It's over at last.

Sorry but I'm happy that the holidays are over, now I just have to start worrying about normal stuff.

I posted some updates and hope to get some more done later or tomorrow. I finally figured out what my Steampunk Daria story is going to be about. Of course it won't go steamy until the third part but still it's going to be pretty cool.

Order and Chaos is up to part 16 and Arrival is at part 5

I also did a oneshot for Christmas called Murphy's Christmas. I'm not going to say where but there's this link over to the right.

Did anyone else get a tiny shiver when reading Quinn: Quinndy-Lou Who. Knowing this is part of the prequel to the HD series. It just seems like I got the tiny foreshadowing of Jane/Daria but I can't figure out what seemed to imply that. It really showed off why neither daughter likes Helen much. I was sort of wondering about Amy and Daria's relationship in the HD verse and this answered that with a really loud bang.




Alright, I wasn't going to mention it but I have to. I did the NaNoWriMo and finished it up. (In case you missed that fact.) One of the prizes/awards (whatever) was getting it set up on Createspace with a free proof copy.

So I did. It's up there now but I'll be honest. This is actually the last story I would have intended to publish. Even this kind of publishing.

Also they make the price way to high. If anyone is really bored and has absolutely nothing else to read. I mean nothing, I'm talking you've already reread the boxes of dry goods in your pantry. You can check it out here.

I'm back!

Two weeks without writing was hell but I'm back in action. Takes a bit longer to write something but I managed to get some updates to both Order and Chaos and Arrival posted up on PPMB.

Lots of great stuff being posted by a lot of new people.

Disco316, ninetwelve, Roxanne M, NapalmKracken, Dark Kuno to name a few.

It's great getting all sorts of different takes. I'm the kind of person who like staring at every single facet of a crystal to see what changes. I won't be happy until every single possible variation on the Daria mythos has been explored in detail.


Back to the keyboard.


Hope everyone has/had a good weekend.


PS- Voice software might have come in handy but the text might end up looking like one of the kids TV shows.

Thursday, December 11, 2008

Just checking in.

I'm going even more nuts than I was already. Not being able to type is terrible. I see that several people have been posting some great stuff to PPMB.

Hopefully I'll be back writing after I get to switch over to the smaller bandage this weekend. The one without metal in it.

Sunday, November 30, 2008

Not exactly a public service announcement

I managed to get my little DAYLIGHT and Tales of the Ringbearers blurbs going and had just named my LATIFA story. Then I was called briefly away from the computer and broke two fingers in my left hand. The ring and middle fingers and I'm left handed to boot. There goes typing for awhile.

(I'm currently typing this one handed and I can confirm I am not ambidextrous.)

Going to be a few days off.

I'm sure Doggieboy will fill the gaps with updates to his work.


I realized a little while ago that there was only 31 more days left in 2008. I can't believe how fast this year has seemed to go by.

Didn't manage to get much writing done this weekend. A bit but nothing to post up yet.

So not much to chat about but hopefully I'll get some writing done during the week. I did figure out where I might be heading with the SteamPunk Daria story I'm looking at. Can't tell you yet but it's coming. sooner or later it's coming.

Have a good week everybody and don't let the shoppers get you. I hear they can smell fear from a block away.

One more Holiday down.

Thanksgiving is over. No serious injuries so all an all not a bad holiday.

I finished up Bet and posted more parts to Arrival and Order and Chaos.

There's this great little tale called Welcome Back over on the PPMB that I'm digging just a bit.


Some people are looking and talking about SteamPunk for Daria, the whole concept just screams Daria to me. I can just see Daria in the workers boots and khaki pants with that square lantern on a belt. Smudges of grease on her shirt and face. Oversized wrench as she puts something together. What's funny is I just saw  a SteamPunk movie. The Mutant Chronicles. I didn't even know it was supposed to be SteamPunk until I saw the airship with coal burners.

I'm taking some notes down for both a Daylight and Tales of the Ringbearers story. The Daylight one is going to be set in Desperate Seasons and the Ringbearers tale will take place on world being overrun with Left 4 Dead zombies.

After them I am doing a SteamPunk Daria story dammit. I don't care I need to write one of those.

I'm also looking at an idea for LATIFA. Really sketchy in my head right now but I think it's going to have something to do with Daria, Quinn, Jane and Tom are the reincarnations of aliens born into human form.


Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving.


Oh and now that the holiday is over we can go back to harassing Doggieboy for more of his Apocalyptic Daria stories. Brave New World and Scarlett's Tale.

Release the hounds!

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

One down, forty thousand or so to go.

Look I know it's a tiny thing but it's a biggee for me. I'll just be over here looking unexplainably happy.

I have to say that NaNoWriMo has been one of the cooler things I've done in a while.

I have to go brag to some other people now.


Have a good day.

Sunday, November 23, 2008

I don't have a cake to send.

I hear it's birthday party time over at the Daria Fandom Blog II. I'm sure I just misplaced my invitation somewhere. Well anyway.

Happy Birthday. I was going to look for a picture of a cake or something but that might have meant work.

Oh what the hey.




I did manage to get an a post for Bet up and it's got one more part to go. Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Go check out the Lovestruck Atomic Teenage Invaders From Mars pages. All the cool fanfiction writers are doing it. You want to be cool don't you?


Oh and I just finished up my NaNoWriMo at over 66k. It's been one hell of a ride.

Saturday, November 22, 2008

Real Life is storming the beaches

Managed to get an update to Order and Chaos up and I hope to get one for Bet tomorrow. Damn real life is getting in the way.

Just a second.

Sorry for the delay. A division of what changes are you going to make to your insurance this year were storming the fences. A platoon of Daddy everyone is going to see Twilight took out my command center earlier today.


I'm up to 65k on my NaNoWriMo story and I'm looking forward to Script Frenzy in April. That's a completely new medium for me to try.


I see TAG is gearing up for Lovestruck Atomic Teenage Invaders From Mars.

Only bad thing is I sat down to write something up in this verse and drew a complete blank. Now normally I can come up with something under any circumstances so this is unsettling to say the least. Hopefully some people will throw out some stories and I'll get inspired.


More tomorrow.

Saturday, November 15, 2008

50,000 and beyond!

Sorry but I'm overjoyed. I just wrote 50k words in less than a month and I didn't even have to take a day off work or duct tape any of my kids to a wall.

The 2nd to the 15th. Wow, sorry but that impresses the hell out of myself but that's not really that hard to do.


Anyway I'm going to go bask in the wonder that is me. I do need a new keyboard now. I think I killed this one.

Oh in real news that actually matters.

The Sidhe and RLobinske both just posted stories to PPMB.

Go check out Daylight: Recruitment Day and The Other Side of Time: Unfinished Business.

Unless you're so full of good writing that more great writing just doesn't matter to you anymore.

It's Saturday!

Ok I couldn't come up with anything snappy for a title.

I posted up new parts to Bet and Order and Chaos last night.

Bet actually surprised me, it's the first story where I've made a major plot change to the background on purpose. But I did it and I'm keeping it. Maybe I'll kill someone extra off in another story.

Lots of good stuff being tossed up on PPMB lately. Go read some of it.

Brother Grimace is proving how cruel a person can be by posting tidbits of his not yet posted stories on the Dariawiki. There's something wrong with that.


I'm trying to hit the 50k mark on my namowrimo story and it's been fun. I think I might hit 55 to 60k total before I start going back and trying to add something that resembles descriptive text. It's actually sort of fun. After it's done I might post it somewhere for people to shred into tiny little pieces. But that's the best part.

More later in the weekend. Have fun.

Sunday, November 09, 2008

Once again it's Sunday.

Another weekend goes by and I think I'm only two or three days further behind that I was when it started.

I did manage to get a couple of posts up and I'm up to 25000+ on my NaNoWriMo story New Moon.

Couple of stories active over on PPMB and I have to recommend going over there and reading them. Of course no surprise Doggieboy has a heavy hitter running the bases already. The newest Apocalyptic Daria: Scarlett's Tale is killer.

Remember to check out Order and Chaos and Bet after you're done reading his stuff.

Just for fun I'm going to show off some of my sketches. I've been trying to capture a few scenes and I just can't seem to get them right.

4 3


I'm not saying what characters they were supposed to be because then my shame becomes even greater but they aren't bad enough to blind anyone.

Hope everyone had a good weekend.



Saturday, November 08, 2008


I tossed up more posts on Order and Chaos 8 and Bet 3.


Still working on my NaNoWriMo story. It's going pretty well, you can check the meter to the right and hopefully it's working now.


More tomorrow. I'm going to bed.


Friday, November 07, 2008

Ok so I changed my mind.

It's like this. I went over and read some of the stuff about National Novel Writing Month. It didn't say anything about the stuff being good. So I'm doing it. I signed up and everything. New Moon is at 12,326 words even if the gadget says different. It worked before damn it.


I'm about to post a new part to Chaos and Order and Bet is at part two now.

TAG started a brainstorming thread. Some very useful ideas in there but I would never snatch any of these great ideas that have been so innocently put out there ... mine, get your own.


Doggieboy is melting my brain again with Apocalyptic Daria: Scarlett's tale. Someone go pitchfork him to speed things up a bit.

Well time to write a bit, hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend.



Sunday, November 02, 2008

The end is nigh.

I managed to get a couple of posts up for Order and Chaos and I wrapped up Babysitting.

