"Life Goes On: A Christmas Special" is a scriptfic by WildDogJJ. It's a post-canon story featuring the now-adult characters, many of whom have children of their own. What starts as a school Christmas pageant for the kids ("Damn familial obligations", comments Daria) turns into a bigger misadventure dealing with what seem to be misappropriated finances. While it does touch on the COVID pandemic that was ongoing during its creation, the disease does not play a major role.
Was nominated for Favorite Pre-Canon or Post-Canon in the 2020 Daria Fanworks Awards.
