The Chancellor’s Residence. Gallagher, Mainland Province, Cartoonia. June 20, 2020.

On this day, a new decade falls upon Cartoonia. Beloved Chancellor Erza Scarlet must now hand over the power of government to the newly elected Nigel Uno. Once the Secretary of Child Safety in Cartoonia is now the second most powerful political figure in all of Cartoonia. Under the political banner of the Cartoon National-Kid Party, he is one of the youngest chancellors to be named at ten years of age, as previous chancellors Ash Ketchum (2000-2010) and Gumball Watterson (1960-1970) were aged when they were sworn into office. Now most people might raise issues with kids running a government, but it is known that representation here in Cartoonia is extended to children aged ten and older, and kids aged ten and older can hold down government positions (and that goes for retail and business too). But enough about that. For right now, Nigel Uno prepares for his inauguration ball. A chance to meet the leaders for the rest of the world and get to know them. As leader of the Cartoon nation, he has a duty to know his people, his international peers, and his cabinet. He is the head of one of the largest and democratic governments in the world.

It was a long day today too. Having been inaugurated in front of his people. Winding speeches by many of the officials, military band music throughout the day, and of course the crowning moment. Chief-Superior Justice Levy McGarden swears him in as the new Chancellor under the English Bible and the Book of KND, and old manual and history book that was personal of Nigel’s having been a KND Corps member (kind of like boy scouts but more linked to the military, and is often deployed as home defense in civil outbreak). The Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo then proclaimed to the citizens that he was competent enough to be the Chancellor considering his excellent military and political record. After the inauguration ceremony, the motorcade brings the new chancellor to his new place of residence and later that day attended a military review of the troops as tradition for the second in command of the military (of which he is). Now the final ceremony begins, with the Chancellor attending the inauguration ball in his honor.

Nigel, with his bald football shaped head and regular glasses puts on his best black-tie suit for the evening. Being a member of the KND Corps, he adorns himself with his medals on the left side of his suit. These medals come from his military record of disaster response and marksmanship. His fiance with black hair of African American descent, Abigail Lincoln, enters his room to fix him up before the ball, wearing a yellow glitter ball gown.

“Hey Nigel, come here” she says bringing Nigel closer to her, trying to fix his suit up. “There, nice and perfect for tonight. You sure you got everything you need”.

“Don’t worry Abigail. As the new chancellor, it is my duty to be prompt and ready to take on the new task ahead of me”.

“Oh, don’t worry yourself about that, Abigail knows that you will be fine no matter what Nigel”.

“I know that Abby. If I got the office of the highest government office, I can certainly do anything. I am a KND Corps officer after all”.

“That’s what Abigail like about you, always so confident with that go getting attitude. I’m sure you will own this decade under your administration”.

“That is if the decade doesn’t own me first”. The two share a laugh and kiss each other. “Now come, let’s get going”. And they do so, they get in the car and travel downtown to the Chad Dickson National Theatre of The Arts.



East Wing Ballroom, The Chad Dickson National Theatre of The Arts, Gallagher, Mainland Province, Cartoonia. June 20, 2020.

A grand European-styled concert hall fit for any occasion, and located to its right is the East Wing Ballroom, an elegant ballroom in the style of most of the European ballrooms of the 19th century, sometimes used by ballet companies for rehearsals. Inside, the Cartoon Marine Orchestra was preparing to play festive music for the event while the caterers, serving staff, and sound staff were getting things ready. Meanwhile, The Supreme Leader Jimmy Kudo and his family were there to greet guests and fill the role of the master of ceremonies. The Supreme Leader shares power with the Chancellor on a few key things, but he is more of the head of state than government. The Supreme Leader was suited up in his dress mess uniform adorned with various medals and his wife Rachel Moore was dressed in a light blue ball gown. His adopted brother Shou wears a regular black tie suit, decorated with civilian medals as with his status of being next in line to inherit the Supreme Leadership.

