Lost Boys and Lost Socks

Today is the anniversary of Peter Pan playwright James Barrie's birth on this day in 1860, and Mr. O'Neill is just a little too happy about it. I have to admit, though, that this job seems a much better fit for Mr. O'Neill than teacher. For one thing, he never has to grow up. For another, he spends a lot of time suspended from the ceiling where it's harder to invade people's personal space.

This is also Lost Sock Memorial Day, so if you've lost any socks to the make-out/laundry room then feel free to mourn them. Also, check with Daria and Jane in case they've seen them.

Fanfic Update!
  • An Annoying Paradise, by Resop (part 8): "'You seem happy today.' The bus to the subway station hits a bump causing Daria and Jane to bounce slightly."

  • The Coming Of The Cynic (Quinn, Season 4), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "We see Jake and Helen seated with Emma, Rita and a five year old Erin. Emma's hair is just starting to go gray at this point so we see that her original hair color is the same shade of red as Quinn's. Rita looks the same as in 'Aunt Nauseum', only twenty years younger. Erin is in a pink dress with pig tails." (Part 3)

  • Cuckoos On Infinite Earths, by Charles RB (parts 8 - 12): "When Daria had been sent to the self-esteem class, she'd expected nothing but metaphorical farts. Instead she'd found Jane (in the class for six goes out of boredom) and Janice, who'd not only been borderline acceptable to hang out with but had opened her eyes to the glorious things about self-esteem class: using it to make her family suffer and using it to make O'Neill suffer." (Part 9) (Part 10) (Part 11) (Part 12)

  • Daria Ravenclaw: The Highland Years, by Meester_Lee (part 40): "The Morgendorffers arrived in Lawndale after sunset. They'd left US highway 15 at Emmitsburg and drove southeast on Maryland highway 140, Jake vocally and Helen silently hoping that they were still on the road to Lawndale and hadn't managed to overshoot their destination and would arrive at some dead end by Chesapeake Bay."

  • Greater Love, by arandomshipper (part 6): "Jane seemed to mirror the dead feeling that defined Quinn ever since waking from her coma when she first opened the door, but when she saw who it was, there was an instant transformation."

  • It Happened Another Nut (Iron Chef: The Lawndale High School Prom), by Smijey (COMPLETE!): "Jodie tore open the envelope. 'Lawndale High, give it up for your Prom King and Queen, Kevin Thompson and... Daria Morgendorffer?'"

  • Second Chance for Love, by David Falkayn (part 12): "As the rhythmic sounds of Dave Brubeck and his band playing 'Take Five' resounded through the Morgendorffer living room, Elizaveta, lying down on the couch with her head on her girlfriend Angie's lap, sighed contentedly as the two girls enjoyed the night alone at the Morgendorffer house."

  • That Summer, by Princess_Pasta (parts 3 - 5): "The last place Stacy wants to be is cooped up in the car with her parents. She stares out the window as her Dad's Honda breezes down the highway, thinking about why Garrett has suddenly decided to visit." (Part 4) (Part 5)

  • Unnamed story (LLH Short Entries #2), by Roentgen (part 121): "'I really can't stand this,' Karen said. 'I think you look wonderful,' Fran said. Karen wore a lightweight blue prom dress that laced up in the back with a princess-seamed bodice and shoulder straps. 'I look ridiculous,' she said."
