Introduction

Plot

After the tragic deaths of the Harmons, Marcy finds it incredibly difficult to find a new owner for the Murder House. However, after almost three years, she succeeds in making an offer to a large family; the Bennets. Consisting of both parents, an eighteen year old son, twin sixteen year old girls, a thirteen year old daughter, an eight year old son and a seven year old daughter, the family was in no position to move into any other large homes within the Los Angeles area. Seeing as Marcy yet again omits the tragic deaths of all of the people having previously lived in the house, the family moves into it, totally unaware of the supernatural entities living within.
Please note: Some details have been changed

Rules
Ah, yes, the ever accursed rules. But hey, they're necessary. :)

First If you are going to reserve, please post a decent WIP first. I'm terrible at keeping up reservations so if there is something tangible, I'll remember you.
Second If you take a canon character, keep them true to form.
Third Post at least two decent paragraphs. I'm sorry if that sounds picky, but it's easier to build a story that way.
Fourth Use real people pictures (yes, face claims. Don't like? That's okay. But I like them.). I like pretty forms, but it's not necessary.

Bronte

Stepping out of the car to see the new house, she blinked at the enormity of it. "That's kind of cool, actually," she smiled. Grabbing her back pack, she headed into the house after collecting keys off one of the workers who were busy lugging their furniture into the old Victorian establishment. She decided to go pick a room first, so dashed up the stairs in front of her. She saw a lounge off to the right, grinning. "This place is rad," she mumbled, taking the steps two at a time. She made her way down the hall before slipping her head into the first room. It was empty, so she continued on. The next room had a bed in it and dark shutters over the window. What scared her the most was that there was a girl with long blonde hair sitting on the bed. Upon blinking, however, she disappeared. "Oh... Long drive messes with my head, yet again." She tossed her back pack onto the bed and kicked off her boots into the room. "Mine now."
She decided to check the next door, to see it was a small bathroom. It gave her the chills for some reason, so she backed out. The door at the end of the hall was open and on impulse she wandered towards it. It looked like a master bedroom, actually. Walking in, she traipsed towards the window that was covered in filmy white curtains. "You're not going to last here long," a male voice behind her muttered. She spun on her heel, heart pounding. There was no one there, though. Putting a hand to her heart, she sighed. She quickly headed back to the stairs, leaning over the banister to see the workers and her family.
"Did you guys see a boy before at all?" she called down to them.

Violet stood in her room and watched the moving van and car come down the road and into the drive way. She had hoped it was just a couple but then the children came out. One girl, who looked to be her age, made her way quickly into the house. Sitting on the bed she thought about what would happen to them...the could end up dead like her or actually survive. Shaking her head she heard the footsteps of the girl. Violet didn't move as the girl walked in, she knew she could see her but in a second she was gone, staring at the girl as she stayed invisible.

The girl walked out and Violet followed, seeing Tate in the other room. She waved her hand at him to get out but either he didn't see her or he was ignoring her. The girl stepped in the room and Tate whispered in her ear. She felt bad for the girl, she was only in here for a few minutes and was already being attacked. When the girl left she stared at Tate, "You couldn't just let her be for at least one night?"

Audrey finally emerged from the family vehicle after much poking and prodding from her father. Aud didn’t feel like wandering the house that was now their new home. The sixteen year old wanted her old home, her old room and her old friends. Now they were here being forced to start over from scratch and f that wasn’t enough her siblings didn’t seem to care much one way or the other. It was a betrayal of the highest order. ‘Traitors’ the bespectacled teenager thought to herself as she looked up at the giant house in resignation.

For a split second she swore she saw a figure twitch away from one of the third floor windows. Using her hand to cast shade over her eyes Audrey saw nothing now and shrugged her shoulders writing it off as a trick of the lighting. Adjusting her glass the petite brunette finally entered the new and strange house. With a heaved sigh she pushed the heavy door open and ignored her younger siblings who were up to a rousing game of tag in the cavernous hall. Shuffling further into the house she came to a door, peeking inside she saw what could’ve been an office or a study at one time. It had its own entrance, awesome stained glass and a vaulted ceiling. “Sold” Aud murmured to herself as she slowly spun in a circle to take the room in. It was then Aud heard the cry of her twin.

Leaving what she hoped would become her bedroom the second of the sixteen year old Bennet twins went in search of her sister. “If there was a boy he turned himself invisible and snuck out the back door.” Aud replied sardonically to her sister as she glanced around and took no notice of any supposed boy. Climbing the stairs two at a time to join BB, Audrey couldn’t help but to continue tease. It was only her nature. “Unless it was a ghost…oooOOOOooooh” She teased coming to a stop beside Bronte.

“Did you find a room and why do you think there’s a boy here, what’d he look like?” Audrey asked curiously.

Bronte

She watched Audrey enter the house and actually look to be happy about something, which honestly was a pleasant change from the grumpy girl who'd been in the whole car ride over. Giving her a wry smile, she stuck out her tongue. "Definitely a ghost, then A," she giggled. Then she considered the questions. "Yeah, I found a room. It's pretty dark so I might actually get sleep for once." An uneasy feeling came over her for a moment, and she turned to glance behind her. She shivered; she could have sworn there was breathing right at her ear. "Uh... I didn't see any boy, really... I just heard him. He said something like 'you won't last' or something... Ugh, my fault for watching The Orphan on the way over here." She shrugged it off and looked back to her twin. "Oh, but I read on the house description that there's a basement! Come explore it with me!" she cried. She took Audrey's hand and dashed down the stairs without waiting for much of a response. Their last house had no attic, nor a basement, and being particularly fond of horror movies, BB really wanted to check them out.

