James the Lesser Presents Vinny Lane, by James the Lesser (part 41): "Vinny and Daria sit at a booth at the Pizza Prince sharing a slice or two. 'I must say,' Vinny sets down his slice. 'I'm honored you decided to spend your valuable time on a Saturday night with me. What happened to college applications?'"

  • A Time For Us, by aeverett (part 9): "Daria sat across from her parents, sipping her soda slowly. She knew this interrogation could go on past 2 AM as they'd only just gotten down to the Dutchman Inn's 24 hour dinner after her younger self, Quinn, and Jane had been put to sleep upstairs."

Another Remake?!


Brittany appears to be recreating a scene similar to the famous one in the movie Psycho, which was released on this day in 1960. It seems that Brittany has relented on her "no nude scenes" rule, unless someone convinced her that it was, in fact, crucial to her character.

Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Too Cute," which first aired on this day in 1997. Quinn contemplates plastic surgery, and Daria receives a pair of fake boobs. Good times all around!

Fanfic Update!
  • The Conversation, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'It's ridiculous.' 'Absurd really.' 'Because we're friends and nothing more.' They looked at each other, then away."

  • Family Ties, by Princess_Pasta (part 4): "An early morning jog sounded like a great idea until Quinn realized that a) required her to wake up before 12:00 PM and b)she had the stamina of a seventy-year old chainsmoker."

  • Standstill, by Princess_Pasta (part 2): "Nothing could've prepared Harold 'Axl' Williams for the afternoon he faced. For starters, he didn't anticipate having to close the shop in the middle of the day. He definitely didn't expect to be held hostage in his own place of business."

He's Rebellent!


Mack's in a revolutionary mood for the anniversary of Che Guevara's birth in 1928. It's a cool-looking alter ego, but I'm not sure a boy who can't even convince Kevin to stop calling him annoying nicknames is really the best candidate for fighting social justice on a global level. Still, I can think of worse characters to take on the role.

Roses are Red....


It's Red Rose Day, so take those flowers out of the garbage can and give them to someone special! Unless that someone special stands you up, in which case go ahead and trash those things.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 17): "The Spiral, Jane and Daria were planning on going for a burger – no, not one for all of them to share – after the band had finished their single set at McGrundy's."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (parts 7a and 7b): "Daria went to school the next day with a feeling of excitement about the Holiday Pageant.

  • Family Ties, by Princess_Pasta (parts 1 - 3): "It was 3:00 PM on a balmy, July afternoon when Daria Morgendorffer's left came to a screeching halt." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • Quinn's Code 16: The Geek's Expose, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 2): "'... And then you open the window and say, "Life is a meaningless descent into the void." Then you jump, and on the way down you scream, "Now I understand, I understand everything,"' Daria said. 'That's quite existential,' Jennifer mused. 'That's the point!' Daria grumbled."

  • Trouble in the Future (Chapter 1), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 2): "James approached the Marie Green vehicle. He swiped his card on the port. Access Denied. Marie Green Agents only. 'Of course,' he said. But there were still other ways."

  • What If The Storm Killed Them?, by The Madi Hatter (part 6): "Jane and Will where cooking breakfast when they heard feet coming down the stairs. 'Good Morning big brother!' Jane sang without noticing it was Daria and Trent, Hip to hip with Daria looking half asleep."

"Just click your heels and say, 'There's no place like home.' Only do it outside; this is the end of the line."


The Cowardly Lion is here to wish the late Judy Garland, star of the movie adaptation of The Wizard of Oz and born on this day in 1922, a happy birthday. Of course, we all know that's really Mr. O'Neill in there, but the "cowardly" part still applies. The episode "Legends of the Mall" referenced Garland in a Sick, Sad World bit:
"It's legal, and tender, but someone's getting shortchanged! Little cross dressers and the women who love them, coming up next on Sick, Sad World."

Daria: If that woman were Judy Garland, this might make sense on a couple of levels.

But Don't Poison Your Best Friend!


Happy Name Your Poison Day, everyone! Whether you're sprinkling cyanide into Kevin's nutty-butter and banana sandwich or splitting a bottle of drain cleaner with Luhrman, just be sure you know the name of the poison you're ingesting. The paramedics will want to know, after all.

