A new fanfic [04 Mar 2015|11:56pm]

Hello all,

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/3472985/chapters/7623728

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.

An Aladdin Fanfic mystery! [02 Nov 2013|05:37pm]

[ mood | Hopeful ]

Hey everyone! I hope you're all doing well. There's one more fanfic I'm trying to find. I've looked, but all I found was a fanfic similarly titled, but it wasn't the one I was looking for. I think it was called Don't Leave me. It's about Jasmine becoming ill or something and Aladdin having to find a cure. And before anyone asks, it's not The Life of Mine for Yours. I love that story and its sequel! Nor is it Don't Leave me this way, which is a totally different storyline altogether. Another piece of the story I remember is Aladdin and Jasmine falling asleep together on Jasmine's balcony, Aladdin in Jasmine's arms after a long few days of fighting evil. Rasoul comes in the next morning, sees them and jumps to the wrong conclusion! Let's just say I was with Jas when she gave him her killer look and wanted to strangle him. If anyone can help find this story, I'd really appreciate it.

Aladdin's Coming To Broadway [08 Jan 2013|09:36pm]

Found this through
d_princesses and I thought I would share.

From an anonymous source speaking to The New York Times,

The Broadway musical “Mary Poppins” will close on March 3 at the New Amsterdam Theater to make way for extensive renovations of the Disney-owned house before its expected next tenant: A musical adaptation of the company’s 1992 animated film “Aladdin,” according to two Broadway theater executives. The two executives spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss production plans that remain confidential. A Disney spokesman did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment on Monday.

Who's excited?!

Not exactly fanfic, but an Aladdin-related story [19 Jun 2012|11:20am]

[ mood | nervous ]

Hello. I'm not sure if this allowed, but I'm willing to ask and give it a try.

A few years ago, I was inspired to try and write a variant of "Aladdin" from the 1001 Arabian Nights. Additionally, Howard Ashman's cut lyrics also played a strong part in my initial drafting of the story.

In the following years since I wrote it, it has since transformed beyond Ashman's lyrics, except for the inclusion of three human friends for Aladdin and the ambition to take the spoiled-princess theme and meld it somehow with the independent-princess theme Jasmine has later.

My initial draft was written between October 2009--July 2011, clocking in at roughly 505,806 words, and four books. It is still, technically, incomplete. But due to feelings of dissatisfaction regarding the plot and some of the characters, I decided this year to begin all over again. Thus, only the first book is officially finished now. Additionally, it is about more than just Aladin; the other central plots woven within it focus on the spoiled princess, a Roman-eques chef, a Hidasta-inspired boy, and a mysterious quest on the part of the caliph across the sea's son.

That said, I think this would normally be the time when I summarize the story so you can decide if it's even worth your time. But as I've developed a distrust of summaries, I'll just offer the first 100 some words, and you can decide for yourself. For reference, this first revised story is only 111,511 words.

Three Mares and the Treasure-GardenCollapse )

All the same, I would be appreciative and grateful if anyone wanted to read it over, just for curiosity or critique. I'm open to suggestions for change (cut some things, alter things, shorten things, delete things, etc). I mostly just want as many opinions as I can get. Thank you.

An analysis of Jasmine [25 Jan 2012|05:58pm]

A friend of mine has written an awesome meta analysis on Jasmine, and since she can't use LJ I'm linking it for her so that all of you might read it. It's a really thought-provoking look at her, so I recommend that you all take a look!

Les Heroines Disney - Jasmine sketches [01 Dec 2011|03:44pm]

I had scanned these once before, but my scanner wasn't the best, and I thought I'd scan them again :-)  I'd like to request a gif of Jasmine in the red outfit scene, if that's okay :) Enjoy!

She's got these eyes...and just...her hair...and her smile!Collapse )

Accident at California Aladdin Musical - No One Hurt [26 Sep 2011|02:58pm]

[ mood | shocked ]

Magic Carpet Malfunctions During California Adventure's 'Aladdin' Show
Source - KTLA News
7:54 a.m. PDT, September 26, 2011

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KTLA) -- Cast members of Disney's "Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular" show at California Adventure had quite a scare Sunday after the magic carpet malfunctioned.

