''[[http://jeaniebottle.com/index.php I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle]]'' is a comic series by CD Rudd (also the author of ''[[SailorSun SailorSun.org]]''), in which two male friends come across an empty genie bottle. One of them (Jean, an unabashed ''Series/IDreamOfJeannie'' fanboy) opens it and is [[KarmicTransformation transformed into the bottle's new occupant]] while the other (Neil) becomes her master. As can be expected, HilarityEnsues.

Because the comic is somewhat based on the iconic [[Series/IDreamOfJeannie television series]], expect many of the same situations to apply.
----
!!This series provides examples of:
* AllMenArePerverts
* AttractiveBentGender
* AuthorAppeal - Obviously, but even more so than in the creator's [[SailorSun other]] WebComic.
* BareYourMidriff - goes in hand with:
* BedlahBabe - Jean's new look after geniefication. In [[PinkMeansFeminine pink]] too.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor - Inherent in the premise.
* BecomingTheGenie - The core premise
* BiggerOnTheInside - Jean's [[http://jeaniebottle.com/?p=176 apartment]].
* BlueAndOrangeMorality - Lord Guano's view on what constitutes proper behavior for Genies does not conform with normally accepted concepts of good and bad and is centered entirely on being properly submissive and fulfilling your master's wishes. He never punishes Jean for any of the JerkAss things she does, only for acting for her own benefit instead of her master's.
* ButtMonkey - Neil.
* TheCameo - [[Webcomic/ElGoonishShive Grace]] shows up in one strip.
** Murry and Lewy show up at the hot dog vendor
* A genie's magic is ''CastFromLifeSpan'', to an extent - they can die if they overuse their powers on a broad (read: "global") scale for too long, presumably at the behest of their master. It is heavily implied that the last known genie to suffer this fate was [[spoiler:[[UnfortunateImplications Eva Braun]].]]
* ComedicSociopathy: Jean has little regard for the consequences of her actions unless they come to harm herself. Had their situations been reversed with Neal becoming the [[GenderBender female]] genie, Jean would have been only too happy to use his wish to "do" Neal. She turned a nerd into a girl and later chose not to turn him back due to more concern over her own problems and possibly even spite. While her reason for turning a ship captain into a woman was understandable, her DisproportionateRetribution against a friend of the captain was less so. She regularly abuses people, especially [[ButtMonkey Neal]], for her own needs, without any respect at all for theirs. This trait of hers is usually PlayedForLaughs.
* DistractedByTheSexy / RagingStiffie - Neil cannot control himself when Jean presses herself against him or if she is wearing revealing outfits / bikinis.
* FailureIsTheOnlyOption - As with all comics of this type, Jean will likely never be changed back no matter what she does. Made blatantly obvious by the fact that her powers are best summed up as 'can do almost anything except turn herself into something other than a genie'.
** Well, it only makes sense that the one thing she can't wish away is the very power that allows her to grant wishes in the first place.
* FirstLawOfGenderBending: No woman has been transformed into a man so far in the comic's run
* FollowTheLeader - Jean quite often turns her best friend into a woman instead of actually doing something good with her powers. Just ''[[TheWotch where]]'' [[SarcasmMode have we seen this before]]?
* GenderBender - Jean, of course, as well as several of her victims. Also Neil sometimes, but unlike Jean, he's not locked that way forever. It is overall the [[TransformationComic main genre]] of the comic.
* GenieInABottle
* HypocriticalHumor: Jean, an (implied) male chauvinist turned into the genie of his own fantasies gets upset when Neal acts like... a male chauvinist with a genie fantasy.
* {{Jerkass}} - Lord Guano and Jean are both not very nice to each other, or to Neil. The former [[http://jeaniebottle.com/review.php?comicID=46 mistakes Neil for Jean]] and [[http://jeaniebottle.com/review.php?comicID=49 unjustly punishes him in her stead]], while the latter [[NeverMyFault blames Neil for everything that goes wrong]] and is [[http://jeaniebottle.com/review.php?comicID=53 more concerned about what will happen to herself if Lord Guano finds out he made a mistake]] than restoring her supposed best friend to normal.
