Je reviens avec une mission secrète de Shaka…
Après, je sais pas s'il est pertinent de poster cette page maintenant, vu qu'elle spoilera forcément les anglophones
À avec accent : “A ce propos”, “A chaque fois”, “A travers cette vidéo”, “A partir”, “A côté” etc..
“se nommera Lyoko. (Cf. La Ville sans nom, Chapitre 16)” > point manquant après la parenthèse
(Ça arrive d'autres fois, plus loin.)
N'ayant pas lu, je ne sais pas si c'est pertinent, mais “Army of Nothing” est un peu…ambigu comme titre. Vaudrait pas mieux : “The Army of Nothingness” ?
“Franz Hopper ayant besoin de fonds pour financer ses recherches (complexe de l'usine). La Green Phoenix lui ordonne de l'aider” > remplacer le point par une virgule. (Quitte à couper la phrase plus loin).
“la Green Phœnix pour qui celui-ci travail.” > travaille
“laissant le supercalculateur sans système opératif” > S'agit-il d'une erreur de traduction ? On dit : système d'exploitation (et j'ai traduit comme ça, car je n'ai foutrement aucune idée de ce qu'est un système opératifn sinon un Operating System = O.S.)
“il fait cours entre autre à Aelita” > entre autres
“travaillent toujours sur le projet Carthage et on reconstruit la Première Ville” > ont
“dont seul Walter Stern connait l'existence” > connaît
“celui-ci les a trahi” > trahis
“1994 ? (Le 1er Juin 1994) : Franz Hopper recontacte l'entreprise Broulet et Frères” > 1994 ? On dirait un reste de brouillon.
“cette organisation, dont on ignore le nom exacte” > exact
“Etant donné qu'elle a ne répond plus aux ordres” > Étant + qu'elle ne répond (“a” en trop).
“imposer son règne grâce au entre autre contrôle des communications” > “grâce, entre autres, au contrôle des communications” est plus correct
Je pense que le paragraphe sur Waldo Schaeffer, dans “histoire par potagoniste”, pourrait être étoffé de quelques précisions (ses colaborateurs, les histoires de gants arrache-souvenir etc., la mémoire d'Aelita, les informations dont il dispose, le collier d'Anthea)
One thing really made me laugh: Aelita is born in a military base in 1982, and then, three years later, surprise! Project Carthage turns out to be military!
I don't mind spoilers. Actually, I often find them appeasing. They are a way to have the benefit of hindsight from the first reading/watching, without bothering with unnecessary suspens.
But part of this information really sounded to me like stupid ideas…the necklace? the cheated memory glove? (the parents, of course?)
One last thing: translations would be less funny without my Easter-Egg URLs…Have fun!
Encadré de tête
This page sums up and organizes the elements of the Back-Story as they are presented throughout the Chronicles. Caution! In the books, all the elements of Franz Hopper's past life as they are presented here are revealed by bits and pieces throughout the chapters, mixed with various events. So if you have the intention of reading the books, do not read this page, it contains spoilers!
This back-story is not official properly speaking, since no one has ever approved the content of the Chronicles to be canon like the series…but given its compatibility with the back-story of the cartoon, the fact that the dates match, and compared to the crap we got from Code Lyoko Evolution by way of back-story, it is legitimate for us to feel content with that one.
Here is something that tidies everything up if you red the 4 books…because in the end, it is pretty thick! Congratulations to Vincent-49 for that huge piece of work, and special thanks as well.
Chronology of the back-story
The year 1974 was the beginning of Project Carthage, an international top-secret project that brings together the best scientists in the fields of computing and quantum mechanics. Waldo SCHAEFFER and his wife Anthea HOPPER are part of the team of searchers who work on the project. The development of the project – or, at least, part of it – takes place in a military base, in Switzerland.
The team of searchers of the Carthage Project. You can see Waldo at the center (his face is circled). This picture was taken in 1974, at the beginning of the project, and is extracted from Waldo Schaeffer's classified file.
The purpose of Project Carthage is to create a way to control electric communications and electronic devices, and to develop a system that could transport people from across the world in record time, at a negligible cost. In short, its role is to revolutionize all the ways of communication as they currently exist, material or digital.
