    Ch.2 Pt.1: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/12385200/

    You use your radio, getting a report on the situation downstairs. The corrupt sisters had made it to the second level and were still coming. The Farseer was down there with them, helping to hold ground. She must have foreseen they would need assistance.

    You make your way over to the nearest corrupt sister, laying one hand gently on her head. She let out an enraged growl, gnashing her teeth as she struggled against her bonds.

    The very nature of her corruption filled your mind, layed out and displayed for you to see. The taint of chaos had been carefully woven, not only into her mind and flesh, but into her very spirit. It had seeped into every aspect of who she was, like pitch slathered over a fine cloth. Her will was only maintained by her faith, and even then...

    It would take you days... months... years... to fully unravel the horror that was consuming her, even with the assistance of other psykers. You couldn't imagine how hard it would be to resist being consumed by such deeply forged heresy.

    You pull your hand back as you feel the taint reaching out toward you.

    Filigree made her way over to you, the lash retracting back into her arm. "Unusual binding, isn't it? It's slow, but powerful."

    It was almost nothing like the binding between you and Filigree.

    "... It is," I say, leaning back and surveying the scene around me, "almost disconcertingly so. Why waste so much power and energy into so deeply entrenching the soul of a deamon so deeply into these women?
    And if these bonds are as strong as I think they are, why are they fighting so badly if that's the case?"

    "Emperor dman it!" Frack, I had expected there to be some mental foot hold, SOMETHING we could use to exploit to get inside the deamons defenses
    "What do you think Filigree- would it be worth it, interrogating these poor souls?"
    >> His Divine Power 11/18/10(Thu)10:25 No.12842771

    Filigree shook her head. "I would assume the strength of the corruption has to do with the sister's high tolerance for it, however, to use such power in such a short amount of time... I would not be surprised if it was the work of Slaanesh itself." She paused, looking around. "Something HAS changed though... With the sisters..."

    Many of the sororitas had gavitated away from the fallen ones, sitting along the far wall in clusters or simply pacing. Evangela and Tessa remained nearby, able to do so from their previous experience with Slaanesh, but that didn't stop them from looking uncomfortable. Elizabeth and Sonja were standing by the twins. The Canonesses were arguing in hushed voices, but neither one seemed to have much strength. Verity and Anna were in the corner, praying.

    Demoralized. The victory was an empty one and the stench of blood, sweat, and adrenaline were still heavy in the air. They must...

    You let your train of thought go, realization flooding you. Verity and Anna were praying... Verity and Anna were the ONLY ones praying... And during the battle, you didn't hear any litanies being shouted. No songs of praise sung. Nothing that you normally hear when the sisters purge heretics.

    It was unlikely that they were being possessed, or losing their faith, but over time, a single seed of doubt can choke even the most beautiful of gardens if left to its own devices.

    After checking the remaining three fallen sisters to see if I can’t gleam something, anything, about their condition and possible weaknesses, I gather Filigree.
    "Come on, this headache isn't going anywhere soon." I head over to the remains of Tybalt, and check to see if any of his systems are still salvageble. I'm not really sure what to say at thi point- "Good boy," seems cliche and trite. Instead I just run my hands over his chasis, before getting up abruptly to turn to Evangela and Tessa
    “How are you two holding up?”
    I jerk a thumb in the direction of Anna and Verity. “What prayers are those? I don’t recognize them.”
    >> His Divine Power 11/18/10(Thu)12:32 No.12843604

    The other three sisters merely sit there, laughing at nothing or mumbling to themselves.

    Filigree follows you as you make your way over to Tybalt. The cyber mastiff's memory core was slightly damaged, but the data is probably salvageable. The black box containing all of his primary systems was undamaged, however.

    You gently gather the undamaged parts, carrying them to the far side of the room, away from the chasis.

    You swiftly approach the Living Saint and Celestian and ask your question.

