How's She Going to Hold Her Pom-Poms?


Brittany's sporting a new look for director Tim Burton's birthday. Burton, who directed Edward Scissorhands and many others, turns 58 today. Looking at those hands, I'd say that Kevin's going to be a little more careful about the things he says to Brittany for awhile. Or not.

Fanfic Update!
  • Black Cloaks of Lawndale, by Waylander (part 29): "Jane did her best to suppress restlessness and annoyance. Her morning runs helped to deal the physical tension, but the restriction on drawing, painting and sculpting was slowly driving the young artist crazy."

  • Camped Out, by Kristen Bealer (part 1): "Daria stared gloomily out the window of the Tank as Trent drove them to the last place she ever wanted to return to. Okay, that wasn't quite true. Camp Grizzly beat Highland in terms of horrible places to spend one's childhood, but not by all that much."

  • Clarity, by Zetor (parts 6 and 7): "This was a mistake. I feel sick. My head is killing me and I think I might throw up, but that's not the worst of it. I feel empty." (Part 7)

  • The Date, by elainefr (part 2): "First crush? First love? That can't be right...I would have known...Wouldn't I?"

  • Eumenide, by Rémi (COMPLETE!): "–I need my beauty sleep. Goodnight, Daria. –'night, Quinn. Somehow, Daria doubted that the night would be good."

  • Me And My Monkey, by Dennis (part 2): "Dave must have seen something in my face, though, because his first words on my arrival home were, 'Way to go, dude.' 'Yes,' I said. 'I successfully got coffee.'"

  • Sonoma Coma, by jtranser (part 23): "'You realize that I will require extra satisfaction for doing this, of course.' 'Naturally. Ordinary satisfaction just will not do. Don't worry, Upchuck, I have several specially bred maggots for just such an emergency.'"

  • Standstill, by Princess_Pasta (parts 4 and 5): "It was going on 2:00 AM and Helen Morgendorffer was deep in the midst of a caffeine induced panic. Scattered about the kitchen table were countless number of legal briefs, their folders long since discarded as she made a frantic search for her newest casework." (Part 5)

"Gee, Quinn, if you're so smart maybe--AUGHHHHH!"


Sandi's celebrating Ride the Wind Day, but it doesn't look like it was by choice. I have a sneaking suspicion new Fashion Club President Quinn's feeling very smug right now. I wonder if Sandi's going to follow in Roger's footsteps and land on a cow.

It's a Good Day for Old People and Lawyers


Brittany's reading with seniors again for Senior Citizen's Day, and I bet she hasn't forgotten her own advice about wearing sunscreen. Daria may or may not be visiting Mrs. Blaine today, depending on whether or not she's written a new Melody Powers installment.

This also marks the anniversary of the founding of the American Bar Association in 1878, and I'm sure Helen would be observing this important day if she wasn't so busy at work. She'll probably have a few minutes free next week to celebrate, though! Maybe!

Fanfic Update!
  • Clarity, by Zetor (parts 4 and 5): "Saturday mornings aren't much different than weekdays, except Father is at the table reading the paper. I go through the routine. Pills under the tongue, take a drink, and spit them out when no one's looking." (Part 5)

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 27): "Freemont was deader than Lawndale, and a hundred miles of road-trip to the gig only served to further splinter, disrupt, and fracture relations between Max the drummer and Nick the bassist."

  • Daria: High School Reunion, by Serrallonga (part 5a): "DARIA: (reading) “The First Terrace”... (to herself) gee, this place seems familiar to m... (She stops talking as she notices her reflection at the glass window, realizing she's wearing a white and blue cheerleader outfit. She rolls her eyes with a boring expression. A hard rain starts to fall)"

  • It's a Wonderful List, by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "Mr. O'Neill wound down the teen self-esteem class with the confidence of a teacher with only a couple minutes left in his session, 'And so, for tomorrow, I want you to make a list of ten ways the world would be a sadder place if you weren't in it.'"

