NightGoblyn is a relatively new author in the Daria fanfiction community. NightGoblyn has been diagnosed with "Writer's Sphere" - an acute malady that causes him to keep any where from two to four storylines active at a time. So far, most people seem to be willing to pat him on the head and wait for him to grow out of the condition. NightGoblyn recently achieved the title Angst Lord, and while he is a self-confessed TAG fanboy he has an appreciation of all dark fic.

In addition to serial stories, NightGoblyn occasionally works on one-shots that he refers to as 'Tales of the Irony Maiden.' The title preface being a tongue-in-cheek reference to the 'Tales of the Dark Knight' one-off storys about Batman by DC Comics.

NightGoblyn's works can be found at his Library, and are linked from the PPMB, and occasionally the SFMB.

NightGoblyn isn't really a goblin! He got that nickname from spending over half his life working third shift, and hanging out with other people who had the word 'goblin' in their nicknames.

NightGoblyn has every episode of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer memorized. Doesn't that make you feel better about yourself?

While most Angst Lords carry a red lightsaber, NightGoblyn's a bright silver-white color. When presenting it to him, Brother Grimace said, "It was once said that it is the brightest lights that cast the darkest shadows..."
