'''''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6195756/1/Material_Days Material Days]]''''' (Also being posted in the [[http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=60648 AnimeSuki Forum's Nanoha FanFiction Discussion]] and [[http://addventure.bast-enterprises.de/frecent.php?tag=Restart+Deluge!+Material+Days here]], though you will need to dig) is a ''Franchise/LyricalNanoha'' fanfic by Nanya and Epsilon Zeta (aka Yasanagi on [=AnimeSuki=]).

Taking place six months prior to Manga/MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce, when an excavation team uncovers lost scriptures from the Book of the Silver Cross, Yuuno gets called away from his civilian life to lend his expertise to the case, but things get really weird really fast when he finds the excavation site blown to smithereens and the Huckebein fighting... the Materials? Yeah baby, it's everyone's favorite {{Evil Twin}}s from ''[[VideoGame/MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaAsPortable The Battle Of Aces]]'', and things are about to get very very interesting for our dear Ferret Boy...

!! This fanfic contains examples of the following tropes:
* ActorAllusion: Material-L sings the ''BGataHKei'' tune when Material-S appears after her first IntimateHealing session.
** Later on, Material-L is explaining to Sette that she sees NanaMizuki as someone who could influence their universe for the worse, especially with her multiple guises as, in her own words, [[RosarioToVampire a vampire with duo personalities]], [[HeartcatchPrettyCure a Magical Girl with a Super Silhouette form]] or [[EndlessFrontier an Elf Princess armed with a weapon that can act as a gun, sword AND a guitar!]]
** The casual wear for Material-S is based off Ranpha's cheongsam from Anime/GalaxyAngel while Material-D's casual wear is copied from the first appearance of Aizawa Sakuya in Manga/HayateTheCombatButler. The latter is a bit of an interesting case since Sakuya's overall character appearance is very similar to Yami's with the hair and eye colours and the hairstyle.
** A discussion on TrashTalk between Signum & Vita has the former insulting the latter using this example: [[EndlessFrontier "I will write something insulting on that billboard you call a chest."]]
* AscendedExtra
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Rai starts to introduce herself to [[spoiler:Megane and Lutecia]] and ends up feeling the latter's hair and commenting on how smooth it is.
* AuthorFilibuster: Rai occasionally goes on FourthWall-breaking rants about things the authors hate about the series.
* AuthorTract: The authors '''''can not''''' shut up about how much they hate Nanoha's [[LesYay yuri fanbase]], whether they're using Rai as a FourthWall-breaking mouthpiece to deliver an AuthorFilibuster or using Touma's HaremHero status to {{troll}} Vivio/Einheart shippers or any number of other things.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: Material-D has shades of this. [[spoiler: By modifying one of her spells and observing the effect when it hit Arnage, she was able to reasonably estimate her enemy's rate of Regeneration and Magic Neutralization. Of course this goes out the window when Arnage Reacts.]]
* BerserkButton: Any mention of the Materials' original counterparts would trigger this to them.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Material-S. She's the sanest of all Materials, but...
* {{BFS}}: [[spoiler:[[FinalFantasyVIII Blasting Zone]].]]
* BilingualBonus[=/=]GratuitousGerman: Sometimes, especially with Yami / Material-D's case since she uses the Belkan Magic System.
** GratuitousItalian: Courtesy of the Azure Grimoire, [[spoiler:Sette's new book.]]
* BreakingSpeech: Combined with WhatTheHellHero when [[spoiler:Seikou asks Erio how he would have liked to have his friends taken from him like he tried to do with Yuuno.]]
* BrickJoke: [[spoiler:Rai asks Garyuu to "show me your moves". Later, when Garyuu is about to attack Seikou, she interrupts and tells him that he was supposed to show HER his moves, not [=Seikou/Material-S=]]]
* CallBack: In Dieci's words: '"Nanoha-san blew me up when I was a bad guy. Now I'm not a bad guy and evil Nanoha-san is going to blow me up." Tears started to flow down her face. "I don't wanna explode in pink again!"'
* CatchPhrase: "Call me 'Your Majesty!'"
* ChekhovsGunman: After the first fight, the Huckebein have disappeared for the moment. [[spoiler:They're back. Actually, different ones.]] [[ForegoneConclusion It might now be Isis]].
