The Ice Demon and the Hydra Masterpost

Title: The Ice Demon and the Hydra
Author: [profile] lizardbeth_j
Characters: Loki, Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, Peggy Carter, Col Phillips, Thor, Frigga, the Howling Commandos (minor Steve/Peggy)
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 50K
Continuity: AU to Captain America:The First Avenger
Series: The Ice Demon Series, The Snow Queen and the Ice Demon and The Ice Demon and the Snow Princess. They take place 150 years earlier, as a crossover with Frozen. They aren't necessary, but certainly useful for backstory and explanation for this particular 'verse.

Summary: More than a century ago, a Snow Queen melted the heart of the Ice Demon. When Arendelle is invaded, Loki vows to keep his promise to her, to protect their people. But these mortals are not as ignorant as he remembers, especially not his new enemy Johann Schmidt. What begins as an attempt to protect a small kingdom becomes a more important quest to protect the world from the evils of the Red Skull. But at least, he doesn't have to do it alone.

Notes and Acknowledgments: Because this runs parallel to First Avenger, I do obviously lean on the movie pretty heavily, including a few lines here and there. This story is, in essence, What if Loki joined the Howling Commandos? Note however that while Steve and Company are pretty much the same, Loki's point of divergence is long ago (as detailed in the previous Ice Demon tales), so he's quite a bit different.