I have to admit I like the concept of Quinn and Daria having to deal with a child. I might try a story like it with a more canon take on the characters having to deal with the same, Wham, you have a baby. Can't you just see Sandi complaining that Quinn's baby didn't go with her outfit or Jane offering to paint the baby or complaining that Daria never cared about paint fumes before.


Got another story in the works called Bet. It's still at the outline stage but it's going to get at least a three parter.

I started the novel for National Novel Writing Month. At this rate I should be able to get it done in time, of course now that I dared to say that something is going to happen to prevent me from finishing in time. I did through some ... lets just say friends of mine  in it. And it's not fanfiction, this might be a very bad sign.

If you haven't been by PPMB lately then you really need to. Kristen Bealer just wrapped up Blood, sweat  and Cheers and RLobinske is working on John Lane 35. Also Roentgen and Brother Grimace are doing Erebus and some new guys, SoCalledGoodGuy and Disco316 are adding to the pile of good stuff to read.


I tried to do some artwork for TAG of Halloween but I stink way to much so it ended up really bad. I'll try again another time.


Hope everyone had a good weekend. If not don't worry, there's another one coming in just a few days.

Saturday, November 01, 2008

I'm doing it dammit.

That's right, I'm hitting the biggest crossover (somewhat) in fanfiction. Order and Chaos is started.

I'm hoping to write a few parts for it tomorrow and maybe a part for Babysitting.


I'm feeling a little restless and I might try my hand at the National Novel Writing Month. Realistically I'm not going to enter the contest but I am going to try to write a 50 thousand word novel in a month. Once I figure out a concept I'll post info about it here.

Hope everyone had a good time this Halloween.

Trick or Treat II

Has begun.


Now a few words from our sponsor and national icon.


"Great, why is it anybody who throws a vampire or whatever in a story thinks it scary. Let me tell you want I think of that .. ."


Well seeing as she looks really busy at the moment, I think we'll skip that part.

Couple of things going on over at PPMB and TAG is covering all the angles this Halloween.

I wrapped up Ashes and Kisses and posted another part to Babysitting. (And of course the first of my Halloween tales.)


"Not one of them takes place on Halloween yet, you poser."


Don't mind her, she's just a little grumpy at the moment. Something about a shortage of eggs.


"Bite me."


Anyway ... hope everyone has a great Halloween.


"Jerk and it's Happy Halloween!"'

Sunday, October 26, 2008

I feel lazy

I updated Babysitting and Ashes and Kisses and that's it. All weekend and only two posts. I might as well have slept the whole weekend. Ashes and Kisses is going to wrap up in one more part and babysitting has maybe two more to go. Depends on Helen now, I think she's about ready for a change in her life.


Someone correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't it seem like a big step with the Ringbearer and DAYLIGHT events occurring. I still think someone (with more skill than me) needs to do a more 'canon' approach to the shared event idea.

Still working on ideas for Trick or Treat II, all I'll say is I'm a bad person.

I think I've hit the bulk of the stories I wanted to do this year with just a few left behind. So here's something for everyone.


How did your writing goals go this year?



Took a while to post this as Blogger was misbehaving. I was starting to worry.

Thursday, October 23, 2008

Just bored a little bit.

Ok the UK is charging someone for writing Internet porn fanfiction. Ok that's not a problem. Everyone remember I'm a 4'4 600 pound Asian man with really great teeth who lives in France.

Just finished up But Why?  It was a short one.

That leaves Ashes and Kisses and Babysitting as my only active stories at the moment.

Ashes and Kisses has a couple of little events to happen and one big one coming up shortly. Two parts to go.

Babysitting has maybe three parts left. Not sure it really depends on a choice Daria has to make.

Then I have Trick or Treat II. I'm not so sure this one is only going to be three tales this year. It might have one or two more than that.


Oh look, TAG also found a case of a woman being arrested for deleting an online character. I think the defense needs to argue it was  a mercy killing because the guy was such a noob that he took this whole marriage thing in some games, way to serious and hooked up with a nut job but I'll give credit where credit is do, at least it was actually a woman and not a fifty year old guy.

Sunday, October 19, 2008

It can't be Sunday already.

I'll be updating all three of my current stories later tonight and the other updates have continued over on PPMB. Though looking at the updates it appears to be Origins of the Ringbearers and DAYLIGHT stories as the bulk. Kristen Bealer running Blood, Sweat, and Cheers seems to be the only canonical style story running. I'm not sure what to comment about Farmyard Funnies except it's funny.

I think I have a Zero Hour concept for DAYLIGHT that I'm going to try as well as a The Sea Comes In story.


Added Wyatt from End of the Line to the known Ringbearers list on the Dariawiki. He has a serious contribution to the Ringbearer stories I did earlier but that won't be released until part 10.

Saturday, October 18, 2008

Stories, updates oh my.

I've updated Babysitter, Ashes and Kisses, and End of the Line recently.

In much bigger news there has been a flurry of posts and updates over at PPMB. I suggest you quit reading this and go there.


Why are you still reading this?



Started looking at ideas for Trick or Treat II. So that's actually going to come along nicely, I think or hope.

I have to say the Fanfiction has changed a lot since I joined the PPMB. With the Tales of the Ringbearers and DAYLIGHT shared universes plus some regular stories, it's interesting.

I wonder if we could do the same kind of thing staying close to canon as well.  Has that been done before? I don't mean a round robin like Evil Daria but a shared story line with different people writing different days or from different character's perspective.

I haven't seen anything like that but I don't see a reason it wouldn't work.

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Just a quick update or not. Whatever.

I'm about to sit down and go through a few things so I decided to say hi or something.



Anyway. I'm having a bit of trouble find DAYLIGHT so I'm going to quit beating my head against it for a while. It's a great concept and hopefully some more people will write a few stories so I can rip them off. ... I mean become inspired by them.


Started a bit of a goofy story called babysitting. Quinn's got a baby for ten days. Cute little fellow called Xavier.


I'm thinking I might suggest that we need to list the clusters of multiverses. Currently running we have the DAYLIGHT cluster, the Tales of the Ringbearers cluster, the Corps of the Ringbearers cluster and the cluster of normal stories. Might be a good idea to keep them slightly separated. I think some of the DAYLIGHT guys are eyeballing the Corps of the Ringbearers girlfriend and you know it's about to be a fight.


Night all.

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Seeking Protective Custody.

Well I just posted a mess of stories on PPMB.


Ashes and Kisses - A DAYLIGHT story.

I knew it! pt 2

End of the Line Part 5

Mobius Strip Part 7


I'm pretty sure the hitman are coming after this batch. I think I've managed to offend every target demographic known to mankind with at least one of these stories. It's ok though, I have a kevlar vest and the dogs will be outside for a few days. Remember I'm from the South so even though I currently don't own any guns I'm sure the rednecks down the road do and are looking for any dark clothed weapon welding assassins  to practice shooting on.

This DAYLIGHT concept is a good one but I can't see Day One yet. Maybe during the week it'll occur to me. Bother Grimace and Roentgen have both posted Day One stories and they look way cooler than aftermath stories like mine. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact they are way better writers, nah couldn't be.


Still would like to see some more people do Tales of the Ringbearers stories. I like the concept RLobinske is writing about, cluster multiverses. In this cluster and it's thousands, millions of universes A happened. In this cluster B happened. Think about that for a minute. Not only is reality duplicated into infinity but the multiverses as entities themselves are duplicated into infinity. It's mind boggling.


Oh wait I need to pack for my trip into hiding. See you when the crust starts to cool.

Saturday, October 11, 2008

To kill or not kill.

Sorry personal question I guess. Don't panic, I don't know where any of you live. Just a decision I have to make in a story.  About to start another story as soon as I finish this post. It's going to be one of the ones that has been on the burner for awhile. It's going to be one of these three stories. I'm not sure which yet.

1. Daria Arrives.
Daria shows up in Lawndale a year after her family moves there.

2. But Why?
Quinn wants to know why Daria put away her camera.

3. I knew it!
Daria finds out Helen was married briefly to another man and becomes convinced he is her real father.


Kristen Bealer just started a new story and if you haven't read it yet then you're a goof.


Ok I wasn't going to do this but I've been fooling around with Paintshop so here goes yet another of my really bad drawings. Since Brother Grimace is going to skin me for this one, direct all complaints to the nearest hospital. It's bad, so sue me.


Saturday, October 04, 2008

Fiddle broke ....

With respects to Dean Koontz.

That's pretty much how I fell this weekend. Managed to get an update to Mobius done but if it's a little wonky or anything I can blame it on the fever.

Nothing serious mind you but still feeling utterly miserable. Ah well maybe I'll feel better in the morning.

Daria copy

Here's a little something I did on my PC to pass the time while I can't get out of bed. The jacket looks about four sizes to big and there's something terribly wrong with her neck. And I'm pretty sure her glasses are about thirty percent bigger on her left side. Maybe that's why she's so grumpy.

Maybe more to mention tomorrow. Take it easy.

Sunday, September 28, 2008

Sunday boring Sunday

With respects and apologies to Mr. Bono


Another weekend brings forth a wave of updates.

Mobius Strip is on Part 4

Sometimes it Rains is wrapped up at Part 12

One more try, was something I had to inflect on everyone.