** Neil has [[http://jeaniebottle.com/review.php?comicID=57 called Jean out on it though]], and literally ''ordered'' her with a list of demands to try and set things right. Whether she actually does or not is another matter though, but this is the first time since the comic began that Neil has really stood up to Jean.
** Neil himself is no saint, either. The second time Jean transforms him was because he made a tasteless "period" joke. You don't say things like to a woman, especially one that was a man. He has also said some other pretty ignorant comments. Really, sometimes Neil asks for it.
** There's also a good deal of HypocriticalHumor inherent in Jeanie's Irony Blindness, since all Neil is doing is living out Jean's own Genie Master fantasies.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold - Jean, though given his situation it's understandable that he's not taking it well. Jean may be a borderline [[TheSociopath sociopath]], but he does try to do nice things sometimes, like when he/she brought breakfast to Neil once and helped Neil turn into a man again.
* KarmaHoudini: Due to the generally high level of SitCom inspired ComedicSociopathy many of the Wacky Hijinx are driven by the actions of cheerfully idiotic side characters who are never called to account for their actions.
** Jean has transformed a lot of people, some of them permanently, and never gets called to account for it.
** Rudd also plays with this trope as Jean's initial transformation is portrayed as an LaserGuidedKarma for his own genie master fantasies, but Jean's later punishments from Lord Guano are never for actions that the audience would find objectionable
* LaserGuidedKarma: Jean fantasized about having his own Genie. He finds the whole idea much less attractive from the other side of the coin. So far ComedicSociopathy has prevented Jean from acknowledging the irony.
* LordErrorProne - Lord Guano. "Obtuse" just doesn't cover it.
* LiteralGenie - As RuleOfFunny demands.
* MagicalGirlfriend - More accurately, 'Magical Best Friend', at least for now.
* ManIFeelLikeAWoman - Averted
* MsFanservice - Jean.
** Neil has noticed that she ''[[http://jeaniebottle.com/?p=217 has boobs now]]''. [[WhatAnIdiot Way to go, Neil]]!
* NeverMyFault - When it becomes clear he's just ballsed something up, Lord Guano doesn't hesitate to [[http://jeaniebottle.com/?p=190 accuse other people]].
* NiceGuy - Neal. He may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but he's shown no indication so far that he's even considered abusing the PowerPerversionPotential inherent in being Jean's master, which Jean fears because that's exactly what Jean would have done had their situations been reversed.
* PowerPerversionPotential: implicit in the premise, but acknowledged only to the extent that Jean fears Neal will succumb to it.
* PunnyName - The names of the characters correspond to the original TV show: Jean for Jeannie, Neil for Major Nelson, Belle Lows for Dr. Bellows, and an old woman is also named Ms. Eden.
* RougeAnglesOfSatin[=/=]WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma
* RunningGag - Neil will invariably end up turned into a girl and transported to a strip club for annoying Jean in some way.
* ShipTease - Neil and Jean, [[http://jeaniebottle.com/review.php?comicID=11 from an early strip]], and after that, as the page quote shows. Expect it to intensify as time goes on, if the series keeps paralleling its namesake.
* ShoppingMontage - Belle takes Jean on [[http://jeaniebottle.com/review.php?comicID=47 one of these]].
* ThirdLawOfGenderBending - The harem outfit comes with Jean's duties, but early in the series, she spent a whole comic using her powers to experiment with female clothing (including a ''Franchise/SailorMoon''-esque magical girl, [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Rogue]] and KimPossible's cheerleader outfit) in a "G-rated" ManIFeelLikeAWoman montage.
* TransformationComic
* UndeadTaxExemption: Averted. Neil in girl form gets arrested as a suspicious person because "she" doesn't have proper identification
* WhatAnIdiot: Jean is ordered to fulfill Neal's third wish. He asks for a Sandwich. Lampshaded, by Jean, but she doesn't press him further out of fear that [[PowerPerversionPotential Neal would wish for the same thing Jean would have wished for had their positions been reversed.]]
