    Waking up is so hard to do, but you manage to force yourself alert. You just had the worst nightmare possible. What the hell did you that made you dream up that? No more deep-fried grox before sleep, that’s for sure. The sun bursts in through the window in your room, illuminating it so brightly that you needn’t bother with turning on the light. You peer out the window, and gaze upon lush verdant fields of crops, and a sparkling lake on the horizon. The suns rises in the sky, and with almost no clouds visible, the day promises to be wonderful.

    You leisurely stroll downstairs, the smell of mom’s homemade pancakes filling your nostrils and makes your mouth salivate. Something shifts in your head. A memory, that seems from a time very long ago. Still there, but hidden. Then you remember a part of your dream. A thousands laughing mouths, each malevolent maw hungry for you. You almost trip over yourself going down the stairs. Man, that was one fucked up dream. Yeah, a dream…

    You enter the kitchen, not even bothering to look at your family as you home in on the food before you. Your so hungry, it seems like you haven’t eaten in days. Mom hands you plate already made, as if she knew exactly what you were going to get. She doe, because you get the same thing every time you can. Pancakes with syrup, bacon, grox links, and some scrambled eggs. She even made a smiley face with some whip cream, something Mom hasn’t done for a while. You dig into the meal, barely baying attention to Dad talking about the Henderson’s new calf. Something about buying sending them a congratulation card or something, you don’t know.
    >> GM !!0fEYB5hrFn3 08/04/10(Wed)23:08 No.11530876
    Breakfast finishes up, and Mom takes your plate from you to the dish washer. The phone rings, and your little brother answers it. He says its Jimmy, asking if you and Eve were going to join him at the lake today. Jimmy? An image comes unbidden into your head. It’s Jimmy, in a soldier’s uniform. It looks like he’s finally gotten to join the Imperial Army finally, just like he wanted to. But something’s wrong. His eyes are gone, and there blood all over his face. There’s a hole in his head and- you shot Jimmy. The reason Jimmy has a hole in his head is because you shot Jimmy. Your body freezes, seizing up. Your little brother looks at you funny, and Mom asks if your alright. A moment latter you unfreeze, trying to remain calm and tell them your fine. Mom gives you a worried look, while your little brother calls you a spaz. You tell your little brother tell him sure, and to bring the- wait, who’s Eve? You don’t remember anyone named Eve

    What do you do?

    Who the hell is Eve, you mentally ask yourself. Your rake your mind for the answer, but find nothing. Then, for the merest of moments, a glimmer of memory. A flash of gold and white, and piercing blue fills your mind for barely a second. Why can’t you remember? Something is missing, something is wrong. First the dream, then memories that can’t be real, and now you can’t remember something. It seems so important, and yet its gone. Like something is hiding it from you. Why? You turn to your little brother, and ask him who’s Eve. He gives you a confused look at first, then smirks and says while making lovely dovey motions and kissy faces, “Eve, oh she’s no one, just your special person.” Little brat, you’d hit him if he wasn’t helping.

    You dash upstairs to you bathroom, alarmed. Why can’t you remember her. You wash you face with water you wake you up, fear seizing you. Then, you remember something from your dream. A voice, horribly cruel and evil. “I always win.” You grip the sink tightly, and recite prayers from church, asking for God’s protection. Something seems wrong. There’s something…wrong in the room.

    You look up into the mirror above the sink. Its gone pure black, and in the middle there is a mouth with a twisted toothy smile smiling at you. It opens, and says, “Back again, are we?”

    What do you do?

    Had a weird problem with my last response, it posted it before OP's recent post so it didn't make sense.

    OP, most of our answers are around the lines of "repeat litanies and try and cleanse the evil that's corrupting our thoughts.". Eve is something implanted in our mind my the taint of chaos, we don't need to humor the creature/thing... After all Jimmy is the only warm hole for us, we don't need Eve.
    >> GM !!0fEYB5hrFn3 08/04/10(Wed)23:56 No.11531442

    You stare at the mirror in horror. This can’t be real. It can’t be. Demons, those are just things Jimmy’s dad talks about in church right? Right? “Oh, I’m very real, and you know it. Now, I can’t fathom why your mind brought us here for your dream. Ok, I’m lying, I know exactly why we’re here. But it’s just so fun to watch you squirm. I mean, you only have until you wake up to remember what your looking for.”

