I'm not too sure about how this turned out, I hope it's just my dislike for "warfare" chapters (since I find them hard and tiresome to translate) that's causing my doubts. It would really be so much simpler if they were just unarmed elves hiding in the woods and wearing loinclothes...

eh eh eh, loinclothes...

Crap definitely hit the fan for our heroines, I wonder how they'll get out of that perilous situation.

This is what I call an awesome story! Seriously, yesterday, I read all of it. I couldn't stop. Thank you very much for translating it! Really, it is very appreciated. You're doing such a wonderful job. (It must be so long and hard. You must have a lot of patience. It's personally a thing I wouldn't do myself, so really... great job! )

I like how the characters have changed (especially Nanoha. Seems like Fate succeeded to warm her cold heart, haha). I also like how the story is going. It is so interesting. And there are such awesome sentences that they just make me want to squeal. (Yeah, the 'be one with me' was part of it).
Anyways, I'll look forward to the next chapter! :3
And once again, thank you!

As usual, the cavalry always comes just at the right time to play their fine "Big Damn Heroes" moment.

Awesome! This was another GREAT chapter! Can't wait to see more! And I do believe this kind of chapter must be hard to translate, so thank you for your hard work! You did a wonderful job, like usual.

'Be one with the sword, be one with the earth, be one with the air'. This sentence always succeed to make me shiver. Every time.

Lol, I know what you mean. And I like how Nanoha teases Fate and I also like how Fate is so embarrassed. It's cute, haha. :3

You're the author of this novel, right? I just want to tell you that I'm enjoying it a whole lot! (And that I envy your incredible imagination, haha). I'm such a big fan!
And I'm glad to learn there are still a lot of chapters! Can't wait to read the rest of it~! (Takes your time anyway, Crazyla! xD I already appreciate it a lot that you are translating it in English.)

Just three things before the chapter.

First of all, Happy Birthday to me!!! Yay! XD

Secondly, as you now know, we haven't even reached the half-way mark, so believe me, there's many surprises ahead. Be prepared to be amazed (it'll be useless, though, nothing can prepare you to what Nura came up with).

Thirdly, and the only really relevant thing, while not overly graphic there is Mature Content in this chapter. I don't plan on warning you if/when it'll happen again in future chapters, so consider yourself warned for the future too.

And now, finally, good reading. ^^

Happy Birthday Crazyla !

Fate and Nanoha got their "warrior's rest" together. ;p

And it seems things will get really serious, this mysterious empire looks like to be extremely strong.

First of all, thank you so much for putting the time and effort into translating such a great piece of literature for us non-Spanish speakers to read and enjoy! I know how hard it is to translate several-thousand-word chapters to another language (even though I haven't translated anything myself but I just know ok D; xD) so thank you!

The story just sucks you in and I've just only finished reading all the chapters in one sitting haha... I hope I'm not that late to the game. D;

This chapter by far is one of my most favorite (for obvious reason looool) along with chapters 10 (hell yeah NanoFate reunion), 13 and 14 (trust me on this one but you did a VERY good job with the battle scenes. It almost seemed like as if I was really there on the battleground o.o)

Last but not least, if it's not too late, happy birthday! :D

Well, well... It was a very interesting chapter like usual. It was also somewhat funny at some moments and I couldn't help, but smile stupidly in front of my screen while reading some lines. (Like when Fate gets embarrassed and all). And I also like the changes in Nanoha's personality.
It was a rather relaxing chapter, but still very good nevertheless. I really wonder what will happen... Mm... I also have the feeling things will get very serious again soon!

And I'm really glad to learn we still have a long adventure that awaits us, hehe!

Anyway, thank you again for the translation, Crazyla! And happy birthday! :3

I'm sorry for the long wait, I had a little burnout. I'll try to pick up pace once more. Btw, how come no one told me about the big chunk of Spanish text I had left in chapter 13?? If you find such things tell me! XD

Ok, finally here's chapter 16, just a fair warning, there's a rather crude scene, and I mean it as violent and upsetting. But there's also a squeal-worthy moment. anyway, I shouldn't give spoilers, so here it is.

That's quite the shocking revelation for Nanoha.

Well, the truth is that "Alarcas" it´s a invented word, it´s sound similar to "Jerarcas", so I created this new one, like it´s a level above of the Jerarcas. I just liked the sound of it and think about it like it was a treado word that make it to the order languages of Dilfen. But I like your guess, Crazyla :D

Oh, cool. Well, now I know that I did the right thing leaving it like that an not trying to give it an "English" equivalent. ^^
Since you're here, can I ask about "Treados" too? At first I thought it sounded similar to 'traidores', but it could just be me trying to apply my thoughts and knowledge of them to the term.

"Treados" is another invented word too, nothing to do with "traidores", although when you look to their history, yeah, kinda fit it. But when I first thought about the Treados, I didn´t have in mind their whole history with the Sarmios, that came later (it´s the way I write a story, building it along the writing process).
