    [Description: Illustrations of the steps for creating a new mobile skin on the Archive of Our Own.]

    Too big? Too small? Whatever the case, if AO3's mobile font size is getting you down, here's how you can change it with the Archive’s skin system and a little CSS.

    1. Log in. If you don’t have an Archive of Our Own account, you can request an invitation.
    2. From the “Hi, user!” menu, choose “My Dashboard.”
    3. From your dashboard, choose “Skins.”
    4. On the My Site Skins page, choose “Create Site Skin.”
    5. Name your skin using the “Title” field. Skin names must be unique.
    6. In the CSS field, enter #outer { font-size: 12px; } (You can use any size you want. It is currently set to 14px and was previously set to 12px.)
    7. Select the Advanced section’s “Show” option.
    8. In the Conditions section, for Media, select “only screen and (max-width: 640px).” Depending on your device, you may also need to select “handheld.”
    9. Select “Submit” to save your skin.
    10. Select “Use” to apply your skin.

Now that April has left us for another year, we must also leave behind our April Showers fandom celebrations.
But that doesn’t mean that the fun is over! Below, we’ve collected the links to every fandom post we made, along with links to each fandom’s AO3 and Fanlore pages, so you can make sure you didn’t miss any of them. And the April Showers Recs (2014) collection has been filled with recommended works in dozens of fandoms, perfect to browse through while waiting for those May Flowers to appear.
We’d love to thank each and every one of you who reblogged, retweeted, liked, and clicked on any of our tweets or Tumblr posts … but that would take too long and would get in the way of your checking out all the great fandoms listed here!
So, without further ado, here are the celebrated fandoms of April Showers 2014.
