The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 45

175 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 45

So long, NotALaserBear!

Just a heads up for folks in the Bay Area. I’m going to be at the Queer Comics Expo this weekend (June 18 and 19!), and I’m going to have The Young Protectors and Artifice books to sign and sell, along with Young Protectors trading cards, including the 18+ cards, which feature fully nude art of the adult heroes and villains of The Young Protectors! And actual Spooky Caps! And sticker sheets! And NSFW print packs, too!

It takes place at the SOMArts Cultural Center, in San Francisco, CA at 934 Brannan Street and tickets are just $10 for each day and can be purchased at the door. I’ll be exhibiting at booth #13 (you can see a map of the Expo Hall here.I attended a couple of years ago and I really think it’s a great time for both readers and creators. Please tell your friends about it. I hope to see you there!

And I’ll also remind you that the e-book version of Artifice has been included in the current Humble Bundle promotion, along with over $320 worth of other LGBT comics, ebooks, and audiobooks in support of the It Gets Better Project. Check out my notes on page 43 for more information, but it’s an awesome deal for a good cause. You should totally check it out too.

So! The Platinum Priestess has vanquished the Bear (which is so not a bear)! What will she do now that she has so much free time on her hands? Will the Bear enjoy its new home, and perhaps even make friends with a handsome mountain man with 70s facial hair? And what’s our team up to now that they’ve gotten their powers back?

Tune in this Wednesday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

  • NOOOOO!

    • syllibub

      *VICTORY SCREECH*

      • *steals megaphone* NOOOOOOOOO!!! *sniff* Fluffy.

  • syllibub

    *rolls up paper into megaphone* I LOVE HER SO MUCH!! Look at my smart, powerful, agile, sortofevilbutwhatever beautiful wife! GET WRECKED, FLUFFY!

    • 🙂

    • Sapfo

      *knock on door*
      “Sylli, Have you seem Fluffy? He is gone and I dont know where. Maybe your wife knows where he went?”

  • I feel like saying Clever Girl.

    • amusingmurff

      *loads rifle*

  • FLUFFY!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

  • davefragments

    Aw great, lady, now there’s a giant angry bear wandering around shooting laser beams at anything that moves.

    • I know, I was about to wonder just where in tarnations she sent it and how many civilians there were wandering around. Not that Herself cares.

      • davefragments

        Although, I think she just proved that she was lying about her powers being over-stressed to send TYP to a dungeon.
        She’s just a bloodthirsty “B” that I can spell out.

        • Well she was hoping just to kill TYP. I mean why dirty up a dungeon

          • davefragments

            I agree. She had that evil smirk when she let Duncan talk her out of it.

          • Ha!

        • Klaus

          I don’t think she was necessarily lying. She needs to kee some power for emergencies (as just seen). Besides, who says it takes less power to move a group of people to somewhere else on earh than to return a demon to where it belongs?

    • Klaus

      I took that to be Hell. Fiery sky, stark landscape.

      • davefragments

        Maybe. It’s more fun to think of it landing in some desolate mountainous region just waiting for anything go bother it.

        My area of the world has brown bears and when the bear wants to crap in our yards and not in the woods, the bear gets a free pass. They are vicious and nasty beasts.

  • So, PP did what Spooky was supposed to do, and send Fluffy home – or I hope she did. That was not the nicest way, and who knows if the recidents will appreciate it as much as us.

    Btw.. Too weak to transport the YP team to Duncan’s dungeons my ass. Someone has an explanation problem >.>

    • Saxon_Brenton

      That’s what I thought at first (“Oh, so she does have enough power to get through the walls of pain and blood after all”), but it doesn’t seem to match the visuals for Laampros’ dimension.

      • I don’t think Fluffy came from Laampros’ circle of hell. Bigger chance it’s from what ever dimension of it that Spooky ended up in. Would suck major if PP just sent it to another part of the world, one with a different timezone, but at same time – why would she need a bone-door for Laampy then?

