In an eternal instant, the world changed.
He knew of one reason, of just one reason, that explained why he would wake. Here, like this, in the middle of the once-proud cracked walls and shattered windows.
She was not awake, not yet. Still she remained in her artificial slumber, but it would not last. He knew it. If he was here, now, then so were others. It did not matter who. It did not matter why. But he had been told long ago that his purpose was to hold her back, and so he would.
He scrambled down from his perch, paying no attention to the stuttering echo of the voice cheerfully spinning a tale of impending doom across the thousands of like locations spanning across the land, and he hoped she was awake. Not the one who was in man-induced suspension, but the other one, the one who would

“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
