Hey guys, sorry I've been MIA for the past couple of weeks.
It's been paperwork hell for my mother, plus cleaning all of his old stuff out of the house, we haven't really been home much every day, and I have to get back to one of my clients sometime soon to arrange some garden cleanup. Sometimes, I feel like I want to collapse.

I manage to do a little bit of artwork progress here and there.

---
I really want to talk to you guys.

You would think that when your abuser dies, the pain dies with it.
Instead, I found that after about 3 days, a new pain surfaced from it. Even now, I'm still trapped by depression. For the first few days after, I couldn't understand what it was. I thought at first that maybe it was simply my body letting go of all the old venom, or that maybe I'd developed fatigue from all of the running.
But yesterday, I think I finally figured out what it was.

I never got to know what it was like to have a loving father and a wholesome family. I never got to have friends, and anyone that came, he drove them away. I never really got to go out and play with others.
I missed an entire childhood, and I can never get it back.
I also missed half of my young adulthood, and I will never get that back, either.

I struggle to make friends, and I can't understand why. I'm really open and friendly with people, and yet they still don't want bothered. Any potential friends I had in earlier years, he chased them away too. I don't know what it feels like to have friends who want to be involved besides my sister (who I am ever grateful for, of course), I couldn't hold down my first job.
I never had a first date, first kiss, and I'd be insanely lucky if I ever met a guy who even wanted to know me in the first place. Though, this one is probably my fault. Years of abuse make it really, really hard to trust, and the fear of becoming trapped by someone again is very real. Although, I have never driven someone away over it. I give the benefit of the doubt, and still I get hurt in the end.
I would need someone patient and understanding enough to deal with me. That is very few and far in between.

It's really heartbreaking for me... Why couldn't I be normal like everybody else? I really wanted to talk about it and get it off my chest before it got worse.

So, tell me. Am I alone on this? Has anyone else going through this ever felt this pain? Let's talk.

It's happened.

It finally happened.

My abusive father is dead. I'm finally free from the pain, and the suffering, and I can start putting my life together. As I'm sitting here, writing this, I am crying. I simply can't believe that everything that happened this morning did indeed happen.
It has me questioning where to go from here. How i can learn to allow myself to be happy. Part of me believes its not real, and yet, I watched them take his body out of the kitchen.

I want to learn how to be happy again. How to accept and understand that the abuse is truly over and that I'm free and that it'll never happen again.
It's hard to believe that maybe I can start feeling some love for myself now that he's gone.

My final message for this journal entry

Is to never give up. If you're in an abusive situation, don't give up hope. No matter how hopeless it looks. Stay strong, you can get out of this. One way or another, you can eventually free yourself.
I suffered with my sister for 23 years. Last week, I almost gave up. I almost let him win. I almost considered ending it all but I decided to listen to that voice that told me never to give up, and that it was almost over. I decided to forgo doubt and listen, and today, it truly ended.

So now, for any of my suffering watchers:

Don't give up. Be strong and know that you can do this. Please.
We're rooting for you.

Hey guys, it's Joy joy here, and for those of you who know I'd recently started a new account here on DeviantArt, and if
you haven't seen it yet or are interested in following me there, you can visit my new page here: 11lovelynightmare11.deviantart…

:heart: :heart: :heart:

So here's the deal. I need your help, you guys. In order to release parts of the new age "Kiara's Opposing Life", we have to release chapter eight of our story on Wattpad. It would help us get there faster with more views, so even if you can spread the word to friends who might be genuinely interested in reading our story, you can send them to the story here:
V V V V V
Wattpad: www.wattpad.com/578277660-the-…


I recently released a teaser on my other page for what the style of the series looks like. Here's the Sparkle Savannah cast image!

Sparkle Savannah by 11LovelyNightmare11

So please, if any of you or your friends might be interested in reading our story, take a look.
I'm really eager to share this side story with all of you. I think the story itself is intriguing, and I'm hoping you'll all feel the same. I've been working hard on stocking up comic pages in the background.

:heart: :heart: :heart:

That's it for now, peace!

Hey guys, it's finally time! The release of The Inner Council: Dream Journal is upon us! I'm so excited! :D

As I mentioned previously, the set Wattpad release date is May 22nd. I've already prepared the DeviantArt page for official artwork related to the series.