        Maybe some parts are easier reached. That or some place is going to have a new definition of Bigfoot 😉

        • Saxon_Brenton

          Yeah, I suppose she could have dumped in a third dimension entirely. (I could be a nitpicky and unappreciative brat and claim that you’re not using the illustrated medium to it’s full potential if you don’t make the different hell dimension obviously and visually different from one another and from Earth – but I’ll forgo with being that obnoxious 🙂

          • Doesn’t matter much to me. I’m sure there’s plenty of differences even with the same color of skye 😉

            Orange skye, like it was in Laampros’ dimension (which either is a hell color or a sunrise in Asia), and loads of rocks. That does not look like the most comfy place. This is just a tiny peek into another place. Hard to tell what is on the ground below.

            ——
            Oh, and an earth look-a-like hell dimension is almost as tricksy and horrible as something that is far different, like Casa del Laampros. It can *almost* feel safe.. right up until you’re reminded it’s very much not when animals like the bears are major size and shoots lasers at you.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Huh. You know, at first I thought the Priestess had teleported the LaserNot!Bear into Laampros’ realm (the red skies thing, y’know). But then I realised that those mountains aren’t spindly-pointy enough, and there isn’t any lightning at all. I think she’s teleported him a few thousand kilometres eastwards to somewhere on Earth where it’s twilight.

    • syllibub

      Yeah, I think at this point she’s getting worn out — she might have just warped Fluffy into the mountains where Duncan took Kyle. At least it looks like wilderness, but still, someone’s going to have to clear him out eventually.

  • Alex, we are only in June 😉 ..but I hope you have much fun and great sales at the con. I was just reading about it on your Convention info a few minutes agho.

  • davefragments

    Someone is going to have to … like … “cleanup in aisle 3” with Fluffy when all this is settled.

  • Wildroses

    Dammit Alex, stop teasing us with all these new story threads of the last fortnight and follow one up before I go mad with curiosity! Over the last fortnight I’ve basically been going so what will happen to that character now? Is Fluke alright after being near the device which exploded last time someone destroyed it? Is Duncan alright (not that I care about him as a character, manipulative demon-summoning and dealing jerk that he is, but him being hurt or dead could make the path of the rest of the story interesting)? What will Flyboy do now he is better? What will the team do now they have their powers back? What’s Sircea going to do now the bear isn’t distracting her? I suspect the answer to that last one is try kill someone. Will she go for Mitch again, as attacking him caused them to falter last time, or decide Amanda is the true threat and go for her?

    • syllibub

      I think she’ll still go after Amanda if she gets the opportunity — taking out the leader is the best way to destabilize the team, especially since Amanda can direct them so easily with her powers.

      • Wildroses

        And the interesting thing about going for Amanda is she is currently behind Tsunami and Kyle, so any attack on her is going to have to go through them first.

    • timemonkey

      No point in attacking Mitch again. Last time he was a viable target because Amanda was using him to coordinate their attack, this time they’re just attacking whatever’s in front of them while Fluke urns the tables in their favor as much as he can.
      Also, targeting mitch caused Spooky to release Duncan. Duncan’s already occupied so pointing her staff up just means she’s not defending herself from the others.

  • syllibub

    So now Sircea’s exhausted and Duncan’s…whatever the hell he is now that the dampener blew up in his face — meanwhile the team has got their powers back and they’re ready to kick ass. If the timer doesn’t go off soon and interrupt them, I think their chances are better than ever.

    • And just at the right time. That count doiwn clock HAS to be near zero soon.

  • Eris, elder daughter of Nyx

    Sircea is scary. Normally I would advise not messing with her, but under the circumstances . . .

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Okay, so let’s look at the tactics of this. Commander’s plan was to keep Team Silver distracted for long enough for Tsunami to make a water-fist and pull the wires of the automatic sacrifice device in the box-of-doom(tm). It would seem that lucky break that kept Team Silver tied up and put Commander’s plan back in the ‘feasible’ column has run out.
    So big question: Has the intervention of Fluffy lasted long enough for Tsu-Tsu to have a free second to use his powers? Or will he be distracted by the opportunity to put minions in a world of hurt. I predict what happens next will be a good indicator of how well Tsunami is at keeping focused.