“Okay, I think we are all ready” Jimmy says, taking the backseat of public affairs this time, “I say this will be a wonderful event won’t it Rachel?”.

“Yes Jimmy, I surely hope that it will take people’s minds off of everything that is happening right now. Especially in the United States”.

“I’m sure they will get their act together, but for tonight is Chancellor Nigel’s time to shine in the political and international spotlight”.

“And I’m sure he will bring upon a new political age for Cartoonia”. Jimmy and Rachel stand at the door of the ballroom as the orchestra began to play the first piece of tonight’s processional, Franz von Suppe’s “Light Cavalry Overture” as the guests entered the ballroom. And handed out is the processional music program.

Millhiore Firianno Biscotti, the Premier of Animalpolis Island. Technically that made her little more than a lowly state Governor. AHSCA's code was pretty strict, only the Duchess and her direct appointees could represent the UIS. Though it didn't prohibit any leader from attending foreign balls and galas like this, it usually meant they had to tread very lightly. EXCEPT for her, because Millihi was granted Her Majesty's blessing to not only go to this party but also be a liaison for the UIS, if the need arose. It was helpful that Millihi was pretty good friends with the Foreign Officer and the two had such a report with The Duchess. Given Duchess Villa was ready to go Astares Amauricanum she did not have the time to attend a gala in Cartoonia herself and Noir had an overseas appointment of her own to meet up with AHSCA's close friend, Mokastana so that meant someone would have to go in their wake. That often fell to Deputy Roshin Tendo but Miss Tendo was enjoying some time off for herself on Animalpolis so who did that leave? Pacifica or Miela (maybe both considering they were dating) but if the Duchess, Princess and Foreign Officer were out of the country, that meant they would have to keep close to home just should the unexpected happen, if not them then any one of AHSCA's governors or other lower officers would be considered but in this case who better than Premier Biscotti! (Oh about that name, she picked it herself as a child, if you're wondering.)

She was thrilled to be here, thrilled to given not only a blessing to go but also be allowed to represent her home country officially. Pretty unusual even for parties but well she wasn't going to complain. Any overseas trip brought some concern, how would people react to her ears, her tail her human frame, her marriage to an ordinary human? Well guess that's why she was head of her island not the country. But faith was instilled in her, she would do her best. Wearing a lovely dress she was all set.

On her arm, her adorning husband of the last few years, Captain Cinque Izumi, recently promoted from Corporal, under his own merits of course. Loyally serving his platoon, marrying the cute doggy premier of Animalpolis, he was a blessed man. Usually more the silent partner to his wife, he didn't get much say with state matters but that's fine, his home was his home he'd do anything to protect it and defend it.

"Oooh this is so beautiful." Milli praised the design of this ballroom. And by the looks of it, they were the first ones here! Well first as far as foreign guests go, seemed some of the Cartoonia elite were already present and accounted for.

"Perfect for a dance later."

"For sure!"

After the two walked into the ballroom lobby, a man in charge of finding those who have RSVPed to announce their arrival. The man finds their pictures submitted for Cartoon visa purposes and quickly annouces, "The AHSCAian delegation. The Honorable Millhiore Firianno Biscotti, Premier of Animalpolis Island and her husband, UISSDF Captain Cinque Izumi!". Attention is turned over to the ballroom entrance. The two are greeted by the Supreme Leader and his wife, thrilled to meet the first foreign delegation here.

"Greetings and salutations, Premier Biscotti and Captain Izumi" Jimmy says. "It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance. We welcome you to Cartoonia and the Chancellor Inaugural Ball. The incoming chancellor will be arriving in a few minutes, we hope that you are doing well".

Colonel Muhammad Khalid Suleiman Ibrahim Khan walked in his medal adorned military uniform, complete with a ceremonial scimitar.
He looked around, greeting everyone.
He waited patiently for the Chancellor.

"A great pleasure." Milli responded. "Thank you for asking, we're all doing very well tonight. Seems like Cartoonia is on the mend too, I heard you had trouble with a recent pandemic?"