So for anyone interested, you can find my new page here! It will see more artwork than this page does. I will be posting new artwork (ones that I am currently allowed to release) on that account soon!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me!

A-yooo everyone! I'm super excited to announce that my sister and I's first novel in our series will be making it's first appearance on Wattpad on May 22nd!
So, what that means is that you will all be seeing my new DeviantArt page, along with all of my new art very soon. I'm guesstimating that I will be launching my new account on the 20th. As I have previously mentioned when I made my reappearance here on dA, This page will see less art than my new one does. So if any of you will be interested, when I make the page I will provide the link on an updated journal so that anyone who wants to can follow me over and see where my future takes me.

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

Check out our pages! If any of you can spread the word about our work, it would be much appreciated!

Hey guys, how's it going? There's been a lot going on for me, I do apologize for my absence.

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

So it's May now, and you all know what that means. We're creeping closer to the release of my sister and I's first book in our series, The Inner Council, which also means I will be making my new DeviantArt page soon! When it's finally time, that page will be more active than this one, as I have more art for it than I do this one at the moment.

As you all know, this will also mean we'd be getting closer to the release of my character's Sparkle Savannah comic series. I continue to brainstorm the continuity of the pages with my sister and I can't wait to share it with you all. There will be some things that have changed quite a bit from KOL, but there will also be scenes many of you will recognize from my series.

I hope that some of you will be genuinely interested in our novel series. That being said, i will leave a link to my new page when the time comes for those of you who are interested!

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

That's it for now, and I'll let you all know when I have news!

Hey guys, I just really needed to write this to vent. So you don't have to read this if you don't want to.

So I'm a freelance gardener now, right? It's everything I love. I'm out in nature, I work with plants, I take care of local gardens, and sometimes people approach me and ask if I'd be willing to do paid work in their gardens, too.
So I should be completely overjoyed. Believe me, there are days I feel over the top, and like I'm the happiest I've ever been in my entire life.

But then, there are days like today. And I can't understand it.
I feel like I am still worthless. "But you still don't have friends." "You've still never been loved." "Your job isn't a real 9-5, you'll never survive in this world. You're pathetic."
This reel happens over, and over again and sometimes it wakes me up in the middle of the night and I lose hours of sleep. I feel so heavy sometimes like it's hard to move and I just can't be bothered to eat or do anything. Then there are days I feel panic over things like this. "You don't have a normal 9-5. You're going to die." "You could never afford anything in your life."
It doesn't matter how much of an effort I'm making to improve my life. It feels like I'm always losing an uphill battle with my head. You would think this would at least ease depression and anxiety down, but it's.. It's still really bad sometimes.

I'm currently trying to think of things I can draw in the background until I have work to do again. But it's really hard to focus past all of the internal noise.

I feel like I'm reaching a crisis point today. I wish I had someone to talk to about it. But then the other half of me doesn't want to burden anyone.
So, I just settled for writing this and putting it out there. I needed to do something before things got worse.

Love you guys.

Hey guys, how's it going?

I've been a busy chick. Since the whole event where I had to quit my last job, I've become a self-employed gardener. So far, so good! I made my first week's pay, and it's not bad! I really love this job so far, because it's everything I wanted. I'm my own boss, I help take care of local gardens and even private gardens. Already, i have a couple clients and I can't wait to help them out. Gardening is such a soothing job for me! Plus, I get to lose some weight and maybe get a little muscle going. :giggle:

In the meantime, my sister is still editing the next chapter I'd be doing art for, so I've been working on a personal piece in the background while I wait. It's been a couple of weeks in progress, but I'm excited to make it. It's really detailed, hence the time it's taken me. It'll pop up here when it's finished.

How has all of your weeks been? Feel free to chat with me and let me know! :heart:

Hey everyone.

I remember that I said I would update you all on how things were at home.
Believe it or not, they are well. But today was not one of those positive developments.

I just quit my job.

Now I know what you're likely thinking. "You only had this job for five days, though?" 
Yes. But let me tell you why I quit.
Originally, I was going to protect their name, but after what I went through I think I have every right to let people know who it is that supports being so cruel behind people's backs.
The company was called Best Feeds. It is a garden center.

