Okay, so. Slashy fics involving Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth. I'm down with the pairing, personally, but you see...
The earthquake thing's getting old.
Yes, I know, Edgey's a cantankerous bundle of issues and pride and magnificent ruffles. But a quick OMFG TRAUMA RELAPSE isn't the only way to make him open up to Phoenix, really, srsly, and PTSD probably doesn't make people horny, either. I've seen Edgeworth earthquake comfortfic done well, I've seen it used for introspection, I've seen it done with pure eyeroll-worthy Yaoi Logic, I've seen it on a boat, I've seen it with a goat, I do not LIKE earthquakes and smut, the fandom's in a slashy rut. ...See, look what abuse of a theme does, it makes me parody stuff!
Edgeworth doesn't like heights either, but that one rarely sees fic mention -- heck, it's outright contradicted more often than not. The manga shows Phoenix's phobia of thunderstorms, and I've seen maybe one fic explore that. Or don't traumatize the guys at all! Let them frolic in a field of happy bunnies and rainbows and have tea parties with Pearl! Just please, Attorneyfen, lay off the earthquakes or I'll eat this kitten!
