Underrated moments in tpp: that time in Train from Nowhere where Juno gets scared and tells peter to return the car and that they can never work out past this job because peter is a thief and Juno hunts down thieves.
And then peter gets hesitant and promises to return the car and apologizes for “misreading the situation” and backs off with the flirting for a good while until he’s sure Juno really likes him and wants to keep going.
Like??? We can praise peter for being a homme fatale all we like, but when the chips are down my boi respects boundaries and the moment he got the idea explicitly that Juno genuinely didn’t want to be wooed, he shoved his hopes and dreams of thrills and decadence across the galaxy aside and was willing to accept that Juno just wasn’t interested. And he was in love! For real! But he was just gonna let it go with half a conversation.
Hes all for breaking down Juno’s defenses to flirt, because Juno is a playing-hard-to-get brick wall that can’t accept nice things, but he also makes a concerted effort to get Juno’s consent before making any real sort of move, and personally I think that’s very sexy of him.
