Unforgiving V: Rage
The droids became scrap metal in an instant. Their armor melted and innards exploded as the beam pierced the entire firing squad. The remaining hostiles turned towards Nanoha's position and opened fire. Energy shots glanced off the building while Yuuno summoned a powerful barrier, protecting them on the inside.
"Unforgiving," Nanoha said, relaying to the others while she remained crouched down behind cover, "full on assault at my position. Be careful, Fate is among them. Kill them all."
She stood up once the fire lulled down a little and unleashed another Buster, taking down a few other droids. Those who survived regrouped and took defensive positions amongst the rubble while the humanoid dragged Fate away towards another building.
"Don't let him escape!" Nanoha roared to no one in particular. He wouldn't get away. Not this time. They'd save Fate.
Zafira was the first to arrive. He struck down in the middle of a small squad, covering them in dust, and started tearing them to pieces with his bare hands. Signum and Vita arrived a moment later, striking down ahead of the humanoid, blocking his path. Another squad of droids stood between them, but Vita crashed into them, using her armor as a blockade. Their fire went wide as they tried to hit her before she reached them. Signum supported her with ranged spells while Vivio appeared behind a building, punching through a couple of droids still standing on watch. Her fist, powered by magic, ruptured the droids' chests, debris flying everywhere.
Dust and the loud noise of battle filled the small playground. It was starting to get hard to see anything from Nanoha's position. "I'll move down there, Yuuno. Stay here and provide support."
She jumped down from the apartment and onto the playground, firing off an Accel Shooter as she did so. The beams tracked the nearest targets and destroyed them in an instant, resuming the hunt for more targets while Nanoha walked towards the humanoid. Her armor glowed as it glanced off weak arms fire from somewhere to her left, but she kept her eyes focused on the humanoid. It was all that was in her sight, with a killing intent so strong she surprised herself. She, Fate and the humanoid became closed off from the fighting going on around them, sounds of battle drowning in her own heartbeat.
"Captain Takamachi," the humanoid said. "I have been expecting you."
"Expecting me?" She felt enraged at his lax attitude. They were in the middle of a battle and he treated it as an executive meeting. "And how do you know my name? Who are you?"
"So many questions. I am Zealot General Manez Zelaar, and it is none of your concern how I get my information." He looked at Fate, rustling her shoulder. She let her head dangle, looking downward. "You have come for her, yes? A friend of yours or... maybe something more..."
"Let her go."
"You have to make me do that, but judging from the strength of your fellow mages I have had the pleasure of defeating in battle so far, I am not that worried." A shimmer appeared around his body, hovering close to his armor. "Still, I am known amongst my peers for having a very curious mind so I guess I should give you a chance. Simply to see how you stand up against me."
Nanoha sneered. "You might be surprised."
"Oh? You have an attitude the others did not. Come, then. Fight me to the death."
He pushed Fate to the side, snaring her in some kind of magical bindings that had an odd resemblance to spells in Nanoha's own arsenal. She didn't let her mind waver too much on it, though, and attacked immediately. She went in close, using close range attacks to gauge his defenses. Zelaar responded by taking the attack head-on with a smile. His shield flickered for a moment, but didn't break.
Nanoha, realizing he probably planned to attack her if she continued, disengaged and leapt backwards, throwing several beams at him as she did so. Each beam seemed to bend around him, missing and exploding behind him. His shield didn't even waver.
"My turn," he murmured, smiling. He rose one arm, palm facing towards Nanoha, and unleashed a dozen smaller beams originating from his hand. Each beam spiraled out of control by their own, taking a separate different path before homing in on Nanoha. She defended with a simple barrier at first, blocking half of them. Her barrier suffered some damage, but didn't break. The remaining ones broke off their attack and tried to go around her, striking her in the back.
With a leap upward, she threw her body upside down and avoided their initial swoop. Using the momentum, she flew into the sky and shot the remaining beams down with Accel Shooter.
Weak, but fast attack,
she thought, looking down at Zelaar.
He fights a little like a mage. If he can fly--
Her answer came when Zelaar shot up and aimed a fist towards her midsection. She flared her barrier a fraction of a second before he hit, but the sheer force behind his punch broke through, shattering the barrier, and touched her armor. It threw her further upward, dazing her for a moment. She had trouble breathing, her heart racing as it tried to catch up. Sensing something approaching, she flew to the side and avoided another punch. Both of them came to a standstill in the air, observing each other. Zelaar still smiled.
