She snickered slightly and said. "He feels we can get accepted by others peacefully.... All of us in the brotherhood want somewhere to belong and be open about ourselves... By any means necessary."
[b "You're going to have to forgive me, but I'm having trouble wrapping my brain around you being anything but a threat,"] he blurted out. [b "Charles kind of made that part of the core curriculum at the school. 'What not to do as a mutant, featuring Erik Lehnsherr'. You're exceeding my expectations, if that helps anything."]
Mystique smiled softly and said. "Erik does it better." She nudged her old friend gently and smiled up at him.
Alex focused on the science professor, trying to picture him in any other form. [b "He's been blue as long as I've known him. The 'mutant and proud' thing must have worked. All of the students love him."]
Looking back to the two former villains, his face softened. [b "Maybe she needs to hear the mutant and proud speech,"] he spoke, tightening his arms around the sleeping Ari.
Mystique smiled softly at Beast's sleeping form and said. "Erik used to tell me that and I told Hank when he and I were talking about our mutations... He wasn't originally blue when we met.... But he was so embarrassed about his feet."
[b "Mutant and proud?"] Alex murmured.
Erik's eyes turned to him, brows furrowed. [i "Where did you hear that?"]
The young man pointed across the room, where the blue form of Beast was fast asleep. [b "Hank mutters it to himself from time to time. Mostly when he's had a rough day. I don't think he knows he says it, to be honest. Why, does it sound familiar?"]
She giggled slightly and looked up at Erik. "I remember you had a similar reaction whenever he um... Had relations with other girls." She teased and squeezed his hand softly. "Charlie didn't want me to show my true form to anyone.... Not until he could get people to accept us... Erik told me that I should be proud and confident about myself and my uniqueness.... To paraphrase it..." She peeked at Erik knowing he'd correct her wording and smiled.
Alex gagged a bit. [b "No no no, don't want to hear anything about my old, tweed-suit wearing professor doing anything close to hooking up with people. Focus more on the mission story, please."]
He'd had no idea that Charles had fought with the X-Men once upon a time. The elder man never talked much about anything before he opened the school.
"he used to be as reckless and stubborn as your generation.... He also used to be a bit of a player." She said and smiled. "But.... Well... We formed the first x-force and was sent on a mission... After doing some training of course...."
[b "I'm sorry, I am finding it incredibly hard to believe that the bald headed man lecturing us about safety is the same man who ran around with two members of the Brotherhood,"] Alex couldn't quite wrap his head around the idea. [b "How did he go from what you're describing to the scholar in tweed suits?"]
"the security wasn't all that great back then...." She said and smiled. "You have to remember that this was a very different time, before you were even a thought in your parents' heads."
Alex's mouth opened and closed several times as he tried to come up with words to respond. [b "You broke into...the mansion,"] he spoke slowly. [b "The highly secured, wrought iron-locked, probably guarded by dogs and armed guards, mansion?"]
she smiled sheepishly and said. "i um... i kind of broke into his house when i was little... and he found me in the kitchen disguised as his mom but.... he knew it was actually me...."
That comment alone nearly made the Summers' man's neck break with how quickly he gave himself whiplash. [b "I'm going to need some details here. How in the hell did you and Charles even meet? He literally gives off the vibe that he was never allowed outside as a child."]
Mystique giggled slightly and said. "And he used to be my adopted brother."
