[b]Fan art[/b] [url=http://insanityxiii.deviantart.com/art/Commissioned-Odst-132265116]Farm Boy, by Insanityxii[/url] [b]Part 1 - Contact[/b] I volunteered for it . Volunteered to drop in a titanium box, volunteered for the most risky job in the UNSC. I volunteered to become an ODST marine, or a "Helljumper", as they were known throughout the corps. It wasn't out of patriotic pride, or anything like that. It was for revenge. Twenty years ago, I was fifteen years old, lounging about lazily in the plentiful fields of the paradise colony world Harvest; I had a good home, and Harvest was pretty much safe from rebels, pirates, and the other troubles that plague less fortunate colonies. Life was good, just me, and my Mom and Dad. Then they came. The day started like any other, me and a few of the other lads going to watch those Marines in training. We were fascinated by them, how they followed orders to the bone, how they acted swiftly and surely. Later in the day however, an unknown object entered the atmosphere. It wasn't like any of our cruisers; it was purple, and made of a shiny metallic element which was definitely not used in any of our standard ships, on closer inspection, it seemed like the ship was curvaceous, although why it was built this way was a mystery, surely it would just slow it down with its un-streamlined shape. Needless to say, the UNSC ships rose up armed to meet it. There were whisperings amongst the local colonists, finally, other sentient life had been discovered. I didn't find out what happened up there until much later, hours went past without it moving an inch, and apprehension slowly crept into the onlooking crowd. Suddenly, the enemy cruiser fired on one of our ships, plasma streaming out of its dual cannons ,that was when the screaming started. Time went as a blur after that, chaos predominated over every other sense as one by one, our ships were shot down by the shear power of the enemy cruiser, as easily as scissors cut through paper. My parent's house was miles away,yet still, I should have ran back, should have warned them; maybe then I wouldn't even be recounting this tale. However, I was in disarray, people were yelling everywhere, screaming how they were all going to die, next thing, the also petrified marines were shouting at civilians to board the ship, to evacuate. I tried to run back to the house, to tell my parents, but a marine in black armour which had the initials ODST printed on the right shoulder pad grabbed me and threw me on-board ,probably saved my life. As we left the atmosphere, I saw before my very eyes blue explosions smash into the once great planet harvest, the UNSC's pride and joy, and my home, and bury it under a glassy field. My parents hadn't made it; they were still down there, dead or dying. As we fled out of the planets atmosphere, and jumped into slip space, I made a vow that day to wreak a terrible vengeance on the monsters that had committed this heinous act. All these years later, standing 10km above the desolate New Mombassa, I'm starting to regret it. [Edited on 10.16.2010 5:39 PM PDT]

  • It was automatically archived due to not having been posted in for a while. I don't mind, I was reading through it the other day and laughing at how poor it was. I've been planning a re-write, though. Those plans may or may not be cemented in reality, but I do have a very big sense of attachment to Memoirs and its characters. I'll get back to you soon.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Wolverfrog [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=38902537]Memoirs II: Fight a Losing Battle.[/url] I haven't completely abandoned it. If I pick it up again at some point when I'm less busy though, it will be re-written from the first chapter because what's there so far isn't up to my current standard. The trouble with serialised fan fiction is that one's writing level constantly improves. Even just a few months after finishing Insurrection's epilogue I look at it and shake my head at parts I know I could do better now. But yeah, Memoirs is where I started writing and whilst not the most original thing in the world it has a special place in my heart, as do all the characters. I'll definitely continue it at some point, I think.[/quote] WHAT THE F***?! WHAT IDIOT LOCKED THAT?!

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Multijirachi I just read this whole thing. Amazing. Simply amazing. You have a talent here. Maybe you should write a sequel?[/quote] He started, but discontinued it after a couple of chapters. I believe he had issues with the plot, but at that stage he also had two other on-going fan fictions to work on (Insurrection and True Sangheili).

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Wolverfrog Fall of Reach actually. If you didn't know, the Spartan who killed him was John, so yeah. I'm starting to get immersed in this again, I've got a lot of ideas now. Also, on a side note, you guys should read new fan fictions others write as well. I would never have got started if a few people hadn't posted on this when I first made it in the Halo 3 forum, so just give people the benefit of the doubt and check some other stories out.[/quote] You mean The john 117? Was this when he was like in his early twenties? When he was still training to be a spartan?
