Hello Patrons, and welcome back to another instalment of Trapped in 40k! I’m your guest riffer, Crazy Minh. Joining me today is Major Wade, and we will be diving into the first half of Chapter 2 today! However, before we begin, a few things:

Firstly, I’m dropping XSGCOM: Mirror Image. After the chat with Hotpoint himself in the comments of the last instalment (which I’m pleased to say was very interesting, and was voiced in a civil manner, unlike many such encounters we have had in the past), I had a revelation. XSGCOM isn’t worth riffing. Sure, there’s gaping flaws in the way it’s written, but most of these aren’t major enough to make serious commentary on. It gets to the point where there’s entire chapters where not much really happens, and there’s others where it’s just hard to find anything to critique. The riff becomes more about trying to find something to MST than actually riffing anything of weight. After rereading the fic, I also realised that things I made a big deal of in the first two instalments were pretty minor, at least when I went back and thought about it. I’d like to apologise to anyone who was waiting for the next riff, but to be honest, I feel that not many patrons were really reading it to begin with.

[For what it’s worth, I just checked the stats, and from what I can tell, readership was pretty average. Not fantastic but, for example, usually about as good or better than installments of The Red Queen released around the same time. – Bats]

Critiqued by Crazy Minh and Major Wade

Look, this is a EP fic. Just…just be on the lookout for pretty much ~all~ the triggers here. Trivialisation of something is to be expected. May the Force be with you, Patrons.

Hello Patrons, and welcome back to part two of Eclipse Pheniox’s ‘Trapped In 40k’, a rewrite of the equally terrible ‘Trapped’. I’m your guest riffer, Crazy Minh, and today we’ll be diving ever deeper into the hellgate that is this fic. Last time, a Inquisitor did the impossible task of capturing a Farseer, threatened a member of her command for doing his job, EP fell out of a exploding Webway gate, and we got vaguely introduced to EP’s rewritten harem. Now, let us begin our descent into hell once more!

So… I guess we’re just going to ignore the fact that you dragged me backwards in time to riff this with you, before you actually introduced me?

Hey man, this is a starship. Lotsa impossible wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey bullshit happens aboard these things. I mean, space may be a final frontier; but it’s not the final frontier. There’s always some frontier to break new ground on.

Yes, I am doing motherfucking ‘Trapped in 40k’. Yes, this is the rewrite of ‘Trapped’ by our “esteemed” friend EP. And yes, it is about as shit as it gets. Hello patrons, I’m your guest riffer, Crazy Minh, and I’ll be alternating this with SUECOM every other posting. Hopefully. Anyway, let’s see how far down this rabbit hole goes.

*Indiscriminate staticky sounds*

*TAP TAP TAP* Is this thing on? Hello? Alright, signal looks strong. Morning, y’all, I’m Serketry, and today I’m reporting in live from the Frozen North. My surviving broodmates and I are back at the old hatchery, celebrating our brood-elder’s 80th, and it’s quite the trip down memory lane.

I remember being taught the basics of engine maintenance, proper firearm safety, and how to operate an excavator- that very one, back there, half-buried in a ditch! Skills still I use to this very day. And before you ask, of course we have a basecamp set up monitoring the Crystal Empire, the love capitol of the world. The question isn’t ‘where are we hiding’, it’s ‘who have we already replaced.’

Well, a janitor’s work is never done, so let’s look at what we’ve got here… The Darkening of Equestria, by Shadow Stormblade. Oh, it’s a recent one, too! Early 2017, by the looks of it. Right after… Season 6…

The horror… The candy-coated horror…

Huh? What do you mean I’ve been sitting here for over an hour? Oh. Alright, moving on. Tags, tell us what we’re dealing wi-

Oh son of a fucking bitch. Wha- HOW?! This fic has, like, 1100 words! How do you fit so much shit into so little space?

Critiqued by BatJamags (GoodJamags) and Kane

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with the end of this five-chapter chunk of The Shadow Warriors! I don’t know about you, but I’ll be excited to get back to something that’s not this. Not that I’m the same person as BadJamags, who would be the one hypothetically riffing a thing that’s not this. That’s just silly.

Last chapter, we had a villain teamup of Damian Cole (a vile, disgusting perpetrator of the atrocities which can only be known as “experiments,” for to explain them in more detail would be to forever shatter the sacred bond of nonspecificity between author and reader), Adam Kinsley (one of the most hilariously over-the-top Awesome McEvils I’ve ever seen and the newly renicknamed Miranda Strawson’s father), and Lex Luthor (who’s actually still pretty cool).

#lexwrecks

Anyway, they made some superfurries, didn’t quite understand the concept of cloning, kidnapped Edgelord and Miranda Strawson, and turned those two into superfurries. So, let’s check in on our chapterly news briefing and get started!

As usual, credit to Anne for this.

Hello once again, patrons! I’m your host, BatJamags, and I’m back with more of The Shadow Warriors, the fic that was actually getting better for a while until we took a nosedive back into edge-land.

Last time, Sam Motherfuckin’ Jackson blew up His Idiocy’s arms. Yes, really.

And that’s about it. Let’s take a look at our chapterly news briefing, I suppose.
