Oh, and could you get me a soda? In a crystal goblet?

Just got back in town last night after visiting family for Thanksgiving, so I don't have a big fancy blog post ready. Everyone just close your eyes and pretend there are fireworks and breathtaking insights and whatever else you'd like to see here. On the other hand, I do have a nice shiny...

Fanfic Update!

  • Contrails, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "My name is Jamie White – and today, I have somewhere to go. Somewhere that matters. Today – I'm going to become a Legionnaire."

  • Daria/Dorian 11: So This Is Bonding, by LadieT (part 2): "Dorian turned towards his father. Something is bothering him, but he's afraid to tell me what it is. Maybe I should tell him that I have gotten over my anger of him not telling me about the curse. Jane is right - he really is a good guy and I hate to say it, but our relationship has improved since the change. He really does need to hear that more from me than he does and I should thank him for how much he has helped me through this."

  • Eye on the Ball, by HolyGrail2007 (parts 4 and 5): "Finn wanted Mommy to come. If Mommy was there, he could make Mommy really happy. And happy Mommy was the same as happy Daddy. No one was arguing, and screaming. No one was going away." (Part 5)

  • Family Ties That Bind (Iron Chef: Younger Tom), by InvisibleDan (COMPLETE!): "He began to wait around for her to finish shelving books so they could go to their classes together. Every morning he would look forward to the five or ten minutes they would have as they slowly walked to their lockers. Cindy was the first girl he'd really gotten to talk to, the first one who was both interesting and not interested in his family or their wealth or power in Lawndale."

  • The fiercest battles lie within, by VPrad (part 27): "Without saying a word, Buck Conroy walked to Jane and hit her hard with his gun. The impact made Jane fall to the floor. She quickly looked back to the man with a defiant look, as a warm trail of blood was coming down her face. The man pointed his gun at her, that girl had killed one of his men and he would return her the favor."

  • Freak The Fur Out, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "The nightclub was packed with animals having a good time; dancing, listening to the music, and just enjoying the party atmosphere. This was where Sissy really felt alive - where she could just cut loose, and let everything she had off the chain for the party crowd..."

  • A Great Halloween Party, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'Tonight, we will forgo several of the usual party activities, and welcome a special guest!' Amy called out, waving forward the girl in the bodysuit. 'I present to you – Judith!'"

  • It's Eureka, Daria: Spiral Dynamics, by RLobinske (part 5): "Jane said, 'It looks like Mission Control.' Seated at a console, Henry said, 'At one time, they planned to launch an orbital test Orion from here. It was a fairly simple matter to convert a console over to run your brother's sound system.'"

  • The James Lane Chronicles Chapter 4: Dedicated Follower of Fashion, by InvisibleDan (parts 1 and 2): "'I think maybe if you were a girl my parents would let me sleep over.' 'Me? A girl? Can you imagine me like that? I would probably be in the Fashion Club fighting over who should be in charge. Or I would be a cheerleader trying to steal Kevin away from Brittany.'" (Part 2)

  • Lawndale and Sandi Griffin's Genie (Chapter 2), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 2): "Back at the Griffin's, Sam Griffin (the middle child) saw Sandi go into the bathroom. 'Time for some investigating,' he thought. He then tip-toed to Chris's door and looked inside. He saw that his brother was still asleep. 'Good, I can investigate without his annoying interference.'"

  • Lawndale's Finest: Detective Stories #6, by LSauchelli (part 3): "She stayed in the cave, alone with a candle that shone bright. She looked at her reflection in the frozen mirror, and only saw herself. She was the same girl she had been the day before, and the day before that, and the day of her parents' murder. But she also used to be a sociopath; the only thing keeping her sane was the idea that someday she would find solace in the death of her tormentor. Now there was a spark of something different. Something grander."

  • Legends Of The Metal, by TheExcellentS (part 7): "'Whoa. OK, you must be the Metal Queen. I would ask nicely for some of your giant bass strings...' He looked at the spider, with its glowing blue eyes and sharp bladed legs. 'But you don't strike me as the negotiating type, so out of personal respect I'll just get right to the ass kicking.'"

  • Night Falls Upon The Line, by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'Permission to come aboard, Commander.' The woman – like most of those on the command deck, dressed in what appeared to be a sturdier version of a flight suit, colored in the blue hue preferred by the Corps - came to a halt in front of Richard. 'Permission granted, Supervisor,' Rita replied. 'Welcome aboard the Sky Vault Avalon.'"

  • Screams of Silence, by Jim North (parts 1 - 3): "A dark shape loomed ahead, taking the form of a tree as I approached. The green of the leaves and dull silver of the bark could be discerned a few steps later, and I could spot a few squirrels moving through the branches. It was at that point that I froze in my tracks and felt all the blood drain from my face." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • Sibling Rivalry (1,001 Deaths of Tom Sloane - Part II), by thatLONERchick (COMPLETE!): "Tom lay unmoving in an alley, face down in a pool of spreading blood. The sounds of a parade could be heard in the background."

  • The Vision of the Burning Cities, by jtranser: "As Daria casually squeezed the trigger of the Hello Kitty Taser, she became aware of a strange melding of a powerful alien intelligence with her own thought processes. 'Jumpin' Monkeys!!', she thought."

  • Worldburner: NegaJane, by Erin M. (COMPLETE!): "Daria and Elsie blinked and turned to face the newcomer. Both stared at the sight of NegaJane standing in the doorway to the Fosdex chamber. Her lips were pulled back, revealingher black teeth set in an evil grin. She had one arm around Jane's throat, her free hand held close to Jane's cheek. Tendrils of static electricity sparked off NegaJane's fingers, making the Aviatrix wince." (Part 6)

  • Worldburner: Skip and Amelia Save The World (...Maybe), by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "The undead, the supervillainous, the demonic – a Ringbearer must be prepared to face any of them, but all paled before the ungodly terror that was Skip Stevens talking." (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4)

  • Worldburner: When It Rains, by RLobinske (part 3): "A door on the side opened and an armored woman wearing a green cloak stepped out. A droll, mature voice said, 'I appear to have arrived early.'"
