MegaTheme 14: Multitasking
Roxanne awoke to the sound of typing, humming, and the electronic beeping noises of a computer. Her eyes opened, and before her, she saw Megamind sat at his desk. But what she witnessed impressed her.
Megamind was typing on two different computers, connected to two different screens, and his eyes passed between each one so quickly she was surprised how he could keep up. And on top of that, he was humming a tune.
That head was big for a reason.
She would have suspected him of showing off...but he didn't know she was awake, and there was no one else around to show off to. Not even Minion but then again, the fish had probably seen this hundreds of times, so that wouldn't count if he was present.
His eyes glanced over at her, and noticing her awake, he smiled it was the usual smile, forced, whenever he was trying to act evil.
"Miss Ritchi! Glad you're awake!"
He finished off what he was doing without even looking and turned his full attention on her. And on top of that, he di
MegaTheme 5: Waiting
The lair was silent as the three waited.
Roxanne was tied to her chair once more, one leg crossed over the other while she looked at something rather interesting on the ceiling. Minion was stood behind her, twiddling his fingers patiently.
Megamind was, at first, spinning in his chair, but then he began to tap his foot impatiently, followed by an exaggerated sigh.
"What's taking that big oaf so long?" he demanded.
Roxanne rolled her eyes.
"I told you already; he's helping with an evacuation in Japan. One of the volcanoes is about to erupt," she explained.
"And that's more important to him rather than saving his girlfriend?" the alien questioned.
"I'm not his girlfriend."
"Sure you're not."
Roxanne, once again, rolled her eyes.
"Besides, both he and I know that you'll never really hurt me," she said. "And now would be the perfect time to take over the city; but instead, you're waiting for him to come back."
Megamind opened his mouth to banter back, but closed it again when he found noth
MegaTheme 34: Out Cold
When Megamind awoke, there was an ice pack upon his head, strapped in the place where the dull aching pain was admitting from. He groaned.
The alien looked to the side, and from around the corner Minion appeared, looking a little worried, but now relieved to see that his master had awoken.
"Are you all right, sir?" he asked.
"Yes," replied Megamind, as he sat up on the couch. "What happened?"
"Miss Ritchi kicked you in the head, sir," the fish explained. "You've been out cold for an hour."
Megamind groaned again. I knew I shouldn't have checked her out. Not that I could resist...
"Where is she now?"
"I took her home."
The alien nodded.
"OK, good," he said. "But next time, Minion? Tie her legs together. And to the chair."
MegaTheme 8: Kick in the Head
"And what's more, Miss Ritchi, is that you can put a stop to this," Megamind continued, after explaining his evil plan. "Just agree to be my Evil Queen, and I will leave your boyfriend alone and this city."
Roxanne rolled her eyes; first he impressed her, then he made a fool of himself with the chair, and now he was giving her the Evil Queen lecture again.
On a Sunday morning too.
"After all, you're a fine...specimen," he said, his green eyes staring at her legs.
Her jaw dropped. That's it!
"You don't have to give me your answer now!" he continued. "In fact, why don't you give it after I've shown you the power I have-"
He was cut off when her leg came up and kicked him in the head.
MegaTheme 39: Through the Fire
Roxanne coughed as the smoke swirled around her, and behind her, she could hear the crackling flames as they consumed the Lair and everything Megamind had created. She had left the ropes and the kidnapping chair behind, and was trying to find her way out.
The kidnapping had gone as it had usually gone until Megamind's newest creation had exploded. Roxanne had been able to wriggle from her bonds. She briefly wondered what had happened to Megamind and Minion. A feeling of dread passed through her at the thought of the blast killing them; despite the fact that they had kidnapped her too many times to count...she didn't wish for them to be dead. They didn't deserve it. In reality, they really were quite harmless.
