**Work in Progress**

 

**NOTICE** This story is a little dark. If you find yourself disgusted with it please stop reading. I do not want to upset anyone. But this is something I imagine Chaos would be about and do. It is not fun and games, but dark and insidiously evil.

This reads like an H. P. Lovecraft story.

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Still working on it. I need to rework the beginning and add more to it. I need to build the story up so when she wakes up giving birth it is a real shock. But thank you! :D

I liked it, fits 40k. It's grim dark in the right areas in my opinion. Keep going with this style.

Very well-written and outside the norm! Good job with this, I look forward to reading the expanded version of the piece.

"As he landed, he allowed the momentum to carry him into a roll forward, bullet impacts spattering him with fractured shale and sand.  He stood from the tumble and drew what was jokingly called his combat knife.  It was closer in form to a Kukri, stretched to the proportions of a machete.  In truth, a bastard of both, with the grace of neither, the razor keen edge smiled wickedly in the half-light of the canyon, the single molecule sharpness enough to shear body from soul."

Yup yup! I write because I have a very active imagination and love writing it out so I can keep them and recall the fantastic things I've made up in my mind. If I do end up doing that for a living though? I would be SO HAPPY! Getting to share these stories I've made up with others that might one day enjoy them and share them with their friends and children. It is a powerful feeling in my chest just to have you folks reading my short stories even if they are in the sorry state they are submitted in right now. Lol!

 

Thank you so much for the comment!
