Ended up doing this in my spare time to welcome another side of the Ace Attorney fanbase into the blessed glory that is Mile Edgeworth Investigations. Here are my top recommended Post-AAI2/GK2 fanfictions, Feel free to add more if you wish - note that some summaries may contain spoilers!

Theophila. Edgeworth is surprised when Kay presents him with her promise book and asks him to sign it for her. It seems actions truly speak louder than words as he reflects on the circumstances that brought them to this moment… [Gen/Family, Kay Faraday & Miles Edgeworth, wc:
Two in the Bush by
Rosage. Pride, sunshine, and a father’s love—all things Kay Faraday has lost since beginning her career as the Yatagarasu. Trucy Wright has all three in abundance, and her tricks seem like the perfect thing to cover up a botched heist.

Lyricless Lament byestelraca. The one thing he learned from his father that maybe, just maybe, had some merit was not to be ashamed of his tears. Five times Sebastian cried in front of others, and one time someone cried in front of Sebastian.
[Drama/Friendship, Sebastian DeBeste & Klavier Gavin, wc:
‘Debeste’ Prosecutor for the Magician Who’s Always 'Wright’ by
nevercomerunning. Trucy adored Sebastian Debeste almost instantly. And before Sebastian even really noticed, Trucy Wright had stubbornly rooted herself in Sebastian’s life. He didn’t really mind though. Trucy is sort of amazing.
[Drama/Family, Sebastian DeBeste & Trucy Wright, Mentions of Child Abuse and Burns, wc:
character i’d like to see in a flower crown: Fitzsimmons! (shhh they count as one). Want some snapchat proof?
character i’d like to see have an emotional breakdown: JEMMA SIMMONS NEEDS TO PROCESS HER EMOTIONS PASS IT ON.
character i’d like to see get punched in the face: John Garrett oh wait.
character most likely to sing along to journey songs in the car: Director Dad belts out those journey songs and his kids are SO embarrassed.
character who refuses to pull over and ask for directions on road trips: LANCE HUNTER. (I’m not saying this is why Huntingbird got divorced but um).
character who always stubs their toes on the washing machine: Leo Fitz (I can just hear him grumble over this with his grumbly Scottish accent).
character who changes their starbucks order ten times: Jemma Simmons- “Oh, I already have my tea but… What about a white mocha? Oh, I had that yesterday. Okay, okay. I’ve got it. I’ll just go with a vanilla latte. With splenda? No, no. I mean, I just biologically disagree with artificial sweetener. Size? Hmmm. Size? I’ve had too much caffeine lately, so I should go with a tall. But I’ve been so tired today. Fitz, if I get a grande, will you finish anything I have left? Oh, of course not. You only go for tea. Hmmm….”
character who shows up late for everything: EVERYONE but Agent Melinda May. Huntingbird are in the middle of some argument, Fitzsimmons are so distracted science-ing, Skye is on tumblr (trust me), Coulson may or may not be on a Captain America fansite, Trip (WHO IS ALIVE) is trying to gather everyone because he is an actual ray of sunshine, and Mack is staring longingly at Lola, and Ward is playing with the puppy that he snuck onto the base (with Fitz).
character who is the worst kisser: I’m not saying that Jemma Simmons had to teach Leopold Fitz to kiss back at the academy but….
character who takes 45 minutes showers: Leo Fitz sings in the shower, (Lance Hunter moisturizes).
character who gets most bent out of shape over the pronunciation of gif: SKYE. “No, dad, that’s not how you say it. Dad, no.” (to both Coulson and Cal tbh).
