Ohi there. The username's Minuteman 2492, known more commonly as Lancer from my earlier days. I joined this site back in April 2012 as B1blancer2 after being caught up in a Halo writing fever, and remembering seeing this site years before. When I first joined, my writing was, to put it mildly, less than stellar (which those who were around at the time can attest to), and my relationship with the community even worse due to various causes, mainly my uncivil attitude and continually non-canon or unrealistic fanfiction, which earned me a string of bans, my final one being when I changed my username in an attempt to distance myself from my previous works.
With regards to my writing, I tend to write almost exclusively from the Insurrectionist perspective. With the rebels getting very little focus in the Halo lore, I find it allows me a great deal of freedom, and an opportunity to show what else may have been going on during the Human-Covenant War between humans. Currently, my main project is Safe Havens, my latest attempt at worldbuilding after running through multiple universes, with the rebels again as the focus. Best wishes in your writing adventures!

The AAO Character Board has been created to promote character cooperation between AAO users! If you've got a character that you want to involve more in the project, or you want to help others do the same, do it here!
BBC News is now a joint project between the Tonyverse and Against All Odds! This project consists of daily news reports concerning military, political, social, and other stories relevant to the universe, with some modern-day stories "hijacked" for the project. To check out how you can participate by writing daily reports, check out the Tonyverse page HERE and go to the "News & FAQ" tab for more information. Thank you!
The 2010 HFFAs are over. Thanks to everyone who participated, AAO has racked up 14 awards this year! Special congratulations to Athena32, who outshone the rest of us with an outstanding 8 nominations and 6 awards!
Please check our list of article that need improvement, and put your name down for any articles that you would be interested in helping out with. If you also feel that you need someone to contribute to your work, just add it to the page
If you have any questions about AAO, ask them here. I need the more experienced members of AAO to become part of the FAQ staff; if you feel that you have a fairly good understanding of our expanded universe and can answer questions about us adequately, ask me about helping out with doing so!
Most of you in AAO are still not participating actively in our expanded universe or interacting with the characters/events/places. Contact Maslab or me if you want to collaborate with writing a story, making an article, or otherwise help in ways that will get you more involved with our project.
We're making a timeline for important events in AAO. The template is here, you can add to it (you don't have to place references). If you have trouble understanding the wikiformat for making the table, ask me or Maslab.
I have partially started several stories, and delayed many more. Check out my page to see my fanon list, click the links and read the descriptions if you think you're interested in collaborating with me for writing it.
I am currently working on a large project that will decide the course that AAO will take. As such, no story articles or battles are to occur after the year 2604. However, if you absolutely must have a story set after 2604, as long as it's close, then I am willing to move the date back. It's fairly loose at this point.
