* ''Synopsis'': A FanWebComic following the story of Jun-A266 and Dr. Halsey as they travel to CASTLE Base to escape the Covenant during the Fall of Reach. Okay, that's just the direct plot, but it also delves into Jun's past and the beginning of his trust issues that afflict him as a sniper. It's got some utterly beautiful artwork to top that off, and sticks very close to the canon and [[CallBack calls back]] to it many times more than even canon works. It's perhaps the most requested ''Halo'' fic yet to be promoted to AscendedFanon. Can be read at the above website or [[http://levihoff.deviantart.com/gallery/27221463 here]] on Website/DeviantArt. [[HaloAFistfulofArrows And it even has its own page here!]]

* ''Synopsis'': [[labelnote:author's summary]]"Julian, the ineffectual heir to an industrial empire loses a reconstruction contract with the UNSC. Mere minutes away from blowing out his brains in an old hotel room, his mother-in-law Rachel shows up to take matters into her own hands. As a retired Six of an experimental, hyper-lethal black ops program within ONI Section Zero, Rachelís been around long enough to see the rusty inner workings of an unwieldy, overly bureaucratic machineóbeen around long enough to see all kinds of scandals, all kinds of cover-ups. She formulates a plan to save Julianís position and company, and take down their competitors by dredging up details of an illicit wartime deal, a potential info leak that has the power to sink a celebrated, international arms-giant and deeply embarrass both Naval Command and Naval Intelligence.

Rachel has an asset waiting to be manoeuvred onto the game board, to make her plan a reality: proto-Spartan Brooklyn Fields awakes to a different world than the one she left behind fifteen years ago. She has her directives from the domineering Rachel that she is expected to carry out with her usual unfeeling, machine efficiency, and she quickly tracks down her target to an intimate coastal town situated on a Mediterranean island. Acquiring the mark, an off-the-grid ONI analyst named Seager who possesses evidence of the deal in question, should be a straightforward task for someone like Brooke. She's about to find out that her secluded post-war world is deadlier than any alien invasion."[[/labelnote]]
* ''Comments'': cannonfodder14: A thriller akin to spy novel/movies and along the vein of Katsuhiro's ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11347326/1/ Halo-Chimera-Rogue]]'' this vivid story is part character study and thrill fic that encapsulates the dangerous post war politicking.

* ''Synopsis'': The newly formed UNSC Army unit called The Highwayman: 906th Brigade is sent into combat on the planet of Cassandra in order to help find the missing 112th ODST company. [[labelnote:author's summary]]"It's a Vietnam narrative that takes place during what should be considered a "good" war. Those GIs in-country after '68 could ask "What are we fighting for?" but the answer seems a little more clear-cut here when faced with the prospect of human extinction. However, although their backs are to the wall, there is still much more to lose, more than just flesh. (It's also a pretty left-leaning take on Western war mythology and military culture.)"[[/labelnote]]
* ''Comments'': A very vivid story exploring the human condition and politicking in the tail-end of the Great War. The combat and vivid and visceral but the strongest aspect to this story is the characterization. All important characters are fleshed out and realized. Foil for one another and representing the different people that exist in war and how war affects them. Gap-crossing is very much emphasized. Overall its vivid, memorable and horrifically real, a great short story.

* ''Comments'': cannonfodder14: When the first story in this series was introduced back in 2007 it was the earliest high-quality Halo fanfic that graced fanfiction.net; rising above many victims of Sturgeon's Law. It was unique not just because her main character a young female marine but because for a young author not even 20 years old yet to write a touching action adventure romance story of such quality was something everyone was waiting for and was widely praised. Ilmiopassato has continued to write and improve and as of 2016 and is still going strong. Despite deviating from canon a little bit (slightly AU) and unfortunately somewhat common minor military technical/tactical quibbles and lack of environmental and technological exposition it remains an excellent and touching fanfic series I wished were canon. I recommend it to all.

