Boxing Brittany

Just 222 short years ago today, England thought it had solved its crime problem by successfully sending every convict that could be found to the opposite end of the globe, where Botany Bay was established. Strangely, this did not solve England's crime problem. Nonetheless, we honor this event as the creation of Daria's Australian fandom.'Strewth! (The picture at left is not meant to imply that any party has ever engaged in "genetic engineering" with the kangaroos.)

Sixteen years ago, the Cando Event occurred in Spain. A meteor? A UFO? Rich fodder for Daria fanfic? You decide.

  • The Beautiful Princess and the Painter, by Vlora (COMPLETE!): "O-Oh my," Mr. O'Neill mumbled over his breath, his hands clasped on top of the desk. ‘I—called you here today to discuss a little, er, issue with Quinn’s grades." [Now with more WIN!] (
  • Daria: Hunter 5—Strictly Business, by Jim North (Parts 1 and 2): "Are you saying that werewolves can't wear suits? Do you have something against werewolves? Are you, perhaps, a werewolf racist?"
  • Daria in: Cyborg! by Ranger Thorne (Part 1): "So, you okay with this whole ‘not-really-Human-anymore’ thing?" "Actually, it’s kind of cool."
  • Daria Is Raven's Apprentice, by Project Pegasus et al. (continued): "Sorry," said Daria, "I only read yaoi lemons."
  • DeWitt-Clinton Maiden, by Wraith (Part 1): There was a pause on the other end of the line. This usually happened when Daria answered a call meant for Quinn, but this time seemed odd. For a moment she thought the line had gone dead. Instead of the usual background noise that went with a surprised pause, there was absolutely no sound at all. Then whoever it was on the other end of the line spoke up. (Daria/Rozen Maiden)
  • The Dream of the White Darkness, by jtranser (continued): "In your pre-dream screening session, you stated that you felt your thoughts were no longer your own. After three dream sessions, I must tell you now. You are correct."
  • Dye, Dye My Darling..., by MidnightStorm (COMPLETE!): [Songfic!]
  • Falling into College 72: Valley of Love and Delight, by RLobinske (Part 3): "It's going to be really embarrassing tomorrow if we oversleep and I miss graduation."
  • Finn Morgendorffer 26: The Mark of Failure, by HolyGrail2007 (COMPLETE!): “Let me guess,” Finn started. “I don’t have time for this crap. What the hell did you do to Jane?” Daria demanded. “Daria, I haven’t seen Jane for days. She’s been out with Tom.” “She’s joining the cheerleading squad.”
  • Finn Morgendorffer 27: Helen and The Boys, by HolyGrail2007 (Parts 1 and 2): Finn had already settled on inviting Tom over for the weekend. It was only fair, considering it would not be right to invite just one of his buddies without the other. That might cause some thoughts of favoritism, and Finn did not do that. Joey, Jeffy, and Jamie were equally important friends. While Finn trusted Joey more in a fight, Jamie on the football field, and Jeffy pretty much the rest of the time, each of them were awesome, fantastic friends and they were all important to him. Tom, to Finn’s surprise, was actually eager to hear about it.
  • The Heather/Damsel Chronicles 12: Yule Be Sorry, by NightGoblyn (Parts 1 and 2): Heather rolled her eyes. “Go read a romance novel, Dam.” “I don't need to, I actually date in real life,” Damsel said archly. “I guess it helps that the boys aren't afraid of me.” Heather whirled around and opened her mouth, and then Cherry held her hands up and said, “Whoa, whoa, whoa.” Both sisters turned to look at her and she continued, “I didn't fly all the way across the country to listen to you two bitch at each other. Can we have a truce for the holiday? You know: peace on Earth, goodwill towards women, all that stuff?”
  • Legion of Lawndale Heroes Mini: Girl Fight Tonight, by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): The good think about trying to beat up Brittany Taylor was Sandi knew that Brittany had at least a black belt. Brittany was used to getting knocked about.
  • Moment of Thought, by Malakite (COMPLETE!): "I know what kind of upbringing she's had. What's your excuse?" Ms. Morris asked. Daria reflected for a fraction of a second...
  • Regifted 2: I Put Away Joyless Things, by Ajar (Part 2): “Private Daria Morgendorffer, 8675309.” “The Geneva Convention doesn't apply to high school,” Graham said. “That's what makes it so fun.”
  • Tales of the Ringbearers: A Very Bad Move, by Doggieboy (Part 1): Even in death, the man’s eyes remained open and stared at the wall behind the desk. Clad only in a pair of white crew socks, he laid on his left side and his left arm clung to the desktop. Smoke rose from his face and chest areas, and blood decorated both his body and the cream-colored carpet around his body.
  • Trapped, by Jim North (Parts 1 and more): Daria Morgendorffer was sitting in a chair. The chair, she would have assumed, should have been in a room. Or somewhere outside. Or at least somewhere. As it was, the chair—and, subsequently, Daria herself—was located precisely nowhere.
  • Uh-Oh, Slash Comes To Town, by Ajar (continued): “Hey, Daria,” said Jane as the two met up at the Mystik Spiral gig. “I'd like like you to meet Alison, my, uh... It's kind of complicated.” (SFMB)
  • Unnamed story (More Crossovers Not Yet Crossed Over), by Trscroggs (Part 1): “So let me get this straight,” Daria said to the bruiser of a fed. “One of your spies went off the reservation and stole one of your most classified pieces of software. Before being caught, he tried to mail it to someone, but miss-typed the address and sent it to me instead.” “Correct.”

Actually, Lsauchelli (I think I misspelled that) did the first Julia Carlyle portrait. It's up on her Wiki entry. BTW - could you put the new one up there? Thanks!
