It is war that will be declared on the city of Harrison Creek, Oregon. Why is the war happening?
It’s happening because the city had wasted its time trying to find a fictional girl while other missing girls were ignored. It’s as if the city didn’t care about those girls, favoring a fictional girl who would never be found.
Ironically, the city didn’t like that imaginary girl to begin with.
To be fair, let’s recap what happened within the previous months:
Tanya Shinnok disappeared while she was with her friends on June 20, 2010. Ten days later, she was reported missing. The Harrison Creek Police Department, perplexed about the mystery, arrested over 50 people during their investigation.
Then some parody news site declared Tanya to be imaginary, like she never existed. I’m angry that they called Tanya fake, like the summer that had been spent searching for her didn’t matter.
“This is the worst Christmas ever!” Trevor snapped as he watched the Shinnok family arguing over how their family was humiliated by the “Tanya Shinnok” hoax. “Shara, what were you thinking when you created Tanya, anyway?”
“For your information, Trevor, Katrina stole Tanya from me and claimed her as real,” said Shara. “The sooner people find that out, the better off we will be. Besides, it’s not like I’m not filing a lawsuit against the city for basically stealing my character and using her in its twisted fanfiction.”
“You should,” said Trevor. “And even better, you should sue Gemma for trash-talking Tanya. She had no right to do that. Now look at what she did!”
Just then, the kids watched as Raven (Trevor’s father and Shara’s uncle) was berated for failing to be a good father to Tanya. As he yelled back, Shara said, “You’re right, Tre. This IS the worst Christmas ever.”