"Some economic downturn with trade being halted, but with nations reopening trade, we're doing better. We've been recently putting in billions of dollars in research and development for a vaccine, and millions in aid and relief".

"And even though Cartoonia has no cases of the virus" Rachel adds, "We shut down our borders for a good while to prevent the spread within our populus".

"But we've been recently getting our borders to reopen slowly with extra health precautions. So we've been hanging on. I hope the pandemic didn't affect AHSCA".

And feel free to mingle with some of the guests". He hands them the music program for the processional.

He was growing restless due to the small-talk, however,

Ballroom
"Ah! So, so, so, so," came a young man's voice as he spun into the room, his lithe, dancing steps like a playful jester's, "so, so, is this Mac's former home? It sure looks like it, don't it, Sekka? A dozen or so — how you say? — cartoons all coming together in a medley of sorts, yes?" He paused in his movements, turning back with his hands in front of a smile, as though simulating mandibles. That was indication enough that he was Prince-Jester Sebastian Cano, the devilish harlequin of the Inquisition. He was by no means a major leader, like the rest of his entourage, but he was still significant enough to attend.
The next voice was slightly robotic and muffled. "Unfortunately, no." It was Sekka Verndara, and of course, he was coming in his usual suit, as he called it, with a tuxedo overlaid. It was best not to question it; as far as anyone knew, there wasn't anything worth seeing underneath. His power rested in his eloquence, his diplomacy more than anything related to his looks. He was a man who knew everyone that mattered, what with his far-reaching corporation. At least he was benevolent in his reign of wealth, for he was devoted to philanthropy. Even his city of chaos, Parfuhmerie, had been tamed under his idea that they would forever be known and hated as "Demons" if they were not devoted to the service of others.

"Hmph, pleasant to see that he hasn't changed one bit." A man dressed in regal green robes entered, his refined gait like watching the aroma of tea waft through. Yet, there was no such scent. Rather, it was an aromatic mosaic, like a tropical temple at dawn-break amidst a grove of fruits and gentle flowers. A subtle hint of vanilla came off of it as well, and if one's nose were sharp enough, one would see that the source of his aromas were emanating from the pale brown sticks in between his fingers. It seemed odd that something so small could create such a strong, luxuriant scent, but it was hardly the oddest part of the entourage.
"Ah, kingly King, nice to see someone with a little sense of humor," Sebastian said.

"Zere was a joke?" A small green anaconda rose from the neck of someone in the group, and bridged itself onto the Prince-Jester's shoulder. "You have a very strange sense of humor, zen." The snake retreated to the neck of its owner: a young man, perhaps in his late teenage or early adult years, dressed in a stylish white shirt and black suit, much like his peculiar, spiral eyes. He walked as though slightly unaccustomed to the weight and gait of his own body, but his devious smirk and odd, unnatural movements hinted at an even greater eccentricity; it was as though his body was just a front for... something. Even stranger, he flicked his tongue into the air in front of him, like a snake trying to smell the air. "But you know... I wonder if they might have any... persillade?" His namesake. No other Maivieux resident was as obsessed with it as him, Piedmont Persillade, Seigneur of Coratge — Château de Steudadoù.
"Best not cause an earthquake out of anger, dear Piedmont." A bellhop in green attire came in next, his hand over his breast as though eternally pledging service and his shifty eyes examining the room. "Twould be most... inhospitable." A peculiar way to put it, but it was indication enough that he was the Domeses of Hospitality, Keiunkan M. Bellhop. Where there were hosts and guests, there would likely be Keiunkan to review it.

"In this place, Keiunkan? No way." A woman pushed her blue hair back as she strode into the room behind the bellhop. She wore a simple blue dress with two columns of silvery-gray buttons, but otherwise, she had little else for self-decoration. Still, with her charming smile and confident walk, one would likely feel safe in her presence. With that in mind, she had to be the Head of Social Workers, Eglantyne Baestia, as clunky as that title of hers seemed. "This place isn't enough like home for Piedmont to do anything drastic, you know."
"Ah, but isn't he like a deity of the earth itself, dear sister?"
"Let's not think too hard about that, Keiunkan," she said. "We're not here for anything drastic, and I doubt the hosts are planning anything like that."
"Yes, let's not." Piedmont flicked his tongue out again. "Now then, where's the food?"

