==Differences from canon==
The timeline jump from 1997 to 2010 has caused many facets of the series to get changed. Some of these are minor cosmetic changes, like country-western bar [[Mad Dawg's]] being a hippie bar, more 'out' LGBT secondary characters, or a version of "[[Citizen Butt-head]]" having Obama visit [[Highland High]] instead of Bill Clinton; or plays on the canon (Jake yelling about his dad is Jake on a bluetooth yelling ''at'' his dad). Internet saturation allows [[Mystik Spiral]] to have greater reach (and Upchuck to get even more porn), and greater medical advances mean [["Mad Dog" Morgendorffer]] is still around.
 
Major differences come from the War on Terror starting years in the past and the then-recent 2008 recession - Lawndale High is now even ''more'' security intensive, Jodie Landon starts out as a Tea Party hardcore (spinning off her family's canon conservatism), [[Tommy Sherman]] went into the army, the Sloanes are going to Lawndale (initially) due to financial hits to [[Grace, Sloane, and Page]], and the sluggish economy looms over much of the story. (As the years go on, this "Modern Day Daria" take runs increasingly prey of the [[Datedness of Daria]])
 
Daria is mostly the same as she was in canon but more confident, having never had the equivalent events of "[[Boxing Daria]]" and having grown up navigating a violent, chaotic environment. The other Morgendorffers are not quite as different as they seem at first, despite being ultraviolent, anarchic, beer-swilling superpunks: Helen is still a driven lawyer and matriarch, Jake is still a good-natured bumbler with angry outbursts, and Quinn, despite leading an army of backgrounders rather than being in the [[Fashion Club]], still wants to be popular (in her chosen clique) and be noticed.
 
==Original characters==
 
* Jasper Ewing: Maths teacher at Lawndale High, a man so boring you'll forget he exists by the time you finish this sentence.
 
* Mohammed: Angela Li has him on a watchlist, which he's just grown to accept as the way the world is by now. He's a wheeler-dealer and fixer around school, the man you want to get in on the will-DeMartino-die pool.
 
* Superintendent Pascal: The superintendent from ep 23 to 41. A sneaky, blatantly corrupt man, he tried to stabilise Lawndale High and, if and when that didn't work, pin the blame on anyone else. He got the job due to some level of competency (and because the President of the Board of Education really hated him).
* Jim Vitale, a character originally from Scissors MacGillicutty's [[Where's Mary Sue When You Need Her?]] that became one of the most popular and most used antagonists in Daria fanfic, makes an appearance in "Anarchy in the Lawn-D", taking care of business as only he can.
 
* "Dance Noon" was based off a suggestion by [[Roentgen]], about touching on misogyny in the punk scene.
* A scene in "A Headbutt of Dollars" where Daria and Tom are participating in cross-dressing role play was inspired by the Scent of a Man and Scent of Humiliation fanart by [[breitasparrow]].
 
* A scene in "A Headbutt of Dollars" where Daria and Tom are participating in cross-dressing role play was inspired by the Scent of a Man and Scent of Humiliation fanart by [[breitasparrow]]. The hippie bar was a suggestion from Roentgen.
 
* The teacher Ms Onepu is taken from J-D's gender-swap serial "[http://thepaperpusher.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=32505 Not So Different]".
