There is a legend. A legend of six heroes destined to protect Equestria from danger. But these six are not the Elements of Harmony. They are more.

The Steadfast Commander.
The True Genius.
The Vigilant Eye.
The Merciless Wrath.
The Fighting Spirit.
The Lone Wolf.

They are the true Protectors of Equestria.
They are the Guardians.
They are Noble.


Alright, so here is the story I have teased on my blog, The Noble Guardians! If you already guessed the concept, good for you! But for the rest of you, this is a Halo: Reach Crossover. I have seen a couple fics in which Six or Jorge are brought to Equestria, but they were always alone, so I decided to bring them all together as one. This will follow the show's storyline, with Noble acting as additional characters to the episodes, but don't worry, I guarantee they will be major characters with their own arcs and there will be plenty of original situations. I will also most likely skip any episodes in which Noble would have little to no involvement. (This will be few and far between, one example being "Call of the Cutie" I mean, even the Mane Six are only minor characters in that episode. I'll probably either mention those in passing or have another story going on with those episodes occurring in the background.) Anyway, see how Noble reacts to becoming Equestria's destined protectors!

The writing is good, but I kind of gave up on this as soon as you specified you turned Carter into a pony. Sorry, but I wont be tracking this, but I wont down vote simply because I don't like the concept.

Nicely written, interesting concept. I'm not entirely comfortable of Carter being a pony, but, I'll track to see where you take this.

932282
Yeah, I'm sorry you feel that way. Personally, I'm on the opposite spectrum. I hate HiEs only because they're almost always still human when they arrive. I still perfectly understand that some people prefer the characters to remain human, and I don't blame them for that. Thank you for your feedback.

932319

I would still prefer they remained human, but oh well, I can live with it.

Also write a crossover between FIM and 60's spidey.

932319 Turning them into ponies directly upon arrival in Equestria instantly kills the mood, and I just plain hate it. But that's my opinion. So yeah, I won't be tracking this either, but I won't dislike. Keep writing! :pinkiehappy:

I'm perfectly ok with Spartans turning into ponies. Actually I'm comfortable with anything simply because its easy to put into my head.

Thank you, now that's the attitude I was hoping for! Love and Tolerance!:twilightsmile:

TAB

OK, I'll tolerate the changing of the Spartans into ponies because your writing is better than the majority of the people that post Halo/MLP crossovers. Plus, I love Halo so win/win :pinkiehappy:

I love this because it's the only one that I've seen where it has ALL of Noble Team and they are ponies! I have not seen a spartan turned into a pony fic yet! So by all standards this is original at least a little bit!

You know what, I am actually interested to see how this plays out. I'm a bit of a Halo fan but I haven't read any that features all of Noble Six and I am interested to see how you will incorporate them into the episodes. Keep up the good work.

Jorge is now the most adorable bundle of death ever seen by pony eyes. I also nominate Jorge as Fluttershy's body guard. Come at her now Gilda! MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Okay, new rule. This is NOT a Spiderman thread. I love the 60's Spiderman memes, but this is not the place to post them. You post them here, and I will delete them. Anyway on a lighter note I'm glad to be getting all this feedback, and I hope you all enjoy the chapters to come.

932768

I say ONE THING, and now the story becomes a 60s spiderman thread.

932822
No no, not you! You may not have seen them, since I deleted them, but there were like three of those Spiderman meme pictures. I was not attacking you, honest. Some idiot immediately posted after yours that this had officially become a Spiderman thread. I promptly deleted it.

i like it so far wish it was longer... :D but i like the idea behind it :pinkiehappy:

Why would you write about Reach! It's not even fully Halo canon!

932994
I just... I don't even know how to respond to that. I guess the only response I can think of is that the fine folks at Bungie would beg to differ. I believe that the developers' canon overrules the canon of some expanded universe novels, and that any deviations from said novels is completely within the rights of the games' developers, because they came up with the original idea of the Halo universe in the first place. To any who disagree you're totally entitled to your opinion, but just know that I share a different one.

Spartans into ponies? Aww.. I would've loved this, but then I see comments about ponification. Sorry, but that's not my forte. Won't down-vote but will up-vote just for originality. :raritywink:

932994 cuz it gives us 6 people (now ponies) to relate with instead of one (an ODST or Chief) and instead of having a set of people to learn about, we get to have 6 characters we already know and (may) have feelings or sympathies for. any way to take this it comes out (so far) so AWSOME:rainbowkiss:

gotta admit, this is some seriously awesome stuff. To add not just one piece of noble steam, but all of them is a brilliant idea. Keep goin and stay golden^^

faved/liked can't wait for the next update.

I'm favoriting this for now. I've read quite a few Halo Pony crossovers and they sucked. I'm curious to see if this will be good.

I'm sorry if my previous comment offended anyone. It was just my own opinion that Fall of Reach fits better into the storyline than Halo : Reach.

933235

Too bad that you're wrong.

Bungie, the creators of the Halo franchise (including Reach) have stated that, with regards to canon, games > books.

933299
Yes, but in every other source I could find, the Covenant DO NOT INVADE! They arrive en masse in system, destroy any resitence in orbit, glass the planet, and leave. The only deviations were when they were surching for something, and even then they only avoided glassing the sections that might hold what they were looking for. For that reason, the novel fits better then the game.

