thinking Once Again about an ace attorney taz balance au:
nick as taako. he’s nicer than the og flip wizard, sure, but they’re both stubborn, creative, and petty little bitches when they wanna be. they both contain multitudes. (and prior to the adventure, nick used to run a law firm in the town of glamour springs with a man named kristoph gavin. he doesn’t talk about glamour springs anymore)
gumshoe as magnus. rustic hospitality and a heart of gold? check. dumb as a sack of rocks? double check <3 I would have maggey as julia, but i have another role in mind for her, so we’ll see.
maya as merle. okay, hear me out. maya as merle with x-treme teen magatama she uses to cast zone of truth. maya as merle, a devotee of the god of life, misty. maya as merle, a scared teen with too much on her plate who eventually dips and leaves her cousin behind because she just can’t take it. maya as merle, because she chooses joy.
edgeworth as kravitz. this one is just obvious. also fancy boys squad.
there’s a woman in nick’s umbrella. her name is mia, and she’s been as good as dead for a long, long time.
the trio are warned to avoid masked phantoms. eventually, they run across a lich who calls himself godot, and claims to have crawled up from the depths of hell to warn them of the hunger of the world. something about him seems strangely familiar.
working for the bureau of balance isn’t easy, especially when your boss is a hardass like lana skye. under the surface, though, she’s a lot nicer than she appears. and under THAT surface, she’s hiding something.
lana’s assistant only says his title, so that’s what people call him. “judge!” he says. “judge, judge!”
in a far off section of the felicity wilds, there’s a place called hazakura. it can give you whatever you desire — if you can beat some challenges. twins preside over it, identical in all but their hair. they seem sweet. they seem kind. they seem helpful. funny, how people can seem.
there’s a goddess weaving a tapestry. she’s not very good at weaving. she’s not very good at most things. but maggey tries, and when she sees seven threads she knows they’re going to be amazing.
there is a shadow creeping, looming, lurking in us all. her voice booms to the masses and when her words do not sway them, her whip certainly does. franziska von karma is being eaten alive by her own twisted perseverance, her own unhinged determination. she is hungry. she is hungry. she is almost here. (and god, does she miss her only friend)
trucy wright is a magician, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t solve crime in her off hours. she’s not the world’s greatest detective for nothing, you know.
anyways taz balance au please god someone talk to me about this I’m in love with the concept