Tales of the Ringbearers Journey's Debt is going to wrap up today as well.


We are currently at 24 Tales of the Ringbearers and 2 Origins of the Ringbearers by eight separate writers.


Lots of fresh writers over at PPMB these days. So go give them some love.


TAG is wanting to know what the Ringbearers look like. We need artists.

Sunday, September 21, 2008

SQL ERROR [mysql4 ]

This is not a drill, repeat, this is not  a drill.

Paperpusher's is down, somebody get a medic.


Seems like they're having some server issues over at PPMB but I'm sure they'll have it back on soon.


Tossed up a couple of updates and I got one more Tales of the Ringbearers short ready to post.


I'll just sit here and hit refresh every twenty seconds until the server comes back up.

Saturday, September 20, 2008

The weekend is here again.

I managed to start Mobius Strip and post another part to Journey's Debt now at part 4 and a new Tales of the Ringbearers short (Rules of Engagement). Sometimes it Rains is up to part 11.


Mobius Strip is only going to be a handful of parts but I'm going to have some fun with it.

After that I'm going to go back to some nice and quiet angst or drama.


Maybe more to say tomorrow.

Sunday, September 14, 2008

So other weekend ends.

I managed to get a few posts done.


Sometimes it Rains is at Part 10. The next few parts are going to be a little more action filled.

Two Aunts is all wrapped up. I have no idea where the last bit at the end came from. Must of been the toads.

Tales of the Ringbearers Journey's Debt is on Pt 2. 


I'm already thinking up another short in the Tales of Ringbearers universe. A disgraced former Ringbearer has to find a path to redemption without a Ring. I'll do that one during the week.


My next story is going to be Mobius Strip.  Followed swiftly by either But Why? or Daria Arrives.


I'm really enjoying this picture I did for Journey's Debt so here it is again.

Journey's Debt cover2

Saturday, September 13, 2008

Journey's Debt has begun.

Journey's Debt cover2

Tales of the Ringbearers - Journey's Debt

This story is part of the Tales of the Ringbearers series. The three stories Last Man, Diplomacy and Artifact were the forebears of this tale but it owes debt to the works of Brother Grimace and Doggieboy. If it's bad, that's all me.

Bunch of writers are writing up tales, why haven't you?

Mentioned before that there are a couple of new writers hanging around PPMB, I hope someone remembers to feed them so they stick around.

I'm hoping to write out the last part to Two Aunts tomorrow and maybe even another part to Sometimes it Rains.

PS the font used under the picture is Ringbearer. Do a google seach for it.

Friday, September 12, 2008

Who's Jack anyway?

As in didn't get jack done this week.

I just posted an update to Two Aunts and Sometimes it Rains.

Two Aunts has one more part to go and hopefully I'll get to the action for Jane's new sister in the next part. (Not that kind :) )


I'll be posting the first part to Tales of the Ringbearers Journey's Debt this weekend as well.


TAG's asking for feedback about the web version of Jormungandr.


Couple of new stories over at PPMB so go check them out.


That's it for tonight.

Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Tales of the Ringbearers.

Spent the weekend writing a couple of stories in this world (multiverse). There will be a third one posted sometime this week. Consider these introductions for a larger story I'll be doing next. Reading the first three is going to be need to follow where the next picks up.

Tales of the Ringbearers Journey's Debt. I'm hoping this will go about ten parts or so. The first part is written and now I have to go clean it up a bunch while I start the second part. 

I wanted to go somewhere besides a zombiefic. As much as I love zombies, they aren't going to be the "bad guys" in this one.

Two Aunts is got two more parts, I think. And Sometimes it Rains is about to have some excitement.


Seriously though, I'd love to see a few more people hop in with some Ringbearers stories. I'm drooling over what TAG or NightGoblyn might come up with if they did stories.


Bigger news: The Other Side of TIme: A Father's Legacy has just been posted by Sidhe. CLICK HERE!!

Well time to go to work. Have fun.

Monday, September 01, 2008



Got two stories running now. Two Aunts and Some Times it Rains.

Rayne Lane is going to find out the good times are over for a little while.

Becky Morgendorffer has decided to work for her money while staying with her big brother.


I guess I'm in a new character kind of mood. Not the first time, lets see.

Cleo Patrica Morgendorffer- Daughter of Quinn and Trent

Danielle Todds

William Dorn

Michael Morgendorffer- Son of Helen and Jake.

Samual - Son of Jake by another woman.

And of course Veronica Helen Morgendorffer- daughter of Jake by another woman. Also used a Veronica as Amy's daughter.

Shannon Morgendorffer- daughter of Jane.

Michael Rayne Morgendorffer- Son of Daria and Lurman.

Susan Williams


I might have to do a story that doesn't involve creating a new character.

Friday, August 29, 2008

Jewelry and Other things.

I got this new ring, had to trade some chocolate for it but it's worth it.

Do you think Daria would release a plague that caused everyone to lose their voices then discover she misses hearing them talk?

How about returning from a trip to Africa with samples of a deadly disease?


Sometimes It Rains will be getting an update tomorrow. 

Saturday, August 23, 2008

I think I saw the sun today.

But I'm not sure, it's just been so long.


Any way I wrapped up Starbright. It was fun to play in that world a bit but truthfully I can do without trying to write pop songs. For a good laugh go over to PPMB and check out my sad, sad attempts.


Anyway I started Sometimes It Rains today. This is the Jane gets a sister story I've wanted to do for awhile.

TAG has started a new story and I'm intrigued.


Another story I'm starting is going to be Two Aunts. Amy and Jake's younger sister end up staying with the Morgendorffers that last summer before Daria goes away to school.


Counting down to the one year anniversary posting on the PPMB. Sept 9. (The day I joined.) Just a few days after reading one of the John Lane stories out on


Something to think about,  was Amanda really gone as much as Vincent. She makes far more appearances in the show. (Though once only as a pair of feet.) Even being around to star or be drawn (I never did figure out if that was supposed to be animated or "real life") in the MultiMedia project Jane and Daria did. I'm starting to think she was around but not available for Trent and Jane. Maybe hanging out with her hippie buddies. Not that she was at the house, but out somewhere nearby making art or whatever. Lets be blunt, a pack of wolves could have done a better job raising a family. 

Monday, August 18, 2008


Maybe I should start breaking into song at random moments as the storm goes over us. That would be a real Daria tribute.


Just found out that one of my stories Esteem Roller counts as a novel, cool. Thanks for the info TAG.

I love the Dariawiki.

Just wrapped up a New Life and started Starbright.

I don't know what demon has processed me to do a Jem and Holograms crossover with Daria I don't know. If anyone does please forward name and best banishing spell.  The story isn't hard but the songs are tough.


Well maybe Fay will wipe me off the face of the Earth, if not I should have an update sometime this week.


Here's a question to ponder, assuming the Tom was physically attracted  to Daria. (He was willing to kiss, make out and even have sex with her.) Why did he make the play for Jane first instead of Daria.  Did he flip a coin or what?

Sunday, July 27, 2008

Finally managed to Post something!

Again I blame summer vacation but I did manage to post an update to a new life today.

Things are finally settling down now that summer vacation is almost over. Hopefully I'll be able to spend a bit more time writing anything.


Well enjoy the end of the weekend!

Sunday, July 13, 2008

Summer is truly here.

Has it really been a year already?


Still trying to get some time to do some writing but it getting to be a struggle. I have to admit it's much easier when the kids are in school.

One of the prices of being a single parent, I guess.


Still fighting off a couple of story ideas but I think my next one is going to be a short one dealing with Jane getting a new sister and how she deals with trying to explain her parents to her new younger sister. (Kind of a twist on the Veronica style story.)

After that I'm still undecided. Mostly it depends if on avail time.

I am thinking about doing a story based off Irish Myths. I would love to write Daria getting in an argument with Nuada. And Quinn having Lugh get her a drink would be priceless. "But he said he was The Many Skilled."

Have fun and try to not melt.

Friday, July 04, 2008

Just checking in.

Just wanted to say happy 4th of July to all of us in the USA and I can't remember what it's called but doesn't Argentina or Brazil celebrate their independence day next week. So happy whatever it's called.


I'm slowly getting back into my stories so hopefully I can get something posted this weekend.


Have fun and try not to blow off any important parts.




Yes I'm talking about you .... I still remember last year.

Hello and something like that.

Another week gone by and a little bit of writing done. Started another story. New Life also I'm working on I Have Another Sister?, it's a Veronica style story but with Jane as the big sister.


Someone asked me an interesting question the other day. What kind of writer do I consider myself?

I had to think about that for a while. I couldn't come up with an answer and I think I know why. I DON'T think of myself as a writer. Sure I do some writing and honestly I love it but I'm not a writer. I could say something about not being that good or something else but I think it comes down to self image.  I just don't see myself as a writer, kind of like the smoker that can't quit until they see themselves as a nonsmoker. I just like to do it and that's enough for me.

Just something I wanted to share.


Oh and RLobinske started a new John Lane, 35: Give Me a C!

Ranger Thorne started Long Trek Home

and the almighty TAG is still working on Death Takes a Holliday.

Sunday, May 25, 2008

Avalon is Done.


I wrapped up Infected yesterday and Avalon today.

Doggieboy has finally released the long waited Epilogue 3 to A Little Vacation.


TAG has posted Part 3 to Death Takes a Holliday.