"Hungry, hungry, always hungry, aren't you, Piedmont?" Sebastian smiled as he pranced around the Maicois Seigneur.
"Of course," he said. "I always get so hungry so quickly wiz several mouths to feed. Here's hoping this event's chefs are sufficient."
"Well," began Keiunkan. "We are in a world of cartoons. I'd imagine that they can whip something sufficient to keep up with any demands."
Piedmont smiled. "You've yet to see me eat, have you?"
"Correct, but I am still certain otherwise."

"How do I look, Allie?", "You look absolutely gorgeous, Mary. Though I have to say, you and I handled the jet lag pretty well considering that it is around eleven hours ahead of the UK here", replied Alexandra as the two ladies, both dressed in their female variations of the Royal Marines dress code casually walked down the streets leading to the building that would host the said inaugural ball. "I have to admit, I am a bit concerned at the fact that they had no cases of the pandemic here, it is either they're just that isolationist or they just have an excellent healthcare system", raised a partly concerned Mary, whom despite her worries appeared unhinged, excitedly tagging along with her sister for the ride.

"I guess we are about to find out, aren't we?", soon enough, the pair stood in front of the building's entry. As expected, the entry process went relatively smoothly, quickly transporting them deep inside a building well made, and elegantly decorated for the very occasion. Clearly, it caught the huge awe of the Duchess of Sussex, as she made a personal remark herself. "My goodness, this is just like 2012 when we get to be guests at Obama's inauguration ball! Though I was only six and had to stick by mummy all the time", instinctively, the queen let out a small snicker at her sister's disappointment.

As they approached the ballroom's entrance, Alexandra lowered her head slightly. "Alright Mary, remember, no alcohol, and keep yourself safe alright? Oh and I probably had saw some of our friends from Sharifistan earlier. I am sure that you can handle yourself, can't you?", questioned the queen in a sense of urgency. "No worries Allie, you know I am not a softie", replied the duchess with an assuring tone as the two sisters exchanged a warm hug before bringing themselves closer into view. Soon enough, both of them are about to enjoy the grandest night of all.

Shwe Tu Colony wrote:Ballroom
"Ah! So, so, so, so," came a young man's voice as he spun into the room, his lithe, dancing steps like a playful jester's, "so, so, is this Mac's former home? It sure looks like it, don't it, Sekka? A dozen or so — how you say? — cartoons all coming together in a medley of sorts, yes?" He paused in his movements, turning back with his hands in front of a smile, as though simulating mandibles. That was indication enough that he was Prince-Jester Sebastian Cano, the devilish harlequin of the Inquisition. He was by no means a major leader, like the rest of his entourage, but he was still significant enough to attend.
The next voice was slightly robotic and muffled. "Unfortunately, no." It was Sekka Verndara, and of course, he was coming in his usual suit, as he called it, with a tuxedo overlaid. It was best not to question it; as far as anyone knew, there wasn't anything worth seeing underneath. His power rested in his eloquence, his diplomacy more than anything related to his looks. He was a man who knew everyone that mattered, what with his far-reaching corporation. At least he was benevolent in his reign of wealth, for he was devoted to philanthropy. Even his city of chaos, Parfuhmerie, had been tamed under his idea that they would forever be known and hated as "Demons" if they were not devoted to the service of others.

"Hmph, pleasant to see that he hasn't changed one bit." A man dressed in regal green robes entered, his refined gait like watching the aroma of tea waft through. Yet, there was no such scent. Rather, it was an aromatic mosaic, like a tropical temple at dawn-break amidst a grove of fruits and gentle flowers. A subtle hint of vanilla came off of it as well, and if one's nose were sharp enough, one would see that the source of his aromas were emanating from the pale brown sticks in between his fingers. It seemed odd that something so small could create such a strong, luxuriant scent, but it was hardly the oddest part of the entourage.
"Ah, kingly King, nice to see someone with a little sense of humor," Sebastian said.

