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.

I love the animations! The plot is very good, and the part where Tyger had to kill Kael was very sad.
Good luck!

Waaaaaaaah I like it. C8>

Hmm plotness. I don't think it's too much, it's interesting. I'm curious now what everyone's up to, and what's really going on with the Regit, and what Tyger may or may not have to do with the twins. Watch out, Vespera, Nah'yair has had a shift of loyalties.

Also, I like the character development, of Tyger's choice and how she interacts with Kael before they are fighting. Everyone's motives shall be questioned it seems. Ze plot thickens. And eeeeee I love the way you wrote her interaction with Syra. It's just..yays. 8D

Thank you C:

You think the plot it interesting? yay! Yeah it seems like no one is who they seem to be, eh? I think it's so tragic that Ty and Kael can't be friends forever. I think they'd really get along outside the race. -le sigh- But a competition is a competition and Ty knows it.

I'm happy that you like Syra's part. The second I read your audition I had that scene in my mind, with Ty's blind ego and Syra's all knowing humble-ness. Good luck with your round, I'd love to include Syra in round 3 (if I make it to the next round that is) and continue to thicken ze plot. :3

*RAMBLING!*
the prolouge...
1) I see I'm the not the only one to have camaraderie between Tyger and Syra, the super shifters.
2) LEEEEAAAAH!!! CHIGI!!! You drew them so cute XD
3) LOL at lunch. An echo of your RoA popularity!
4) eep
5) Outide help is treason? Hmm... *check your notes*
6) A deep deep storyline... that could stretch far...
the race...
1) Animated... shapeshifting. Only one other entrant has blown my mind as much as this.
2) A friendship between the opponents? Yet, in the Race of Aleria, even the most trustworthy cannot be believed...
3) Dragons! Always with the dragons! They're terrorising many an OCT.
4) Tyger... you wouldn't...
5) Tyger... you really wouldn't... BUT YOU MUST.
6) redbecomesgreen
the aftermath...
1) As I said... trust is nonexistant.
the truth...?
1) I don't trust Vespera any more. I'm putting all my support behind Nah'Yair!
the end...
1) the dragons are not the only enemy. the other regit may be a far greater foe...

Oh how I love rambling!
prologue:
1)Oh yes. Syra and Ty shall be the best friends ever. Shifters unite, and all.
2)thank you! I try my best -salute-
3)More like an echo of Syra's popularity. xD
4)eep indeed.
5)Oh you'll see why Vespie's so pissed off, all in due time. It's not just the outside help part, it's more of... well, again, you'll see. All in due time.
6)deep as the ocean, my friend...
race:
1)I'm flattered =^n^=
2)Unfortunately yes, a competition is still a competition even if you don't want to partake of it
3)Goodness those dragons. Someone should really take care of them. They're a menace to society.
4)Or would she?
5)She would
6)so symbolic
aftermath:
1)what is this trust you speak of?
Truth:
1)No one is to be trusted. Although Nah'yair might be a good bet. Or maybe not. Who knows? Only time will tell!
end:
1)Ohoho! Such wise words. We'll see who the TRUE foe is!

oh like Tyger need another traumatic match. She's already torn up about facing some stranger and killing him, having to face her new friend would just be so sad! TTnTT But it would also make for some sweeeeeet story telling -is now drafting ideas for the possible matchup-

I think you against Syra would make an awesome finalé to the Race of Aleria. Friendship would be at it's peak, but as you two enter the final checkpoint and realise...

Something that may seem obvious and predictable to you isn't always obvious to outside eyes. I for one don't have any idea what this plan is.

Nice job! Best of luck!
