Je Mourrais (French for "I Would Die") is a Halo fanficiton written by Kavek.It starts out as a novalisation of the last parts of Halo 3. Master Chief must rescue Cortana from the grips of the Gravemind. To be able to do that, he has to get through the corridors of High Charity, former capital city of The Covenant and now just a hive of the Flood, with millions of them ready to tear Chief apart. During his attempts to rescue Cortana, he goes into a soul-searching, mostly about his own history and his relationship with Cortana and if it's more than just partnership. After he resisted the Flood's desperate attempts to stop him, he finds Cortana but she is in a heavily bad shape. They find a way out of High Charity and, with help of the UNSC and Covenant Sepratists, go to the recreated Halo 04 in order to activate it with hopes that it will finish the Flood for good. They activate it and attempt to get of the ring before it kills them as well. As we already know, Chief and Cortana fail to get through the portal and now are in the empty space, waiting for a miracle to happen.Now the original parts of the story begin. The ship with Chief and Cortana is pulled back by the Ark's gravity and is forced to land there. On the Ark, they try to find some way to contact the UNSC with hopes that they'll send some ships to take them back to Earth. They also realize that they aren't the only ones on the Ark; some UNSC/Covenant Sepratists personnel were forgotten by the fleet during its retreat and were stranded on the Ark as well. Those who happens to be on the Ark are Sergeant Major Donald J. Kramer, Lance Corporal Jana Hook of the ODST, Private First Class Lance Briggs, Medic Eugene Roe and Minor Domo 'Ulee Dakol. Together, they help the Chief find a way to contact the UNSC. However, they find out that Covenant Loyaltists exists on the Ark as well, a Brute Chieftain named Maximus and his loyal Ultra Grunt bodyguard Dari. They agree to help them after Cortana proves to them that the Great Journey was false. The problem is that Cortana is experiencing rampancy created by the virus the Gravemind gave her and fueled by her own conflicting emotions.When the UNSC finds out about Cortana's rampancy, they send ONI agent (and former SPARTAN) Jack Bauer to find Cortana and terminate her before she evolves out of control. Given command of the fleet, Jack travels to the Ark to take Cortana for termination and to get Chief back to Earth. When Chief refuses to hand over Cortana, Jack and his own team begin hunting Chief and his allies across the Ark. As if things weren't bad enough, Chief and his allies hear from Mendicant Bias that the Flood had survived Halo 04's activation and is growing in numbers...