    Looking for? I’m looking for something you wonder. No, it’s lying, this is just an illusion a trick. Your dream was just that, a dream. But if it was a dream, what is this thing doing here? Are you going mad? Or is there a demon in your mirror? No, your just…just…just dreaming, that’s it. It’s all a dream. And yet, it seems so real. You close your eyes and pray again. The mirror mouth laughs, and says, “You can force me to leave. I’ll always be right here with you, so long as your afraid of something. And you mortals, your always afraid of something.”

    You open your eyes, pissed. Is he saying you’re a coward? You clench your fist, and slam it into the mirror. It shatters, cutting your hand and drawing blood. Blood drips, and all the shards remain normal except one. It remains pitch black, and you here an laugh come from it that fills you with dread.

    What do you do?
    >> Guardsmen Fredendrall 08/05/10(Thu)00:00 No.11531491
    Ok, I'll bite, pocket the black shard... It's a dremon so the daemons already in us... This shouldn't hurt to much... Don't touch it with skin though, use a towel or something.

    Run out of the house to the lake and try and find Jimmy and eve before waking up. Avoid jimmies dad in case he feels the need to purge us for having the daemon.
    >> GM !!0fEYB5hrFn3 08/05/10(Thu)00:19 No.11531676

    You grab a washcloth and use it to pick up the black shard. Wrapping the shard in the cloth, you stash it in the back pocket of your pants. You deftly bandage you hand, making sure to disinfect it to prevent an infection. It comes to you so easily quickly, and yet you know you’ve never been trained. A memory flashes by. Boot camp, the medical building. A balding, middle aged old man in a lab coat with an officer’s patch demonstrates for you and a group of other men how to properly tend a wound. You stumble back at the sudden flash of lost memories, almost tripping. They couldn’t be real, could they? Your just farm boy, looking to spend the day at the lake. Any yet, you have a demon in your pocket. Life has gotten realy weird, really fast.

    You sprint down the stairs, your parents unable to stop you. Your mother asks on the way out what that crashing noise was, and looks down at your bandaged arm. She looks horrified, but you don’t stay long to talk to her about it. Soon, your running through fields of corn and other plants, making a mad dash to Jimmy’s house. You don’t know where Eve lives, but Jimmy might.

    His house is a large, almost a mansion. It’ style is ancient, and the place is said to be over a hundred years old. You wouldn’t know about that, but you know Jimmy’s dad is proud of its heritage. The church is not to far from the house, and given the hour his dad is probably already there. You knock on the door impatiently, and Jimmy answers in his swim trucks, saying, “Hey, you ready to go?

    What do you do?

    "Eve? She's your girlfriend you idiot. What, you forget about her or something?"

    Or something. She isn't real you tell yourself. She can't be. Yet everyone knows her. You hear the demon's laughter. Fucking demon, leave the hell alone! It only continues to laugh. Oddly enough, Jimmy doesn't seem to hear the laughter. Is it not really there? Are you going insane?

    Jimmy raises his eyebrows and asks if your ok. You quickly tell him you fine, and ask where you can find Eve. He says she's probably already on the lake. She loves the place apparently, as he says you can always find her there.

    You mentally prepare yourself for anything. Going at this rate, it's probably the best idea you've had all day. You and Jimmy head down to the lake as fast you can. Sadly, it isn't as fast as you wish it were. You're still exhausted from the sprint to Jimmy's house, and he's in no hurry to do anything. During the long walk, he keeps talking about how it would be awesome to join the Imperial Army, and fight in the war. You're barely paying attention, as you're too focused on getting to Eve, and you've heard him talk about joining countless times before. He seems so upbeat about something that got him killed in his dream, only to come back to earth and lament the fact his father won't let him join. oh yeah, you remember now. His dad doesn't want him to join the Army and get killed. Being his only son, the old Priest wants him to join the clergy and carry on the families work, but Jimmy wants nothing to do with it. Last time they talked about it, Jimmy stayed at your house for a week. Poor kid, there seems to be no way to win for him.

