evelyn o'connell

things I love from The Mummy and The Mummy Returns
  • Evelyn 
  • the motif of the O'Connell family accidentally knocking over things and reigning destruction in a falling domino fashion 
  • the Mummy being scared of the cat 
  • Evelyn Carnahan 
  • “I am a… librarian!" 
  • bad cgi scorpion centaur Dwayne Johnson 
  •  "what harm ever came from…” lots. lots of harm 
  • ominous wind 
  • the fact that Rick and Evelyn’s son is named Alex, probably after the Library of Alexandria (which Evie secretly hopes is still out there waiting to be discovered) 
  • Evie 
  • the camels 
  • the “no of course we don’t let him go” exchange 
  • Evelyn O'Connell 
  • the way Evie reads with her glasses down her nose 
  • Rachel Weisz’s character; Evelyn

For today’s quote of the day, I have chosen one of my favourite movies ever… The Mummy! This is such an amazing film, Evie is a brilliant character! You go Evie, tell em! 🙋🏻💪🏼💃🏻👏🏼

why rick and evie are perfect

evie? evy? find some continuity, mummy franchise

in the mummy:

  • literally they begin with evie saving his life, like this ship began with girl saves boy and rick admits that’s the entire reason he goes on the adventure at all
  • lots of longing gazes
  • bANTER BANTER BANTER BANTER THE ONLY THING THAT SCARES ME MR O’CONNELL ARE YOUR MANNERS
  • the formal way they address each other, “mr o’connell” “evelyn”
  • TEAMWORK!!!!! ships that work together as a team are legit wonderful 
  • basically every little thing evie does that wouldn’t be considered “becoming” for a woman at that time, rick is very into. racing a camel? rick is down. describe mummification with gross specifics? rick is very into it.
  • and then he steals nice tools for her which is basically the most romantic thing you could give evelyn carnahan as a present
  • “i… am a librarian” rick is aroused
  • when he helps her off the ground and very gently checks to make sure she isnt hurt and basically casually holds her like wtf kind of romantic bullshit is this
  • rick loses his shit any time evie might get hurt
  • like they have to hOLD HIM BACK when she goes with imhotep
  • “if they make me a mummy you’re the first one i’m coming after”
  • THEY ALWAYS HOLD HANDS WHEN RUNNING AWAY FROM DANGER
  • their kiss has a smiley NOSE RUB like kill me i hate them
  • they cuddle on a fucking camel

in the mummy returns:

  • A MARRIED SHIP THAT HAS BEEN TOGETHER FOR TEN YEARS, HAS A CHILD, AND IS STILL COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY FULL OF LOVE AND SUPPORT
  • like these assholes have been together for a decade and still make out constantly
  • WHEN THEY DEFEAT THE MUMMIES ON THE BUS LEGIT EVIE CROOKS HER DAMN FINGER AT HIM LIKE THEY ARE SO TURNED ON BY ALMOST DYING THAT IS BASICALLY THEIR KINK
  • they compromise and still work as a team so well!! they know when to do it evie’s way and when to do it rick’s way
  • like he hands her a gun and she nods and they basically practice how to fight at home right? they have to. they choreograph this shit.
  • they still banter and tease each other and it is full of so much fucking affection, gag me now
  • THEY JUST LIKE HOLD EACH OTHER A LOT ITS LOVELY
  • i dont support evie’s temporary death but also brendan fraser is literally the only man actually acting in that scene and it hurts my heart to even consider rick living without evie like that man thinks screaming AHHH at mummies will make a difference, how would he even function
  • just like a lot of hardcore risking their lives for each other
  • “do you want to know what heaven looks like?” “nope would rather make out on this blimp pls”

those are the only two mummy movies nothing else exists sorry

I was feeling inspired for today’s quote of the day, by my best friend Jodi! We have so much love and appreciation The Mummy… “Hey Beni! Looks to me like you’re on the wrong side of the river!” … Rick O'Connell is hilarious, can just hear the way he says this line now 😂😍👏🏼🔥

I’ve been low-key obsessed with The Mummy since it first came out so with its arrival to Netflix, here are flower crowns for u and the squad

Rick: mallow; consumed by love
Evie: blue lotus; purity and eloquence, rebirth
Jonathan: poppy; wealth and success
Ardeth: gladiolus; strength of character, honor, conviction
