Thanks a lot for your work Sword-Team!

This is one of the best Nanoha fanfics I have read, I recommend it to everybody who wants to read a nicely written story, and if you like NanoFate it will be twice as good.

The fic has now about 187,919 words with 22 chapters and still going strong, so you will have fun for looong time. Nanoha and Fate don't meet during the first pair of chapters in case that you're worried about that, but there will be NanoFate and it will be epic, as epic as the story behind it.

Yes, of course it's NanoFate ^^
Their relationship is not rushed though, so you will have to wait a couple of chapters to see how Fate gets Nanoha's trust and how they start falling in love.

Both, NanoFate and FateNano ;), althought, for the most of the time, the story is writen from Fate point of view, but sometimes is Nanoha point of view and from time to time, others characters

Mm..., well, what to say... A LOT OF THANKs for transleting my story ^^, and thanks for your hard work, I know I use some "technical or specialized" words and it is not easy to translate, plus, it´s a long story with long chapters. Somehow, it was amazing (and very interesting) to read the prologue in English (wow, the maxim of Arf and the Brotherwood sound really good in Englis xD).

Well, thanks again to the translation team, ZeroVirus, Nanoha-san and Captain Reo ^^, and I hope this project continues (cause, it is exciting taht one of your fanfics is translating into another language ^^).

Thanks Eletale and Monichanz ^^, I´m glad that you are enjoying my story ^^. Right now, I´m writing chapter 22 (8 pages and adding more xD).

And for those that follow the fanfic in Engish, here is a link to the map from Efan lands (so you can read the next chapters without lost xD):

Some names are in Spanish, but you can understand the cities, rivers and kingdoms names, because they are all invented by me (although, well, my handwriting is horrible x_D)

I'm glad everyone's enjoying the translated fic in English. I was actually worried on how it turned out, but I'm glad you guys liked it. I am working on the first chapter as we know it, shouldn't take much time, since I have valuable help. (Captain Reo) And I already have other chapters as well to start translating, thanks to the help of Zerovirus.

Thanks you Nura, for letting us translate this awesome fan fiction, it really is quite an honor to translate this, I even, been reading it in Spanish too :D Chapter 5! (I'm going to catch up to you Moni-chan! ;))

Hehe, I hope we, Fire Team Zero Comp. (FTZ) will be doing this, hopefully, for as long as the story progresses.

Also Nura-san, thanks for the map, it gives us, or me, a better understanding on the cities and kingdoms~ :D

Thank you ^^.

Well, in the Spanish version, at the beggining I comented that I chose to change a little Nanoha and Fate´s roles, so Nanoha had have the sad and hard past, while Fate had have a good childhood (of course, Precia and Alicia have been died, but still, she had have a good time with her new mother and brother). In any case, they both will be developed with the story.

Finally I'm up to date with the most recent chapter, which means I hit the depression point of not knowing what will happen next T-T

Spoiler:
It certainly got even more epic than I ever imagined, and the whole siege scene was pure win: I felt as excited reading it as if I was there myself. And well, the Nanofate ranks so high in my list that I don't even have to name it anymore XD.

Take your time to keep up such great work and wonderfull storytelling.

So many fanfictions, so little time XD

Sadly for me reading spanish version is like reading japanese manga, I can't understand anything, well maybe few words here and there.
So yeah I hope another chapter of this great story in english will come soon!

Whoooooooo! You made a lurker come out of hiding!

That was wonderful. Detailed enough I can almost picture it happening and plenty of suspense to keep the reader wanting more.

Thanks to Nura and the translators. Although I did notice a number of grammar mistakes and places where the translation could be tweaked to flow better. I don't mind helping with quality check if you don't already have one, but it might be better to find one who can understand spanish.

Coz this fic needs to be perfect.

Yeah, I'm sorry for that, in some parts i had to "weak" the translation based on that some words didn't have meaning in english. nanoha-san and captain reo are trying their best to solve my mistakes and i will try not to make so much T_T, anyway thanks to Nura for leting us translate the fic, is really good, and thanks to nanoha-san and captain reo for offering themselves to fix my mistakes XD.

I really don't envy your work Virus. The chapters are very long and later on the language used cannot be easily translated unless you know quite a bit about medieval equipment or have played Diablo II.
Anyway, even though I'm not that good at translation-making, please feel free to tell me if there is something I can do to help with that.

Edit: Uh... the whole translation thing was dropped, right?

So many fanfictions, so little time XD

emmm no? there are some chapter translated, but the edit is taking some time, so don't worry, it will come eventually XD remember that the chapter are really long, we are talking about 18 microsoft word pages each chapter, so let's just wait XD
