Four Friends, Four Winds

From DariaWiki

The 43rd story in the Falling Into College series by Richard Lobinske. The story occurs during late May, 2001.


Soon after Quinn returns to Lawndale, Sandi Griffin also returns, and asks to stay with the Morgendorffers because her parents have disowned her after Sandi's testimony against Linda Griffin the previous fall. The previous year has been very tough on Sandi, alone at college, disowned by her parents and having gained weight. She reveals to Quinn that she's barely passing and probably attend a local college the next year. Quinn arranges for the former Fashion Club to get together. When Sandi is reluctant because of her looks, Quinn shows photos and tells about Fran, and her struggles to keep her weight up. Back together, Stacy tells about her time at Lawndale Community College, auto racing and working with her father. She's adopted much more of a tomboy look than before. Tiffany has been modeling athletic wear and working out at the direction of her agent. She's no longer painfully thin and healthier. They go to the mall for a day together like the old days. However, when they go out together that night, it becomes clear that the four women are no longer as close as they once were.

Winner of "Favorite Quinn" story in the 3rd Daria Fanworks Awards
