** Warning! Some scenes might be found Very disturbing to some. **

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



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Same Level as Mac Beth i think

When i watched this one i was sure you animated a piece of literature written by Shakespeare.

Is it really your story???

Than you are very, very, very talented. Don't waste that. You can find more of that in the depts of your heart, i'm sure. And it needs to be called.
just don't ever forget that it's not you but what lies within you that counts for your work, and you will find more than you ever hold possible.

Oh, and for the "bad graphics": That's nonsense. More animation would have been bad for it, not good. Although it might really be a "couldn't make it better" -thing, it's perfect the way it is. It's like with black and white coloring - primitive but wonderful.

Put that one under wtf.

My title is not being mean, I just found it freaky, yet cool. I found your art awsome, the idea was unexpecting. and I really liked it.

Meep! No, no action!

Just read your author's notes and... Action is overrated!

What you managed to achieve here... Such a polite evil, childish murderous mischief... While I'm sure what you make would still carry all the wonderful qualities of this here piece... Would excessive action really do it any good?

But, well... Whatever works for you. If you plan animating Lilium's story further (and I do hope you do!), there probably wouldn't be much choice between whether or not to insert an action scene, if it is crucial to her story... Still...

Please, no action for action's sake - anyone can do that, and YOU can do better.

Something like what you've already done... A slow pace, not a word out of place, fear and thought.

((Note: Blame yourself for the torture you had to endure reading that semi-poetic stuff... You got me in the mood... ._.; ))

Oh that was nice

I admit I didn't 'get it' but I understood it a little bit. It was really nicely made, maybe make the text a little slower for slow readers. But that's about it Music fit the theme really well, the artwork was very nice, the effects matched with everything. Well done
