Reviews for Consequences of Revelation
Jester94 chapter 4 . 9/9
I really enjoyed this story, I hope you intend to write a sequel sometime to tie up the story with Dr. Halsey.
CMVreud chapter 4 . 7/19
Y'know, that scene with Lasky and the other Spartan-II's, that- THAT should have been in the games.
NotRevan chapter 3 . 7/8
Avery Johnson was part of and one of the few survivors of, the SPARTAN-1 program if I remember correctly so technically he wasn't an ordinary individual...
TheRide chapter 4 . 4/14
Brilliant, a great look at the politics in play within the Halo Universe and a strong plot which holds up to the original lore. Glad there are stories like this on here and with some nice action scenes to boot. Thanks for writing!
Hercules8 chapter 1 . 3/18
Nice first chapter! I'm looking forward to reading more of the story. Also, looking forward to seeing the Spartans in action. :)
TheOldMasters chapter 4 . 9/19/2017
Oh, thank you. Finally, a story that makes sense out of the utter garbage that the Halo franchise was descending into, though its only gotten more ridiculous since. And I really enjoyed your look at a far different aspect of Spartan operations (as opposed to the usual 'mow down enemies') - administration and investigation. As well as a glimpse into the different method of commanding now that there are far more Spartans involved. It was also good to see that you sought - and found - legit explanations for the Spartan IV's performance rather than just 'they suck' or 'they can't be as good as the II's anyway, so why bother?'.
Axcel chapter 2 . 9/17/2017
Perfect timing for the Master Chief to remind Palmer that he is officially (and canonically) the "leader of all Spartans". Which means he outranks her even though she is of a higher grade. She has authority over only the Spartans assigned to the company on the Infinity. He has authority over ALL Spartans. Period.
Axcel chapter 1 . 9/17/2017
The SAP-HE was not a dud, otherwise it would not have done nearly so much damage to her arm.
Axcel chapter 1 . 9/17/2017
Fortunately, Halsey is only going to be unsure of who she can trust and who will try to kill her. She is extremely likely to use the Forerunner tech to kill the Storm Covenant and then to simply defend herself while figuring out what is going on. Assuming she hasn't already expected Osman to be twisted by Parangosky, which she probably did and probably planned ahead for it. Anyway, she won't use it against humanity. She is neither crazy or driven made with rage and even if she was she would never turn her "children's" lives spent into lives wasted. The same for her actual child, Miranda Keyes.

Jul fucked himself over believing he could trust her to seek revenge.
Axcel chapter 1 . 9/17/2017
There is an incredibly large flaw in the Spartan Ops. Forerunner technology only works for humans. Hell, the only reason the Covenant managed to advance like it did was due to Mendicant Bias using them to search for the Reclaimers in the hopes of seeking redemption. Which means keeping the Janus Key away from Jul was pointless.
Axcel chapter 4 . 9/17/2017
I agree with you. And don't forget that it would have been easy for Lord Hood or anyone else to remind everyone that Halsey didn't actually break any laws. She was AWARE of the Spartan program and its training and augmenting of children. But the ONLY things she did was create the augmentation procedure and MJOLNIR. If her creations were used for child abuse, false imprisonment of minors, and malpractice of medicine, then that is not her fault and she didn't actually do it. Plus, since she was also sorta imprisoned and kept watched at all time despite being a civilian, she could probably swing it that she was also a victim of false imprisonment. Besides, she could easily convince everyone she was forced (very easy against a a group like ONI) and then laws protecting such people would defend her, too.

Besides, I think the public at large wouldn't be too bothered by it. They are fully aware that the Spartans saved humanity from a nuclear holocaust at the hands of the insurrectionists and aware the attacks became more frequent and numerous after the successfulness of the ODSTs. They might be dumb but when it comes to such an extreme risk to them all they would still agree that Halsey and ONI did what was truly necessary. 75 children's lives for basically the entire human species even before the Covenant arrived.
LethalJustice94 chapter 2 . 8/24/2017
The person that whispered "Oh Shit" probably would have been me..
Divine Protector of Skyrim chapter 4 . 8/20/2017
So I'm wondering why called the Spartans cyborgs? To my knowledge they are not cyborgs, their augmented, but still all Human. The only electronic part of them would be their neural interface and their armor.
1-1 Marines chapter 1 . 5/7/2017
Does anyone else not realize that Johnson practically never wore a helmet either? As a regular Marine, he'd have even more reason to want one given how inferior their body armor is compared to MJOLNIR. Chalk it up to the designers wanting to showcase their protagonists a lot.
Also, Halsey got herself in hot water by hacking Roland and knowingly having a visual conversation with Jul. The fact a Marine didn't smack her upside the head with a rifle butt after she slapped Lasky simply for not informing her about John and all the stunts she pulled is a testament to the discipline of the UNSC.
Also, if Hoya's a Corporal, does that mean Thorne's not even an NCO and thus is liable to being ordered around by low-ranking non-SPARTANs? They are special forces, after all. Given Palmer's title/rank of Commander even though she was a former ODST, it really doesn't add up that they don't have naval ranks but she does.
Oh, and Romeo acts way more undisciplined than any of the IVs given his method of waking up the Rookie.
DragonClanMaster chapter 4 . 2/22/2017
I greatly enjoyed this story.
