Summary: Another muse bit me. Contains spoilers for Halo 3.
A/N: This is another one of those cheesy song fics I like writing for fun. It gets rid of my writers block fairly easily.
I am a question to the world
Not an answer to be heard
Or a moment that's held in your arms
Where were you born?
Halley looked over, squirming in the copilot seat of the Longsword. John looked over his shoulder at her, brown eyes briefly clouded over. Halley could understand in that heartbeat what Halsey had meant about him being able to distance himself and focus on a task, or get utterly lost in it. The larger Spartan sighed, turning briefly back to the controls,
Doesnt matter. Its gone now.
The white haired Spartan blinked, blushed a ripe red and looked away again out to the stars streaking past the little ship. Strike one question off her list.
Is there a missus 117?
That look wasn&

It took three broken bones, eight contusions, one minor electrical burn and an outbreak of Rhienhelsers Flu to end the medical team of the Resplendents tour of duty. Being reassigned to Obsidians hospital was, for most army medics, a dream come true. For Jean Schaeffer it was plenty of overtime, lots of advancement opportunities, and most importantly, a place she could call home. She stepped off the tarmac and reveled at the massive Primary Housing Districts welcome center along with her colleges. Whoever designed Obsidans building structures had been an artistic genius. No expense had been spared. Unlike Reach, the UNSCs first major off-world military branch, Obsidan was also going to be home to thousands of refugees from around the galaxy. Its existence had been relatively unknown in the days before the Covenant first assaulted humankind; it

Chapter Eleven: Harmony in Discord
Screaming. Someone was screaming. The sound was pitched high and agonized, and Halley fought to open her eyes through the gunk that had formed over them as she slept. She reached out to rub her them, and her hand came away bloody. Through a hellish fog, Halley recognized the sound of her own voice. The screaming stopped. Her throat was raw, her head was pounding, and she was backed into the corner of the room she'd awakened to some time ago. Days, nights; time had no meaning anymore. The only cycle was eat, sleep, and survive the torture.
Deep in her veins she could feel the pinpricks of burning heat that meant the artifact was doing it's job. Every time she was pulled out of the little chamber she slept in, she was taken to the room where the Ahzentia tested the limits of the Forerunner device. Her body was covered in horrific lacerations that steadily healed without a trace c

Chapter One: Acquisition
"I swear I didn't used to bitch this much. I used to be a nice, quiet little soldier who did my job and didn't complain. At least I think so. I've been a soldier for a long time."
Petty Officer First Class SPARTAN-292 scratched at her short white hair, looking across the fire at the few remaining marines and the pitiful camp they were calling "home." The skepticism on one marine's face caused her to grit her teeth in frustration. She couldn't really blame him, with her delicate elfin features and pale skin she looked about as tough as a paper bag. Her MJOLNIR armor helped her image a little, but with a teenager's face and big blue eyes revealed she couldn't expect much. A plasma grenade had caught the side of her head earlier in the day, and it was pure luck that she'd gotten her helmet off in time. Not many people got t

Things were going bad for us. We'd lost ten men of the twelve that tried to hold the breach and Covenant forces poured into the gap. It was like a retelling of that old Earth history tale: the battle of Thermopylae and we all know how that one ended. Our own personal Hot Gates.
Banshees flew overhead, their gunfire ripping the trench apart with the sound of concussive explosions. Debris rained like Persian arrows and men I'd lived with, fought with and laughed with were thrown about like rag dolls in a child's tantrum. It looked like I was going to die with them too.
Helljumpers and Marines every man-jack of us were pushed harder than we had even been pushed before. This was one hell of a fight and it just kept on getting worse. I couldn't even hear the order to pull back as the plasma grenade went off to my right killing Johns and Mitchell. They were lost to a bright white light that threw dirt up into the air and nearly blinded me.
I stumbled from side to side in a ra