This is also National Best Friends Day, which is perfect for Daria and Jane. Except when Daria's pissed at Jane for having a boyfriend. Or when Jane's pissed at Daria for stealing her boyfriend. Or--okay, so it was a kind of rocky friendship at times, but it seemed to work out all right in the end!

Fanfic Update!
  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 6): "For some reason or other, Mrs. Crush was forced to lighten up on her students. Jessia, Linda, Gail, and Farrah wanted to believe that it was because it was because Mrs. Crowe had convinced her to ease up on her students."

  • Dystopia, by mailorderannie (part 9): "Mack, Daria, and Jane were all bent down, sifting through the rubble that had once been the Guardian's Lawndale offices. 'Tell me why we're getting all dusty and disturbing your co-worker's final resting place, again?'"

  • What If The Storm Killed Them?, by The Madi Hatter (part 5): "A year and a half ago in a small Italian town. Jane is setting up her table at an art fair as she see's a tall, slender man looking her way. 'Oh no...' She thought as the man started to walk towards her booth."

Or At Least Take the Rubber Thing off the End!


Today is National Gardening Exercise Day, but unless you want an exercise in futility then I don't recommend you follow the Fashion Club's example by planting crutches or other inanimate objects. Trees, vegetables, and flowers would all be more useful and, frankly, less weird.

Old Maids and Old Arguments


Quinn's looking very...mature...because today is Old Maid's Day. Apparently she forgot Brittany's advice about sunscreen. Her hair still looks bouncy, but I suspect the color comes out of a bottle now.

Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Aunt Nauseam," which first aired on this day in 2001. Erin almost gets divorced, Helen and her sisters almost have an epic feud, and Daria and Quinn almost bond.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 16): "'But it's fun! And it looks good on your transcript,' Jodie insisted, trying to get Daria to join her in working on the yearbook. Specifically, for some reason, the photography meeting."

  • Delicately Balanced Daria, by Meester_Lee (parts 1 - 6): "Daria Morgendorffer stood near the hall phone and tapped her foot. She really needed to make a call for school. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible; Quinn was using it." (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4) (Part 5) (Part 6)

  • Lights Out (Pasta's Never-ending Ideas Thread!), by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "'You see the new chick?' Jane Lane looked up from her latest handiwork, a crude stick-and-poke tattoo of a mushroom, to focus her attention on her unlikely visitor."

  • Unnamed story (IC Runaway Daria), by Waylander (part 5): "'Have it your way, my fair-weathered friend. I hoped to settle things peacefully, but if you want blood I'll be happy to oblige,' Captain Blood stepped forward and activated the force-blade."

  • What If The Storm Killed Them?, by The Madi Hatter (part 4): "The car trip with Daria, Trent, Quin and Nick was amusing. Between Daria's sarcastic remarks towards her sisters business troubles and the guys then laughing as Trent tries not to swerve into the next lane, it was hard not to at least slightly enjoy yourself."

  • The Wounds That Never Heal, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'Can I make a suggestion? Don't put up any signs inside Legion Tower, or on the premises.' Kelsi Sunma, the swarthy-skinned coordinator for the Lawndale Food Bank, looked up at Jane from her tablet."

We are, Like, Not Amused!


Brittany is helping to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, which happened on this day in 1953. God help the UK if Brittany ever really ends up in charge there. I'm thinking the first royal decree would involve mandatory cheerleading practices.

And What Would Ms. Li Think?


Mr. DeMartino had better put that cigarette out, because it's World No Tobacco Day and it's probably a good idea for him to quit. Never mind his health; the cost alone is surely more than his tiny paycheck can handle.

Fanfic Update!
  • Dreams Rewoven, by RLobinske (part 6): "Christmas morning, and brightly colored wrapping paper and gift bags littered the floor as the four sat around the living room sipping eggnog."

  • Meant to Find You, by PrecambrianStudios (part 2): "The last of the party guests were gone; the only sign anyone had ever been there were the piles of confetti and stains from the spilt punch decorating the floor."

  • What If The Storm Killed Them?, by The Madi Hatter (part 3): "The next two weeks where what you may call, eventful. People in and out to see the recuperating Daria and Trent. Nobody stayed for more than a week except Jane, who was in a hotel near by."

Racing Dust AND Compost Dirt? Ewwww!


Looks like Stacy just won the Indianapolis 500, which takes place today. I don't know what Waif Magazine would say about that dirt on her face, but I don't think Stacy really cares right now.

