i'm getting pretty fed up with how dogmatic reach and the rest are.

You forgot that if you look at source material, the UNSC is roughly eight times the size of the citadel species' territory.

Why, it was going so well?

Shame... after more than two years i come across this story. Real shame this was abandoned. It could have been made to work.
Alas, thank you, Primordial Soul, for bringing us this great story as it is. All the best.

I don't know why but I think this kind of fic just rubs me wrong way. Even I just usually cool with Citadel owning Halo factions in certain areas. Like in Arashi's fanfic. Man, the Turians are so badass there and the councillors actually stand up for themselves instead of being pushed around by other races. Maybe its just me but I think Citadel races get short end of the stick too much, including humanity who are judged because of their ancestor's mistakes. though I don't deny that it'd be MUCH better if Citadel races accepts reclamation for geths. Maybe that'd finally shut up annoyying 'Ghosts-of-the-past'.
Sorry If I came off pissy, that's what I get for reading this kind of fic after playing Halo 5 I guess.

I think I know why you stopped. You wanted ME to curb stomp a halo faction that is stronger than the forerunners. However, you couldn't find a way to do it without waking everything to unrealistic levels until the point it becomes absurd. So u quit.

I think you're missing quite a bit in your conclusion. First of all, it's not like humans would be operating the MAC cannons, in Halo AI dealt with all the targeting. This would provide an incredible edge in accuracy over the Citadel VI ASSISTED targeting meaning quite a few of those shots would in fact hit. Especially on Citadel Dreadnoughts. Also, something you seem to gloss over is that most Halo/ME crossovers have either some element of cooperation or at least salvage between Covenant and UNSC affording them either basic energy weapons and/or shields. Which not only would be a huge advantage but the near-instant speed of an energy projector would thoroughly negate any maneuverability advantage the Citadel possesses.
Besides this the relative mass of Halo ships makes them bulky and fairly easy targets to hit. But don't scorn their armor. It may not have been very effective against the plasma of the covenant but it would be much more effective against the mass accelerators of the Citadel. Being after all designed originally to protect against the much more devastating MACs of their own universe during the Insurrection.
So in conclusion I'll say this. Assuming humans were fucking idiots and not only didn't trade tech and other things with the Sangheili and other seperatists, but also didn't reverse engineer any of their tech and killed all of the Huragok who could help and just got into a war with the Citadel like that (Which we know they didn't because of the the Infinity) then yes they would be overwhelmed by sheer numbers. But given any sort of functioning brain and even a tiny bit of diplomacy or delving into Forerunner ruins and archives I would put my money on the UNSC any day. Especially a UNSC/Seperatist Covenant alliance.

This is such an incredible story, I love all the plot twists and epicness! I am begging you, either rewrite or continue, but please don't abandon this awesome story!

Honestly this is the best haloxmasseffect crossover I've read. It's so unique and has a Plotwist around we've corner. And that's why I can't get over the story. When I come across a abandoned story, usually I can imagine what would come next. But with this fic, I can't even conceive a idea of what comes next. Odin can be anyone. It could be the Master Chief or someone else. He'll it could be a precursor! The way you wrote this story leaves it where Shepard, although she seems the protagonist, could die. Or she may live. Maybe this radical group of Reclaimers are actually good or just completely insane. Then you have how it all came to be. Like the Spartan Purges. How did it occur? Why did it drive the Spartans over the edge and what seems to be these Reclaimers?
Your story is amazing. And it's one of the few, actually, the three stories I've ever red off this site that I will always come back and reread. The stories that are so unique and me memorable. One is this one. Another is well crafted and is published every month. And the other gets a good chapter about every 6 months. Yet yours and theirs are on my top lists.
Continue this. I know you are in collage, but dont rewrite. If you do, you will never continue this epic tale.
