In an alternate universe Aikatsu is not for public use, any and all Aikatsu Machines have been taken over by the Military and reprogrammed to go from idol stages to Military Combat. Any and all former idols were hunted down,branded,charged,photographed and sent away to prison for their crimes of being an idol.
Hoshimiya Ichigo and several other idols from Starlight.Dream Academy and many other academies had all gone into deep hiding,some had gone overseas using aliases and disguises until they got onto new ground and were settled. Only Ichigo, Ran, Aoi,Otome, Sakura, Shion,Kaede and Yorika had to stay in Japan due to commitments that couldn't be altered and had started using stage names as their own names and gone their separate ways, each vowing to try and keep in touch by writing letters and staying off of Kirakritter and to always remember to use their stage names instead of real names to avoid being captured,branded,charged,photographed and sent to the newly built prison out on one of the uninhabited islands in the Pacific Ocean.
Several years go by and Ichigo and each of her friends fell in love,got married and started families of their own being careful to keep their years at Starlight Academy hidden in the deepest shadows. While on her solo tour, Ichigo had met,courted and fallen in love with a man by the name of Tsukishino Rio whom she took back to Japan with her to meet her family as Rio had none of his own. After three years of being engaged, Rio and Ichigo had set a wedding date for July 15th and sent out wedding invites to all her friends through the mail being very careful to use stage names instead of given names.
After the happy event went off without a hitch, Ichigo and Rio settled into their new lives as husband and wife and the very next month Ichigo was late and dismissed it as being late due to stress. It wasn't until she went to the doctor that she found out she was pregnant only to have her joyful news overshadowed by Rio's diagnosis of end stage leukemia, he was dying and wouldn't be able to meet his son or daughter when it was time for them to be born.
Flash forward eleven years to Poppy's eleventh birthday which yet again was spent in her school's detention room, this time the penalty was for her failure to swiftly present the mandatory washroom pass
Poppy stares at the clock as it slowly ticked to quarter past four then goes back to organizing her books when the teacher called her name saying "Tsukishino Poppy come to the front of the room and collect your coat and bag then begone with you to the Administration Office! The Administrator would like to have a few words with you about your demerit count!'
Signing off on a hall pass the teacher also stapled a uniform demerit slip to it saying 'Now off with you to the Administrator's Office, she is not a patient person! By the way, your skirt is six point three inches too short, it's not the skirt that was handed out at the beginning of the year nor is that this schools top! When you go home tonight ensure you lay out the correct school uniform!'
Collecting the hall pass and demerit slip, Poppy grabbed her school's hat,coat and bag then headed out the door and down the hall to the left to the Administrator's Office where she knocked on the door saying "Excuse me, you wanted to see me?" Looking up from the file on her desk, the administrator replied curtly "Yes, come in Tsukishino and close the door!" Slipping in to the office, Poppy closed the door behind her,draped her school coat over the back of the chair,sat her bag down beside the chair with her hat tucked inside then quickly sat down on the chair as the administrator said "Poppy I don't understand why you are racking up so many demerit points this term! None of them make sense! Explain demerit number twenty four to me, failure to find a seat swiftly in the lunch room? Why should it matter how fast it takes you to find a seat in the cafeteria? Who gave you this demerit?'
Opening the zipper to her back pack then reached into her back pack, Poppy pulled out her demerit book and flipped it open saying "Ahh here we go, demerit number twenty four: Failure to swiftly find a seat in lunch room to commence eating lunch. That one came from Sensei Shiro the cafeteria monitor. I was the twenty fifth person in line waiting to hand the lunch lady my menu card so I could get my lunch when she rushed me accusing me of dawdling. Demerits number twenty five and six come from the teacher in the detention room who is not very familiar with our fall and winter uniform as she gave me another demerit for wearing the wrong uniform.'
Taking the hall pass and demerit slip from Poppy's hand, Administrator Tsukinoshiro skimmed the brief note and said "It is apparent she is not familiar with the winter uniform's color difference from the Spring and Summer uniform colors which are lighter. This is a demerit that I am going to over turn as it is frivolous. I am also over turning the lunch time demerits that have accumulated, there is just no way to move faster than the lunch line allows. What is demerit fifteen for? Unauthorized usage of the water fountain without hall pass? All of these accumulated demerits are frivolous! Not worth being dignified,so I will give you a new demerit book'
