The Birth of Jake

Jake's doing a slightly disturbing recreation of The Birth of Venus in honor of the birth of Sandro Botticelli on this day in 1445. I'm no expert on art, but I think the boxer shorts kind of ruin the effect. On the other hand, Daria and Quinn would much prefer he keep them on.

Less known to fandom, aside from those brave and/or sadistic fans who played the game, is that Jane also made an appearance as Venus in Daria's Inferno. Fully clothed, in case you're curious.

Fanfic Update!
  • The Appointment, by elainefr (part 6): "'Hello?' 'Hey's Trent.' Momentary silence; she'd seen the Lane name come up and had assumed that it was Jane since she had went home for the weekend- again."

  • Calls the Tune (Daria and the Gang Thread II), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "'Are you done?' Jane asked. 'Coming,' Daria said. She dodged from behind the tombstone and made her presence known."

  • Consequences, by Zetor (COMPLETE!): "Brittany tried to focus on the worn romance novel in her hands, but just found herself reading the same sentence over and over again. With a sigh, she got up off her bed and replaced the book on the shelf."

  • From Both Sides, by mailorderannie (part 1): "The knock on the apartment door caused Daria to grumble as she rolled out of bed. 'Tuesdays are for sleeping in until noon!' she muttered as she threw on a robe."

  • The Gonzo Papers, by Two-Eyed Charlie (parts 1a and 1b): "'Thanks for coming in, Ms. Morgendorffer.' 'Thanks for giving me the hope of a constant paycheck and more than half a meal a day.'" (Part 1b)

  • The Great War of the Dale, by Wassersauefer (part 1): "A lot of things could be said about Jojaje. First of all, Jojaje was of course not the real name for this individual... um, creature. Yes, creature was perhaps the best way of describing him. Them. It was confusing sometimes."

  • Someone had to do it, by Rémi (parts 6 and 7): "This was an uneventful night. Daria and Jane were sharing a pizza at Pizza King : it had quickly became an habit for both of them. - So, what about those rumors ? asked Jane between two bites." (Part 7)

  • Telling Tales Out of School, by Kristen Bealer (part 2): "The next stop was a girl David had tutored unsuccessfully the previous summer: Stacy Rowe. He remembered her as willing to learn but unable to get past her debilitating panic attacks over...well, everything. He rang the doorbell and waited."

  • top baller, by rvgonzal (part 3): "Casa lane/ Janes massive loft suite. Janes artwork is displayed throughout the walls of suite along with many of her sculptures decorating the rooms. The rooms are beautifully painted with warm brown colors and plush carpeting."
