Zim tried not to feel anxious as he continued to wash himself.
"Oh, shut up, Zim! You know very well I asked you to keep a shower running for me before you left the gym! How was I supposed to know you were still using it?! Besides, I thought you hated water! So why haven't you gone home yet?!" Dib snapped right back at the other, peeking out from behind the curtain of his shower to have a look around, contemplating ducking behind various shower curtains until he could reach the towels on the other end of the room.
Chancing a quick glance over at the shower Zim was still standing behind, he took a deep breath before darting out to make a quick dash for the shower curtain closest to his own. He then did the same with the next one and then the next one, drawing ever closer to his prize. When he was about two showers away from where he could see the folded up towels however, he felt his foot slipping against the wet tile floor as he made another mad dash for one of the curtains.

Dib could feel the other's fake eyes following him, watching his every move as he packed up the last of the gym volley balls into there bags, and he couldn't help but wonder why. Why was it that fate was so cruel towards him? Ever since he'd first entered high-school, it seemed every teacher he came into contact with was drawn towards pairing him up with his worst enemy, as he currently was right now. Not that it really mattered when the green menace just sat back and watched.
"You know, you COULD help me with some of this, you jerk." he said, picking up the first bag of volley balls to move them over towards the equipment room.
After an intense gym period in the close to freezing-cold basketball court, their gym teacher had assigned THEM to pack up all the equipment and move it back before heading home. A few weeks shy of the winter break, Dib just wanted to get out of the school's required gym clo

Dib rolled his eyes. Of course Zim would be going off again. This time was no different to the last, except instead of rambling on about the cafeteria food giving him blisters, he was directly addressing the cafeteria drone herself. She ignored him of course, barely casting an eye towards the green 'child' directly in front of her, let alone every other student in the cafeteria for that matter.
How could they not see? Even after a two years of the same nonsense. Dib had at least expected something to change. But no. He was still picked on. Still known as the crazy kid with no friends. The paranormal freak.
Putting his hand to his chin, Dib slowly ate his cafeteria food, trying to blot out the noise of Zim's raspy voice, but it was no good. He could still hear it ringing throughout his head. He almost envied how the other students could block Zim out so easily. He just wouldn't shut up.
The pounding sensation emerging on the right side of his temple didn't help either. The more Zim rant

A couple of hours passed, one right after the other, until finally Dib started to show the first signs of waking back up, though this time for good.
"Mmm...Zim?" he murmured before blinking his eyes open to look around the room.
To his surprise, said Irken was nowhere to be found. He had gone upstairs while Dib was sleeping but hadn't made it back before he woke up.
So, sitting up in bed slowly when he realized Zim wasn't in the bed with him, Dib looked about the room confusedly. "Zim?" he said again, unsure whether he should get up and look for the other or stay put. Squeezing his legs together somewhat uncomfortably, he squirmed about in the covers a bit as the urge to pee hit him all over again, reminding him that he had needed to go the last time he had woken up.

When Dib offered him the blanket, Zim couldn't help but sigh. This was not what he had actually had in mind though he accepted it still, snuggling into the warmth anyways. "Can you stay with me?" he then asked, looking up at the boy sadly, his eyes begging for Dib to lay down next to him.
"O-Of course! I-I wouldn't leave you..." Dib said quickly, kneeling down near the Irken again and leaning in to press another kiss to his forehead before resting his head on Zim's chest comfortably.
Smiling at this, Zim brought his arms up to wrap around Dib. "Thank you..." he thanked the other before closing his eyes tiredly.
Finding the Irken's neck to nuzzle his face into, Dib responded by placing a gentle kiss there.
Eyes closing all the way now, Zim finally man

Watching as Zim left with Purple, Dib suddenly felt rather uncomfortable being left alone with only Red, unsure whether he should leave or stay.
Closing the door behind them, Purple then turned to face Zim once they were alone, circling him a few times before slinking up behind him to place two hands with long, slender fingers on his shoulders. "So...Tell me, Zim...You 'like' this Dib-human that Red has been talking about this entire time?" he questioned the other, almost suspiciously.
Zim blushed at having Purple so close. There had been a reason why he preferred to speak with HIM over Red after all, the same reason Red always wanted him gone. "Yes...I like him." he answered back confidently, eyes fixed on anywhere but Purple.
Snaking his arms even more around Zim, Purple then rested his chin on one of

Gaz couldn't take it anymore. She was sick and tired of having to listen to her father complain about every imperfection he found in Dib. So dropping her video game, she couldn't help but send Professor Membrane an icy glare. "Dad, SHUT UP! We ARE lumped together! I'm gay too!" she voiced out before stomping her way over to the stairs to the lab. "If you were home more, you would have known this about us!" she turned to scream back at him before storming down the stairs, just mad enough at Membrane to help Dib save Zim.
Jumping at the sound of his sister stomping down the stairs, Dib quickly turned his head to look back at her. "G-Gaz?" he couldn't believe his eyes as he watched her come up next to him so she could kneel down and take up her own towel to help him dry Zim off.
Glaring back at Dib, Gaz merely snapped at him. "Well, don't just sit

Zim hardly responded to Dib's barging in as he remained laying on the couch with his back to the door. Merely balling up in his spot even more, he rather squeezed his eyes tightly shut, as though expecting the other to start throwing threats at him now rather than over the phone. "Wh-What are you doing here?" he asked, his voice scratchy from how long he had cried.
Still in a panic, Dib merely continued to look around the room with wide, unblinking eyes. "I-Is this some kind of trick?! She said she was coming to kill you! She told me! I...I..." his words trailed off as his eyes continued to dart from one end of the room to the other.
Finally sitting up a little, Zim turned slightly to look back at the other, the blanket slipping down to his waist. "What are you talking about?" he now looked at the hybrid as though the other were insane.

