Sisyphus Rising is a Hanson fanfic written by Aeryn (Jiangyin) as part of the Boomerang Big Bang.

The story is a Firefly and 30 Seconds To Mars crossover, wherein Taylor is transported into the future, finding himself on the spaceship piloted by brothers Jared and Shannon Leto.

Reactions and Reviews

What’s going on is largely centered around Taylor and whether or not he will be able to return to his own time. There are a few scenes that incorporate more Firefly-esque action, but the bounty hunting and galactic intrigue are only stage setting for the real story.

In that way, I think Sisyphus Rising could appeal to anyone, even those who don’t have any interest in space opera, or indeed, any knowledge at all of the source material. As a Firefly fan, I find that Aeryn has done a great job of making that canon work for her purposes, although I would like to see a story that incorporates more than one Hanson brother, just to see how the rest of them might adjust to this world.[1]
