Where's Glenn? (#2)

Okay, so there's this bearded guy in a colorful shirt sitting in a dark theater in Is It College Yet? Could this guy be Glenn Eichler? He looks more like him than the previous guy. Wonder if the woman is supposed to be his wife (Michele Tomasik, editor for The Daria Diaries).

Some changes have been made to the main page of Backgrounders, defining which characters on Daria were major ones and which were minor, for the purposes of that website. I'd like to hear from you about that. Are there "major" characters you think are really minor ones, or vice versa?

More importantly, I'd like to hear from fanfic writers who have found the Backgrounders site to be of use to them in creating their stories. Daria is rich with unexplored territory, even seven years since the last original episode or movie appeared.

Ever wonder if Pizza King was a real place? Wonder no more.

Dennis, Richard Lobinske, Brother Grimace, and Disco316 have added a lot recently to DariaWiki. Latest page added is about Dominator.

  • Antiestablishmentarian Hikers, by Lawndale Lurker (continued): “Ohnoohcrapohdamn, we're doomed! Now we're all gonna die for sure! Idawannadieavirginnn! Waaaah!!"
  • The Other Side of Time: Unfinished Business, by The Sidhe (continued): Tom Sloane got out of the police car and looked at the ruined shell of his childhood home. He could see the remains of the front door, marked off with police crime scene tape. Beside him stood a couple of detectives from the Lawndale police.
  • Snuffed Animals, by Disco316 (Parts 18 and 19): By the time Daria had gotten to within a block of her home, she had walked off most of her frustration. She had even resolved to apologize for acting childish when she went over to Jane’s house the next morning. Maybe Jane would admit she was being childish too. However, her plans went out the window the moment she saw the car parked outside her house. [Note: part 19 is angst to the awesome power. Good show!]
