Three stories, One meaning
As I do, One day i was watching a lovely cartoon called Superman Doomsday. It reaches its climatic ending where superman ultimately ends up fighting a not so perfect clone of himself. An imposter who had taken his place after the general public had assumed his previous demise.
Now in this clash, Lois lane stands on the ground while they fight and fly, at one moment the supermen collied causing shockwaves radiate from them, knocking shards of glass from sky scrapers.
As everyone else darts for their life, Lois lane remains still underneath, completely focussed on the battle, the shards of glass rain down upon her but she does not move, she does not budge, she does not blink and she does not stop watching. Even when it cuts her skin, she stands firm.
She is willing to see things through to the end, regardless of how she feels or fairs in the end.

The rain is a play on words of Reign as I believe as parents our jobs are to be the present servants to the future kings of this existence. So it worked.
So this in a case is not necessarily a website for you or for me, but for my yet to be conceived offspring to find one day. Hopefully they can relate to their biological doner as a person and it helps inspire them do whatever they wish to in their lives.
Since I fell mostly effeminate on the net, I use the guise November rain but I soon found out this was a Guns n Rose song (purely coincidental). in order to mask my ignorance, the term has been draped in a tongue that is foreign yet familliar enough to make one think ‘oooo’
so there you have it.
