Okay, Maybe That's Actually Al Roker, but the Same Principle Applies, Right?

Today we celebrate the tradition of the weather-controlling rodent who terrorizes us all with his super-powered shadow. Or something. All I know is, the little guy did see his shadow today, so that means six more weeks of winter. Looking out my window, I can believe that. Stupid snow.

Fanfic Update!

  • Abattoir Blues (2)- The Killing Moon, by LongSnakeMoan (part 2): "I sit on what could be possibly the dirtiest door step in New York, the grit from the dirt digs into my thighs and I stretch my legs into the last of the sunlight as Rosie passes me a cigarette."

  • Ah, Hell, by metameric1 (part 12): "She opened her eyes; feeling the weight on her bed alongside her. Turning her head, she traced his outline in her mind; she thought about how much of herself had been subtly altered to make a place for him in her life."

  • Alienation, by malakite (parts 4 and 5): "Daria slowly chewed her eggs as she watched her father watching her. Helen had left by the time Daria came down to eat, while Quinn was muttering something vaguely angry sounding under her breath as she rapidly typed into her phone." (Part 5)

  • Behind the Counter, by NightGoblyn (part 7): "Daria rolled her eyes and stood, putting her novel down on the desk and walking out of the back and behind the counter. She saw a thin, blond-haired man jogging towards the back of the store, and glanced over to the clock. Three-oh-five a.m. She rolled her eyes again. Great."

  • Daria's Petition (Scenes No Daria Fan-Fic Should Have: Do What Now?), by Shiva (COMPLETE!): "'So Daria...' 'Yes Jane?' 'How exactly is that petition you made to get Justin Bieber deported going?'"

  • High School Never Ends, by welltemperedclavier (parts 8 - 10): "'Hey, Daria, I'm going out for some pizza. You should come too.' 'Why?' 'I'd like to get to know the girl who's been writing my essays a bit better.'" (Part 9) (Part 10)

  • Is This Adulthood?, by SentrytheDefiant (part 1): "I was in awe of the girl, no, the woman sitting in the booth across from me. Years of feelings I thought long dead had come rushing back to me at full speed."