I would suggest increasing the space between the paragraphs, but otherwise...

MOAR please.:moustache:

sounds interesting.:trixieshiftright: will track...for now.:pinkiecrazy: Don't dissapoint me:flutterrage::pinkiecrazy:

Dear GODDESS MOAR!!!!!!!!:pinkiehappy:

Bada Bah BA Bah I'm lovin this. :rainbowlaugh:
Please continue this story, I don't really care one way or the other on ponification (except if you had made them all Alicorns that shot Spartan Lasers out of their horns:twilightangry2:) and I would really love to see this continue. I'm hoping that since you plan on making this parrallel to the MLP timeline the new chapters will be up quickly, but don't feel rushed. I still haven't updated my story in about a month after posting the first 5-6 chapters in about two weeks and leaving it with a massive, possible-character-death cliffhanger, so even if you decide to quit writing this story, you've already put a fond picture in my head.
Also:
"Then, in one swift motion, [it] jerked its legs roughly, producing an audible crack as it broke the poor beasts neck."
[youtube=vYKIAGKIB9g]

I don't write comments often and when I do the story either has impressed me or really disapointed me... you Sir managed the former with just mentioning that ALL of noble Six enters Equestria. I was a first curious ahy you didn't have the human tag active but after reading this Chapter it's crystal clear.

Poor Emil, I can't imagine how he'll use his knife now.... unless he's a unicorn then he could still use it, but either I missed the description of his horn or you made him an earth pony (which would fit him better I think)

So... so far we have as follows
Carter Noble One is Unknown what he is, I would guess Earth Pony
Kat Noble Two is a Unicorn and seeing as how she's the Tech of the Team I think it fits
June Noble Three is a Pegasus, Now a sharpshooter needs good eys and I guess while flying he can keep on the lookout for threats more easily
Emil Noble Four most likely Earth Pony, now I don't know what you have planned for him but he really impressed me in the Game (Yes I have it and played it through) So do his (and ereryone else's) Heroics justice and you'll have a fine piece of fiction.
Jorge Noble Five is an Earth Pony no question about that. I Bet he could give Big Mac a run for his money in the size department.
And last but not least Noble Six (keep him nameless that way people can insert their own choosen name in their imaginatiuon, just a thought) he's a Pegasus no surprise there, what with his flying skills with the Saber.

Now I'm curious, will you pair them of with the elements of harmony or not? And if yes then who will end up with whom? Based on their Pony forms I can hazard a few gueses but I don't want to spoil the surprise for the others.

When might we see the next chapter?:trixieshiftright:

933360
Its called a retcon. You don't get to pick and choose canon to your liking. It is how it is and unfortunately there's nothing anyone but the staff of 343 studios can do about it.

934086
I'm actually almost done! Expect it sometime tomorrow, maybe even sometime late tonight!

934436
Second dam you.....

Write more, and just as a suggestion, Add in a line or something when the story setting changes like a -------- or ~ or something. So its like this:


“Are you ready girls?” Seeing her two friends nod in affirmation, Twilight turned and galloped toward the Everfree Forest, her two friends following close behind.

-------

Carter looked at the armored figure before him, trying to grasp the concept of Six, like himself, being turned into some sort of quadruped.

934463
Thanks for the advice. Don't worry, the coming chapters will be longer. This one would've been longer, but it's 3am, so... yeah. Also, good idea with the ------ thing, just put that in now. I really appreciate constructive feedback like this, so thank you!:twilightsmile:

I feel so sorry for whatever is about to get destroyed by Noble team.

Dear goddess this is good!!!! MOAR!!!!!!!!

Professor Plum
Story Approver

"but last I checked you didn’t get need armor when you get there.
I don't get need many things either :raritywink:
Otherwise, promising. Still plenty that could go wrong, so I'll save my thumbs till later, but I've enjoyed it so far. Will this regularly update as quickly as today?

gotta admit, you've got me hooked. With all of Noble team together, I can only wait for the badassness that they will bring into the MLP world. Keep goin and stay golden^^

when Twilight was gathering people for the search party i was like "what about Applejack, Rainbow, and....*realization* NO NO NO NO NOT RAINBOW!!!!!"

make new lines when someone new is talking. easier to understand who is talking. make sure the ----- is an entire line on its own. all i can realy say about it other than media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lxxlopbQZd1ql7aks.gif

good story but it was a bit hard to read without proper indentation. Whenever someone speaks, you're supposed to start a new paragraph (hit Enter key)
EX:
"Hi, I'm Bob"
"Sup" I said. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This chapter has some serious formatting issues. Seperate your paragraphs, please, or at the very least don't indent in the middle of a sentence. It's one giant wall of text.

I mean it, the first chapter was good. This one, complete and utter mess that is hard to read.

Hell, I'll do the work for you this one time.

This is just getting better and better! So let it continue!

Hey there everypony, sorry about the errors in this chapter, for some reason it didn't translate right when I transferred it in. Huge apologies here, readability is one of the things I pride myself on, so this is a real embarrassment to me. But I've thankfully fixed the errors and it should be all good now. Enjoy!
