So She Really Did Make a Dainty Garland for Her Head and Sing!

Be sure you don't miss Quinn performing "Madama Butterfly," which premiered on this day in 1904. She'll be singing in the automotive department at Payday, and while you're there could you pick up some bootlaces and barbecue sauce?

Speaking of singing, today is also the anniversary of the musical episode "Daria!," which aired on this day in 1999. There weren't any people dressed as Vikings, but I'm pretty sure there weren't any in "Madama Butterfly" either.

Fanfic Update!
  • Bathroom breaks, by Indigo (COMPLETE!): "In a reversal of their usual routine, Jane Lane headed for the bathroom at the Zon and her friend Daria Morgendorffer stayed to watch the end of Mystik Spiral's first set."

  • The Cynic and the Polyglot (Two Fluff Pieces for Valentine's Day Weekend), by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "'That's not possible because you don't have, eap...' Daria fell silent. Habits are powerful things and Daria just barely stopped herself from mouthing the reflexive snark which would have easily rolled off her tongue a year or more past."

  • Hana Hou, Pt 2, by metameric1 (part 5): "Where did you come from, really? Daria leaned against the girl's bedroom doorframe as her eyes adjusted to the darkness."

  • James the Lesser Presents Vinny Lane, by James the Lesser (part 30): "Vinny is at the zoo with Trent. He stares at a tiger and it stares back at him. 'I know what I'm going to do.' 'Ok.'"

  • Mysteries of Lawndale 03: Night of the Coffee House, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "It was late at night in Lawndale. It was quiet. It wouldn't remain quiet for much longer."

  • The Punk and the Fashion Plate (Two Fluff Pieces for Valentine's Day Weekend), by EntrancedCat (COMPLETE!): "'Monique, kick it off and let's kick ass,' Gretchen nodded as she commanded me to get the party started. I gave Gretch what I hoped was my sweetest smile." (Part 2) (Part 3)

  • Something Old, Something New, by Princess_Pasta (COMPLETE!): "'I can't believe I invited you to this'. Jane Lane stood on the Morgendorffer's doorstep like she had several times before though this was no ordinary circumstance."

  • You'll Know When You Have Kids of Your Own, by metameric1 (part 10): "Les Michaelson put the old Telecaster down in a stand and stretched. 'Awesome track, Les,' came the word from the control room. Sam, the engineer, flashed him a thumbs up from behind the glass. 'Take five.'"
