Sorry for having to split things up like this, but part 2 was the least important to animate and I was out of time, so I decided to link you guys to prose form here.

But don't worry, I'll be able to fully animate Part 2 in a matter of days, so I'll edit this description once I'm done with the final version. Until then, hope you guys can enjoy what I have to offer for the Book of Stories.


Minor Edit: All music used here came from Freeplaymusic.com and their titles will be later listed in the end credits once I'm done animating Part 2.

Major Edit/Update: Part 2 is finally animated and integrated into this flash file! Click on the bottom-right arrow in the textbox to proceed through the dialogue. I'm leaving this link to the original prose of Part 2, in case you want to see it - I made a few changes and omitted/condensed some lines, as there's a whole bunch of dialogue to go through. =P

Link to written part 2: [link]

Ah, I love a good prone-to-punching girl. :)

Thanks. XD Out of curiosity, would you have thought Bobu was a girl if she didn't outright state it?

No, but that's only because I think of bugs as genderless. But her girl-ness makes her more interesting (since it would just be so typical to have the tough gaming character be a dude and the weird character be a girl).

I love that you do animation, this was quite fun, and made good use of an interesting medium. Are you planning to animate the whole thing?

I think she does talk abit like a video game and Rico certainly does.

And you've got the book too!

Our characters are going to have NO idea what's going on *Smacks forehead* and Sian is going to be so confused by your two.

I'm hoping to animate the whole thing. Though if I can't animate in time, I'll probably just stick with words and pictures like in your audition. XD

And yeah, both our OCs got the Book - and like you said, they probably won't know about the whole "Book going crazy and out of control" deal on their own, stuck to wandering aimlessly through stories until they find a contestant who got recruited by Mudd or Lady Ink. XD

Bo and Ricco probably won't be as confused about Sian as vice versa, but you can probably expect Ricco to flirt with Sian a fair bit and make with the awkward hilarity. XD

Sian is going to be remined of Owen most like and be somewhat disturbed. This is going to be somewhat hysterical. XD

I like the interaction between Bo and Ricco. :)
And the animation is really good--I like the varied looks and character design.

Thanks for the comment ^^ Just curious, how would Geoffrey react if he encountered this duo?

He's never encountered a shark headed person or a bug person before, so he would be a bit intrigued and weirded out. And he'd probably be a bit exasperated, as Bo and Ricco would probably remind him of some of his students. :)

Heh. XD I guess those two are technically college-aged, so I can imagine that level of exasperation. =P

How do you think they'd respond to him?

Well, since he looks like an ordinary human, and he looks moderately old and wise, they'd probably relieved that they found someone who knows a bit more than they do, and someone who can be a bit more responsible than them. =P Not they would slack off around him, but I guess they're prone to asking him for a lot of advice, and not as inclined to ask him any questions that would reveal his true nature.

Ooo, awesome work on this! 8D The story sounds so sad tho. D:

Awesome animation! :D This is really epic! 8D And I love the character designs! :aww:

This must've taken really long to do! :noes:

Thanks! And well, I know it sounds kind of sad at first, but that's kind of foreshadowing for what happens later (if I get into the The Book of Stories OCT and get far enough to the sad-ish parts XD). For the most part, the story is like a comedy like what I showed on Part 2.

Oh, and speaking of Part 2, I'm working on animating it into this flash in a later update, so I'll let you know when I'm done with that. XD

Once again, thanks for enjoying the animation and the character designs. :) What I showed here so far took around two weeks to do, on and off. ^^;

Woowwww~ Animation, and music, and a girl! The lines were almost entirely spot-on too. That's just my opinion and first impression though.

Thank you so much for your comment here. :D

And yeah, I'm using a girl protagonist for a change. Not sure if it's any different from using guys, but it's a change of pace nonetheless. And thanks for reminding me about the music - I'll have to add a credits page at the end when I'm fully done animating. XD

Also, I'll let you know once I'm done animating Part 2 of this and updated this animation in all its 8-bit glory. =P
