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.

Activity: I do not work, and I'm around quite a bit. But I do have other hobbies and relationships I like to devote my time to. And I also have sleep pattern problems and health issues that kill my brain. I post when I want to, or feel up for it, while it can be frequent, it can also be sparse. However, I always make sure to keep my activity updated in my member page so you'll always be notified of my activity status.

Posting Style: I always post in first person. I do not match post size, and I very rarely proof read. I always use italics surrounded by quotation marks for NPC's or any secondary characters. I always use the dialogue code for my first character. I always use line breaks to indicate a time skip or to help separate conflicting conversations. And lastly, flashbacks or dream sequences will always be entirely in italics and separated with a line break.

Posting Niche: Doom and gloom is my niche, and everything that comes with that including mental and physical torment. If it's deeply depressing, insanely fucked up/twisted, infuriatingly dark, or menacingly gory, it's right up my alley. But I also really enjoy romance (yes, I'm not afraid to admit it) and everything that comes with that, including smut and ships and breakups and makeups. I'd say I actually need both my doom and gloom and romance in order to completely enjoy my role play experience.

Posting Preference: I'll write anything that fits into the Index universe canon. There is no need to fade to black with me or give me trigger warnings. I am open to anything. The only thing I will not tolerate is people passing judgement on pairings, plots, threads, characters, or role players. If you don't like it, don't read it! The only people that know what is canon for their characters, is the people playing said characters.

What I'd like to see more of: Intimate relationships, hands down. I find it incredibly strange that most of our characters are in their twenties/thirties and they aren't dating. They just aren't. And if they do, I feel there is this fear people feel over allowing their characters to love. I personally find nothing wrong with falling in and out of love, in both real life, and in role play. It's just a part of life. It doesn't matter if your character is in love for a week, or a decade, I think it's important to let them feel it and for the character and the writer to admit it. It is nothing to be ashamed of!

The only other thing I personally feel is lacking and I'd like to see more of is friendships. I have a secret love for ''the sisterhood'' and ''the brotherhood'', meaning, I love the bonds between women and bonds between men in friendships. None of my characters have actually had a played best friend, and that to me is incredibly sad. Even having a group of friends is something I feel is too hard to come by. In fact, I think it's the missing bonds of friendship that make plots fall a little flat most of the time.
