setting
Index was once a small and close-knit community, but the town located on the western side of Washington state has grown in recent years beyond anyone's expectations. It is the ideal place for those who work in Seattle but can't afford the city's high real estate prices, and for others the natural beauty attracts them to the town. And Index truly is a beautiful place - surrounded by thick evergreen trees, tall mountains and glistening rivers and lakes. While weather is typically rainy with overcast skies even this does nothing to take away from the beauty of the town, and it is only highlighted further when the heavy snow graces the town and caps the mountains in winter. To many, Index would seem like a paradise. And yet lurking beneath this visual beauty there is more to this town than anyone might ever imagine...

Current Time in Index, Washington:
rules
PLAYBYS: Sims from the games Sims 2, 3 and 4 are used to visually represent player’s original characters (no characters from within the franchise are allowed). But, you do not need these games to join and roleplay! If you wish, you can post a thread in our out of character / general forum and list as many physical details about your character as you wish. The members of Index will happily try and make a character for you, and you can choose which one you feel best fits your vision.

AVATARS: Avatars should display your characters face clearly and should be at least 200 pixels tall, and 200 pixels wide.

THREADING & POSTING: When threading with multiple characters, it is important that you post only when it is your turn. This can be acheived by taking note of who has posted before you, and remember you are to always post after them. If you were the thread starter, then it is your turn after the final person has joined your thread.

When creating a thread you are required to place a tag before the title. Here are a list of types of thread you can create and how to tag each one:

[Open] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, with no limit on the number of characters.
[Open - #] Anyone is welcome to join your thread, but there is a limit on the number of characters who can join. Replace the # with how many extra characters you will allow to join your thread.
[Private] Only specific characters can join your thread.
[Closed] This tag should be used for threads that only involve your character.

ACTIVITY: To keep threads moving, people are encouraged to post within three days when it is their turn. If you do not post within three days, and you have not asked people to wait for you, it is possible you will be skipped. Keep in mind this is just a suggestion. While we'd love for everyone to be active every day, we understand that real life and other hobbies are just as important, if not more. We want you to be active because you want to be, not because a rule is telling you to be.

MATURITY RATING: Public threads should all be PG. If roleplayers above the age of 18 wish to post content that could be could be considered graphic then it should be hidden from view using the [hide] [/hide] code, which will enable only those in the threads and administrators to view the content.

I made a noise at Helios’ words, not really hearing them. The cigar had smelled different, as in different to the ones my father used to smell. Similar, maybe…. But not the same. Quote Begin Maybe.. Quote End I replied. I thought it over and yawned again, still stretched sideways over the bed with my legs hanging off.

I frowned at the time - ten thirty four? It wasn’t late at all, but I felt slightly achy and ridiculously tired – all from sitting in a car all day. It was strange, but then I was also too tired to dwell on it too much. I was just fucking tired.  Quote Begin Yeah…. Away from the creepy woman. Quote End I agreed, grunting as I finally rolled over and awkwardly tried to get inside the bed while moving as little as possible.  Quote Begin Yeah, scopa, it’s a good game, you’ll like it…it’s fun… and then you can teach me chess like when we met, and I can beat my brother… Quote End  I wriggled underneath the comforter and pulled it up to my neck, losing half the words into my pillow as I collapsed into it. I rolled over onto my side and the mattress squeaked, making me roll my eyes and then chuckle to myself as I thought about it more. Squuueaakk.

My chuckling immediately stopped when Helios mentioned he was a morning person and I groaned, throwing an arm over my eyes.  Quote Begin Not early. Quote End  I groaned again, and the mattress groaned too when I shifted on it. Quote Begin What's early... like... not before.. ten? Quote End

That sounds like fun. Chess is a great game once you learn the basics. - And yes, I cannot wait to get away from her. She would be a good [i]''distraction''[/i ]though. Try picturing that in lingerie. I laughed, but it went from a sincere laugh to an awkward one. Did I just say that out loud?

I will probably be up at four. I like being outside in the early morning with a cup of coffee. But if you would rather wake up later that is completely fine, just let me know when to wake you up. My words were becoming a mumble as I felt myself feeling more and more tired, but I forced myself out of bed to turn out the lights and returned to the bed.

