Burunei de unmei no hi ni aimashō - Diplomatic Message for the Empress of the Tanakosin Empire

Recommended Posts

s-l300.jpg

"Let's meet the fate of fire in Brunei"

With the Empress gathering final control over the smaller faction, her destiny was coming into place,  and her fate to free the Asian people from oppression and dependency from nations outside of Asia is also equally clear in her mind. Her people shall always come first, but to do that, a free Asia must be achieved. 

 

With that, the Empress of Nakamura Shogunate has sent an official letter to the Tanakosin  Empire

Quote

Dear Empress Yrita Meesang,

As history as shown, you cannot run from your destiny, and the destiny of the people of Asia is something we both cannot ignore. Our mixed cultures and unique history, the people of Asia have always been strong people, however, we were always treated inferior when the European colonizers came to our door, took over for many years. Now once again, we have been colonized, but this time, the people are ready to defend their homes! As such, we are the only two major Asian powers. It's up to us to protect Asia from harm, so I request a meeting in Burunei. A neutral country that is willing to host us, for a very cheap price. Message me back as soon as you can, as fate waits for nobody. 

 

Sincerely,

Asami Nakamura 

Empress of the Nakamura Shogunate 

The letter was sealed, and will be hand delivered by a trusted soldier. Typically, messages are sent electronically, but the Empress wanted to keep this request quiet, and computers can be hacked...

Upon receiving the letter, the Empress smiled, lighting up brightly. Japan had restored itself, and it was being lead by an Empress! All she could think of was that the traditions of Asia had not died out just yet, and perhaps she had influenced Japan into finding a Monarch. She wasn't gleaming over the fact two individuals had absolute power in all of Asia, but at the fact the culture and heritage of Asia had not died, even woth the rampant assimilation and colonization of their part of the world. 

She agreed, sending a letter back as she prepared herself for the trip. This would be the first time, and only time, she may ever leave her Grand Palace. The prepared trip had one of her most powerful naval ships and the only submarine they had to escort in silence. Mog[Corp], unfortunately, owned the oceans where she wanted to go, so she did register with Mog[Corp] that her ships would be traveling to Indonesia with special cargo, but that was all that was said to Mog[Corp]. 

Greetings Empress Asami Nakamura,

I have received your message, and I am delighted of both your accomplishments with Japan, and that you would like to join forces for a better Asia! I look forward to meeting with you, as we are both the most powerful leaders of Asia, to protect our people for the future, and root out the foreign colonizers! I have ordered the preparation immediately, and will leave as soon as I can. Contained within this missive will be the date and time I will arrive. Thank you for reaching out to me!

Her Majesty, 

Empress Yrita Meesang

Tanakosin Empire

After receiving the date the Empress Yrita Meesang would arrive, she arranged a small elite team of soldiers to guard her and fly in a disguised private jet. To try to avoid conflict of the air, The Empress's advisor sent a message to Mog[Corp] that a group of Japanese citizens were flying through to Brunei for a vacation. 

 

Once she arrived, she takes her first steps on soil that wasnt Japanese and takes a deep breath, hoping for a welcoming outcome. The only way to attempt to achieve her vision is to gain the trust of the Empress. 

 

Once she arrived to the building housing the meeting, she got dressed in a blue and white colored traditional dress with flower designs imprinted on it near the bottom to the hip, hair pulled back and makeup done in a traditional sense. She wasnt used to this style but she wanted to make a good impression. 

 

...

 

She enters the room, and takes a seat, with two soldiers standing behind her directly with the other 3 stood at the wall and one at the door, ready to open the door for the Empress of Tanakosin Empire

Upon docking, the Empress was hidden, and seemed nothing more than a VIP among the locals of Brunei. She was escorted by about four Royal Tanakosin Guards and her brother, dressed formally, Nattakan Bunyasarn. She was dressed in Geisha-like clothing, but she also wore a Chinese Lion Mask. She would wear this mask all the way to the meeting place where she would find the Japanese Empress. She was most calm, waiting for the moment where they would be both introduced. It seemed the Japanese Empress would be waiting for her, so she entered, escorted at her side by her brother, the leader of the military, high commander of the Tanakosin Empire.

Upon entering, Yrita did not bow, but her brother did, and began to speak. "Greetings Empress Asami Nakamura, of Japan. I am Nattakan Bunyasarn, the non-biological brother of my sister. I am the High Commander, Commander of the Tanakosin Military. May I introduce, our beloved Empress and my sister, Empress Yrita Meesang." He gave one final bow to the Japanese Empress before turning to kneel to his sister.

