Jake's all ready to paint a masterpiece in honor of Vincent van Gogh's birth on this day in 1853, but I think cutting off his ear was a step too far. If nothing else, how will he hear Daria's critique of his artwork?
Then again, Daria might be too busy re-reading Black Beauty to celebrate the anniversary of Anna Sewell's birth on this day in 1820. We know it's one of her childhood favorites, but it may also come with memories of her parents arguing. So maybe she'd better pick something else.
- Analyze Jim (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Jim was back for another therapy session. He sat in the patient's chair hanging his head in shame over this. He was ashamed of the fact that he even needed help in the first place." (Part 3)
- And So The American Experiment Begins, by Lady Evil (parts 2 and 3): "In the Morgendorffer garage, Quinn watched from the doorway as Alfred sanded and blew on a piece of wood. She tried not to faint with ecstasy at the sight." (Part 3)
- Common Ground (Linn's short stories (or ficlets, drabbles...)), by Linnofthewoods (part 2): "The following late afternoon, Daria emerged from the subway car holding her breath with a disgusted expression; she'd been stuck sitting next to a man who smelled so bad that she wondered if his stench could peel paint off of walls."
- Daria on the Trail (Daria Landing In Another Fanfiction: An Experiment), by Meester_Lee (part 2): "Despite Daria’s suspicions and the temptation to give in to panic, she knew that observation and keeping a clear head were the keys to survival."
- Tommy The Terrible (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (parts 1 and 2): "Both Quinn and Jim are dressed in their Sunday best on account of it being Sunday morning. Tommy, Timmy and Teddy are wearing suits and ties. None of the kids are thrilled to dress like this." (Part 2)
- Winter Is Coming, by Meester_Lee (part 28): "Breeze hit the REWIND and PLAY buttons to listen to her daughter’s message again."
