“Four Johto League badges down, four to go.” Alex grinned as she looked over her case of Johto badges, and while she wished she’d gotten them in the intended order, she was nonetheless glad to have them. “There were times when I thought I’d be stuck with just two.”
Nicholas sighed; it felt like his girlfriend had been celebrating her victory for weeks, rather than the scant two hours that it had actually been. Thankfully, no one had bothered them much for parking themselves on a bench on one of Ecruteak’s many streets. “Well, as happy as I am for you, there are other things going on right now.”
“I know, I was just trying to savor the victory.” The case was flipped closed and pocketed, and Alex turned to her boyfriend and moved the conversation elsewhere. “Anyway, your stuff’s waiting for you in Goldenrod City.”
“Yeah, but I’ve still got something to do here in Ecruteak, remember?

A/N: First off, I know I have way too many unfinished stories going. Many of them crossovers. And you're right, I really shouldn't be writing yet another one, but I couldn't get this out of my head. Secondly, yes... that's the best title I could come up with. I'm sorry. This is a crossover between Invader Zim and Portal, and I wanted to try to make this better than my other crossovers in that I want to do my best to explore all the major characters that make an appearance; their motivations and, most of all, their relationships.
That said, there will not be any pairings in this. There will also be no humanizations of robots and all the characters will retain their canon forms.
If you'd be willing to take the time to read and comment, any constructive criticism you might offer would be welcome I hope you like the story!
A single pinprick of light softened the muggy darkness down the road at the edge of town, expanding and growing brighter as it approached.

“Okay, so we’ve got two options. One, we head directly to Goldenrod along Route 35. It’s the quickest route on foot and should get us there the fastest.”
“And the second option?”
“We cut through the National Park. I’m sorta disinclined towards that, however.”
“Wanting to avoid any further potential run-ins with Team Rocket?”
Alex looked up from the screen on her PokéNav. “Actually, no, I figured you’d want to get to Goldenrod City as soon as possible. Plus there’s a Bug Catching Contest on today and it’s gonna be packed and as much as I’m okay with Bug-types, I’m not in a rush to add another to the roster.”
Nicholas shrugged. “I’ve heard worse logic.”
The two had been on the road for several days and, aside from their encounter with the poll-taking Sudowoodo, hadn’t dealt with any major distra

“Fools! Idiots! Imbeciles!” Megelle’s venom continued to spew at his two subordinates as he ranted further, “I should have made certain the two of you were left to rot in that prison cell for your failures!”
A foul look crossed Brawn’s face, and he found himself thinking that a jail cell would’ve been better than getting yelled at by this fat little nutcase. Vaughn, by contrast, kept a neutral expression as he commented, “Boss, please, she took us by surprise. Besides, she had an Aura Guardian traveling with her and…”
“Pendrake! Why does that not surprise me?” The scientist seethed. “Those two have an annoying tendency to not only find one another, but interfere in my plans!” He sharply turned his attention back to them and declared, “The next time you cross paths with them, I want them dealt with! No excuses, no failures, just success! Am I understood!”

“So you’re an Aura Guardian. I’ve heard of them, but I thought they were just legends.”
“I can’t blame you; there aren’t a lot of us left.” As the trio walked along to where his equipment was being held pending pickup, Nicholas sighed softly as he explained, “In times long past, Aura Guardians like myself would travel the world, helping people and, if they were able, teaching others in our ways. But between the gift being rare and population growth, it’s getting harder to find others who can manipulate Aura.”
“Sounds like you could use a newsletter or something.” The shorter man chuckled at his joke, and Jake asked further, “So what’s the difference between Aura and psychic powers? I mean, they both do the same thing, don’t they?”
“Yes and no. They can accomplish the same things, but they’re derived from difference sources. An Au

After scrapping idea after idea, I finally decided to take a break from it all and just relax. And relax I did; which is why I've been gone...for like what? A month or so? I don't know.

Brushing that all aside. NEW STORY! WOOT! I am feeling a bit sad that my stories aren't getting much attention as they used to. *sigh* Oh well. As long as they are readers, and they leave reviews, I am happy.

To Spyro, it was a beautiful day for camping; the sky was clear and the temperature was perfect. As he was walking around trying to find a great spot for the night, a black figured appeared in front of him. That figure turned out to be no other then Cynder, his best friend.
"Spyro? Where are you going?" she asked in a soft voice.
"Hey Cynder! I was going out camping for the night; wanna join?" said Spyro. She accepted his invitation for the trip and followed him to where they thought was the perfect spot. It had everything they'd might need; food, water, a cave in case of a storm, and enough branches for firewood.
"This is perfect!" they both exclaimed, but Spyro was fast enough to say jinx; they still had a little bit of immaturity in them for fun. She started to chase him around the area, laughing and having fun. As they did, they found a lake for fishing, which was flowing with fish.