  • Me And My Monkey, by Dennis (part 1): "My name is Tom Sloane and I was twenty-one years old the first time I made love to another man."

  • Snippets of Modern Times for the Lawndale Set... (Scenes that should be: Pacific Rimmers), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "In the 'secure' building that was Lawndale High, Daria and Jane were at Daria's locker, the pair ignored one of the myriad security cameras that suddenly fell from the ceiling and shattered on the ground."

  • Standstill, by Princess_Pasta (part 3): "The sun was just starting to dip below the horizon by the time that Jesse Moreno made it to Casa Lane. He easily locked the doors on his rusting van, even though he knew that the chances of it being stolen were slim to none, before heading inside."

  • Stolen and Forced Paths: 1986: November, by macross (part 3): "'Just Another day. It's just like the last one. Here I am back in mother's kitchen pouring something that isn't cream in my coffee.' Rita thought as she nearly overfilled the little red and pink Meissen tea cup with cognac."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: Daria and Quinn Roommates), by JPAGC (COMPLETE!): "The two young women stopped by the entrance of a large appartment building. Jane looked at it with interest."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: Daria and Quinn Roommates), by Serrallonga (COMPLETE!): "(At the Morgendorffer house) (DARIA goes downstairs. JAKE has just hung up the phone) DARIA: Bye dad, I'm going to Jane's."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef : MMORPG, Lawndale style), by Waylander (part 18): "When Darlene decided to find another artist to talk to, she learned it's easier said than done. She methodically searched the tents, only to find them empty."

Spuds in Space!


Daria's enjoying a break from frozen lasagna in honor of National Potato Day. I'm thinking maybe over-processed pasta cubes don't sound quite so bad anymore, do they?

Today is also the anniversary of Gene Roddenberry's birth in 1921, and as there are quite a few Star Trek fans in Daria fandom I think it's worth mentioning. Aside from echopapa's Memory Lane, I can't think of any crossover fics off the top of my head. Can you? Bonus points if they feature potatoes!

Some Books Are More Equal Than Others


Young Daria's all set to celebrate the anniversary of Animal Farm, which was first published on this day in 1945. That's assuming that Helen doesn't snatch it away, and Skip leaves her alone long enough to read it, and Amelia stops talking so she can focus on the book. I'm afraid it's not really looking too good, Daria.

Fanfic Update!
  • Meant to Find You, by PrecambrianStudios (part 3a): "Three pages into an essay on 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,' Shona received a call, her phone ringing to the theme from Doctor Who. She flipped it open. 'Yyyello?' she said cheerfully into it."

  • One And The Same, by Princess_Pasta (part 6): "The low sound of Earth, Wind, and Fire filtered over the radio as the Lexus sped down the highway, the early morning drive free of traffic or congestion. It was much too early to be awake let alone dressed and on the road, at least in Daria's opinion, but she didn't have a say in the matter."

  • Possibilities, by Sureia (part 32): "It wasn't often that clients had him feeling nervous before an introduction, but this was a fairly unique situation, and he was honestly curious about it. Straightening his clothes, Jake took a calming breath,checked his watch one last time, and opened the doors, smiling politely."

Relaxing and Music Do Go Hand in Hand!


Helen and Jake are taking a rare opportunity to kick back for Relaxation Day, but I wouldn't count on it lasting more than a few minutes. If it's not Helen's phone ringing, it'll be Jake going into a Mad Dog-related rant.

Meanwhile, Daria and Jane might be on their way to Alternapalooza, which apparently began on this day in 1997. Portable toilets and sitting on the ground...it doesn't get any better than that!

Does She Even Know Which is Which?


Brittany's still trying to figure out whether or not she should be participating in Left Hander's Day, and I think it might take her awhile. If you're a leftie, then enjoy your holiday! I'm sure it completely makes up for the smudged ink and ill-fitting scissors you have to deal with.

Fanfic Update!
  • Bear Spray, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'Yeah, I was up there – Silverton Island. They only allow a hundred people to come up every year – yes, you need the coin to get the permit, and my father knows people in the Canadian Government. He's known Justin since they were kids, so it wasn't a problem.'"

