Storyboard Text

  • Long ago, there lived a god in the sky named Dimosthenis, and he was known to be a god of thunder. 
  • Below him lived Eleonora, the goddess of the earth. She lived in a sphere of mud, and she was beautiful
  • Dimosthenis, being exhausted and not contented with what he has, decided to talk to Eleonora.  He quickly then wanted to marry her, knowing of how much powerful he would be if he had a wife to his side. Eleonora then refused, saying how she doesn’t need him and how she was happy with what she had. 
  • Dimosthenis then grew angry, and said that if she would not marry him now, she will be torn into pieces.  Challenged and amused, Eleonora refused him one more time. Dimosthenis only grew more angry that he decided to bring his bolts of lighting towards the earth, making the earth crack and split into pieces. 
  • Eleonora did not give up a fight. Being the goddess of earth, she called unto her soldiers made of mud, water, and rocks to form and defend her from the streaks of lightning. The earth was slowly tearing apart. This went on for days and days, the earth never truly falling apart, and Dimosthenis never growing weary of throwing thunder bolts at it. They both were equal, and when Dimosthenis realised that he may never be able to defeat Eleonora, he came to a halt.  
  • Dimosthenis asked Eleonora that if he cannot marry her, then she must be kind enough to let him step on her territory. Eleonora granted his wish, but by the time he came down to earth, he found out of how much his lightning has destructed it. His lightning had pushed down the mud and the water beneath it went above.
