Alpha Blood Window Flash

Notes

I made and completed this during high school, though I could not tell you what years or how old I was; I’m guessing I was 17-18. At first this was just going to be a test to see what kind of things I can do in Flash, but I grew fond of it and eventually finished it. The entire project was pretty serendipitous as I bullshitted the story of each episode after the previous one was finished, and somehow I think it worked out okay.

As you already know, anything made by teenagers is riddled with shit and AIDS. This story is no exception.

You will clench your fists at the clichés and rage at terrible animu tropes.

You will want to pour acid onto your eyes to relieve the painful art.

You will let out an audible groan every time you see something stupid happen (actually, you could probably play a drinking game and be dead by the time the series is finished).

YOU THINK I’M KIDDING, BUT I’M NOT.

I’m obviously not proud of my out-dated art or the bad writing, but because this is the only thing I’ve ever finished, I look upon it with some glimmer of pride despite the corny, terrible story and terrible …everything. Every time I look at the art I cringe, and I did think of updating it, but I decided against it because it would mess with the history of this series so I let it be, so I can laugh at it because I’m much better, now.

Additionally: In the credits, it does say I do all of the portraits but that’s a generalization because I either didn’t have enough space to list things or I was lazy, I just do most of them. Not that anyone gives a shit anyway. Here are the ones I didn’t do:

  • Lord Feres (from Ragnarok Online)
  • Lord Argus (from Valkyrie Profile)
  • Alexander (from Ragnarok Online as well)

Story

Tenko, a Guardian Angel, tags around with Felix to help her try and find her brother as they go through waves of demons and other crazy stuff, and eventually get entangled in an affair that they may or may not be able to handle.

This flash had nothing to do with the actual Blood Window storyline. This was just a side-test. So yes, Felix is a girl and nothing from this flash would ever make sense in the context of what my ‘actual’ storyline was… not that it matters because it is dead now.