Now you go write something.



And post it!

Sunday, May 18, 2008

Weekend update.

I posted a couple of updates over on the PPMB. Avalon is up to 23 and Infected is up to 4.  I've also posted a bit of backstory on Danielle Todds of the An Overlooked Flaw verse on my various story sites. HERE


I am declaring it the season of Zombie Daria fics. There is currently three active stories on the message board.

'A Little Vacation' by Doggieboy

'D: The Last Cynic' by CDM

'Infected' by me


Undead shipping is the new cool.


I have to mention again that TAG has a new story running.



Tuesday, May 13, 2008


TAG has released a new story. (Death Takes a Holliday) Ranger Thorne has updated Big Jake's Harley-Davidson.


Everyone stay calm, it's only two signs of the end. I'm sure that nothing else will happen.


Stop hoarding.



Stop looting.


Ok you two in the back of the convertible, that's ok.

Saturday, May 10, 2008

Another week down.

I just posted another update to Avalon on PPMB and tossed up Continue on my site. I wasn't really happy with it so I ended it after just a couple of parts. Rita is the devil in it. And I played around with the idea of Jake having a little sister.


I also posted a few scenes from Starting Over that I had written when I was playing with the story. (Before I killed it.)


TAG has apparently joined the collection of people not taking very good care of themselves. Someone call his mother/wife/girlfriend/creditor, anyone who has a vested interest in keeping him alive and tell on him.

Saturday, May 03, 2008

Another weekend that isn't long enough.

I just updated Avalon on PPMB to Part 19.

RLobinske has started Falling into College 62: Run it Up the Mast and Dennis has had a couple of updates for Turnabout Confusion Part II.


In really big news. Doggieboy put up his first epilog for A Little Vacation.


All in all it's been a slow week but not to slow. I would like to offer up something to the Irredeemable Daria characters. Tom, mostly considered harmless except for the whole his entire reason to exist was they wanted Daria to have a boyfriend.

How about the fact he went after one girl before ending it with her friend. If Tom had broken up with Jane before he started making moves on Daria that would be different. But no, he went after his girlfriend's best friend while they were still dating. Here's a question for someone to ponder. If Daria had shot him down would he have broken up with Jane or tried to continue the relationship.

To me that's why Tom is irredeemable and why he has yet to play any real role in my stories. I tend to be very biased against cheaters.

Have a great weekend.

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Sad goodbye.

I posted part 18 to Avalon on the PPMB. Where else duh.


For the title of this blog I offer The Oher Side Of Time: And All That We've Won by The Sidhe. He/she wrapped it up. This tale in both it's parts is incredible to say the least. If you haven't read it then you need to.


Doggieboy's A Little Vacation is closing on it's end with just three epilogs left. I just can't stand the thought of this one ending. sniff sniff. It's such a happy little tale of love and zombies and friendship and zombies.


I am freaking out about only having one story active right now. It's messing with my head.

Friday, April 25, 2008


Not much happening at the moment. I thought I would update my current projects list.

1. Mobius Strip. Daria discovers she has more friends than anyone ever has before while Quinn’s new math obsession really takes her places.
2. Daria Arrives. Daria shows up in Lawndale a year after her family moves there.
3. Of Metal and Men II Continuing the story line of machines taking over the earth.
4. She died. Someone close to Quinn dies and she doesn’t have anyone to talk to about it.
5. I have a sister? Jane has bad news and she isn’t that upset about it.
6. But Why? Quinn wants to know why Daria put away her camera.
The Girl and the Cynic. Quinn passes away and Daria is left to raise her daughter.
8. I knew it! Daria finds out Helen was married briefly to another man and becomes convinced he is her real father.
9. Continue. Daria has to deal with a greedy Rita.
10. Danielle. Just a bit of back story on Danielle Todds.


Also I will be updating EarthFall this weekend and ending the story. I might come back to it at another time but I'm not carrying the story very well in a regular series. I might throw out a few EarthFall oneshots a little later in the year.

That's all folks.


Ok I've wrapped up My Sons and posted another part to Avalon (Part 16)


In real news NightGoblyn wrapped up The Misery Chicks and you have to go read it. This story along with A Little Vacation  by Doggieboy are going to rule the Booties next year, everybody else go home, it's done.


Gouka Ryuu has dealt out a Legion of Lawndale Heroes Minis and LSauchelli has offered up a Lawndale's Finest oneshot. Both are great and maybe it might keep us all from going twitchy on the writers of those worlds while we're waiting for them to update.

Dennis has released another update for Turnabout Confusion.


Is anyone else getting sick of reality inferring with people updating their fics. I mean, c'mon, shouldn't the government offer some form of restitution for all the Daria fans these people are keeping off the streets. But no they would rather give money to velvet pictures of Elvis, he's not even dead yet. So write your congressman or equivalent and demand support for the Daria arts.


It's not any sillier than them spending millions to build a road that doesn't go anywhere.

Sunday, April 20, 2008

Sunday boring Sunday.

Just updated My Sons and Avalon over at PPMB.


DOGGIEBOY UPDATED A LITTLE VACATION with Part 18, you are a bad, bad person if you haven't read this story at least three times. Ok maybe you aren't a bad person but you aren't real bright.

Click here to LIVE

RLobinske update his current John Lane story, 34 Part 3.


Side note, Brother Grimace hinted that there may be a Angst filled RLobinske story out there. That's a must read!

Solaris is putting out a lot of reviews to stories so that's worth a look.

Hopefully everyone will enjoy this last day off before returning to the salt mines tomorrow.

Saturday, April 19, 2008

Just a run of the mill update.

I added two partials to my fic site, these are stories I walked away from. I marked them in Purple for easy finding.


The Sidhe once again proves that the Irish had it right with The Other Side of Time: And All That We've Won. (9)

Last but not least I'm going to comment on something crossada75 said over at PPMB.


The members of Daria fandom are a finite resource that should be intent on maintaining their health if for no other reason than reproduction of new Daria fans. New fans are going to become rarer and rarer as time goes by. This can only be offset by a friendly doorman being there for the stragglers who discover Daria on the web, standing there with an umbrella and a cup of hot cocoa inviting them in from the rain. New blood is out there and they will come but it would be nice to make sure some of the old timers are still around to greet them.

Friday, April 18, 2008

Welcome to the weekend.


I won't be doing much writing this evening. The new season of Doctor Who starts here in the US tonight.


But BlackHole and NightGoblyn both posted updates to PPMB so go read them and pitchfork NightGobyln concerning his Heather/Damsel Chronicles. Then we need to find LSauchelli and chain him to his keyboard after watching all the Daria shows upside down.


Hope everyone has a good start of the weekend.

Thursday, April 17, 2008

A little truth.

I just posted some updates, where else but the PPMB. I have to recommend checking out the Daria Fandom blog II through that handy dandy link to the right. Maybe I'm reading it wrong but it sure seems like TAG has a really important message up today.

Also there is a new Iron Chef by DigiSim and Solaris plans to review some fanfiction. 


Now to discuss something. I'm dyslexic and considered nonfunctional (what that means I'm really not sure).  Basically when most people see a word, they see letters, the parts of the word. For me it's a solid, I'm unable to break words and even sentences down into their parts or structure.  For me the finished product is all there is.

I am lucky enough that my dyslexia only effects output, meaning I can read perfectly and understand what I'm read but I cannot find mistakes even if their obvious.

If you go down that page to a section called Reading and spelling you will see several bullet points that anyone familiar with my stories will recognize right off.

This isn't a cop out, I rather enjoy when some people like Derek and DigiSim for example point out the usually humorous mistakes. (PLEASE Don't you dare stop doing it.) My work needs all the help it can get.

I'm offering up this information as an explanation, I'm not lazy, or uncaring when it comes to editing my work. I just can't see these kinds of mistakes. This also means that I'm completely at the mercy of my word processing program and I'm sure you all know how fickle they are.


Sleep tight because the bed bugs will bite.

Sunday, April 13, 2008

Back to the salt mine.

Another weekend gone and I'm more tired now than I was on Friday. Well I did get some updates done.

Question time. Lets say someone started a story based loosely off some disturbing news reports from a year or so before and then just as they got around to starting it, the same thing happened again. How long should said person wait before posting the story.


Any way Doggieboy updated a story and even if it wasn't A Little Vacation is was good. So go check out The Cynic, The Fashionista and The Jackass Part 13


Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Saturday, April 12, 2008

Updates and updates.

Alright I posted Parts 12 and 13 for Avalon and My Sons over at the PPMB.

But in real news Size does matter Pt 20 and It's Like the Beginning of an Era Part Three are up.

Someone dig up some dirt on NightGoblyn and blackmail him into updating his stories. Even one of them. Maybe someone can talk TAG into interviewing NightGoblyn as part of his new Author Interviews project, sounds like a great way to gather some dirt or something like that.


As strange as it sounds I actually had pizza for lunch yesterday. Probably the first pizza I've had in two years. I just couldn't resist a ham, pepperoni, sausage and bacon pie.

Well that's it for today.

Oh and if someone happens to know where to get a decent viewing copy of Pierce Me ... for off site backup only of course. Let me know. My copy is missing the entire phone call at the start of the show. I'd like to get a compete set. And with the Daria New Years blurb I think I've got about everything.

Wednesday, April 09, 2008

Life in the slow lane.

