I... honestly don't have anything witty to say here.

Go crazy so long as you read the rules, and the contact post is open if you guys need me for anything.

Check the game script or it didn't happen. >=]

Lol jk. But serious answer: yeah, my least favorite ships are usually whenever I see Phoenix or Apollo paired up with anybody in general, but #1 least favorite has to be Phoenix/Maya. The dynamic just doesn't work in my opinion, and often I see Maya's character changed into a humorless, dominating, sexy seductress in order to bypass the fact that Maya totally acts like a teenager in game. And Phoenix has more of a fraternal/goofy/buttmonkey relationship going on with her, I really appreciate that sort of platonic relationship.

Another least favorite ship of mine is actually a tendency rather than anything solid. If Phoenix/Edgeworth is the primary romance in the story, then Klavier/Apollo will be thrown in as well, and vice versa. To me it's just kinda annoying, and I think it absolutely ruins the impact of the primary romance. A story about a unique and (presumably) important romance quickly becomes "lol gay lawyers everywhere."

Moving on to my favorite ships: uh, honestly, I think crack pairings are my favorite. There were a couple of prompts on the kink meme where Lotta Heart became popular all of a sudden, and I got excited about the Lotta/Phoenix one (I see Phoenix as a goofy guy, and often in the games he has to interact with likewise goofy-in-their-own-way people, so maybe in the process of trying to reach their own goals, they got chemistry together?).

I think uncommon pairings are my favorites because the side characters are fairly one-note so they're hard to mess up on (Edgeworth is a complex character; not even the dude who wrote Ace Attorney: Investigations got him down right), but the author writing the rair pair has to provide the burden of proof for their romance. With common pairings like Phoenix/Edgeworth and Apollo/Klavier, the romantic relationship is already assumed, so no extra work is done.
