Headcanon that little Peter learned to whistle just like Yondu so he could both protect himself and just mess with people.

Smart as Peter is, he probably quickly figured out that for one, Yondu wasn’t going to eat him, no matter how much he threatened to – in fact, Yondu was the one person standing between Peter and those wanting to get rid of him because he was just “cargo” like most of the time. And second, the boy realized that Yondu is as feared as he is respected by his crew. One whistle, and everyone stands very, very still.

So once Peter counted two and two together and learned to whistle (it sounds almost like Yondu), he tends to wait when someone calls him “cargo” or “food” again and once that person isn’t looking directly at him anymore, he whistles.

And has a damn good laugh when his victim goes very, very pale, fearfully looking around because there is the tiniest chance that the Captain had heard them threatening the boy again, and then Peter laughs even louder when the realization hits the other that Yondu is nowhere to be seen.

Just Pete being a little pest from time to time.

(Yondu knows about it, but doesn’t bother to put an end to it. In fact, he may or may not have a good laugh about it himself.)

Okay, but imagine Peter arguing with Teen Groot…

Peter: Because I told you to, that’s why!  
Groot: I am Groot? 
Peter (Infuriated): Or what? Or what? Or…Or I’ll let Drax eat you

Peter realizes what he just said and stares at Groot with wide eyes. Groot mumbles some reply and stalks off, but Peter’s just standing there, unable to breathe for several minutes. He retreats to the bridge to stare out the window listening to his Zune on repeat for the rest of the night and nobody can figure out what’s up. 

Except maybe Kraglin, who heard the whole thing, and watches Peter with a nostalgic, sympathetic smile.