I snorted with laughter, pressing the comforter against my face that was screwed up with disgust.  Quote Begin Oh fuck, fuck, you did not… that’s so fucking… fuck. Quote End  Was all I could say, trying to shake the image out of my head.  Quote Begin That’s so gross! Quote End

Quote Begin Uh… just wake me up ten minutes before we need to leave or whatever. Quote End  I mumbled, shifting again and this time the mattress not making a series of sounds. I closed my eyes, sleep starting to set in, when I heard the flick of the light switch. My eyes shot back open. I stared out into the dark for a few seconds, wetting my lips, before I spoke up.  Quote Begin Helios? I.. uh, could.. could you turn the light back on? It’s.. it’s just… I wasn’t going to sleep yet, I was.. I was gonna do. . stuff.. Quote End  I lied, trailing off and trying not to let the blackness of the room feel like it was suffocating me. I closed my eyes again and pushed my face into the pillow.




The beach had been really fucking cold and I'd only looked out at the sea a second before I'd had enough, but the stores near it were all awesome. I held a bag that was mostly full of various candies but also contained a few other things - a bear plushy wearing a t-shirt with the name of the beach on it for Avery, a huge keyring for Mary-Ann because she always lost the fucking shop keys and a really awesome mug for myself that had a picture of the beach on it, but when it wasn't all rainy and shit. The stuff was so awesome and as I actually had money it was kind of hard not to buy it all. I even managed to buy a lighter when Helios was distracted, for him to light his cigars with (even if they did make him seem weird and old).

We were walking down the sidewalk, an ice-cream in my hand, when I noticed the place.  Quote Begin Hey, look, a tattoo shop. Quote End  I nudged Helios to get him to stop and went over to the window.  Quote Begin You could get a tattoo on your other cheek. Quote End  I taunted, and then stopped grinning when I noticed one of the pictures in the window.  Quote Begin Hey - look! They actually do fucking tattoos of ice-creams. Quote End  I stared at it in awe, and then glanced back to Helios, feeling a rush of adrenalin shoot through me.  Quote Begin I want to get it. Quote End

Oh I am sorry. I got back up to turn the light back on and immediately got back in my bed. In a way I was thankful for the suggestion of alcohol, it would actually help me sleep, or at least I hoped it would...




I had only purchased one thing all day. It cost me one dollar and eight cents to insert a penny into a coin press machine. It printed a scene of the beach with the name ''Oregon'' in the center. It was the only souvenir I ever cared to have from any location. I could not get one everywhere, but this one was special because it would be new to my collection and not a duplicate.

My eyes followed the direction Lenny was speaking and I smiled at his comment. I might have been more inclined to act on that idea last night. I laughed. I was not drunk today, and had no desire to get a tattoo in any risque locations.

I looked to him with surprise, and without saying a word I opened the door for him. Don't think, just do. I finally said, knowing that when it came to first tattoo's thinking too much about it would just lead to talking yourself out of it. I stepped inside and began looking at the images on the wall when a woman appeared, completely covered in tattoos and piercings. "Hey, can I help you?"

I nodded at Helios, still feeling the excitement at the idea of getting the tattoo. Just do. I stepped through the door after Helios, feeling a bit lost amongst all the pictures when I was inside.

Quote Begin Uh, Quote End  I said, staring a little at the woman who appeared. She had.. a lot of tattoos… and piercings… I shook my head and tried not to let it faze me.  Quote Begin Yeah, I wanted to get a tattoo – the one in the window, the ice-cream one? Quote End  I said. I showed her how big I wanted it, already knowing the location, and walked over to Helios as they went to do something in the back room.  Quote Begin This is so fucking cool.. I can’t believe I’m getting a tattoo. Quote End  I said, turning back when the tattooed lady came back.




I gripped at the edge of the tattoo chair, torn between watching and not watching as the pen thing buzzed down near my leg. Lifting my gaze to Helios, I sent him a grin. It didn’t hurt anything like I thought it would, just a strange scratchy, almost itchy pain that was easy to ignore with how excited I felt. Just the drawing thing they did before looked fucking awesome and I couldn’t wait to see it when it was finished.

When it was finally done I stared down at it, feeling… weird. But a really good weird. As I tried to listen to the shit the woman was saying I kept glancing down to it, even though it was covered. It… was something I actually wanted on my body. Quote Begin What do you think? Quote End  I asked Helios, looking up at him.
