Sister Bikini died!? How is Iris taking this? Is she okay?
I’m pretty sure I’ll be fine. Just so long as no one makes me have to perform any bowing Khurainese style.
(Or bow in any form for an entire day for that matter.)

My… It sounds like you’ve learned a lot from this situation already. I’m glad to hear that it’s become more of an educational experience for you than a scary one.
I wouldn’t worry about your breeches, either… It happens to the best of us.
You’re a defense attorney now!? That’s awesome! You’re gonna show those prosecutors whose boss, I just know it!
Oh, right…and thanks for writing to me, too! It’s been a long time since we last saw each other, hasn’t it? A lot’s happened for both me and Nick, but we can catch up on all that whenever you come by for the channeling.
Oh, and…sorry to hear about your dad. He was a great person, wasn’t he? It’s not every dad who would build a village and populate it with hypnotized “characters” just to save his daughter, after all.
Anyway, we’ll talk about it some more later. I can’t wait to see you and your shiny new attorney’s badge! I don’t know what they look like in England, but I bet it looks incredible on you!
If you need any help learning how to present it to people, I know a guy.
That… doesn’t tell me anything. In fact, I’ve looked it up and this Los Angeles doesn’t exist.
Is this one of those instances that the mods mentioned about not existing for another two centuries? That actually would explain a lot.

You said it, not me. Teaching boys to not cry has no relation to girls crying or not. What the hell?
(Why not label everything “sexist” for existing, because that seems to be the fad nowadays.)

I never once said he was gay? I only said he wasn’t attracted to women. In fact, I’m more incline to believe he isn’t attracted to men either.
(Since when did “isn’t attracted to women” suddenly became another word for “he must be gay.” In that case, I must be bisexual, because I became a lawyer to meet Edgeworth before running across a burning bridge to save Maya.)

Personally, I think I have burnt out of poker playing. I’ve already played enough games with Mr. Wright to develop wrinkles.

Dear Mr. Sholmes,
I can think of one inconvenience at the current moment.
(And he’s ringing in my ears right now.)

I’d be more concerned about my own health right now if I were you, wiseguy.
Run, Forrest, Run!
Dear Phoenix Wright,
The coffee here is light, lukewarm, and sweet, but things could be worse. I always did enjoy a change of pace.
Your proposal strikes me as one stemming from guilt rather than pity, but I don’t suppose I’d have much to lose if I accepted. Taking handouts from former opponents goes against my rules, but like I said, a little change of pace never hurts.
Try not to look like a fool if you can avoid it.
Much as I’d love to say yes, I don’t see him changing his tune in a hurry. He might have a better chance if someone snuck the right book into his library, but I won’t hold my breath. Minds like his close a lot easier than they open.
…Let’s talk about something else, ja?
Dear Prison Warden,
You don’t say?
Not to sound ungrateful, but I’ve yet to betray my first love, Godot Blend #102. Is there any chance of me getting my hands on a coffee blender and some beans? Even the cheap kind will do.
Trust me when I say you’ll thank me for it.
What’s it to you, mate?
- Matt Engarde
I won’t go into detail, but I will say that I didn’t use a forged card. Apollo presented it and it was at that moment that I took responsibility for its existence. Had it been declared forged, then I would be the one to take the blame, not Apollo. The circumstances also seemingly matched that of what happened when I was disbarred… right down to Kristoph seemingly being there and somehow is never questioned, even despite being the one other person to have ever declared it being forgery.
I’ll leave you with that, but I will say that I have never believed in the philosophy “the ends justify the means.”

