Arch-Librarian Supremo Kristen Bealer is coming to your house tonight to abuse you until you return all your overdue library books. She will also remind you that this is Banned Books Week, and you had better turn in a five-page report by Friday, or else. I am not making this up, I swear.
Um, more later. Or something. But first, some updates.
The latest DariaWiki pages are Diaryfic and Sparky. Remember that.
- Write Me In! by respitechristopher (COMPLETE!): “Buying a pretty girl a drink? Never seemed like a waste before. What’s your name, hon?” “Danica. Danica Morningtown. And thanks for the beer. What’s your name?” “You can call me Melody.” [You won't believe this one.—TAG] *
- Data Dump, by CINCGREEN (Part 7): Daria woke up. She had a horrible dream. She was watching a horror movie. It was as if one of her short stories had come to life. [Another shock-filled ride.—TAG] *
- Dealing with the Real World, by magnuskrauss (continued): "Extra large root beers? Are we starting on our world domination plans today, Daria?"
- Origins of the Ringbearers: Let Vengeance Ring, by Richard Lobinske (Part 2): "Reports of the catastrophe in China's Guangdong province are still confused, but weather satellite imagery has confirmed that an area approximately six miles in diameter fell into complete darkness."
- Stacy Rowe, Seeker (Part II), by jtranser (continued): "Just what is it with you zombies? And that brain-eating thing! Ewwwwww!!"
- Tales of the Ringbearers: Journey's Debt, by legendeld (COMPLETE!): Archangel sat in his makeshift office inside the Dyson’s sphere going over the various reports from DELPHI and the Agency. The loss of life from this single battle was perhaps the greatest for each of the organizations in their respective histories.
