International Children's Book Day, but I don't think that's the kind of book the holiday creators had in mind. If you'd like to read a children's book today, why not pair it with a sandwich for National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day? Daria will probably pass on that one, since her last experience with peanut butter sandwiches didn't go so well.
Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Art Burn," which aired on this day in 2001. Jane almost filmed a Waterworld post-apocalyptic video, almost lost her passion for painting, and almost uncovered a forger's plot. So many lost opportunities!
- The Date, by elainefr (part 6): "'How was the Country Club?' Jane asked of her best friend once they'd each settled into the comfortable positions in her room, doing what they loved to do."
- From Both Sides, by mailorderannie (COMPLETE!): "Daria crossed her arms. 'So where did you hide it?' 'Huh?' Michael's eyes lost some focus."
- I May Go Pop, by tafka (parts 1 - 3): "Daria looked at her schedule and sighed. Modern History tute again. She wouldn't have minded if the research assistant wasn't such a misogynist jerk who seemed to take great pleasure in baiting her into ridiculous arguments." (Part 2) (Part 3)
- The Lost Girl, by Hammyham (part 2): "The one good thing about being back at Lawndale; Jane is back too. Her room had been turned into a new studio for her Mom (the kiln set on fire in the basement), but luckily Trent had vacated his room a couple of years prior so she could have his."
- A.R.C CHAPTER 9 Babysitting, by ST91 (part 1): "In Lawndale and its surroundings there are many restaurants and clubs. For some of them it's a miracle to still be open despite the health inspector, but others offer the highest level of services."
- Shadows of a Timeless Song, by Dennis (part 14): "A thousand questions, many of them rude, boiled up in Daria's mind, but for once, she held them in. With a puzzled shrug, she walked through the door, which Ron closed and locked behind them."
