#01 - Walking

He's leaving the courthouse when the red sports car catches his eye for the billionth time; he'd love nothing more than to be in that passenger's seat right now, and not even because it's raining.

#02 - Waltz

One's always leading, the other following, and although the positions may change, they're constantly moving in a graceful, flowing dance through the courtroom.

#03 - Wishes

"You have an eyelash"--and Phoenix plucks the offending hair from Edgeworth's cheek without so much as a second thought; to cover his embarrassment after the fact, he holds it out and says, "Make a wish!"

#04 - Wonder

"I seriously doubt he even swings that way," Phoenix mutters, and Maya screeches in laughter--"Who, Edgeworth?"

#05 - Worry

They're facing off in court in the morning, and Miles is irritable and frustrated at every turn, poring over documents until so late it's early; Phoenix, on the other hand, has been snoring since midnight, and Miles loves to hate him for it.

#06 - Whimsy

When he notices the Steel Samurai keychain dangling out of the prosecutor's pocket, Phoenix hugs him.

#07 - Waste/Wasteland

Sometimes, in the middle of the night, Edgeworth wakes with a start and buries his face against Phoenix's back, failing to hide the tears as he murmurs, "I'm nothing, I'm worthless," and Phoenix whispers his name repeatedly into the dark.

#08 - Whiskey and rum

"God, you smell like a distillery," Miles mutters as he pulls away from the brief Jack Daniels-laden kiss and returns to his own mojito.

#09 - War

To the victor go the spoils--and Edgeworth is a fine prize.

#10 - Weddings

In the aftermath of being disbarred, he sits on the sofa, flipping channels through daytime television, and winces when the little girl at his side asks him to stop at the "pretty wedding show," hating the memories of what might have been.

#11 - Birthday

Miles thinks it's foolish, but Phoenix insists on topping (it is his birthday, after all); he's clumsy and awkward, only very slightly experienced, but he's so gentle and loving that when Miles breathes "wow," he means it.

#12 - Blessing

They're terrified when Maya catches them looking disheveled and flushed in the back room, but she just cheers and claps them both on the back, thoroughly pleased with the whole situation.

#13 - Bias

It's difficult to keep his morals holding strong when there's something blatantly sexy about the glint of victory in the defense attorney's eyes.

#14 - Burning

"I know you'll pull through this," the quiet voice on the other end of the message says, but as Phoenix hangs up he can't help but think the combustion is final this time--there will be no rebirth.

#15 - Breathing

The only sign that there's anyone in the room is the jagged breathing coming from behind the desk, but Phoenix hears it and he's there in a moment, kneeling and reassuring the other man that it was just a small quake this time, nothing to worry about.

#16 - Breaking

Every time gray eyes meet blue, something inside Miles Edgeworth shatters.

#17 - Belief

There are only so many times a man can be told "I believe in you" before it starts to sink in.

#18 - Balloon

"Let's go, let's go, c'mon, it'd be so romantic," Phoenix grins as he points to the hot air balloon nearby; "Wright, what part of me do you think would enjoy that?" is the response, but Phoenix can't say he didn't try.

#19 - Balcony

He's drunk and standing on the balcony outside his office, shouting the words to love songs into the storm that's raging outside; Maya shouts back from indoors, "Just tell him you love him already!" but he doesn't hear.

#20 - Bane

A von Karma, even a von Karma whose last name happens to be Edgeworth, doesn't lose--but this one has, and although the man who caused it should be the object of his intense hatred, that's very much not the case.

#21 - Quiet

Miles likes to sit in companionable silence, and Phoenix can appreciate that, but it's all he can do not to chatter endlessly anyway.

#22 - Quirks

The sidelong glances, the hand gripping his own arm tightly, the inability to make eye contact very often--Phoenix has studied and memorized them all, and considers each another piece to solving the puzzle that is Miles Edgeworth.

#23 - Question

Phoenix's grin is sly and his his eyes sparkle as he leans in and whispers roughly, "Wanna do it?" although Edgeworth is largely unimpressed by his "lewd behavior."

#24 - Quarrel

They do enough fighting in court that they rarely have lovers' spats outside of it, but when they do, the battles are long and gruesome, and almost always end in Phoenix apologizing even if he still doesn't think he's wrong.

#25 - Quitting

"I refuse to believe you're just giving up, after all this;" "Miles I can't do anything about it, they already took my badge," and then they're both silent until the door is slammed shut, and they do not cross each others' paths for almost a decade after.

#26 - Jump

Nearly every day they spend together is a leap of faith, but they keep jumping anyway.

