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.

Wrestling her for this drawing had been both annoying and oddly... Well... I didn't have a word for it. The only way I could describe it was, annoying and the opposite of annoying all at the same time. But I hated my own desperation to see what had been drawn. I hated that I needed to see it. I didn't expect it to be what it was. I didn't see it coming, and my own stubbornness had lead to what felt like a really fucking awkward situation for both of us. It was fucking stupid. Why couldn't I have just let it be?

I don't think it is, it just is. I spoke as I walked past her, avoiding eye contact and heading straight for my drink. I picked it up and plopped back down on the couch feeling weird about it all. Fuck it was just a drawing but it was a powerful fucking drawing. It made me feel every fucking shade of uncomfortable. But not? At the same time not. It was too fucking natural. It didn't even make sense to me, how a drawing could feel natural but fuck I didn't even know what I was thinking anymore.

I didn't want it to happen, so badly I didn't want it to happen that I was already glaring when it did start happening. The corners of my mouth were being pulled, a fucking smile and a glare at the same goddamned time and I probably looked fucking mental. I tried to shake the smile first by taking a drink but it wouldn't go away so I had no fucking choice but to lose the tension in my eyebrows. And it was just feeling awkward in my fucking house, so I needed to say something to fill the space between us.

I uh... good... look, no. I immediately started glaring again at how fucking nonsensical that sounded. I mean... I brought my hand up to rub my jaw quickly before reaching for my guitar to change the subject. You wanna learn? I can teach you a chord or some shit.

The whole compliment thing had still kinda left me reeling. Not because I didn't think he'd ever give 'em or anything like that, more because what he'd given it to - I hadn't expected it. I looked back down at the drawing, straightening it out a bit more even though nothing was getting rid of some of the crinkles, or the rip. Now I felt even more like a fucking idiot for how I'd acted. I should've just showed it to him and none of any of the crap on the ground would've happened. Which would've been a better scenario, right? It pissed me off that I couldn't even give myself a straight answer on that.

I ducked my head as he passed, still trying to figure out how I felt about... well what he'd said. It wasn't like I drew for approval but... shit, I felt proud after what he'd said, I couldn't even deny it. I bit down on my lower lip, eyes following him as he went back to the couch and sat. Didn't realize you were such an expert, giving such firm reviews. There was this feeling in my chest because of this whole damn situation and it didn't just feel like solely pride anymore. But it sure as hell didn't get rid of the awkwardness I felt about being caught drawing it. Because sketches like that were... hell, kinda personal. I didn't know how to explain it but I knew how I'd felt drawing it and how I had seen him as I was, and there definitely hadn't been anything fucking impersonal about it.

With that thought I walk back over to the coffee table, crouching beside it and placing the page back down on it. I figured I was looking for something to do with my hands all over again but for different reasons. I straightened the rest of the paper quickly and when I had nothing else to do my gaze moved back to him. And he was... smiling? Almost immediately is was like that stupid pride and something else feeling got even more noticeable and I was an idiot for even being so aware of it. One side of my mouth even started to tug upwards at the sight of it which was just even more idiotic.

I tried to clamp it down but then he spoke and it was harder not to smile or smirk at the jumbled up way his words came out. I arched a brow as looked up at him, waiting for him to correct himself or continue or something. Or say more totally unexpected things, whatever. Seriously? My eyes widened for a second and then curiosity won out and I was straightening up with a grin and moving to sit back on the couch. Yeah that'd be... well, really cool. I looked down at the guitar, nervous but kinda not at the same time. Worst that happens is it turns out I've no fucking natural rhythm, right?

I'm totally fine with wingin' it with this thread since at this point we've done everything we set out to do and now we're just kinda, goin' through the motions which is def great, but I just wanted to say we should probably figure out where we stand? Like, do we want to keep it going or end this because you're starting school soon, maybe free up a post slot for something between them in the future? Let me know if you think we should let this whole thing fade to black [in a non-smut way of course lol] or whatever. <3


I'm not, but I'm not a liar either. I paused, thinking over that statement and how many secrets I'd been keeping from everyone, including one really big one from her that had been latched onto my back since I first saw her at the theater. Some would say, that was the same as lying. I wasn't sure if I agreed or not, but maybe that was because I was the guilty party if it was the same as lying. I mean, it's dumb, I don't like getting my picture taken and this is kinda the same... Except it requires more stare time so if anything it's worse. It's good, but that doesn't mean I like it. That was it, I had just nailed it on the head. It was good, yeah, but the truth was I didn't like it. I didn't like that it was me at all. I was about to backtrack on what I'd just said because there was a chance it came out sounding more brutal than I intended, but if I backtracked, then that'd make me a liar, and that was something I really didn't wanna backtrack on.

Luckily, it wasn't affecting me as much as it would have if I didn't have my guitar in my hands. Having something to fiddle with and focus on made it a fuck load easier to just say what I wanted to say without dwelling over imaginary and possibly real consequences. You've definitely got rhythm. I muttered, and yes, it sounded fucking sexual because that was exactly how I'd meant it.

I passed her the guitar in a way that positioned it in her lap. She didn't need my help with this part, there was no technical way to hold it, as much as people wanted to say otherwise. It was all about what was most comfortable. Relaxed wrists. I said quietly because my mouth was only inches away from her ear, which was thanks to my hand reaching around her to place her fingers over the strings at the neck. You want to apply comfortable pressure between the frets like... I placed my fingers over hers to position her index, ring, and middle in place for an easy C. This is C... One small adjustment to her placement, D minor... Another small adjustment, ...And E minor... I moved her fingers back over the chords two or three times before finally moving my other hand over hers to strum, Down with the back of your nails, and up with the back of your thumb. I showed her before then moving her strumming hand gently over the strings, just as I had mine. C, D minor, and E minor. C, D minor, and E minor., You feel that? I asked, wondering if she felt the melody as I had.
