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.

I thought about joining her, perhaps it was my original intent, but watching her step in front of the mirror I changed my mind. I was sleepy, "fat" with dinner, and yet I felt an unsettling feeling creeping over me. A mix between lethargy and restlessness. A blend of pure satisfaction and... "is that all?" Like I could already see that the fun of this life would be short lived and it wouldn't take long for me to begin to wish I'd died in the river. The last few hours with Sofia had been an extreme high. I'd never experienced a high from heroin, dilaudid, or anything more than a Molly, but this had to be on par. And just like a true junkie, the cost wasn't necessarily to me but to the people around me - this time Sofia, some girl who already had enough trauma in her life without me.

Was it guilt? Not exactly, no. It was the realization that I'd become pretty much parallel to what I hated. People who cared only about their own indulgences and letting the rest of society pay for it.

There's a cabinet with everything you need, to the left. I started to head back for my bed, maybe so that I could sleep through my sudden wave of guilt and self-pity, but I didn't. I was again, curious. I wasn't finished learning from my little experiment. I grabbed her wrist and turned her to face me. My eyes caught hers, but not with any intent of manipulating her.

Do you understand at all what I've done to you?

I turned my head to its direction, nodding as I acknowledged the cabinet. I looked over, expecting him to still be at my side, but instead was making his way to the bed. Did he not rest as I did? Because lord knows I was completely drained after the night we had. He is a vampire, so he probably doesn't get nearly was tired as a human does. But a nice steamy shower sounded heavenly. Before I had the chance to inspect what goodies I had to work with, I was whipped around to meet his face once again. Yet his question caught me off guard. What he's done to me? I opened my mouth to speak but remained silent as I searched his eyes for any clue on what he was getting at. No I don't..What are you talking about?

What would change if I told her? Could that actually break it? I mean could it break the bond I'd made with my blood? A part of me hoped that it wouldn't, but then again a part of me did hope there was something I could do to erase it if I needed. I couldn't imagine it could be that convenient. I had used Sofia as my experiment, but there was a part of me that hated myself for what I'd done.

I let go of her arm, my own dropping to the side and I just sort of smiled and shook my head. The soup. Do you remember? Did it taste a little funny to you? Finally I leaned against the door frame, resigning myself to a tell-all moment. I'd never done it before, but apparently my blood is as close as it gets to a love potion.

I wasn't sure what to expect after that. A punch in the face? A slap? Sofia was still a mystery to me, and I kind of liked it that way.

The hospital visit seemed like it was ages ago, even though it really wasn't. It probably felt that way because I haven't gone a single day without seeing him, whether it was in my dreams or around town, I couldn't get him out of head.  Yeah, a little...But what does that have to do with any of this? I crossed my arms, is he seriously going to tell me now that the soup was expired and that's why it tasted weird? Because that's what I had already assumed. But what he said next, I had hoped the soup was expired.  W...what.. I breathed.  You mean to me that your.. I gulped, my breathing started to grow heavy.  Blood, was in the soup? And it...  Compelled me? Hell, I don't know. 

I grabbed his arm as soon as the room started to spin. I need to sit down before I pass the fuck out.  I don't know if he expected me to react by slapping him across the face and storming out or what, but that is definitely not who I am and how I deal with situations. I prefer talking things out, and this situation definitely needed to be talked out and I'd rather be conscious when we do so.

I'd seen this in so many patients, student nurses, family members, people weak minded who easily let the sight of a few drops of blood get to them. I quickly pulled her back to the bedroom and sat her down on the edge of my bed and I kneeled down in front of her.

Sofia, look at me. It was sort of a command, but not one I enforced like I could. What had I expected? Did I think it would be smooth sailing once I told her? Or some explosive dramatics? I didn't know - it was simply a compulsion of my own. A part of my fun and games experiment. 

Sofia, you're allowed to be angry, confused, whatever... but stick with me. I can do so much for you. What the fuck was I even promising? No, I could do a lot for her, and she could do a lot for me. She seemed scared to me that night when I first met her. I wasn't planning on turning her, no, I didn't know enough about this to give that kind of life to someone else. But from what I knew there would be advantages of taking my blood to her as well as me. Whatever it was that had her on edge, if it was something real and tangible in this world, perhaps I could give her power over it. 

I can make you strong.
