Happy Pi Day!

Today, March 14th (a.k.a. 3/14) is Pi Day. On this day, we commemorate the brainiest Quinn in fanfic, the math wizard created by Kara Wild for the Driven Wild Universe. This is the Quinn who said, in "Breaking the Mold": "Pi is cute. If pi were on the Endangered Species list, I'd be, like, really upset."

How many Daria fanfics involve math, other than DWU? I will investigate.

Meanwhile, Hershey-chan continues a most excellent series of shipper pics with a real shocker. That totally rules. Love it.

More soon after I see what math-related fanfic there is (excluding stories where people say, "You do the math," which a lot of stories do).

LATE ADD: Hmmm, not coming up with much. John Lane and Daria argue over John's math grades in Richard Lobinske's "Echoes of a Relationship" (great story, that one), and Daria tutors Jane and Stacy in math in "The Law of Inclusion and Exclusion," by William Gasarch (also good story).

Back later. The Evil Quinn from Thomas's most excellent tale, "It's a Wonderful Life, Not," is also a genius, but she's, um, evil. She likes calculus, though. And murder, true, but anyone who likes calculus isn't all bad.

Back later.