At the same time as their progress, Waldo and Anthea enjoy a perfect love and in 1982, she gives birth to a girl whom they name Aelita. The baby, however, is born in a military facility, which indicates that the couple was living under constant constraints and supervision because of its involvement in a classified project regarding national security.
Waldo and Anthea in their happy years in the mountains (probably in Switzerland).
During that perior, the Carthage Project is at its cruising speed and one of its key elements has already been created. That is, a prototype of a virtual world named “First City” The First City is modelled on a futuristic city and at its center, there is a castle. This castle is located at the heart of the system and can be used in many ways, to control any piece of electric or electronic equipment in the world.
Waldo and Anthea are convinced that they work on a project intended to provide low-cost services to emerging countries, thanks to the control of electric communications, which would allow to spread electricity everywhere in the world (cf. The Nameless City, chapter 16). But while these incredible achievements are made, a “dark zone” is inserted in the castle of the First City (without Waldo's knowing), that take away the control over the digital world, and enables anyone to change it into a weapon of mass destruction for military purposes. Indeed, Carthage would be a decisive strategic advantage if a war was to burst, and a powerful tool for intelligence.
In 1984, soldier Mark James Hollenback, then aged 20, joins Project Carthage and enters the base. Born in 1964, in a family of very poor farmers, he went military in 1980 at 16 years old and, thanks to his military career, could join Carthage afterwards.
1985 : The end of Project Carthage
In 1985, that is to say eight years after the beginning of the project, Waldo and Anthea discover the truth about Project Carthage and its military objective. Therefore, they decide to leave the project and destroy the prototype of the “First City”, with the intention of recreating it elsewhere so that all their work would not have been made in vain. This cure to Carthage is to be named Lyoko (cf. The Nameless City, chapter 16).
Soon after that, for an unknown reason (probably to force Waldo into coming back to Project Carthage), Mark Hollenback kidnaps Anthea. Given the urgent situation, Major Steinback helps Waldo and Aelita to evacuate from the military base where he worked, incidentally stealing away documents.
She then leads the searches to find Anthea and provides Waldo Schaeffer with a new identity (cf. The Nameless Town, chapter 16).

1985-1988 : Living incognito
During this short period, Waldo lives a “quiet” life, going through several identities. For instance, during a short period of time, he becomes Henri Zopfi, mere employee. With Aelita, he lives in a small cottage where Major Steinback visits him sometimes, and keeps him informed of how the search to find Anthea is going.
During a cold winter morning, Waldo and Aelita definitely move into a charming villa, the Hermintage, located in the fringes of Paris. They are still assisted by Major Steinback, who once again gives Waldo a new identity. From now on, he is Franz Hopper, using his second name and Anthea's last name, and he teaches science at Kadic academy, while the Major takes the name of Suzanne Hertz and works in the same school. In spite of his apparent happiness, Waldo is, above all, willing to continue his searches and find Anthea. To that end, the Major tells him that she is in connection with a local manufacturer who owns a factory of which the underground part could be rebuilt and transformed into a laboratory, especially as the owner of the factory is interested by this kind of research. But the search for Anthea seems to be at a standstill since Hollenback changed his name and infiltrated a criminal organization (the Green Phoenix). He managed to put up a smokescreen and confuse the agents who were following his tracks, proving that he is more cunning than he looks. Hence his nickname, “The Magician” But thanks to his pendant, Franz knows that Anthea is still alive and that she is fine, so he does not give up hope (cf. The Nameless City, chapter 16).
In fact, since she was kidnapped by Mark Hollenback, Anthea was forced to follow him while he was on the run. Constantly travelling, she spends years locked in one prison after another. First, imprisoned in a lost shed in the Mercantour National Park, in the French Alps. Then, in England. At last, in Morocco. Hollenback, a.k.a. Hannibal Mago, forces her to work for the Green Phoenix. She tries in vain to rebel in order to find Waldo and Aelita. Every time she loses hope, her necklace lights up, which is a sign that Hopper is still thinking about her. She answers back using the necklace, her only link with her family (cf. The Army of Nothing, chapter 7).
1988-1994: Lyoko Project
A new era has now begun for Franz, who wishes to continue his researches to recreate Carthage, for civil purposes this time, in order to improve the world. He and Major Steinback have finally obtained the permission of the owner of the factory to turn it into a laboratory. Franz meets Walter Stern, the man he and the Major trust to finance their project.
