I know it's almost the end of fear friday, but I'm gonna prompt anyways. Also, awesome blog!!! post-CW Tony and Peter are together, and he has joined the Guardians in space. They have become his 2nd family. But he's waiting for them to leave him eventually cause he thought the Avengers were his family and look what happened there.
Thank you so much ! :)
“Tony i need your help.” says Peter when the monster comes directly towards him.
“Kinda busy myself Starlord.” replies Tony and flies around the monster. It looks like a octopus but its green and really slushy. Tony hates it.
Monster in space are even weirder than on earth.
“Tony for real…” begins Peter but then the monster buries him under one of his…tentacles and Peter is gone. Tony screams at that and the next moment the monster gets him, too.
It takes every one of Tonys weapons to kill it and then Tony sinks to the ground.
“Petey?” he asks worried but there is now answer.
“What the fuck happened?” says Rocket who lands next to him. Tony shrugs. He can’t speak.
“I am Groot.”
“Yeah i know i saw it but i don’t believe it.” says Rocket to Groot and Tony leaves his suit. He runs around, looking for Peter.
“Guys! I got him. He is here.” says Gamora and Tony sees how Drax help her to get the tentacle away from Peter.
Peters eyes are closed and Tonys heart stops. Oh god. This is his fault!
“We need to take him to the ship.” says Gamora and Drax carries Peter. Tony feels numb. He follows them but doesn’t say anything.
“Do you feel his pulse?” asks Drax when Gamora check it and she nods. But she looks still so worried.
Nobody speaks to Tony when they go back to their ship.
Tony knows why. He fucked up. Again.
Half an hour later Tony is in his room on the milano and packs his things. He is going to leave. It was his fault and even if Peter is not dead he is only hurt because of him.
Tony wanted to face the monster and shot it down. That why he didn’t help Peter. But thats a ridiculous excuse.
There is a knock on his door and Tony looks up as Yondu comes in.
“Hey son.” he says and then sits down on Tonys bed. Yondu is kinda Peters father and he will definitely beat Tony up for that stunt.
“Hi.” mumbles Tony back. Sometimes (only when he is alone and had a bad nightmare) Tony images that Yondu is like father for him, too. Well technically he is his father-in-law.
He is not sure how old Yondu is exactly but he always treats Tony really well. That is going to change now.
“So you wanna leave?” asks Yondu and points at Tonys suitcase.
Tony nods at that and Yondu sighs.
“Why?” asks Yondu and Tony can’t help but sniff at that. He doesn’t want to cry in front of Yondu.
“Look son. I know you feel bad about what happened to Peter. And believe me when i say that he will be okay. He is sleeping but you can go see him if you want.” says Yondu and Tony looks still at his suitcase.
“I…hurt him.” whispers Tony when the first tear falls on one of his shirts.
“No you didn’t. The monster did.” says Yondu and he sounds really carefully. Its almost strange.
“Why don’t you hate me?” says Tony then and Yondu laughs.
“Because your are my family.” says Yondu and shrugs.
“We are all family here. And sometimes bad things happen in a family, but that only makes us stronger you know? I know that Peter can’t talk about his feelings very well. He gets that from me. But i know that he isn’t angry at you. And he wouldn’t want you to leave.” says Yondu and Tony looks at him.
He is still crying and Yondu smiles sadly at him.
“I had a family once.” whispers Tony then. He is not talking about his parents, because that wasn’t a real family.
But the avengers. And he fucked that up. They left because of him.
“They didn’t deserve you. But Peter is much happier with you and i know that you are happy here, too. So don’t run away because of one mistake. God knows how many i made and Peter is still saving my ass on a daily basis.” laughs Yondu and he holds his arms out.
Its rare that Yondu does that. But Tony loves his hugs. He cuddles into him and breathes.
“Thank you.” he says and Yondu just laughs.
“Peter also gave me that for you.” says Yondu and holds up a paper. It just says ‘Yes i still love you, asshole’ with a smiley face. Tony laughs.
When they had their first fight as a couple Tony had said that he would only believe Peter if he wrote his ‘i love you’ down as proof. It was a silly thought but since then Peter does it every time.
“He still loves me.” says Tony and he pets the paper carefully. Then he puts it on his wall. Yondu laughs.
“I can’t believe i’m saying this but we all love you, you damn human idiot.” grins Yondu and Tony sticks his tongue out at him.
“And now get your ass over to Peter!” says Yondu and Tony runs out of his room.
Yondu shakes his head at the boy and starts packing his things back in the cupboard. What a mess.
