Rain on Your Parade is the seventh "episode" of C.E. Forman's Lost Season One (of The Lost Seasons series), written in fall of 1998. It is the first of two parts. Like all of Forman's Lost Season episodes, it is written in quasi-script form with three Acts and commercials.
Lawndale is holding its annual "Lawndale Days" festival, which turns the entire downtown into a carnival with a parade, craft booths, and a band competition. Several plot threads are woven throughout the story, which includes nearly everyone in the Seasons One and Two Dariaverse. In the main plot, Daria is reluctant to participate in the festival, until Jodie begs her to play the cymbals in the school band quintet. Daria consents, not realizing what her presence will do to Trent's chances in the band competition. Quinn and Sandi, meanwhile, get competitive in the beer tent, and Jake runs off to have the fun he never had as a kid.
