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.

Hmmmm, Mr. Lonely was a bit weirded out. I wondered where he was from, actually. He was acting like no one had ever made small talk with him before. Wasn't that a typical American thing? Small talk? I'd been casually talked to in places like this since I was old enough for it not to be creepy. No one ever expected anything of it, and personal things were obviously too much to talk about with strangers. But small talk? That was typical. And apparently, this guy didn't really pick that up.

I just sort of looked at him and smirked, shaking my head a little bit. "Well, hopefully, things will get better soon."

I raised two fingers to get the bar attendant to come over, talking to Arturo at the same time. "You're not from around here, are you?"

I shrugged when Li said things would get better. I wanted time to think and be alone and drink, but the woman was speaking to me and I could not just brush her off. What if she was having a bad day? She was just trying to be nice to me, I thought. I did not look at her when she talked, but at her hand as she waved the man who had served me over. She was familiar with these kinds of places. It was clear in the way she acted. She spoke to me without invitation and understood how to get the bar tender's attention and spoke to other men freely. 

Uh... originally I am from Mexico. I said, in response to her question. I had found that most people could tell that I was not American-born. I generally thought that it was my heavily accented English that gave it away, although Avery had helped me much with grammar and the custom of the Americans.

I thought about Avery. Maybe she would be willing to help me with my problems. Without Natalia I did not know what I was going to do. Should I return to Mexico? I had become familiar with my life in Index. I knew every part of my small home well. I had friends in my place of work. I had even been through the cold winters that we did not experience in Reynosa.
