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.

[Closed] Marisol's visit

Thread Details

Gayle's condo | Cool | Early night


I woke up this evening feeling down, a stark realization from the previous night hadn’t entirely left my mind. That meant that it had to be dealt with, and soon. But it wasn’t just as simple as calling Lilah, it wasn’t as simple as giving poor little Benjamin or Noelle a visit. This sombre realization called for a change in the focus of my life, my company, and everyone that worked for me. Only a few of them would be useful now, and well, at the risk of seeming cliche, I’ll admit that they knew too much. That was alright, they wouldn’t go to waste. There would be nights like tonight that I didn’t have it in me to chase down dinner. When I had more pressing things to do. On that note, I removed my phone from my nightstand and pulled Lilah’s contact up in the texting app.

Lilah, could you be a dear and fetch me something for dinner? I’m not picky tonight, just something clean.  Her speed always enamoured me, for a human; I barely had to wait for the reply.
Of course, Ms. Shaffer, I’ll be right up.

I wasn’t in too much of a hurry to get dressed, or to snap into action. The plan had to come first. I kept the phone in hand and walked barefoot to the living area, finally finding a comfortable spot on my sofa.

”You realize it now, don’t you? You know now that it won’t work.”

I looked around, pointlessly, I knew I wouldn’t be able to see her. But I still wanted her to see just how happy I was that she was here.

Marisol? Oh, how happy I am for you to be here.
”Really? Me? You’re not already asking about Sera?”
No, Marisol, I said, my body relaxing, my head leaning to the side. How could I keep her here? Why were these visits years apart and so short? I knew I had to enjoy what little time I would have with my old progeny. I know, I’ve always taken you for granted, but.. I’ve really missed you. This is one of the few things I know little about. Can’t you read that from me? Don’t you understand that?
It was true, and I was not bothering with a medium to find out exactly what was happening in these brief euphoric moments with the people of my past. Had it not been Noelle, I would have thought I was simply senile. I sensed Lilah, and her dinner. God, she was always quick, but now was a time when I had wished she wasn’t. Can you stay long? Please don’t leave me right now. I have to get this.
”I won’t. I’ll be right here.”
I quickly opened the door before Lilah had even arrived with my meal. The expression on her face - and I wasn’t sure why, but then I realized. Had she ever seen me in sleepwear? I hadn’t changed yet. ”Is everything… alright?”

Yes, yes, I said, and I skimmed over the meal. Oh, she was perfect. I could see her being a yoga teacher, someone who had definitely taken care of herself. Lilah, you’re absolutely the best. I grabbed the girl’s hand, excused Lilah, and ran back into my living room. I caught the girl’s eyes and spoke clearly. Go back to the bedroom and wait until I tell you otherwise. Down the hallway. She did as told, and I was back alone with Marisol, it was true. I could feel her and she hadn’t left me.

Thank you.
”Your tastes have changed, from when I was alive. I’m almost disappointed, Gayle. Are you not hunting for yourself?”
You know the answer to that. Sometimes, I do.
”Barely enough to remind yourself of what you are, but that’s not why I’m here.” She paused, ”It isn’t going to work, gayle.”
I’m aware, Marisol, oh, I’m quite aware. I don’t suppose you have a plan, do you?
”The Supremacy does, Gayle.”
Oh, don’t you start with that, Marisol. Don’t you dare. I’m not buckling, I’m not kissing their ass. I would rot away in cell just like Kyle.
And then, it wasn’t what I heard, it was what I felt. And then the pause.
”You don’t know, do you?”
Marisol, stop wasting both our time and tell me. What do you know about Kyle?
”Not much, but he hasn’t rotted away, that’s for sure. And when they bring Lilith into the picture, he’s going to be the first in line. The way it is now, you’ll not be a second thought. You need in on this, Gayle, they have so much that you need. Just tuck away that goddamn pride of yours and-”
Noelle - that’s why… but how does she know, Marisol? Oh, Noelle, just like Sera, isn’t she?
And with that, Marisol was gone. I looked around, as if she’d just be hiding somewhere, in some other ghostly form. One I could see, but no. That was it. I stared into nothing, with so much more information. My mind couldn’t make sense of it, not at least until I ate. I headed back toward the bedroom.
