Quinn Probably Has the Same Reaction to Cotton-Poly Blends

On this day in 1905, Joan Crawford was born. Jodie, doing her best Crawford impression on the left, asks us all to remember that she prefers non-wire hangers as birthday gifts, please.

New Fanfic!
  • Awakening, by Chris Tucker (part 5): "'Miss Morgendorffer, for someone who has endured and survived what you have endured and survived, trusting someone is difficult, trusting a stranger, who will be making you confront and understand and it is to be hoped, overcome your problems, it is even more difficult. I must EARN that trust! I will not lie to you, ever. You will see that there are no notepads. I will not take notes tonight. There are no hidden recorders. This is just two people conversing. And we start by you asking me anything you'd like about myself.'"

  • The Black Boots (Crossovers Still Crossing Over), by RLobinske (COMPLETE!): "Inside, a few odds and ends actually attracted Daria's attention, but she kept her focus and examined the boots in stock. Most were not to her liking and even fewer would fit her small foot. Near the end of the aisle, she spotted a pair of above the knee, cuffed, black boots. They were made of very fine grade leather, polished to perfection and by all apparences, flawless."

  • Bound to Highland, by RLobinske (parts 12 and 13): "Daria moved quickly when she heard the telephone ring. 'Hello.' 'Hi, Daria,' Quinn said. 'I made it. I survived. I passed my last final.' For one of the few times in her life, Daria felt real happiness. 'Congratulations, Quinn. I can't wait to see your graduation.' 'That means a lot to me.'" (Part 13)

  • Daria is Raven's Apprentice, by project pegasus: "Joe Biden: Hey, it's like that scene from the 'Karate Kid'! Sensei John Kreese: (sliding down a rope) No! It’s nothing like that stupid scene. For one, my men aren’t in skeleton costumes. They are in zebra camo uniforms for savannah warfare, specially designed so they can blend into herds of zebras and ambush enemies. Starfire: Even I think that is the stupid."

  • General Semantics, Private Angst, by gwrtheyrn (part 37): "'We need to get our hands on that Distorter, today, if we can. Configured the way it is, it's one of the few Imperial devices in the Solar System that has no plausible deniability. The League needs it, for evidence.' Daria was crying, now -- silent tears of bitter grief and fury. 'The League! They've let Enro move to take over a star system without so much as issuing a warning. They're useless imbeciles, as far as I can see,' she said, angrily."

  • God Save The Esteem ep24: Write in the Nads, by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "Punk music had failed him, he knew: he'd let himself think there was another way than getting whacked down and doing what he was told and failing, let himself think he could rebel. He never would again. Then he went out one day and saw a green-haired babe in ripped denim everythings and pierced nose and high leather boots walking down the street towards him. 'It's a sign,' he whispered. 'IT'S A SIGN! I WAS BEING TESTED LIKE THAT GUY WHO HAD HIS KIDS KILLED! I SEE THE LIGHT!' Young Helen immediately headbutted the creepy screaming religious guy." (Part 5)

  • Last Dance (Write-off challenge 9 round 2), by Dennis (part 1): "Daria woke as if in a dream. Standing over her bed was a shortish, but handsome young man in a light green jacket with dark green slacks and a white shirt. The logical part of her mind said she should scream, but that part didn't seem to be in control. Besides, the impish expression on his face made him easily recognizable. 'Paddy,' she whispered, as she sat up in bed. 'Hello, my sweet Daria,' said the spirit of St. Patrick's Day, his brogue soft and lilting."

  • Life After Highland (Iron Chef: Lawndale State), by LadieT (part 22): "The next day, Daria, Jane, and Trent were sitting in the Lanes' kitchen talking about the night before. While Daria was explaining the cut on her hand, Trent's mind began to wonder back to their conversation in front of the Zon. So many broken pieces. Daria, why do I feel like you're going to be the hardest to put back together?"

