Short answer: not happening.

Long answer: no. Firstly, the saga - the seed idea, the setup, the initial incidents - all of those are not mine. To take over it entirely would be less than polite, and to give the full credit to me misleading. But more importantly, I can't possibly finish this myself. The structure is set up for multiple authors. Not just in the sense of there being too much for one person to do (there isn't - the series will probably be complete at ~50 installments, times 40K words, is 2M, which is a huge amount but not completely impossible), but in the sense that Renegades' idea density, which is a core stylistic element of the series, is as high as it is precisely because of authors playing off each other. It needs to be more than one person - really, it needs to be more than two.

I'm glad that you enjoy my writing - really, I am - and thank you for the praise. And it's a fair point that I should be working on more of my own projects - there's two fics I have in the early stages right now, but neither is 40K; then there's Heresy Apatite and Phoenix Imperium, one of which I want to start for NaNoWriMo this year and the other before that, plus original story ideas, but time constraints... I have too many story seeds for my own good, to be honest. But Renegades is not in the same category as all of that.

The Emperor has turned to Chaos. The dream of the Imperium has become a nightmare. But Horus and his Coalition stand against the dark, here at the end of time.
