flight 2012

anonymous asked:

Could you do one on peter etc and the guardians wanting tony to join them in space but he is still scarred from the battle of New York and peter is the one to help him decide to go.

Tony stands on his roof and looks at the spaceship. The milano looks wonderful but Tony can’t help himself. He shivers.

“Rocket? I need you to check the turbine again. Then we can leave.” says Peter and Tony looks up to him. Peter stands on the ladder and Rocket is somewhere under the ship.

Gamora said she would bring Groot on his seat and even Drax is already inside.

“Tony?” says Peter, because Tony still stands there. Frozen.

“Hm?” is the only thing Tony can say without starting to puke.

Peter looks really worried now. But Tony can’t help it. He is scared.

“Are you nervous?” asks Peter when he comes down and stands in front of Tony.

“Hm.” Tony says again. He doesn’t have to open his mouth for that.

“Hey it’s gonna be okay.” says Peter and he slowly reaches for Tonys shoulder to pat him there. Tony jerks away.

“I- i d-don’t know.” answers Tony finally and he can’t help his scared look. What if he sees those aliens again?

What if he falls from space and this time there is no Hulk to catch him.


“It’s n-nothing.” chokes Tony and nods firmly. He can do this. He promised he would go with them.

And here is nothing left for Tony.

On earth? Yes Pepper, Rhodey and the Spiderkid. And Tony promised them he would visited every two months. And he will miss them. But he knows they love him and he loves them. So it’s okay.

But at his tower? Not really.

Well. He did cry when he said goodbye to Dummy, U and Butterfinger. And Jarvis will now only be in his suit. But they are gonna be okay. Pepper promised to look after them. Peter, too.

“You sure?” asks Peter again and Tony goes toward the ship. He takes the steps carefully and manages to go trough the door. So far so fine.

“Turbine is ready.” says Rocket and when Tony hears the loud sound its almost like the hellicarrier.

And that brings back those memories of Loki and the Chitauri. And a moment later Tony is falling. He is falling from space and no one is there…

Oh god he is going to die, isn’t he?


Tony can’t breathe. He has no oxygen. And the suit is too heavy and…

“Please say something Tony!” says that voice again and Tony opens his eyes again.

“I’m here sweetheart. Everything is okay. I’ve got you.”

“P-peter?” croaks Tony and he tries to breath again. This time it goes a lot better. His vision isn’t swimming anymore and now he sees Peter right above him.

“Yeah I’m here. You scared me pretty bad, darling.”

Tony wants to ask what is going on with those nicknames. But he tries to focus on breathing.

“N-nothing.” he manages to get out and Peter shakes his head.

“Doesn’t looked like nothing.” answers Peter and Tony realizes that he lays in Peters lap. He can feel the heat in his cheeks.

“Mr. Quill. It appears that Sir had a panic attack due to his flight in space 2012. His suit shut down after he managed to throw the nuke into the chitauri spaceship. Apparently Sir thought he was back to fallen on earth and dying.” summarizes Jarvis up.

“J?” asks Tony breathless, because he isn’t wearing his suit. So why can he hear him? He isn’t even wearing his watch.

“Thats right, Sir. I’m here.” says Jarvis again and Tony frowns.

“Rocket installed him, when you said you wanted to join us. He said you needed your best friend with you.” says Peter, because he knows what Tony wants to ask.

“Really?” Tony asks because that was…nice. He didn’t want to pressure the guardians into having Jarvis around. Cap and the other didn’t like him very much.

“Course. We don’t leave anyone behind, hm.” says Peter and he strokes Tonys hair. Tony realizes that they are alone. Looks like the others gave them some time alone.

“Also i’m sure there are a few … uhm people you like to meet.” says Peter and a familiar beep echoes trough the room. Tony looks around. They are in his new bedroom, that Rocket made him. It’s next to Peters and Tony liked it the first second he saw it.

And there in the corner are Dummy, U and Butterfingers. Tony grins so wide, but he can’t help and tears up.

“They are coming with us?” Tony asks and Dummy beeps again.

“Yeah thought you like the surprise. But i’m not sure if its a good idea to leave… i mean you just had a pretty bad panic attack about space.” says Peter and he lays his hand on Tonys cheek.

“No! I wanna go!” says Tony and sits up. He is still in Peters lap.

“Tony we are still on earth and you just blacked out:” says Peter and he looks so worried. Tony looks down.

“I really wanna go with you.” mumbles Tony and Peter sighs.

“I’m gonna regret this, but fine. But you aren’t leaving my side, yes? And i want Jarvis to report me your vitals all the time.” says Peter and Jarvis confirms that.

Tony smiles.

“I promise. And now that i have my friends with me, its going to be alright.” whispers Tony and Peter chuckles.

“Oh wow. So i’m not your friend.” says Peter fake hurt and Tony smiles.

“I hope you would be more.”
