Disclaimer! I’m no writer, but I wanted to share this idea I had after seeing that leaked clip of Petter getting hurt. From the Infinity War trailer I believe? I saw it once and now it’s gone. But I created a scenario that Marvel Studios is more than welcome to use any way they want. I don’t even need to take credit, I just need a Rooker cameo okay?
Everyone’s probs OOC just a head’s up.
Sorry if this sucks. Here we go:
Thanos watched the self proclaimed “Star-Lord” struggle to breathe.
“Too easy boy!” He laughed sinisterly.
“PETER!!!” Was that Gamora? No. He had no idea where she was. He didn’t know where any of his fellow guardians were. This was a fucking mess. God he hoped they were alright. Peter Quill could feel the darkness creep into his mind - at least the pain was fading away. But it looked like he was fading too.
“Peter hang on!!” He had no idea who was holding him now but at least he wasn’t gonna die alone. “PETER!”
“Hey boy.” A familiar voice said gently. The Terran groaned. Was his mind playing tricks on him? He hadn’t heard that drawl in a long time. “C’mon Pete open yer eyes.” Wait what…? There it was again! “Yer alright son. I’m here.”
“YONDU!” Peter cried as he sat up and threw himself into the blue body before him. The old Centaurian chuckled as he hugged his boy in return. “Yondu!” Peter cried as his tears fell. If he was physically touching Yondu he really was dead but he’d worry about that in a minute. He needed this. “I wish you hadn’t of died!” He felt the touch of a forehead against his own. Yondu was smiling with tears in his ruby red eyes that Peter missed so much.
“I’m sorry Petey.” He said using the old nickname he used on Peter when he was young. The smile left him. “But even now I don’t got much time wit’chu.” He looked up at the stars with Peter following his gaze. “It ain’t yer time yet. I’m jus’ here t’ guide ya back.”
“NO!” Peter blurted out. The two just blinked at one another. He couldn’t contain a goofy grin as Yondu flashed him his old shit eatin’ grin.
“Still defying my orders, I’m proud of ya.” He barked with a laugh as he threw his arm over the man’s shoulder and ruffled his hair. “How’s Twig?” He asked, his features softening again. Peter was quiet for a moment as an overwhelming feeling came over him.
“I don’t know. This is the biggest battle yet. The team’s huge now - I wanna tell you all about it you’d never believe it! But we’re all scattered in smaller groups. I don’t…I don’t know. Oh God Yondu.” He looked up. “I can’t die now! That little doofus, well he’s a big doofus again actually but whatever he needs me. I can’t die!”
“Ya reckon that’s why yer here?” Yondu snapped slightly irritated. “Think I’m jus’ gonna let cha leave that lil’ Twig without his daddy? And yer girl? The rat? Yer family? What chu take me for Quill?”
“You saved my ass again as always.” Peter whispered as he hugged the Ravager chuckling at the grumpy huff that vibrated off of him. “Thank you.” He felt Yondu slump in his arms. “Hey, what’s wrong?”
“Wish we had more time.” Came the captain’s reply. “There’s so much I wanna say t’ ya but…”
“I know.” Peter whispered.
“Remember what I told ya.”
“You told me a TON of things old timer.”
“BOY!” Yondu growled. He chuckled as his big bear of a Terran hugged him tight. He put his hand on that strong chest and pat his heart. “Every thang ya do, do it with yer heart.”
“That’s cheesy.” Peter said with a grin. He looked down as a white light suddenly began to radiate from within him. “Wait…Yondu what’s happening?!”
“Time t’ git on back.” Yondu whispered as he held Peter one last time.
“NO!” Peter cried as the light had just about consumed him. “NO!!”
“Peter!” Yondu cried as he placed his hands on his face just like before and all the times before that. “It’s alright son. It’s alright. I’m still wit’chu always will be.”
“YONDU!!” Peter screamed as he faded away. “NO! NO! Yondu!! Dad! I love you!!” The old space pirate just stood there staring at his hands as small little stars seemed to twinkle and dance - the last of Peter’s light - before drifting away. He closed his eyes as his own body began to glow so he could join the stars once again. A proud smile touched his lips.
“Love ya too Peter.”
And you better believe that as Peter came back to life, everyone could hear a familiar whistle. Like that of an angel. For a brief moment Thanos lost some of his composure. He had killed that boy! Everyone had seen it. This was going to be a tougher battle than he had thought. He should’ve known. That was Ravager garb the kid was wearing. There was one last whistle as Peter Quill slowly began to stand with Groot and Gamora steadying him, all of the Avengers gathered around them.
“Hey there jackass!!” The infamous Star-Lord roared with laughter as he lunged. The damn kid and that overconfident smirk, he’d seen it before! Thanos snarled as realization hit him. That punk was Udonta’s boy.
