Introducing... The newest member of The League of Extraordinary Twilighters!




Everyone, meet Rain. Rain, meet everyone. We're super excited Rain is joining our team! Let me tell you something about our girl, Rain. Her Twilight obsession puts the rest of us to shame. She had a Twilight party with all her local Twi-buddies to celebrate the DVD release like a lot of us did. But Rain had her hair cut and colored to match Alice just for the party! Is that dedication, or what?





I realize it might be hard for everyone to get used to a new member of the League, so I wanted to let you know a bit about myself and how I came to love (obsess over) Twilight. Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Rain Storm.

I first read the Twilight series last August. And then I read it again. And I've now read it more times than I can count (although I often skip New Moon). My toddler-aged son knows the book cover for Twilight, and can also recognize Rob & Kristen in any photo. My husband has accepted that whenever I have the chance, I will be reading Twilight, or listening to the soundtrack, or watching the movie (while the house quickly degenerates into a hot mess).

Basically, I'm Team-Edward, completely Robsessed, have a soft spot for Emmett (a very soft spot), and love to talk Twilight with the girls on the League. I'm so excited that they asked me to join them and live out my dream of becoming a superhero. If I can't be a vampire, then being a superhero is the next best thing.






No, Rain, the next best thing to being a vampire is being a superhero who gets a pass from their husband to get *carnal* with a vampire. Having said that, are you really hung up on your name because I was kinda thinking Rain Hale. Get it? Hale/Hail = Rain. Hello? Um... *crickets*






Uh, yeah Spank, we "got" it.










We are all super excited to welcome you Rain into our dojo, but what's this about not being able to be a vampire? I'm not scoopin' what you're poopin'. You CAN be a vampire. I thought you said you were obsessed with Twilight the books/movie. If that's really true then you would know that you can be a vampire. What Carlisle did was very difficult, but he did it with Edward, and then with his wife Esme. You just need to make sure you pick the right one to change you. If you picked Edward, well, there would be conditions. And I'm afraid he won't be able to stop. But what this really comes down to is your obviously weak knowledge of Twilight/vampires. League, did we make the right choice?






Just make sure before you change you are having a REALLY good hair day because you're kinda stuck with it ... for eternity. And let's all have a moment of silence for Jasper's hair. *bowed head*








And poor Rosalie, she's stuck forever with a Jennifer Lopez bubble butt.









What, Spider... you have a thing against girls with big butts? Because I thought you liked my butt. *wink*

That is all (riiight).


Don't mess (I will kill you).

Ninja Fanpire said...

So unfair Lady Hale. I was totally typing my comment before yours, it just took longer to post because it had more of teh words.

Rachel said...

Welcome Rain Storm! I do kind of agree with @ Ninja Fanpire...Your name is a little cheesy! However, since you're Robsessed like I am, I'll let it slide :) WELCOME!!

Mystify Me said...

Welcome Rain!

Johanna (Twilightish) said...

Welcome Rain! Very nice to meet you and looking forward to reading your insights on our beloved Twilight and Rob. You may/may not know me on twitter as @Twilightish. *shakes your hand*

I somehow missed from Meadow's last post that it was really her last post. I thought she was stepping down from sharing fanfic, not from the league.

Anyways, Meadow, if you are reading this, I'm sorry I didn't get to properly say goodbye and I wish you the best. I do hope you will come by once in a while and drop a comment here and there. I will truly miss you.

Johanna (Twilightish) said...

Hey we need to get Rain on twitter too, unless she's already there and I'm just slow...which is VERY possible ;)

Spank Ransom said...

Hey everyone. Spank overslept so I am outside making myself even later reading all you kind words toward Meadow ans Rain. For those of you who may be thinkink ill toward her name it has great significance to those of us who go into a frenzy when a certain vampire is getting wet. For those who think the suggestion of Hale was to allude to our dear Lady Hale she is not RainM lady Hale and her friends do have a blog you should visit if you havenKt already. Okay time to get dressed for work. *sigh* but I will check in later when not pecking away on my phone. ;) love you guys...

Spider Monkey said...

@Beesue - Yes, thanks!

So, Rain, as the waitress once asked; "the girls wanna know?"

What's you take on the little piss ant KS?

@Ninja - it's not wise to threaten the league. I agree w/Spank, Rain Storm is a perfect fit w/the rest of ours. Don't you agree that Spider Monkey is pretty silly too? And Spank?? Don't get me going on that name. :)

@ALL: The League is stoked about the new member and you will soon see why we love Rain! You should know that in my real world rain is my favorite weather, really. And after the movie... rain drops falling on those lips. Ugh. I seriously hope that typing her name won't bring me to that happy place so much that I want to jump her! :)

Lady Hale said...

@Spank...people were thinking that I was Rain?!?! Lol

But thank you for the endorsement of our humble little TwiBlog!

Btw...Rain...I think the name rocks!! What's a superhero without the slightly cheesey, kinda cliche name, right?!?!

