Jake Likes This!

Jake's just thrilled to find out that someone accepted his friend request on Social Media Day! I really don't think I want to know what Jake would be like on social media, though. He'd be the guy forwarding all of the debunked urban legends and spamming everyone with quiz results, wouldn't he? For extra fun, check out this (still occasionally active) Iron Chef thread from years back on what various Daria episodes would have been like if they'd played out on social media! There's still room for more episodes, too...hint, hint....

Today is also the anniversary of the episode "The Big House," which aired on this day in 1997. So many gems in that one: DeMartino's manic exercise sequence, Daria torturing her parents with Scrabble, the whole thing with the harmonica? (chef's kiss)

Fanfic Update!
  • Adventures in Brat-sitting (Linn's short stories (or ficlets, drabbles...)), by Linnofthewoods (part 1): "'EEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKK!!!!' The scream of a maiden could be heard all throughout the village."

  • Born on the Fourth of July, by Lady Evil (part 5): "'Absolutely disgusting.' Daria said, looking at her reflection in the mirror."

  • Old School Blues, by welltemperedclavier (COMPLETE!): "Jane Lane sometimes wondered just how much of the dust in the air came from irradiated human bones."

  • Pinch Sitter 2 (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Quinn and Jim were back from the club with energy to spare. As such, the entire floor could hear the passionate lovemaking going on in their hotel room."
