    Summary

    Some scenes from an alternate version of Disney's Aladdin.

    What if people were good at wishing? The Genie's rules have holes you could drive a herd of camels through, but they don't have to. Aladdin and Jafar's wishes are shallow and limited, and lack the foresight that really effective wishing entails, but wouldn't a battle between effective wishers be much more interesting? And while we're at it, why does Jasmine have so little agency and basically act as a prize to be won in a battle between two men when literally the entire point of her narrative is that she's not that?

    Not exactly a complete fanfic, but enough of one that if you've seen the movie you can probably fill in the gaps yourself.

    Contains normative advice on the use and binding of Genies.

    Like Twisted, this is a rational take on Aladdin; unlike Twisted, Jafar is still the villain and the story is short and fast. Stull, it's really enjoyable.

    The plot gets less interesting at the end, but the exploration of how to make wishes is cool.