Posted some updates to My Sons, Avalon and Breed today. Did some reading but all and all I wasted the entire day. I should be ashamed of myself but I'm not oh well.

Since my last post the great and powerful Doggieboy has graced us all with an update to A Little Vacation. Now if we can get Sidhe to throw one out as well it'll be a pretty good week. The only thing that could make it better would be a TAG story. So far we got updates from RLobinske, Brother Grimace, Dennis, LSauchelli, Cypher, BlackHole and a new story from Kristen Bealer. You can't beat a week light that again excepting the mention point.

Well I'm going to go kill some pixels

Have a good night.

Saturday, April 05, 2008

Nap time.

I just posted updates to four stories on PPMB. Now I'm tired.

Breed Pt 2. Hopefully a different take on the vampire saga.

My Sons Part 10. Daria is having fun and Quinn and Susan aren't.

Avalon Part 9. Quinn gets some training and Jane offers to cook.

EarthFall Episode 4 pt 2. A mission to gain needed protoculture.


But in really important news. The following stories have all had updates recently.

Size does matter Pt 19

And All That We've Won 6

The Misery Chicks Part Eighteen

All the King's Horses.


Clearly missing is a new part to A Little Vacation from Doggieboy but I'm sure this is merely an oversight that he better ...  I mean will correct soon. Please. Pretty please with a meatlovers pizza on top.

Wednesday, April 02, 2008

It's a miracle.

I managed to post some updates and it's not even the weekend yet. Next I'll be turning water into Pepsi and fish into steak. Or maybe the other way around. Seafood has gone up in price.


Slow week so we might have to go after a few fanfic writers again. They know who they are. Now we'll need supplies. Rope, chains a few whips and some potato chips among other things.


Have fun and don't forget. If they keep typing you can stop hitting them.

Saturday, March 29, 2008

I did it!

It took all day and almost drove me insane but I finally got around to converting the .mht files on my site to html files. They have been tested in 4 browsers and three OSs so if it doesn't work ... it's you.

I guess that only took about three months of putting off and I only had to edit one in Dreamweaver. I even added Surprises not that anyone would want to read that. Seriously avoid it at all cost. The ending sucks.


Now maybe I can sit down and write something.

Another test don't mind me.

Basicly I added this handy little button to my sig and since it's a toy with no real value I want to play with it. If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page you'll find it there as well. I'll be playing with it for a few days to see if I like it.

Just playing with something.

Friday, March 28, 2008

Another day.

Not much happening but I did manage to post a couple of updates. It seems my joke concerning hunting down and finding certain writers is being hailed as a success. Hey it counts even if it's only one vote.


Well got a busy night ahead.

Saturday, March 22, 2008

Back for a blink.

Been sort of busy lately but things appear to be thinning out a little. I just posted Part 5 to Avalon over on the PPMB and hopefully I'll get My Sons part 6 and a new EarthFall posted tomorrow.

I would list all the great stories over on PPMB right now but it's a big list. Why don't you go check it out. You know you want to. Go on I won't tell anyone. It can be our little secret.


Tomorrow is Easter of yah. The day of bunnies and chocolate or something like that. I'm not planning on getting out of bed until noon. By then the kids should be in choco coma so I'll have the place to my self.

I starting a signup sheet for volunteers to hunt down Brother Grimace and Doggieboy and chain them to their PCs until  they post new parts to their respective stories.


Well happy Easter. Don't let the bunny lay an egg on you.

Sunday, March 16, 2008

Another wasted weekend.


I did manage to post a few story updates and catch up on some of my reading. I tell you some of the stuff out there I'd put up against the crap I keep wasting money on at Books a million any day.

Of course I can't do a post without mentioning A Little Vacation. It's at Part 14 now and Daria is once again safe in Lawndale. But you know most virus have a Mary vector. (A person who is for all intents and purposes immune but carries the illness.) I'm really waiting for the end to this one. Doggieboy rarely disappoints.


Have fun and don't forget that if you don't read PPMB then you'll go insane.

Friday, March 07, 2008

Another Rainy night

I posted part 3 to My Sons earlier so go read it. And while you're at PPMB check out John Lane 33.

I have to tell the truth here. It was a John Lane chapter that led me to PPMB and made me want to post Pause in Life there. So I guess RLobinske can be blamed for anything I post. LoL.


The Misery Chicks is up to Part Twelve and Size does matter is at Pt. 13. These two are worth a trip to PPMB all by themselves.

And All That We've Won Parte the Third is warming up to be as good as it's predecessor. The Sidhe is living up to his (her?) name.

Doggieboy needs to send out another Part to A Little Vacation as I'm going through withdraws.

I will be posting another part to My Sons and EarthFall and hopefully even another to Avalon this weekend.

Sunday, March 02, 2008

Busy day.

I posted the second part to My Sons and I'm still struggling try to get the funny in my head to come out in the story and it's not working to well yet.  I'm just not a visual enough writer I think.

I also posted a teaser for Avalon over at the PPMB.


Size does matter Pt 12 was updated by BlackHole as well. If you haven't read this one yet then you should be tarred and feathered.

Saturday, March 01, 2008

Slow day.

I started My Sons over at PPMB and it's not as funny on paper so to speak as it was in my head. I don't know how big it's going to be but I'm going to stick with it and see how it goes. I mean it can't be as bad as the end of Surprises.


I missed Ranger Thorne starting another Daria/Star Wars crossover. Those Who Can. Check it out.

Next Stories I'm looking at are.

1. Mobius Strip

2. Avalon


I'm thinking about doing up the first part to Avalon and posting it over at PPMB as a teaser and to see if it will float.


Party on Dudes.

Current events.

I just posted EarthFall Episode 3 pt 3 to PPMB.


Doggieboy finally released Part 10 to A Little Vacation. I can have a good weekend at last.


The big news really has to be Not-Quite Forever Girl but thatLONERchick. I highly recommend reading it.


Not much happening at the moment. I'm starting My Sons today.


Have fun and to all those folks over in Orlando. Enjoy.

Thursday, February 28, 2008

Surprises is done.

I just posted the last part to Surprises to PPMB. I have to admit I'm disappointed in the ending. The story turned on me at the end and I lost control. It slammed headfirst into happy ending at 55 mph.

EarthFall will be getting an update sometime tomorrow and I should be start My Sons this weekend.

Lots of great stuff over at the PPMB so head over and read some. I'm still waiting for another Part to A Little Vacation by Doggieboy. At this rate I'm going to have to break the little blue vial to get more zombies.

Gotta go.


Hi to all the people who are heading to Orlando for the Dariacon. If you get lost and see any signs that read Lake County turn around.

Monday, February 25, 2008

I need a vacation.

I haven't had more than five minutes to think let alone write anything. I hate this time of year.

I'm taking a four day weekend to sit around and do nothing for a little while.


The Sidhe is on Parte the Second of And All That We've Won and I'm tapping my fingers waiting for the next part.

I hear the DariaCon in Orlando is happening this weekend.

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Just a quick post.

I just posted updates to Surprises and EarthFall over on PPMB.


In more important news. A Little Vacation is up to Part 9.

Size does Matter is at Pt. 10 and Misery Chicks is on Part Eleven.

Sorry I thought that was cute 9 10 11. Sue me.


Surprises is going to get one more part before I jump into My Sons or Mobius Strip. My Sons is going to be a comedy type and Mobius Strip will be a sci-fi type of story. Taking suggestions on which one I  should go to first.

Wednesday, February 20, 2008


Just checking in since I've haven't done much that could be called productive. I did manage to get all the Daria episodes on my kids PCs. I realized that my copy of Pierce Me is really poor.

Now on to some people who have been working.

Size does matter has been updated by BlackHole.

Darkly Daria Pt 8 is up by LSauchelli.

And All That We've Won has been started by The Sidhe.

RLobinske has updated Falling into College


Now if I can find some blackmail evidence on Brother Grimace and Doggieboy to get them to write faster. I'm dying for another of their respective stories.

Monday, February 18, 2008

Another waste of a weekend.

At least I will be posting updates to EarthFall and Surprises within the hour.

I'm expecting death threats over Part 15 to Surprises.

Brother Grimace sunk to a new low of torture. I was so sure he had posted another chapter to Legion of Lawndale Heroes. But no, it was cruel.

Well that's that for today. I have to copy 13 GB of Daria episodes to my kids new PCs

Sunday, February 17, 2008

Still Here

Haven't updated for a bit. I really don't deal well with being sick. I should have updates for EarthFall and Surprises up tomorrow.

In better news.


Kristen Bealer wrapped up her "I've Waited Here for You." Sometimes it's a good day for fanficton and any day you get to read something that great is good.

Doggieboy posted Part 8 to A Little Vacation. Have I mentioned how much I love this story.

Bother Grimace and SMK both put out some Legion of Lawndale Heroes goodness.


Well time to do some writing. I'm really starting to dislike people who come to work with plague and spread it around.

Thursday, February 14, 2008

Just a another day.

Finally got an update to Surprises 14 up.

Lots of good stuff over on PPMB so get over there and read something.

I've Waited Here for You by Kristen Bealer is breathtaking.

The Misery Chicks

Darkly Daria

Size does matter

A Little Vacation

All of these have been updated and if you aren't reading them then you should.


Hopefully this weekend I'll have some time to stop long enough to type something longer than a blog entry.

