[CLOSED] A Housekeeper For This Solitary Gentleman

Recommended Posts

Blurb: No one had seen Aaron Steele in months, not after he moved back to his estate in the Arcane East. He had left his important doings to his advisers, and his riches to the careful hands of his treasurer. Those who had wished to see him were turned away; even his family had not known his exact whereabouts. Master Steele wasn't known to be a secluded personality, which further contributed to the mystery of his disappearance. When he was among the public back in Umbra, people often saw him with a smile on his face, sharing stories about his father, Charles Steele, before his unfortunate passing. Other times a bystander might have seen him greeting a business partner with a handshake and a kiss before discussing the terms of a deal, all in public, social atmospheres. 

All of the confusion and murmurings of his disappearance were put to a stop, however, when his aides and representatives throughout Genesaris announced to the public that the Steele Estate was in need of a housekeeper, and it's Master insisted that citizens from all walks of life were welcome to apply, and reap the benefits. Now, one such applicant has been accepted, and is now being escorted to Master Aaron Steele's mansion, whose location has never been disclosed. What has Steele been up to all this time, and why has he just now requested an aid? Perhaps these questions may be answered in time. Or perhaps not...

OOC: Alright! I'm finally getting round to putting up an interest check. I'm doing something different this time, as I'm looking for someone to write a short 1x1 thread with me to help introduce my new character, Aaron Steele. He is in need of a housekeeper or servant, which is why I'm putting up this thread.

      Setting: Aaron Steele's estate is located on the outskirts of a small town or village somewhere in the Arcane East. The constantly cloudy and foggy town is infested with savage vampires and other undead, making the location a rather dismal place. The primary setting of this thread will be Steele's mansion, a large home with two floors and an expansive property overtaken by forest and ivy. The forest is a dangerous place to be, so make sure to be swift when approaching the mansion!

      Content: I expect to be able to post at least once every three days, but I will let you know when I can't meet that requirement. This initial thread will mainly be a conversation-heavy piece, to build character, but I hope to provide a little action and peril near the end, possibly involving some undead baddies! I don't really feel like I'll be delving into anything sexual or romantic in this thread, but light sexual content may come up in future threads if things go well with this one! 

That's it! I hope you are intrigued. If you have any questions, post here. I didn't do much plotting for this one, so if you'd like to contribute any ideas, I'd be so happy!

I'd like to do this with Heina. Been thinking about moving her to genesaris and giving her a fresh start. She's an introvert but I guess she'll be perfectly fine for this thread. So tell me if you think Aaron would like her as the housekeeper.

      I'm not sure if you are still accepting applications now, but I would be more than happy to start this thread with you! I'm new to the site, and have a new character that needs further development and trial, as well. I think it would be an expiremental thread for us both.  

      No hurt feelings if you've already chosen a partner!

Hello! I like your idea very much, if you're still looking for partners then I'd be willing to rp this.

Thanks each of you for expressing your interest! I'm going to wait another day or two, then I'll decide who to write with. Thanks again!

Since you've decided to wait, I might as well show some interest. I'm new to this site, so I'm looking for a shorter story to get me started after the tavern where I created Charlie, coming from a country outside of the Valucre world where vampires are nothing more than a myth, stories to scare the children with, and she doesn't believe in them. She is heading to Valucre to find work. She's bold, confident and skilled with daggers, so throwing her (a very boy-ish kind of character with a lot of personality) into a story where she would be doing something that is completely against her nature (housekeeping) in a setting where there are monsters no one from her region has ever really seen (a natural ending) would be kind of fun.

Because I'm trying to get back into the groove! I do have a character who has legit background as being a housekeeper :bigsmile: Her name is Ari Graysen, she comes from Aelindra City of Genesaris; is very well traveled, she's been to just about every continent of Valucre; has wonderful credentials, and is currently trying to part with a piece of her past.

She used to be the housekeeper for a Mr. Grey, but has found herself needing employment once again. Ari has a speech impediment and will communicate through telepathy, sign language, a mix of whistles and clicks, or will very slowly speak. 

The only thread I've used her in so i for sure wanna build on her:

And her past employer:
