i kind of thought you’d change
in the years since we last met
but you still take your coffee black,
swing your right fist first,
left eye shut as you pull the trigger
the ledger’s burned
and i’m sitting in the ashes
the nights are worse for me now
i’m choking on kindness and you
- you hold me like i matter
Imagine being recruited by the Guardians of the Galaxy for the Infinity Wars...
“I Am Groot!”
“Really? I had no freaking idea!” You said to Groot, pissed that you couldn’t understand him. Currently you were on the Milano with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Peter lured you on here by telling you he wanted you to listen to this new mixtape you found. He’s been wanting to recruit you for weeks but you don’t like working with others, it’s not your style. You like working in the shadows, funny enough that’s your name, Shadow. The name was given to you by the citizens of Xandar and the Nova Corp.
“Quill, can we go back to Xandar? I’ve got work to do.” Peter didn’t answer you because he was listening to music and dancing. You heard him mumbling and then all of a sudden he started screaming the chorus of The Five Stairsteps O-o-h Child.
“Some day, yeah
We’ll put it together and we’ll get it undone!!
When the world is much brighter!!”
You wanted to scream something at him but no, that wouldn’t work. So you asked Gamora if she could throw a knife a couple inches away from Peter’s head. Gamora agreed happily and threw the knife she had in her boot at Peter. Inevitably, he screamed and stopped singing.
“Who the hell threw that?!”
“I did” Gamora said proudly.
“Why Gomara? I thought we were tight, also I thought we agreed that we wouldn’t kill each other.”
“We did but your singing was terrible and Y/N asked me to.” Peter went back and forth between you and Gamora with his eyes. Then he shrugged and said “Makes sense.”
“Great so are we going back to Xandar now?” You asked desperately.
“Nope I need you to stay with us” Quill said playing with the controls on the dashboard.
“Why do you need me? What’s so important that I need to stay?”
“Thanos.” Of course it was Thanos. That SOB made you kill thousands in order to save your family but he ended up killing them anyway.
“What’s he done this time?” You asked.
“Some infinity stone, gauntlet shit” said the raccoon named Rocket who was cleaning his blaster.
“Well whatever that is, I want to kill that bastard.”
“Do you want to kill Thanos as much as I do?” Draw asked you.
“If he killed your family too then hell yeah” You responded. After a couple of minutes of silence you spoke up “You guys do know that we can’t do this by ourselves right? We will need help.”
“Well there’s this group on Terra that might do the job. It looks like they’ve got a witch, this guy named iron man, a guy who turns into a giant green rage monster - that might be helpful -, A Russian ex-spy, another ex-spy who’s excellent with a bow and arrow, some guy named falcon, a robot who’s extremely intelligent, a God, an ant-man, an ironman, and…. Captain America?” Peter said in disbelief.
“That’s quite the lineup” you said.
“There’s more. We’ve got a man named Doctor Strange, the Winter Soldier, a Spider-Man, A guy named Black Panther, some guy named Daredevil, a Jessica Jones, Luke cage, and a that calls himself Iron Fist.”
“Damn” was all you could say. There were a lot of people we need to persuade. Hopefully force won’t be needed.
“No shit Sherlock” Rocket said.
“I thought her name was Y/N not Sherlock” Drax said in confusion. Everyone sighed and Peter said “It’s a metaphor Drax. Anyway, our next stop is Terra!” Peter yelled in excitement.
I started last year with this widow sketch that still pops up in my feedback section from time to time. So I took a break from my current work to make a new
(and I think hope a bit imroved [or different anyway]) version of it.
