Chapter 11
End of Discussion

[Construction Wing]

“Alright Emerald. How are the construction ideas I gave for the inner and outer walls of the empire going?” asked Hanako as she followed Emerald through his workshop.

“It was a bit hard at first, but we figured out a way to in case the metal into the crystal walls.”

“How so?”

“Well we tried having the crystal grow on it. But it would’ve taken years from it to grow at the rate it is. So we figure why not teleport the item into the crystal.” Emerald said as he pointed to a unicorn teleporting a piece of metal plate into a chunk of crystal. “We’re still working on how to make it durable inside the crystal, but it’s a start.”

“Excellant. When you figure out a way to make it durable, give me a call when you do okay?”

“As you command Lady Hanako.” Emerald said as he went back to work. Just as Hanako was about to exit the Construction Wing, a familiar pony enters into the room as she walks over to the human.

“Oh hey Amber, what’s up?”

“We have a bit of a problem.”

“Is this about that piece of cheesecake that had your name on it? If so, then let me just say that is wasn’t me that ate it.”

“Not that’s not the...wait that you ate my strawberry cheesecake?” Amber asked as she glared at Hanako, who was trying to act all innocent.

“What? No, why would I do that to my favorite right hoof mare?”

“.....Anyway, that’s not the reason why I’m here...though it will be later on.”

“What’s the problem?”

“It’s the ponies of Equestria. They want to speak with you about what happen with what that Cadence pony did.”

“Did you tell them that I’m not handing them over until I speak with their rulers?”

“I did, but the lavender unicorn kept on making statements about how this is wrong, you can’t keep ponies here against their will, and something else. Truthfully I wasn’t paying attention to most of the things they were saying.”

“And here I thought I was gonna call it a day after checking up on how the work was going with Brimstone and the others.” Hanako sighed as she motion Amber to lead her to where Twilight and others are waiting at. “Lead the way Amber, let’s get this over with so I can relax in my room.”

[Throne Room]

“Is it too late to turn back now and tell them that I’m not in the mood to talk with them?” Hanako asked, only for Amber to shake her head.

“We’re already here, so we might as well see how this will go.”

“Dammit, there’s go my good mood for today.” Hanako said as she open the doors to the throne room. As she and Amber entered the room, Twilight, Shining Armor, Cadance, and Rainbow Dash turned their attention at the duo as they entered. To the Ronin surprise, Cadance and Shining Armor were in the room as well. “Alright everypony I’m here, what is it that you want?”

“Oh good, you’re here Lady Hanako.” Twilight said as she bow down to the human. “I was wondering if we can have a little talk about what happen with what my sister-in-law did?”

“Let me guess, you’re here to try to change my mind about keeping your guard in jail until your rulers get here to talk about this right?”

“Yes, that is the reason why we’re here.” Twilight said as she watches Hanako and Amber walk towards her and her friends. “I know what my sister-in-law did was wrong, and she’s sorry for what she did.”

“I doubt it, but continue.”

“But you can’t keep the royal guards as a means to negotiate with Princess Celestia and Princess Luna.”

“And why can’t I? Your dumbass sister-in-law was the one that didn’t take my warning seriously, and look how that turned out.”

“Hey! That’s my wife you’re calling an idiot creature!” Shining Armor yelled.

“I calls them as I see them. Your wife is a idiot what she did and you’re a bigger one for letting this happen. Now why don’t you shut up and just stand there like the knight you are and let your sister continue.” She said as she turned her attention back on Twilight. “Please continue.”

“R-Right...anyway. You can’t keep the ponies here, it would be an act of war and you would be in trouble with Celestia and Luna then you’re already in.”

“And how can I be in more trouble than how I am already in? I told you what would happen if you were to go snooping around in places that you weren’t allowed to go into.”

“Because once we return to Canterlot and tell the princesses about you, You can kiss that throne good-bye!” Rainbow Dash said as she zoomed in front of Hanako’s face.

“Over the empire’s dead body!” Amber yelled as she stood in between. “We choosed Hanako to be are leader rule over the Crystal Empire and the ponies inside it. You think we would lay down our weapons to a bunch of rulers who couldn’t come here themselves?”

“This kingdom belongs to Equestria, or more importantly Princess Cadance.”

“We would rather have Chrysalis rule us then have you ponies in charge-.”

“Amber that’s enough.” Hanako said as she tugged Amber’s tail. “Don’t get caught up in the fire that this pegasus is starting.”

“Y-You’re right. Sorry, my lady.” Amber said as she lowered her head in shame.

“Serves you right-” Before Rainbow Dash could finish, the pegasus was sent falling to the floor of the throne room by Hanako quickly punching her in the face. Everyone except for Amber who was smirking was surprised at what happen. “OW! What the buck!”

“I only came here because I wanted a civilise talk. But it would seem that not everyone here is civilise.”

“You punched me in the bucking nose! What the hay is wrong with you!”

“You were in my personal space without permission. Don’t get into my personal space like that again or else.” Hanako said as she flex her hand before looking over at Amber who was smirking in delight. “Too far?”

