"It's more than a quirk. I've got to confess I'm addicted to work!"

Today is Workaholics Day, the holiday custom-made for Helen Morgendorffer. Helen is celebrating at work, of course, but only for a moment before she dives right back into those depositions.

This is also the anniversary of the episode "Mart of Darkness," which first aired on this day in 2000. Come for the gummy bears, stay for the command performance of Madame Butterfly in the automotive department.

Fanfic Update!
  • Collateral (Proposed IC: My Secret Baby), by SinisterExaggerator (COMPLETE!): " There was a narrowly arced smile on her face, and the innocent glints in her eyes seemed to betray no menace.

  • Of All The People That Won't Be Missed, by LongSnakeMoan (part 9): "Something in his words seemed to stir something in Jae and from behind Ryan he saw her silently and slowly move as everyone's attention was fixed on him and the cop."

  • The Punk and the Snark, by Shiva (part 11): "Dinner was very much the disaster that Daria had predicted it to be."

  • Ride (LLH Mini), by RLobinske (COMPLETE!): "Blumenberg said, 'Cadet Springer, Ms. Morgendorffer, good afternoon. Please say hello to my guest, Capt. John Young. John, Cadet Springer is here for training from USAES and Ms. Morgendorffer is a Legion representative.'"
