Earthworm Zim Chp. 20, part 2Rocky's eyes slowly opened, at first she thought she was back in her own bed at home on Earth. Shifting her head on her pillow, she realized she was definitely on Irk, having slept on an Irken bed. She gazed across the room to see her sisters sleeping in their individual beds. Rocky and her sisters had a room just for them while their brothers had their own and so did their parents.Earthworm Zim Chp. 20, part 24 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Slowly slipping out of her bed, quiet not to wake them, Rocky walked over and opened the door to the balcony. Gazing down at Irk before her, Rocky could only smile as she allowed the Irken wind to blow through her hair.
Yesterday was just so exciting, meeting the Control Brains, fighting Meekrobs, being introduced to a fellow invader, and now the Tallest were going to make a plan involving a celebration of Zim becoming third leader of the planet.
Rocky tried not to giggle as she reflected on last night's conversation with Zim and Apple Bloom. Almighty Smallest really suited Zim, considering she was taller t

Some of the people were just standing around and looking to Zim and the Tallest and not dancing or enjoying the party. Being Pinkie Pie, she was both annoyed by the fact that some were not partying and a bit concerned.Earthworm Zim Chp. 18, part 24 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The look on Zim's face made her concern rise even more.
Zim just sat there, his ruby eyes staring into space while his jaw was unhinged. He was stiff as a statue...looking so overwhelmed and lifeless.
Rita and Brian stood by the Tallest, both looking at them with desperate eyes, the expressions on their faces asking and pleading that what they had told their adopted alien child was completely false.
Purple sadly looked at the couple. With a guilty sigh, he nodded. That gesture was more than enough for Rita to gasp in horror.
Rocky gazed at Zim in utter worry. She hadn't seem him this way since the time he found out his mission on Earth was a fake. He looked s

"I love you, Winn Lockhart..." He said in a quiet, serious tone. "And you're going to love me, too."
Winn gulped, sweat pouring down her neck as Alejandro roughly took her arm and pulled her from around the desk. She did nothing as he held her from behind, his gun pressing against her back.
"We're getting out of here..." He hissed to her as he led her out the door of her office.
Winn said nothing, her hands quivering for fear of her life. Alejandro led themselves out the door leading toward the school parking lot. From another perspective, it would look like an adult being helped outside casually with a student, his hand behind her back. The gun jabbed a bit more at her backside for her to move further as they continued walking.
"I know exactly what I'll do with you..." He

Twilight, having stopped crying, gazed down at the grass, deep in thought, but on the other hand felt a bit soothed because her good friend Mordecai was with her. She had earlier told herself that she needed to be alone, be away from her friends for a while...but Mordecai...she couldn't push him away. He was here beside her right now, utterly concerned and willing to show as much sympathy as she was willing to accept.
Mordecai gazed at her once more, the look of concern still on his face. "Can you talk now?" He asked gently.
Twilight sniffed a bit before she finally turned to look at him. "Hi..." She said finally, trying to put up a strong smile despite her shattered interior.
Mordecai managed to smile back. "Hey." His hand left her shoulder as he conti

After the party ended last night, Red and Purple wanted to drop Lol and Winn home. Red searched for Twilight to let her know that they would probably be spending the night with their girlfriends, but he couldn't find the violet-eyed pony anywhere. Instead, he informed Spike, whom promised to let Twilight know.
As soon as the Tallest returned the girls to their home in Quahog, Red thought he would just get a good night kiss and just sleep in the same bed as his beloved...
Red's smile grew bigger when Lol's eyes slowly opened and looked up and gazed into his red ones. "Hi," she said softly with a smile he adored.
"Hey," he greeted back. He reached over and pushed a curtain of brown away from her face. "How are you?"

They embraced quickly, conscious of all the skool students around them.
I still dont understand the problem of being open. Zim pouted, only half serious. I mean, they all believe me to be a human, so why must we hide?
Zim, I dont know about on your home planet- Dib began, before Zim interrupted him.
Irk. He said softly, telling Dib what he refused to tell him for months, even after they had confessed their feelings for each other.
Dib just stared at Zim for a while, processing this information. Knowing his planet made his alienism all the more... Real.
You were saying? Why must we hide like those pathetic little rodents? Zim asked crossly, poking Dib in the stomach.
Mice. Dib said absently, before shaking himself out of his thoughts.

Unfortunately, he was too late as he saw Numbuh 3 happily eat her cereal along with Numbuh 5 and 2, who were having theirs with some toast. Numbuh 4 grumbled before he grabbed a bowl and sat himself at the table, grabbing the box as soon as Numbuh 2 was done with it.
"Hey, Numbuh 4, you remember that green kid Rocky brought into the organization a while ago?" Numbuh 2 asked.
Wally stiffened but did his best to pretend he was only slightly interested. "Yeah, why?"
"Doesn't he seem kind of...weird?"
"Well, duh!" Kuki chirped. "He has no ears and talks really funny!"
"Numbuh likes the new kid and all..." Abigail sighed. "But he really doesn't pass off as the normal kind, in my opinion..."