She tried to crawl across the floor, holding her breath for as long as she could, but eventually she had to breathe and the smoke entered her system. The woman coughed again, and fell to the floor as her vision became clouded. She tried to get up, determined to make it out
MegaTheme 21: Obsession
Roxanne knew there were plenty of other women in the city, and that she wasn't the most gorgeous looking out of all of them...and yet, she had three guys obsessing over her, two of which weren't even human. And the third was just a creep.
She used to wonder why she couldn't find a normal guy to be with, but this desire soon faded when she discovered that normal was boring. Imagining a life with a normal guy just didn't work; there wouldn't be enough excitement in her life, and she wouldn't stick around for very long.
But what did the three un-normal guys see in her? That was what she wanted to know. Did they see the same as the other did, or were they attracted to different qualities? She wanted to find out.
Roxanne decided to bring up the topic when she and Hal were setting up for an interview with Metro Man. The red head was setting up the camera while Roxanne was reading over her questions, giving them a last minute edit.
"Why do you like me?" she asked, trying not to
MegaTheme 16: Eyes
"Put your red dress on."
Roxanne gave her mother a look.
"Why that one?"
"You have four dresses, honey," she said. "One's red, one's purple, one's green and one's blue. Blue is his colour, and purple's too close to it."
"What about the green one?"
"His eyes," her mother said with irritation. "Come on, Roxanne. You've been kidnapped by him many times. You should know what colour his eyes are."
Roxanne did know. But she liked the colour of his eyes. There were so green...so vibrant... She wanted to tell her mother that she liked his eyes and she liked the colour of his skin too, for that matter but she knew it wouldn't be worth it.
"Mother, it doesn't matter what I wear," the young woman insisted.
"Yes it does," her mother said back. "When you're a reporter, looks always matter. It shows what side you're on. Do you want people to think you're on his side?"
Roxanne was very tempted to say 'yes', but knew she didn't have time.
"Fine, but only because I have to be at the museu
MegaTheme 6: Danger Ahead
The car drove right past the sign, and Roxanne managed to look behind her from her position in the front seat. Her hands were tied, preventing her from whacking her kidnapper for ignoring the sign.
"You did read that sign, right?" she asked.
"Miss Ritchi, I read that sign before you did," he explained, before tapping his large head with a finger. "My head is big for a reason; it can read things faster than a mere human could."
"Well, that "brilliant" brain of yours obviously didn't read the sign properly," said Roxanne.
"Oh, you mean the 'Danger Ahead' part?" he said. "Minion put that there to keep people out. There's nothing to worry about."
Five minutes later...
The invisible car was hanging over a cliff, and neither captive nor kidnapper dared to move.
"Nothing to worry about, huh?"
Megamind began to climb into the back seat, only to be interrupted by Roxanne clearing her throat. He looked at her, and she gestured to her wrists. The villain
MegaTheme 19: Annoyance
Watching as the police took Megamind away yet again, Roxanne found herself annoyed by everything. It wasn't unusual; she was always annoyed when it came to the kidnappings, but when she got back to her apartment, it all came pouring out into an open Word document on her laptop.
She was annoyed how Megamind had kidnapped her on her day off, ruining her plans with her friends.
She was annoyed that Minion had ripped her best shirt (she knew it was accidentally, but still).
She was annoyed by the effect the spray had on her.
She was annoyed by how helpless she always felt whenever he kidnapped her.
She was annoyed by his smug grin as he circled her whilst sat in his stupid leather chair.
She was annoyed by how he made her shiver in all the right ways.
She was annoyed at how his plans always seemed to fail when she knew he was capable of far more.
She was annoyed at how she always seemed to get covered in dirt or dust, with bad hair by the end of it.
She was annoyed how he always kept her o
Megamind 100 Word Challenge 871. Obsession
"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'
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
Megamind Genderbent Ch. 10 Randal sighed in frustration as the doorbell to his apartment rang. He got up and walked to the door. Looking in the little eye whole, he rolled his eyes when he saw Megamind looking right back at him. He opened the door, keeping the chain on it, asked rudely "What do you want?"
