A fanfic written as a TV episode or movie script. This format was more often seen in the earlier years of the fandom, while the Daria show as still being aired. Some very long Daria series have been entirely written in script form (see examples below).

No commonly agreed-upon format exists for the way in which scriptfics are presented. Some include detailed stage directions, some are structured like actual animated episodes (even having commercial breaks and fake commercials), and some are exceedingly simple and spare in design.

Debate exists at times in Daria fandom over the relative merits of scripts vs. prose. Among the positive aspects frequently cited are a tight focus on dialog, and character development through the spoken word, both of which are often lacking in prose.
