It is the 51st Millennium and I cannot wake up from this nightmare! I cannot wake up!
—From the Introduction, and It Gets Worse from there.

What's worse than Warhammer 40k? Warhammer 50k. The Orks and Tyranids become a hybrid, The God Emperor has perished, the Imperium is shattered, the Necrons reawaken, Chaos reigns supreme, and that's just the beginning. The sheer amount of despair and horror can be unnerving at times, and the often Lovecraftian style of writing amplifies these elements. Basically, this is to 40k as 40k is to Star Wars or Star Trek. The story can be found here. Note that since it is posted on a forum, there will inevitably be some posts between the updates. There is now a sequel, The Age of Dusk, which can be found here.

Because this is a fanfiction of Warhammer 40000, please consult that page for tropes pertaining to the original universe of which this fanfic is set.
