Herodotus Antiques is hiring.

I've been running the place for two years now and have come to realise that I may need a little extra help. Business is doing well, but even I need the occasional time off. I want to maintain a professional reputation for my store and make sure that my loyal customers will not be affected. Hence, the need for someone to step in when I'm not around.

[There's a pause for emphasis. Bela clearly means business.]

Ideally, I'll need someone who is highly detailed orientated, has steady hands and good customer service experience. In addition to this, I would prefer to have someone who has an interest in antiques and keen to learn more about them, but this isn't a prerequisite. I promise to train the individual well and pass on my knowledge to them regardless. They would be well-paid for their work, but if necessary, I can negotiate a salary, depending on experience.

Any interested individuals will need to fill in a short application form for consideration. Interviews will be confirmed at a later date, provided on receipt of more than one application.

Should you have any burning questions please ask them here or direct them to my private contact

Thank you for your time.

When I arrived, they insisted that I continue my schooling, despite it having nothing to do with my alleged reason for being here. But an antique shop in a different world with a different history sounds stimulating.
lempereur: (attention to detail)

voice; it's all good!

I'm holding one currently. But I only just arrived here a few weeks ago.

[ Does vigilantism count as volunteer work? ]

I worked for my guardian for many years. I'm good with deadlines.

He was an artist, as I am. We collaborated.

[ Which is a polite, not wanting to burden some poor woman with his life story way of saying that Yusuke stayed quiet while someone else stole all his work. Close enough? ]

[ antiques ... there weren't many of those on the ark, and far less on the ground with the grounders. raven may not be one who likes history, save for the stories of war and the growth of weaponry, but she can see the value in keeping old stuff. there's a reason she continues to hold finn's metal raven necklace very close to her heart, after all. ]

[ but being born in space and thrusted into a war on the ground means she didn't have much time to understand the reasoning and passion behind selling antiques. aren't they all incredibly damaged? ]

What does someone who looks after antiques do? Aren't you just waiting for someone to come in and buy something that's old?

What about the antiques that aren't in pristine condition? Don't they have the same value?

[ if it's chipped or broken, does it decrease in quality? it's a heavier question than raven would like to admit, but she still equates it with herself. once upon a time, she would've thought herself to be one of those pristine antiques, but now she thinks she wouldn't even make it to the shop. ]

[ this is what happens to her when she doesn't have a project to work on — she thinks too much. ]

You never told me that's what you do. [It's probably clear it's Enid voice, but she still sounds vaguely unsure Bela remembers it.] How antique are your things?

Hi. [Honestly, she's glad she recognizes her voice, and she, as her tone can only help to give away, smiles even.]

Wow, uh... I didn't think things that old could exist anymore.

How did that start?

[Because if Bella wasn't aware of any antiques, there had to be an interesting story behind it.]

Been keeping myself busy. Quit my one job and created my own with jewelry making. [It's something they strangely have in common now.]