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

Not my week

I just can't seem to get the time to do anything this week. Between getting sick and work I haven't even had a chance to catch up on what's happening on the boards.

What's the old saying "It has to get better cause it can't get much worse."

Hopefully I'll get a few minutes to catch up on my reading and then on my writing.

Monday, February 11, 2008


I didn't get squat done this weekend but hopefully some time will come up during the week. I'm about half way through Surprises 14 and the first part to EarthFall Ep 3 is taking shape.


Darkly Daria and A Little Vacation are going strong offering up fun takes on the Daria verse. It funny that I'm already pretty sure of some of my votes for the booties next year. At the very least the bar has been set pretty high.

On another sad note it seems Ahmygoddess from the PPMB passed away. I can't say I knew him but my sincerest  condolences for those that did.


Live each as if it were the last.

Sunday, February 10, 2008

Final say on a petty issue.

This is my last word on the subject.

On February 2, 2008 Cincgreen posted a review of the first part of my story EarthFall.

In the review he took portions of the story and edited them(rewrote) before publishing the review to his site.

My complaint with this was first having to discover the review by a 3rd party source and then discovering the rewritten portions. I posted a response to my blog, his blog, and the PPMB. In this response I requested he remove the rewritten sections from the review. He has acknowledged my request and apparently denied it.

For me this matter was dead and I haven’t mentioned it again in my blog but I have responded to various prompts on the PPMB tread I started.

Now it seems he has put up another message on another blog. This one is addressed to me but he failed to inform me of its existence. (Again I had to find out from a 3rd party.) I do think it’s time to clear up a few things.

Cincgreen did post rewritten portions of my story on his blog. I never made the claim he was trying to take credit for the story and when someone got that impression I corrected that at once. I have no objection to any review but this goes past the line of reviewing to editing in my opinion. I have made no demands for anything. I made a request, without threat or insult. Now I feel insulted.

The second blog post lets me know all I need to know about this person.

Let me offer a review of Cincgreen. By taking liberties with my work you weaken your review in my eyes because anything that distracts from a more important message is a bad thing. Next writing a blog addressed to me and not telling me is rude and to be blunt I have no more time to waste on you. Congratulations you have defeated your own message.

Finally I am emailing this to Cincgreen so there can be no doubt. My request to remove the edited sections from the review stands but feel free to review any work I’ve ever done.


Saturday, February 09, 2008


I managed to get off my lazy butt and post updates to Surprises and EarthFall and they are available to read over at PPMB.

LSauchelli started a new story (Darkly Daria) and killed off Jane and Trent at the very beginning and that's all I'm giving away. This is the story to read while you're waiting for Doggieboy to release more of A Little Vacation.

I'm still working on my converting project and due to a busy schedule might not get it done this weekend. Also I've discovered that trying to read the PPMB on a PSP is enough to drive me insane.


Talk at you later.

Friday, February 08, 2008

Time to make the donuts.

Ok not really but I always wanted an excuse to say that.

A Little Vacation (Part 6) has been posted by Doggieboy and I believe he killed us all. *sniff sniff I love a happy story.

Nature of Nurture Ch2b by Mascifin is up.

I should get a few minutes to day to post the next parts to Surprises and EarthFall but it's still a maybe.

So kick back, catch up on your reading and then write something.

Thursday, February 07, 2008

I could care less but I don't know how.

So rough day at the office.

Haven't gotten anything done but a few people have.

NightGoblyn has updated Misery Chicks and you can hear the theme music kicking in.

LSauchelli updated Crouching Monster, Hidden Magic so I guess we can call off the search party.

If you aren't reading I've Waited Here for You by Kristen Bealer then you aren't as smart as your mother thought you were.

Hopefully I will have time over the next three days to finish up and post a few updates. I also have a file converting project over on my site. I'm going to convert all the .mht files to html  for viewing in different browsers.

So try to not let the rats eat your toes.

Wednesday, February 06, 2008

No updates today.

Sorry been busy. I have Surprises 13 almost done and EarthFall Ep 2 pt 3 is all but done.

I'm having the problem were my next story is inferring with my current ones and Avalon is kicking and screaming for me to do something with it. Next few days are pretty busy so I don't know if I'll get much done before the weekend.

I know I haven't been around for very long but I really miss some of the Iron Chefs from just a few months ago. Some of the best stories and ideas seemed to come out of those. It was nice to see a few of them go up in the last few days. Home Schooled and Out with her eyes were some of the coolest stories to write.

Size does matter is at PT 4 and I'm getting really curious about it. It's making me think and you wouldn't believe how much I enjoy that.

I would kill for another part to A Little Vacation, just tell me who, when where.


Well another day another 14 cents deeper in debt. Maybe I should take up panhandling it would have to pay better than what I'm making now.


Tuesday, February 05, 2008

Another wonderful day in tech support.


Decided to repost my current and upcoming projects.

1. Surprises

2. EarthFall

3. My Sons (Gathering ideas.)

4. Mobius Strip (Rereading some Lumley to get in the mood.)

5. Daria Arrives. (Planning stages.)

6. Of Metal and Men II. (Summery.)

7. Avalon. (Just a SUPER idea.)

8. She died. (Taking shape.)

9. I have a sister?

10. But Why?

11. The Girl and the Cynic.

12. I knew it!


No updates to any of my stories because of an increase in people with way more money than brains.

Let me give you some un-Daria advice. If your PC cost $250 then don't try to sync an $800 phone to it. If you start deleting things under the windows folder because you "don't use them" your computer will die. The registry is not taking up that much space please don't try to "Clean it up."

Ok that's enough work garbage.


A funny Jane story occurred to me this afternoon. What lengths would Jane go to trying to keep her extended family around her. Daria was portrayed as the clingy one in canon so what if Jane wakes up one morning and realizes that her family is spread to the four winds and Daria is leaving soon. I'm kind of booked for a while and this doesn't really grab me but if anyone wanted to write it, I would love to read it.

Monday, February 04, 2008

My Opinion.

I just got word that someone reviewed my work and honestly I expected a bad one and I wasn't disappointed.

I have to admit that the person's criticism is fair but I can't call in constructive because that would of required him to send it to me or let me know that it happened.

I do have one small problem. I think it's rather arrogant and rude to take my work, rewrite and then publish it to his own site. His review stands well without this act.

Maybe this is a nit to pick but I think it's mine to do.

I am requesting without any authority to force him to do so and without a threat of any kind, to please remove the rewrites from his site.

So does anyone have an opinion on this?

Story update.

I just posted updates to Surprises and EarthFall on PPMB so head on over and afterwards you have to check out.

A Little Vacation Part 5 from Doggieboy.

The Plunderin' of Don Jake by Gregor Samsa

Legion of Lawndale Heroes has been updated by Brother Grimace.

Concert is an interesting piece by JPAGC.


All in all it was a good day for reading some Fics.

Sunday, February 03, 2008

Looks like the Booties results are in!

Head on over to the PPMB and check the results.

Didn't get a chance to update my site with the excusive content but I'll try to get to it this week.

I have new parts for EarthFall and Surprises that are almost ready but I was just to busy today to finish them up. But while you're waiting.

Rlobinske just updated Falling into College 61 with Part 11.

thatLONERchick posted another great part to The Night Series.

Kristen Bealer is starting a new story I've waited Here for You.

Dennis posted another part(chapter?) to Turnabout Confusion Part II.


No I'm not telling who won the Booties! Go check.

Well I start my new time tomorrow that involves being leaving for work two hours before I'm use to so I'm heading off to bed early.

Saturday, February 02, 2008

Choice of Music.

I just chucked about two pages of Surprises part 12 because after writing it under the influence of trashy techno pop it turned into a sappy romance that didn't make any sense. (Now I know some people are saying "Hey isn't that par for the course with your writing." but it was really bad.)

A familiar face in making an entrance in EarthFall episode 2 part 2 and is the third of six people from the show (Daria) that are currently planned on being in the story. (More might pop in later on.)

Not much happening on PPMB today but Doggieboy has said he'll try to have Part 5 of A Little Vacation up tomorrow or Monday so there's hope.

Have you guessed I really like this story yet.


Well I'm working on Part 12 for surprises and part 2 for EarthFall at the moment and might get them done before the end of the weekend.

Have fun.

Story update.

I posted EarthFall (Episode 2 pt 1) on PPMB and added a blurb on An Overlooked Flaw on the Dariawiki.

A Little Vacation by Doggieboy is on part 4.

Doesn't look like anyone else has updated today yet.

acidgirl did a great picture of Jane Parino Lane from EarthFall and I was stunned at how perfectly she captured the image from my mind. I'm wearing a tinfoil hat from now on whenever I go to PPMB.

Check it out.

I've got to ask if she'll let me post it over here or on my site. It's really good.

So how long do we have to wait to find out who won the booties?

Friday, February 01, 2008

Better Late than Never!

Finally got an update for Surprises up so go read part 11.

While you're there check out Nature of Nurture by Mascifin and Size does matter Pt.2 by Blackhole and drum role please.

A small update to Legion of Lawndale Heroes by Brother Grimace.

Dennis's Turnabout Confusion is still running hot enough to blow the bolts off the manifold.

Don't you hate waiting for another chapter of an epic story and that's how I'm feeling with Doggieboy's A Little Vacation.


