  1. Summary

    We are the jack-o'-lanterns in july
    Setting fire to the sky
    Here, here comes this rising tide
    So come on!

    Ace Attorney fics loosely connected to one another and set in the same particular iteration of canon, though most of them probably won't do much more than reference other fics in the series. Canon compliant except where they aren't. Probably most of these are going to have titles from song lyrics. Everyone is some variety of queer because I said so and because I, too, am incredibly gay.

  2. Summary

    A completely normal series of fic concerning a completely normal series of trials taken on by the lawyers of Fey & Wright Law Offices. There are, naturally, no extra characters who aren't supposed to be here yet, and of course there isn't any canon divergence caused by one such character and her less than comprehensive knowledge of what's supposed to happen.

    Whatever gave you that idea?

  3. Summary

    A moon, damaged in a struggle against unjust lords of excess and exploitation, vanishes from the sky over a world of humans and robots. Another moon, smashed on purpose by an unjust lord in his last departing act of contempt for his subjects, hangs still over a world of humans and faunus. Both remind their wounded worlds that there is no change too great to be possible, but that freedom often comes at a high price.

    This is a world of legends, of stories scattered through time. The truth is rarely as simple as it appears to be. But when friends become enemies and it seems all has been for nothing, remember that enemies may become friends just as easily. The greatest adversary of peace has never been those who work against it, but those who merely sleepwalk for generations with no purpose or calling. Dreamers, wake up!

    -------

    This is a RWBY AU with characters from Warframe. It follows RWBY canon through Volume 5 and has only minor divergences in Volume 6. After that, the two worlds collide in full, and there is no future written except what these people make of it.

  4. Summary

    Hallownest is dead. Perhaps that isn't such a bad thing. Perhaps, in the ashes of this kingdom, friendship and love can rise.

    Hallownest is dead, but that doesn't mean everything in it has to be too.

  5. Summary

    Rise above the universe tonight/Starchasers
    -Dragonforce, "Heroes of our Time"

    The Tenno are warriors. Heroes, mostly. Legends. They're also surprisingly quirky, once you get to know them. Or perhaps, a better word would be immature. Flash blows himself up at least once a mission. Storm hoards floofs. Moon aborts an entire mission if she gets detected once. Vesper keeps causing Infestation scares.

    Here we have stories of them and their allies. They're legends, but calling them walking disasters wouldn't be wrong. Quirky works, immature works, but perhaps an even better word would be children.

    Summary

    After a long several seconds of silence, Trucy says, "Apollo?"

    "Yeah?"

    She bites her lip for a second, then says all in a rush, "We're ten years in the past, you just got hired to work at the same law office as my dad--only he's not my dad yet, he's not even a lawyer yet--and we're pretending to be siblings."

    This sits in the space between them for a few seconds. Then Apollo lets out a long sigh and nods. "Yeah," he says. "That pretty much sums it up."

    The day after Wrocky's trial, Apollo Justice wakes up stranded ten years in the past with Trucy Wright. Somehow, things only get more complicated from there.

    Follows the events of Ace Attorney, Justice for All, and Trials and Tribulations.

    Summary

    “Seriously though, Apollo,” Mr. Wright says when it’s clear that Apollo’s listening again, and his voice is heavier now, all that humor from earlier pared off like meat from a bone. “I wanted to talk to you about your first trial.”

    And then the world ends. Goodbye, goodnight.

     

    Or: in which Phoenix and Apollo have a conversation, and reach something like a conclusion

    Summary

    Nahyuta Sahdmadhi, renowned prosecutor and long since out trans woman, has a case to make: that her fellow prosecutor, sometimes rival, and reverse-panda Simon Blackquill is also trans, just like her. The fact that Simon is also her secret crush certainly has nothing to do with it.

    Summary

    The story of an alternate universe where Apollo and Phoenix are aware they live in a simulation-- with a twist.

    “Bleak?! Of course it’s bleak! This trial’s over, and you were found guilty — there’s nothing we can do to fix it!”

    Phoenix looks away, a coy smirk resting on his lips. “If you’re the man I think you are… then it’s far from over.” 

    Apollo had no time to respond before Judge interjects with his final declaration. “Court is adjourned!” 

    And just like that, Apollo’s career was smashed to smithereens with one fell swoop of the gavel— or so he thought. 

    As the sharp crack of wood on wood rang through the courtroom, something incredibly bizarre happened. 

    Apollo is yanked outside the courtroom by some unseen force, and the heavy courtroom doors slam square in front of his face. In the blink of an eye, he is swallowed by numbing darkness. 

    An unseen woman calls out to him from within the void, a strange digital thrum distorting her every word. “Would you like to continue from your last save, Apollo Justice?”

    Summary

    Pretty much everybody knows about the time Phoenix ate decisive evidence for Dahlia Hawthorne's sake.

    ...Right?

    Apparently not Miles Edgeworth.
