Even though Katie isn't the sort to go pointing fingers at her teammates, it's no lie that there may have been a few too many jokes from the team about stealing her bunnies. Below is some possibly true information about the HINT team that might help the investigators track down the culprit(s)!


Prime Suspects
Amy {lilyleia78} doesn't like having chocolate sitting around everywhere, because she's worried one of her dogs would get into it.
Z {paragonWizard} enjoys baking, and recently made this extravagantly huge chocolate cake, but nobody knows where they got all that chocolate from.
Eve {supermerlocked} is simply a chocoholic - it's a surprise the bunnies stuck around this long!
Lauren {zimmy} had been heard muttering to herself about whether chocolate bunnies were entirely made of chocolate, or if they were in fact hollow.
Hannah {Hannah Abbott} is interested in the holidays of religions other than her own, like Easter, but based on her Jewish traditions, is likely to start with the food.
Darya loves eating snacks (especially those of the sweet variety) while she binge-watches movies. On her very recent Romance movie binge, she had no food of her own to nibble on.
Jessica heard a rumor that chocolate bunny ears are delicious when dipped into coffee... and was recently seen with some brown smudges on her face.
Laura {Lauramarie} is planning an Easter egg hunt for Easter, and has been overheard discussing with colleagues that she is planning to obtain some chocolate bunnies for the hunt.
Kasey wants to throw a bunny-themed party for spring and has been heard mentioning an idea of using chocolate bunnies as an edible cup for drinks, but doesn't know where she could get enough for the party.
Karli {duckie} has been seen tip-toeing around the HINT Forums Headquarters with a large bag. Passerbyers have stated that they smelt chocolate coming from the bag. But is it the chocolate bunnies, or her lotion?
Nelly is trying to figure out how bunnies and Easter eggs relate to each other, while she snacks on her favorite snack...CHOCOLATE, but she has eaten so much, we cannot tell the original shape or origin.
Ashleigh has been overheard having a conversation with her pet rock about whether or not chocolate bunnies have souls, and if they do, whether or not they can be stolen without anyone realizing.

You are welcome, but not required, to use the above information about the mods in your story.

So we would be using two characters? Say ron and Terry both in the story?
