|Cersei Lannister||In the period March 14 - April 7, two young men and a young woman have been diagnosed with a previously unknown disease whose nature has yet to be fully determined. Preliminary diagnostic testing has revealed the disease to have similarities to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus and share symptoms with schizoaffective disorders. All subjects that have been diagnosed are showing what are assumed to be late-stage symptoms, which are detailed below.
Subject A is a caucasian male of German descent, and has displayed a proclivity towards egregious self-harm and dangerous thought patterns. While lucid on the surface, prolonged surveillance has shown the individual to engage in self-mutilation that has resulted in them being physically restrained to prevent further damage. They run a dangerously high fever of 104.6 degrees constantly, which is believed to have done significant damage to the hippocampus. The individual expired after biting off their own tongue, medical professionals were not able to stem the exsanguination process quickly enough.
Subject B is a middle-eastern female that shared a domicile with A. She has displayed a similarly high fever but has yet to display psychosis to the degree of her partner. According to her explanation, her partner had developed a rash and a fever three weeks prior to being quarantined, but had dismissed it as dermatitis and the common cold. By the time she had began to develop the initial symptoms, he had began acting irrationally and displaying a tendency towards dangerous and suicidal acts. Formal neuroimaging of the subject have shown erosion to her gray matter, and a damaged hippocampus. Pain and fever reducing medications have been unsuccessful in mitigating this process.
Subject C was detailed as displaying extreme and irrational behavior inside of the Charles de Gaulle Airport, and proceeded to violently assault pedestrians when security forces asked him to leave the premises. Eyewitnesses reported that the man had suddenly began screaming and bashing his head against a flight informational display system. It is unknown how many individuals came into direct contact with Subject C at the incident. Parisian police made attempts to detain the individual, but the ensuing struggle ended with the subject being neutralized indefinitely.
As of now the public should take similar precautions they would take to prevent the spread of communicable diseases such as HIV or Influenza. The disease appears to be bloodborne in nature, as the cellular structures of the disease appear to attach themselves to the white blood cells and platelets of the afflicted. However, the true nature of the disease has yet to be fully determined, so the use of personal protective equipment such as isolation masks are advised while in public spaces.

|Cersei Lannister||Late last night, the CDC's Paris containment camp was overthrown by patients in a mutual fit of madness. Mass paranoia and aggression tore through the already compromised location, forcing officials to abandon their post. Meanwhile, riots overtake most of the beloved city.
In London, the unrest is just beginning as the disease begins to rapidly spread throughout the city and the UK. It has been declared that the nation, comprised of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, would seal it's borders. The Republic of Ireland has showed its support by following suit.
Transylvania's leadership fell ill shortly after the begin of the spread. It is now governed by the sheer will of the madness the disease has instilled upon it's people. Surrounding countries have closed borders and placed military at all checkpoints to prevent the spread of the disease.
Meanwhile, Port au Prince and Sydney are taking all necessary precautions. Containment Camps have been set in place, along with a strong military presence. The United States has officially seen cases of the disease in all major cities. Military is evacuating all healthy citizens to quarantine zones for observation, before being taken to safe zones.
A cure is in the works at this time, however medical officials refuse to comment on their progress or the true nature of the disease.
It is estimated that a total of 10-20 million people have lost their lives to this 'Red Death', worldwide.

|Cersei Lannister||REALM NEWS
An outbreak of a deadly disease only known as Red Death has overtaken the world as a whole. It seems very few of the world's dark underbelly are safe, forcing vampires, werewolves, slayers, angels, demons, and witches alike into unprecedented precautions. Food supplies are beyond limited for some, while others are under the threat of the very air they breathe. An already violent spread of races is slowly becoming unraveled, incapable of remembering their alliances and bringing harm unto anyone who crosses their paths.
While many search for a cure to this disease on their own, in light of the CDC's refusal to share their progress, there is one who is taking matters into their own hands and addressing the Realm as a whole: Dr. Adam Williams.
Proposing a Grey Zone, location yet to be determined, Dr. Williams has drafted a proposal to all walks of life with no room for prejudice.
We can only hope he acts quickly, and that others answer his call to peaceful arms.

|Cersei Lannister||Realm Finds Relief
Citizens of the Realm are finally finding relief from the Red Death. While the treatment noted in the below article is for mortals, it has been noted that those who feed upon the treated will be alleviated in the same way.
It is unclear at this time how long it will take for the supernatural community to recover. Efforts to find a true cure are expected to continue as individuals continue to die of the strange disease, however timely it may be.
CDC Cracks a Code
Overnight last night, the Center for Disease Control found success through failure. Countless hours, persons, wins, and losses contributed to the only known treatment for the disease known as Red Death.
"Through controlled human trials with willing participants, we were able to construct the closest thing to a cure we are able to find at this time," a spokesperson commented in response to questions.
While the treatment is not a cure, it is already being heavily distributed to those surviving the disease. The CDC states that those infected will continue to remain so, though the disease will remain dormant until such a time that death is imminent.
Some side affects of this treatment may include confusion and a surge of serotonin (the proclaimed 'happy hormone') as it attacks the psychoactive tendencies of the disease. These can side effects will dwindle over a 24 hour period.
Treatments may be collected at CDC centers for those able, and are otherwise being administered by the military. It is expected that society as a whole will be treated by the end of the week.
From Cersei and Smith:
Thank you to everyone who joined in throughout the plot drop event! We hope you enjoyed it, because we definitely enjoyed reading all the stories of your efforts.
Please continue your stories and help us to create a healthy Realm again! Over the next week, extension users will be able to monitor the progress of the treatment for the Red Death until it has been completely eradicated from the forefront of society.
Make no mistake, this is not a cure - the Red Death is always around the corner, waiting for it's time.
