ZADR Orange Chapter 100
Nodding his head slowly, Dib watched the still rather nervous-looking Irken crawl over to the opposite end of the bed to get up before standing up himself to follow him out of the room. "...O-Okay..." his voice came out in a whisper as he walked behind Zim to the elevator, keeping his eyes glued to the ground as he played with his fingers, only glancing up at Zim every few seconds before returning his gaze to his feet.
Zim wrapped his arm around Dib once he entered the elevator. "Umm, there's another thing too..." he said.
"Hmm?" Dib lifted his gaze up to look back at Zim. "What is it?" he asked.
Antennae perking at that and eyes snapping wide open, Dib pulled away from Zim a bit, his antennae then falling back to press against the back of his head. As could be expected, he was angry, but he wasn't going to say anything for Zim's sake. "...I-I don't care.

Smirking at Dib's question, Tak leaned herself even more against Gaz before answering. "Oh, nothing really. Just relaid a little message from Tallest Purple." she cackled a little. "Looks like he's going to come visit you two." she said, unable to hide the laughter in her voice.
Dib blinked his eyes wide open. "Wh-What...?" he looked over at Zim. "What?! I thought they were going to leave us alone!" he said, obviously not happy with the news. He didn't want to think about why their leader was coming in the first place considering his and Zim's previous relationship.
"Well, apparently not. Because he just called my base a few days ago and told me to let you two know." Tak smirked, now finding enjoyment in Dib's particular reaction, especially when she rested her head on Gaz's shoulder, hands traveling down the girl's body inappropriately.
Dib blushed at how Gaz just seemed to ignore the other

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?"

Just allowing Zim to scoop him up and carry him over to the tub for a bath, Dib didn't even respond or look up, his dazed gaze focused on the ground beneath them. He couldn't look back up at Zim, even if he wanted to. It was almost as though he had completely shut down.
Worried about Dib but thinking it would be best to get the both of them cleaned up first, Zim stepped into the warm goo and sat down with Dib in his lap.
His antennae shivering before falling back to rest comfortably against his head again, Dib didn't respond at all save for a small shudder as they entered the gel. He wasn't exactly used to the gel baths yet, the semi-liquid substance still somewhat cold to him despite technically being a 'warm' gel bath.
Sighing heavily, Zim pet Dib gently. "I'm so sorry, Dib...This is my fault...Again...EVERYTHING is my fault...M-Maybe...you shouldn't have remembered...You could have

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'

A bit flustered by all of Rose's questions, Dib could only blink at the shirt she was holding up to him. "U-Ummm...I-I guess..." he said. Rose really had been dragging him back and forth, making him try things on, something he wasn't very used to. And he couldn't say he had any idea whatsoever to say back to her. To say the very least, he had hardly even ever had any reason to go out shopping for clothes in the past. To his knowledge, his clothes had always fit him up until this point in time. So being asked all these questions about something he really could care less about was putting him on edge a bit. He had at least hoped Zim or Jack would come in with him rather than leaving him to deal with Rose all on his own.
"Oh, come on, Dib. You have to tell me whether you like things or not. Otherwise we'll never be able to get you what you want."
"But I don't KNOW what I want." Dib whined a bit. "Can't I get a second

Taking another step forward towards Zim, Jack sent him an all too serious look. "Zim, what happened?! And don't try changing the subject! If I weren't okay, we wouldn't be here right now! But I'm obviously fine, so just please tell us what happened!" he pleaded with the other in an all to urgent voice to just tell them what happened.
"Please, Zim! We've been worried sick about him ever since you took him from our house! We're concerned about him! And we're concerned about the smeets!"
Swallowing, Zim blushed some more. "U-Uh...Well...I-It's nothing BIG. Just a little accident...B-But...He's really upset about it..." he said, still not wanting to tell them what happened.
"Zim! Tell us what happened! It's the least you could do after what you did to Jack back at our house! So don't just brush it off like it's nothing! If he doesn't want us bringing it up, then we won't! But at least tell us wh

"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.

