This took me so long. ;n; I hope I've pleased the Alerian gods.

I love working with flash. At first I thought I'd hate it, but there are so many possibilities. For example, in this flash alone I have three basic ways to make a "panel" (I say panel because I think of it as more of a comic than an animation). I have the beginning which is photoshop lineart colored in flash, the middle which is *coughanimationcough* done in flash and the end which is lined and colored in flash. and then there's all the flashy elements like buttons and actionscript and such. So instead of just sketching, lining, and coloring like a normal comic, there's a million different things to do and it doesn't get too monotonous or boring.

So although it takes a bit longer, I think I'll continue using flash comics as my medium, because it's fun and I think the result looks a lot cooler and bitchin.

Also, I'm sorry. I am so sorry. I didn't want to do it, but the chance for character development was too tempting. ;n; if you don't know what I'm talking about you obviously haven't read the flash yet. TTnTT *coughcoughRIPKaelcoughcough*

I feel like I may have introduced a little too much plot in this one. I think the plot may be too obvious, as well. There's what, three more rounds if I make it all the way through? I'm scared I may not have enough new plot to use for more rounds. errrrr I may have played all my cards, but I was too excited with my plot to hold back. We'll see. I think (hope) that I've introduced just enough and that I'll be able to thicken the plot in following rounds, if I get that far. We'll see in due time, I guess.

All characters (c) their owners, credits on the last frame, with links and ANIMATED icons! Yeah, I'm getting serious. You'll notice the action script in this one is much better. not that any of you will notice the difference, but there's a lot of small nifty things I added (like the fire buttons in the end and the hover-pics. you liiiike?). I used a ton of tutorials to help do stuff and I am learning SO MUCH by doing these flash comics. It's awesome!

If you have any questions about plot/characters/why I did something/what happened, just ask! I'd be happy to answer! I would also appreciate any tips/comments/critiques/words of encouragement/fangirl squeals/etc. you have!

Enough rambling from me. It's your turn to ramble now!

hrmmm interesting and total congrats on making it to the next round :thumbsup:
Flash is become a more and more attractive way to submit a contest entry like this to me, would you happen to have a link to any actionscript to create a loading bar? I've never been able to work those bitches out.

Thank you so much =^n^=
I love working in flash, and doing these flash comics has taught me so much about how flash works, although admittedly I knew next to nothing about flash before beginning them xD. I would definitely recommend it for a fun challenge and learning experience. [link] is the tutorial I used for the load bar.

Ow ow, nice! I really like the way the flash works, plus it makes easier to follow the storyline.
I have no idea how flash works. Only made a small simple animation in it once. ROFL I envy you.

LOL at the credits btw. xD

Aw thanks. To be honest, I didn't really know much of anything about flash myself before the first round. Pretty much everything I know now was learned by tutorials and failing over and over again on the first round. XD

Kael nuuuu! D: Now Symph has lost her legs AND her friend!
But anyways, this is AMAZING. Absolutely amazing. I LOOOOOVE flash comics, and this one is no exception. I look forwards to see how this plot will pan out if you win. :3

Thank you. I'm glad you like it. I've always liked flash comics myself, which is why I chose to try them out. :) And you never know. Maybe I'll lose this round and Symph can keep her friend. We'll see.
