Contrarian's Corner Updated; Is Dr. Mike Leaving?

The Contrarian's Corner has updated. Click here to determine what has been added.

The DVDaria Blog has also updated, and you might wish to catch up on the newest efforts to bring Daria to DVD.

Dr. Mike has asked that Daria websites pull his stories. While I don't agree with his decision, I respect it and hope that things get better for Dr. Mike. I would rather that things be going well for Dr. Mike and him have no involvement with Daria fandom than hear that things are going poorly for him while he's involved 24/7. Sometimes, you do have to step back.

I have e-mailed Ann Larimer, the creator of the customized Jane Lane figure below. No response, but the e-mail address given in the article is five years old. If anyone has luck contacting her, please let the DFB know.

Wraith completed a new chapter of "FBCB".

TDJC May Be Open in Future

Wraith completed a new chapter of "FBCB".

Lawndale Stalker continued Chapter 3 of "Kidnapped".

The Great Saiyaman continued with page 8 of his erotic Daria comic at SFMB.

The mystery of The Daria-Jane Conspiracy going down is solved - lack of funds. From the site owner, Dr. Mike, at PPMB:

January's bill was $65. I had four sites that did more than 10 gigs in traffic. (2 of the TDJC sites, the crossword site, and another one which will get me in trouble if I posted about it here.) In addition, I host over a 100 sites for free and it seems like most of them are now doing a lot more traffic. (Heck Thea's did just under a gig last month and it was 14th on the list in bandwidth. Not to point fingers or anything. Just using that as an example.) I had $50 contributed but that went for paying off of December's bandwidth which is now paid off, had 70 cents earned from the banners, and um $15 from *cough* other affiliate programs which I haven't been paid for yet.


If you want to contribute, feel free to paypal it to michael (dot) wendell (at) theapparatus (dot) net.

What is a fanlisting? To borrow from a definition I've seen cut and pasted many times:

What is a fanlisting? It's a place for all fans of a particular show, movie, actor/actress, singer, etc. to come together and build the biggest listing of people from all around the world who are fans of that subject.

And of course, there are Daria fanlistings of all shapes and sizes. If you're a Stacy Rowe fan, you can check out Sweetly Neurotic , fans of Brittany Taylor should see Absolutely Clueless , and even Jake Morgendorffer has his own fan listing at High Strung . There are also show/theme Daria fanlistings, like Do It For Some Guy (the fanlisting for "Pierce Me" fans) and You're Not Better , an anti-Tom "hatelisting". Follow the links and waste 20 minutes.

Daria Wars?

Hiergargo posted "Trent vs. the Non-Bohemian Lanes" on PPMB.

A slight diversion from the usual. I went to one of the Daria fan sites this AM, and the web administrator stated that it was time for a one month rest.

Why? Two reasons: first, when asking for permission to post fan work, many of the people contacted blatantly refused. One person gave the excuse that "(X) is the only REAL Daria fan site" as an excuse. Another reason was that the site was under assault not only by computer attack, but from nastygrams from some right-wing group that wanted the administrator to get rid of all adult works on the sites. The administrator stated that he had been called just about every name except a son of God.

The post isn't there any more (or is carefully hidden), but my comments on the above.

1) I think that the problem with Daria fandom is that unlike your job or school or any real world social group, Daria fandom is more or less a random sampling of humanity. School, work, and informal groups have a way of excluding the type of people that we call "dicks".

In "flesh space" we can ignore those people or have them removed from the group. Usually, they don't even GET to the group. They're not hired, they flunk out, are arrested, whatever. In "cyber space", we can't ignore those people, and one comes to the conclusion quite quickly in any fandom that one is dealing with a bunch of sociopathic personalities.

So is Daria fandom chock full of nuts? Probably as much as any fandom. It only seems like everyone is nutty since we usually go out of our way to avoid crazy people in real life, and it is a shocker to be exposed to those people. Already, a notorious fan has been banned from SFMB for out of bounds behavior. I don't think that Daria fandom is worse or better than any other fandom, save for the fact that there is the disturbing tendency now for people to move from real names to "handles" in order for their personal privacy/safety to be maintained.

