Rocket gets caught, makes a self-discovery.
Rocket's been drinking a lot lately, Peter thinks that the pyrotechnic procyon needs a drinking companion to not get in trouble. Except somehow, Quill starts saying and doing the wrong things and it cascades from there.
She doesn’t condescend to him by explaining what he already understands, instead jumping to the first possible solution. “Do you know how to reactivate your vocal processors?”
He shakes his head, dazed, and feels that he’s failed something.
Gamora’s dress makes shifting sounds as she crosses her arms. Then she earns his pathetic, eternal gratitude by asking, “How long will it take you to learn?”
(Written for the kink meme. Rocket loses his voice.)
