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 empty coke can hit the garage floor and rattled along until it came to rest by Annie’s wheel, not so far from the screwed up McDonalds bag. I sat up from leaning over the seat and took in a deep breath, exhaling it out and up over my sweat-slicked face. How the fuck was looking under seats in a truck such hard work?

I dived back down, twisting my arm to reach right under the seat and letting out an excited curse when I felt what I was looking for. With a grin finally on my face I wriggled my arm back out, not even caring about the assortment of things stuck to my phone, just relieved to have found it. A new phone was not a bill I fucking needed then, or ever.

I shifted heavily to get comfortable in the seat and set about getting the shit off my phone. There were a bunch of receipts, a whole load of fluff and a napkin, stuck to my phone with a gross old piece of gum and something sticky, which looked like coke. It was probably from the can I’d chucked out earlier, but I didn’t even drink the stuff so I had no idea when that’d gotten in there. My face darkened when it occurred to me and I sighed, very loudly. Jesse. Fuck, he was always making mess in my stuff and rearranging things. I glared as I pulled the receipt and fluff from my phone, and finally the napkin. I was about to bunch the gum up in it when I noticed something written, tilting my head to read the upside-down writing.

Nosy blue haired cookie chick, it read, and then a number. My eyes popped open. Shit, that was where that had gone! I hadn’t forgotten about Donna. I hadn’t been able to, not when I found out that Jesse knew a Donna too, and then that it was the same woman I’d met in the bakery when he showed me a picture. It was weird they knew each other too, but then Index was a small place so maybe it wasn’t that weird. But though I hadn’t forgotten about her, I’d lost the napkin with her number on it and hadn’t wanted to tell Jesse that, in case he thought it was on purpose. So I hadn’t been able to contact her about meeting up, and I didn’t want to do it through Jesse because one of the reasons I wanted to get in touch with Donna was to prevent myself going to Play with Jesse on my own. He was always bitching about it and the bitching was getting worse, especially when I was running out of excuses. I figured going with someone else, and a friend of Jesse’s too, would take the pressure off a little, slow things down. Slow Jesse down. The thought of clubs and wandering hands had me sweating with nervousness. Going clubbing together wasn’t the only thing I was running out of excuses to avoid.

I looked grimly back to the napkin in my hand and went to crumple it into my pocket until I thought better, glancing from it to my phone and shaking my head at myself. I unlocked my phone screen and started inputting the number, sighing proudly when I was done. There was no way I’d lose the number this time and I was curious about getting to know Donna from things Jesse had told me.

My phone buzzed and broke me out of my daydreams. I frowned before I even saw the name on the screen, easily able to guess it. I didn’t even bother to read the message under Jesse’s name. I just stuffed my phone into my pocket instead and glared out of Annie’s windscreen. Maybe I’d go for a drive, just because. My hands found the steering wheel and Jesse and his annoying texts dropped from my mind, Avery replacing them. I smiled. I still couldn’t believe she’d helped fix up Annie for me, that she’d even thought to do that. The thoughtfulness still blew my mind when I thought of it. She was so nice, almost too nice so that I ended up wondering when she’d turn on me sometimes. But she hadn’t, not yet. Just like Helios hadn’t. Why couldn’t everyone be nice like Avery or Helios, and not send annoying texts and want to meet up all the fucking time?

I looked up to the rear-view mirror to see myself glaring back. My gaze drifted to my neck and I frowned further, face scrunching up until I reached out to grab the mirror, pointing it the other way. Fuck it. I pushed my phone further into my pocket, letting the receipt and other junk fall to the floor of the truck, and yanked open the door, my boots hitting the ground hard when I jumped out. I slammed the door behind me and then looked to Annie with worry, fingers stroking her faded paintwork in way of an apology. I sighed, looking away from my reflection in her window and the scars that were just there all the fucking time. I shook my head and strode out of the garage, body tense. I didn’t have time for that. I had my phone and I needed to get ready for work already.
