''Halo: Finishing the Fight'' is, as the author put it, "the result of what started as a series of postulated "what ifs" among the author and his friends after a night spent consuming too much root beer while playing games, and listening to far too much Immediate Music to possibly be healthy." It has since grown to a 700+ page work of fanfiction involving (the author hopes at least) passable attempts at blending military science fiction with high fantasy, alternating between the two different elements trying to understand one another and [[ChunkySalsaRule Orcs and Dark Elves being shot in the face with 26th century assault weaponry]]. The story was completed on 19th of January, 2011, and is available on two major sites. The first is at the [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/threads/aratechs-finishing-the-fight-now-uninterrupted.159198/ Creative Writing Forum]] of Main/{{Spacebattles}}.com with the full forty-six chapters, while a slightly more polished and proofread version can be found at [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4108390/1/Halo_Finishing_the_Fight Fanfiction.net]], which currently has thirty-eight chapters.

*** It makes sense that the UNSC's forces don't take many losses, as the five characters that initially travel to Faerun include two SPARTANs (one I and one II), An AI (capable of analyzing thousands of tactics per second), Commander Keyes (who helped lead the UNSC to victory multiple times with her tactical insight, and rarely gets involved in the battles personally), and the Arbiter, a mighty warrior who used to be in command of an unbelievably huge warfleet. Out of all the people who could have been sent, these individuals would stand the best chance of surviving, adapting, and ''thriving'' in these new situations.

* DoesntLikeGuns: Drizzt is this in ''spades'' (mainly because such weapons make his ImplausibleFencingPowers utterly obsolete). He does carry and use firearms as the story progresses, but with a distinct lack of enthusiasm. [[UnstoppableRage Usually.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Bruenor is the one to kill Matron Baenre, but in the process his face is scarred so badly that he'll never grow a beard again (Beards being rather significant to dwarven culture, to the point that Chief remarks that they'd be willing to give up other parts of their anatomy before they give up their beards).


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: Diadect, previously only mentioned in computer log entries made nearly one hundred thousand years ago, is a major supporting character here. Note that this was done ''before'' the revelations of Halo 4, where he also made an appearance (though in a very different role).]]

Added DiffLines:

** Otherwise averted in the mortal realm, as other than a little light-hearted ribbing, elves and dwarves alike are seen fighting together against the Drow and the Demogorgon's forces.


Added DiffLines:

* HumansAreWarriors: UNSC tech (which is purely human-designed) is one of the key multiplying factors for the story, and human characters make up roughly half the armies working for the side of good.
