Need help with a story!

Recommended Posts

In an earlier episode, Thomas, the main character accidentally used his powers to heal Trevor, a struggling cancer patient and aspiring botanist. He does so by singing him a song that he wrote.

A reporter interviewing Trevor, hears Trevor’s story about how he got better after Thomas sang to him and dubs him the miracle singer.

The story catches like wildfire and Thomas is an overnight celebrity healer.

The reporter however, is not an ordinary reporter but a Nightmare Agent. Nightmare Agents are on a mission to extract Dreamonium, the substance that dreams are made out of by way of stealing, destroying, or getting people to give up on their dreams.

The  writer’s block I am having is how does the reporter use their reprinting on Thomas to extract Dreamonium from the audience or in more simple terms.

How does a reporter kill people’s dreams with a story about a singing healer?

My brother suggested a fallen hero angle where The reporter tries to create some kind of scandal but I can’t for the life of me figure out what a believable scandal for a 12 year old viral celebrity would be?

 

Any ideas? Thoughts? Suggestions?

The parents/teacher/older sibling/etc. actually wrote the song.

Problem is the song in question is an important plot point and it was indeed written by him but an accusation could work.
