In Light


  • Violence
  • no, more violence than that
  • Gore – look, this is 40k, those in the front row may get wet, that’s all I’m saying
  • Bad language
  • Mindscrew, unreliable narrator


I might redraft the final chapter one day because it’s had two fewer drafts than the rest and frankly it shows. Also chapter 12 is twice as long as it should be, but that’s been filed under ‘won’t fix’ for the moment.

This stands at 87 567 words.

So in a departure from my previous stuff, this isn’t the tale of a video game.

This is a Warhammer 40,000 story centring upon the trials and tribulations of a novice of a tiny, little-known sub-order of the Adepta Sororitas, as her previously predictable and certain existence is overtaken by disaster and she doesn’t take a pace backwards quite fast enough.

My headcanon 40k is more like Abnett than Mitchell (What can I say? I read Necropolis in an impressionable state of mind) – ideally Bram Gaunt wouldn’t find the setting too unfamiliar, although I do like hanging lampshades on weird setting elements and there is probably going to be the odd easter-egg. Please hit me with rolled up newspapers for my Latin.

Please criticise: please do so somewhere where your comment will remain attached to the content that it is aimed at, so, on the chapter page itself.
