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

After several minutes of just staring at the computer in complete terror, Dib turned to the platform and headed towards it. He shut off the lights on his way out, the computer’s bright monitor illuminating the room now. His head turned to look back at it, nodding once as if to thank it before stepping onto the plate in front of him. The platform rose again for him to take him back upstairs into the wreckage. Now he had an answer as to what happened and why Zim was behaving like he was. The better question was, would he regret seeing that though; seeing the complete self-destruction of his now former worst enemy and now current worst nightmare?
The thing that made seeing that video so traumatizing was that he had actually grown to some what care about Zim. Yes, they were enemies both out to stop each other at every turn, but before Zim, he didn’t have a reason to get up every day and go to school. Zim was everything he had always wanted; an alien that had found

Contrary to what Dib thought, Zim could only smile at his words before responding back in a soft voice to him. "But, Dib...Things were different back then. This is special." he leaned in to kiss the boy. "I can wait for this." he assured the other comfortingly.
"Y-You'll be my first...A-And hopefully my only, b-but...But I'm not your first, am I? S-Something was going on between you and your leader, wasn't it? A-At least, something was going on between you two in the past..."
Zim merely chuckled a little, however. "No, Dib. You're not entirely right on that. Yes, I had a fling with my Tallest, before they took over that is...But we never actually HAD sex...We started...But we had never gotten past foreplay." he blushed, a little embarrassed now. "Of course, Pur always hoped we would, so he kept me as an optional mate, which completely infuriate

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?"

"Jerks..." muttered the teenage boy from his hiding spot inside the boys' bathroom stall. He had been stuffed into a locker- AGAIN!- and had to be let out by a teacher after at least two hours of slamming on the door and waiting for somebody to hear him. To make matters worse, he had been yelled at almost immediately afterwards for missing class. A fairly typical day for him, though annoying nonetheless. Things like this had started happening to him on a daily basis ever since he had first entered high school, and the rumor going around that he was gay did not help matters at all. So he found himself once again hiding out in the bathroom, his preferred eating spot during lunch time. Nobody would bother him while he was in there. Well...at least, nobody human.
He snapped his head up from his food when he heard the bathroom door opening and quickly pulled his feet up onto the toilet seat until whoever had entered, left. That's when he heard an all too familiar voice.
"Argh! Those HORRIBL

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

Seeing Zim perk back up somewhat at his words, Jack smiled. "I think that no matter what happens, things will work out for the better. Don't even think about what might or might not happen. You two were happy before you decided to do this, so stop putting so much emphasis on this as though it will be the deciding factor in whether you two stay together or not. I already told you that marriage is just something people do to re-affirm their love for each other. It doesn't mean that two people can't be happy together without one. I know you'll love Dib no matter what, so just go in there and let him know that. You don't need a marriage to tell him that." he said, placing a hand reassuringly on Zim's shoulder.
Zim smiled a little. "Okay then...Should I wake him up?" he asked.
"Only if you think it can't wait until later to tell him..." Jack smiled back at Zim reassuringly.
Zim grinned wide. "It'

Shaking his head at Dib's yelling, Zim's voice cracked a little when he went to speak again. "This is worse, Dib...Zim has done...bad...B-But...It wasn't intentional! I-I just...didn't know you wouldn't remember...A-And then...something...else happened...Please, just let me in!" the Irken tried again to get the door open.
"If it wasn't intentional then why didn't you just tell me?! How could you expect that I would be mad about something you did unintentionally?!" Dib screamed at the other before falling silent again after a moment, making Zim think he wouldn't open the door.
After a few moments, however, he opened it, just a crack, to peek out at the disguised alien, tears running down his cheeks. "Why couldn't you just tell me...? If you did something that I for some reason don't remember, then why couldn't you just fill me in on exactly what happe

His eyes growing wide, Dib looked away also. "O-Oh..." his antennae drooped a bit. "D-Do you think that I won't keep my promise...?" he asked, now contemplating whether things really would be better off if they just decided to pick things up from there without restoring his memories. He wanted to know what had happened over the past few months but was beginning to fear what horrible thing it was that happened to make Zim wipe his memory in the first place.
"N-No, it's not that! I-It's just...You will think that I won't...You will KNOW that I haven't...I'm sorry...I tried...I-I thought you just wanted some time alone..."
"Well, did you tell me before you wiped my memory that you thought I had just wanted some time alone? Because sometimes...I overreact...and just need a reason for why somebody did or didn't do a certain thing..." Dib said, keeping his eyes averted to the side.

Hearing Red's words, not caring that he was Tallest when it came to Dib, Zim interjected before the other could say anymore. "SHUT UP!" he practically snapped at his leader, though it was already too late.
Having heard the comment, Dib's eyes snapped back open at Red's words.
"Dib? You mean that human you had with you the last time you were here? A-And he's pregnant?! W-Wait a minute. How can he be pregnant if you're both different species?" Purple asked, pointing back and forth between Zim and Dib.
Arms wrapped around his abdomen, Dib didn't even wait around for Zim to respond to that question as he turned to leave the room a second time. "I-I'm going to be sick..." he said, sniffling as he went to head for the bathroom.
"Dib..." Zim watched him go,

Zim sighed. "Maybe..." he looked away. "Maybe we just weren't really supposed to be together, Dib..." he said, his voice just barely that of a whisper.
Antennae perking suddenly, Dib snapped his head up to stare at Zim with wide, tearful eyes when he said that. Then, without any warning at all, he pulled away from the other, his antennae drooping as he took a few steps back before turning to head for the elevator, a complete wreck now.
"D-Dib?" Zim sighed heavily and finally gave up, worn out from trying so hard. Holding his head in his hands, he curled up on the spot. "I just don't know what to do..." he said to the quiet room.
Shakily making it to the elevator, Dib collapsed onto his knees inside it and broke down as it brought him up to the house level of the base. Upon coming to a halt, he picked himself up and made his way over to the couch in the living room, looking back behind himsel

After giving the other's proposal some thought, Dib finally frowned and shook his head. "No! You're lying to me!" he said though Zim wouldn't give up.
"Oooh, come on! How will you know if I am or not unless you let me go and see?!"
"I just know! You always lie to me!"
"Cooome ooooooooon! Aren't you at least a LITTLE curious?"
Dib let go of Zim. "Fine! You can go! I already know you're not going to give me anything no matter how interesting you try to make it sound to me!" he sent Zim a truly hurt look before turning and shuffling away.
"HEY! Zim didn't lie!" Zim grabbed Dib and jerked him back around to plant a big kiss right on his lips.
Eyes growing wide at the small gesture, Dib could only blink a few tears out of his eyes before pulling away with blush, taking a few steps back as he brought his hands up to play with his fingers shyly, gaze fixed on the ground beneath him."Wh-Why did you kiss me? Y-You could have just left without giving me anything." his voice was surprisingly calm

Hearing his voice through the phone was like an echo of my dream. I could feel my face getting flustered. I took a deep breath, waiting for him to respond. I gulped.
"Yes, it's Zim. Listen pig-stink, I need you to do something for me." He was talking like he called all the time! I felt myself getting a little irritated. Almost like all the aggression I had from our past fights were beginning to rumble together in my head, like an earthquake that gradually builds up.
"Hold on a damn second, Zim!" I felt myself getting a little loud so I looked around real quick around my cubicle. Not only had no one seemed to have heard me, it looked like almost everyone had left for lunch. "Just what the hell are you calling me for? And what gives you the right to give me that tone? What the hell's going-" I was cut off by the robot screaming somewhere off into the background. Zim sighed into the phone agitatedly. I could picture him in my head squeezing two of his fingers on the brid
