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.

The morning of Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014 started out as a normal one. I got out of bed, got dressed, and bought my usual large black coffee from that nice coffee shop in West Elkton. When I got back to my place, my roommate was gone, per usual. However, the course of my day changed while I was sitting in our kitchen, drinking my coffee and eating a bagel.

I was payed a surprise visit by the U.S. Marshal on my case, which was pretty unusual. My case wasn't considered high-risk and he visited once a month pretty regularly, usually with pre-scheduled appointments where we could discuss whatever he felt was necessary. When I invited him in and had provided him with a bagel of his own, I was met with some exciting news - the case that I had testified was coming to an end. After nearly 2 years of legal proceedings, everything was settled. No appeals were going to be filed, and the U.S. Marshal's office had deemed that it was no longer necessary for me to be under the protection of the Witness Protection Program.

There was a problem of course. I hadn't done jail time for arson because of the deal I had made for testifying against some of my old friends. But, as a general precaution, I had been required to receive counseling for both pyromania and compulsive lying.

And that was how I found myself in the waiting room for a local therapist. It would be a few months before anything would be finalized and in the meantime I was required to start counseling. I had tried to tell myself that this was a good thing. I repeated it over and over in my head until it had reached the point that it was basically my personal mantra. I didn't know what to expect. I had never, ever spoken to anyone about what happened in Buffalo or about my parents' death. The two had been filed away in my mind, only to be constantly brought to its forefront by everyday occurrences. I would hear Poet shuffling around in her room and think of my mother and the way she was constantly moving around furniture and redecorating our house. I have never shed a tear, and I refuse to. I'm tired of being weak. It was my weakness that killed my parents.

"Ms. Ryder?"

Yes?

"Dr. Freeman is ready for you now."

Shit.
