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.

Pay it forward? Well, I guess I could. I mean, I'd had opportunities and was usually pretty good at lending more than I had. At least I liked to think so. To be fair, I wasn't expecting her to ask for something back. Ugh... Still didn't make me think I didn't owe every damn person who did something. Being broke and homeless fuckin' sucked. I needed back on my feet and fast, couldn't be relying on meeting people like Donna everywhere I went. All thoughts immediately pushed to the side when the bartender grudgingly replaced my meal. Holy shit. This shit looked good. I wondered briefly about the cost. Couldn't be cheap, this thing looked good. Weren't salads supposed to be for like weight watchers and shit?

Dumping a healthy glob of sour cream and mashing it into my chili and lettuce bliss I perked up a bit at Donna's admission. So... You cheated on him? really wasn't that hard to admit, I mean, who the hell would I be judging. I mean, I had given 'Rik the money to cheat on his lady, then tried to bone his wife at the bar. I was no bloody saint, but hey! I was human. There were needs and shit I needed to fill. I put my hand up in a small defense. Don't need to beat around the bush with me. What? you afraid the homeless divorcee is gonna judge ya'? I joked. You're not talking to no Saint. I did my share of side work with some girls...guys too I suppose. Not that I had pulled that shit with Adrianna but I wasn't about to kid myself. The cheating meant something to those girls married or not, and I'm sure that Acacia, Scarlett and Romy wouldn't had been to pleased to find out I had been multi-dating if I ever ran into them again. Players gonna play though. Hate the game and all that shit, right?

I shrugged absently at her comment. It wasn't all bad, ya'know. Didn't have to pay for a wedding and it's not like we had kids. Even talked as friends for a while after. I'm not one to cut people off or hold a grudge. I took my first heavenly bite of taco -topia and hummed in satisfaction. This shit was as good as it looked and smelt. Or maybe that was my hunger setting in, either way, Thank you, Donna! I've been loving the single life too, I hear ya'. No more cocktail lounges and shitty brunches with the in laws. Besides the move down here has been something new all together. Totally different world down here in Washington!

Yeah, not like I’m proud of it. I was feeling a little less hungry now that my mind was going there, but that didn’t stop me from continuing to eat. I just started picking instead of eating like a ravenous monster. And then he finished his thought and my brain went somewhere weird at first. I guess he was just using a phrase? But my mind went to actual work. Like.. prostitution or porn. Damn, I mean, was the dude that skeezy? You don’t mean actual work though, right?


At this point I was more focused on my drink than my food. But it was actually halfway gone, and this next drink just about finished it. Eh, fuck it, I’ma have some fun, I thought. That’s what I did right? Wasn’t like me to just feel.. down. So wait… wait. Side work? I nudged him so he’d know I was kidding. So it was work, huh? Just what kind of work did you do? I grinned.

And the rest of his story reminded me a little more of my own. Before I left Oregon, Robert and I were pretty much on friendly terms. I felt like his attraction for me had faded too, he had almost seemed relieved, even if the whole thing was a bit jarring.

Sounds like your life really uh… Well, there wasn’t really a nice was to put it now was there? Went in the shitter? I made a scrunched face, hoping he’d read the apologetic nature of it, but then again, he wasn’t a damn mind reader. Only go up from here? and I raised my glass for a toast.