  • Crowd Control, by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "Sandi pulled her yellow Mitsubishi convertible into the back of the club. There was nowhere to park, though. The lot was full up."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 26): "'So, you're going to be dating my brother,' Jane said happily. 'And having Jesse for a model finally cured you of that crush,' Daria countered with a smirk."

  • Daria: High School Reunion, by Serrallonga (part 4c): "WONG: (singing along) Hey, I just met you- and this is cra-zy, but here's my number-so call me maybe... DARIA: (raising her voice) EXCUSE ME, Mr... (reading the driver ID card) WONG?"

  • Lost & Found, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "'Hey.' 'Hey.' 'Jane's not here.' They looked at each other until she felt compelled to look away. He started to shut the door, but stopped when she spoke."

  • Two Under Par, by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): "'Look out!' Jake looked up at the shout, but it was too late--pain exploded against his forehead and he staggered to the ground with a groan. The throbbing was so intense, he could barely even see."

Why Did the President Cross the Road?


Kevin is amused by Presidential Joke Day, and I can't think of a bigger joke than Kevin as George Washington. Just like in Mrs. Stoller's story, though, he's not very focused.

Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Just Add Water," which first aired on this day in 1999. It may have been a so-so episode, but some of those Sick, Sad World bits during the marathon were pretty funny.

Did You Know He Was Jane Fonda's Father in Real Life, Too?


Daria would like a bit of peace and quiet so she can enjoy Book Lover's Day, but she isn't likely to get it. She might have better luck if she read Walden, which was published on this day in 1854. Or, rather, she might have better luck if she goes to Walden and enjoys the isolation. I'm sure something would end up ruining it for her, though. Either Quinn would find her or she'd find out no one will deliver pizza to the wilderness. It's always something, isn't it?

Fanfic Update!
  • La La La La La, by GrrHatLet (COMPLETE!): "It had been such a quiet evening. 'BUT MO-OM!' 'Had' being the optimum word."

They Must Really Have Bonded Over "Gone With the Wind"!


Daria and Quinn are sharing a tender moment on Sisters Day, and their relationship is so close and loving that the only image of them hugging comes from a fantasy sequence. I wonder if Quinn prefers to celebrate Cousins Day instead.

Ninety-Nine Bottles of Celebration!


Brittany's ready to help everyone celebrate International Beer Day, although she's not sure if it's Beer Day around the world or a day to celebrate imported as well as domestic beers. Kevin, I'm sure, doesn't care and will simply observe the holiday until he can't see straight.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 25): "'Mr Morgendorffer, do you have a tarp, or a couple of old newspapers, that I could borrow?' Jane asked. 'Uh, sure, but... what for?'"

  • Daria: High School Reunion, by Serrallonga (part 4a and 4b): "MELODY gets out of the car, followed by two police agents. They only exchange a quick look: there's no need to talk, they all know the score and are ready for it. MEL nods and the agents start walking to the entrance." (Part 4b)

  • One And The Same, by Princess_Pasta (part 5): "Monday rolled around and with it the news of Brittany and Kevin's explosive break-up. Daria stayed out of the rumor mill but that didn't stop her from listening with amusement as her classmates exaggerated the events of the party."

  • The Phantom of the Library, by neonhomer (part 8): "'You've really done it now.' said Chris to Matt as they walked into the courtyard of Lawndale High. 'Why do you say that?' 'I saw Abby this morning.'"

  • Stolen and Forced Paths: 1986: November, by macross (part 2): "'She's a strong little lady isn't she?' A kind voice startled Jake from his pained thoughts. Looking up from the incubator where his daughter slept hooked up to a respirator in the NICU, he was greeted by a warm smile from the charge nurse."

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover, Part XIV: The Crossover Awakens!), by Sureia (COMPLETE!): "'Okay guys, I know there's been a lot of rumours goin' around. A lot of confusion. Wonderin' if you guys have any questions for me?'"

