Quinn (Series)

From DariaWiki

Quinn is a series of post-canon fics by WildDogJJ. As the name implies, it focuses on Quinn Morgendorffer, following her on her senior year of high school, through college, and well into her adulthood. Much like Daria, the series has five seasons.

The stories are as follows:

Quinn, Season 1 (aka "Quinn, The Mini-Series")[edit]

The first season was originally going to be a 13 episode mini series about Quinn's senior year, but proved so popular that I decided to make it an ongoing series. It consists of the following...

1. Burger World: At the start of Quinn's senior year, Helen forces Quinn to get an after school job at Burger World. When Linda does the same to Sandi, they rope Stacy and Tiffany to work at Burger World as well. They all prove to be woefully incompetent at their new job.

2. New Horizons: With the Fashion Club officially disbanded, both Quinn and Stacy decide to broaden their horizons. Stacy joins the school paper while Quinn gets roped into the herculean task of tutoring Kevin.

3. Sibling Anxiety: Daria's having a hard time adjusting to college life and takes it out on Quinn. After a ton of soul searching both sisters come to a newfound understanding of and appreciation for each other, allowing them to put their sibling rivalry behind them for good.

4. Beauty Quinn: Both Quinn and Sandi participate in Ms. Li's latest fundraising scheme...a school beauty pageant.

5. When Fashionistas Attack: Tensions between Quinn and Sandi finally reach the breaking point, resulting in an epic showdown.

6. Sappy Holidays: The good news: Daria's home for Christmas. The bad news: So are Rita and Grandma Barksdale (first appearance of Emma Barksdale).

7. Intervention: Lindy's drinking has gotten so out of control that Quinn and the rest decide to stage an intervention.

8. Quinn's Addition: Grateful for Quinn's support a now sober Lindy sets her up with a guy who seems a little too perfect. Meanwhile, Stacy learns some very incriminating information about Ms. Li.

9. The Legend of Mad Dog Morgendorffer: Quinn has to do a biographic essay of a combat veteran. She decides to do it about her grandfather, the infamous Mad Dog.

10. Sisters Gone Wild: Quinn and Stacy decide to spend Spring Break in Miami and drag Daria and Jane along.

11. Acceptance : Quinn waits to find out if she got into Pepperhill. Meanwhile, a very lonely Sandi decides to make peace with Quinn.

12. There Can Only Be One: The three J's fight over who'll be Quinn's prom date.

13. Farewell, Lawndale High: Quinn and her friends prepare to graduate and proceed to the next chapter of their lives.

Quinn, Season 2[edit]

This one starts four years after the end of season 1.

1. Welcome To The Real World: Four years after high school Quinn is about to finish college and start her adult life.

(First appearance of both Trevor Anderson and Nicole Yagami)

2. Return To Lawndale: Both Daria and Quinn make an emergency visit home when Jake has a massive heart attack. While he survives this it will take almost a year for him to recover.

During the move Quinn meets a very interesting guy. (First appearance of Jim Carbone).

7. Happy Angstgiving: Quinn and Daria are forced to spend Thanksgiving at the Barksdale's mansion in Virginia. While there Quinn witnesses just how toxic Erin and Brian's marriage is.

9. The L Word: Quinn and Jim have each admitted to themselves that they're in love. They have a hard time telling each other how they feel, though.

10. Erin's Flight: Erin unexpectedly shows up at Quinn's and reveals that she's finally leaving Brian. Quinn agrees to let Erin stay until she can get her own place and even gives Erin a job at Morgendorffer Consulting. Shit hits the fan, however, when Grandma Emma shows up and tries to make Erin go back to Brian. (As of this episode Jake makes Quinn his full business partner and from then on the company is known as Morgendorffer and Daughter Consulting).

11. Of Glitter Berries And Awesome Boobage: Quinn and Jim go camping, during which Jim accidentally eats glitter berries. (Both the title and Jim's hallucinations are a deliberate homage to the South Park episode "Major Boobage")

12. We Need To Talk: Jim gets a promotion at work, but there's a catch. He has to move to Japan, which means breaking up with Quinn.

13. Priorities: Jim regrets his decision to leave Quinn for a job in Japan. Back in Lawndale Quinn misses Jim so much that she seriously considers following him to work things out. Before she can make good on this, though, Jim shows up at her place and explains that he quit his job and came back after deciding that being with Quinn's more important to him. Quinn is so moved by his professional sacrifice that she insists that Jim move in with her.
