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] Daydreaming a Nightmare

Vincent Sawyer Byrne | Wolf; Pack Master/Alpha

Posted on Sun Jul 10, 2016 7:03 pm

I woke, despite never having slept, from hours of staring so deeply at nothing and entangled so tightly in the thickness of my thoughts I might as well have been sleeping. Daydreaming a nightmare. A squared glass bottle accompanied me, the neck of it loosely resting between my blood stained jeans and dirt stained forearms. And a cigarette that had been sitting between my index and middle finger for so long from tip to filter stood nothing but a long column of ash. A visual pillar of tribute to the hellish weeks that had lead to my aching body carelessly slumped against the oak in my backyard. These were the members of my family now. The last of it, and far more loyal and enduring than any being with a pulse.

The sun was rising. The brightness of it was a cruel insult. The way it could rise and shine and illuminate as my heart and mind was repeatedly pulled deeper and deeper into the dark. “Fuck you.” A sharp whisper rushed out of my dry mouth and past my cracked and tense lips, and my brow, a stark contrast to the solidity of the lower half of my face, quivered with rage. My vision grew blurry, and the harder it became to see, the more fury I felt boil in my gut. But I refused to see, I refused to wipe my eyes. Maybe I was stubborn, and maybe it was childish to feel that wiping my eyes would be an admission of something I dare not even think. Or maybe I was just fucking tired of seeing. TIred of seeing death, and pain, and the cruel, cruel sun.

“Why did you bury him?” She asked. Her voice so fucking unwelcome it didn’t even rouse a chill or flinch. “Your kind will undoubtedly find you guilty of a crime that you didn’t commit now that he’s buried.’’ the corners of my mouth curled downward, a look on my face as if I smelled shit was the only response I was physically capable of conjuring as I sensed her move closer to the freshly filled grave. ''Don't you wish to contact the authorities? Surely revenge is a more authentic reaction for you. Not this... Well... Whatever this is. They could help you find her. The killer.'' It was then, right then when every muscle in my face relaxed. The tension gone until my eyes widened with stark realization.

I stood as quickly as I could, stumbling over the root of the tree as a frown pushed down over those stark realizing eyes of mine. Her? "Hmm?" She stepped back, and I immediately stepped forward to fill the gap between us she was so eager to create. You said her. Female. Oddly fucking specific if you ask me. "Of course. I thought you knew who the villain was in this story, Wolf." Our exchange ended there with a staring contest before she blinked out of existence. Her witchcraft not even raising a hair on the back of my neck as my mind scanned through the possible connections. Two names stood out, two women in particular. The only two that have ever bothered to kill those I chose to keep in my company. The only two that would...
