.:General Shop Rules:.
Since all shops need rules...here are the general rules set forth for the shop. Failure to follow these rules will get you gray or blacklisted


1. No profanity, fighting or drama! Be respectful to everyone at all times.
2. Only send PMs to Mihano Kiri _Usune, the shop mule.
3. Keep in mind that we are real people and real life issues may come up. In the case of an issue I hope that all of you are respectful enough to give us the time needed
4. Art theft is NOT allowed. This includes non-staff taking the Usune art and coloring it.
5. No advertising! Keep it in your signature block.
6. No refunds will ever be given.
7. Payment for all Usune is due within 24 hours. If they aren't paid for, they will be re-sold. In rare case you can tell us what is going on and we will try to accommodate you.
8. Do not ask for a job or to guest color.
9. You may own as many Usune as you can afford to take care of. However, each event will have it's own rules.
10. Selling any Usune by yourself is against the rules. If you choose to sell a Rosebud, it must be done through the shop via. shop-set limited ticket raffle with the shop getting a percent. You can only do this once. You may only give away your Usune to a friend for free or give to the shop for free rehoming.
11. Bribing owners for their Usune is NOT allowed; if anyone tries it, both parties will be subject to consequences!
12. Do not ask someone if you can co-own their pet. The only person who can ask for co-ownership is the owner.
13. Two Usune, even male and female, can't be made to be exactly alike or similar unless they are twins or have permission from the owner.
14. Please keep in mind that the owners of the shop can amend these rules at any time.
15. Please follow all Gaia's TOS


.:Thread RP Rules:.


1. Use whatever tense the creator of the RP went with (present or past)
2. Humans can't understand what a Usune is saying, so RPing as a human will basically be interactions between you and the Usune.
3. Try to not to leave anyone out. Give people a chance to join in.
4. No god-modding
5. When RPing your Usune, it is recommended that you use a text color, just to make it easier.
6. Please do not bring different pets in to the thread. We would perfer that it be a RP for Usune's only.
7. Non-cosplays cannot take the name of a cosplay character and they cannot take that cosplay's personality either.
8. Do not RP someone else's kit, without their permission first.
We also try to follow the Daisy Code here

.:F.A.Q:.


    Q:. How do I get a Usune, ect.?
      A:. Through, flatsale, raffle, or auction.

    Q:. OMG I CAN HAZ NAO FREE!!!111!?
      A:. No so please do not ask. You can acquire them just like everyone else. Through FS, Raffle, or Auction.

    Q:. Can we co-own?
      A:. No, this causes a lot of drama, and besides two people keeping one rose is kinda weird.

    Q:. Can they breed?
      A:. Yes however, the breeding process can only be done by an adult Usune. Please see breeding for other answers.

    Q:. Can I re-sell my pet?
      A:. No, period.

    Q:. Are these role-play required?
      A:. No, however we do ask that you drop in every once in a while so we know you didn't just take a pet and run. Role play will have certain advantages however, so it might be a good thing if you stick around and RP.

    Q:. How long do they take to grow up?
      A:. These aren't exact estimates. IRL issues can happen.
      The buds bloom in to kits from a couple of days to two weeks.
      The kits grow up to adults from three weeks to a month.

    Q:. Can I sell or give away my Usune's baby?
      A:. Sure! All selling is done through the shop. The shop gets 25%, the breeder gets 50%, and the owner gets 25%. It is against the rules to sell a baby on your own.

    Q:. How come I would only get 25%?
      A:. Because we were prefer you not to do that. You can as the rules state do this only once, because these are pets not gold machines.

    Q:. How do I get a mate for my Usune??
      A:. RP in the guild or thread. Bluntly asking in the thread is a no-no. PMing an owner of a single adult is ok too. Just don't PM them more than once.

    Q:. OMG! Did you draw these yourself??
      A:. No. I commissioned KonaSenpai to draw them. We do color them though.

    Q:. Are you hiring?
      A:. We will tell you when or if we are hiring so please DO NOT ASK

    Q:. I don't have a question that's here...What do I do?
      A:. If it's not listed here, PM the Mule with the title subject, F.A.Q

Once upon a clear dark night, a young girl clad in faded blue jeans and a plan white t-shirt, minus a few stains, stood infront of a row of trees that marked the entrence to the Forest of Usune. This forest had been said to been forbidden because of the creatures that lurked within the trees that seemed to draw in the darkness.

