15th-Aug-2011 12:23 pm The Husband of Shau'ri by Jedibuttercup (PG13)

Fandom: STARGATE SG1/THE MUMMY
Pairing: none
Length: 2,200 words

Masterlist on DW
Why this must be read:

Summary: Evie could not be certain, but it sounded a great deal like the Ancient Egyptian equivalent of "Oh, no, not again," which struck her as a rather bizarre thing for a newly awakened mummy to say.

At times hilarious and very touching, this crossover touches the heart in many ways. A cross that may raise a few eyebrows with the two fandoms involved, Jedi Buttercup actually makes it work wonderfully. It's extremely original, and that by itself, really, recommends it. This fic made me smile, tear up a bit at how much crap the universe likes to hurl at Daniel, and just chuckle at Evie's reactions. Jedi is one of the queens of Stargate crossovers, and this fic just illustrates why.

Why this must be read: Sorry to rec a third story from this author, but she's just the queen of Mummy fanfic! The fic starts out with Jonathan in jail and just gets more and more awkward and funny. Evie tells Jonathan she has some special news to tell him, and as usual, Jonathan gets it totally wrong and tries to, er, talk to Rick. Very amusing. I love the fact that no one wants to dance with Evie lol.

Why this must be read: When Ardeth is kidnapped, Rick has a chance to pay back the debt he owes Ardeth when he helped rescue Alex. Nice bits include Rick considering the possibility of being a Med-jai, the introduction of Lock Nah (the big black guy in TMR)'s brother and I really like the rescue angle of the story.

Fandom: THE MUMMY
Pairing: Rick/Evie
Length: 3,000 words
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: Eve @ ff.net
Why this must be read: The problem with riding off into the sunset is that it inevitably gets dark afterwards. My favorite author's take on how Rick and Evie got engaged - in the middle of the desert on the way back to Cairo after The Mummy, wrapped in a filthy flea infested blanket sleeping next to a camel. Nothing fancy, or even clean, for those two! Amusing, excellent dialogue, and Jonathan is just so perfect - he just wants them to stfu already and agree lol.

Why this must be read: While on a trip to Egypt, Rick runs into his long lost childhood friend Margaret. It's a happy reunion until pesky things like creepy dream visitations from Imhotep, death, and Ardeth Bey intrude. It was nice seeing Imhotep again actually, even if he seems to never actually die. Margaret is a nice addition to the family, and there are a few sequels to this fic if you're interested, check the author page to find them. It's almost like choose your own ending, you can pick the fic where Margaret ends up with Jonathan or Ardeth... The original fic is good, not so into the sequels, since I find it hard to believe that Ardeth ends up with a white chick, but it might be your cup of tea.

Fandom: THE MUMMY
Pairing: Rick/Evie, Rick/OFC
Length: 1,770 words
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: Buffelyn @ ff.net
Why this must be read: Someone from Rick’s past bonds with Evelyn. This fic stands out because it's through the eyes of another character, who presents a different point of view than usual through their role of observer. I especially liked this one because at first I really had no idea what was going on, and even though the ending quickly became clear, it was still well done.

Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] jedibuttercup

Why this must be read: Jedi Buttercup does a great job imagining the conversation between Rick and Jonathan, when Jonathan wants to know Rick's intentions towards Evie. More sincere than funny, but still a great immediate post- The Mummy addition.

22nd-Apr-2009 10:54 am Never Spellbound by a Starry Night by Eve (PG-13)
Fandom: THE MUMMY
Pairing: Rick/Evie
Length: 46,000+ words
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: Eve @ ff.net
Why this must be read: I was going to save this fic for the last rec, but I couldn't help myself. This is THE BEST MUMMY FANFIC I HAVE EVER READ - if ff.net crashed and you could only recover one fic, this is the one you pick. I think Eve is the best author in the fandom, hands down. I'll be reccing a few more of her fics later on, but let's start with the best first.

This fic, IMO, is exactly what happened after The Mummy, it's that perfect. While juggling wedding plans and issues with their relationship, Rick, Evie, and Jonathan are pursued by a gang of thieves in search of an important piece of papyrus...What can I say, it's an adventure fic like the rest, but it does a great job balancing both Rick and Evie and the adventure. The dialogue is superb, the plot is well thought out, it has some awesomely funny bits that could have been straight from the movie, and it's smolderingly hot with much discussion over whether the engaged Rick and Evie should just do it already. MMmmmm. Eve also covers Rick and Evie's wedding, and she does an excellent job.

