Re: Warhammer 40k fluff thread VI: They see me Ward'en, they haten
You assume that is a bad thing. That's the thing about aliens - their worldviews are, well, alien to us.
And the teachings of the Imperium are to know your duty and to follow and obey, not to aspire (source: various inc. numerous Thoughts For the Day). Many canon sources have people wanting to join the guard to leave their homeworld as they will have opportunities on new worlds that they won't on their old ones.
But still, the hardest things to say are the words that mean the most
So come on angel, say that you love me
, and nothing in this world will ever scare me again.
