dorkycrossing confesses finally
thats my brother hes having flashbacks from the Great Orange War
Ah yes… The Great Orange War. I remember it as if it were just yesterday…
It all started when young General Citrus founded New Tangland. All was well for the first year, but then rumors from their neighboring colony, Sweet Citrus Hills, spread into the new territory. The tangerines had no respect for New Tangland’s leader and felt their land was stolen. They accused General Citrus of not being a true orange but rather a tangerine, for his parents allegedly were born in Sweet Citrus Hills, as was he.
The citizens of New Tangland couldn’t believe the rumors. General Citrus, who had become governor, was pulled out of his rule of power and put on trial. Those were dark times then… the Botanical Nation of Fruits had a “guilty until proven innocent” judicial system. Technology had not advanced as far as it has today, so there was nothing General Citrus to do. He was charged with treason and publicly executed via juicing.
General Citrus’ best friend, O. von Rangé, was appalled and furious at the court’s blind decision. During the election, he had his name put on the ballot and soon became governor. He started to address the rumors and accused public officials in Sweet Citrus Hills of strategically assassinating General Citrus. He built this up to his constituents and they began rioting, begging their government for revenge.
Governor O. von Rangé, several months later, received a letter from Sweet Citrus Hills’ governor, Tanjereen Sweet, who declared war.
Thousands of oranges and tangerines fought at the border of the colonies for two years. It was no good, however. The Freeze of ‘69 led to a dramatic drop in births and increase in deaths on both sides and they had both lost a dangerous amount of soldiers. The colonies reluctantly gave in, calling a draw.
Over the years, things have become less tense among the new generation’s way of thinking. They wanted all citrus fruits to intertwine their roots and be proud of their genus, not their species. The veterans remain cold and cynical, though, as do their relatives. They scoff in disgust as they see tangerines and oranges marrying. They become angry when other fruits, like the berries, say that they are just one in the same.
The oranges and tangerines that survived the war? They’ll never forget. It will always haunt them, for as long as they live until they slowly reach their decomposition stage where they will finally be freed from the horrid memories. But for now, the easily-bruised fruits must live with their bruises. And we must respect them.
