How does diplomacy work? · 5:24pm
Well, in fiction, anyway? I've realized that in the Wolf in Pony's Clothing universe, that some of the stories are going to involve the politics and scheming in Canterlot, Stalliongrad, and among the wolves as the ponies and wolves figure out how exactly they're going to deal with each other, especially as they discover more about their pasts and some of the uglier parts. Suffice it for now to say that the wolves and the Crystal ponies have a history which is about to become very important given that they're neighbors again.
So does anyone know of any stories, be they on site here or elsewhere, that have diplomatic dealings as part of or even the main element of the story that I can take a gander at for inspiration? Just about the only ones I know of are the Retief stories by Keith Laumer, which I've read a little of.
Thanks for any help.
