I always wondered wat was going to happen after the movie. I mean. "Hey people of Metrocity, I killed your hero but it seems like you're fine with it. So yah, let's do the dougie! Hit the beat, Michael Jackson!" It didn't really make much sense D: But if you put this story between the defeat of Hal and the opening of the Megamind Museum, then it makes TOTAL SENSE.
Also, when Roxanne's coworkers were telling her that she said something was wrong, I couldn't immediately think about it. So I stopped and tried to predict where the story was going. THEN IT HIT ME. She probably said 'Metrocity'. Then I looked back at the previous dialogue and I SAW IT! I NEVER FELT SOOO RIGHT! But I guess I didn't notice it the first time coz my brain probably categorized Metrocity as correct and Metro City as wrong.
AAANND, I was having a hard time placing the reasoning for this title. AND THEN I READ THE LAST PART AND I'M LIKE "DUDE WAT TOOK YOU SO LONG, I WAITED FOR LIKE, FOREVER!"
I know words can't impart just exactly how beautiful this is so I'll just... go now... *whispers* UR AWESOME

Amazing, truly amazing

Aw...this is so cute! I enjoyed this fic a lot, the characters are very much so in character and it's a nice way to look at the plot post-movie. It's a good analysis of how people will react and what consequences Megamind has to face for his villainous ways.

Just discovered this. I like it a lot. You've got the characters in character, a nice clear plotline, and plenty LOLs! Great job!

That was absolutely fantastic. Great story, great writing, adorable ending.

Excellent work. Nobody is comically stupid; the 'intervention' scene is particularly realistic-feeling, and the Roxanne/Megamind scenes are sweet.
I like how you phrase things, like the bit where Minion whispers 'in case he might scare off her idea, or she herself'. A unique, funny way of looking at things! _
I'm glad you have Roxanne consulting lawyers, rather than suddenly being a legal expert. Someone on called Sevandor1 came up with the idea that Metro Man 'lost his powers' too, which strikes me as a beautifully neat way to solve the problem of Megamind's unearned murder rap.
For constructive criticism, the only thing that bothered me was when you had Roxanne notice disguised Minion's hand felt strange. In the Megamind LiveJournal community there have been a lot of thoughtful discussions about the nature of the disguise watch, and the consensus seems to be that the watch actually changes the wearer's outer form to match the projected form, (don't ask me how the physics work) since Megamind was able to wear a bike helmet that ought to have been far too small to fit. And Roxanne didn't notice spikes or leather when she held his hand on the park blanket.
Other than that, I applaud you for a job well done. Now I'm off to see if you have any other fics...

Nicely done ;] I like the idea with the interview ;]
| Kaeru Lapin chapter 1 . 9/3/2011
Even when the context of the story has been used in several fics before, I found this one pretty mature and credible. Specially how you portrayed the characters.

-cackles in a delighted fashion- Well, that was absolutely lovely. And I'm particularly happy with how you solved the situation: "After Megamind's death-ray stripped me of my powers..."
I was actually thinking of using that concept for a separate fanfic (MetromanXOC, since there are so few of those...that actually work), so kudos to you for great minds thinking alike and all that Jazz. Also, the mix of cheese and sincerity was fun, particularly when it came to the interview versus Roxanne's interactions with Megamind.
Welcome back again!

This was adorable and funny and sweet, and I love it to bits! The cheesy "interview" had me giggling like an idiot, and you captured Roxanne here so well! I love how determined and focused she is!
I really hope you end up writing more for Megamind. You're great at it!
