Queen Kong

As today has been designated Monkey Day in support of our less fortunate cousins in the animal kingdom (apes and monkeys alike), Brittany (as King Kong) will be our mascot. Kind of appropriate given yesterday's topic, eh? Thanks to UU and Pinhead for the super-sized illos (click on them and see).

  • NEW! A Haunting in Lawndale, by Kerrykhat (COMPLETE!): "Why would you be worried about us?" Jane asked, shooting Mr. O'Neill a skeptical look. "I would think Mrs. Li would be relieved to have us out of her hair." "You didn't hear about the zombie attack last night?" Mr. O'Neill asked, eyes comically wide with fear. (Daria/Buffy: The Vampire Slayer)
  • The Problem and the Cure, by SinisterDragula (COMPLETE!): Yo. My name is Jane Lane, and I have a problem. There’s only one thing that can cure it. I’ll explain later. This is why I'm in this downward spiral.
  • Seize the Day, Daria! by SinisterDragula (COMPLETE!): Jane, who had one hand on the wheel, turned to smirk at Daria. “What a beautiful night. Only thing missing is a giant tornado and a few cows trapped inside. That would make a perfect Kodak moment.”
  • Daria: Hunter—Mind over Plasma, by Jim North (continued): Artie picked himself up, a piece of the pizza falling from the back of his shirt and splatting on the floor. "I can explain everything," he said, "but we have to leave. He's almost here. He-" His eyes went wild. "He's here." [continued here]
  • Finn Morgendorffer 20: Pet Store Peril, by HolyGrail2007 (COMPLETE!): Finn wandered away from the food court and ended up at the pet store. Hey, there’s an idea, Finn thought. How hard could working with animals be? They were in cages, so it wasn’t like they could run away. Throw `em some food once in a while, tell them a sweet nothing. Hell, it’s just like dating. [continued here]
  • Inner Universe, by Malakite (continued): Trent was humming along with the radio as he pulled into the driveway. He was home earlier than usual today, since Curtis had finally condescended to show up on time for his shift. His joyful mood at being home early enough to greet Janey on her return from school, and the humming that went with, lasted all the way to the mailbox, back into the house, and through about half the mail (most of it junk). Past Due. Notice of Default. He sliced the envelope open and read. 20 days, delinquent payments, penalties, fees... almost $3,000.
  • NEW! Liberation, by thatLONERchick (COMPLETE!): Ms. Li walked into O'Neill's class with a stack of papers in hand. As she was separating one to hand to the teacher, she jerked her hand back with a hiss of pain. "Damn, paper cut."
  • Quinn: The Show, by Ajar (Part 1): "God, Daria! If you want me to try and find you a pity date, just come to me when I'm alone."
  • Regifted, by Ajar (COMPLETE!): “If North Korea can brainwash a captured Marine,” Daria said, “I guess a teenage girl who's vulnerable because she's going through a tough transition can't be blamed for being a bit silly.”
  • Unnamed story (Three-peat! New Ideas Thread Wins Again!), by LSauchelli (Part 1): "You think you've won Kryptonian? You believe me dead? Taste the Omega Scantion!" [Author—"This could be turned into an Iron Chef or competition of sorts to see who can write the most miserable life for Daria."]