* ChickMagnet: Yuuno and Touma...[[UnwantedHarem unintentionally]].
** CluelessChickMagnet: Touma seems like he's one since he doesn't appear to be bothered by it.
* DeadpanSnarker: Anyone who hangs out with [[CloudCuckoolander Material-L]] long enough is guaranteed to have this role thrust upon them at some point. Vulnificus and Yuuno have had their moments. [[spoiler: And now it's Sette's turn.]]
* DeusSexMachina or IntimateHealing: Applies in an interesting way. Close proximity to a power source is all they needed, [[{{Synchronization}} but linker core synchronization yields better results]], [[EpilepticTrees and then there's]] [[WildMassGuessing crazy theories about]] creation of new life or something like that...
** {{Deconstruction}}: with Yami and Rai, [[spoiler:in Yami's case, it's a [[LoveIsIntheAir Love Spell]]. In Rai's case, outright Rape]], not that Yuuno [[NiceGuy would protest too much after that]].
** {{Reconstruction}}: With Seikou [[spoiler: it's quite intimate. [[GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex Really.]] [[TheirFirstTime Congratulations, Yuuno]]]].
* DoNotCallMePaul[=/=]TheyCallMeMisterTibbs: Material-D would rather be called "Your Majesty" rather than Yami or Material-D.
* [[DudeShesLikeInAComa Dude He's Like In A Coma]]: After Material-D whacks Yuuno out cold... Material-S kisses him twice.
* DullSurprise:
-->[[TheStoic Material S]]: Yuuno-san... You're hugging me too hard... And you're squeezing my butt.
-->[[LampshadeHanging Considering the tone she was using, she could have been talking about the weather.]]
* EvilWeapon: The Materials' Devices have minds of their own and at times are not fully in alignment with their mistresses.
* FacePalm: Done by [[spoiler:Veyron after calling Rai "Levi the Slasher", due to thinking that her stupidity will be infectious.]]
* FlawExploitation: Megane sets up a trap for [[spoiler:Material-L by using her beloved chicken as bait.]]
* FunWithAcronyms: Yuuno's shuttle is called the '''B'''erlakian '''U'''niversal '''S'''huttle.
* {{Hentai}}: [[http://addventure.bast-enterprises.de/frecent.php?tag=Restart+Deluge!+Material+Days NSFW version. You have been warned.]]
* HotSpringsEpisode: [[OneOfUs Mentioned by name.]]
** [[ShoutOut On a planet called]] [[OutlawStar Tenrei]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Yami/Material D will do anything to ensure the well being of her fellow materials, despite her attitude towards them.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Yuuno is quite unaware that the Materials have declared war on the Bureau and that the Bureau is gearing up to fight them.
* MarshmallowHell: Done to Touma by Subaru and Dieci. [[OneOfUs Mentioned by name.]]
* MoralityChain / MoralityPet: Yuuno is this to the Materials.
* MurderIsTheBestSolution: How the Materials dealt with people who stood in their way before meeting Yuuno.
* MythologyGag: Material-S's Linker Core manifests as a foxgirl called [[TriangleHeart3SweetSongsForever Kuon]].
** Rai is asked if she wanted to be called "Levi the Slasher" which references the official names for the Materials that many applied FanonDiscontinuity to.
** Chrono's ObviouslyEvil accusation from Rai references the original MagicalGirlLyricalNanoha {{Pilot}} [[EarlyInstallmentWeirdness Story]].
** Doubles as {{Foreshadowing}}, Touma [[SneezeCut sneezed]] when Isis talking about "[[MagicalRecordLyricalNanohaForce More people show up]] [[MagicalGirlfriend with weirdo girlfriends]] and [[WeirdnessMagnet people chasing after them]]".
* NeverLiveItDown: Nanoha's (ab)use of Starlight Breaker has this in-universe.
* NoblewomansLaugh: Material-D [[spoiler:and she's teaching Lutecia how to do it properly.]]
* NoNameGiven: The Huckebein who appeared at the start were not explicitly named. [[spoiler: They're Curren and Karen.]]
* NotSoStoic: Seikou at times.