One class below the sociopaths, we find the "dicks". Many Second Fans are ASTONISHED, nay, HORRIFIED to find out that some BNFs and First Fans are...well..."dicks". Trust me, it happens. You try to talk to these people, and they unload both guns on you. These people are still struggling with some third-grade trauma, and they're going to take it out on you if they think they have an easy target.

Many "dicks" are still able to function in society. There are many of them on message boards all over Daria fandom -- we won't name names; trust me, you know who they are already. And some of our best authors and biggest BNFs are "dicks". And they will snap at you just for the hell of it.

Just smile, say, "thank you", and move on with your life. My two cents.

2) As for the cyberassault, I'd love to know the name of that group, so at least Daria fandom could hold them in collective and individual derision. But that's as may be.

A lot of Second Fans forget how sensitive the idea of "adult" works are. For the longest time in fandom, there WERE no erotic fan works. When "Ragged Denim" came out (T. Wilde and Ivanova), there was a firestorm of controversy. D.DEBBS ended up isolating herself; I don't know the story about that but the Martin Pollard faction won that fight.

When myself (and other fans) created "Lawndale after Dark", there was another firestorm. We KNEW there would be a firestorm. That's why it was created. Wouter Jaegers could write stuff like "Let's Be in Love" (Quinn/Stacy non-erotic slash) and there was the genre of fiction I am forced to call "rapefic" (character is raped, becomes a better person for it), but boobs and wangs were somehow out of bounds.
I thought that quite prudish; I am still pleased with the results.

Now, there's erotica all over, particularly at SFMB and The Daria-Jane Conspiracy. No one notices, or cares. However, I will tell another tale out of fandom.

At one time, used to host "R (or X)" rated works. You could get erotica on, as well as Harry Potter fan fiction.

Xing, the webmaster of, was getting a lot of complaints. First, from those who felt like the X-rated work was leading fans to hell. Second, from places like JK Rowling's watchdogs zealously out to defend copywright.

So Xing did three things:
a) yanked all of the dirty stuff,
b) pulled all literature based fanfiction
c) pulled all reality show fan fiction (at one time you could find Ryan Stiles/Colin Mochrie slash at the "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" site -- I swear to your deity I am not killing).

People went wild over Xing's decision. I think I was the only one who understood it. Xing had a site to run, and he needed to keep the site safe. There wasn't that much erotic out there, he didn't need the lawsuits, and he found that slash stories involving real people crossed moral lines. So he killed the stories. He kept the site alive, more secure, more free of lawsuits.

If someone had to pull erotic stories from a Daria fan site, that would be fine. However, I hope someone would put up another site where those stories could be stored.

Finally, there's a way to deal if you want to post your stories on a Daria fan fiction web site and don't care if some other webmaster wants to post the stories. Just put this at the end:

This work remains the property of its original creator. The original creator agrees to grant any website a non-commercial license to publish and display this Work or to publish, display or otherwise use the Work in a non-commercial manner, with the condition that the work not be substantially altered from its original form.

"Daria" and other characters which appear are creations of MTV/Viacom, and all rights are reserved.

Top Ten PPMB Posters remains down.

Top Ten posters on the Paperpusher Message Board (PPMB):

1. Kara Wild, 2844 posts
2. drmike, 2801 posts
3. crossada75, 2433 posts
4. R(ichard)Lobinske, 2421 posts
5. Deref, 2416 posts
6. Kristen Bealer, 2398 posts
7. Isa(belle) Yo(ung)-Jo(hnson), 2087 posts
8. The Angst Guy, 1985 posts
9. Angelinhel, 1934 posts
10. Dervish, 1744 posts

How will this list look a year from now. More than likely, Richard Lobinske will become the top PPMB poster with Isa Yo-Jo and Dervish following close behind. Most of the people on this list have been posting on PPMB even before 2003 (when the turnover from the old PPMB board to the new board took place), but RLobinske, Isa Yo-Jo and Dervish joined several months later in 2004 and are already at the top ten.

Does the top ten have any meaning? There's at least one poster here who doesn't really make that many posts having to do with Daria or Daria fandom. However, these are frequent commenters and are probably the people it would be safe to ask if you had a question about anything fan-related.

Dr. Mike,

The Origin of Daria and Quinn?