“A bit yes, but at least you didn’t kill her so that’s good.”

“I guess that will do for now.” The Ronin said as she looked back at Twilight and her friends. “After butting in on to the conversation when they should’ve let you finish. This proves my point that most of you guys, mainly those three over there. I will wait until your princesses to get here so I can talk with then.”

“It would be a wise and smart idea my Lady.” Amber said as she started to make her way out of the room along with Hanako.

“Wait!” Twilight yelled as she caught the attention of the two leaving the throne room. “What about the ponies that you have in prison? Won’t you at least let them out so they can-.”

“Don’t get your hopes up Twilight. You can thank your three friends for blowing the conversation that we were trying to up into flames with their outburst.”


“Lady Hanako is finish with the conversation. You have wasted your time, and our time with this fruitless endeavor.” Amber said as she and Hanako continued on walking. “And here I thought you ponies from Equestria were more civilize. Guess I was wrong.” As the duo leave the room, Twilight turned her attention towards Shining Armor, Cadance, and Rainbow Dash.

“Are you three trying to make things difficult for us?! We’re trying to have a civilise conversation where we could meet a common ground. Not just run on emotions!”

“But Twilight, you can’t actually trust this...human can you? For all we know, that thing could be planning on taking over Equestria or something.” Rainbow Dash said as she pointed a hoof to her nose. “Look what she did to my nose. Not to mention how it mopped the floor with your brother like he was a little filly.”

“I’m right here you know?” Shining Armor interjected. “But she’s not lying Twily. Don’t you think that this creature might be planning something?”

“If she was going to do something, then she would’ve done so by locking all of us up. Not to mention she did warn us about trying to sneak around in places that we’re not allowed in.”

“But you can’t expect us not to look around for clues?” Cadence said as she trotted next to Shining Armor. “You saw what she is capable of right. She could be a threat to Equestria.”

“Or a powerful ally for us. From what I see she’s treating everypony in Empire with respect. She’s also helping out with the reconstruction that she’s putting into motion.”

“Who said are you on Twilight? That thing, or us?” Rainbow Dash asked.

“I’m on neither said. I just want this to be a civilized conversation where both sides can benefit each other. But seeing how that didn’t go so well, we’ll have to hope that the princesses can do something about it.”

[Hanako’s Room]

“This has been a somewhat productive day...despite the incident in the throne room.” Hanako said as she enters into her private chamber with Amber following her from behind.

“I’m sorry Hanako. If I had known that it would turn out like this, then I wouldn’t have called you into the throne room.”

“It was bound to happen sooner or later. I’m just glad that it’s nighttime and I can finally get some sleep.”

“I told you that you should’ve rested up a bit before checking on the others to see how they’re doing.”

“So sue me if I wanted to be sure that everything was going on track. A project like this can’t be taken lightly. Especially now seeing how I’m having Chrysalis and her changelings move in as well.” Hanako began to take her armor, weapon, and clothes off as she set them onto the side of her bed before flopping on top of the bed. “How’s that going by the way?”

“It was a bit difficult at first, but we were able to find a place for them to live.”

“Where are they now?”

“In the Crystal Mines underneath the Empire. Seeing how we have some of the ponies mine the place, Chrysalis suggest that they move in there to help us mine as well seeing how they want to prove their loyalty to you.”

“Guess that makes sense. They can live there for as long as they want. Everything seem to be in order.”

“There is one thing that I would like to say before you can call it a day.” Amber said as she walks over to Hanako. “One of the black knights have notice that there have holes surrounding parts of the ground around the empire outside of the walls.”

“You think someone is trying to break in?”

“We think so, but we have no idea who it is that’s trying to get in from underground.”

“Have a group of dark knights patrol area this time. If they see anything that might be the cause of the holes around the outer walls, then have them capture it or them and bring it or them to the dungeon until I wake up.”

“As you command Hanako.” Amber said as sharted making her way out of Hanako’s room. “Is there anything else you need from me?”

“Keep your eyes on Cadance, Shining Armor, and Rainbow Dash. From what I saw in the throne room, I have a feeling that they might do something stupid.”

“I’ll inform the knights and ninjas to keep their eyes on them. Till then, you need to get your rest for tomorrow.”

“Let me guess, more royal duties?”

“For the most part yes, but you’ll need to come by the barracks to pick out four ponies to be your personal guards for when you go to meet with the other ambassadors from different countries, or when you’re traveling from here to Equestria.”

“Is that really necessary?”

“You’re species from another world that no pony has ever seen, you’re possibly the only human here so many might try to capture you for faust knows what, and you’re running a kingdom that’s still trying to recover from Sombra’s ruling.”

“....Okay I see what you mean by that. Fine, I’ll head over to the barracks after my royal duties. But I have to test their strength to see if they the skills to back it up.” Amber nodded as she continued to walk out of the room. Leaving the ronin to sigh in annoyance before closing her eyes, and letting sleep take her.
