"Hey, how many of you people out here are a national monument, raise your hand, please?"
On this day in 1886, the Statue of Liberty (left) was unveiled and dedicated. Although the statue never appeared and wasn't mentioned on the show, Jane's alter ego (right) is a reference to it. Unless it's actually a reference to Ghostbusters II.
Either way, please enjoy this fanfic update!
The fiercest battles lie within, by VPrad (part 22): "Two male voices got into the same classroom. One of the voices was deep, and seemed to be the one of a middle-aged man, the other one seemed to be of a younger man, maybe in his early twenties. Jane’s heart accelerated when she realized they were only a few meters from her."
God Save The Esteem ep10: Hell Is Other Parents, by Charles RB (parts 2 and 3): "'Because I’m not going to suffer public humiliation, not when I can be watching someone else’s humiliation. You are going to help me and Tom bust out.'" (Part 3)
>The Invitation--the Facebook Edition, by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): "Daria Morgendorffer and Brittany Taylor added breathing to their interests."
Jane Morgendorffer, by LadieT (part 20): "Jane sat on her bed and watched Daria's expression as Penny walked over to her. Trent slid over to make way for their older sister, but continued to hold Daria in a protective hug."
Kolchak: The Lawndale File, by Chris Tucker (continued): "When you've looked a vampire straight in the eye, poured salt in a sleeping zombie's mouth and then sewed its lips shut, confronted Jack the Ripper and lived to tell the tale, some two bit ward-heeler from a two bit mayor of a two bit jerkwater bedroom community is about as scary as a week old kitten, but nowhere near as cute."
Patience, by NightGoblyn (parts 5 and 6): "Trent's frown deepened. 'Then where'd all the blood come from?' The doctor lowered the clipboard and gave Trent a direct, penetrating look. 'That's a really good question, Trent. Something you might want to think about before you spend too much time alone with her.'" (Part 6)
Raft College: The First Year, by rglovejoy (part 30): "When they came though to the other side, Daria saw the difference right away. It was a forest scene, but everything was very brightly colored, but with very little detail. She looked down at her hands: they were a single color, without any marks or blemishes. Oddly, there was a thick black outline around each of her fingers, and everything else as well."
Secret Connectivity: The Amanda Conspiracy, or, Writer's Block Comix, by gwrtheyrn (COMPLETE!): "Away from Jane's eyes, he looked both more perturbed and less confident than he'd tried to appear to her. Jake Morgendorffer wasn't a detective, and didn't have any clear idea about how to conduct a missing persons search himself."
The Spectacular Spider-Girl, by Jim North (parts 10 - 12): "The sight of that much human being barreling toward her caused Jane to freeze up momentarily, but the massive buzz of her spider-sense snapped her out of it. With only moments to spare, she leaped up and back to land just shy of the top of the cage. When she gripped the bars and propped her sneakers back against them, she found that they weren't actually stiff but had a fair bit of give to them." (Part 11) (Part 12)
Unnamed story, by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): "Trent trudged along the side of the road, humming the beginnings of a new song in development. His guitar was slung across his back, but for now he was content to compose unaccompanied. He looked over at Jesse, who was staring blankly ahead as usual as they walked together. They hadn't said much since they'd left the broken-down Tank, aside from occasional speculation on how much further it would be before they found a town and, more importantly, a tow truck."
Worldburner: NegaJane, by Erin Mills (part 3): "'Dash it all, Jane!' Daria Morgendorffer, Improvisational Mechanologist, swore as she tucked her skirts around her knees, which in turn were clasped tightly around the mooring rope of the swiftly rising dirigible of the insidious Baron von Ruttheimer."
Y-Me?, by HolyGrail2007 (parts 26 and 27): "Tanya laughed, seeing it merely as friendly competition. And it was, in a way. Getting guys was never personal, although some people made that mistake in thinking that way. Tanya went out as a group all the time, Quinn was sure she’d understand." (Part 27)
