Daytona 500, which is taking place later today. You can talk about dirt and grease and broken nails, but that's about the happiest I have ever seen Stacy so let's not ruin it for her.
Today is also the anniversary of the episode "Arts 'N Crass," which aired on this day in 1998. It was preceded by the Daria Day Marathon, and if you like fourth-wall breaking and metahumor then this will totally be totally your jam.
- Daria Ravenclaw: The Year of the Owl, by Meester_Lee (part 28): "One class had Daria worried: Potions. Potions had acquired the reputation as being one of the toughest classes at Hogwarts: the professor wasn’t just strict, but also extremely sarcastic and demanding and was reputed to favor Slytherin, the House he headed."
- Daria's Great Adventure, by dmsfanman (part 35): "Tom and Darren were back to looking at each other through the windshields of their respective rovers. Tom reflected on how being a pioneer on the infinite frontier of space seemed to involve a tremendous amount of waiting and boredom."
- Everything to Fear But Camp Itself, by Lady Evil (part 7): "'Well, here we are, Camp Grizzly.' said Bruno. 'How ya feeling, Kina?'"
- A family Secret, by Rémi (COMPLETE!): "« Can I come in ? » Quinn was surprised both by Daria’s hesitant demeanour and her embarassed question."
- On the curb (Random Pairing Challenge 2020), by sarcasticsponge (COMPLETE!): "One early morning in Lawndale saw one Tom Sloan driving slowly around town contemplating about his life several months after Daria broke up with him."
- T.A.Ts from a Magazine (Random Pairing Challenge 2020), by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "'Ohhh,' Brittany Taylor cooed appreciatively as she studied the document enshrined on the wall. 'Great Prairie State University! I’m going there you know! Or maybe you don’t? But Ms. Manson, this says you, philosophiae doctoris uh, do philosophy. I thought you were a psychologist.'"
- Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: The Saga Goes On), by JPAGC (COMPLETE!): "It was a tuesday morning in Lawndale. In the Morgendorffer household, like countless homes across the US, this meant that its occupants prepared for yet another working day."