    Evangela looks up at the two in the corner, a little numb. "Oh... That is Palma ut Patronus Sanctus. Glory to the Patron Saint. It's more of a nursery rhyme than an actual prayer. It is taught to sororitas novices to help them follow and understand the basis of their vows. It's not very elegant, however. It is almost never spoken outside of the Sororitas for this reason. Common people expect the Daughters of the Emperor to be eloquent and fierce in prayer. Not to recite a child's poem."

    Tessa smiled faintly at the Saint. "Yeah... But you know that we all still recite it Evangela. For its simplicity, it stirs our souls with its reminder of innocent times as a novice. It has no place in battle nor is it meant to bring forth our fury. Yet... I find myself reciting it in my mind, even when my lips speak the litanies and prayers of battle."

    The sisters look at each other for a moment before Tessa takes a deep breath, reciting the first line, Evangela joining her after a word or two...

    "Sanctus contego nos, quod contego nostrum fides...
    To be Sisters in arms, shoulder to shoulder. With fire and shell, we praise Him.

    Permissum nos sto procerus in vultus of malum...
    To heal and tend to the pious and noble. With gentleness, we cure the blight.

    Servo nostrum mens ex corruptio...
    To study and examine what others cannot. With wills of steel, we learn.

    Tribuo nos os video vidi visum obscurum...
    To travel the stars, and weed out corruption. With grace, we keep the order.

    Nostrum pectus pectoris es loricatus per nostrum fides...
    To teach by example or by slate and chalk. With care and discipline, we will show young souls the light.

    Palma ut Patronus Sanctus!
    For you led us here
    to be servants
    and martyrs
    for the God-Emperor

    "Evangela," I ask, "do you think you could help me? Right now, everyone in this room is on edge- I can hardly blame them, after having to deal with, well, Mirial and these possesed sisters. Why don't you and Tessa lead them in the Palma ut Patronus Sanctus- help remind them that, no matter what, they stand for the divine grace and holy fury."

    Where were the battle songs and praises to the emperor? The rites of the fallen? The chants of purification?
    The fight with the possesed sisters was not a good fight, but we should honor their memory nonetheless."

    You attempt to psykicly boost the volume of the prayer, but you find your power ineffective, though you could feel it working through you.

    Regardless of the lack of volume, the sisters around them slowly joined in, the quiet murmur spreading from one sister to another the entire room calming slowly.

    The prayer was repeated several times, the sisters standing in silence when they finished, their hands clutched in front of them or their faces raised upward.

    A quiet voice came from behind you. "A single spark can burn down even the mightiest of trees." It was Rodwen. The hem of her robe was badly ripped and soaked in blood. "You are wise, inquisitor. We need the faith and resolve of the Sisters to triumph here. If we survive this, I would be honored to have you accompany me to the Black Library."

    I look her up and down
    "So, I guess the rest of the possesed sisters have been cleared out then? And is that your blood? Despite what you say about the primitiveness of humanity, Verity here is good at patching up wounds."

    "Farseer. Dramatic and cryptic as ever, I see." I nod in the direction of an empty corner and shoo Filigree off to help Varity with the wounded. As bad as being seen conversing pleasantly with a Xeno is, I don't think the Sisters response would be any better if they overheard our conversation.
    "I thank you for your invitation- it's an honor few have been given, and many sought after.
    However, I think we both now that the odds of me coming out of this are extremely slim. Which is why I must ask a further boon from you-"
    I reach my tobacco case and remove a heavily gilted cigar holder
    "Here, take this." I unscrew the top part of the holder, revealing the minature electronics underneath, "It's a elect-key holding the clearance codes to my data-vaults and storage djinns. If I bite it in the coming battle, I'll need to make sure my successor has access to all of my information. When you make good your escape- don't look at me like that, you're an eldar, you always have an escape plan- make sure it ends up in the hands of my acolytes, some way or another."

    Rodwen hesitates before taking the case, removing the last cigar from it as she did and handing it to you. "Thank you Inquisitor. I'll be sure to return this if you make it... I honestly hope you do. It is rare that I meet a mon-keigh I do not mind being around."

    Evangela had moved to the chaos sisters and knelt in front of them, the harlots unable to meet her eyes. Tessa watched from afar.

