    Summary

    Conqueror. Prince. Man. Legend.

    It s written in the dust that the man who gives victory in battle is prized beyond any other. It is whispered in the wind that there is nothing in the desert, and no man needs nothing. But for T. E. Lawrence, who is determined to conquer it, unite its wayward people, and write his own destiny, one man turns out to be everything he needs.

    Summary

    If you wish loudly enough in the desert, a djinn might give you what you want — or what you think you want. For trope bingo square “bodyswap”. Ali and Lawrence swap bodies at Damascus for one night before Lawrence leaves Arabia for good, and Lawrence feels very acutely the fact that he does not belong to the desert, no matter what he wishes.

    The romance arc of Lawrence of Arabia (and if you don't think there is a romance arc, just read some of David Lean's thoughts on the subject) told from Ali's perspective.

    Summary

    English slumped only a little on his camel, with Gasim clinging to him, half-dead. As men approached, English sat straighter, his head held higher. He did not even glance down at the water Farraj held up to him. Ali thought--he liked to think--that the man’s eyes had already found him in the approaching crowd. And that English would not have taken water from a dozen men, because he was waiting for just one to offer it.
