A Feisty Barbarian!

Happy birthday to the late Robert E. Howard, creator of the character Conan the Barbarian. Howard, born in 1906, probably had something a little more fearsome than Upchuck in mind.

Fanfic Update!
  • Across Space (Iron Chef: Throughout The Ages), by neonhomer (COMPLETE!): "Daria stood up, straightened her uniform, and spoke. 'Romulan vessel, this is Captain Daria Charles, of the Federation Starship USS Charlestown. You're well into Federation space and you better have a damn good reason for being here.'"

  • The Amazing Adventures of Captain Invincible!, by Erin M. (part 3): "'What were ya readin', anyway?' Applejack asked. 'Musta been pretty interestin'. Some new history o' magic book, or somethin'?' 'No, nothing like that,' Twilight answered. 'It was--' She trailed off as she realized what she was about to say. Applejack noted the change in Twilight's mood. 'Twi? You okay?' she asked."

  • And On That Day it Ended, by thatLONERchick (COMPLETE!): "It had not been a chance meeting. She had come home to visit her parents, perchance see old friends. He had been there waiting for her, perched on the doorstep. His flannel shirt and dark denim pants had thrown her at first, as with his thicker build and very alert eyes. Then he had smiled, and she had seen the boy she had known all those years ago. It was a sweet reunion."

  • As Though She Had Done It All Before..., by Shiva (part 1): "The last thing that Daria saw as she breathed her last was a picture of herself in High School, standing next to Jane in front of her old high school... There was darkness, a brief sense of nothingness, then a flash of white light. Then everything came into focus."

  • Bromwell or Bust, by Smijey (COMPLETE!): "She tore open the envelope, lips moving silently as she read the letter. Finally, it hit home and she sank to her knees, tears leaking from her eyes: She would not be going to Bromwell."

  • A Child of the Acorn, by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "Jake viewed himself in the living room mirror. He exuded a ruddy vanity as he applied the last of the war paint to his cheek and tied the green bandana around his head, fitting perfectly with his camouflage outfit. An amateur Rambo among suburban men, he supposed."

  • Club Crisis (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "The club was jumpin' and the beat was thumpin' and all the attractive young people wearing little were getting funky - except Artie, who shouldn't have really been there - when something changed in the air. Literally."

  • Daria and Jane: On Gun Protests (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "Jane: 'Say Daria, you think these rednecks will figure out that America will never ban guns?'"

  • Daria the Unicorn (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "The Cynical Duo were walking to school as per the script when Jane turned to her bitter friend and asked out of the blue, 'Say Daria, what was the most embarrassing thing you ever did to your parents?'"

  • Fallout Runaway Mirror (Iron Chef: Funhouse Mirror Time (AU Crossovers with Canon)), by Vukodlak (part 1): "They were calling it the crossover. One day you'd be strolling along and you'd run into yourself from an alternate world, time who knew. So far they had calculated the existence of at least 967 alternate realities. The person would come and then after hours, day's maybe weeks return home as if nothing had happened. They called these people The Visitors or AU's"

  • Going Buckwild (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "'We gonna have ourselves a ball too-night!' Daria shouted from the driver's seat. She straightened out her Daisy Dukes, pulled her pigtails taut, and gripped the wheel with flying vigor. This was going to be one hell of a night."

  • Heroes and Villains Part One: The Incident, by Reven384 (part 4): "'Tom this is John Doe it has been taken care of. I will meet you at the agreed meeting spot,' he said. 'Good I will have your reward,” Tom said."

  • How DeMartino and DeFoe Got Together, by Gnome (COMPLETE!): "The small smile on her face at the good deed she was doing for the rest of us slipped from her face as she saw me about to destroy her chimes. She gently lowered the tray onto the table and said, 'good afternoon Anthony,' before she started to walk out of the room. That is when I decided that I was going to be a complete idiot. I jumped off the table and said, 'why did you have to bring in this damn thing?'"

  • Jagged Little Pill (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "Jake scrolled down his inbox. Funny how some new-fangled system comes out with all the junk from the last one, times twenty, he thought."

