Reviews for Rising With the Sun
MetaYoz50K chapter 20 . 11/6/2013
I'm so glad I found this gem in the Phoenix Wright section. Most of the oneshot collections I have read in any fandom are rather disappointing, partly because every ficlet seems to revolve around some sort of event that can barely fill a couple hundred words while discussing it, partly because I've seen them used over and over again , such as crossdressing, a sudden kiss, HOMG-CHARACTER-SHOWCASES-SPECIAL-TALENT-NOT-SHOWN- IN-CANON, etc., without much deviation from other fics, yet the author flaunts the idea like they expect the 'novelty' to carry their story along. Not to say they shouldn't write those things - I enjoy well-written fanfiction about Klavier's tight leather pants and Apollo in a maid uniform as the next person - but in any story, even a drabble, there should be more to it than a quirky topic that piques a person's interest.

This is where you come in, author. Sure, your story wasn't perfect; there were a couple of grammarical issues near the beginning of Rising With the Sun, and your writing was a little choppy. However, it was clear that you were imroving as the story progressed! At the end, you gained prose that delivered the story tastefully without looking awkward and clunky.
I also want to give you kudos for writing to flesh out Apollo's character. (How did you know gangster!Apollo was my most favourite headcanon of all time?) Tis difficult to write about someone when they are scheduled to have character development soon in the future. (It feels weird to see all of your thinking grinded into dust as canon clears up any doubt on a subject.) You wrote in a way where there was an overarching theme throughtout the ficlet series, which is loads better to read that a bunch of disjointed drabbles hat had no qualms in confusing the reader. I know it's been around ten months since RWtS was completed, but I hope you take this review to heart./cavity-inducing rant end!

tl;dr, thanks for writing this drabble series. Much heartfelt gratitude for sharing your take on Polly!

Sad, but amazing.

APOLLO!

Well darn! I was kinda hoping for a ghost... But Trucy trying to learn how to play the piano like her "daddy" is kind of endearing too! Very nice idea!

Run Apollo! Run from the encore of the Wright's piano playing horror!

i got goosebumps. Apollo is so scary, but i really want to see him act like that in the actual game. just imagine how the witnesses would be...
Apollo: I think we should discuss this further...
Witness: No, no, no, really, we don't have to...
Apollo: *smile*
Witness: *shiver* W-what is it do you want to ask me, Sir?

Very touching, and it has many details. This story is very deep, and causes one to think. Some may cry, but at the end one will always smile at the fond memories this story brings back up. I'd rate this 5 stars.

Aw, Ares isn't allowed to bite Klavier :c /whacked with a guitar/
a-lonesome-human chapter 11 . 12/20/2012
heehee loved this chapter! but i generally do wish some things that you wrote actually happened in the game. you brought such great unseen personality of Apollo's, and merry Christmas!

"Oooh an update!" *happily read while noms on bread*

Why isn't this amazing story got more reviews :

I love the interaction between Apollo and Ares 3 and I can imagine Klavier being bitten by him lololol
ElinaLin chapter 8 . 11/20/2012
this chapter is cool... i never thought of Apollo having that side of him. quite surprising, but understandable anyway. this chapter (for me) is a plus, because we can see another side of Polly. great going!
DarkinUnderground chapter 7 . 11/2/2012
Pepper cookies? Wow...just...wow... Phoenix's tastebuds have finally been destroyed beyond repair. Did Maya have anything to do with it or is it all Trucy?

Cudos to Apollo for taking everything in stride!
DarkinUnderground chapter 6 . 11/2/2012
This was very nice! I especially like the focus of the family bond between Phoenix, Trucy and Apollo. You don't usually find that many family stories with these three, it's usually focused on the romantic aspect of it and that gets old, fast. So this was a great find! There need to be more family fics with these three out there!

I'm looking forward to seeing more! And I'm also curious to see how Apollo reacts to waking up between Phoenix and Trucy on the couch bed! I'm guessing there's going to be a lot of panicking on Apollo's part...
