Love… It can bring out the best or the worst in us. One of the strongest feelings, along with hate (that can't be a coincidence…). Naturally, it deserved its own holiday! This year too, Saint Ballotwine will play games with your heart. Find out what you could gain in return!

Once upon a time, there was a Sram who felt terribly hollow inside. He was tired of feeling nothing but an icy void in the space between his ribs, and had just one great hope in life: to someday have a heart. Stealing one from a defeated enemy, making one out of modeling clay, even asking a Sadida to plant a seed of love in his chest: he'd tried everything, but none of it had worked. None of his attempts to become someone who could love and be loved had ever paid off…

That is, until the day when he heard that a famous alchemist named Otomai had really bombed his latest experiment. Or should we say, "bonbon-ed" it… While preparing Ballotwine chocolates to encourage gobballs to reproduce, he had accidentally unleashed an epidemic of a sentimentally transmissible disease: chocrosis. Without a moment's hesitation, the Sram set out to catch it himself by attacking a gobball that had been infected with the disease, hoping to find the much-coveted heart within its chest. But then the unthinkable happened: the Sram fell head-over-heelbones in love with the gobbette he'd been about to fight! His heart all aflutter (even though he still didn't actually have one), he realized that in the end, it didn't matter if he was empty inside as long as he was overflowing with love…

Lady-killers, man-eaters, and gobball-hunters, take heed: love is knocking at your door again!

From 9 a.m. (Paris time) on Tuesday, February 14 until 9 a.m. on Tuesday, February 21, life in the World of Twelve – and gobballs specifically – will be rosy. Chocrosis, a curse resulting from a failed experiment by the famous alchemist Otomai, has struck our adorable woolly friends once again. If you decide to attack them, just be aware that you too will wind up looking as soft and pink as a roll of extra cottony three-ply toilet paper. But don't panic – so far, no other negative side effects have been reported.

So act fast, before love gets away from you!
