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.

Quote Begin Yeah, sounds like a good idea. How’d you get here? I got the bus, but you know the way, so lead on… Quote End  I gestured in front of us, waiting for Sof to show the direction back to her home.

I couldn’t resist a bit of teasing before we got going though, starting to relax into her company. Quote Begin Yeah, take my coat off and I might freeze. It’s definitely colder here but I like it in a way. Quote End  I’d need to buy some more sweaters though, not that I minded, and maybe some boots or snow shoes for when it got frosty. I loved my sneakers but I had a feeling they wouldn’t hold up too great in the snow. Maybe I could find some snow boots-come sneakers as a compromise.  Quote Begin And I guess I’ll find out about your dark side if I stay with you. Leave my shoes out, find rocks in my cereal. Forget to dust and be woken up in the night by you stabbing me in my sleep. Quote End  I’d started laughing teasingly but as soon as I realised what I’d said and who to I froze, inhaling sharply. I turned to Sof with wide eyes. Shit. How could I be so stupid? Quote Begin Sorry! Quote End  I said as quickly as possible, hoping the damage wouldn’t be too bad and wishing I could rewind to a few minutes ago to stop myself.

Quote Begin I walked. I would've taken the bus, but I needed to clear my head and walking helps with that. Quote End I take a step forward, and hook my thumb around the belt strap. Quote Begin It's about a twenty minute walk, you think you're up for that? Quote End I roll my eyes to him, my head facing forward as a small smile appears.

Quote Begin I do too. I definitely belong in cold climate, when I lived in Rio de Janiero it was absolutely miserable. Quote End I exclaim, a hint of my Portuguese accent surfacing as the words roll off my tongue. Rio was absolutely beautiful, without a doubt one of my favorite cities, but I could never adjust to the weather; which is probably why it was the one city I spent the least amount of time in. As much as I miss travelling, it's time for me to stop running away from my past and settle down in the present. Quote Begin Rocks in your cereal? I would never do something that- Quote End I started, but my sentence is cut short when the hairs on my arms stand still at Ru's following words. My insides were cringing as flashbacks ran through my mind. Make. It. Stop. The last thing I wanted was for the pain to show on my face and make him feel even more like shit, so let's just play it out. I place my injured hand over my abdomen and force a disgust face, hopefully this doesn't back fire. Quote Begin Really Rupert? Of all people, I thought you'd be the last to ever speak those words. Clearly, I thought wrong. Why don't you go join those three assholes....Oh, and have fun finding a room. Quote End I scoff at him, turning on my heel and marching forward. My face softens as I try to hold back a giggle and whisper under my breath, Quote Begin Please Ru, don't take it seriously this one time. Quote End

I was so shocked, I could only stand there with my mouth open for a second, staring after Sof. After the initial horror at what I'd said had sunk in, I closed my mouth into a grim line and shook myself, tensing my previously frozen limbs with decisiveness. Sof's retort had my skin paling, but it also sent a glimmer of hope through me...

Quote Begin Sof, I'm sorry, it just came out and I totally wasn't thinking, y'know?Quote End I followed her, quickening my pace to keep up. I hoped I'd clocked the situation right, or I was just about to make things even worse... Quote BeginPlease say I'm not being the biggest jerk in Index and you're actually joking like you used to?Quote End I stretched my strides to catch up with her and caught the hint of a smile on her face. The tension in my muscles released and I sighed, then smiled. Quote Begin Hey, I can't believe you - you nearly gave me a heart attack! Is this all part of your dark side, huh?Quote End I took a deep breath and then chuckled, despite myself, still fondly shaking my head at Sof. It was crazy that she'd been through so much and yet underneath it all, really, she was the same Sof.

Quote Begin Clearly, you weren't thinking. Quote End I hollered back, my head remains forward in hopes of my smug grin from being revealed. But the sound of his footsteps growing closer meant I needed to pick up the pace, so I had enough time to force upon the stern face. Quote Begin A jerk is far from what I want to call you right now. Quote End I exaggeratedly groan, my smile still present when he, unexpectedly, is now at my side. The smile widens as I erupt in giggles, Quote Begin Oh thank goodness you played along! I was terrified it was going to backfire and you would've believed me, then my whole world would've crumpled down again. Quote End I take a deep breath. Quote Begin Maybe it is, but isn't my dark side fun? Quote End I tilt my head to the side, my smile fading into a smirk. It seems he doesn't suspect a thing, and I am relieved, mission accomplished. But in a way, I am proud of myself that I made the best out of that situation. I could have easily fallen to the ground and cried my eyes out, but I have gotten better at hiding my emotions.

Quote Begin Hey...I'm sorry. I didn't mean any of the things I said back there, I'm sure you already know that but it was a little hard for me. And yes, the room is still yours. Quote End

I let out a groan through my laughter, shaking my head. I still couldn't believe Sof had done that, even after the shock faded. It left me feeling relieved, of course, but also nervous that I'd so easily slipped up - and so soon, too. At the same time I didn't want to feel I was walking on eggshells round her, thinking that even Sof wouldn't want that. I needed to find the happy medium between being too scared to say anything and too stupid to recognise that joking about stabbing to a person whose family was stabbed to death was really, ridiculously stupid. Sof had to be a saint for not holding it against me.

Quote Begin Fun?  For you, maybe! For me? Can I get back to you on that when my heart's back in my chest? Quote End I quipped back, grin wide. Then my smile slowly faded to a smaller, sad one, and I nodded my head at Sof in understanding. Quote BeginYeah, and no - I'm sorry, I should've thought a bit more. Feel free to tease me forever about it in revenge. Anyway, 'you wanna lead the way to yours before I find some other way to put my foot in my mouth?Quote End I said, offering Sof another small smile.
