Daria 2007: The Girl from Hope is a story written by The Angst Guy. The premise of the story is twofold: the story makes use of the changes in culture, technology and history that have occurred since Daria went off the air in 2002 (setting the story in the present day of 2007, ten years after the show first aired), and Daria Morgendorffer and Jane Lane are considered virtual delinquents, with Daria transferring to Lawndale High from Highland's Hope High School instead of Highland High. Many current events (school shootings, 2000 U.S. election, 9/11 terrorist attacks, Iraq War) are referenced and made integral to the story's plot. The story begins in the fall of 2007 but ends some years later.

Hope High School was supposedly more dangerous than Highland High. In the show Beavis and Butt-head, an angry Coach Buzzcut once threatened to send the two to Hope High, where they would supposedly "get their asses kicked" on a regular basis. In this story, Daria's sarcastic nature inadvertently leads to a tragedy that gets her sent to Hope.
