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.

Pleasure to Meet you Kai. I nodded as I took back my hand.

Warlock Alt? I asked confused. I raised my eyebrows and glanced over to Kai and then back to Michelle, who was beet red. It was pretty adorable how excitable she was. She seemed like the type of girl that would be a blast at parties, but then find you later at 3 a.m. and 'real-talk' the meaning of life with you. I don't understand, is that like, Dungeons and Dragons?

It had been awhile since I've even played or talked to anyone that played Dungeons and Dragons, do people in this day and age still do that? It had been a good couple decades since I had to room with a group of Dungeons and Dragons players. After living with them, I decided big city rent wasn't really worth the extra money or bodies, unless I could really, really afford it.

I wasn't aware there was such a class. Are we talking about the same thing?

The two seemed very close and intimate, could I have been reading their situation completely wrong? I always assumed close friendships or lovers would be open about their supernatural states when the relationship was at a certain point. They must not be as close as I thought. Interesting.

I am very sorry, but I assumed you two were very close. I didn't mean to complicate things. I said shaking my head. I breathed in and out a heavy sigh, and covered my face in my hands.

I think if all that had come of it was Michelles inner nerd making its presence known in a completely adorable fashion. Then maybe I could have talked myself out of this. The fact I wasn’t the one telling her wasn’t really the problem here, it was the fact it was all so casual. Just everyday chit chat. The conversation moved into bloody Dungeons and Dragons which made me groan internally. Being compared with video and tabletop games how very serious. If Michelle was going to be a part of this world liked she seemed to want, I was going to at least make sure she understood what she was getting herself in for. That was part of the reason why I had invited her here. This party had a wide cross section of Vampire present. Michelle was a human without a Vampire escort. My confidence was riding on a number of my customers being present but we were still lambs in a lion’s den. I’d never told a human woman what I was before, unless they had met me primarily as a customer. Michelle needed to understand that this was dangerous territory for her and that spending time with me, well those things went hand and hand. Having what I was treated like just another selectable class in a roleplaying game didn’t reflect the gravity of how different I was from her.
 
“As hot as you are all embarrassed about a game that I may have played a Forsaken Mage in, this is not the way I wanted you to find out what I am.” I shook my head at Michelle with a warm smile on my face. There was something about her. I didn’t know what it was. I knew I was going to tell her, I actually wanted to. I wanted her to be properly prepared for how her life might change if she continued to see me. Turning my gaze to Blake I locked eyes with her. “My life is not a safe one for a human, and I’d imagine yours is the same.” Even if I considered myself no threat to Michelle I knew others of every species which that was not the case. Even the Greenmantle coven had historically, sacrificed humans for ritual purposes. Vampires and Wolves preyed on humans. Necromancers could ruin their lives. “Considering letting someone in that could get hurt is a pretty big deal to me.” If Michelle wanted to have the occult fully revealed to her then I suspected she would find out one way or another. I wanted to be her escort, so she fully understood how dangerous it was but was….safe.
 

“Remove the memory of this whole conversation and I will owe you a favor. My coven is one of the oldest in the world. I specialize in enchantments, charms and procure magical objects which I sell and trade. Just give me back the ability to tell Michelle myself.” She deserved that much respect. The concept dawned on me when I said the words. I did really want to tell her myself. It was my secret to tell. I was willing to go far enough as to get myself in debt to a Vampire in order to introduce her to the person I hid. I just needed some more time with her. To try to find out why she invaded my thoughts often. This was a dirty tactic, I knew that. Manipulating Michelle’s thoughts. But it was for good intentions, did that make it alright?

Wo-World of Warcraft. I’m sure it’s beginnings were inspired by D&D. And here was where I always had a little inner battle with myself. The dichotomy of the “two sides of Tumblr”. Honestly, I knew the answer before I even argued with myself, but the struggle was still there. As superficial as it was, it was the struggle between my nerdiness and my aesthetic. I’d rather be an ugly, deep nerd than a hot but shallow bitch any day. But truly, I wanted to be both. I just didn’t have the second half in me.

Horde, I grinned, I wouldn’t have guessed. My excitement was too much for me to try to be cool at this point. The battle was already lost, and maybe the absinthe was loosening my lips anyway. But then I realized World of Warcraft was far from the topic. I mean, it was apparent he’d just been outed as.. something. But I already knew. I don’t know why it was such a serious thing to put a name to it.

