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.
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.*

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 kind of late for Valentine's Day, but this one is one of the top love storys with lesson ever made. Great job!

thank you! :D

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.

thanks for the critique! :)

I will admit. I was tempted briefly to downovote it for the overarching message (as a scientist and an atheist, I find the idea that to be happy you have to let Jesus into your life vaguely offensive). Buuuut.

It's a well done flash. There's some minor typos in your subtitles, some small little things that might be tweaked here and there, but overall, it's excellently done, with good choice of music and well done symbolism. And so, despite my personal opinions, you receive 5 stars.

exninja123 responds:

wow, thank you! :)

While I don't believe in God myself, I think this is a pretty nice flash. Your voice fits the overall atmosphere perfectly (though the quality of the sound could have been better) and you can't argue with the animation. I prefer to think of the Prince as a metaphore for "love" rather than Jesus, but it's fun to see such a modern version of a story that's so old.

Keep up the good work, this really made my day.

exninja123 responds:

thank you! :D

wow...i think this is the first flash, about the love of jesus, which isnt actually trolling....never expect to see something like that on newgrounds :3

keep up your great work sister and dont forget: everybody who blames you is at last thinking about jesus/god and his life ^^

exninja123 responds:

haha, i was actually thinking the same thing!
thanks! xD