"Zere was a joke?" A small green anaconda rose from the neck of someone in the group, and bridged itself onto the Prince-Jester's shoulder. "You have a very strange sense of humor, zen." The snake retreated to the neck of its owner: a young man, perhaps in his late teenage or early adult years, dressed in a stylish white shirt and black suit, much like his peculiar, spiral eyes. He walked as though slightly unaccustomed to the weight and gait of his own body, but his devious smirk and odd, unnatural movements hinted at an even greater eccentricity; it was as though his body was just a front for... something. Even stranger, he flicked his tongue into the air in front of him, like a snake trying to smell the air. "But you know... I wonder if they might have any... persillade?" His namesake. No other Maivieux resident was as obsessed with it as him, Piedmont Persillade, Seigneur of Coratge — Château de Steudadoù.
"Best not cause an earthquake out of anger, dear Piedmont." A bellhop in green attire came in next, his hand over his breast as though eternally pledging service and his shifty eyes examining the room. "Twould be most... inhospitable." A peculiar way to put it, but it was indication enough that he was the Domeses of Hospitality, Keiunkan M. Bellhop. Where there were hosts and guests, there would likely be Keiunkan to review it.

"In this place, Keiunkan? No way." A woman pushed her blue hair back as she strode into the room behind the bellhop. She wore a simple blue dress with two columns of silvery-gray buttons, but otherwise, she had little else for self-decoration. Still, with her charming smile and confident walk, one would likely feel safe in her presence. With that in mind, she had to be the Head of Social Workers, Eglantyne Baestia, as clunky as that title of hers seemed. "This place isn't enough like home for Piedmont to do anything drastic, you know."
"Ah, but isn't he like a deity of the earth itself, dear sister?"
"Let's not think too hard about that, Keiunkan," she said. "We're not here for anything drastic, and I doubt the hosts are planning anything like that."
"Yes, let's not." Piedmont flicked his tongue out again. "Now then, where's the food?"

"Hungry, hungry, always hungry, aren't you, Piedmont?" Sebastian smiled as he pranced around the Maicois Seigneur.
"Of course," he said. "I always get so hungry so quickly wiz several mouths to feed. Here's hoping this event's chefs are sufficient."
"Well," began Keiunkan. "We are in a world of cartoons. I'd imagine that they can whip something sufficient to keep up with any demands."
Piedmont smiled. "You've yet to see me eat, have you?"
"Correct, but I am still certain otherwise."


“The Delegation from Shwe Tu Colony!” Shouted the man, as his majesty, the ladies and gentlemen from the nation approached the ballroom. Jimmy and Rachel bow before them, being informed and aware that one of their guests is his majesty the king.

“Good evening and welcome” Jimmy says to them, “we welcome you to Cartoonia and the Chancellor’s Inaugural Ball. It is a pleasure and an honor to make your acquaintance with you all. The incoming chancellor will be arriving in a few minutes, I hope everyone is doing well”.

Hanoverian Great Britain wrote:"How do I look, Allie?", "You look absolutely gorgeous, Mary.

“The Hanoverian Great British Delegation! Her Majesty, Queen Alexandra and Lady Mary, Duchess of Sussex” shouted the man, as the two royals entered the ballroom. Once again, Jimmy and Rachel bow in their presence with the utmost respect as other monarchs that have passed them. This is exciting now, as many of the foreign guests have started to arrive.

“Your Majesty, Your Royal Highness” Jimmy stated, “Welcome to Cartoonia. It is an honor to make your acquaintances. Our incoming chancellor will be arriving in a few minutes, I hope everything is well with you”.