Walter lives in the Paris region and works for the Green Phoenix. Since Franz Hopper needs funds to finance his work (and create the complex under the factory), the criminal organization orders Walter to help the runaway scientist by providing him with the necessary money. In exchange of which, Walter is bound to communicate them the results of Hopper's researches. Therefore, he buys the factory and furnishes the funds to build the Supercomputer complex.
According to these drawings, it seems that it is the “Broulet and Brothers” company that had to build the underground passages.
So they contact the little company of masonry “Broulet and Brother” to make the construction work and refurbish the factory. Soon, Philippe Broulet understands that the job he is asked to do must be a state secret. Indeed, the workers are brought there blindfolded and obligated to stay on their workplace without being allowed to leave, unless they are asked to do so. What is more, the payment of the work is made by a shell company in order to cover the tracks of the origin of the project. But given the high amounts of money he receives on his bank account, he decides it is better not to nose around (cf. The Underground Castle, chapter 14).
And he is right: the construction of the Supercomputer complex is financed by Walter Stern, who is himself financed by the Green Phoenix for which he works (cf. The Nameless Town, chapter 15).
One year later, Walter Stern, who hired Broulet and Brothers, introduces to them Franz Hopper, and asks them to do some work at the Hermitage. The purpose of those is to link the villa and the sewers grid, which would create a secret passage leading directly to the factory. He also makes them dig interconnected tunnels that link the school, the Hermitage and, of course, the factory. Each access is marked with the seal of the Green Phoenix, while the organization does not know the location of the Supercomputer (cf. The Underground Castle, chapter 13).
The entrance of the underground passage, at the Hermitage.
Then, Franz and Major Steinback begin to build the Supercomputer itself, the laboratory and the scanners, with the help of Takeho and Akiko Ishiyama, Robert Della Robbia, Michel Belpois (who invented the logic circuit for the scanners) and financed by the Green Phoenix through Stern.
Then they proceed to the coding of the new Carthage. Using the programs he developped with Anthea, Franz recreates the “First City” with the help of Major Steinback. That is to say, a copy of the digital world as it was designed for the Carthage Project, that also contains the aforesaid weapon. Hopper thinks that he is able to rebuild it while neutralizing the weapon in the Castle; however, he realizes that it is not possible, and that he cannot shut it down anymore. Consequently, he decides to isolate the First City in a sandbox, locking it away forever (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 12).
But meanwhile, using the notes that Hopper and Major Steinback have left behind when they escaped, Dido's Men in Black manage to rebuild the equipment they needed to access the digital world, in their premises in Brussels.This equipment does not consists in actual scanners, but rather combinations with helmets that can transfer the spirit of the user into a virtual avatar, while the body remains on Earth.
Because of this equipment, the men in black are able to access the First City, generated by the factory's Supercomputer since they know the access codes. Only children, however, can use this equipment (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 4).
To face the danger that the First City has become, Franz creates a sort of barrier, supposed to block the negative effects of the castle of the First City, wile leaving its useful effects untouched (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 12). It is possible to access the First City from the Heart of Lyoko, by entering the code AELITA, which opens the way to a bridge; then, you have to chose a key that emits a music note to open the door between Lyoko and the First City.
To fill Lyoko with information and fasten its creation, Hopper and his team invent the “memory-snatching” machine. Under the form of an electronic glove, this fantastic tool enable to steal the memories of a person, and then reinject these in the digital world.
In order to manage Lyoko and the First City, Hopper creates an artificial intelligence that he calls XANA, and entrusts it with the mission of being the “guardian” of the two virtual worlds. Which is why XANA can modify the environment in the First City and manage it as it pleases. The final objective is to turn XANA into a digital equivalent of a human being. This is where Aelita steps in her father's project. The little girl regularly goes to the First City to teach XANA the mysteries of emotions. This relationship developed into a very strong friendship between Aelita and XANA, that Franz trusts entirely.
In case the Men in Black would get hold of the Supercomputer, Hopper programs the Code Down. Its purpose is to erase Lyoko, the First City, XANA and all the data in the Supercomputer, which would leave an empty shell of useless hardware, even deprived of an Operating System. Yet, as much as possible, Hopper wants to avoid activating this destruction code at any cost.
