Rebuilding and Shopping (Open)
Still, it was time the inventor got better tools than what he'd filched from Bruce's stash and the locals after a brief trip out of the building. He needed basic supplies and whatever he could get his hands on to keep working on the Ironman suit, and to start stockpiling so that he'd be able to scavenge for whatever projects came up when the suit was done.
Putting together a backpack he'd been given with a water bottle and a heavy set of gloves Tony left the apartment, taking a couple significant pieces of the Ironman's reactor core to prevent unauthorized opening or use. He wore a heavy sweatshirt over the Black Sabbath shirt he retained from his world and his jeans and sneakers, glad he'd at least had comfortable work clothes on him when he'd been brought to this world. The sweatshirt was something of a must, however, and he tolerated the rather badly fit option because he wanted to keep his core well hidden. Shiny, powerful looking things were just too tempting to the wrong sort of people in an environment like this, Tony knew all too well.
He headed out and down into the city, sniffing out any junk or metal vendor, looking through the selection available to him as one the of exalted "chosen" types and questioning the locals on communal suppliers, scrap heaps, and possible locations that could be converted into a better workshop.
It wasn't long before he was pulling himself along under the weight of a much heavier and full backpack, water bottle held loosely in one hand and a heavy coil of water hanging from the other, trying to decide if it was worth going back to the apartment with his current finds to start building a better tool set or if he should try to find one more shop before they closed. He assumed they would soon, as the sun was almost gone beyond the horizon. He wasn't sure he had enough parts and raw materials yet to get everything he wanted to done tonight. Then again, he had enough to make a go of it, and he still hadn't slept enough to completely recharge after the battle in New York. In his head Pepper's voice berated him for not taking better care of himself.
