Chapter 7:

Meeting and Consequences

“This has been a busy yet productive day.” Hanako said as she jumped onto her bed to relax. “I least know I can relax for a while before something else happens.” Just as she said that, Amber appeared next to her bed. “Dammit.”

“Forgive the intrigan my lady, but we have a bit of an….interesting infestation at the front gates.”

“What do you by infestation?” Hanako asked as she raise a brow. “Are we being invaded by giant bugs or something?”

“No, they’re saying that they’re changelings and their queen would like to talk with you.”

“Should I be worry about them trying to take over the kingdom?”

“I doubt it. Judging by the looks of thing, they look like they’re about to pass out due to starvation.”

“....Alright, bring them in and have the white mages patch up any changelings that are injured. But have the Black Mages and Knights on ready, just incase they try to do something stupid.”

“At once my lady.” Amber said as she exit the room.

“So much for relaxing for the rest of the day.” Hanako said as she moved from off her bed and towards the door near her room.

(Main Street of The Crystal Empire)

The moment Hanako stepped out of the castle with Amber by her side. Things begin to escalate as she saw the group called changelings on one side. While on the other side we’re Twilight, her friends, the Royal Guards, and Cadence who was on the verge of killing someone on the other side. Judging by the way things were turning out, she can only guess that each group met each other under unfortunate terms.

“What the hay are you doing here Chrysalis?” Rainbow Dash said as she appeared in front Chrysalis. “Wasn’t attacking Canterlot enough to get it through your head that you can’t take over Equestria?”

“I am not here to start a war with you ponies of Equestria. I am here to speak with this kingdom’s ruler.”

“Like we believe that coming from somepony like you!” Cadence yelled as her horn started to glow. “You’ll probably just try to use your mind control spell on her to have her hand over the Crystal Empire to you.”

“Now to be fair. If she were to do that to me, I would cut her head off before her brain could process what just happen to her.” Hanako said getting the attention of both groups. “Now care to explain what’s going on here? Amber here said that the changeling queen wanted to talk with me about something. I’m gonna take a wild guess the ponies with the bug like features are the changelings correct?” Chrysalis nodded and was about to say something, only for Cadence to interrupt.

“You need to kick them out of your kingdom at once!”

“Why should I?”

“Because they’ll try to take over it just like they tried to do during my wedding in Canterlot.”

“Chrysalis was it? Is what she’s saying is true?” Chrysalis simply nodded.

“We only invaded because we were desperate for love. After what the ponies did to my mother all those years ago, we couldn’t take any chances when it comes to negotiating with them.”

“So that gave you the right to invade and attack our home?”

“What would you do if your entire species is on the verge of destruction?”

“Something other than invading a country you idiot!”

“Who are you calling an idiot you mule!”

“Both of you shut the hell up!” Hanako yelled as she got both of their attentions. “Amber, take Chrysalis inside and have her wait for me in my room so we can talk later on.”

“At once my lady.” Amber said as she lead Chrysalis inside.

“As for you bitch, don’t tell me how to run my kingdom and who I can or can not trust got it?”

“You’re making a grave mistake don’t you know who you just let into my kingdom?”

“First of all it’s my kingdom not yours. Second, the only one that made a grave mistake would have to be having your soldiers sneaking around my kingdom.” This took everyone except Cadence by surprise by Hanako’s statement.

“I have no idea what you’re talking about.”

“Don’t play that innocent act with me horse. I had my ninjas follow you talking to a few of your soldiers, and ordered them to sneak around the off limit area of the kingdom.”

“That a bold accusation Lady Hanako. Have you any proof of such a thing?”

“Oh I was hoping you said that.” Hanako snapped her finger as Poison Cross and a random pony came walking in as they tossed a tied up royal guard pony to the ground. “Poison Cross, did the guards you and the other capture earlier say they were under orders to sneak around the off limit areas?”

“Two of them told the truth while the others said they did it on their own without orders from their princess. We even used the time mages to look in their past to see if they were telling the truth.”

“You saved the memories in something right?”

