And finally, after nearly a month of sleepless nights working, delays, and gremlins, it is complete. *passes out*
Many of you may remember 's animatic of Titanic with Lyra and Bonbon which was here on Deviantart awhile ago. Well, unfortunately they took it down for unspecified reasons. But it was such a striking and emotional animation that I rather wanted to do something, so I contacted them with an inquiry of my own, to which they gave me permission to create this- an entirely redrawn Flash version. ^^
It's also sort of a belated tribute to the 100th year since the R.M.S. Titanic sank in the North Atlantic on April 15th. As well as an homage to the two Titanic movies, "A Night to Remember" (1958), and of course, "Titanic".
Now, I'm not much of a shipper, but I think Lyra and Bonbon fit the two roles perfectly, it's hard to imagine two mares better suited for eachother.
Every historical event large and small will eventually get a fictionalised portrayal, this this no different, not the first, and certainly not the last. If anything, this and the many others actually bring more attention to the past, getting people interested in something the might not have been otherwise. And as a scholar of history, I can say with firm conviction that if people are not first interested then they seldom will pay attention, no matter how important a thing may be or the heavy implications it caries.
