Good humor and emotions, and very interesting use of shifting perspectives.
Good and bad easily mingle in your stories, don't they? Makes for interesting combinations though.
Shego is just very unfortunate with names, or so it seems. Nice work on the name giving.
keep up the good writing,

I'm actually a big fan of Kigo. But this is wonderful. I've never thought of putting those two together. I really like it.

I like that last little bit where "shego' realizes she has become 'Elvira Mistress of the dark' and somehow i think you planed it that way too... good job!

OK...so, I realize you wrote this a quiet awhile ago. Having said that, I need you to know that I LOVE it. If there was something beyond love that would be the word to use. AMAZING!

the way Betty defined her life in the first few paragraphs was really a new insightful take on Betty's character. I like the way it turned out. I have never actually considered that before. :D

hm I'm really fond of the name 'Elly' _ it reminds me of a video game for the playstation called xenogears. well anyways, I like Shego and Betty's dialogue here. Especially the bet that if Betty told anyone that Shego was there no one would believe and just up her meds. XD
the way that they seem pleasant at first then kind of escalate into tension was very well done too. i like how Betty originally wanted to thank Shego, but ended up saying the wrong thing. ; it makes for an awkward situation, but it helps me feel for them as characters slowly moving out of character. :D
The way Betty is narrating this kind of makes me feel like she's telling someone all this, but I highly doubt it's Shego's she's telling. It makes me wonder who. o.O
Well I'll just keep reading. :D

Whew! Now that I finally have some time, I can't wait to get back to this! :D
I enjoyed this chapter, I like how you portrayed Betty as being an amazing person w/o super powers! I mean the whole line:
My normal days are close to eighteen hours and I can, if the occasion requires it, go as long as seventy hours without sleep and still be performing at a high level
had me thinking wow, Betty is amazing!
However the way Will was acting kind of made me...well dislike him a little. ; He's like...I don't know what you were going for, but he was very detached and I guess that's how he is in the Kim Possible cartoon, but he seemed robotic in this chapter. I think that was done masterfully. It was like this is the very reason Kim finds working with him so irritating. :D
Oh and I *loved* the way Betty spotted Shego was very cool too. and I think I almost died laughing when she was wrong about Shego's location too. :D I think I really liked the interaction between the two. well the set up of interaction in the next chapter anyways.
This is so promising for interesting, I can't wait to finish reading it. :D

Alright great ending for Act I. I really liked the writing style of this act. At first I was a little put off by the idea of having to read a first POV narrative, but as the chapters continued (chapter 2), the prospect of Shego actually telling the story made this fic much more interesting. Also the hinted way Shego spoke to the person, the reader, was very intriguing. Finally in chapter 3 the identity of the mystery crush of Shego is revealed which provided a wonderful shock to the reader. Then the final chapter of this Act ends the narrative in a beautiful turn of events. :D
*pats on the back* Splendid job! I absolute loved the way Betty slowly started remembering Shego's story. I have to say, that you incorporated season 4 flawlessly. :D I especially enjoyed Will's status report of telling Betty she was in fact hit by a truck. XD But most of all, I love that Shego is still at large, but not eagerly pursued. It really leaves the second Act open for anything! I can't wait!

W00t! *dances* You sir are an amazing author and I am very honored to say I am your friend. _ If I could I would fave this and give it hundreds of points and everything! But I can't so I'll just have to do something else. XD
I think the thing I love the most about this story thus far is that it makes sense. I mean Kim and Shego has an age difference, and I have always thought that if there is Kigo, then why now make it more equal in age and maturity, and have a Shego Betty pairing. I like it, I think it works. Especially how some people think of Kim as a mini Betty. I suppose what really pushed me to think this way is Season 4 of Kim Possible. I was totally disturbed that Kim and Ron is now cannon, I had to seriously re-work a lot of my comic Rubicon. _ Well anyways, what I'm trying to say is that this is something that has re-energized me and I'm liking the idea of Bego more and more. _
:hug: this is some au'some writing my friend, and I am so glad that you have given me a link. I think if I had waited till classes were out, I'd be reading this much later than I am now. :0

I liked the idea that Shego has been trained before, and I absolutely love the fact that it was Shego's first crush and someone that she still did not obtain. :D I think that a lot of times writers try to make the first crush magical and such. So I rather enjoy the idea of a progression of infatuation. :)
I also liked the theme of Shego telling all this to someone. The reader can easily feel that Shego is giving a personal biography and I am enjoying it immensely. Also the identity of Shego's dream girl is rather mysterious. :D I would like to assume it is Kim, but I won't. I am actually hoping it's going to be Dr. Director *since you did give me a link* and on a side note, I love the idea of Shego crushing on Betty. :D I had this idea two years ago to go with the pairing, but I was out of time and I never did anything with it. Well anyways, enough of my ramblings, I need to read the next chapter while I still have some time!

wow this first chapter has really painted a unique picture of Shego's life. I mean stuck in Canada? Then the bear thing, wow Shego is such a survivor. :D I am a little embarrassed to admit that I'm terribly slow at getting all read up, I was saving it for the Holidays ; but I just had to check this out!
For a first chapter you have really captured my interest. From all the culture references of Star Wars, and Spiderman, and other I'm sure, this is kept me entertained. What I like the most of this is the easy flow of the story. Usually I try to stay away from first person POVs but this has been a nice treat, and I enjoyed it very much. I suppose one of the largest pet peeves I have encountered with firs person POV stories is that it is very limiting in telling the story. Well anyways this is a nice first chapter, and I can't wait to read the next chapter. :D

I should seen that comung! Elvira, Mistress of the Dark? Cass is probably laughing all the way...
Don't keep me in suspense! I'd like to hear what the 'others' have to say about this relationship! What would Drew's reaction be? Kim and Ron's?
Keep up the great work!

It's taking a definite interesting, but nice, turn.
Nice to see Sheldon and Betty finally able to work out their differences.
Too bad beauracracy is casuing too many problems for Betty...
Betty finally realizes that Shego loves her. Too bad there aren't any cacti hanging around...
