Barch is doing her best impression of the late actress Marlene Dietrich, who was born on this day in 1901. I'm not sure the two women have anything whatsoever in common aside from this alter ego, but Dietrich was born in Germany and "Barch" sounds vaguely German, so there's that.

- Morning Ritual (Iron Chef: Quinn in 11th Grade), by Zetor (part 1): "Quinn's alarm started blaring the local top twenty station, gradually pulling her from her sleep. Yawning, she reached over to her nightstand, turned off the radio, and grabbed the book she'd left there the night before."
- Unnamed story (Iron Chef : MMORPG, Lawndale style), by Waylander (part 10): "Hello to all my readers. Today I managed to get a short interview with one of the people responsible for the well-known multiplayer role-playing game Realms of Altherra.
