Surely older than her... How old is Vice? He could be used as a reference.

Makes sense that she'd try to get a few hits in while waiting for the proper time to use a finisher, but I think that still makes her a counterattack type. Regardless, though, Gwen would make any opponent fall into a defensive stance, as she always tries to take the initiative - unless her opponent is very experienced, in which case she would be more careful and fight similarly to Asagi. Depends on the enemy, as you say.

A mock battle between Gwen and Asagi can surely happen, too.

Don't worry though, they'd get along with Mai just fine *cough* BelkaBlack 2 *cough*

Hmm, some tasty angst is coming, I see.

Ah, so Mayura is indeed the onee-sama of the team, at least when it comes to experience.

I'm having a hard time with the current fights I'm writing; which are the Aurion vs. Hayate mock battle and the Grandis vs. Signum real battle...

The main problem in the first one is I'm getting in a bit of a tight spot with regards to Hayate's performance... She's, quite frankly, holding out quite well, if not almost constantly on the defensive. In a quick rundown without spoilering, here's her performance stats as of GenerationS...

Spoiler for GenerationS Hayate:


It's hard. It's VERY hard. But she has all the potential in the world to properly cover up her weaknesses and eventually even go as far as holding herself against her fellow Aces. Anybody who wants to say it's impossible? Speak up now. They won't make the SSS-rank if there were absolutely nobody who reached such a level. (Not perfect, alright?) And I believe Hayate can, eventually. She doesn't deserve to be a shafted one-trick pony and I won't let her be! I'm going to show her potential here, and I need all the advice I can get to make it happen without much skepticism from others.

And once more, this managed to accomplish the feat of making me even more pissed off at 7arcs than I ever thought possible. -_-

Any thoughts? Should I lower or raise some stats? Any ideas for how much her performance could improve upon Unison?
I dont see any problems with this, and in fact I agree with most of what you have here. The thing is, this is just a mock battle - I dont see what's so important about it. In the real battlefield, Hayate shouldnt need to actually fight (especially in close combat, since she is not particularly good at it, and she knows it) if she properly commands her unit, unless absolutely necessary, or her Knights are not with her. What I'm trying to say is, arent you thinking too much about this? She is supposed to be a ranged support, not a melee aggressor, after all. It is what makes her Hayate and not Nanoha.

As I have said before, Hayate CHOSE to be support and to become a Lt. Colonel to lead troops into battle instead of fighting the battles herself. She had the potential to choose whatever path she wanted - to become an Enforcer like Fate, or to become an "Aggressor" like Nanoha - but she chose otherwise. You can give Hayate quite a lot of character development without making her go into the battlefield - and I actually may have a scenario coming with a little of that.

Just my thoughts.

Thanks Goose, that's info I needed. I think I can tiptoe my way around and put something together in terms of Regius giving special low down orders for projects that didn't get very far, very fast, due to lack of extra funding. (Thus, why they sped up once Regius was killed and his OPEN pet projects toasted.)

@ Koreko. I have a nice thorough response typed out to your woes of power armor, but I've since stopped wanting to really post it but still have it off to the side here. It amounts to the fact that the difference between cyborgs, and power armor is that one has the circuts inside the puny manflesh, and the other is warn externally on top of the puny manflesh, which pretty much reduces your entire argument to cinders faster than a a dragon in a fireworks factory.

Ask and I'll post in full. But I'm tired, I ended up waking up early again and want to ensure my wording is sanely founded before I counter in full. (Rather than sound like a fanatic lunatic struggling uselessly while strapped to a chair.)

Saint X, this sounds like Hax to me. Making an entire new magic style just to avoid the AMF sounds like a underhanded way to cheat Scalatti of his best weapon, and the plot. In fact that's half the point of Nanohaverse, that Magic is more of a Science that can be understood, albeit one with mysterious ways.

Well in canon the TSAB only uses 2 magic forms and Jail is well versed in the ways of both Canons... and hence able to use AMF against the TSAB very effectively.

And there is a Canonical statement of other Magical forms/Canons existing

Jail may have knowledge of about 2 or more other Magical Canons, but since he's only fighting the TSAB- which uses only two types of Magical Canons, he does not use his other magical knowledge since he knows what he's doing when he started using AMF against the Bureau. If the Bureau had embraced more Magical Canons, then Jail would have plotted even longer...

And this is just for Rebuilt

And you said the proper words as well...

"Magic is more of a Science that can be understood, albeit one with mysterious ways."

How can Jail's AMF counter the 800+ Magical Canons in the multiverse?

Is Jail ready to take on at least 800+ other kinds of mages with who knows what kind of skills and spells?

