The Jungle – Chapter 1

  Daria and crew go on a photo exploration to find a lost tribe in South America. The Jungle – Part #1 by Dr. Mike Disclaimer: I once again thank Canadibrit for the use of her characters AP and Lynn that exist in her universe of Daria fanfiction. Just for the record, this planned series really mucks up her timeline so it should be taken as completely unofficial from her work. I came up with a story line that involved her characters and the ones from the show and have just gone with it. I’m just here telling a story. Another Disclaimer: There are a few choice words in the fic that follows. I believe they are used correctly and without overdoing them. Just be fair warned. Dr Mike does an introduction: The scene slowly lights up to see a female hand holding a pic resting on the strings of a lead electric guitar. After a beat, the hand starts strumming the strings with the unseen band behind her starting also. We hear Lynn Cullen with Mystic Spiral singing the Guns N Roses song, “Welcome to the Jungle.” The scene changes to show the following with the music continuing in the background: *Jake taking a picture of Daria, Lynn, Quinn, Vincent and Jane Lane, an unknown blond lady wearing a leather jacket with a large number of patches standing in front of a pile of boxes and other supplies. *An over the top view of a large, green jungle. An old World War 2 type bomber appears under the camera heading away from the viewer. A large amount of smoke is coming from one of the engines and it appears the plane is having problems. *Daria and Jane standing in front of a stone statue of a naked jungle female with big garbanzos. They appear to be standing in some type of underground tomb. After a beat, a disgusted looking Lynn reaches out to the other 2, grabs a hand from each and places them on the statue’s front. *Lynn trying to use a cell phone. It appears that it doesn’t work as she throws it against a tree and it shatters. Vincent Lane, who is standing behind her, doesn’t look too happy about what Lynn just did. *Daria, Jane, Lynn, Quinn, and Vincent Lane standing in a row staring open mouthed at something off screen above the camera. After a second, they all pull back and stare at Daria in shock. *Daria, Jane, Lynn, and Quinn taking big bites out of some type of meat that has been cooked on a stick. Vincent Lane walks into view with the cooked head of a snake also on a stick. Daria, Lynn and Quinn turn quickly as they try to throw up the snake meat they have just eaten. Jane looks at the snake meat she has with renewed interest and takes another bite. *A view of Lynn and Mystic Spiral rocking on a stage with this song. (Gotta promote the band somehow, right?) *All five standing in a hut trying to wake someone up who is lying on the ground. After a second, someone who looks like Trent pops up dressed in jungle clothing and looks at them completely lost. *Lynn walking thru the jungle looking really, really disgusted. After her appears a line of young jungle people. They all have something purple on as clothing. *Quinn sitting on a log in front of a roaring campfire. She looks like she has been crying and Daria is sitting besides her holding her hand trying to be supportive. Lynn, Jane,...
