Default What does Grimdark look like from the other side?

What does the galaxy look like from the other side... Nids, Chaos, Tau, Necron, take your pick. All is grimdark in the Imperium because of the multiple galactic-scale nasties coming down on the Imperium, which is not supposed to be in the shape it once was. Well, what about if we look at it from the viewpoint of:

Nids: We've sent, what, four expeditionary forces and they've all been destroyed by a bunch of over-zealous hairless monkeys.

Necron: Great, we wait hundreds of millions of years and when we finally wake up, we have a force of wet-behind-the-ears barely evolved organic meat-bags hassling us and hampering our efforts to reawaken our forces.

Tau: Why can't we all just get along? Why does the Greater Good keep getting it's ass kicked by these icky people.

Chaos: I'm going to start getting pissed if I have to reincarnate 50 more times! Will you just lay down and suffer!

While the Imperium is on the brink of collapse, they do so by the virtue that they've been beating up everything else that comes along pretty successfully. Whadda' ya' think?

The White Zone is for loading and unloading only. If you have to load, or if you have to unload, go to the White Zone. You'll love it... it's a way of life.

Nick Naylor: Cigarettes in space?
Jeff Megall: It's the final frontier, Nick.
Nick Naylor: But wouldn't they blow up in an all oxygen environment?
Jeff Megall: Probably. But it's an easy fix. One line of dialogue. 'Thank God we invented the... you know, whatever device.'

I always thought the DE were more sadist and slaanesh masticates.

Tau: Why do people keep thinking we keep losing when all that happened is once upon a time when we first met the Imperium we lost the worlds that we conquered from them, peacifully and they only had human soldiers, and then caused so much damage that they turned and fled home with their tails between their legs.

Masticates? That means 'to chew'. Did you mean masochists (or get auto-corrected)?

Though of course Slaanesh does like to masticate Eldar.
