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.


To be honest, I completely loved this video. Narrative was preety bad, but the art style was original and the music fit in spectacularly. I could honestly care less about the fact that this is supposed to be a religious flash. But, after reading your descption, the whole LOVE story completely fell apart for me.
I thought the whole point of the story was that you will find your true love if you look hard enough, not to just give up on love and "Join" Jesus. I really wish i haddnt read your descritption, but i can only review your flash from a technical standpoint and respect your point of view.
I can see that you put time into making this and im sure that if i haddnt read the description i would have left with a smile on my face. Alas, im leaving feeling as if ive been scamed in some way or another.

sorry if you felt like that, but one thing i'll say is that i never said to "give up on love" i'm just implying that Jesus is here (and that's all) and to join Jesus is your decision if you want to or not
thank you for the review! :)

i hate romantic animations, but i think this made my mind change

exninja123 responds:

wow, thanks a lot! xD

Should've ended with a dick joke though!

exninja123 responds:

lol, nah
that would've ruined the mood :)

What a great little story! I loved this simple animation and the story genuinely made me happy. You actually did a great job as narrator. I wish you well on future projects.

thank you! :)

That was very courageous of you to post something religious.
I'm kind of disappointed at all the low scores because it was about religion.
I understand that the internet is filled with a lot of different types of people, but that doesn't make it okay to bash the animation because the story was against their views.
Instead, they should have rated the animation on what they thought thr story was about and the technical details.

Anyway, it was a very nice animation.
The voice acting wasn't all that good and the art was okay.
I like how the girl had been ignoring the letters. That tends to happen a lot. Hurr :P
