turnabout,

Another little thing in Turnabout Goodbyes that cracks me up: When giving your theory of what Non-Miles person murdered Robert Hammond, you have three choices: Lotta, he killed himself and LARRY. 

Guess what I immediately chose

to which Phoenix was like “NO COME ON I CAN’T JUST SACRIFICE ONE FRIEND TO SAVE ANOTHER THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE”

Okay. But Phoenix. if there was no other choice. you know who you would choose.

I MEAN THIS ACTUALLY OCCURRED TO YOU AS AN OPTION APPARENTLY. 

THAT TIME PHOENIX HAD TO TALK HIMSELF OUT OF OFFERING LARRY UP AS A SACRIFICE TO SAVE MILES EDGEWORTH.

If you choose Lotta he does actually accuse her. And the judge is like “do you have…anything to base this on at all” “….no” “Mr. Wright stop  doing this”.

ok we’re all losing our shit over ghost and yes, it’s a great music video, it’s seasonal, it’s cute…

but can we take just a moment to acknowledge the existence of this

Can we just talk about how important this piece of official art is?

Okay, so we all know that up until the end of 2016, Christmas meant nothing but pain for Edgeworth. On Christmas Day, 2001, he lost the father he greatly admired, causing his entire life to change in an instant. 

But then came 2016, and Phoenix Wright.

Phoenix, who had chased after him all these years, reappeared in his life to defend him when nobody else would. He shut the DL-6 case once and for all, allowing Miles closure on an event that had haunted him his entire life.

Closure which, as we can see through his chuckling in this picture, helped him to move on.

Now, with the Santa suit in hand, he ponders whether he should put it on outside or not, but it’s clear he intends on joining Wright and company inside.  

So, not only do we see that he’s moved on, but that he’s also warmed up to Wright & Co. - people he initially had little faith in - as has Franziska, who is cheerfully enjoying the festivities along with the others. 

Because of Phoenix Wright, he can now enjoy the Christmas season, as well. 

This is, in my opinion, the most important piece of official art. It shows us that Edgeworth has put his past behind him, and that Christmas isn’t a painful time for him anymore.
