Jodie, Do You Even Have Time to Stalk the Night and Drain the Innocent of Blood?

If there are any would-be slayers who want to celebrate the anniversary of the show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Jodie's a pretty easy target right now. The show premiered on this day in 1997, and not only was Quinn a fan, but it was one of the rare real-world pop culture references on the show.

Not to be outdone, Daria has three episode anniversaries today: "The Invitation" in 1997, "Depth Takes a Holiday" in 1999, and "A Tree Grows in Lawndale" in 2000. Teenagers going to parties and supernatural elements? Why, it's practically a Buffy crossover!

  • Day Tripped (Linn's short stories (or ficlets, drabbles...)), by Linnofthewoods (parts 1 and 2): "'...Oh, yeah, everything's great mom.' Rose was on the phone with her mother, Veronika, as she petted her kitten, Trixie." (Part 2)

  • New Americana, by Lady Evil (part 1): "'Seventy-eight bottles of beer on the wall, seventy eight bottles of beer!' Kevin sang as the bus drove to the Mall of the Millennium. 'If one of those bottles should happen to fall, seventy-seven bottles of...'"

  • Straight from the Art (General "Daria in Morrowind" Thread), by welltemperedclavier (COMPLETE!): "Jane blew on her cold-numbed hands and wished she didn’t live so far north."
