Fanged had been working incredibly hard, scrimping and scraping her credits together to afford to buy an expensive set of tools. They were a good investment. She might have never mined before, but she considered herself to be a fast learner. She inhaled deeply, feeling slightly apprehensive about being in public. She doubted that anyone nefarious would be hanging around any of the main shops. They wouldn't be the type to spend their credits in an honest way. They wouldn't dare lift a finger to mine either. They would pay some poor chump pennies to mine for them. Nothing bad should happened to Fanged in such a public place. The store itself was what would expect from a place that sold mining equipment. If she had to describe it, she'd settle on the word sturdy. She entered, allowing a confident mask to slip over her features. She needed to act like a normal person.
"Hello there, I wish to buy some mining equipment. I don't have any tools at the moment, so I'd like to purchase one of each type."
"O' course! Any color ye'd like?" Kor asked, putting one of each item on the counter, aside from the flashlight and hard hat. Those two he waved his hand at, showing all the different colors he had in stock.
"Ah yes, I'd like a pink flashlight and a floral hard-hat." She decided after carefully scanning over the colours. "How much is this going to set me back?"
Out of the choice of colours, she supposed she'd settle for pink. She usually wasn't one to put much thought into how fashionable her clothing was, but she didn't like the other colours of hard-hats. Some people might consider her choice stereotypical, but those weren't the type of people worth getting to know. Besides, it might cause them to underestimate her and that was always a good thing. She had her credits at the ready, feeling a slight bit insecure at the thought of parting with them. Her financial situation wasn't ideal right now, but hopefully she could change that with a little luck in the mines. She'd need to get experienced first, which meant that her investment might not pay off right away. It would take patience.
Fanged quickly counted out her credits and handed them over when she reached the correct amount. It would leave her with a bit over 100 credits left, which she would need to make last. Thankfully, she had already stocked up on food for her and her pets. She would just need to live a little light on the luxuries. Mining would be a bit difficult to learn, but it was honest work and she could make a lot if she got lucky. She just needed to put in the time and motivation. She waited patiently for the shopkeeper to hand over her items. She figured she might be able to make a quick stop into the mines before she returned home. It was still early in the day and she didn't have any other obligations to fulfill. She could take her tools and head right on over.
Kor nodded and counted the credits, then handed over a bag filled with tools. "Be careful ou' there!" he told her, waving.

Xentus: Contacted cubeupload about this and another issue I'd been having, turns out the image not updating may be a cloudflare issue. But, the server is getting an update hopefully over the weekend that'll resolve this
Oct 1, 2020 1:37:30 GMT -6
Morgan: Certainly, I appreciate it! I'm sure it is probably something my computer is doing, it will probably fix itself, but if it doesn't I'll be sure to get ahold of you. :3
Sept 30, 2020 23:57:37 GMT -6
Xentus: Oh let me know if his image doesn't update for you after like a day or so, I'll try to reupload or give you a new code if all else fails
Sept 30, 2020 23:53:40 GMT -6
Morgan: Oh, neat! It is really cool to see the first draft. It really helps seeing the initial thoughts- I do love how he came out even more knowing the starting steps of the journey.
Sept 30, 2020 23:49:00 GMT -6
Morgan: Thank you, again. I know it was a lot of hard work to bring him to life.
Sept 30, 2020 23:46:58 GMT -6
Morgan: You did a great job. c: I love how his face looks, and that wing aura is probably my favorite thing about him. I've kinda associated constellation-y stuff with Morgan's magic before I even had Morgan onsite, and it really ties them together.
Sept 30, 2020 23:46:37 GMT -6
Xentus: I was afraid I didn't apply his concepts very well actually heh. The mask inspired his markings and his face shape vaguely. If you look closely at his wing arua, there's little constellations
Sept 30, 2020 23:43:11 GMT -6
Morgan: I'm sorry I probably didn't give the easiest concept/idea/body type to image combo, but you really, really knocked it out of the park and he came out even better than hoped. <3
Sept 30, 2020 23:34:50 GMT -6
Xentus: I'm so relieved <3 I'm really happy with how he turned out
Sept 30, 2020 23:33:01 GMT -6
Morgan: The more I look at it the more I love him. c: His lightning-bolt shaped horns are awesome.
