Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Hereafter, by Marxbros

  • Recommended by: Belphegor
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After TMR. Imhotep has raised Ancksunamun and conquered the earth. Rick, Evy, Ardeth, Jonathan, and some new characters must find each other to defeat Imhotep once more.
  • Comments: This is an epic, 37-chapter-long story that starts In Medias Res and slowly but masterfully builds up to the climax. It has the particularity of treating both "good" and "bad guys" with the same fairness, developing characters in a way that flows easily and naturally. The OCs are equally well handled, each of them brings something vital to the story. A must-read.

  • Pairing(s): Evy/Rick, Ancksunamun/Imhotep

Circumstantial Evidence, by robot iconography (formerly Eve).

  • Recommended by: Belphegor
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "She could be damnably silly at times; she dressed like a spinster and carried herself like bloody royalty; but she was my baby sister, the only one I'd ever have. I'd been through hell to get her back, and now I was going to lose her anyway."
  • Comments: Set just after the first film, from Jonathan's point of view. It's perfectly hilarious and unexpectedly poignant at times, as the author writes an excellent Jonathan voice and all three main characters are perfectly characterised.
  • Pairings: Evy/Rick.

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

The Mummy: Curse of the Seven Scorpions by Jac Danvers

  • Recommended by: Bookworm Gal

  • Synopsis: "Libby O'Connell hasn't heard from her brother in years. The word mummy meant nothing to her. But when a tiny gold scorpion is revealed to have much greater value, she is thrust back into her family's life, and the life of a man she once hated." Equal parts adventure and developing romance.
  • Pairing(s): Jon/OC

Tongue Tied by poorpiratelass

  • Synopsis: "When Rick O'Connell agrees to take the Carnahan siblings to Hamunaptra, his sister Madeline insists on coming along. There, they unleash an evil thousands of years old on the earth, and meet Med-jai warrior Ardeth Bay, who becomes a problem for Madeline, as he's very attractive, and she can't stop acting like an idiot."
  • Comments: Rick's younger sister joining the adventure has been a staple in Mummy fanfiction, but what sets this story apart is how fleshed out the character of Madeline is, and how she has her own story outside of the main movie. The author further delves into the world of the Mummy, in the sequels that are just as good as the first story. Plus, I adore her relationships with Jonathan and Ardeth. Followed by sequels Self Esteem and The Return of the Medjai, with the last one still in progress.
  • Pairing(s): Ardeth/OC, Evie/Rick
