mNo edit summary
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. This has become an interesting sub-subgenre. [[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 [[ficlet]], "[[Melody's End]]."
 
Sometimes in fanfiction, Melody is written as a [[self-insertion]] or [[Mary Sue]] of Daria herself ([[Wyvern337]]'s "[[Academic Imprisonment (Wyvern337 tale)|Academic Imprisonment]]"). Melody might even ''be'' Daria in disguise (e.g., "[[Alias: Melody Powers]]," by [[Kendra Steiner]]; "[[Melody Powers a.k.a. Daria Morgendorffer]]," 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]].")