I'm going to stop drooling over this story and let you read it already.

Pairing: Rick/Evie
Length: 42,000+ words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] abracax
Author Website: Laurie M @ ff.net
Why this must be read: Set post The Mummy, at a party at the British Embassy, Evie meets up with some old acquaintances who proceed to wreck havoc upon her life and engagement to Rick. I wish I could describe the plot better, but the truth is all these adventure stories kind of sound the same after a while. This time there's an ancient amulet that will wake the Sphinx and let lose the evil Seth, who will then - you guessed it - destroy the world. You know, the good stuff. It's fun, with a few sexy bits and decent original characters.

21st-Apr-2009 01:40 am The Memoirs Of Jonathon Carnahan by Xenon (PG)
Fandom: THE MUMMY
Pairing: gen
Length: 66,000+ words
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: Xenon @ ff.net, The Trapdoor
Why this must be read: Like the title says, this is Jonathan's memoirs, pre movie. Very well done, Xenon has the voice down perfectly. Jonathan rambles all over the place, blusters and primps and brags but still manages to tell quite a few stories. And the subtitle to his memoirs is Explorer, Archaeologist And Defender Of Mankind, lol. Excellent and detailed character history. My favorite story is the one where Evie and Jonathan get kidnapped, as per usual.

I'm not sure what it is in a man's life that makes him sit down to write his own memoirs. I knew a fellow once who wrote somebody else's, but then he was the boring sort who never did anything of note, and probably felt that the only flash of glory he'd ever get was through association with a greater name. Writing one's own memoirs, however, is generally inclined to bring on feelings of depression; reminders of one's own mortality; the kind of thing that a fellow like me rather tends to try to avoid, on the whole. Not that I need much reminding about mortality of course. I've seen enough things in my life to know that death can be around every corner, if you're stupid enough to let it wait for you there. Seen enough to know that it's not half as final as it would like to make us think, too - but I'm getting ahead of myself. Like I said, these are my memoirs, and it's traditional with such things to start from the beginning.

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."

14th-Apr-2009 01:32 pm Brother of My Soul by Xanthia Morgan (PG-13)

Length: Both stories together are 80,000+ words
Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: Xanthia Morgan @ ff.net
Why this must be read: The O'Connell family goes Med-jai. Seriously. Rick and Ardeth find out they're long lost soul brothers (it is not as corny as it sounds!! Hey, if you bought all that stuff about Evie being Nefertiri, this works too, okay), there is excellent Ardeth backstory, and Alex is the boy who would be king. Good stuff. Nice, long, well written and comes with a sequel even longer with an excellent adventure that takes place in England and Nazis!! You're going to be glued to the computer screen for a long time with these fics, I promise.

Author on LJ: unknown
Author Website: Kristi @ ff.net
Why this must be read: This fic was originally meant to be part of a series, but sadly, Kristi never got around to finishing it :( However, the fic can still be read on its own. Rick and Evie go to a jazz club - I would have loved to see that on film. Kristi has Rick and Evie's dialogue and squabbling down perfectly. Very cute story and development of their relationship.

Why this must be read: Alex thinks about his family on a dark and stormy night, when he and Jonathan are home alone and kinda scared about it. Downright adorable, sweet and well written. Love the relationship between Alex and Jonathan, and Alex's perceptions of his parents. They're just such an awesome family, gah. And Jonathan will always be like twelve years old lol.

"She wanted me to have something I could do when I had to stay in camp and tried solitaire, which is ab-so-lute-ly mind-numbing. I was bored out of my head!" Old indignation surfaced in the seven-year old's face, and Jonathan snorted, clearly recalling his own encounters with the demon of solitaire, maybe from the mystic days before Mum had met Dad. "So she taught me poker and gin rummy and canasta, which Dad said were only good if you could win the pants off some bloke's ass." He immediately cringed, expecting mother or father to descend on his being with reprimands and painfully disappointed looks exaggerated for effect; fortunately, he only had Jonathan. "So Dad showed me how to glare people down, just like he can, and," his pale granite gaze, blue flecked with grey like his father's, switched to the slant-eyed man, "I learned how to cheat watching you, Uncle Jon."

