===Cynic Magazine===
Tafka started [[Cynic]] in October 2000 . Originally called BC Newz, the magazine was a light read with reviews and a serial fanfic, and up-to-date information on the ABC and what their intentions were with the show. [[Padded Walls]] began as an homage to Cynic. It is not the same, although it was intended to be.

Tafka started [[Cynic]] in October 2000 . Still the only Daria Fanzine, it had an extremely small but loyal readership. It is suspected that virtual copies got passed about the place because the mailing list was rather smaller compared to the amount of people who came up to Tafka & said "you write that?!"
 +
Cynic was reborn in 2003 at the request of [[CINCGREEN]] . Later, under his editorialship, the project was renamed " [[the Padded Walls]] ."

Both [[Kara Wild]] & Tafka agree that the two works have very little in common & neither would like either associated with each other.

Tafka hosted the original [[OzDariaCon]] in January of 2001, held in Brisbane, QLD. Attended by [[Lew Richardson]] (writer of [[Heroes]] ), [[Caira]] (who called himself Rancour in those days) the webmaster of the [[Daria Fan Quotefest ]] , and [[jewli]] of the small j. [[Geoff Roberts]] , who designed the website, cancelled at the last minute after helping Taf immensely.

It was officially held for the weekend of the 20th/21st January, although most guests arrived on the 19th. The event is particularly notable as the first official meeting of Lew & Taf, who by then had been dating for two months. There have been ODCs held annually since, the most recent ODC to date being the wedding of Tafka and Lew on the 3rd of March 2007.

==Coincidence==
 
Lew and Tafka got married on the 10th Anniversary of Daria. They didn’t actually plan it that way. They’d originally planned to get married on the 6th Anniversary of OzDariaCon – the 20th of January, but decided it was way too hot to do it then, and so picked a date they though would be cooler. They found out that the date we’d picked was the big day for Daria fans just as we were finishing up the last of the invites.
