Work was nearly done and Tuli and her janitorial squad were doing an excellent job cleaning the mess the Meekrobs left, and an even better job because of the help from the people of Earth.
"Oh, what's taking them so long?" Pinkie Pie muttered. "Is Red giving Twilight some boring speech before he finally proclaims his true love for her and not Lol?"
The others looked at her with serious, yet annoyed looks.
"Way to put it simple, Pinkie..." Spike muttered, gazing down at his fists, which were tightening.
"Honestly, Pinkie Pie..." Rarity sighed. "Leave Lol? After all they've been through?"
"Well, what else could happen if Red does tell Twi he loves her?" Applejack argued. "If he loves her, then Lol...oh, boy..." She was a lost for words, fearing an outcome out of the possibility.

"Rofl just wants to get familiar with you," Lol chuckled as she leaned against the counter. "See? He likes you."
The pug's tongue wagged as he gazed up at Red with big eyes. Red chuckled nervously as he slowly knelt down before the animal. Ever so carefully, he placed his two fingers on the pug's large body and stroked it gently.
That did it as Rofl panted quietly and leaned into his touch as his tail wagged. Red, amazed at what he accomplished, looked up to see the impressed expression on Lol's face as she smiled at him encouragingly.
Red just gazed at her smile...it was just so mesmerizing...and her long brown hair, nearly covering half her face...he just wanted to reach over and brush it to the side so he could see her eyes more clearly...
Red broke out of his trance when he felt something warm and wet on his fingers. He looked down and cringed as Rofl licked his fingers affectionately.
Earthworm Zim Chp. 9, part 2It had been an hour since the Tallest had landed on Earth, and quite an interesting hour it was as their cloaked 'captor' and her cloaked beast lead them through the darker portions of the city.

Finally, the figure clicked her tongue for her beast to halt, as well as the Tallest. The Tallest looked up and found themselves gazing at the back of a massive apartment building.
"What is this?" Red asked curiously.
Her face still well-hidden, the figure had her beast reach a hoof over to work the backdoor. "It's Zim's second home."
"This place?" Purple asked in disbelief.
But the figure said nothing as her beast opened the door and she motioned with a jerk of her hand for the two tall aliens to follow. The Tallest, despite being superior, were a bit nervous as they followed her inside. Once they got in, they found themselves walk

Rita's eyes were filled with tears as she placed a shaky hand on the lifeless alien's forehead. It felt cold.
"Zim, no..." She sobbed quietly. "Please, no..."
Rocky was on her knees, her brown eyes flooded with tears as she placed her face in her hands, sobbing for her friend.
Dudley fell to his knees, mumbling words of regret and feeling like a failure as he banged his fists against the floor, calling life unfair. Maria stood between Voltura and Cleo, her eyes sparkling with tears before she gave a silent prayer. Fluttershy, being the most sensitive pony, fell forward on her hooves and sobbed quietly to herself, her pink hair covering her tear-streaking face. Dib just stood there between his sister and Skoodge, feelings of self-hate and remorse imbibed in his body.

The weather had been strange. With each passing day the clouds grew thicker, darker, and heavier. A few months back they had been white, beautiful and scattered sparsely throughout the true blue. Now it was as though there was no sky at all, just a large mass of gloomy haze. Then there were days when there wasn't a cloud in sight but still everything felt off. The sky wasn't the same blue and the sun the sun was the strangest of them all. It seemed too dim but too bright, too warm yet too cold. And the way it hung, no, the way it dragged through the sky was almost eerie. Sure the nights had been strange as well; the clouds would almost completely disperse and the moon shown brighter and larger in the sky, but it didn't have the same edginess the days had.
Today was one of those cloudy days and soaring through the grey sky was a young seraph. Her speed was too high for casual loitering a

Red looked at his troubled advisor of many years and chuckled. "Shruid, I know Purple and I have our duties to Irk," he placed some Irken devices into his bag. "But some of us also have duties to Earth." He looked over and watched as Lol handed Rofl to an Irken soldier to bring unto the Massive.
Though everyone had enjoyed their time on Irk, it was time to go home. Many needed to tend back to their jobs as well as make up for having skipped school; Fanboy and Chum Chum had hoped they'd never return to Mr. Mufflin's class.
"You packed the invitations, right?" Purple asked as he looked at Shruid. "Remember, this is a very important celebration, and all is to be invited."
The advisor looked uneasy. "But...ponies? Weird creatures? And humans who wear underwear outside their pants?"
"I resent that!" Fanboy huffed, he and Chum Chum having heard him from afar.
Red shook his head. "Earth is our sister planet, Shruid," he told him. "Thoug

