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

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

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,

His own antennae drooping at Dib's words, Zim could only pull his human hybrid closer to himself. "Ohh, Dib. He's just jealous cause I actually CARE about you." he said before glaring at the ceiling again. "AND HE BETTER CUT IT OUT!" he directed his words to his computer now as he pulled Dib closer and closed his eyes. "Would you like to go out for lunch or something? It might be nice to get away from unwanted company..." he offered, referring to his computer as he shot it yet another glare.
Cuddling up closer to Zim, Dib got comfortable against him before sighing out contently. "Maybe...Though I've been thinking that perhaps I may just be eating too much lately. It looks like I've gained a few pounds in the past month or so, so I'm considering putting myself on a diet for a while. I think that might help settle my stomach somewhat too. But I wouldn't mind getting out of the house for a whil

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

"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

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

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.

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

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

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..
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.

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
ZaDR - JealousyZim glared at Dib from across the lunch room. The teenager was talking happily with Gretchen, completely ignoring Zim.ZaDR - Jealousy in Fan Fiction More Like This
Zim clenched his fists under the table as an unidentifiable emotion boiled in him, white-hot. It certainly wasn't jealousy. Of course not. Why did he care if Dib was talking to the females? He didn't care at all. It kept him distracted. So he could work on an evil plan without being noticed. Or something.
He shoved his tray of school food aside and took a blueprint out of his PAK, spreading it out and drawing on it, humming loudly, watching Dib out of the corner of his eye.
Dib glanced at him and made a move as if to get up, then changed his mind and relaxed again, looking back at Gretchen. She smiled at him, flashing her perfect teeth; years of heavy-duty dental work had finally paid off. She didn't have braces anymore and her overbite was gone; she was quite beautiful now.
Zim growled to himself and put the blueprint away. Time for Plan B. He reached down to pi

Dib lowered his binoculars and leaned back against the trunk of the tree he was perched in. It was recess and he was doing his usual spying on Zim. They were in Hi-Skool by now and Zim hadn’t managed to take over Earth yet. Not that anyone really expected him to. He’s shown his incompetency so many times Dib stopped worrying about him long ago. He just liked observing the many odd quirks the alien had.
His curiosity was piqued slightly. What function did the antennae serve? As long as he’s known Zim and he’s never really figured it out. He assumed they were for hearing and expressing emotion, as they often shot straight up when their owner was surprised or laid down flat when he was angry. But was that all they were for?

Zim's eye twitched and Dib ducked out from under the arm, fairly disturbed. "Okay how do you play it?"
"The first person to get creeped out loses," Keef explained. He ran his hand down the side of Dib's face.
"AH!" Dib jolted back and tripped, falling hard on his back. His glasses tilted and hung off of one ear, looking like they would fall at any moment.
"You lose!" Keef shouted.
Zim laughed at Dib before offering him a hand to help him up. It was currently recess, and bored, the two had decided to talk to an old friend and ask him advice on what they should do. They were regretting it now.
"So basically, we feel each other up and the first one to freak out loses?" Zim asked to make sure.
Keef nodded eagerly.
Zim smirked. "Dib-thing, would you like to play with Zim?"
Dib blushed, pushing his glasses a little further up his nose, and nodded.

"I don't understand your fascination with plants," Zim commented as he grudgingly walked next to the tall human. "Sure, they're pretty. But they don't really have much purpose "
"Don't have much purpose?" Dib repeated. "Dude, they take in harmful carbon dioxide and emit oxygen. Humans breathe oxygen."
"Oh, right. Wait, this is oxygen we're breathing?" Zim looked surprised by this bit of information. "Huh."
Dib sighed. "Didn't you pay attention in science class for the last " He counted the number of years Zim has been here, "Five years?"
"Nope. I already knew all of it and I BSed the tests." Zim leaned down to examine a bee as it alighted on a flower, sucking out the nectar. A thin film of pollen coated its fat body.
"You know, because of a bee's ratio of wing surface area to body weight, they shouldn't even be able

"Come on, Zim!" Dib called from the water. He waved at him. "The water's fine!"
Zim glared at him. "No, I hate Earth water! I didn't want to come to the beach anyway, but you talked me into bringing you here!"
He had used the Voot cruiser to fly them to the East Coast, going down almost to Florida in favor of warmer weather and larger waves. He had bathed in paste beforehand, but he didn't plan on going in the water.
Dib shrugged. "All right, your loss." He fixed his glasses, which were strapped tightly to his head with a band so the waves wouldn't knock them off. Then he swam back out.
Zim eventually sat down in the sand. He was still wearing a shirt and pants, though Dib had convinced him to wear swim trunks underneath, just in case. It was too hot to keep boots on; his legs were getting sweaty. He reached down to pull th

Zim glared out the window of his house at the deadly white flakes drifting down. They looked so harmless and almost serene. If it wasn't for the fact that they were nothing more than frozen water, which could cause severe burns unless he was prepared. Since he didn't want to take a paste bath, though, he was staying inside where it was toasty warm and waiting until the snow stopped.
GIR was outside building a snowman while MiniMoose looked for rocks to use for the facial features. GIR waved at Zim. "Mastah, come outside! Please?" His voice was loud enough that it was easily heard from inside.
For about the tenth time in the past few minutes, Zim shook his head. "No GIR! The snow can burn me, remember?"
"Then wear a hoodie!"
"A hoodie?" Zim hadn't thought of that. "Computer, my jacket."

"Oh, you know he likes you."
"But what if he reacts negatively to the news that his son is well "

He knows I've been going out with someone. And he thinks you're a very nice, smart person. He's my father; he's going to accept me no matter what."
"Well, okay but if something bad happens, I'm blaming you," Zim said, finally walking on his own. He pulled his arm out of Dib's grip and folded them across his chest.
"And we're going to tell him the whole truth," Dib went on as he opened the door.

"What're you reading?" the familiar voice said from behind him.
Without turning around, Dib reached back with an arm and pulled Zim toward him, holding him close. "Just looking to see if there are any new announcements."
Surprised but pleased at finding himself this close to his human, Zim stretched up onto the tips of his toes so he could rest his head against Dib's shoulder, reading the board too. "Hey, look!" He pointed at a bright flyer. "All applicants for homecoming king and queen need to talk to the principal before January 10th!"
"So?" Dib had no clue why Zim would bring that up.
"So we should go for it!"
"Zim we're both males."
"So? We can be homecoming king and king!"
"I don't think they do that."
"We can ask."

That Dib-child just made Zim so furious sometimes. If it weren't for that monkey, he would have taken over this wretched planet years ago. And it didn't help matters that they were in Hi-Skool by now and Dib was almost seven feet tall. Insanely tall compared to the short Invader. Zim, of course, hated Dib even more because of that.
By now they had reached some sort of mutual agreement; neither was capable of winning their endless battle. They were just too evenly matched somehow. They had also discovered that if either were to be permanently defeated, the other would most likely end up depressed and lose their drive.
So actual physical battles ceased to be about a year ago. Now they just insulted each other across the classroom or threw stuff at each other. No different than any other Hi-Skool rivalry, really.
It was the worst time of the year right now. Winter. Temperatures dropped to below freezing and frozen water fell from the sky. Harsh winds blew. It was