I was given a ridiculous amount of demands to look after more than one thing in the storefront as a newbie to the work world, and it was insanely unfair. By this, I mean that I was literally told to answer calls, tend the register, answer questions (which I had answers to almost none), keep bags stocked with seeds, keep ties cut, register new memberships, log membership cards into the database, all on my own without much help. Maybe, here and there, if I was lucky I would have someone there to help me. But they began to make it sound like an inconvenience if I could not remember codes within the first week.

No, not everything there had barcodes. Sometimes you were made to just guess what needed written codes manually typed in in order to be rung up (For example, let's say something like WC for a watering can).
On my third day, I had a miserable customer who was angry because I could not ring her up fast enough. She turned to my boss, told him that he should have trained me earlier on, and he just told her "If we hire anyone who can't learn in two weeks, then we don't need them".
But he then turns to me, tells me "i'm doing great", and walks off.

Now, I tried to dismiss this. At this point, I started having nightmares. I began to lose sleep and, I started having trouble keeping food down. I felt the worst I had ever felt in these past few weeks because I began to question my worth.
I brought it up to my co-manager that I was starting to struggle with anxiety related to the job and I asked if there were any ways to cheat it and get better faster, but him, and the boss' sons even told me there was no known way to learn everything that quick.

The last couple of days, it was "you're not fast enough", "you need to learn all of these products within the week" (which again, even his sons said was impossible to do right away), "You don't take notes well enough", and you know what else?

"Remember, you're the one driving the train!"

Yeah, I'm driving the train without a license. I don't know what I'm doing. I have had barely any days of training, and you insist on leaving me by myself with little to no help at the register when I don't know what to do. Then you snap at me when a customer asks me for something that I couldn't remember the code to right away, because I'd only ever rung it up once.

Today was the end of it. My mother asked me if I could negotiate for part time hours because she needed me at home to help take care of things.
The first thing he did was chuckle, and then become angry saying that I was going to sink him because I couldn't do things at home within 3 hours the minute I get off of shifts. Because my mother was "incompetent" and my sister was an "overgrown child".
Now, i was taken aback by this. Everything I knew about this man over the past two years was a lie.
I idolized the way he did things for the two years that i chased this job. I believed people when they said he was great or nice. But here I was, being attacked by him because I couldn't be his owned slave.

He started blaming me by saying I wasn't making my own choices. This was my choice. I wanted to help my mother as well, so I kindly asked to negotiate hours. but I would be "useless" to him because he already had part timers that were "highschool kids". Because he needed someone who could "run things" for long hours for him. Then he starts with threats of how it's going to go on my record that I quit.
He started telling me how my mother was holding me back and how he was trying to 'train' me to get a job in the world, and how she would be ruining things for me if I walked out. 
At that point, I did walk out. I could not continue working after he talked down to me like that. I told him politely that I was sorry that it could not be worked out, and he just snapped back with "well I'm sorry for you because you have a mother who's holding you back".

Was it wrong of me? Morally, I could not handle it at that point. It was the straw that broke my back.
I will be looking elsewhere for a job. But I am thoroughly disappointed in everything I witnessed this week.
I will never support that business again, nor do I ever want to see it.

Until next time.

I knew it was too good to be true. All of it.

Life looked like it was looking up for me. I started becoming more confident, I was happy with myself, I got my dream job and I felt human for once. I felt like I belonged and I had a purpose.
But all of that is gone after last night.

Last night, our "father" attacked my sister and attempted to strangle her. It took all of the strength that my mother and I had to get him off of her. He is sitting in jail right now, probably with a smile on his face, because he knows he still owns part of the house, and by law, he can have us kicked out even if he was in the wrong.
I may never get to see my sister again if she is forced out. She was all I had, and I'm probably going to be stuck here alone with my abuser while my mother is gone for four months. I won't be able to handle that, I can't.

I have nowhere to go. I have no one to go to, and I have no money. I just started my job and soon I may not even have transportation to get to and from work.

I'm writing you all to say goodbye just in case things get bad really fast, which I predict they will. I'm terrified, depressed and numb all at once right now. I can't feel anything. Nothing feels real.
If things change, I will update my journal and let you all know.

