Why this must be read: These two fandoms so belong together. Short fic that ties together the O'Connells and Marion Ravenwood and her son Mutt. Mutt and Alex are so cute, and it's a nice glimpse into the future to see what the O'Connells have been up to.

"Though I assure you, Henry's father would be appreciative of anyone who teaches his son to aim a firearm."

Title: The Black Sleep by Carolyn Golledge
Fandom: Star Wars/Indiana Jones
Pairing: None; mentions of Han/Leia, but that's not the focus.
Length: 34 pages in Adobe Reader.
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author Website: Unknown
Why this must be read:

While the idea of Han Solo and Indiana Jones meeting up is obvious, it's rarely explored in-depth. Carolyn writes a situation that intertwines Han's carbonite freezing and Indiana's experience with Kali Ma. References to Jones' expertise on the occult helps to blend the two worlds together. And there's no Willie! Yay!

Interesting tidbit: This fic was originally published in the fanzine Tremor in The Force #5 back in 1989. Since then, Carolyn is the only fanfic author I've heard of who has gone on to write canon.

31st-Aug-2007 10:11 pm The Mummy Direst Affair By Laughingacademy (PG)
Pairing: NS/IK
Author on LJ: [ profile] laughingacademy
Why this must be read:

The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’s three corner structure --- agents, villains and Innocent --- allows for a great deal of flexibility, particularly when deciding who will fill the villain and innocent roles. In the original classic series, one of the pleasures was seeing which famous star might show up each week. In the Ace novels, well-known literary characters (like Sherlock Holmes) and real life people (like the legendary writer/editor Forrest J. Ackerman) often made appearances.

The tradition continues in MFU fan fiction. One of the first widely distributed MFU fan novels had the agents crossing paths with Captain James Kirk and Mr. Spock. There have been a number of similar encounters with other fan favorites since.

This story, which was written as a Secret Santa gift for the [ profile] muncle community’s annual Down the Chimney exchange for 2005, finds Solo and Kuryakin on the trail of a mummy, competing with a crazy Thrush chief named Reginald Ramsey who believes himself to be the reincarnation of the pharaoh Rameses II.

Traveling on the Twentieth-Century Limited, they meet a certain tweedy professor, an archaeologist named Jones who just happens to be carrying a bullwhip (and he’s pretty good at using it, too.) Jones is occupied by a more personal mission of his own, but naturally, he’s glad to help out.

This is a really fun jaunt with some clever lines of dialogue (Indy definitely sounds like Indy, too) and it has a little twist at the end that sharp-eyed MFU fans will most surely appreciate.

Title: Raiders of the Lost Carbonite by Carolyn Golledge
Pairing: Marion/Indy, Han/Leia, PG only
Author Website: The Corellian Embassy
Why this must be read:

What would happen if Indy found not the Ark of the Covenant, but a carbonite slab in the Well of Souls? The answer is an exciting romp through Egypt and Coruscant as well.

Carolyn Golledge is one of the foremost names in Han Solo oriented fanfic. Here she takes the impressive task of not only dealing with Han, but Indiana Jones as well. Exciting, well written, and an interesting look at the whole idea of the Ark, and well as the dynamics between a pair for favorite adventure heros.
