And yet again this week, I have been reminded of how fabulous, funny and friendly the Phoenix Wright fandom is by the good folks at the Phoenix Wright Dressing Room, in whose chatrooms and journal I have probably laughed more in a week than I have in a year. I currently seriously have stomach muscle pain from laughing at the Dr Hotti thread yesterday, and from Young Larry's general responses to my character whenever he appears.pwdressingroom
For anyone in the fandom *not* familiar with the Phoenix Wright Dressing Room at
, it's a fandom RP that's aimed at anyone who wants to interact in character in the PW Universe (or even on the distant edges of it with AU characters and the like). You don't need to apply, you don't need to jump through hoops to join, and you don't need to worry about not being able to play your favourite character because there are multiples of just about everyone - that's kind of the point. You can bring characters you use regularly elsewhere, or just put one together for this RP only. It's a case of throw 'em all in together - any timeline, any AU - and see what happens. There must be at least a dozen various Phoenixes and Edgeworths running around, not to mention at least three Gants and half-a-dozen Emas. This has created multiple moments of sheer genius and the people who thought the place up deserve much credit for it. IN particular jessmacphisto
, who I believe was the driving force XD
I've never RPed in my life before and am unlikely to anywhere else, but I'll try anything once and I thought it would be amusing to stick my fic-canon older Edgeworth in there (with a couple of minor tweaks of backstory) and see how he fared. I never expected him to survive a day, to be honest, because I hadn't got a damned clue what i was doing, he was never conceived as an RP character and he doesn't lend himself well to crack or comedy.
I'm pretty sure a whole bunch of people knew he was mine the minute he turned up but luckily I have no shame. Surprisingly, he has now survived meetings with multiple selves, child selves, dead dads, an earthquake and Von Karma... without running screaming from the room. I doubt I'd ever be good enough or thorough enough to RP anywhere else ever again but damn, I've been having fun in there, so I wanted to give it a shout out.
In particular, my character has had/been having the best times with young_frills
(so much love
for that Nick, best one in the RP IMO even though he's technically AU), i_think_wright
(also a fantastic Nick, again AU, beautifully characterised), g_edgeworth
(My Miles lurves his big sister).
I'm pretty sure that there are a few folks playing over there that also read this journal and I'm curious how many characters the Prof has run into that are handled by people passing through here. So lets try something - if you *are* playing at the Dressing Room, post in response to this with each of your characters just so I can do a head count (I'm not going to make you fess up to your real IDs doods, you're okay - I'm more curious about the number of characters I know than I am about knowing who their muns are).
