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

Dib wasn't sure how to respond. As it seemed to him, Zim had already thought up everything to put into the disguise. So blushing a bit at the other's question, Dib merely shook his head slowly. "Well...Uhm...No. I think I'm good for now...U-Unless there was something you wanted to add! Y-You could go ahead if you wanted to...j-just to see if I'd like it or not..." he threw in quickly, deciding Zim had every right to make changes of his own to it just like he had.
Seeming to think it over for a moment, Zim quickly turned back to the screen and began scribbling a little more onto it, a small smirk on his face as he did so. "There. That should do it...Now just stand on that tile, and we'll get it on you." he said, pointing to the tile he was referring to.
"O-Okay..." Dib agreed, walking over to stand where Zim had told him to, a little nervous tha

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

Leading Dib back to the base, confused as to why it was so quiet but figuring Dib was just being sentimental about something, Zim merely let the others silence slide. "Well, here we are...Uhh...Should I have the computer make you a room? Or would you like to bunk with me?" he asked, looking at Dib questioningly.
Dib finally looked up at Zim at the question. "Ummm...Wh-Whatever you're more comfortable with..." he then looked away to the ground again.
Zim could only look at Dib confused. "Okay...What's wrong now?" he looked worried.
Dib took a few steps back away from the other. "N-Nothing..." he lied.
Zim was really lost now. "Wh-What's wrong?" he asked again, reaching out a little for Dib but pulling back at the last second, sighing and turning towards the house to walk inside, head down. "You can have my room..." he said in a low voice.
Dib took a few more steps away from the door. "M-Maybe I should leave..." he felt uncomfortable now that he was at Zim's base.
"What? NO!" Zim grabbed

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 asked 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.

Dropping a giant pile of papers on his desk, Miss Bitters then pointed out the door. "Fine! Now get out of here!" she ordered Zim to leave her classroom.
Grabbing all the papers, Zim wasted no time at all making a break for Dib's house. "M-Maybe...Maybe he will forgive me." he said to himself, holding the papers tightly as he made his way to the human's house. Arriving at the house within a matter of minutes, he hesitated before making his way up to the front door. "Well...Here goes nothing..." he whispered to himself before knocking on the door.
Answering the door a few moments later, Gaz could only glare at him when she saw who it was. "What the hell do YOU want?" she demanded, standing in the doorway with her arms crossed, tapping her foot on the ground impatiently, having had to pause her game to answer the door.

Looking up at Dib guiltily, Zim could only drop his eyes away after a moment. "I'm sorry..." he blushed, knowing he had been getting ahead of himself. "But yeah...I could make you a disguise...You'd have to come back to my base though. The computer has the disguise machine...And...If you wanted...You could stay for a while while you try it out..." he offered, blinking back up at him after a moment or two.
"I-It's alright. I-I just don't want to do something I might regret in the future. But I can go with you to your base if you need me to. A-And if you don't mind, I-I guess I could stay for a few days while I try out the disguise, though I know I won't really be able to go out in public with it."
Smiling at Dib's answer, Zim nuzzled him affectionately. "I understand. So...Shall we go then? Oh! But you might want to pack a few things before we leave..

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

To say the very least, Zim's arm was in pain as he pulled it back to himself to cradle gently and let out a small sob. "Dib..." the others name slipped past his lips as he went back to curl up next to Dib, really hoping he didn't get any worse by morning.
After a few hours of sleep however, Dib began to wake back up once more, the painkiller Zim had given him beginning to wear off. Opening his eyes to find the room he was in completely dark, he was only able to see the shadows being cast across the walls of Zim's lab.
So sitting himself up slowly to have a better look around, he couldn't help but let out a pained yelp and double over in his spot with his arms wrapped around his stomach when he tried to locate the Irken in the room. "Z-Zim?" his voice shook a bit as he called out the others name in the dark.

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 was horrified by Dib's words. "Wha- NO! I was only playing with you!" he pulled away from Dib. "After all this, you still think I'm going to try and destroy this planet?! You already know it's a reserve!" he was desperately trying to make Dib believe him.
"Yeah, but only because you're on it right now, and your leader is so madly in love with you! But if you were to ever leave, how do I know it would still remain as a reserve?! Your leaders could blow it up at any time if they really wanted to!"
"Eh, but you- he- GAH!" Zim tugged at his wig where his antennae were hiding. "WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BELIEVE ME?! I CAN'T LEAVE THIS PLANET! EVER!" he yelled, starting to attract a little attention. "I JUST THOUGHT YOU'D LET ME SPEND MY POINTLESS EXISTENCE WITH YOU!" he kept ranting, walking around in circles and tearing at his antennae under the wig.