Most fans know that the current MTV Daria site is at . There, you'll find two flipbooks, one of character designs and the other of Daria alter-egos.

The Daria Fandom Blog asks if there was another MTV Daria URL other than this one (the "old MTV Daria site"). If you know the location, please leave it in the comments.

The Angst Guy comes up with an interesting theory. Between 1979 and 1981, there was an American cartoon called the "Godzilla Power Hour". I won't explain the plot, but one of the scientists was known as Professor Darien Quinn:

(Note: other websites call her Professor Quinn Darien.) Is this the secret origin story of the Morgendorffer Sisters?

(Also thanks to the fan who found that Tom Sloane's name might have come from The Great Gadsby - sorry, I can't remember his or her name.)

There is a long thread titled "Aspect of the Show...." in the "Deep Thoughts" section of PPMB which is worth a read.

Lawndale Stalker completed more of Chapter Two of "Kidnapped".

E. A. Smith is up to Chapter 7, Part 2 of "Seven Days".

Wraith completed a new part of "FBCB".

The Great Saiyaman completed a new page of his erotic Daria comic, "Daria Joins the Raft University Triple Cross Club", which can be found in secret sections of the SFMB.

Four Things That Need to Get Done

(Because of course, I, CINCGREEN, know exactly what needs to get done and what doesn't.)

1) The Daria Encyclopedia needs to be completed. If my move happens in March/April, I should have a couple of months off. This will give me time to finish the work and decided if anyone wants to host it and I can move it away from, which is its current resting place (Note: very very long time to download.)

2) There needs to be some kind of tape exchange in Daria fandom. MST3K has a tape exchange, where fans of the show can exchange tapes with other fans. Right now, there is no way for anyone whose collection is short a few episodes to get those episodes. I'm not talking about selling tapes, per se, I'm talking about certain fans agreeing to making the tapes as courtesy for other fans. This would be done on a not-for-profit basis (only charge is for purchasing the tapes and mailing them). KEEP SENDING THE TAPES/DVDs! GET IT TOGETHER! RAH! RAH! RAH!

3) With the above in mind, Daria fandom needs to come to a hard, no-wiggle-room decision regarding those who sell Daria DVD collections for profit. Is the policy to
a) report these people to Viacom?
b) report these people to ISP/website administrators?
c) agree never to report on these sites in the hopes of killing publicity for them?
d) figuring out which sites are "trustworthy" and telling our friends through private messages/email?
e) recommend sites to fans?

The problem is that for many years, Viacom has treated Daria fans like the proverbial red-haired stepchildren. I don't want to do Viacom's police work for it when it moved the show around for years, showed each Season Five episode a grand total of one time on MTV, and drags its feet on the DVD issue. (Sorry Kara.)

4) Look over nmorgendorffer's "Beginner's Guide to Daria Fandom". Where's that guide?


More Fan Faces

Lawndale Leftovers has updated with three new fragments.

A picture of Wouter Jaegers and another picture of Father Martin Sylvester (an older picture).

Crabcake reprinted Episode 2 and the unfinished Episode 3 of "An Age Old Question" by Beth Ann on PPMB. She lost these files in a computer crash.

Guess the Avatar

Here are ten avatars from various Daria fans posting on PPMB. Without rushing to PPMB to check, can you guess the identity of each fan?


If you can't identify all of them, you'll have to read "Night of the Storm" or any work by the Banned Nameless One.


New Chapters and Leftovers

Greystar completed a new chapter of "Daria 3059".

Lawndale Stalker completed Chapter 2 of "Kidnapped".

Roentgen completed a new chapter of "Legion of Lawndale Heroes".

Just a reminder regarding a site that many Daria fans don't know about. It's called "Lawndale Leftovers" and can be found here .

Unlike the "Canonical Eight" fan fiction websites, Lawndale Leftovers does NOT accept your typical Daria fanfiction story. What they accept are stories that are "unfinished, short, or just didn't work out".