Yrita slowly raised her hand to remove her mask, and at this time, her brother stood and graciously took the mask so she didn't have to bare it. She clasped her hands and laced her fingers as she smiled, "it is great to finally meet you, Empress Asami, I am so happy that Japan has been strong enough to reform and find its way." Yrita's face was covered in Geisha-like white makeup.

She slightly nods her head, mostly to show she acknowledged Nattakan, and as a sign of respect and then looked at Empress Yrita. "Thank you,  it is nice to meet you as well. I have heard good things about you and your Empire. Of course, news have been spotty, so we dont have much information to go by. My poor advisor tried to learn your cultures and customs to come back empty," she said, laughing at the end. "Anyways I wanted to meet with you because Asia is in a pivoting situation. We have the chance to unite Asia and remove outside threats. The Asian people deserve to self governance. To choose their own destiny. Is it safe you feel the same," she asked, biting her lip fearing she may went into the conversation too fast. Then she waits for the Empress to reply

Nattakan took a position behind his sister and off to the side, holding his head down out of respect. "Yes," Yrita responded, "I do feel the same. We are not trying to be Chinese, Siamese, Cambodian, or otherwise. We are trying to mix our cultures back together as we all have our roots together, and we want to live in harmony. I do not take offense, in fact, I respect you more by representing your own, just as I do. I was very much hoping that Japan would reform, but I am both surprised and overjoyed that traditions have taken place, it even makes me a little hapoy that perhaps I had an influence for traditional restoration. I would love to stand by the Nakamura Shogunate to protect Asia and route the colonials!"

"Yes, traditions that been around for centuries, trying to be smushed out by outsiders wanting to expand their influence and push their customs onto us. We find this disrespectful and dishonorable, they want to contain us, because we can be a force to be reckon with, so it's not a surprise they want to divide us, brainwash us from the true path.." she says while pulling out her family heirloom. "This is the last item preserved from my family tree. The rest were burned and destroyed once the British moved in. My family comes from the northern part of our main island, and after the chaos of Rokkenjima falling, the rioting and then the harsh occupation afterwards you wouldnt see on the news. Our culture was under threat from the outside world. Once I had gained support, Chinese and koreans approached me, promising their allegiance to me if I led them to glory. I led glorious battles against a rebelling Chinese force in the coast near Korea that wanted to break off from the Chinese local government and make allegiance to Britain. I ended that rebellion swiftly, and no mercy was shown to the leaders, however the soldiers of the rebellion were given a chance to integrate back into society if they pledged their loyalty to me. The Philippines saw this triumph and requested we protected them, so I offered them the same deals pledge their allegiance to Japan, my shogunate, and become part of the empire I am building. They accepted with no hesitation. They were even surprised when I gave them autonomy. The ability to self govern internally and were thankful for the aid I provided. Now that I got Tokyo back, my eyes are now focused on the Northern part of my island. We will negotiate with the British before we decide on any actions, but by honor, I will do what is best for my people." She stood and walked to the window to gaze the view. "Sorry for my rant, but it's why I fight, and I am happy you agree that the foreigners have no place in Asia."

Nattakan silently cleared his throat at the specific mention of the Internationale, and which Empress Yrita stretched her hand out as if to calm her brother. "Yes... I have had a personal event occur with the British... I implore you to never speak to them. Just recently they arrived unannounced to the Tanakosin Empire, bringing many of their 'comrades' and not even sending a message beforehand, as you did. They came to me with no respect at all. The Premier did not do much, but he also did not say much. But he put his general in front and made demands of me and my people. Not negotiations; orders. Due to the recent Rokkenjima incident, the British internationale moved in to support to the local Chinese, and because of that, they came to my palace - my throne - to say to my face that I am not allowed to 'trespass' any further into Asia - my home. Because they own China. Please, I would never come to Japan, and tell you that Kyoto is no longer yours. We must work together, and free Asia from the pollution of the Europeans. Please, side with me and do not open diplomacy with the villains. We must go to action, show them we can not be pushed around. We are not Japan and Siam, we are Asians fighting for our people."

