So, funny thing is that I read this years ago, and thought it was super awesome, and I remember leaving a comment using an old account that, in hindsight, was rather shallow and not very demonstrative of how much I enjoyed this story, mostly just asking for another chapter. So I thought I'd just leave a new comment more comprehensively thanking you for writing such a wonderful story.
I admit the Aladdin series is dear to my heart, I watched it a lot as a child, and I remember scouring this site for stories exploring the idea conceived by the creators of the show that Mozenrath would turn out to be Aladdin's brother. And I remember finding this and being so incredibly pleased. Your writing style is wonderful, and I would grin with excitement each time a little shard of a memory came back to Mozenrath. Over the years, I would still think back to the beginning of the story, how much I loved the irony of Cassim unknowingly helping and being helped by his long-lost son, how Mozenrath continues to believe that he has no family but feeling an inexplicable desire to please Cassim and feeling guilty after throwing out barbed insults at Aladdin that hurt Cassim as well.
I just love the small indications we get of what Mozenrath's childhood was like, the memory of Cassim leaving, his mother falling ill, being abducted by Destane... it all made for a very memorable backstory, and your writing style for the story is easy and flows well for the reader. I just really loved seeing you explore Mozenrath being forced into something of a heroic role, only to slowly find that he's finding more peace and personal fulfillment in the palace alongside Aladdin et al. than he did plotting in Destane's palace. Just, this story is a real diamond in the rough when it comes to Aladdin stories that balance plot and character growth.
So yeah, I just wanted to say thank you so much for writing it, it's given me fond memories and rekindles my nostalgia for the movies/show from time to time, and you just really did a great job of expanding on a small nugget of trivia given by the writers (including one of my favourite tropes, 'long-lost family') and turning it into a kind of tearjerking story. Have a great day/night!

Well this is really sad
For the last chapter I ever get to read of this story is A cliffhanger
And right when the plot was getting really good
| RavensStag chapter 15 . 11/20/2015
I'm really loving all the inner turmoil you are developing especially in this chapter
| RavensStag chapter 9 . 11/20/2015
I really enjoy the character interaction a lot!
| RavensStag chapter 7 . 11/20/2015
This was a fun chapter to read
But thank goodness it's not the last because cliffhangers are just horrible to be lasting to read always

I can't wait to see where you take the plot!

Oh my God :O I love this story so much, it is so original and well written and in charácter, and the charácter development is completely credible! not to mention, it is unique in many aspects, i think this is one of my fave fanfics, i just could not stop Reading, it is amazing!
i especially love how you took time to develop Mozenrath's hidden good side (for want of a better term) and slowly developed his feelings for Sadira (as i could never picture him as initially falling head over heles for someone, but this was rendered masterfully in your piece) and XERXES :3
also, the jump between flashback memories and real time is cleverly done, which at times is a very hard writing technique, especially when trying to keep the text as fluent as yours.
i cannot wait for things to get real noww that DESTANE (OMG) has revealed himself! i hope Aladdin comes to trust his brother :3 PLEEEEEASE UPDATE, YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW HOOKED I HAVE BECOME ! :D

Is Moze the adopted brother or Half-Brother of Aladdin? They do not look anything alike. Mozenrath Looks a little like a Persian.
I hope you find some time to continue, it would be a pity to drop such a promising Story.
