I have heard of a love story between a vindicare assasin and a farseer, yet there doesn't seem to be much other solid stuff.

Please tell me any stories you have heard of, or even situations where there could be the possibility of a romance in 40k.

Also I don't want people to make 101 references to slaneesh. Slaneesh is more about sex than love.

I have not heard of any being published in the fluff, though i'm sure there are a fair number in fandom. This comes as much from what we reading about as it does from the nature of the fluff its self. The stories that make it in to the codex are the war-stories of the 41st millenium, not the romance novels of the 41st millenium.

Mechanicum Fleet 2000 1000
2000? (Almost all 2nd ed.)
I think that about covers it. For now.

Harlequin novel i believe has a love story.

There is no love story in fluff though , can you imagine the rage from warhammer players if they see a happy ending to someone else ? Only grim dark allowed.

There are some. Ciaphas Cain and Inquisitor Amberley have something going for those that've read the Cain books.

The Emperor doesn't seem to do much for you but you sure are expected to be mutilated, suffer, and die to make him happy. And is he dead or what? If he's entombed that would mean he's dead as a doornail, right? So, how can he be happy about anything you do, or even give orders to anyone? Are you worshipping the dead now? Is that something you'd really want to do? Because it sounds freaking creepy to me.

I don't know, mabye a forbidden love story between an SoB and...I don't know, Guardsmen.

P.S I have seen that panel before LOL. But what is the real ending?

Well you've got to remember - It IS a tabletop strategy game. The fluff focuses around the endless wars and battles rather than the individual human element of things. But that isn't to say there isn't romance. It's just far and few between that it's mentioned. And often romance only plays a minor roll in most novels. If you gotta have it though, as I said the Cain books have a smidge, and the Gaunt's Ghosts books have a few here and there in some of them. Mostly those are just Gaunt being a man-whore though

What? No he didn't!
The only time I can recall Gaunt sleeping with anyone was in Necropolis.

Besides, i wanted this thread to concentrate more on romance, like the relationship between the Troopers Caffran and Criid, than just sex.

Also, I read in the back of the Deamon codex that nurgle actually loves (in a wierd way) Isha (or someone) and saved her from Slaneesh. Wierd love though becuase he feeds her poisons and locks her in his tower.

And kittens, and love, and the powerpuff Sisters of Battle.

Ever heard the saying 'make love not war', well why not have a go at both?

Dammit.
Well that's not to say we should give up. Besides there is love, even in war. Khorne/Orks LUUUV war. So there.

Besides if a vindicare assasin can fall in love, then isn't there hope for us all? (cept Nids)
A vindicare assasin would have an eye for this kind of thing (pun intended).

Where ever the Emperor needs his eyes

As for Gaunt, there was the daughter of that one guy, then there was the PDF Major from Traitor General, also they imply that he has the Hots for Ana Curth and she for him, Romantic Sub-Plot in Traitor General.

Then there is Caff and Criid, and Rawne and Jessi Banda, Meryn and Banda, Larks and Bragg, Gaunt and Mkoll, Mkoll and his wife, Gaunt and Lilith, Gaunt and Rawne...

Then in Double Eagle, the bomber pilot and the waitress, the female pilot and everyone.

Then in Brothers of the Snake, the main Marine and the one legislator chick.

Eisenhorn and Bequin, Eisenhorn and the one Doctor Chick.

Hell just read a Dan Abnett book.

That would be Gaunt and Lilith, an Inquisitor from the book Ghostmaker. Also Gaunt and the one dudes daughter, because he said something along the lines of "I'd want to but after today I'll go back to being a Soldier and you'll go back to being a Noblewoman."

Oh Larks and Bragg cause you know...

Bragg is dead

Yeah that's why I mentioned something about reading Abnett books for 40k loves stories, usually they are a sub plot. Or sub plot to a sub plot in the case of Caff and Criid.

Spoiler:
Though that ends because Caff gets killed...by a child... he's trying to save...

Um yeah...Tragic.
Really, it is.
But when I said possible love stories I was kind of reffering to 40k in general. You CAN make the scenario up if you want to. Don't limit yourself to just one author like Dan Abnett (blessed be his name).
