Not sure where to put this - but I was browsing the AMA from Aaron Dembewski-Bowden on Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/Warhammer/comments/7igatt/im_aaron_dembskibowden_ask_me_anything/), and it included this:
Would you ever write a novel about Eldar/Dark Eldar and if so, what facets of their lore would mainly appeal to you? Thank you!

Commorragh. Oh, my God, is there any location in the setting as cool as Commorragh? (Well, yes, several, but Commorragh is still awesome.)
The warring, alliance-shifting factions and cults. The way every army list entry is seamlessly woven into the context of their society, so the Drukhari faction itself is so believable and awesome to write army background for. The insane Webway architecture. The pain-siphoning way they steal life to endure forever, rather than let their souls be devoured by a Daemon God, or - ha! - do something like show some incredible discipline and restraint, walking the Paths.
For years now, I've wanted to write a Romeo & Juliet style story in Commorragh. Not so much about the romance, but the "Two households, both alike in dignity (In fair Commorragh, where we lay our scene). From ancient grudge break to new mutiny..."
Two ancient warring Dark Eldar houses trying to murder one another, while two of their scions try to work together to screw over all their other relatives and go their own way,making their own warband.
It would sell exactly three copies, and I'd be fired for the graphic scenes of torture/evil romance, etc. but it'd be a killer story if I could pull it off.
A Necromunda-style game set in Commorragh would also be so, so awesome.
...um, I also like Craftworld Eldar. I just don't have this insistent novel idea for them, ringing around my skull the way I do for the others.
So... I would buy the hell out of that book. Just sayin'.

And ADB DE book is all I have ever wanted. He better work on it soon lest he earns the furious fist-shaking of some man on the internet
