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] Alone again, naturally

Time is around 10:00am on Monday, 22 February 2016.



Well, wasn't this a rude awakening?

I stood at the front door of my apartment, staring at my furniture, still covered in their dust sheets, the air reeking of melancholy. I stared briefly at the dust notes, lit up by the brief Pacific Northwestern sun. Everything that I had worked for in the past year had crashed down around me spectacularly and I was now at square one again. Whoop de-fucking-do.

Last time I was here, I'd been escaping the lunatic attentions of Deidrich, desperate to just leave everything behind. Now? Now I wasn't sure, but Index had appeared to become a place I ran to, without even knowing why. 

It was all so laughable. I had it going so well, new job, new boy, new friends, a whole new life. I had picked myself up from the wreckage of London and finally found a new identity. Now I had none of that. 

I'd thrown myself into work, lost sight of what should have been important. The boy and the friends, all driven away by me being too busy to care. He had probably moved on by now, they had probably moved on by now. There was only so much of being "too busy" people would tolerate. And I had been so very busy. I laughed quietly, bitterly. 

Well. That wasn't strictly true. 

I'd been busy, yes, but I had also... Attracted attention. Attention from the very man I had been so determined to hide from. 

Images and sensations arose within me, unbidden and unwanted. I fought the bile that rose in my throat. I didn't need to remember what it felt to find the first of his "presents" again. How it felt like my nightmares had begun again, only this time they had been far far worse. 

If it hadn't been for Izzy walking past my dressing room at that very moment, God knew what would have happened...

I shook myself. But she did. And now he was nothing but an unfortunate series of events that occurred. He was locked up and I was safe. I didn't have to remember how it felt to have a box cutter held up against my throat, or how paralysed I had felt when they found rope and ether in his bag. No, Deidrich was no longer a problem. I didn't have to worry about what his plans for me had been. How he had managed to catch me unawares, because I had been careless and carefree and happy. 

And yet here I was. 

Amy Lear, still a fucking failure. 

And what for? The stupidest of things. One little screw up, one little injury. And they kicked me out. Just like that. Like I hadn't sold my soul to work for the company. Sacrificed my personal life, everything, just to dance. 

"I'm afraid we have to ask you to leave Amy, you need help. Come back when you've... recovered." 

I shook two small white pills into my hand and swallowed them, chasing it with a sip of water from my bottle. I need help, ha. Isn't that the point of fucking painkillers? To help with the sodding pain? I scowled, flicking the dust sheet off my couch. 

Hello again, Index. I half-snarled as I flopped onto the couch. I didn't want to think about any of it anymore. I wanted to just fade away or scream from the rage of it. I just didn't know which option I preferred. Finally, the pills took effect. I threw an arm over my eyes, and let the pleasant sensations wash over me, letting me forget the misery that had brought me back here.
