Blow That Horn, Mack Daddy!

Today is International Jazz Day, and Mack is giving all he's got as the late jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie. Any jazz fans out there in fandom? I know we have at least one trumpet player. Also, who on Daria do you think would be a fan of jazz?

Fanfic Update!
  • Babblefish (Scenes No Daria Fanfic Should Ever Have: Sick, Sad Edition), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "'So, Daria,' Jane asked, 'did you hear?' 'Always have, most likely will.' 'No, I mean--did you hear about the new exchange student?"

  • Blast from the Past, by Smijey (COMPLETE!): "Daria was watching the Blast Corps. video half-heartedly, focusing more on writing the latest Melody Powers adventure. Really, Jane had wanted to watch the video, and Daria didn't want to kick her friend out, so she got to watch the old game being played by one of its dedicated vans."

  • Daria and Co. (Are Forced To) Read 'My Immortal' (Iron Chef; You're Standing on My Immortal), by Shiva (part 10): "The group found themselves mesmerized as it reached the edge of the table and dangled precariously and then began to race around the outer edges of the table like a race car. 'I guess whoever is doing this wants our attention.' Daria muttered under her breath."

  • Daria: Virtual Season 4, by peapotmaster (part 1): "QUINN Daria, can you do me a favor? DARIA Don't you ever knock? And the answer is no. QUINN I need to use your room for the next Fashion Club meeting, and..." (Second version)

  • Ethan Yeager in Lawndale: CH 11 Broken?, by Shiva (part 2): "'Doesn't he remind you of someone?' Jane mulled that over and asked, 'Who?' 'Me.' Daria said flatly, 'Before I met you.'"

  • The Fall, by Ranger Thorne (part 5): "Giles pulled the phone away to blink at it before holding it back to his ear. 'Horace Watson? Has something happened to the Council?' 'No. Well, the council has done something. I just found out that a team has been sent to terminate your Slayer.'"

  • I Hate You So Much Right Now, by Brother Grimace (parts 1 - 3): "It was the smell of burning metal, fuel and overcooked meat that made Stacy's nose twitch as she regained her senses, barely seconds after the concussion of the exploding Gridrunner had tossed her across the length of the hangar..." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • I Loathe a Pay-Per-View, by SacredDust (parts 1 - 3): "Your parents are working late. Your annoying siblings are out of the house. And Pizza King is on the way. There's only one thing that could make this imaginary night better: the wrestling show you ordered on your mom's credit card. You turn on the TV, flip past Sick Sad World, and there it is..." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • Lawndale and Sandi Griffin's Genie (Chapter 8), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 9): "The squirrel who had taken the Emerald from the Griffin's and lost it to Tamsin arrived at the Varmittan Palace Tree after walking there rather slowly. 'I must report my failure at grabbing that emerald,' he said to the guards at the bottom of the Tree."

  • Layers (1,001 Deaths of Tom Sloane - Part II), by SacredDust (COMPLETE!): "'So, Daria tells me you date quite a bit,' Tom said lightly. 'Ohhh, I don't think so," his girlfriend's sister waved a hand with transparent modesty. '...Well yeah.' He chuckled. So this was the first layer of her personality, and the only one most people ever saw. Tom wondered how deep he could go before Daria or her parents got home."

  • Li's Science Substitute (IC: DeMartino has Barch Arrested), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "'I don't believe this!' Li hissed through her clenched teeth as soon as the door to her office was shut with the cops safely on the other side of it's soundproofed goodness."

  • The Mageborn Cynic : Daria & the School of Magic : Part 3, by peetz5050 (part 3): "Mack gave them all his most charming smile and was rewarded with friendly smiles in return. These mages were definitely his superiors in the craft and could have cold-shouldered him if they chose but the impromptu demonstration by Lady Daria at lunchtime today had shown that they all had much to learn, particularly when it came to magical defense and offense."

  • The Punk and the Snark, by Shiva (part 6): "It didn't take Daria and Bob long to discover that everyone in school knew that they had gone on a date. That was because Brittany Taylor and Kevin Thompson came up to them, wearing full uniform as usual, and pretty much blurted it out like this."

  • Quinn's Code 07: The Grounded Geek, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (COMPLETE!): "Slowly the lights flicked back on, with an addition. Two spotlights were focused on the entrance. Suddenly Cindy and Kristen entered, skating and wearing Guild Wars inspired cosplay. 'Quinn, what are you doing?' Daria asked rhetorically. 'Something that will get her into trouble no doubt,' Jennifer groused, quietly."

  • Quinn's Code 08: Alternapalooza, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "Cindy turned from her computer where she had been reading a game strategy site. 'Would you like to come to Alternapalooza this weekend?' she asked. Quinn looked up from her DS. 'I've heard of that. Some kind of alternative music festival?' she asked."

  • Raise (IC: Thank God You're Here), by PrecambrianStudios (COMPLETE!): "'Thank God you're here,' Quinn said to Helen, who looked quite frazzled; she had just broken the speed limits on at least five roads to get from work to Quinn, who had called, saying she had an emergency."

  • Suffocation, by PrecambrianStudios (COMPLETE!): "'Are you sure you want to see her, Mrs. Morgendorffer?' asked a doctor to Helen. He nervously bit his lower lip."

  • Twin Tracks (chapter 4), by oni (part 4): "Michelle was puzzled. 'What's Sick Sad World?' Seated into a corner inside Rizzo's Pizza, the four girls made small talk while they waited for their pizza to come."

  • Unnamed story (1,001 Deaths of Tom Sloane - Part II), by LongSnakeMoan (COMPLETE!): "'So Doctor, what's my diagnosis?'"

  • Unpopular, by Reven384 (COMPLETE!): "'I've never,' Quinn her voice small, 'I wasn't ready.' 'I'll take it slow, but this is what couples do. You do want to be my girlfriend right?' he said, 'Because I really want to be your boyfriend. I've never had a girlfriend as pretty as you.'"

  • Victor Morgendorffer, by Shiva (part 12): "The first thing that Victor picked up on was the smell, the Zon stunk of booze, pot, vomit, assorted other drugs, more vomit, and a certain perfume that came from never having been properly scrubbed since opening day."
