RP logs: Meta(ish) conversation with Tony
Mun reads from web site with characters listing: James Rhodes -pilot, CEO
Tony: ...what, no CFO position for you, then?
Tony: *deadpans* There's no one I trust more, honeybear.
Rhodes: Thanks, man. But you don't want to leave me managing that much money. Probably.
That'd be some spectacular retirement...
Tony: Sure I do. I trust you with it.
That can still be managed.
Rhodey: *rubs his face* Why don't we both go and think about this one a bit better. I have the bad feeling it ain't quite right.
I don't believe there's something you don't think that can be managed. Hm?
Tony: Why not?
There's a few things. But not usually, no.
Rhodey: You're gonna insist, aren't you.
Tony: Would it work?
Rhodey: It's just that - I don't think I'm qualified for a job like that.
Tony: I'm actually not going to push this on you if you don't want it. I've just been thinking on who I can
trust give the position to, and the list is too short.
Rhodey: Thank you. I... think that somebody with some, well, economic background might fit the bill better. I could help with trying to get more background on them or something.
Tony: *with a bit of an edge in his words, even if the expression doesn't change* Background checks don't tell you anything, Rhodey. It'll be fine. I just need to find...someone.
Rhodey: *nods, and claps his shoulder* Tony. Relax. They might not tell everything, but they can give some idea. You'll find somebody just fine.
... and if you don't...
Tony: I am relaxed. And yeah. Wait and see, I guess.