* ''Synopsis'': A young enlistee joins the newly formed Lima Company, there he forms friends and becomes part of the family. Soon he and the company is sent into combat during the night in a little valley on the planet of Zaragosa. Soon they will face circumstances that force them to get bottom of a growing mystery of why they are there. [[labelnote:From FF.net]]"The Inner Colonies dwindle. Mankind's extinction draws nearer as its insuperable enemy scatters and defeats the UNSC with increasing momentum. Now, at the height of The Great War, Zaragosa's colonial defense forces are able to fend off the might of the Covenant and very few understand why. As Lima Company's enemies close in all around them, they are forced to uncover this mystery."[[/labelnote]]
* ''Comments'': cannonfodder14: A very good action story that breaths with the realism and authenticity combined with mystery and drama. The author paces the story well with action and the development of both the plot and characters. With references to the wider Halo universe and fresh original characters and plot to explore, it is a very enjoyable story to read that feels alive and tactile.

** cannonfodder14: The Life is not a perfect story, nothing in life and certainly no story is perfect. It has its typos, grammatical errors, inconsistencies and so on. Grammatical and spelling errors were certainly apparent during its beginning fifty chapters but after that they became less and less noticeable accept in a few cases on occasion. (Non-existent even a lot of the time). It transformed from a strong but flawed fledgling story into what can only be described as a smash hit worthy of the utmost praise and even canonization. I can still remember looking at this story with interest three years ago and then reading the first thirty or so chapters and eventually turning away because of rather sub-par characterization, other flaws and nit picking on my part. Then many, many, many months later out of boredom I began to reread it and after breaking past those early chapters discovered that I had missed out on something I really should have been a part of. The genius, creativity and care that went into this story is awe inspiring. Sure it has its technical flaws (some just due to the Halo universe itself) and other details that I myself dislike; but the action, detail, character development and world building is excellent for a first story from someone around less then twenty years old when this was created. The transition from strong but flawed to virtually perfect was subtle but very noticeable when I went back to reread if from beginning to bittersweet end. It is a story that will leave a deep impact on those who read it. I recommend to all Halo fans.

* ''Comments'': cannonfodder14: A short but very realistic and authentic story that forms part of a greater part of the Battle of Mombasa. Through detail and pacing, the author crafted a focused story that fits into a part of a greater whole picture. A small and enjoyable read to whose that crave detail.

The Elites had pushed the Brutes back to their homeworld, which now is under siege, but their new chieftain ain't just gonna give up. The Arbiter must assassinate him first before the main attack, and I tell you, this story makes us all interested about how it'll end.

** A strong secondrecommendation from this troper. While the grammar is in need of a beta (not because the author has bad writing, but because English is not his first language), it still manages to be quite good and effective. Spearhead Team does, admittedly, come across as a bit more comical and (somewhat) Mary Sue-ish for the setting, but it's relatively grounded in realism, displays plenty of problems that comes from a group like Spearhead acting the way they do, including a ''very'' big case that has some major consequences. As for the UNSC's technology being "too good", that's actually a case of RealityIsUnrealistic. Canon Halo displays a shocking level of CreativeSterility and technological stagnation on the part of the UNSC--''even more than the Covenant in the same timespan, despite the games explicitly and repeatedly saying that the Covenenat were imitative, not innovative, unlike humanity.'' To put this into perspective, the vast majority of UNSC firearms are strongly inferior to the ones we have today, despite the UNSC existing over 550 years in the future and having an incredible 150+ colonies to draw from. The fact that the Pillar of Autumn--a prototype and the sole example of its capability--was the ''only'' UNSC ship in canon that could actually go toe to toe with Covenant ships of its size over the span of a 27 year war for survival really says a lot about how the oversight and problem is with Bungie, not Havoc-Legionnaire.

** Seconded. ''Kyle-091'' reads like a PeggySue fanfic rather than a SelfInsertFic, albeit one where YouCantFightFate; Kyle quickly learns that history has a way of repairing itself. There are a number of punctuation errors, but they don't affect the enjoyment of the story. And there's a minor moment of FridgeBrilliance when it comes to the romance and the Westermarck effect: [[spoiler:basically, sexual relationships with people that were raised together for years at a young age almost never happen. This includes non-blood relations, and explains why none of the Spartans ever get it on. It also explains why Kyle and Kelly get together; they meet as virtual adults, and it's probable for them to develop romantic feelings when they've spent almost all their time with each other for decades.]] It's also just the right length for a fanfic. Slow opening, but worth a look.
** Thirded. This is indeed much better than your typical self-insert. Like the previous troper pointed out, it reads more like a PeggySue fic than a SelfInsertFic, which is a point in its favor to me. Nevertheless, I feel obliged to make a note that grammar (especially capitalization) seems to be a serious issue for this author at many points throughout the story, so don't expect too much if that's important to you.

