    Summary

    “I have no idea,” he says, before lowering his voice because he’s still not convinced she’s not listening in on their conversations. The fear is well founded, alright? He swears she looks at him sometimes – with that quirked eyebrow, and penetrating gaze – as if she knows his every secret. And he has secrets. One big, red and blue, spandex covered, web-slinging, secret that no one can find out about. “Who knows anything about Jones?”

    And it’s a legitimate question.

    He knows next to nothing about their colleague.

    Apart from the fact she’s damn good at her job, is incapable of uttering a sentence that isn’t dripping in sarcasm, is a little (a whole lot) intimidating, he knows nothing about Michelle Jones.

    Not for lack of trying though.

    Summary

    "Why did you do this?" Gamora whispers, suddenly unable to speak her usual volume. "Why did you put your life on the line?"

    Peter purses his lips, looking uncharacteristically small. "I mean, that's what friends do, right? They stick up for each other?"

    Gamora shakes her head. "Friends do that when it's necessary. I had it under control. You know that I can protect myself. What you did was completely idiotic. Why did you do it?"

    "I guess I just couldn't help myself," Peter says, a smile tugging at his lips. "You have that effect on me."

     

    (or: five times Peter idiotically risks his life for Gamora, and the one time he... can't)

    Summary

    Peter's got no roadmap, no established routine for how to make Gamora feel better after being murdered by her abusive “father” and resurrected after several days in some strange other realm.

    That’s probably a good thing, though. This isn’t exactly the kind of thing he wants to have experience with.
