I believe we're bordering on ethnocentrism here, people.

I suggest we drop this before things get sticky. As far as fanfiction discussion goes, I don't think social science debates are going to be much help in this case.

It all just boils down to "since there's no official word, you're allowed to make up any crazy old shit you want!"

Maybe Mid Childa is evolutionist by nature and deems any girl who hits puberty as fair game? We just don't know, so any possibility could be correct.

Well, we are talking about a planet ruled by an organization who finds it perfectly okay to employ nine year old children as soldiers... and in the military, if you're a soldier its legal for you to drink, so...

Truth in fanfiction then, I guess. My cousin joined the air force at 18 and was legally allowed to drink alcohol, while everyone else had to wait until 21.

They figure if you're legally allowed to die for your country, might as well give you access to beer while they're at it.

That makes so much sense...in some ways...

Ah, NaNo is finally over, and while I am working on the next chapter of Angel, I had this little short come into my head . Earlier, there was some mention of a "what if Nanoha and Precia had bonded"...so here's a one-shot!

...Nanoha, don't you know not to talk to strangers?

A Mysterious Encounter?

Not exactly. It depends on which nation your uniform belongs to as well as where you are stationed. That said US officers do tend to turn a blind eye to it even if it does violate code.

Considering the TSAB shows little -if any- qualms about recruiting willing nine-year-olds into the military, this might not be such a crazy idea as it sounds at face value.

But then, I live in a country where half of it's inhabitants don't even know what the age of consent is, and said half often doesn't really care either. Generally it's assumed 15/16-ish is as apropriate an age as any, since that's the age most start drinking as well.

Hmm, okay. I wouldn't know the details myself since I'm not in the military and never plan to be (I'm terrible with authority). But yeah, we're American so I guess that does make sense if that's the case.

I'd have to agree with Raiser on this, on the basis that they have nine year old children in the military. Old enough to bleed, old enough to breed, and all that. I'd see more fuss raised by abuse of power in relationships then the actual relationships.

TSAB is merely a cover for a future hitlerjugend WITH MAGIC! Just you wait! They might have started with 9-year olds, but who knows where they will stop. Indoctrination of their views and obligatory service for all Mid-Childa youths.

Someone needs to stop it. And I know who.

Cathedral Belka is mine. Synaesthesia spontaneously developed another version of it at the same time. Which is why you are free to take the concept.

Spoiler for A Mysterious Encounter?:
....

Oh shit, Precia killed Yuuno! Don't trust her, Nanoha! DON'T TRUST HER!

....

Too late, isn't it? *shot*

On a more serious note.... very interesting. Almost dark and creepy, when you think about the overtones of what Precia is saying and what she might have done. Personally, I'd be interested to see what would happen if Precia bonded with Nanoha enough to actually pull off a Face Heel Turn, or at least consider it.

So if she's using Nanoha to gather the Seeds, does this mean she never made Fate? Or was she abandoned?
