Fanfic update. More soon. I hope!
Hi, all! I'm back from vacation and ready to update some more fanfic. Hopefully there will be more substantial posts on the way, but for now I'm just trying to keep things moving. Enjoy!
The Absolutely True Story Explaining Why Blue M&Ms Are Repulsive to Jane Lane and Should Disturb Everyone (Write-off Challenge 6, Round 2), by Shull Bitter (COMPLETE!): "Jane was still in semi-shock, taking full account of Jesse's tongue mastery—firm and confident enough to move an M&M with accuracy, yet light enough not to put any additional pressure on her eyeball. She leaned towards his face, ready to share a chocolaty kiss."
The Cards You Are Dealt, by Doggieboy (part 1): "Scarlett Hawkins walked down one of Lawndale’s residential sidewalks with a purpose and a determined look on her face. While she appeared to look straight ahead as she moved, her gaze darted back and forth; by now, it was a habit.

Daria/Dorian Ch. 9: Failure Is A Good Thing, by LadieT (COMPLETE!): "The following Monday morning when the projects were due, Jodie walked into the school looking utterly defeated. She had failed at getting the summer off. Mack's face resembled one of a zombie with a hangover. He had spent all day Sunday trying to teach Kevin the three branches of government. Upchuck spent the day mumbling to himself."
Daria/Dorian Ch. 10: Parades Stink!, by LadieT (part 1): "Dorian arrived home after watching "Sick, Sad, World" with Jane to see Quinn and the rest of the Fashion Club waiting in the living room for him. Okay, do I run back out the door or should I face the demons straight on."

The fiercest battles lie within, by VPrad (parts 18 - 20): "An involuntary smile and a slight blush appeared on Daria’s face.

God Save The Esteem ep9: Pop Cult, by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "'The Gupty children are what happen when a Stepford Wife and a Borg love each other very much. They wouldn’t stop singing songs about clean moral values. They associate sugar with Nazism.'" (Part 4)

The woman was wearing a really pretty dress and long gloves and was holding a stick with a cigarette on the end.

Her mother said she would never be that pretty if she stayed so fat, but Mei-Ling was sure she could."

Patience, by NightGoblyn (parts 1 and 2): "Trent's eyes flicked from Church to Whitetown and back. 'I heard banging in Janey's room, woke me up.

'Yeah, that's where I gotta start.'" (Part 2)
Raft College: The First Year, by rglovejoy (part 29): "'Dad,' Daria said in a warning tone, 'remember your heart.' She worried that he might become agitated and then he would end up in the hospital.

Searching for a New Hope, by thatLONERchick (parts 1 - 3): "The girl wore her auburn hair past her waist; it brushed the seat of her desk every time she moved.

The Spectacular Spider-Girl, by Jim North (parts 2 - 5): "She needed to see a doctor. She needed to call a poison center.

That I Can Depend On (Write-off Challenge 6, Round 2), by Dennis (COMPLETE!): "They continued in the same vein for another fifteen minutes before Tom finally stalked out, the bowl of gummy bears just missing his head as he left the kitchen. In the aftermath, she stood alone, heart racing and rage still coursing through her. She wasn't sure she could forgive Tom some of the things he'd said, and part of her hoped she'd wounded him as badly."
That Infernal Nonsense, by Ajar (Act I, Scene X): "Quinn (spoken): I keep telling people that the Fashion Club didn't let him in because he was a guy. It had nothing to do with his popularity. He doesn't need to get all not-asking-out-y just because he really likes your new water boy."

Mack entered the class, followed by Kevin, who was goofing around with a bottle of water in one hand when he tripped over his shoelaces and splashed water on Daria, Daria's desk, and (most infuriatingly) Daria's essay."
The Untitled Crazy Themed Schools Fic!, by Smijey: "'Alright, youse mugs, simmer down!' he called out. 'My name's 'Tommy' O'Neill. You know why the call me Tommy?' He opened the violin case, seized out the Thompson submachine gun inside, and emptied a clip into the ceiling. Bits of plaster rained down upon the students, all of whom seemingly unaffected by the insane act. Daria herself flinched and slumped down lower in the seat."
The Vision of the Burning Cities, by jtranser (Updated!): "'Here, you will learn that the dream movie you are watching is also watching you. It is also a critic judging your performance, an improv group reacting to your input, a trusting friend or an implacable enemy determined on your ruin.'"
Y-Me?, by HolyGrail2007 (parts 17 - 23 ): "Quinn darted off, taking one last peek at Mitch before she left. The kid looked so completely stunned by the fact that Quinn gave him such a gift he didn’t know what to do. But if it worked anything like Brandon, she’d know she could do it as easily as Rebecca. And after that, work on Andy." (Part 18) (Part 19) (Part 20) (Part 21) (Part 22) (Part 23)
