At Least Keeping His Eyes Closed Won't be a Problem!

Happy 67th birthday to George Lucas, creator of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies. Interesting alter ego on the right, but somehow I doubt that Trent really has either the stamina or the motivation to hunt down priceless artifacts and fight off Nazis.

Fanfic Update!

  • A Different Look at 1111, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 2): "Quinn stared at Sandi. She had read that copy of Waif. There was nothing about frills going out of fashion in there. 'Of course, Sandi,' she said. 'There has to be some way I can refute her claim without jeopardising my position,' she thought. Then it hit her. The weirdness of the house! She dashed to the kitchen. 'I have realised that I have to get something out of the garage,' she said."

  • Doctor Who – The Many Doctors (Non-Daria), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (prologue): "'That is not the reason we are going off course,' the Doctor said, with a disapproving tone. 'Do you know what the reason is then?' Sigrun Friorikadottir asked. 'The reason is that the TARDIS is going off course, is that it wants to go off course, remember that the TARDIS is alive, so to speak' the Doctor said."

  • End of the Rope (Scenes no Daria fanfic should have: It's Friday!!), by thatLONERchick (COMPLETE!): "Quinn pulled the shop door open, took a deep breath and stepped inside. She gave her best smile as she walked up to the counter and pulled a velvet bag out of her purse."

  • Esteemster Series, by TheExcellentS (part 4): "Sue: (off-mic) "Are they booing me again, Dee? I can hear them booing me. These people aren't important enough to boo me! These hillbilly trash need to go back home and tend to their cows!""

  • God Save The Esteem ep30: Dance Noon, by Charles RB (parts 2 and 3): "'Ha, I got sod all. Sorry.' Stacy blinked and her face took on a scowl. 'Alright bitch, here's a fucking idea: let's just, shock horror, put on some lights and music and let people do their own fucking dancing. Get some beer in and old-school Misfits, who needs to over think this?!' 'Uh.' Sandi somehow managed to take a step backwards while sitting down. 'Th-That's an interesting idea, S-Stacy...'" (Part 3)

  • Hothouse Flower, by RX-87 (part 4): "'He looks kinda familiar...' She thought, but couldn't quite place him. But then, there was a lot she couldn't remember. 'Thanks.' The coach said. Tiffany doubted it was whoever she might've been thinking of when he spoke. She was sure she'd never heard that voice before."

  • The Interview (Iron chef: Super Jail/ Daria crossover), by untra (COMPLETE!): "'Can I help you?' A bored Alice sighed across her desk, whilst twirling her baton. The visitor seemed different in a way, as if her lines were thicker and her disposition more serious. 'I'm here to apply for a job,' Janet Barch replied sternly. 'I have a lot of pent up anger, and I need to channel it into something productive.'"

  • Life of Love (Long Story Challenge 3, Round 3), by Hyrin (COMPLETE!): "With a sigh, the man leaned down and touched Trent's forehead. The headache cleared instantly, as did his vision. 'Who are you?' Trent whispered softly. 'Well, everyone calls me Mack, but my real name' he said as he began to glow with a Heavenly light, 'is Michael. And I'm here to help you help Daria and Jane.'" (Part 3b)

  • LLH Mini - 'Wind Beneath My Wings' (SFMB), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): ""Mmmmm... ullll... hello?" "J-J-J-Janey...?" "Wind...? Hey... HEY! It's almost four in the morning!""

  • Make Way for Daria (Iron Chef: Boston Crossover), by Dennis (COMPLETE!): "'Shit,' Daria said to herself. 'I'm already 45 minutes late thanks to the fucked up traffic in this city and now I can't cross the street.' Raising her voice, she said, 'What the hell is taking so long?'"

  • Not So Different 20: Not Kindred Spirits, by J-D (COMPLETE!): "'That's a beautiful piece of work.' Jane smiled sunnily at Ted. 'It's a really nice thing to make for a friend.' Sonny didn't know whether Ted could detect the subtle emphasis on the last word, but he could, and he knew Jane meant him to. Well, two can play at that kind of game, he thought, and one of them's the expert."

