Bet You Anything This Holiday was Invented by Greeting Card Companies!

Happy Card Reading Day! You can bask in the glow of your admirers like Quinn, or spend the day at the drugstore reading greeting cards to your date a la Daria and Tom. Whatever you do, have fun!

Fanfic Update!
  • All the Rage (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "Quinn launched herself from her bedstead to find herself in a boundless, empty land. The gray void stretched into the distance, becoming one with the textureless ground."

  • The Amazing Adventures of Captain Invincible!, by Erin M. (part 4): "'I'm going out,' Spike said quietly, not turning around. 'I don't know when I'll be back. If you want to keep on reading, go ahead.' He opened the door and walked out of the library. He paused on the doorstep and looked back at Twilight, anger and betrayal still evident on his face. 'You reached the last story, anyway,' he finished."

  • Black Cloaks of Lawndale, by Waylander (part 9): "Jane Lane was hungry, sweaty and tired. Cleaning up after the tentacled monster was a thankless job. I wish that cleaning spell was s bit more powerful."

  • The Dale of Lawn, by Wassersauefer (interlude): "A lot of time people have asked themselves, how the massive armies of the Dale could have been fed by the civilians of the land. The answer was quite simple: They weren't, as there was no civilian population, thus the armies fed themselves."

  • Daria and Co. (Are Forced To) Read 'My Immortal', by Shiva (part 4): "The room had plush carpet, a roaring fire in a fireplace, and a series of queen sized beds. Mack counted them up first and said, 'Uh, there aren't enough beds for everyone to have their own.' 'What?!' Sandi snapped in outrage. Jodie just shrugged and said, 'We'll all have to pair up.'"

  • Daria and Jane: On Cow Pies (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "'Uh Jane?' Daria muttered while poking her friend in the belly to get her attention."

  • Dylan, by J-D (part 18c): "They drove to the flea market in the same van they’d used for the abortive expedition to Alternapalooza, Mystik Spiral’s drummer’s van, the one they called ‘The Tank’. Dylan found his second ride in it a little less awkward and uncomfortable than the first one; after all, things could hardly have gone worse."

  • Freewheelin', by peetz5050 (parts 13 - 15): "‘Jane? Did something...’ ‘Look I don’t wanna talk about it right now, OK? It’s not your fault... I’m not blaming you or anything so just drop it OK?’ Jane suddenly stood up and walked away stiffly, leaving her food behind. Daria and Andrea looked at each other but neither one had a clue what that had been about." (Part 14) (Part 15)

  • Heroes and Villains Part Two: Queen Sandi, by Reven384 (COMPLETE!): "Daria looked on from the shadows. It was like a warzone. She was horrified at the bodies and the sheer amount of death that surrounded the place. Her mind raced as she pulled out a gun from her holster."

Jesse's body heat provided enough warmth for her not to need a blanket."

  • My New Nemesis, by Brain Camper (part 3): "Helen: Could you feed your sister please? Daria: Tell Quinn to get her own snacks! Helen: You know what I mean!"

  • Nice Guy Mack, by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "'Hey, Mack Daddy!' Goddamn retard. How many times – how many – had he told him? He’d have to beat the useless cretin to get it into his head. Maybe he would."

  • Of Hearts and Minds Book II: Present, by mac (part 2): "'Daria? Are you okay?'

  • Unnamed story (I have no idea what I'm writing), by Payul (COMPLETE!): "The Tall one turn his head to her, even in his eyeless, expresionless mannequin-like face, she felt his penetrant stare piercing her eyes.
