Anonymous asked: Guardians of the Galaxy (comics)
The first character I first fell in love with: Rocket Raccoon. He asked if the seat went any higher during the ship’s log, because he’s so tiny. You can really only see him above his nose. And that’s how I fell completely in love with that furry-ass bastard.
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now: Drax the Destroyer. The film made me love him more than I ever did in the comics…
The character everyone else loves that I don’t: Adam Warlock. I despise this character so much. I have no idea how this character got his own title! He’s basically “Space Jesus” and strangely boring because of it! When he turned evil via Magus, he finally became interesting. To me, he’s a far better villain than he is a hero.
The character I love that everyone else hates: Gamora. Before the film, I knew more people who hated her than liked her. She was very harsh character in the comics and often called “the raging bitch” to those whom even knew who Gamora was (which was mostly though the NOVA title, not GUARDIANS), or she was referred to as “spank material” and nothing more, which was not helped by her highly impractical costumes either. With the Bendis run and the new film, where her personality went a little calmer, everyone suddenly loves her!
The character I used to
love but don’t any longerhate but now you love: The Collector/Taneleer Tivan. I blame the sexiness that is Benicio del Toro for turning him into an adorable “Space Liberace”!
The character I would totally smooch: Star-Lord and Jack Flag. I would totally snuggle Rocket, but he’d totally kill me. I’d snuggle Groot, too, but I might get splinters. I’d snuggle Cosmo also, but at least he’ll love it!
The character I’d want to be like: Groot.
The character I’d slap: Star-Lord and Jack Flag, on the ass! Mwhahahaha!
A pairing that I love: There are soooo many!
The Emperor of All My GOTG Ships: Yondu Udonta/Meredith Quill (Meredu), which is really short for Photon/Yondu Udonta/Meredith Quill/J’son of Spartax space opera RP that I have with 4eyeswordsmith.
Canonical OTPs: Star-Lord/Shadowcat (Star-Kitty), Gamora/Angela (Murder Girls), Moondragon/Quasar (Space Lesbians), Drax/Hovat or Yvette, etc.
Non-Canonical OTPs: Kraglin Obfonteri/Bereet (Kragreet, I blame 4eyeswordsmith for this), Star-Lord/Mantis, Rocket Racccon/Pria (OC), Groot/Sugar (OC).
Friendships: Cosmo the Space Dog/Lucky the Pizza Dog (because they’d be adorable and you know it!), Rocket Raccoon/Groot, Star-Lord/Jack Flag, Yondu Udonta/Star-Lord/Kraglin Obfonteri (they’re family!), Rocket Raccoon/His Guns (Rocket Launchers), Drax/Cammi, Star-Lord/Carol Danvers, Star-Lord/Richard Rider, Drax/His Saxophone, Meredith Quill/Photon, The Collector/His Collection, Rocket Raccon/Iron Man, Star-Lord/Iron Man, etc.

Crossover: Martian Manhunter/Mantis! Shuddup, they’d be adorable! Jack Flag/Phil Coulson, because they’d be best buds; they need to get together and fanboy all about Captain America!
A pairing that I despise: Star-Lord/Gamora, because they’re a like brother and sister! As a romantic ship, it feels weirdly incestuous! Gamora/Richard Rider and Gamora/Adam Warlock and Gamora/Iron Man, because they were all stupid! Rocket/Lylla, as cute as they are together, it’s mainly because she’s always been boringly written, then she ran off with Blackjack O’Hare and I never forgave her for that.
