Enchantress. The Mummy. Well, I've picked it back up again! A second look at a Mummy fandom cliche: the extra character "along for the ride," with a very different feel from Tramps and Thieves. Hattie O'Connell has been searching for years to find her brother, and finally tracks him down to a prison in Cairo. I really wanted to write a character that completely shakes up the plot of The Mummy simply by being a part of the equation. Thanks to Hattie's involvement, directly and indirectly, the plot is taking all sorts of new turns. (And one such turn, as promised, will result in an Ardeth romance that actually makes an ounce of sense.)
Amour Fou. The Mummy. A prequel to And Love Thee After, exploring, comparing, and contrasting the romantic affair between Ardeth and Delphine with the dismal, duty-based marriage of Beni and Evelyn. It will eventually lead into an updated/revised version of ALTA.
Wealthy Bastards. The Mummy. An AU in which Beni and Gad discover the treasure room and devise a way to lift all of the gold out from everyone else's noses. As can be expected, obstacles arise, and they're forced to reluctantly take on a few partners. My big goal here is to use all canon characters. As fun as OCs are, I think it's worth trying to work with what we got and seeing how that goes.
Exeunt. The Mummy. A small, three-part installment to follow up Amour Fou/And Love Thee After. It's 2/3 done already, and I plan to post it once Amour Fou is finished, and/or after the ALTA revision is cmplete.
Untitled Beni/Kitty Comedy. The Mummy. Because I've been told that A Good Time can't be the only story we see Kitty in, and I'm inclined to agree.
Untitled Amour Fou Subplot. The Mummy. I've been thinking it'd be fun to do a small (either one-shot, 3-part, or 5-part) story about Jemima and Daniels in Texas. I love writing about relationships with secrets, and I love the prospect of a setting where the Americans are the only canons. Also, Giant. Have you seen it? You should. It'll definitely be a source of inspiration.
The Scarab Society. The Mummy. I officially decided to put this one on the ol' hiatus backburner. Honestly, I'm just kind of over the story. Something might spark later on, but for now...meh.
Because it might be helpful...
Gretchen Fagan is an American living as a prostitute in Cairo. She's featured in Tramps and Thieves, a movie rewrite, as well as the sequel and a few other one-shots.
Works with: About everything, except Enchantress (because it's a totally different movie rewrite) and The Wasteland (because it takes place after TM, and totally conflicts with Beni dying at the end of Tramps and Thieves). Even in the stories that aren't meant to lead into Tramps and Thieves, I like to think Gretchen's still hanging out somewhere, since she's a prostitute and expendable. When OCs in other stories mention Beni visiting prostitutes, she's the one he sees.
And Love Thee After Series.
My AU Othello adaptation is now a series. But it's totally AU. Jonathan and Evelyn's dad is alive, she's married to Beni, Ardeth is a commander of some kind of Med-Jai/former Legionnaire task force, Dr. Chamberlain is the governor of Alexandria...AU, people. It's remarkably AU.
Works with: Nothing. Did you get the AU bit? It totally works with nothing.
Totally Canon, Ya'll...Series.
Stories intentionally written to be congruent with the movie, so, theoretically, can work with each other or most any other thing I write that doesn't totally decimate and reconstruct the plot of TM (I'm looking at you, Enchantress).
Works with: Everything, more or less.
Also, A Good Time could very well become its own universe. After all, Beni can only sleep so many places, with so many women hanging around.