    Verity and Anna had moved back over to the twins. It looked like the injured one was doing better. She was sitting up, her twin giving her some water. Whatever Verity had done seemed to be working.

    Filigree kept her distance, not wanting to get near Anna.

    Elizabeth and Sonja were fussing over Tybalt, trying to figure out if they could fix him, or at least create something temporary, despite the massive damage.

    "Thank you, Rowdan- this means a lot to me."
    I take the cigar offered and set it firmly between my teeth before taking out a lighter from my person. After a few clicks, I realize that the fluids have all drained out, and settle with lighting it through a small electric spark from my fingertips. Stings like a bitch- but worth it.
    I watch Sonja and Elizabeth somewhat warily as they fool around with Tybalts body. Evangela peaks my interest. I'm hoping that she isn't going to execute the possessed sisters.
    I gesture for the farseer to walk and talk, picking up the lonely Filigree along the way as we head towards where I last saw the bickering cannonesses

    Rodwen nods slowly, looking thoughtful. "The universe does seem to be going mad, does it not?" She let out a breath, her stare distant. "I do not know what to make of these... abominations. I have participated in this war long enough to know the inner strength of these battle sisters from those we have fought and captured. Every interrogation attempt failed and we had to keep them separate or they would kill each other rather than remain captured. After the first several attempts, we stopped taking them alive altogether, as there was no point. Such a strong warrior spirit earns the respect of the Biel-Tan. I cannot imagine what force it had to take to tear their minds asunder such as this."

    The chaos sister said something inaudible, the color draining out of Evangela's face, her forefinger twitching a bit, though she had no gun. She swallowed hard, looking around, her eyes meeting yours. She was angry.

    Seems likely. Here's to hoping the living saint doesn't start shouting. Or come over for that matter, I don't see the farseer being impressed.

    Steeling myself for the worst, I head over to evangela to find out what, precisely, the choas sister had said, to get her so angry.
    >> His Divine Power 11/19/10(Fri)14:17 No.12855848

    The Saint faltered. "I have no idea what your talking about, but that doesn't matter right now. She stands quickly, her divine aura pressing heavily on you. "You will conclude your business with these sisters now. I will not tolerate leaving them here in torment. I have been in a similar position before.

    We're a biomancer. Can't we put them into a coma until the battle is over and then store them in stasis fields until we have a found a way to cure them? I'd hate to see all our effort go to waste.
    On the other hand, she's the saint. Can't she use her Emperor give abilities to help them. Reach out to their individual faith and guide them through the darkness in their minds?

    Why is it always railroading when it turns out that we can't do exactly what we want? If someone wanted to try and ressurect the emperor and we were told that we can't do it, would you view that as railroading?

    Don't give me that crap about how you're waiting for the sweet embrace of death, to better feel the eternal pleasures of the warp.
    You're alive now, and living is the ultimate addiction- can't you feel it? You tell yourselves that you can stop anytime you want, but one last breath is never enough, is it? The feel of a cool breeze on your skin, the subtle scent of sweat, the feel of cloth against your skin? Nothing in the immaterium can compare to living- it's why you bastiches are so eager to get your claws into this domain.
    I'm not going to threaten you with death if you don't leave these bodies- oh no, that's more the Sisters style. I realize that even if living flesh is a great addiction, you're willing to settle with a runners up prize.
    Instead, I'm going to make sure that you live.
    I'll make sure that you live, in nothingness.
    Devoid of all sense, of all bereft of even the sweet tang of pain.
    Pitch blackness constantly, no sound, no light, no color, no hope, not even a faint connection to the warp, just an eternity of nothingness.
    It wouldn't be easy- sensory deprivation tanks, nerve destruction, immaterium hexes- but I am dead serious when I say that I can do it, and that I will do it, if only to spite you.

    The four harlots look at you, their eyes huge. One Struggles fruitlessly, falling over onto her side, two more struggle for words. Only the last one manages to maintain some form of composure.