"Titania's turned evil." Megamind said smushing her face into the little opening the chain offered.
"Congratulations!" Randal said sarcastically "Another one of your genius plans has back fired on you!" Thinking for a moment he then added, annoyed "And why did my doorwoman even let you up?!" Megamind sighed on the other side of the door and held up a small glowing blue cube. "Ah, Carlotta." He said sadly, taking the cube from her.
Suddenly getting angry he pushed the door against Megamind making her cry out "Randal! No, please! I need your help!"
"Why do you need my help?" he snapped.
Megamind Genderbent Ch. 11 Megamind took a city bus all the way to the prison sadly watching the city pass by. When she finally made it back she stepped out of the bus as two officers grabbed their guns looking completely shocked as she walked passed them determined. They escorted her inside where she met the Warden with a sad face. The warden looked at her surprised, but when Megamind held up her hands for her to cuff she nodded and did just that, letting the guards take her back to her cell.
"Unless someone comes to our aid soon, all maybe lost. Thousands have already fled the city in a mass exodus. Remaining citizens are warned to stay indoors until further notice. Authorities have issued a warning to stay out of the downtown area at all costs."
Randal drove as fast as he could down the deserted and burning streets of Metro City. He had to try and do something! Finally he made it to Metro tower where Haley was redesigning the city buildings with her
Sick Day "Sir, I don't think this is a very good idea." Minion said, handing his master their latest weapon. Megamind had woken up this morning sicker than a dog and he still wanted to continue with their plan for today.
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.
TextingRoxanne wondered, with all his genius, if Megamind really knew anything of the modern world.
Sure, he was a genius in all other ways. He built his own evil inventions (well, not so evil anymore), could answer intense mathematical equations at the drop of a hat, and could take apart an army tank piece-by-piece and rebuild it into a rocket. Yet before disguising himself as Bernard, he'd never had a phone. He wasn't sure what 'video games' were and scoffed at the simplicity of them when he did. But the biggest shocker to Roxanne was that before he met her, he'd never known how to text or what a text was.
Yes, Megamind was book smart. But when it came to street smarts, he was lost.
She wondered how someone, in this day and age, could honestly not know what a text was. Whenever she walked down the street or visited a high school for an award story, people were texting or playing games on their phones.&
Sickness is Bliss MM OneshotRoxanne was so excited. Tonight was the night she would finally get to show off her domestic skills in front of Megamind. She let herself into his house-lair- and stacked the paper grocery bags up along the counter. She had a good hour before he would get home, so she allowed herself time to find a good bottle of wine in the pantry and turn on some music. She'd been to his place so many times before, but she'd never had the chance to cook him a good meal.
She pulled out pots and pans and unpacked her groceries. She unwrapped a package of chicken breasts and laid them out in the bottom of a baking pan. Roxanne perused Megamind's pantry until she found a good mix of herbs to season the chicken with. Once she was done, she slid the tray into the oven and set the timer. Since it was too early to start cooking the vegetables she decided to freshen up in anticipation of the night. She walked down the hall to Megamind's bedroom and opened his closet. Several weeks ago the couple decided to st
MegaTheme 35: Spiral
"So Miss Ritchi-" Spin, "you must be wondering-" Spin, "what I have-" Spin, "instore for you-" Spin, "today."
"Seriously, what are you doing?"
Megamind stopped spinning in his chair, giving her a confused look.
"Why Miss Ritchi, I am spinning in my chair!" he informed. "What's the point of having one if you don't spin in it? I will admit, the human race has a slight chance of surviving, considering they invented these things!"
He then spun himself round faster than before, letting out a happy cry.
But it died as he slowed down and saw Roxanne raising an eyebrow at him.
"Um," he said hesitantly, wondering if he should risk injuring her by hitting her with the Forget-Me-Stick. "That doesn't leave the Lair, Miss Ritchi."
She only shrugged. The impressed attitude she had felt towards him earlier was gone.
