An interesting variation on Sweet Stacy, this variation of Stacy shows her either in the process of becoming more mature to insightful onlookers, or shows her at some time in the future, where we see that she is no longer the quintessential victim of "kick the cat" syndrome. Maturing Stacy fics focus on how Stacy realizes that the world of high school is a transitory one, and (usually behind the backs of her fellow [[Fashion Club]] members) endeavors to better herself academically, culturally, and socially, with positive results. Another trademark of these stories is that we find Stacy to be quite intelligent (albeit crippled by her home life, parents, or by the Fashion Club itself), as well as a capable student and source of useful information. In many cases, Maturing Stacy is actually a pale shadow of [[Daria Morgendorffer|Daria]] herself, but without her own [[Jane Lane]] to provide unconditional support and friendship.

The first major work to display this Stacy variation was [[Austin Covello]]'s [http://web.archive.org/web/20090716040129/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/a_day_in_the_life_of_stacy.html "A Day in the Life of Stacy"], but can also be seen in [[Brother Grimace]]'s "[[Lunchtime, Doubly So...]]" and [[Nemo Blank]]'s "[[Ring Toss]]." We also see echoes of this variation in the Year Two stories of the [[Legion of Lawndale Heroes]] series and in [[TAG]]'s "[[Outcasts from Beyond]]," both of which depict Stacy as a superhero. A variation of this theme can be found in [[Richard Lobinske|Richard Lobinske's]] story, "[[A Daze at the Races]]." Stacy Rowe's revitalized appearance in [[Ruthless Bunny]]'s "[[Bed and Breakfast Man]]" is a wonder to behold.

*Stacy is well-known for wearing her hair in braids or pigtails. For formal events she is usually seen wearing her hair down, with no specific styling regimen to enhance it (the "natural look").

*Fanfic portrayals of Stacy, in her role of [[Fashion Club]] secretary, show her (while carrying out her duties) as a very accurate recorder of detail and a encyclopedia of knowledge relating to matters within and outside the world of fashion. This is one of the points emphasized in the Maturing Stacy depiction and is best illustrated in [http://web.archive.org/web/20090716040129/http://www.outpost-daria.com/fanfic/a_day_in_the_life_of_stacy.html "A Day in the Life of Stacy,"] although in [[Legion of Lawndale Heroes]], Jane recognizes Stacy's abilities and asks for help during the second election for Legion Leader.

*Stacy's depiction in [[shipper|romantic story lines]] is primarily with the Sweet Stacy image, with a gentle innocence and a playful mischievousness included. Because of this, many of Stacy's romantic liaisons in fanfic occur with [[Ted DeWitt-Clinton]] (as he is seen as innocent as she is) and, surprisingly, with Quinn in [[slash]] fanfic. The Stacy/Ted pairing was taken to an horrific extreme in the fanfic "[[Stacy in Hell]]." Nonetheless, one still sees depictions of her as "Stacy, the Sex Machine."
