I created my masterpiece by clearly laying out what I wanted to have in my animation. I must admit, I am more proud of my script than I am for my animation. 😉 It was easy for me to think of my animation/story by laying it out as sort of a play or narrative. Thus, the process of transferring the conversations was easy because I simply copied and pasted the lines. I was fortunate enough to find such relevant backdrops so that I wouldn’t have any trouble.  Tbh~ I’m not completely sure how the idea of writing a story about two conflicting twins of the opposite sex came to me. I just wrote about what I felt needed to be addressed- not just in an animation. In the world, women and girls are prejudiced amongst boys. They are addressed to and used and ordered around as if they are some thing. And I assure you, THEY ARE NOT JUST SOME THING. WOMEN ARE POWERFUL. THEY ARE EQUAL TO MEN AND BOYS. THE KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO GO THROUGH HARDSHIPS AND BE DISCRIMINATED AMONGST THE OTHER SEX WHEN THE DIFFERENCE IS REALLY NOTHING. Women need a voice. Some are too scared to open up about their difficulties. Some are just tired from being at the lower hand from males. I wanted to show that women are just as good as men are and shouldn’t be ashamed of who they are or what they are or what happens to them. They need a voice. I want to make sure that I am part of it.

Unit 2 Day 7 Homework: Story Script Act 1


<span style="font-weight: 400;">The background is in a castle and there is a prince talking in the large hallway. </span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Prince-</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> But little sis, you’ve got to admit that I beat you in that game. Ha! You didn’t even stand a chance!</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Princess- </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">I did too stand a chance! And do </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">not </span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;">call me little sis- it was just a miracle that you were introduced to the world 3 minutes before I was! <em>hmph</em></span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">It gets quite between the siblings as they remember their life so far without a mother.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Prince (weakly)- </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Heh-heh-heh…um, rematch of a game of badminton, ‘</span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">little’ </span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;">sister? </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">He wiggles his eyebrows at the emphasis of “little”</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Princess-</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> looking murderous and confident at the same time, </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">Oh it’s </span><i><span style="font-weight: 400;">on</span></i><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Henry!</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Then a servant runs into the halls gasping for breath, face beet red and back hunched forward. Once he recollects his breath, he speaks in a raspy tone…</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Servant:</span><span style="font-weight: 400;"> Your…… Majesties…………… I have been looking all…(cough).. All over for you!! Your father is gravellyyy………. </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">The servant’s eyes roll up to his head and starts to fall to the  ground as the princess barely catches him.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Laying him down on the floor, she urgently and desperately looks up at her twin and speaks fearfully:</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Princess: </span><span style="font-weight: 400;">We have to find our father!!</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400;">Her brother nods and without a word, they run to their father's chambers.</span>

<span style="font-weight: 400">Unit 2 Day 8 Homework: Story Script Act 2</span>

The two twins are standing on opposite sides of their beloved father and holding each of his hands while he looks faint.

Princess: tears sliding down her cheeks Father, are you…. alright? Is there anything that we can do to help you? Sobs silently and buries her face in her free hand. Why didn’t you tell us earlier????????????

Prince- We could’ve helped you in some way, shape, or form, father! He huffs angrily. We aren’t the fragile pair of twins we were without the presence of a mother.

Father/King: cough cough I… cough should’ve told you my disease long ago but i didn’t want you to worry.. cough about… me. One less… cough thing to worry about in your lives.

Prince and Princess: (in unison) Father don’t be ridiculous!

Princess: Now because you were too busy worrying about us, you have caused yourself much dange and  sniff  now.. Now… nowww…… starts sobbing uncontrollably.

Prince-  (wipes furiously at his eyes) H-h-how many m-more days d-d-do you have l-left sobs

Father/King: strokes his son’s hair lovingly with heavy eyelids. I-i-i-i have…. I have….. Umm…

His hands falls lifelessly to the bed.