What is with this guy,
she thought focused. Working in an adrenaline-fused high, her brain sped up and went through possible moves and tactics that stood a chance of beating him. The one viable option she knew so far was to use everything she had against him.
Beams and barriers. They traded blow for blow, beam for beam, swooping past each other high above the playground where the fighting had almost stopped. She wasn't aware of it, focused entirely on Zelaar, her eyes tracking him no matter where he was. Her barriers started to weaken more and more and she started to try and dodge with speed instead. His own beams started to become slower and more predictable. Both of them were starting to tire out, lacking the energy to go full out. A show of strength had become one of endurance, and the outcome was still undecided.
Nevertheless, Nanoha still had the disadvantage. She had noticed something in the fight and that was that Zelaar hadn't been tired before starting it. Half a night's sleep hadn't been enough for Nanoha to replenish all of her mana and the little supplies she had left dwindled for each attack. Her Purge Suit had long since stopped its infusion, having run out several minutes ago. It was a losing battle unless she could put an end to it now.
It's quiet below me,
she thought, throwing a glance downwards. She saw a few scuffles here and there, but nothing major.
"Vivio! A little help, please," she said into her comms.
Zelaar grinned. "Calling in reinforcements? I was right about you! Dishonorable heretic!"
"There is no honor in this war..." Nanoha muttered just as Vivio shot up from below and delivered a blow to Zelaar's back. He grunted, swore, and threw a few beams her way, but they didn't have the power to catch her. Vivio orbited him, waiting for another chance to strike and at the same time drawing his attention for a second.
Which meant the window of opportunity presented itself. Raising Heart extended, adding on modules on Nanoha's command. The magical residue left behind, plentiful enough to make up for her own low mana levels, started to drift towards her, glowing. The air itself warped a little.
It would be a weak one regardless since she couldn't charge it up to its full potential, but it had to be enough. The thrusters on her ankles activated, shooting her forward with Raising Heart pointed towards Zelaar. He started to turn around, anticipating it. His shield shimmered for an instant. He grinned.
His shield broke as Raising Heart pierced through it, continuing to his armor, melting that as well, before rupturing his stomach and burrowing through him like a lance. His eyes widened in shock before the spell activated while the device was stuck inside him and a white light swallowed him with a roar. Nanoha didn't look away. She forced herself to watch as the energy blasted out from his back, disintegrating his insides and melting his flesh.
Then it was over, the beam fading. What remained of Zelaar slid off Raising Heart and plummeted to the ground where his body landed with a sickening
on the broken swings. His upper body pierced itself upon the metal bars, while his lower body dangled in pieces of flesh just above the ground. Blood flooded from the corpse, forming a pool. His black eyes remained open, his mouth frozen in a wide grin as the mask had been ripped off.
Nanoha landed in the middle of the playground, forcing herself to stand upright. Her legs shook, muscles screaming, but her head remained clear. She didn't look at the remains of Zelaar and instead approached Fate who lay on the ground. The bindings had disappeared when Zelaar had died and she helped her to her feet, pulling her into a tight embrace. They stood there for a while, Nanoha feeling Fate's warmth and heartbeat. The others gathered around them, having finished off the remaining drones. None of them had sustained any visible injuries.
After a few minutes of silence had passed, Nanoha withdrew a little and looked Fate over. Her chaotic hair had been burnt in some place, but that was nothing compared to the damage to her face. This close the scorch marks looked worse and she could see that some of her teeth had been extracted, leaving swollen gums behind. Blood had at some point formed at the corner of her mouth, trailed down her cheek and left a red trail mark. She would need advanced medical attention if she stood a chance of recovering entirely from her injuries, and that didn't include the damage Nanoha couldn't see.
"I'm so happy you're okay," Nanoha said with the softest voice she could manage. She didn't want to ask the next question lingering on her tongue, but she knew she had to. The question had been waiting ever since she'd first seen Fate with Zelaar. "Where's Caro and Erio? Are they somewhere around here, in another camp?"
Fate disengaged from the hug and stared into Nanoha's eyes. Her lower lip started to quiver as she said, "Dead." She fell to her knees, grabbing onto Nanoha's armor. Tears dripped down on the ground, darkening it. "They are dead because of me. Because of that woman. Dead. Gone."
