(Spoilers for GotG 2)
I see this idea of Yondu meeting Meredith in the afterlife going around and I highly agree on the idea of Peter’s parents finally meeting…
… but can we add some people to that welcome?
Let there not only be Meredith waiting for Yondu once he enters the afterlife.
Let there be Tullk, Oblo, Horuz, all the Ravagers that have helped and served Yondu until their very end. The once loyal to him, the once who would cheer and howl and laugh when they see their Captain appearing before them. Let them clap him on the back, backing off to see his reaction, laughing when he is too overwhelmed to snap at them for their familiarity with him.
Let there be the children Yondu has delivered to Ego – the ones he used to have nightmares of because he felt guilt that he would never admitted out loud. Let them smile and run up to him when they see him, some of them still holding the trinkets he has slipped them before they had to leave his ship. Let them cling to his legs and ask for his whistling and his arrow because in the dead of night, Yondu used to whistle to them to calm them down when they were homesick.
Let there be a whole bunch of people where Yondu expected no one to be happy to see him. It’s perhaps a weird group – a Terran woman to bright and innocent amidst the rowdy ragtag bunch of Ravagers and children too young and innocent to be already here right next to them…
… but Yondu finds he doesn’t really mind, being almost buried under all the people assailing him.
It’s one hell of an after party, and really, that’s probably the best welcome he could have gotten.
