15/04/09 More News: It's still happening.

05/08/06 Additional News: I've updated the file with a new one. New fonts, less faulty grammar and replaced the old Lilium *opening version* song with the extended one. The transfer went... Swell. =) Please have a look.

Edit: Ok... Things are going too far. I had no IDEA where this submission would end up after posting it here on Newgrounds. And honest to God, I am overwhelmed by the response that I've got. I try to keep up with the reviews and mails that you send me. And if you sent a mail and I havn't responded, I am sorry... There are just so many. T.T

Based on the amount of reviews, I feel there is need for some (even further) explanation of stuff:
1. Some of you feel that the story is lacking and has no real substance. I understand this, since I had to cut it short because of the length of the song (which I had to edit and generaly murder to make it twice as long). The text fly by fast because of the same problem.
2. And as for the gory part... I try to keep open minded about things in the world and I dont get upset easily... Things I find minor offensive, others might find alot worse. And if you open your eyes a bit you'll realize that things like these actually DO happen.
3. Lilium... She's a special girl. Try to have that in mind before you judge her.
4. The Shadow and the Brother... There's a reason why he wanted her brother the way he was.
5. I didnt have any political thoughts with this movie... Whatever happens in the movie does not have anything to do with my political views on anything. Its just a story.
6. I am not a Goth. I am not Emo. I just like writing stories. I hate being labeled.
7. I did write the dialogue... Though it was a very bold move since I've never rhymed in all my life and English isnt my native language. (I'm Swedish for those who are curious.)
8. The song is from the Anime, Elfen Lied. At first when I saw the anime I was a bit stunned. But I loved it in a non-sadistic way (if that's possible). Some of you say my story is identical (or near it) to Elfen Lied's story... Which I find odd. Only similarity might be the excessive violence, other than that... No.

9. ... I am working on a sequel... And it will be alot different from this one.

*End of Edit*

This is my first Flash creation ever and it took about 4 days to complete. I had never before seen Flash in action so I pretty much learned as I went by... Never before have I sceamed that much and cried because the software didnt work with me... Still the thing came out pretty ok.
There isnt really any "animation" in this piece... Its more of a slideshow of sorts, telling of a very important event in the young girl, Lilium's, life.
The main thought of the movie was for it to work as a presentation for my RPG character (regular D&D style... Paper and Pen)... There are some written dialogue in there... Read fast! The script was longer than the song would alow... Enjoy!

Promise my next uploads will contain alot more animation and alot more action. ^^d

4096 characters shouldn't be enough.

This was an excellently made flash. Though there was no action or movement, the slide-show style blended incredibly well with the story, and the music as well. The music itself seemed to change with the mood of the story as if it had been tailored for it, so great selection. Aside from the great quality of the flash's making, the story was wonderful. It seems to show the persuasiveness somebody can have, which is a theme that I, personally, have always adored. The dialogue between the characters making them seem totally at peace also help with the mood and style. Though there is murder, and though there is hatred, the entire thing gives off a feeling of tranquility. It also makes it seem much as though the violence aspect had nothing to do with it. More of, the shadow wanting her brother, and the only way for that to be achieved was by killing her mother. Not so much as her hating her family. Why else would she be mad at the shadow afterwards? Also, setting up for what seems to be like a wonderful series. With the little devil that is Lillium going on a journey to destroy the thing that had her kill her family, it seems like a wonderful adventure that is simply waiting to begin. Although, sadly, with the rate of which things are going, I am wondering when this series will finish, and if I will even remember this flash. As ingenious as it is dark, and knowing I will forever appreciate such things, of course. I only hope that things can speed up later. As for rating:

Graphics - 8: Beautifully drawn characters, and a very nice style to them.

Style - 9: The slideshow-style presentation was great for this particular piece.

Sound - 9: The music molded right to the theme and seemed bound to the current mood of the story.

Violence, Interactivity, and Humor, I would all think of as irrelevant. Although it has Violence, I never saw it as the point, but rather as something that was simply necessary. With interactivity, it has a replay button that works, and I don't think this needs anything else. It is short enough not to need scene selection, pause, or any other such function. And this does not at all seem like a comedy.

This is the second best story I believe I have ever witnessed in my short lifetime, and I am only astonished and ashamed that I can not write more on such a beautiful piece of work.

People find this review helpful!
