peter's sassy research

Conflict of Interest, 1/4

Conflict of Interest, by kishmet. Lawyer AU, Atobe/Ryoma, R. 35,500 words total. Written (over an extended period of time) for hikaridonya's prompt: Innocent. For Donya, of course, and also for scorch66 and roseofthine, who followed this fic in comments most or all of the time while it was being written. Atobe is on trial, and the only one who can prove him innocent is Ryoma, a prosecutor with a personal vendetta against the defendant.

Disclaimer: The legal system in this fic is based on the one in Phoenix Wright, meaning it makes no sense whatsoever. It's a bastardization of the United States court system, based on the Phoenix Wright games and all the episodes of Law and Order: SVU I've ever watched. Any accuracy on my part is purely a coincidence. :P Edited a bit from the original for continuity issues.
