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.

Thread Details
Michelle's place | About 40F | 3am



She was awake, but barely - the perfect in between that usually results in one talking in their sleep. Finally, Michelle kicked at the cover wrapped around her leg, trying to straighten out the sheets that had crept up toward her face. Something was different about tonight, and it wasn't just the fact that she was living in a new home. A brief open of her eyes revealed that she'd left her ring out, on the nightstand beside her bed. An accident, kind of, but not really as she hadn't really unpacked everything and wasn't really sure where she wanted to keep the thing anyway. Nothing about it looked like anything special. It didn't look expensive or unique, but Michelle was aware of its value. Of course, she hadn't realized that it would be worthless to anyone else, at least as far as its abilities went. Even if she'd come to learn that fact, she would still feel rather protective over the piece of jewelry. She reached to pick it up from the night stand, feeling as if it was strangely visible for the room to be as dark as it was. Not to the extent that it generated its own light, but it was certainly still easy to find with her tired eyes.

As soon as she touched it, she experienced a feeling different than usual, in fact, she'd never felt any feeling associated with it before other than instantaneously turning into a bird. She felt almost as if there was another presence in the room. She looked around, being as still as she could, thinking maybe Caly had woken up. Nothing, but she could swear it was as if there were eyes on her.

"There's more to this piece of jewelry than you think, Michelle." The voice was strange, quiet, but not beyond hearing, and it was almost as if there were two rather than one. Was it coming from the ring? Maybe, but it seemed moreso to be coming from nowhere. "Silly girl, you've been using it all wrong. Put it on." Michelle easily obeyed for the simple fact that it was a task she'd already done over and over again, she felt as though she knew what would happen next - but she didn't. She slid the ring over her finger and to her surprise, absolutely nothing happened, or so she thought. It only took her an instant to feel sour about it, until she heard the voice again. "Now focus, Michelle, think of your animal." Her mind was filled with swears and frustration, thinking this was some frustrating dream she simply wasn't waking up from, until she pushed the hair away from her face and remembered what the transformation felt like, and then it happened. She perched on her bed, awkwardly walking over the covers, then fluttered her wings until she was again over the floor and remembered just the opposite; the transition to human. And there she was. Human again. It wasn't a big deal, but it was. To her, it meant not having to search for the ring and put it on when she was in trouble. It meant always knowing where the ring was, and hopefully the inability of anyone who saw the occurrence to connect her ability with the ring. However, it meant even more to one who had gifted the ring. It meant that as long as Michelle wore the ring, her eyes were theirs.
