BLACK SCREEN
 
SOUNDS OF WATERFALL SPLASHES WITH SLOW FADE INTO
Image: Overview: Glimmering, evening sunlight shines through the breaks of a beautiful forest, set afire with golden leaves and white trunks. Filled with much wisdom, and power a deep, woman’s voice speaks:
 
 
Ell verdul dé ell asin vrael yanira ada melthair
The green of the old forest begins to gold
 
Airah ell lísthulith aotrom ûnir ell eyrlenith arbrnon—es dermir un tharràchith dormoth
With the falling light into the fading trees—will dwell a changing frost
Ist edrel ell Gälthriel dé Waëyna íslthair
So shall the Prophecy of Fate unfold
 
Airah ell leirwa lísthulen—álle esoëit elósna
With the shadow fallen—all will be lost
 
 
IMAGE: SUDDENLY, A SINGLE LEAF FALLS FROM ONE OF THE TREES.
Camera follows the spiraling descent of the leaf as it finally lands upon the silvery surface of a pool reflecting the captivating world above. A bare woman’s foot touches the pool, draped by a long, flowing emerald gown.
 
THE CAMERA SHIFTS UP THE WOMAN’S DRESS AND INTO HER BLAZING, GREEN EYESmomentarily. The camera shifts overhead and she walks with a noble poise into the pool, toward the mist-veiled waterfall.
 
CAMERA ANGLE, SIDE: SLOWLY, SHE STREACHES OUT A HAND AND BRUSHES THE waterfall witha finger.
 
GÄTHRIELLE
Révélir álle
 
A BLINDING, WHITE LIGHT BURSTS FROM THE FALLS AND A TORRENT OF WATER CONSUMES her. Her eyes blaze with white fire as her head is flung back. Suddenly, the bright light dims, and the water pacifies. she looks away.
 
CAMERA ANGLE, FROM BEHIND: Glimpses the woman turned away from the falls,weakened with her eyes snatched shut.
 
CUT TO: A PALE HAND TOUCHES HER SHOULDER GENTLY AND FALLS AS SHE TURNS FULLY to him.
 
PAN OUT: GÄTHRIELLE stands before this man who glows with a white aura.
 
CLOSE IN ON THEIR FACES: MAN’S FACE: He looks concerned, his eyes widened.
 
ÁTHILDAUR
You, my Fair Wife,Gäthrielle have seen it—
the fate of Naerthrym. Of this,
the Waters of Gläyndäyl has revealed
unto you.
 
CUT TO: GÄTHRIELLE’S face. Slowly, she opens tear-sweltered eyes, nodding.
 
GÄTHRIELLE
Yes, my husband. I shalt speak no lies:
What once was…will be again,
for the lands have changed with the shadow fallen
of the Enemy once thought defeated forever.
But no…Our age, this time—all that is
Pure within this world darkens, and will be lost
in the Shadow that moves quickly.
But yet…there is still hope for those that seek it.
and it lies in Där Gälthriel—
The Prophecy, and with the breaking of the day of Dragon Knights once more…
 
 
A SUDDEN, BRIGHT LIGHT BREAKS FROM THE FALLS.
Close on:  ÁTHILDAUR’S astonished face.
 
ÁTHILDAUR
 (Riveted voice)
Look! The water! It changes, once more!
 
 
PAN OUT: GÄTHRIELLE TURNS ABOUT AND FACES THE WATERFALL.
CLOSE ON: THE WATERFALL: THE INTENSITY OF THE LIGHT WEAKENS AND FADES INTO the display of a dark night within a forest, caught within the quiet of a coming a storm.
 
 
GÄTHRIELLE (V.O.)
 (Gasps, a terrified truth, and finality in her voice)
It has begun.
