A/N:

This has been laying around on my computer for a while (it's been up on my gaia journal, pocky-sama) and when I saw xo'lady post one I thought, "Cool!! We can do that??" So here it is. Be sure to check hers out too!

I OWN NOTHING. Ace attorney belongs to the strikebenevolent god/strike game company CAPCOM.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE OBSESSED WITH PHOENIX WRIGHT WHEN YOU:

(Warning: mild spoilers, all games)

-Can spell its Japanese name (Gyakuten Saiban).

-Know that Phoenix's Japanese name is Naruhodo Ryuiichi, Maya's is Mayoi Ayasato, and Edgeworth's is Mitsurugi Reiji. (You get bonus points for any others.)

-Have actually told someone that your favorite band is the Gavinners.

-Have a potted plant in your room called "Charley".

-Also have a potted cactus called "Billy."

-Refer to your car as your steel steed.

-Your ringtone is the Steel Samurai theme song.

-Believe that the jury has no say in the verdict, even if they collectively chant "GUILTY! GUILTY! GUILTY!" (See case 2-4.)

-Learn the Blue Badger dance.

-Think old ladies should wear space suits.

-Use "OBJECTION!" as part of your everyday vocabulary.

-Suddenly can't help watching shows like "Boston Legal" and "Law and Order".

-Think it's normal for a 24-year-old man to have gray hair.

-Believe that prosecutors have the free time to become rock stars.

-Have a favorite pairing(s), which you defend viciously like the rabid fangirl/boy that you are.

-Have actually drawn out a diagram of a murder to explain it to a friend.

-Don't bowl, you play "Knock down Mystic Ami's Urn".

-Drink coffee. Lots and lots and lots of coffee, and all of it black.

-Find yourself calling your friends "pal" or "kitten".

-Have looked for Luminol on ebay.

-You watch the kid's show "Go, Diego, Go!" just to laugh hysterically as you imagine the real Diego swinging on vines.

-Say, "Witness, you've had a long day. Shut your pie-hole." (a la Manfred Von Karma) instead of "Shut up."

-Spend at least an hour spiking your hair every morning.

-Actually looked up acolyte in the dictionary.

-Couldn't stop laughing for half an hour after picturing Edgeworth carrying that enormous stuffed bear.

-Are nervous in elevators.

-Think cravats are either a) handsome (if you like Edgeworth); or b) hilarious (if you dislike Edgeworth).

-Really, really wish he was real, just so you could write PINK in huge letters on the back of his suit jacket. C'mon. It's totally pink.

-Actually responded out loud when he said, "…D-do I really inspire this sort of frothing desire from the female masses?!" in T&T.

-Your favorite comeback to the elderly's complaints about your clothing is, "You really should come with a supply of cheese to match your vintage whine!" ...or, at least you think it.

-Think of Kristoph saying "Owning the same nail polish does not a murderer make" every time you paint your nails. Then you start to worry that you will be accused of murder because you, by chance, wore the same nail polish as the murderer. You buy a bottle of nail polish remover and are paranoid for days.

-Have a mild (yet healthy) fear of being murdered by an acrobat at the circus. However, you are no longer afraid of clowns and address them all as "Moe".

-Eat instant noodles whenever you can out of sympathy for Gumshoe.

-Make paper dolls of all the characters and re-enact certain scenes.

-Are afraid of swimming. Hey, you never know where Damon Gant will appear.

-Begin to feel a lot warmer toward hobos, especially ones wearing blue beanies.

-When someone finds you out, you just snap- bite your hat like Ini, shatter your glasses like Adrian or best of all slam your head Von Karma-style.

-When one of your friends looks older because she got contacts and cut her hair over summer, your first thought is, "I wonder who she's channeling?"