Does the name matter? I mean it’s pretty clear you’re not.. Normal? Well shit, duh. It’s clear you’re something. I’ve met wolves, I’ve met vampires, there aren’t many more leaps left to make, Kai. My eyes did flick to the redhead, quickly attempting to judge her expression. I was embarrassed. What the hell was wrong with me? I was in a room filled with vampires, and at least one.. Warlock. And was I scared? No, I was pissed that I wasn’t part of the group. I was a pet, which would have been fine if it had been on my own terms. If I decided I wanted to be a pet. I started to quickly finish the drink in front of me when what Kai asked of the redhead had me almost spitting it out. But I needed it too much.

Seriously?!

I understand, but I said as I nodded to Kai, are you sure? His offer was too good to just turn down, but I felt guilty about wiping her memory for my own personal gain with no second thought. To stay alive, it is true you do have to look out for number one, but at a certain point, it starts wearing you down and you end up an empty, hateful shell. I did cause this mess, so it made sense I should be the one to clean it up. Don't get me wrong, your offer is something I simply cannot refuse, I just want to be sure this is something you want.

I turned my attention back to Michelle. I could feel her emotions rise up and radiate off of her. Michelle, I am so, so sorry....but I took a long pause, took in a deep breathe and exhaled as I continued sympathetically, Wouldn't it be .... better if he told you himself on his own terms? It would be a whole hell of a lot better than some stranger you just met spilling the beans... accidentally.

Besides, it's dangerous for him to even be here. I'm sure he will tell you soon. I placed my right hand hand on hers and my left over my chest, then continued in a joking tone of voice, Would it be better if I promised that if he didn't tell you in a certain time frame I'll hunt you down and tell you again? Because I'll do it, I was never a scout, but scouts honor.

“Those wolves and Vampires obviously don’t give a shit about you if they so flippantly revealed what they were. I’m not going to bunch myself into the same category. I know how this turns out for Humans. You either die or get convinced into becoming something you’re not. You become a target” Over my dead body was I going to see that happen again. I hadn’t heard many stories of the turning of Vampires and Wolves that involved them having an actual choice. Vampires usually tilted the scales with blood and compulsion. Wolves just selected their targets, humans that made the most sense to be turned. Wasn’t like either species logged online and put up a situations vacant bulletin and sat down for interviews. “Yeah, you know something is different about me, there's something different about you too.” Since the whole Satan thing was utterly ridiculous it felt safer. For her and for me. Soon as a label was added to it then she could seek out that very creature and I had a feeling she would. I knew far too many Witches and Warlocks that would love a lamb to come stumbling into their courtyards.

“A bloody Vampire party is not the place for me to be talking about what it actually means to be what I am. It’s not a game Michelle. I’m not going to take from you what you already know. I’m not going to try and stamp out your curiosity but I am going to do what those Wolves and Vampires didn’t and that’s make sure you know that if your avatar dies, theres no resurrection point and you’re in zone way over your level everything is going to agro” Couldn’t help the stupid frustrated smile that came over my face. “See? Now you’ve got me talking nerd. I just don’t want to increase the likelihood of you dying.”

Looking over at the Vampire my eyebrow quirked upwards. Wasn’t often that I met one that had managed to hold on to some semblance of being human. She actually seemed to still understand compassion which made me feel less crazy about asking for what I had. Actually, no, it still sucked. I was going to regret it later I could already tell. It would eat away my insides but it was all for the right reasons. Michelle could be a daredevil as much as she liked, I would be in her corner making sure that everyone else played nice. She just needed to not have this flippant attitude that this world could be compared to a video game where players who morphed into wolves, warlocks that wielded magick and bloodsuckers could party with a human and not have nefarious intentions. That even if they didn’t appear to, even if they didn’t, it was still risky as all hell.

“Do it. I know this seems drastic and unfair and…well…over protective but I’ve been down this path before.” I hadn’t actually specifically been in this position but my family had on many occasion. Customers I’d had. All of that was not something I wanted to sit back and watch happen. She would hate me if she knew later, I understood that but I would risk all of that to know that I wasn’t going to be a further catalyst to Michelle having her mortality stripped from her. “I feel drawn to you and until I can work out why that is….” That was an overshare, but not one that she was going to remember in a minute. Sounded like a right stalker. Maybe drastic measures seemed logical because I didn’t understand why. Was it just me? Was this something only I could feel? Or was she a shining beacon to all of those like me? “I’ll tell you, I will, I promise you but not like this Michelle.”
