Pants...In...Space!


Kevin's ready to blast off on a galactic adventure on National Space Day, and I can't think of a more deserving candidate. Look, I'm not going to tell him if you won't.

I'm hoping he's fully dressed in that cannon, though, because today is also National No Pants Day and I really wouldn't put it past him. Someone tell Jake not to celebrate this holiday while singing songs in front of his bedroom window.

Holy Daria on a Bike!


Daria's got the right idea, not only because she's on a bike for Bike to School Day but also because she opted for pants instead of a skirt while riding that bike. I mean, you never know when Upchuck might be lurking, you know?

This is also Cinco de Mayo, a Mexican holiday celebrated widely by Americans, many of whom don't know anything about the holiday aside from the drinking involved. You just know that Kevin's super into this one.

Fanfic Update!

  • The Past in the Present (Linn's short stories), by Linnofthewoods (COMPLETE!): "Trent and Jane woke up uncharacteristically early the next morning (before ten, anyway)." (Epilogue)

  • Young Americans, by Lady Evil (part 6): "Harriet tried to look dry eyed when she went up to Daria. 'Daria, I need to talk to you alone a moment.' She said, leading her away from the group."

Who Ya Gonna Call? Not Them!


The boys are ready to take on any malicious spirits that show up for National Paranormal Day, but I really don't think this is the ideal team. I mean, Mack is the only one even remotely competent. That said, I would read the heck out of this fanfic, wouldn't you?

Today is also the anniversary of Daria's minor cameo in the comic strip Luann in 1999. A cartoon in a cartoon? I don't think my brain can handle such a thing!

Trent Should Write Him a Jingle to Cheer Him Up!


Although I hate to ruin Happy Herb's happy mood, I should point out that while today is Herb Day, the herbs in question are of the planted variety, not the shady car salesman type. Sorry, Herb!

Today is also Free Comic Book Day, and I'm sure Kevin will be lining up to get his copy of Ratboy! I know we have a handful of comic book enthusiasts in our fandom, so enjoy!

Fanfic Update!
  • Call Of The Mild (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (part 1): "Quinn, Daria, Jim, Tommy and Teddy are seated in the audience. Timmy is notably absent. Quinn has a proud smile on her face."

  • The Cantons of Vivec ( General "Daria in Morrowind" Thread), by welltemperedclavier (COMPLETE!): "Contiminus Merro, first Imperial to visit Vivec City and come back to write about it, described the place as '... a city of shrines and saints that lies within hollow mountains rising from the churning sea, built by the living god Vivec as a home for his followers.'"

  • Daria on the Trail (Daria Landing In Another Fanfiction: An Experiment), by Meester_Lee (part 4): "The Orricks laughed. 'You know, you’re the first Yankee we’ve met on the Trail who knows about such things. Yes, we will grant you Guest Right.'"

  • Sleeping With The Frenemy (The Carbones), by WildDogJJ (COMPLETE!): "Jim's angry because Daria's new boyfriend, Rocco, is a longtime enemy of his. Not helping matters is the fact that Rocco's so manipulative as to actually have Daria thinking he's a great guy."

  • Young Americans, by Lady Evil (part 5): "'I’m telling you, sweetie.' Silvia said to Daria. 'You have got to try an authentic Sicilian pizza one of these days. A true sfincione has a fluffy crust and is covered in fresh tomato sauce and both toma and caciocavallo cheeses. When you have had a slice of sfincione, then you can say you’ve had pizza.'"
