No one really thinks about it - it's just...there. But someone has to make it, and in a world filled with Walmarts and Ikeas, it's a tough industry to break into - that's why an apprenticeship with one of the world's best artisans seems like such a phenomenal opportunity. Sure, the apprentice figured she'd be doing grunt work at first - sanding, sweeping, answering the phone - but the artisan had some very different ideas for how she could pay her dues.MC is a young craftsperson (craftsman? craftswoman?) who's ecstatic to pick up an apprenticeship with a rising star. YC isn't more than a decade or so older, running their business out of their own workshop and showroom and being rewarded with write-ups and a long list of commissions.
There are lots of ways this could go:
Regardless, there are bondage shenanigans afoot and MC definitely didn't sign up for them. We can discuss how heavy things go and where we are on the reluctant - NC scale, but I'm definitely looking for both strong character development and creatively incorporated BDSM elements; this (NSFW) Tumblr can be a good source of inspiration, and anything that isn't a direct "no" on my F-List is up for discussion.
- Maybe YC actually makes a great deal of their money selling custom fetish furniture, and needed an in-house tester.
- Maybe YC likes the idea of getting free labor out of someone they can have sweeping in chains, or kneeling nude under the desk during a consultation.
- Maybe YC is actually very into the mentoring aspect of the role, and thinks that a strict, hands-on approach is the way to go.