I don't see a way out of this. I love you all and I will miss you if there's nothing else that can be done.
Hey guys, I wanted to update you all about a few things!
Firstly, before I start, I got called on my birthday to come in for an interview today! Here's hoping I get the job! If I do, I will be a little more busy. But I'll be able to learn how to survive on my own if I do. I need to learn that, so I'm really holding my breath and crossing my fingers here.
EDIT: I DID IT! I GOT MY DREAM JOB! I start on Sunday with my training, and I'll be working from 9-5 often. I've finally gotten my dream garden shop job!

So I have some news, and it is related to Kiara's Opposing Life.
No, i will not be continuing the series, but instead I will be making a sort of 'revised' variant of the series on a new dA page in the near future. My sister is speculating that we should be ready to launch around the late May-early June area.

By revised, I mean that the series will be based on a completely different 'show' in the universe of my sister and I's novel series, The Inner Council. The show is called "Sparkle Savannah", and it's loosely based on The Lion King, but has a totally new style and world to differentiate from Disney's original style and story. The characters become more like pop culture references with changes in their names and looks, though you should still be able to tell which characters are which by design! I honestly can't wait to show you all when the time comes.

:heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:

On to part two of this discussion, srbarker had a brilliant idea that I did not think of before. I was asked if I could at least give all of you a summary on how KOL ends, and so I will do that, since I do owe it to all of you.

========================
After Kiara returns to Pride rock, Makosa is infuriated that she survived the wilderness while Tukio had been allowed to die at her hand, and had come up with a plot to spite Kiara. She goes to Fidhuli and tells him her plot, to which he disagrees with, and is uncomfortable with doing something so heinous. She threatens him, and because he had been secretly in love with Makosa, he forces himself to agree with carrying out her plan.
They meet up with a shady crash of rhinos, of which were friends of Makosa. She had made deals with them before, and this time, she decided to barter with them in order to have Sangoma assassinated. They reach an agreement, and the plan is set in motion that when Sangoma went to join the next hunt, they would target him and crush him to death.
In the mean time, things seemed fine at Pride Rock. Kiara and Sangoma were getting along great, and even Simba had been repenting for his old ways. Simba began taking the time to get to know Sangoma, and even told him that he would be resigning so that he and Kiara could rule in a new era. Kiara had so much for her future now. She was going to have cubs, she had a loving mate, and her family life was coming together.

Here and there, Kovu would come and taunt Kiara with Kayla at his side, sparking insecurities in her. He came around about three different times, and was chased away.  
However, Sangoma defended Kiara, and chased them off for a final time after severely wounding Kovu.

That fateful evening, Sangoma joined the hunt. When Makosa saw the pride getting ready, she slipped away and met up with the rhinos to give them a heads up that he would be heading out into the savannah.
It is here, while he is hunting some zebra, that the crush cornered him against a rock wall and pinned him, proceeding to crush him to death with the weight of their bodies.
After the deed is done, Simba finds him too late and falls into despair at the loss. Even worse, he had to tell Kiara about his death on the savannah.

Kiara was sitting at the very edge of Pride rock, blissfully unaware of the mournful, howling winds around her; a sign that the spirits tried to tell her something had gone wrong.
Simba returned to Pride rock, hesitant to tell her the news. She barely gave Simba a moment to speak, enthusing about her and Sangoma's future, before asking him about how his first hunt with the Pridelanders went.
Remorseful, Simba tells her that he is dead, and that a crush of rhinos had killed him. Immediately, her world was shattered, and she felt the blood rising to her head as she tried to comprehend the situation. She could barely hear Simba as she asked him to repeat himself. Everything felt empty to her then.
He repeated himself, and she could no longer face the pride. She bolted into the den, where she collapsed to cry.
After she mourns, some of the pride members come to comfort her. Nothing changes how she feels, and she barely sleeps through the night.
When morning came, she checked to make sure no one would be awake. Here, she pushes out some loose rock in the back wall of the den, coming to a high ledge and leaping off, ultimately ending her own life with the hopes of joining Sangoma in some afterlife.
=============================

That was the end of the story. Though I did plot one alternate ending at the time, where Kiara was just truly insane, and pretending to be possessed in order to be martyred by her pride and be accepted once again. They believe her, take her home after she acts like she is 'freed' from possession, in which she then proceeds with the help of some cohorts to have the whole pride slain, likely including Sangoma, or keeping him as a slave mate.
She would then mock the viewers, saying:
"Demons do not exist. Decisions do.
The only one who can make the decision, is you."

