The Story of Aureus - Part 21
   That night as I lay exhausted and wounded in my tiny bed, I dreamed. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d had one that wasn’t a nightmare and found myself coming up short when trying to go farther back into my history.
   In my dream, I sat on the grass with a small fire burning in the pit front of me and crickets chirping all around me. It was black as night and the stars were out shining with a thousand tiny points of light above me. To my side was propped a single tent made of thick canvas. It wasn’t much, but enough for just myself to curl in the center of several thick blankets.
   It was so unbelievably unusual, in fact, I waited for a while, looking at my wooded surroundings and expecting something horrible to ruin such a pleasant mood. When I found nothing to disturb it, slowly I began to relax and leaned my back against the log behind me. It was a wonderful change of pace from the chaos I was used to experiencing both i

The Story of Aureus - Part 20
I hesitated moving for only a fraction of a second before bolting out the door and making a beeline for the stairs. This was the first time the door had budged, there was no chance in hell I wasn’t taking the opportunity in front of me.
  Taking two at a time I crested the top of the stairs and was immediately blinded by the sight of the sun glaring down on my shoulders. I slowed, shading my eyes. Dirt and rocks were everywhere as I stood in the center of a large boxed in canyon. Above me I could see grass and vines spiraling over the edge of the cliffs and adding a softness to the otherwise bleak and drab dirt flooring. It almost felt like being back in the desert, only now flora and mountains sprawled in the distance around me.
  Adding to the bright light and my sudden distraction by the flora around me, I was welcomed with the sounds of cheering. I looked up and turned to find the source of the noise and found several dozen people standing at the edge of the cliffs,

   The first thing I did was collapse against one of the three stone walls, rubbing my eyes and trying to get them to focus on the world. It was a long, arduous task of opening them for several minutes then letting them rest again before I finally found myself able to keep them open for an extended period of time without pain. How much damage being in the dark for so long could do!
   Once done, I walked the length of my new cell. It seemed to be an ongoing thing recently, me being trapped in a dungeon, only this one was well lit and open to the air, though not to the elements, as the roof was made of solid rock. Even if it smelled like piss and sweat it was refreshing not to smell dampness and mold.
   Beyond the iron bars of the ten by ten cell was a wide stone staircase heading up into a brighter light, stone and wood walls blocking either side. I strained my neck trying to see if anything could give an indication on where I was, but found nothing besid

The Story of Aureus - Part 18
   The darkened dungeon cellar was eerily quiet save for the unvaried plink of dripping water somewhere among its many empty hallways. It had been silent and lonely for several months now, the unrelenting stillness only broken by the maddening drip and the occasional sound of movement; clinking chains or the rough sound of someone shifting uncomfortably on the stone floors as the cell’s only occupant tried, mostly in vane, to keep himself involved with something to keep his mind off the predicament he’d found himself in over the last several. . .
   He thought on the idea of time, down here in the depths of the earth it was hard to tell just how many weeks he had been locked up in this prison. Long enough to find himself on the brink of madness it seemed. His will was strong, but the boredom was enough to drive one crazy.
   There was little light cast about, the only source several small cracks in the huge wooden door at the end of the hall, j

   It was two days later when I finally collapsed in exhaustion. It was a good exhaustion, one that didn’t involve me thinking of anything but the present. My limbs ached, the bottoms of my feet were sore and I felt genuinely tired from activity for the first time in a long time.
   I had been walking night and day, barely without stopping for longer than a half hour to hunt or eat, and I fell to my side on the hard ground with a giant smile on my face. Despite the several dozen nights I had previously spent trying to regain my strength and stamina through running through the empty streets of Eastborne, gravity was now a force of nature that I was more than happy to stop fighting against.
   Briefly, my doubt asked why I was doing this. And again Alecsander’s last words to me echoed in my head. I knew I’d been an idiot. I was still probably being an idiot as I traipsed through the underbrush of a dense forest on my way to a possibly imagi

   Something smashed into footboard of the bed and a second jolt soon woke me in a panic. I sat up, wide eyed in the dark and tried to focus through the haze of sleep what I was hearing around me. There were sounds of struggling and I recognized instantly the labored breath of Aureus’ silent screams on the floor at my feet. Tonight was not the first night he had experienced nightmares, in fact waking up with him flailing about was nothing new, but somehow this seemed different.
   Immediately I jumped from the bed and called him by name, using my hands to guide me to the end of the bed where he lay thrashing at the ghosts of his past.
   “Aureus!” I tried to lean down beside him, to shake him awake and instead let out a startled cry as he pushed me away. I lost my balance and landed roughly on my backside, a rise of panic catching in my chest as I struggled back to my feet.
   I called his name again with more volume and took a

   When I woke, it was morning and my left arm had fallen asleep under my head. I grimaced and sat up slowly as feeling rushed back into the frozen limb, sending the familiar pins and needles into my fingers. They were slow and reluctant to move, as if they had been frozen in place. I gave my hand a shake and soon enough though I had them moving and leaned back in the chair I had fallen asleep in only a few hours before. I had left Alecsander’s chambers sometime in the wee hours of the morning and had wandered down through the library, drained and yet still unable to put my mind to rest. Instead of sleeping or returning back to my little nook between Lykera’s bed and the wall I had simply sat down and tried to put my head in some kind of order. I wasn’t sure if I had accomplished anything in my exhaustive state, but the next thing I had known was this moment now.
   With feeling and a response from my extremities returned, I leaned over the table a

   “So you can take instruction, after all.”
   I made a disgruntled sound through my nose that was as close to a growl as I could manage. To me, it came out sounding more like a wheeze. It seemed to get my message across pretty clearly, though.
   “Alright, I surrender.” Alecsander faced me with a look of genuine sincerity, sitting in a tall backed chair at a dark wooden desk, his hands raised in front of him. Lit by several oil lamps, the room was a stark contrast to the expansive display of electric lights the library below us had to offer. As far as I could tell this room didn’t have a single window, either. “That was beneath me and I apologize.”
   I closed the door behind me and stepped into the room, crossing my arms over my chest. For all his puffery in his role as Master Zander, his living quarters were much more down to earth and rustic; wood paneled walls and dark colours. A fireplace sat again

  As we waited, Lykera turned from me to poke again at one of the books we’d been given to borrow. She was sullen and had no words for me after I had chastised her for prying into Alphonse’s past. I knew by now that curiosity was part of her nature as a Keeper, but it still irked me that her nose refused to stay out of everyone’s business. I wondered then why I couldn’t have just been thankful she was leaving my own past out of her questions and found that I had no answer. Even worse, I wondered suddenly why I’d recently cared so much to decide to question Alecsander about Alphonse’s parents. Was my nature as a do-gooder kicking in again? I had never been this damned righteous in my past. What was suddenly making me give two farts about people I had just met?
  “Where will you go when I decide to return home?”
  The question startled me. I realized she had been talking to me and I had not heard most of what she had been say

Watchers

I recently started up a giant wiki to archive all the Rockman manga (and some art books) out there, now that the fansites are dead and dying. I've scoured the internet since 2003 trying to find as much as I could and put it all in one place. I've tried to give credit where credit is due, but most websites either don't exist or links are broken and people have changed names.

I could really use some help trying to find anything else that is out there that I might have missed. Believe me, I've wandered through some pretty shady places to get all this stuff over time and a lot of it I've forgotten where it was originally. x_x

If anyone spots something that needs credit, or if you have something I don't have listed PLEASE don't hesitate to drop me a line tcatkidna(at)gmail(dot)com
I'm not out to rip people off or steal credit, I'm here to be a table of contents that simply exists to point people in the right directions.
