But when hopes, dreams and the New York State Division of Parole force them together, fate takes over and hate soon grows into a different sort of passion.

SoCal by Krazyk85
Being with them wasn't the problem. Losing me was. A life filled with sandy beaches and sunshine, I felt safe. Nothing bad happens here in SoCal except bad mexican food. Or so I thought. This is not your everyday love story. Based on the movie Savages. For Kninut, an Edward, Bella, Jasper- polyfic

The Age of Innocence by pattyrose
On the eve of the Second World War, young Isabella has been taken from all she knows and is now stepdaughter to one of the richest men in America.

TLS Special Sneak Peek Feature


The Lemonade Stand has spent years bringing you the best the fandom has to offer, and we are very excited to have the chance to offer you MORE. We've watched stories grow and develop from first post through COMPLETE in The Nursery, and now we're sharing previews of the stories that will soon be your new addiction. 

This week, the lovely pattyrose, author of the standout story The Cullen Legacy, shares some info on her exciting new story The Age of Innocence with us.



Summary - WWII: a time when unthinkable monstrosities brought about by cowards led rise to unimaginable bravery by everyday heroes. It was a time when young boys became men, and young women became everything. Our story begins on the eve of this era…the eve to the end of innocence.
Rated M. AH. E&B

Here’s the response of my beta, Michelle, when I first shared the outline for my new story with her: 
“Holy &@%$!#, I’m going to cry so much!”

Me: “Well, go get your Big Girl Panties on and pull ‘em up high!”

She did go get her Big Girl Panties. And she pulled them up high.

And she still cried.

(*shrugs*)

But she also laughed.

And she sighed.

And she gasped.

And she smiled.

Because a story that begins with the Second World War looming in the background can be heart-wrenching – yet it can be so much more than that. 

It’s a reminder that no matter the generation or what global events may be shaping our world, we remain the same. Regardless of what’s going on in the background, our personal experiences and resulting emotional reactions do not alter from generation to generation. We all experience the deepest devotion, the closest friendships, the greatest losses, the toughest conflicts, the most satisfying intimacies, and of course…the greatest of loves. 

Love, in its most fundamental form, always remains. And when you have the kind of love that will sustain you through the darkest of days, yes, there may still be tears, but there will also be so much more.

The Age of Innocence is a coming-of-age story set against the eve to the end of one generation’s natural, inborn innocence. Through the eyes of a young girl growing up as part of our “greatest generation,” we get glimpses of a nation struggling to prevail through the events occurring around them.

“Where are you going?” 

“Why, to the army air corps, of course. To fly a bomber - soon as I turn 18. Pop says he won’t sign for me before then, so I’ve got six more years to wait. I’ll watch Sandy for you ‘til then, Bella, but after that, you and your mutt are on your own.”

My mind was already wandering to what I’d do with Sandy after Edward left to fly his bombers. 

But then something hit me. 

“Why’d you call me Bella? No one calls me that.”

He gave me another shrug. “You’re too tiny for a name like Isabella.”

It was a time when the unspeakable horrors of monsters led rise to the bravery of heroes, and The Age of Innocence follows one young man as he grows to become one of those heroes.

Yet, at its heart, The Age of Innocence is a love story between two individuals whose lives are forever altered by the circumstances of their times… 

“Listen to me!” he demanded. “It was never what I thought you’d do to me! It’s what I’ve always known I’d do to you!”

“What will you do to me?” I cried, my voice shaking with the desperation I could no longer hold back.

He rushed me then, cradling my face in his warm hands, his emerald eyes locking me in their frenzied gaze.

“Bella, it’ll kill me to leave you,” he said hoarsely. “Yet I know that someday I’ll have to. I have to. But I love you. I think I’ve always loved you, in one form or another.” His voice broke then, and the pain in his eyes brought the tears I’d been struggling to hold back to the forefront of my own. “I love you, yet I can’t promise you I won’t go, and you deserve so much better than that because where will that leave you? Waiting to begin your life? You’re everything to me, Bella, and if you ask me to stay…I’ll stay, but the entire time, I’ll hate myself for being such a coward.” 

It’s the story of two young people whose most basic decisions are pre-determined by the state of the world around them…

He rested his forehead on mine. “I’m afraid,” he whispered, his soul bared to me so that I could see how truly terrified he was. “I’m not afraid of going out there, or of being in that dark sky littered with hundreds of other men hell-bent on shooting me down. I’m afraid of losing you, of being somewhere where I can’t hold you…kiss you…call you mine. I’m afraid of an oblivion that won’t include you. It’s all I’m afraid of.” 

