The Flood 7: The Emperor's Death Game.

Right, well, for those who are both interested and uninterested in reading, I should best fill you in on what exactly I'm writing about. Around about one year ago, I started a series of stories in which I used characters from this forum and put them into my story. To fully understand this story, you should be well acquainted with the backstory of "The Flood." You can find them in their original forms with the links. [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=8299484]The Flood 2 is here[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=8397250]The Flood 3 is here[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=8788571&viewreplies=true]The Flood 4:Parallel Worlds is here.[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=10005920&postRepeater1-p=1]The Flood: Liberty Lost can be read here[/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=10575458]And last, but by no means least, The Flood: Death Games can be found here.[/url] (Note that there is no "Flood 1." At least, not one that is directly involved with this story.) Of course, there is the Colonel Corbec Club, where you can read all of the stories I'd done uninterrupted. Finally, I may well have some space for new characters. That means[b] you get to be in the story![/b] Well, depends kind of. It's all rather blurry at the moment, but PM me if you're interested. Thank you for your time and please enjoy the story. [Edited on 07.07.2007 3:09 AM PDT]

  • I don't really care. I know that Corbec is a better writer than I am, and I don't know why I have a larger fanbase. But, since I do, I'm content.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] raison d etre Corbec, your stories pwn McGee's.[/quote] I know. Just that everyone loves his more. Which, at the end of the day, is the important thing. And as for the story Mike, it could do with some more improvements before distribution, but it's coming along well.

  • heres chapter one of my story: Chapter One: The fall of a hero. On the rough, dusty surface of Delta halo’s Quarantine Zone A flood jumped from a large jagged rock. Screaming in a horrible tone that hurt Mike’s ears, Putting aside the pain Mike side-stepped, pulling the trigger of his shotgun just as the flood landed next to him, kicking up the dry dust. “Bang” the sound of Mikes Shotgun Echoed though the ravine, Mike waited for a moment listening hard for any sound of life. Were they all dead? He wondered. Hearing or seeing nothing Mike commando rolled behind another large rock. He could hardly see in the amongst the green fog, that the flood left everywhere they went, Each breath was painful, Mike reached for his radio, Sweat running down his tanned forehead. His blue eyes dull in the dark light of yet another of Delta Halo’s nights. “Come in, Does anyone read me?” “This is Spartan 015, Can Anyone hear me? Over.” A faint signal crackled on the radio, “Rodger That Spartan 015 we read you, this is Ship Master Icka 'Ardotee. Zealot in command of the Covenant carrier Supreme Loyalty, Over.” At that moment a particularly aggressive flood tackled Mike Bringing him to the dust with a hard thud and knocking his weapon from his hand, Wrestling the flood in the dirt and dust of The Quarantine Zone, Mike was weak from the previous fight and was easily over powered, From the green fog came the shadow of what at first seemed to be another flood, But suddenly it leapt from the shadows at a speed only one could achieve, that one was Icka 'Ardotee. The Movement of Icka 'Ardotee was like a blur, one moment he was in the shadows, the next he was standing before Mike with the flood dead on the ground. “But, but, you on the radi…” Mike stuttered “All I said was I read you, I never Said I was on the Supreme Loyalty.” Said Icka 'Ardotee in-between laughs. “I owe you one.” “You wouldn’t owe me if you didn’t fight like an old lady.” Smiling Mike Sweep kicked Icka 'Ardotee knocking him over with a hard Thud into the dust, “An old lady indeed” he said while looking down at Icka 'Ardotee and holding out his hand to help him up. Mike looked around him, To his left there was a large rock wall that had a small gap in it that would be no bigger than an M12-LRV, it would be no good trying to evac that way, the flood would tear them apart in the confined area, to his left there was a small cave, the rock sloped down on one side of the entrance to form a sort of ramp, Mike went up the ramp trying to take the advantage of the higher ground. “I ordered my troops to block the way I came so no more flood could Enter the area” Icka 'Ardotee said in his deep elite accent, although he had picked up many traits from the humans his accent had never changed. Mike could see no good option for escape, They would have to take the gap in the rock wall. “We will take the gap in the wall and hope to god that the flood don’t find us” Mike said while pointing towards the gap. “I will trust your judgment, as always old friend” With that Mike jumped down from the area above the cave, his land causing dust to kick up, which further dirtied his armour. Mike and Icka walked though the tunnel which possessed more room than they had first thought, suddenly the tunnel opened up into a large rocky outcrop absolutely over-run with flood which thankfully had not spotted them due to a rather conveniently placed rock at the exit to the tunnel with which they could used to stay hidden. Mike looked around the side of the rock just to get a look at the sheer number of flood in the area, he than turned back to Icka and smiled. “You ready to have some fun?” He asked, “You speak of it as if it is some sort of game or sport,” replied Icka, “Life is a game my friend a game with only one rule.” “And what would that rule be?” said Icka obviously curious. “The one rule in the game of life is that it has to end.” With that mike pulled out two SMG’s and commando rolled out from behind the rock. Mike confidently stood, “Ya hungry fella’s?” He asked in the most intimidating voice Icka had ever heard, but the flood were not phased by it, and nor did Mike expect them to be. “He’s a good warrior, but he’s crazy” thought Icka to himself as he watched Mike tearing the flood to shreds with a big grin on his face. “I suppose I better help him” sighed Icka drawing his sword. Suddenly a rather nasty looking flood threw a grenade in Mike’s direction, It exploded with a large amount of dust killing almost all the flood that were attacking Mike. Icka finished off the remaining flood and stared to laugh. “Hahaha, most fun I’ve had in ages, He then realized Mike was not answering, nor could he see him “Mike? Mike? Mike!” The only response Icka received was the bitter sound of the wind though the ravine, Mike was no-where to be found. hooked yet?
