Chocolate Lovers, Start Your Engines!

Yes, today is a big day in Chocolate History, as we are reminded by Mrs. Johanssen (this is the correct spelling of her name, by the way). Today is the 195th anniversary of the birth of Henri Nestlé, one of the co-inventors of milk chocolate and the first head of the company that makes so much chocolate. You know what to do to celebrate: eat 195 chocolate anythings. Get going.

Once you are done with that, it is also National S'mores Day. Celebration is mandatory. Do it to it.

Daria-ish stuff to come, eventually.

  • Iron Chef: Daria Is Raven's Apprentice, by Project Pegasus (COMPLETE!): "President Obama would administer a much more humane program designed to cater to the needs of the elderly. He would build specially designed senior facilities, and when those facilities lure the unwary seniors into its clutches, he would launch them all into the sun."
  • Unnamed story, by Pinkminx (Part 1): A restart of an earlier story, from July 1st.
  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: School of Rock), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): Daria bought a cheap electric guitar from a pawn shop and Jane brought a dulcimer. Trent had shown Daria how to play three chords and Jane provided the noise. The proof of Daria's dedication was that all of her fingertips were wrapped with band-aids.
  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: School of Rock), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "Arigh. I da thinyu na tha muccab't rck'n'r, so'm 'ere t'telyebotit. I'ain'ese. Looketmi. Thizizwha y'get frmth ronrol lifstil. Ronrol kingrebya, taikyabyththroat, taikyabyth'art. 'S'imporennd. 'tisbluudielife 'tsef."
  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria Fanfic Should Have: Hump Day), by Greystar (COMPLETE!): Scene: A wasteland in the middle of an unnamed city, In the background are abandoned skyscrapers and piles of compressed trash that dwarf the skyscrapers. In the immediate foreground, a hovering green and black egg-shaped robot and a more primitive looking robot, looking like a rusted cube with treads, look at each other in a manner that denotes curiosity....

How come we haven't seen any fics about Mrs. Johanssen's niece Scarlet?

That's not fair. Why do I have to cut down in order to celebrate? (pouts)

I've started a Daria fanfic, unnamed at the moment (I name them when I'm done), and I was curious where I should post it besides my LJ and my page. The only other Daria site I've run across is Martin Pollard's Outpost Daria. Any suggestions? Feel free to e-mail me at
