==Fanfic Portrayals== ===Allied Jodie=== A common approach is the one from canon: Jodie allied to and friendly with Daria. This was especially common with older fanfics like "[http://web.archive.org/web/20110915113216/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/on_the_outside.html On the Outside]" by [[Jon Kilner]] or [[C.E. Forman]]'s "[[The Lost Seasons]]" series. It's also common to see Jodie presented as really good friends with Daria, such as in [[John Lane]] - more so than in the show itself. A rare variation, [[Kristen Bealer]]'s "[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12194323/1/Two-Under-Par Two Under Par]", has Jodie becomes friends with ''Jake''. ===Powderkeg Jodie=== Jodie is often portrayed in fanfic as being under tremendous pressure from her parents to succeed, to the point where their only interaction with their daughter is to push her to extend herself further and further. As a result of this pressure, Jodie internalizes resentment and frustration until she eventually loses control and rebels against her parents' wishes. In some stories, this rebellion takes the form of an emotional confrontation with her parents wherein she tells them that she cannot take their demands and expectations anymore, or she begins dating people her parents would consider wildly inappropriate for her; in other cases, she acts out her frustrations more aggressively, dropping out of all her activities and refusing to accept her parents' value system (often with the help of Daria and Jane). In a few fics, her frustration is expressed in extreme fashions, such as suicide or violence, as she sees no way out from under her parents' unrealistic expectations. While this portrayal certainly does have a basis in canon, the series itself never shows Jodie expressing any more than a mild exasperation at her parents. Also, while her parents are certainly contributors to her overachievement, Jodie also places a great deal of pressure on herself, as well; her extreme amount of activity cannot therefore be laid completely at the feet of her parents. ===Cut-loose and running free Jodie=== [[Image:JodieMarley.png|thumb|180px|right|Jodie cuts loose, sort of]] Another popular portrayel of Jodie in fanfics and fan art is of Jodie-post Lawndale high, free from her parents able to live her life without the strict direction from her parents. Most often that leads to her and Mack making up for lost ground, this has roots in Jodie and Mack's canon behavior, most notably in "[[Is It College Yet?]]" where the two of them are seen kissing after Mack has talked with Jodie's father pursauding him to let Jodie off. ===Negligent Girlfriend Jodie=== In [[canon]], Jodie is often depicted as being too busy with her many projects and responsibilities to give much time or attention to her beau, Mack. This is used in some fanfics as the springboard to an eventual breakup of the couple. A detailed look at this issue appears under "[[Joma]]." ===Evil Jodie=== More common as time has gone on and fanfic writers have started to look at the characters in new ways, these fanfics show Jodie as flawed to antagonist to outright villain. "[[God Save The Esteem]]" had Jodie as a secondary antagonist, driven by far-right views, until over time she became just does-not-like-Daria antagonistic. [[TAG]] and [[Brother Grimace]]'s horror story "[[Gimme Skelter]]" has a sociopathic Jodie looking to make the apocalypse far worse. ===Referee Jodie=== Jodie is briefly seen as a referee for the final boxing tournament in the fanfic [[Million Daria Baby]] by [[tommyXmaserati]].
