I'm Mortal

by JLovelace
Short description: A story about a reaper, who pretends to be a mortal, just so that he can hang out with his oblivious human friend.

Full synopsis:
Morty is a reaper, and he's annoyed by the fact, that mortals see him as a skeleton with a scythe. Those who see him as his "real" self are either scared of him, or about to die, so he feels pretty lonely. He doesn't like to hang out with his reaper colleagues either.
Finally, some day later, he meets a person to hang out with, but he pretends to be a mortal himself. He's scared that they might leave him too if he tells the truth.

The panel with Morty holding up the note exists as gif in the Tapas version.
@WindowMaker: A small switch from urban fantasy to sci-fi. I love sci-fi. The location is Hell though, neutral grounds far away from the warlords. Phenex is still alive.

The front yard was like that a while back, now everything's more organized XD

Yeah, you're right. This used to be mainly a weapon shop. Now it's mostly robotics and electronics. It's common in Hell, and Netherworld depends more on magic.

Netherworld is the same as Earth with daytime and night time, just different set of stars. The timespan is just different, days there are longer than 24 hours.
A Tron-ified netherworld character, specially shown in technicolor? Interesting.

His appearance radiates "Sci-Fi Inventor", though I agree with Morty that his office screams "Scientist Villain". (I orignally kind of expected his front yard to look like this: http://lunate-epsilon.the-comic.org/comics/pl/719340 )

From the appearance of Technomancer's office, I speculate that trading electronics is just a small part of his occupation, or even his hobby: a shopfront like this normally scare customers away. His main stuff would likely be various kind of "Top Secret" things that call for this sort of big /magical/ guns. (Or maybe that electronics things are just generally considered mysterious/rare/expensive in magical world?)

Anyway, speaking of color: what does the sky the netherworld looks like? Does it just stay constant color all the time, or have alternating bright "day" and dark "night" like the middle earth? (And do they have an analogue of sun there? How about the stars?)
pfffffffffffff
funny

@WindowMaker: Don't worry, Phenex thought about all that.

@WindowMaker: Indeed he is

And it's hard for me to explain, curiosity is what seemed to describe it the best, guess variety store would be the closest, but he also trades stuff as well... hhhh
Well, I hope that Phenex the Technomancer would carry dual-sim models, because I think roaming charge between Netherworld Telecom and whatever network on the human world won't be cheap (if they can connect at all).
I suppose that Morty is a regular customer?

Anyway, what Tzar's Underworld Curiosity (TM) Shop is made to be, in mortal words? A variety store? An antique store? A trading post? Or a grocery store?
