I had a bizarre dream about a Nanoha movie that seemed like it was like a real Nanoha movie that I would see on the big screens or at least be an OVA and I decided to share this with all of you. Take note this was just a random dream I had so whatever happened in it is not my fault so this might generate mix opinions and that the Materials make appearances but they aren't ACTUALLY the Materials so that alone would make Seikou and Bard might not like this but who knows.
It takes place with with Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate as teenagers before the starting events of StrikerS and while Materials' lookalike's had a role in it, mainly Levi's lookalike has a key point in this story.
It also centered around an abandoned school and was in ruin and hasn't been taken down due to being cursed apparently.
One day Nanoha is out on a walk and happened to arrive near the school, and then she heard a laugh coming from the school and so she decided to check inside to see who it was. She goes inside to see that the inside was completely intact as if nothing ever happened inside of it and students were coming and going doing their usual school stuff. Nanoha tries to talk to the children but cannot do so since they are actually illusions. However, one girl was able to notice Nanoha and interact with her. That was Levi, I haven't gotten a different name for the Materials in this so lets just call them by their names.
Levi is under the complete impression that her school life is real since she can interact with everything, getting new and different lessons everyday and even eat the food there. Nanoha had to go after a while of socializing with Levi and told her she will visit again but told her to not telling anyone about this, since the illusionary students might think strangely if there are told of someone who has came into the school that only Levi can see.
Nanoha reported this to the TSAB and they were surprised about this and made some theories of regarding the situation of the school. They then learned that it was an illusionary world that only the host can control and interact with, that being Levi. Nanoha does return quite a bit to socialize with the child, finding out she herself is real and lived in this illusion world. She tries to convince Levi to come with her to the outside world but she refuses, and after more visits she even tried to tell Levi that the world she lived in was fake to which she denies so more.
Nanoha is meets 2 strange people ( Materials S and D as adults ) warning her to not let Levi leave the school and that she and the illusion world were an experiment. They tell her that she is an interesting being that was somehow created asexually with the power to create real life illusions that are interactable as well as the ability to take anyone's device and use it as her own and even know all the spells it used and perform them perfectly.
Nanoha disregarded this warning, not wanting the girl to be an experiment and tried even more to convince Levi about herself and the illusion world. Levi was walking around with her school lunch at the time and when she was being told all this again she kept refusing but with an attitude, she didn't want to talk to Nanoha anymore and tried to run off. Nanoha tried to stop her saying it was reckless and she would fall, and of course she does fall and drops her lunch and went into one of the other illusion students and to Levi's horror, she somehow phased through her.
The awful truth revealed to her, Levi breaks out in tears knowing her life was a lie, she looks at her ruined lunch and then turns to Nanoha and yells at her telling her to go away and which Nanoha does, feeling to leave her alone for now. Which was a bit of a mistake. Levi after sitting there for a while while everyone walks by around not noticing her or her lunch, the 2 people from before approach Nanoha while she is with Fate and Hayate and scolded her for ignoring their warning and tried to get Levi out.
Levi then stands up and leaves the illusionary world and the school to see that Nanoha was right even more. She goes insane and yells loudly and assumes a a barrier jacket like Fate's Sonic form and flies up and starts to destroy everything. Nanoha, Fate, Hayate, her knights and other random mages arrive to stop her, Nanoha tries to talk sense to her but its all falling on deaf ears as Levi attacks Nanoha without warning.
Fate blocks Levi's attack and Levi steals Bardiche and uses it with ease. Levi gives everyone a lot of trouble by perfectly using the devices she steals on everyone, and soon they came up with a plan. They purposely get their devices stolen again to distract her as they then attack her with strong attacks like the Divine Buster and such.
After a while of doing this repeatedly and Levi not understanding it was all a trick, Levi is left weakened but still insane wanting to take them down and keep destroying everything since she lost everything. But then, Nanoha binds Levi and telling her she hasn't lost everything, she can have more like a real life with real friends and such all while she is charging up her signature spell. Levi takes these words in and shows some interest in it but soon disregarding it and she tries to break free in rage to no aveill and then is shot by the Starlight Breaker.