* ObviouslyEvil: {{Parodied}}. Material-L thinks Chrono is this.
-->"I KNEW you were evil! [[SpikesOfVillainy Evil spikes,]] [[GoodColorsEvilColors black clothes]] [[{{Mooks}} and now having people to enforce your will!]]"
* OCStandIn: Materials, this is the whole premise.
** {{Flanderization}}: The Materials, as per above.
* OpenMouthInsertFoot: [[spoiler:Erio, why did you call Seikou nothing but a clone of Nanoha?]]
* PaperFanOfDoom: Material-D knocks Yuuno out with one [[spoiler: when he's trying to shield his ship from the Huckebein]]. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Nice going, Yami]].
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: Seikou really likes telling her opponents how screwed they are before blasting them to oblivion.
* PoorCommunicationKills: The TSAB think that Yuuno is being held hostage by the Materials and is trying to save him from them. The Materials think the TSAB is an evil organization that forces Yuuno to work for them and is trying to keep him away from them. [[LockedOutOfTheLoop None of them actually tell Yuuno what's going on.]]
* PsychopathicManchild: Material-L.
* PunctuatedPounding: Done by Yami to Yuuno with a PaperFanOfDoom.
* RantInducingSlight: Yuuno, when he snaps once.
* ReadyForLovemaking: [[spoiler:While not in the pose, Seikou tells Yuuno that if he wants to do that with her, he should see her later]].
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: Under Yuuno's influence, the Materials were starting to reform, but the TSAB's insistence on seeing and treating them as the enemy is creating the very opponent it is afraid of.
* SenselessSacrifice: [[spoiler: Reinforce Eins's, since the Materials were made from remnants of the corrupted Defence Programme that got away.]]
* ShoutOut:
** "[[{{Deadpool}} Now is fighty time, fighty time! Blood, blood...]] '''[[{{Deadpool}} BLOOD!]]'''"
** [[Memes/{{Music}} "I spin me right round, right round!]]
** "... [[VideoGame/BlazBlue we shall reap the sins of your world and cleanse it in the fires of destruction.]]"
*** "For Real Soviet Damage, Yuuno-kun!"
** [[IntimateHealing Mana replenishment methods invented by]] [[{{Nasuverse}} the Nasuvians]].
*** "Please teach me, Yuuno-sensei!"
** "Proceed heading [[Film/THX1138 1138]]."
** [[Anime/TurnAGundam "Does it involve growing a white moustache, sprouting rainbow-coloured butterfly wings behind you and short circuiting all the prison's equipment, including the six satellites which are generating the barrier?"]]
** "No matter how many times I ask Vulnificus to enter [[VideoGame/{{Doom}} IDDQD]] or [[KonamiCode Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start…"]]
** "Engage [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Nightingale]][[note]]In the ''Char's Counterattack'' novel, Char's MS was the Nightingale.[[/note]] System. Authorization Code: [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Epyon]] OZ-13."
** "Um, thank Gundam? No, that's [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Setsuna's]] thing…"
** [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 "After all, snipers are strongly dedicated to professional standards which state that they should be polite, efficient and always have a plan to kill anyone they meet.”]]
*** [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 “You don’t know enemy spies like I do. They’ll infiltrate any base, kill any personnel, disguise themselves to obtain top secret enemy information and worst of all… seduce our mothers to the point where they become presidents of their fan club!”]]
** [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck "I am the terror that flaps in the night! I am the boogeyman that causes kids to keep wetting their beds until they are twenty four and a half years old! I am Material-L! But you can call me Rai-chan!"]]
** “If you’re not [[FinalFantasyVIII Squall, then what are you? Maybe… you’re a lion?]]”
** [[Film/KillBill "Wiggle your big toe."]]
** [[FatalFury “Hey, c’mon, c’mon!]] [[VideoGame/{{F-Zero}} Show me your moves!]] [[KamenRider Rider Chop and Rider Kick! Ah, those are probably top tier special moves with crazy invincibility frames and stuff!”]]
** [[WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures "MANTIS BOXING STYLE!" "SERPENT POUNCE TECHNIQUE!" "FLOAT LIKE LOTUS BLOSSOM!" "STING LIKE SCORPION!" "Flamingo Stance."]]
