I figured a lot of you would like Doctor Who as well as 40K, so I decided to write a crossover for your enjoyment, featuring The 11th Doctor, Amy and Rory, set after Vampires in Venice
and before Amy's Choice
. Anyone who points out the quote used The Hungry Earth (Different Person),
, gets a rep. Should be easy.
Hope you all like it. First Chapter is really The Doctor explaining everything to Amy and Rory, next chapter will see the 40K universe in more detail.
Lord of Time
A Doctor Who / Warhammer 40,000 Crossover Fanfiction
Amy Pond - “You threw the manual in a supernova? Why?”
The Doctor - “Because I disagreed with it! Stop talking to me when I'm cross!”
“Here we are!” The Doctor pressed a button on The TARDIS console and looked at Amy and Rory in enthusiasm. “Set the controls to random, could be anywhere, anytime, anywhen.”
“Anywhen?” asked Rory, following The Doctor and Amy Pond to the door.
The Doctor smiled, and, just before he opened the door, he announced, “This is the best part. Out this door could be The Infernal Paradigm of Olympiarcus V, or Prospero at the Time of Magnus the Red!”
“I’m sorry, Magnus the Red?” asked Amy.
“Magnus the Red, Traitor Primarch of the Thousand Sons Space Marine legion,” explained The Doctor. “In The 30th Millennium, The Third Great and Bountiful Human Empire at its peak, otherwise known as the Imperium of Man.”
“The Imperium of Man?” asked Rory, confused. “And is that where we are? Prospero?”
“I hope not,” The Doctor replied, and began to talk really quickly. “Now, at the dawn of the First Millennium, humanity had descended into warlike tribes fighting over land. Then, one man stepped in, only known as The Emperor. He unified all of the warring tribes and called Earth Terra.
“Once he had established a Citadel on Terra, he set about creating 20 Primarchs. 20 Demi-Gods. Horus, Leman Russ, Angron, Cruze, Vulkan, Corax and Magnus the Red, and so on,” continued The Doctor. “However, something got in the way. The Chaos Gods.”
“The Chaos What?” asked Amy.
“The Chaos Gods,” The Doctor replied. “Five, no, there’s Four at this point in time, named Khorne, Nurgle, Slaneesh and Tzneeetch. They sent the 20 Primarchs to different worlds, fearful of the Emperor’s ambitions. Russ to Fenris, Corax to Deliverance, Magnus the Red to Prospero, and others to as many different worlds as there were Primarchs. But The Emperor created Superhuman warriors known as Space Marines instead, a legion for Each Primarch. Ultramarines, Salamanders, Raven Guard and others, and he set forward to conquer the worlds for mankind. The Great Crusade some called it.
“But it would all came to an end. Although each Primarch was reunited with their legion, which carried the same DNA as their ‘father’, The Chaos Gods tempted the Primarchs into Heresy. The Horus Heresy, as it was so named after...”
“After Horus rebelled?” offered Amy.
“Spot on,” The Doctor smiled. “Half of the Legions rebelled with Horus, edged on by the false promises of the Imperium, and set out to kill the Emperor. However, in a titanic Battle, The Emperor killed Horus, even though he was his favoured son.”
“Wait, so the Emperor killed his own son?” asked Rory.
“Yes,” nodded The Doctor. “However, you must remember that Horus was tainted by Chaos by now and dammed to walk a dark path forever. After all, Horus killed another Primarch; I forget the name, the one of the Blood Angels legion. Anyways, The Emperor killed Horus and was left in a near death situation. Rogal Dorn, Primarch of the Imperial Fists took the Emperor to the Golden Throne, where the Emperor could protect humanity from the perils of the warp.”
“The Warp?” Rory asked, confused.
“Best not to talk too much about it. If one knows too much the Chaos Gods might start trying to tempt you to join them,” The Doctor looked Rory in the eye. “And believe me; you don’t want that to happen. Look at Horus.”
“But how come you know too much?” asked Amy. “Have they tried to tempt you too?”
“Nah, they wouldn’t dream of it,” The Doctor replied.
“Are you scared of them?” asked Rory, suddenly.
“Nope,” The Doctor smiled, raising an eyebrow. “There’s very few things that the Chaos Gods are scared of. In fact, there’s only one thing in the history of creation that scares them.”
“And what’s that?” Amy asked.
“Did I not mention?” The Doctor chuckled. “The Chaos Gods are scared of me.”
The Doctor clapped his hands together enthusiastically, and walked towards the door. “Right then, after the Emperor is practically dead, Rogal Dorn put him on the Golden Throne... Hey, I’m repeating myself. After Rogal Dorn had put the Emperor on the Golden Throne, The Primarch of the Ultramarines, I forget his name as well, Roboute something or other, created a Codex that all of the Legions which remained loyal should follow. However some, because of the way their Primarch was created, oh and by the way, all of the loyal Primarchs are either dead or missing, and the traitors are in the Eye of Terror or dead.”
“What’s the Eye of Terror, Doctor?” asked Rory.
“Doesn’t sound very cheerful,” observed Amy.
“You’re right,” The Doctor replied. “Now if we’re inside there, and trust me, even though the Chaos Gods are scared of me you still wouldn’t want to be inside their Playground. So if we are, I’m getting us all out of there.”
“Now, back to the legions. Some legions like the Space Wolves didn’t follow the Codex at all, because of the Independency of their Primarch, Leman Russ. The Traitors fled to the Eye of Terror and the Warp, and...”
“And?” Amy asked.
“And the Age of the Imperium began,” The Doctor explained. “Oh yes, did I mention that there are alien called The Orks, who are warlike green aliens, The Eldar, who are basically witches of the far future, the Dark Eldar, who are basically evil witches of the far future, and The Tyranids, who are basically there to devour all life. Oh yes, and The Necrons, who also want to destroy all life.”
“Defiantly a very cheerful place, this 30th Millennium, then?” asked Amy, sarcastically.
“By this time, we’re in the 40th,” The Doctor explained. “Anyway, we don’t even know whether we’re in the 40th or not. But I’m getting bored by now, let’s find out if we’re there or not, shall we?”
And The Doctor pushed open the door.