Even with a clear mind one cannot think of countermeasures for such a wide array of threats- even threats that had been countered will find a way to break it.

and there is a possibility of a "Why is this not found in our records?!!" and "I thought we cataloged them all!!" scenario.

And besides, what could a mere Templar like shim do against the masses?

*senses Silvana incoming*

And more magic forms, the better...

Where was it stated that AMF is specifically designed to work against Mid and Belka magic types?
I see the AMF as something that interferes with the mage's ability to output magical energy. In principle, it should be equally effective against any form of magic.

Ah... yes....

the usual reply...

Well they are the more clear and present threat to him at the moment- the 'apparent lack of variety' of the target/s can make one say that it was designed to counter those kinds of targets- if there was/were an incident that involved another form other than the standards, that would be a different matter.

Well i have my own principle on how AMF interferes/cancels magic linking

And it is based on how some Active Noise Control Systems work.

the AMF generator takes a sample of the waveform of the emitter- which is pretty uniform even across different mages of the same Canon (some Canons like Mid/Velka)- hence the similar sigil.

then the generator emits an 'antiwaveform' so that when the two waveforms meet, they basically cancel out, leaving a waveform that is too weak for the mage for any proper linking/transmission. mages that do manage to operate in AMF have higher "pitch" and the same wavelength and frequency

I believe some Magical Canons have a "'varied' waveform" across different mages of the same Canon and hence not easily taken down by AMF- or mages that have waveforms that alter constantly due to certain factors. Magic forms that are 'commonly referred' to as weak... (as to Mid/Velka)

but as always a strong enough AMF is enough...

And if you're going to bring in the EMP concept, remember that it takes a certain waveform to fry out circuitry and wiring.

Sorry i forgot my books on Wave Theory- but part of the basic concept is there.

Hmm, that might work. Might I suggest also adding the political chaos the underhand business and subsequent death of the council would have undoubtably have caused as a reason? Of course, stuff like this still needs to be done with some semblance of secrecy...

The difference between internal and external circuitry is huge. It's like saying a layer of bone wrapped around the skin is as sturdy as one inside the body. A concentration of cables and wires is a hell of a lot more sturdy then the same cables scattered over a larger surface.

That being said, even the cyborgs broke down several times in the series.

Given that most Belkan magic tends to involve magic-powered physical attacks, with a few exceptions, I think saying Belkan magic is better against AMF is a fair statement. Like you said, even if the magic power gets cut, you still have a heavy piece of metal aimed at you. The only nonphysical Belkan I can think of off the top of my head is Hayate (Shamal doesn't count. ), who can probably just break an AMF with sheer firepower.

And 'grats on the 20K GET. Let's push on to 30!

No, I didn't mean that page. According to selkirk, the DVD booklets mention that Belkan enhancement magic is not affected by AMF.

As said, probably because the physical object being enhanced is still going to cause considerable damage when it connects, magic weakened or no.

Almost ANYONE is capable of being a jerk - how much of a jerk you are is dictated by the number of circumstances where you COULD act like one, but choose not to - a jerk quotient if you will. Grandis' point is that everyone has one. Mine is that mine is less than his. Not exactly the same thing.

And precisely WHAT sort of guy am I, Tesla?

Why?

We already know that normal mages not wearing Power Armor can do pretty much everything someone with Power Armor can do, and then some. Why do they need a bulky armor with all sorts of chips that allow it to move more freely then it should, when a mage without it can do the exact same thing? It doesn't give any advantages. If anything, all the technollogy only makes it more receptive to breaking down during a fight. And we know that mages can match a similar performance just fine, so why do we need masses of mages wielding Power Armor for any other reason then 'it's cool?'

To answer your question of having one ellement, and throwing the other away... I do disagree that as a justification for Power Armors. We have two elements in Nanoha, fantasy and sci-fi. The fantasy element is provided with things such as magic, familiars and dragons. The sci-fi ellement is provided with things such as dimensional spaceships, cyborgs, clones and devices.

The two already balance eachother out as they are, if anything, Power Armor would be the one which would throw away the fantasy side in exchange for the sci-fi.

Barrier Jackets are the main form of armor in Nanoha, they can take on any shape the user desires, from skirts to swimsuits to knight armor, and they all do the same thing: Protect and support the user. Why would you need an armor with all that technojunk? Just create a plate barrier jacket! Same results, much cheaper, more sturdy, the list goes on and on.

You asked 'Where are the knights in shiny machine armor on robot battle chargers?' the answer is simple: They don't exist. In fact, they don't exist for the same reason shiny machine armors don't exist: Why would they have them? By the time magic became the main practice, they long since had bikes, cars and helies, why would they make a robotic horse? Just stick a mage on a bike and you're done.
Good argument. I still propose that Power Armor is useful in limited amounts, but overall, I believe that your standard Barrier Jacket/Knight Armor is still just as useful.

