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 stepped back, appreciating the music to an extent but feeling… worrisome. I’d avoided music of this type for so long, I wondered if I had been disconnected from that life and the memories of it long enough that it wouldn’t matter anymore. The feeling of it was excruciatingly familiar, and I felt like there was an answer I could easily find, but I knew I didn’t want to look. But the more she played, the more that feeling was pushing itself onto me. And the feeling that I’d lost something.. someone… just an overwhelming feeling of loss - began to make itself incredibly present in my mind.

Yes, now I’m afraid to know what he’s told you about me. Likely not much he hadn’t made apparent to me. When I knew him, I was hateful and boring. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen him, I explained while stepping away slightly from the girl with the violin. I didn’t want to feel like I was intruding on her performance, and I felt somewhat rude about talking through it, but… I was feeling so.. lonely? Was that the word? I felt like I’d had bottled up feelings and they wanted out.

I hope nothing has happened to him, really, I’d just kind of assumed he’d went to stay at one of the places where he’d traveled. I noticed that I was standing near a chair, and sitting didn’t feel like a bad idea, maybe I’d have a chat with this friend of Gabe’s, maybe we were meant to run into each other here? Perhaps he was just one of those people that had that aura or feeling to them that you’ve known them. I’m really sorry your friend is missing. I feel kind of lost myself. How terrible was it that I wanted to tell my own sad story (what of it I could) to this complete stranger when he had his own tragedy to worry about?

I played on, listening surreptitiously to their conversation. The music came easily to me, but the magic seemed to be faltering. Why wasn’t it working? Is something wrong with me? I felt okay. I looked around the cafe nervously. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary. The nice lady at the counter earlier was peeking out from the back room to watch me play. She had a strange look on her face. Maybe she didn’t like music in her cafe.

I took the violin off my shoulder and slumped my shoulders in frustration.

It was a little sad, seeing these two strangers connect over the disappearance of a mutual friend. I guess it had killed my mood.

I walked back over to my things on the couch and put my instrument away and slung my bag over my shoulder, leaning back against the arm of the couch, listening more obviously to their conversation.

Nothing bad. I smiled, at ease, the corners of my mouth drooping when she explained she hadn't seen Gabe for a 'long time' another dead end. I tried not to let the disappointment show, knowing it wasn't Claire's fault.

I took the chair opposite her and sat, taking her conversation as an invitation. I assumed the same myself, at first, so don't feel bad about it. He's a free spirit - hard to keep track of sometimes. Edith walked up with my tea and I smiled, taking my elbows from the table to give her room. Thanks. I said before she walked off, twisting the teacup round so the handle was in a a reachable position.

I'm sorry too, and I hope so as well, but... we'll see. I'm just hopeful some posters might get me somewhere. I don't know what it was that was keeping me there in the cafe. There was a strange sensation over me that was vaguely familiar and if Claire hadn't been so pretty I might have caught on, but she was a fair distraction. I smiled at her and reached out to touch her arm, a move that should have felt far too familiar and yet... just felt right? The scene had a strange lingering sadness to it. Hey, it can't be all that bad? And if it is, seems to me you're coping pretty well. On the surface, anyway. A girl as pretty as you shouldn't have to cope with feeling lost. I smiled, trying to inject some cheerful humor into the otherwise sad conversation. The violinist had stopped playing and I wondered if the music had been influencing our mood as we'd been listening to it. Music could be powerful with emotions, listen to a happy song, make you happy, a sad song, make you sad... even if the song hadn't sounded sad, exactly.   But if you want to talk about it, I'm all ears, and not just because you're pretty. If you endured Gabe as a roommate it makes us both part of a special, select number of humans. I offered with a grin, taking a sip of my tea. There was a movement to my side and I turned, watching the blonde sit against the couch almost as if she was listening. I raised my eyebrows, glanced back to Claire, and then shot the blonde a questioning look before shrugging it off.

Yeah, I definitely got that from him. He was gone more than he was around, I said as I weakly smiled up to Edith. As much as I knew I should be studying, I welcomed the distraction. I was feeling on the verge of a burnout, and I didn’t mean the tire kind. The track was one day a week. I wouldn’t mind it being more, I could make it more once I knew more about taking care of the car itself. It was still nice to meet someone else, although the subject matter worried me.


If you have some extra, I can take a few posters and place them around school and uh.. at the track where I race. Edith had left and the music had stopped, and that feeling was starting to fade out. That strange feeling of melancholy and a desire to lament the past that I’d been trying to forget. Did it come with the music? It had to have, I did slightly remember that I was a musician. I’d avoided it for a good reason, it would seem.


It’s not all the time, I explained, and I regretted even saying anything. I didn’t want to be mopey, that wasn’t who I was anymore and I didn’t want to head back down that road. No, honestly, I’m.. I’m really okay. I just felt.. off for a moment. Although I could feel my cheeks flushing slightly at the fact that he did call me pretty. Even if he probably was just trying to cheer me up.


I turned to look at the blonde girl who had been playing. Although the music might have had an effect on me, I felt bad if one or both of us had been the reason she stopped playing.

Um, I hope you didn’t stop playing because of us? You’re really talented, I said, turning to her so that hopefully she’d understand I meant it, I wasn’t just being nice. But I’m sure you get that a lot.

I fell back into my chair, smiling softly again at Rupert. He wasn’t all bad, but like I said, he wasn’t around much. But that leaves me to.. well… an awkward place and probably the wrong time to say it.. but I don’t suppose you need a roommate? I’d absolutely love for him to come back, but I could use a little help with rent. Or at least if you know anyone.