  • Not So Different 21: Hothouse Ghetto, by J-D (COMPLETE!): "Marina continued by asking Sonny about his goal, presumably on the inadequate grounds that he was sitting next to Jodie. Sonny explained that he didn't have any. Marina insisted that he must. Right, both barrels, thought Sonny. 'My goal is to avoid getting any more of the beatings which have been a regular part of my school experience until now, but without compromising my personal standards to achieve that end.' Marina giggled nervously. Sonny felt confident she wouldn't bother him again and he was right."

  • Quinn of Hearts, by Kristen Bealer (part 3): "Daria paused in thought for a moment, then shrugged. 'Okay, I'll bite. What's wrong?' Quinn waved her over. 'Listen, have you ever had to spend time with people who said stupid things, but they made fun of you or thought you were weird if you tried to correct them?' Daria's expression didn't change. 'Yes. Yes, I have.'"

  • Rude Awakening Ep. 4: It's That Kind of Day, by DIsaac (COMPLETE!): "(Robert is sieving with anger as he walks out then after the door closes, Jodie and Judith give each others high fives and pats on the back.) JODIE: Is that a smile on your face, Judy? JUDITH: (deadpans): I guess the bitch is dead."

  • Rude Awakening Ep 5: Switching Formats, by DIsaac (part 1): "DARIA: Ahh, Cheap wine. The drink of female writers. If I was a guy I would have some beer in here. I wonder ... what if - me and Jane were guys? Would we be the same people? Well I'm a writer, so I'll write it out! (Daria walks over to the writing corner of her apartment with her computer ready)"

  • Silent Melody, by Silver: "Washington- Scientists today confirmed that previously unknown forms of radiation and energy are responsible for the auroral display now referred to as 'The Erruption' this past summer. The exact properties of these new phenomena elude scientists, but there has been some reports of mutations occurring in human beings, most notably increases in physical stamina and intelligence. This has resulted in public concern over supposed Soviet 'super agents' infiltrating the US..."

  • These Scarred Walls (Possible Iron Chef: Maimed/Scarred Quinn), by Jim North (COMPLETE!): "Daria stood, her expression one of conflicted emotions, her friendship with Jane and desire to protect Quinn crashing together like two ships caught in a storm. Jane noticed this and prepared to back off meekly, but she heard Quinn call out Daria's name. The elder sister balked at whatever she had been about to say, the side of her lip twitching, and a little of Jane's confidence returned. 'No, please, it's nothing like that!" she told Daria, holding her hands up in defense. "I . . . the second I saw Quinn . . . I just . . . I wanted to paint her.'"

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: Boston Crossover), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "Daria was walking across the street, when she suddenly found herself accosted by a bunch of teenagers who were all wearing bright shirts with blocky horizontal stripes.

  • Unnamed story (Possible Iron Chef: Maimed/Scarred Quinn), by Stripey (COMPLETE!): "Beavis: Yeah, heheh, can I like, touch your thingies? Eheheh. Are they as weird as the rest of you? Tiffany: Saaaandiiii? Sandi: Here *hands Tiffany her lighter* Tiffany: Thaaanks. Iiiiii liiiike fiiiiiire."

  • Where Nobody Wants to Know Your Name (Iron Chef: Boston Crossover), by Hyrin (COMPLETE!): "Daria sat at the bar, nursing her drink. Stupid hick screwed up my screwdriver again, she thought with a sigh as she sipped and tasted apple juice. A few seats over, she could hear one of the regulars yammering on about some piece of trivia, but couldn't be bothered to correct him."

  • Winter Interludes, by Chris Tucker: "A few moments later, armed with suggestions, Daria was off to the cafe car. Jane leaned over the table and spoke to Connie. 'Let me bounce something off you. Daria's been through wringer these past few weeks. How about tonight, you spend the night at my place, let her have some private time with her family. What do you think?'"
