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.

I'm not... I struggled to find the words. In fact, it was my inability to really articulate anything the way I wanted that made it so difficult for me to want to go out. It was just so much easier to meet and connect with people on the internet when I had time to think out what I wanted to say and say it. I wasn't trying to make Donna feel bad, I wasn't annoyed by her. I just had a different point of view that I was struggling to communicate to her. I'm not offended. I'm not trying to hide myself from you. It's just that I don't particularly like to talk about myself to people I don't know.

The difference between Donna and most of the people I met on the street was that Donna interested me. She was a unique person who thought differently from me but didn't look down on me for it. She struggled to understand my feelings, sure, but it wasn't like I completely understood what it was like to be an extrovert either. Maybe it was the way we met, or the fact that she was hot, but something had set her apart in my mind and had made it worth giving getting to know her a try. And maybe it was failing, maybe I wouldn't be able to say what I was trying to say or she would decide that I was too lame to hang out with her, but it wouldn't be for lack of trying.

Woah, that's you? I didn't even think of Queen Lily being voiced by a woman, but that's hilarious. I said. Dawn Speed was an example of a cartoon that seemed silly on the surface but was actually pretty clever. I also found the characters hilarious but surprisingly complex.

Alright, so, I think my best option for now was to just move past the shit that had turned this south. Her clarification helped, but I knew now to dodge the subject and see what we could build from what we actually had in common, and now, I had my ticket.

How effing exciting was it that she was a fan of Dawn Speed? This was great, and honestly, even though, it’s not like I was a celebrity, in a way, I felt like one. To find a (kind of) random person, and find out that they even knew of Dawn Speed? And it was definitely true - she wasn’t full of shit because she knew that Queen Lily was actually a dude. My eyes lit up and I was grinning from ear to ear. Yes, I paused and readied myself because Queen Lily was actually one of the more difficult voices I did. I sucked a deep breath in through my nose, cleared my throat, and spoke in his voice. Gingerbot get your damn pants on we’re going on an adventure. I shook my head. I stood up, thinking it wasn’t my best but wasn’t my worst, and most of it had to do with the fluid situation. I was thirsty as fuck. I scooted my chair under the table, knowing I was unable to eat any more of my cookie.

Dude, we need beverages. Starbucks, soda? Maybe uh.. I mean.. I shrugged, Maybe one of the restaurants for something with some alcohol in it? I folded some napkins over my cookie, shit I was saving that gem for later.

I grinned back at her. It was actually pretty cool that she was the main voice of such a popular show. I never would have thought I would be going out on a date with the voice of Queen Lily and Gingerbot. Not that I was some weird-ass fan girl but I did keep up with the show. I sat in anticipation as she prepared to give a rendition of Queen Lily, and it was no lie. She really was the voice behind Dawn Speed's two main characters. That was great - I mean, this is actually really cool.

I balled up my napkin and stood up, following suit and pushing in my chair. I considered her offer to get something alcoholic, but at that point I didn't really want to go sit in a restaurant and have drinks. I was ready to get up and stroll about with a hot drink in hand. Coffee sounds good I said, thinking that I needed something bitter to counteract the sugary sweetness of the cookie. I would probably end up putting a ton of sugar in anyway, but not until I had taken at least one sip of the stuff while it was black and that was what really mattered.

Now that had my confidence returning. This was more like it, but... I still didn't think it was enough for us to have a connection. MaybeI was going about this all wrong. As much as you would think a place like this would be a middle ground, maybe it wasn't. My home away from home was loud, with flashing lights and lots of people. Lots of movement and things happening. It's nothing to write home about. I think people have more talent in their bones and they just have no clue. 

Oh, yeah, coffee... you know that sounds uh.. perfect. My only problem with it, my kind of coffee usually involved almost as much sugar and chocolate as was in the cookie I'd just eaten, but actually, the idea of trying something new. Tea? Maybe? Something fruity, yes. I started walking in the direction of the Starbucks, making sure she was following. 

So, this isn't really your scene, is it? I walked slowly, my steps lazy and long, and the first store we passed by was a Bath & Body Works. I loved the stuff in there, but I just couldn't actually hack going in there. Everyone spraying shit, not giving a fuck who it gave a headache to. Then it kind of made sense, maybe the way I saw people in this store was basically how she saw people all the time. Maybe, I needed to start at her grounds, and we'd work our way up, right? So, you know, after this, maybe we could go somewhere else? Somewhere a little more comfortable for... us?

I agree that people are talented in their own ways, but that doesn't make yours any less cool. I said. I wasn't necessarily the most easily impressed person, but Donna impressed me. I'd had my doubts about our compatibility, and still did, but I knew that she as a person impressed me. She was smart, attractive and she was the voice actor behind an incredibly clever cartoon.

I wasn't sure Donna was entirely convinced with my choice, maybe she was really looking forward to getting some drinks, I don't know, but I just rolled with it, Great, and followed her towards where I could see the sign for the Starbucks a bit down the way. The sugary aftertaste that was still on my tongue was making me really crave the bitter coffee flavor I was imagining. That was another thing that I'd liked about Donna - she also seemed to love food, especially the kind that was loaded with sugar and unhealthy goodness - we did meet in a bakery after all.

I dunno, I just don't really like shopping that much, so I guess not. I said, matching her pace and gazing about at the various stores. Honestly, that sounds great I said, smiling at her. One thing that I will say is that I am not generally good at showing my emotions which does make it harder to connect with people, and that one's all on me. I was trying to make an effort with Donna to show that I wasn't the emotionless misanthrope she probably thought that I was.
