Fac Fortia et Patere Master Post

Title: Fac Fortia et Patere
Fandom: Halo
Artist: danceswithgary
Media Link:  LJ I  DW  I  AO3 
Characters & Pairings: John-117, Cortana, Thomas Lasky, The Librarian, The Didact, Original Characters
Rating & Warnings: T, Spoilers/Spec for Halo 4 (See author's notes.), character death
Word Count: 51,000
Genre: Gen, Action/Adventure, Angst, AU
Summary: Cortana's fighting rampancy, the Master Chief is fighting a new enemy, and, of course, it's up to them to save the universe. Again.
Author's Notes: I started writing this fic back in February, before E3.  Although the E3 trailer is referenced, I didn't alter my story's plotlines to make it fit within what we saw (much). So, this is an AU based on the random spoilers, articles, trailers, books, that came out before E3. 

There are references from just about everything: The Fall of Reach, First Strike, Glasslands, the Forerunner Saga, Human Weakness, Connectivity, the terminals from Halo: CE Anniversary and Halo 3, the Forward Unto Dawn trailer and every game from CE to Reach. I did, however, make it "user friendly". If you haven't read the books, there should be enough background information to get you through. (Although, you probably should read Connectivity to make the most sense of this fic.)

Thank you goes to my beta for finding typos, not letting me slack off when I rushed through the ending of a chapter, applauded me when I nailed it out of the park and made sure that John and Cortana didn't go out of character.  Another huge thanks to danceswithgary for creating some epic artwork. My f-list deserves a ton of virtual goodies for having to read my non-stop posts about this fic ("Dudes, this story will never end!!!") and patriot_jackie deserves a special shout out for helping me out with last minute questions.