1994 : Hunted down again
Besides his downright illegal activites, Franz Hopper still fulfils his function as a science teacher at Kadic academy, where he teaches to Aelita and her best friend Richard Dupuis, amongst others. Franz is very well aware that his current life is that of a man who is tracked by secret services and the most powerful international organizations. Which is why he creates the mail adress firstname.lastname@example.org for Richard, whom he knows to be his daughter's best friend. Thus, if one day, Aelita was to be in danger, Hopper could use it to explain Richard how to help her, because Hopper knows that if he was to be arrested, Aelita would most likely be also in danger (cf. The Army of Nothing, chapter 5).
The 2nd of May 1994, a video of Anthea, who is still a hostage, is sent to Franz. Through this video, Hannibal Mago's Green Phoenix intends to force Waldo into taking Project Carthage up again. However, Anthea shouts and begs him to fly away and give the project up. Less than a month later, Grigory Nictalopus erases her memory with the “memory-snatching” gloves, that he probably obtained through Walter Stern (cf. The Army of Nothing, chapter 7). Whether Franz, in the end, did receive this video or not, is not known.
Meanwhile, Dido's services find Waldo's track in the Paris region. The Men in Black contact Walter Stern who has become, over time, Hopper's friend. They threat to send him in prison for the rest of his life, unless he collaborates by revealing Hopper's hideout, in exchange of which they promise him a protection from the criminal organization (Green Phoenix) for which he worked. Walter is left with no other choice than accepting and betraying Franz. For the same reasons, he gives them the plans of the “memory-snatching” machine (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 5).
The 1st of June 1994, Major Steinback meets Dido in a bar, near Kadic Academy. The leader of the Men in Black informs her that she knows that she and Hopper have still been working on the Carthage Project and rebuilt the First City. Indeed, thanks to her equipment in Brussels and her access codes, she can get into the First City. Dido is here to persuade Hopper and his team to abandon the project. Because after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Cold War ended and along with it, the global tensions subsided. The fruitless Carthage Project had brought a colossal bunch of trouble and costed its weight in gold, but it had no reason to exist anymore. Moreover, the powerful ones trusted less and less the project that had proven that it could turn against its own creators since the “Hirst City” had turned out to be out of control. Dido wants te world to forget Carthage, and this is why she erased the memory of all those who participated in the project. For the same reasons, she wants to find Hopper to destroy his Supercomputer and erase some classified information contained in his memory. Major Steinback understands that Dido has the “memory-snatching” machine while only she, Hopper and Walter Stern know about its existence. From which she deduces that Walter Stern betrayed them, revealed the plans of the device and gave away their location to the Men in Black (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 4).
When Franz learns that from the Major, he decides to run away with Aelita and to create a video diary based on his memory and those of Major Steinback, that he gets using the “memory-snatching” machine.
Major Steinback decides to gather all the people who were involved in the secret project of Lyoko, under the false pretext that Walter wants to fire all of them, and erases their memories using the same device. As for Hopper, he sees that the code Down is divided into several pieces, so that nobody would be able to recreate it. Walter also gets his memory erased by Major Steinback (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapters 4&5).
The 1st of June 1994, Franz Hopper contacts once again the company Broulet and Brothers to wall up the secret rooms in the Hermitage, so that they cannot be seen from the outside. Hopper modifies himself the plan of the house, but he leaves hints to Aelita in case the events turned badly.
The 3rd of June 1994, at the Hermitage, Franz, nervous, tries to think of a way to keep a safety backup of Lyoko. The problem is that he needs a mass storage support, that would preserve the data for a long time and does not know where to find one. Then, his eyes come across Aelita and he has the idea to use the “memory-snatching” gloves to implant the source code of Lyoko, bit after bit, in her memory. With a key, to decrypt the data if necessary, entrusted to Richard (cf. The Army of Nothing, chapter 12 and Epilogue).
The 6th of June 1994, Franz uses the “memory-snatching” machine as a “memory-implanter” device on Aelita, which causes her memory losses (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 9). The Men in Black find the track of Franz Hopper at the Hermitage and he is forced to leave with Aelita. The child is shot in the head during the escape, so Franz decides to virtualize her on Lyoko to save her life.
