Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

- Synoposis: An in-depth novelization of the penultimate mission in Ace Combat 5, "Aces", depicting what happened mere hours before Osean and Yuktobanian armed forces ceased warring with each other and allied together to face the common threat of mutual destruction to the climatic mission itself. Rather than follow the exploits of the ace squadron of the game, however, the story gives focus to the nameless NPC soldiers that made the victory possible.
- Comments: Sudentor takes the second-to-last mission (and possibly the most climatic one) in Ace Combat 5 and brings it down to a ridiculously in-depth level. Using what is almost a 24-styled pacing, the author chooses to detract from the traditional formula of following whatever ace fighter squadron the game depicts, and tells how events transpired and came to be with excruciating detail through the eyes of allied NPC soldiers heard only through radio chatter. The chapters are quite long but very well-written, and the story progresses along beautifully and realistically, but of obvious concern is the fact that it took the author two and a half years to write Chapter Two after publishing Chapter One. While Sudentor has said that Chapter Three should be the last chapter and it would be completed as soon as possible, one would worry that it may take another two years before we can see the conclusion to this in-depth novelization.