Prince and Princess: NOOOOOOOOOOO FATHERRRRRRRRRRR

Unit 2 Day 8 Homework: Story Script Act 3

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The twins step outside, badly shaken and in each other’s arms, faces wet with tears.

Prince: it’s all right, sister.

Princess: (sobbing) no it isn’t!!!!

Prince: maybe not know, but as the new king of this kingdom, we shall be content, and you with your husband.

Princess: (fuming and yelling) WWWWWHHHHHHHAAAAATTTTT????????!!!!!!!!????!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Prince: (taken aback by the sudden outburst of fury) Uggghhhh..

Princess: OUR FATHER JUST LEGIT DIED AND NOW YOU PLAN ON SURROUNDING YOURSELF BY RICHES AND SENDING ME TO SOME RANDOM STRANGER TO GET MARRIED WITH? I KNOW THAT WE CAN’T POSSIBLY GET MARRIED BECAUSE WE’RE SIBLINGS- twins in fact- BUT I THOUGHT THAT AT LEAST WE COULD RULE TOGETHER. BUT NOW SELFISHNESS HAS CREEPED INTO YOUR BRAIN AND NOW YOU DON’T WANT ME NEAR YOu ~(uncontrollable sobbing continues)

Prince: (with guilt on his face) You that not what i meant or wanted to do.

Princess: REALLY? BECAUSE IT SEEMED LIKE IT WAS EXACTLY WHAT YOU MEANT TO ME!!!!

Prince: (starting to lose his patience) Stop YELLING at me OKAY???

Princess: NO!!!!

Prince: IF YOU WENT AWAY, IT WOULD MUCH BETTER FOR ME BECAUSE THEN I WOULDN’T HAVE A BRAT FOLLOWING ME AROUND TRYING TO PROVE THAT SHE’S BETTER THAN ME!

He suddenly moves back. He did not mean to say those things.

Princess: (tears falling down her face) I knew that was what you thought about me (turns away) But i never thought that you were that cruel.

Prince: (looks stricken) I-I-I’m sorry Lena. I-

Princess- (whips back to face him) well, I don’t want to hear what you have to say about anyth-..

Prince- (hopeful) Lena?

Princess: what in the world is that? (points to something behind Henry’s shoulder)

Prince: what’s what?

Princess: (looks at him as if he has five heads and ten eyes) Behind you, douchebag!

Behind Henry and in front of Lena, there is a glowing floating thing in the middle of the corridor. Slowly and gradually, the glowing object turns into a beautiful fairy.

Princess: (astonished) Who are you?

Fairy: i am your fairy godmother!

Prince and Princess: WHAT??

Prince: (stiffly) there is no such thing

Fairy: Yes there is.

Princess: fine, whatever, but the question is, why are you here?

Fairy: Ah! Well, i’m here to settle your dispute.

Prince and Princess: Dispute??

Fairy: yes

Prince: well we just need a way to find out how to share the kingdom, but there is no way we can get married.

Princess: thank God…

Fairy: well why don’t you just split up the kingdom into two parts?

Prince: split… up the …kingdom?

Princess: really?

Fairy: yes!

(Prince and princess look at each other)

Princess: you know that’s actually a brilliant idea.

Prince: yes, it is. ok ay. (turns to his sister) Lena, i’m sorry for being such a jerk-

Princess:JERK???? That’s barely a word to describe you.

Prince: please let me finish. Im truly, deeply, sincerely sorry. You are the only family that i actually have in this world and i would die if anything happened to you. If you could at least try to work with me then the permanent scar across my heart may mend. I love you and you are my sister. Please, forgive me.

Princess: (tears again rolling down her face) that’s the most sincere apology anyone has ever given me.

They hug

Fairy: so very touching.

Princess: henry?

Prince: yes?

Princess: I PICK MY PART OF THE KINGDOM FIRST!!!!!!!

(Prince groans)

Princess- AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!

And they lived happily ever after.

The End