Helping to steady Zim, Dib reached for the blanket he had wrapped Zim in earlier and his trench coat to pull back on. Then, draping the blanket around Zim, he merely scooped him up into his arms. "You shouldn't be walking yet. I'll carry you to the base. Besides, you'll be needing what little energy you do have right now for when we get back to your base. I'm not so sure your computer is going to let me in again." he sighed, dropping his gaze to the ground.
Nodding his head, Zim nuzzled himself into Dib's chest. "Mmm...He'll let us in...You just gotta know how to talk to him. He doesn't take you as an authority figure is all. I bet Gaz could get to him, what with all her gaming knowledge." he said, doing his best to stay awake as he was carried up the stairs to where he saw Gaz waiting for them.
Holding a few suitcases, Gaz's gaze seemed to be

Scooping Dib up bridal style, Zim smiled and carried him upstairs. "Anything specific you want?" he asked.
Antennae still drooping, Dib could only shrug loosely. "Sugar..." he spoke, feeling as though he hadn't had anything sweet to eat in days. He just felt like sprinkling sugar over everything edible in the fridge.
Zim smiled and nuzzled him. "Okay, anything UNDER that sugar?" he asked with a laugh.
"Whatever you have left over in the fridge, I guess...I don't really care." Dib said as he let his eyelids slip closed to rest against Zim tiredly.
As they went up in the elevator to get food, Zim nuzzled him gently. "I'd say we have a lot of leftovers...That is, if Gir hasn't done anything with them yet..." he laughed.
Opening his eyes, Dib looked back up at Zim. "I'll eat whatever you have...These smeets aren't exactly too picky at the moment. They're mostly just making me hungry for ANYTHING really..." he said.
Zim smiled. "Okay. How about that left over Chinese take-out?"

Unable to bring his eyes up to meet Zim's gaze, Dib could only speak in a voice just barely above that of a whisper. "...But I already did...I wasn't mad at you about what happened down there...I was mad at myself...because of my reaction..." he brought his hands up to wipe at his eyes again.
"Ohh, Dib...Is that all?"
Letting out a small whimper, Dib broke down again. "I wasn't afraid you'd go too far. I was afraid I'd go too far! So I pulled away before that could happen because I didn't want to hurt you!" he exclaimed, unsure whether he would have been able to go all the way through with it had he started.
"Wh-What? Dib, you're not going to hurt me..."
"But I've already hurt so many other people in my life! I've hurt Gaz, I've hurt my dad, hell, I've even hurt one of your leaders! But above all else, I've hurt you more than once already! Every time I react the wrong way,

Sweat beading at the top of his forehead as Dib curled himself up the best he could in Zim's lap, Dib swallowed thickly, the only thing he could think of to do in that moment being to try and will himself without any drugs into as deep a sleep as possible until it was all over. He clutched Zim's shirt tightly, closing his eyes and taking deep, slow breaths.
"Well...We'd better go!" Purple said quickly before glaring at Red. "I have some THINGS to discuss with Red here." he said, Red swallowing nervously as the transmission was cut.
Realizing that Dib was trying to relax, Zim picked him up and decided to help him by taking a seat on the couch out in the living room. "Is it okay if we stay here for a while?" he asked, looking up when both Gaz and Tak exited the room where the transmission had just been cut.

His antennae falling back to press against his head, Dib narrowed his eyes on Zim even more. "That's not funny, Zim!" he exclaimed, slamming his hands down on the kitchen table.
Zim shrank down into his chair as far as he could. "Haha." he laughed uneasily then swallowed. "R-Right. Not funny." he said more to himself than to Dib.
Hearing the other still laughing, Dib, without thinking, threw his plate of food at Zim. The Irken ducked out of the way just in time to avoid the plate as it crashed against the side of the wall and broke into pieces.
Breathing heavily, Dib seemed to snap out of his sudden rage when he heard the sound of the glass breaking, causing him to blink wide eyes open, his antennae perking. "H-Huh?" he looked around confused, first at Zim, who was hiding behind his chair, then at the broken pieces of glass laying strewn among a pile of food on t
SelfishI looked out the window as it began to rain. I frowned a bit and looked in Zim's direction. Zim too was wearing a frown, it was a bigger frown than mine. Water severely burned the alien's green skin and I wondered what it felt like to burn when water hit your skin but didn't want to experience it at all.Selfish in Short Stories More Like This
I went back to doodling on my page. Lately me and Zim had been hanging out, mostly out of boredom. I have nothing better to do but study Zim and Zim was having a 'break' from destroying the world so we settled on a neutral agreement to hang out after school. I was ok with it, I mean at first I was suspicious -very suspicious- but Zim was uncaring of my suspicion and eventually it wore off.
On nice days, we would go out to eat at fast food places and I would gorge on whatever I bought while Zim just watched in pure disgust. At one point Zim demanded that I actually chew my food at least 10 times before I swallowed it. I argued with him about it and told him 'you're not the boss of me' a
