"The Bells" By Edgar Allan Poe as sung by Phil Ochs

"At one time there was nothing but darkness, and then the Raven brought fire."

This, my dearies, is what I like to call a fiddly project. Something I work on if I can't work on other things for whatever reason, If I don't put it up now I shall never stop fiddling. Speaking of fiddling.... Making this thing into a Swf was taxing if ever there was tedium to be had! But I did really want to upload it here. You'll notice there were certainly some differences betwixt this version and the youtube version. Sometimes it was better others it's worse. Whichever you prefer.

To the discerning myth fan, you may notice reference to several myths, but to everyone else, do not worry one does not need to have knowledge of these things to see what happens;

Evil black ooze want to consume everything, A raven and three monkeys fight the evil.

Those who watch me on DA warlord-of-noodles.deviantart.com/ may be familiar with Xipe Totec (Lady Murder), Xochipilli (The Flower Prince) Xochiquetzal (The Flower Empress), and Ixtlilton (The Healer), As well as some of the other fuzzbutts there. As you may have noticed I am borrowing VERY LOOSELY from Aztec Myth and Northern Native American Myth on this one and I plan to do a commentary to explain why I did what I did from a scholastic point of view, but you don't really need it. Mostly, it's just some fantastical battle what I wanted to make fun to watch to a song I adore by a poet with a lovely talent. If you want explanations to things, start reading my Brother Swan comic, I'll touch on it eventually.... Also the blackness is called "The Black Tezcatlipoca"... if anyone cared

This is a battle that will have some reference on most stories I shall be doing that take place on Scourosi like Brother Swan warlordofnoodles.comicgenesis.com . And especially in a prequel to Brother Swan I shall be calling "No Evil."

No matter how many times I watch this it still gives me chills. The way you used the song makes it powerful, the animation is great, even if it isn't the smoothest, it is so beautifully designed it hardly matters. It keeps in sync with the music perfectly and that's a very difficult thing to do in any animation. I love your work, its always beautiful and magical. Please keep honing your craft!

press x to pay respects for the bird lady who was using fire magic also its still good for 2017 standards

That was so freaking awesome! :D Love it when people get creative like this.

Confuseingly.....awsome

Gorgeous, outstanding work!
