The Youtube version NOW HAS SUBTITLES.... I don't know if and how I can do it here. Check out my youtube if you want subs.

The template for this animation is the myth of the otter and the rabbit. Obviously I've replaced "Otter" with "Lizard." This is only because there seems to be a running gag with "lizard" having their fish stolen among native myth. The otter and the rabbit is the only instance where fish was stolen from someone other than lizard, so... I changed it to lizard.

So here it is Wrip and Calamity put aside their differences (grudgingly) for the sake of betterment... and when I say betterment I mean screwin' with ornery folk...No they won't drown... it's a shallow pool after it's mostly emptied....Can't have them dehydrating.^^0

Wow. I don't know why I didn't realize it was you who posted this. I kind of enjoyed this whole story. Thanks for making it.

I enjoyed the hell out of this. I love how the lizard and the bunny were two strong female characters who get shit done (always a major plus) and the animation and character design were beautiful. The music was great and very appropriate, and the humor was sharp.

The only thing that was a tad bit off was the voice acting, like others have said. I loved the lizard's accent, but I couldn't always understand her. And I didn't realize the bunny was supposed to have an accent until she said "quiet-like". (You might want to make the bunny's accent more prominent.) Also, I feel as if the whole thing was paced just a few beats too quickly- have a little more time between each plot point, joke, etc, so that it has time to sink in before the story moves for it. Not *much* more time- maybe like an extra second or two?

But I digress. You've got a great flash here, and I'd love to see some sequels. Well done.

I agree with the general consensus that the voice acting needs a little work. While I did enjoy the accents, the articulation could be cleaner. The voice quality also came off a little flat; the Rabbit has some decent range and dynamics to her voice but the lizard and mouse-men were lacking in comparison.

What did I like about the flash? The artwork was pleasing to the eye. Simple enough in most places to not be distracting but detailed enough in others to make the environment feel alive (the fire-bugs near the river stick out to me.)

The characters themselves were lively and you moved them through a variety of stances and movements. The way the rabbit carried herself was noticeably different from the lizard which lent each character more of their own unique identity.

My favorite part was when the lizard tapped her fork against the well. That entire sequence was superb - I watched it several times. The sing-song lines "Cry! I made you cry." with the low hum of the tuning fork inspired goosebumps in me. The choice of showing the lizards face, followed by landscape, followed by the top-down stance was very enjoyable.

In the end I Favorited this flash. I would love to see it again with cleaner voice acting.

Excellent job.
