A Vindicare assassin is sent to kill Eldar Farseer Taldeer, who is wounded following a battle. But despite all his conditioning, when he has her in his sights he finds that he can't pull the trigger, and instead saves her. Together, they try to survive on the run, confront their inner demons, and answer the question of if love can bloom between two races who've hated each other for millenia.
Love Can Bloom is a very well known fan work for Warhammer 40,000, and can be found here. LIIVI and his relationship with Taldeer has essentially become part of the greater 40k fanon, and he's even been quoted in Dark Heresy: Acension ("One or a thousand, I will kill them all").
