[Backdated to around midnight. Action]

 


[It was after midnight. Edgeworth was clad in a pair of deep-red pajamas, placidly enjoying a cup of tea in his kitchen, alternating between reading a chapter of the Steel Samurai manga, playing a digital game of chess, and idly researching comparisons between alternative medical treatments and conventional methods of medical practice of certain maladies on his tablet, when the Valentine's Day decor suddenly exploded into being all at once like some Harry Potter shit. Since he has headphones on, listening to 
Symphony No. 8 in B minor 'Unvollendete' by Schubert,  he doesn't notice the sudden change in decor until he looks up moments later.

He sighs. Another one of the castle's shenanigans, no doubt. He takes a few moments to check the Paradisa feed and notes that everyone else seemed to have the same 'problem,' so he realizes that it's probably unnecessary to make a castle-wide post inquiring about it.

He rises from the stool that he was sitting on, and walks about, surveying the place. As he descends the stairs towards his bedroom, his head turned upwards, studying the gaudy bedizenment of every nook and cranny of the place, he is certainly not prepared for the other part of the castle's surprise... 

He is, needless to say, very startled to find Phoenix Wright standing near the foot of his bed. His body tenses in fright upon seeing the unexpected visitor in his room, nearing dropping the tablet in hand. He begins to exhibit an array of speechless gestures of aggravation, including face!palming, clenching his fist and such, before he yells:]






...What the hell are you doing here?!


[/Edit: Room now looks something like this: Bed, Ceiling, Kitchen, and various elements from these rooms.  And when the lights are off, the walls of the room glows like this, this, and this. Others: CouchToilet, Misc1, Misc2, Misc3.]

takethat: Phoenix scratching his left ear with his forefinger and glancing off to the side. (umm....)

...you have? How do you figure?
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (shouting!)

....you can't remember your father?!?

[A pause, then he bursts out in anger]

...this damn castle! What kind of messed-up game is that??
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (mad)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
Why should I calm down? It's one thing to take away my memories--why do I need to remember some guy who shoots spitwads, anyway? But making you forget your dad...? That's... ...well, it's sick. That's what it is.

[Phoenix is righteously indignant!]
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (thinking)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 03:26 am (UTC)(link)
I--well--yes!

[He isn't sure where to go with this line of conversation; he's still pretty flabbergasted all the way around.]

He... he was a good man. Definitely. I don't remember very much about him from childhood, but I knew him then, from hanging out with you... he was always really nice.
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (not happy)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah...

[He takes a deep breath.]

You wanted to be just like him. And you talked about him all the time. You must've really idolized him.
takethat: Phoenix in a t-shirt, eyes downcast. (sad...)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 03:35 am (UTC)(link)
...I think it would've been better for you to forget just about anyone or anything else. That's why I was so mad.
takethat: Phoenix in slight annoyance. (not pleased)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 03:44 am (UTC)(link)
...I guess that would've hurt, but I still think it would be better than forgetting your dad.
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (concerned)

[The longer Phoenix listens to this, the more he feels deeply sorry for Edgeworth--and, beneath that, renewed boiling anger at the castle for doing this. He is horrified to hear Edgeworth talking like that, and, as per usual, he wants to fix it... even as he knows he can't.]



...no wonder... you must be left with so many awful memories and very few good ones to visit when you need to.
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (cheer up emokid)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
....










[Great. Now he's got a moral dilemma to deal with. Tell Edgeworth the whole truth and depress the hell out of him all over again, or let it go and leave him to discover it some other way later on?

...no, it's definitely better to hear it from a friend. Phoenix looks at his feet, and his voice is shaky when next he speaks up.]


No, that's... not possible.

[He'll be dancing around the details as much as possible for now, barring any direct, unavoidable questions on the matter, anyway.]
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (unreadable)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 04:37 am (UTC)(link)
...if you do ask, I'll tell you. But if you don't want to know, then... no, don't ask me.

[A pause]

That offer stands any time, by the way. If you don't ask now... I'll be here to ask later if you change your mind.
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (distant)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 04:45 am (UTC)(link)
....yeah. That's correct.

[He's not offering more than that, feeling uneasy as it is.]
takethat: Phoenix as he usually appears--bright eyes, happy smile. (dramatic lighting)

[personal profile] takethat 2012-02-17 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
[To be fair, up until... just now... Phoenix thought the matter of Edgeworth's father was one of the hourglasses or vases or whatever already.

He fidgets with the hem of his pajama top and looks everywhere but at Edgeworth.]


I'm really sorry I had to tell you this. I... thought... well I obviously didn't know you'd forgotten.
