Daisy Versus Mickey Ice, Part I
Daisy clutched her bleeding shoulder with her left hand. Her right hand hung at her side, also bleeding, and in excruciating pain. He had simply caught her off guard, and she could not believe she was about to die. Defeated, tired, and on her knees, she awaited the final shot that would end her life. As she resigned herself to it, she found that, aside from never seeing Rhonda, Garth, or Brandon again, she didn't really mind.
It had started in Carytown. She was on the sidewalk when a chunk of concrete exploded from the wall of a nearby building. A fraction of a second later, she heard the gunshot that caused it. The slug would have hit her in the head if she hadn't knelt to pick up a quarter. Next, everyone else on the sidewalk scattered, screaming.
She was immediately back up and in a ready position. She jumped out of the way of the next shot, drawing her ninja sword that was hard as a rock and sharp as a razor. The third shot

Daisy's Duel to the Death
Daisy was relaxing at Brandon's house (AKA Blayder Boy's Base of Operations) one afternoon. Brandon's mother had baked cookies and they were delicious. At first, Brandon had been embarrassed to admit that he still lived with his parents (even though he was neither an emancipated minor like Daisy, nor an adult yet.)
Daisy told him she wished she still had her parents. (Her father wasn't dead but she considered him so, and she had no idea where or even who her mother was.) He brought up his bisexuality, but she reassured him that it didn't bother her. The only thing that did secretly bother her was her fear that she was possibly leading him on. She really was starting to have feelings for him, but she was still not over Garth. His late-night street appearance and subsequent rescue of the giant alien slug reinforced that fact.
Daisy was pondering what she would do next when Brandon's mother came into his room.
"Brandon," she said in a t

Daisy Meets a Giant Alien Slug
Daisy was spinning a clay pot on her new potter's wheel one evening when she heard a shuddering rumble. The whole house shook with the force and Daisy only lost her grip for a split second, but that was all it took. Her pot was now ruined. This was the twelfth ruined pot of the night and now she was pissed.
Daisy stood up, wiped her hands on a rag, unplugged the wheel, then went outside to investigate. A massive gray and tan globular form was making its way down the street past her house. Amorphous lumps served as legs and produced the loud thuds as it shambled ponderously.
"Hey!" Daisy shouted.
The creature stopped, then turned what Daisy presumed to be a head her way. "Whaaaat?" it bellowed slowly.
"Could you please not stomp so loudly through the neighborhood? You're shaking people's houses!"
The thing's headlike appendage lowered slightly. "Sooorrrrrryyy," it bellowed deeply.
"Can you move more quietly?" Daisy asked, her ann

Daisy's Arts and Crafts Showdown
One fine day, Daisy was at an arts and crafts show with Rhonda and Brandon (who was not in costume as Blayder Boy). Neither he nor Rhonda were terribly interested in it, but Daisy was fascinated by the ceramics. She was pondering why she had never thought about it before when suddenly the ceiling of the venue exploded.
It rained metal, sheet rock, and other materials down on their heads. Daisy was at the ready, and when the dust cleared, a young blonde girl sat crouched on the floor, her eyes burning with hatred for Daisy. Her hair was in twin ponytails, and she wore a skintight black leather outfit, the top of which was strategically cut to safely reveal as much cleavage as possible.
"Bad Penny," Daisy intoned mirthlessly.
"Fresh out of the big house!" She turned to Brandon. "Blayder Boy, you're looking well."
Brandon remained inscrutably silent.
Bad Penny gave a look of mock heartbreak. "Awwww, don't wanna talk to me with yo

Daisy Slays Some Vampires
Brandon Phung, AKA Blayder Boy asked Daisy to go to Goth Night at his favorite club. Daisy had liked the goth music she had heard so far, so she agreed.
She put on a black dress, spike-heeled boots, white face powder, black lipstick, and black eyeliner. Brandon wore a black trenchcoat, black jeans, a black teeshirt, heavy heavy black boots, lots of chains, white face powder, black lipstick, and black eyeliner.
At the club, Daisy was reminded of her trip to Long Island where she met Juggernaut, Cueball, and Mary-Sue... or whatever their names were. There was no live band this night, just a DJ spinning Bauhaus, Nosferatu, Alien Sex Fiend, Type O Negative, and Cradle of Filth among others.
"I have a confession to make," Brandon shouted in her ear over the pounding music.
"What's that?" Daisy shouted back.
"I'm mixing business with pleasure. There are vampires here. We need to take them out."
"Who do I look like? Buffy?" Daisy was a bit

Daisy was working out one Saturday morning when she heard a knock at her front door. Still clad in her sweats, she went to answer it. She opened the door quickly and was ready for anything. She had no idea how much she was hoping it would be Garth until she saw it wasn't him.
Instead, a svelte Asian boy about Daisy's own age stood in the doorway wearing a black three-piece suit. She was loathe to admit it, but he was quite attractive.
"Hello, my name is Brandon Phung. Are you busy?"
"Daisy, at your service. I was just finishing my workout. How can I help you?"
"I'm doing a story about you for my school newspaper. Might I trouble you for an interview?"
Daisy was flattered. The Times Dispatch had run a blurb about her in the Metro section once, but no paper had actually asked to interview her.
"It's no trouble," Daisy responded.
"Great!" Brandon replied enthusiastically.
Soon they were seated in the den, Brandon asking questions abo
