Don't die, Linda by DrAssenov Don't die, Linda by DrAssenov
edit: lightened it up a bit, made it bigger, and moved around the blood trail.

Halo Fall of Reach Fan art.
John does the only thing he can after her vitals flat-line -- seal her in a cryopod until Dr. Halsey can revive her. He and Linda were close. How close? Let's see how well my headcanon is going to work for this! Heheh....

These Halo sketches are hilarious in a way -- I can never draw the same spartan armor twice, because I just kinda BS my way through it each time. XD TONS of mistakes, but just consider this sketch an expression of my stress right now.

disclaimer: I don't own Halo or its characters.

In a semi AU way of looking at things, Linda was never injured. She just joined him in cryo and awoke with him, to explain two SPARTANs in Co-op.

And the other SPARTAN in HALO 2 co-op. She was elsewhere in HALO 3 because you play as the Chief, Arbiter and two other Elites... can't explain the four SPARTANs in H4 though...

This is really nice. I can see that the Chief looks really torn apart by Linda's vitals flatlining, and he is hoping beyond hope for Dr. Halsey to be able to fix her. And I can see that he is very close to Linda. I'm a supporter of that pairing as well.

I'm glad I got that across with their poses! I find it hard to express feelings through MC since he has that helmet on all the time. Glad you support this pairing, hehe!

Yeah, it isn't easy to do that. I really wish I could have seen the Chief's face when Cortana died in Halo 4. That would have added to the sadness of the moment

Wow! I love how you made the background for this. Also, how you made them wearing the new Mark 6 armor. It never makes sense to me when people draw Chief or any of the Spartans with the Mark 6 armor before Halo 2, since that was technically when it was given to him and it didn't exist yet before then, but I guess 343 just retconned that with Forward Unto Dawn.

Still a good drawing, although Linda's chest piece looks different from Chief's, and for a second I thought Chief's hand was her ribs sticking out. Made me cringe for a second! Still an awesome piece though!
