Rumor: Aedes has been absent from school since early December and rumor has it that she was sent to Juvie Island for blackmailing a student. Who that might no one knows for sure but people are talking about it.

Who's Hearing It?: Anyone attending Starlight Academy and those whom are familiar with Aedes

Link to Thread / Chat Log: Aedes being sent to Juvie Island would happen some time after she was initially sent to detention in this thread HERE.

Rumor: There's a new drug hitting the streets of Manta Carlos. It takes the form of a dark red crystalline powder and goes by a number of names: Fall and Devil Dust, among others. The police have gotten small amounts off of some arrests, but so far haven't made comments about further investigation. Rumor has it that the stuff is made from demon blood.

Who's Hearing It?: The police, definitely, as well as some of the less scrupulous members of the Manta Carlos community.

Rumor:
1) There may or may not be a ghost haunting the halls of the academy dorms at night. People are seeing shadows that seem to move, and a feeling that someone is watching you can be felt by some dorm students as they pass the halls on occasion.

2) Some trashy tabloids have been circulating that the relationship between Yuki Hayashi, brother to the heir apparent of GeneCorp, and his family has completely broken down. Reports state that he and his family are no longer on speaking terms, and that he's even plotting a coup to take over the family business.

Who's Hearing It?:
1) Students of the academy would hear about the ghost, especially those who have rooms near a certain red-haired actor...

2) Anyone who reads rumour magazines and tabloids would see this story mentioned on the front page, but not necessarily as the main story. Yuki's friends and acquaintances may or may not have had copies of the tabloid posted to their front door by a mysterious source...