Hey guys! It's been a long, long time, hasn't it? I'm shocked that I was still getting comments, follows, and favorites as recent as 2017! Wow! Thank you all so much for the support.

I apologize. If it wasn't already obvious, I no longer do Kiara's Opposing Life, Silly Simba, or LWRA. I stopped when the demands became too overwhelming, and I went through some real rough patches in life.
However, I do plan starting this page, plus a new one, up very soon. I will update my journal once everything has been established. In the meantime, I have plans to share some of my most recent art. I feel I have since imrpoved a lot over the course of the years. I never stopped doing art, I just worked harder to improve. I now specialize in realistic artwork (I've almost gotten humans down pat, I think!), and I am still working as the official artist for my sister's upcoming novel series.

Again, I have plans to update you all as soon as it is said and done.

Thank you everyone for your unending support in my absence.
Much love,

Art update

I have been working on small pieces here and there, but nothing too extreme. I have not worked on Silly Simba just yet again. Life has become increasingly hard for me with scheduling since last year. I'm almost always busy now. I kind of needed time away from dA for that reason. I get stressed out sometimes when I think about it. But when I can bring art around, I will show you guys. ^^

:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

It's a small update, but I really just wanted to say hi. Love you and miss you guys!

Hey guys :) , what's up? As we all know, my favorite holiday is coming soon!! :heart:
Valentine's day! :heart: I do have a piece for this year. I actually made it about a couple of months back, and of course, you'll all see it when Valentine's day floats around.
It might not be much to most of you, but it has special value to me. 

It's already obvious, but I don't come on much anymore. I still come on once in a while of course to throw pieces up when I complete them, but I'm now on my journey with my sister to try and get a book published. I'm the artist for it, so now my time and devotion goes to my possible future with my sister.
To those of you who support us, thank you. We really need the love and support.

My comics are fun and all, but they're not top priority for me. I work on them when I feel like it, or when I've completed something with the book art. 
Just be patient though, things will show up once in a while.

:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Art Update

Not much movement is going on with my comics right now. I'm focused on book art. I want to work toward my dreams and goals.
Of course, I'll update and let you guys know when I'm working on comics again when the time comes.
I did, however, start and complete a sketch art today. That's up already, though. :)

:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Well, that's it for now. See ya'll later! :hug:

Hey guys, I have an important announcement this time. I'll talk about it in the "Art Update" section.
So, mum is away again and I am in charge of the house. This is something that has pretty much become monthly. I get a break (Not really, since there is still running involved) when she is home (But it's still much appreciated because I don't have to drive for a little while), for maybe all of 1 or 2 weeks; and then I am watching over everything again for a month. I'm getting pretty used to it. Right now, it is actually my job.

Wish me luck, because I plan going for my road test in January. I'm a little scared, but I really want to pass that test... Here's hoping I do well, and that it's not as bad as I anticipate it to be.

:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Art Update

Well, what I wanted to tell you guys is that I am discontinuing Life With Raggedy Andrew. I do not have as many comic ideas for it, and as much as I loved it, I don't have the time to balance it inbetween my TLK series.
In the future, I plan to do a comic series for my sister and I's books. This would replace it. The style would be a lot less hassle to draw (Meaning, I will make a style a lot more simplistic.), and I would have more room for humor that came about naturally through daily interactions.

Not related to Deviantart, but I am having so much fun with my Tumblr! :D On occassion, between pieces I am working on; if it really strikes me I put out little sketches.
I have plans to release some original sketches that I did for Silly Simba on my Tumblr. These Sketches, and the others I mentioned, are exclusive to my Tumblr.
If you have a Tumblr and would like to check it out or follow me, here's my page!

Though, be aware, art is not the only thing I post. I do share things about myself from time to time. Or, I share a lot of my favorite art or pictures from other people. Art is probably not as frequent.