There are a number of punctuation errors, but they don't affect the enjoyment of the story. And there's a minor moment of FridgeBrilliance when it comes to the romance and the Westermarck effect: [[spoiler:basically, sexual relationships with people that were raised together for years at a young age almost never happen. This includes non-blood relations, and explains why none of the Spartans ever get it on. It also explains why Kyle and Kelly get together; they meet as virtual adults, and it's probable for them to develop romantic feelings when they've spent almost all their time with each other for decades.]] It's also just the right length for a fanfic. Slow opening, but worth a look.\n** Thirded. This is indeed much better than your typical self-insert. Like the previous troper pointed out, it reads more like a PeggySue fic than a SelfInsertFic, which is a point in its favor to me. Nevertheless, I feel obliged to make a note that grammar (especially capitalization) seems to be a serious issue for this author at many points throughout the story, so don't expect too much if that's important to you.

** Seconded. This really is a wonderful story; the only complaint I have is that it's far too short. It's possible read it all in under an hour. Fortunately, it's only one part of a loosely-connected series.[[note]]Search for the author's name in the Fan Fiction section of the Halo.Bungie.Org site.[[/note]] It seems [=CaptainRaspberry=] may hold my attention longer than I thought. -- Medicus

** A cautious second from this troper. While [=TAoW=] is by no means bad (otherwise I wouldn't be recommending it!), there are some parts that are bound to turn others off. Namely, the [[strike:UNSC]] UNDF feels like too much of a MarySue. The technology Havoc-legionnaire brings to bear is just too good: in one battle [[spoiler:the ''Pillar of Autumn'' destroys about half a dozen ships and gets away with the equivalent of a scratch,]] and the [=SPARTANs=] [[spoiler:suffer no losses whatsoever.]] While that's bound to change in later chapters, right now Commander-117 and his friends come off as [[BoringInvincibleHero Boring Invincible Heroes]]. And, personally, the continuing plot about the Spearheads just turns me off. They're too unstable, too maverick, too ''good'' to be believable or even likeable. Give it a go, but keep this is mind. -- Medicus
** A strong third recommendation from this troper. While the grammar is in need of a beta (not because the author has bad writing, but because English is not his first language), it still manages to be quite good and effective. Spearhead Team does, admittedly, come across as a bit more comical and (somewhat) Mary Sue-ish for the setting, but it's relatively grounded in realism, displays plenty of problems that comes from a group like Spearhead acting the way they do, including a ''very'' big case that has some major consequences. As for the UNSC's technology being "too good", that's actually a case of RealityIsUnrealistic. Canon Halo displays a shocking level of CreativeSterility and technological stagnation on the part of the UNSC--''even more than the Covenant in the same timespan, despite the games explicitly and repeatedly saying that the Covenenat were imitative, not innovative, unlike humanity.'' To put this into perspective, the vast majority of UNSC firearms are strongly inferior to the ones we have today, despite the UNSC existing over 550 years in the future and having an incredible 150+ colonies to draw from. The fact that the Pillar of Autumn--a prototype and the sole example of its capability--was the ''only'' UNSC ship in canon that could actually go toe to toe with Covenant ships of its size over the span of a 27 year war for survival really says a lot about how the oversight and problem is with Bungie, not Havoc-Legionnaire.

* Recommended by Tropers/TheWildWestPyro
* ''Synopsis'': "The dream recurs, and each time, there's nothing he can do to stop it. Again and again and again and again. Every time he closes his eyes, all night long. Over and over. It's all he thinks about. Almost like he's the one going rampant." AU
* ''Pairings'': John/Cortana
* ''Comments'': A simple but heartwarming and very well done fic. John and Cortana are kept in-character the whole time and none of them deviate from their characters. And rather than having John get increasingly emotional, the author has him slowly open up around Cortana instead, something that other fics seem to lack. There's no slow buildup over time, either-the author gives brief snippets as both experience love for the first time and skips straight to the fluffy bits.
