if you get a "congrats!" instead of a "thanks!" up above, I'll draw you any one OP char... that is, if you want me to draw you fanart. (if you don't want fanart, you can always ask for a short fanfic as well... ^^;;) (btw, this is what you call a "kiri-ban/zoro-ban request" which is a popular thing on jpns fanart sites...) if you're that lucky person, lemme know via one of the boards or via e-mail.

about the rotating menu (currently 10, more to come):
a moment of silence for Alabasta arc Vivi...
Sanji was a spur-of-the-moment scribble.
cosplay Papuwa outfit is, of course, Luffy. (this one is the reverse of normal, and there is a miniature contest - see the image in the fanart section for details)
cosplay Luffy outfit is modeled after the first version of the Dragon Ball outfit.
cosplay Vivi outfit is modeled after Vivi from Final Fantasy IX.
normal Luffy, Ben&Shanks, and Kuro&Jango splashes are in memory of Kaoru, courtesy of Andi from Let's One Piece!. If they catch your eye, please see them in full from the fanart section!
Scenery (which is the only choice if javascript is disabled) is from episode 95 of the manga (^_-)...
The secret splash is authentic (I consider myself extremely lucky), though I colored it myself with photoshop for the splash. The current probability of hitting the secret splash is 1/151200 (or rather, 1/15 for one particular minute of any given calendar week). Good luck! (and no cheating allowed! ^_^)