I wrapped myself around him as tightly as possible, wishing with all my might that I could somehow give physical form to my love and transform it into a shield because if I could do that, then my shield would be impenetrable. 

“We’ll never lose each other, Edward. No matter what may ever come our way. You’ll come back to me because you hold my heart in your hands, and it’s your duty to bring it back. So you will return, and then I’ll always be yours, and you’ll always be mine.” 

The Age of Innocence will be told mainly from Bella’s POV, though there will be EPOV chapters later on in the story. It will update twice a week, Mondays and Thursdays, and will begin posting November 10th.

 So while you may want to go get on those Big Girl Panties, don’t forget to also grab an old-timer radio, some big band music, and be prepared to remember that true love has no set era. 

.

Don't forget to pop pattyrose on alert so you don't miss out!

I mean, I did take time away from writing, aside from two short projects, and I caught up on some reading, but this particular plot has been running around in my head for two years. It took three outlines to find exactly what I wanted. I’d take it out, poke at it, and stash it away again. It never seemed right.
This gave me a chance to put my love of action, The Walking Dead, and Resident Evil into play with my love of Edward and Bella. Though, it’s not a crossover.
Rain Must Fall will post every Sunday, starting tomorrow, the 12th. Though, I’ll most likely post extra chapters every now and then. Here’s a peek at the prologue that goes live tomorrow:

Hurricane Beatrice Sets Course for Disney World
Tropical Storm Beatrice has gained speed and strength as it sits off the west coast of Florida. It shows no signs of slowing down, and its path seems set to barrel through the Sunshine State.
As a precaution, state officials, upon the order of President Parker, have ordered military backup and security to be brought in to not only secure military bases but to lend a helping hand once the storm passes by. Troops from all over the country are being ordered into the tropical state.
The Red Cross is asking for volunteers in the medical and construction professions to lend a helping hand…

Category Five Storm Destroyed Most of Central Florida, Military Base in Crumbles…
Due to the sustaining hundred and fifty mile per hour winds, several beaches, towns, and ports along the west coast of Florida were destroyed. Hurricane Beatrice’s strength built over the course of two days, stirring up waves in the Gulf of Mexico that rivaled that of a tsunami. Tampa Bay—mainly Bayshore, Davis Island, and MacDill Air Force Base—are in crumbles. The military base is now partially under water, with very little hope of salvaging any of the buildings. Most aircraft were evacuated several days prior, and the ones unable to fly were damaged or underwater.
From Panama City, south to Port Charlotte, the damage is unimaginable. Power and phone line outtages are scattered throughout central Florida, and communication is down at Patrick Air Force Base on the eastern coast. While the Atlantic side of the state didn’t have any high waves or flooding, they did receive high winds and several tornados.
There are rumors of security breaches at Patrick AFB, but government officials say the base is under control…

Reports of Untreatable Flu-Like Symptoms Coming in from Japan, Great Britain, and U.S.…
The CDC—the Center for Disease Control—has issued a warning of a new global flu. It’s been reported that a new highly contagious virus is making its way around the world. The new strain has caused a few deaths in Japan, Great Britain, Brazil, and the U.S. Citizens are being warned to cancel any travel plans and to stock up on supplies.
“Staying home and out of the public is the best way to avoid catching this new influenza,” states a member of the CDC, who wishes to remain anonymous. “It spreads quickly. The symptoms are high fever, nausea, even death…”

Rumors of Virus Being a Leaked Bio-Weapon Causes Uproar in D.C.…
Thousands of protestors outside the White House fence were urged to go home. Martial law has been effect for several days in various cities around the country. Most communication has been lost, and power is out in the larger cities from New York to Los Angeles.
Congress, Homeland Security, and the Department of Defense refuse to answer for what has now been dubbed “The Zombie Apocalypse.” The massive flu virus is now rumored to be an escaped bio-weapon that had been housed at Patrick AFB.
Scientists have stated that the virus starts as flu-like symptoms, only to destroy the brain tissue. The result is something out of a horror movie. Most states have reported more deaths, fires, and these reanimated bodies, but since communication is down in over 85% of the country, there are no updates.
Looting, riots, and fires have all but destroyed our city of Seattle. Due to the fluctuating power issues, the Seattle Times cannot continue to publish. We wish everyone the best, and may God have mercy on our souls…
