[i "He knows about my new position already, doesn't he?"] Erik looked mildly annoyed that he might have been beaten to the punch with the secret.
"yeah, the professor and I were just talking." She said and smiled at him.
Both men noticed her attention shift to something not in the room with them. [b "Everything okay?"] Alex's brow furrowed with concern.
Ari snickered and paused hearing a familiar voice in her mind.
[i "I can practically see the shock on Charles' face over the news that I'm a diplomat,"] Erik almost looked excited. [i "I do love making a scene."]
[b "We couldn't tell from your years of dramatic speeches and entrances,"] Alex snarked with a grin.
"you already know Charles..." She said and smiled. She named off a few more and looked at him.
Erik waved her off. [i "There's plenty of time for that. Better to focus on getting back to health before you tackle a stressful undertaking such as that. Give me a few names of your most trusted allies, and we'll start brainstorming for you."]
"not only that it would look bad on mutants." She said and sighed. "I also need to figure out the new judicial system...."
Erik's face turned serious. [i "And if not, we invade and take over their countries."]
After a moment's pause, Alex tilted his head slightly with narrow eyes. [b "The scary part is that I can't actually tell if you're joking."]
Magneto huffed. [i "I'm offended that you think so little of me. It wouldn't be practical to invade every country, we don't have the manpower."]
she smiled slightly and said. "and hopefully i can change their minds."
[i "I'll tell you the who's who in the political world of entitled men who want to silence us,"] he smiled back.
"deal." she said and smiled. "you could be my adviser."
[i "I've never been one for sitting still, I'm afraid. But I would be willing to act as a diplomat, of sorts. Offer my insights to you based on my experiences in the world, as I move around,"] he compromised.
ari looked at erik and said. "you should come home with us, erik." she leaned forward and touched his hand gently. "or at least visit every so often?"
[i "Suffice to say that we've had surprisingly little controversy about joining the support for your crown,"] he responded. [i "I assume it has to do with the lack of Charles constantly warning everyone that I'm a hair's width away from destruction."]
[b "Would you believe me if I said he's worked defenses against you into the school curriculum?"] Alex joked.
[i "And yet it's likely not the worst things anyone has said about me,"] Erik brushed it off.
