I'm grappling with the notion of the consumation of
this relationship. Handled well it could be great
story if that love was recripocated (or even if on
Carlow's part is was just lust)*

I was about to point out the same - DWJ is ahead of us

Getting back to the original (and I use that word
advisedly) piece of Fanfic. I'm rather surprised to
find the third of the characters called Mary rather
than Jane or Quinn. Daria's personality as well as her
name seems to come from the TV series of the same
name. (at least in the small bit I was able to read)
