I made this for Valentine's Day.
A short narrative animation about a princess who recieves a special letter.

Sorry for the awful voiceacting, hopefully I will get better in the future.
------EDIT-----------
Thank you for watching! Thanks for the compliments and critiques! :)
Wow! Thanks Newgrounds for the Daily 3rd place and for the frontpage appearance! :D

(READ THIS!!!!!!)
*This may bother others (I didn't realize about this issue, sorry for those who felt tricked) but this movie is about the person of Jesus Christ (not religion).
If you are bothered by that fact, I am sorry but THIS is what the story IS.*

(SPOILERS!)
I noticed some people didn't understand the story, and to be honest, it may be hard for one to understand.
So here's what the story actually meant (sorry for any grammatical errors):

This story is NOT about love in a romantic way, I'm talking about REAL love. Unconditional love shared between a parent and a child.

The princess symbolize the everyday person, you and me (gender does not really matter)
She is alone and gives letters to her prince.
I represented the six princes as her family, friends, boyfriend, money/fame, drugs and religion but overall I just wanted to convey anything that one seeks for in life.
And obviously, how life goes on, everything that the princess (we) admire rejected us, and left us hurt, in pain.
Pain leaves a scar in us whether it's emotional or physical (as if it almost felt like you were stabbed on the back, or pierced by a sword). Hence I showed that pain in a physical manifestation of the princes stabbing the princess.

Here's where I placed the gospel:
"The Prince" is Jesus Christ.
The letters the princess recieves and rejects is Jesus' voice.
Despite that, we still try to find the other prince (which was foolish because a prince, rather, "The Prince" was right there behind the door)
It's when the princess, comes to the point of crisis (the lowest point) to make her realize that she had no prince to give letters to anymore (have anyone to seek out for to love/ be loved).
Then she realizes the letters (voice of Christ) in her life.
When she listens, she hears "The Prince" knocking on the door.

"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me." (Revelation 3:20)
The Prince is here, waiting for you, knocking at the door of your heart.
He wants you to open it, but he will wait for you.
Jesus is patient, kind and eternal = Love

Jesus is waiting for you to come join him, so you can have eternal life, a neverending tale, an awesome journey to his kingdom.
He wants to go there with you, together.

In the story, "The Prince", Jesus was the princess' seventh prince.
7 is the common number used in the gospel.
I based if off from the biblical story of the Samaritan Woman from John 4.

i find this one rather interesting not bad animation and i do think i under stand the meaning of all that lol however i think you should have worked on the voice acting a bit more and instead of tweeking the KH song should find a better one with a deeper feeling that would go perfectly with this other then my normal ranting of doooooooooooon nice job and what not.

Nexis my good lad even though sadness and pain and regress is always their sometimes leting your self to balive in a highpower can sometimes ease the pain and the sufering (sorry for bad spelling ya'll) nut i dont todaly disagree with the their isnt really a happy ending for every one, but i do think we all i mean every one in the entire freaking world to grow up and start treating people with some respect and showing a sister and brotherly love (Funky thing to say ey?) but every one has a right and if willing they can try and try to spreed the so call'd Foolish Beliefs and the kid might not be to far off from the point.

other then my pointless rambling i shall give this a 5/5 cuz hey it was good and i liked it =P

You've caused quite the stir. God sees that and you are blessed for sharing such a crucial part of the gospel that Jesus wants a relationship with you, not a religion. I was seriously about to quote the scripture from revelations that you shared because of the prince knocking in the end. Now I know that God put it in the hands of men, by divine inspiration, to write the most amazing love letter which is what the prince kept sending to her. The BIBLE. But most impacting is the Gospels which is about His love for her (US!!). I knew from the very beginning this video was about Jesus! I love my King!! He's so good to me. He did exactly what you are talking about in your video. I would constantly seek my approval and love elsewhere. I got physically hurt, broke my foot/ankle, and He healed me. I thought that he hated me!! Because of all the religion and legalism that ignorant people spread around saying that I couldn't be saved, or healed!, unless I came clean first, but he didn't hate me. He healed me in spite of my not liking Him. He says in His word to come as you are and to let Him clean you because our efforts to clean us only make us more filthy. Only God can clean us up! And he loves us unconditionally aaalll the way through it.. Anyways. Sorry for taking up so much space! I am just so blessed by this!! <3 I just thank God for you and that you would have the boldness to continue doing what you are doing. I thank God you are blessed and highly favoured and have a good understanding. You are precious jewel! Alright!
I love the animation, too. Great way of structuring it all!

Two of the things I love the most in one flash! Jesus and Kingdom Hearts! It was unclear at first that it wasn't a romantic story, but I loved it nevertheless! I feel lonely a lot lately, but God has always been there to help me ;D