I should have an update for EarthFall tomorrow. I'm working on the first part of Episode 2 tonight.

Voting is over for the booties and anyone who did vote I salute you even if you voted for someone else. LoL. But hey I'm in Florida so I'll be demanding a recount, just kidding.

Look for some excusive content to go up on my site on Sunday including a few shorts I walked away from and a massive tale that I grew disgusted with but couldn't stop until it was finished.

I'll post again tomorrow.

Thursday, January 31, 2008


It's the last day to vote over at PPMB! Why are you still reading this? GO VOTE NOW. You read the work now go vote for your favorite.

C'mon you know you want to.

Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Just an update.

EarthFall episode 1 pt 3 is posted over on PPMB and I'll have a complete Lesson Learned posted on my site later tonight.


In other news you still haven't vote yet have you? Go vote.

Blackhole has started a new fic called "Size does matter" and it is great.

Sidhe completed "Been Here Before." So you have to read that.

RLobinske has part 10 of Falling Into College 61 up. nuff said.

Roentgen's New Drum, Same Tune has another part.

Surprises should get another part tomorrow!


So start reading. Then VOTE on the booties and then you can take a nap.

Internet is still here.

Power was out as soon as I got home yesterday. Took till nine to get if up again.  So I spent the afternoon doing everything but being on the PC. AND IT SUCKED.

Anyway working on my various stories which are suffering due to my recent sced change but I should be back on track in a few more days.

The blog here finally got it's 500th hit.

So have a wonderful Wednesday and don't forget the booties Jan 31rst deadline so go vote.

Monday, January 28, 2008

Zombies are overrunning major US cities.

It's all over. The undead walk the streets and devour anything in their path.


I'm starting a new work sced so I'm not sure how that's going to affect my writing but I'm pretty sure I'll be in the swing of things in a few days. I really hate it when a sced change makes me work 6 days in a row. Ok I'm spoiled.

3 more days till the end of voting for the booties!

Seriously a lot of good stuff and you should go support a writer or artist.


Now remember when dealing with zombies it's not how fast you run but rather the person with you. I recommend a swift downward rake to the shin to slow them down.

Have fun and remember to shoot for the head. Not your head, theirs.

Sunday, January 27, 2008

Back to the salt mines.

The weekend is over at last.

Well PPMB has been up for a few hours without crashing so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I posted Surprises 10 and EarthFall episode 1 parts 1 and 2 already.

Now go read them.

(EarthFall will be broken into episodes with each one about three parts.)

Do to the board outage not much happening today.

The 31rst is almost here. Have you voted on the booties?


Still waiting for any information concerning the Lane household. C'mon please. I'm begging here.

Oh and Doggieboy's A Little Vacation is looking like it's going to be a zombie fic so that means it must be read. I'm not kidding, you have to read it or we may face a class 3 outbreak and I won't be held responsible for that.


Have a good night and don't let the undead bite.

EarthFall is posted.

After the evil message board gremlins disabled PPMB were defeated and the board restored to its glory I have been able to post it.

Go over to PPMB and read it.

Take the time while you're there to check out A Little Vacation from Doggieboy and Crouching Monster, Hidden Magic by LSauchelli and of course the always  great RLobinske is working Falling into College 61: Latitudes.

11:59 PM GMT on January 31 2008 is rapidly approaching and you know you still need to vote so go on now.

Again I'm asking for any information on the Lane house is always messy or unkept conspiracy.

Who? Why? When?

Saturday, January 26, 2008

Long Day

It's been a long day so I'm really glad it's almost over.

I'm trying to post EarthFall Episode 1 Part 1 but PPMB decided to go down just as I did. I'm going to wait a while and try again.

I'll be honest. I'm really looking forward to working Monday through Friday again. It'll give me a chance to get some writing done at night instead of in the morning.

Well if I can't get EarthFall posted today I promise it will go up tomorrow, of course this is depending that the great and powerful web gods of PPMB allow it.

Have a good night!

Here's a question to ponder. Why is the Lane house always written as filthy or cluttered. Other than the bedrooms it was always pretty clean in the show. A pile of mail doesn't count against the  entire house. So why did we as fan writers decide to wreak their house and who was the first one to do it?

Lesson Learned Done!

I just posted the FINAL part to Lesson Learned so I'll be hiding all day to avoid the sub orbital nuke strikes on my suspected locations.

Surprises 9 is up and ready to read as well.

Head on over to PPMB and read for awhile.


I was fooling around and realized I had written the first 2000 or so words for EarthFall so Sight for sore eyes (part 1) should go up later today as well.

Doggieboy started a new fic called A Little Vacation and his work is always worth a read.

Just 6 more days till the end of voting on the booties so hurry up.

Well have a fun Saturday!

Friday, January 25, 2008

Taking a break.

Decided to take a break. I got a few things done and almost ready to post in the morning. They changed my work schedule so this should be my last weekend working. I guess I won't have an excuse to sit for 8 hours in front of a PC on Sat and Sun.

Updated list of current projects.

1. Surprises Part 9

2. Lesson Learned Part Final.

3. EarthFall (warming up in the bullpen.)

4. My Sons (Gathering ideas.)

5. Mobius Strip (Rereading some Lumley to get in the mood.)

6. Daria Arrives. (Planning stages.)

7. Of Metal and Men II. (Summery.)

8. Avalon. (Just a SUPER idea.)

9. She died. (Taking shape.)


It really sucks when I come up with projects faster than I can write them. So many ideas tossed into the trash bin.

Enjoy the weekend.

Just wanted to fill some time.

Ok Surprises Part 9 and Lesson Learned Part Final will be posted tomorrow at some point.

A crazy idea for a story that should never happen occurred to me. Daria shot the QB.

Don't worry I'm not even close to crazy enough to try to write that one.

They have made the claim that I'll get my refund back in ten days so I'm starting the timer and I expect to have a full breakdown sometime around Feb 6 or so.

Thinking about doing a superhero take on Daria not a crossover just take her world and add superpowers. I think I have an idea that no one has done yet.

So look for Avalon sometime in early spring.

Thursday, January 24, 2008


Just to announce that Lesson Learned is getting one more part. Part Final will be up sometime during the weekend. The father will be revealed in it. Almost right away.

I've got about half of it done now.


EarthFall will be the next series that I work on and Surprises has a while to go yet too.

So I'm going to veg for a while and watch something that's not Daria or Robotech for a change. Where did I leave those Zombie flicks?

Stop by TAG's site and check out his Halloween bit.

Happy Times.

Didn't get much writing done today because I finally got my W-2 in and e-filed. Now I'm waiting for the cash. Only time of year I have money and now I'm all anxious waiting for it. I hope it doesn't affect my writing.

On a side note I came up with another story idea. Daria and the Taxes of Death.

Who told TAG he was allowed to have a life, what's next he's allowed to date outside arctic waterfowl?

Not much happening.

Just doing some writing today but feel free to take TAG's challenge concerning Halloween. Here's some inspiration.

hallo4 hallo5 hallo15

hallo14  hallo9

So go write something so I can read it!

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

Surprise 8

Just posted Surprise part 8 over on PPMB and gave away a teaser for part 9. Go read it. Why are you still reading this? Go read the story.


Looks like Lesson Learned will be getting at least one more part between now and Sunday and I hope to get Part 9 of Surprises done by then too.



A Garfish class destroyer mentioned in my Earthfall story. (Robotech.)

NightGoblyn and Dennis have updated their stories on PPMB today so you're already behind so better get reading.


I've read a few fics here and there and I started thinking about what I've come to call the Great Lane yard sculpture. It's been used to hide spaceships, described as large and ugly. For the life of me I couldn't remember if it was Canon or not. So I decided to run through the show and see. It is Canon!


It certainly lacks some of the luster some writers have given it. And the yard looks good.

Here's a close up, or closer up.


Yep it' a huge hunk of metal that looks like a lamp.


Well Surprises Part 8 WILL be up today sometime after I get home from work.

Today is my Friday this week so I'm looking forward for a boring weekend.

Again Ranger Thorne finished up his Dr. Who crossover on PPMB so go read it and join in the begging for a sequel.

Tuesday, January 22, 2008


Just checking.

Just testing a blog writer besides word to see how it works.

Seems to be much better than word. 

Senseless update to fill space.

Just wanted to post what I'm currently working on.

  1. Surprises Part 8 (Should go up tomorrow.)
  2. Lesson Learned (Simmering.)
  3. EarthFall (Some serious planning being done.)
  4. My Sons (Gathering ideas.)
  5. Mobius Strip (I think I know what I want to do with this one.)
  6. Daria arrives (Trying to work out who will be in this one.)
  7. Sequal to Of Metal and Men (I wrote up a summery by accident.)


And I came up with the idea to have Jane have a long lost younger sister show up. (ala Veronica style, But not Veronica.) I'm thinking about calling it something like "Not An Artist!" Or "Forgotten Lane".


Danielle Todds will be appearing in EarthFall!


The Martians have been discovered and it's been proved they are just as boring as we are. Not much need for more later I guess.

Ranger Thorne has finished a story. I know this is one of the signs of the end but it's still a must read!

Another day, another 32 cents.

Just a scene that occurred to be for My Sons.

"Jake how could you do this?" Helen was on the verge of shouting.

"He was dying and wanted to make sure his daughter was taken care of." Jake defended weakly.

