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.

It was nice to find something belief-based on Newgrounds, eventhought I am not a Christian myself. However the appauling grammer and spelling within this flash was so cringe-worthy I'm afraid that it is only the novelty of a Christian video that got this anywhere. Overall, I found it incredibly disappointing and would suggest that when reading your work aloud, have friends listen to you so they may point out any awkward phrasing or grammar that you may have looked over as the writer.

One word: BARF

Seriously, have a few kids, get divorced, battle for child support and or custody then come tell me about your prince and princess ideals. GAWD.

whether you want to listen or not is totally up to you.

This movie is not very well written. I don't think anybody would actually enjoy watching it.

thanks for the post anyways! :)

Your voicing sucks, the metaphor is weak and the fact that you had to explain in the author's comments, showed that you're also not sure about your own work. Jesus deserves a better flash animation


exninja123 responds:

i do agree with jesus deserving a better flash animation
thanks for the post! :)

Yep, unfortunately princess did not realized that her "prince" is too perfect to actually exist.
"He wants you to open it, but he will wait for you (He's not gonna force you, because you have free will).
Jesus is patient, kind and eternal = Love" - I would dare too say that this prince in that case is totally selfish prick and monster, because if princess preferred to live without him, than prince would sent her to place of eternal torture after her death - because obviously that`s how "free will" works.
Or maybe "princess" should probably should find IRL guy instead of making out with imaginary prince which lives in her head.


exninja123 responds:

just to clarify, because of this eternal torture after death (hell), that is why the Prince (Jesus) came down on earth.
"free will" is your decision to allow him to enter and save your life.
in my opinion, i would rather live with the Prince than with IRL guys :)
