     General Fics 

Sir Prosecutor by EmeraldWings1992

  • Recommended by: Furor Nocturna
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Now free of the hypnotic spell of Laboreum, Zacharias Barnham decides he wants to continue being an Inquisitor, or, more correctly, a Prosecutor. After many long years of studying law, he moves to Los Angeles and begins working under Chief Prosecutor Miles Edgeworth. But how will he do on his first case… when he has to prosecute Luke Triton, going against Phoenix Wright?
  • Comments: Everyone is in-character, the interactions are spot-on, and the entire plot feels like an unreleased DLC or Special Episode. The way the author delves into Barnham's psyche and his internal conflict throughout the case and trial, as well as the mentor-mentee relationship he has with Edgeworth is highly compelling.

The Dead We Love by mangaluva

  • Recommended by lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: ...are not so far away. At least, they're not while Professor Layton, Luke and Flora are visiting Kurain Village. Contains Unwound Future spoilers.

Phoenix Wright Walks Into a Bar by Candaru

  • Recommended by lalalei2001
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Phoenix Wright walks into a bar... and finds someone he'd never expect to. (Oneshot, no slash, rated T for alcohol and canon death mentions. Set after PL vs AA, Spirit of Justice, and Unwound Future.)

     Crossover Fics 

The Earth King Has Invited You to Labyrinthia by Charon the Sabercat

  • Recommended by: Furor Nocturna
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: They had all awoken in this strange village, this throwback to the 100 Year War, with a feeling. Professor Layton and Luke with pounding heads and a drive to crack open the dark secrets of this place. Phoenix Wright and Maya with work to do and a terrifying suspicion that they weren't long for this world… (set in the Avatar: The Last Airbender universe)
  • Pairings: Slow Burn Layton/Phoenix
  • Tags: AU
  • Comments: Not only are the three universes meshed very well together into one, the story alterations and thrilling new twists bring to life a thrilling reimagining of the game's adventure. The author's greatest forte is character development and interaction. For those who viewed Espella's character in the game as rather plain, flat, and/or annoying, she is highly revamped into a much more involved character and is FAR less helpless than she was in the game, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. From the further actualized dynamics between the main characters to the gripping suspense, to laugh-out-loud humor, vivid imagery and kick-ass action, it's one hell of a ride beginning to end. A very underrated fic that deserves so much more love!
