Author has written 15 stories for Megamind.
It's hard to believe that I've been writing for over three years now. And I owe it to the movie Megamind. A lifelong reader, I had very little interest in writing, until this movie came along and I discovered fanfiction.
I saw a couple of movie ads, saw a preview (the "arachnis deathicus" scene where Roxanne blows the spider into Megamind's face), and it looked all right, so I made a mental note to check it out from the library for my kids when it came out on DVD. Little did I suspect what an incredible film it is! I fell in love with the characters, the animation, and the story. I watched it six times in one week.
I have loved sci-fi/fantasy and animated movies and TV shows my whole life (Star Trek, 1980s Transformers (I've been around for a while), Avatar: The Last Airbender, Disney and DreamWorks, How To Train Your Dragon, Firefly, and Harry Potter, just to name a few), but I never got involved in any of them to the extent that I have with Megamind. Both the movie and the wonderful people of the fandom have won my heart. This is, hands down, my absolute favorite movie, whether you're talking animated or live action.
Naturally I am extremely unhappy that DreamWorks shows no inclination to produce a sequel of our beloved blue alien. On the other hand, there is the possibility that the sequel would suck, so I try not to let it get me down. At least there is all this great fanfiction and fanart available.
I used to follow the DreamWorks page on Facebook, but at the end of December, 2013 (if I remember correctly) they changed the profile picture of their cast of animated characters, and removed Megamind! That made me so angry I 'Unliked' their page (Yeah, that'll show 'em!) and joined Tumblr, which is where a lot of Megamind fans hang out. You can follow me there if you wish, under the same name, ladyspock7.
And here is the obligatory disclaimer: I do not own Megamind, nor any of the other characters from the movie. DreamWorks does.
