Author has written 3 stories for Halo.

As a Halo fan, I thought I'd start by writing a story set in the Halo continuity- kinda obvious in retrospect. Don't expect to see many of Bungie's characters in my stories- I'd prefer NOT to tarnish any auras of mystery and general coolness that stemmed from their portrayal by Bungie in the various Halo games. Master Chief was at his finest in the Halo trilogy, and the trilogy is where he belongs. So there he stays. Do note that characters with the rank Master Chief Petty Officer do not fall under that umbrella- only THE Master Chief counts.

Anyway, I've tried creating settings of my own in both fantasy and sci-fi, but I always ended up coming too close to the material I drew inspiration from. So I decided on fanfics. I'm not an awesome writer, by any measure, and I do tend to wax eloquent, so any and all reviews of my story/stories that say 'cut to the chase' will be treated with the utmost seriousness.

To wrap up: Has anyone kept count of all the original Spartan-IIs? With all the sources of both verified and dubious canon value, there seem to be far more than 33.

The Battle of the Citadel has been won. Saren Arterius is dead. Commander Shepard is dead. Garrus Vakarian isn't. Alone on Omega among slavers, murderers, mercenaries, insane warlords and the worst of the galaxy's criminals, he does the only thing he can: declares war.

The Survivors of Gamma Company by TheAmateur reviews
