Career Day "Roxanne please! Don't make me do this by myself!" Megamind begged holding onto his wife's hand as she raced to grab her purse.
"Megamind you'll be just fine." She said, giving him a smile. "Now let my hand go. I need to go to work and you need to get Claire ready for school." He began to stutter trying to convince her to stay so she grabbed his face and gently squeezed it. "Megamind. You are a super genius. Going to Career Day for your daughter is a small task compared to taking down the Doom Syndicate! You can do this!" she finished giving him a kiss. As she was rushing out the door she called back "I laid Claire's clothes out on her bed for you! Do not where your cape, collar, or spikes!"
"What!?" he cried.
"I love you!" she called before shutting the door.
Megamind stared at the door for a few minutes before processing what she said. Looking over to the clock, his eyes widened; 7:35. Claire's
Snow Day "Hurry up daddy!!" Claire cried as she jumped up and down in her haste to get out of the lair. It was more of a really big house now, but still. She was a bit sad that Minion couldn't come with them, but Megamind still had to fix his indoor heating system.Snow Day4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"I'm coming!" Megamind cried back as he wrapped his black and blue striped scarf around his neck. Megamind was sporting thick dark jeans with a black shirt and sweater. He wore a long heavy black jacket, his black cloves, (minus the spikes) his boots, and his brand new dark blue snow hat. He was quite warm and where they were headed that was a good thing.
"The snow's not going anywhere, Claire, relax." Roxanne said as she came into the hall pulling on her red gloves with white fur at the end. Roxanne was wearing her 'Santa shirt' as Claire called it. It was a dark red turtleneck sweater with a hood that had white fur laced around the edge of her hood. Her coat was a long thick white one that Megamind had bought her last year

Megamind blew it off, placing the ray next to him on his table. "Enough Minion. We have a shedule to keep!"
"Schedule, Sir." Minion corrected.
Megamind ignored him asking "Is the destruct-o-tron ready?"
Minion sighed "Yes, Sir."
"Good. Now go get Roxanne." Megamind commanded.
Minion tried one last time to deter him "Sir, why don't you take a sick day? Seeing as how this is your job, so to speak, you can call in sick!"
Megamind glared at him "Evil does not take sick days Minion, now go get Miss. Ritchi!"
"Fine." Minion sighed before grabbing the spray can and heading to the reporter's apartment.

"Minion, can we please leave?" Megamind begged. They were at the thrift store where Minion was feeding his obsession; fish bowls.
"Sir, we just got here and besides," Minion said turning to him "we went to Lowes and Sears. Now it's the thrift store then the Kitchen Corner."
Megamind looked at the creepy cat woman, behind the counter, who owned the store. "Can we just leave? That woman over is giving me the cripes!"
"The creeps, Sir."
"That one too."
Minion rolled his eyes as the woman started to hiss. Megamind and Minion looked at her. "Yeah we can leave."
72. Mischief Managed
"Time to go back to jail, Megamind." Metro Man said, dropping the blue villain next to the police.
Megamind smiled despite being carted off to jail "I promise it won't be a long stay."
Metro Man ignored him saying "Mischief managed."
Roxanne looked at him from where she had been set down before rolling her eyes a bit. "I must say a job well done!" She said at last.
"Well, all in a day'
At A Loss As Roxanne walked up to the once evil lair, she hoped she looked alright. She had on regular jeans, her sneakers, a pretty, light blue shirt that had ruffles along the neckline, and a dark brown jacket on. She sighed 'Oh well'. She entered the lair with a happy smile only to have it replaced by shock as a brain-bot zoomed past her almost hitting her in the head. Once it saw who she was, however, it zoomed back and started to move its body like it was wagging its tail while making a sort of metal barking sound that also came with a happy panting (if it could breath). Roxanne laughed and petted the little robot on the head, its blue electricity chasing her fingers "Did you miss me?" she asked as it barked again. Only when it got enough praise from her did it resume what it was doing and go on it's marry way. She watched it disappear before fully entering the lair. She was greeted with a site that she had grown to love, brain-bots zooming through the air, Minion doing hiAt A Loss4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

