What's new at the PPMB? (And a bonus discussion question!)

Okay, last week I updated everyone on the latest fan-fiction posted at the PPMB. I intend to do another update at some point, but for now I'm going to highlight a few recent discussions:

Kara Wild has posted pictures and stories about her trip to Australia.

Speaking of travel, do you live in Europe or can you be there between October 5th and 14th? If so, you have a chance to meet Quiverwing during her trip. Vote in MartinUK's poll!

Hazazel started an interesting discussion about things in Daria episodes that are more silly than realistic.

Charles RB posted cosplay photos from Dragon*Con 2010.

Who do you think is the sexiest woman warrior of all time? Make your case in this thread.

And there are two threads in Deep Thoughts related to Daria and sexuality. Brother Grimace wrote a ficlet parodying how often this kind of topic has been discussed, which leads me to...

...what Daria topics do you think are woefully untouched in fandom? Do you wish the question of whether Daria prefers plain or peanut M & Ms could be settled? Or yearn for a heated argument over Helen's favorite band? What about an epic, ten-page long debate over which Daria characters would be what nail polish color, and why?

Post your ideas in the comments!

Okay, I'll take up the challenge. Question one: does Daria use a stick deodorant or roll-on? Or does she go without? Question two: does Jane Lane think performance art is valid as artistic expression or is it a scam? Question three: Is Ms. Li more like Stalin or Hitler? Is there a difference? Talk amongst yourselves.

O.K., after Daria graduates, she gets a job in the building trades, becomes a roofer and hooks up with a newly released ex=con after they hammer shingles together. When asked about him, she said: "He had me the moment I saw his nail gun,"

(What? Somebody needed to keep this going.)

Today, Sunday, September 19, is International Talk like a Pirate Day!

I personally plan to spend the afternoon with a bottle of rum and some booty...

Is this meant to be "Daria Store [[provided]] by many Internet shopping outlets"

Nothing on-topic to say, except to hope that TAG is doing well.
