Fridge Brilliance

  • After The Reveal in Toy Hammer, a fic about Warhammer 40,000 factions being transported to Terra in the year 2009 and then shrunk down to Fun Size proportions (albeit with functional weapons), we see that the God-Emperor of Mankind is now a cute albeit creepy young girl, who is 10 years old at most. Fridge Brilliance occurs when you realize that ALL characters from the Warhammer 40,000 setting have been shrunken down to Fun Size; even the great Emperor, Lord of Terra (AKA The Emma-peror.
    • A smaller double-dose is taken from Ishabeth exorcising the Sorcerer. Michael is there, with her, when she recites a 'Litany of Exorcism' that resembles a child's rhyming poem. Fridge Brilliance hits you when you realize a possible cause for this: Wouldn't reciting a child's poem invoke memories of one's own childhood? Those times where there were little cares in the world (relatively speaking. This is Warhammer 40k we're talking about here), and from which one could logically draw strength? The second dose is taken when things suddenly cut from Ishabeth back to the in-between Void. Why? Because she just auto-exorcised. That would mean that EVERY foreign entity would be purged, including Michael.