This is also Learn About Composting Day, so I'd suggest talking to Willow to get some advice. Or, if she's getting a little frustrated with the hippie lifestyle, you might want to ask someone else.

"...Always wear your sunscreen!"


Looks like Stacy forgot it was Sun Screen Day, or else Quinn forgot to bring enough for the whole Fashion Club again. Either way, she's definitely not going to earn Sandi's approval for this little faux pas.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 15): "Neither of the two friends were quite sure how it happened, but the ability Mr O'Neill had to hear whatever he wanted in whatever you were saying was surely to blame."

  • Meant to Find You, by PrecambrianStudios (part 1): "'You know, somehow I never expected mom and dad to pimp me out,' said the girl with brown hair held together by a band."

  • What If The Storm Killed Them?, by The Madi Hatter (part 2): "Daria opened her eyes slowly reveling a white room with a faint smell of bleach. Still groggy from waking up from however long she was asleep she started to gain memory of what had last happened"

Happy Towel Day, Hoopy Froods!


Mrs. Johanssen clearly knows where her towel is for Towel Day, and we all hope it stays right where it is. Today is the holiday for fans of the late Douglas Adams, whose Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series has been referenced in various Daria fanfics.

Appropriately, today is also Geek Pride Day, and this fandom has some of the best geeks I've ever met. Er, that's the "likes geeky stuff" kind of geek, not the "biting heads off chickens" kind of geek. Just so you know.

And You Thought Tiffany Was the Slowest One!


Barch is dressed appropriately for World Turtle Day, and this actually kind of explains how Barch's husband got away so easily: it's not like she would have been able to catch him after he left. Then again, maybe this alter ego is simply the result of a strange science experiment gone very wrong. You can be sure that she'll blame Mack for it, though.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 14): "'The Yaegers are coming for the weekend,' Helen informed Daria when questioned on what she was doing getting out one of the many kitchen appliances that, despite it never getting used, they'd kept when they moved from Highland."

  • Dystopia, by mailorderannie (part 8): "Daria turned. 'Jane! Damnit, I told you to stay there and be safe!' 'And I told you that if you weren't right behind me, I'd be back to get you!'"

  • Morning Routines, by JPAGC (COMPLETE!): "The alarm bell was irritating. For the melody (if one could call it that), for the hour, for the necessity but, above all, for the fact it was taking her of the warmth of sleep and dreams."

  • The Wedding of Daria, Princess of Zippotron, by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "Queen Quinn, of the House of Morgendorffer, sub-house of Barksdale, of the Great Zippotronian Empire, gave her royal command to her loyal subject, loyal in public at least and only up to a point."

  • What If The Storm Killed Them?, by The Madi Hatter (part 1): "Daria laid out on the plush love-seat in her Seattle apartment typing. She was 26 years old writing her third novel."

No Pity for This Fool


Mr. O'Neill only wishes he could be this awesome. In reality, he is perhaps the biggest fool Mr. T, who was born on this day in 1952, has ever pitied. For more Daria/Mr. T. fun, see Smijey's The Mr. T. Trilogy.

And speaking of fools, today also marks the fifteenth anniversary of the episode "One J at a Time." Between Jake's squirrel-catching antics and Quinn's doomed-from-the-start search for a boyfriend, there was plenty of foolishness to go around in that one.

Who Turned Out the Lights?


The entire Lane clan is recreating New England's Dark Day, which occurred on this day in 1780. I don't think anyone accidentally tried to use anyone else as a pillow during that event, but then again who can say?

In more recent anniversaries, the start of Lawndale Stalker's fanfic "Blood on the Asphalt" took place on this day in 1991. Read the story to find out more!

Fanfic Update!
  • Transformation (Pasta's Never-ending Ideas Thread!), by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "'So, this is where all of my coffee cups have run off to'. Daria Morgendorffer shook her head as she took one from the cabinet, already on her third cup of the day."

Now She's Ready for that Pizza with Entrails


Jane is, appropriately enough, portraying Jane. That is, Jane from the Tarzan movies, as portrayed by the late Maureen O'Sullivan, who was born on this day in 1911. I guess she decided that even though dying her hair didn't work out, she could still find some way to get in touch with her inner tiger.

Pay No Attention to the Educator Behind the Curtain!


