So I've been posting Hands of Clay chapters for the past several months without putting up the notifications here - I've drifted away from this place so much. Anyway. Consider this a mega-update:

Chapter 16 went up yesterday. If you want to start at the beginning, here's chapter 1.

About: This is a Bucky/Steve no-powers!AU/kidfic, where we have James Barnes (homes from the wars) and his adopted daughter Natasha meeting up with James’ old friend Steve Rogers and his son Clint, and all the fallout that comes from that. A story about love and friendship and all that schmoopy stuff.

An Avengers/Stargate story by [personal profile] mhalachai

Summary: Old soldiers never die, they just fade away. What is left when everything you have, everything you remember, is stripped away? Sgt. James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes, the Winter Soldier, is about to find out how impossible it is to pick up those pieces.

Rating: Mature for violence, trauma, sexual content
Characters: James "Bucky" Barnes, Natasha Romanoff, Steve Rogers, etc

In chapter 11, a lot happens - most notably there is more interaction between Steve and Bucky, and Bucky and Natasha too. And there’s an interesting wrench thrown into the works for everyone’s future happiness too :/

mhalachai: (Peggy Carter/RiB)

Summary: For decades, Peggy Carter has had only two constants in her life: Howard Stark, and the Winter Soldier.

Chapter 11: Pop quiz: this chapter contains cameos by:
  1. Tony Stark;
  2. Pepper Potts;
  3. Maria Hill;
  4. The Winter Soldier; or
  5. All of the above
Also ps content advisory for a child in peril.


For those of you who are new to this story, Rhapsody in Blue is my “what-if” on Peggy Carter’s life after the end of the War. Obviously canon-divergent now, and non-compliant with CA:TWS (especially their take on the Winter Soldier, I’m going more in the direction of his characterization in the comics), it’s a way for me to write about Peggy, whom I adore.

I don't even know what happened here. I was on a lot of cold meds yesterday and yeah this happened.

Hell's Gate
An Agents of SHIELD story by [personal profile] mhalachai

So, I've increased the chapter numbers (and likely will have to again) and have two chapters this go-aroud. It was supposed to be one chapter, but the tone was so different that I split it.

Hawaii was irritatingly sunny for December. Of course, Peggy reflected as she sat on the patio of her hotel pool, Hawaii was always irritatingly sunny. )