Tate

He turned back to Violet. He looked at her carefully. "I thought you weren't talking to me..." he muttered. Looking out to the twins, he chuckled. "Ironic... last twins that were in here, one died." He crept up behind Bronte, breathing into her ear. He almost laughed when she turned and replied to who was very obviously her sister. "I wonder which one of these are going to have the same fate?"
He stopped short when they left, heading for the basement. "Aren't your parents still scaring anyone who enters the basement?" he asked. Vivien had full on shot and stabbed Ben for the last family that tried to move in. These guys were just kids; they didn't need to see that. "This could be bad..."

Unlike her two elder sisters, Emily noticed no spirits or apparitions, either before or immediately after she entered the large old house. Perhaps the entities in her vicinity were more cautious than the others. Perhaps it was because she was engrossed in examining the architecture of the building as she made her way inside. Or perhaps it was merely because Emily was less observant at the moment. Regardless of what the reason might have been, the effect was the same, and any oddness the house might have held for Emily remained un-elevated.

To be fair, she also wasn't moving with quite the speed of some of her siblings either, instead wandering idly through the old building as she made her way to her destination. The destination she had in mind, of course, was the basement. Being who she was, Emily had volunteered to check for any possibly harmful molds or fungi that might have been overlooked by whoever had last evaluated the house. Most likely being the coolest and most moist place in the building, it would make sense for her to check there first.

As Emily approached the basement staircase, and her younger siblings ran about behind her, it occurred to the girl that there might be all manner of dust, dirt, cobwebs, and other such undesirable substances in down those stairs. But, as she thought a moment later, the rest of the house had clearly been cleaned recently enough, and there was no reason to believe otherwise about the basement. Besides, she was going down there to look for possibly toxic substances, so those would hardly be important by comparison.

She was just taking the first few steps downward, when she heard footsteps behind her. Pausing on the stairs, Emily half-turned to see who was approaching.

Bronte

Stopping short when she saw her sibling, she blinked for a moment, the corner of her mouth twitching down. "What are you doing? Actually, not important. You're too small to go down into the basement, you shrimp," she muttered before casting looks about in case of her mother. "Besides, A and I have stuff to do down there. So, scoot." Heading down, she reached for a light switch before finally getting her fingers to it. "Whoa, this is cool," she smiled, hopping down two at a time. She looked into where Charles had once run his practice, its grizzly past a mystery.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Seeing as it's been awhile, should I post now, or continue waiting for the others?

ABC

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

I'm very glad to hear that. I've just finished posting, hopefully it is to your satisfaction.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

I love her ABC! She's wonderful and should be brilliant to roleplay with. Feel free to post in wherever you'd like.

ABC

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

I've finally finished my character, or at least her first draft. Sorry it took me so long, finding a suitable FC proved to be far more difficult than I initially thought. Anyway, if anything should be changed, please let me know. I finished her rather late at night, so the quality of my writing might have dropped a bit while working on it.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Firstly, go ahead and join, ABC! We'd love you! We have barely barely started, so you'd not be terribly far behind.

Secondly, Pusheen. I am sorry for getting back to you so late, my mistake. Mr Bennet was reserved, but I'm not sure if the user will ever post their character, which is frustrating. I'll message them soon to get an idea. We will use the other characters, but not as full characters. I suppose we could just post as them briefly to allow interaction. Does this make sense?

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Join us!

One of us. one of us.

ABC

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

I may be a bit late, but I'd be delighted if I might still be able to join in. If so, I can hopefully have the Thirteen Year Old finished sometime shortly after receiving the go-ahead. If not, I understand.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Before I post, quick question~. It says that the role of 'Mr. Bennet' is reserved, so is someone actually working to make that character or is that a mistake? Also, as for the rest of the family members that aren't taken, do we take them out of the picture or are we using them as NPC's~? Sorry, I'm just making sure I got this worked out in my head before I post so I'm careful with what I put in my posts and don't look stupid.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Hey, you guys. I'm just going to start, so feel free to post.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Thanks Pusheen!

Retro: Alrighty, I'll put you on reserved. I'm hoping to have some of the dead reserved. I'll be making a form for Tate pretty soon so... y'know, not him. Hahaha.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

@Maerorem-Caligo
I LOVE AHS though Murder House was my ABSOLUTE favorite season~! x3 Aww~ thank you! I love your character too. She's got her own unique style and I LOVE that in female characters. Can't wai to rp with you :3

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

hey there! I was hoping to reserve the other 16 year old twin and I was thinking about reserving another, is there anyone you want taken especially?

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Hey Pusheen. Thank you for taking an interest in this RP! I love AHS and have been curious about what would happen after the Harmons died for a long time.
I love, love, LOVE both of your characters! They're absolutely brilliant and I have the feeling it's going to be great RPing with you.

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again

Finished the Mrs Bennet role and I put up a WIP for the Eighteen Year Old Son role I finally finished the Eighteen Year Old Son role too~! :3

Re: American Horror: Murder House Again
