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.

Dude, you got this. Ten more minutes and you'll be glad you still have a foot.

Since Vegan Barbie was taking her time with the menu, not offering to step back for us while we ordered since I pretty much knew exactly what I wanted, I decided to bring back the conversation where we left off.

Dude, speaking of elitists, I had a scoff with one those turd goblins the other day. I might have actually went too far, I said, and now that I was going to tell the story I worried slightly that he would be on the opposing end of my argument. Fuck, I'd tell him too how it was. I was on a WoW forum, and this little uh... gnome warlock was asking for help because her void seemed nerfed as fuck. Well some Horde shitface starts bitching to her about how the only real race that should be able to roll a warlock is a blood elf and that nothing else made any sense. I shook my head, Like seriously? I mean don't get me wrong, I understand the argument, I honestly do, but this guy was fucking angry, right? I mean he was telling her off so hard it was ridiculous. So I had to reply, right? I was all - Listen you little shit, this is a fucking game, so lay off. I'm sorry your vast knowledge of WoW lore is all you have to make you happy since you've fucked everything else in your life up so hard. I might have went too far because someone reported my ass for harassment. Can you believe that shit?

When I finally stopped yammering, I noticed vegan bitch had finally ordered, but was now turned around basically gawking me. Can I help you?
"Could you watch your mouth? You do realize you're in public, right?"
Was she fucking serious? Watch my mouth? Had her perfect virgin ears never heard swearing before? Vegan, and probably a goddamn little church girl too.
Listen, Mary Sue, a little bit of advice, your boyfriend doesn't think it's cute that you're a vegan. He thinks it's really fucking annoying. I paused to take in her expression, which was somewhat horrified. I was sure she wasn't expecting any kind of response other than maybe sorry or... Shit I don't know. Yeah, that's right. He told me when we were watching Hannibal and eating steak.

Shit, this chick was actually funny. I laughed under my breath in case doing it outright got me another glare from the annoying girl in front of us. Maybe I'll just start gnawing on her arm if she takes much longer. Probably taste like brussel sprouts or something anyway. Eurgh. I muttered under my breath, leaning sideways so Michelle could hear me and then making a face. Yeah, weird thought maybe but if I was a cannibal or something I so wouldn't be going for the vegetarians.

Turd goblins? That's a new one. I like it though. I grinned, actually wanting to hear what she was about to say. I mean, any distraction from my growling stomach would be freakin' heavenly right now. Maybe I was that thing that meant you passed out whenever you didn't eat enough. Sure as hell felt like it right now. Shit, really? Was she a new player or just having trouble with a character that she hadn't noticed before? I mean, that guy was an ass. Why even comment on shit like that unless you're going to offer something productive instead of forcing his opinion on everyone else? It was probably some other die hard WoW nerd that reported you. They all have a serious case of fuckin' butthurt, probably because the live at home with no jobs and jerk off to furry porn. Fuckin' weirdos. I think you were right and I don't even know why you got reported. I frowned, pissed off like on her behalf or something like that. I had my share of experiences like that, getting blasted just because you tried to remind people it was just a goddamn game.

So maybe it was because I was already pissed that I reacted kinda badly to the chick in front of us being a nosy bitch. Woah, hold up. Last time I checked this was a freakin' free country. I don't see any kids, if there was I'd probably clean up the language yeah. Are you five or something and curse words are still for the 'bold kids with bad upbringings' or whatever? I shook my head and looked at her just freakin' bewildered that she had that kinda nerve on her. I laughed at what Michelle said, man that was classic. Yeah look we didn't complain about you holding up the line for your shitty veggie order when you could've actually gone somewhere that caters to that shit. So, I dunno, why don't you go get off your high horse and learn some manners of your own before you start trying to correct other peoples'.

The corner of my lips curled up into a smirk; as usual my brain was just going weird places with things. Oh em gee, she's groot, I whispered. I imagined someone eating vegetables so much that they actually turned into vegetation themselves. Or better yet his bitchy finicky girlfriend. I found it kind of odd, though, that I was making a Guardians of the Galaxy reference, since I honestly kind of thought the movie wasn't all that great. Highly overrated on the tumblr community, if you ask me.

Damn, this guy was showing himself to be the bees' knees, or whatever, and I already felt like we were going to have to hang outside of this little adventure. I was almost a little worried he would go on some tangent about how important it was to know the lore of the game you were playing, how you miss out on a whole aspect of the game when you just plow through. I mean, yeah, it added another dimension to it, but shit... if you want a roll a goddamn warlock roll a goddamn warlock.

Dude, you know that's right, that's so right. Furry porn, shit... oh my god I didn't.. like what the hell is even wrong with people? I get that shit on my dash sometimes... fuck if I knew how. And I mean it's always the most disturbing shit like, I don't care you good you are at drawing cat penis okay? Damn. I don't know, said some shit like my post wasn't helpful and contributed to the drama... God... I just hate people sometimes.

Oh, my god, this was just.. this was epic. I never got out much, and the last time I had confronted someone for being a douche was at the Halloween party and the RHPS reject was just... really trying to make that waitress feel like shit. I couldn't help it if it gave me a little high, maybe I was a bully myself, but I was always proud of the fact that I could stand up for myself. My posture always straightened, and I just felt like my eyes lit up and I was finally a bad ass mutha.

