A Hair-Raising Episode


It's a day that will live in fandom infamy. The episode "Dye! Dye! My Darling" first aired on this day in 2000, and you could probably hear the cries of shock and outrage all over the world. And really, can you blame us for that reaction? I mean, those hair puns were awful. Oh, and there was something about a kiss or whatever, too.

Fanfic Update!
  • Attack of the Show! 2 Shows, One.......uh..........whatever (Scenes No Daria Fan-Fic Should Have: Why, oh God WHY?!), by PrecambrianStudios (COMPLETE!): "'Good morning, everyone,' Daria said as she gave her trademark smile (which was painstakingly faked) to the camera.

  • Darius Taylor, by Shiva (part 14): "Ashley Amber had enjoyed watching her step children and Tom let loose at the shooting range, granted the first few times Steve had taken her had been a little scary, but she had gotten used to it."

  • Fallout Takedown (IC: Todd and Jane Ianuzzi -Takedown), by Vukodlak (COMPLETE!): "So the couple whose love for one another was surpassed for the utter disregard for the lives of most everyone else fled into hiding with their adoptive children.

  • A Grave Task (iC: Good Questions. Silly Snarky Answers), by Dennis (COMPLETE!): "The headstone of the overgrown grave had long since worn down. Only the word 'Johanssen' was visible to the black-clad men who sank their shovels into the turf."

  • Kelly Thompson: Party Time Sibling Style, by LadieTAG (part 2): "'Kelly Thompson - is she related to Kevin Thompson?' her mom asked. 'She's his twin sister,' Daria replied. A rare smile came over Helen's face at that news. 'It's about time you started working on your social skills.'"

  • My Dad the Director XXX (Iron Chef: My Dad, the director), by macross (parts 1 and 2): "'Okay Morgendorffer spill it. I've heard you mention once or twice that the reasons you parent are always flying off to California is because their involved in 'the business' but you've never actually explained what business that is, or what they do in it. So spill already.'" (Part 2)

  • A New Direction (Iron Chef: My Dad, the director), by peetz5050 (part 2): "Jane got up at her regular time - 12.30 - and went for a run. After a shower and a bite she set up a new canvas on her easel and stared at it for a while. And another while. And then for a while longer. The she gave in and fired up her laptop and Googled Daria Morgendorffer."

  • Something (Slightly) Wicked Ch2, by macross (part 7): "A few minutes later Monique and Penny arrived at the bar for a few celebratory beers when the Morgendorffers approached them.

  • Unnamed story (iC: Good Questions. Silly Snarky Answers), by JPAGC (COMPLETE!): "Amy carefully looked left and right as she exited the car, keeping her head down as much as possible. The sunglasses, fedora hat and raincoat with the lapels up should cover as much as her face was possible, but she really worried about being recognized."

  • Unnamed story (iC: Good Questions. Silly Snarky Answers), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "Daria and Jane stood in the backyard, looking at the large cardboard box on the ground. 'Well, you spoke the truth,' observed Jane. 'It's a box, all right.'"
