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 had went from excited, amazed, curious, ecstatic - to pissed. I felt like a teenager, one being lectured on the dangers of "reefer" or something. Of course, I knew it was very dangerous. I simply didn't care. Of course, I couldn't explain why, and if I tried to, I would sound like some emo suicidal train wreck. But that wasn't the case, either. The only thing I agreed with, maybe, was the nature in which the beans were spilled. To an extent I understood, but still, not completely. [i]He was the one making this conversation take longer than it needed to. I was desensitized to this kind of thing. You're a wolf? You're a vampire? You're a goddamn siren? Damn, that's badass. Move on. At this point, I would have been okay with being wiped or whatever, but I think what I hated more was the fact that I was being treated like a child. That's when the idea hit me.

Fine, but I want a compromise. I looked at the vampire. Can his memory be wiped too? I think it's only fair he learn something... interesting about me, then forget. Shit, was it kind of fucked up that I had a few "interesting" things I could tell? That could be erased? I turned my gaze to Kai after taking the last drink of my absinthe, realizing my mood had ruined the buzz. Hopefully the memory wipe would put me back in a happier place, too.

Only fair, right? My mind was flipping through the possibilities, and I recognized the vampire would know, she wouldn't forget my secret. But that didn't matter so much. Shit, more than likely she wouldn't even believe what I said. She would think I was simply a nut job, making up some crazy story to sound interesting. That would be kind of a shame, she did seem pretty cool. Could I be friends with both wolves, vampires, and a warlock? Not if these situations kept coming up.

By the way, my avatar is a fucking glitch in itself, I said, finally smiling again.

I eyed down and signaled another drink from a waiter, as he passed by and mouthed a silent thank you in his direction while I listened to Kai and Michelle. I found the situation now touching in a sort of way and I was a sucker for what seemed like a sweet relationship. Well, more like a sucker for almost any form of relationship drama. I knew Kai had good intentions for needing this done, and I couldn't help but stand behind him.

Oh, a secret! I sat up and forward in my chair, this was another thing I was a sucker for. It didn't even have to be a secret of any remote interest, like collecting stamps on the down-low or have a pet rock named Ivan, and so forth. I found I always enjoyed learning about as much as I could about a person. Some say that makes me nosy, but I choose to believe it makes me curious. It does seem only fair, after all, why does he get to have all the fun? I took my index finger to my nose and over my lips like I was going to make a shush noise, tapping it on my nose as I spoke, Just keep in mind, I will hear it, and most likely won't forget it.

The waiter came back and placed my glass gently on the table in front of me. Once he nodded and made his exit I continued talking to Michelle, still excited to hear about her secret and the conversation in front of me, I believe that one hundred percent. How about one day you show me this glitched avatar? I feel I could be good at this game..... Maybe. Do I get to be a rogue and use a super cool bow and arrow? I've always wanted to learn how to shoot. I paused for a second, Oh that was a metaphor, wasn't it? Hello oblivious, my name is Blake. Well, that's embarrassing.

So I agree to these terms and conditions, how about you, Kai? I turned to face him drink in hand, my eyebrows raised in curiosity as I took a sip of my drink. I couldn't help how much I was enjoying this, not that I wanted something terrible to happen to these two, because I really didn't. They took the time and had a conversation with me, a complete stranger. Would they regret that? Maybe down the line? I just still felt bad I spilled the beans. Plus nobody really deserves to have their memory wiped. Well, okay, there was that one douche bag, but he needed a lesson. Regardless though, sometimes the situation is just right.

“This isn’t what I would call fun.” Muttering to myself I finished off my absinthe, grimacing with the rocket fuel burn on my throat. Having my memory wiped was not going to be a new experience. My ex-girlfriend had done it often and not for the reasons why I was suggesting it right now. She had done it over and over, something she had admitted to later. When I learned too much about her, about her origins. Actually, when I thought about it, this was the same thing. That thought gave me even more of a reason to make sure I told Michelle when the time was right. I wasn’t doing this to permanently hide myself.