"Are you both that uneducated that you can't find better suited words that aren't so vulgar?" She asked, before finally deciding that there was nothing at Five Guys that would suit her finicky bullshit. She didn't even apologize to the cashier, or us, of course.
"Well, it looks like there's nothing here for those who don't want murder and poison for lunch," was her last statement before almost storming off, her ass swinging side to side as if this bitch thought she was on a catwalk. I gave Theo one of those, "so that just happened" looks, rolled my eyes and finally turned to the cashier.
"I'm going to make this so much easier on you. I want a number two, and uh.. you have A-1 sauce right? I want a ton of that on it instead of ketchup. I was handed a cup and a receipt with a number, and I stepped to the side while Theo made his order. Once he was finished, I headed for the drink station and was again overwhelmed at the options. I knew I'd made my mind up about what I'd wanted, now I'd forgotten it, but I went with the orange fanta, and added some raspberry flavor. This was going to be very good... or disgusting.
I don't understand that it's 2015 and somehow society still thinks there is a difference between shit and crap.

I laughed at what she said, but he comic book nerd in me had me joking back in a way that was probably more confusing than anything. Please, that’s like insulting to ‘Flora colossi’ everywhere. Plus, Groot’s a monarch, and there’s no way a bitch like that would ever be a Queen of Planet X. I stopped then, finally catching myself and just wondering what the hell was up with me? Couldn’t talk normally for five seconds, no? Whatever, I was so blaming it on being just so blazed. Man, I loved that movie though. I mean aside from the hype it got on release I was looking forward to it since it was announced they were making it. Like Guardians of the Galaxy, man my dad was into that comic and everything. And shit, it was a really freakin’ good movie, what the fuck was with people who didn’t like it just because of how popular it had ended up. That was no way to judge anything.

Not helpful, and I guess his shit-posing was just, like, the epitome of the freakin’ word or something? Man, people suck, so you’re not alone with hating them. And screw ‘sometimes’ – I hate people most of the time. I rolled my eyes, just really kinda annoyed from hearing about it all, and I hadn’t even been involved. It was just the whole idea of people hiding behind their monitors acting so damn tough. So stupid. Games are great and all, but man, it’s the fanbases that suck the fun outta it. I grinned then, because it was just really cool to be talking to someone who knew what I was talking about and like seemed to agree. Too awesome.

Honestly I kinda zoned out for the rest of the discussion with Ms. Veggie Burger or whatever, my gaze skipping over her pissy face and on to something way more appealing. Then menu was goddamn beautiful to me right now, full of all sorts of meat based food that was probably dripping in grease and - oh, shit was I drooling? I quickly wiped a hand across my mouth to check, but nah, I was good. No unwanted saliva here, thanks. I looked back at Michelle just as the chick left. Oh hey, you got rid of her! I said, sounding kinda really happy about it. But I said it too loud, and the angry veggie chick stopped long enough to glare at me before stalking off, like her look was supposed to send some kinda message. I shrugged and waited for Michelle to order, practically leaping at the counter when it was my turn. Uh like I don’t know the number but I want a bacon cheeseburger, a bacon cheese dog and two sides of fries, one Cajun style and one Five Guys style, cool? Oh and a Patty Melt. The guy shot me a knowing look, like they got stoners in here practically ordering the whole menu all the time. Shit, it was Washington so like it was pretty likely. Maybe I earned originality points for ordering off the Five Guys secret menu? Probably not since like everyone seemed to know about that now.

Grabbing my receipt and cup with a quick ‘thanks’, I headed for the drinks. Shit, how come whenever you were baked and about to get something it was only then you really realized how much you wanted it. Like fuck it, but I had a serious case of cotton mouth going on right now. Along with the munchies. Oh shit, the Michelle chick was talking. Huh? Shit, y’know I wanna be smooth and like save that, but I totally spaced man, can’t even pretend I heard you. I grinned at her, trying to show that I hadn’t done it on purpose or anything. Like she was cool and as far as people went listening to her was probably more entertaining than listening to most boring, everyday people. When she was done I grabbed my own cup, filling it 50/50 with Coke and Fanta, like my favourite combo since I was a kid.

Yeah, I didn't get the Flora joke, but I nodded my head and smiled. Shit, I was glad I didn't say anything out loud, because I could tell bro was excited about the movie, or fuck, maybe he was excited about everything. I don't know, I mean it had its funny moments, but the end just felt.. well it was just nothing like the Avengers movies and the whole franchise in general. Shit - even the Agents of Shield show was just so bamf. How the hell did they score the effects budget for that show? And why the hell did I let someone talk me into watching it? I hated being addicted to like.. eight hundred TV shows.

Not my favorite Marvel movie, but yeah, it was alright. I could at least admit that much, and of course I had to watch it because that whole damn universe was just full of easter eggs. I shrugged with the rest of the conversation, because while I completely agreed about how bitchy and whiny a fan base could be, I didn't want our whole conversation to be such a downer, and veggie bitch already had us in the trenches. But it was the truth, sometimes I even thought about leaving the guild and just flying solo.

At this point I'd gotten my drink and was sipping away at the fruity, sugary carbonated nectar of life and had ranted about bitchfacefuck when Theo came back. Uuh... fuck.. I don't know, I was just bitching about ol girl. God... this drink tho.. Hot damn. I want one of these machines in my house, but then again I would be like.. Jabba the hut. I took a deep breath and tried to listen for my number. Fuck wait... what number was I? Shit.. oh wait.. was it on my receipt? Yes, I pulled it out of my pocket, and it of course promptly fell on the floor. Goddammit, I muttered before picking it up. Eighty two. Alright. They just called 79. Shouldn't be long.

Over here okay? I asked as I headed for a spot in the corner, away from where most of the patrons had croweded to.