"Yes sir, he certainly did," the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created everything; then God created evil. And, since evil exists, and according to the principal that our works define who we are, then we can assume God is evil."
The student became quiet and did not answer the professor's hypothetical definition. The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth.
Another student raised his hand and said, "May I ask you a question, professor?"

But, after all that had happened, he was dreaming of something far different...
He had flashes of colors forming in front of him.
The colors took the shape of people he knew. The Turtles and other non-human characters he met...were a bright flash of glowing blue.....Rita and Brian, they were a warm glowing yellow color...
The warmth was incredible, not like anything Zim had felt before.
The others he knew were a variety of colors: blue, purple, dark green, bright orange...
But when he thought of Rocky. She was all the colors, with her outline glowing a deep shining gold. And her image was the clearest, with the sharpest contrast and her features stood out the most. H

On nights like this, stars glimmer in the clear Earth sky, so beautiful, it has never been this dark and yet lite.
Years ago, almost 5, Zim, an ex-invader from Planet Irk, was banish to Earth.
His mission's truth, to invade Earth, was thrown in his face. It was all a lie, nothing could compare to Zim's devistation and anger.
A year later, Tak returned to Earth, hoping to take Earth from Zim. Zim showed no signs of caring. This disturbed Tak, she expected a fight, for she was prepared. He didn't put out, he instead sat back and watched.
Tak, confused and for no reason, seemed concerned.
When asked, Zim told Tak about how the Tallests snapped at him, reveiling the fact that his mission was a lie. Tak wasn't exactly surprised, she already knew.
Tak forgot about HER mission, instead, without really knowing, she spent time with Zim, talking, causeing highway crashes. WITH ZIM!

After Zim and Tak were called in. They walk around the lobby room. Zim stared at Tak, her voilet sparkleing eye glowed. 'Pregnant?', he thought. Zim had always thought about being a father once or twice, never thinking it would happen, the fact was there now, un-reversable, and yet...

'Twas Hearth's Warming Eve
And under the moon
Not a pony was stirring
Not an owl, not a loon
Foals' stockings were hung
On the mantle with pride
In hopes that best pony
Soon there would arrive
They slept in their beds
All those dear little fillies
Dreaming cookies and cupcakes
And donuts with filling
When up on the rooftop
I heard something quite swoopy
As if AJ's sister
Were there loop-de-hooping
I arose from my bed
And donned my wool stockings
(For I couldn't be naked
If guests were a' knocking!)
I slunk down the stairs
And to my great surprise
Was greeted by coal dust
And a pair of blue eyes
"Shhh!" said the soot
Covered pony below me
"We don't want to wake
all these nice sleeping ponies!"
Her scaly companion
Showed expression quite vacant
But she thought I was sleeping
So I decided to fake it
As light as a pegasus
And as quiet as a mouse
I descended the stairs
To watch this guest in my house
She pulled out a bag
And I knew then for sure
She had snuck in to rob us

Part 1: "Humility"
Chaunn awoke early on the fourth and final day of the journey to Pa'asa Myunde. She could have sworn that she'd heard someone else in her quarters, though if it had been the pfaukal, it had decided not to pounce on her head today. She'd had no peace since the pfaukal had figured out how to open Runner's doors and Runner refused to lock it out of everywhere but the engineering section.
The warrior-woman didn't grumble for long; her anticipation of the day's coming Hunt improved her mood dramatically. It had been some years since she had faced the yautja's age-old enemies, they of long limbs, head, and tail; they of steely carapace and acid blood, those supremely alien creatures who provided any warrior such a delectable challenge, and those probes of Baku's had shown them that their cavern of pillars had seen quite recent activity from just such creatures.

The trees were pathetic. Most of them were dead or dying without the care and nourishment they had been receiving for years before. They had even given up on bearing fruit. Only a dozen trees still provided bounty and they were tasteless shells of the gleaming jewels they had once been. Fed only by water and the suffocating smoke of industry, it was a miracle even these trees still stood. This land that had once been a farm of the most delicious apples for miles around had fallen into hard times, only to rise into a different kind of farming. The farming of steel and bronze. The farming of offense and defense. The farming of war machines. That's the kind of farm Sweet Apple Acres was now.
The Barn, which had once been filled with the sounds of content cows, now echoed with the sounds of unwilling metal and the harsh shouts of man. The smell of iron and sweat was always heavy in the air, as though the very walls ha

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
