Author has written 15 stories for Daria.

I am a big fan of Daria and that is the fan fiction which I post on this site. I try to make all of my stories as true to canon as possible while building a plausible future for the characters post-IICY.

I have written the following stories about Daria post-college, which are in effect Daria books:

  1. Daria in the Ring
  2. Daria on the Sideline
  3. Daria Takes Charge - in progress

I have also posted artwork, which I had a professional artist create and have the artist's permission to use. This is strictly fan art. These are associated with the following stories/chapters:

Daria in the Ring cover art

Chapter: Sweet Daria O'Mine Chapter: Ain't It Fun! (Please note that due to fanfiction.net's limitations this is only a slice of a larger work.)

Daria on the Sideline cover art

Chapter: What about Daria Chapter: Wild Daria

I have written the following stories about Daria during college as she experiences her senior year and immediate post-graduation. These are short stories. They are not posted in chronological order. I list them here in chronological order.

  1. The Bench - This is the first story chronologically.
  2. The Game - Daria travels to Bromwell to see Tom.
  3. The Storm - This was inspired in part by artwork from Eve Bolt: The Lake and Storm.
  4. Thanksgiving - Tom goes to Daria's place for Thanksgiving.
  5. Christmas - Daria goes home for Christmas and New Year's break.
  6. The Fight - This was inspired by a drawing from Princess_Pasta.
  7. The Kiss - This was inspired by a drawing from Princess_Pasta.
  8. The Call - Daria calls Tom about graduation.
  9. Graduations - Daria and Tom graduate from college.
  10. The Interview - Daria and Tom interview for jobs in New York City.
  11. The Move - Daria moves to New York and gets ready to start her life after college.

My newest series - in book form - takes Daria to a time later in life, when she and Tom embark on one last great adventure together. This is:

Daria's Great Adventure - in progress.

I hope that you enjoy these stories and the artwork.

As usual: Daria and all of the characters of the show are the property of MTV and are used without expressed permission. I post fan fiction and fan art which is created purely for the enjoyment of the author and those who choose to read or view my material. None of this is for sale and no income is to be derived from it.
