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.

Her question troubled me. I had hundreds of years to think about the answer, because of course I thought about it before. But somehow I still didn't know what I would do. Being a vampire came with a lot of negatives. I hadn't seen the sun ever since that night. I could hardly enjoy food anymore, I was forced to drink blood to survive... I... No sound left my lips as I pondered the answer. Being what I was also had it's perks. Unlike many, I had the chance to live history. To know what happened before... to see the evolution and the progress of the world with my own eyes. It was marvelous.

Being a vampire granted me so many things I would never have done or seen if I had stayed in that village so many ages ago. I would have been a simple man, and died a simple man. The thought of it, however, seemed appealing. Besides the beautiful things, I had also seen things I wish no one would ever have to see again. Maybe I would have had more children, lived a happy life. But history aside, what would I do now? I honestly do not know Gwyneth. I stroked her cheek with my fingers, before burying them in her hair. I can hardly remember what it's like to have a heartbeat. How would being human feel? Being vulnerable... weak even. It frightened me yet I also felt a spark of excitement. Would life be less dull? Life has been... lonely, I guess. So there has never really been a reason to think about taking a cure, if there even was one. I had always been surrounded by other vampires. The only humans I had contact with were my staff and a business contact every now and then. Would finding family change me?

Maybe now, I will start thinking about it some more... I smiled at her.

Maybe going to the bed was a bad idea, not because I was tempted, no, I was too tired for that sort of thing now. But because this moment was so very surreal to me. I closed my eyes at his touch, and once his fingers moved to my hair I could feel my scalp tingle. I feared that I would fall asleep, and wake up and realize that this whole entire night had only been a dream. It was beginning to feel that way, I mean, I couldn’t remember the last time when I had felt so… adored. And I stared at the face across from mine, and tried to wake myself up - not physically, but metaphorically. I tried so hard to see a monster but I just could not.

But that doesn’t mean you don’t still have a heart in there, I said, a sleepy grin forming on my lips. But it wasn’t long before the happiness came with a pang of guilt. Maybe it had been best to leave that idea in some dark corner of his mind, where it wouldn’t come out to tease him if it was something he couldn’t have if he did want it.

I frowned in thought, not necessarily a negative emotion or anything… I was just thinking. Would I want him to take it? Not that I would let that be a factor if it ever came to be an issue, but… I needed an opinion, right? I didn’t know enough about what this was to him. He seemed haunted, lonely, yes, but I didn’t think it would take making him human again to change that. Whatever human niceties he’d had, surely had been long enough ago that he might not remember enough about them to miss them, right? I mean, aside from loved ones. I can’t imagine loved ones really ever actually leaving your heart. That was always the real curse of immortality, right? Finally, I returned the smile.

I wouldn’t mind this being a regular thing, you know? I said, the second half of my words climbing up the yawn that escaped. I covered my mouth and finished the yawn before continuing. Sorry, I grinned, I mean, I wouldn’t mind falling asleep with you here.

What use was having a heart when it did not beat? Maybe she saw more in me that I did myself. I guess you're right... I muttered. She seemed so tired yet refused to go to sleep. I wondered why. Keeping my hours had to be tough on her. I wouldn't mind either. I spoke, agreeing with her. I didn't want to spoil the fun and mention that I probably wouldn't sleep. I had to sneak out of bed at one point. I would never want to force my lifestyle onto her. She could sleep whenever she wanted to.

I wrapped my arm around her, hoping she wouldn't feel too cold in my embrace. Go to sleep dear, you're tired. We will talk tomorrow.