Entering the throne room, Shruid quickly stood beside the Tallest, a look of pure panic on his face.
"My Tallest," he said in a hush tone, "is it true that you, Irk's leaders, have become infatuated with..." His eyes loomed over the certain brunette and blonde who were ahead of the group discussing with Twilight.
Red and Purple raised eyeridges at their advisor.
"Is that bad?" Purple asked, not caring for a response.
"Well, no, nothing against the laws of Irk..." Shruid played with his fingers nervously. "But humans?"
Red frowned a bit. "Honestly, Shruid, Lol is more than just human. She's great."
"And Winn's helped me realize that a janitor's job is actually an important one," Purple added defensively.
"Oh, uh, yes, of course..." Shruid gulped. His eyes gazed over to Zim, whom was walking proudly. "So the Control Brains really...?"

Red's eyes glazed over the chipmunks that scattered around his feet. He, Purple, and Twilight were at Fluttershy's home. When the Tallest first saw it, they were in awe that it was like it's own Earthly habitat, with various animals living around the area and a river flowing about. They were amazed by every single animal that greeted Fluttershy when she came home, like she was their mother.
Red took a deep breath before he slowly knelt down to the chipmunks. He gave his most sincere smile as the baby slowly wandered over to him. "Hey, little guy...don't be scared...I may be tall, but I won't hurt you..."
Fluttershy smiled to herself as she watched the baby chipmunk walk a little closer to him. "That shows that it's forming trust. Now gently hold out your hand..."
Red did as he was told, and the baby chipmunk sniffed it for a few moments before looking up at Red, its big chipmunk eyes staring at him curiously.
"What now?" Red asked.

I had just barely managed to make it into the classroom before the lingering feeling of death circulated in the room as the teacher literally floated inside. As I sat down at my desk, I looked over towards where Zim sat. He hadn't followed me as I had left his house, and I wasn't even sure he was going to show up today.
Miss Sowourz started the usual morning lecture, something about the number of deaths and injuries from falling vending machines, but my mind was elsewhere. No matter how hard I tried to avoid it, I knew I couldn't just push aside my thoughts and feelings, especially if they had been bothering me for the past few months.
I had tried asking myself countless times what exactly Zim was or meant to me. Most of the time I had instantly cast the question aside, labeling the alien as nothing more than my ultimate enemy. Zim was a cold green alien, an Irken Invader, as I had previously learned from spying on him so much. He was here to conquer my planet, invade it. H

He had been gone for a while, and if his mom ever found out that he had spent fourteen hours of the day at his best friends house, then it would be difficult to explain they were both playing video games nearly the entire time.

"Hello, dear," Oz's mom greeted, "just here to buy Mitzy's usual."
"A sack of crab grass pellets, coming right up!" Lol said cheerfully as she bent down and dragged a large bag out from underneath her storage cabinet. She hauled it over to the woman, and was stunned when Oz's mom was able to hold it in her delicate, aged hands.
"Oh, you are such a sweetheart," the old woman smiled at her. She handed her the money as well as some extra. "Keep the change, dear. Galaxy Hills has become even more happy since you and Winn have begun living here."

His Earth parents allowed him to stay in his lab, thinking that he needed time alone. They were just so horrified that his leaders, the aliens whom had sent Zim to their planet and thus met the family he always wanted, thought of Zim as nothing but a defect, having hoped he would die on their planet.
Brian looked up from his book and watched Rita carry a tray over to the trash bin that led to the underground lab. She opened the lid and gently placed the tray inside the bin before stepping on the control that worked its way down to where their alien son was.
"It's just so..." She sighed, her fists tightening. "It's just not right..."
Brian sighed. "Honey, everyone's just as upset as we are about this..."

Even when she had taken care of that Ursa Minor that invaded Ponyville, Twilight had never used so much magic to rid of the Meekrobs. She had never thought she would go through such pain creating the biggest amount of magic she had ever done in her life.
Of course, Milo and others warned her about not over-doing it, but she had to...
