Love Her or She'll Sue!

Helen's happy to announce that it's Love Litigating Lawyers Day, although I'm not sure how many people will be celebrating that one. Maybe Jake, if Helen can squeeze him into her busy schedule.

Also, Daria and Jane made a guest appearance in the online comic strip "The New Adventures of Bobbin" on this day in 2001. It's good to see that those two have reached the point where the Tom thing is actually kind of funny. Maybe.

Fanfic Update!

  • A classic case of collapse and rebirth, by bhut (COMPLETE!): "Life is not a smooth flow like the river, nor it is straightforwardly comprehensive like an ABC book.

  • Clothes Make the Crush (Iron Chef challenge secret admirer), by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "'I think that's a great idea, Quinn.' I granted.

  • Daria Nova (Daria daughter of ? Iron Chef challenge), by Wraith (COMPLETE!): "Daria kept a careful eye on her surroundings as she headed home. They lived in one of the nicer areas of the Scrapyard, so she shouldn't need to use any of the weapons she had secreted about her person, but better to be safe."

  • Don't Feed It After Midnight, by Anguirus1955 (parts 1 - 3): "It was a few weeks before Christmas, and Jake Morgendorffer had gone up to New York for a brief consulting job for a client who had begun setting up a new business on Manhattan Island.

  • The Goth, the Witch, and the Perky, by 11tee (part 2): "'Mr. and Mrs. Morgendorffer?' The doctor looked at the two adults standing on opposite sides of the waiting room. There was a teenager with thick-framed glasses sitting on a bench a few yards away, his eyes shifting from one adult to another."

  • Lies of Life, by Princess_Pasta (part 11): "Trent pulled up in front of the modest two-story house, parking his car in the driveway behind Daria's. He was a ball of nerves, anxiety eating away at him ever since Monique asked him for this favor."

  • Quinn's Code 14: Wedding Trouble, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 2): "It was uncomfortable. Daria figited. It was just as she had feared. The dress was ill fitted and to make it more infuriating, the seamstress was continually pricking her with a pin."
