''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]].

** And the same occurs when UNSC/Covenant-style warfare is applied to Faerun. [[spoiler: The second battle of Mithril Hall is easily the bloodiest battle is Faerun's history, with nearly half a million slaughtered in a matter of hours.]]

** The biggest hints that [[spoiler: Helm is actually a Forerunner come right before his reveal as Didact, with him showing a great amount of familiarity with UNSC and Covenant technology, and the Chief noting that the interior of Helm's sanctum greatly resembles that of the Halos.]]


Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotSoft: The UNSC [[spoiler: and Neo Covenant]] may be pretty unambiguously heroic, but they are also utterly ''ruthless'' [[CombatPragmatist Combat Pragmatists]] compared to the armies of Faerun. Even some of the ''Drow'' are shocked by the ruthlessness of some of their tactics.

* PragmaticHero: The Halo cast are all several steps closer to the cynical side of the {{SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism}} than the Forgotten Realms characters and it shows. However, the Forgotten Realms characters mostly come around to the pragmatic point of view. By the final battle, the only objection to genecide of the drow is the Gods insistence that they save some of the children, so that the drow race will live on even if the drow culture doesn't.

*** 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.
