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.

thanks! :)
well honestly, you're supposed to see the prince as a father/parent figure (so the gender shouldn't be an issue)

Excellent. The simple animation was great and the message was classic. This site needs more animators like you if you know what I mean.

@Hoboweasel
Sometimes videos get posted on newgrounds that aren't just stories in and of themselves. Sometimes videos are here to share a message, and the best way to get that message through is through simple measures. Like Leonardo Da Vinci said: "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication."

There have been so so many videos on the site that blatantly shove things in your face, there really is nothing in this video that wouldn't make you think of the message if you never heard it before.

@TharosTheDragon
You can argue that Christianity is a religion, however even a quick glance at the differences between it and most every other religion that exists, you would know that it is completely different. While most religions are about all powerful gods that made humans so that they could rule over them, the God of the bible made humans so that he could love them. In all honesty if any religion wants to embrace the concept of religion, then no religion should be thinking of their religion as a religion, as by their definition, religion would be a thing that isn't true, something that is made by man, as they use that word to define other religions they are not a part of and that they think are just plain old not true.

Not believing somebody elses religion does not make you a bigot or intolerant. We do not hate people of other religions, that is a common misconception. You are not a bigot if you think that all murderers are bad people, because you know it's wrong, yet somebody still might argue against you, that murder is ok from a certain perspective, and that just isn't how the world works. Like it or not, one religion is right and all the other ones are wrong, and I personally believe the right one is Christianity. Telling others they are wrong is not being bigoted, I see people telling Christians we are wrong all the time, yet they are seen as smart, wise, knowledgeable people while a Christian can't say the words "Jesus loves you" without being written off as intolerant or racist or something.

i added this video to my faves because i liked the video how i saw it. after seeing it, i scrolled down, read your comment about the story and began to think. are you christian? i ask because i dont know anymore what religions my beliefes are. i belief in reincarnation, in carma but i beliefe not that god is almighty or even a human (he/she/it could be a stone or a tree or an animal) and i belief that hell and heaven are on earth (after i have seen constantine, it could be possible).

good and touching movie, keep on the good work.
