==Melody Powers in Fanfiction==
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. A few fanfics have Daria become the famed author of Melody Powers novels ("[[Of Lifestyle Choices and Definitions of Success]]," by [[Wyvern337]])., Thatwhich might result in Daria mightattracting bethe touchymost aboutunusual thesefans ("[[It's a Wonderful Life, Not]]," by [[Thomas]]). The Melody Powers worksmeme is consideredso pervasive that Daria writes these stories in various [[E.alternate A.universes]] ([[John Lane Smithseries]]'s, by "[[SoRichard LongLobinske]]), Aseven Menwhen CanDaria Breatheis no longer Daria but Darren ("[[Café Ineffective]]," by [[Bacner]]).
A possible (hilarious) reason why Daria writes Melody Powers stories is offered in [[Thomas]]'s "[[Sibling Rivalry]]." That Daria might be quite touchy about her Melody Powers works is considered in [[E. A. Smith]]'s "[[So Long As Men Can Breathe]]" and [[Renfield]]'s "[[Malice of Absence]]."
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. Other tales in this vein worth reading include [[Bob Marley]]'s "[[Melody's End]]."
In a few stories, Melody is a real person in the [[Dariaverse]] or somehow is brought to life therein. This might prove to be calamitous for all concerned (e.g., "[[Illusions: The Unswerving Punctuality of—]]," by [[CharlieGirl]] and [[et alia]]; [http://www.outpost-daria.com/artwork/sc/daria_vs_melody_powers.jpg "Daria vs. Melody Powers"] by [[S.C.]]).
