    Summary

    When an impoverished artist who likes writing bad fanfiction gets the attention of the Chaos God Tzeentch, she is pulled into the Warhammer 40k universe. She embarks on a quest with her new friends to discover the secrets of the Warp itself so that she may return home. A grimdark take on the Wizard of Oz with a twist of black humor. This is not a genuine crossover, so I do not label it as such.

    Summary

    "Today, the world ends again. This is not the grand and cataclysmic death that stories and song can only dream of describing in all its awesome detail. This is not the shattering of the ways of life the planet Tilan and her people had come to know. This is not the catastrophic coming of the Gloom, which devastated the globe and enforced its cruel design upon her inhabitants some thousand years ago. This is a personal and quiet end, a world of one collapsing in a tragic spiral of self-destruction."

    Welcome to Etalyr, a grand continent in the world of Tilan. Etalyr is home to much trouble and turmoil, suffering and strife. But it is also home to heroes, noble souls willing to sacrifice everything make their world a better place for those they leave behind. The world, a mixture of high fantasy and dieselpunk influences, is as much a villainous force against these heroes as those who live within it. There are many who seek to make the best of the bad without concern for the fate of those around them. And there are those who delight in causing suffering to others. Danger lurks around every corner, as the invisible fog of the gloom weighs down upon everyone with equal measure.

    A place for my slowly growing collection of Warhammer 40K/30K fast-fiction (stories are 1,000 words or less). Will mostly focus on Space Marines (both Loyalist and Traitor).

    Enjoy!

    Aleksander Morozova is a petty warlord to most, but those closest to him, know his motivations and are rooting for him to overtake the throne. What better way to elevate his power than to recruit the country's most powerful Oracle by any means necessary?

    "Gravity gets us all in the end." With Lucien in control of his body, Molly has been dragged away from the Nein. Desperation leaves Caleb, Essek and the rest of the crew with few safe or reasonable options for getting him back. Luckily, they've always specialized in unsafe and unreasonable options.

In the final part of this sprawling Exandrian criminal underworld AU, even the good guys are bad guys, and the only way out is through.

    Summary

    Within the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war. War and the species that act in the plays of higher powers. One such power is the Emperor of Holy Terra, the Leader and Master of Mankind. Once a walking deity amongst man, he led humanity to great heights out of Old Night. Now however, he is a rotting carcass, interred within the Golden Throne, a life support machine that keeps a dying god from his rest, forced to live ONLY to suffer for the good of the people he cultivated and saved from the legions of his own sons at the hands of the Ruinous Powers. If, no, WHEN he dies, Holy Terra will burn, the Imperium will split and the laughter of thirsting gods will drown out the screams of the galaxy for in the 43rd Millenium, all gods decay and all heroes fall.

    Summary

    This AU will ask some deceivingly simple questions.
    What if Lorgar found not only the primordial truth within the depths of Cadia, but also a terrible secret the Old Ones kept from everyone?
    The thing that haunted their nightmares and kept them up at night?
    In the grand scheme of things the ruinous powers are infants, there are suns in the cosmos far older than them combined.
    What existed before them, what exists now and will exist after they are gone?
    These and many more will be answered in this AU that explores the beautiful and the macabre sides of the sea of souls.
    This series is a love letter to gothic romance and contemporary horror.

    Summary

    In his darkest moments, a Targaryen King decides to take a different path.

    Summary

    An Inquisitor from the Ordo Xenos has taken over a section of the Guard. Nothing unusual in some ways perhaps, but she has taken the highest functioning Ogrin in the entire group, and sent him on a risky mission by himself, with nothing but a personal vox-link to the Inquisitor herself. Can this Ogrin survive a lone encounter with the orks, even with an Inquisitor backing him up? To be honest, nobody really knows.

    Summary

    A loud and successful gentlemen's club had opened up in the city all too suddenly a few years back; a place where deviance grew and joy erupted. Unbeknownst to many, misery too brewed there. One particular night, a regular came by to pick up a special package — but his intentions may not be as carnal as just that.

    Summary

    He didn't want a body but she asked him to come.
    He left a scar when he burned her off his face...

    In the days of ancient Arlathan: Solas wanders the world as Mythal's loyal servant when the Evanuris give him an impossible task.
