he’d heard about the new ‘Ravager Princess’ some gorgeous blade wielding beauty. and then you were in front of him, and all the stories were lies, because none of them could really describe your just how beautiful you really were. and Peter was dying inside because you were perfect.
Yondu could have just dropped Peter off instead of raising him.
was adamant to not deliver Peter to Ego, after he had figured out what had
happened to the children he had delivered before. It would take a right
cold-hearted a-hole (*cough* Ego *cough*) to deliver a child to its death just
for the money. So Yondu actually deciding not to take on that job, not to do
it, is not all that surprising,
especially if you take his life as a slave in consideration – he has seen to
many people been shipped off to who-knows-where to die.
have refused the job. Or, if he only found out about what was going on after he picked Peter up, he could have
dropped the boy off somewhere – back on Terra, on some other planet to be
picked up into their society, anything.
have walked away and said “I ain’t delivered
anymore children, got nothing to do with me, I’m out, ain’t my problem”.
But he didn’t.
He kept Peter, and raised him, and taught him all he knew.
There are a
lot of possible reasons why he kept Peter, in the end: Perhaps he knew that Ego would
just send someone else to find him, Terra or any other planet he was on. Perhaps
he thought that Peter, if left alone, would set out to find his “dad” and ran
into Ego that way. Perhaps he felt responsible for the boy because he had been
the one to rip him away from Terra. Perhaps he felt as if he had to make up for
the children he had already delivered.
says a whole lot about Yondu Udonta. Because he made Peter his job, his responsibility.
He didn’t just drop him off and walk away from him. While he did fuck up a
whole damn lot – though, how would he know how to parent, especially amidst
Ravagers of the worst kind – he made it his
responsibility to raise Peter and teach him how to protect himself and kept him
save from Ego and other guys all these years.
take the easy way out – he actually took the most difficult way, something that took him years and a lots of
money and nerves and in the end, his softness for Peter ended even up causing a
And in the
end, he still freaking smiled so proudly and full of love at Peter, because
whatever the reason why he kept him all these years, he had come to love his
boy, his son, and he never even once regretted
anything he had had to give up for Peter or the trouble it had gotten him into,
just regretted the things he had wronged Peter with.
think Yondu’s decisions regarding Peter tell us a whole lot about Yondu. He’s flawed, not a hero, and did a whole lot of things wrong, but down at the core, he’s actually a good guy who had just seen too much shit to know how to do things right.
“I’m sorry, you said what to your teacher?”you yelled a Groot, who angrily turned his back to your and pulled out his video game controlled. “Groot, don’t you dare-”
You were cut off by the sounds of the video game starting up, and you rolled your eyes and turned to look at Rocket, who was leaning against the doorway with his arms crossed. The two of you were like parents to Groot, so both of you were responsible for him. Pointing at Groot, you exclaimed, “Can you believe this? He swore at his teacher!
“He learned it from you.” Rocket said, and you gaped at him. Storming up to him, you balled your hands into fists.
“He did not learn it from me!” you yelled, and Rocket scoffed as he turned to leave. “Rocket, get back here! We need to sort this out!”
“I don’t see what the problem is here.” Rocket shrugged. “He said the teacher was being mean, so you gotta stand up for yourself!”
“I doubt the teacher was being mean.” you sniffed. “Groot’s just been so moody at everyone.”
“Another thing he learned from you.” Rocket snickered.
Glaring at him, you snapped, “Go to hell.”
“Already been but thanks for the invite.” Rocket replied casually, examining his hands. “You need to calm down, y/n, it’s not that big of a deal.”
“Don’t tell me how to calm down, you calm down!” you shouted, and Rocket rolled his eyes as he waved his hand.
“Alright, I’m just gonna walk away now.” Rocket said as he strolled off. “If you need me to make a bomb, let me know. Otherwise, don’t disturb me.”
“Screw you!” you yelled at Rocket’s back, and you heard him laugh in response.
i love this scene for so many reasons: baby groot grabbing rocket’s ears, peter casually catching him and tossing him to drax, who holds him gently, like a mother holds her child and protects him. it’s beautiful.
this scene is iconic in showing peter’s true character as it shows his deep love and respect for his mother. no matter what greatness ego tries to promise him, it all comes crumbling down when ego confesses that he killed peter’s mother.
@avoid-avoidance Oh, absolutely! Pre-teen Peter was still handled gently enough for him to feel at ease with joking around with the Ravagers like that, and cute enough that they would more laugh than be disgusted when he said something like that and Yondu would swat him over the head and roll his eyes at the laughing child.
It’s just way funnier with the Guardians, because you can bet that either Drax with his blunt way or Mantis in her confusion would ask if that means he loves everyone like he loves Gamora - which is partly sexual love - and Rocket and Kraglin make gagging noises after they hear that and Peter pretends to be offended that his “love” is rejected like that.