The Story of each character:
The Schaeffer family
Franz Hopper (Waldo Schaeffer)
In 1974, Project Carthage begins, with Waldo Schaeffer as one of the scientists of the Project. Waldo est a humanist who wishes to improve the world with this project, that is supposed to provide the whole world with low-cost services, and especially countries in development (cf. The Nameless City, chapter 16).
In 1982, he and Anthea Hopper have a daughter, Aelita, who is born in a military base.
Waldo et Aelita, a simple life in appearance.
In 1985, in Switzerland, Waldo and Anthea find out that the true purpose of Carthage is to create a new lethal weapon. They decide to leave the project and to create Lyoko so that their work would not go to waste and would rather enable them to destroy Carthage.
But Anthea is abducted, and Waldo forced to run away from the Carthage Project. Until 1988, he lives under a new identity, Henry Zopfi, mere employee.
In 1988, Waldo moves in the Paris region with Aelita and changes his name into Franz Hopper, using his second name and Anthea's maiden name. Then, the construction of the Supercomputer begins, and Lyoko is created using the programs he and Anthea developed within Project Carthage. In addition to his secret activities, he becomes a science teacher at Kadic Academy.
The 6th of June 1994, the Men in Black find his track at the Hermitage. He is forced to run awau with Aelita. During the escape, she is gravely hurt, so Franz decides to virtulize her on Lyoko to save her life.
Anthéa Schaeffer, nee Hopper
Anthea Hopper is also one of the scientists who works on Project Carthage. It is probably how she meets Waldo Schaeffer with whom she conceives, in 1982, a daughter who they name Aelita. However, their involvement in an international top-secret project entails a life of constraints and sacrifices. Thus, Aelita is born in a military base.
In 1985, soldier Mark James Hollenback runs away from Project Carthage, abducting Anthea. In his flight, he remains constantly on the move, taking Anthea from one prison to another, during several years. First, she is locked in a lost shed in the Mercantour National Park, in the French Alps. She is then brought in England, then in Morocco. Forced to work for the Green Phoenix, she sometimes rebels to find Waldo and Aelita; then, each time, when she is about to lose hope, her necklace lights up, which is a sign that Hopper is still thinking about her. She answers back using the necklace. The 2 of May 1994, she is forced to record a video message for Waldo. Through this video, Hannibal Mago intends to force Waldo to take the Carthage Project up again, for the Green Phoenix. But Anthea begs him shouting to run away and give up on the project. In reprisal, Mago beats her until she loses consciousness. Less than a month later, Grigory Nictalopus erases her memory, using the “memory-snatching” machine. From now on, she forgets her name and her past, and becomes Memory, Mago's assistant (cf. The Army of Nothing, chapter 7).
In 1982, Aelita is born in a military base of Project Carthage. She lives in the mountains with her parents Waldo and Anthea until the abduction of her mother by Mark Hollenback, in 1985. She then accompanies her father during their long escape and in 1988, she moves to the Hermitage, in the Paris region. There, she meets Richard Dupuis, whose she becomes a friend. But concurrently to her life as a normal student, she is also involved in her father's secret activities: she regularly goes to Lyoko, in the First City, to show XANA how to behave like a human and teach him the mysteries of emotions. XANA becomes her friend and they spend much time together. When, as a measure of precaution, Franz has to do a backup of Lyoko, he uses her memory to save the source code of the digital world. Unfortunately, her brain is saturated, which entails partial memory losses and explains her amnesia. The 6th of June 1994, the Men in Black find Franz and she gets shot in the head while they escape. Gravely wounded, she leaves Franz with no other choice than virtualizing her on Lyoko to save her life.
The Men in Black
Part of a paragovernmental American organization, they are closely related to Project Carthage. Led by Dido from his office in Washington D.C., this organization is, beyond any doubt, very influential, and have unlimited means at their disposal, in terms of diplomacy as well as financial means. Indeed, obtaining the authorizations they need to fulfil their activities never seems to be a trouble, for instance when they need to fly over cities like Brussels or Paris in planes or helicopters. However, they rather seem to care for their discretion and avoid to have to manage this kind of problem with civil administrations like the police. Which proves that the golden rule of this organization, the name of which remains unknown, is secrecy. Moreover, this organization has several field agents dispatched in various locations related to Project Carthage (Brussels, Paris).
