DeviantArt Customisation ExplainedThis article, is my attempt to help answer a lot of questions I get from people asking about various ways of customising your dA experience.

Be My Valentine~?
The air was blowing gently, like it would in almost any shoujo manga. Hansel walked into the café—Always the first to arrive. The entire café had turned pink, white, and red. He thought it to be quite appropriate whether everyone liked it or not. Flipping the light switches, a peculiar sound could be heard. The clicking of gears? A mischievous grin went across the store managers face, “Well…” He walked onto the center of the floor, “I hope everyone enjoys what I have in store for Valentine’s month~” He giggled, “If not, I might just have to snap their necks.”