Nanoha stood still in silence, looking down on her friend. She was too shocked to find the right words. She tried to process it while Zafira stepped forward and knelt beside Fate, putting a hand on her shoulder.
"Fate. What woman?"
She shook her head, lost. "Lord Veena. I have to kill her. Nanoha!" She stood up again, grasping Nanoha's shoulders. "We have to kill her. She was here earlier, I'm sure she left with a shuttle or something. We can track her, can't we? Pursue her, blow her up. Tell Hayate to pursue. Capture her and let me take care of her. Please, do it for me."
Her eyes were bloodshot and wide. She didn't notice herself crying as she smiled, walking on the brink of insanity. The scorch marks on her face seemed to pulsate.
"Fate..." Nanoha whispered.
"Let's go, right now. Why aren't we moving? Come on, why won't you help me? Nanoha!"
Nanoha hugged her, hard. Fate squirmed, rambling on, trying to go somewhere. Her words became slurred as she started crying harder, eventually turning into a long wail. Nanoha wouldn't let go. She felt more numb than ever, unable to say or do anything else.
The wail lessened little by little until Fate clung with her arms around Nanoha's waist, quietly sobbing. Their comms choose that moment to crackle to life. "Nanoha, this is Hayate. Take cover somewhere and wait for extraction. You have a large force moving in on your position. We would use the teleporter, but it's out of commission right now."
"Roger that," Nanoha said, patting Fate on the back. She tried to mask her emotions, pushing them down into herself, but some of it leaked through in her voice. "I knew you would come back, Hayate."
"As if you'd ever doubt me."
Nanoha chuckled and the transmission ended.
"Let's move into that building," Signum said and pointed at a sturdy-looking structure nearby. Nanoha nodded and they moved into it, carefully supporting Fate as she walked. Once inside they combined their magic barriers and shields to create a bubble around them in case the building would suffer damage, though she wasn't sure from what. Fate had gone awfully quiet, staring off into space with empty eyes. Nanoha wrapped an arm around the woman's shoulder, partly to comfort her and partly to make sure for herself that Fate was actually by her side.
A few moments later they could see a bright light in the distance, blocked by the rest of the city. It seemed to move closer until it suddenly faded. After a few seconds a shockwave so powerful screamed past them, shaking the building so hard it cracked at the walls, dust falling to the floor. Nanoha almost expected it to crumble as the foundation groaned. Metal broke somewhere in the distance, followed by a loud crash.
Their building didn't collapse. The shaking stopped as soon as it had begun and she exhaled, still holding Fate's shoulder. Relief washed over her and she couldn't help but smile. "We can leave now," she said, looking at the others and then at Fate. Relieved and battered faces all around her, except for Teana."We can rest on the
for a while."
"Not all of us are," Teana said, looking into the sky through a window. She massaged the wound on her leg. "Subaru wasn't here. She was supposed to be with Fate. Where the hell is she..."
Earlier, in the Dimensional Sea.
Calm. She felt such a strong calmness it scared her as the
and the rest of her fleet traversed the Dimensional Sea in silence. Hayate sat in her command chair, idly observing the crew and the screens surrounding her. Information, some of it irrelevant intel, scrolled past in a steady stream. Everyone did their jobs without paying attention to anything else.
Waiting. Holding their breaths for what would come next.
"Arriving within the hour, Commander," Mariam said. "The fleet is reporting all systems optimal."
Hayate nodded, swapping windows on her screen. Diagnostics of the ship, focusing on the bow, came up. Pulsating lines illustrated the Arc-en-Ciel weapon system links, indicating its operational status. They were all green and healthy; the last piece in her plan had been put into place.
"Are they in position?" she asked.
"Yes. According to their calculations they will drop out of the Sea at their pre-designated locations and wait for your orders, if all conditions are optimal."
"And are they?"
"For the moment, yes." She paused. "There is no telling once we drop, though."
Hayate sighed, crossing her arms. "Time will tell. I'm out of ideas at this point. This is the only way to fight them right now with our numbers."
"I agree, Commander," Mariam said. "It is just that I am voicing my worries. It is a good plan, after all."
"I understand that... And I hope it's good enough."
Mariam's console pinged and she brought it up on Hayate's screen as she narrated, "Our scouting vessels report that the Absolution fleet is holding their position where we last saw them. They are having trouble navigating through the debris, though."
