Pride, Prejudice, and Pollock

Daria and Quinn are (most likely) portraying Elizabeth and Jane Bennett in honor of the anniversary of Pride and Prejudice being published on this day in 1813. I can definitely see parallels between Daria and Elizabeth's wit and sarcasm, but Quinn as kind and gentle Jane? That's a little trickier.

One hundred and five years ago today, Jackson Pollock was born. Without that abstract painter, Jane would have had no inspiration at all for her school dance in "Daria Dance Party." Oh, and we would have lost out on a lot of artwork, too.

Finally, this marks the DFB2's 3,000th blog post! Woo hoo!

Fanfic Update!
  • The Appointment, by elainefr (part 5): "Helen watched the brother and sister as they talked. Both showed remarkable strength, in her opinion. There were no outbursts of woefulness, nor was there the flooding of tears as she thought that there might be."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: No Country For Unpleasant Old Men, by Meester_Lee (parts 4c and 4d): "Arcturus was relieved to let Iago lead him away from the company of the Faux-Ceciley. 'I see you were busy making friends, Sir,' said Iago." (Part 4d)

  • Moonstruck, by NightGoblyn (part 17): "Eventually all six girls were standing on the castle side of the river, except for Jodie who was sitting on a large, flat rock. Ahead of them a small town lay in ruins, the buildings empty shells that had mostly collapsed under the weight of time and water."

  • A.R.C Chapter 8 Sighted by a condor, by ST91 (part 6): "'Seriously Jane, you look amazing! How did you do it?' asked Daria. 'It was easy, I just had to take some clothes from my sisters' wardrobe and apply some makeup.' answered Jane."

  • This is my stop, by Honey-On-Toast (parts 3 - 5): "Jane escorted Daria home, offering to carry the journal this time. It wasn't that late, but the street was dead silent, so much that the only distinct noise was from their clopping boots on the pavement." (Part 4) (Part 5)
