Jotting down another sentence for how Peter’s habits include a whole lot of remembering and keeping alive the people he loved and lost (the music from both Walkman and Zune are a present from Meredith and Yondu, after all), I suddenly realized that some of the other Guardians, mainly Rocket, would probably find this weird in the beginning – because Groot is newborn and doesn’t remember his old life, Drax lost his old life, Gamora’s parents were killed by Thanos, and Rocket never even had parents to begin with.
I just – I just want Peter to share his parents, or at least their memory, with all of the Guardians. “My parents are your parents” so to speak. Yondu already parented all of the Guardians he met, and I bet everything that Meredith would have done the same.
Parents for everyone.
(Especially Rocket, heck, that poor guy has an absolutely awful life before meeting the others.)
