(singing quietly) Oh, I come from a land,
From a far away place
Where the caravan camels roam…
Where they cut off your ear
If they don't like your face;
It's barbaric, but hey, it's home!
(singing quietly) When the wind's from the east,
And the sun's from the west,
And the sand in the glass is right…
Come on down, stop on by,
Hop a carpet and fly
To another Egyptian Night…
Like Egyptian days…
More often than not
Are hotter than hot
In a lot of good ways…
Yami: (chasing Bakura, past Kitty and Yugi) I'm going to kill you, Tomb Robber!
Bakura: You're never gonna catch me, Pharaoh!
Ryou: (running behind them) Knock it off, you're acting like idiots!
Kitty: (vein popping in her temple) SHUT UP!
Kitty: We're trying to introduce my next fic here.
Yugi: So you guys can chill out or get off the set, you're getting sand all over Kitty's floor.
Bakura: You built a set full of sand in the middle of your room? What the hell are you doing this time, Kitty?
Ryou: (flicks the lights on) Let me guess…another shonen-ai fic?
Kitty: CORRECT-A-MUNDO, RYOU-KUN! My final shonen-ai fic.
Ryou: (frowns) Hmm…a parody of "Arabian Nights"…a desert as the scenery…I wonder what this could be a parody of.
Yami: Uh…the Prince of Egypt? (grins hopefully)
Bakura: (sweatdrop) Self-centered git…
Kitty: I would, but I thought you had enough fun in Tenshi of Games, Yami-kun. No…it's Aladdin.
Ryou: As I suspected. And what's the pairing? Let's see…Yami/Yugi…Seto/Joey…what are we missing here on the supposed "Yami-Hikari" list?
Bakura: (anxiously) Uh…Marik/Malik?
Kitty: (slaps the Tomb Robber) I'M NEVER , EVER WRITING THAT! Kara–kun would kill me, and besides, I HATE MALIK!
Yugi: No…it's you and your Hikari, Bakura.
Ryou: "As I suspected," the sequel. And as my Yami's a thief, I can guess what role he'll be playing in this…
Yami: That cute little furry monkey?
Bakura: THAT'S IT! (jumps on Yami and starts beating him up)
Kitty: (fuming) BAKURA, YOU GET OFF YAMI-KUN RIGHT NOW, OR ELSE I'LL NEVER LET YOU SLEEP WITH LINA AGAIN!
Bakura: (stops and glares at Kitty) I hate you. (jumps off the bleeding and bruised Yami)
Ryou: So Bakura's Aladdin…and I'm…oh no, please don't tell me I'm the girl.
Kitty: You're not; you're Prince Ryou of Agrabah!…who happens to like guys…oh c'mon Ryou, you know you fit the part well!
Ryou: Translation; I act like a girl.
Kitty: Well, that too…but that's not why I chose you for the role, honest!
Yugi: Don't worry about it, Ryou…at least you aren't actually a girl…you're just in the role that was filledby a girl. I was in the role of Christine, remember? That wasn't so bad.
Ryou: But anyone could take being in Phantom of the Opera!
Kitty: Yeah, that's true…but Aladdin is the coolest ever! The Genie is awesomeness.
Bakura: Riiiiight…and who, pre tell, is playing the Genie?
Kitty: (sweatdrop) That's a surprise!
Bakura: Translation; it's one of your bishies or your friends.
Kitty: Yeah…BUT YOU DON'T KNOW WHICH ONE, DO YOU?
Yugi: I'm just here for the story and the popcorn. (a bucket of popcorn appears in his lap)
Bakura: So it's Yami, Noa or Amelda…and as Noa was the Wizard of Oz and Kaiba has forbade you from making Amelda a main char-
Kitty: (growls) Kaiba is pure evil for not letting me do anything with Amelda-chan! But I'll let you ponder with the parts later… Right now, we have to finish this prologue and get to the story.
Yami: STORY TIME! (sits next to Kitty attentively) What's the story, Tory?
Kitty (a.k.a. Tory): (sweatdrop) I never should've let you hang out with Kacey.
Yami: (pouts like a little kid) C'mon…tell the story.
Kitty: Alright…the story centers around this. (pulls out a lamp)
Ryou: An old oil lamp?
Kitty: (in a fake Arabian accent) Do not be fooled by its commonplace appearance. Like so many things, it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.
Yugi: Okay…so the oil inside is the focus of a story about a stupid president who went to a useless war.
Kitty: (shakes her head) This is no ordinary lamp! It once changed the course of a young man's life…a young man who, like this lamp, is more than what he seems…a diamond in the rough, you could say.
Bakura: (smirks) I like this story already; hurry up before I lose my interest.
Kitty: Stop the commentary, I'm getting to it. (pause) It begins on a dark night…where a dark man waits…with a dark purpose…
Yugi: Ooh, creepy…
