Good Friends, Good Times

NightGoblyn has come up with a real challenge: Iron Chef: Old School. "Write a short fic (or longer, for extra credit) in script format that ends with Daria and Trent becoming a couple." Whoa, forward to the past!

Speaking of which, Kara Wild and others are discussing scriptfics, pro and con, on PPMB.

  • Lambda, by SigDiff (Part 22): Jane woke up to a cold breeze on her face, instantly reminding her where she was. Guess we fell asleep on the roof. Her vision saw the world slowly rising and falling several inches as her head rested on Watts' chest. “I hope you used protection,” she heard Daria's voice say from behind her.
  • Turnabout Confusion Part II: All The King's Horses, by Dennis (COMPLETE!): She waited until Sandi was fully engaged in primping before emerging from the stall. "We need to talk," she said softly, as Sandi's expression stiffened in the mirror.
  • Wristcutters: A Daria Story, by Charliefox2012 (Part 1): The ground was hard, and hot. The air was dry, and the sun was bright. Daria knew that she was outside, and that it was hot. She didn’t know how long she had been here or how she got there. She didn’t open her eyes yet, because she knew that she wasn’t in Lawndale, and a part of her was afraid to find out where she was. She heard the gravel crunching under someone’s shoes as they walked over to her.
  • Am I Being Served? by Ajar (Part 1): "Ah yes, you must be the new junior for the ladies' counter. I commend you for being punctual, which is more than I can say for some of our other junior staff. Sign in for 8:43."
  • Complications, by Legendeld (Part 9): Daria Morgendorffer shook her head repeatedly as her so called best friend tried to discuss one of the few topics she considered taboo. They were inside Jane’s bedroom both standing as neither had a chance to sit before Jane started venting. “C’mon Daria. It was like she was deliberately picking a fight with me and then she started kissing me. Like I would feel like making out after fighting.”
  • Expecting Trouble, by Legendeld (Parts 4 and 5): “Mr. O’Neil isn’t feeling well so I’ll be finishing up this class. Consider it a study hall.” Ms. Li stepped forward to Daria’s desk and lowered her voice. “And in the future, Miss Morgendorffer, if you feel a need to emasculate one of my teachers, do it on a Friday.”
  • Hell on Wheels, by Roxanne M (Part 6): "Son, your mother and I were discussing this. We like Daria and don’t get us wrong; are you sure she is the girl for you? A proper young lady would not be crawling around bars in the worse part of town, let alone getting shot."
  • Kappa Daria, by Patrick Moore, a.k.a. Peapotmaster, Shadow Pumpkinhead (Part 1): (Daria/Kappa Mikey) It was Bad Movie Night at Daria’s house, with Daria Morgendorffer and Jane Lane watching Dragonball Evolution on a bootlegged DVD. The two teenage girls looked at each other and groaned at the TV screen. “Damn bad live action movies based on popular cartoon shows,” said Jane. (FF.net)
  • Lawndale's Finest: The Dark Knight (Chapter 3, Part 2): Three blocks over Batgirl dropped off the top of a building into a dimly lit alley, flipping her cloak out about two-thirds of the way down to catch the air and slow to a manageable speed before hitting the concrete in a crouch. She stood and strode to the bike hidden in the shadows, tapping the spot on the back of her gauntlet that unlocked all the electronics on the vehicle. She kick-started the bike with a roar of the engine, and sped out of the alley towards the East Side. [Moar here.]
  • Legion of Lawndale Heroes: Tokusatsu Team Up! by Lorenzo Sauchelli (Part 7): Urza rolled her eyes at the display of wasted power and tried to teleport away, not really feeling like hurting the kids over something that would go her way by the end. But when she tried to slide away, something prevented her from doing so. She leveled a glare at the Blue Ranger. “Anti-apparition wards? I know more than a few ways to travel, you know.”
  • On the Clock, by Legendeld (Part 5): Time flies when you’re having fun, or knocking heads across the entire Eastern seaboard. I didn’t realize just how many rogue heroes or villains there were out there but if I could go back in time I’d of bought stock in whatever company makes the cheap capes everyone and their brother keeps wearing.
  • Tales of the Ringbearers: Temporary Duty, by Richard Lobinske (Part 3): "Now that you've had your chunk of uncooked cow, will you humor me for a second?" Daria said, holding up a thermometer. John put his empty plate in the dishwasher and said, "Fine." He took the thermometer from Daria and stuck it in his mouth and patiently waiting a minute. He then pulled it out and said, "Are you happy now." Daria's face lost color as she looked at the device. "No, I'm not."
  • Things Fall Apart, by Doggieboy (Part 10): Butt-Head’s death depressed Beavis more than Daria or any of the high school faculty would have realized. The night that it happened, he cried for more than an hour. Helen and Jake managed to get him to lay down. She tucked him in on his bedroll and the boy cried himself to sleep.