This time, Roxanne's hand touched only "Bernard'"s hand, and the watch made no noise, didn't move, and stayed stationary. When they released, they smiled and looked into each others' eyes with love. Roxanne knew this was the man she wanted to be with forever.The Disguise, Chapter One4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Roxanne looked down at the ring on her finger for perhaps the hundreth time that night, running her fingers over the strange stone just to make sure it was really there. Roxanne didn't know why Bernard had given her a ruby with a sapphire swirl as an engagement ring instead of a diamond, but she loved it far more than she ever would have loved a regular diamond.
Any man could think to get their fiancé a diamond ring, but only Bernard would give her something so wonderful, so unique, and so beautiful. She never wanted to take it off, ever, and she turned and told him that.
Megamind's Valentines Megamind slowly crept off his hover bike and onto her balcony. Minion fell in beside him just as quiet. The blue Villain smiled at how ingenious his plan was. It was so perfect even she had to believe it would work. He pulled out his De-gun and wrapped his long fingers around the glass door that led into her apartment. He pulled the door open ever so quietly and stepped inside.Megamind's Valentines4 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Everything was silent except for running water telling him that she was in the kitchen. He was about to make a grand entrance when something grander happened. "SHIT!" Roxanne cried. Megamind and Minion were so surprised to hear this they simply stood there for a moment looking towards the kitchen. They didn't have much time to do anything else however, because Roxanne came racing into her living room, where they were, carrying books, magazines, socks and a clicker. She didn't even make a note to look up before she sighed. "Ugh! Could you guys not kidnap me today! I'm ki

Megamind was sitting on his chair thinking. He was terribly bored and wanted something to do when suddenly, an idea came. He sat up straight "Minion!"
"Quick, write this down!"
Minion nodded and went to write it down, but he couldn't find a pen and paper. "I can't find anything to write with."
"Minion, hurry up!!"
Minion went as fast as he could but when he came back, all he had was a dull purple pencil. "Here you go, Sir!"
Megamind took the pencil and paper than cried "Where's the sharpener?!"
"We don't have one!"
"Get me a knife!"

Roxanne walked out onto her balcony, not caring that the wind whipped around her, freezing her to the core. She looked up at the sky 'I miss you.' She thought. After nothing came she asked silently 'Can you hear me?'
Suddenly, she felt a blanket wrap around her shoulders. Turning to the side, she saw Megamind smiling sweetly. Not able to hold them back anymore, she let the tears fall

"I need to find a way to get my social life going." Megamind said to his friend one day.
Minion thought "Well, you can try out for the football team." He offered with a smile.
"Good idea, Minion." Megamind said smiling. "I'll try a sport. Perhaps I'll try that game called Football that Metro Dude plays."
Over the next few weeks Megamind and Minion worked to try and get Megamind in shape.
When tryouts came he was utterly pulverized. Lying on the ground Minion walked up to him "Maybe you should just be the water boy for the basketball team."
52. Deep in Thought
Megamind had a rather large dilemma on his hands. He was in the lair, deep in thought, trying to find a way to solve his problem. How could he make this right? He sighed loudly then finally called out to his best friend "Minion!"
"Yes, Sir?" Minion called from somewhere in the lair.
"How am I supposed to be Metrocity's new hero when I still have all my evil inventions!?"
Minion came around the corner

Roxanne felt old.
With a heavy sigh, she rubbed the back of her neck and felt her long hair get tangled between her fingers. She grunted softly in annoyance as she tried to separate her hand, but it kept proving to be futile. Her friends finally broke from their 'deep' conversation on who was dating whom and stared at her in amusement. She glared at them. "What?" she asked in a sarcastic manner.
"You should get your hair cut." Friend one said. Friend two nodded in agreement. Since Roxanne entered high school, she kept telling her friends she would chop her hair off- leave it short like a boys. However, her parents refused to let her do such a thing. And thus- her dream hair cut died very early.
The annoyed teen shrugged her shoulders and managed to remove her

Roxanne smiled, looking at Megamind and Minion talking to one another. She couldn't help but think how wonderful her life turned out to be. Well, she had a lot of living yet to do, but so far, it was a great life.
"Sir! It's my turn to play!"
"Minion! It is my game, so it's my turn!"
"You've been on it for an hour! It is my turn!"
Roxanne sighed as they continued to fight. So that's what they were doing.
Okay, so maybe it wasn't a perfect fairy tale, but it was still a dream come true to her.
Sometimes Megamind talked too much. Now Roxanne liked to hear him speak about his inventions and she loved to see how happy it made him, but sometimes he just started to ramble. It wasn't long before she learned just what to do in these situations. First she would try to get his attention by talking, but that never worked, at least when he was on a roll. Next she would try to hold his hand, but that also never worked. The thing she knew always worked was a ki

"Alright Minion," Megamind said looking to his friend "when I give the signal, flip the switch."
"You got it, sir!" Minion said, nodding as he got ready.
Megamind fiddled with his machine for a few more minutes. Finally he turned his head and pulled one of the many strings tight saying "Now, Minion!"
Minion flipped the switch turning the machine on. Both aliens then ran as fast as they could, outside the lair. There, fireworks were then promptly released and a large banner reading 'Happy Fantastic Birthday Megamind' flew up.
Megamind looked up at it, smiling happily "Good teamwork, Minion!"