Rain Storm said...

Okay, the girls want to know... I am a bit mixed in my feelings about KStew, but mainly she drives me crazy. Every now and then she says or does something to make me laugh and think about liking her, but her pissy attitude and poor fashion sense usually remind me how I truly feel.

@Lady Hale - thank you for loving my name. I share Spider's affection for raindrops falling on a certain set of lips. I also love a good thunderstorm and have recently taught my child that thunder means vampires are playing baseball. Teaching him right.

@All - thank you so much for the warm welcome! I can't wait to get to know you all better!

reelhimin.now said...

Hello Rain! Love ur avatar!

I think u visit my residence quite often - I feel I know you QUITE well.

But hey girls, we're setting a record here in Washington. 30 days w/o rain! But now I know we're u've been! So I'm not worried anymore..... *snicker*

@Spider, beesue
should we tell rain about kstewpid? hmm. kinda like piss ant? ok ok.

Naked Rob Naked Rob!

Spider Monkey said...

@reelhimin.now - it's probably safe to say that Rain knows about kstewpid! I think...

Jen said...

Welcome Rain!
The cheesiness of your name doesn't matter to me, you are Team Edward, Robsessed and share my feelings about KStew.. you can do no wrong in my book.

Lady Hale said...

@Rain...I know how you feel about KStewpid...except I lean towards the near constant loathing side of things.

As for teaching your kid that thunder means Vampire Baseball...you're my new hero! But then again, considering who my other heroes are, maybe you don't want to be regarded as such...oh well! Welcome again!

duchess said...

Welcome Rain Storm... your name reminds me of the baseball scene...good start...score one for you ;)

fragilelittlehuman said...

Welcome Rain! Looking forward to reading your musings. So glad you're not a KStew fan, too *happy dance*

Anonymous said...

Welcome Rain! I don't mind the name... at least you're lucky enough to get one! :)

Gina said...

Welcome Rain! I cant wait to hear your take on all of the leagues great topics. Look forward to getting to know you. Although, I feel like we may know you a bit already as a different name.... hmmmm... may have to think on that.... ;)
Anyways, looking foward to it!

leslie said...

Welcome Rain! We're so glad that you've joined the League and we're looking forward to your posts and hope to see you on Facebook and Twitter.

Just as @Twilightish said, Meadow, we're sorry that we didn't get to say our good-byes. We hope that you'll pop in once in awhile to comment. You'll be missed. :(

reelhimin.now said...

@Rain
Oh so glad that you are on the i'm not so sure about the kstewpid train...Yes sometimes for the love of Robward, I will say ok robsten *cringe* as long as he's happy *rolls eyes* but if she hurts him *claws and pitchforks* just saying

I look foward to getting to know you!

reelhimin.now from ravishim.team!

wink @spider!

Sylvia J. said...

Rain, Rain...go AWAY! Seems like you might need to brush up on your Twilight knowledge..."can't become a vampire"...sheesh! At least you're Team Edward. That is one good thing in your favor. Ok..."RAIN"...bring it on!

JETT said...

Welcome Rain! Looking forward to reading your take on the League posts.

-JETT

Spider Monkey said...

@Ginger - I'm more of a foot girl! You should know that by now! ;)

Spank Ransom said...

Hey guys -- so I know you are going to forgive my typo-filled message this morning. I was typing on my phone. ;)

I wanted to write again and thank you for so warmly welcoming our dear friend Rain. We have known her long before Rob Pattinson was anything more than the dude who got killed by Voldemort so it was such a relief when she quickly stepped up to the plate to join our League.

We have been working hard at writing new posts and are not surprised at how well we are grooving given how we are all already kindred spirits and good friends.

I hope that each of you will continue to feel the familiarity that we have with each other and will, in time, regard Rain as a true blue Twi-Friend.

And it's true that she dyed her hair and cut it for her Twilight party. The actors weren't even that committed *silly wigs*

Oh and about me thinking that someone thought that @LadyHale was Rain Storm, I have no idea what I read that led me to think that. I blame it on being up for 15 seconds and without caffeine. ;)

Love you guys...

Spank <3

Toeknee said...

Awww...will definately miss Meadow but welcome Rain! I like the name makes me think of Rob all wet and hot and.....*wipes drool from mouth*

Oh sorry what was I saying? :P

Anyways glad to have you here and if you hate Kstew as much as I do...you are awesome!

katarinas mama said...

Okay, Spank...v v cute, I'm with you and the Rain Hale! LOLz.

Welcome Rain. I can hardly wait to see more of you...I would've said something about "dropping" but that would've been too much of a pun even for me and Spank. *grins*

Brenda Jean said...

Geesh, late again, and just reading this. I was SO confused in the newer posts and thought someone had snuck in here-- NOW I understand and WELCOME. Since you like to skip New Moon, Rain, I'm guessing you call Jacob a dog and wish Edward would eat him. I love Edward, but alas I have a softspot for all the werewolves but Sam, so please don't hate me:)