"Alive, but damaged. It seems it is stationary for the time being."
"Damnit." Hayate sighed. "I hoped it would have moved on or something. It might be a problem."
Mariam nodded, keeping quiet. Hayate couldn't read her face; a master of the stone mask.
Half an hour passed as the fleet made their way back to Mid-Childa. When the time drew near, Hayate gave them their orders and the ships dispersed in the Sea. She remained alone at her position, as planned.
"Hotdrop attack commencing in ten," Mariam said.
Hayate braced herself. Her heart started to beat faster as adrenaline rushed in her veins. She tried to repress the urge to call it a historic moment -- a moment of triumph even -- when the Navy beat back the invaders in a decisive battle. There wouldn't be any more running after this. It would change the war.
At least she hoped as much, at the same time realizing it was a fruitless wish doomed to fail.
The ship shuddered and blackness replaced the dark blue shimmer of the Sea, stars glittering in the background. A planet came into view below them, along with the Absolution fleet from earlier. Twelve battlecruisers orbited the
in slow progression. Straight ahead of her, behind the hostiles,
dropped down, followed by the remaining ships at two other locations, forming a square formation around the Absolution fleet. They were boxed in.
By now, five seconds had passed since they had left the safety of the Sea. The Absolution fleet would already be locking them up.
"Prepare to fire," Hayate said. "Link up with the other ships, amplify."
Lines of light appeared between the four ships, linking them with one another. Hayate could feel the weapon charging up inside her own ship, a constant hum reverberating throughout the hull. She watched, anxiety rising, as the Absolution fleet started to split up, picking a target each. They were still outside their own weapon range, but that wouldn't matter in a few minutes.
"Progress?" she asked.
"Ready to fire in ten," Mariam said.
The rest of the fleet reported they were ready as well and they started to charge up their cannons. The lines between them started glowing brighter, growing in size, while the Absolution fleet fired in a desperate attempt to break the links. Beam fire reflected off

is moving, Commander! It's aligning somewhere."
"Shit, can we fire yet?"
is reporting electrical complications. It will take a few seconds for them to fix it."
The behemoth aligned out as Hayate watched and its engines flared for an instant. Its speed picked up by a fair margin and left its brethren behind, smashing into debris and friendly ships with no heed for their safety. It's Commander knew what Hayate was planning and he didn't plan to stick around.
"It's preparing to warp away," Hayate muttered, fists clenched. Anger boiled within her. "We can't let it escape."
"We can fire now!" Mariam said, looking up from her console. All screens agreed with her."
"Do it," Hayate said, turning the key in her console to unlock all safety locks. "Fire before that fucker can get away!"
Space warped as the Ciel activated. The battlecruisers caught within the radius seemed to bend into peculiar shapes, a product of the visual illusion as the Arc-en-Ciel effect increased. Hayate knew that within the sphere of influence, burning with bright light, chaotic forces were wrecking havoc with the ships' hull. The
, though, wasn't part of them. It disappeared into space, blinking out of existence.
Ships exploded in the sphere where time-space became disrupted. Debris appeared and then disappeared as the magical forces disintegrated any material within. Flowers of explosive energy bloomed in space.
Then it stopped as quickly as it had begun, the
returning to its ambient hum. It all lasted for five seconds.
"The Absolution fleet has been destroyed, Commander," Mariam said. "Establish orbit around Mid-Childa?"
"Yes." She eyed the screen showing the planet. The map showing Cranagan looked odd. "What's happening down on the surface, around Cranagan?"
"A large force is moving in. The Unforgiving are unaware of it as far as I can tell."
Hayate opened a comms channel, something she hadn't done since arriving at the planet again, and hailed her team. "Nanoha, this is Hayate. Take cover somewhere and wait for extraction. You have a large force moving in on your position. We would use the teleporter, but it's out of commission right now."
"Roger that." It came through clean. There wasn't any interference anymore. She sounded exhausted and Hayate thought she sensed some emptiness in her voice. "I knew you would come back, Hayate."
"As if you'd ever doubt me."
"Commander," Mariam said. "Orders?"
"Measure the distance between the hostiles and Cranagan. How close are they?"
"A few kilometers, moving fast.
"Then we should... Yeah." She grinned as she stood up, hands on her hips. "Prepare for Orbital Bombardment.
only. Tell the rest of the fleet to stand-by."
"Will do, Commander."
