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 stared mournfully at the layer of dirt that marred the side of my Charger. The trip to Colorado had been difficult for both of us, it seemed. It was a two day trip just to get there. Sparky could be ornery at times, but he had held out for the entirety of the long drive.

It was a long ten months that I had been in Aspen. My father and I hadn't spoken for years when I returned to take care of him. He always got on well with Landon, but, somehow, the responsibility of his care fell to me. It was strange to see someone who I had feared look so weak. Taken down, in the end, by cirrhosis of the liver. He died a bitter old man, and the sad part was that I could see myself in him.

Being away from Index for so long was surprisingly difficult. I had come to miss the pack and all their rowdiness. It had been many moons since I had run with them as a wolf, although I had been sure to spend as much time as possible in my wolf form. If what I'd heard was true, the Index pack was currently missing, possibly... no, probably dead. Tears pricked at my eyes and dripped onto my cheeks, cooled by the chilly evening air.
I was eager to see my brother again, even if he had left my alone with Marcus. He didn't even come to the funeral.

I shouldered the duffel full of dirty clothes and slammed the trunk of my car, palming my keys. I'd only made it to the laundromat in Aspen a handful of times, and I curled my lip at the scent that wafted into my nose. Landon's car was in the drive, suggesting that he was home although I didn't catch his scent as I thought I would.

I walked to the door, casting a quick glance down the block before I tried the handle. I'd sent Landon a handful of unanswered texts regarding my return and was hopeful that he had left the door unlocked for me, but no such luck. I set to work unlocking the door, and at last it swung open and I crossed the threshold. The house was totally dark and silent, and, even more disconcerting, Landon's scent was stale, possibly months old.

It all started to come together. The unanswered texts, the fact that his car was in the driveway but the house was empty: Landon was missing.

I dropped my duffel and sank to my knees, and then leaned forward so that my face was pressed to the floor and the tears dripped freely onto the hardwood. He was so proud of this house. He had saved up enough to purchase it in cash. It was probably the only reason it hadn't been foreclosed on, if he wasn't here to make payments. I would bet our utilities and internet service had been shut off, since he took care of those things and didn't have it set up to pay automatically in case we didn't have the money.

With the pack missing, I had no one. I'd heard rumors that the Index alpha was still around, but going to him in this moment of weakness seemed like idiocy. He had never seemed the sympathetic type, and he wouldn't care about my human brother anyway. He might understand my distress over the missing pack, but I'd never seen him hold them in anything but contempt.

Fuck the Supremacy. Fuck them to hell.