    • Wildroses

      Considering how badly Sircea wanted Amanda dead, I think it likely she’s going to make Amanda her primary target. Why am I bringing this up in a discussion about Tsunami? Because Amanda is standing behind Tsunami and any attack on Amanda will go through him first. There is a decent chance Tsunami is going to be completely distracted fighting to keep himself and Amanda alive now Sircea has removed the bear from her attention.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        So, Commander starts to yell “Now, Tsunami! We’ll cover you!” but only gets as far as “Nowwahhh!!!” Tsunami and Red Hot are distracted and go “Commander!” and the Priestess looms up all menacing like and proclaims “I have you now, my pretties!”

        • davefragments

          Kyle burnt her before. He can burn her again.

  • She looks a little tired in panel 1. This could be good for the team, if she used lots of that, supposedly not big, energy on fighting Fluffy.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      I have to admit, after looking a few time at panel 1 on its own and then as part of the whole page, I’m not seeing tiredness. More irritation (there’s a whole lotta snarly face going on in panel 1). I can understand why she should be getting tired, based on previous statements about loss of personal power because of the Grey Working, but I’m not seeing it among the dodging and zapping moves she’s showing.

      • She certainly has lost her smile, and looks more strained than she has at anytime before (where she’s been rather pompous and snark). What ever that means for her 🙂

        • Saxon_Brenton

          You know DanishWolf, we really have to pay more attention to the scripts that are released as Patron rewards:

          Page 45. Panel 1. “The Platinum Priestess vs. the bear. She’s exhausted, but still fighting, now leaping out of the way of its laser eyes. The bear looks tired at this point too — The Platinum Priestess is also a bad ass.”

          You were right about the Priestess being tired, and I was wrong.

          • Nice to know 🙂

            I do read the scripts during the day after new page is up, but I’ve had so much on my programme since the page was up that I hadn’t gotten around to this one yet. I reacted to her looking strained and not smiling anymore.

  • TwilightDreamer

    whoa! haha, almost forgot about the laser bear :)…………gees brain, how do you forget about a laser bear????
    Aaaww…don’t send it away yet 🙁

    • Samurai Jack

      We’ll always have the carnivorous beanstalk. I hear the gas attacks are tremendous.

      • TwilightDreamer

        yay 🙂

  • fujoshifanatic

    How can that not be a bear if it just barrooed? At any rate, maybe it will be of some use in hell and fry a couple of demons down there. Speaking of demons, it looks like they’re about to make and appearance soon. Come on Spooky, wake up! TYP is gonna need you real soon!

  • davefragments

    Tomorrow and Sunday still aren’t July. If they were then I would have missed the Tour De France and I’ve watched that every summer since I retired. I have this affinity for bicycle tires.

  • In hindsight, I’m now extra happy PP didn’t send the team to the dungeons, when Anni asked, for what ever reason she kept them there – which I’m sure has a lot more to do with Kyle (and possibly Spooky) than Amanda.

    Depending on what state Duncan is in now, he’ll have to ask himself that, if he can at the moment. If he’s rendered powerless for a while, it might be too late to truly second-guess what else PP hasn’t been honest about.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Aww, I wanted to keep it!

  • Suhndog

    That’s a Cardiac bear.. if I saw it in the woods, it would be a Cardiac moment! heh

  • Suhndog

    Poor Baroo.. I hear he’s Baloo’s evil Japanese brother..

    I’m enjoying all the little [or BIG] twists and turns in this comic!

  • timemonkey

    Told ya she could take him. But did it take too long?

  • T Dibbler

    Ooh, nice one Sircea. But is that somewhere else on Earth? Because I am now concerned for whatever innocent people (or creatures) that may reside wherever that portal opened up.

  • Jeff Baker

    Now the theme to “Grizzly Adams” is running through my head! 🙂

  • Wow, that puts PPs powers in a whole new category – huge instant Portal even without screwing a consenting young half demon… looks like she’s already tapping the power source she wanted to create with summoning Laampros

    • Klaus

      Or maybe returning a demon to where it belongs is easier than getting one to earth.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Rolling the demon back down the hill/entropy incline rather than drag it up? I hadn’t thought of it that way.

    • Samurai Jack

      Fascinating. Didn’t she say a short time ago that she didn’t have the power to open a portal? So she was clearly lying to Duncan. If he’s still awake enough to have seen that, I think Sircea will have some ‘splainin’ to do…

      • Vaira

        Maybe it’s the difference betweena huge hole in the wall for an hour to let all the demons in, and small hole for five seconds?

