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 was enjoying every second of this. Every look of disgust, every snide remark, every glare. It wasn’t intentional that I surrounded myself with people who either respected me or feared me enough to pretend to, even if I wasn’t so bad. I could soak in this honesty all day. There was nothing real about constantly being surrounded by suckups. And as much as I loved Noelle, I almost envied her relationship with Benjamin. Someone who resisted the bond. Someone who gave me a source of, I don’t know, confrontation. Another sire? Now? What a terrible idea. The last thing I needed was another weakness. Very wet, I mumbled. What was it the kids said? Come at me. Do you really want to see who would win that fight? I sat up now, thinking about my own thin frame and just how fragile I likely looked. I’d been a starving farm girl when turned. I knew I looked brittle, so very breakable. I envied Noelle’s figure, I envied anyone able to change their body with weight and muscle and curves. But when it came to combat, I loved everything about my own body. I loved how nimble it was, I loved how even when my foes knew of my strength, my body couldn’t help but give them a false sense of confidence. Whether this was or wasn’t where his came from, it didn’t matter. His confidence was just that, false.

This entire encounter had me smiling, ear to ear. Could I just sit in a booth and let him hurl insults at me all day? I began laughing, now resting my elbows on the table, covering my face, at how insane it was. Was it the gin? Had it made me giddy? I was trying, I swear it, not to anger him again, but when you were rewarded with what you wanted, it was basic psychology and I found sometimes those notions applied to anything that was self aware - or not. Pavlov’s dog, right? You’d be surprised, Alpha. I thought it was common to take pictures of your dinner for social media. Tons of positive comments.

I would have laughed another time, but I couldn’t even pretend. No, this was the time to show my authority. I could use him, whether he knew it or not he could use me, but our relationship wasn’t critical. Simply convenient. If he didn’t take the brownie then the rats could have it. The best I’ll do is a real time trade, mutt. Contrary to what you believe, I can do much more for you than you can do for me. You’re just a second weapon against the supremacy fucks. I’ll live without wolf to dine on, but where will you be with the collars? And they’ll only get more sophisticated as long as the supremacy is allowed to exist. My hands folded over each other, my head cocked slightly to the side. I said deactivate, not remove. Don’t get me wrong, it’s in the works. But another thing that isn’t easy with the supremacy still around to make things… difficult.

My eyes narrowed on her, a disgusted look all over my face and didn't give a fuck. Do you really think it'd be me you'd be tangoing with? I asked bluntly. It wasn't like I could summon Lilith... Well, technically I could. I had a fuck load of rage I could easily tap into at any minute of the day, and most days it took everything I had to keep that lid from popping off. But the truth was, she also had the power to surface. I knew exactly what fed her too, exactly what lured her out. I knew exactly what gave her power. And for the most part, it was something beyond my control. The truth was... I wouldn't want to be there when Lilith and the Ancient came face to face. The problem was the fact that if it ever happened, I'd have to be.

Her smile fucking got to me, and I hated it. I hated that I let it get to me. What did I expect? Civility didn't just happen, it was born from at least some level of respect, and she had none for me just like I had none for her. Her laughter... The comments which had clearly devolved into petty jabs... I was three seconds from done with the fucking Ancient for good. Remember what she offered you. Fuck that inner voice. I fucking hated it more than I hated her. You're fucking sick. You may be able to heal physically, but your mind is fucking gone, Ancient. I believed it too. 'Just another immortal psychopath on a power trip. Like I needed anymore of those in my life.

Fine. I answered, knowing the deal wasn't going to get any better than that. I already felt physically fucking ill for negotiating with her in the first place. But I stay. You wanna talk private shit with her, fine. But I'm not leaving her with you. She's about the best fucking hope I got and if you think I'm leaving her with your demented fucking mind you're crazier than I thought, which is really fucking crazy. And this was the best deal I had, unfortunately. Removal of the collars was top priority, but if all I could manage was deactivation, then I was gonna take it...
