Ello, my friends! Well… I don't really know any of you. At all. So just… deal with you calling you my friends, okay? It makes me feel happy.

Okay. So, here, our favorite mad scientist (certainly mine – I like his laugh. "MWUAHAHAHAHAHA! …Sorry.") has built a machine to turn him human again.

Something you all must know:

Dr. Cockroach has already built something for Susan to become normal-sized or giant-sized as she wishes. It's a ring, which fits on her pinky finger when she's Ginormica, but when she shrinks to human size, it becomes a necklace. When she's human-sized, the Quantonium is stored in a small crystal that glows blue-green, indicating the presence of the Quantonium. When she's Ginormica, the crystal is white.

You won't see her as Ginormica in this story, however. Just all human-sized. I needed to explain this, 'cuz I feel like some of y'all might get confused.

Also, I'm sticking with the name Insectosaurus instead of Butterflyosaurus. Insectosaurus fits the big bug much better.

Also, I KNOW the president promised them freedom. He's kept his word, but they're still at Area 5*, because General Monger is currently looking for a place big enough for Insectosaurus to live. Even though it doesn't say in the chapter.

Alright, enough with my endless blathering. Onwards to the story.

You want a disclaimer? See my profile.

And this is my first Monsters Vs. Aliens story I didn't decide to trash.

"Will it work?" asked Susan anxiously. She was fingering a necklace, which was (predictably) around her neck. Dr. Cockroach PhD had made it for her nearly a month ago. On the end of it hung a tiny, blue-green crystal.

This necklace held the ability to absorb the Quantonium in her body, or return it, enabling her to grow and shrink at her will. All she had to do was mentally ask, and she could become Ginormica or Susan at a moment's notice.

At this time, she was the size of a normal human being. Which meant it was not the necklace she was asking about…

It was the giant, cylindrical chamber in front of her.

The person whom she was speaking to was none other than the creator of the machine, Dr. Cockroach himself. "It should work. If it does not, the most likely outcome is my being worse off than I was, or death." When Susan looked alarmed, the doctor quickly tried to gloss over his mistake. "But of course," he said hurriedly, "the chances of that happening are quite slim, my dear."

Susan bit her lip. "Okay," she said reluctantly. Behind her, Link and B.O.B. gave Dr. Cockroach the "thumbs up".

Peering through the door with one huge eye, Insectosaurus gave a roar of approval.

Dr. Cockroach nodded once, resisting the temptation to laugh maniacally (it would only scare Susan), and stepped into the chamber. Once inside, he pressed a small button on the right side, and the door swung closed in front of him.

The next thing he felt was considerable pain. It felt like every single atom was being ripped from his body and then being stuffed brusquely back into place again. The sensation lasted approximately 2.3 seconds before coming to an abrupt halt. The door opened on its own accord, and the doctor stumbled out, managing to catch himself before he fell.

Dr. Cockroach straightened up and looked at Susan, who had backed into a wall. Her eyes shone with tears and she had he hand covering her mouth. "Well?" he asked her.

Susan just shook her head, unable to speak.

"What? What is it?" he urged. The doctor turned to B.O.B. and Link, who were gaping at him open-mouthed. Silently, Link just pointed at a mirror that was across the room.

Fearing the worst, Dr. Cockroach slowly moved toward the mirror. As he neared it, he closed his eyes and walked the final steps. Then he opened them.

His mouth dropped open. He tried to scream.

No sound came out.

! …Sorry.

For all you humans know, I've just turned him into a cockroach/stink bug/Japanese beetle! I haven't, of course. I don't even know what he would look like. Hm…

Oh, wow. I just realized what a short chapter this is. It's barely a full page. Maybe the next one will be longer…

So, anyway, what did you think? You likey? You not likey? TELL ME TELL ME TELL ME TELL ME TELL ME! I need to know! If you so desire, I can concoct a second chapter. Possibly a third. Or I can leave the story like this… to make YOU decide what happens to him…

But I sort of want to post the other chappie(s). I already made the second. And I'm in the middle of revising it for posting.

And I've thought of an idea for a sequel! Gosh... I've got to stop planning ahead... XD

So… just tell me what you think. :D

When (and if, though hopefully there isn't an "if") you review, answer me these four questions:

Do you support Dr. CXSusan? Or at least don't mind it? (Just a question. I'm not saying that there's gonna be any, but I'm not saying there won't be :D)

What are two things you like best about Doc?

What do you WANT to happen to him?

What do you THINK will happen to him?

If you get the fourth question somewhat close to what actually does happen to him, then I'll give you digital brownies. Or cookies. And you will earn my respect for being able to see into my braaaaaaiiiinnnn… O.o

Stay tuned for the next chapter. I'm off to ignore you all now.

Please review.
