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.

Who knew how difficult it would be to buy a bag of donuts? Even worse was that I needed my donut fix and I was surrounded by the scent of various pastries and baked goods. It would take a load of self control to stop myself from buying the whole bakery.

I looked at the blue-haired girl on the ground, but didn't make a move to help clean up. Maybe it was the nice or courteous thing to do or whatever and I could make some excuse, but when it comes down to it, I just didn't want to. I wanted to get some donuts and leave before I was sucked into more drama with some other self-important soccer mom.

I snorted at her comment, Yeah, only like 99 percent of the population I said, slightly under my breath, but not really caring if anyone heard.

A majority of the cake went into the trash, which was sad regardless of the ridiculous price. Cake is cake. The employee who'd eventually grown a pair disappeared, further delaying my service. I think my stomach growled audibly, but there was nothing to be done except wait.

Apparently waiting meant conversing with the blue-haired lady. I'd saved her cake, couldn't she repay me by leaving me alone? I glanced at her doubtfully. She probably wouldn't be happy with any of my suggestions if she was the kind of person who spent $60 on a birthday cake. I don't think I could help you, since my diet consists of takeout and processed snacks.

Mindy seemed to be returning, somehow gracefully towing along a broom, dustpan, huge mop-buckety thing and a mop while I returned to the disaster scene. I think I got the bulk of it, I said, kind of defeated, and already roaming through my mind of just what I could do with this short notice that would be anywhere nearly as cool as that cake was.

Eh, sometimes they make up for the suckage, I said to Ruby, a hint of a smile through my overly sad, defeated feeling. I hated so much that the whole mood and excitement of one day could be ruined in a split second. I just had to make it work, though, I was that person that tried to do that for everyone else, to fix their bad day and eventually find a smile in there somewhere. Surely I could do it for myself.

And mine doesn't? I know that I should try to eat better, but damn, what's the point of a long life without simple pleasures? I moved away from the disaster, which Mindy seemed to be taking care of rather quickly. Was this something that happened frequently? I hoped not. I found the shelf at the front of the counter displaying the pre-made cakes and such. It just felt sorta risky to me, since you really didn't know how long that shit had been there and it's not like anyone would tell the truth if it was't just as fresh as fresh could be.

There was a cake with chocolate and raspberries, which was on the surface tempting, but to me I didn't like raspberries so much as shit that was flavored like raspberries. See? Processed shit wins when it comes to taste. Strawberries were a little better, but I didn't see anything with strawberries. A few pies, which... I don't know, I know it wasn't for me, it was for Jas but I really didn't want pie with champagne. I looked over, and saw that Mindy was already rolling the mop water back around to the employee door, and stood behind the register again.

"Alright, sorry about that, can I get you something else or?"
You should wait on her, first, she probably knows what she wants. I have no idea.

The blue haired woman was strangely optimistic. Or I was just overly pessimistic. That's probably it. But still, I could count on one hand the number of people who didn't make me turn around and walk in the other direction when I saw them. The woman herself was kind of verging on annoying, but I could excuse her persistence because she was probably just trying to be polite. It was my fault for getting involved anyway, and watching that bullshit go down would have been infinitely worse than having to have a short conversation with this stranger.

If you say so, I said dismissively. I probably should've agreed with her or something to make her drop the subject. I'd run into people who had a really positive view of humanity who tried to convince me not to hate people. Those were the kind of people that made me hate people (more than I already did).

It dawned on me that the woman was probably buying the cake for her lover. I mean who buys champagne and candles and fancy cake for just a friend? I was usually quicker to the draw on figuring these things out, but honestly I hadn't cared enough to really think about it. My opinion of this woman was maybe verging on neutral if I was being generous, and I guess I was, only because she lost her cake. He appreciation for cheap food was not lost on me, connoisseur of powdered donuts. Hell, I used my oven as a storage container.

Your boyfriend will probably be happy with whatever I said with a shrug. All he would really want was a good screw anyway.

I perked up when it was finally my turn to give my order. The light at the end of the tunnel was visible, thank God. Yeah, I'll have two dozen powdered donuts, and uh... that's it. I had a brief argument with myself over whether I could afford this really good looking creme filled cupcake, but I lost, unfortunately. If I really wanted cupcakes they wouldn't come from an expensive bakery. I'd probably go home and gorge myself on the donuts anyway.

At this point I was almost ready to decide to grab some ice cream from Walmart and call it a day, until I noticed the chilled display. Holy wombat how had I not seen this? I seriously could have eaten everything in it, but for the most part I couldn't take my eyes away from this cheesecake that was coated in chocolate and I mean... strawberries, though! This was it. I mean it wasn't a Birthday cake, but damn it was better. And hopefully cheaper.

Boyfriend? Hu-? I finally tore my gaze from the food of the gods and had that internal conversation with myself that I always did when someone asked or mentioned a boyfriend kind of situation. Most of the time I didn't bother correcting strangers, especially when they were dudes. More often than not it prompted a lot of unwelcome questions. And I'd almost submitted to the idea that I wasn't going to find anyone in this town, that I'd be traveling to Seattle for any real hi-jinks I might want to get into. But then again, how do you know what'll happen unless you put yourself out there?

Oh, mmm, no, no, this is a girls only club, but this is just for a friend, anyway. We just like to live it up when we celebrate. Knee-jerk reaction, my eyes shot to Mindy who was plucking donuts off of a shelf with a pair of tongs. I wasn't sure if she'd even heard much less cared, but wasn't it a bakery that refused to make a cake for a gay couple? Or something like that? Mindy began closing the box and my gaze again became glued to the cheesecake. Get in my mouth, right now unf.

I was a little surprised when the woman said she was gay. I mean, I shouldn't have been. I was too, but still. I hadn't met any other gay chicks since college. Maybe I was to blame since I hadn't met much of anyway since coming to Index, but I'd been in to Seattle a number of times and I'd had a few conversations with random people there, and they'd all been straight as a ruler.

Boy or girl, candles just don't shout "just friends" to me. I said with a shrug. I didn't know if I was expected to tell her that I was a lesbian too. Like "Oh em gee, we both like girls!" To me it didn't seem like a big deal. Some people like girls. Some like boys.

I watched Mindy box up the donuts with impatience. She carefully set each donut in, but I was ready to just toss them all in and go. Or better yet, just eat them on the spot. I'd already been here for too damn long. I tried to distract myself, but there was no place in the bakery that wasn't with delicious-looking baked goods. Just because I came for the donuts didn't mean that I didn't want every other pastry in the place. The blue-haired woman looked like she'd zeroed in on a cheesecake that I had to admit looked pretty good. I wouldn't mind getting that for my birthday. I said, with a smile of appreciation for such a fine cake.
