If I am with a free person character and I'm weeding their garden, sweeping their floor, serving them, bathing them... I don't consider it chores, I consider it roleplay.
If I am with other slaves and we are squashing grapes, doing dishes or laundry... again, I don't consider it chores, I consider it roleplay.
If I'm actively engaged with another player, then I'm roleplaying. I don't think I differentiate the types of roleplay into chore or not chore related so I don't even now if I could break it down.
However, if someone tells me OOC that I have to go write X amount of lines of "chores" and send in a notecard, to me that is what I think of when people say chores, and that I rarely do.
The exception being when I chose to engage in solo writing for my own character development or amusement, or because I'm furthering a story with someone via notecard. Again though, it's not chores, it's writing.
Edit to Add: As a panther girl I did a lot of solo writing: hunting, setting up camp, making my clothing. I did it because I enjoyed it, but I didn't think of it as chores or chore RP. As a slave I sometimes do this as well, when there isn't anyone around to roleplay with I use my broom animation and write about trying to keep the entrance to the tavern clear... until Asea drops more snow on me!
Agreed! Chores with another person is rp something we are all here for...no?
I also have written out chores and rped alone because, it moved a story forward, and sometimes it just helps with the mindset of the character. Generally it is done on a notecarad and dropped on those it effects in rp also, and left with them to use or not, as they please.
I do object to being sent away from the only rp on a sim, to do chores (if they expect me to notecard them or not.) And quite frankly, I will assume, I am not wanted around those people. Now I have no issue with that at all, Ala will probably be miffed, as her gossip gleening will be hampered, but, me, her typist, won't worry. However, I am unlikely to go and sit on a poseball, and do the chore alone, just to feed someones ego.
MY time is valuable to me, so while the person sending Ala away, might not want her included in the current scene and sent her off to do some task, it is MOST likely the task will be faded to black. Assume it happened, but don't expect a notecard. Meanwhile my avatar and I will be elsewhere.
I do agree with Thyri, a lot of people don't know how to interact with slaves other than serving, sexy time or "sending them off to do chores". Slaves actually had time to relax...shocking I know. To socialise and gossip. Because, if you worked her hard all day long, she is gonna be tired, and I am thinking most men, would get a little upset if their slut got them all aroused and ready for the 'wild thang', but fell asleep with his hard schlong wrapped in her grasp....well before she finished sating him.....course I could be wrong on that
