I'm a 25-year-old with an English degree, a husband, and two adorable short people who are kind enough to nap on the same schedule and let me write.
My real life is pretty quiet ans low-key. In fiction, I love messy drama, tense relationships and general craziness. Dialogue is my favorite. I was a theater minor, and I love writing the kind of conversations that would be fun to act on stage/screen.
1925. The Mummy. I love few things more than stories that center around the connectedness of characters without their knowledge. I can't explain much about the plot without spoilers, so I'll just say this: all the characters of the movie are connected in ways they didn't even realize, through passionate relationships and brief encounters alike. Featuring a few OCs I'm pretty excited about. :)
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. This isn't updated too often, but it's a fun story nonetheless.
Someone Like You. The Mummy. The sequel to It Ain't Me, Babe. I never meant for there to be one, but I'm still interested in the whole world between Jemima and Daniels (with the addition of Cara Lee), and I want to write how everything could play out now that her secret's been uncovered. I also kind of like the idea of a WWII backdrop, so that's fun.
Superstition. The Mummy. This story hasn't fully materialized for me, but I've been wanting to do it FOREVER. Basically, it asks the question, "What if the curse of the Hom-Dai wasn't real?" I assume it will focus more on the competition between Evelyn and Dr. Chamberlain, as well as tensions between the Med-Jai and the explorers. More treasure-hunt, less supernatural action/adventure.
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.
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.
