The Rage Marines Part II: The Space Marine Paragraph

This is the abridged works of Septerius Anonivious, Chapter Serf and Chronicler of the Mentor Legion, Seconded to the Angry Marines Chapter.

After the breakup of the general furor over the Chapter Master's pronouncement, the Master himself departed. There was a fistfight, as is the way amongst the Angry Marines, over which of them would lead this new Crusade into the Jericho Reach...a "beatin" as the Angry Marines call it. It was soon clear, after several shattered pieces of furniture, bulkhead, and ceramite, that Sergeant Smacker would be the Brevet Captain in charge.

Smacker bellowed from under his battered Mk 6 helm, gesticulating wildly with his power sword for emphasis "WE GOT SISSIES TO SMASH AND ELVES TO ELIMINATE! THEY'RE NOT GETTING ANY DEADER WHILE YOU STAND HERE JERKING! EVERYONE WHO'S GOT A PAIR GET TO THE STRIKE CRUISER!" And with that, each of the Marines in attendance poured from the room, toward the nearby terminal access tunnels. In but a moment I was in the room alone, save for a giant Angry Marine in Terminator Armor, who I knew to be Placidus.

"BETTER GOT TO THE CRUISER TOO, TINKERBELL!" Placidus boomed through his vox. "YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO GO ALONG AND DO THE SISSY STUFF LIKE WRITING AND TAKING PICTURES."

Thinking of the Black Templars' split with the Imperial Fists at the beginning of their Eternal Crusade, I asked Placidus as he thudded towards the tunnels alongside me "Does this mean that the Angry Marines are founding a new Chapter?"

"HELL NO!" boomed Placidus, and then he paused, uncharacteristically silent in thought for a moment,"WELL, MAYBE LIKE A NEW PARAGRAPH."
