Now, this means that Daria, at age 15 and in ninth grade, not only knows how to perform auto maintenance by herself, but also knows enough about sex and human relationships to make the title quote and know exactly what she's talking about. Hell of a kid, that Daria. This incident is repeated in a different way in a recent fanfic ("It Slipped Through My Hands, Like a Shadow, Like a Dream").
Today also happens to be the starting day of a very peculiar and amusing crackfic, Bacner's "Diary of a Lawndale Student," from 2002. It is well worth a look. I love it.
N00Z: The original Jane Lane, Anne D. Bernstein, has begun blogging with some of her art and photos again. This pretty well answers the question of what would Jane be doing right now.
Does anyone know of any other active blogs about Daria?
While reading through a post on PPMB, I came across this fan term: FanDumb. Do you think this blog is in any danger of this? I have nothing else to worry about and so thought I might worry about something new for a change. Thank you for your cooperation.
- Another Normal Day in Lawndale, by JPAGC (Part 1): As she made her way to the bathroom, she could hear the usual sounds in the house. Her mother was downstairs, already busy with breakfast for the family. She could hear the water running, so her father should be in the shower in her parent's bathroom, preparing for another busy day. No sound emerged from her sister's room, which was just as well.
- Falling Into College 70: Is It The Future, Yet? by Richard Lobinske (Part 2): Hearing the voices, Michael came in from the library, "Hi, Amy. What brings you here?" "Prurient curiosity," she said. "But not about our trip," Daria said. "Come on, give. You're here alone."
- Pigskin Caduceus, by HolyGrail2007 (COMPLETE!): Sentinel University was a pretty fantastic place when I took my trip to see it. Although the skeletal trees didn’t make it look appealing, the fresh snow on the ground with the mountains in the background actually made it look like a nice winter paradise. (FF.net)
- Stacy Rowe, Seeker (Part III), by jtranser (continued): "Jane, I don't think I'll ever get used to all the variations of alternate universes. It's one thing to talk about them as abstract possibilities over breakfast and quite another to actually experience them.' 'You just have to hang on for the ride, Daria. As long as you have a firm grip on what's in your universe, you can glide through whatever comes your way." [Continued here with devious future plans afoot!]
