I just binged this entire fanfic in these past few days... This last chapter MADE ME CRY. It’s a feat to accomplish. You managed to make Maya really relatable and have more depth WHILE having her stay true to her character. And here I thought this was just going to be a really good Phoenix x Edgeworth fluff. Followed and favorited. Hopefully you get back to writing this soon!

I also want to say that its been ten years since you've ppace your fanfic on here. I have been reading it ever since it was on the Objection fanfiction site that has shut down since then. I am forever going to continue to read and reread your works.

Thank you very much for still writing . After all this time your work still brings a physical emotional response to me. This is so well written and charaterized that I still check back periodically for updates. I love how the fact that this fic is old enough to be ablw to intergrate new development from the recent games. It watms my heart to see you prepare such careful consideration of Maya and Phoenix's interactions. There is such depth to your character that matches so well that I often confuse details of this fanfic with canon. Or actually your works enhances my experience with the canon. Thank you and thank you again for contining this work

This is sooo good! Honestly, this is so well-written ughhh it's killing me! I can't believe how on-point your characterization of all the characters is (ESPECIALLY MAYA UGH YOU'VE ADDED SO MUCH DEPTH TO HER CHARACTER IT'S JUST AMAZING). THIS FIC HAS DONE THINGS TO MY HEART AND YOU ARE TO BLAME. Watching as Phoenix (and Miles!) develop is just so moving. howw can you do this to my heartt ? ?
this fic is amazing and you are an amazing writer.
nothing more to say.

Whoaa this chapter is so well-written! I usually leave a more detailed review at the end but I had to tell you how amazing this chapter is in particular! Phoenix and Edgeworth' interaction at the end is just so perfectly written ughhh I love this

the additions are so strange.. it's become like a special cut, with hidden thoughts that weren't available at the time, being revealed! I really love it. my affection for this story is pretty great... I have memories of it for so many of its updates, back to at least 2009, so for it to be updated now is truly unreal. I mean, so much will have changed for you who write it as much as for a reader. the fact that it has clearly been not just written again, but old parts have been carefully revised, never too much changing, just small additions to clarify some of the vaguer parts, must been you really care about this old thing still, which is so nice.
I've never written any kind of "review" before I imagine, even though it's so precious to me... there's just never felt like there's a need to, but I realised a real rush of affection noticing some scenes having those little changes. I think the most helpful ones were, well it's hard to compare to how it was before now, but the conversation Nick has with Iris on the phone for sure, and when he visits Edgeworth's office... I've always loved those two scenes, so for there to be extra lines created NOW after all this time, was a real shock and excitement. which might be kind of silly... but for me, this story is its own world, you know? reading it means being propped up by detailed images of Phoenix's and Edgeworth's apartments, the inside of the building where Edgeworth has his office, even the restaurants, (and honestly probably every moment) that have existed for me for like 8 years... of course they'll be different to what was intended, but that's the power of a really good story, fan or original story, that it creates a powerful world for each reader who holds it dear! so reading this story over and over is like truly visiting well-known places. as for the newer recent chapters, of course I love them. I miss the day-to-day feeling of the chapters in the past... the passing of time which has slowed down, but that shows how important the time where the recent chapters are is. but no matter what, I will support anything that happens in this story because I trust it! reading a mention of Blackquill added to the story, was, so surreal though... and Maya's huge decisions and feelings about her future training starting to be important... it's so great!
probably in 2009 or something the best part was reading about this realistic, at times pretty silly and delicate little relationship between two grown-up characters, but now, of course it's the quiet grown-up feeling to everything. now that I'm a "grown-up character" too, the realism of all the things like going to restaurants, worrying about bills, getting rid of stains on the carpet... I don't really read other fan stories anymore, so I'm not sure if it really is unusual, but the complicated, but also so simple train of Nick's life is really a joy. he's really doing his best out there... and in this story, above all, there's Maya. and Iris, and just the rest of the things that Phoenix holds important. I love Maya, so I love that she's a crucial part of the story just as she is to Nick's life. and Edgeworth becoming a part of it and stepping around it and carefully into it without breaking anything, and all the anxieties and... eeeeeeee.
I'm sure the fun of those parts has been written in detail before, so what I want to say most of all is that everything this story is, is still great, after all this time, and the quiet surprise revisions make that known most of all. if there is still more to be written, that means there's still more to be said about the Struggling world, which is exciting and lovely. what a weird and important story... there's too much to say about it! I hope this wasn't too strange to read. I will now revert back to my true form as a silent, very involved recipient of this long, old, good story. for writing it and holding it dear... thank you!

This chapter is beautifully written. The heartaches, the tenderness, the unspoken words. I'm so relieved they've finally talked this out. I love Maya and my heart hurts when I feel her loneliness and self doubt. Thank you for letting Phoenix realize everything in time. 3

i first started reading this fic when i was in middle school and was pleasantly surprised when i got an email that it updated. this was a beautiful chapter that said some things i really needed to hear. i love your portrayal of nick and maya's found family relationship. thank you so much!
| LeonaWriter chapter 8 . 9/22/2016
I have to admit, I was getting really worried about how Maya - and so many other people - were just left behind when Phoenix started paying so much attention to Edgeworth, but this helped things a lot, as well as confirming my suspicions that Edgeworth himself was more aware of how awkward things were between Phoenix and Maya than Phoenix was. I love Maya a lot, and I'm hoping he does tell her soon - and that Pearls doesn't blow up /too/ badly over it!

Thank you so so much for this update! When I got the notification in my inbox I actually cried because I was so happy that this had a new chapter. Over the course of the last few years since the last update I've read this over and over, and it's absolutely one of my favorite Ace Attorney fics.
I loved this chapter and the way that you've written Pearl. Your characterization for everyone is amazing, and I especially love your inner dialogue for Phoenix. The writing style is really incredible and the way everyone's emotions are portrayed is so vivid.
I'm also glad to see that this is now up on AO3! I've definitely gravitated over there the past few years so it'll be nice reading it there.
Thanks so much again for the update!
