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.

My heart sank, which in its own was kind of fucked up. Why did I care? I mean yeah, I liked hanging out with Gabe, but I didn't think that... I mean I hadn't realized that he'd become a part of my life that I would miss already. So many people came into my life and were just.. gone like nothing and it wasn't a big deal... usually.

You're running away. I said, almost a little bitterly. I wasn't going to step on his toes and offer to go with him. Shit, I honestly didn't want to leave. As fucked up as it was, I was curious about this. And it wasn't like I had any family that would mourn me if I was gone. Yeah, that's kind of morbid, but it's the truth. I didn't wish for death, but it didn't seem like Vincent wanted to hurt me. And... as for Gio - I had no idea. I don't think he even knew what the fuck was happening. I would sure as hell need to question him later.

No, he didn't hurt me. I looked him straight on as I said it. I sighed, listening to him and just...  I mean fuck he was even admitting to bailing on me. I understand him not wanting to chance it, but did Vincent even know he had the video?

I think you're overreacting, Gabe. I don't think they even know about the video. Shit, I didn't. Maybe I could find out? Before you just up and run away? I was grasping at straws, but in the back of my mind I knew I wasn't going to convince him. And I knew it was selfish of me to try. I'm sorry, I said, putting my hand over top of his, and I couldn't stop myself from gripping tight. Just.. fucking call me, okay? Man... I haven't talked to a single fucker from when I lived in Seattle. Just fucking call me.

I let Michelle talk, silently watching her – just letting her get it all out. It would take something ridiculous to make me change my mind, I knew that, but she didn’t and was going to just have to learn to accept that. When she was finally done I nodded. I went to talk, but stopped, a small smirk spreading across my lips as I snorted and nodded again.  Quote Begin If you want me to call, I’ll call. And you can always call me if you want someone to talk to. Quote End  I squeezed her shoulder once more before easing my hand from under hers.

This was difficult. I’d made up my mind, but it was still difficult, especially because when I’d made up my mind I didn’t think Michelle would give a rat’s ass about what decision I’d made. It didn’t help that she was actually irritating me a little, but I kept trying to remind myself that she’d seen the same shit I had and was probably going crazy over it. It didn’t stop me gritting my teeth and sighing at the thought I was apparently ‘overreacting’ though.  Quote Begin Call it that if you want. I see it as more recharging, recouping. There’s no point in staying if I don’t have the energy to do shit. Quote End  I said simply, and shrugged.  Quote Begin It doesn’t make a difference if they know or not either, I don’t give a damn about that. It’s more reason to get out of town a while if they do, but not the reason. Quote End  I tried to explain.

I took a few steps away and stretched out my arms, hearing the bones in my spine click.  Quote Begin Look, Quote End  I turned again, facing Michelle,  Quote Begin Mish… I’m just trying to come to terms with this crazy shit. Your ex’s out there playing teen fucking wolf or I don’t even know what, Jesus Christ, it can’t be easy for you either, I get that… but I know I need a break from this. I just know, or you’re gonna have a zombie to deal with on top of wolf-man. Quote End  I tried to joke a bit, but I just felt tired. I flopped down onto the couch again. I had to think about packing at some point, though I was planning on going light.  Quote Begin Anyway, I always wanted to Australia, see the world a bit. Then at least if I come back and the teenage mutant ninja turtles are waiting for me I’ve ticked something off my bucket list. Quote End Hey, if a mutant wolf man existed then anything could be possible, right?

My immediate thought was that this was the same shit that happened with Gio. He'd leave, say we'd keep in touch, and the calls turned into texts and then the text turned into nothing. Then suddenly he was back on the doorstep wondering why I was distant. Maybe Gabe was a different person in that respect, maybe he wasn't. I had counted on the school year to get Gio back. I didn't have that with Gabe. He had nothing to tie him down here, so if he found a better place, why wouldn't he stay? Especially when I had just complicated things. 