While she stood at the window, she holds her hands, behind her back and stands straight, and replies "We understand your position, but by honor, we must give the British a chance to peacefully leave Asia. If they do not, they'll leave us with no choice, and we will of course stand with you. Either way, they'll know we will be willing to fight for our people. I fully plan to inform the British of my demands and will not make any agreements that will allow them to stay in Asia, or dishonor my family name. Through strength we stand United, through honor we'll prevail. No European nation shall own China or they'll have to face the consequences. I can promise you, we wont sign a deal that isnt honorable, and one that doesnt include the complete removal of the British from Asia." She states, then turns around and walks back to her seat before taking a seat. "Will you give us time for the Shogunate to give the British a chance to leave Asia peacefully before we resort to total war?"

The Empress nodded, agreeing to what the Japanese Empress proposed. "I had only asked that you do not speak to them, as I don't eant them to insult you, your people, or your heritage. But I do not control you or your people, certainly not your family." She bowed her head with closed eyes for a moment, taking in a breath, "I moreso wanted to warn you, than demand of you, I apologize. My forces will stand down, and give you the time you need. When you are ready, let us know. In the meantime, you could request my brother to support your military staff. Other than being my brother and my highest military leader, he is arguably as decorated as the best Warlords that China has ever had." Nattakan took a step forward, still not directly looking at the Jaoanese Empress, "as my sister, my Empress, commands it, I am at your leisure, Empress Asami Nakamura," he said with strength and loyalty.

"I did not see you making demands, I saw you voicing your valid opinions, and I appreciate you wanting to warn me, i already know the Brits can be dishonest, dishonorable. I dont have much faith in the talks, but by honor I must give it a chance. And that would be welcoming. He could witness the rebirth of the Samurai. They may not use the sharpness of the Katanas anymore, but they are being trained to be my most elite men. They are being trained for Special Operations and ensuring the protection of me. The men you see with me are the first group to pass extensive training and graduated. They are the best in my military." She said with a warm smile while taking a sip of tea

Yrita agreed, "the Samurai were always very formidable, but not much in operating as an entire army. Special Forces is better suited as a similar term to them, for you." After having standing in the same place for so long, she began to slowly approach the Empress and then extend her hand out once she was only a few feet from the woman, but if they were to shake hands, it would force Asami to stand and approach her. "Empress Asami, I offer to you, a formal proposition for both of us to form what I believe the future of Asia; the Greater Asian Union. At least for now, our goal would be to free Asia from colonial powers, strengthen our core beliefs, and protect one another so no longer can foreigners invade our lands." While they were both Empresses, this faction would lead to a semi-unification, for goals to better the Asian continent. They would not be seen as separate countries, even though they would still have their borders, but they would be seen as Asia.

Asami was shocked by the proposal, but didnt show signs of it. She lifts her left eyebrow and shakes her hand and says "let this bring our two great nations together to fight for a common goal, as the Heavens open up to allow Asia to become free once more, we shall open our arms to our allies in Southeast Asia in a pursuit to remove colonialism from our great continent. As a gift and sign of our friendship, take this." Asami calls her one of her men over, he hands her a katana forged during Ancient times. "It is a Katana sword, created in history, preserved for a moment like this. This katana shall represent the close bonds we are making today. Be honored, as receiving a Katana is a great honor. Hold it with pride." Asami said before extending the sheathed Katana to Yrita

Her hand shake was an odd one, as she was trying to do something from western nations, but she wasn't really accustomed to it, nor was she much accustomed to any kind of interaction similar to this. Her grasp was gentle and there wasn't much shaking, butt she held the other Empresses hand with determination and nodded, before releasing it. "For the first time, all of Asia stands united against foreign invaders," she said, as she slowly took the katana. She was afraid of damaging it, so she called to her brother to take it, but not before she examined it and smiled. "Thank you, Empress Asami. I hope our friendship grows, and with it, Asia becomes whole. Asias most prominent leaders, sisters of each major Asian nations," she gave a slight giggle, "I am very honored to meet you." She gave a small, respectful bow and tilt  of her head, "was there more to discuss?"

"Not that I am aware of, unless you have anything you wanted to add." She said with a smile and her eyes closed and her head tilted. Afterwards she gave a slight bow while her hands were clapped together.

Yrita clasped her hands together and nodded back, "then I thank you for this meeting, I hope we get to see more of each other in the future, so we don't have to feel so far as Asian Sisters." She smiled and turned around, giving her farewell and taking the Chinese Lion Mask back from her brother, preparing to leaving. Once passed her brother, Nattakan turned back to Empress Asami and bowed slightly in appreciation, turning back to her sister to leave the meeting.