Why this must be read: A day in the life of Jonathan. Cards, gin, women, debts, lots of bragging and antagonism with Rick. I love how each bit has a timestamp on it, love the first person, she's got Jonathan's voice and behavior down perfectly. Very funny piece.

You have quite an unusual-tasting lipstick, if you don't mind me saying. Not that I go around kissing ladies very often. No, it's a lonely life, being a scholar and an archaeologist-adventurer. You should see my brother-in-law. Why, he'd have been alone, quite alone, if it hadn't been for my intervention. I'm a secret romantic at heart, as I'm sure you've realised. I quickly came to the conclusion that Evie - whose greatest ambition it was to join the Bembridge Scholars - well, she'd be wasted on a gentleman of good character and noble upbringing and gentle breeding. So when I met Rick O'Connell, I thought, Jonathan, here's the man for your sister!

2nd-Apr-2009 07:55 pm The Fourth Side of the Pyramid by Miss Becky (PG)
Fandom: THE MUMMY
Pairing: gen, Rick/Evie
Length: 28,000+ words
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] evilmissbecky
Author Website: Miss Becky @ ff.net
Why this must be read: After the end of TMR, Jonathan reflects on his life as a total loser, especially in light of the amazing lives of his family: Right. She's a reincarnated princess and I'm a warrior for God. And your son leads the way to Ahm Shere. Three sides of the pyramid. Considering how pyramids have four sides, Jonathan goes to Ardeth to find out what he meant, and what his destiny might be. The second story deals with the inevitable occurrence of Jonathan screwing up his said destiny with disastrous personal results, and how the gang manages to save the day yet again and Jonathan redeems himself. This time, the plot device is the diamond of Ahm Shere that Jonathan grabbed off the top of the pyramid. I like how the author fleshes out Ardeth and Jonathan, letting us into their minds and giving them interesting stories. A good adventure tale, with much manly angst.

The heavy diamond gave him something to focus on. Knowing he was being a coward, he dropped his head and stared at the gem. "I wanted to ask you something."

Ardeth said nothing to this.

"You said--" He gripped the diamond tightly and took a deep breath. "You said Rick was a Med-jai. Evy is a reincarnated princess of Egypt. Alex is the chosen one." He forced himself to look up at Ardeth, although it was the hardest thing he had ever done; it felt like there was a weight the size of that diamond on the back of his neck, wanting to bow down his head. "So tell me. What am I supposed to do?"

Ardeth looked nonplussed. "You're asking me?"

Jonathan leaned in, the cold edge of the diamond digging into his stomach. "You told them their destinies. Now tell me mine. I want to be the fourth side of the pyramid. Tell me my task."

Hey guys, [livejournal.com profile] palmaceae here, reccing The Mummy movie series! Well, actually I'm only reccing fics that have to do with The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, because I still haven't seen The Scorpion King and The Mummy 3 and I don't think I ever will. But I love The Mummy and TMR. I love them so much that I did the unthinkable: I READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE MUMMY CATEGORY ON FANFICTION.NET. No one should be forced to do that. But I did - all for love. And now, I present to you the best Mummy fics in the fandom. Sorry to all you Jonathan/Ardeth slashers, I'm strictly a Rick/Evie girl :( And speaking of Evie, is there a consensus on how to spell her name, Evy or Evie? I don't know what to use.

This is a really beautiful fic, filled with amazing imagery and words, and it captures an air of mysticism and mystery.

Title: Love, After by Jedi Buttercup
Pairing: Buffy/Rick
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] jedibuttercup
Author Website: Jedi Buttercup Fiction
Why this must be read: Ignore the lame title, it's a great little fic. Buffy Summers finds a new boyfriend named Rick O'Connell. She thinks she's finally found a normal guy with nothing that supernatural about him... until he spills the beans about his past. Very sweet fic, even though I'm adamantly opposed to Rick/anyone-not-Evie, but a tired and lonesome Buffy/Rick actually works. Jedi Buttercup does a great job combining these two fandoms, something that should seriously be done more often.

Jonathan dosn't look forward to travel for three weeks with the lovebirds that are Rick and Evy, to return to Cairo. But then he finds a note in his cloths, that changes things so far that in the end he is almost sad, that the travel isn't longer.
