Off the Rails  
[It's a train yard! There are empty boxcars on the tracks...and a few off of them. The sun is always setting, and so it looks a great deal like this. It's a huge room, so there's plenty of space for everyone to wander around~]



[Chaos!Kris is sitting on top of a boxcar, smoking a cigarette and just...thinking]

*He's not really surprised after making a forest and main street of Ojai, California to see this sort of thing here, but he is surprised to see Professor Edgeworth perched up on top of a box car. He stands quietly in the middle of the tracks nearby looking up at him in amusement*

I thought you were afraid of heights, Edgeworth?
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Glasses Sadprofesseurdeloi on April 22nd, 2008 03:04 pm (UTC)
*On most days, the familiar voice would be welcome, but since the incident with his alternate, he's been trying to avoid any of the Wrights. So he hesitates a fraction before answering, and there's more of a frown on his face than a smile*

I had a reason to try and overcome it just this once, Wright.
hobophoenix on April 22nd, 2008 04:16 pm (UTC)
*Even from the ground, he can see that Edgeworth isn't in the best of moods. He decides to leave it alone for the time being and walks forward the few feet to the ladder up, grabbing one of the bars with his hand*</i>

Would you like some company? I promise not to fall this time.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Avoidantprofesseurdeloi on April 22nd, 2008 08:38 pm (UTC)
Please yourself, Wright.

*It probably sounds more churlish than he intended it to, but actually he's most irritated with himself because really he knows he does want the company, despite everything*

Don't expect me to rescue you if you freeze halfway up.
hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 03:52 am (UTC)
*Chuckles, gripping the bar tightly and levering himself up, mumbling a few words under his breath as he reaches the top and steps over carefully to Edgeworth, sitting down a few feet away from him, looking pointedly away from the ground*

Nice place.

It's not mine.

*The answer is short and to the point, but even to his own ears it sounds sharp*

I suppose you could say I am keeping an eye on it... until the owner gets back.

*He smiles a little, then, but only to himself*

hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 07:09 pm (UTC)
Still a rather nice place.

*He sounds amused, leaning back onto his hands and watching the sunset. He can almost feel the shortness in Edgeworth's reply, but he doesn't comment*

Who should I thank for the view then?

It's somewhat unique, certainly.

*He frowns and stubs out the forgotten cigarette when it starts to burn his fingers, tossing the butt onto the tracks below. He doesn't look round at Phoenix when he answers the question*

Kristoph Gavin. One of them, anyway.
hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 07:37 pm (UTC)
*internet sneak?*
*His stiffens slightly at the name, eyes narrowing. Wondering just how many of them there are and if any of them are really that different. He's sure Edgeworth knows what Gavin did to him and to his own Phoenix.

Pass the word along then?
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Avoidantprofesseurdeloi on April 23rd, 2008 07:49 pm (UTC)
*He sighs, slightly. He was expecting that reaction, if not a worse one. It's the same reaction he has himself to any of the other Kristophs*

He's not like the others.

*He frowns a little, almost speaking to himself, now*

Or at least he wasn't. I hope that will remain the case.
hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 07:56 pm (UTC)
*He finds that easier to believe from Edgeworth and he relaxes some, nodding once. It's obvious he's the other man's friend and the prospect of him being unlike the others is an interesting one, but before he can ask, Edgeworth's statement catches him and he glances over to him*

Something set him off here?

Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Hmmmprofesseurdeloi on April 23rd, 2008 08:00 pm (UTC)
His alternates, I believe. Which I am sure will come as no surprise to you.

*There's a touch of sarcasm in his tone, before he sighs again*

I am not sure what he plans to do, but I trust it will not be counter-productive.

hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 08:04 pm (UTC)
What are they doing now? You'd think Gavin would be smart enough to keep quiet. That's what the Dahlias are doing.

*He shakes his head, not liking this at all, rubbing the back of his neck, looking thoughtful*
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Facepalmprofesseurdeloi on April 23rd, 2008 08:11 pm (UTC)
*He's quiet for a little while, considering what he should say and what he should not. Finally he leans back on his hands and looks over at Wright*

One of them tried to injure, if not murder, his own brother. That same one... interfered with the teenage Klavier. I had to involve the Kristoph who made this room in both those incidents, unfortunately. I hope that it will not be something to add to my list of regrets in the future.