  • PFG9000

    Damn, Sircea. You sure can move in those metal panties of yours. I just can’t help but think her attitude would improve if she wore something a bit more breathable.

    • T Dibbler

      Probably why her outfit is so skimpy. Can you imagine a whole suit made of that?

      • PFG9000

        Can you imagine the chaffing?

        • T Dibbler

          Ooh, owwie. Not fun.

  • Klaus

    ET go home.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    nooooo, not not-a-bear!!!
    but honestly, nice play PP, i was not expecting that move, both in panel one and in the rest of this page
    then again, how else would you get rid of a giant laser not-a-bear quickly?
    overall has a “screw this” feel, i would not be surprised if she’s very agitated by now

  • Jeldenil

    Bye bye Baloo.. #sniff#

  • Kate G

    Buh-bye Teddy Bear. I hope that place is OFF EARTH and not, uh, another place on earth.

  • karmakat

    NOT THE POOR TEDDY…sniffles…oh i would just LOVE if she did a mistake in her spell and it lands on her head lol
    or someone actually sends him back “insufficient postage” hehe

  • Nate

    Huh, Sircea has some moves.

    (Comic book mages rarely go for the acrobatic stuff.)

  • bronakopdin

    I have to admit her agile movements impress me…
    BUT POOR FLUFFY!!! T^T

    I really wonder about the portal… as everyone said before either she flat out lied to Duncan before about not having enough power to open a portal and send our Young Protectors to his dungeon as she’d rather have them killed or it really is easier to send a hell creature back to hell…

    Though the flaw in that theory is: How does the opened portal even know beforehand what is supposed to be send through it?!
    I highly doubt she is using Fluffy himself to open it…

    It must be opened with her power alone…
    which makes me wonder again: if that is possible that easily, what are the sacrifices for?

    So the lying theory seems more legit >_>’ stupid wretch…

    • Vik-Thor

      And hopefully Mr. Duncan will have seen this and start thinking even more.

      • Klaus

        I belive he was otherwise occupied at the moment.

  • Dennis Grace

    Oh noze! The little old lady in the Tiffany thong has defeated Laser Grizzly!

  • Cman65

    Bye bye Very Big Ted

  • somebody

    D: oh no!!!
    why do you do this to poor not a bear??
    he just wants some love… don’t you see it in his gentle eyes, PP?

  • Toli Bera

    PRINCESS FLUFFY WHISKERS! NOOOOOO! D8

    Never Forget.

  • Molotov

    Back to the pit from whence you came!

  • KatKaleen

    How the heck can Sircea MOVE like that while wearing metal underwear?
    Given her character, she probably send him to Dinosaur times, where even a “Not-laser-eyed-bear” would be considered lunch.

  • Earl Patterson

    At least she rid of bear

  • Will Parkinson

    I can hardly bear to wait.

  • Gregory In Seattle

    I really want to see Spooky open an orange portal, from which the bear will charge back in….

  • D. G.

    Sircea is in excellent shape. Wow. Fluffy should b down for a while.

  • Jason Moon

    Man, Gentle Ben his really let himself go since his show got cancelled.

  • Vik-Thor

    Sircea’s got some acrobatics!

    • Klaus

      I doubt I will be as atlethic when I am 6000 years old.

  • Adam Black

    Is this the bone ring?

    Did Laampros Portal open up?

    • timemonkey

      You can clearly see her just shooting the normal ground.

  • Stephen Hutchison

    That does NOT look like the “ritual” thing… yeah, Sircea really needed that ritual to open a hole in the Wall, didn’t she. (Liar liar pants on fire.)

    • Stephen Hutchison

      OK, I retract my thought that it was hell. (The red sky distracted me.)

      Clearly she sent him to Si bear ia.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        *snickers*

  • Sunseahl Silverfall

    Just wanted to mention….

    Sircea did NOT open a portal to hell…. Remember she can open portals to ANYWHERE on earth at will. Remember “The Date?”

    Considering the change in time in the portal… it looks like she may have sent the bear to someplace heavy on sunset…. Perhaps a romantic Volcanic location… complete with sulfur(yellowing on the rocks)… Earth has hell-like places on it, you know.