    "You wouldn't do that to us..." You doubted it was using anything remotely similar to the sister's actual voice. "All it would take is one slip of the tongue, and the saint here would know your secret. We can sense our kin." It bared its filed teeth. "But you are correct in your words. We cannot be removed so easily. A compromise then since seduction seems to have no affect on you..." It glances in Filigree's direction. "I release my grip on this one's soul. I'd rather the embrace of the warp than to live in silence."

    You reach your mind out and look upon the harlot with witchkin sight. Immediately the world was drenched in energy. The daemon retracted its claws from her soul.

    "I had fun." It let out a short laugh. "I'll get a new body when you fail and this world is taken by the warp."

    The daemon only smirks in response, letting its host's head drop forward. The possessed sister drew in a sharp breath, and jerked back, screaming fearfully in high gothic. She struggled against her bonds, thrashing far harder than the daemon did.

    Many of the sisters rushed over to see what was amiss. Of those that came, several reached for their weapons. They didn't get a chance to draw, her wild thrashing freeing her wrists.

    She lunged at the nearest sister who held up her close combat weapon defensively, the possessed girl grabbing the bolt pistol off of her belt, putting it to her temple and firing.

    You expected her head to explode. You didn't expect the gun to jam. She slowly drew the pistol away from her head, falling to her knees, looking as if she may be sick.

    The sisters around you looked like they might give her a new bolt pistol, or just shoot her themselves.

    Evangela approached her slowly, her movements deliberate as she took the bolt pistol from her and unjammed it. "The inquisitor is correct. You are among your comrades in arms. There is nothing to fear."

    She offered the bolt pistol to her, handle first, managing to hold steady. "If you wish to end your life now, there is no shame in it. You have done your duty many times over. If you wish. I will grant you the emperor's peace if you do not feel you have the strength. But if you could off up any information that may help..."

    The sister shook her head, sitting up and closing her eyes. Evangela wasted no time, turning the gun around and firing a single round between her eyes, whispering a litany.

    She turned to the other two, her expression hardening. The Harlots looked tense, glancing at each other and back at the sisters.

    The daemon chuckles, relinquishing control to the sister, the other two following suit. The moment the sisters regain control they gasp, struggling a little, but are far calmer than the first.

    They settle after several moments, their eyes downcast.

    Step closer to the sisters.
    "It's alright. You have braved torments unimaginable to almost everybody in the Imperium."
    Kneel to to get our eyes on level with theirs.
    "You survived being tortured by the followers of the dark gods, still sound in mind and resisting their empty promises. There's nothing to be ashamed of."
    Take a deep breath.
    " I think I can understand why you might want to end your life but consider this: The exalted martyr has shown incredibly abilites in removing the influence of the warp - if you were to remain strong in faith until she arrives, I'm sure she will be able to find a way out of this. Helping you continue doing his will, stronger for what you have endured."
    Call Tessa over.
    "Tessa, you are the one closest to Esme on this planet. Tell me. If she has even the slightest chance to do so, she would help these sisters, right? She would brave the warp to wrest the control of their bodies from chaos, am I not correct?"

    Tessa slowly nodded, biting her lower lip. "Yes but... Even after what I went through, though meager by comparison, I wished for my life to end. I still wished it even after purification. Even after these months I still carry the remains of the mark of the Lord of Excess. If not for my understanding of my greater role, I would have sought the emperor's peace. It is the only release from their torment."

    Evangela stepped forward, checking the ammunition in the bolt pistol. She took aim and fired, the first spasming and falling limp.

    As Evangela approached the second, the one nearest you looked up, her mouth opening and closing several times. "Inquisitor..." You had to strain to hear her. "Beware the sting... and the barbs... that is what was our undoing... Forgive me, but that is all I can remember."

    The second shot rang out and Evangela approached the last, the tension draining out of the possessed sister's features.

