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.

Thread Details

Ogma Industries, Seattle | idk, cold? | Night


"It's not the breakthrough, but.. I would consider this a big deal, Gayle."
"Yes, yes, we absolutely cannot wait to show you. And I think this technology could be adapted in so many different ways."

It was about time. Not that my company had never made any progress at all, but it had been a while and something beneficial was overdue. It was no walk in the sun, but there was something inside me that had more hope than ever that it could be real. There were too many things coming together, too many pieces fitting in, now that I knew it wouldn't happen just the way I wanted it to. It was a sacrifice that made sense. It was one that really was a sacrifice to me, and I didn't like bending my own will, I didn't like bending my values, but other than family, that was the one thing I would bend for, even if only a little bit.

I made a mental note that eventually I might want the walls of some of these labs painted. White was clean, cold, and scientific, and that was okay, but even I myself couldn't stand to be down here for very long periods of time. The moment these white walls were no longer needed the whole lab would be destroyed. And no regrets. I was never reluctant to pat these people on the back, I didn't live millennia only to have no understanding of psychology. But still, there was only one breakthrough I cared about. I didn't care about the numbers of wolves anymore. Even my desire to be known for gifting my own race was beginning to diminish. I wanted a family; me, Noelle, Benjamin... and I wanted us away from our enemies, away from this dungeon of a lab, and together. In the sunlight, in the open. The ability to openly be what we were? If that happened, the icing on the cake, but not required.

Flynn and Lilah stood on either side of me, and in front of me was a very young vampire. Male, no older than 18 when turned. His freckles almost matched his kinky red hair, and he was entirely naked. he stood, taught and firm (except for the little guy) and I could tell he was struggling to remain calm. His front might have fooled the humans who worked here, but not myself and likely not Lilah or Flynn.  

"Who would like to do the honors?" The man in the labcoat, I'd long forgotten his name, asked, looking directly at me. I turned my head to Lilah and nodded. The man in the labcoat handed Lilah a dagger. God, how I wished the boy had a beating heart, even after all these years this kind of fear, that submissive fear, was still absolutely delicious.

"The blade is silver. You don't have to stab him, but touch it to his skin."

She did, happily, and while she didn't stab him as I'd somewhat hoped, she brushed it across his abdomen and you could smell and hear the burn. The boy cried out and my smile widened.

The scientist looked to the younger girl beside him in the labcoat, who had been holding a syringe. She stepped up to him, pulled at his arm and found his antecubital vein and promptly injected the liquid from the syringe. The boy gritted his teeth, fell to his knees and curled up in a ball. Hell, even if there had been no supposed breakthrough, I was enjoying the show. After a minute of us staring at this weak new creature, he reluctantly stood back up, bloody tears slowly creeping down his face. The scientist once again nodded to Lilah, who more than happily drug the blade across his abdomen. Nothing, apart from the boy's reactive cower. Not a singe, his skin was untouched. A cure for silver. Whooooopeee.
