The Cursed Zodiac Members (Fruits Basket)

  1. We've all heard of the Chinese Zodiac. Some of us were born the Year of the Monkey, and some the Year of the Sheep, and some the Year of the Boar. Admittedly, we probably share traits with our destined animal. But the Sohma family, ever since the beginning of time, delves much deeper than that. Born two months premature is the first sign of their Curse. The second is, when hugged by the opposite sex as an infant, they turn into one of the Chinese Zodiac animals. And lastly, as they grow older, everyone around them either grows fiercely protective of them or abandons them. Another thing-- their extreme loyalty to the God of the Zodiac. Members of the Zodiac Curse have struggled, will struggle, and are struggling to survive in the cold world they are being thrashed in suddenly. To keep the curse a secret, they have been hidden and either have been sent to a same-sex school as their own or tutored at home. But now, the God has decided to have them attend a co-ed school; normal school. That is where their lives will be changed, by the kind-hearted, the mean-hearted, the cold-hearted people around them. They just have to be careful of crashing into members of the opposite sex. There shall be no transforming in front of people. Otherwise, their little taste of normal will be ripped away from them, and they will be confined to their old lives. And the children left at the co-ed school will be left wondering what was wrong with the Sohma family and why they were so mysterious.


    So, that was my intro! I think I did a pretty good job. Especially with that emotional music. c: This is, obviously, based off the anime "Fruits Basket". I would like to play it off as if the original story never happened and that we're just marching to our own drum. I would appreciate an intermediate writing style please, and that we all remain loyal and civil. c:

    Before you click on this Slot List, read this:

    If two people or more want a certain Zodiac member position, they will both have to present me their character and I will choose. I will choose a character not based on if one is better than the other or my particular preferences. I will choose based on their contribution to the plot and the way they would balance out with other characters. Also, you don't have to play a Zodiac member, though it is advised. You can also play a normal human attending the co-ed school who profoundly affects a Zodiac member's life.

    The Boar - Courageous, independent, quick-tempered, do not like to compromise, a loner. Kind-hearted and loving deep down. Will only keep a few, valuable friends in life. (Open)

    Well, that's it. You may be wondering why we don't have a cat yet such as in the story. If we did, the story would center around the cat and the cat alone, and I want this to be about everyone. c: I hope that's okay. Anyway, show interest! ^^​
