"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.

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

"My Tallest...there's an alien child, with a big head on the communication's screen!" Yelled one of the smaller Irkens who manned the control room of the Massive. Red's eyes narrowed in suspicion. "Really?" He thought for a moment about just ignoring the call but things were slow and he was bored. Bad things happened when Red was bored. "Alright. I'll talk to the child." He walked over to the screen and looked at the human. "What is it you want, you short ugly thing?" He asked, mind wandering to where his lover was. Where was Purple?
Dib was sitting in his room in front of all of his computers and various things he'd stolen from Zim's base. He was hacking the alien's computer at the moment to get this video feed through. "I'm not ugly...and I'm taller than Zim!" Dib grumbled and looked away self-consciously before glaring. "I want to know more about your

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...?"

"Hello, Mrs. Harmounian," Lol greeted. Then she smiled at the goat that stood beside the elderly woman. "And hello, Mitzy." The goat gave a happy bleat as it smiled.
"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."
Lol took the money gratefully just as Red came into the shop with a large crate in his hands.
"The new pets have arrived," he announced, "let's hope these little suckers don't multiply too much."
Earthworm Zim Chp. 9, part 1It had only been one day since Zim had learned the terrible truth and the poor alien felt truly dead inside. He wouldn't talk to anyone, even Brian, Rita, or Gir. Not even Rocky.Earthworm Zim Chp. 9, part 14 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
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..."

"No, duh," Bea rolled her eyes. "You were practically dancing all night at that Gala, Milo."
"And not to mention..." Oscar smirked. "Dancing with a certain unicorn."
Milo's turquoise face immediately turned red as he opened his locker. "Yeah, so?"
"No matter how much we know he likes her, he'll still go and deny it," Bea chuckled, rolling her eyes. She gazed around the school. "You know, it's amazing that the school was able to fix this place after Bart Simpson totally crashed it."
"There's the Bart Simpson funding the principal made, remember?" Oscar reminded her.
"Oh, yeah," Bea realized, "along with the Rainbow Crash funding."
As the two talked, Milo busied himself with sorting out his locker. True, the Galactic Gala was one of the best parties he ever experienced in his life. Making new friends, eating different foods, and watching dreams come true. He gave that Prince Blueblood the thu

Here he was now...on stage with his family and good friends. How he wished he were more confident like Gir, who was singing that annoying Doom song to pass the time until the Tallest had everything completely set...
The short Irken turned and looked up to see Rocky gaze at him worriedly. She gave him an encouraging smile before lightly punching him on the arm.
"They adore you now," she reminded him, "I mean, you were leader long before this ceremony even started."
"Yeah..." He chuckled nervously. "Zim has been planning his speech this whole time." And he held out a few papers in his hands. "I even edited it, too!"
Rocky raised an eyebrow at the papers before she looked at Zim. "Is it really necessary? I mean, this isn't like running for class president or anything."
"Don't remind me..." He grumbled. "If Zim had won that election, the Swollen Eyeball would have gotten me sooner."

Everything was still. Slightly hunched over a decorative red sandalwood desk she sat in a chair made of finely polished pink ivory with luxurious crimson velvet cushions. The papers on the desk were neatly stacked to the left while a single book titled "Flying Colors" took its residence on the right. Exactly five inches in front of the book was an antique vase that dated back 586 years. The vase was plain but along its rim was a lovely scene of couples walking through a thriving park. Pure white orchids had nestled in the relic, their clean blooms head high. Lined at the front of the desk's polished surface were a row of five pens, all black but each engraved with a different type of gem, perfectly parallel with the one next to it. Nothing moved. Not even her.
Her arms were propped up on the desk, gloved in pure black, and her hands sat folded together, the lovely slender fingers entwined. Beneath the sandalwood s

I've been through
its inescapable horrors,
its tumultuous bouts of anger and pain,
its wonderfully painful pyre of passion,
its comforts and joys,
I have learned that love is not always good,
and that not everything ends badly.
I have learned that not everyone is going to hurt you,
but if you shut them out they will.
I have learned that friendship needs boundaries,
and that at the same time things shouldn't be off limits.
Love isn't finding the one person who is everything that you have ever wanted.
It's finding out how very wrong you were about what you wanted
as you are surprised into a relationship that fits you perfectly.
I thought I knew love many times.
Every time I found that I was mistaken;
that my ideas on love were archaic and not suited to me.
I want someone who will push me,
force me to try things that I'm not sure of,
pressure me into reaching my full potential.
I want a lover who can be my friend first,

Time is fleeting, gone so fast
Wanting more, it will not last
A second, a minute or just a day
A month, a year or come what may
Joy is found and then is gone
A memory made within a song
We see, we saw and then is spent
A glimpse in life is all that's meant
Place the sun, the wind and rain
Within your senses to play again
To feel and touch and be as one
No day complete unless it's done
Feel the love there is to give
Without of which we cannot live
Needed like a breath of air
It's truest form, so very rare

Today a gift, the rest is past
To wallow will not set you free
Give yourself to who you'll be
Look in the mirror, who do you see?
Staring right in front of me
A body with a place to go
Lessons to learn and seeds to sow..

Creeping towards a sleepy village, the glowing light slid over the mountains and hills, scorching the fields and trees. However, as the stalking light reached the Everfree forest, clouds began to move in, black and grey claws grasping for the glowing orb. A tiny sliver was all the reached the village before the clouds snuffed it out like a dying candle.
The village of Ponyville was in as sorry a state as ever. A year had passed since the war that had caused the worst of the damages but still they lingered like an unattended wound. Some attempts at repairs had been made, boards hammered over holes, debris swept from the streets, but otherwise they had been left to fester and putrefy.
