Unexpected Hookup is an ongoing alternate universe created by Shiva from a short "Iron Chef" that was ironically created by the same author in which Daria Morgendorffer runs into Ronnie Floyd at a party and the pair begin to bond.
In Unexpected Hookup, Ronnie runs into Daria at one of Brittany Taylor's parties in the laundry room where he learns that her car broke down and her trademark coat was ruined by a partygoer. She remembers that he stood up to Quinn and her demands and as they begin to talk they find that there is more in common between them than at first glance.
After the party, Ronnie and Daria begin to date, which sets in motion a series of events that begin to change not just everything around them but their own personal perceptions of each other.
