Something to read in your soggy cardboard box

Google says today is its 10th birthday. Happy Birthday, and thank you for helping me find all the Daria links at left.

NEW: Interested in what the Ringbearers actually look like? Check out this PPMB thread.

Quick fanfic wrap-up:
  • Ill Will, by Medea42 (COMPLETE!): Monique sat in the coffee shop, looking ghostly. Trent realized he hadn’t seen her in full daylight since she’d moved back to Lawndale. [Nice alternate view of "Ill."--TAG]

  • Dealing with the Real World, by magnuskrauss (Parts 1, 2, and 3): "Have you been taking your meds?" Daria asked. Amy smiled and held up three fingers. "That's five, right?" [A potentially wicked, evil tale. Moar plz.—TAG]
  • Farmyard Funnies, Part 4, by Deref (continued): This is wrong, bad wrong, in so many ways. Thank God it has nothing to do with me.
  • Mobius Strip, by legendeld (Part 4): Quinn summed a door and stepped through, then tapped Jane gently on the shoulder and spoke. “It’s not a joke."
  • One More Try, by legendeld (COMPLETE!): Someone finds the direct way to Quinn's heart. It's through her stomach.
  • Origins of the Ringbearers: Michael, by Brother Grimace (Part 1): The waitress turned back, smiling as the man looked up at her with those brown eyes that she found sad and fascinating. “They call me Michael.”
  • Sometimes It Rains, by legendeld (COMPLETE!): “They just want to check me for horns or splash holy water on me.”
  • Tales of the Ringbearers: Birthright, by legendeld (COMPLETE!): The memory flashed through her mind, the decayed faces and hands reaching for her. She slipped found herself falling upward.
  • Tales of the Ringbearers: Journey's Debt, by legendeld (Parts 8 and 9): "We don't have to beat them, we just have to keep them here," Lee said, looking at the floating armada that was growing closer and closer.
  • Tales of the Ringbearers: Neighborhood Improvement, by Doggieboy (COMPLETE!): “Mayor, with the drastic drop in crime in the Duncan neighborhood, will you press for more police layoffs in Rockport?”

Plus. . . .
  • Iron Chef: My Secret Musical Talent, from WacoKid, has produced great ficlets from paisleygal and Disco316.
