Deadpool Musical - Beauty and the Beast “Gaston” Parody
Who knew the “Merc with a Mouth” could sing? Check out this fan-made musical mashup of “Deadpool” and “Beauty & the Beast” featuring Wade’s own NSFW version of the classic song “Gaston” from the original musical.
This is from one of the trilogy era fan books, an interview with Ace Attorney writer/creator/director Takumi Shu about Phoenix and Edgeworth. I posted it on the PW Kink Meme before but since I finally jumped on the Tumblr bandwagon, I figured I might as well put it up here too. Enjoy~
Interviewer: The profile that the fans came up with for Wright is published on page 46. What’re your thoughts on it?
Shuu: You all put a lot of thought into that, didn’t you? Personally when it comes to Wright, the more I try to unravel him, the less I understand. When it comes to Edgeworth, he’s a little more unstable in some ways than the average person, so that actually makes it easier to think up interesting replies for him. But with Wright, I feel like he’s the type who leads a relatively normal life with both feet on the ground. And he’s quite average. That actually makes it more difficult to imagine what his life style is like.
I: As you say, Inaba-san and Iwamoto-san both described Wright as “average.” (see page 48)
S: I suppose so. He gives the impression of having been raised in a very normal family. I think he probably grew up in municipal housing or apartment building with his family. I bet even now he’s renting a normal apartment. He probably commutes to the bath house and stuff.
I: When it comes to his mode of transportation between his place of residence and his office or the bath house, it seems that a lot of fans are of the opinion that he rides his bike…
S: Couldn’t it be like a granny bike [characterized by having a basket on the front for carrying a purse/groceries]? I don’t really think a mountain bike suits him (lol) Just so we’re clear, I don’t ride a granny bike (lol)
I: Train and bike were mentioned, but what about other modes of transportation?
S: It’s been established that he doesn’t own a car. I can’t picture him driving one, it just doesn’t fit his image (lol)
I: Does he have his driver’s license?
S: Probably not.
I: While we’re on the subject, what about you, Shu-san? Do you have your license?
S: I don’t, actually (lol). That might have influenced Wright in a way.
I: The next item on the player input survey is about “part time jobs he had in college.” In average Wright’s case, there seems to be a general consensus that it would’ve likely been something that had a lot to do with serving people’s daily needs or the hospitality industry, but since he was enrolled in the art department, I think it would be interesting if he’d done some artistic modeling.
S: He might’ve also been something like a manga artist’s assistant.
I: What exactly was Wright studying in the art department?
S: I actually have an established headcannon about that. He was hoping to become a Shakespearian actor. That’s why he was enrolled with the art department. Influenced by that experience, his gestures tend to be a little exaggerated
I: So did he plan on someday going to England to study acting, then?!
S: I think he did. But then while he was enrolled, a newspaper article about Edgeworth caught his eye. After that he changed courses and started studying to be a defense attorney so that he could meet Edgeworth.
I: I wouldn’t have expected him to pursue an acting career. So does this mean that he’s actually pretty capricious?
S: I wouldn’t call him capricious exactly; I think he’s more the type that once he starts thinking a lot about a certain thing, he becomes very single-mindedly fixated on that thing (lol). I already mentioned that in the “his ‘type’” section though, didn’t I?
I: I see. Let’s talk about his taste in cell phones. What sort of phone do you imagine him owning? I’m betting that since he’s hopeless with technology, he has a very basic model that he’s used and loved for a long time. Is that right?
S: It’s probably one of those old basic straight phones [as opposed to a slider or flip phone which were more common in Japan when this was written]. But even as old as it is, he still hasn’t managed to ruin it with over use. I doubt he’d bother to replace it until it actually breaks… He doesn’t seem like he’d be able to afford an upgrade before that time (lol)
I: Wright keeps taking jobs that don’t end up paying much, so he doesn’t seem like he has much money.
