Zim smiled a little as he ran his ungloved hand through Dib's hair. "Don't forget that you have to be home at nine..." He whispered after stroking the boy's head.
Dib groaned lightly against Zim's chest before lifting his head to look up at the Irken through one open eye. "Don't remind me." He sighed before redirecting his gaze to a clock Zim had right above the TV. It was almost 3:30. He only had around five more hours to spend with Zim before he had to head home. Less considering he'd need some extra time to actually walk home.
His father had said he wouldn't be back for at least two hours after Dib got home, but he didn't want to take any chances. Every once in a while, Membrane would come home just a little bit early to surprise him and Gaz, though that wasn't often. It was only really the nights he promised to have dinner with them before heading back to work. But this was different. If his father had plans of running tests on him, he may return a bit earlier to pick Dib up and br

First things you must remember are these:
1. Never send Rahkshi, those minions will only cause havok, destroying what you want to rule.
2. Keep a really low profile! Avoid being seen in your real form by humans! I know man fears what he does not understand and what he fears he sometimes destroys.
3. But if you are seen by humans in your real form flee, killing will only attract attention (don't worry human enforcers will never believe their stories).
4. Never EVER try to act out a horror movie, that always ends really bad for us. (Mutran learned that the hard way).
5. The fact we're evil robotic-like beings, that does NOT make us Terminators or Decepticons!
6. There are some occasions when we can walk around humans in our true forms, specifically some Muggle holidays when people dress up in costumes like Halloween or Madri Gras, or at one of those cons since there is

It was not natural.
That had been one of the many turbulent thoughts that had plagued Arcee since being abandoned by Jhiaxus. They were seen as a genderless race, but one source of tampering had completely changed that. Arcee had been the poor victim of circumstances—chosen on a whim, altered for the name of “science,” and subsequently left with the single-minded focus of one day finding her revenge for what Jhiaxus had done to her.
Just because he could.
His actions deserved her vengeance—her anger. It had left her traumatized, alone, different. She had been violated on levels that few other Cybertronians could

Okay, these names were unique when they were first spawned from some Goth kid's head, but X's don't make your user name look cool any more. It makes you look like some emo/goth wannabe who is just looking for attention.
User names with random numbers on the end:
When you type in a desired user name but it's already taken, the computer makes names as suggestions, like instead of JohnSmith, you're J.smith, SmithJohn, Johsmi, JohnSmith233... etc. The list can go on. Just because you want your "desired" user name, doesn't mean you need to memorize pi.
User names that are just misspelled words:

A How To on Writing FanfictionA How To on Writing Fanfiction8 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
1. Intelligence is required. No matter how interesting or humorous a plot you may have, it is always better to read a well-written, intelligible fiction than a thrown-together piece of junk riddled with spelling/grammatical mistakes.
2. Plot is important. There are such things as PWP's (see PWP section), but other than that, plot is what really makes a story. What is happening is what makes the reader go on and want to read more.
3. Creativity is a must. No one wants to read the same thing that they have seen from 50 other writers. Try to be original, and if you see an idea you really like, improvise it a little without copying it outright.
4. Every element in the story matters. From the plot to the series to what happens to the characters, everything ties together to make the story what it is.

I am one of the most popular girls in school. I'm only 4"11, a little on the short side for a seventeen year old. But I'm not those one of those shy girls with a shallow personality. I am rebellious; loved, respected, and a little feared by the students and simply hated by the teachers. But luckily, I'm pretty smart, so it's hard for them to find a way to punish me. Heh.

As soon as the doors closed, Viola knew she'd be lucky if she was ever given the chance to step outside them again. The sound didn't just echo throughout the tower, but appeared to signal the ending of her old life and the beginning of an entirely different one.
"You'll have to watch this one," Mrs Casket said, holding up a frail hand speckled with age. The index finger was missing. "She bites."
Viola averted her eyes, trying to ignore the ball of apprehension growing in her belly. She gazed up at the winding staircase. Her tongue felt like a strip of dried leather and it was difficult to form words around it. "How much longer until we're there?"
Mrs Casket stopped in her tracks and raised the lantern. Her hair was pinned back and greying at the temples. In the dull light her eyes looked almost black, glittering like a beetle's shell. Viola half-expected them to scuttle around her face at any moment, disappearing between the creases of her skin.

Here I am with several comments from many Invader Zim fans, telling how they feel about the famous cartoon channel, Nickelodeon, removing Invader Zim, a cartoon about Zim, an alien who wants to rule the planet Earth, and his [adorable] robot, Gir, from the network.

Well, maybe I'm the only one who has nothing better to do on Sundays but rant and rave about how Zim and all of SLAM is cancelled to make room for Rocket Power or Rugrats reruns, when we see THOSE cartoons at least once a day!

Arcee trembled violently as the images flashed before her optics. Terror gripped her spark as she saw the image of Tailgate being slaughtered by Airachnid. She wanted to scream, she wanted to wake up from this dreaded nightmare. But she was trapped in a void with the image repeating itself over and over again. "Tailgate!" she screamed, her optics squeezed tightly.
"Arcee! Wake up!"
Immediately, Arcee bolted upright, screaming her former partner's name once again. Her breathing was laboured and beads of oil dripped from the corners of her head and neck. She soon became aware that she was not alone in the room and glanced around to find Optimus sitting on her berth and looking down upon her with concerned optics. His hands were on her shoulders and it soon came to her that he had been shaking her to get her out of her nightmare.

Dib banged his head against his locker in monotone, trying to expel the memory of that goddamn event that had happened earlier. A few fellow students walked past, attempting to give the obviously insane teen as wide a berth as possible.

It had started out simply enough. Normally. He had been watching Zim as he always did, studying the alien, trying to figure out his weaknesses, what made him tick, the best possible way to expose him, dissect him etc.

It is of course well known that careless talk costs lives, but the full scale of the problem is not always appreciated. Examples are rife throughout history wherein freak wormholes carry otherwise harmless words through rips in the fabric of the universe. What is not as well known, however, is that these rips in the space-time continuum traverse not only our universe, but other universes. Universes that are quite similar to our own, but differ in details so small as to be barely noticeable.
Imagine a world where perfect grammar is not only requested—it is required by law. A world where split infinitives merit jail time. A world where a sentence ended in a preposition is punishable by death.
