Warning This fiction contains:
  • Profanity
  • Traumatising content

The year is 2044, as you might imagine technology has advanced. People are people. And the world economy is still in shambles. America experienced a full financial collapse about a decade before. Riots, rebalance, and redistribution. David was 13 when the protest massacre occurred when his mother died.

Of course, the world does not rotate around a teenager. Four years of business college and two good friends and a dream of developing real power armor just to cosplay as a space marine. Of course when you got millions and no real drive for anything else after two divorces. You make it happen.

All David had to look forward to was his five minutes of fame as an extra to the next Halo game presentation. They expected him to wear cheap cosplay. Instead, he brought about a million dollars of gear with him.

All David expected was five minutes of fame before he turns into a bachelor shut-in for the rest of his life. Instead, the Universe got an update.

Witness the rise of the Order of the Free Wardens. Witness the rise of the council of races. Witness the legend of the Dreadnaught.

Technically fun. 

There are some grammatical errors, but doesn't disrupt the flow of the story too much, somebody less inclined to be bothered by it would read right past it.

Space marine who gets forcefully conscripted as a Halo nerd with what looks like his own small nerd team for support.

Give it a try.