S: And we probably shouldn’t underestimate the cost of maintaining that office of his. It’s in pretty good shape, and there’s a decent amount of room in there. But I think that for Wright, in contrast to wealthy Edgeworth, a poorer image suits him pretty well. If you think of him that way, he, how should I put this… it adds flavor to his character (lol)
Interviewer: Looking at the responses we gathered from the fans, we got some pretty nice comments, but it still feels like there are gaps here and there. What can you tell us about Edgeworth’s character?
Shu: Compaired to Wright, don’t you think Edgeworth’s details are easier to imagine? How should I put this… it’s easy to play around with different aspects of his character. Once I decided that he was rich, various inspirations about him just kept coming to me.
I: Speaking of his wealthiness, it looks like the fans, in regard to his living quarters, imagined him to have rather expensive tastes.
S: I wonder (lol). I think he might be the owner of a large dog. Its collar is white and has frills on it. If you’re going to keep a large dog like that indoors, I suppose an expensive apartment would be best. He’d be like, “Hey, Pess! What’re you barking at?!”
S: That’s the dog’s name (lol) Edgeworth doesn’t seem like the type who’d be good at communicating with other people or horses, Pess is the only one he can really communicate well with.
I: Pess is the only one, huh? (lol) That’s pretty blunt.
S: If Pess were to die, Edgeworth’s world might come to an end. He’s a man who lives in that sort of delicate balance.
I: Edgeworth’s emotional state really depends on Pess’s wellbeing, doesn’t it? So even though he puts up a strong front for the rest of the world, he allows himself to be vulnerable in front of Pess. Is that it?
S: Not only that, but Edgeworth is a very two-faced character. At first, I planned to write him as the type of man without any chinks in his armor. But then… in the strategy guide published by Futabasha, Suekane-san drew a comic in which Edgeworth was a Steel Samurai fan. Now that I think about it,that was what caused Edgeworth’s character to begin to crumble (lol). I began to think “he might actually be cuter if there were chinks in his armor.”
I: Between Wright and Edgeworth, which one do you view as being cuter?
S: Wright is heavily modeled after my own personality, so I can’t really think of him as “cute.” Maybe it’s because when I write from Wright’s point of view, I’m basically just writing what I would think in that situation.
I: So from Wright’s perspective, Edgeworth is…
S: He’s probably thinking that Edgeworth is a pretty cute guy (lol). The second game was when Edgeworth really began to come into his own as a character. So as I was writing it, I began to want to give him a little more development, and I came up with an episode where Wright’s it a really tough spot and Edgeworth helps him out.
I: You’re right; it was the fourth case of the second game where we really began to see Edgeworth as a good guy. It really gave credibility to the claim that he was Wright’s best friend. Now, returning to the topic of the profiles, I’m curious as to what you have to say about Edgeworth’s taste in music.
S: He might be a ppongjjak fan. [Pponjjak= Korean techno/disco music XDDDD]
I: P-ppongjjak?! That’s… rather unexpected…
S: What would be the fun in making him a classical music fan? So he’d be like, standing at attention, listening to ppongjjak. I think that style of music actually suits Edgeworth’s character pretty well.
I: According to the opinions of some players, they could imagine him “singing a passionate rendition of the English song 'My Way.’” Might he sing this song after a victory in court?
S: Sometimes he’ll do things in accordance with the Von Karma family tradition. That means if he wins a trial, he definitely sings “My Way.” (lol) Manfred Von Karma would hold the mic out to him and say, “Sing, Miles.” Franziska might also join him.
I: Speaking of the Von Karma family, it’s amazing how he had all those Von Karma-isms carefully hammered into him since around his middle school years.
S: He received special accelerated education for gifted children, so by the time he was around 20 years old, he fit in pretty well at the Von Karma family dinner table. By the way, the old housekeeper that currently tends to Edgeworth’s fancy appartment has been with him since back then (lol)
I: The old housekeeper left the Von Karmas so that she could be with Edgeworth, huh? (lol)
S: But I think of Edgeworth as being the type of man who really appreciates time to himself, so on such occasions the housekeeper won’t disturb him. I wonder what it is about Edgeworth’s character that makes him so easy to play with (lol). It’s strange.
