Author's Notes: Another silly drabble-and-a-half, originally written a while back for the LJ Megamind Community.

Set sometime after the movie, under the assumption that, at some point, Megamind and Metro Man bury the hatchet and work on actually becoming friends.

Of course, that doesn't mean the rivalry is over. After all, the more things change, the more they stay the same . . .

The Pain in Spain is Mainly in Wayne's Brain

by Rummi

"I've never understood your insistence that I adhere to your standard of syllabification anyway," Megamind grumbled. "Why can't we just agree to disagree?"

Wayne groaned softly. "And I'll never understand how you can say things like . . . syllali-buffi-con . . ." He grimaced. "And you can't say this. Come on: it's one syllable; it's easy."

Megamind eyeballed him. "Well, maybe you're the one who's been saying it wrong."

"Um. It's my name, Megamind," Wayne insisted. "I think I know how to say it. Just try it again."

Megamind sighed heavily, like a put-upon child. He fixed his eyes on the ceiling, "Way-en."

Wayne's lips thinned. "No, not like 'weigh-in'. It's just one syllable - Wayne." In a burst of inspiration, he added, "It rhymes with Spain!"

Megamind's face pinched into a squint. "Since when is Spay-in only one syllable?"

Wayne drew his hands down his face in exasperation. They flopped into his lap. "How about we just stick with 'Metro Man', huh?"

Megamind hid a small smirk, then shrugged. "Agreed."

The End