Looking over to Michelle I stared at her for a while wondering what it was she would tell me that I would forget. Wanting to know more about her was something that haunted me every single day so the thought of learning something, anything, even if it seemed insignificant sounded like the perfect punishment for doing this in the first place.

A strange thing. For the first time in recent memory being so interested in something the mystery and allure of the unknown wasn’t the adrenalin rush I sought. “Sure, I agree.” Running both my hands through my hair in nervous frustration I left out a long strangled sigh. At least this would all be a reset to the evening.

“Just..don’t give me long to think about it.” As soon as Michelle told me whatever it was she was opting to erase I wanted it to be gone. Even if I wasn’t going to remember, the thought of having a single second to know I was going to lose it as soon as I heard it felt like a disaster. What the hell was wrong with me? I’d only recently met this girl and now I was agonizing over not being able to know something that probably wasn’t going to be all that important in the bigger scheme of things. “But…don’t erase the memory that I did this. That this was my decision.” Couldn’t forget that I had done this in the first place.

Don't worry, I explained, looking toward Blake, I don't really expect you to believe it. She was a vampire, but this was convoluted and twisted, and shit I wasn't even sure how to word it. I guess humans can have interesting secrets, too. And then, I laughed to myself about the idea of playing WoW with a vampire. I played other games with a wolf, so why not? I'll show you my avi if you show me... nevermind. That was too cheesy even for me. But seriously, if you're interested I'd be more than happy to show you. I wondered, if humans were in the know compared vampires and wolves to cats and dogs. I didn't have a preference, I was learning. The wolves I had spent time with were just cool, down to earth, and respectful. Any arrogance was coincidental. Vampires, were usually sultry, sensual, and I longed for a close enough relationship with an older vampire. There would be so many stories to hear, life experiences, and not even just that but their reactions. How did they cope with the way shit changed? Or how much did it actually seem to change to them? Was it gradual enough so they barely noticed?

I took a drink after Kai's warning. I hoped it wouldn't take me so fucking long to figure out how to say it without Kai changing his mind.
Alright, here goes nothing. Another drink. The way I was born was completely just, fucked. My mom was knocked up by this dude, and got stressed I guess when she found her parents dead and she miscarried. The entire time I spoke I read their faces. Do you guys believe in possession? Even if it's um.. not intentional? Because, long story short that's what happened. I accidentally possessed my mom when.. I was miscarried. Don't ask me how, but some dude was able to split us up, but I should have been the one to leave. I guess she was heartbroken and weakened. So here I am.

Another drink was placed in front of me, and without even looking at what it was, I drank at least half of it, coughing a little before putting it down. Do you see what I mean? I'm a fucking glitch.

After listening to Michelle, all I could do is stare in bewilderment, secretly hoping my mouth wasn't wide open. In all of my travels, I had never heard anything like possession happening outside of movies and books. Even then, those stories were always some evil spirit, Michelle wasn't spinning her head backwards and singing Ozzy Osborne's "Crazy Train" backwards, so it was clearly safe to assume she wasn't an evil spirit.

Wait. I paused, my brow furrowed while my brain processed this new information. So how old does that make you verses your soul? Do you remember anything before you took over? I really love the analogy by the way.

I stopped and sat back in my chair realizing I was probably being rude, Oh! Uhm, sorry, I got a little carried away. There were so many questions I had wanted to ask, philosophies I wanted know, but I knew this probably wasn't the time. What did this mean for her and her beliefs? How did this event shape her as a person? What are her memories like? I felt like a child who just learned her favorite TV character was a real person. I was almost sad that she wouldn't remember telling me about this. I would have to find a sneaky way to not only get it out of her again, but to have a reason to run into her or to even have the conversation. I contemplated if there was a way for me to work around erasing the fact she told me, but it had been so long since I had done this, that I figured I better not try to play around just so I could feed my curiosity.

Biting at the corner of my bottom lip, I looked down at the table and let out a sigh, So.  Long pause as I slowly lifted my head and looked back and forth between Kai and Michelle Who wants to go first?
