I'm new to this community, and I thought I would share a fanfic I'm working on. I'd love to know what people think; I'm looking for constructive criticism, and I don't even mind flames - those sound fun. :)
The story is called "A Tale of Two Sorcerors - Part I: The Coup". I expect the whole of "A Tale of Two Sorcerors" will be novel-length. So far, I've got eight chapters up. Here's the link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/347298
Here's the description:
40 years before the events of "Aladdin", the mediocre son of a celebrated general joins forces with two scheming ambassadors and the young sorceror Destane to overthrow Sultan Talal Sayegh of Agrabah. By doing so, they set in motion a chain of events whose effects will be felt decades later.
This is a story of two powerful families - the Halabi and the Anvari - and the changes they wrought on Agrabah, long before a streetrat rubbed a magic lamp and won the heart of the princess. This is the full story of Jafar, and a great deal about Destane's life (pre-Mozenrath) as well. This is a story about magic, sorcery, self-determination, the life of the mind, and one character's struggle with loneliness and the question of whether or not romantic love really matters.
