| Calvinball chapter 1 . 8/1
A lovely read for any fan of Ace Attorney who enjoyed Vera Misham's story and character and wanted to see where she went after the trial. This oneshot takes itself seriously, and is mostly a drama. There are moments of levity in between moments of severity, though, and this gives all the more somber points much more impact. The story is ultimately very uplifting, and it's an excellent example of how to do Vera Misham right. Vera is a very difficult character to capture; I should know, I tried and failed. All in all, a oneshot I am glad to have read and one that I find myself rereading again and again.

What a beautifully written story! Vera's gradual acclimation and the Wright family's comforting support through it all is incredibly touching. This was a wonderful story, so thanks for writing it :D

This was such a wonderful story! You portrayed Vera and her social anxiety with such sincerity, sensitivity and honesty; I could so easily identify with her emotions and what she was going through. Everyone was perfectly in-character and I loved the strength of the relationships they all developed with Vera; I like to think that they stayed good friends after the events of the game. The best part of it, for me, was how Vera didn't just instantly find confidence, how it was a struggle for her to get to know how to function in day-to-day life, and how patient and gentle the others were with her. As the title implies, it's a slow progress, not a change that can happen overnight. This is so perfect, especially for real-life people who have problems like Vera's. Bravo!

I really enjoyed this.
I had found this through TVtropes, and though I'd give it a shot, though I had never read Phoenix Wright Fan-Fiction before. From what I can remember of it, you did well with the characters.
I picked this as my first story to favorite.

Oh man, so good. I was worried it would be shippy in the end, and lose the personal growth in favor of the romantic, but you didn't. In fact, there are so many ship teases, you can pretty much go anywhere. Apollo obviously like girls, but this piece is free enough that you can take his actions as that of overprotective brother or as that of a guy interested in Vera.
I love how seriously you took Larry, I think that should happen more.
Also, you manage to interest the reader without using dialogue, which is amazing.
I am adopting this as canon and there's nothing you can do about it.

This is adorable, wonderful and well-written. I even registered mostly because I wanted to leave a review. Thank you for writing this!

Simply beautiful. :)
I love how you put so many relationships into the story, even though it's truly about Vera and her observations. It kinda feels like there's something here for everybody. Nothing's over- or under- done, it all balances out. :)

Oh my gosh words cannot describe how beautiful and complex this story truly is. It is beautiful, and I swear I almost cried from just the tenderness when Vera mentions her own magic. Truly an amazing job, and I think this is possibly one of the greatest fics I have ever read.

This one-shot is a gem. Honestly, one of my favorite fanfictions to date. You captured Vera so well and I really love the way you showed her character evolution. Vera is a character not many people pick to write about and I am glad you did. You really did her justice. (Your writing of the other characters was also fabulous)

There are so many, many things that I love about this story, but I'll limit myself to Very getting onto the stage to be Trucy's assistant.

I know this isn't exactly a recent story, but I still wanted to leave a review.
Just wow, good story. Impressive storytelling with showing how such a reclusive character as Vera slowly comes out of her shell, adding miniscule expansions to her zone of comfort until she's beginning to adapt to social situations beyond her comfort zone and just live with it.
Nice characterizations all around. Also, a bit impressive with how you managed to write this without directly including dialogue. It just seems fitting with how the character Vera probably sees the world. Though she's not talkative or very outgoing, Vera still manages to capture the details around her (when she's not in panic mode), so good job on bringing that over into your story from the game.
This chapter, as it were, is definitely a happy addition to the story of Vera's life that the game provided, which is good for her.
So from the jokes to the drama to the panic attacks and to even the little details of how a young woman who seems so lost in life has to learn how to live, this story covers so much with great details. Both heartwarming and slightly heart-tugging with the references to the official history Vera has from the game and exactly what path her life traveled that caused her to stay such a recluse for so long.
At least, or at the most, or just as a good/nice finisher, there's a hopeful point at the end showing that this shrinking violet has finally started to bloom and will have a chance to live and grow better than ever before.
So wrapping up, great one shot. Good to great details. Good and consistent characterizations. And ultimately, good character growth (with Vera receiving the most growth as a character in this story making her the most dynamic character in this one-shot).
So good job.
