Whoa! Forgot to Post Last Night!

Well, better late than never.

Richard Lobinske has updated the 2010 Daria FanArt listing with many good things on which to feast your eyes.

Outpost Daria has a February update!

Eleven years ago, TV Guide had mention of a then-upcoming episode of Daria for the third season: "Daria!" the fourth-wall-breaking musical.

Richard Lobinske is building a model of a spacecraft from a Daria fanfic. Can you guess which story?
  • The Prodigal Daughter, by a440 (Part 5): "I WAS a head cheerleader once," said Brittany, "and I happen to be more than you think, Adair—and it's not just my bimboisms."
  • The Brittrix, by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): The noise continued to beep. Like a minesweeper, DeMartino swept the halls, listening carefully. He finally found his target. "BRITTANY!" "Eap!" The cheerleader almost jumped out of her seat.
  • collar, by Jim North (continued): The Diamond Cage, known to most of its patrons simply as the Cage, was a small downtown club that catered to the leash and leather set and had long been a favorite haunt of Sandi and Stacy's. The city didn't hold a very large population of kinks compared to others like New York or Los Angeles, but there was still a decent crowd there when the two women rolled up in Sandi's BMW. (SFMB)
  • NEW! Daria: Hunter—Strictly Business, by Jim North (continued): Once they had all their gear stowed away, they activated the second stage of their disguises. The color of their coveralls shifted from a light grey to a darker blue as the logos and IDs on the chests changed to those of janitors employed by Landon Enterprises. Daria's hair changed from red to black and Jane's went from brunette to blonde as the nanobots that had been strewn throughout altered their appearance. [More added!]
  • Daria the Reyvateil, by Trscroggs (Part 1): “Kiddo, have you seen the lighter fluid?” Jake asked.” I could have sworn I bought a great big can of it when I got the charcoal.” “I don’t think so.” Daria said while getting up. She gave the barely visible can a swift kick to knock it further under the deck. “Maybe you’re thinking about that last time you grilled in Highland, the one where the first grill melted?” (Daria/Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia)
  • NEW! The Dream of the White Darkness, by jtranser (continued): "In addition to their existence as an unconscious performing art, dreams exist outside sense data and are distinct from their properties and those that dream them. A. T. Srinivasan says it is more correct to say that dreams are the medium of all change, and that a dream is the underlying unifying force of the Universe subsuming all other forces. In short, a Dreamer is necessary to bring the Universe into being."
  • Falling into College 72: Valley of Love and Delight, by RLobinske (Part 7): Jane felt a little strange leading her friends through the front door and to the office. At the front desk, she said, "I'm Jane Lane. I have an appointment with Principal Defoe."
  • Fight Like Hell, by Shull Bitter (continued): Jake Morgendorffer sat at Daria's computer, his legs kicked casually up on the desk and his blue shirt looking somehow more.. pressed and tidy than was customary for him so late in the day. His dark eyes sparkled with amusement. "Hiya, Kiddo! I was just perusing some of your violent revenge fantasies!" He gestured to the open word processor on the monitor.
  • NEW! Finn Morgendorffer 32: It Happened One Summer, by HolyGrail2007 (COMPLETE!): “I’m looking forward to the art colony. Two months doing nothing but living my dream.” “Crammed into a wooden cabin with people who have poor hygiene. Aren’t these camps just, like, sex ed?” “Jealous, Finn?” Jane teased, and Finn found himself uncomfortable. This was that flirting that drove Tom to Daria. The body language, the suggestive words. All of it was there. And Finn realized he had not spoken to Jane about the breakup. But she did ask him about Tom. What did that mean?
  • The First Law of Identity, by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "So Jane, what did you do last night?" Daria asked. "Oh nothing. I just cleaned my paintbrush, if you know what I mean."
  • General Semantics, Private Angst, by Gwrtheyrn (Part 11): "Of course you'll be captured," said the woman, calmly. "We have no police on Mars, and no ordinary crime, but the cases requiring detective work are always solved with great speed. You will be interested in meeting a null-A detective, but you will be shocked at how rapidly you are caught."
  • NEW! It's All About the Intention, by Psychotol (continued): “It’s just a general’s mast, how bad could it be?” [New addition just added!]
  • M4: Deodora, by Silver (COMPLETE!): "Why are we doing this again?" Sandi Griffin griped for the ninth time in as many minutes. "Because it's fun?" Stacy Rowe asked her. "I'm serious! This armor is hideous!" Sandi groused.
  • Playing Taboo at the Morgendorffers, by Greystar (COMPLETE!): "Okay, this is something you do on your knees?"
  • A Reaper in the Wind, by RLobinske (Part 9): Tom was the first to spot the reaper. As in the UAV camera recording, it was wearing a burkha to hide its appearance. However, the fact that it was ordering marines around dispelled any misconception that it might be anything or anyone else.
  • Regifted 2: I Put Away Joyless Things, by Ajar (Part 4): “So, what do you think?” Jane asked. Here goes nothing, Ryan thought as he puzzled over the piece. It was quite different from what art of hers he'd seen before. More De Stijl and not so much de Kooning. Best to praise her for trying something. “It's great,” said Ryan. “You're not limiting yourself to one style. You can explore form and shape outside of your normal paradigm of symbolism and shock.” “If I wanted pretentious fawning praise, I would have bribed The New Yorker.”
  • A Ticket to Ride, by Doggieboy (Part 5): “You are a handful, Ted.”
  • Unnamed story (Scenes no Daria fanfic should have: Ouch Time), by DigiSim (COMPLETE!): One sunny afternoon Sandi Griffin strolled downstairs to watch Fashion Vision, diet soda in one hand and Waif in the other. But what she saw when she arrived in the living room stopped her in her tracks...
  • Unnamed story (Scenes no Daria fanfic should have: Ouch Time), by Greystar (COMPLETE!): WTF?!
