*this is a collection of tricks and fun stuff i've seen and read, turned into a story! XD
Pillar of Autumn
The Master Chief was in a deep, cold sleep. Suddenly, something poked him in the side, and he felt WIDE awake. A yellow suited techinician stood infront of his cryotube, and suddenly, the seal lifted and the Master Chief climbed out.
The technician looked up at the Master Chief in awe, then the Master Chief suddenly jumped backwards onto the cryotube, and disappeared when the cryotube door fell back down. WTF?! The technician thought, but just said his lines and went to the door to stand there like an idiot anyway.
The Master Chief fell through the floor and onto some sort of invisible platform in space. There, he saw Halo. Wow! He ran towards it, and suddenly a line of text appeared on the top left corner of his screen. "Press 'x' to flip " Huh? He didn't know what it was, but he "pressed" X anyway. Nothing happened. Aww well. Suddenly, he froze, and a smallish blue box appeared in the middle of his FOV. Small lines of text appeared, and the little blue light moved down to "Load last checkpoint". And the Master Chief found himself back outside the cryotube, looking at the technician.
He followed the technician outside, just to see him get blown up by an explosion. Jumping over a couple of tubes, he ran all the way to the bridge, somehow managing to pick up a plasma rifle on the way. After talking a load of crap to Captain Keyes and downloading Cortana into his suit, Keyes gave him his pistol! OMG the most powerful weapon in the Universe was in his hands! He proceeded out and killed some grunts with headshots. Picking up an assault rifle, he proceeded to battle some Elites. Wait, how can he have an assault rifle, pistol, and plasma rifle at the same time?! Aww nuts who cares, he has three weapons! Battling his way through the ship, he got onto a lifepod, and blasted off into space, towards HALO!!
The bumpy ride down onto Halo wasn't very fun, and the crashlanding wasn't very fun either. Having knocked himself out from the extremely retarded crash, he woke up to Cortana's voice. "Chief! Chief! Are you alright? Can you move?" He thought to himself, If I'm standing up, its quite obvious that I can move right?! He ran out of the lifepod to a pile of weaponry, grenades and ammo outside from all the dead marines. Picking them up, he proceeded to run across a bridge that had no railings.
Suddenly, a gigantic shadow passed over him and a Covenant transport flew over him. Running quickly, he hid behind a rock and started shooting at it. Bad idea. Purple beams started slashing across the bridge at him and he had to duck to avoid losing his head. After dropping it's passengers, the transport flew off.
The elite in-charge of the grunts wanted to claim all the glory of killing the "evil" Master Chief for himself. He was halfway charging across the rail-less bridge when the Master Chief popped his head out from behind the rock and started firing at him. Putting his expert dodging skills to work, he dodged off sideways, to suddenly realize that the bridge had no railing, and plummeted off to his doom.
The Master Chief chuckled to himself as the foolish elite fell off the bridge, screaming all the way down. He then proceeded to blast the banshee frying his ass to hell, and charged the grunts on the other side of the bridge. After killing all of them, he changed his assault rifle for a needler, because the needles were pretty, and moved off. After killing several unfortunate elites, grunts, and jackals, he had a sizable amount of spare plasma grenades in a pile, and decided to have some fun. Firing a bunch of needles into an elites body that was near the pile, the explosion set off all the grenades and sent the elite body flying up, and up, and up, and even gaining a boost from the "energy tower" that was nearby, disappearing from sight.
After commandeering the warthog Foe-hammer had dropped him, he drove down the valley to a large hole in the wall. "This cave is not a natural formation, so it must lead somewhere." Cortana said. WTF!! The Master Chief yelled to himself, a cave with nice blinking electronic lights and metal passageway is most OBVIOUSLY NOT A NATURAL FORMATION! Thanks Captain Obvious! But anyway, he drove through squished alot of Covenant, turned on some sort of light bridge, and drove over and out onto the other side of the "cave". After rescuing a load of Marines, he abandoned the Warthog, and it's passengers, who didn't seem to want to get onto the Pelican, and flew off in the Pelican.
The "Truth and Reconciliation" next!!