"Coming." Minion said behind him. Megamind turned around and was a bit shocked at what he saw. Minion wasn't smiling, he was barley swimming, his fins were drooped to the side, his eyes were puffy and watery, his scales looked red and inflamed and every so often he would gasp at the top of his dome.
"Minion what's wrong with you?!" Megamind asked worriedly.
"Nothing, I'm perfectly-" he then started to cough. Megamind watched anxiously until he stopped "-fine." He finished with a weak smile.

"That's great, Sir!" Minion said back just as happy, although he had know idea what it was or how it worked. He was happy because Megamind was happy.

All It TakesSometimes Megamind wondered how it all happened. It's not as if he planned on falling in love with the reporter he routinely kidnapped. Of course, he knew that she was very attractive by human standards, and certainly by his own, but initially Roxanne was just a pawn. Megamind saw her as a means to get to MetroMan, and as usual, he was right. Steal the woman, hide her, gloat and banter, and then cue the ensuing battle that ends in inevitable failure. All of that was perfectly clear to Megamind. But what he didn't understand was at which point did he stop seeing her as bait and start seeing her as the woman he loved?All It Takes4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Perhaps it was because she was the only other human he was connected to, besides the Warden and his prison family, which was touch and go at best. Although unwillingly, Roxanne spent alot of time in Megamind's company. It was nice to know that someone would talk to him, even if it was mainly disparaging comments directed at him.

Normally, the insistent barking of his brain bots was swiftly appeased by tossing a random tool he didn't need at that particular moment. Their chatter would fade to the other end of the Lair, allowing him a few more minutes of work before they would either return, or (if Daddy had run out of patience) find some other chore to perform. It seemed like an odd programming choice for a fleet of robotic drones, but Megamind stood by his ingenuity. His brain bots were attentive, loyal, and could coordinate a laser-light show complete with fog in under four minutes - ergo, the perfect assistant!
Except for today, it seemed. Megamind had been poring over blueprints for a while; he was so wrapped up in his work, he'd thrown three wrenches, four pencils, and a broken keyboard at a persistent brain bot before realizing it hadn't left at all. He finally glanced up with a frown, opened his mouth to berate the disobedient machine

"You can't trap justice! It's an idea; a belief!" Metro Man told Megamind.
"But even the most heartfelt belief can be corroded over time!"
"Justice is a non-corrosive metal!"
"But metals can be melted by the heat of ravahnge!"
"It's revenge, and it's best served cold!"
"But it can be easily reheated, in the microwave of evil!"
"Well, I think your warranty is about to expire!"
Megamind: UnpredictableMegamind sighed. Two weeks had passed since he had saved the city from Titan, and still people were swarming him when he stepped outside. It had gotten so bad he had put on his holo-watch and changed into Bernard, just for the chance to walk the town peacefully. He blended in and he liked it. That was how he had ended up sitting on the park bench the very same park that he had spent time lying under a tree with the one woman who made him question his life of villainy altogether head resting in his hands. It was good to get away from it all and just be alone; Minion was his best friend, but there were times when the little fish could get annoying.Megamind: Unpredictable4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

After brushing his teeth, Megamind walked back into the office. Looking around at all his stuff, that he stole, he sighed. Now what? He ordered one of his brain-bots to set up the TV they had stolen so he could watch. For a villain he seemed to be drowning in his own self pity along with a bit of gilt over what he had done. Turning it to channel 8, he started to watch Roxanne. "He was always there for us. Dependable. Perhaps we took her for granted. Maybe we never know how good we have it until it's gone."

The texting session had begun when Roxanne had checked her phone that morning to find a text from her favorite blue hero. The subject was entitled, "Watching Television", which to Roxanne had come to mean a question was forthcoming (television, other than the news channels, never ceased to confuse Megamind, what with "reality" shows, PBS specials he found to be insulting to the intelligence of a child, and documentaries of "false" things Megamind had long proven to be true). The first message read, "What is this 'One Thing' I keep hearing these women say is all men want?"
Roxanne had quickly texted back, "Shouldn't you know?" Megamind must have been right on top of Bernard's phone at the time (he never had given it back), because his return was swift in its coming.
