in the trailer, peter saying “i’m sorry” isn’t becuase he’s dying and feels like he’s failed tony. it’s because he can’t fight anymore and feels like he’s failed tony. do you guys remember in civil war when peter was slightly injured tony was just like “yoU’RE DONE!!! YOU’RE GOING HOME!!! I’M CALLING AUNT MAY!!!” peter had a black eye, maybe a minor concussion at the most, but tony is so protective over him that even the slightest injury is a big deal. he sees peter as his son and the thought of losing him terrifies him. what i think is happening in that scene is peter is badly injured and can’t go on and tony has to send him home. peter feels guilty that he can no longer be apart of the war and you cannot convince me otherwise.
Sometimes you work hard on your happiness for weeks, doing all the right things, and still, you’re not quite where you want to be. But sometimes, on a random Thursday in April, you get up early, you breathe the fresh air, and the happiness is back. You can try all you want to control your life, but you can’t, and any belief you can is an illusion. Anytime spent denying yourself what you know is the truth is wasted time. You know what you need to do.
So I do
know that it is highly unlikely, but I would absolutely love if, after Infinity War, Peter would meet his Grandpa again.
it - it’s very likely Peter’s first time back on Terra. He never went back –
probably Yondu didn’t let him, to ensure Ego wouldn’t get wind of Meredith’s
child being alive and well and kept away from him.
Grandpa did not only lose his daughter to cancer that one day, most likely
after weeks and months of fighting the disease, but he also lost his grandson
that day. Suddenly gone with no hint
of where he had went, who had taken him – as if he had vanished from Earth.
(Well, surprise there.)
Peter wished to go back once in a while, but was not allowed to, was stopped by
the Ravagers when he tried. Perhaps he just gave up one day, thinking that his
family was better off without him, anyway, after all these years.
thinks that they have just forgotten about him by now.
Peter’s Grandpa spent years looking for his grandson. Perhaps one day –
especially after the otherworldly fights the Avengers had had a few times (which
had been in the news), after seeing that there is more to our universe than he believed before, Peter’s Grandpa
starts to wonder if Meredith had been right, if there is something out there,
just perhaps, that’s where Peter has vanished to – the stars, like Meredith
always wished for. Star Lord, the
name echoes faintly in his memories and awakens a tiny, silly hope that Peter
is still out there, somewhere.
there is this huge war, the Infinity
War, it’s all over the news, it’s on TV, even some live scenes that some crazy
reporters have filmed can be seen there, and it’s then and there that Peter’s
Grandpa almost gets a heart attack because… because…
there, among all that chaos, all those things that shouldn’t be real, shouldn’t exist – aliens, and, and magic
and things he couldn’t even imagine before – there, he catches a glimpse of
someone that seems to be a ghost and yet so absolutely, wonderfully alive.
man, with Meredith’s eyes and her hair and with that bright sun-like smile that
he knows from his grandson, and with more pride and stubbornness and defiance
than they have ever taught him… dancing on
a battle field and then firing weapons at aliens (who taught him fighting, gods above) and circling
through the air with a damned jetpack of
all things, what is this silly, reckless boy doing…
is nothing stopping Peter’s Grandpa anymore – he’s up and about, hastening to
get ready, to drive or fly as fast as he can to what had been a battlefield
only shortly before.
hope is back, burning like a wildfire, morphing into knowing as he goes,
feeling years younger again.
is alive, and he is here.
is a whole bunch of questions he has for his grandson.