“Pretty much, and he had the audacity to claim that he wasn’t crazy.” Alex sighed, remembering her one-sided rivalry with the geeky scientist Eldon Carter. “And now I’ve got a bad feeling that now that I’ve mentioned him, I’m gonna run into him again.”
Nicholas chuckled softly. “Alex, this isn’t some cheap book or movie. Just because you mention someone doesn’t mean you’ll see them again.”
“True enough.” A smile crossed her lips as she admitted, “That said, I wouldn’t mind running into the girls from Canterville again. They’re awesome, you’d like them. And they’d like you.”

The sun shone down brightly upon Ecruteak City, filling Alex with some confidence as she made her way through town. A healthy breakfast and being fresh off a pleasant day sightseeing hadn’t hurt either. Her positive mood hadn’t been lost on Nicholas, leading him to remark, “You’re looking bright today. That battle yesterday didn’t damper your spirits too much.”
“If a difficult battle was enough to discourage me, then I wouldn’t have gotten out of Lilycove. If anything, it was a good warm-up for the gym battle.”
Not surprised by his girlfriend’s eagerness, Nicholas shook his head. “Well, call me crazy, but I’m not in a rush for you to battle with that Cal guy again. He was a bit too full of himself for my liking.”
“It’s the rare one of us that doesn’t have a little bit of ego trouble. He’s not a bad guy, and besides, the next time we battle, I…”

“So? What do you think?”
Alex tilted her head, considering her boyfriend’s newest acquisition with a critical eye. “Not as quaint as your old one.”
“Yeah, but it’s bigger.” Nicholas grinned and noted, “More storage space. Plus there’s more than one bedroom, so you’ll get more privacy.”
“Ooh, that’s a selling point.”
Indeed, Nicholas’ new recreational vehicle was larger than his old one, looking far more impressive and modern than the vehicle he and Alex had used as transport throughout Orre. Aside from its size, however, it wasn’t all that different, with a plain color scheme and everything an RV required from solar panels on the roof to connections for dumping waste water on one side, albeit concealed by panels.
Satisfied at this point and eager to get on her way, Alex grinned and rubbed her gloved hands together enthusiastically as she asked, “So, you need to gas

The cultural jewel of the Johto Region, Ecruteak City was a city steeped in history and myth. Many of the most prominent legends associated with the Johto Region were intrinsically linked to the city, thanks to it being the location of the long-burned Brass Tower and its successor, the nearby Tin Tower, both major landmarks to the region thanks to their links to the legendary Ho-oh. Between that, the city being a crossroads through the region, and the presence of a Pokémon gym, Ecruteak was a regular stop for many a traveling Pokémon trainer.
As she stepped past the city limits, Alex took a deep breath and smiled, glad to be here at long last. Nicholas noticed this and smiled as well. “Glad to finally be here?”

“For that whining sigh I just made.”
Alex looked at him, smiled and shook her head. “Nick, I can understand you being frustrated. We got attacked by two Team Rocket goons and your new RV potentially ends up damaged in the process.

A blissful smile was formed as she looked to the sky above. The star that gave warmth to Cynder was beyond its mid-path, and slowly fell to the horizon on the west. In due time, night was to arrive.
The young dragoness thoughts moved to Spyro. She could imagine his vivid violet eyes as they stared, astounded towards the rose she brought him. His hands would cradle the flower as she gave it to him, and he would ask if the flower was for him in all his naïveness. Cynder giggled as she brought these thoughts into the best images she could create in mind.

Looking past the sign, Ib could see a dark bed with a strange, cloud-like headrest in shades of black and white. The young child raised an eyebrow at the piece of furniture resting on the snow-white rug.
To be honest, the black and diamond-shaped bed didn't really look very threatening to the young brunette; not after what she had experienced in past...day?

I've always been a Pokémon fan, since I was 5, and now even with my fourteen years, I'm still a fan. I've had a lot of Pokémon games: Gold, Crystal, Blue, Red, Yellow, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Diamond, Platinum, HeartGold and I was waiting for the new releases of Pokémon Black and White.
My mother, knowing I was a Pokémon fan, once came with a bag, which was handed to me. Her words, I can remember them. "Take it", she said. "Take it as your birthday gift", she repeated and then left.
I opened the bag and found a Pokémon cartridge. It was not like the ones I had before; it was totally black.
It looked like a Pokémon Diamond cartridge, but it had no title. In fact, the cartridge label only showed two light-blue eyes.
