Curious to know if interested [16 Apr 2013|07:41am]

silvercalovere
I was rewatchin' the show on YouTube and, much as I love it, some of the sillier parts and the uses of the Egyptian myths and gods had me seriously cringin'. After readin' some of the comments on how abruptly the show ended and the dumped second season, I started thinkin', "Well, what if we did a fan fiction version of a reboot that incorporates aspects of the original show with the plot points that would have been in the second season, and add in a few extras to keep things interestin'?"

As the titled stated, I'm curious to know if anyone would be interested in somethin' like that. At this point in time it's nothin' more than an idea;  it's goin' to be a while before I have the spare time to be doin' necessary research, fabricatin' new plot/s and non-Mary/Gary Stu characters, figure out plausible backgrounds for existin' characters, etc. This would be my first major project, but I'd rather not do somethin' if it's just goin' to sit around stagnantly on the web. Also, if there's anyone interested in helpin' out with it if I should go ahead, be it a beta reader, co-writer, someone to bounce ideas around with and so on.

Let me know what you think, guys. Worth it or toss it?

Hi I'm old! [12 Nov 2012|05:09pm]

[ mood | stressed ]

Well I'm old to this fandom anyway. I was 11 when I first watched Mummies Alive and I'm 26 now, man where did all the time go? Anyway I've recently got back into this show after watching all the episodes again on Youtube and I can't tell you how disappointed I am that this show never got a second season.

Watching some of the later episodes as an adult I was surprised at how much of its darker subtext it was beginning to explore. Ja-kal dealing with his family being torn apart by his duty in the episodes with his brother. Nefer-tina trying to deal with the isolation of their duties in 'True Believer'. Adding to that an old interview I read where the creators wanted to have Amanda discover Presley's secret in the second season and have Presley turn 13, making him a man in the eyes of the mummies and not a boy anymore seemed like that would have been a chance for a lot of great character growth for everybody, and it's shame that never happened.

Oh well I guess there's always fanfic and I'll probably try my hand at writing some. Especially because I have something new that I never had watching this show as a kid: I ship a pairing in this fandom now. Rath/Nefer-tina FTW!

Fic: Alone, G [13 Sep 2012|06:23am]

laughtersmelody
[ mood | cheerful ]

Title: Alone
Rating: G
Genre: Angst

Summary: Maybe some women would have envied her position had they known, but pretending to be a man had its own price, and sometimes, Nefer-Tina felt the cost.

A/N: This fic is something of a prequel to my other Mummies Alive fic, "Requiem," but you don't have to read that one to make sense of this one. :) For those who might not remember, Kenna, who is mentioned in the fic, is the friend of Nefer-Tina's that appeared in the episode "Eye of the Beholder." Kenna did not know that Nefer-Tina was a woman. In "Eye of the Beholder," Chontra pretended to be Kenna to drive Nefer-Tina from the Sphinx.

As always, I thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for His incredible mercy and grace.

Fic: Requiem, PG-13 [04 Sep 2012|05:25am]

laughtersmelody
[ mood | cheerful ]

Title: Requiem
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Angst

Summary: Death didn't come immediately for all of the Guardians. One of them remained for a short while...and she had questions to answer. Pre-series, set after Scarab's betrayal. Amenhotep POV. Cannon character death.

A/N: I was 10 when Mummies Alive originally aired, and at 25, I'm still a fan. :) This fic has been floating around on my computer for quite a while, and I was finally inspired to finish it. It's a more serious take on the show, intended to fill in some of the gaps we were left with in the flashbacks of Scarab's betrayal. It focuses on Nefer-Tina. Obviously, the embalmers *had* to notice that she wasn't a man, lol. But she was still buried as a Guardian, apparently with the Pharaoh's blessing. This is my take on just how that happened.

Feeling nostalgic again... [07 Feb 2012|12:22am]

[ mood | nostalgic ]

It's been a while since anyone posted here!! I've been feeling nostalgic lately for Mummies Alive again and I'm STILL disappointed that there hasn't been an official release of all the episodes. Are they ever gonna give us our fix?? I don't even care if I'm now 27 years old and that the show first aired 15 years ago, I still want my damn mummies.

It's also funny to see my posts under my old LJ name mbt. I can't believe how long I've been a fan and a member of this community. Time goes too quickly! Is there still anybody in this community? Does anyone still write fanfiction or create fanart? I've never been much of a writer myself, but I enjoyed keeping up with the rest of the fandom. However, it's been a while since I've snooped around the web to look for any updates.

Anyway, just needed to get some of my feelings out. I miss this show so damn much! It really had so much potential if they had decided to continue, but sadly it might have become bogged down by more corny jokes and pop culture. Oh, well! I guess it's up to the remaining fans to keep on creating...