After a long flight, the Overboss of Skyhooked Shawn Bjornson had finally arrived to the place, where the Ball shall be hosted, looks like this time, this road warrior managed to land the jet right, despite being slightly drunk. From the airport, he confidently walked down the streets right to the building, where all the fun of the event is, without worrying. New people, new diplomatic ties, new kinds of booze, completely occupied his mind, on his way.

After some time, Shawn entered the ballroom and greeted everyone. He was wearing his black military mess dress with all the decorations he earned in battles, when he was just a common soldier. On his hip, he had a shining Desert Eagle. Hopefully, his long hair wasn't something inappropriate. Formal dresses don't look excellent on Shawn, but "Dura lex sed lex" - rules were crystal clear. After all, civilzied countries don't like foreign leaders dressed like post-apocalyptic raiders.

The couple turned around as someone seemed to be addressing them. "Oh uh, hello!" Milli greeted him. Darling was a bit odd but some did use that in conversation even if it wasn't meant as a real term of endearment. "Thank you, I guess?" Honestly she wasn't sure what he was complimenting her on, she and her husband just greeted their hosts.

As their announces were made known, Mary was partly taken aback when she had been incorrectly styled as "Lady" by the announcer, regardless, she was not about to make a fuss about it now. At once, the pair stood facing the imperial couple, returning their warm greetings. "Excellent, and certainly, everything is fine as it is, and I believe that we could all agree that our appearances makes the best of us", remarked Alexandra in a respectful manner.

In a somewhat witty attempt to present herself, Mary appropriately brought forth her own words. "Forgive me for asking but how long has this magnificent building been here? It looks astonishing!", questioned Mary with an eager tone.

Before she leaves the country, she has done health checkup as a precaution of a pandemic that happens all over the world. She has been informed by the organizer about the safety of all the delegation here. That gives her some confidence to come today.

She wearing a grey ball dress. She enters the car and straight goes to The Chad Dickson National Theatre of Art where the chancellor ball will be held. Queen Qiara arrives at East wing Ballroom. She can see some delegations have arrives earlier than her. She enters the hall.

"Greetings, ya' lookin' awesome today! Now, my opinion on this civil war. I could have sworn, I remember something from the dossier. Oh, right! I remember, how I put a bet on one of the factions in skirmish, but it turned out, they were not as good as I thought, and thus I lost a bet. That was lots of money. Either way, I think, that it's best to end it as fast as possible. As Sun Tzu taught us, if victory ain't near, the guns run out of bullets and men tire, and if the campaign is taking too long, the resource of the state will not be equal to the strain. So ya' better take actions to end it as fast as possible. Enemies might exploit this."

Postby Ralkovian Grand Island » Tue Jun 23, 2020 5:35 pm

Senator Okereke smiled carefully at Deputy Minister S'ra Kra'eto; she was certainly attractive, but his main concern was her youth. Just over thirty-two, her position was likely owed to nepotism or at least favoritism of some sort. She had come from a Noble Family with heavy ties to Eitoan and Lamoni, both occupying powers of the Ralkovian Federation. He knew of the Kra'eto family, they were quick to betray the Emperor when the first boats landed, but even then they had a historic legacy of producing the armaments that were used to enslave so many people. Despite that past, he had generally resolved not to hold the sins of the past Ralkovian government and people against them. After all, truth and reconciliation were the best path forward for prosperity. Yet, he could not shake the feeling that she still harbored affinity to the old way.

He felt no such ill-feelings against Kartografst. He was an experienced statesman and was a prominent abolitionist long before the war. Replacing the previous foreign minister, Oskar Skara, an extremely close confidant of the Emperor. He did have genuine respect for the man, whom the allies had chosen to represent this new Ralkovia abroad. Kartografst had the unenviable job of trying to change the wider world's opinion of the Empire that had terrorized it for so long. Perhaps Kartografst was the best man for the job, he carried himself gently but had a voice that was equal parts soft, but strong. Kartografst was like a cello, deep and elegant, compared to Skara's Tuba, abrasive, authoritarian, and loud.

