New Fanfic!

Chapter 2: The Attack of MonsterX (Crossovers Still Crossing Over), by OverlordMikey: "Jane ran down the street with a strange girl with flowing blonde in a red leotard and a white frilly cloak. Her head was topped with a big red bow. On her back was a pair of red bat wings and she held a staff tight in her hands."

Daria/Dorian Ch.9 - Failure Is A Good Thing, by LadieT (part 1): "Amy turned to face Jane, who was curled up with her arms wrapped around her knees. Sitting down next to the younger girl, Amy placed her hands gently on Jane's shoulder. Jane leaned against Amy and began to calm down. Amy decided to break the silence."

The fiercest battles lie within, by VPrad (part 12): "From the very moment she arrived to that artists’ colony she knew she wouldn’t fit in there either. She had gone from being surrounded by idiots obsessed with sports and appearance to being surrounded by pretentious and pompous idiots who were even more irritating. And this time Daria wasn’t there to back her up."

Go on Living, by Jim North (parts 1 and 2): "After snapping on a pair of sterile gloves and pulling the filter up over my mouth and nose, I check for a pulse in a few different areas, getting no response. Shining a light into the eyes gets the same, as does a quick breath check. Along with the more obvious signs, this is more than enough for me to declare my first stiff of the day deceased as the proverbial doornail." (Part 2)

God Save The Esteem Ep8: Eff Christmas, by Charles RB (part 1): "'SATAN! We’re worshipping SATAN! Because Satan has the things that we adore! SATAN! We’re worshipping SATAN! Because Satan keeps us stocked with drugs and whores!'"

Jane Morgendorffer, by LadieT (part 13): "'Santa came Jane! Santa came!' Quinn began shaking Daria until she was greeted by two auburn eyes struggling to open. 'Come on, Daria! Santa came!'"

Lawndale and Sandi Griffin’s Genie, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 3): "'Events are going to get out of control, regardless of what you do, Sandi. That is what always happens,' Jean said."

Me vs Maradona vs Elvis, by VPrad (COMPLETE!): "She is there and she probably won’t remember anything about this night. He knows that what he’s about to do is wrong, but that won’t stop it from happening."

Road Trip, by Chris Tucker (part 3 - 5): "The SUV now packed with Jane's belongings, the trip to New England could begin. 'Um, Dad?' 'Yes?' 'You're going the wrong way.'" (Part 4) (Part 5)

Tom's Overkill, by ticknart (COMPLETE!): "She moved, rubbed her cheek into the pillow. Some hair fell down in front of her face. He reached out to brush it back. Before his fingers touched her silky, auburn hair, she wasn't there anymore."

Two Body Problem, by RLobinske (part 4): "'I can't believe it,' he said when he saw a new job announcement. 'A full tenure-track position outside New Orleans. I can't wait to introduce Amy to some real Cajun cooking down in the Quarter. I can't believe it. It's perfect.'"

The Vision of the Burning Cities, by jtranser: "'And so, with an artist's touch to flesh its armature of madness, a furtive vision stepped out of a brown grimy cigarette smoked beer hall fog. In time, it morphed into an intricately woven reality of pure destruction that ended with people turning into shadows of burning light.'"

Y-Me?, by HolyGrail2007 (part 10): "'I have depth! I deep myself!' Quinn replied, only understanding after the fact that such a thing made no sense."

"I deep myself" is my favorite new phrase from a fanfic. It sounds like it should make sense but just doesn't.
