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

So here it is! I am finally working on this for those of you who've been so patient. I am working on making this flow a bit better so please excuse its immense length since I have been adding a lot. I hope you guys enjoy chapter one and the rest of the story once I can get around to posting it! I am writing Dib's parts and Invader-Neo is writing Zim's. I haven't edited much of hers because she writes like a boss!
Everyone in the skool building knew it was a scientific law that when there was Zim, there was always oddities and inevitably, screaming. These screams were usually on resulting in either anger and denial at anything that could have been brought to his attention that he felt were threatening to his position and mission, or from absolutely anything that came out of his arch enemy's, Dib's, mouth. And both these oddities and screams were the very things that defined what Zim was to these humans as much as his PAK defined him as an Irken. He had

Dib’s hurried pace soon slowed to a steady walk as he got closer to Zim’s base. He delayed getting there as he was both afraid and nervous of what he may find here. He actually started to second guess if this was the best thing to do, but he arrived before he knew it. Once it were visible across the road from him, Dib stopped and stared at it for a short time. He drew in a deep breath, whispering unsure words of encouragement before starting closer towards it.
Zim's base looked pretty similar on the outside, except for where his gnomes keeping his house protected had been destroyed. Though, it did seem to have an eerie aura around it which was something that hadn’t been present in the past.
Dib had made it to the front door now, staring upon it as if there were something fairly interesting about it. In reality, he was just preparing himself for what he was sure would be a quite shocking sight. Finally, he pushed the door open and flicked on the lights wi

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

Resolve came in the form of first sunlight beaming through the shattered hole that was at one point a window. It immediately melted away the shadows and extinguished the coolness that the night had brought. Everything was completely visible now and revealed to the paranoid human.
However, even after the sun had come up, Dib took a while to convince himself that there wasn't actually anything there, and that it had all just been a crazy delusion in his head. After several more minutes of watching everything around him, he had finally convinced himself that he was alone now, which actually relaxed him and made him realize how tired he actually was. It was too late to try and sleep now though since he had to get ready for another dreadful day of school.
He didn't try too hard, though, as he decided to stay in the bloodied and torn cloths from the night before and only ran his hands over his hair in an attempt to smooth it out. He was far too tired and stressed to be concerned

Upon arriving home on that quiet, eerie night, Dib was relieved to find that no insane Irken had followed him. He was alone now, and he had the feeling he would have a peaceful night in contrast to the others he had experienced.
As Dib had made his way into the house and up to his room, the lingering smell of day old blood hit him. It wasn’t quite as harsh and foul as the pile of junk found in Zim’s closet. However, it was enough to make the boy groan in both agony and nausea, but the smell didn’t seem to stop him from hobbling to his bed and allowing himself to collapse upon it.
At least he was safe for now, and tonight would be one of the only nights open for him to sleep without much worry. Zim was still too weak to come for him, and the computer was keeping him indoors for tonight.
As Dib lay on his bed with his eyes pealed wide open, he felt himself almost grow drowsy as time proceeded. He even fell into a deep and much needed sleep within fifteen

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.

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..

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

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

Looking back behind himself at the table with the medical bandages and cooling gel on it that the computer had told him about, Dib quickly made his way over to it and gathered them into his arms before returning to Zim's side to press the cool surface of the container holding the gel to the large bump forming on his head. Then, taking up the bandages and looking over Zim's body, he turned to address the computer again. "And where exactly are all these broken bones?" he asked, waiting for the computer's response.
The computer let out a frustrated sound. "Do I have to do everything around here?!" it said before bringing down its mechanical arms from the ceiling to point to all the areas that Zim had broken bones so Dib could begin bandaging them.
Zim didn't know how long it had been since he had fallen unconscious, but he knew it had to have been at least a few hours before he finally began to come around, blinking his eyes slowly open and groaning, his body feeling like it had been run

"No, Gir. I need to do this alone. Besides...I have another favor to ask you. I don't know how long we have, so if I'm not back in about an hour or so, I want you to go to my house and tell Gaz to take Tak's ship and get as far away from Earth as possible. Please, can you do this for me? A-And tell her that if I don't contact her within 24 hours that chances are I'm dead..." Dib's voice fell with his last statement as he was having a hard time admitting to himself that he may very well die on this mission. "Please, Gir. I just need you to do this for me!" he looked down upon the insane robot with a serious look upon his face.
"Okaaay..." Gir finally gave in before smiling and waving goodbye to Dib as he climbed

His snickers growing into demented laughter, the drone's voice seemed to bounce off the walls of the cell Zim was in. "Oh, well Earth is going to be no more than a field of asteroids as soon as the clearance comes in." he sneered in an all too amused manner as he towered over the terror-stricken Zim.
"WHAT?! B-But the Tallest said...It's supposed to be a ZOO!"
"Heh...Not anymore, it's not."
"You-!" Zim attacked the drone in his rage, knocking him out cold and then attempting to leave the room. "Locked!" he growled, blasting at the door, searching the interior for any sort of air vents, attacking the walls, and attempting just about anything else he could think of to escape. But after an hour or so of failed attempts, he finally sank back down to the floor and curled up in a fetal position, his conflicting emotions bringing tears to his eyes. "Dib is going to die...and it's all my fault." he broke down right there in the cell, uncertain as to what he was going to do now.

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.

Watching as Zim left with Purple, Dib suddenly felt rather uncomfortable being left alone with Red only, 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

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
