Soon after, a secure line was opened to arrange the details--when, where, etc.--of the meeting. The day of Markus' arrival, the sky was overcast, threatening to unleash one of the storms common for this time of year, but for the moment, it was holding off.

Markus, and whomever else he brought, would be personally greeted by the elderly Duke of Darwin, Benjamin R. Wallace. A curious thing about the man, they would note, was that despite the darkness of the day, he did not remove his sunglasses.

"Welcome, Excellencies, to Darwin. If you'll follow me," he indicated a limosine behind him, "We can head straight for Lillia Palace." he gave a glance at the sky that might have been worried. "Before it starts to rain."

Even now, the first drops were beginning to sprinkle over the gathered group.

Markus too had sunglasses, but unlike the Duke he took them off as he arrived. He popped open a water bottle and drank a bit before opening his mouth. "It's good to meet you, Duke. Even if the day's overcast, there's still much to do."

Erik Kunze simply sighed and began walking towards the limo. He said in a low tone as they got into the limo, "How can you be so calm when there's chance the NR is going to invade us?" Markus took his seat and said "Because they know we're not morons."

"So I'm told. But I'm not the one you'll be talking with. That would be Her Majesty the Queen."

He waited until his guests had entered the vehicle before getting in himself, and so didn't hear the whispered question and answer.

But Minister Jóhannson, listening in from a non-descrip grey van nearby, did. It had been said he was going to take care of their security, and he was going to do as promised. He had several agents out and about along the planned route, ensuring no crazies attempted anything.

And they did their job. Nothing happened on the way to the palace, but there, the guards stoped everyone. "Have to check for weapons," the on-duty Lillian explained. "Sorry, standard procedure. Please hand over any weapons you may have on, and they will be returned to you upon your departure."

"Thank you sir. I do Apologize, but this is the Queen's home."

"And they take the security of the palace and its inhabitants very seriously," Wallace added as they filed inside. The guards remained outside, and Wallace beckoned to a waiting aide. "Young Mr. Roland here will escort you to the throne room. I apologize, but I have urgent business to attend to."

He hurried off, and the man indicated stepped forward, bowing from the waist, and then spoke clearly. "If you'll follow me, Excellencies? The Queen is expecting you." He turned to lead them once he was sure they would follow...

The Alvonian Representatives were taken into the Grand Hall outside of the Throne Room as the large wooden doors were opened and Lillian Guards on either side stood straight as the representatives were brought forward. Light shown brightly down from the chandeliers above them, in stark contrast to the black clouds drifting through the sky outside. Down the hall, along with many members of the Australian Court, sat the Queen on the great throne. She stood up, her white hair falling long and gracefully down her back,the tiara of the Royal Family planted softly on her head, and her piercing green eyes looking down sharply at the two men approaching her.

"Majesty, the Alvonian Government is here for their audience with you." Said the chamberlain walking up to her.

Hannah nodded her head. "Well then gentlemen, what have have you come to ask me about?"

Markus and Erik bow a little, before Erik begins. "Your Highness, with the current situation as it is, our homeland is in grave danger. Our entire government," He motions to Markus, "except for Markus here, fully believes the Northern Republic is hellbent on invading us." After he is done, Markus begins spaking. "Simply put, Your Highness, we request that we be allowed some land - anywhere, really - to resettle our population."

Anthony Harlem, who was present to deliver a progress report he'd received from Hammond, along with a few others (there was some disturbing activity going on both in Alice Springs and the capital here), after which he'd be returning to his office, raised an eyebrow.

And he thought those of his own first profession were paranoid. What gave them the idea that the Northern Republic wanted to attack them, anyway? He'd received no reports of preparations to the contraty. But it wasn;t his problem...it was the Queen's.

"I find it humorous to just give you land without any real reason besides government paranoia. Resettling an entire population is quite hard for both native Australians and the Alvonians you are bringing over. What land are you talking about and what are you polices going to be if in fact I would think of parting with my land."

"We realize how ridiculous this sounds. At the current moment, an invasion from the Northern Republic is a very real threat and my colleagues at home are treating it as such. Since I only handle our international image, I'll have to let Markus take the rest of your question."

"To put it bluntly, we don't know what land we need, we know we need enough to house our current population and military...apartment buildings are an option, yes. Our policies would be the exact same as in Greenland; anyone who is a registered citizen enjoys freedom of speech, health care and so on."

OOC: You wouldn't. Would you? Where in the Bob is Alvonia?

OOC: Please, leave OOC out of this thread unless it is relevent to the topic, OK? If you have a query, PM the party/parties in question.

"Well I have to say that I'm not particularly impressed with your proposal. However, as I have been trying to out reach the world a bit more than usual, the islands of Kiribati and the Marshalls have very little strategic importance now that I have been focusing on an Australia first attitude. If acceptable, I can cede you those islands, provided that the population that refuses to leave are treated with the utmost respect and such. In addition to that, that you permit Australian observers on the island and a representative to act within your government. You Mister Wilding have been a bit of a rebel in the past and I will not allow that to occur here. Other than that, you will enjoy the full security of the Australian people and your people may prosper in peace. If that can be reached, you have a deal. In addition, if you fall or cease to act upon my wishes, Australia will once again inherit the land, understood?" She extended her hand to be kissed, as a finalization of the pact.

"Of course, Your Highness. We'll agree to all of the terms, and of curse, the utmost care will be taken to anyone who wishes to stay and become a part of Alvonia." Markus kisses the Quenns hand, and the dealis set. As they are escorted and Markus's weapons are handed back to him, he is already on the phone speaking in German to the ministers in Greenland, setting in motion the mass migration of Alvonians.
