"Oh, the lack of humanity."

It was on this day in 1937 that the Hindenburg disaster took place. Daria has immortalized the event on the door of her locker, possibly because it sums up her attitude toward high school.

Speaking of high school, today we also celebrate National Teacher Day, so let's go appreciate Ms. Barch--ugh. Er, how about Mr. O'Neill--hmm. Well, we could always tell Mr. DeMartino...on second thought, I'd rather keep my distance from that particular walking time bomb, too. Let's just appreciate them from afar, okay?

Fanfic Update!
  • ASPS 2, by PrecambrianStudios (parts 13 and 14): "She really wanted to scratch her nose. Lisa Alkaev, a sixteen-year old sophomore with brown hair styled in a pixie cut, wrinkled her nose, hoping the itch would just go away, but of course it didn't." (Part 14)

  • Behind the Counter, by NightGoblyn (part 8): "'You,' the woman said, pausing in the door with what was obviously intended to be a dramatic turn. 'When we sit around at the bar and talk about which one of you we hate the most, it's you.'"

  • Chips Off the Older Block, by Indigo (part 3): "Daria and Quinn were walking to school when three of Quinn's admirers Joey, Jeffy, and Jamie approached them eager to do anything that might win over the younger Ms Morgendorffer"

  • Credence, by Astrocar82 (part 9): "Daria was soon hooked up to machines and monitors that could do the tasks that her brain apparently couldn't anymore. IVs pumped in hormones to her blood. These hormones were supposed to regulate her ability to live and shrink the tumor that had crippled her."

  • Fortune's Fools, by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): "Keveo took a step back, horrified. This is my fault, he realized. If I'd been paying attention, I could have stopped him from getting hurt. I could have stopped-- He looked over at Sam Stybalt, who was snickering with a couple of Oakwood players. --that bastard."

  • Possibilities, by Sureia (parts 1 and 2): "The old place just wasn't what it used to be. It was so quiet now. He hated quiet; quiet meant something was being planned. Quiet meant that his wife had gotten up and he was alone in his bed. Eventually quiet had come to mean that she would never be there again." (Part 2)

  • Quinn's Code 10: Blue Screen of Sherman, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 4): "It was breakfast at the Morgendorffers. 'So I called up Cindy, Kristen, Jenna and Andrea, and the Anime and Programming Clubs are going to take up collections to get safe new goal posts. Like, to honor the dead guy's memory.'"

  • Rude Awakening: The Battle of The Morgendorffers, by DIsaac (part 2): "DARIA: Alright, we got to be at TD Garden by 4pm for the game for our promotional stuff. It will be Me, you and Mack for that. JANE: Daria, You might have a problem with Mack?"

  • Tigresses of Lawndale, by taishigi (parts 15 and 16): "For many, especially the females, the hot topic was the traditional winter formal dance and all its ramifications. Once called the Christmas Ball, in the politically correct era it was now usually known as the Snow Ball or Winter Ball, and was held on the Saturday before Christmas, December 23." (Part 16)

  • Unnamed story ([Iron Chef – Round Robin – Free For All] Time Loops), by NightGoblyn (part 8): "Daria said something droll to their father and Quinn froze. This wasn't right."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria Fan-Fic Should Have: No longer in the 1%), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "'Hell, it could just be the stars coming right and stress! All I know is that the world is ending and I don't want to be alone when it goes.' Andrea's voice broke into panicked sobs. 'Please, Daria. Please.'"

  • Without Warning, by SentrytheDefiant (part 14): "Jace tried his best to ignore the sinking feeling in his stomach as the automated message informed him that the number he was trying to reach was no longer in service. He didn't even realize he was crying until tears started to drop onto the counter."

Generally, the stories posted on the SFMB are either crossposted to the PPMB or are posted in the Baa'd Sheep forum and, following TAG's precedent, I don't include the NSFW stuff on the blog.