Ms. Li, as the Wizard of Oz, commands you all to wish a happy birthday to L. Frank Baum, who was born on this day in 1856. Baum, of course, created the Oz book series that was referenced in several Daria episodes. Ms. Li as the Wizard actually works quite well--lots of bluster and bluffing but little real competence when it comes down to it.

This is also International Day of Families, so celebrate by following the example of the well-adjusted Morgendorffers--er, I mean the Landons--okay, bad idea...the Lanes--oops, no, but how about the Taylors....

You know what? Forget it. I give up.

Fanfic Update!
  • Consequences, by Zetor (part 1): "Daria sat leaning against the side of the storage shed on the school’s roof, staring up at the clouds with a relaxed smile that she would be mortified for anyone but the person beside her to see."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 13): "As soon as Daria opened the front door, she heard the strained tones of Helen talking to Rita on the phone, and winced. 'Damn,' Daria said, and promptly closed the door again."

  • See Jane Date, by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "Jane smoothed down the front of her blue mini skirt and gave her sleeveless red top a couple tugs not really trying to cover her bare tummy. She gathered her thick, raven hair up tight on her head and secured the mass with a wide golden scrunchie, all before smirking at herself in the mirror."

  • Survival of the DoctorDonna, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (COMPLETE!): "They had left the alternate Darlig Ulv Stranden, and had returned to their home universe. 'I thought we could try the planet Felspoon,' Donna said. 'Just because. What a good name, Felspoon. Apparently, it's got mountains that sway in the breeze. Mountains that move. Can you imagine?'"

Does This Shamrock Make Me Look Fat?


Tiffany's looking more energetic than usual on this Leprechaun Day, and I didn't even know she was Irish. I suppose it could work, though: gold is really shiny, after all.

Let's hope the luck of the leprechauns can cancel out the bad luck of Friday the 13th, but if not then you'd better watch out. The last thing you'd want to do today is walk under a ladder or break a mirror...unless it's that awful one in the girls' bathroom that adds at least two pounds. The Fashion Club might consider destroying that one a public service.

Let's Hear it for Surreal Nurses!


Jane's less than thrilled to celebrate the anniversary of Salvador Dali's birth in 1904, but that's probably because she's painted one too many reproductions...or should I say forgeries? I still think that Gary is shiftier than he seems.

If her arm keeps hurting, Jane might want to take advantage of School Nurse Day and visit Lawndale High's Nurse Chase. Unless Nurse Chase is too busy collecting DNA samples on behalf of Ms. Li.

Fanfic Update!
  • Doctor Who: Unexpected, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "Tamsin Davis was bored. It had been a boring night, waiting in the TARDIS console room, while the Doctor was on his misguided attempt at 'fighting crime' in the American city they had landed in a few months ago."

  • Doctor Who: Ways Clara Oswald ..., by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 3): "The Doctor looked as Clara walked down the Street. 'Let me be brave,' she said. 'No! There has to be a way to defeat a Quantum Shade! Just because a method hasn't been found, doesn't mean that they can't be defeated,' he thought."

  • Stones Have a Way, by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "Before closing her school locker, Daria made a last long look up and down the hallway as it cleared out after lunch period. She didn't see the slight, blonde girl in crisp prep-school uniform for whom she was looking." (Epilogue)

Giddy-up, Helen!


Helen and Jake are all ready to compete in the Kentucky Derby today, but I think they might have some trouble. First of all, Jake's probably too big to be a jockey. Secondly, the Kentucky Derby probably requires that the contestants be actual, you know, horses. Still, good luck to those two and good luck to the rest of you in getting that very disturbing image out of your heads.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 12): "When the Morgendorffer family were packing up their house in Texas, it was decided that they would also do a thorough clean-out – something they hadn't done the previous couple of times they'd moved, and almost didn't this time either."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (parts 5a and 5b): "The school year ended in early June. Jake got a promotion to assistant sales manager, and Helen began to go to the office for a few hours weekdays, often taking Ronnie with her." (Part 5b)

  • James the Lesser Presents Vinny Lane, by James the Lesser (part 40): "Listening to Daria fret over scholarships made Vinny depressed. He had thought about college since Daria pushed him on it. He really did look up various art schools across the country."

  • Lawndale 2021 Season Three, by Anguirus1955 (part 10): "Somewhere on the moon, inside a large blocky structure, two blocky cubic beings, one purple and one green, sat in chairs while looking at a large screen. On the screen were two ugly spikey creatures."

