Creator's Comments:"I threatened to put this together, but was disheartened to learn there is no Victorian hearth/study stock background at the right height. I also didn't mean for it to have the harsh lighting my early manias were infamous for, but, well, I ended up relying on ambient lighting and gradients that sort of pointed things that way.
