Disco316 (sometimes written Disco 3:16) is a Daria fan from Wisconsin who has been writing stories since September 2008. The name Disco 3:16 came from his first and most successful fantasy professional wrestler, an amalgamation of Stone Cold Steve Austin and Disco Inferno. As a fan of the Pet Shop Boys, he name-drop or lyric-dropped them wherever possible.
Ryan Mickelson is an original character created by Disco316 based on himself, which he uses when, according to the author, he feels "lazy". Attempts at shipping Ryan with a canon character, usually Quinn or Stacy, have predictably failed miserably, to the point that the author has made it a running gag on the Scenes That Should Not Be threads.
