Okay, here's the deal: I've written English lyrics for the song 'The Truth Reborn', from the Phoenix Wright musical of the same name. For reference, here's the original song in Japanese: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXJZJc57aq0

I'm also in the process of writing all of the musical's songs in English.

For anyone who doesn't know, the Takarazuka Revue is an all-female musical theatre troupe, so male characters are played by women. The actresses who play the male characters are called otokoyaku, and are trained to act like men and sing in a lower register.

I already have a couple of instrumentalists working on the transcription and the instrumental, but I still need some more musicians to play some real instruments, and female ensemble singers (of all voice types).

There are also a few solo roles still open for the other songs in the musical, if we get to record them.

Roles already cast:


Roles still open:

Female Reporter
Male Reporter
Governor Miller (speaking role only)

You can hear me singing some of my English versions of Japanese songs on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/helenvondrama/videos

Well, my LJ's fixed now (woo!), so here are the first six chapters of my new fic (there will be eleven chapters plus an epilogue in total). Inspired by To Kill A Mockingbird and experiences from my own childhood, it features Phoenix, Miles, and Larry pre-DL-6, and is written from Phoenix's perspective (hence the American spelling, despite my usual staunch adherence to my native British spelling. Gotta be in character, ya know). I hope that you enjoy!

Chapter One ~ Class Trial
Chapter Two ~ Valentine's Day
Chapter Three ~ When Something Smells...
Chapter Four ~ Cooties
Chapter Five ~ One Thousand Paper Cranes
Chapter Six ~ Treehouse Trial

So, three years ago, I had the idea to write an Ace Attorney version of Charles Dickens' classic tale, 'A Christmas Carol'. I proceeded to write a little, then procrastinate on it for the next two years. And then, last Christmas, somebody else had the same idea and posted their version on Court Records, which made me think that I shouldn't finish mine. A Google search last week revealed that a few people had had the same idea, with one even way back in 2008. Then, I thought, "Why can't I still do it?", so I challenged myself to write it before the 170th anniversary today. And I had a blast while doing it. So, without further ado, here it is.

Title: An Ace Attorney Christmas Carol
Rating: PG/K+ (for thematic elements and one use of mild language)
Spoilers: General for GS1-4
Total Word Count: 13,279
Status: Complete
Summary: A gyakufied pastiche of Charles Dickens' classic, 'A Christmas Carol'. Set post-AJ.

Stave 1: Von Karma's Ghost
Stave 2: The First of the Three Spirits
Stave 3: The Second of the Three Spirits
Stave 4: The Last of the Spirits
Stave 5: The End of It

Merry Ficmas!

I'm not sure if this would contain spoilers or not, so I'm gonna put my question under a cut just in case!

Hello, fandom. So a long time ago, I made a Phoenix/Miles reclist, but this time, I decided to update it because a lot of links were broken, and I wanted it more organized. The fics aren’t exactly new (most of them are actually old so if you’d like to add new ones, those would be very welcome!).

If you would care, I’d appreciate it if you maybe shared the link to others? Thanks!

Hey guys,

The fandom has been pretty quiet lately, but hopefully that'll change when GS5 and PLvsAA come out :) It also doesn't help that a lot of the fandom seems to have moved over to Tumblr. I still love LJ and will keep posting the new chapters of Of Fake Fairytales and Faux Amour on my journal while Lyrical posts them on FF.net, but it's been increasingly difficult lately to keep people up to date.

This is why we decided to make a Tumblr to post updates and other stuff related to the story. We won't be posting the actual chapters there, but we'll keep you informed about chapter progress and post links every time the story is updated.

Feel free to follow us and ask any questions :)

This was originally written for the Phoenix Wright kink meme about a year ago.  The prompter wanted a story about Phoenix and Miles dealing
with Valentine's Day as children.  Since it's about that time of year again, I thought I'd share this with the comm.

Title: Special Valentines
Pairing: Miles Edgeworth x Phoenix Wright, in that childhood best friend/crush kind of way.
Rating: G
Spoilers/Warnings: No spoilers, warning for copious amounts of fluff
Word Count: ~3400
Summary:  Nine-year-old Phoenix just wants to feel special for Valentine's Day. His classmate Miles hates the silly holiday, but wants his friend to be happy. Kid-fluff!
