Progress. Actual, tangible progress. Before her was perhaps some of her greatest creations, and she had already started progress on her third. Sure creating her masks were rather complicated, making sure that their crystalline structure supported the strain they'd encounter, but these felt different, not something she had simply made in order to fill a quota or to improve her proficiency. No, this was something she could see using in the future on the regular.
...She had changed, hadn't she?
Diana took the Tekko in her hands as she thought. Before she had been put into that crystal, she didn't enjoy fighting, preferring to avoid it. But the more she had interacted within shinobi society, the more she kept delving deeper into combat. And then, after she had reawoken, her mind was even more combat focused. It was...bothersome. Sure she had made weapons before, but to be excited to use them on another? Before, it would have felt wrong outside of a contract, but now?
Now she wasn't so sure.
She'd pick up the crossbow as well and made her way over to her testing area, setting the crossbow to the side as she entered a lax strong fist stance. Making a few shadow jabs, she'd then move up to her testing dummy and made a proper strike at it. The clay impression was enough to tell her she had made something that would serve her well, even if it was the proto version. She then swap out her gear for Guren Tojiru, and after loading in a test bolt, fired it down range. It was perfect for her needs, as she wasn't looking for range with this design. No, this one was made for stealth, and she was glad to see it was working as intended. All that was left was Guren Hanarete, the true test of power.
Swapping the old for the new, she'd go and grab the extra materials she had bought from the market into the workshop, making sure to take a quick lunch break as she did so. When she came back though, while she hadn't rested for too long, she was sure she could pull a few more nights without worrying about her chakra levels.
