[ERROR] No.27021165 [DELETED]  [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

After a century of servitude, Space Marine realizes he is hollow, he has nothing. He knows there are enemies of the Empire, he knows his oaths, but he also realizes there will always be enemies, Ruinous powers, greenskins and alike while his time is, after all, limited.

He wants a normal life with a normal woman on some simple agri-world. He wants some children to remain after he is gone.

What happens, /tg/?

one of the high points in Brothers of the Snake is when the main space marine squad of the book gets sent on diplomatic duty to attend the crowning of a new monarch on one of the nearby sector worlds.

They're flummoxed at the soft beds and royal treatment, and when the newly-minted boy king invites them to mingle-

>"Mingle? What in the Emperor's name does that mean?"

-with the crowd at the gala, they proceed to stand rock-solid for the next hour while the court peers at them and occasionally one of the braver attendees comes forward to touch their armor in reverence.

Or, maybe he was just wounded in battle and was taken away by Chaos forces before his brothers could suck out his glorious throbbing geneseed, then he got mind-broken into being a crazy-ass Khornate Berserker or something.

There was a segment in one of the Eisenhorn books, Xenos, when the inquisitor encountered a SM Librarian.

>"Shaven-headed, a giant of a man even without his
armour, Brytnoth was nevertheless cordial and attentive, addressing me with respect and listening with genuine interest to my replies.
I tried to do verbal justice to my memories of the experience, and additionally related the theories that Malahite had expounded during
that fateful seance.
Eschewing the luxury of a servitor scribe or clerk, Brytnoth made his own notes as he listened. I found myself engrossed watching the
warrior's paw working the dwarfed stylus almost delicately across the note-slate.
We sat in my apartments for the sessions, which often lasted hours. Bequin brought in regular trays of hot mead or leaf infusions, and
Brytnoth actually extended his little finger as he lifted the porcelain cups by the handle. He was to me the embodiment of war in
peacetime, a vast power bound into genteel behaviour, striving to prevent his awesome strength from breaking loose. He would lift the
cup, small finger extended, consult his notes and ask another question before sipping.
The fact that small finger was the size and shape of an Arbites' truncheon was beside the point."
