Don't Forget Who?

Some authorities claim today is Forget Me Not Day, which I figure is a greeting-card-company conspiracy to make us buy more cards. This is the kid at Holiday Island High that no one remembers.

In honor of Forget Me Not Day, we present the MTV alter ego of Quinn Morgendorffer at right, posing as . . . let's see if you can guess. I'm pretty sure I know who she's supposed to be. (Old people will have an advantage here.) If anyone can match my guess at who Quinn is supposed to be, U w1N teh Internets!!! Bonus points if you provide a picture link proving you correct.

Today is also the birthday of the United States Marine Corps. Perhaps we should each buy a greeting card for someone in the USMC or something. It's a nice gesture.
  • Camp Pu, by Smileyfax (Part 1): Young Daria is having a miserable time at Camp Grizzly, until one morning when everything gets much, much worse.

  • Apocalyptic Daria: Scarlett's Tale, by Doggieboy (Part 2): Lawndale’s air raid siren blared into life. It was an old relic from the Cold war, but it apparently still worked, it’s lonely wail a redundant, yet terrifying, signal of danger.
  • Bet, by Legendeld (Part 3): Quinn had to physically drag Daria out of the house. “C’mon, you’re a big girl. I think you can handle some shopping.”
  • Fundamental Daria: God Willing, by Disco316 (COMPLETE!): I love you, Trent. Thanks for being there for me all these years. God Willing, I’ll tell you that in person tonight.
  • Fundamental Daria: I Made My Excuses and Left, by Disco316 (COMPLETE!): Daria gets one too many shocks to handle. The reader gets some big shocks, too.
  • Invading, by Lorenzo Sauchelli (Part 2): "What's the state of Quinn Morgendorffer and her friends, Dr. Storm?" "They are not mutants. They're unlike anything we've ever seen, actually."
  • John Lane 37: Chrysalis, by Richard Lobinske (Part 4): "Way to go, dude! If you can get into the pants of an icebox like Daria, you rock." This guy, by rights, should be dead now.
  • Order and Chaos, by Legendeld (Part 8): “So this Sith Master is showing far more interest in your Padawan than is normal. Is the lightsaber functional?”
  • Project: FEISTI, by SoCalledGoodeGuy (Part 3): The suit’s left hand formed what looked like the ‘Spider-Man’ gesture, middle two fingers manipulating a control on the inside of the suit’s wrist. A collar restraint system came down on Mack’s shoulders, followed by the suit’s helmet section swinging down over Mack’s helmeted head. A sharp hiss sounded. “Suit sealed.”
  • Turnabout Confusion Part II: All The King's Horses, by Dennis (continued): Stacy was at ground zero of the power play, and didn't like it.

  • Not So Easy, by MMan (Part 3): When the going gets tough, the tough call Daria.

Moar l8r.

Bette Page?

No, but I must have looked at dozens of Ms. Page's cheesecake shots in discovering who Quinn was pretending to be. The journey was not unpleasant in the least.

Hint: At first, I thought the picture was supposed to be of Quinn imitating Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, or Jane Russell. Then I discovered it wasn't that specific.

The answer will appear tomorrow at 11 a.m., Eastern time.