Another new member XD [28 Jan 2010|11:23pm]

Hi everyone :D I'm another new member to this comm - checked it several days ago and came back to find recent posts, which is very cool. I randomly remembered how much I adored this show as a kid and looked it up on YouTube. It has stunned me that this show is still as much fun as it was back then, as well as being funny and interesting. Not many 90s cartoons sustained the test of time, but MA has for me.

I've run out of fic to read on FF.Net, and with Geocities closed a lot of the old fansites are gone. Can anyone rec another site to find fic?

:bounces: I'm so pleased this comm - and the fandom - isn't entirely dead.

Hey all!
I just joined the group. I am a huge Anubis Fan. I also love the show.  Been a while since I seen it, but just popped in the DVD I own. So I searched the internet and here I am. I am an artist and costume designer and builder and I have drawn pics and built an Anubis costume in the past. Looking forward to chatting with some of you.

A Scarab story (SHOCKER)! [02 May 2007|02:02am]

citizenjess
[ mood | anxious ]

Okay so, I know I just posted a really long rambling thing that I seriously doubt anyone has even read, not the least because this community hasn't had any activity for over a year, but I wrote a Scarab story, which also happens to be my first - and possibly only - MA! 'fic, and I thought I'd share in case there were any stragglers in these parts. (It'll also be cross-posted to FF.Net, of course.)

Summary: ‘He hadn’t meant for it to happen exactly as it did – killing Prince Rapses, that is’. Rated PG-13 for violence. This is based on the episode, “Sleepwalk like an Egyptian” – my favorite bits of the series by and large are the flashbacks to the characters’ lives in Ancient Egypt.

Complications


P.S.: The theme song for this series is so. Cool. Seriously. I want it for my iPod. :D

Kicking Tut and taking names. [01 May 2007|08:04pm]

citizenjess
[ mood | amused ]

I'm new to this community and a newbie/latecomer to MA! in general, but appreciative of its existance nonetheless. I actually started watching the show because an online friend began writing a Mummies Alive! and Mighty Max crossover, and my love for the latter compelled me to check out the former. I'm about ten episodes in.

Anyway, I've noticed quite a few really great motifs that can be expounded on by fandom, and have recently even read a surprisingly good Rath/Scarab story over at FF.Net. I think I was mainly surprised that the pairing WORKED - I'm not a stranger to slash by a long, long shot, but oftentimes, characters get paired more because of the author's fancy for them rather than any canon consistency or chemistry. However, I've seen the episode with the homeless people where Rath and Scarab make very similar comments about the nature of vagrants in Ancient Egypt compared to the modern world, as well as the one where Scarab calls someone to his aid to help rid him of a cold, and Rath approaches him to assist the mummies in bringing them down. Possibly it was my brain working overtime, but it seemed like there was a lot of unspoken words between them.

I think one of my favorite characters is Scarab, which is unsurprising, really - I usually go for the villains. I find him fascinating, and I generally like the show, even though it tends to lapse into self-parody a little too much to take it seriously. (I mean. Scarab trying to exert his revenge through fast food? Wearing bunny slippers? Yeeeah.) I'm not saying the light moments aren't hitting their intended audience - they ARE funny! - but it's sort of a guilty pleasure watching them more than anything; like, I try to explain their existance away from the main canon, or something. If that makes sense.

One thing I HAVE noticed is the distinct lack of Presley/Rapses-related anything. I even found, ah, a Scarab action figure on eBay a while ago - impulse buying is bad, mmkay - and on the back, there are advertisements for figures of the mummies and basically everybody BUT Presley. It just seems a little odd to me, given that he's technically the main character. I think he's a cute kid, personally - definitely bratty at times, and a little prissy, but he has a good heart, and I don't roll my eyes when he's on-screen. I look forward to seeing how/if he grows at all by the series' end. Am I totally alone in this? From what I've seen, he's pretty underrepresented in canon, too, compared to pontification on things like Nefertina's gender-bending, Scarab, etc. Where is the love?

Um, and now that I've finished rambling messily and like an overeager kid on Christmas, I shall take my leave. :D

Scarab Icons! [04 May 2006|06:00pm]

Ahh, I did some new screencapping on my MA DVD! Here's some Scarab icons!


(I'm considering making another one of this with something like "OH RA" or "O GAWDZ". Teehee, 4chan <3)




If you end up using one please credit wintertokyo and tell me if you're going to use it. :D I like to see where stuff I make ends up. XD

I have other icons I made for my RP journal of Rath and Kahti, I might post those here if anyone is interested in just basic Rath and Kahti icons. Other than that I may make some more icons in the future if I come across any amusing stills on my DVD or if I manage to rip some animated icons. XD

Most Annoying [06 Apr 2006|08:15am]

wintertokyo
[ mood | awake ]

Who's your most annoying representation of an Egyptian God in Mummies Alive?

