Chapter 19: Introductions

Chapter 19


“How many times do I have to tell you!? I am a diplomate of the Royal Family of Equestria! And Nephew to the rulers of Equestria! Prince Blueblood! You will allow me entrance into the Crystal Empire at once!” Blueblood said as Brimstone stared at the young prince with an stern expression on his face.

“And I told you just like I told those two mares over there. I don’t know who the buck you are and I don’t give a buck. You’re not going to step foot into this place until the ruler gets here and says otherwise.”

“I can have you sent to the dungeon you under develop mud pony! Now let us in or else.” He said as Brimstone stood up and overshadowed the royal colt with hammer in hoof.

“Or else what you little spoiled brat? If you’re a representation of royalty in Equestria, then Lady Hanako would have nothing to do with you Equestrians if you’re this rude.” Blueblood blinked in surprise by how tall the earth pony was and was about to reply, only for Celestia to pull him away from the blacksmith.

“Blueblood, we’re on a mission to help the Crystal Empire-”

“Which we don’t need seeing how the situation was taken care of.” Brimstone said interrupting the solar princess as they deadpan at him for a moment before looking back at Blueblood.

“We’re here to help them, not to start a war. Do keep your emotions in check or else I will have to send you back to the Castle.”

“But this is taking too long! Don’t these ponies know royalty when they see it?” Blueblood said as Celestia sighed.

“They have been away for 1,000 years. It’ll take them time for them to remember Luna and I. Now then if you could, please wait with Twilight and the others so that I can talk to the colt you rudely insulted.” The white alicorn said as Blueblood huffed and walked off towards Twilight and the others.

“Care to explain why you brought that spoiled colt with you?” Brimstone asked.

“I thought this would be a good learning experience for him to learn from. In case I would have to leave him in charge of running Equestria if I were off on diplomatic meeting with another nation.” She answered, only for Brimstone to snort in amusement.

“Yeah, because he’ll do a perfect job at running your kingdom to the ground. Especially with a personality like that.” He said sarcastically.

“I hope you can forgive him for his rudeness.”

“So long as he behaves himself and not pull a stunt like that in the empire, then I guess I can forgive him for being an idiot.” Brimstone said as the doors to the Crystal Empire started to open up. “Seems like the ruler is here.” He said as Celestia looked up to see Hanako and Amber making their way through the open doors.

“Alright, what did you do this time Brimstone.” Hanako said as she deadpans at him.

“Not my fault this time. The Equestrians started it.” he said pointing a hoof over to where Princess Celestia and the others were. Hanako looked over at them with a blanked expression for a moment before sighing.

“Why am I not surprise that they would do something like this. I take it that Rainbow Dash and Cadence were the ones that started it?”

“Well them and that colt with the blonde mane.” Brimstone points a hoof at Blueblood who was looking at Hanako in disgust.

“Who is that hairless monkey? And why is it talking to that pony?” Blueblood said as everyone stared at him like a deer in headlights. “What? Am I the only one who sees the hairless monkey? Why is it trying to think it’s a pony like us?”

“Blueblood if you have any sense in that head of yours you would-” Before Shining Armor could finish, Blueblood walked past him and up towards Hanako who was glaring daggers at the stallion.

“You, monkey creature. Bring us your master at once. And also bring us something to eat while you’re at it as well as you take us to your master, you make me a dandelion sandwich.” he said as he clapped his hooves together as a means to get her to hurry up. There was an awkward moment of silence in the air. The only thing that broke the silence was the sound of the ponies moving away from Blueblood as Brimstone just smirked.

“Oh this is gonna be good~” Brimstone said as he heard Hanako slowly unsheathing her sword slowly. “Remember Lady Hanako, you can’t kill him unless he attacked you or anypony in the Empire.” He said as the human let our a angry grunt before placing her sword back into her sheath. Brimstone smiled at her for a moment before looking back at Prince Blueblood. “You really must be an idiot. You know you just insulted the ruler of the Crystal Empire, right?”

“.....This must be a joke right?”

“Is there a problem pony from Equestria?” Amber asked as Blueblood snorted in disgust.

“That’s Prince Blueblood to you commoner. And you must be joking me if you think that this hairless monkey is supposed to be the ruler of the Crystal Empire?”

“Okay, call me a hairless monkey one more time, and I will break that horn on your head and shove it up your ass blondie.” Hanako threaten as Blueblood looked over at her in shock.

“Are you threatening me you hair-” Blueblood mouth was shut closed by Luna’s magic as she quickly pulled him away and placed back to where Twilight and the others were standing. Hanako blinked in surprise by this as she looked over at the Equestrians, mainly Princess Celestia and Princess Luna.

“I take it you two are the rulers of Equestria?” She asked as the two tall mares nodded.

“I am very sorry about Blueblood.” Celestia said as she glared back at the mouth sealed unicorn. “He’s a bit….head strong.”

“We told you we shouldn’t have brought that spoiled brat of a pony here.” Luna whispered as Celestia deadpan at her. “Don’t give me that look, you know I was right about bringing Blueblood with us.”

“I’m willing to let it slide for now. But if he keeps this up, I will do what I said I will do to him.” Hanako sighed as she looked over at the others ponies. “That also applies to you ponies as well. Pull any crap that Blueblood did, and I will shove my foot so far up your asses that Amber will need the Holy knight squad to pull my foot out of you, got it?” She asked as everyone nodded quickly. She smiled at them before turning her attention back at Celestia and Luna. “Mind telling me your names?”