Types of stories accepted, according to the webmaster of Lawndale Leftovers, SUSU:

"Ficlets: Short self-contained fics, usually with surprising endings.
Fragments: Single scenes that were meant to be part of a fanfic that never took shape, or that were cut from an existing fanfic.
Failed attempts: Fanfic gone wrong in the broadest terms. Characters and plot lines that go out of control and make a mess of coherent thoughts.
Songfics: Song Adaptations or original songs.
Rants: Opinionated? Angry? Controversial? If you want to turn the Daria community upside down. Here!
100 Words: Ficlets with no more than 100 words end up here.
Featured Stories: If it sucks so bad it´s really good, it´s still to good to be put here. If it´s so bad that it it´s worse than those fics that are too bad to be so bad they are good it might qualify.
Meta: Daria on a different level. Das Pferd grasst auf der Metaebene, baby."

Matt is Back From Surgery

Matt has recovered from surgery and is back at PPMB.

Having some problems posting fan art. Usually I will link to a site and set height and width attributes, but the WYSIWIG editor tends to mix up the img tabs. Will experiment at home.

Dr. Mike statistically breaks down some of the fanwork submitted to The Daria-Jane Conspiracy at the TDJC forum.

The voting for the 2004 Crappie Awards is now closed. Expect the results to be posted soon.

"et alia" now wishes to be know as "Scissors MacGillicutty".

sleepless completed Chapter 19 of "Yuki-Onna".

Kara Wild reports that the reason Michelle Klein-Hass took down the Lawndale Commons website was due to her embarrassment of having contributed to Daria/Trent relationshipper fan fiction.

Deref wishes for all Daria fans to ask Michelle Klein-Hass to bring the site back up (or to make her missing stories available). He also asks that C. L. Basso also return his missing works. I'm sure either author can be reached through PPMB, but if anyone wishes to provide e-mail addresses, I'll post them here at the Daria Fandom Blog.


Lawndale Commons Comes Down

On The Music Factory's message board (The Music Factory is a UK project of MTV), there's a brand new topic called "Let's All Talk About Daria". It can be found here . So go there!

(Thanks to Father Martin Sylvester for pointing it out on the Daria News Archive, and everyone else for flooding the boards earlier.)

Michelle Klein-Hass has permanently taken down Lawndale Commons. She has moved her own stories elsewhere (particularly, to The Sheep's Fluff), and will pull the "Lawndale, CT" stories permanently. According to Richard Lobinske, the reason is that she felt Quinn's rape in the "Lawndale, CT" continuum influenced too many other similar rape stories.

Gregor Samsa (Shane Greentree) won the AE Cahill History Prize, as the best first year student in Modern European History. Congratulations.

E. A. Smith is pursuing his Ph. D. on the subject of exploding stars and the expanding universe.

Ranger Thorne finished "Shadow of a Cynic: Chapter 4".

E. A. Smith started Part 1 of Chapter 4 of "Seven Days".

The Angst Guy finished Part 11 of "Illusions".

There is only one day left of voting for the 2004 Crappie Awards.

thea_zara states that there are no plans for any kind of political forum on SFMB. PPMB has a politics forum, but SFMB does not.

The Urban Daria

From the page on Daria : these are some of the definitions posted:

A great show that was aired on MTV back when it was actually a cool channel. Spin-off of Beavis and Butthead which featured a highly intelligent high school girl with a razor sharp wit. Was unpopular because she refused to conform to the masses of brainwashed sheep at her high school. Had a sister named Quinn who was a superficial, stuck-up little bitch and was supposedly a fashion maven, yet wore the exact same outfit almost every single episode.


One of the EXTREMELY few shows MTV had that was actually good, along with Aeon Flux and Beavis and Butt-head. Daria was very anti-MTV in nature, and it was no wonder that it was cancelled by those stupid fucks at MTV.


it was one of the very few good MTV shows. She was anti-social,hated sport,liked sick sad world and she rocked. She also talked quite slow and had a friend called Jane. Stupid MTV they axed it!


The true meaning of what it is to be a high-schoola'..Never givin a fuck about no one or nothin. Never gettin' involved in shit. You hoes need to stop standin' on her neck


A very awesome show about an anti-social and cynical teenage girl named *duh!* Daria Morgendorffer.

Maybe we need to put up some better definitions....


Old Creations and New Creations

Happy 39th Birthday to Redleg Rick!

E. A. Smith has started work on "Seven Days", a cross between Daria and "The Ring".