I'd have to say the one I hate the most is Nuhn! BAH. So annoying! With all the cheesey jokes, his horrible character design and that annoying voice/laugh. -____- I think it's a far cry from what the god representation of "Nuhn" would have been to the Egyptians. And wasn't Nuhn just water anyway? I thought Hapi was the God of the Nile and would have been a better choice to make this guy rather than Nuhn. =P At least then they would be playing a huge annoying play on words with his name "Hapi" and his over giddy personality. <.<;


Next would have to be Geb. Ohhh the way they protray him as a dimwitter ninny makes me want to punch a wench.

Hey guys. :D How are ya'll?


Since MA has been on the TV over here I've been drawing a lot of MA related drawings, mostly being my OC. I just finished a pixel doll of her this morning and I thought you guys might be interested in seeing her. :) So here I would like to introduce you to Sitkakra, the chosen one and Priestess of Kakra (Kakra is also one of my OCs, she's a Goddess). :D

So I realised I had a program on my PC that lets me watch DVDs and actually cap them so I capped a coupla scenes off my MA DVD. I wish now that I had spent more time capping (especially capping Anubis >.<; ) because when I tried again yesterday it wouldn't work right. XD Bah.


Anyway so I made a couple of Rath icons from the two screengrabs I took of him from my DVD.

Who wants to read something CRAZY and SCARY? :D


*Cue unnecessarily long explination*

So like~ I was up waving good bye to my mom and grandma as they went to work this morning. I started randomly thinking about how about 9 years ago I would usually be up around this time getting ready to leave for school and waiting for the school bus. And then I thought about how at this time I'd usually be watching Mummies Alive back then while waiting and I'd never, ever get to see the end of the episode because the school bus would arrive within the last 10 minutes. (Boy I hated that). So then I started feeling more nostalgic and I thought about watching my Mummies Alive DVD (a gift a friend sent me in the mail out of the blue one day 8D) at 7:30 am for "old times sake". Well I decided against it because I didn't want to watch TV and instead went back to my room to place Puzzlepirates (woot.).


SO. About an hour later I got up off my rear because I thought I was missing a show I wanted to watch (Boy isn't that scarily Ironic? My psychic powers strike AGAIN.I wondered where they were.. ) so I went into the living room. I checked the station I wanted but the show I thought I was missing wasn't on. So then I had a weird feeling to check the TVguide channel and LO AND BEHOLD. I saw Mummies Alive was on tv at that very moment. I think I had a fucking cow, you guys! :D So I zoomed over and it was the last 10 minutes. I thought about taping it but I was in such a shock that I couldn't really do anything other than run in a circle going "OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGRath<3OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG" DDDDDDDDDD: THIS IS JUST THE BEST.



SO! For me here in Houston, Texas Mummies Alive! comes on at 8:30AM on channel UPN (which is channel 4 here). I dunno if that's the same anywhere else in the country but check your local listings! I'm pretty sure UPN is a national channel? And didn't Mummies Alice start on UPN? Or am I just getting confused? (Back when I just remember MA being on Channel "9" which I remember recently being UPN before they change to our channel "4" ^^;;;;).


And Oh man you guys, Mummies Alive is like 9 years old. 9. :( I feel so old. It's been almost a DECADE. :(



I wish that MA would get repopular now and be brought back from the ..er..dead...xD



Now I'm going to kill someone if they suddenly take the show off the air now that I've just found it again........ *shakes fist*

[ mood | chipper ]

Yeeeah, sure. I did a search for MA out of a whim to float back into the fandom for a little while and thought "Okay, if it has posts within the last, oh, year or so, I shall join". So here I am. Really, I'm shocked that there's any activity in the entire fandom. People are still submitting fanfiction to sites, this place is still alive, RPs are still going. O_o Pretty cool.

I might post fics here if I feel so inclined. Be warned that I have what could be called a unique way of writing some characters. I also have a very hard time writing honest-to-god serious fanfiction for the show. So far, at least. If I ever have to write JaKal, who is forever and ever, the Biggest Ball of Angst Ever, that might change.

<3 to all.

I've noticed that there's a little bit of interest in starting a role-playing session on the old MA Board. If no one's started when I get in tonight, I'll get the ball rolling with a Scarab post. ^____^ I thought I'd just pop over here and leave an open invitation for anyone to join.

Da Rules (which are quite simple, really):
1) Avoid power-playing. If a character can just poof everything all better, that takes a lot of fun out of the game, and deprives characters of opportunities to grow and develop.

2) Don't play another person's character without permission. Describing what one character does to another is ok, for instance a person playing Scarab might do something like, "Scarab grabbed Ja-Kal and hurled him into the nearest wall." But if that same person is not playing Ja-Kal, then they can't fall up with, "Ja-Kal twirled himself around in mid-air, managing to launch himself back off the wall, right for the sorceror's throat." Leave it to the other person to decide whether or not Ja-Kal crashes or executes a last-minute save.

3) Don't do anything drastic, like killing off another person's character, without first checking to see if they're cool with it.

4) And last, but most important, be courteous to one another.

Yep, I think that covers everything. So, if anyone feels like starting before I get in from work tonight, go right ahead!
