==Artie in ''Daria'' Fanfic== Artie's numerous appearances in fanfic have been extremely consistent to type. He is usually depicted as a pizza-delivery guy or pizza waiter, but he sometimes has other jobs (paperboy, subpoena server, babysitter, etc.), having lost his previous employment for predictable reasons. His appearances are brief, minor, and humorous, with a few notable exceptions. It is not uncommon to see him interviewed on ''[[Sick, Sad World]]'' about his various alien encounters and abductions, with which he is perpetually obsessed. He seems delusional, but once in a while (in science-fiction tales) his wild claims about aliens turn out to be perfectly correct. He is present in the background of the [[John Lane series]], [[The Look-Alike Series]], the [[Driven Wild Universe]], and many more besides. He also appears in several [[crossovers]], being mentioned in passing even in a ''Doctor Who'' tale, [[Yui Daoren]]'s "[[Doctor Who Gives a Damn]]." Typical examples of Artie's appearances in fanfic include the following, in no particular order. * [http://web.archive.org/web/20081013170706/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/suffer_the_children.txt "Suffer the Children"] by [[Peter Guerin]] * [http://web.archive.org/web/20080703230946/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/essay_of_exile_part_2.html "Essay of Exile II: Return to Lawndale"] by [[RedPanther]] * [http://web.archive.org/web/20101220234604/http://outpost-daria.com/fanfic/ring_toss.html "Ring Toss"] by [[Nemo Blank]] * [http://www.theangstguy.com/fanfics/darius.htm "Darius"] by [[TAG]] More unusual examples appear below. * [http://web.archive.org/web/20110519152203/http://outpost-daria.com/fanfic/interview_with_the_alien.html "Interview with the Alien"] by [[Galen Hardesty]] (Artie in semi-major role) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20110912155745/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/its_that_guy.html "It's That Guy"] by [[Richard Lobinske]] (Artie in semi-major role) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20110519134344/http://outpost-daria.com/fanfic/d2010_the_treasure_of_angela_li.html "Daria 2010: The Treasure of Angela Li"] by [[Robert Nowall]] (Artie in the future, hasn't changed much) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20110519151201/http://outpost-daria.com/fanfic/weekend_at_barchs.html "Weekend at Barch's] by [[Patrick Moore]] (now a paperboy) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20110519180415/http://outpost-daria.com/fanfic/tnts106_courtroom_trauma.html "Courtroom Trauma"] by [[Ben Breeck]] (now a process server) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20110924141256/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/the_exercise_project.html "The Exercise Project"] by [[Thomas]] (now a part-time babysitter) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20090724071236/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/cynic_wars_episode_4.txt "Cynic Wars: Episode IV: A New State of Hopelessness"] by [[Matt]] (amusing [[crossover]] with Artie as a Jawa replacement) * [http://www.theangstguy.com/fanfics/harddaysnight.htm "A Hard Days' Night"] by [[TAG]] (Artie as a paranormal crimefighter with alien connections) Artie's most atypical roles in fanfic are given below. * [http://web.archive.org/web/20080513122437/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/its_a_wonderful_life_not.html "It's a Wonderful Life, Not"] by [[Thomas]] (amusing [[crossover]] with Artie as an incompetent angel) * [http://www.the-wildone.com/fanfics/ma_fics/daymarried.htm "A Day in the Married Life"] by [[Mr. Anonymous]] (highly unusual [[alternate universe]] story featuring a recast Artie) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20101220234343/http://outpost-daria.com/fanfic/too_many_choices.html "Too Many Choices"] by [[Nemo Blank]] (excellent expanded comedy role) * [http://web.archive.org/web/20110916042822/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/alien_home.html "Alien Home"] by [[Richard Lobinske]] (see [[Artie Simmons]]); well-cast dramatic role in the [[Mother's Love]] series * [http://web.archive.org/web/20080808114316/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/alien_heritage.html "Alien Heritage"] by [[Richard Lobinske]] (see [[Artie Simmons]]; this sequel to "Alien Home" expands upon his character) * [http://www.theangstguy.com/fanfics/butnowisfound.htm "But Now Is Found"] by [[TAG]], part of the [[Outers]] series (possibly the only "evil Artie" in fanfic) [[Image:Artie-atgil.gif|frame|right|Artie reappears at [[Pizza King]] in "[[A Tree Grows in Lawndale]]"]]
