Anniversaries and Time Lords

Three years ago today, The Angst Guy posted the first entry in this very blog. Happy birthday, DFB2! And if you're reading this, thank you, TAG!

November 23rd was also the day the BBC aired the first episode of Doctor Who, in 1963. Both Yui Daoren's Doctor Who Gives A Damn and Ranger Thorne's Lane Change series have crossed Daria with Doctor Who, so have at 'em!

New Fanfic!

  • Appearance of the Morning Star, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "The scream that flowed from Daria as her breakfast tray went flying hurt the ears of the three dogs that lived in the house two doors down, and nearly deafened Jake for several seconds. 'It's Lynn!' Daria shrieked, losing total control of her body functions; frozen with terror, her fingers began tearing through the fabric and stuffing of the armrests as her began to shake uncontrollably."

  • Eye on the Ball, by HolyGrail2007 (part 3): "Jake looked around and wondered if Helen had arrived yet. It was really too bad she had to miss this. But he didn’t see her anywhere. She worked so hard, and Jake was really glad to have her as a wife. Aside from being a ravenous tiger in the bedroom, she was intelligent and capable, and she got a lot of things done when she set her mind to it. It was a great role model for the kids to have. Not like bungling him."

  • The fiercest battles lie within, by VPrad (part 26): "The teenagers’ faces reflected the pure terror of somebody facing a premature death. They all were thinking about all the things from life they would miss, every single moment spent with their loved ones, all those things they would never be able to say."

  • God Save The Esteem Ep12: Misery, Clicked, by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "'You’re admitting that the school fails to teach literacy? That seems a strange thing to do if you think I’m a whistleblower.'" (Part 3)

  • Halloween Treats, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "Jake took a step back as he saw his wife step out of the shadows and into the light from the bathroom; his stomach felt as though it would violently empty itself at any moment as he looked at Helen..."

  • Hope (Whatever happened to Tommy Sherman), by LadieT (COMPLETE!): "Over the past couple of weeks, the anger has subsided some, but it was soon joined by pain and sadness. Now, like Pandora's Box once it was opened and the evils released, all that is left is hope."

  • Jane Morgendorffer, by LadieT (part 25): "Helen cringed for a moment and asked Jake to have the kids join them. When everyone was in the living room, Helen drew a long breath. The happiness of the day had been momentarily halted by one sentence."

  • Legends Of The Metal, by TheExcellentS (part 6): "Eventually, the mosh pit offensive brought them to the Killmasters lair at the top of the mountain. The retreat was littered with candles and stones, while more metallic webs were strewn all around. Several young women in matching leather jackets sat on stone thrones arranged in a semi circle."

  • Letting Go, by Raskolnikov (COMPLETE!): "For a moment, so brief it made him wodner that perhaps it was just his imagination, he saw a silent plea behind those walls of glass. It was barely a whisper, but he was used to a relationship where the most important things wasn't adressed directly. For a tenth of second, she was begging for him to agree with her, to confirm her that she was not mistaken, and that he wanted that as badly as she did."

  • Raft College: The First Year, by rglovejoy (part 36): "Right now, she had a job to do. Her books were laid out on the small table by the window overlooking Crestmore Yard. She had a clear view of Crestmore House, the university's main administration building. It was about nine o'clock on a Thursday night, and she was on a stakeout."

  • Scarlett the Fairy Goes out for a Pizza, by Aloysius (part 1): "One fine day, Scarlett the Fairy decided that she wanted to have a pizza. Not just any pizza, either, but a Chicago-style stuffed crust pizza, filled with pepperoni, mushrooms and fresh spinach. The main problem with that, however, is that the further away you get from Chicago, the less likely you are to actually find such a pizza."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: Younger Tom), by Quiverwing (COMPLETE!): "Within seconds, an excited five-year-old emerged through the door of the lounge. 'Brrrrrrrom! Which one’s mine, mummy?! Which one’s mine?!,' Tom asked with a smile across his face."

  • Whatever Happened to Sandi Griffin (Whatever happened to Tommy Sherman), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "'Attitude! You don’t know what is like to be brought up by a control freak, with two brats for siblings! And to top that off, to be cast out of your own Club because you yourself had set the standards too high!' Sandi shouted. She turned back from the principal again and this time left the office."

  • Y-Me?, by HolyGrail2007 (COMPLETE!): "Lawndale seemed so dead to her now, when compared to Pepper Hill. Given that it was in a city, that wasn’t surprising, but, even more than the lack of many things to do, everything reminded Quinn of who she was: The boys she exploited, the utter lack of basic humanity she showed them. She may have been a bit better to the girls, but not by much: Fashion Club hopefuls were as easy to exploit as boys, only they could pick out makeup without seeming strange."