More Silly Simba will be on the way soon! :D I can't wait to start working on the next one..

Hey guys! So I finally decided to join Tumblr. I decided to share other pictures or posts outside of deviantart since some other things I like to do doesn't totally relate to what I do here.
That, and things I say or do will be more centered around my personal life.
In case any of you are interested or have an account yourself and would like to follow, here I am!

I will occassionally be sharing some of my dA pieces there too.

Art Update

Not much movement yet. Since mum just came home (She was gone for a month, I was left in charge of things), I am rewarding myself a chance to relax and rest until I have to get back to working on things again.

:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Well, that's all I wanted to tell you guys, soooo feel free to check out my Tumblr if you want to!

Love,

I saw The Lion Guard last night, and I totally adored it! I thought it was very cute! :)
I can't wait to see more of the series starting in January. I'd love to see what more of their life is like in the Pridelands.
Kion is a cute character. He makes a fitting brother to Kiara.
I personally liked Kiara's newer, sassy attitude. It kept her from seeming too oblivious. Don't get me wrong, I love Kiara's character regardless. Her behavior in the show just reminded me more of how she behaves in Silly Simba.
I know I don't have a right to compare it there, but it just kinda made me smile because it reminded me of it. :D
Kiara's two new gal pals are kinda ditzy. But, I do like their designs.
I thought the interaction between Kiara and Bunga were cute. I love how she flat out called him stupid at one point and all he could say was "Thanks, Kiara!" :'D

A very brief thing on my thoughts on the short film, but only because if I keep going my enthusiasm might just stretch on forever. ^^;

So, what did you guys think of The Lion Guard?

Art Update

Nothing much different from the last journal I posted recently. Working on Silly Simba in the background, My sister and I's book cover is my primary, etc.
I work on art when I have the time or when the mood hits me. I've been keeping the house in check, so my artistic drive has been up and down. I've also been sick with a flu, so I haven't been all that well when it comes to focusing on my art.

In the mean time, please check out my newest piece if you haven't already yet:

The Greatest Keeper by TLK-Peachii

If you play Final Fantasy Record Keeper, or know of Final Fantasy, leave me a comment or add it to your favorites if you'd like.
I always much appreciate them. :)

:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Okay so, that's it for now. I just had to talk about The Lion Guard, since I'd been waiting a long time for it to come out.
I might have fanart for it in the future, so...

See you later, guys!

So it's been a while, I know.
I've been taking care of the house for about a month now. While mum is away, I'm in charge.
I'm getting used to this whole driving thing. It's not so bad actually. :) Though, it is still a little intimidating at times.

Of course, like I said before, I won't be on as often while I'm taking care of things. Though, I have been working on art in the background when I've had time.

Art Update

I've been attached at the hip with the book cover I've been working on for my sister and I's book. That has pretty much become my life, and I am happy with it.
I really want to see our book succeed. So naturally, fanart or comics take a backseat.

However, that doesn't mean I haven't been working on them.
The upcoming Silly Simba comic is in progress. All panels are complete as far as foreground characters go. I have yet to work on the backgrounds though, so that will take a while.
In the mean time, I may slap up small fanart/art that did not take as long to do.


:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Well, that's it for now. Love you guys, and see you next time I come on! :)

Hey guys, It's me. I know not much has been going on here. But that's ok. I'll still put out art whenever I have it ready.

Well, I have decided to take a bit of a break from KOL again. I need time away from the serious/drama aspects of my comics, I would like a little time off to goof off with Silly Simba. Besides, it's been over a year since we've had a chance to see anything of it. :)

I'll leave you guys on a bit of a cliffhanger again with KOL until I feel ready to get back to it. I've been a bit depressed or stricken with anxiety lately, so I feel the need to have some fun and laugh a while. I always feel good when I work on Silly Simba. :)


:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Art Update

I think I've been pretty fluid when it comes to artwork. I've begun painting/putting details into my sister and I's book cover. I'm still balancing that among my other art.

Like I said up there, get ready for Silly Simba to make a comeback! :P I plan to work on it for quite a while, so don't expect to see KOL for a while. Once again, I need the break for some fun and some laughter.

:iconch1plz::iconch2plz::iconch3plz:

Okay so, that's all for now! See you guys later!
