Warnings: Very, very AU. If that sort of thing scares you, then this isn't the story for you. Set before the events of Halo: CE.
Summary: The UNSC is fighting a failing war against the Covenant. Strongholds have been taken, hope is starting to fade. The only promising signs that the UNSC would ever would be able to stand against them are Halsey’s Spartans. Now, Cortana, Earth's first human-AI hybrid, has just been assigned to work with the Master Chief to try to stop the power that threatens to overtake the world and destroy those who will not follow them.
Author's notes: A big huge thank you for my f-list who listened to me moan and groan for months about this story. Thanks to [personal profile] vangirl for organizing the challenge and a HUGE thanks to my media creator, [personal profile] penny , for all the awesome goodies!
