DESCRIPTION *SPOILERS BELOW, DON'T READ UNTIL YOU FINISH FLASH*











If you felt uneasy, scared, angry, relieved, hurt, betrayed, like cheering, confused (about the context, not the style of the flash) or any other kind of feeling throughout this then I did my job right. Please tell me what you felt if you want to :');;;

This turned into quite a mess towards the end. I had finished all the animations but when I put it through flash they all became totally out-of-sync...

I realize it's kind of difficult to understand what's going on, but it'll be explained very soon x_x

Is this turning into a horror story?

Somnęs is pronounced as Som-nay-es

Music - Awkward Meeting & Schmetterling

The font you use gets clipped by my computer for some reason. I only managed to read every third line or so :(

(Using one a few points bigger would probably fix it...)

How strange D: someone said the same thing. My flash trial is up so I can't go back and fix it ;3; I could post a transcript though? :3 I'll probably start making the font bigger from now on as well

Bluewyrm Featured By Owner May 27, 2012
A transcript would be perfect :meow:

(I'm thinking the problem's related to having a large monitor... I've noticed it in a few other places that use small pixel fonts too - zooming in sometimes fixes it, but Flash wasn't playing nice for some reason ;n;)

NARRATION:
Oh he gave you a present.
Thank you...

SOMNAES:
Now let's keep this a secret between us, alright, little bird?

SOMNAES:
And only do me this favor...

ZEN/NARRATION:
Anything!

SOMNAES:
Trust no one.

SOMNAES:
Not even me : )

ZEN/NARRATION:
Don't be silly! You've given me such a gift! I have no reason not to trust you.

SOMNAES:
My light... my light... you have so much to learn.

SOMNAES:
A sparrow amongst a kettle of vultures.
I pity your desire to believe in us.
As residents of abandon, we cannot deny our true nature.
Dishonesty comes as natural to us as breathing.

SOMNAES:
But I do not particularly care for lying...
I did see great potential in you.
But that could only be because my proteges feelings are very... influential.
Nevertheless, I can't have you get in the way.
There are far too many great things planned : )

SOMNAES:
Hush, little one. I know it hurts.
Just accept it... accept it...
My light... my light...
You will rest much easier with me.
Why cry out for them?
They can't hear you.
Even if they could...
They certainly wouldn't want to save you.

(THE SHARD GLOWS RED)

SOMNAES:
...Oh?

SOMNAES:
...Sigh.
Looks like this will have to wait.
I apologize, 'Zen', that our meeting had to be...
Cut short.

Oh my goshhhh this is downright amazing. This story just gets more intriguing and better as it goes along, and you are truly impressive with animation and the enigma of telling this finely crafted story. Somnęs! What a beautiful name, what a mysterious character! The music also goes so well with this piece. This is absolutely lovely! I adore how creepy yet elegant this story is thus far. Your work is amazing! Keep it up! This is definitely most inspiring material! :heart:

Definitely felt uneasy... I think I have a theory on how Zen died though- if those things were flashbacks at all. There are certain tales that say those who die by drowning are never at rest- which would make sense in this context if Zen drowned. Eir certainly not at rest right now, as they're playing this game, and the 'sleep' in this world doesn't look like that, either... Or perhaps drowning by malicious intent? It looks like Somnaes might be... ahh... well it looks like Zen and him may have been related. He seems like a harbinger, though, so I don't know how that would work. Although it would explain why he wanted to help yet hurt Zen- help because of the familial tie, hurt because of whatever disdain he had for Zen that drove him to drown him/her?

Arghhhhh this story is makign me think so much XD

Amazing work though, I love the story, even if it does scare me a little.
I'm having mixed feelings on the bird guy, I'm trying to figure out what his intentions are. I love his design by the way! Very cool name too!

awwr x_x you'd think the story didn't even really start jet (because Zen is supposed to play this game and all... OR IS HE) but then weird things just keep happening D: and you get like gosh what the fuck is happening now o_o it's just creepy and weird and mysterious and SO exciting x3

well, what I felt while watching this... well first of all I felt very much like freaking out xD the music, the animation and everything really bring so much emotion! and when the bird was like drowning Zen and said 'jeah I know it hurts' I just got all WHAT? NO, don't hurt hiiim ;_; and Malcrux chased the bird away... and I didn't really get what was happening in the last part... did they just wake up zen? well, now I'm really confused x3 I want to see what's comming next! :3

oh, and does somnaes refer to dream? because I think in latin there was a word similar to this ö.ö

Somnaes, "somn" refers to sleep. Somnambulation is sleep-walking, somnient is asleep, yadda yadda. So yeah, Somnaes could refer to dreams.