IMO Powered Armor should be used when you need a little edge in some area. The OFM are primarily BlackOps operatives with a stealth penchant, and some Enforcers need to sneak in an area - and not everyone knows illusion spells. Hence the Ghost Armor.

It helps introduce a new reader to why the group has weapons, and it combines the feel of CIA blackops, with the personal feelings of our characters. I like how you addressed hotblood in a real fashion, and the reference to the CC, Fate. This story is somehow, uplifting. I can read the character's emotions and development quite well. Is there more of this @verse?
Yeah, I have about another twenty-five chapters after I finish up Chapter One , not to mention all the little random extras that might show up in between. The OFM shorts before this one kind of give a clue on how things so, though I usually write ones heavy on the action while Goose writes the more proper ones XD.

The interactions are nice and cute, yet don't feel like the character's ages are too young for me. The end paragraphs made me feel a slight happiness inside, and that clinched it for me. This is a great job!
I'm not really used to writing "harder" stuff, just "easy" sci-fi/fantasy/etc. Fluff and WAFF come a bit more naturally to me than angst and crack do. Thanks for the compliments though .

It is canon as regards to Alpha. Yes, that's who it yes. Yes, there's hot blood.

Oh dear god... you wrote it... and you didn't dive too far into crack like I thought you would. Excellent job!

Would like to get some opinion.

Spoiler for Alhazred:
What can I say besides EPIC? Another Nighty-quality piece.

But man, using the Terra System... OMG the memories. ABSOLUTELY AWESOME AND EPIC CHOICE.

Too bad the Alhazredians do not have psychic powers...

I wonder, though, wouldnt changing between Barrier Jackets eat up her magical stamina?

Mayura is damn awesome in close combat. Say, how good is she compared to Signum?

Nice devices, and that Gekichanger is lethal. Now she only needs some special boots... Lenalee suddenly comes to mind...

Spoiler for Erio, Knight Rider:
Thank your Meister, Erio, for I made you Grand.

Not a lot of crack as well, but can you spot the VA refs in the post?

And can you think of any more things that Kha and Erio are alike?
Finally my rebuild!

(Caro looks really nice there BTW...)

*ahem*

A Shaman?! Now that's an interesting development...

What's with those shoes, though? No wonder why he gets all those lolis...

Man, all the spells and abilities are awesome. Very nice work. ...But Bankai?! Well, for those who think its weird, just think of Shaman King's Yoh's technique of shrinking his soul releases for better handling, sharpness and speed. (This is from the anime, in case the manga did not have such technique.) It is the same principle as Ichigo's Bankai, and basically what Kha wanted to do here. And it works.

And BTW Kha, you can also say he changes his hair color to silver while in this mode... *runs*

Hmm, I think this is the best rebuild so far, or at least the one I liked the most, very coherent and interesting.

All going to be tricky writing really.

The difference between internal and external circuitry is huge. It's like saying a layer of bone wrapped around the skin is as sturdy as one inside the body. A concentration of cables and wires is a hell of a lot more sturdy then the same cables scattered over a larger surface.
No it's not, there's no difference to whether I place my cable bundle inside flesh, or outside flesh. It's still a cable. As an engineer, I'm going to build it intelligently. And wrapping bone around the flesh. You don't know how a modern exoskeleton frame is even MADE do you? You don't built it like a BUG's skeleton. You build essentilly an endoskeleton you stand in, and put armor around it.

If I wore an exoskelleton all day and all night, day in and day out throughout the passage of time of the series, it would break down too. Since I'm not a cyborg, I'm not obligated to sleep in my own armor. I would call that a maintanance PLUS. I can have an aged part replaced without having to go lay on a bed for X hours.

Medical terms, actually. Not to mention that your terms were completely inacurate, as shemales are something completely different.

And it wouldn't hurt to learn some tact.

Take one twig, and you can snap it easilly. Take a bundle of twigs, and snapping it becomes a lot harder. Same basic principle, a bundle if cables is going to be tougher then seperate cables spread over a surface. You completely missed my point. A bone is solid, which is what gives it its strength, spreading the same material and making it hollow reduces the strength.

The cyborgs have autorepair, remember? Similar to the human regeneration system, they repair whatever damage they take, reducing the amount of maintenance they need (even Subaru and Ginga only needed the ocasional checkup, not full-blown dismanteling).

On that note, is there any background on how said autorepair function works? For future reference?

Not as far as I know, we'd have to go poke Selkirk if the DVD booklets have anything to say on this part.
