    What the title says: can you put a link to any good Warhammer 40k fanfics you've read?

    I like to play 40K, but I am not a huge fan of the books and never got into the fanfiction.

    I can tell you that there are a decent amount of stories or quests over at SB/SV.

    I don't really know of many.

    Hiver is currently writing one where he wakes up in 40k and is found in a cryopod by an Inquisitor. Hiver fics are normally decent enough, with a roughly 1K update every two days.

    Andoriol started writing one on QQ, but pretty sure it's now abandoned. There was a lengthy torture scene, and most responses after that were 'what the fuck Andoriol?', which I think killed inspiration, so there's only one or two further chapters.

    StrangerOrders is writing a 30K Primarch SI. I put a post in Almost Recd on it

    Death Korps of Justice is about a Krieger who wakes up in Teen Titans, I think. I've not been reading updates for a few months, so I'm a way behind.

    Love and Krieg is definitely worth mentioning, about a civvie and a Death Korps woman. The spin-off is also worth a read. Terranis holds.

    There's a RWBY crossover in the library, where Yang becomes a member of the IG, but I didn't get far because I hadn't got far enough into RWBY at that time.

    The Long Night by Durin on SV stands out. The quest follows Frederick Rotbart, the governor of an Imperial Deathworld called Avernus. It’s a fairly long quest, having started in 2014 and has been constantly updated. It’s not a quest in which the dies have been amazing throughout, if that’s something you fear. Durin is an amazing QM and the world building is insane.

    The Cain and Abel series by Mike Stormm is great if you like the Ciaphas Cain series. Follows a female commissar who's Cain's protege.

    Toyhammer is pretty great if you're a /tg/ kind of guy. Models come to life because warp shenanigans.

    Norwest has some cool Titan related oneshots.

    Confessions of a Wayward Son is my fucking crack as a Thousand Sons fan and player. Same author also did a Warhammer/Warcraft crossover where a space marine ends up in Azeroth for reasons. It's actually great.

    Child of the Emperor is an okay time waster.

    https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5460191/1Another Cain story. I don't even remember the details of this one, but I archived it so it's probably decent.

    Fifteenth Ascendant is a story where the Rubric of Ahriman did as it was intended. Bit of KSons wankery, but also has some amazing stuff for other Chaos factions. The Dark Mechanicum segment in particular is actually epic.

    A Long Way From Home is a Warhammer/Star Wars crossover where a small fleet of SW ships end up in 40k.

    For Those We Cherish is a RWBY/40k crossover. A ship full of Lamenters ends up stranded in orbit over Remnant, so they start liaising with the locals. Actually worth reading, includes gems such as the following.

    For some really out there classic fic, Shinji and Warhammer 40k is a legendary story. It's an Evangelion/Warhammer cross which is more Evangelion with 40k elements than anything else.

    Hope some of you enjoy.