Parkgoers quickly took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to spread the news.

Actors playing Aladdin and Jasmine, equipped with harnesses, were riding over the audience during the 4:45 p.m. show Sunday when the mishap occurred.

According to reports, the show was halted and audience members were quickly evacuated as crew members worked to fix the carpet.

No injuries were reported.

"Long story short, at CA Adv, the Aladdin show, when they fly on the magic carpet it flipped over and they were just hanging," Twitter user hahamanda said.

"Hope Aladdin and Jasmine are okay," user SASHAshhhh tweeted. "scary stuff."

User liltorib tweeted "I hope they get down soon."

"During today's 4:50pm performance of Aladdin at Disney California Adventure, there was a malfunction on the flying carpet, on which two performers were riding," Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown said.

"As is our safety practice, both performers were harnessed and they were uninjured."

Linda Larkin at D23 Expo [19 Aug 2011|08:38pm]

[ mood | I want to hug her ]

“Each Disney princess is a timeless reminder of courage, hope and the power of true love.” - Linda Larkin: DISNEY LEGEND, BITCHES

+ 18 pictures, she's so cute I can'tCollapse )

They need to go ahead and give Scott that award now. They got Jasmine and Genie. Come on, Disney. Let's get it together for the star of the movie.

...you know, just give it to Gilbert and Jonathan and Frank, too. They're all iconic, as well.

EDIT: Now with MOAR pictures.

EDIT: ...I'm just gonna keep updating this post with pictures as I find them.

EDIT: LMFAO just kidding about that updating thing as there's too many pictures to do that with. I'll add interesting things over the next 24-hours instead.

1. Now with bonus Lea Salonga with Aladdin Prince Ali, who was also honored today!

2. Now with bonus stage set-up!

3. Now with Linda Larkin's Acceptance Speech at 17:50 and Lea Salonga's after that:

"as thrilling as a magic carpet ride through the cave of wonders must have been for the bold and determined Jasmine" ...there's so much wrong about that sentence. Who wrote that for that guy?

KOT Gif Spam [13 Aug 2011|02:21pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

As some of you may know, today is the 15th anniversary of the release of Aladdin and the King of Thieves

Being the nerd that I am, I felt the need to celebrate this somehow.  Heck, since my username is about Sa'luk, it felt like a life requirement.  So I decided to make .gifs.

Lots and lots of .gifs.   Over 2300 of them.

Some of them are incredibly random and ridiculous, but most of them are straight and normal and "awww, yay KOT!"ish.  Many also reflect that fact that I'm a Forty Thieves and random character lover. :D 

They Finally Got Married!(15 years ago...)

This album has pretty much the entire film in animated gif form.  There's not a sorting system in place for them yet, because I wanted to have them online and done by today (started the project about 10 days ago), but the film is in order.  I plan to tag them all at some point soon, to make it easier to find specific character gifs and the like.  There are 118 pages of them... it'll take me a while, but I'll get it done.

Clearly, I have no life.


Two behind the cutCollapse )

Oh, and because I'm insane, have 92 gifs of the KOT cast, from the featurette on the most recent DVD. These gifs are tagged, since there weren't as many of them:

You Don't Have to Shave, and You Don't Have to Look Good


Two behind the cutCollapse )

Feel free to use them as you please, edit them, whatever.  All I ask is that you don't hotlink directly from the album, because I don't know how well my bandwidth will hold up.  Just save them to your own space and use as you wish.

[ mood | I do not even ]

The only one needing to madly smash away at the keyboard it probably just me though.

Thank gods (Keane and Menken, yes?) I have low and not high blood pressure because I'd be in serious danger right now.

Backstage photos [30 Jul 2011|07:48pm]

Some backstage photos with Genie, Aladdin, Jasmine, Sultan and Jafar via Don Darryl Rivera's photo blog. Their costumes are seriously freaking gorgeous, it should be illegal.

You have no idea how much I want to swoosh Sultan's capeCollapse )
You can check out all of Don's day here with a couple more behind the scenes photos. They all look like such a happy family :)

Also, the show ends this weekend (*crying*) and then who knows what'll happen from here. It's all up to Disney and the theater at that point. WRITE THOSE LETTERS, GUYS.