    You eventually arrive at the lake, the scene is beautiful, and you wish you had time to take the image is. The lake is sparkling and blue, and the sun is high in the sky by now. Any other day, it would be perfect. Sadly, you've got a job to do and no time to relax. You comb the area, looking for Eve. Eventually, you find her. Her back is turned to you, as she's facing the beach. Her pale skin is almost as white as her sundress, and just as flawless. The dress past her knees, almost to her ankles and is played with by the wind. A straw-hat sits atop her golden hair, which extends down her backside to her rear end. A sunflower top is attached to her hat, and she stands their, aware of you.

    What do you do?

    Approach her acting like you actually are her boyfriend and you know her, instead of showing your weakness to what could be the manifestation of the demon. Poker face all the way.

    Ask open ended questions to get full responses. How's her family (to see for any possible connection you can make to her), what her thoughts are on joining the guard with Jimmy and yourself, and finally what her she thinks "courage in the face of evil" means.

    You begin to approach her to say hi, when she turns around. For a moment, a look of surprise plays across her face. Her eyes the most perfect blue you've ever seen, and her face is beyond beautiful. She just seems... perfect.

    Your mind starts yelling at you to wake up, that she's a lie. This whole thing is a lie, and none of this is real. Another, seeming saner part says its ok, this is real. This is the truth. This is what you were looking for. Your head wars with itself for a moment. Your physical body falters for a moment, and you almost double over. Images race through your head. You begin to remember. You look back at up her and struggle to say, something, anything. What is courage in the face is evil seems like the best one at the moment, considering there's a demon in your pocket right now.

    As you look into her eyes, she gazes back at you and smiles. With the most serene smile you've ever seen, she closes her eyes and says,

    "Save me."

    She then bursts into flames. The demon bursts out into laughter when it happens, despite the fact that it couldn't possibly have seen it. the world, it slowly begins to fade away. Slowly, everything turns to black, and once again you're surrounded by darkness. Your memories return. You remember sneaking off one day with Jimmy and joining the guard. You remember the tears your mom shed when you told her, and the proud yet tired smile dad had. How your little brother hugged you before you for basic. The fight Jimmy had with his dad about it, and how it hurt him more than anything to think his father hated him. You remember when you were finished with all your training, and were at the spaceport about to leave. You remember Jimmy's dad coming, and giving him the bible to make peace. You remember your family in tears as you left, and yet so proud of you.

    Most importantly, you remember Eve. Growing up with her, spending almost everyday with her and Jimmy. You remember when you nervously asked her out, and your awkward first kiss. You remember telling her that you loved her, and when you told her you became a soldier. You remember that last night before you left, that last, wonderful night... Why are you only remembering this now? Did the warp take these memories from you when the field failed? Or where they never real. you're not sure of anything anymore, only the demon's laughter and your own terror as you finally wake up.

    You immediately go to the deacon, asking him to bless you. When he asks why, you explain you had a horrible nightmare, but leave out the details. He lets out a tired sigh, and gives you a ritual blessing of the god. You don't feel any different, but you hope your protected now.

    You inquire about the new people, and the deacon informs you that they're sadly to injured at the moment, give them a day or so, and they might be walking around again, but not until then. When he sees the dejected look on your face, he quickly tells you that he has good news. The soldiers that just arrived came not just with a lasgun, but a rare piece of a weaponry. He asks you to look it over and see if you can use it.

    When you first see it, you you think god has hand delivered you a gift. Its too beautiful to eb true, you tell yourself.

    You quickly tell the deacon that this is a wonderful weapon the have, and that he should bless who ever brought the meltagun. Your reaction brings a small smile to the man's face, as he goes off to bless and thank whoever brought the gun.

    Thankfully, you were trained in the use of assault weapons in training, so you know how to use the weapon. Still your nerves haven't been helping your aim lately, and with only three shots, you better make them count.

    You ask if it's alright to take the meltagun to get more weapons and ammo, as well if there's anything else they need. The deacon doesn't even stop think, quickly explaining that they need more food. Ration bars sandwichs, anything will do at this point.

