well folks, i really tried to learn some new stuff in Flash. Symbols, .psd File importing, Breakapart, the Envelope Tool, and ALL of it FAILED. yep none of it worked like i'd expected. Lots of Youtube tutorials and some Book Learin' and none of it answered my issues. BUT NONE THE LESS, here's the outcome.
The story? "The Brave and Mysterious NinjaPirate defends the flowers of he hill from the Evil Sea Queen and her serpent."

Week 13.! i was so going to make an epic, inspired by "actual events" but had to cut it short, i was trying to use Symbols and well , 'methodology' got in my way. If anyone ever says "animation is easy" , punch 'em.
