Chieftana is the shipname for Master Chief John-117, the protagonist of many of the Halo games, and Cortana, his AI companion. Many fans agree that the characters have a deep bond, but not all of these fans see it as romantic in nature.
They share a bond. Deeper than friendship but not a relationship.
I won't go so far as to say that they were "in love" or that John would abandon everything for her (as there is no evidence to suggest that at the moment), but to say that her death wouldn't shake him up quite a bit is to trivialize their bond (not to mention that such a notion goes against what we just saw in Halo 4's ending).
why do you people get all “don’t know how this would work” in regards to cortana/chief like you do realize two people do not have to be physically intimate to have a romantic relationship right
