That New Kid

Eleven years ago, Ted DeWitt-Clinton appeared as Daria's potential new, first-ever boyfriend in "The New Kid." The episode stirred up a storm of controversy at the time, as not many people wanted her to hook up with him. They need not have worried. I still think Ted was gay.

Robert, however, was Daria's first real date. Not likely he'd show up on her date planner in the future, either.

Ted and Robert, however, came to be great friends. Maybe we'll see a Ted/Robert 'shipper one of these days. It could happen.

Moar l8r, stay tooned.

L8R: There's more fanfiction, but it will have to wait, got to go out for a while.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: A well-known fan artist has generously allowed DFB2 to premiere a brand-new artwork this coming week. You MUST stay tuned for more. It is AWESOME.

Jazz.com has a note that there is a new jazz singer in the D.C. area who, if I understand the blog post correctly, looks like Daria. Here's a pic of her with The Bad Plus, the jazz group she's with. Hmmm, I dunno, we have people in the fandom who look more like Daria than she does [COUGHKristenCOUGH], but I understand the resemblance.

Y'know, I've actually got a screencap from a Beavis and Butthead episode that supposedly shows Daria with a "boyfriend," or at least a date——apparently, it was from a "It's a Wonderful Life" type Christmas episode with B&B seeing the effect on the world if they'd never lived (which was mostly positive, unsurprisingly).

I don't know for certain, though, as I've never seen the whole episode myself. I can dig up the screencap if need be, though.

Here is the picture, but the incident with the previously unseen boyfriend took place in an alternate universe in which B&B weren't around to bother Daria.

Well, yeah, sort of. I mean, if you look at a picture of her without your glasses on and you kinda squint, you know, and it's kinda dark in the room, yeah, she does.

Technically I look more like Future!Daria from "Write Where It Hurts," but the squinting and stuff is good, too. :)
