Eros Flying Tonight [SWF Flash Animation]

There are songs out there that I discover and get addicted to.  I'm a fan of RuPaul's Drag Race (a reality show competition about drag queens) and at the end of the episodes in this new season, the song that plays is Fly Tonight from his new album.  Fly Tonight (link below) is a dance song, so if you're not into that, probably any song will do for the animation.

So, with that firmly lodged in my head for the next unknown amount of time, I decided to have some fun and make one of my characters dance along to the music.  Eros!  I'm totally unaccustomed to animation, so I used this premade one that looks a lot nicer than the moves I was gonna give him.

Eros has recently come to be infatuated with Sergios, his grandpa Zeus' consort on Mt. Olympus.  But Sergios isn't really all that interested in the winged god of love.  Eros considered using an arrow to make the curly-haired immortal human fall for him, but... there was something very hollow about such an idea.

The son of Ares decides that when darkness falls and the moon is full and high in the sky, he will swoop in and steal Sergios from Zeus' arms, taking him into the starry night where sweet love will definitely spark between the two...
