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.

One of the many thoughts that had crossed my mind was that the dance we’d shared was just that - a dance. That the signals I had taken from Ásgeirr were things that I’d just read too far into. But here? Alone, me, him, and the rain? And here they were. If anything, I felt them even stronger. I want to know that you won’t run away from me. I spoke it softly, looking away, but leaning in to his hand, leaning into the touch of it. He felt so cold to me but it didn’t make me turn away. I wanted to make him warm again. I closed my eyes as his hand left, but now I let my head rest on his chest. You’re cold, Ásgeirr, why are you so cold?

I think I knew the answer to that question, and it might have had something to do with the worried expression I had seen on Hugo as he’d left. Sorry… I reluctantly stepped back and almost thought to return to the chair. Or to finally go to bed. I wasn’t sure what I would do if those signals were not as I was interpreting. I didn’t think I could stand to be rejected by him another time.

Will you push me away again? I want to know if you are afraid of hurting me or if my feelings are just not mutual. I’d let it out, I’d admitted the feelings were there, and now it wasn’t just my heart that was speeding up. My breathing was shallow but fast. I swallowed hard, and wanted to curl up against him again, feel him again. You won’t hurt me, I began to plead. I want… I took a deep breath, I want to keep you warm.

All words had left me and for a moment I stood, just watching her in silence as she spoke. When she placed her head against my chest I didn't move. Quote BeginI won't. I...Quote End I was cold. I had not realized that I was, but it made sense. Right now I looked like the monsters that society had created for themselves. The cold, pale, dark haired stranger that seemed to look unhealthy yet glow at the same time. I hadn't fed in a long time and it was showing.

She asked me a very easy question. One I could answer in my head but still proved hard to leave the comfort of my lips. Quote BeginI am afraid to lose you, Gwyneth.Quote End I finally, reluctantly spoke. Quote BeginIn whatever way. Whether I hurt you, or you run because you're afraid...Quote End I looked away, unsure of what to say exactly. Quote BeginThat night... I didn't want to take the risk of you running. So I did instead.Quote End

When she was done speaking, I stepped towards her, my hands running through her hair on the back of her head as I pressed her softly buy firmly against me. And then I closed my eyes, allowing the fatigue to set in, my eyelids feeling heavy. Quote BeginPlease do.Quote End

There was a question in my mind that I just.. couldn’t put into words, and I wasn’t sure of the answer. But it was still in my mind. Just.. how? How us? How some girl like me who had faded into some weird oblivion after rebelling against her parents, had gotten involved with this.. dark yet heroic figure. This man, and yes, he to me was very much so still a man, not a monster in the least, who could probably take whatever and whoever he wanted, wanted me. We honestly hadn’t had long conversations hours on the phone like young relationships, but that didn’t lessen it at all for me. Maybe my memory was clouded, but even from that first conversation with him I felt some kind of excitement when I was near him. I felt intrigued, and I knew that there was something different with him.


It’s too late for me, I smiled, my brows a little raised, I can’t run away. I’m hooked. Wasn’t really a joke, but I hoped that I was easing the tone, a bit. My anxiety had faded, and now I was feeling a peaceful relief. A happiness I really couldn’t remember; even when I’d been under the assumption that Eli was happy with me, it had never felt as concrete as this.

I rested myself against him, his pull exciting me at least a little, I couldn’t look at him or feel him without my mind going to certain places, but at the same time I was so.. comfortable, I was so at rest where I was, and I wasn’t ready to move. I wasn’t ready to break this connection even with so much as a kiss. My hand rested on his chest just beside my head. Thank you. and I left the rest unspoken, because there were too many things to be specific about. He saved me, but also he made me feel like I was “a catch” for lack of a better way to say it. After Eli, I’d felt so often like simply a door prize. Like.. just “good enough,” if even that.

Finally I broke our connection and stepped back, unable to fight the yawn that came next. It didn’t matter how much coffee I’d had, late was late. Sorry, I grinned, It’s so late, but.. Will you come with me? Be with me until I sleep?

A certain calmness came over me. I closed my eyes, still holding her in my embrace. It was as if the warmth was flooding back to me, even if that wasn't the case. I needed to feed, but that could wait a little longer. Never had I guessed the outcome of this conversation. There was still fear, but no longer the fear that she would leave.

When she stepped back I smiled at her. She was tired. It was obvious that this way of life took a while to get used to. Being awake when the sun was down and sleeping when it stood high in the sky was a most unnatural lifestyle for most humans. No need to apologize, Gwyneth. I spoke, my hand touching her cheek softly before pulling back. I could hardly decline, could I? A smile appeared on my lips and I took her hand. If you feel the need to stay awake longer during the night, feel free to speak to Hugo or Julia. They have some great tips, I'm sure. I let out a small laugh before continuing. I'm afraid I can't help you with those matters.

As we walked through the main hall and up the stairs, I could hear Hugo cleaning up the room we just left. The man never disappointed. I bet he thought himself mighty accomplished, having pushed Gwyneth and I towards each other all this time. The man didn't speak much, but somehow always seemed to channel a kind of wisdom. I always wondered where he got it. He never spoke much of his own history.

I entered the guest bedroom, walking over the windows to close the curtains. Not a ray of moonlight entered the room. The rain had slowed to a drizzle. I drew back the covers of the grand king size bed and waited for her to get in, before I got in myself. I hope you sleep well, Gwyneth. Hugo or Julia will make sure there's breakfast tomorrow morning.

Even though it was difficult to keep my eyes open, I didn't want to sleep. I wanted to embrace this moment when for the first time in ages I don't feel alone. Maybe the first time when I felt... Not spoiled, but cared for. I rolled onto my side so that I was facing him, smiling softly and fighting to keep my eyes open. This bed didn't help. The size alone was tremendous and the mattress was the most comfortable I'd ever slept in. I had been sleeping in it for a bit now and it still felt like clouds every time I climbed in.

There's no need to put them out, I said, but secretly I knew they would have it for me no matter how much protest, and I couldn't complain.  It always made me feel terrible that Ásgeirr couldn't enjoy it with me, and as mysterious and exciting as his condition was in my mind, I wished that I could heal him. I wished we could enjoy so much more with him. 

Would you take a cure? If there was one?