    • davefragments

      Passaic New Jersey was once a swamp

    • That has been my thought too more and more. That she probably sent it somewhere else on earth. Another timezome with a sunset or sunrise.
      If she did that it’s going to need some clean-up by Spooky later. For his -and possible populations – sake I do hope it’s another hell dimension. For Fluffy’s sake I hope it wasn’t a volcano below xD

      • Klaus

        Since the earth is about to be flooded with demons anyway, the Not-a-bear may not make it much worse.

  • WiseDragonQueen .

    Teddy! 🙁

  • xLizardx

    Meanwhile, in hell…

    *It’s raining bears, Hallelujah, it’s raining bears, with lots of haiiiirs
    Large, brown, furry and mean, scarlet-eyed with laser beams…
    Oh, it’s raining bears.

    And possibly otters.*

  • Earl Patterson

    Sircea’s move flipping over that remind me of movie Ghostbuster at 2:30

  • davefragments

    Hey Stickfiguretairytales, LeBron won and Congrats to Cleveland. Have fun at the parade in the next day or two.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Thank you so much!!!! 😀 I’m so incredibly happy. I still can hardly believe it.

      • davefragments

        I did watch most of the last period andI never watch BBall.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          It was so great, and this just means so, so much to Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.

          • davefragments

            LeBron promised a title and delivered big time.

  • IriaAlonso

    Pity the PP is so evil… she’s an absolute badass

    • Klaus

      First there was Absolute Vodka. Then Absolute Music. And now: Absolute Badass!

      • John

        Isn’t it Absolut Vodka? I’m sure it’s misspelled….

        • Klaus

          Absolut Vodka is is. It is spelled correctly. In Swedish.

          • John

            Ah, my apologies. I meant it was spelled incorrectly in English (which isn’t saying much given what a bastard language English is).

            On top of which it’s a name which means whatever way it’s spelled ‘officially’ is the correct way 🙂

            I asked because I don’t drink and genuinely wasn’t sure how it should be spelled.

  • Klaus

    I didn’t see what you did there until now. “The first thing to go blind is the eyes”, we say in these parts.

  • davefragments

    Tonight we get to see more of what Fluke’s Luck has wrought…
    Will there be roasted Minions?
    Flaming wiring?
    Or a giant tidal wave of strange rain from the skies?
    Maybe a scream with a big flaming ring of bones?

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Will Tsunami be temped to whack-a-minion, or will he focus on what Commander planned? (Yeah, I’m not gonna let that go).

      • davefragments

        Time will tell
        (and so will Alex)

  • And so the waiting begins.

    I’m attempting to cook dinner on the bbq, because it’s too hot to do it inside. Mind you, I’m not bbqing. I have a pan filled with a quiche like thingy sitting on the top shelf.

  • *sigh* I was going to ask my Grandmother if she would back the Tripping Over You kickstarter as an early/late birthday present, but my uncle has her debit card. Early because the Kickstarter is ending in 5 hours and my birthday isn’t until the end of July and late because the ETA is October.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      It just so happens I’m interested in a good birthday present for you…

    • stickfigurefairytales

      (Psst – go on tumblr so I can message you about what package you want!)

  • davefragments

    My air conditioner just stopped. It’s the first time in four days it turned off before midnight. Last night it ran all night. The other nights it didn’t turn off until 2 am (Eastern) …

    • It’s been just under 80 at 2 am here. A/C is getting worked a lot. This is going to be a harsh summer.

      • davefragments

        I’m blaming it on the Strawberry Moon on the Solstice. AT least the world didn’t end. That was the rumor mill about it. Then they realized that it happened once before (well many times before) in 1948 and the world didn’t end then.

        • I remember when I was in Jr High and the planets were all aligning and the world was supposed to end then too.

          • davefragments

            Or the moon is supposed to appear big as a building and turn colors. I’ve debunked that about three times so far.

          • davefragments

            Good picture.

          • It was a complete freak accident that we got it. Normally it’s just a blurr

          • davefragments

            Steady the phone or camera on a fixe object like against a wall or a railing.