    Just a suggestion for the melta:

    From what I understand, the melta shoots plasma, magma, some sort of bone-melty goodness. Instead of attacking individual targets, the melta would be of more use as a distraction, striking fear into the hearts of the Emprah's foes.

    Also, it could be used to melt enemy emplacements or create cover by melting overhead supports.

    The food can wait, no point on going there to get ambushed. At least at the armory, you know whats waiting for you. You say your prayers, hoping that God is looking out for you somehwere above. Maybe he is, and this is his twisted way of showing it.

    The hallways are no less creepy than before, and now knowing there's a demon out there possible gunning for you makes the trip all the more worse. The blinking lights and rattling metal of the ceiling plays hovak on your nerves, but you peresevere none the less. People are depending on you, and you can't let them down.

    Eventually, you come to the four way intersection from the night before. You quickly look down each the hallways, hopeing to avoid any nasty surprise. Thankfully nothing is out to get you. At least, not here. Just as you turn down the hallway for the stairwell, you here something in the darkness. At first you don't recognize it. Then, you simply don't want to beloeve it. It shouldnt be possible. Its a voice, feminine, and it says one thing.

    It can't be real, you know it. Eve's back home, safe. Not on some cold, god-forsaken heap of metal drifting through hell. It can't be. It just... it just can't be....

    You resist the urge to turn back and look for her. Its so hard, knowing that she might be on this ship and needing you to save her. You know she couldn't possibly be here, and yet weirder things have happened. Maybe the warp stole her away to this ship, to torment you? She might have nsuck aboard, unwilling to be with out you. It doesn't matter. These thoughts are just distracting you from your real goal.

    You press on, with your bayonet lasgun at the ready, moving down the hallway for the stairwell. It isn't long before you arrive. However, you notice something, under the metal door, in the crack beneath the door that lets its open, water is slowly trickeling through

    You open the door, slamming it open with your gun at the ready. A little bit of water floods out, making you immeadiately thankful for your leather boots that keep your feet warm and dry. The water isn't enough to puch you back at all, but the bottom of your pants are rather soaked.

    Looking into the stairwell, you quikcly note the obvious, that its flooded and still raining. The rain isn't any worse. From where you are you can't seem much in there, though you could move in to get a better look. On the otherhand, that would put you in a place of definate warp presence.

    You walk into the stairwell, hellbent on raiding that armory, come hell or well, high water. You enter the flooded starway, the water splashing off your boots as you work your way up the metal staircase with your un in hand. You cheeck the rain, reaffirming your previous realization that it was indeed rain. Halfway up the stairs, you decide the look down into the water, and proptly wish you didn't. For a second, you think you see something... swimming in the water. Great, just great.

    Alternately, I suppose the daemon could have killed them for whatever reason. Still, I wouldn't be particularly worried about her. We've been at her mercy on several occasions, and she's spared us thus far.

    You slowly open the door, doing your best to sneak about. You movements are as silent as you can, but there's only so much you can do when you walking in a gigantic puddle of blood. Oh God, the smell, its horrible! the scent of blood and death assault you nose, while the images ingrain themselves into you mind. The area outside the armory has become a kill zone. Bodies lie every where, blood freely flowing from the dead. Some are horribly burnt, many have holes and them. Some have been dismembered, missing whole limbs and other body parts. You get a quesy feeling in your stomach that you've grown all too used to when you see an eyeball just sitting there on the ground. Several bodies have been arranged as improptu walls to be used as cover, though from the looks of no one benefitted from the situation. The walls are covered with scorth makrs and holesl las-shots and bullents, as well as several dents from shrapnel.

    The scene is sickening, and you almost double over to throw up, but your stomachs contents are already empty and you are suddenly reminded of your own hunger. At the very least, your not getting shot at. Speaking of which, where are the armory people? Are they still alive anymore you ask your self.

    On one of the walls, near the bottom you see somethign written hastily in blood, more over to it, you squint to read it. It says, "God have mercy, for this monster will not." It ends in a bloody handprint, and below it you see a hand. It isn't attached to anything.

