1 Work in Gravemind (Halo)
After the Arbiter helps Miranda Keyes and Sergeant Johnson to halt the Halo's firing sequence, he swears to protect them from the Covenant as they fight to reach the Ark. However, he finds he is unprepared for the political struggles and moral dilemmas that follow from rejecting the religion and laws he had followed since birth. As he fights to gain ground, he encounters a strange conspiracy involving the Prophet of Truth and an aspiring Hierarch: the Prophet of Justice. Meanwhile, an Unggoy (Grunt) risks his life when he tries to do the right thing and inadvertently ends up becoming a pivotal figure.
This fanfic was outlined a year after Halo 2 came out in anticipation of Halo 3 and was written as an idea of what Halo 3 could end up like. Halo works released before Halo 3, such as the graphic novel, made it not canon-friendly before Halo 3 ever came out. It should be considered as an alternate universe.
Note that the warning about rape pertains to repeated mention and threat, but rape isn't outright depicted.
