The Eye of the Tiger
(Scenes) Master Chief crashes his nearly ruined Warthog into a pile of crates blocking his path to the Longsword fighter. He tumbles from the driver's seat and rolls to his knees. He blasts two flood combat forms with his shotgun and then vaults over the crates... only to find that he has landed in a ring of elites with plasma swords. Standing directly opposite him is a Spec Ops Elite with no weapons.

Elite: The time has come to see if you are a true warrior, Demon. Throw down your weapons and face me.

Cortana: We don't have time for this.

MC: I think I have to MAKE time.

MC throws down his weapons and stands upright. The Elites forming the ring roar their approval.

A battle ensues. The two warriors spar briefly and then become completely engaged. It is clear, however, that the Elite has the upper hand. He blocks most of MC's blows and lands at least half of his own. MC gets weaker and weaker. He moves slower and slower. The music builds to a discordant crescendo as the elite kicks MC in the face. We hear his visor crack and watch him hit the ground in slow motion. Through the crack we can see one of MC's eyes... awash in blood.

Cortana: Chief! Chief! Can you hear me?

The Elite bends over the body of the MC.

Elite: Your destruction is the will of the gods. And I am their instrument.

Suddenly, MC's hand dashes up in a blur and grabs the elite by the throat.

MC: It looks like the instrument is a bit out of tune.

MC gets up with a gutteral yell and begins to beat the hell out of the elite as the music builds triumphantly. After a final flurry of punches the elite crashes to the floor.

Elite: Finish me, demon.

MC: I've seen enough death today.

He pushes through the stunned onlookers and limps towards the Longsword fighter. The Elite grabs a plasma rifle, stands up and aims it at the MC's back.

Elite: DIE DEMON!

MC turns and lifts his hands defensively, but the Elite does not fire. Close up of the Elite's hand as it goes limp and the rifle drops. Close up of the Elite's face as he looks down. The camera follows his gaze to reveal a plasma sword sticking out of his chest. He falls dead to the floor revealing another elite behind him.

Plasma Elite: (gestures to the body with his sword) His actions were without honor.

PE nods to MC. MC nods back. The group of elites deactivate their swords and turn on their active camo. They all disappear.

Cortana: Can we leave now?

MC: I think we can.

He climbs aboard the Longsword and flies away as the Pillar of Autumn begins to explode.

This one is just awesome. Congrats!
