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] All good things must come to an end

Each place was better and better. I had thought the hot air balloon over Turkey took my already non-existent breath, but then came Salar de Uyuni, and I wondered if I'd found the very inspiration of Salvador Dali. Of course, I went to my home and had the typical experience of finding that nothing yet everything had changed. New Zealand, hell, even Utah had something to offer. I let Noelle go on her own after a while. Not because I didn't want her there, and not because she didn't want to be, but I felt that some of this was something we each needed to experience on our own. Most of the time I wasn't even able to speak. Bloodied tears fell down my face at each new location, as if I'd lost someone dear to me and they were now beckoning me in to the next world. I was absolutely sure that I wasn't going to come back. I didn't even have a care as to what would happen to the Ogma tower in Seattle. I was seeing the world really for the very first time. Pictures had done justice to nothing.

I even thought it might be time to reinvent, decide my new name and my new being. Let Lilith come back, I didn't care. I would just be some hiker with the luxury of going places where humans couldn't survive. And Noelle, of course I had gifted her the absolute best camera made - well, no, I couldn't decide between a few of them, so she had begun her trip with 5 cameras, none of which cost under 20 grand. There was no price I wouldn't pay to make her happy. But I had a feeling her appetite for things dark had not been sated enough to "retire" with me, to reach the crevices of the world that had yet to be reached by any intelligent creature.

I thought at least, I should tell someone if I wasn't coming back, designate a successor, which I'd already had someone chosen. Lilah, unless Noelle wanted it. Too bad for Benjamin - he had no idea the power he was leaving behind when he refused to join my ranks. He could have easily been number two or three. Behind only Noelle and Kyle. Maybe he was still human enough to want other things, either way - his loss. I knew he wasn't deal - Noelle would have known. But he'd gotten himself into something that involved his practical disappearance from the face of the earth. But if Noelle was fine, I didn't give him a second thought. So I returned to Prague, where I'd set up the closest thing to a Base from which I traveled. I left my bags, my things, for my assistant to unpack, and crashed onto the plush bed, lazily looking over to my phone. Dare I turn it on?

It was a mistake. I didn't make many, but it was a mistake. I threw the phone across the room as it continued to buzz non-stop until it broke. Go hIfreann leat!!! Couldn't they give me this peace without regret!? But all these years and I'd never been able to completely squash out the guilt in me. Feisigh do thoin fein, Lilith. I said, as I picked up the landline and quickly dialed numbers, trying halt myself from breaking the phone in the process.

Lilah, now!

_________________

A part of me wanted to let them drown in the mess that had been created. But there was a part of me who was angry with myself. I had been too invested in my "cure" of sorts to pay attention to the world around me, nor care. I didn't see the match being lit that was to set the world on fire. I was just so close, and so oblivious at the same time. We were way beyond the point of any simple kind of damage control. This was now a war, if what I was hearing was true. Had those foolish cunts really nearly wiped out the wolves? I didn't like wolves any better than the next Upir, but there was a very important reason I let them roam the pacific freely. I did believe in a balance between the species; that's why we were made the way we were to begin with. It was too late for Lilith to back out now, to change her mind about what she'd done and how she'd done it. We all had learned to work with whatever flaws we had, and in my case, to remove them without upsetting the balance. What kind of fucking God was she? And what kind of morons followed an unstable cunt like her? Ursula, that's who. She had thrived on this kind of unnecessary drama even if it meant her own harm. Always, and I had a feeling that night in the fire, there was more to it. She had won herself a place in that fire and scorned me when I couldn't rescue her. This time, if she was going to burn, I was going to be the one to start the fire.

"For the time being that's all I know, Gayle. We tried - "
The collars, Lilah, wasn't there something... I thought I remember something coming to my desk from R&D. Something about a missing schematic. Can you check into that? I suspect those lazy fooks couldn't even devise their own equipment and had to build on to ours.
"Gayle, calm down, go have a drink. You're not going to solve this in a day."
Lilah, the world is on fire. I'm not going to get the sun back just to have the world burn around me. I do need a few small favors, if you can delegate them to the appropriate staff. I broke my phone, so I need a new one sent to me right away, with all of my information. I have too many people to contact, too much to do. I also need you to find someone to keep an eye on the alpha... wait... fuck.. is he still around? Oh, right, right, of course he's still around. Still, I need eyes on him. No contact, I just need information. I'm going to rally up what I can here.
"For what?"
You'll see. Oh, and don't worry about Noelle. I'll contact her.

Edit:
Go hIfreann leat - To hell with you
Feisigh do thoin fein - Fuck your own ass
