    Summary

    It was quite distressing, Pearl thought. For years previously, she had been quite fixated on the idea of her cousin and Mr. Nick living happily ever after. Even after she had accepted that this would never happen, she was always somewhat enamored of the idea that one of them would someday be caught up in a whirlwind romance, passionate and adventurous.

     

    So she was rather surprised to find herself immensely enjoying the steady, familiar relationship she saw between a defense attorney and a prosecutor. It wasn't loud or flashy or wild, but calm and reliable and quiet. Rather than a blazing fire that consumed everything, theirs was an affection like a candle flame, bringing forth light and warmth.

    Well, except for when they were in court. Then they were rather more like two overzealous flamethrowers.

    An excitable group of girls (and a reluctant Apollo) team up to make Phoenix and Miles realize they're crazy about each other. But are such measures really necessary?

    Canon universe.

    Summary

    “The first time that Miles has an earthquake induced panic attack in front of Phoenix Wright, he's in the detention center, and being accused of murder.

    The next time that Miles has an earthquake induced panic attack is also in front of Phoenix Wright. He's convinced that the universe is out to get him.

    And just the mere thought of being so willingly vulnerable with Phoenix is enough to make his knees weak, even in spite of recent events. It's different, to choose vulnerability, rather than to be cracked open. And it’s different when it’s Phoenix. For whatever reason, for maybe a million reasons that Miles can’t bear to admit to himself, everything is different when it’s Phoenix.”

    ~~~~~~

    In which Miles gets the support he so desperately needs, and maybe a little more.

    Summary

    In retrospect he wasn’t sure how he had missed it.

    It was written in every flight ticket across the Atlantic and perfect fit of every tailored suit. In every invitation that he carved out time to accept. In shoulders pressed together, arms looped around each other and hands comfortingly held under the table.

    Maybe it had just gotten lost. In translations and in phone calls between couch cushions.

    Maybe he was just an idiot.

    Summary

    “Yeah… I’ll see you in court, Mr. Edgeworth,” Phoenix says, lifting his chin up. He meets Miles’ gaze and feels the beginning of a familiar smile pulling at his lips. He slowly steps forward, only stopping when he meets resistance in the form of Miles’ shoes. “And… I’ll see you in court, Mr. Wright.”

    Miles mirrors his smile, standing equal and beautiful before him at the top of the steps that Phoenix has forever waited for him on. “And I’ll see you in court, Mr. Edgeworth.”

    **

    (An analysis of Miles and Phoenix’s changing relationship over time — the trials they withstand, the importance of loyalty and truth, and how it feels to love and be loved in return, equally and wholeheartedly. Spans from Christmas 2001 to post-AA4.)