She waited while the ship powered up again. They had enough energy for one smaller Arc-en-Ciel blast and with the rest of the fleet surrounding them they weren't in any danger if Absolution ships would appear. The only worry lay in the fact that the radius might be too big and take out a part of Cranagan in the process. They had to be careful and accurate in their calculations. Nevertheless, she doubted there would be any problems.
"Preparations complete. Area of effect established. All systems optimal. Hostile force has been locked in. Commander, on your call."
The ship shuddered and one white beam swooped down towards the planet, forming a white orb as it reached the ground. Hayate looked at the screen as it happened, sighing in relief as the blast radius was just outside Cranagan's borders. The results came back a moment later.
"All hostiles annihilated, Commander," Mariam said when feedback information streamed across the screen. "Minimal collateral damage."
"Good. Send down a shuttle and extract them." She sighed, wiping sweat from her brow. The tension in her body loosened, letting her relax. "Tell the Unforgiving that they can rest for a while. We might just have made the Absolution a bit scared..."
What actually happened to Fate while in captivity? The answe won't be found in the main story, but it can be found within...
"Lord Veena. It's an honor to have you visit us here at our outpost. It's been a long time since someone from the Highers came back."
"The pleasure is mine, Zealot General, but I am here on business. Where are the prisoners?"
"In the back. The woman took down a whole battalion before we could capture her."
"What about the boy and the girl?"
"Weaker, but still fought on like crazy. That dragon demon of hers hurt us a lot... Though it couldn't handle that much firepower. Heh. If you'd try and sell its scales now, you would barely afford dinner."
"I see. Using child soldiers. Heretics have no morals. They urgently need our guidance."
"Indeed they do, Lord Veena. Well, here we are."
"Ah. I see you have started the interrogation."
"A little. I don't think it's much use interrogating the children. I doubt they know as much as the woman."
"What about their names?"
"The woman, Fate. The children, Erio and Caro."
"Fate. An amusing name, considering the circumstances. What can she tell us, I wonder?"
"I'm not telling you... anything."
"Oh, so she can speak. Your interrogation techniques have gotten better, Zealot General."
"Much appreciated, Lord Veena. I'm proud of my work so far. I make a point of being more careful nowadays when I extract teeth and the like."
"I see. Well, Fate; tell me the locations of the Administration's fortified positions as well as any potential future plans you may be aware of."
"She's keeping silent, Lord Veena."
"What have you tried to make her talk so far?"
"Teeth extraction, skin scorching and a few other things. Either she's amazing at ignoring the pain or she's using magic to turn off her senses."
"I very much doubt that would be possible. Then again, they are Administration mages. Do not underestimate them. Look, Fate. Can I call you that? Or would you prefer Enforcer Harlaown?"
"Lord Veena, you already knew..."
"How do you know my..."
"There are ways to find such basic information. Zealot General, please leave us. I will take it from here."
"Yes, Lord Veena. As you command. I will wait outside."
"Now that leaves us, Fate. And these children. We are both women, you and I. We understand the connection between mothers and children, do we not?"
"Yes, I do have children. Two sons. Both are Zealot Generals, but not on this planet. They are waiting for my orders. Again, Harlaown, give me the positions and any plans you may know."
"You won't... break me."
"Why do you think I am asking. Out of courtesy? No. I need this information. The Zealot General? The one who tortured you? Do not tell him I said this, but he has gone soft in later days. You may be bleeding, you may be hurting, but you are not giving me what I want. Can you not understand the implications this might have between us?
"...Keeping silent again? I see. Then... Erio! Do you know this information I am asking for?"
"No. And I wouldn't tell you."
"Leave him alone..."
"So loyal! I like that in a man, with one condition."
"That the man realizes just how stupid it is to be loyal in a situation such as this. Which you do not."
"Leave him alone!"
"Will you talk if I do, Harlaown?"
"... Anything else. Ask me something else."
"Access codes. Warship authorization. Work with me, Harlaown."
"Don't tell her anything, Fate!"
"We can resist her!"
"Erio, Caro, you should keep quiet. Your mother and I have are having a conversation between adults."
"Please stop it..."
"I cannot, Caro. Harlaown, what will it be? Silence? Well then..."
"I broke two of your fingers. You did not scream or wail. Impressive. I can respect self-control."
"Leave her alone! Don't you dare--"
"You are an annoying one, boy. I have to make you keep quiet."