  • Life is Like T-Rex, by -sam (COMPLETE!): "'"First, I would like thank you all for coming in. Second, I am reminding all of you that this briefing is classified Top Secret, so no running off to our friends at the Prophet. Now with that out of the way, the Auror Office has reason to believe the Death Eater Jason Thomas Harris is going to attempt an attack on the Hogwarts Express when it returns from Hogsmeade.'" (Part 12) (Part 13) (Part 14) (Part 15) (Part 16) (Part 17) (Part 18) (Part 19) (Part 20) (Part 21) (Part 22) (Part 23) (Part 24) (Part 25) (Part 26) (Part 27) (Part 28) (Part 29)

  • Mad Dog V.S.........., by PrecambrianStudios (COMPLETE!): "Millhouse (Mad Dog) Morgendorffer had his prey in his sights: a small horse across the plains."

  • The Market (Iron Chef: Throughout The Ages), by Gnome (COMPLETE!): "She was perusing the wares of a traveling merchant, and James could not take his eyes from her."

  • Reflection In A Bright Shop Window (Iron Chef: Funhouse Mirror Time (AU Crossovers with Canon)), by LongSnakeMoan (COMPLETE!): "Her reflection in the shop window was her, but not her. The woman reflected in the shop window was a few years older, late twenties maybe. Instead of her usual red shirt, black shorts and boots she wore a beautiful fifties sea green dress tightly nipped in at the waist before flowing out wide, a white scarf on her neck and a pair of heels so high Jane had no idea how she was still standing."

  • TDJS CH.4 Boston Baby!, by ST91 (parts 1 and 2): "Helen awoke with a start, sweating and her heart pounding. 'Helen are you okay?' Asked a worried Jake. Helen gasped for a few seconds then said, 'Yeah Jake ... I'm fine. It was just a nightmare.'" (Part 2)

  • Through the Fire and Flames (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "'Well, men,' he started, casually removing cotton balls from his ears, 'that was terrible. And this is coming from someone who forces his guests to listen to "Baby" on an infinite loop.' His voice, while inhumanly deep, retained a crisp tinge of humor in its malice. 'Let me introduce myself. I am Satan. I suppose it seems pretty obvious what I'm going to do next.'"

  • Trents Night Off, by Gnome (COMPLETE!): "So here I am, sprawled out on the couch, the first flick with a bald guy clutching a handgun I found in Lackluster video playing on the screen, a six-pack of watery brown liquid that calls itself beer and a bag of generic chips close at hand. And most important, a pipe full of a subtle blend of Rusty Venture and Purple Joy ready to be lit. That is why I reacted a tad poorly when the door slammed open and the sounds of heavy boots striking the threadbare entryway."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: Funhouse Mirror Time (AU Crossovers with Canon)), by peetz5050 (COMPLETE!): "It was so FRUSTRATING! They were so CLOSE! How dare the committee pull their funding at this crucial moment. They'd be able to work out the bugs in the system soon, she was sure of it! If they'd only let her try a human subject, from inside someone would be able to control..."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "Quinn took a sip of water, and turned to her fellow Fashion Club member.

  • Unnamed story (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "'Lord Voldemort,' she cooed, 'Give me some lovin' with that snake-face of yours!'"

  • Unnamed story (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "The size nine steel toed boot crashed into the face of Dan Hibiki. It had, like many of Daria's attacks in the last few minutes, caught him mid-taunt."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "'You have no idea how long I've been waiting to share these moments with you, Daria,' she said, a weak smile entering her expression. 'Without you, I was just another idiot girl gallivanting all over the countryside. But I'm not. Now that I have you.'"

  • Unnamed story (Scenes no Daria fic should have:Stupid, Silly and Disturbing), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "Jake looked at the scattered metallic devices lining the family driveway. His smile waxed despotic at his creation. Do-it-yourself squirrel traps, he thought. Let's see the little bastards get out of these.."

  • Want, by BrownEyedBagel (COMPLETE!): "I think I may be in love. At least I think that is the term I should be using. I want to be around her as much as I can. I want to hear her voice whenever she speaks. I want to be there whenever she needs a hug or shoulder to cry on. Yes. I believe I am in love with her."

  • We Are One, by PrecambrianStudios (part 14): "I am Quinn and she is mine her body is mine and my own we have shared nothing we have lost everything Lawndale La Cueva Highland Lawndale reborn they appear in front of my eyes in the land of Morpheus and everything is one the one with the scars the weak one the smart one the rebellious one the supportive one we are same and unalike I am a freak I am not unique I am unique I am Daria her face is mine I turned like a coward I am who I am our hearts beat in tandem"