“We used some specially made crystals for something like this.”

“Good, that can be useful for when we negotiate with their princess for their citizens.”

“You’re holding them for ransom?” Rarity asked in shock.

“You can’t do that to them. They have families and kids.” said Twilight. “Can’t you just give them a slap on the wrist and let them go?”

“They should’ve thought of that before they follow their greenhorn of a princess. I mean really? When I say I’m having you guys being spied on by my ninja ponies, I really mean that you’re being spied on. But don’t worry, I won’t kill them or anything stupid. They’ll stay in the dungeon to clean the place up.”

“You’ll regret doing that creature. When Celestia hears about this you’ll wish-.” Cadence growled only for her crown to be cut in two. This startled every besides the crystal ponies.

“I would be careful with your words greenhorn. Otherwise you’ll be leaving the kingdom without a tongue.” Hanako said as she started to walked back into the castle. “Now if you’ll excuse me I have a queen to go talk to.”

(Private Chambers)

“So Queen Chrysalis, what is it that you wanted to talk to me about?” Hanako asked as she hand a cup of tea to the changeling queen.

“Well… I was wanting to ask if my kind, along with myself, can live here in the empire.” She replied, thanking Hanako for the tea as she grabbed it with her levitation magic.

“From what I got from the ponies of Equestria, you invaded Canterlot for love if I am correct about it? How do I know this isn’t some kind of false act in trying to take over the kingdom?” Hanako asked as she took a sip from her tea. “Not that you’re lying or anything due to your condition you and the others are in, I just want to see how you would respond to this and a few questions I wanna ask you.”

“I understand. Now, as for your question, it’s because my kind are dying off since there has been a lack of food. However, there is a way to solve that here in the crystal empire and it involves Cadences magic and the magic she possess. Crystalline Love.” Chrysalis explained as she set down her teacup.

“So your species requires the emotion of love in order to survive? That’s an interesting way for your species to survive. Does it really matter what kind of love it is or what? Because if it requires that pink horse with wings magic, then I would rather find an alternative.”

“We feed on any emotions. But primarily, love helps us because it also restores our magic and makes our transformations easier.” She said, taking another sip of tea.

“Okay, I think I can have the colts in the lab do something about that. My next question is what happen in the past between the negotiations your mother had with the ponies of Equestria?”

“My mother was, excuse my prench, a total bitch. I tried to not raise my hive off of her because she forces everyone to slave around. Plus, she insulted Celestia by saying the reason why one of the administrators was on her side was because she slept with him the night before.”

“And the invasion of Canterlot wasn’t something that your mother would do?”

“I was desperate! We’ve been starving for almost 8 months!! What would you have done if it was the same for your subjects?” She retorted, coughing a little and then apologizing for the outburst.

“Talking helps, but I can understand how that is seeing, how I in a somewhat similar situation you were in. I’ll look past that little blunder of yours seeing how you remind me of a friend of mine and I like you more then that Cadence horse thing.” Hanako cracked her neck as she extended a hand towards Chrysalis. “Okay Chrysalis, you and your changelings can stay in my empire under four conditions.”

“And those conditions are?”

“Condition one, you and the changelings are not allowed to give information to outsiders. That means anything you learn here, you take it to your grave or when their is a war breaking loose in the across equestria. Condition two, you are to drop you title as queen and join in the construction project of the crystal empire. Condition three, you’re going to be part of the Ninja pony squad. Mostly because I get the feeling you can change your appearance and you can attack somepony without them knowing you’re a friend or foe. My last condition is that when I die from either old age or something else, you’ll be in charge of Crystal Empire. Mostly because you have experience and I trust you more then the ponies outside.”

“I accept your conditions.” Chrysalis said as she shook Hanako’s hand in agreement.

“Perfect! Welcome to the Crystal Empire Chrysalis. I hope you and your changelings live a long peaceful life alongside the crystal ponies.”

“As do I.” Chrysalis said as she bowed to her new ruler. “My lady.”

“Please, call me Hanako. After all, we are friends.”
