Author has written 53 stories for Professor Layton, Rhythm Thief, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.
Hi, I'm The Mocking J (MJ for short!).
My favourite fandoms:
*ATLA/ LoK- Fave characters: The whole Gaang (Toph especially), Bolin, Bumi, Jinorra
*Pokemon- Currently playing Pokémon X./ Fave characters: Again, way too much choice... Probably say N from the games, Clemont and Looker from the anime, and Green (boy) from the Manga.
*Hunger Games (*Le gasp.* What a surprise!)- Fave characters: Rue :'(, Cinna, Finnick, Plutarch
*Rhythm Thief- It has cutscenes. Me likie cutscenes. :D/ Fave character: Charlie
Ib/ Fave character: Garry.
But my No.1 favourite fandom happens to be:
There's nothing I love more! I adore the characters, epic storylines, music, heartwrenching cutscenes, puzzles... You name it!
Fave characters: I guess Emmy Altava is my all time favourite.. but I think I like all of them. (Except Bill Hawks. And Third Eye Jakes.)
Although Emmy is my all time favourite PL character, my preferences change depending on who I am writing/reading/watching/viewing fanart/fangirling about. So, I've decided to do a SPOTLIGHT CHARACTER PROFILE. I'll present to you which character I currently enjoy, and give reasons for why they're awesome (spoilers may be included). :D
*Spotlight PL Character(s):
ARCHIE PENDRAKE, my PL OC from the Layton Life RP and several appearances in other fics.
Is it wrong to use an OC as the spotlight character? (
So, what's there to like about MJ's run-of-the-mill OC among countless more developed characters? I'm not going to pretend 'Archibald' (lol- his full name drives him crazy) is anything special compared to the PL canon cast. But I'd like to think he isn't completely flat personality. Archie's basic backstory is that his father forced him to study archaeology when all he ever dreamed of was being an artist.
Some talents/ redeeming qualities- do I even have to say... he's good at art? Also, sympathetic towards people affected by dangerous artifacts on Layton's adventures. One example here is Abitat Echo's OC, Lisa, who he believes was corrupted by the Head of Medusa through little fault of her own. He insists others should pursue their talents despite the fact that he doesn't take his own advice.
Some flaws- Possesses a phobia of dirt/dust. Has the tendency to rant, especially about "accursed archaeology", but is usually more bark than bite. May be afraid to face his own problems. Stubborn when it comes to archaeology, refusing to even trust those working in the field. Plus, his hair is silver.
Finally, this image was created by the insanely talented SamCyberCat.
Thank you for your votes on your favourite Rhythm Thief character. In total we have 15 votes (SHUT UP THAT'S PLENTY)... The winner was Marie with 5/15 votes. I was quite surprised- not that there's anything wrong with Marie, but I thought one of the more active characters would come first. I guess Marie's cuteness, musical talents and kindness pulled her through! (No one voted for poor Inspector Vergier though. Is he really that bad? XD)
If you like Professor Layton and roleplaying then please visit my PL RP forum: Layton Life RP!
Emmy/Layton- OTP. After losing Claire, Layton deserves to be with someone who can make him smile and lighten his spirits. That person is Emmy. Screw whatever happens in PL6.
Alfendi/Lucy- Also known as Lucifendi. My other OTP. I love how Lucy accepts both parts of Alfendi.
Claire/Hershel- My heart breaks for them every single time I play Unwound Future ;_;
Luke/Arianna and Luke/Flora- Both ships are adorable. But I'm slightly more for Flora/Luke. I can just imagine him being with her in future.
Luke/Aurora- (There's a lot of Luke ships on this list isn't there?) For those unaware, Aurora (or Aria) is the living mummy girl from the sixth game. She a Luke develop a close bond that could be seen as sibling-like, friendship, or something more. I have no idea how old Aurora is.. but she looks about Flora's age, right?
