Glitchy script PLEASE HELP!

So my script isn’t acting like it should be the character is walking/returning to a neutral position when they are coded to be in a sad walk/pose…

&pan to zone 3 in 10

The town of Scoffsdale,

&IVY spot 1.127 -64 77 in zone 1 AND IVY is walk_exhausted AND IVY faces right AND IVY moves to layer 1

&IVY walks to spot 1.127 171 77 in zone 1 in 4 AND IVY does it while walk_exhausted AND IVY faces right AND IVY moves to layer 1 THEN IVY is idle_exhausted

&pan to zone 1 in 2

A town my family, the Oaks; had founded.

&IVY is idle_exhausted AND BGCHAR5 is talk_unsure

A town that immediately tuns to fear at even the whisper of our name,

&IVY walks to spot 1.127 133 77 in zone 2 AND IVY is walk_exhausted AND IVY faces right AND follow IVY to screen center in zone 2 THEN IVY moves to layer 2 AND IVY is idle_exhausted AND BGCHAR3 faces left AND BGCHAR3 is disappointed AND BGCHAR2 is mortified AND BGCHAR1 faces right AND BGCHAR1 is arms_crossed_angry

I live my life as a social pariah,

&BGCHAR3 walks to spot 0.983 202 167 in zone 1 AND BGCHAR3 is walk_talk_phone THEN BGCHAR1 faces left AND BGCHAR1 is slap_face AND BGCHAR2 is slap_face_receive

My family seems to crave being feared, but I find it incredibly lonely.

&BGCHAR2 is dismayed AND BGCHAR1 is arms_crossed_angry AND IVY walks to spot 1.127 81 77 in zone 3 AND follow IVY to screen center in zone 3 AND IVY is walk_exhausted AND IVY faces right THEN BGCHAR6 is arms_crossed_angry AND BGCHAR7 faces left AND BGCHAR7 is mortified AND BGCHAR8 is talk_gossip

&IVY is eyeroll

I guess I just don't understand how someone could like being in childrens nightmares,

&IVY exits right AND IVY is walk_exhausted

It makes me sick to my stomach walking past people and watching mothers pull their kids close at the sight of me.

&set hsl 0 0 100 in 4

Sometimes, I wonder; Why was I cursed into this lonely isolation?

Story link so you can see what I mean..


@IVY exits right AND IVY is walk_exhausted

No, It needs to be & otherwise it won’t exit + fade out as the Narrator (IVY) speaks… That’s not the bit I’m having problems with.
The whole scene the character is sad but she keeps returning to the neutral animation.