“R-Right, My name is Princess Celestia. Ruler of Equestria.” Celestia said as she and Luna bowed their heads to Hanako.

“And I am Princess Luna. Younger sister and co-ruler of Equestria.”

“Please, don’t bow down to me like that. It’s a bit unsettling and I don’t like it.” Hanako said as they both stood up. “My name is Hanako. Chosen ruler and possibly Champion of the Crystal Empire.”

“The champion part is debatable.” Amber commented as she quickly looked off to the side to avoid Hanako’s glare.

“Anyway, I take it you’re here to assist me in the Diamond Dog invasion?” Hanako said as both mares nodded. “A bit late don’t you think...about three days late. What took you guys so long?”

“It takes a while for us to get an entire army to come here on train. We still have some of the pegasi flying here seeing how there wasn’t that much room on the train.” Luna stated, as Hanako sighed in disappointment.

“You should’ve sent a scout here first before sending your army here.”

“What do you mean?”

“Because the threat is taken care of. The Diamond Dogs have been rounded up and are in the dungeon for questioning.” Amber said as both rulers blinked in surprise by this. “Like Hanako said, you should’ve sent a scout to survey the area first before sending your army here. It’s not a very smart tactic, nor does it show how smart you are in military tactics.”

“Ah...I see...Cadence could you please send word to the army that they can return home.” Celestia asked as the princess of love teleported off.

“You haven’t been in a war before have you?”

“N-No….No we have.”

“We have a lot to talk about, but first let’s head inside to talk about the negotiation for your soldiers that Cadence stupidly got in trouble when she tried to have them sneak into areas that they weren’t allowed in.” Hanako said as she motions for them to enter. Celestia nodded as they began to make their way inside the Kingdom, but soon paused as she looked back at the royal guards.

“You all may return to Canterlot or stay here for us to return. It’s up to you all.”

“We will wait for your return Princess Celestia.” said one of the guards as the white alicorn smile as quickly followed after Hanako. Once inside, the doors behind the Equestrians slowly began to closed and began to make their way through the streets. As they made their way through the streets of the Crystal Empire, Princess Celestia and Luna were taken by surprise from a multiple of things. Mainly the changelings walking around helping other ponies in their daily lives, or helping with the construction.

“Dear Celestia! Why are there Changelings all over this place!?” Prince Blueblood yelled, which kinda caught the attention of some of the ponies and changelings around them.

“Do you mind keeping your voice down Blueblood? You’re drawing attention to us, and you yelling isn’t making things better.” Shining Armor said as Blueblood huffed.

“I too would like to know why they’re here as well if you don’t mind? Last time we saw them was during the time they tried to take over Canterlot during Princess Cadence’s wedding.” Celestia asked as she smiled and waved at some of the crystal ponies and changelings who waved back at her.

“Long story short. They’re in trouble, so I figured we let them in and help them.”

“That seems a bit risky don’t you think?” Luna asked. “How do you know they won’t try to cause a riot or overthrow you with your back turned?”

“I doubt they would try that. Especially after proving themselves during the invasion three days ago.”

“Seriously? You must be really stupid if you think you can trust these filthy bugs.” Blueblood said as he eyed the changelings in disgust. “A changeling will do whatever it has to in order to survive. Especially when they want to take out someplace like this.”

“I’m willing to take that chance.” Hanako said as Amber and Celestia noticed the human placing a hand on her sword along with a stern smile on her face.

“Prince Blueblood, as it is an honor to have you here in our kingdom. Please due try to refrain yourself from saying anything offensive that might provoke somepony into attacking you out of rage.” Amber said as the blonde unicorn scoffed to her request, only to take notice to Hanako’s death glare and her slowly unsheathing her sword a bit before snorting in annoyance.

“Very well knight. I will take your advice for now and refrain myself on commenting on your ruler’s poor choices.” Amber rolled her eyes as she looked over at Hanako, who placed her sword back into her sheath. Both her and Luna sighed in relief before blinking in surprise as they unknowingly imitated each other. There was an awkward moment of silence While Hanako was busy leading the group to the castle, Amber moved over to Luna as she tapped her on the shoulder.

“I take it you saw Hanako getting ready to cut your nephew in half for that comment?”

“Yes...which make me a bit worried on how she treats her subjects.”

“Hanako knows that she can’t kill him unless given a reason. So far either Prince Blueblood is doing this on purpose, or he thinks that because he’s royalty he can do whatever he wants.”

“I get the feeling he’s doing it on purpose just so that he can try and ruin Lady Hanako’s reputation.” Luna whispered as Amber snorted in amusement to what she said. “What’s so funny?”

“Trust me, I doubt her reputation could get slandered by that colt...hey would you be up for a bet?”

“What kind of bet?” Luna asked, eyeing the mare suspiciously.

“To see how long it would take for Blueblood to get thrown out of the castle. I’m betting on a good thirty minutes.”

“You would place a bet on your own ruler’s misery in dealing with Blueblood...how do I know she won’t kill him or worse?”

‘I’ll take her sword once we’re inside the castle. She isn’t allowed to do much with it anyway, but you have nothing to fear. So, how about it Princess Luna?”

“What you’re doing is underhanded and dishonorable….thirty-five bits says that she’ll chuck him out the window in less than twenty minutes at best.”

“Oh you are so going to lose this best Princess~”

“Oh no my dear little pony, it is you who are going to lose this bet~!” Both mare smirked at each other for a moment before going back to following Hanako and the others.