"So you promised to have your sons date her. So now what?" Helen fumed.

"Well Daria and Quinn seem to be taking this much better than you are." Jake puzzled.

"Are you insane?" Helen almost screamed.

"Why are you so mad?" Jake asked.

"Because you agreed to have our daughters who you misidentified as boys date some girl and then convinced them to agree to it." Helen replied harshly.

"Maybe they'll like it." Jake said weakly.

"THAT'S THE PROBLEM!" Helen bellowed.

"Eep." Jake answered.

Daria walked in holding hands with Susan.

"Mom, Dad we're going up to my room to study. Knock before you come in and don't mind the loud music. It's a date." Daria smirked making air quotes around the word study.

"Hi Mrs. Morgendorffer." Susan said with a grin.

"You girls have fun." Jake responded.

The girls started out of the room.

"You think you're being funny but I expect that door to stay open and I will be coming up to check on you." Helen called after them.

"Helen be reasonable." Jake tried.

"Jake shut up." Helen fired.


I hope to have Part 8 of Surprises up tomorrow but that will depend on if they want me to actually work at work today. I mean sure they pay me and all but do they really expect me to produce anything. Some people.

Good Evening.

Slow day.

Daria Fandom Blog II is now linking to story updates so it's a great place to check out on a daily basis's. Oh look there is a link right over there on the right.

Well I'm tired and not much is happening.

Don't let the man get you down.

Welcome to the morning.

Interesting articles over at the Daria Fandom II, go check it out.


Getting ready for work and I went and checked out PPMB.

Not much happening today. Oops I should be careful or someone will declare the fandom dead and the great implosion of 2008 will began. I really do wonder what it is that makes someone think they have some right to declare something dead beyond their own story or site. I mean get real. I did a google search and it pulled up a site on the Booties in two different languages. Apparently I'm not received well in France but I'll deal. There were even instructions on how to vote. I think that if every active member of the fandom disappeared there would be someone to move up and take their place. So we're all replaceable so quit thinking you aren't. Sorry just read some of the old Daria is dead posts and such from last summer.

Just relaxing on the stories for a bit to see if anything else comes to me for Lesson Learned. I've got EarthFall kicking against the gate wanting to get moving but it always does in the morning. Thinking about doing another Daria and the living dead stories, I just like zombies.

So take a break and catch up on your reading.

Sunday, January 20, 2008

Good Night.

I just posted Part 7 of Surprises so go over to PPMB and check it out.

RLonbinske updated Falling into Colleges 61 so it's a twofer.

The squirrels have continued their assault and it appears the end is here as attacks are now being reported around the globe.

It's rumored that they have overrun entire cities. It appears that several species of birds have joined forces with them.


Also go check out the Prolog to EarthFall over on my website.

Have a good night.

Random and senseless update.

I just posted a prolog to EarthFall up on my site. It's just a short blurb that takes place about 10 or so years before EarthFall. More reports of squirrel carange have been coming in and it looks like we're going to lose Maine. The military seems unable to deal with the threat from an endless army of insane rats with fluffy tails. So enjoy the story and don't worry about that scratching sound at your door. There's nowhere to run anyway.

Happy 500 day!

My fanfiction site just got it's 500 hundred guest! Mr. 500 hails from Finland. So hi. Ok that was lame but so what. Alright nothing much happening today as they might make me work today. So basicly I'm going to spend the day gathering some notes and tightening up a few of the current projects I've got warming up. Surprises Part 7 should be up sometime much later today. (All I promise is before midnight.) Current list of things to suggest over at PPMB but haven't done yet. Best Replies section of the Booties. Best Scene section of the Booties and of course Adopt an Orphan Story! I really need to post this over there. Again I redid my sight to make the page a little easier to manage and all my stories can be found under the link marked Stories over there. This includes an excusive short oneshot never before seen anywhere. (It wasn't that good so I killed it.) Maybe I should have waited to tell that part? Alright go read something and look out for the squirrels. Apparently some people took the hugs to far and now they've declared war.

Saturday, January 19, 2008

Ok that sucks.

I finished part 6 of Lesson Learned and even I don't think it's over.

I'm going to let it sit for a little while and see what happens next weekend.

Current projects.

  1. Lesson Learned – simmering till next weekend.
  2. Surprises- Going along nicely.
  3. Robotech/Daria crossover-Still in the planning stages. (EarthFall.)
  4. My sons- Sneaking around in the back of my head like jack hammer.
  5. Mobius Strip- Still in the notes stage.

Ok another thing they need to add to the booties is a Reply category. Some of the funniest stuff I've read has been as a reply to a story.

I redid my webpage and moved all the stories over to a secondary page. Makes it easier to find them without all the scrolling.

Click on Stories on my webpage to get to them.

Another Teaser for EarthFall.

Lieutenant Jane Lane (Zentraedi)

REF mission member after refusing to join the Zentraedi contingent.

Master of Arms Garfish class Destroyer, The Henry Global.

Micronized Zentraedi that was born into Micronian form on Earth toward the end of the Malcontent Uprisings.

Unknown if survival would even be possible during resizing process.

Current status- Missing in Action.

Just avoiding.

I was sitting avoiding finishing up part 6 of Lesson Learned and an idea came to me that was somewhat familer. Jake having been ashamed that he had no sons lied to some old friends and agreed to have one of his "sons" court the daughter of a dying friend. After the funeral Jake brings the girl home to meet the "boys". Checked it out and the plot is close to Daria 1/2 by LSaucheli. I'm still thinking of doing it. "What do you mean we're supposed to date her?" Daria deadpanned. "Does she put out?" "But Daddy I don't want to be the boy." Quinn whined. "I can't afford that much." Oh ya I think I'm going to have to do this one.

Good Morning.

Is everyone ready for a fun filled weekend? I'll be hiding behind this wall over here to avoid any thrown projectiles.

Just posted an update to both Surprises and Lesson Learned over on PPMB.

Surprises Part 6

Lesson Learned Part 4


I also started scrapping together my notes for my Robotech/Daria crossover. Just as a FYI no characters from the Robotech verse will be appearing but some will be mentioned. (ie. Admiral Hunter etc)


I'll release a plot teaser.



Lieutenant Commander Daria Maria Morgendorffer.

Second in Command of the Garfish class destroyer, The Henry Global.

Assigned to advance recon mission tasked to test Invid planetary defenses as precursor to the Mars attack group's main offensive.

Missing in Action.

All ships lost and no intel confirming or denying survivors at this time.

Friday, January 18, 2008

Just an update.

Getting some notes together for Lesson Learned 4-6 and it's becoming clearer that I'm going to catch some heat for them. I don't think it's going to go deep enough. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

I can recommend Cloverfield to anyone who is thinking about seeing it.

Well that's it for today.

A little secret!

I'm getting ready to start doing my Lesson Learned story and I thought I'd share a little secret concerning the father.


It might not even get disclosed in the story. I guess I'll find out once I start writing the next three parts. I'm kind of curious and I'm expecting some serious hate mail on it.

Well going to go see Cloverfield with the kiddies.

First person with confirmed pictures of a snipe or drop bear wins a cookie.

Thursday, January 17, 2008

Story update!

Part 5 of Surprises was just posted over on PPMB you should go read it. While you're there check out Been Here Before by The Sidhe.

Slow week for fiction.

It's really making me think the Adopt an Orphaned story is a good idea. And you have till Jan 31rst to vote for the booties, did I mention that's my birthday too! I wonder what you could get me hummm.


Best Scene In a fanfiction would be a great category for the booties.

You could break it up into drama or horror, comedy whatever. Some of the best scenes ever have come from so-so stories.

Don't forget about the squirrels!

Day off

It's my weekend and hopefully this god awful headache will go away and I can get some writing done.

Looks like Outpost Daria is rising from the dead and will once again slouch through the streets bring Daria to the masses. (I've already sent an email to check what formats are ok.)

Oh and is there some reason people don't leave their names or nicknames when leaving comments?

Well I'm going to swallow a few dozen Tylenol and try to get some writing done. You go read something and don't forget to hug a squirrel today.

Wednesday, January 16, 2008

Sudden Traffic increase!

I think I got complemented today but I'm not sure but I'll take it as one.


Because TAG's suddenly discovered modesty (he's too busy with his Ebola and penguins anyway) and this legendeld guy's just appeared in the sky like a Vorlon planet-killer over Centauri Prime, it's time to do some blatant self-promotion.


I refuse to involve myself in such attempts to curry favor for me and my 24 nominations in several categories. But feel free to check out some of my work and then head to PPMB and vote.

Written works Nominations-



Lots of great work out there so start reading.


I decided to give a hint on my Lesson Learned story by putting a picture of the father. Yes it's ok to hate me.

Tuesday, January 15, 2008

Fast update

Should be posting Touch of Madness to my site tomorrow. I'm hoping to get Surprises part 5 up on the PPMB late tomorrow night as well. Google pulled my index on my main site and traffic took a nose dive so I'm not having as many traffic reports to read. (* sniff sniff)

Thinking about suggesting something over at the PPBM for all the abandoned stories.

Adopt an orphan!

Take a story that hasn't had any new posts for say a year and try to continue it. Assuming the author isn't still active on the board and doesn't object.

Any opinions on this idea?

Well I'm getting tired after a hard day sitting in front of a PC all day.

Have you hugged a fanfic author today?
