That was wonderful! A very well-thought out case, excellently executed. Good characterization, perfect pacing... funny little details like Pearl's commentary and over-examination of the set, Charley the plant, the little references that take me back to life as a music major, cultured!Edgeworth, a believable and sympathizable client... I could go on although I fear that I am being somewhat redundant since I've been commenting as I go through.
Thank you for all the time and effort you took in creating this little aside for us to enjoy. _
I am definitely recommending this one to all of my friends.

And at last everything comes to light.
Wow. I bet you could write...an opera...based on this fic.

Well this certainly complicates things...

The Judge is as spacey as ever... hahaha
And why didn't I notice that he was calling Phoenix "Firebird" until now? Yayyyy more music jokes!
Can't get over your grasp of the game-style script. I'm practically hearing phantom nintendo beeps every time the dialogue hits a "press/present" juncture. Surreal.

Haha this universe and it's obsessions with maps...
(You have me on the trick knife. I'm intrigued.)

Ace writing of character "isms"! From the incorrigible Fey nosiness to the Edgeworth-is-uncomfortable pose. :p This is great.
| Mischief Tea chapter 2 . 5/5
I like how you seem to have good grasp of the characters' voices! I think I'm going to enjoy this.
Oooh the stage blade wasn't a stage blade...o_o propsmasteeeeeer get your butt over here...
Another thing worth noting: I like your pacing at the Detention Center. It kind of has the same flow as playing the game. "Take the case?" "I dunnooo let's press for more information first." "Take the case?" Errrr maybe nope. Aww cue NPC (Pearl) being leadingly sympathetic. Okay, clearly we're taking the case. Or else this story is going nowhere and why are you even playing. -_-
(onward to chapter 2!)

Wow, that was a brilliant fanfic! The plot was really well thought out with twists and turnabouts like with the real Ace Attorney games, and it seemed like a lot of planning was put into it! I could imagine it being made into a chapter (in the games). The OC's were very well done as well. This story is one of the best I've read in the Ace Attorney section and I would recommend to anyone who loves the original games.

This is one of the most splendid pieces of writing I have ever read. Each character was developed beautifully, and you keep in the theme of the Phoenix Wright series. This is a story that will be favorited and re-read time and time again.

I shall honor my last review to this amazing fic, by signing in to my account. :)
Each person who joins this site is a budding writer. And as budding writers, we all have brilliant ideas waiting to be shared with the rest of the world. But what separates a great writer from the rest, is how well these ideas are executed and put to life.
And in 'Turnabout Butterfly', a unique, dazzling idea was brought to life by your innate ability to write and capture the minds of your readers.
This fanfic was truly one of its kind. The plot, thrilling and exciting, blended perfectly with the game's original storyline. I can imagine playing this as a case on the actual game itself. The characters were given the right amount of depth. Only a great writer can make you loathe a character so much, or get carried away by his/her emotions. I wanted to punch Pinkerton in the beginning, and I wanted to reach in to the story to comfort Licia when she was contemplating on suicide. The story flowed so well. The events of the story fit like a jigsaw puzzle. The dynamics were great, the word choice was excellent. Indeed, though I'm not the first to say it, this is one of the best, well written fics in the PW archive.
Up to now, I honestly don't know how you pulled it off. You took on the daunting task of writing a multiple-chapter fic; and a case fic at that. Many, including me, find it hard to keep up such a high quality of work. You proved it was possible. All of the nineteen beautiful chapters you wrote kept me on the edge of my seat. You did pull it off. Excellently, at that.
It was a pleasure reading your work. This has encouraged me to continue writing; to share my story with the rest of the world.
Grizz, thank you for inspiring me!

LICIA NOOOOO! :

Amazing, well written as always.

This keeps me hanging on.
HOW EXCITING. :) Great chapter!
| WHADDAPACK chapter 11 . 7/12/2011
:O oooh. How intriguing. I like where this is headed!
Tragic love story. An exciting twist to an already thrilling story.
Oh btw, the Italian and German added a nice touch. ))
| WHADDAPACK chapter 10 . 7/12/2011
Once again, amazing two chapters. Blown away, as always. ;)
'Heavy silence filled the air. They was alone in the Department of Vital Statistics.'
...was this an error? They was alone? Sorry, I know I sound OC. )) But isn't it 'were'?
Ah who cares about that. :) Still amazing as always. I'm on the edge of my seat!

Oh wow. I'm lovin' it!
Its all really well written. Everything seems to fall in place. The mood, the tone, the words you use, are all simply outstanding. :( I so hope I can write at least near your ability.
I don't understand why this only has 14 reviews. : I mean seriously, this deserves more attention. So expect me to flood it, mm? Hahaha kidding.