          • My phone usually just won’t focus, and neither does the other digital which we took that one with.. Goes in and out, in and out. But one day we’ll get a really real camera. Well, I mean we have our old film Canon, but where does one get film anymore.

          • davefragments

            I’m not sure about film. I haven’t bought 35mm in ages.
            Those 35mm lenses focus at infinity. I’m not sure what cellphones and digital cameras do for focus.

          • We haven’t gotten film either. So it’s a big mystery now. We had a nice long lens on it. Our digital camera will focus on the weirdest things and not what we point it at.

          • davefragments

            I’ve noticed that about digital cameras. I don’t know why or a way around it.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Whoa – that’s incredible!!

          • Thanks! There was a fire out that way yonder, so that could be a little bit why it was so red.

    • Stopped as in broke or stopped because it was cool enough to not be needed?

      • davefragments

        Stopped as in reached temperature.
        Last night when it ran all night was caused by too low a coolant in it.

        • I turned ours off because I heard the rumble of thunder and wanted to be on the safe side. We had to fix our AC unit after a storm one year…..it was not pleasant as it was awhile before it could be fixed. I don’t do well in the heat…

          • davefragments

            Mine is built up in the attic and has little ceiling vents. It’s a bit weird but it works when it isn’t leaking coolant.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Ah, broken electrical goods. In a similar situation. I’m at home for the afternoon waiting for plumbers to arrive to replace the hot water system, which started to leak recently.

      • davefragments

        I had to get the Guest Bathroom plumbing fixed. That cost me too much money earlier this year.

  • Oh! It’s not really superheroes, but it is kinda. I wanna recommend Wynonna Earp on Syfy. It’s basically kinda Buffy meets the Wild West. Wynonna is the descendant of Wyatt Earp. It’s been lots of fun. And well Doc Holiday is such a charming scoundrel…swoon.

  • stickfigurefairytales

  • Hi y’all. Eyes woken enough that I can look clearly on the screeen 😉 I’m SO excited to what this next page will bring. So much going on at the same time, all so intense.

    • Morning!

      • Morning. It’s a cloudy and very misty morning, but in its own way it has a pretty charm. Especially in the early morning light, and a sun that tries tl break through the skies.

        And Disqus seems to have had an update, because my tablet shows ‘Show one reply’ in a smaller gray box now instead of a gray box as wide as the comments field. Hope it means less gremlins.

        • Hopefully!

          It was 82(f) at 8 this morning. It got to be about 106 today.

          • Yikes! In Danish standard we’ll get pretty hot weather this whole week, in the 80s (25-30C). It’s also coming with risk of (local) rain/showers all week, meaning some days/periods can be humid as hell. Going to be fuuun if it does -_-

          • Ugh! Hot and humid does suck. When I lived in AZ. it was like swimming in soup. It was 80% and 90 at night. 110 during the day and still 80%

          • The thing about being surrounded by sea, and being surrounded by other countries across various seas/sounds -giving us some natural shelter in their own way. For being a small country, the sea areas around us has many names.
            It’s near impossible (yet) to get extremely hot. Around low 90s (in the shade) is the record. But when you’re used to temps above 77F/25C being classified as a summer-day, the high 80s is hot.

            I have been in Las Vegas when the heat went over 100 F and you run from air conditioner to air conditioner. When you get in a car, you turn the AC on full blast and leave it there. The car doesn’t cool but the AC blows colder air on you and you cools your face while your back sweats. Disgusting.

          • Living in some place that was temperate would be wonderful after being in the desert. Normally 80 for me is somewhat cool, just not at 8 in the AM.

    My neighbor (in a futile and never ending attempt to save his garden) phoned tonight and asked I could order something for him on AMAZON. It seems that the yearlings (white tail deer) discovered his garden and jumped over a 3 foot fence. Think about ravenous empty stomachs on four legs that look like Bambi from the Disney cartoon. So I bought a chemical repellent for him. He’ll pay me when it arrives. A few years ago I bought him several blinking red LED lights that keep the deer away for a day or two and then the deer figure out the lights are lights and proceed to harvest the garden.
    Another neighbor said that about 8 adults (tiny herd) once pushed over his cyclone fence and ate his garden to nothing in one night.
