    21 KB The Emperor's Day Martyr Anonymous 12/14/10(Tue)06:53 No.13147755  
    I. The Vision

    T'was Emperor's Day, long past,
    Or so the story goes,
    And the Emperor took the journey
    That every child knows.

    When suddenly He was struck
    By a vision dark and grim
    Of subjects in grave danger
    In prayer, beseeching Him.

    But clearest seen by far
    To fall upon His gaze
    A girl, so pure and bright
    She shined through all the haze.

    She kneeled before a giant,
    Its manner cold and dread,
    And held it a great axe,
    It brought down upon her head.

    The Emperor broke the trance
    And declared "It shan't be so."
    Then through the warp He traveled,
    To stop the killing blow.

    II. The Children of the Emperor

    He quickly found the world
    From where the vision came
    And went to join his subjects
    Who fought on in his name.

    Where upon He found
    A schola under siege,
    Full of faithful fighting
    And praying to their liege.

    Though he searched the schola,
    The girl could not be sought.
    "Perhaps, I'm merely early,"
    The noble Emperor thought.

    When through the din of battle
    He heard the mournful cry
    Of children sadly weeping,
    In fear that they may die.

    The Emperor went to join them
    And with a joyful call
    He proclaimed his many presents
    To give to one and all.

    III. The Gifts

    When the children truly saw him
    Their faces all turned bright
    And quickly was forgotten,
    The terrors of the night.

    A trusty wooden lasgun,
    To a young Storm Trooper boy
    Who thought of all the Xenos
    He would slay with his new toy.

    And to a future Commissar
    He gave a golden sash,
    For he would grow to lead his men
    With cunning, dare, and dash.

    And to a little sister,
    He gave a stuffed silk skull.
    For to His honor would be pledged
    All the traitors she would cull.

    Then there among their number
    Was one unlike the rest.
    She minded all the children,
    like a hen within a nest.

    IV: The Daughter

    Her soul was fine and wholesome,
    Her faith was strong and pure,
    Her whole life she had given
    Unto the Emperor.

    She was the oldest of them,
    Though, truly, not be much
    She simply was their sister
    And was treated just as such.

    Her training was just finished
    Her time there was now spent
    She only awaited orders
    To join her new Convent.

    She was every bit a blossom
    That still had yet to bloom,
    When then He did remember
    That He had seen her doom.

    For the vision He recalled
    And knew it to be true
    This young girl would soon die
    And there was nothing He could do.

    V: The Greatest Gift

    The Emperor held her tight,
    For His sorrow was so great,
    And He showed her the near future,
    That was to be her fate.

    Then softly he did speak,
    So gently to her ears,
    To grant her one last present
    To lessen all her fears.

    "What gift may I offer
    Or what thanks can I give,
    To one about to die,
    So that others still may live?"

    The girl began to weep,
    But her face, it was not grim.
    She smiled just like an angel
    As she explained to him:

    "To die for the defenseless,
    To succeed at my last task,
    To stand here with my Emperor,
    For what more could I ask?"

    Then it was as He had saw,
    For His vision came to be.
    The chamber door burst open
    To reveal the enemy.

    VI: The Battle

    For in, then, came the monster,
    That would strike the angel down,
    And carve from her an offering
    To place upon his crown.

    The children began to wail,
    Some sought to run or hide,
    While others could not move
    And only stared and cried.

    But between them and the monster,
    The blessed sister stood
    And fought there to protect them
    As any mother would.

    Yet, the monster was too much
    And she fell down to her knees,
    The monster raised his axe
    Deaf to all the children’s pleas.

    Then the Emperor spoke
    And sparked fire in her heart
    She thrust forward with her chainsword
    And rent its chest apart.

    VII: The Martyr

    Even as she struck,
    And ended the great strife,
    The daemon axe came down
    And stole away her life.

    The Emperor knelt beside
    And cradled the martyred daughter,
    Knowing she had stopped
    What would have of been a slaughter.

    Then rushed in the instructors,
    And defenders to the scene,
    Of the Emperor and His daughter,
    So silent and serene.

    The Emperor told the story,
    Of what there had transpired,
    And not one could stand to hide,
    The emotion she inspired.

    Away the two disappeared,
    And not a word was uttered,
    Until loud cries from the courtyard said,
    "A miracle's occurred!"

    VIII: The Miracle

    For there amidst the carnage
    A statue of marble stood,
    From where or when it had come
    No one there understood.

    For the statue was the Emperor,
    So grand and finely crafted,
    His hands upon the shoulders of
    The sister He had raptured.

    Her face was poise and beautiful
    Free of flaw or blemish,
    So perfect that they all agreed,
    She had never suffered anguish.

    For every Emperor's Day after
    The schola would gather for prayer,
    Around the perfect statue,
    That the Emperor placed there.

    And there beneath their feet,
    Forever carved in stone,
    "Always I am at your side,
    You'll never stand alone."

    Yes. Blood of Martyrs (a fitting title, given the thread) which is all about the Ecclesiarchy, faith and all that. The Adepta Sororitas get a whole section to themselves and are frequently mentioned, naturally.

    i was wondering where the link between witchfinders and the poem was, but i sort of see it now.

    the whole idea of the sob is pretty awesome, especially considering they were only founded because the church is forbidden from having 'men under arms.' xD

    The establishment of the Adepta Sororitas is described as "a masterful example of semantic dissemination." I personally inclined to believe that the organisation's purity and willingness to execute corrupt superiors makes the case for their continued existence.

    It is original and thank you for your comments.

    I did something similar a couple years back about a guardsman, at least the initial draft of it. That was mostly a parody and I wanted to be a bit more fluid this time around. I appreciate any critiques. Apart from a spelling fumble here and there, I'm happy with it, as it was made with only notepad.

    If GW/black library ever releases a "Bible of the imperium" like they did in fantasy with The Life of Sigmar, this should be in it.

    Wrong, they were founded and to continue their existence the law was written around it.

    Sabastian Thor never disbanded the Daughters of the Emperor when he wrote the law and all that happened after it was they restructured and took the official title of Adepta Sororitas.

    The law was written to appease a cowardly few politics and High Lords who were all found to of assisted Vandire in the end and were removed from their position at a minimum by the Sisters shortly there after.

    I never got why Thor didn't kill off the sisters there and then.

    Didn't they commit high treason for helping Goge totally fuck over the Imperium? Most Imperial citizens get shot for just being close to the area of where the heresy is happening. I don't see why the Sisters get away with it just because they said they were sorry.

    1. They were not traitors themselves but were led by man who convinced them he spoke for the emperor.
    2. They broke the Age of Apostasy and killed Vandire, no one else would have been able to do it without first turning the Ecclesiarchy Palace into the worlds largest crater.
    3.Thor realised that without a standing army then the Ecclesiarchy would suffer the same fate that the Adminstratum (Spelling?) did at the hands of Vandire as now none of the remaining lords would trust that the Church wouldn't just pull the same shit again.
    4. Thor so desperately needed to troll-face the other High Lords when the first thing the Daughters of the Emperor do after the Decree Passive is introduced is round up and arrest all of Vandire's supporters. (Which was half the remaining HLs and hundreds of thousands of polis and clerks)

    And anyway, why are marines still around? Didn't they commit high treason when half of them tore most of the Imperium apart at the seams and even today chapters turn their backs on the Imperium like it was going out of fashion?