    You slowly aproach the armory. The half wall from before that was used as cover by the guardsmen has since been closed, meaning that the only way in is a very secure doorway that could very easily be a trap. You exhuastively search over the door, making sure that no one has booby trapped it to the best of your ability. Oddly enough, it hasn't been secured. In fact, we you touch it, it just slides inwards, as if there asn't even a lock attached. You soon learn why.

    Oh dear god you say aloud as you enter, the horrific scene reaching at your sanity. The door had been kicked in earlier, ripping off the various locks, enabling anyone to get in if they wanted. Why anyone would want in now though, is anyone's guess, but you rather wouldn't. You double over onto you knees as you get a frsh look at the carnage. The floor is littlered with limbs, chrage packs, bullets and blood. The main room, about tewnty feet by twenty feet, had been destroyed by battle, and desecrated by the victor. Several men have been gutted and torn apart, organs laying on the ground for all to see. A few have been nailed to the wall like some sort of macabre cross, all headless. They hang by nothing but there hands, which have been pierced through the palms by metal spikes. On the ground in the middle of the room, lies the sergeant from before. His jaw is missing, and there seems to be a ballpeen hammer stuck in his forehead, his brain oozing from the wound.

    In one corner, you find the heads. All have been scalped, there tops exposed for all to see. You grab at your face, trying to take hold of the reality before you. And in the other coner is the perpitrator of the crime against humanity. He sits calmly down on a metal bench, as calm as if he has at home watching a television show. HIs flak armor is covered in blood, as is his face and scraggily beard. You avoid his eyes, afraid of what you might see, and instead focus on the aze in his hands that he's sharpening.

    The man notices you, and with an abosulutely calm and normal smile says, "Why hello, who are you? What a wonderful thing it is, to see someone else alive. These guys aren't much to talk to, you now?" He guetures at the dead a s he speaks, making it sure who he's talking about.

    In a moment of panic or clarity, your not exactly sure, you bring up the metla gun and pull the trigger as fast as you can. You bearded man is fast, faster than should be possible for someone his size, he leaps up and charges for you. Something angry, berserk, and utterly mad. Rage fills his eyes, and before you know it he's upon you, you barely manage to dodge out of the way, but he's to fast to bring the gun to bear accurately, and you only have three shots. Its like a ballet of brutality and rage in the blood, him moving to fast to be targeted, you frantically dodging his attacks.

    He screams at the top of his lungs, a blood chilling war cry that borders on the unnatural. It almost makes you want to give in, but your refuse to. Not while people are depending on you. In a wild gambit, he hurls his axe at you. It slashes the side of you left arm, and the force and surprise sends you backwards. You trip over a separated limb, and fell backwards onto your ass. The man smiles ferally, and picks up the hammer out of the sergeants head. It’s still covered with blood and grey matter, you know he intends to do the same with you.

    You grasp at your wound, the pain too much and distracting you from matters at hand. He walks closer, savoring his victory. With a cruel smile he stands above you and says, "No skull, but a pretty new weapon all the same. I wonder what it does?"

    Righteous fury fills your body. Jimmy isn't here to save you this time, but you won't die. Not yet, you still have to save Eve. Even if she isn't real, its still a good motivator. You grasp the meltagun in your hands, and raise it to his head, saying, "Here, let me show you." You pull the trigger and a crackle of super-heated air fills the room. His head is gone, his neck a cauterized stump and there's a hole in the ceiling where he used to be. His body slumps to the ground, dead.

Our guy needs to be a little more battle hardened after what he's seen and done, make him a little more badass and less mainstream emotional to reflect the humanity checks we've been through. At this point simple gore shouldn't really phase him (the stuff outside, not the ritualistic shit Inside.)

    Thanks. I'm trying to make him less sensitive, like how he didn't completely lose it outside, but honestly I'm still trying to work on my writing.

    Anyway, thanks everyone who's been reading and following on this, hope you're all enjoying it so far.

    Keep going OP. I'm looking forward to our guardsman turning from green recruit to battle hardened RIP AND TEAR badass.

    I'm looking forward to our guardsman going from green recruit to shell-shocked survivor, giving himself up to the daemon, and discovering the unspeakable joys of Slaaneshi heresy.

    Thanks OP.
