* Subverted in ''Danse de la Mort: Mary's Child'', a pre-made story for ''VampireTheRequiem''. The main characters either live in New Orleans or are tourists come to experience Mardi Gras, and the story takes place just as Mardi Gras is ''ending''. Just to hammer the point home, the characters are at one point persuaded to anoint their foreheads with ash ([[CaptainObvious signifying Ash Wednesday]]).
