"It's my turn now, May." Tony's voice is even quieter now. He strokes his thumb lightly along hers. "You and Ben took care of him after his parents died. And then it was just you, and you did a hell of a fantastic job. And now, I promise you that I will look after him. He will be safe. You can rest easy knowing that."
May is gone, and Peter doesn't have anyone else to turn to besides Tony Stark.

Nebula surveys the burnt orange landscape. “My ship is destroyed. I don’t know how Quill and the others got here, but I’ve scanned and cannot find his ship, either. The ship you came in can be ransacked for parts, but it won’t fly again. I’m going to need to build a ship. I may require your assistance in moving pieces. Your suit looks like it can adequately weld.” She looks down at him dispassionately. “You owe me a debt now.”
Tony should probably be worried about that. What a clearly dangerous alien considers a debt. As it is, he can’t bring himself to care. He raises himself to his feet, wincing slightly, and looks around. The planet is decaying, but also looks to be the equivalent of a junkyard. There’s always something salvageable in a junkyard.
Where Nebula and Tony build a ship to get to Earth and awkwardly talk about their issues when neither of them are particularly good at that.

Every. Single. Time. That Gamora beat her, the Titan she called Father replaced a piece of her with machinery to make her more sister's equal. Can you imagine how that would feel? After one particularly brutal session, the girl steals a ship and crash lands it on a planet she's never been on before.
Tony meets a strange girl with blue skin and shiny metal parts attached to her. She's unconscious, and he ends up taking her back to his home. He's not just going to leave her there for SHIELD to find.
It's a beautiful story : soulmates torn apart by war and sacrifice, each lost in their own way for over a half century, miraculously brought back together by the power of Fate to rejoin in the same bond that was thought broken...
But that's not this story. Because Marks can be made, Bonds can come from human will rather than Fate, and Souls can change.
In his defense, Howard really, honestly believed that Sergeant Barnes was dead.