Ok but the singer from Kiss Me I'm Shitfaced by Dropkick Murphys will always be my UFSans headcannon voice. And like, the song fits as well. I showed it to my friends and we were bursting out laughing imagining him singing this. Just..... bagpipes, man. I hope to god that he plays a bagpipe in secret. And I'll always imagine him with this voice while reading fics and I can't help it and I laugh the whole time. Imagine Squish just coming home to something like this blasting around the house.
LOL oh gosh, those bagpipes. i actually quite enjoy the idea of uf!sans playing the bagpipes. so we got him on bagpipes, classic on trombone, i wonder what weird instrument blue would play…lol
the lyrics to this song are definitely crude enough to be sung by uf!sans haha. squish would probably just be incredibly amused to come home to this absolute fuckery. but you know, she could always oblige that kiss ;)
alrighty this tag is actually kinda hard since I rarely listen to all the music on an album but here are some I recommend in no particular order
Summer Nights by Caleb Belkin: low fi music good for studying and background music
Random Access Memories by Daft Punk: ok Im really into Daft Punk like i would kill to see them live, why wasn’t I born in 1990, overall just nice jammin songs my dude
Harbor by Tomppabeats: this guy, his songs are so good, makes you feel nostalgic, also lowfi music and is basically an essential
You Never Walk Alone by BTS: of course my babies needed to be included on here, maybe its just me but I can listen to A Supplementary Story on loop for hours
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition by Chicago Symphony Orchestra: I saw this shit in Boston Symphony Hall and it had to be one of the best moments of my time in band, just the grandeur was amazing and being with my favorite ppl and dressed all fancy it was a good time. Each movement is supposed to represent a painting and I like the imagery it creates in your head, its originally written for piano but I find the orchestra rendition to be my preference
Run by AWOLNATION: ok another band I’m super into I just love it so much and apparently a new album is coming out soon???? Alternative music you can headbang to I guess (but thats coming from someone who headbangs to classical music so)
May I request the chocobros and their S/o chillin out having fun on a beach? 😄 w some frank sinatra songs playin in the background or different songs w the same genre? Just carefree fluff w the boys on the beach :D who would chill in the sand and who would throw their s/o in the water LOL
Carefree fluff is the best kind of fluff, anon.
Writing this spurred this beach-lorn lust inside of me, and now I can’t shake the desire to go on vacation.🐳
As far as music goes, I’m positively elated to hear that you’re requesting some Sinatra!
He’s honestly one of the first vocal jazz artists that got me into the genre itself, launching me into what now has become a love affair of big band, classic, and modern jazz alike.
While the prince may not look it, he’s an aboslute natural stripped down in his colorful swim trunks at the beach
Being able to be outside basking in the glow of the sun alongside you, without the trouble of worry of daemons really puts him at ease
His somewhat hidden cheekiness will shine through, as he suddenly scoops you up in his arms and runs to the shoreline, you playfully writhing and squirming within his grasp, before he finally throws you into the water
The look of your shocked face will send him to his knees as he positively dies of laughter, mumbling apologies and words of affection, promising you that you couldn’t be any more adorable
He won’t even stop when you pull him in alongside you - only chuckling against your neck as he pulls you close and presses suple kisses to your jawline
All worries of PDA are out the window; Noct is on vacation, and nobody or nothing could take that blissful lack of care away from him
jihoon is a cat hybrid! he was adopted as a child and lived a fairly simple life with his family, who treated him like their own son
the token cat hybrid…. like you will never meet a hybrid who fits their animal DNA as well as jihoon fits his cat DNA: he’s quiet and sleeps a lot and doesn’t like being cute but can’t help being adorable!!! acts standoffish but is actually the sweetest and cares so much about his friends!!!!
has small little black cat ears poking out of his hair with the pinkest insides!!! and a long tail that is always flicking around
doesn’t like being snuck up on and hisses whenever someone surprises him :( usually he’s reserved, but he can get pretty annoyed easily, and when he does his tail goes stiff and his hair sticks up a little bit…… it’s so cute :( don’t tell him that though
