der_gewinner: (you think you're so dead hard?)
Achtung! I would like to register my disappointment in the LA Times. The front page of tonight's edition covers the trial of Shadi Enigmar (a.k.a. Zak Gramarye), as well it should. I take umbrage, however, with the focus of the article. “Phoenix the Forger? LA's Legend Implicated in Fraud.” Tell me, why should we glorify the crimes of this unscrupulous defence attorney, rather than to laud the hero who brought his crimes to light? I would very much have liked to see my own face on the front page of the Times. But what can you do? It is only my second disappointment today.

The first was not being allowed to finish presenting my case against Enigmar. His face, too, is on the front page. If you have seen him, do inform the police. We have unfinished business, and I hate to leave a mess.

But this is not why you are reading my Livejournal, ja? Let us lighten the mood. I have just recorded a new song on my webcam, here:

ETA: Ach, so even Youtube is going to disappoint me today? I cannot embed the video! That is it, I am going out for a beer.

Page two. "Genius Prosecutor Reveals Crooked Attorney."

It is something, at least.

Still, you've got to admit there is some discrepancy in hiding that article on page two, after covering the front with mixed reviews of the villain in our story, ja?

Discrepancy? Phoenix Wright means a lot more to this city than a rookie prosecutor still wet behind the ears. There is your cause of imbalanced reporting.

...When you put it that way.

Herr Edgeworth, can you see the embedded video on your side?

Date: 2010-04-30 03:40 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
And the drinking age here is still 21.

Date: 2010-04-30 03:42 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]

Back home I go, then. I'm a law-abiding man.

Date: 2010-04-30 04:04 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
I am very sorry to hear that your case didn't go as well as you expected, Mr. Gavin. Such a shame.

I empathize. Our embassy was only featured in front pages of the press when something quite awful happened here. Don't mistake me, America's press is wonderful and among the most free in the world, but journalists do have a taste for the sensational sometimes! So please don't take it personally.

I'm also sorry I wasn't able to witness your video.

Hopefully things will look up for you soon!

You're very kind, Herr Ambassador. I enjoyed the performance, but the aftermath left something to be desired.

Incidentally, what is the drinking age in Cohdopia?

Then I'm glad it wasn't entirely a disappointment, and that you had a good time.

As it so happens, the drinking age in Cohdopia is the same as in your native Germany! (We have many close ties with Germany, as you're no doubt aware.) Sixteen, but eighteen for distilled beverages.

Date: 2010-04-30 06:40 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Deutschland's relations with Cohdopia have always interested me, particularly in the way they handled the split nations. We have come a long way from the Achsenmächte, ja?

Maybe celebrating my so bittersweet victory on Cohdopian soil is the way to go, ja? I'll see you soon!

Date: 2010-04-30 10:09 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Oh, you're referring to the protectorate government of the 1940s! Quite a tumultuous time.

Yes, I found the German diplomats' way of handling Cohdopia's separation quite inspiring, especially considering the ideological and linguistic differences between Babahl and Allebahst. That must have been a great challenge for them.

There have certainly been many dark times in the histories of our nations. Fortunately, they are behind us, and our peoples continue to be great friends and look towards the future together.

And you're most welcome in Cohdopia, of course!

Yo you can chill at my place if you're looking for a drink. My dad's got a six pack in the fridge and it's not like he cares or anything.

I'll pretend I didn't see my main man offering to pass a minor a beer.

Date: 2010-04-30 07:15 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Hahaha! Com'n you deserve at LEAST a beer after that shit went down.

Date: 2010-04-30 07:23 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
I'll get one where it's legal.

Now let's stop talking about illegal activities. I am an honest lawyer, after all.

[As a safety measure, this entire thread has now been screened.]

Date: 2010-04-30 07:37 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
And where are you gonna go for something like that? Gonna fly back to Germany for a celebratory drink? Hahaha

Date: 2010-04-30 07:51 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Ahahaha. I'm not that desperate. (Though it would be nice to have a day with Mutter.)

No, there is Deutsch soil in the US. But... Cohdopia's embassy is closer, ja?

Date: 2010-04-30 07:57 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Oh, so you're just saying we need to get a drink at the embassy.

Date: 2010-05-01 03:28 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Then shit... what are we waiting for, man?

Date: 2010-04-30 09:45 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
What a troubling case. Thank goodness for noble prosecutors such as yourself for putting crooked attorneys in their place.

Date: 2010-05-01 01:17 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Thank you, Fraulein Teneiro. I don't need to say that I was not expecting this sort of development when I took the case, but I am glad it came out sooner rather than later.

Date: 2010-05-02 03:51 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Did you do it for justice or for recognition?

Date: 2010-05-02 03:55 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
A little of both. Don't we all?

But seriously, as much as the insta-fame rocks, I'm more appreciative of the opportunity to see justice prevail.

Date: 2010-05-02 03:57 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
People love a good crime story. That's all there is. No use getting worked up about it, right?

Take solace in justice.

Date: 2010-05-02 01:57 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
Oh my, what a stirring article! And what a horrible criminal you've uncovered! You're such a brave man Mr. Gavin, to expose him like that.

((Oh Lauren. You so cheesy))

Date: 2010-05-02 02:12 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
It did not take that much courage, fraulein...!

Just one word.


Date: 2010-05-02 02:41 pm (UTC)From: [identity profile]
I wish I could have been there!

Date: 2010-05-03 05:51 am (UTC)From: [identity profile]
You do not have a life sentence, ja? Perhaps someday, you will get to experience the thrill of the courtroom-- from the audience.