Senator Okereke again smiled, catching himself again in that bad habit of comparing people to musical instruments. It was a difficult transition. As a former slave, he had spent his life as a musician and minstrel for the Krazava Clan, one of the cadet clans that had lineage with the Traskov Clan. The Krazava Clan, pre-war, was powerful in the slave industry. Now the family was from his knowledge likely extinct, meeting their end at the hands of Marshite execution squads. He had felt a little sad about their fate, after all, they had rarely mistreated him, but the unremovable slave collar on his neck stood as a solemn reminder that they had only ever considered him property. He had relied on his connections to the family to help free slaves during the war, which had earned him significant influence with the allies in the post-war Ralkovia.

Now, just a few years after the Great War, he was being sent to represent a new, dynamic, and transitioning Ralkovia. So he had to put his best face forward. After all, the Federation needed more friends and wanted closer relations with its neighbors. Of course, not withstanding the fascist devil known as The Regime, breathing down its neck. Still, even with stakes as high as they were, Okereke could not help but think about how unusual this scenario was. A former slave representing millions of his past captors and working towards their benefit.

What an unsual world, he marveled as he entered into the Inaugral Ball with his two colleagues.
Lyras:You know, you're a sick fuck, yes?
Ralk: I have stacks on stacks and racks on racks of slaves.
BlueHorizons: It sounds like you're doing a commercial for the most morbid children's board game ever, Ralk.

Estainia: The countless genocides...So many countless genocides.


Old Tyrannia wrote:You've never met Ralk before, have you? Ralk doesn't have friends.
He only respects the strong, and preys on the weak.
He might act polite and smile all the time, but always remember...
The day will come when you'll wake up to find him looming over your bed,
knife in hand, and he'll still be smiling.

Cartoonia wrote:“The Delegation from Shwe Tu Colony!” Shouted the man...


The King raised an eyebrow at the bowing, then gave a gentle chuckle, one steeped in a firm regality, and he spoke cautiously, as though reciting a poem. "Thank you, thank you. Awfully sweet of you to." He nodded. "Now then, is there anywhere for me to leave gifts? I've a bounty of aromatic agarwood incense for the new chancellor. A vivid scent, for a reign that I hope shall be equally as wondrous."
Shwe Tu Colony? That don't sound right, Sebastian thought. As his group went forward after their introductions, he bounded in front of them, hands in front of his mouth as per usual. "Well, well, Sekka," he said. "Well, well, well. Did you, ah, put us all under one civilization, you silly Demon? I know you think that Parfuhmerie may be the only lot who matters, but this?"
"What ze heck, it's not even ze right one, Sekka." Despite his audible displeasure, Piedmont's wide smile remained, and his snake jabbed at the suited figure's mask and retreated with a smile. "Very strange for you — and, akh! It is anyone's first impression of me. Zey must all zink I'm a colonist of yours, now."
"Oh, come on, it's just... just the way that we're listed in the multiverse."

"So Shwe came first? You're putting your chicken before the egg, silly Demon."
Keiunkan tilted his head. "Isn't it cart before the horse?"
"Quel malheur!" Piedmont brushed his forehead with the back of his hand as his snake slipped out from its master's neck and bridged to Keiunkan and Sebastian, stretching over several feet with little indication that it was at its farthest length — it seemed to stretch well into his shirt. "Zis is a party, not a debate hall. Let's not bore our new friends with talk of pragmatics or idioms." His snake fell off of its targets and slithered back onto its master's neck, and then it turned to face Jimmy while Piedmont spoke at the air in front of him. "Now then, is there any—." Keiunkan poked the Seigneur's thigh, causing him to turn towards who he was speaking. "Ah, sorry. As I was saying, do you guys have any persillade? It's ou— my, it's my favorite sauce. Yes. My. I'm one person." His snake curled off of him, glaring, and he shushed it with a finger over his mouth.

