Blazer is a fanfic author who talks about himself in the third person. What a snob!



After being rudely awoken from Cryo-sleep, John-117 finds that the Forward Unto Dawn has been sucked into a gravity well, causing it to fall towards an unknown planet. In the crash, he is separated from Cortana and falls alone into the Everfree forest. In addition to this new complication, old memories from a scarred and tragic past haunt his dreams, putting his remaining sanity on edge.

However, he has little time to ponder these thoughts, as he encounters the planet's... peculiar... inhabitants.

First 19 Chapters proofread by Bravo 539 and Shadownamesto.
Credit for the intro sequence goes to Blaze Spectrum.

Current rewrite will not necessarily follow the old story but certain events and details may be reused.

Looks great! Can't wait to see where this goes :ajsmug:

460062Hey Iraqlobstar,give these kind of things a chance.Some of them have diffrent kind of plots/introducing the humans to the ponies/ect that are pretty good.Dont dissmiss it until you try it.:twilightsmile:

I know I knoooowww.
Im just not a big Halo Fan. Hell I haven't touched my Xbox360 in a year!
Im thinking about selling it because it might as well be a paperweight to me.

460077A story is a story,regardles of what it is crossed over with.

I never said this story wasn't a story because it was crossed over with Halo.
All i said was im not interested.

460081And all im trying to get you to understand that regardless if your unintrested into a story(I.E. Me) it can still be a good read or a good way to pass time.

I do understand that a story can be a good way to kill time and entertain yourself, I never said it wasn't
All I'm trying to get YOU to understand is that Im just not interested in Halo all that much.

When I first saw this,I thought, oh god, not another Halo crossover. Then I read the description. PRAISE THE LORD, NOT ANOTHER ODST OR REACH SELF-INSERT. I applaud you for having the balls to write a crossover with the Chief himself, as that is a rarity (geddit? :raritywink:) in this fandom. To make it better, this is the first one I've seen with decent spelling and a grammar structure that doesn't make me want to shoot myself.

Now, that doesn't mean it's perfect. While the narrative is solid and the events of the story are enjoyable, the Chief is somewhat OOC. John-117 does not panic, nor does his jaw drop. Maybe these obvious emotions would be more apparent after being on Equestria for a while, but you have to remember that John is pretty much fresh from a warzone, as cryosleep seems instantaneous to the one who has been put under. He'd probably still be in "nothing-can-faze-me fuck-with-me-and-die" mode.

Still, that doesn't detract from the story as a whole. It's just a bit jarring to be expecting the Big Green Machine to be his normal, ass-kicking self and then seeing him panicking and having his jaw drop. All in all, great story so far, 4.5/5.

By the way, if you want a beta reader or just someone to bounce ideas off of, just shoot me a PM. I'd be happy to help.

Second Halo Fic I like. Insta Fav. Looking forward to more :pinkiehappy:

One small criticism, the opening scene? The whole Chief-as-a-Kid part? I preferred the way that was in the book. Yours is almost identical in its content, but the dialogue from the Bungie version just felt more... right, somehow. I especially liked their whole "'Is he lucky, or is he really that fast?' 'I don't think it matters'" thing (Something like that, it's been a while since I read it:derpytongue2:).

Otherwise? Some serious promise here. I'd love to see how Twi reacts to Cortana.:twilightsmile:
Definitely keeping an eye on this one :yay:

*sees ANOTHER Halo fic*

Oh GREAT, another one. Ah well, let's see how this one goes.

*reads first chapter and is actually not instantly put off*

Hmm... you have promise. I'm going to be watching you from now on... :pinkiecrazy:


Although I like reading some of the ODST ones, I never really found a MC halo crossover that actually wanted me to keep reading.

this shows a lot of promise and I can't wait to see the next chapter.

I really like this one, having the Chief himself in it and all. Continue good sir.

Seriously, If this DON'T include the damn covenant or any other human military units, I might read it. If it becomes the same as every other halo fic's, meaning that the covenant come and fuck shit up. Nope. Not doing it.


Good job. But one thing irked me just a bit. When you refer to the weapon you always say "ma5b" which isnt really necesary, "the weapon" or something like that would help to give the story a slightly smoother feel as "ma5b" kind of draws more focus than it needs to.

Aside from that you've done well :twilightsmile:

So far, this seems like it will be very good.

