A PLAYABLE DEMO! And the merch looks cute XD
Coming soon to an eBay store near you either as a set or individually! Unfortunately at outrageous delivery charges. Maybe next month when I am done overhauling our household linen cupboard and if I have some cash left.
I gather these were vending machine prizes before they started hitting Yahoo Japan.
I am laughing so hard even as I am sending my proxy bidders into action. Between this and the teacups I feel that my frippery desires will be satisfied for months to come.
Not the FIRST fic I have written in a while, but the first one that makes sense as a standalone save for one about nightmares that I need to revisit. I entirely blameprinceoffools for giving me this plotbunny but she has also acted as my beta, so I am obliged to forgive her.
Anyway. This is mere speculation about some aspects of Phoenix's life between GS3 and GS4. It may or may not be to your tastes but it fits my view of the character.
Title: Ace of Hearts
Pairing: Phoenix Wright with various women
Rating: 15/R for themes
Warnings: Spoilers for Phoenix's general situation and lifestyle during game. Moderate sexual language and moderate descriptions of heterosexual sex.
Word Count: 899
...afterward she had drawn an Ace of Hearts on his chest with her blood-red lipstick...
We met in China Town, of course - all agents should make sure that at some point in their career they take the opportunity for a moody shot of them leaning against a Chinese arch, meaningfully smoking a cigarette).
After exchanging the secret password (Question: Naru? Answer: Mitsu!) we repaired to the nearby premises of a world-reknowned purveyor of beverages. There, we found a table where we could observe the door, and proceeded to exchange dubiously legal foreign documents across the table whilst sipping fine coffee from the depths of the Brazilian rainforests.
I'm trying to make it sound more dramatic, but the truth is, I met up with Maz and we spent all afternoon being complete and utter fangirls - talking PW, comparing writing geekery, giggling at norty doujins and drinking coffee. It was fab! I had a great time, and I hope we can do it again one day XD
Unfortunately, Maz, I realised when I got home that I forgot to give you the present I brought for you as a thank you for being a great and patient beta. I am made of phail now that I am old and grey, and one giggling fit just blanks my mind. Heh.
I expect we entertained the waiter a good deal XD
I laughed, anyways XD
Thank you to "rareromance" on eBay for making me giggle over breakfast. I'm sure my Edgeworth is blushing, somewhere, over his morning pot of organic assam.

Just looking at the amount of chat that's gone on in this journal for the last week or so, and the direction it's taken - discussion of writing, characters, motivation, etc. I'm wondering if a messageboard for PW fanfic writers wouldn't maybe be helpful?
Somewhere where writers could compare interpretetations of stuff, ask questions about canon and fanon etc. and generally fangirl away to their hearts desire without some pre-teen coming along and saying EW! YUK OMFG! I DON'T LKKE YOUR OTP YOU R SICK type of shite. Court Records hasd gone crazy since T&T came out and I can barely have a sensible conversation at all on there (I don't really try any more).
*I* personally find conversation with other creative people makes me creative and for me, that's why this Meme has been such a huge inspiration to write. I know that not having people handy to bounce ideas off has slowed me down on my WIP amazingly (although that should now be resolved YAY!! XD)
I dunno. Not sure what I'm trying to say here, or ask, even. Not sure if it would fly. But wondering if anyone else thinks that there may be - maybe not a *need* for it as such, but, you know, at least a thought that *yeah, that might be fun/useful/cool*. It would be for writers/artists as opposed to just people who want to talk about the game. I guess I'm wondering if it might breed more GoodFic, provide somewhere for writers to develop, and just shoot the shit. We have a small fandom and I'm all for anything that would generate more fic and art.
I'm getting a real community feel from the Kink Meme and wish that could keep going after it's done.
I don't just mean for P/E fannits either although obv. there are a lot of us :) And by God we like to talk about lawyercest :)
Pairing/Characters: Miles Edgeworth/Phoenix Wright
Word Count: 400 words exactly
Warning: Mild Spoilers for GS4
As an antidote to the lawyer fluff picture here's a bit of lawyer angst written for the gyakuten100short fiction weekly challenge. This was written for the "Sacrifice" challenge. Very wangsty, and you can hear the breaking hearts of a thousand fangirls in the background *snort*. Takes place 7 years before Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney, 3 months after Phoenix Wright: Trials and Tribulations and is an attempt to deal with an issue in the new canon. I haven't played GS4 so only very basic and already "out there" info is in here ie. Phoenix's situation and a couple of localised character names and there's no direct spoilers for T&T or the other games. No smut, chaps. Del, you'll probably hate it :)
Both stories involve Miles Edgeworth and Phoenix Wright, childhood friends estranged for 15 years and now sometime enemies, sometime rivals, sometime colleagues. Obviously characters etc. belong to Capcom.
Title: Insomnia - for the prosecution!
Warnings: Some angst involved (no shit, Edgeworth is in it). No spoilers. Non sexual Teh Gay.
Title: Let It Snow - for the defence!
Warnings: None. No spoilers. All ages.
I know some folks write 80,000 word epics without missing a beat but hot damn I'm not one of 'em.
Having a character exist without interactions with other familiar characters is also tricky as trying to keep "in character" becomes weird.
I think a beta reader from the fandom is going to have to be found. Not that I don't have helpful friends (damn a lot of that advice people gave me about hotels and stuff has been fabulous) but character stuff is so damn specific.