"Don't... touch him..."
"But I am, am I not, Harlaown? Look, my fingers are trailing his neck. His cheeks. Tongue."
"And now I have ripped out his tongue so he will learn not to interrupt me again. All this blood is an inconvenience, though. My armor is red. I need to clean it now."
"Erio... Veena, you bastard..."
, Harlaown. Look, everything will end if you do. This boy is already doomed, however. It is because of you he is dying, because of loyalty yet again. Loyalty to the Administration, loyalty to the cause, loyalty to... I do not know. Someone. Somewhere."
"Please don't let him die... Please save--"
"That made you quiet, did it not?
his neck like that? The sound is quite horrible. He is so quiet now. Tranquil. No pain. What do you think, Caro?"
"...Ah... no... Erio, why..."
"Hmm? Do you want your mother to kill you too? Might that actually be what you want? You look at her with those wide eyes of yours, tears streaming down your cheeks. Almost as if you want her to save you from this madness. Except she will not, because her
means much more than you do. You are merely a piece in her game. In the Administration's game. To imagine they would use child soldiers, well, this is the result of that. Maybe they will think twice the next time they do it. Would you not agree, Harlaown?"
"... I don't... You don't understand. Caro, don't listen to her, please."
"But I think she should listen! I am applying logic here. To protect your loyalty towards the Administration, you must keep quiet. This child is merely a vessel for your success of keeping that loyalty. She is the epitome of some kind of redemption, is she not? A personal totem, if you would, something to remind you of... Well, I would guess something you yourself did not have and that you are now able to give. And it is all... lies! All of it. Yet you call
the beasts. Ironic, is it not?"
"None of that... is true..."
"Maybe not. Maybe it is. It does not matter."
"What are you--"
"I have only broken one arm so far. Look, you can see the bone piercing the skin. There is one more to go, not counting her legs, fingers, toes... You know, to some, this might be the definition of
. Doing the same thing over and over and over again, expecting different results. Do you want to spiral down into madness, Harlaown? To see what lies beyond the veil of--"
"Alright!... Alright. I'll give you what you want, just please don't hurt her anymore, please."
"Good. Excellent. That means I can end her misery."
"You were too late, Enforcer Fate T. Harlaown. You see, I believe that the true face of a person appears when they are driven to vengeance fueled by hatred. And, what better hatred is there than towards the person who
"Don't do it. I swear, if you do--"
"You will come and hunt me down for the rest of your life. It will become your sole purpose for existing and I will be there to witness your real soul. Come after me and kill me. Drive that device of yours through my heart. End my life before I succumb entirely to insanity because I can feel it creeping up on me. If it takes over me, I might forget about you and I would not be able to enjoy the moment of revelations."
"Your hatred is already growing, I can see it. I know you better than you know yourself. The Absolution has a history with you, Administration mage. Soon your history and my history will clash and join each other. Our fates,
, will become intertwined. Now..."
"Put her down! What are you doing to her!?"
" You would be surprised how fragile the body is when you cannot use your magic. Especially when you are surrounded by my own magic. Do you know what it is called, Harlaown? This spell of mine, rising your daughter to the skies in a golden bubble?"
"I call it the Extractor of God. Do you know why I call it that? No? I will show you."
"... Ah. No. Caro! No!
Please, god, no!
"Can you see it, Enforcer? Can you see God's extraction? It is raining from the skies, streaming down your body, coloring your blonde hair red. It feels good, does it not? Knowing that now you are bathing in the glory that is God. Your daughter has become one with God. Your son, not so much. And it is all your fault. You need to remember that, Enforcer. Remember what I have done. Remember it was your fault. Because of you, and the Administration, your children died a horrible death."
"You son of a... I will
... forget what you've done."
"Are you deaf, Fate? That is what I have told you over and over and... Insanity. It is claiming me. You can see it is already happening. If it is any consolation I am actually a little afraid."
"Are you leaving me here? Where... are you going?"
"Ask me, Fate. Ask me why I am afraid."
"... Why... are you afraid?"
"Because if insanity claims me, what I have done here today has been a taste of what is to come. That which follows will only be described as... the work of a real monster. Goodbye, Enforcer Fate T Harlaown. I have a feeling we will meet sooner than you think."
After this, Act I ends, Act II begins. Perspective becomes only Nanoha and we finally go space walkin'. And turn everything up to 11.