Communists: The Ultimate Team Players


Mr. O'Neill is condemning the bourgeoisie in honor of Karl Marx's birth on this day in 1818. In the immortal words of Brittany Taylor, "Go, commies, go!"

It's Better to be Feared than to Teach


Mr. DeMartino is breaking the bad news to Mrs. Bennett that even though today is National Teacher Day, there is no pay raise on the horizon. However, surely having your own holiday makes up for having to deal with Kevin and Brittany on an almost-daily basis, doesn't it?

No? Yeah, I suppose not.

Today is also the anniversary of Niccolo Machiavelli's birth in 1469, so it's time to stop putting off taking over that country you've had your eye on.

Fanfic Update!
  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (parts 4c and 4d): "It was a cold and dreary day at Grimmauld Place. The sun was hidden by thick clouds and a cold wind swayed the branches of the trees and bushes of the small, ill-kept park across the street from the town house." (Part 4d)

  • Past Lives (Ideas!), by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "Lawndale Haven House was one of only two youth homeless shelters in the tiny Maryland suburb, something that Daria Morgendorffer attributed to the fact that people wrongly assumed nobody could be homeless in such a wealthy area."

Dances with Trees


Daria's reluctantly celebrating International Dance Day, although I give her about ten seconds before the lion gets a good, solid kick someplace unpleasant. I could never figure out why (spoiler alert) Mr. O'Neill kept singling Daria out, but maybe it's better not to think too much about it.

Today is also Arbor Day, so take the opportunity to plant a tree. Or a memorial crutch. Your choice.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 11): "'Feeling bad about not feeling worse equals good,' Trent read from one of Daria's notebooks when they were giving their fingers a break."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 4b): "His last interview with Miss Boudreaux cost him any confidence in her competence. He went to one of her supervisors and demanded and got a new senior investigator."

  • Lawndale Z, by Kuriamo22 (part 7): "The last thing Jake remembered was excrutiating pain in his chest, and then the ground coming up to hit him. Then blackness, and then here he was standing on a stone path surrounded by clouds."

  • Stones Have a Way, by EntrancedCat (part 6): "'Oh no, Berit, too bad,' Quinn said as Berit opened the little Mystery Date door. 'You drew the dud dude. You lose.'"

At Least She Remembered Her Lipstick


Sandi's taking things a little too far for World Penguin Day, unless maybe she greatly misunderstood what Waif meant by having a cool outfit. Penguins have a long and (cough) notorious history as a fandom in-joke, and I think it would be best to leave it at that. This is supposed to be a family-friendly blog, after all.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 10): "It was picture day. The day that students of the school were paraded in front of a camera, and their current physical appearance was recorded so that it could be compared to the pictures received the previous year."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (parts 4 and 4.25): "That August, Daria entered first grade. Things were different now. She now got graded for her behavior and schoolwork, and her Mom and her Dad told her that they expected her to work hard, pay attention to her teachers, and try to get good marks." (Part 4.25)

  • A Room With View To Die For (Crossovers Still Crossing Over), by Kuriamo22 (COMPLETE!): "Lady Daria Anne Morgendorffer-Sloane, a middle aged greying auburn woman, sat quietly at her desk late one night finishing up some paperwork when something on the flat panel TV on the wall caught her attention. She looked up just in time to see a news report of some sort of police standoff from a hotel in America."

  • Trouble in the Future (Chapter 1), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "Marie Green College was quiet at 1:30 in the morning. Mostly quiet, that is except for a few inebriated souls who were returning after a night dancing (and/or making out) at the University's Bistro."

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover, Part XIV: The Crossover Awakens!), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'I don't believe this,' Daria growled, as she and Jane turned from the water fountain to see Quinn and the other Fashion Club girls headed down the hall. 'Have those fabric-addled fools NO shame?'"

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover, Part XIV: The Crossover Awakens!), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "There was some odd aerial acticity over the islet that held Titans Tower. Not that aerial activity in and of itself was odd; it was the fact that said aerial activity consisted of Clark "Superman" Kent (actively glaring through a scorched hole in his cape), Connor "Superboy" Kent (Looking a little bewildered back at Superman through the same hole), and Tom "Ultra" Sloane (whose expression of horror was likely visible from Oa)."
