    Summary

    Steve Rogers, former captain of the HMAS America, had been a rising star of the Royal Aerial Fleet until his airship was destroyed. He was pulled from the wreckage, the only survivor, and spent several weeks unconscious in a hospital bed while the world, and the Fleet, moved on without him. Now, he needs a new plan and a new career, both of which Nick Fury is willing to offer as part of his special SHIELD unit inside Scotland Yard.

    But while Steve waits to begin his training, Fury has a small mystery he needs some help with. A masked man has been roaming the towns and villages in the south of England, stealing food and breaking into trains and museums without taking anything of value. A man with a metal arm. It's Steve's home ground, the place he grew up in, so he's the perfect choice to investigate Fury's problem. Isn't he?

    Summary

    There's an old mansion miles away from civilisation where, they say, the strangest things happen. Four eccentric aristocrats summon ghosts and monsters, warping time and space. Their children haunt the local woods with sugar and smiles. Some say the staff aren't even human.

    They're nigh-constantly hiring cleaners, but most won't touch the dilapidated old place with a ten-foot broom. No cleaner brave enough to try has ever lasted more than a month.

    Your name is KARKAT VANTAS, and you have just been accepted as the latest cleaner of Farfelu House.

    (Essentially a mix of The Addams Family and Downton Abbey with a gallon of Homestuck poured in for good measure. Enjoy!)