    "So you're taking the easy way out, huh?
    If I had decided to do so, your soul would currently be tortured in the warp for all eternity. This world would probably have already fallen to chaos.
    Why should every soldier in the guard not simply end himself with his lasgun instead of a horrible death at the hands of Chaos, Orks, Necrons, Tau, Eldar or whatever monstrosity the universe has chosen to test our resolve with that day?
    The Imperium has endured for 10000 years. Besieged by aliens and monsters, attacked from within by heretics and rebels. Why bother fighting when all we need is to kill ourselves and be over with it? Why does the divine Godemperor still sit on his golden throne, protecting mankind even after being betrayed by his own sons?"
    I think we're out of cigars but I'm pretty sure, being the smart inquisitor we are that we have hidden some lho-sticks away for such situations. Light one.
    "I have to admit, I haven't got the slightest clue. But if the Emperor is willing to sacrifice himself, by his very nature infinitely better than each of us could ever hope to be, for the continued existance of man... then that is good enough for me.

    smooth, that will atagonise the sisters who are still alive. We are in no position to judge, as we have not been possessed. Can you really blame them for taking this course of action? The sisters may have control at the moment, but for all we know, the daemons can reassert control, as and when they want.

    In my opinion they are. They gets captured by chaos, a big no-no for every sister. The daemonic corruptions wasn't really their fault. We save them from a fate worse than death and they just quit. It might not be pleasant to be in her shoes but that's the deal 99% of all subjects in the imperium get.

    "I am not worthy of even a name as I am now. In life, however, I was known as Veteran Sister Superior Caramel, Seraphim of The Order of the Argent Shroud." She was still as her bonds were cut, listening you quietly. "You're words are both kind and empowering, Inquisitor. I would like nothing more than to be granted the Emperor's peace but if you have a task for me, I shall complete it without fail and without hesitation or fear. Send me to my martyrdom, Inquisitor, if you'll have me. I do not know how long the daemon will stay in submission."

    she bows her head slightly as you raise her hand, though you are not sure if it is out of shame or thanks. She cannot stop herself from glancing at Filigree several times who, for some reason, chose this moment to be clingy.

    "What would you have me do, Inquisitor?"

    Your response was inturrupted by a loud bang on the door. The posessed seraphim had distracted you from the growing sounds of battle coming from downstairs. The door opened, a sister with a helmet and badly bleeding leg stumbled in, falling to the ground. Verity rushed to her, quickly working to remove her power armor. "They've taken the first floor but we're holding the second..."

    "By the Emperor... so many of our battle sisters..." Verity injected a seditive quickly, the battle sister growing woozy. "How in the.. name of... of the 6 great saints... did... did they..." She fell back, out cold, several hospitaller working to get her on a stretcher. Even from your distance you could see white, jagged bone protruding out of her leg.

    We should ask the sister how long she thinks she's been possessed, i.e. the date when she was taken. That way we could work out who the possessed sisters are if we can match that against any known battles, or events where sisters went missing.
    I don't think it is a lash of torment.
    Possibly a daemon tha we have not seen yet, or it may in fact be metaphorical. It needs context.

    The tainted sister is the first to respond, the farseer's brow furrowed in thought. "I remember... something. It may have been a nightmare rather than an actual event. The daemon..." She cleared her throat. "I recall a squad that was taken. They were testing something. They infected a single sister, brutally, I might add, and left her with the other sisters. She did not show symptoms at first and, as expected, the others attempted to comfort her. Through the contact it caused a mass infection of the entire squad, but the potential for infection through contact didn't seem to last long. I can not remember much else."

    Filigree shook her head. "They were dry and icky... I'm hungry Quizzy..." She was getting a little two close and clingy for comfort.

    You ask the other canonesses for food, but Florencia brushes you off. Galatea was biting her lip, looking like she was about to kill Filigree. "No... I don't..."

    Sister Caramel looked uncomfortable. "Inquisitor. I am not fit to ever wear the holy armor of the sororitas again...Several seals on my armor will be sufficient. I wish only to finish my duty and be granted my peace... I have served the emperor faithfully. I want to rest..."

    "Look at this armor- it's been shot to hell and back. You can't very well serve the Emperor if you start bleeding from your femoral artery due to shrapnel, now can you?"

    If worse comes to worse, similar threats to those that we used on the daemons possessing the sisters could be an idea. But that should probably be saved for a last resort.