Um… Chocolate Fountain? There are water fountains I’ve seen, but chocolate ones, I’m sure, would require a constant amount of heat that Mr. Sholmes would not be able to afford. Also, I’m pretty sure you can only swim outside. I mean, we don’t even have indoor plumbing here.
(I’d play along with this one, but I doubt a normal person would believe those things were around during the days of Queen Victoria.)
- Ryunosuke Naruhodo
Dear Cathy Conleche,
Oh my. How funny.
- Satoru Hosonaga
Hey, that’s not a bad idea!
Though, I’ll have to run it through Daddy, now that he’s working again.
- Trucy Wright
No sense in blaming yourself for what happened, ja? If being a prosecutor has taught me anything, it’s that trouble strikes when and where you least expect it.
The Gavinners are no more, but I could never turn down a request from the Siren herself. Feel free to visit anytime, and we’ll see what sort of lovely music we can make together.
Figuratively speaking, of course.
P. S. Didn’t she, though? She may even have something to fall back on if her legal career goes astray.
Please do not misunderstand my sadness – while I certainly feel remorse for allowing my sister’s dreadful deeds to continue, I do not feel as though I am beyond redemption. Forgiveness is available to all who repent of their sins, regardless of their nature or number, and I have already begun my long trek toward the Holy Mother’s forgiveness, as well as making amends for those I have wronged.
Rather than brood over my past mistakes, I intend to use them to become stronger and wiser, in much the same manner as Chief Prosecutor Edgeworth, as well as my own son and daughter. Any souls I may end up saving along the way will serve to bring me that much more strength. Thank you for reminding of this amazing process known as sanctification. Hm hm…

Dear Ms. Wright,
Oh… Oh, thank heavens… Please try not to worry me so!
I suppose I could have my DNA checked against Larry’s if you wish. I’m fairly sure we’re not related, but I know it would put my heart at ease to know for certain.
Dear Kumar Timalsina,
Sorry for stealing your thunder, first of all. I’ll let you have dibs next time there’s an evil dictator in town. Ha ha!
I’m glad to hear you’ve been able to reopen your law firm again. I trust that we’ll both be working toward the same goal of rebuilding Khura’ins legal system, but if we ever end up facing up against each other, just be warned that I plan on giving it all I’ve got. I’d recommend buying some earplugs, just in case.
Oh, and thanks for setting up shop so close to my new firm! It’ll be nice being able to see what the competition’s up to.
In more ways than you know, in fact…
Dear Prosecutor Steele,
Oh yeah, no doubt about that. Heck, even Apollo gets flack for using his bracelet that he uses to sense nervous habits from other people. Don’t even get me started on Spirit Channeling.
Though, I think there might’ve been a misunderstanding. I don’t use the Mood Matrix and use other people’s moods as testimony or to convict them. In fact, the witnesses I have therapy sessions never convict them at all. Sometimes they’re used on my clients. My therapy sessions are used to help calm the witness down, if they can’t testify due to trauma. Once they’ve calmed down, they go back to testifying again. Anything that happens during therapy session isn’t used or treated as testimony or evidence. The only time I ever used the Mood Matrix as evidence was to prove a witness wasn’t feeling any emotions. Even then, it was also backed up by other evidence and I depended on my mom’s research to count it as evidence or else it’d have been considered conjecture.
It’s true that I do intend on having the Mood Matrix in court to be more of a common practice and revolutionize how we conduct trials. I also am aware that creating change won’t happen or be accepted easily. Even the things like Forensics Science and women were once denied in a court of law two centuries ago. My boss once told me about how his ancestor fought for the acceptance of Forensics Science as evidence and to allow his female assistant to assist him in court during the Meiji Era of Japan. He did this in Japan’s Supreme Court of Justice with no jury and sometimes the gallery was exempt as a closed trial. Now, Japan considers Forensics Science and women working in law as common practice. If people like him didn’t fight so hard, it wouldn’t be common today and we wouldn’t be working as lawyers. Change can’t happen, if you never get the word out or have your voice heard by at least one other person other than yourself. Even if there’s no jury, there is a gallery watching and, if it’s a closed trial, there will be officials in power watching like the bailiff, interpreter, Judge and you.
If I do face you in court, I’ll give you everything I’ve got. Though, I hope any wins or losses doesn’t change your valor. Even though I wish to revolutionize the way we do things in court, that doesn’t mean I want to throw away the things of old. It’s the old things that got me where I am.
Old values shouldn’t be thrown away.
