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:
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.

Vincent Sawyer Byrne | Wolf; Pack Master/Alpha

Starts here...

The pack had contained everything I needed really. It was weird, the act of him giving it to me and granting me the opportunity to leave would be considered a kind gesture in any other situation, but I just felt manipulated. I could feel it in my bones that something was coming, and it wasn't the same feeling I had before, and it wasn't the same feeling I had during any of my... episodes with Lilith.

There had been a small plane waiting for me. A woman had stitched up the wounds that required stitching on the flight, while my broken bones healed because of the vampire blood they had force fed me, the gashes all over my torso, back, legs, and arms, the bigger ones anyway needed attention. I should have been wary when she offered me painkillers, but even if the vampire blood mostly healed my broken bones my body knew better. It still ached from them breaking. I still had no idea where I was or where it was taking me until it landed in a small town. East Wenatchee the sign said. The flight was long, and it was late when I had arrived, but even then I couldn't stop. A black van, just like the one I had seen picked me up and began taking me home. I was dropped off outside the very same barn I had been captured, it was late, and as much as I wanted to get home, I didn't at the same time.

I checked the pocket of my jeans for the flash drive, which oddly looked exactly like the ones I always wore. In fact... All of the clothes looked like mine, even down to the wear and tear of my leather jacket. My clothes had been destroyed when they... Did what they did to me, but these looked exactly like mine, as if they were...

Once I was certain the flash drive was in place I moved over to the barn and parked myself at the side of it. The entire thing hadn't been burned, which meant there was plenty of non scorched wood around, and I began gathering what I could to build a fire. The sky was clear, and I couldn't sense a storm. Maybe I wouldn't get much sleep, but that wasn't why I was settling down, that wasn't why I was building the fire...

I pulled off my jacket, then my shirt, and placed them onto the pack after pulling out a blade. It was a decent sized knife, three inches at it's widest point, and about seven inches long. It was almost like they knew what I was going to use it for... It was the perfect size... I twisted my body so my shoulder was in the light of the fire, so the symbol was in the light of the fire... One last look before I began heating the blade...

When I pressed it against my shoulder I could hear my flesh singing, I could smell it... I could see it. But I didn't cry out. My expression was flat. I felt the pain, but... Something inside of me was different. It hurt like hell, but didn't? At the same time it didn't. I didn't even have any time to really evaluate how fucked up that was before I heard foot steps ahead of me. I gripped the blade and held it out, not knowing what to expect but not willing to find out the fucking hard way either. Not after what I had just spent two weeks enduring, not after what I had just been through.

The man got closer, and when his face was illuminated by the fire I realized it was the wolf I had sentenced to rogue that night at One Shot. He looked horrified, ''Whoa...'' I dropped the blade and quickly reached for my shirt to put it back on. ''What... What the hell happened to you?'' He stammered and placed his hand over his mouth. I was in an accident. I lied, as I straightened out the fabric of my shirt. ''It looks like you went through a meat grinder...'' I forced the air out of my nose and reached for my jacket and pack. What is it? I knew he wanted to say something, and I didn't have time anymore to waste on small talk.

''I just... I want back in Onyx.'' I didn't even hesitate, I kicked some dirt over the small fire to put it out and just looked at him and started walking, and as I passed him, I spoke. Then you're back in. I could hear his feet rushing after me, ''Wait a minute? You're serious?!'' - I'm always serious. I kept pushing forward. ''What changed your mind?'' - I've been given a new perspective on things.

I could see the lights from Index ahead, and I threw my pack over my shoulder and stopped to look at the man behind me. Here is where we part ways. And I only have one thing to say to you... I took a step closer to him and put my hand on his shoulder. If you're back in, you're back in as my ally, as my brother, not my enemy. He looked almost afraid, like he had expected me to say something else, or do something else. And his expression became contagious as he stepped forward and wrapped his arms around me and patted his hands at my back.