    As for what we do in the mean time with regards to her, I have no idea to be honest. The reward reward punishment system is breaking down a bit it seems.

    Filigree continued to paw at you until you mentioned the time-out. Almost instantly she shut up, letting go slowly, trying to look small. She is the first to reply when you speak about the infection. "No... Something like that would probably be psychic, not viral. A virus would be more of The Lord of Decay's calling card."

    You make a sharp remark about saving Caramel.

    Sister Caramel bows deeply, her voice cracking as she spoke. "Forgive any trouble I caused you Inquisitor. What you have done for me can never be repaid with any simple deed that I may do. My desire to rest spawns from my own greed, I must admit, and I thank you for so willingly granting my former squad the that small mercy... We do not deserve such, and if you wish I will serve their penance as well as my own. I am not worthy of even Repentia. If my life and any deeds I complete this day is not enough I will slave for the rest of my natural days if that is what it takes to serve my penance."

    The look on the nearby sisters' faces said enough to be cautious about your next words.

    "It is pointless to throw your life away in this situation. We do not have the luxury of being able to afford it. We do not know how long it will take for us to be relieved. We do not know if we ever will be relieved. Even if we die in the process, I intend to make the enemy pay dearly for every inch of ground they take and I intend for us to hold out for as long as it is physically possible for us to do so. But to do this I need every able bodied sister that we have available, including you. It is not that you owe me pennance of any kind, we simply cannot afford for anyone to throw their lives away. If when this is over you still feel the same way, I will not stop you. But right now, I need you."

    "Sister Caramel (What kind of name is Caramel anyway?)- I am not a slave driver, whatever my acolytes may tell you aside. I did not save you so because I think you need to spend the rest of your life in penance for your immortal soul- I saved you BECAUSE you have a soul. It's my job- as the left hand of the Emperor I am entrusted to do what actions I deem necessary to preserve the integrity of the Imperium and the souls thereof. Sometimes that means cleansing entire planets with burning flame, damning a hundred thousand to save an entire system. Sometimes that means working with xenos, as our good friend Farseer Rowden can attest, or other, less savory peoples. (sideways glance at Filigree). What it means for me, though, is that I utilize all the tools I have at my disposal- not using them could be what costs uncounted millions their lives, their sanity, or their souls.
    I helped you regain your soul and your freedom because I think you can be useful- no more, no less. What you do with it now is rather out of my hands.
    Just know that, by fighting today- you’ll be helping save more human souls then there are stars in the night sky.
    I’m not exactly a confessor- but I’d think that’d be penance enough.”

    that other daemonette a few threads ago that Filigree talked to was named after the art of chineese paper cutting.

    Just thought it might have something to do with turning the word "crave" into a last name. He who craves or something like that.

    early 13c., cravant, perhaps from O.Fr. crevante "defeated," pp. of cravanter "to strike doen, to fall down," from L. crepare "to crack, creak." Sense affected by crave and moved from "defeated" to "cowardly" (c.1400) perhaps via intermediary sense of "confess oneself defeated."

    O.E. crafian "ask, implore, demand by right," from N.Gmc. *krabojan (cf. O.N. krefja "to demand," Dan. kræve, Swed. kräva); perhaps related to craft in its base sense of "power." Current sense "to long for" is c.1400, probably through intermediate meaning "to ask very earnestly" (c.1300). Related: Craved; craving.

    The sister swallowed hard, nodding. "I understand inquisitor... Forgive me for questioning you... You're right, I can do more good if I live at this moment."

    You jump as another crash comes from the nearby hallway, the sound of bolter fire coming closer. Filigree stops fidgeting and leaned forward, head tilted to the side as she listened. "This is getting interesting... Heh..."

    Florencia and many of the other sisters glanced at Filigree, not sure what to make of it. The sisters aware of Filigree's true nature ignored her or looked away in disgust.

    Caramel glanced her direction. "Curiosity?"



    The door burst open again and several sisters backed into the room, followed by what remained of the eldar forces, and then more sisters.

    "They've taken the second floor!"

    "They'll be here at any minute!"
