MEGA MAN X: THE SOUND OF MAVERICKS

By Erico

A FOREWORD: JUST SO YOU DON'T GET LOST!

Well, congrats! You had enough courage to risk clicking the hyperlink to another heapin' helpin' ever lovin' spoonful of Erico's mythos. And what does that mean?

Hopefully you had the gumption to check out my first two 'Fics before taking on this one. Chronologically, it goes AUF, then EOAD, and lastly this one. If you didn't bother to at least read EOAD, then some of the stuff in here will be really fuzzy. If you did, then you're set!

I could ramble on and on, but I won't do that. I figure I do it enough in my posts, you're here to read the 'Fic.

So I'll set it up for you.

A year after EOAD occurs, concerns are based more on the Hunters than the mavericks. Which can be expected! With no sign of Sigma, or the Maverick Virus itself, things keep pretty quiet. Quiet enough for the biased humans to think, 'How many well armed reploid Maverick Hunters do we need to keep the peace?'

I quote George Carlin here. "After every tragedy, we're told, 'Now the healing can begin.' NO. There is no healing. Just a short pause until the next tragedy." Does this apply? In life and in video games, my friends. And definitely in this 'Fic.

Assumptions have been made over the years. 'Just who is the enemy?' 'Who is to blame for the Maverick Wars?' 'Who keeps getting hot dog to bun ratios all wrong?'

It's time for a change. And as the heroes of the Fifth Maverick Uprising muddle through what seems to be a total mess of things, they will find the single thread of sanity that will give them the answer to this puzzle.

All assumptions and beliefs will change for X and friends. Who is the enemy? What is a maverick? How can you tell a maverick? It's actions? It's looks? Or it's sound?

Well, that's how you get the title for this next leap into the deep end of the pool, my friends. All things will change, for change is the only constant.

And in 'The Sound of Mavericks' this constant change is no different.

So, what are you still doing here? Read on, Macduff! Erico will be waiting for you at the end.
