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 drotuno, author of the brilliant story Masen Manor, shares some info on her upcoming story Rain Must Fall with us.
Rain Must Fall
Summary: It’s always been said that Mother Nature finds a way to assert her power. This time, she unleashed something that walls and fences couldn’t contain. Separated by an entire country, Edward and Bella must fight to stay alive in a world determined to destroy them, a world Edward must cross to get to his family, and a world where the dead don’t always stay dead. Rated M AH/ExB
I always say I’m going to take a break, but it never seems to happen. 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…

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…”

All Air Travel Temporarily Shuts Down to Contain Virus…
Airline officials called a press conference yesterday, stating that all flights in and out of the U.S. are canceled, with no date in sight as to when they will resume.
Military officials stated that due to the damage inflicted by Hurricane Beatrice and the recent influenza scare, the entire state of Florida is quarantined. No flights are allowed in or out of the state, and road blocks are stopping any traffic. People are being urged to stay home…

President Parker Succumbs to Virus, VP Now in Command…
Vice-President Hawkins was sworn in as Commander in Chief yesterday, due to the untimely death of President Parker. No statements or autopsy reports have been issued, but according to anonymous tips, President Parker was taken ill with the flu that has claimed the lives of reported thousands around the globe.
The Department of Defense has stated that contact with the governments of Japan, China, Great Britain, and Russia is down. According to satellite images, there are power outtages across the globe.
Religious groups, including the Vatican, have issued a world-wide statement that the end of days are near…

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…