Levi falls to the ground and everyone was too tired to go and catch her, Nanoha goes down to her and sees Levi barely conscious with her sanity back asking if she could have a real life with real friends and real strawberry milk to which Nanoha smiles and nods while saying yes. Levi barely stands back up and the 2 show up again to take back Levi and put her back in the illusion world and erase her memory of the current events that happened so she doesn't remember any of this and can resume being a mindless experiment.
Nanoha gets mad at this and wanted to arrest them but is too weak to do so, but Levi on the other hand goes into a rage, recognizing them for doing this to her and takes Bardiche again, getting a sudden burst of energy and stamina from the rage transforming Bardiche into Zanbar Form and dashes at the two and kills them. Levi was left completely tired and pased out afterwards.
Afterwards Levi enjoys her new real life and loves drinking real strawberry milk and sociallized with Nanoha and co. after a few weeks but has been feeling weird. It is revealed after scan that Levi is bound to the illusionary world as part of the experiment and if she remains outside of it, it will disappear and she will die.
Levi has to be brought back to the illusion world and it has to be sealed away temporarly until a way to break the bond can be found. Nanoha refused to do so at first saying she can be outside of it and they can still find a way to free her soon, but they tell her it will take a long time to figure out, and she would be dead by the time they would find a way. Nanoha struggled with this until Levi told her it was okay and that she will return to the illusion world.
So before Levi returns to the illusion world, she spends the next day from dawn to dusk with Nanoha and co. to make memories to keep and remember for when she goes back to the illusion world, and when everything was over Nanoha and Levi returned to the school and goes inside.
Levi's school uniform appears on her and she and Nanoha talk for a bit saying that one day she will be free and have a complete true life, and Levi replies by saying she already has a real life just be interactng with Nanoha and having a good few weeks of freedom in the real world. Nanoha smiles at this response and the two walk back to where Levi fell earlier and sees that her lunch from before is still there and ruined. Levi gasps for a second before Nanoha tells her to pick it back up and soon smiles when the lunch changes to look good as new.
Nanoha then tells Levi that they will meet again someday and Levi nods in response and just before she walks away Nanoha winks one eye, puts her finger to her mouth and goes "shhhh" just like at the beginning of the story. Levi chuckles and does the same before saying in a light voice: "I have to keep quiet about this." since the illusion students would still not believe it and act strange.
Levi then runs off to the cafeteria and soon the illusion world is sealed away as it fades away and Levi disappears, the inside of the school is then back to its ruined state as Nanoha's smile drops to a frown and cries a bit since Levi is trapped forever in the illusion world until a way to free her is found.
Nanoha leaves the ruined school and Fate and Hayate are there waiting for her to confort her saying they truly will meet again and next time. She will be free. Nanoha then smiles again and nods and then it faded to black.
So pretty much that was it, please tell me what you thought about this. Whether you like it or hate it, it doesn't matter since this kind of thing makes mixed opinions and it was merely a dream of mine.
I didn't like how the other materials just kind of got killed of and the whole device stealing was a little odd an kinda confusing. But the over all concept is actually kind of interesting.
This remind me of a Nanoha dream I had recently, sadly I can't really remember much about it other than that it was a alternate version of A's or set around that time.
Fair doos, just stating my thoughts on it. Honestly amazed that you remembered the dream this vividly.
It does kinda sound like something the creator of the series would make. I'd totally watch it if it were real.
On the subject of Nanoha related dreams (not sure this belongs here but didn't feel it warranted a new topic for it and I felt you all might get a kick out of it). I had an interesting SignumXFate dream last night, with me as Fate (somewhat weird what with me being male and). Basically consisted of Fate and Signum on a park bench (in barrier jackets which is odd now that I think about it, Fate was in Sonic Form in case you wanted to know). Then Fate started clinging to Signum's arm, to which Signum responded by getting up and picking Fate up in a bridal carry. Then the dream of course cut out just as it was about to get good. I think what this dream is telling me is that I want to be a cute little lesbian girl and sadly I can't say I disagree.
