Setting Things right - Part 2B by hippo2 Setting Things right - Part 2B by hippo2

Martha follows her original plan



Martha shook her head. "You already had three wishes. You won't get any more." She blinked and disappeared.


"How's Roisin?" Amelia asked Martha, when the genie opened her eyes again.

"It's as we have expected. There's no human mind left behind." Martha said.

Amelia produced Martha's lamp. "Alright. Let's do it then. Martha I wish..."

"STOP!" yelled Saoirse. "You can't take my harp away from me."

"Don't worry. You'll keep your harp. I'll just free Roisin from her prison." Martha assured Saoirse.

"But my harp has a soul now. Don't take that way."

"Be quite or I'll let Martha lock YOU away inside that harp." Amelia never intended to do it, but Saoirse bought the bluff.

"Alright, do what you need to do." Saoirse yielded.

Now it was Amelia's turn. "Let's to it. Martha I wish that you had added a mind protection to Roisin's mind, when you turned her into a harp."
Martha blinked and granted the wish.
Again, it was Amelia's turn. "And now, I wish that you free Roisin from that harp."

Martha blinked again and the harp was engulfed by a magic glow. Slowly, the body of Roisin regained a human color, the it separated from the harp, starting with the head. Eventually, Roisin was human again and free from the harp. She took a deep breath. Then she looked at Martha with furious eyes: "You! You locked me away for three years. Do you have an idea what it's like to be trapped in a dark room for such a long time? I nearly went insane!" Then she turned to Saoirse. "And you! It wasn't enough for you to steal my position and lock me away in a bottle. You also use me as if I was nothing but a normal harp over the last three years.

Saoirse tried to ease the situation: "Listen, Roisin. I told you I was sorry, when you had been turned into a harp. It was wrong what I did to you. Can you forgive me?"

Roisin stared at Saoirse. "No! All you did was hurting me. I can never forgive you. Heed my words, Saoirse: I will get my revenge on you." Then she ran past Amelia and Martha and out of the room.

"Can't you do something with your genie powers against her?" Saoirse asked MArtha.

"Only if you wish to. But I'm sick of the feud you two have going on here. Solve that for yourself. Amelia, we go!"


Outside the room, Martha said. "Man, she's even more pissed than I had expected."

"Don't forget you locked her away for two years." Amelia replied. "But we came here to restore her original form. And so we did."

"True. But you have no idea what Roisin is capable of. Now I'm afraid she will take revenge on Saoirse and probably us too."

Amelia frowned. "I see you point. I don't want to be turned back into a mouse again." She thought of the moment, then Amelia rubbed Martha's lamp again. "Martha I wish that you grant Saoirse a magic protection from any scheme Roisin comes up with. If Roisin plots against Saoirse, her plan shall backfire on herself. I hope this will work."

Martha granted that wish. "It will work as long as Roisin won't get her hands on a genie, who's more powerful than me."

"Luckily, there's only Sami around. And we know he will enjoy twisting Roisin's wish."

"I'm not so sure if there aren't other powerful genies. But I hope for now Saoirse is safe. Thank you for making that wish, Amelia."

"You're welcome. Shall we go to find your next victim?" Amelia asked.

"Yes, we can go." Martha blinked and both women disappeared.

Hmmm, a thought occured to me: what if she had the mind protection wish put on HERSELF?

Who had put the mind protection wish on herself?

She could ask Amelia to do it I guess (wonder how she'd react to how she's been acting if her mind was protected from her genie body?)

These retro-active wishes are dangerous. Basically, it's the grandfather paradox from timetravel stories. If Amelia wishes that the mind of a petrified person had been preserved, the chance of creating a time paradox is pretty small. The only difference would be that the mind trapped inside the statue won't adapt to the statue shape. But the impact on the rest of the world would be nonexistent.

If Martha's human mind would have been preserved, that whole Martha story would have been different. She would always want to be human again. The first two stories would be pretty much the same. But since "Martha Rocks", things would be different. Unlike in the official story, Martha wouldn't see anything positive in being a genie. Worst case would be, that she wouldn't have used one of Daniel's wishes for getting him in and out of the lamp. Instead, she could have talked him into using his final wish to turn her back into a human. This worst case scenario would have the consequences, that Martha wouldn't turn Gergory into the genie Gregorios, who in turn couldn't turn the mouse into Amelia, which would prevent Amelia from making a wish to preserve Martha's mind. A classic time paradox. Basically, the complete Martha Universe would cease to exist.

Yep that's dangerous.  Hope none of the villains in your stories figure that out.

Fixing such a wish could be a good story. Well, Martha and Amelia will visit more victims soon.

Well, a side story/dream at the very most

That depends on the vote of the fans.

We already had a poll, which decided that the next victim to be visited will be Jennifer of the lava lamp. fav.me/d2kmcci

And I already opened another poll to decide who will be visited after Jennifer: hippo2.deviantart.com/journal/…
As you can see, there's also the option, that none of them deserves to be saved. If that option gets the most votes, I will end the story.
