IT'S BAR TIME!  
[It's a dive.

Wood flooring, wood paneling on the walls, sunset coming in through the slats in the wooden shades.

There were tables tucked in corners, soft lamps hung overhead, and a long stretch of well-used bar, behind which were rows and rows of bottles.

A ceiling fan was running overhead, casting shadows over the figure sitting at the bar.

Over the radio that was nestled in between the bottles, old music was playing. Soft guitar, something from roughly 20 years ago, augmented with vocals.]

"...so it's not hard to fall, when you float like a cannonball..."

[The man at the bar is just sitting there on a well-worn stool, thinking. There's a glass in his hand, something shining amber at the bottom, with ice in it, but he's not drinking. It's just something to run his hands over as he thinks.]

((ooc: AU!Kris for Prof, but the bar is free for anyone to use~))

*After his conversation with Klavier (rockinglawyer), he badly needs a drink.

It's not until he's already inside that he notices the man already at the bar, and it's not for a few moments more until he realises just who that man is.

By then it's too late to leave without being rather too obvious about it, and since he has no idea which alternate this is, he would rather not draw attention to himself or to the fact that he might know something he should not. He nods politely to acknowledge the other man.*


...Mr Gavin.

Mmm? [it breaks his reverie, and he raises his eyebrows to look the other man over. He knows he's seen him...somewhere, but right now he can't put a name to the face]

Ah, good evening. [a soft smile, and he shifts in his seat slightly] Have we met?
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Sidelong Lookprofesseurdeloi on April 1st, 2008 11:08 am (UTC)
No, we have not. I know you only by reputation, Mr Gavin.

*He doesn't look across at the other man as he speaks, but takes a seat and orders a drink, leaning his elbows on the bar. After a pause he looks across at Gavin.*

My name is Miles Edgeworth. I am a professor of law.

Kristoph Gavin (AU): resigned smilemanagingchaos on April 1st, 2008 11:19 am (UTC)
Ah, so you've heard of the band, then. [a soft smile. He's hoping that's what it is. He reaches into his jacket and pulls out a card, offering it to him]

Ah, I believe I've heard my brother mention your name on occasion. It is a pleasure to finally put a face to it.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: ORLYprofesseurdeloi on April 1st, 2008 02:15 pm (UTC)
*He doesn't take the card, but reads it, arches an eyebrow.*

Interesting. In my world, you are a defence attorney.

*"Were" would be the more appropriate word to use, he supposes. But he sees no benefit in antagonising the man. He looks at Gavin as closely as he did the card - it's not an intrusive examination, but it is direct.*

I assume, then, that your brother is involved in the law. Since I cannot imagine an alternate of mine being involved in entertainment.

*The unlikeliness of that prospect seems to amuse him.*

Ah, well, I am that also, but keeping reign over this motley group is almost more than I can handle alone. I only take on cases that interest me, and only when I'm staying in Los Angeles.

The whole band is involved in law, in some way. It's our...gimmick, I suppose you could say.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Avoidantprofesseurdeloi on April 2nd, 2008 12:12 am (UTC)
And what cases have interested you of late?

*It's an apparently casual question, and he sips his Scotch immediately afterwards, only half-watching the other man*

I'm afraid that I am not very familiar with your band in my own world, though I know of them.

*How could he not, after the scandal surrounding them all?*
Kristoph Gavin (AU): defaultmanagingchaos on April 2nd, 2008 12:32 am (UTC)
There was one, with the designer Armin Delacroix. [a smile, at that. It was a rather sensational case, the publicity not only launched Armin into stardom, but also brought in good publicity for the band] He was accused of murdering one of his models. We've become quite close since it happened, actually.

You aren't? Well, I should hope that you wouldn't mind a song or two sometime? It's all a bit of noise and fury, as it were, but I do enjoy the songs that I play in. They're a bit more...refined.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Chillingprofesseurdeloi on April 2nd, 2008 01:20 am (UTC)
Not one I am aware of, from my own world, although I do try to keep up to date with news from Los Angeles.

I wonder, Mr Gavin... have you spoken to any of your alternates from other worlds, or people that know them?

...my music collection might surprise you. *And he smiles slightly, at that.* I would be most interested to hear some of your work.
Kristoph Gavin (AU): managingchaos on April 2nd, 2008 01:43 am (UTC)
[his expression sobers at that, and he's worrying the glass of scotch]

Indeed, I have. ...it's quite shameful and bothersome, really, that they're nothing but monsters. I came here to think about it.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Chillingprofesseurdeloi on April 2nd, 2008 03:01 am (UTC)
*He wasn't quite sure what he had been expecting, but it's an interesting reaction*

Yes, I can imagine.

*He takes another drink of Scotch, then swirls the liquid in his glass absently*

Your alternate in my world was responsible for a close friend of mine losing his attorney's badge. And for at least two murders.
Kristoph Gavin (AU): managingchaos on April 3rd, 2008 11:18 pm (UTC)
So I've heard. [he sighs] They're nothing but weak-willed fools, trying to convince themselves that they've got their demons under control.

...when, in all actuality, it's quite the opposite.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Grey Suitprofesseurdeloi on April 4th, 2008 02:22 am (UTC)
And you, Mr Gavin? Do you have your demons under control?

*He looks at the other man directly, at that*
Kristoph Gavin (AU): managingchaos on April 4th, 2008 02:26 am (UTC)
As much as any other man might, I suppose. It's foolish to think that there is not a scrap of evil in any person, but it is what we do with it that defines us as human.

I am not a depraved beast, as they are.
Miles Edgeworth, Professeur de Loi: Gaze into Distanceprofesseurdeloi on April 4th, 2008 03:32 am (UTC)
*He's silent for a while, just observing the other man, then he takes a drink of Scotch, before replacing the glass carefully on the bar*

The delusion of control where in reality there is none... that is a seductive path, and one that is far, far easier than facing the consequences of ones actions in the cold light of day.