"I think your nation has met someone here at least once before, right?" Eglantyne said. "In that case, don't be surprised by our... eccentricities."
"You'll all get your sauce and meat later." Piedmont's swirling eyes darted back to Jimmy, and his snake slithered back towards his master's neck. "Ah, don't mind me, it's just a little... I like to talk to my owners— snake! Yes. Snake. Singular snake." A beat. "Only one snake in me, yes. One, singular, snake, and— ah, it's not in me, it's just... on me. Yes. On. I don't know why someone would think I'm—"
"Ah come on, Piedmont." Sebastian skipped in front of him. "We all know you're just a bag of snakes puppeting a person."
"Let's not joke about that here, please," Sekka said. "But yes, it is my honor as well to make your acquaintance. I am Sekka Verndara, Head of Economics of Parfuhmerie."
"Ah," Sebastian muttered. "Skip the triteness."
"Twould be inhospitable, dear Sebastian," Keiunkan said. "It is necessary for host and guest to interact in proper procedures with proper etiquette."

"And this young man—" Sekka gave a subtle kick towards Sebastian's shin.
"Prince-Jester Sebastian Cano of the Ensian Inquisition," he said, giving a flippant smirk. "Always looking for another bit of amusement. Now then, it's nice to see that you've gotten unshrunk, dete—"
Piedmont stepped in front of him, fingers playing with his snake. "Piedmont Persillade, Seigneur de Coratge — Château de Steudadoù."
"Head of Hospitality, Keiunkan M. Bellhop." He bowed down to his waist, hand still across his heart and his Cheshire grin present as ever. My sister here..."
"Eglanytyne Baestia." She gave a curtsy, then flipped her hair with her hand. "Head of... Social Workers."
The King nodded; he was standing, yes, but there was something about his pose, his gestures, his grace that seemed he was already serving tea at a waist-high table. "The King of Huang-Penglai. Name and title."

"1902, during great-great-great grandfather William's", remarked Mary in a low tone as she turned to her sister, confirming her statement. "Surely, the European-American combination in this building's architecture has worked well, it is just stunning!", added the queen by her own initiative.

Following this, Mary quickly threw a whisper into her sister's left ear, something in which the queen quickly agreed on. Soon enough, she returned her attention to the imperial couple. "If Your Majesties aren't neccessarily occupied at the moment, would it be permissible for a drink between us all? The Duchess of Sussex is looking forward to one, though at a tender age of seventeen, she is aware of her limits", elaborated Alexandra in a much inviting tone. Regardless, Alexandra herself is to adhere to her own words about her sister's "no alcohol" limits, for she herself had an unbroken spree of "no alcohol" since reaching the legal age to even drink such substance.

Marie BonAztire walks in with her husband, President Bottio, and Vice President Kelliey. Marie is amazed; the ballroom was astonishing and pure beautiful. She immediately wanted to dance, but her husband wanted to have some fruit punch with Vice President Kelliey.

Meanwhile, after enjoying some local alcohol, Shawn got a little bit bored and decided to find someone else to talk to. Perhaps Jimmy was the best person for some talk.

-"Greetings. Perhaps we didn't meet yet, I am Shawn Bjornson - Overboss of Skyhooked. I gotta say, I am impressed with the setting! And I feel overwhelmed with memores, as my story is rather similar to Nigel's. I was a warrior too and fought in many battles, before I gained a position of great power and resposibility. I have to admit, it still feels, like I was inaugurated only yesterday... Before that, I never thought, that I would ever represent the people of Skyhooked. I wonder, what does Nigel feel about such a turn in his life?"

Skyhooked is MT/PMT with a few FT elements. Military is factbook only. NS stats are mostly non canon.

Refreshing News:
Shawn Bjornson officially proclaims, that Vicarius Dei Edgar, who oppressed our people for 25 years, was a heretic, and thus, we shall let our old grudges go and officially forgive christianity! Even before this, we let them have equal right and opportunities and freedom from all and any discrimination, because our cause demanded it! But now, it's because we truly feel that way!
