I seem to remember something about living in the Webway so much saps their soul, as Slaanesh's hunger reaches them, even there, and they need to absorb emotion to renew it, lest they wither and die; better they give her someone else's suffering (a strong emotion) than their own. At one point, I seem to remember basically saying that the DE worshiped Slaanesh. Some folks here "corrected" me, and I think I saw some Incubi in my yard, prowling.

 

If the DE actually DID directly aide Slaanesh, beyond I personally believe that she might "go a little easy" on them, so that they'll keep doing things she likes, I believe that the Harlequins wouldn't continue to come to their aide, as they fight CHAOS, and might even become hostile. As beings who reside in the Webway, the DE should make every effort NOT to piss off those who know the most about it.

I think it's more a matter of their behavior feeding Slaanesh regardless of the intent, they have to feed on psychic energy to not die but in so doing they have to behave in such a way that ultimately benefits Slaanesh to some degree.

 

It's kind of like Khorne in the sene that even when you kill his followers he still benefits he still enjoys it, and now that he exists he'll probably always exist because so long as two kids are fighting in a schoolyard and one splits the other's lip there will always be a Khorne.

If you haven't read the Soul Drinkers series, I strongly recommend reading the Soul Drinkers series. In related news, the third book in the series features a group of Dark Eldar who have decided to worship Slaanesh, and have a plan to win her favour. Now go read the book and this will either validate and/or deny your theory.

Oh, how I cannot foresee this ending in any other way than violent sado-sexual abuse on a deified level.

Yep, Eldar.
