A/N: This will be two parts with a possible epilogue. Wanted to thank @thebeasthasentered for reading my first draft and giving me some really helpful feedback.
Summary:Your best friend in the whole galaxy is coming to visit to help out with Thanos. When he arrives, Steve finds himself jealous of the close relationship Peter and you have. Will this stop the man from telling you how he feels? Will old feelings be brought up once Peter arrives? Does first love truly fade? Part Two
87: You’re so adorable
89: I could never forget you
You had met Rocket when you were dragged to a laboratory. You had been sold as lab experiment. You’d been taken from your family on Terra and sold to these scientists. They would experiment on you by prodding and changing things. They eventually implanted metal pieces into you and reset your brain. You could pilot anything now. You could fight faster and better and you could understand any language. Not long after that they had dragged Rocket in. He was different. They tore him apart and remade him and you saw him everyday. His cage was next to yours and the two of you talked whenever you could. You made plans to escape together. When that day came he made it out and you hadn’t.
When Nova Corp finally figured out what had been happening there Rocket was so far gone that you figured you’d never see him again. Nova Corp had set you free letting you search for your own path. You’d decided to do what Rocket and you had talked about. You stole and hunted people down for units. Things were going good. Until someone had set out a bounty for Peter Quill.
You had tracked him down to Xandar. Little did you know Rocket and Groot had found him too. You had managed to get in place to take Peter Quill Dow when someone else had gotten him. After the huge fight between you, a giant tree, and a green lady you had all been caught by Nova Corp. In the Nova Corp line up you had realized it was Rocket but he didn’t say a word to you not even when you were in transport.
In the prison you had to change in front of them all. You could feel eyes on your back as The others traced the metal pieces and deep set scars. You knew they must have seen Rocket’s too. You kept to yourself watching only Rocket. It was only when Peter had gotten threatened and Rocket intervened that he even acknowledged you.
“Anyone tries to touch him or her you go through us! Or better yet we go through you!” He shouted pointing at you and Quill.
You had waited until people left you alone to go find him. You walked close to him trying to think of what to say. He had turned to look at you and you knew. He was the same exact Rocket from the lab.
“Rocket…. it’s me (y/n). I don’t know if you remember me.” You said quietly playing with your hands.
“I could never forget you (Y/N),” He answered a small grin on his face, “just had to be your hero.”
You gave a small laugh as you watched him looking around. You could tell he was thinking about how to break out. Your smile was wide as you watching the gears turning. He was definitely the same old Rocket.
“You figuring out how to get out?” You asked after a minute.
“Yeah. But this time I’m making sure I take you with me.” He answered scanning the room.
The large tree creature walked over to the two of you watching in curiousity. He watched you for a minute before growing a flower out of his hand and giving it to you.
“You’re so adorable! Both of you!” You exclaimed taking it from him and putting it behind Rocket’s ear.
Over on my main blog, before I had this one, I started a practice of tagging any cool art of Sly I saw with “my boy ringtail”. I’ve kinda carried it over to here, because why not. Here’s what I got so far:
Sly: “my boy ringtail”
Carmelita: “favourite fox inspector”
Tennessee: “mentally ill raccoon cowboy”
and that’s all the ones I actually needed until today, because it’s not like we’re drowning in fanart here, tragically. I’ve mostly just seen these three.
But as of today I scrambled to come up with
Penelope: “spanner in the works”
Neyla: “HISTORY’S GREATEST MONSTER”
so let’s maybe round out the obvious holes
Murray: “totem pole of strongism”
Bentley: “hacker in a half-shell”
also also, i had
Ratchet&Clank: “friends from space”
Ratchet&Clank & Jak&Daxter: “the pointy ears crew of friendship”

I’ve put up the cat ears fic up on AO3, for anyone who wishes to read. :)
I believe this is the one you couldn’t open fellow @just-canadian? Or which was it? If this was the one, I hope AO3 doesn’t give you troubles, if you still want to read it :)
Imagine Soldier learning about pokemon and asking other mercs if they want to battle Before they have a chance to process what he is talking about, he chucks a raccoon with pikachu ears made of cardboard taped to its head at their face
Description of Experiment: Subject has been adapted to be a raccoon of sorts, artificial tail attached to lower back is connected by nerves so he can move it, highly sensitive. Ears have been ripped off and he has been given raccoon ears instead to listen from, sensitive as well. uncovered hand has been swapped to a modified hand with appropriate abilities of a raccoon. Mouth has been altered to match a raccoon’s.
History: The subject was taken when he found us trying to kidnap project #17, Sonia Nevermind, he put up a good fight, but we were able to knock both of them out. He was experimented on second. When the operation was done, he woke up and surprisingly enough, he did not get violent, but he was incredibly scared and shocked. We placed in him back into the cell but he pleaded for his hamsters, Professor Junko had a brilliant idea for a test and broke each one of the others hamsters neck in front of the subject and dropped them on the ground. Surprisingly again, the subject was so shocked than he started to hallucinate that the hamsters are still alive and he takes care of them, the only times he gets incredibly violent is when somebody tells him that his hamsters are dead or if they try and get near them or if somebody is trying to hurt project #17, Sonia Nevermind, which is situated right beside him. He’s often comforted by the banshee replica.
