Youtube version [link] I think this one is a higher Q

"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 what ever 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 [link] 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. Oh and the blackness is called "The Black Tezcatlipoca" if anyone cares.

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

just noticed something,at the beginning before they go golden,the one whos to be blinded has a different eye color while the other two are both the same, was that intentional forshadowing? or just something that happened that way?

More to solidify the "twin-ness" of the other two.  In the original Aztec Pantheon, Xochipilli and Xochiquetzal were twins and they also had a brother called Ixtlilton.  Now, due to the way I have set up the rules of my world, I have had to make them Triplets.  But I still want to maintain the twin feeling of the other two.

Perhaps you can tell me the story... my mind is always trying to document the Human species, as this includes the Myths.

It's about that citation "See no Evil, Hear no Evil, and Speak no Evil" that you can find on wiki as well. Basically, those characters would be the embodiment of the No Evil trinity in her story.