*heh thanks for the great comments
The Truth and Reconciliation
The pelican touched down, and the master chief stepped off, while the other marines had to hop off. The master chief ignored all the chatter between cortana and the sergeant that was going on and went straight to sniping the numerous, heavily armed, and completely oblivious opponents in the next area. After putting a armor piercing bullet through each of the Covenant's head, he proceeded around the corner, to see an angry crimson elite level it's plasma rifle at his head. Without thinking, the master chief threw a fragmentation grenade at it's feet, pushed it over, and dove behind the wall. Boom! A cloud of dirt came up and the master chief wiped it off his visor. The elite was angry and started charging at the master chief. It whacked him. "Ouch!" the master chief cried sarcastically as his sheilds flickered, and delivered a crushing blow to the elite's helmet with the end of his assault rifle, killing it.
After fighting through another group of covenant, the master chief was rounding a bend when he saw some tree branches poking out of the side of the wall. Curious, he climbed onto them, and after numerous attempts, managed to climb to the top of the plateau. The view from ontop was glorious, he could see all the enemies from the top, and could observe the bottom of the covie cruiser more closely. "Ooh! Pretty!" The master chief said as purple beams of light lashed towards him from the grunts in turrets.
The "pretty" beams of light ate up his sheilds quickly, and the master chief quickly lay on his belly. Pulling out his sniper rifle, he sniped all the grunts out, and was amused when they fell out through the turret rather than tumbling off. Did dead things fall through objects? He didn't know that. After sniping a few more enemies that were smart enough to expose themselves in the open, he dropped down to the final area, the gravity lift.
A couple of grunts woke up, and started running away, screaming loudly. The master chief fumbled a plasma grenade, and threw it at them. They ran even faster as the grenade attached itself to one of their asses and a second later they were both blown sky-high. Cortana must have assumed that the marines were dead, as soon, a pelican full of marines came onto the scene, along with a covenant dropship chock-full of grunts and jackals. With help from both groups of marines, the master chief was able to eliminate wave after wave after wave of enemies from the ship's gravity lift, and was ready to give up when a pair of hunters fell from it.
"OH SHIT!!!" the master chief cried out loud, giving away his position. "Oh, silly me." he muttered as they charged up their fuel rod guns. Doing the only thing he dared to do, he charged at them, taking them completely at surprise, he circled one of them and injected it in the ass. The other hunter, angered by the loss of it's bond brother, tried to whack the master chief, only to join his bond brother a second later. The master chief swapped his assault rifle for a needler, because, no, not because the needles were pretty, but because the needler itself looked nice.
Ten marines encircled him on the gravity lift, and soon they were all in the ship's cargo bay. Surprisingly, only five marines were with him. Where were the others? Maybe they knocked their heads on the hull and fell back down or something. Ouch.
It was quiet, and a marine made a comment. Suddenly doors started to open, and Covenant flooded into the room. Using his 1337 skills and needling needler, the master chief was able to dispatch all of them, under another pair of hunters arrived on the scene. Sighing, the master chief repeated the process, and gutted them both.
After fighting more and more shitloads of covenant, the master chief arrived at the covenant cruiser docking bay. There, was a Wraith, and lots of crates lying around. Using a marine as a step, he climbed onto one of the higher piles of crates. Strange, the marine wasn't crushed with his 500kg worth of Spartan. Maybe the physical training sessions had been lengthened since he had left the Academy. Climbing up to the second floor, he had to leave the marines behind, he then proceeded with standard procedure, shoot, kill, shoot, kill, spam grenades.
Finally after killing a couple of pesky camo elites, the master chief deactivated the force sheild and captain Keyes came out, talked a load of crap, and the chief managed to catch something, "they call it, halo." Remembering the screen from the Pillar of Autumn, their destination solution then was already marked as "halo", how did Keyes know then? Wierdo, he thought.
After more corridors of blood spilling and skull cracking, the master chief arrived back at the bridge, and saw walking energy swords. Creeping up behind one, he estimated where the elite holding it would be, and gave it a hearty SMACK to the back. Blood spurted out of nowhere and an elite fell to the floor. The master chief picked up its sword but it deactivated, leaving him with a stick while the other elite charged at him. Throwing the stick at the elite, he dodged it's swipe, to find none but the elite dead on the floor. Huh?! WTF?! Oh, yea, these elites are VERY weak.
After killing more enemies, captain Keyes commandeered the dropship in the bay and moved them all off, not before squishing a couple of hunters though. :)