Using the notes left by Waldo in spite of his escape, they rebuilt the equipment they needed to access the “First City” in their premises in Brussels. Furthermore, Dido claims that he has the access codes to the First City (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 4).
Dido wants the world to forget Carthage and the “First City”, so she erased the memory of all those who were part of the Project using the “memory-snatching” machine, the plans of which she obtained from Walter Stern. For the same reason, she wants to find Hopper, destroy his Supercomputer and erase some classified information in his memory (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapter 4).
Major Steinback is a woman with a dark curly hairs. She is part of the organization of the Men in Black, but she helps Waldo to run away: indeed, she asserts that Anthea is a close friend, which is why she uses her relations to try and find her. When Waldo moves to the Hermitage, the Major comes to the Paris region with him, and works in the same school under a fake identity. She is now Suzanne Hertz, also a science teacher. She is the one who gets the authorization to refurbish the factory to build the laboratory there. From 1988 to 1994, she works with Franz to create he Supercomputer and Lyoko. Since she ignores the orders from the Men in Black, they consider her to be AWOL.
Mafia-like criminal organization, the Green Phoenix is led by Hannibal Mago, a.k.a. The Magician. This incredibly rich, cunning man with no qualms, does not seem to have hany clear objective, except world domination. This is why he intends to restart the Carthage Project to his own benefits: the organization could then use it as a weapon to enforce its will by pressuring the governments – for instance, by controlling communications. Consequently, the Green Phoenix keeps Anthea as a hostage, to push Waldo Schaeffer into continuing Project Carthage. Besides, the organization uses its colossal financial power to finance Franz' Supercomputer in the factory, without him knowing. In order to do so, the Green Phoenix uses Walter Stern as an intermediary.
Mark James Hollenback (a.k.a. Hannibal Mago a.k.a. The Magician)
Mark James Hollenback is born in 1964 in a fmily of very poor farmers. He joins the army in 1980, at 16 year old. As part of the military, he joins Project Carthage in 1984 at the age of 20. In 1985, for an unknown reason (most likely, to pressure Waldo Shaeffer into taking the work up again), he abducts Anthaa Schaeffer, joins the Green Phoenix and manages to cover his tracks to lose the agents who are after him. Afterwards, he changes his name, becoming Hannibal Mago, and manages to rise to the head of the Green Phoenix criminal organization. He met Dido three times (cf. The Nameless Town, chapter 16).
Walter Stern (Ulrich's father)
In the 90s, Walter dwells in the Paris region and works for the Green Phoenix. He meets Franz Hopper who needs funds to continue his researches (Supercomputer complex). Therefore, the Green Phoenix orders him to help the runaway scientist, by providing him with help and financial support, in exchange of which he is bound to communicate the results of Hopper's researches. Over time, he becomes Franz' friend.
However, Dido's agency contacts Walter, who reveals Hopper's location in exchange of a protection from the Green Phoenix and a possibility to put his illegal activities in the criminal organization to rest. The Men in Black take advantage of it to get the plans of the “memory-snatching” machine.
After she finds out that Walter has betrayed Hopper, Major Steinback erases his memory using this very machine (cf. The Return of the Phoenix, chapters 4&5).
Now, I think I really deserved some vacation. I'd better stop translating for the next month, because you know, my phoquing mémoire won't leave me alone until I give it some attention _________________

Le titre du tome 4 était un long débat x.x Surtout quand j'ai appris ce qu'est vraiment L'armée du néant. Nous avons eu les idées “The Army of Nothing”, “The Army of the Void”, “The Army of Nothingness”... “The Army of the Void” ne marchait pas du tout. Et quant à “Nothing” vs “Nothingness”, je pense qu'ils veulent dire le même chose. Ça l'inspire l'idée d'une armée de XANA beacoup plus dangereuse que celle des robots en tome 3. “Nothing” est plus punchy, je crois, et plus menaçant. A mon avis, le “ness” extra diminuer un peu l'impact du titre.
Et à la fin, je ne veux pas changer la couverture
Moi, j'ai déjà lu le tome 4, mais je ne veux pas mettre cette page en ligne jusqu'à nous avons terminée ce tome, étant donnée que l'auteur fait référence à l'épilogue. (Kelsey do not read this page until you've finished reading the book or I will come after you) Donc euh... à octobre!
