Daria's getting ready to celebrate the anniversary of the publication of the novel Animal Farm on this day in 1945 by--what else?--reading Animal Farm. It'd be kind of silly to read anything else, wouldn't it?
Today is also the anniversary of one of Daria's earliest features in 1997, in The Chicago Tribune. Abby Terkuhle said, "What separates 'Beavis and Butt-head' from 'Daria' is a lot of brain cells," and I think that's about the truest thing I ever heard.
- An American Band, by ladyevil (part 3): "Inside the Tank, they were still waiting out the traffic when Trent suddenly realized 'I shouldn’t have eaten all that salad.'"
- Obligatory Beach Episode, by wheresthequeef (COMPLETE!): "Already sweating as they ascend the sandy boardwalk onto the beach, Daria grimaces under the blazing, mid-summer sun."
- Hurricane Daria (The Carbones), by wilddogjj (part 1): "A not-fully-awake Jim entered the kitchen in his bathrobe and turned on the coffee maker. As he walked towards the table to wait for his coffee to brew the door to the laundry room opened and Daria emerged."
- Ozark Odyssey (Linn's short stories (or ficlets, drabbles...)), by linnofthewoods (parts 7 and 8): "After a day of hiking, one would expect Rose to be able to get a very good night's sleep. But for whatever reason, she just couldn't. Even Jane had managed to fall asleep before her." (Part 8)
