This Is Only a Test

To the right is the crowd scene in the Lawndale High gymnasium in "Daria!" Name as many students as you can.

When you get done with that, you might take a look at this blog entry and see what you think of it. It's in a blog called Networked Public Culture: Art and Life in the Age of Social Networking (ahem!) and discusses Fan & Slash Fiction. Daria is not mentioned, but a wide range of other fandoms is noted. Any thoughts on this? Kinda interesting.

(Frodo/Sam slash fic, eww.)

LATE ADD: Alert fan NomadX has pointed out on SFMB that e-Bay has an interesting new t-shirt for sale. See this link right here for more.

We have a winner! Only I forgot to go out and get prizes. Maybe next time!

Several girls I used in "Scarlett" are present. I guess Josh and Jennifer really are dating, or just friends.

If Josh and Jennifer are dating, why was he on the Ferris Wheel with Scarlett in Fair Enough?

Who wouldn't go on the Ferris Wheel with Scarlett?

TAG: thank you!

Re: 'Scarlett' -- no disrespect meant, but I limited myself to canonical info. :)

With a good reason, actually -- 'Scarlett' is an outstanding work, but there are other fanfic works which have used those backrounders, and I neither read the whole corpus of Dariafic nor enjoyed a certain fic which did use a lot of the backgrounders.

Ah, allow me to rephrase and clarify. In the episode Fair Enough Josh is seen walking around with Jennifer. Later that same episode, he is riding the Ferris Wheel with the girl fandom refers to as 'Scarlett.'

So . . . are all three of them just friends? Is he seeing one behind the other's back? Is he a total player and keeping both relationships secret? Or is it an open polyamourous sort of thing? These are burning questions!

I'm telling you, Josh and Jennifer are twins!

OMG! It's one of those menagerie of twah things, whatever twah is!
