[Phoenix Wright / Apollo Justice] [Klavier/Ema] Coffee at 12 AM  
Title: Coffee at 12 AM
Author/ess: stillkneedeep
Series: Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney / Gyakuten Saiban 4
Length: 1,101 words, one shot
Character/pairing: Klavier/Ema
Rating/warnings: T/PG-13
Summary: If coffee is god, then Klavier Gavin is the devil.

I probably should’ve just tagged all of the PW/AJ fics under “Gyakuten Saiban”…oops. So they’ll all be under Phoenix Wright in the mems and tags, even if the header has Apollo Justice. After all, a few of the characters overlap and it’s still the same universe. I’m not sure if I prefer the old cast more – I found myself missing Edgeworth and Franziska often – but older!Ema and people like Klavier still made the game more than worthwhile. Pair them together and you have utter hilarity and probably a wave of destruction in Ema’s wake. Ema’s stuck working late, and then Klavier comes with coffee…not that Ema will take charity from him or anything.

The whole thing is hilarious. I loved the reference to the third PW/GS game what with the big top case, and everything that Klavier does to raise Ema’s ire could be exactly like him. And ah, the end. Perfect setup. I’m not a fan of authors using bold, but there’s not a lot, and now I’m just being nitpicky. It’s a funny, short scene that does what it sets out to do very nicely. And besides, any fic where Klavier antagonizes Ema like this is worth the read alone.

Preview:
She sighs irritably as her thoughts drift back to the reason why she’s poring over case files at 11:43 pm on a Monday night, when she could be sleeping in her comfy bed in her snug little apartment.

“Well, if it isn’t my little working girl!”

Speak of the devil.

Ema rolls her chair backward in a swift motion (hee, rolly chairs: one of the few perks of being a detective) and glares at the intruder, who comes bearing two steaming cups bearing the logo of a local coffee shop. Granted, coffee sounds like nirvana right now, but Ema isn’t going to cave.

“Oh. Klavier. It’s you.”
