Hey guys, me again.

Just a few things to mention. The rp is set in Los Angeles, California so everyone knows. This is following the American games, so think of things on those terms. If that's a problem please let the mods know.

Secondly the disbarment issue. As you see we've acquired a Phoenix (hurray!), in_your_defense. As of now the disbarment will not happen. He can be accused of such, he can be brought before a committee, but for the sake of keeping the rp free of restraints the actual disbarment will not be worked towards. If anyone has an opinion on the matter they'd like to share you can comment here, or address the mods with any thoughts/complaints. I believe any discrepancies the Apollo Justice characters may have with this can be fixed, but if it's really a problem let the mods know.

Finally the practice case infortmation.

What the public knows - A famous club singer, Miranda Notes, has been arrested for murdering a man who has apparently been stalking her. Everyone expected her to claim self defense, since she had a restraining order against the man, Aiden Broussard, but she insists that she is innocent. The murder weapon was her own shoe. The police believe she pushed the man then, while he was down, kicked his head hard enough with the heel to kill him.

What the Police/Prosecution and what the defense knows will be put in separate posts only viewable to them.

Prosecution: Franziska
Defense: Kristoph
Judge: Rolin
Witnesses: Felicia (Ivory Kaydance), Gumshoe (Police testimony), Scarfle (Simon Argus)

Non Canon Witnesses -

Ivory Kaydance - Who will be played by herrgavin's player. I'll contact you with details soon.

Simon Argus - We still need someone for this role. Please consider, it'd be good practice for playing witnesses later. Taken, thank you Scarfle!

The role of Miranda is also up, though she should have little actual action.

Unless.. you want to alter the time line entirely?

Then Kris could just win the poker game. Which cuts out half the story, but.. XD

What's kind of limiting is that this kind of divides the cast in half (the AA side and the PW side) because Kris's glory moment is what kind of ties them all together. But maybe I'm over thinking it.

I'm hoping the natural progression of the game will bring the two sides together. Edgeworth and Klavier have already met (though they didn't particularly get along ^^') and I could easily see Phoenix and Apollo meeting and forming some sort of bond. Also we'll have our own events bringing people together, so hopefully everything will manage to fall into place nicely.

I understand your character is one of the ones most affected by this decision so if you want to discuss or make a complaint go right ahead. I'm hoping to be able to work everything out to everyone's liking (a lofty goal I'm aware ^^')

I might have to discuss it with you at some point, but good. I'm just afraid of being isolated from everyone because of who I'm playing. XD

Whats your IM? I seem to be failing at finding it.

My aim is caraflavia. I wasn't on before ^^ Feel free to im me now so we can discuss

Yes, because Apollo is a dorky fanboy~ XD

That would be the funniest log ever XD

Haha. They really didn't get a long.

Though, I kinda got very crack-y in the end because I was half asleep XD

I think you are overthinking it. :3

Just let him be the manipulative slightly psychotic Kristoph that he is... I'm sure the opportunity will arise to stir shit, if you really want him to. XD
23rd-Apr-2008 01:57 am (UTC)
I actually kind of would, at some point. XD It wouldn't be Kristoph if he didn't do something illegal.

This was a question that I had as well -- I wasn't sure how it was going to influence the rest of the AJ cast.

Of course, I wouldn't want Phoenix to be disbarred, just like any mun wouldn't want their pup to go through that kind of suffering -- but as I was saying to Shien earlier this morning, whether it would be the proper thing to do or not is the bigger question. I could play Phoenix in either situation, but it would also remove him as a star player in the game (and would thus reduce my involvement with him as a character in court, something that I wouldn't like to see, but could accept if it was absolutely needed in order for the plot to go on).

My question to you would be this: how would it influence Kristoph and his plotline, in your opinion? Do you think that the plot is inflexible, and that Phoenix should be disbarred? What kind of alternate timeline would you be thinking of using if Phoenix hadn't been removed from his position as a defense attorney?

I'm also on AIM right now [choco puffin] if you'd like to discuss it -- I know that a lot of people might not appreciate spoilers. I've finished Apollo Justice, so that might help us figure things out, too.

I'm not saying his plot is inflexible, it'll just take me a lot of thought to figure out how to make something work. XD I wouldn't want him to get disbarred either, if it can be avoided.

The alternate plotline... well.. that I'm not sure of. Thats another thing that I'll need to ponder, but that'll probably be on a case by case basis. ^^

And sure, I'll IM you in a bit.
