AN: I do not own Phoenix Wright, the Ace Attorney series, or anything related to it. I also don't own Scooby Doo, which is happily referenced here.

Mastermind

No one could believe it, particularly not the attornies responsible for uncovering the conspiracy. Now the group, representing both past and present, watched in shock.

"I don't believe it…" Apollo murmured, unconsciously voicing the thoughts of everyone present. "All this time…the mastermind of all those crimes…it was you?" The Judge?"

Now with snazzy matching bracelets to compliment his black robes, the Judge glared. "Yes, it was me! And I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for you pesky lawyers," he glanced at one of the assembled people, "and that scruffy dog of yours!"

Gumshoe whimpered.


PS. Blame for this goes to Kat, to whom Gumshoe was described as "He's like a puppy. I just want to hug him. And then spray him with a hose. And add soap. And rinse." Poor Gumshoe. Thanks for reading my little drabble attack! Much love!
