A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away I used to write Daria fanfiction. There’s some stuff that I would love to finish some day. And there’s some stuff that I wonder why I even wrote. (No, I’m not linking to any of that stuff.)
I wrote some cross over stuff with Daria in the Star Trek universe. I got a chuckle with most of it. I probably should go over to the Daria Wiki and add it in there.
Some of it was fairly simple (and short) stuff where I made fun of the salt shakers as medical instruments. And another where I just copy and pasted over the script for Star Trek 3. (OK, I’ll admit it. Did anyone notice I was poking fun at the second season episode Arts ‘N Crass? There’s only one line in there to point it out but you should catch it if you pay attention.)
Anyway one of my favorite works was where Jane Lane does the Kobayashi Maru sim from Star Fleet Academy. I find myself writing Jane to be a bit more humorous than she was in the show. Some folks liked it. Some didn’t.
I’ve been reading Girls With Slingshotswebcomic created by Danielle Corsetto for quite some time now. (I’ll be adding it to the links list shortly after I finish writing this.) I have to admit that I find a very striking resemblance between Daria and Clarice. Besides them looking a like with their long red hair and glasses, they’re both quiet and have a love of books. Granted Clarice has an interesting weekend job that may fit Jane more but it’s still close enough to make me wonder. (edit: Danielle talks about the origin of Clarice along with the first book released for this strip here.)
I’m trying to deside on what to do with the daria.be domain. I have the Daria videos on a DVD somewhere. I’m tempted to turn it into a site running them although that may not go over well with MTV nor my hosts.
Been reading an interesting piece of Daria Fanfiction today. It’s called Apocalyptic Daria. Daria and Jane, having skipped town and gone on a “joyride” with Daria’s mother’s car (Hmm, could have sworn that she had the SUV…) survive a nuclear attack and have to make their way back to Lawndale to their families. Needless to say, it;s not an easy trip. There’s language and, while not graphic, some adult topics. It’s not that long of a read though. There’s Part 1: We Are So Screwed as well as Part 2: There’s No Place Like Someone Else’s Home. I hope we’ll see Part 3 shortly.
I wrote a couple years ago about the Daria fanfiction work Sarcasm at 1600. I noticed this morning that Mike Xeno has written a few new chapters. The latest is here. You may want to start over from the beginning to refresh your memory. Again, I hope we’ll see more soon.
Breakfast was cool. Had eggs, bacon, and biscuits. I think I was the only non-church person there so i had to introduce myself a number of times but I didn’t mind. I walk by the church twice every day when I head over to UNCC. Didn’t get any pictures as my batteries died with the other breakfast this morning under the bridge.
I finally got a chance to look over the most read posts for January. I probably should do some sort of Top Post widget in the sidebar. (edit: Done now.)
