Storyboard Text

  • EXPOSITION
  • After racing along the edge of a cliff, Epaphus, feeling upset after having lost to Phaethon, felt the need to bring up the fact that his father was an all-powerful God with far reaching power. Phaethon, who was very stubborn, could not leave well-enough alone.
  • THE PHAETHON´S HISTORY
  • You think you're pretty good--but, you're not so much. My father is Zeus."
  • Yeah? Well, my father is Apollo, lord of the sun!
  • CONFLICT
  • How would I know it's you and not your dad?
  • After Epaphus told stories of things his father let him do, and gifts he'd been showered with, Phaethon, feeling his pride being attacked, begins exaggerating his relationship with his father, going so far as to say that Apollo even lets him drive his chariot across the sky. Epaphus does not believe him and wants proof.
  • I'll be sure to circle around your house as I drive the chariot across the sky!
  • RISING ACTION
  • Phaethon is rescued by Apollo's sun hawks and brought to his father's throne where he proceeds to ask him for a favor. Apollo, assuming his son is of a sane mind, tells him he will help anyway he can--he swears "by the river Styx"--a promise he cannot break. Phaethon then forces him to allow him to drive the sun chariot.
  • Why are we still sitting here?! The sun needs to rise--let's go!
  • Is there nothing else--anything at all--that I can help you with?
  • CLIMAX
  • I can't wait to see the look on Epaphus' face when he sees me driving the sun across the sky!
  • FALLING ACTION
  • THUNK!
  • Oh, no!!!! Ahhhhhhh!
  • Die, you worthless scum!
  • RESOLUTION
  • What an idiot!
  • Thinking only about proving Epaphus wrong, he drives the chariot too close to the earth, scorching it--resulting in massive fires and destruction. He then tries to change course only to wind up both freezing and boiling the water on the earth--killing many people.
  • Zeus, after hearing about all the death and destruction, throws a lightning bolt at Phaethon, killing him instantly.
  • Apollo, unable to comfort his daughters, turns them into trees, where their tears become the sap that is released from their trunks.
