Back Again As Usual

Sorry I missed yesterday. I got back into fanfic writing and sort of let everything else drop. Let's see if I can juggle things a little better this time.

Today is the day, years and years ago, when the TV show McCloud premiered. This is important because Daria dreamed that she was McCloud in the episode, "Murder, She Snored." Yeah, that was pretty trivial, but it's my blog.

Yesterday was the 11th anniversary of the airing of the Daria Day Marathon on MTV. Good times. It was also the day (yesterday was) when the second season of Daria debuted, according to this article. That means yesterday, which I missed, was the 11th anniversary of "Arts 'N Crass." Dang. Well, happy birthday to that episode.

Getting back to today again, this is the 10th anniversary of the musical "Daria!" which has become everyone's third season favorite. Not. Well, it's still great fun finding ways to explain that episode in fanfiction. Also still think that Trike Girl is the cause of all the trouble.

This is about the time of year when "Daria's Tears" took place. Might want to check that one out.

WacoKid created a great new Iron Chef: Late for Valentines Day, or Confused Cupid. This should get some good responses.

Another teaser is out from Brother Grimace for the Legion of Lawndale Heroes series. This one is for Chapter 13.5. Enjoy.

The Urban Dictionary has a definition for "Daria." Interesting.

And.... it's time to get into fanfiction, which will take a while to get together. We'll start slowly.

  • Data Dump, by CINCGREEN (COMPLETE!)): Jane looked at Daria. “Hi, kiddo. Long time no see.” She then absorbed the sight of Daria’s expansive house. “How has life been treating you?”

PPMB
  • Daylight: Visiting Camp Grizzly, by Richard Lobinske (COMPLETE!): Small streams of smoke rose above the trees ahead as a man carefully made his way long the unpaved road. He carried a bow in one hand and had a modest sized wild pig, already field-dressed, slung over the other shoulder. (A sequel to "Daylight: Recruitment Day.")
  • LATIFA: In the King's Navy, by SoCalledGoodeGuy (Part 3): “So where’s this **** on a shingle?” asked Jane.
  • Two Halves, by Dark Kuno (continued): “What were you thinking?!” Quinn asked angrily of the three boys standing before her in the kitchen.

But seriously... TAG, what are you doing not linking your own work. Screw the modesty thing, it would be criminal to not mention The Other.

DFB2 isn't here to promote me. It's here for the fandom, all six of us plus al the FBI agents pretending to be more fans.

Oh, dang, forgot to mention that Outpost Daria has updated. I'll post something about it when I get home.
