Daria fanfiction author of The Night Series (including "The Cell"). Posts under the name Alpacca Jo on fanfiction.net. A girl who writes angst but dreams of happy endings.
...bow chicka wow wow
thatLONERchick is a master of short, angst-packed tales with ambiguous or unresolved endings, sharing characteristics with vignettes. Her characters are sharply drawn, often in intense physical or emotional pain, and memorable.
thatLONERchick was born in Queens, New York and grew up in the Bronx and Brooklyn over the course of seventeen years and several moves. She began writing at the age of seven and though never developed anything approaching skill until her late teens, enjoyed every word and every line.
Twice during her Junior High career was she featured in her school news paper, once for a short story and illustration in the Halloween edition and again in the art section. She has not been formally published since.
She currently resides in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania and often resents the fact that cats have the tendency to wander in wailing at three in the morning, and cause her to lose her train of thought while writing. Like just now.
thatLONERchick entered Daria fandom late, though she has been a fan of the show since its first airing in 1997, when she was eleven years old. Her first fanwork was Winter Hearts, then a stand-alone tale of inner termoil. It was published on fanfiction.net in September 2007 under the name Alpacca Joe. Her first Paper Pusher's Message Board post was in response to an Iron Chef: Daria's Sorrow; the pre-canon tale entitled Now and Then was her second fan effort.
Some of her most recent contributions from a variety of genres include Interdimensional Dust Up on Twelfth of May, Tears of the Cynic, the conclusion of The Misery Chick (story) chapter two: Wishes, Searching for a New Hope, and a short crossover story, Promises In Flames.