The Grease is Optional


Billy, Bobby, and Benjy have the right idea for National Watermelon Day, although I'm not sure the vaseline is strictly necessary. To each his own, I guess. The rest of us can probably settle for eating ours, though.

Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Write Where It Hurts," which first aired on this day in 1998. You'd think watching a character struggle with writer's block would be boring, but all of the random fantasy sequences and funny references made that one a fan favorite.

Two Mentions in the Media? That Makes it Multimedia!


Daria's reading up on herself because fifteen years ago today, Daria was mentioned twice as part of MTV's twentieth anniversary. That makes MTV 35 now, which is much too old for their primary demographic. Tsk, tsk.

Fanfic Update!
  • The Bench, by dmsfanman (COMPLETE!): "Daria went inside and closed the door. When she turned around Quinn was standing right in front of her. 'Eeep,' Daria said. She thought, 'That was certainly a profound statement.'"

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 24): "It seemed that the school insisted on forcing career aptitude tests on the entire student population on an annual basis. Even the kids that had jobs – or even only kind of had jobs – had to fill out the forms."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: No Country For Unpleasant Old Men, by Meester_Lee (part 1): "It was time to see the girl, thought Arcturus Black. He'd buried more old friends in the last couple of years, and even factoring in his admittedly-weak powers of divination, he wasn't that sure as to just how long his remaining health and vigor would last."

  • Great Professor Dario Ch.2, by ST91 (part 1): "'Please, Ms. Lane, come this way.' said Helen before climbing the stairs. 'Yes Mrs. Morgendorffer. By the way you can call me Penny.'"

  • The Many Doctors - Chapter 35, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "The TARDIS materialised. The Doctor, Rose and Felica stepped out. Rose turned around. 'Adam? Out you come.'"

  • The Mighty Fall (Pasta's Never-ending Ideas Thread!), by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "The auditorium was packed, everyone from freshmen to seniors seated inside, and yet one could've heard a pin drop. The air was heavy, the mood tense, and Jane Lane suspected it would've been better suited for a funeral."

  • Required Secondary Abilities, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'Well, this makes it official,' Daria Morgendorffer quipped, looking down from the enclosed balcony to what – to her eyes – reminded her of a massive football field, but with no goal posts and the yard markers labeled by multiples of five instead of ten, and going up to 150."

  • The start of something.... strange (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: 600 Years Afterward), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "It was the first day of senior year, the big final year, one more round of torture before they graduated and either went to college or headed off into 'the real world'. Jane still wasn't sure what that meant."

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover, Part XIV: The Crossover Awakens!), by Wraith (COMPLETE!): "Quinn, who was tight as a drum, burst out laughing and shouted: 'Here come the Franzosen to the rescue: Ourrah pobieda!'"

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."

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....

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."

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!

  • 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."

"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."

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."

Jake Has Shown Forty-One Years of Fortitude and Counting!

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."

  • 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."

  • Shadows of a Timeless Song, by Dennis (part 13): "They chatted amiably for a few more minutes until voices in the hall told them Ron and Hermione had returned. 'What next?' Daria asked, before Hermione could speak."

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."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 18): "'Those who do not volunteer must voluntarily buy a ticket, or voluntarily face suspension,' Ms Li informed them. 'That's probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard,' Daria said quietly to Jane."

  • 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."

There's Something Fishy Going On Here


Although today is International Sushi Day, Jake strongly suggests that you avoid Tokyo Toby's unless you want a side order of parasites. Fortunately, this is also Go Fishing Day, so you can just go out and catch your own!

Speaking of Tokyo Toby's, this also happens to be the fifteenth anniversary of the episode "My Night at Daria's," which features the yet-to-be shut down sushi restaurant. Oh, and there's also some sideplot about Daria and Tom deciding whether or not to have sex.

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. Today was show day and she felt ready, as did members of the chorus and the schoolmates who were going to be doing the holiday play." (Part 7b)

  • 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."

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."

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."

"...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"