** Yami wants [[spoiler: Erio]] to [[Manga/BlackLagoon kneel]].
** "It’s like taking on [[StreetFighter Sagat]] and just before you win, someone slides a quarter in and hits the start button.”
** [[SonicTheHedgehog “Blue hedgehog lose all rings pouting stance!”]]
** [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes “Roadrunner gets caught in coyote’s wily trap!”]]
* SlouchOfVillainy: Material-D's sitting manner.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Uses "Touma".
* SpySpeak: By Agent Skyhawk. It pisses Verossa off.
* StayFrosty
* TakeThat: Some played for RuleOfFunny, coming from [[CloudCuckoolander Material-L's]] mouth. Basically, if there's something the authors don't like about the series, [[WriterOnBoard she'll be the one to say something about it.]]
--> '''Rai:''' "[[SarcasmMode There is only one truth]]. [[LighterAndSofter This universe here, our universe… it all came from]] [[ScapegoatCreator one man. Masaki Tsuzuki]]. [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks AND IT BLOWS]]!"
--> '''Rai:''' "I can just hear it… the voices of the FanDumb's complaining! Too much fanservice… and no plot. Just like [[MagicalGirlLyricalNanohaViVid ViVid]]…"
--> [[BrickJoke Later, in chapter 15]]
--> '''Rai:''' "God doesn't exist in this universe, Yuu-nii. There's only [[ScapegoatCreator Masaki Tsuzuki… but you shouldn't pray to him because he's a big dick]] [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks who pretty much]] [[DarthWiki/RuinedFOREVER ruined the universe already]]. Although if anything, you can also blame the [[FanDumb Lesbian Legion of NanoFate for]]-"
--> '''Yuuno:''' "[[GoMadFromTheRevelation NOT HELPING]]!"
** Material-S fragging [[spoiler: the Seekers of Absolute Truth, who believe "[[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything That two women,]] [[HasTwoMommies who raise a child together are obviously a family]] [[LesYay and in love with each other.]]"]]
*** Reverend Maru Kovanich and Bishop Patrick Haru. [[FunWithAcronyms Don't these names sound familiar]]?
** [[spoiler: Veyron calling Rai "Levi the Slasher".]]
* TemptingFate: Chrono's 'At least there isn't someone who looks and sounds like Nanoha with them'. Some time later, Material-S shows up.
** One engineer states that [[spoiler: "a private call to the Admiral could end up getting transferred to the bridge. Worst case scenario, some media station on Mid-Childa or a public domain television like in a mall"]]. Guess what.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: For Material-L, it's chicken.
* UnwantedHarem: Materials to Yuuno.
** ThemedHarem: Well, Harem [[PersonOfMassDestruction of Mass Destruction]].
*** And Harem of {{Yandere}}s... [[DoomyDoomsOfDoom of Doom]].
** [[RuleOfFunny Parodied]] in the case of [[ChickMagnet Touma]]. The attention he gets from the [[FlirtyStepsiblings Nakajimas]] REALLY hinders Einhart's efforts to get closer. [[AndZoidberg And then]] [[ReincarnationRomance Vivio]] [[LoveDodecahedron joins the fray]] ([[ChildrenAreInnocent unintentionally]], which freaks Einhart out even further).
* UnwittingInstigatorOfDoom: Shi Nye accidentally relays the conversation between Chrono and the Materials to every TV station on Mid-Childa, thus starting the entire conflict.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Yuuno had a nightmare of Nanoha doing such moves to him.
* WriterOnBoard: See TakeThat, AuthorTract, AuthorFilibuster... hell, just ''look around'' a bit.
* {{Yandere}}: Applies to each of the Materials to various degrees:
** Seikou is a [[TheStoic subtle]] example although she leans more towards SugarAndIcePersonality.
** Yami already got pegged as a {{Tsundere}} earlier in the story. [[MoodSwinger Sanity is a bit questionable at times.]]
** Rai combines this with being CloudCuckoolander and CuteAndPsycho.
*** [[ThemedHarem What a family...]]
* YaoiFangirl: Shi Nye, the ''Claudia'''s comms officer.
* YuriFan: See TakeThat
