Notes: Instead of National Novel Writing Month, I'll be attempting to drabble/ficlet once a day throughout the month of November. They're going to be quick, dirty, and all betaed by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ittykat and [livejournal.com profile] zenni (who is doing the same thing!). They're definitely not going to all be in my Betty/Bruce 'verse, and they're not all going to be crossovers either. The idea is just to get my lazy and work-bogged self writing again, and writing for things that aren't RP.

That said, this is an idea that's been kicking around the ol' brain for some time now. KotCS certainly wasn't my favourite Indiana Jones movie, and I still haven't seen the third Mummy movie, but I love what both franchises were before the studios and George Lucas got trigger happy. KotCS was fun, at least, once I got past the whole nuclear explosion in a fridge thing, and the movie gave us Mutt who I immediately decided needed slashing with Alex O'Connell.

This might not sound weird except for the fact that I'm generally not a fan of slash and I don't really write explicit slash. Even when I set out to write it tonight, I ended up going at it from a complete back story angle instead of jumping into it like I'd meant to. If I continue to drabble in this idea, then yes, slash is definitely coming out of it, but as they are eight and sixteen in this one, there's no slash. That would be wrong and LJ would probably snipe me. It's just the older brother admiration from Mutt that I see their relationship developing from, as seen through the eyes of Harold Oxley.

The Mummy Returns takes place in 1933 and KotCS takes place in 1957. For the purposes of this fic though, I notched up the TMR to 1937, meaning Alex was born in 1929. Mutt was born nine years later in 1938.

And now I shut up and let you read :-)

That was how he came to meet the O'Connells. )
