|What is this? IDK what is this either.

Thanks to the efforts of modchat and self-topping, you guys will now get... a trailer. A written trailer, of all things. No, IDK what is this I just wrote either. Of course, everything in here is pretty much non-canon unless crazy shit happens like Warcraft dragons appearing in Reial. Also listen to this as you read it - its the song for the trailer that you will
watch read below.
[The trailer opens with a black screen, which fades into a scene of a lone small island in the sky. The camera zooms in closer slowly, the scene eventually fading onto a scene with humans in winter wear strutting about while there’s a solemn voiceover over the hustle and bustle.]
Reial has always been a world of legends and mystery. Humans and demi-humans alike live in a tentative harmony, bested only by the tense relations between the countries upon the land.
[The camera zooms in even more, to focus onto what the humans were encircling around—something encrusted into the ice and snow of the place with part of something hollow and empty being visible. The voice speaks up again, sounding almost ominous in his voice.]
But now… a new legend is about to arise.
[There’s only silence for a moment after that, before a bright circle of light starts to flicker and then glows—revealing an eye just as the ice around it cracks somewhat ominously.]
[Screen whites out then, and a word flashes across the screen in novel text:] PRESENTING
[The words then disappear, and the white out fades away to reveal the snowy landscape of northern Ivona. The camera slowly pans out, but then as the vocal starts a robotic foot steps onto the snow. There’s only a moment’s pause before the foot moves, its twin joining onto the screen soon enough. Only a flash of a human’s legs are screen before everything fades to black as the first line of the chorus dies out.]
[It’s only a moment after that though does the screen show up again, this time panning across from the front of the landscape as the winds howl. Two figures are barely visible even in the snow before the scene fades to a new one as the foot shifts to kneel down on one leg and a robot hand moves to clear out the snow to reveal nothing but ice underneath. The hand pauses for a moment, as if hesitating to bring it back up—but then there’s a gloved human hand that touches the top of the robot hand, and the camera shifts to Optimus turning his head around to meet Pip’s soft smile. The man nods once, and Prime looks back down onto the ground before he nods as well and stands back up. Both human and robot look towards the far distance beyond them as the voice speaks up once more, sounding solemn once again.]
As the story turns to a new chapter… new and old faces reappear.
[With a ‘whoosh’ sound, the scene suddenly turns to King Bradley leaning upon the railing of the Amestris, his lone eye looking at something that seems far away. Franziska stands nearby, looking somewhat stressed with her whip gripped tightly in her hands. The scene turns once again—this time to Hijikata, Edgeworth and Phoenix, with the silver-haired man on the ground and Hijikata standing before him, held back by Phoenix as he glowers down, fist clenched and notably bruised. And then there is one more scene as one sees a young child walking down the halls, only to pause and turn, revealing himself to be one Ciel Phantomhive as he holds his head high and raises the cane he’s holding, seemingly looking down at the screen.]
[Suddenly the whole screen turns to Mal and Zoe as the ominous music starts to sound. Both Captain and First Mate look incredibly rushed and flustered over something everything flashes red and sirens begin to wail. The crew of Serenity scrambles around in a panic as we see the ship from the outside twirling around in chaos. The screen then goes back to abrupt close ups to Mal and Zoe respectively, their faces bathed in sweat as the two seemingly start to shout about something. We go back to the outside once more, where right nearby the Serenity the Amestris rushes right by as if in a hurry. The Convoy comes from seemingly another direction, but also in some sort of a hurry. The ship’s respective captains and first mates all also seem to be shouting, and Serenity eventually gets themselves alright just in time as the clouds before the three gathered ships glow dark before something huge just bursts through them. The six people shown on screen only all seem to make their own version of ‘ohshit’ faces before the screen turns back to a huge silhouette of something huge and big with wings towering before the three ships, a bright flash of red flaring like an eye. The voice comes once more.]
As the new faces begin to make their mark on this new chapter…
[The screen then turns to each Captain and FM duo, starting from Mal and Zoe. The two grit their teeth and glance at each other for a few moments before nodding once. Voice speaks again.]
Each of them will have to carve their own path…
[As it speaks that line, we now see Pip and Prime—Prime being stoic while Pip simply has a look of ‘we’re fucked’ clear on his face.]
But in the end, only a few…
[And now we finally see Bradly and Franziska; but while the first mate is gripping her whip tightly backing off with a look of distress on her face, the captain himself only looks sort of relaxed and totally not affected at all. Standing tall with his own cane, the man only stays still as his eyepatch breaks off, revealing a scarred eye as the final few words are spoken—]
…will make their mark…
[The eye under the eyepatch is closed, but now the eye seems to start moving underneath…]
In the history of—
[—the eye opens to reveal the pattern that is on Bradley’s eye only for a moment before the screen blacks out. Silence for a moment, and then words appear across the screen in their font:]
THE SKY TIDES
REOPENING SOON AT A PLACE NEAR YOU
Because you are a wee bit mad, but that's okay I ALREADY KNEW THIS
As everyone should, really.
Now that you wrote the trailer, you're going to have to write the movie, too. Just so you know.
...how do I even write a movie. ):
Well, a screenplay thingy?
It involves a lot of words, I hear.
Probably a few Summation tier-fulls of words, now that I think about it. XD
Don't enable me.
I have no idea how to write a script at all akl;jare.
Yes you do! /points to the thing above, which is clearly a script :Db
THAT IS. IS. IS SOMETHING I USED TO DO FOR MY POKEMON FICS OKAY.
Well, apparently that something you used to do for your pokemon fics was SCRIPTS. :|b
It was only in bits OTL|||
8DActually, the trial version only lets you save 15 pages and gives you an enormous, ugly watermark. A program like Celtx would probably be more effective, but it messes up your formatting. No matter what you use, it's pretty intuitive, and the "rules" of script-writing are very simple to get the hang of. Like you-can-read-them-off-a-website-and-be-fine-for-a-nonprofessional-project easy.
But screenplays are so~ much~ fun~ 83
You're such a great visualizer. And I like your sense of timing and sequence...the drama of action...lol, in the trailer and in your characters' posts. I hope you do write a playscript. XD
ffff you think too highly of me. I'm just this sad and lonely teenager who has nothing else better to do in her life. XD
That's so cooool *___*
WHAT ELDRITCH ABOMINATION HAVE WE WOKEN BY ACCIDENT
YES WE WILL. FOR THE GOOD OF MANKIND!
