Whatever You Do, Don't Wear Sandals Around Him

Andrea is looking very statuesque (ha, ha) because today is the anniversary of the day the Lincoln Memorial was dedicated in 1922. We could go ask Brittany about how Lincoln died, but I'd prefer to keep my sanity in one piece, thank you.

It was also on this day in 1911 that the first Indianapolis 500 was run. This is an important fact for Future Stacy who, according to the end credits of Is It College Yet?, will one day be a race car driver.

Fanfic Update!
  • Cassaoke (1,001 Deaths of Tom Sloane - Part III), by ognawk (COMPLETE!): "Tom parked his Jaguar on the kerb just outside his destination. He looked at the house and got out of the car, making his way to the front door. Almost as soon as he rang the doorbell, the door swung open and he saw the familiar red hair and glasses of Cassidy Hemming in front of him, an excited looking grin on her face."

  • Daria: College Pains Redux, by James the Lesser (parts 8 and 9): "On Saturday morning Daria wakes up. 'I'm on my floor, why?' Daria sits up and feels her head pounding. 'Damn, drinking, what the hell was I thinking?'" (Part 9)

  • The Fall Before The Pride (Ideas!), by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "'My dear Pope, you must be mistaken.' --- wiped his wire-rimmed glasses with a cleaning cloth while Tom Sloane reclined in a leather armchair. 'I'm serious, Pat, ---.' The name alone was enough to sour Tom's mood."

  • Jane's Body, by Princess-Pasta (COMPLETE!): "The road sign leading to the small, rural community was more of a running gag to Daria Morgendorffer than an invitation to the nonexistent tourists. It made the town sound evil and scary or at least like it had some interesting history...which it didn't."

  • Jane's Tangle, by Snow-Kitty (part 1): "Anthony DeMartino stared despondently into the glass of eight-year-old scotch sitting in front of him, his head slumped in misery as he contemplated the events of that day. It had been his third week as acting principal of Lawndale High School, and the public education system had already been made a mockery of at his fist board meeting for the term."

  • Line Up (Scenes No Daria Fan-Fic Should Have: No longer in the 1%), by ognawk (COMPLETE!): "Leaving the house, Daria made her way to Casa Lane. She got to the front door and knocked, but got no answer. She could faintly hear music coming from inside the house, so decided to let herself in. Once inside, she could hear the music more clearly and was confused."

  • The Machine, by DIsaac and Excellent S (part 2): "Griffin: Before I begin, you may notice that Tiffany and Tori are not with me. Reason is because... what I'm about to say is very personal."

  • Oh, Danny Boy, by Indigo (part 3): "'Low self-esteem is a terrible thing to deal with so it is a good thing that I don't have it. What I do have is low esteem for any female that thinks that she can use me in her little schemes to get to my brother Danny. Oh and just to let you know ladies, he feels the same way about that'"

  • Star Trek: Daria - Resurrection, by echopapa (parts 6 and 7): "Captain Jean-Luc Picard was a slim man of medium height. He was balding, (very), with a thin fringe of white hair around the back of his head. He wore a red tunic with four pips on the collar. 'Allow me,' he said with a rich, cultured British accent, shaking Daria's hand, his eyes shining with friendliness. 'I am sorry that duty has kept me from making your acquaintance until now.'" (Part 7)

  • Unnamed story ([Iron Chef – Round Robin – Free For All] Time Loops), by Wraith (part 18): "Daria gestured. Against one wall was a monstrosity of pipes, pressure chambers, tubing, valves and nozzles. Jane blinked. 'I didn't know you were taking up modern art.'"

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria Fan-Fic Should Have: No longer in the 1%), by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "AUSTIN - Backed by a costumed paramilitary armed with home-made weaponry, the gang leader Daria Morgendorffer has toppled police stations and government buildings across Highland County, Texas. The National Guard is mobilising to..."
