Translation of this fan comic: http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=19646279 which completely broke my heart. Author's notes are flagged with numbers and explained at the bottom.

1519年, フランス ロワール地方, クロ-リュセ城
[1519, Loire, France. Clos Lucé Castle]

だめだ、だめだ。これもうまくいかない...
L: No good, no good. This isn't going well either...

_が出るな、レオナルド。
E: ____ Leonardo. 1

エツィオ
L: Ezio

さっきから何を唸っている
E: What were you just groaning about?

ちょっと遺言状の再々再検討をね...
L: Just reviewing my will & testament.

Page 2
これだけはしっかり決めておかないと
L: I've got to get this finalized

不肖の弟子たちが遺産で揉めるのはいますからね
Since my unworthy disciples will dispute the inheritance.

ああ、でも心配だ。
Aah, but I worry.

葬儀の進行も細かく指示しておかなければ
I must ready detailed instructions for the funeral also.

お前の几帳面は変わらんな 
E: ...You're as methodical as ever.

性分ってやつは一生つきまとう。住処がどれだけ変わってもね。
L: It's been in my nature my whole life. No matter how much my home changes. 2

住処...か。昔の俺たちからすればこの平穏は信じかたいだろうな
E: Home...eh? Given the old us, it's hard to believe in this peace and quiet, isn't it?

ええ、本当に
L: Yes, that's true
(thinking) 3
流された血でうす赤く染まっていた
花も水も永遠の都も
今はもう思い出で語るだけの遥か遠い場所だ
Flowers and water and the eternal city4 all stained pale red by the blood that flowed
Now it is just a far off place we only speak of in memories.

まったくあの頃のあなたときたち
血も浮名も垂れ流しで
L: Indeed, for you in those days, blood and scandal both flowed freely. 5

泣いた女性がどれだけいたか
私が知っているだけでもいいと
L: What about those women that cried...? I think I might know.

昔の話だ
E: That's an old story.

ええ、ええ
昔の話ですよ
L: Yes, yes. A thing of the past.

Page 3:
昔話ついでに白状しておきましょうかね
ご存知でした?
私、あなたの事が好きだったんですよ
L: Speaking of old tales, how about I make a confession... Did you know? I liked you.

友人としてではなく、ね
Not as a friend, you know

それも遺言か?
E: Is that also...your testament6, Leonardo?

はは, ただの思い出話ですよ。
L: Haha, just reminiscing.

Page 4:
若い頃は己の鉄の理性を呪ったりしたものですが
今なら分かります
E: When I was young, I used to curse this iron reason of mine but now I understand

ああ、あの辛く若々しい時代は
今日この日々のためにあったのだ とね
L: Ah, those painful, days of our youth are so that today we can have days like this, right?

お前には世話になりっぱなしだった。
何も返せなくて
済まなかった
E: I owe so much to you. I'm sorry I didn't do anything in return.

何をおっしゃいます
水くさい話はなしですよ
L: What are you talking about? No need for formalities. 7

さ、終わったぞ
E: Fine, I'll stop.

今日は何だか体の調子がいい
少し絵筆をとりましょうか
エツィオ、つきあっていただけますか
L: I'm feeling somewhat better today. I think I'll take up the brush for a bit. Ezio, will you join me?

Aaaaand the sadness follows. ;___; Hope you enjoyed!

Translation notes:
Several parts of this broke my brain, either because of the way they spoke, words used, or just because/
1 - I could not for the life of me make out that one kanji and so that sentence will haunt me forever. He's telling Leonardo not to do something, that's all I can tell.
2 - 住処 is literally "habitat, dwelling, house" so Ezio's line about peace (and the subject change) kind of threw me off.
3 - I'm pretty sure these are Leonardo's thoughts.
4 - The kanji 都 is "capital/city" so I think he's just using a flowery word for Rome.
5 - Yet another line that broke my brain. I originally thought Ezio said this (because of the alternating speech bubbles, but the use of あなた makes me think it's Leonardo.
6 - The word used (遺言) is different from the "last will/testament" used above. This one could also mean "last request".
7 - If I'm reading it right, Leonardo says what amounts to "It's not a formal story", which I took to mean, "Don't be so distant/formal." And so although Ezio litterally says "It's over", I took that to mean, "I'll stop (being formal) then."