Teenage Angela/teenage Layton- WHY? WHYYYYYY DO I SHIP THESE TWO? I don't understand. Angela and Randall are a perfectly adorable couple. Maybe its 'cause I can imagine Hershel having a little crush on his best friend's girlfriend. Maybe its 'cause he called her "radiant" (c'mon when have you EVER heard a teenage boy describe a girl like THAT?) Maybe its 'cause of how he comforts her on the lovely moonlit stroll to Randall's house. I almost HATE that I ship them 'cause no one else does. If someone writes me a teenage Angela/Layton fic, they will be my new favourite person.
Anton/Sophia- HOW COULD I FORGET TO INCLUDE THIS SHIP EARLIER?
Grosky/Hanna- Hanna would chase Grosky to the ends of the earth to prove her devotion to him.
Chelmey/Amelie- Despite how gruff Chelmey is, he's a real sweetheart towards wife. I enjoyed seeing them in Azran Legacy.
Onesided Rosetta/Layton- XD
Sammy/Rosetta- My new favourite crackship.

Name: Archibald "Archie" Pendrake
Home Town: London
Occupation: Aspiring artist/ Archaeology student
Appearance: Silver hair, light olive skin tone, dark eyes and fine-boned angular facial features.
Fave outfit: Black turtleneck sweater, grey jeans and black boots.
Personality: Archie appears to have a polite amiable manner to people he meets. He's quick to offer compliments and often praises others for their abilities and style, insisting that they should always pursue their talents. As an artist he is creative with a flair for painting and similar craftsmanship. At times you might find yourself falling asleep as he tends to drone on (a habit similar to his father) about fabulous art and frequently expresses his dream to become a renowned artist. He can be sappy and a bit of a pushover, as shown by his need to please his father. However, Archie can be stubborn when it comes to his detest of archaeology, to the point of distrusting archaeologists and artifacts in human hands.
Bio: During his school years, Archie's father (famous archaeologist Richard Pendrake) insisted that his son's dreams of becoming a painter were foolish ideas that would lead to a poor life with little income. The young man was unwillingly pushed into studying archaeology and more academic subjects. Archie had always hated his father's line of work. He believes that by investigating ancient ruins sites and relics, archaeologists disturb priceless treasures that should be left untouched. Artefacts have been stolen by archaeologists who take credit for finding them, when the credit should really go to their creators from years ago. Eventually Archie was forced to attend Gressenheller University where he studied archaeology under Professor Layton (this only increased his hatred of the subject).
Likes/ dislikes: Painting, drawing, studying art, observing magnificent views and landscapes, watching the sunrise, pizza/ Dislikes archaeology above all else and has a minor phobia of dirt and dust.
Ambitions: To become a famous artist.
Family: Father-- Richard Pendrake, famous archaeologist and admirer of Professor Layton. Mother-- Akemi Hirota, fashion designer. Several years after Archie was born she left Richard, claiming that he obsessed over his archaeology more than his own family.
Relation to Professor Layton: Student/ Companion
Puzzle pose: Thoughtfully-- "A puzzle isn't always what it seems first at first..."
Correct pose-- (Snaps fingers) "Marvellous! I've worked it out!"
Incorrect pose-- (Sighs) "I can't give up... Maybe I should look at this another way."
Some funs facts about Archie...
Fanart: As mentioned above, I can't draw, so here's some pictures of Archie from some very talented artists...

I'm kind of sporadic with my updating schedule for my multi-chaptered stories. Usually it depends if I'm in a good mood, or if I'm working around a writer's block. When I'm not focussing on multi-chaptered fics, I often write oneshots to focus on different characters or get my feels out :') Sometimes I'll make attempts at character development for characters that don't get enough appreciation, and other times I'll shamelessly write about my favourite characters/ pairings. Mostly you'll find Professor Layton fics, and maybe an occasional Rhythm Thief fic.
Description: A Professor Layton/ Rhythm Thief crossover. I was so psyched when they announced there was going to be a PLvPW crossover that I started to read some crossover fics. Rhythm Thief is another favourite game of mine for the 3DS which I thought had a very Layton-esque feel to it, despite it obviously being a rhythm game. It has rhythmic puzzles, cutscenes, charming characters, a heart-warming story and a gripping mystery. I began to imagine what would happen if the RT cast met the PL characters, so I wrote a oneshot that became the multi-chaptered crossover fic I'm currently writing.
