Quinn Will Make a Dainty Viking Helmet for Her Head and Sing

On this day in 1904, Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly premiered in Milan. Almost one hundred years later, it premiered in the automotive department at Payday. Or so DeMartino claims, anyway.

Today is also the anniversary of the original airing of both the musical episode "Daria!" in 1999 and Sarcastathon 3000 in 2001. What a day for singing, huh?

Fanfic Update!
  • The Big Truth (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by Charles RB (COMPLETE!): "'You wished to see me, Miss Morgendorffer?' Li sounded like she'd rather be having root canal work done."

  • Bonding Over Bad Art, by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "To get over his breakup blues, Tom Sloane decided that he needed to indulge in what he did best. Snark the hell out of something to validate his worth as a human being." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • The Dale of Lawn, by Wassersauefer (part 11): "Theodore, called Ted by his parents once before he had killed them, watched the scene only a few miles outside his keep with keen interest. What a jolly, amusing sight it was. He had of course known of the presence of the enemy cavalry long before they had come into visual range, his flying scouts had noticed them easily."

  • Dylan, by J-D (part 18b): "'Can I spend the night at Rod's?' — 'You could spend some time with our friends. Kris is.' Dylan had seen Ellen Breger and knew what interested Kris, but he decided to leave that subject alone."

  • Heroes and Villains Part Two: Queen Sandi, by Reven384 (part 2): "'Touch that guy,' Quinn said. 'But he'll die,' Stacy said. Quinn's eyes blared into hers and what she saw in them frightened her. She touched the guy's forehead."

  • I'm Burning Up!, by PrecambrianStudios (part 1): "'So, when are you going to tell me where we're going?' Daria inquired to Jane, who like her bounced along with the rickety Tank 2, driven by Trent."

  • Life's Little Worries (chapter 1), by oni (part 1): "With the idea of the intruder possibly caring a gun entering Angier's mind, he bent down and slightly crept towards the desk instead of announcing his presence right there and going on the attack."

  • Of Hearts and Minds Book II: Present, by mac (part 1): "Daria entered the kitchen already dressed for school. Her hair was down, as usual if she wasn't practicing acrobatics or Karate, and she had upgraded her glasses to have no frame on the bottoms. Her prescription was too much for no rims at all, and Daria hated the thought of contacts. She was wearing black cargo capris, an orange t-shirt, and a green hoodie."

  • Old Married Valentines, by RLobinske (COMPLETE!): "Michael chuckled and said, 'Hold on, I have a cunning plan.' Daria shook her head, but smirked. 'A cunning plan? Should I be worried?'"

  • Poseurs (Iron Chef: Random Pairing Challenge!), by peetz5050 (COMPLETE!): "So Joey worked for a living. That was a new and daunting experience for him but he stuck with it. He had no qualifications, experience or skills so by day he sold nuts in a stupid hat for It's A Nutty Nutty Nutty Nutty World (SMILE) and by night he bussed tabes and swept up in bars and it STILL wasn't enough! He forensically examined the small ads in all of the local papers every night, there had to be something... wait a second..."

  • Sandi's Dirty Secret (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "Once Sandi had her curtains shut, her door locked, and the latest (and most fashionable) pop music playing as white noise did she feel safe."

  • Should Not Be, by peetz5050 (COMPLETE!): "A couple of hundred yards ahead of her she saw three boys come up to Quinn Morgendorffer and surround her. They seemed to be talking to her but she was too far away to hear anything. Darian had stopped nearby. She saw one of the trio, the black haired one, walk over to him and shove him back."

  • The Summer Back, by Shiva (part 3): "As Jamie watched her walk to the front door, part of him wished that he had kissed her. 'It's too soon.' he reminded himself before driving away. Not realizing that Daria's train of thought was on a similar track."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: Random Pairing Challenge!), by Reven384 (COMPLETE!): "Monique knew the girl was hitting on her from a distance. Even after she left her group of friends she kept walking. Her walk oozed sexiness and she couldn't help following the girl. She was entranced."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by Jim North (COMPLETE!): "The young woman with the round glasses was staring down at the items the cashier had just rung up. They sat in a plastic sack off to the side of the counter, with only a rudimentary sort of order imposed on the chaos of their jumbled positioning. A long pause followed, the sound of other checkout lanes the only backdrop."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by Ranger Thorne (COMPLETE!): "'Here,' Jane whispered intently, 'this one should fit.' Daria gave the brown robe a sour look as she took it. 'You sure this will work?' she hissed as she slipped it on."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "Daria stared at the computer screen, looking more than a little uncomfortable. Jane's expression was closer to horror than discomfort, and she spoke first, voice barely rising above the sobbing coming from the laptop's speakers."

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): "Daria opened the mailbox to find a large manila envelope. It read on the cover, in simple red lettering, 'Fandom Louse Publishing Press'."

  • The Watcher (Scenes No Daria Fanfic should have: Delightful and Naughty), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "Unnoticed in the audience, a teenage boy in cheap shoes, a grey sweater, and khakis had watched with more than a hint of wistfulness as his two exes participated in their High School graduation ceremony."
