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.

Index General ⋅ Clear ⋅ Late night/Early morning


Always worried that when I took the pain medicine I was going to sleep so long I’d piss myself. But I was getting, I wouldn’t say more resistant to it, but it wasn’t hitting me so hard lately. Not that it didn’t knock my ass out, but I had stopped feeling like I had to remind myself to breathe. Sometimes I had dreams and I was glad I didn’t remember them, but one I did remember was basically that I’d become invisible to everyone. Not literally, but no one would talk to me. Not Caly, not Vincent, not even Claire. I wouldn’t blame them, but it was still a painful dream. And of course it had to be that one I remembered.

I thought it might be another dream from my narcotic haze when in my dark room I saw an even darker figure sitting on the edge of my bed staring at me. The image surprised me, but it didn’t scare me. Again, maybe it was because I thought it was a dream - or maybe the medicine made me complacent.

I can’t decide if you’re really strong, or just really bad at killing yourself. It had been a long time but I instantly recognized that voice and the sullen tone behind it. Maybe it wasn’t sullen. Always felt like Shane tried too hard to sound.. Dark?

It’s been a while. What brings you here?
Research. I sat up and looked to the door, thinking my “guards” should have stopped him. Then I remembered that I’d talked Claire into going home for a rest. Not that I wanted Claire to stop him, I’d just found it curious she hadn’t. Ooohhkay. I think he might have said that before, that he just wanted to “watch” me. That he knew of my situation and just wanted to make sure I handled things okay. Which was fucking weird considering some of the weird shit I’d seen him do.

Nothing new then. He scooted up, wedging himself between the railing of the bed and myself. I could see his face from the yellow glow of the streetlight near the window - just a sliver through the pulled shade of the window. Not sure I feel up for a booty call, not yet. He shook his head, and I could tell he was unamused but not necessarily annoyed.

Mind answering a few questions? He traced the bruise on my neck with his thumb. He had a knack for making me feel.. Not scared but uncomfortable which I’m sure was his goal. Like he fed from awkwardness and tension. He didn’t stop there, he pulled down at the neckline of my top and I knew he wasn’t just trying to get a view of my rack. He could see the healing punctures. He didn’t look excited, amused, shocked - just like he was inspecting me. What causes it? Is it actually depression? A compulsion? Are you just sitting there with a knife to your wrist, hand shaking, trying to pull it away with sheer will? I sat up, pushing myself up with my arm and glaring down at him. What the fuck, Shane? The more honest question being how do you know, which - well I hadn’t understood the first question he’d used as an unceremonious greeting. Was barely awake. How do you know? What do you know? A quick, quiet chuckle from him. You’re not the only one. You’ve been an inspiration, Michelle. I have some clients, I’ve offered them your accident as a service. Only, they don’t last more than two years. All obviously suicide.

Alright, this was a dream. I didn’t even understand what he was saying, and I wasn’t sure I wanted to. My accident? What the hell are you - He was doing this to people? I couldn’t even translate the situation but whatever it was felt incredibly.. Wrong. Maybe I misread. Maybe he was helping them. So you know my problem. I fell onto my back and I started up at the ceiling. I know the situation, not the details. I need you to fill in the blanks for me, Michelle. What exactly goes on?

Whether or not he was pulling some shady shit, he might be able to help? I didn’t see the harm in trying to explain it. Especially to someone who had understood my situation more than myself. It’s not some kind of adrenaline rush, I mean shit it might feel like it. I don’t want to die. I just know I’m not supposed to be here. I can feel it. So when I’m close to something that can um.. Fix this broken situation, I’m pulled to it. It feeds me, and my brain shuts off and -

Your soul kicks in.

Can you fix it? I let my head fall to the side once again face to face with Shane. Very little distance between us in this tiny bed. For the first time ever, I saw a look of sadness fall over his face. Tension released but less in relief and more in defeat. I’d like to, Michelle.