Current Status: COMPLETE (Bonus Chapters may be included.)
*The Woes of Being Rosetta Stone
Current Status: Updates whenever I feel like it!
*The Layton, the Witch and the Top Hat
Description: ...The story begins with the professor's spare top hat, for without it Luke would never have found his way into Larnia, or ever heard of the Dark Witch, or ever have been followed through the wardrobe by Emmy, Clive and Flora.
Current Status: COMPLETE :D Working on a Bonus chapter.
*Randall's Road Trip
Description: A pure crack-fic about Randall touring the country with his friends in the Laytonmobile.
Current Status: COMPLETE.
*The Archeologist and the Orphan
Description: Following the death of his fiance in an explosion, a twenty- seven- year- old Professor Hershel Layton feels as if everything significant in his life has been ripped away from him. After loosing his parents during the same incident, an ten- year- old Clive is orphaned and taken into care. Both Clive and Layton are left grieving, both of them yearn for a family to call their own. What happens when the professor visits the orphanage and adopts the forlorn boy?
Current status: IT LIVES.
Future Fanfic Ideas:
*Prince Randall (Sequel to The Layton, the Witch and the Top Hat)
Description: The second story I hope to do in the Chronicals of Larnia series. Teenage Lando Ascad stars as Prince Lando in this Layton/Narnia crossover.
A hundred years have passed since the glorious reign of the great Kings and Queens of old Larnia. But now the land has been invaded by the ruthless Targents and the true Larnians lie on the the brink of extinction. Prince Lando notices the anguish created by his selfish uncle, King Bill, but he cannot save Larnia alone. He blows Queen Flora's Lost Flute, evoking four familiar British siblings to return to the kingdom...
*The Voyage of the Crown Petone
*The Archaeologist’s Nephew (Prequel to The Layton, the Witch and the Top Hat)
Description: Young Hershel Layton and his friend, Claire Foley stumble out of their own world into a magical land, meeting a Witch-- ("SORCERER!")... and this is how the adventures in Larnia began.
I have a lot of story ideas... Though, I'll probably never get around to writing them all. If you want to use any of these ideas, feel free! But you could tell me first! :)
*Professor Jean Descole and the Scientist Hershel Layton
Description: Descole and Professor Layton switch bodies after one of Descole's machines backfires. Descole threatens to harm Emmy and Luke if the professor reveals the scientist's identity. Through Layton's position as Gressenheller University, Descole sees this as a chance to uncover information about an ancient ruins site. Meanwhile, Layton looks through Descole's research hoping to find a way to switch them back. Will the two ever be the same?
*Hotel for Animals (Professor Layton adaption/ based off the plot of Hotel for Dogs.)
Description: Luke Triton returns to his hometown of Misthallery. When he visits his old companions Arianna and her brother Tony, he discovers a big secret inside their home. Barde Manor has been turned into a hotel for stray animals! Mice, cats, dogs and many more furry creatures have taken shelter at Barde Manor during the harsh Winter. Luke is able to converse with the animals and see to their needs. However, a social worker comes poking her nose around the house and Third Eye Jakes is back in town... Can the kids keep the secret or will their furry friends be cast out onto the cold streets?
Description: Rather than return to the moment of the explosion that should have ended her life, Claire awakens in the small town of Stansbury, the home of Hershel Layton's seventeen year old self. With the help of a mysterious woman called Yuming, Claire must discover why she has been sent to this time.
*Kids These Days
Description: Upon receiving an urgent letter from an old friend, Professor Luke Triton bumps into his new assistant-- Hershel Layton? The two arrive in the town of Misthallery and meet a young girl who fortells disaster... Her name is Emmy Altava.
And here's the part where I put all the extra profile stuff that drives some people nuts :D Just skip to the fic section if you don't like these bits.