Despite the tales that spewed from the mouths of the ones that claimed to have gotten out of the forest barely alive, the young girl stood in front of the forest. Her golden eyes twinkled in delight as he tossed her brown hair over her should with a swift flick of her wrist. And with that, she trudged through the trees, traveling farther and farther into the forest that never saw light.

The longer she was in the forest, the more the girl wondered how the plants at the base od the trees grew with out and sunlight. The tree's canopies were way to large and without gaps to allow sunlight to filter though and reach the dazzling plants at the base of there trunks. But none the less, beautiful flowers shone brightly when the moonlight hit them, whenever it was able to touch the petals, and sparkled like diamonds.

The girl was about to turn around and leave when out of the corner of her eye, she spotted the most dazzling, bright red rose, hidden in the mass of a bush. It was sitting in the most shadiest part of the forest, yet it was the most brillent by far. She carefully bent down to examine it closer. Her long thin fingers had just reached the dew covered petals when she noticed a pair of glimmering red eyes watching her. Startled, she grabbed the dazzling rose without knowing and pulled it away from the bush, right before she turned and ran away from the forest and back to her home.


-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-



Tired from running the whole way, the girl collapsed on her doorstep. Panting, she looked down at her hand when she felt a sharp pain. In her hand was the rose. She hadn't remembered picking it, but she must have, the proof was in her palm. Sighing, she stood. The girl opened the door and went to her cabinets. First she need to clean her cut from the thorn, then find a proper vase for the rose.

Once her cut was clean and bandaged, the girl grabbed a clear crystal vase from her cabinets and filled it with water. After filling it she picked up the rose and gentle placed it in. She stared at it solemnly, knowing that it wouldn't last long, but hoped for the best.

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-



A few weeks later the girl looked at the dying flower. It was sadly down to it's last petal, which was sure to fall off any moment. Scratching the side of her head, she sighed unhappily. turning towards the fridge she began to scavenge through it, just as the sound of glass hitting the floor broke the air. Wide-eyed, the girl turned around to find, pieces of a broken vase, a withered petal, and a fox kit with bunny ears.

After discovering that every rose picked fromt he forest turns into these creatures, the girl made stared to sell these animals to kind, caring owners that would watch over them. But what did she call these animals of course? Usunes, after the forest.

What happened to her kit, you ask? Well the girl named it Mihano Kiri, after herself. The girl grew up and so did the kit, eventually becoming a beautiful goddess.

There are only certain times when Usune are able to breed. The weather needs to be just right and in times of winter the green house has to be prepared correctly or the offspring won't grow right. To create the offspring essence is taken from the parents (piece of fur) and planted in soil. This is done because of the way Usune's start their lives in the world. Because of the way breeding take place all pairings ( f,f/ f,m/ and m/m) are allowed. The offspring is born when a rose bud peaks out of the soil and should turn into a bloomed rose anywhere from a few days to two weeks. Usune can not breed unless they have been an adult for longer then a month.


    For Breeding ::
      When breeding is open you will see in this post, all the information you need to receive a breeding slot. Such as when, who are doing them, how they will be done and how many pots are open.


    Determining the Number of Offspring ::
      The colorist will do a random number generator with the following values.
      RP Couple - 3-6
      Non-Rp Couple - 2-6
      God/dess - 3 (no rolling)


    Determining Gender ::
      Gender is determined doing another random number generator. One for female and Two for male. This will be done for all offspring.

      To snag a breeding slot you will need to post the following form.

    [size=24][color=red]BREED MY PETS![/color][/size]

    [b]Payment is From[/b]:: (You, both, other)
    [b]RP[/b]: (Yes or No)
    [b]Link[/b]: (if applicable)



    Some other information ::
      Breeding is based on a system of rolls with only one or two exceptions.

      Normals/Angelics/Demonics may all interbreed. The buds that arrive will be a mixed collection, which means there can be a mixture of the parents in the kits, or only one parent in the kits, or in the rare cases of more then one generation there can be no mixture from the parents.

      God/desses may breed with the lesser breeds. However, if you breed a God/dess with a Normal/Angel/Demon it will not be a godly bud.


    Pricing ::
      Normal Couples - 4k total (2K from each 'parent')
      Angel/Demon Couples - 4k total (2K from each 'parent')
      God/dess Couples - 10k total (5K from each 'parent')
