"The Epilogue of ACES", subtitled The End of a Story Is the Beginning of a New One, is a standalone manga chapter serving as the epilogue of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's, originally published in Comic Chirality Vol.2.
Five months after the Book of Darkness Incident, Nanoha, Fate, and Hayate officially become cadets of the Administrative Bureau, albeit in different departments. Fate has been adopted by Lindy and trains on Arthra to become an Enforcer; Hayate and her Knights have begun working for the Special Investigations Unit; and Nanoha aims to become a Combat Instructor. Amy and Mariel inform Hayate that "version 8" of her new Device, Schwertkreuz, is almost finished, and Nanoha, that Raising Heart's frame has been reinforced. Nanoha goes to pick her up and visits Yuuno, who just started working for the Infinity Library and is being pressured by Chrono to speed up the reorganization. Nanoha and Yuuno talk about their first meeting and all the events that resulted from it, when Signum calls him, asking to set up a barrier for her training match against Fate. Before long, a team battle between Midchildan mages (Chrono, Fate, Alph, Nanoha, and Yuuno) and Belkan knights (Hayate, Signum, Shamal, Zafira, and Vita) is organized. Lindy and Leti observe the battle and Leti wonders what kind of miracle allowed them to resolve the Book of Darkness Incident without any casualties. Meanwhile, in the training room, Nanoha and Fate prepare a combined attack, Blast Calamity, but Hayate counters it with her own. The resulting explosion decimates the training barrier, prematurely ending the battle in a draw.
