if you're familiar with the chinese zodiac, you may have heard of the zodiac curse. the spirits of the zodiac possesing a human soul, when the human is extremely fatigued or stressed or they are hugged by a member of the opposite sex they transform into the animal they are cursed by. you may recall the sohma family of japan, who was fell under this very curse, only to have it broken by a young girl. it's been years since the curse has reared its head, but now it has. the vengeful spirits have now embedded themselves in several popular musicians, and now they wait for someone to be so kind as to break their curse.
"Long ago, God told all the animals he was throwing a banquet tomorrow, and not to be late. The mischievous rat told his neighbor, the cat, that the banquet was the day after tommorrow. So, the next day, all the animals lined up for the banquet, and the rat rode there all the way on the ox's back. All the animals had fun, except for the cat, who was at home sleeping and dreaming for a banquet that would never come."

now. i’m by no means a bitch. so my rules are going to be short, sweet, and to the point.
first off. literacy is a must. hopefully i don’t have to go in too much detail here, correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, ect. all paragraph roleplaying or ‘para-ing’ must be literate.
the tumblr for your character is basically a blog for the actual character. please have ask enabled and include a link back to this roleplay. please distinguish if you are talking out of character and try to keep it to a minimum on the dash. your character must have an aim. sorry, this is a must since most of the para-ing will be over aim.
keep the out of character drama off the dash. please we don’t want to see the roleplays arguing. if you’re having a problem with another roleplayer, tell a mod or admin, we will help take care of it.
keep your character as close to their bio as possible. i’ve put a lot of effort into these characters.
curse musicians/band members can hug each other with out transforming, but they can not hug non-cursed members of the opposite sex. say jack barakat, who is cursed as the snake, he can hug cassadee pope, the rabbit, but not tay jardine, who is non-cursed. if you are reading these rules, please title your audition with your favorite ice cream flavor.
the cat and fox have secondary curses, which whoever plays them will be informed of.
do not be disrespectful of any of the members of this roleplay, especially the mods/admin.
please have the tumblr already made when you submit your audition and submit the audition through that blog.
members who are inactive for over a week without telling me will have their character re-opened. reservations are good for 24 hours.
