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!
- 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.'"
- Flames, by atiyatortilla (part 4): "There was no greater feeling than breaking in a new pair of shoes and Tom was taking full advantage of the first official week of his summer break."
- The Past in the Present (Linn's short stories), by Linnofthewoods (part 4): "Amanda, Trent, and Jane settled into a booth at Saffron, a favorite Indian restaurant of theirs. It smelled wonderfully fragrant in there, and the lighting was warm and comforting."
- 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.'"
