MIA is a Halo/My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic crossover fanfic by Gravitys Rainboom. Spartans never die, they're just missing in action. This has never been more true for Jorge-052 as, after activating the slipspace drive that was supposed to kill him, he is instead flung into a strange world where war is but a distant memory. Will the aging soldier be able to adapt to this new peaceful planet? Or will his only salvation be found in finding a way back to his own chaotic universe?As of 2014, the story is still going strong.
Cuteness Proximity: 052 has this from time to time, noticing how adorable some of the ponies can be. He has enough self-control as to only keep it inside of his head, though.
Deadpan Snarker: Jorge. Celestia, Twilight and Luna also seem to have a little of it.
The Dreaded: Jorge is percived as this by the ponies (at least before they get to know him), due to some ancient legends and tales from ponykind (and many other races) that always portray humans as either demons or rampaging monsters. Needless to say, he is not amused by this.
Fish out of Water: Oh, boy, is Jorge one. He's in a mostly friendly location away from the Human-Covenant War, stranded technology-wise, and at odds with non-pony species because of the mythical origins of the native humans.
Puppy Love: Scootaloo and Featherweight show clear signs of this.
Silly Rabbit, Idealism Is for Kids!: Averted with Jorge. He actually finds their innocence and merriment pleasant, probably because it's a nice change from the depressing situation in which his race has been trapped for the last thirty years.
He hasn't even mentioned anything related to the war to the ponies, so far, in part, because he doesn't want to ruin their more peaceful perception of things, as killing is an even more touchy subject to (most) ponies than it is to humans.
Skepticism Failure: Upon hearing that unicorns use magic, Jorge immediately dismisses the idea as impossible, much to Twilight's annoyance (as her special talent is magic), who proceeds to show him how wrong he is.
Applebloom:Jorge ain’t a monster, and he ain’t a freak! He’s mah friend, and he’s one of the nicest people ah ever met! He’d never hurt anypony. You have no idea what it must be like fer him! All alone, surrounded by ponies who just treat him like a freak. You and the stupid town are just mean tah him cuz he’s different. Yer a…yer a bully!!!