460077 Hell I haven't touched my Xbox360 in a year!

460062 :rainbowlaugh: That's fine! My Lil' Daddy is still in the works, if that's what you mean. The new Ch 2 will be out soon! :raritywink:

460148 4.5? acquisio.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/success-kid.jpeg

Thanks! I was wondering about the Chief's character myself. EDITZ MODE ACTIVATED. :pinkiecrazy:



And then go write the next chapter because I finished ALL OF THE HALO FICS I was reading, and I NEED MORE. I'll be closely watching you from now on, Blazer. Because if you continue the way this fic is going, you'll be. . .

(puts on sunglasses)

on fire.



Your Pun Amuses US, We Demand More And fast

That was a fast update.
Okay, good stuff. The story actually reads like it wasn't written by an eight-year old, and the ponies' dialogue makes sense. I do find it odd that the Chief doesn't talk, even though they can obviously understand each other. On the other hand, it seems to work fine for now. Also, please do not make the Chief a complete brony. Too many crossovers just make the crossover characters utterly blown away by the ponies, and spend most of the story kissing pony flank. I applaud you for not taking this approach.
Good story, keep those updates coming!

Very nice update, and I must admit that I feel almost sorry for Big Mac now.

If I didn't have a college paper to write right now I'd totally read it.



I said almost felt sorry. Never said I did feel sorry for him. :rainbowlaugh:

Isn't it called a VTOL and not a VTOH?



Another halo fic featured. That makes it six.
*goes to read anyway*

How come I've only found ONE story where the humans and ponies didn't speak the same language? I think it's more realistic and entertaining, not to mention the other aliens from the Halo series didn't speak English as their native language.

Liking what's happened so far. Gone the fairly typical Halo/Pony fic route:
1. Crash near Ponyville
2. Find some ponies. Tenuous peace.
3. Visit Sweet Apple Acres. Everything goes wrong.

But then I re-read the description.
I think this is the first time I've heard of where someone insinuates the Chief has PTSD. Hell, I hadn't even considered it until now, but it makes a lot of sense. The shit he's been through's insane. It's easy to mistake him for some kind of emotionless killing machine, but under that helmet he's still (mostly) human.
Now this fic sounds REALLY interesting :pinkiehappy:

Please. Do not make him fly away when Big Mac kicks him. I feel like I am only complaining right now, but its a solid story. Might want to lengthen it out a bit though. I'm enjoying it so far.

I don't mind halo crossovers so long as they are well written. Note: on the first chapter, Cortana should be saying "We are being pulled into the gravitational well of the planet. That is the proper phrase.

“Man, Twi. I’m glad you thought of this; it’s warmer than a hamper full of bedsheets out here!” Man? Applejack said Man? looks like somepony has been watching too much My Little Human.

:rainbowhuh: One question
Wouldn't finding Cortana be priority number 1 and not get acquainted with the habitants? You know... Yes healing your wounds would be somewere between the lines but WHEN a super smart being from the depths of Reach in a alien structure that held all knowledge of about EVERYTHING that YOU must protect at all cost and not let it go to enemy hands and instead goes to a cottage of a pony to HANG out :rainbowhuh: ... That dosn't seem like the Spartan 117 I know

see lets see 1 2 3 4 this atleast the fourth story I've read where big mac attacked the human wait no this is atleast the fifth

well he doesnt really need to protect it anymore considering the threat of the covenant is probably gone now, the elites are on friendly terms with humans and it looks like the rest of the covenent have probably given up now they probably know the truth about the prophets lying to them all, the flood has been destroyed (so far as we know. who knows, maybe there iwll be some on instillation 04 in halo 4) and since the inhabitants didnt look too advanced then they wouldnt be able to do shit. does that answer keep you happy?

Hah! I KNEW this would get featured. Blazer, keep it up, man. This is shaping up to be awesome. I'd love to read more of this.


The Nightmare? You're talking to ME!?

I've always wanted to be your number one minion. No joke. Nightmare Moon is tied for best pony with Scootaloo.

461063 Yes, yes, I must give you that one but still, Spartan 117 is always on his guard an even if there isn't any big threats anymore in the Halo universe wouldn't he still find that Cortana is a friend or a soldier that he must help? Leave no one behind? Cortana can't realy do anything physically so wouldn't she still need transportation? :rainbowhuh: I just wonder because in my experience looking for a friend who can't realy do anything would be my first priority then hangout with some ponys


We Don't Think Somepony Is Best Pony, All Ponys Are Best Ponys


Well then Nightmare is best entity. MAKE ME YOUR SERVANT NOW