#27 - Jester

"Don't you get tired of making a fool out of yourself and being laughed at so often?" Miles asks him; Phoenix grins, says, "Every court needs a jester," and Miles rolls his eyes with a chuckle.

#28 - Jousting

"Objection!"--and they're charging toward each other, eyes alight, skin dotted with sweat; Edgeworth's armor is thicker, but Phoenix's weaponry is powerful.

#29 - Jewel

"You're so beautiful, so beautiful," Phoenix murmurs, and Edgeworth loves to hear it, even if he chalks the compliments up to nothing more than the heat of the moment.

#30 - Just

At some point, they both stop caring about winning and losing, and start focusing more on working together to make sure the right person is convicted, no matter who that may be.

#31 - Smirk

It shouldn't be possible for one expression to be so infuriating and so intoxicating all at the same time.

#32 - Sorrow

If only Miles would let him in, Phoenix knew he could help, would help; he had a strong heart, and it could take on some of that sorrow and maybe slowly, painstakingly, clean it and return it to Miles once again as happiness.

#33 - Stupidity

He's tired, so tired, he can't remember when the last time was he shaved or washed, there are seventeen unheard voicemail messages from Edgeworth and a little girl asleep on his sofa, and he hates himself.

#34 - Serenade

"All I wanna do is make love to you~" Phoenix sings drunkenly in the tightly-packed karaoke bar, and Miles can feel his face turning bright red as he hopes Maya, Gumshoe, and Maggey will think it's from the body heat and alcohol.

#35 - Sarcasm

The attorney's hand brushes the prosecutor's thigh beneath the dinner table; a "sorry" is muttered, and an "Of course you are" is replied.

#36 - Sordid

The bed is creaking, the lamp on the nightstand is knocked over, and the way Phoenix is shouting and carrying on, Miles is concerned for a moment that the world is going to hear them--and what a scandal that would cause for the both of them.

#37 - Soliloquy

"You don't understand--you could never understand--you weren't there, you didn't see what I saw, you didn't live with the forged memories I did, you don't even know what it's like to have a phobia, and I just want to be left the hell alone"--Phoenix is deeply cut by the words that are spat in his direction, although he takes some comfort in realizing that Miles has probably long since forgotten he's even sitting there next to him.

#38 - Sojourn

Edgeworth had taken many trips out of the country over the years, and they'd all been met with different reactions from Phoenix upon his return (including being punched in the chest, once); the most disconcerting, however, was the day he returned and could no longer find Phoenix anywhere.

#39 - Share

Suddenly, while they're both working on separate cases side by side, Miles says, "I recall the time you visited my house--my father gave us a box of chocolate ice cream and we split the whole thing and ate it all--you vomited on the living room carpet," and Phoenix can't be irritated when Miles breaks into a quiet, bittersweet laugh, deeply-seated in nostalgia.

#40 - Solitary

So alone, so alone, and it aches in his chest and in his bones when he stares into the darkness and longs so desperately for someone to be there to hold him.

#41 - Nowhere

Even with all of Edgeworth's ability, he never can seem to catch Phoenix at home to ask him about the disbarrment--which is exactly how Phoenix wants it.

#42 - Neutral

"Let's go to the amusement park," he teases, and is stunned when the response is a neutral shrug rather than a definite no.

#43 - Nuance

"I'm honored to call you my partner," the prosecutor says, and Phoenix and Maya both pick up on the subtle change in the meaning of the word.

#44 - Near

Phoenix can't be physically close enough to Miles; even wrapped tightly in each others' limbs, even with friction and body heat melding together, he digs in his fingernails and tries to pull even closer.

#45 - Natural

There's nothing at all strange about the two men, far from the prying eyes of the courts, holding hands and walking together, bundled against both the physical and the mental chill of winter.

#46 - Horizon

Neither of them can really fathom what the future might bring, but as they sit on the low retaining wall, watching the sunset and sipping slushes together from the nearby 7-11, neither of them care.

#47 - Valiant

"I've never known anyone as brave as you are," Phoenix murmurs, and Miles is startled, because he feels the same way about the other man.

#48 - Virtuous

Sometimes, Edgeworth can't deal with how good Phoenix is, and other times, that's all that keeps him moving through the day.

#49 - Victory

It doesn't matter which of them wins--they both celebrate together in the same way the night after (or in the car on the way home).

#50 - Defeat

When the news reaches Edgeworth in Germany, his heart breaks, and in the following years, he finds his own career hollow and meaningless, nearly as finished as Phoenix's.
