Having Daria write Melody Powers stories has become a staple in fanfiction writing. In [[Richard Lobinske]]'s [[Last Summer]] and [[Falling Into College]] stories, Daria published a total of four Melody Powers stories with an action pulp magazine called ''[[Literature in Action]].'' Daria has a Melody Powers story published in "[[Prayer for a SAINT]]" that causes unexpected problems.
 
Fanfic writers occasionally try their hand at writing Melody Powers stories as they imagine Daria would do them. [[Galen Hardesty]] probably gave the best rendition with "[[Blood Oath of Patriots]]" and "[[Blood Oath of Patriots II: By Any Other Name]]." [[Mystik Slacker]]'s "[[Melody Powers in 'Butcher, Baker, Cancer-stick Maker']]" and [[Wyvern337]]'s "[[Academic Imprisonment (Wyvern337 tale)|Academic Imprisonment]]" are also excellent, and [[Mahna Mahna]]'s "[[The Last Words Heard]]" has a perfectly wicked ending.
 
Sometimes in fanfiction, Melody is written as a [[self-insertion]] or [[Mary Sue]] of Daria herself. Melody might even ''be'' Daria in disguise (e.g., "[[Alias: Melody Powers]]," by [[Kendra Steiner]]; "[[Melody Powers a.k.a. Daria MorgandorfferMorgendorffer]]," by [[James Scanlan]]). [[Mystik Slacker]]'s [[True Cynicism]] tales have Daria make a shocking discovery that leads her into a life not unlike Melody's. (This also happens in "[[Prayers for a SAINT]].")
 
In a few stories, Melody is a real person in the [[Dariaverse]] or is brought to life therein.
