Author has written 9 stories for Harry Potter, and Warhammer.
I'm currently a very frustrated artist who has discovered a creative outlet in writing fan-fiction.
In my spare time I love reading fan-fiction as well as painting, drawing and doing photography (yes, I do it for fun too :D )
I've also recently graded to my 2nd Dan black belt in Wado ryu Karate :-) Now that was three hours of pain, good pain, but still pain.
Well that went down the pan didn't it...you'll be pleased to know chapter 6 is actually in the bag finally, and i'm currently working on chapter 7. Post date will be February 1st, for real this time. I seriously underestimated how crazy Xmas would get at work (joys of retail, though it's nowhere near as bad as it was) not to mention several interesting and unpleasant colds. I can't wait for spring now, I've had enough of all this dark grungy weather :-(
Anyway, thank-you for your patience and continued support :-) I appreciate it all, the reviews, the sggestions, everything...
I apologize for the lack of an update. It's like my writing mojo has cleared off to Hawaii but had the cheek not to invite me :-( so writing has been an absolute teeth pulling crawl at the moment. It's going forward, I've actually got over 6k words in the computer, but it's more like a distracted snail than a cheetah. As a probably mis-guided attempt to try and get my mind more in gear I also started another story and I've also got some of a first chapter of that in the computer too. It's not got a name yet but it's promising to be interesting.
So anyway, I planning to get Chapter 6 posted before Christmas (this year). Thank-you for your patience and continued support. I really appreciate it :-)
Why is Inquisitor Carrow also a Space Marine?
I was initial inspired by the character of Inquisitor Lord Hector Rex who can be found in Imperial Armour Vol:7 The Siege of Vraks - part 3, on pages 122-125.
Lord Inquisitor Hector Rex works for the Ordos Malleus and is described as having undergone "a similair genetic enhancement to that of a Space Marine." He is further described as towering "8' tall, is heavily muscled and is in superb condition." He is also a powerful psyker who has undergone terminator training...all in all a very scary customer.
Hector Rex has obviously been made to order as a powerful tool for the Ordos Malleus to wield against the forces of Chaos...so, what if a rogue Inquisitor who was owed a favor by a Space Marine chapter tried to make his own? And this was how Carrow initial came to be...
Harry's new father was busily going off the rails, this becoming clearer when he forces the Charnel Guard, who owe him a favor to take Harry on as a potential aspirant. As Harry becomes one with his new family, his father goes off the rails completely and is hunted down by his brother Inquisitors who, to aid in their search come looking for their prey's adopted son...who proceeds to prove himself a worthy tool for the Inquisition...there's a novel in here somewhere I'm certain.
And so several hundred years later you are left with Inquisitor Carrow, all round menace to the enemies of Humanity, who is both an Inquisitor and an honorary brother of the Charnel Guard, (you might be able to take the Space Marine out of the Chapter but you can't take the Chapter out of the Space Marine :-D ) who has a nasty meeting with an Eldar Wytch...
I noticed in the reviews a number of people expressing surprise that someone would need permission to for flight tests. I'm pretty certain in the UK they would. We have one of the most crowded air-spaces in the world, with major air-traffic lanes passing all over the country as well as numerous very busy airports serving international air traffic.
That's before you even get on to the private and military traffic, the people with with aircraft, microlights and handgliders...
Here's an interesting animation that shows just how extreme the situation is...
