You know you like my word play TLC (Tobias, Lilly &Chase) XD First things first: rooming arrangements! *And because Tobias is a nice guy and this might stir up a little trouble the therapist is invited to live in the house :D it's also supposed to be good for the kids. Attic bedroom: Kenneth R. Anderson *he has half the attic to himself the other half will be for therapy sessions ** if we get any more staff they will be sharing the attic's living space *** there is a full bathroom up there (tub, shower and the works) Ground floor: Master bedroom: Tobias and Chase Eaton. *incase anyone cares they have separate beds and this is only until we get another boy Chase's age or he stops being afraid of the dark... Whichever comes first Second floor: Room 1: Shae Winston & Lilly Eaton Room 2: Ben Vinna & Lorenzo Blackthorn Room three: Jonathan Lee & Magnus Blackthorn Room 4:open *There is another full bath for all the kids to share *I will periodically open signups for new orphans because new kids come to orphanages all the time but this is not necessarily a jump in rp you have to sign up and create a character sheet here within specific time frames selected by me:https://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/eatons-house-for-orphaned-childern.61478/#post-1422112 Second order of business: House Rules ! Rule 1: Do not leave the house without an adult. Out in the yard is fine but no walking down the street alone. Rule 2: Pets are allowed but must be approved by Tobias and must be taken care of by the children. If the adoptive parent allows it whoever brought the pet in the house may take it with them when/if they leave Rule 3: if you have eaten or drank the last of something in the fridge or pantry please write it down on the whiteboard/grocery list SO WE HAVE AN EXCUSE TO LEAVE THE HOUSE and cause some trouble ;) Rule 4: if you make a mess clean it up. If you break something talk to Tobias or Ken or other future staff.... And other boring house rules like no running in the hall and use your indoor voice Third order of business: Field Trips! Because I try to be a fun person and Tobias has the money to do it. so if anyone has any field trip ideas just give me a haller and I'll add it to the list So far I have: Disney world Universal studios Six flags The beach *Ken and future staff are invited to join and help watch the kids One last thing... CELLPHONES FOR EVERYONE paid for by Tobias :) your welcome. Yes even the staff if that floats your boat. And staff salary is basically a free room, food & spending money when we go out And the children get spending money as well And now for the moment you've all been waiting for... DRUM ROLL PLEASE! *drum rolls across the floor* CLOSE ENOUGH! Ta-Da! The start of the role-play! Tobias stood in font of his five new orphans preparing to make his welcome speech. He had his brother and sister standing with him, Lilly under his arm and Chase clinging to his leg being shy. He also had Ken standing nearby for his introduction. He cleared his throat to get everyone's attention and began. "Welcome to Eaton House. I know y'all are gonna want to explore and settle in so I'm not gonna keep ya' here long. I'd just like to give you a rundown of the place. "My name is Tobias Eaton and I'm the master of this house. If you have any questions or concerns please don't be afraid to talk to me about it. You can call me Mr. Eaton, Tobias, Toby, Hey You... It doesn't matter I'll answer to almost anything. I teach self-defense lessons every morning in my study for anyone who's interested and if you need me you can usually find me there. "These two here are my brother and sister, Chase and Lilly. If your ever feeling down in the dumps Chase would be the man to see and for anything you're too nervous to tell me you can talk to Lilly and together we can fix whatever it is that's bothering you. Lilly and I do most of the cooking but you are all welcome to help out. "My Friend Mr. Anderson here will your therapist. You can tell him absolutely anything and he won't tell a soul. If your ever looking for him the attic is a good place to start. "your rooms will be on the second floor and I'll give you your room assignments in just a minute. Here on the ground floor is the kitchen, dining and living areas. Please help yourself to whatever's in the kitchen and the tv is free for everyone to use. We have a game room in the basement with all the latest game stations and pool and ping-pong tables. "if you don't already have your own clothes or personal items Lilly and I are hosting a shopping trip tomorrow after breakfast to get you everything you'll need. Please come with us so we don't have to guess at sizes for you." "now for your rooms, Shae you'll be rooming with Lilly in the first room, Ben with Lorenzo in the second and Jonathan and Magnus in the third room. And...." here Tobias paused to think of anything he might have forgotten but found nothing in his cluttered mind "yep I'm done. You're free to explore." XXX Lilly having been forced to stand by her brothers during that not so well given speech in her mind quickly waved to her new roommate and only other girl in the house. She turned quickly ducking out from under Tobias' arm and made a B-line for her room whipping the pleasant look from her face the moment her back was turned. Don't misunderstand her she loved to help the orphans but she would rather not share her room with someone who was ultimately going to leave her behind when they moved out. She hated it when she's made a bond with someone and then they up and leave and don't even send a postcard. XXX Lorenzo and Magnus both blanched when they heard that they wouldn't be staying in the same room. They had shared everything with each other since they could both remember through the good times and the bad... Mostly the bad. Hand in hand they broke away from the group to check out their rooms and then the rest of the house. They didn't have any bags or personal effects so unpacking wasn't necessary.
