Novel-length post-canon Daria fanfic by The Angst Guy, with strong elements of fantasy and horror.
Penny Lane returns from Central America with an artifact of enormous power, which soon changes the lives of everyone who comes into contact with it - as an ancient god starts to test the characters and reveal to them who they really are, whether they can handle it or not. The story focuses in particular on Penny, Monique, Jane, Daria, and Tom Sloane.
Parts of this were originally going to be in the unfinished fanfic "Bipolar II".