  • Mad Dog's Legacy Chapter 6: Model Misbehavior, by Hyrin (parts 3 and 4): "Then Daria came out and the scouts dropped their jaws. Her hair was pulled back in a French braid, and she wore only a small amount of makeup: pink lipstick, light eyeshadow, and a touch of blush. Her boots had been replaced by black flats, and in place of her normal ensemble she wore a black skirt that ended below the knees and a forest green blouse. Her glasses were firmly in place, and were the only thing that allowed anyone to identify the girl." (Part 4)

  • Promises, by LadieT (part 11): "When they finally woke up, Jane walked into Cleo's room to find her bed empty. She looked out on the porch and saw Cleo and Jake fingerpainting. Laughing at the green nose Jake was now sporting, Jane headed for the kitchen. Helen was sitting at the table reading the paper. Pouring herself a cup of coffee, Jane sat next to her mother-in-law in silence. Helen looked over at Jane for a moment before moving her glance to the table."

  • Questions Asked, Questions Answered, & Pizza with Jane Chapter 3, by Lord Yellowtail (part 1): "Daria pressed the crown of her head against the aphid-white wall of the shower, letting the near-scalding water pummel her bruised flesh into ... into ... something too relaxed and spongy to hurt this bad. Especially after the three Advil she had tossed into her Ultra Cola, which should kick in any time now, please. A little stomach bleeding never hurt anyone. Except the ones that bled to death."

  • Rude Awakenings Chapter 1, by DIsaac (COMPLETE!): "I told Daria to call Sandi for that reason. Sandi may have be a bitch and a Type A personality, but she is driven as hell and she know the media market better then anyone else in this city. I wanted her to give her that message that Daria was getting screwed royally by WHUB and should be a confrontation coming with Rally. Well she did her research and got her facts together to nail him hard." (Part 4)

  • Rude Awakening: Episode 2, by DIsaac (part 1): "JANE: (Barley containing laughter) Like them a little big and juicy there, Upchuck. Daria, come look. DARIA: Can't it be unseen? JANE: You won't know if you don't see it."

  • Save the Last Trance for Me, by jtranser: "Jane did a quick jazz hands shake and said: 'Why, I'll have you know My personal taste is as sophisticated as anyone else's. Come over here and check out My special pond.' 'Whoa! Jane, are those what I think they are?' 'Your eyes do not deceive you, Daria. Yes, these are My specially bred ornamental dwarf manatees....'"

  • Screams of Silence, by Jim North: "I walk up to the office window and try to peer in through the now-scratched and scarred glass. Like before, it appears to be mostly empty. The desks have been replaced by fold-out tables, and a Health Drink sits on one of them. Trap? Trap."

  • Summer Fling, by GingerLove84 (COMPLETE!): "DARIA (eyebrow raised): Who said I'm coming back once I leave? (Everyone stares at her in shock.) JANE: Not coming back? DARIA: I'm sure Raft has plenty of summer courses to keep me busy. JANE: You're serious, aren't you? (The guys all look away uncomfortably. Jesse frowns again and turns to the Tank, closing up the cooler.)"

  • Unnamed story (Crossovers Still Crossing Over), by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "(Upchuck comes flying into the room, crackling with Kirby Dots) Upchuck: 'Engarde, Mister Sloane!' (The two boys face off) Upchuck: 'I'm Daria's first Fanfic Boyfriend! Let our fight - BEGIN!'"

  • Unnamed story (Long Story Challenge #2), by untra (part 1): "Daria began to stammer, and her breathing hastened. 'This has to be altered somehow... How can... Oh my god...' Jane peered over her shoulder and saw just what made her friend's eyes bulge. 'Daria,' Jane whispered, trying to suppress the laughter bubbling out of her. 'Since when do you own a fur bikini?'"

  • We3, by Ranger Thorne (parts 1- 4): "Daria's monotone had been a key tool in making the other poker players react in ways to show how good their hands were. The large pile of money in front of her was testament to how successful that and her usual controlled expression had been. 'No, I gotta, wait a minute.' Standing, the blond-headed 19-year-old went to where his backpack was sitting. Lifting the small case that was lying beside it, he returned to the table. 'How about some collateral?'" (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4)

  • Worldburner: They Were Nine, by Erin M. (part 5): "She glared down at Upchuck, fixing him with a bright orange stare. 'Any other pointlessly stupid attempts at heroism before I fry you?' 'Not from me,' Upchuck said, with a smirk. There was a massive crash of metal on metal and NegaJane whirled around just in time to be buried under books and the metal bookshelf that had been tilted over onto her. Upchuck crawled out from under the table as Brittany appeared from where she had shoved the bookcase, smiling brightly."