...Of the others - I do not know. I suspect that he does, however.
hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 08:30 pm (UTC)
*Somehow, he's not surprised that Gavin would try to injure or murder his brother. The version of him that he knew was a cold blooded killer. If he could kill a child...

I would put him on the same level as Dahlia. Cold, calculating, charming, and would rip your heart out and eat it that helped them.

*The way Edgeworth words himself makes Phoenix feel as if there's something he's not talking about and the question is why?*

And what do you mean interfered? Is Klavier okay?

Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loiprofesseurdeloi on April 23rd, 2008 08:46 pm (UTC)
*He nods, thoughtfully*

Before I came here, I only knew of Gavin from news reports... and as the person who lost Wright his badge. *There's a slight narrowing of the eyes at that* If anything, what I have heard here has made me even more inclined to dislike him.

*He falls quiet for a while at the question. There are things he has wondered about this Wright, and it bothers him a little to discuss this. He looks back at the sunset, trying to give Wright the space to react to his words*

He manipulated and seduced him into his bed, Wright. Luckily the boy is resilient, but it has affected him deeply, of that I am sure.

I'm not surprised, Edgeworth.

He's quiet, his face betraying his emotions, pain and something close to panic. There's a flash of anger, though he isn't sure who he's even directing it at and then nothing. He looks up, losing himself in thought for several minutes*

I'm sure he'll get through it.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Glasses Downprofesseurdeloi on April 23rd, 2008 10:17 pm (UTC)
I know he will. I also know that it will have far-reaching consequences for him and for others.

*He doesn't look around, but he takes his cigarettes from the breast pocket of his shirt as he speaks, extracts one and taps it on the pack before lighting it, then holding the pack out to Wright. His voice is quiet, still.*

He came back, Wright. As an adult.

hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 10:21 pm (UTC)
*He's glad Edgeworth isn't looking at him as his hands are shaking, though he can't and won't pinpoint why, taking one of the offered cigarettes. Putting it into his mouth unlit and closing his eyes*

How is he?

Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Grey Suitprofesseurdeloi on April 23rd, 2008 10:26 pm (UTC)
Surprisingly well, considering.

He has... someone that he cares for a great deal and that knows about his past.

It's not the future that I know he hoped for as a teenager. But it seems to be a happy one, nonetheless, and one in which he is aware of his own brother's tendency to crime.

*He finally looks round, but quickly and unobtrusively, partly to offer the cigarette lighter to Wright, and partly to check on him*
hobophoenix on April 23rd, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC)
*Nodding, he takes the lighter, meeting Edgeworth's eyes for a second before he looks away. It takes him two tries to light the cigarette and he inhales too quickly, still not used to the stronger brand. He coughs, leaning forward, bowing his head. It's obvious, that little check back was rather telling, that somehow, somewhere, he gave something away and Edgeworth suspected or knew. He thinks back, trying to remember. The maze and the after effect of it and the room he created come to mind and thanks someone somewhere that Miles hadn't been the one with him at the time*

*He hears Wright cough and can't help a small, swift smile at it, despite the fact that the glance round and that brief look into the other man's eyes was enough to confirm his suspicions.*

I wish I had brought some beer. It might help you with that cough, Wright.

*He manages a weak smile when the coughing finally stops*

There's enough bars in this place if you're thirsty.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Look To Sideprofesseurdeloi on April 24th, 2008 12:56 am (UTC)
None of them have a view as pleasant as this one, however.

*The tone of Wright's voice encourages him to look round at the other man properly this time, and with a slight smile as he swiftly changes the subject*

I trust that I will not be subjected to your curiosity about weather control this evening?

hobophoenix on April 24th, 2008 02:14 am (UTC)
Maybe we can conjure up a few?

*There's a teasing smile on his lip though it doesn't quite reach his eyes*

I haven't decided yet. Ask me again later.