Yeah, you say that, I said, my disappointment faded and a weak smile finally revealed itself. My muscles eased, not because I was relieved, but because I'd given up on coercing Gabriel to stay. Why was it that I wasn't wanting to do the same thing? Honestly? Morbid curiosity was the closest answer I could find. Was there a reason they didn't clear me or use some of the freakish mind tricks they were trying to make me forget? Maybe they wanted me for something. Maybe that's why Vincent spoke to me - shit maybe he had something planned from the moment we met at the Christmas dance. 

That's okay I love zombies, I said, and quickly followed with a wink. I knew that kind of response had to be annoying, but it just spilled out. Nervous, I guess? No, I understand, and I don't mean to hold you back. I want you to go, have fun and all that shit. Don't go showing off that video, though. I don't want you to end up as dog food, yanno. I followed Gabriel, but I didn't take seat on the couch. Instead I stood behind it, leaning onto the backrest, near his head. I couldn't fight the urge to run my fingers through his hair a little. If this was going to be the last memory of him I had for a while, I didn't want it to be tense. I still wasn't happy about his decision, but I'd accepted it. 

If they're here, they'll be eating pizza in my apartment. And I wasn't kidding. My freezer was pretty much nothing but stacked DiGiornos. We'll have a welcome back party, no dogs allowed.

Quote Begin No dogs allowed, sounds like my kind of party. I’ve decided I’m definitely a cat person. Quote End  I said, angling very slightly into Michelle’s touch so I could glance at her out the corner of my eyes. Despite the cheer in my voice, I wasn’t smiling. My thoughts were too conflicted, my gaze trailing up Mishy’s arm as I debated whether to ignore the irritation at her physical display of affection, her motivation behind it. I blinked, suddenly realising how tired I was at the heavy pull of my upper lid, and put my paranoia about Michelle down to exhaustion. I could feel it so strongly in the greasy ache of my skin and the sluggishness of my movements as my adrenalin dried up. Who knew witnessing the trailer for the next crappy supernatural tv show would be so tiring?

Her unease over me flashing the video around like I was a complete moron had grated on my nerves, but I let it go. I assumed it was out of worry and didn’t have the heart hold that against her. How could I? It hinted Miss Mishy cared more than she’d previously let on and I sighed into a smirk.

Before Michelle could remove her hand I turned and place mine over her arm, stilling her into a wait as my eyes found hers.  Quote Begin I’ll hold you to that welcome back party. Quote End  I smirked slightly and my grip on her arm weakened. My gaze, however, intensified.  Quote Begin I’ll be back. Quote End  I kept Mishy’s gaze locked with mine. Quote Begin I promise. With a shitload of tacky souvenirs maybe, but I’ll be back. ‘You understand that? Quote End  I asked, searching her eyes to try and make sure she did. I needed her to understand that I would. It would make the decision I’d made feel less like abandonment.

My head must have been tired of the craziness of last night, since I was automatically going with the more normal train of thought. I've never had a dog, so I wouldn't know. Used to have a cat. She was... a little shithead but I loved her. I wasn't going to mention that she was Gio's cat. It felt so weird now without her around, but I didn't miss cleaning of the litter box.

I was jarred back to reality with the serious turn. I smiled with the corner of my mouth, my face softened with... fatigue? defeat? Probably both. Yeah, and you should save the tackiest for me, I paused, and then I spoke, as excitedly as I could, Maybe even a lime green crop top. I pulled both arms back to my sides, resting them now in my jacket pockets. But yeah, I do. I understand. Wasn't it weird, though? What made people so different? That he wanted to get away from it and I wanted to stick around and find out more. Maybe I was a complete moron, naive to the danger. Have you figured out your first stop?

If I had the time or money, I'd think about meeting him at one of the closer places. It was more of a daydream than anything, since more than likely I'd be stuck here, working at the music store and my most exciting trip would be to the mall when I had some extra money to spend on some new shoes. I found that okay, for the most part. I never had much mojo to do anything else.