Eyes widening at Rose's words, Zim seemed to seriously consider them for a moment before smiling to himself. "Oh, hey! That's right!" he grinned wide and glanced at Dib. "Well, go ahead and try it on." he said, taking the bunny shirt from Rose and pushing it towards Dib.
"Wh-What?!" Dib blushed a bright red now, looking at Zim as though he were crazy for agreeing with her. "Zim, are you cra-" he got cut off as Rose happily grabbed him by the arm and dragged him into the changing room with her to have him try it on. Then, after several minutes of struggling with him to put it on, Rose pulled Dib out of the dressing room wearing the pajama top.
Giggling a little, Zim grinned wider then he ever had. "I like it." he said.
A few other customers looking their way just to giggle themselves at the funny looking outfit, Dib was at this point too horribly embarrassed to even respond.

Grabbing it from her, Purple smiled wide and hugged it. "I'd give anything to see Zim in this." he snickered into his hands. "I wonder if I can convince him to put it on." he tried to imagine Zim wearing it.
Rose smiled a little. "Would you keep Zim alive?" she asked.
Purple looked back at her confused. "Hm? I-I wasn't planning on having him any other way...Of course I want him alive...I never said I wanted or was going to allow him to die..."he said.

Hearing Zim behind him, Dib jumped and turned on his knees to stare up at Zim with wide eyes. "Wh-What the hell was that, Zim?!" he pointed at the screen. "Tell me what's going on!" he demanded, tears streaming down his cheeks now. Having to relive that moment in time, even if not remembering it the first time, was just as painful as when it first happened.
Slumping to the floor, Zim carefully wrapped his arms around Dib. "I-I didn't want you to hurt...I'm sorry..." he apologized again.
Bringing his hands up to wipe at his eyes, Dib could only break down even more. "Then why have you been lying to me this entire time?!" he curled in on himself more, burying his face in the Irken's uniform top.

For seven long years, Dib has been trying to expose/destroy the Irken invader, Zim, who showed up in his fifth grade class one day. As soon as Dib saw this green kid, he KNEW he was an alien. Of course, no matter how obvious it was, and no matter how hard he tried to prove it, no one believed Zim was really an alien. He became very discouraged after awhile.
After about four years, something happened between Zim and Dib that changed EVERYTHING between them. However, I will not tell you what it is yet. After this event, Zim had actually tried LESS to destroy the Earth, even though he always talked about it. Not only that, but he seemed less like a threat to Dib and more like a source of entertainment. Zim started barging right into Dib's room randomly, climbing in through the window, and insisting on bugging him. Annoyed as he was, Dib didn't actually TRY to make Zim leave. They still hated eachother... or at least they kept saying they did. No matter how much they hated eachother though

In the PWF universe, I have given Irkens certain traits. Whether or not this goes against some actual traits, I don't really care. I'll try to stick as close to Jhonen's Irkens as I can, but I have bent them into a certain model that goes along with the story of PWF.
Of course, they're green, and their bodies are no more than hosts controlled by paks. They still have fuctioning organs, though. Squeedlyspooch!
In fanfiction, people have been known to give their Irkens blue, purple, or even pink blood. However, I've stuck with red. It isn't as dark and crimson as our blood, but sort of orange tinted, sort of like the color of blood of someone who has anemia. If you've ever seen Jisatsu Sakuru (Suicide Circle, also known as Suicide Club), that's the color of my Irkens' blood. Oh, you can just tell the blood is fake in Suicide Club. XD So orange. Irkens also heal much faster than humans. A bruise or deep cut could be fully healed within just a few hours.

Dib walked straight to his room when he got home, to cover up all the cameras, hand cuffs and Alien hurting devices he had stored there. He didn't want to scare Zim away. Why? He still didn't know, he just figured Zim would leave if he saw the lasers, choking devices, many hand cuffs, plans to stop Zim's plans and spying equipment.
When he was done throwing the junk in his closet, under his bad, in his drawers and anywhere else the stuff could fit, he went down stairs to make him and Gaz afternoon snacks; he didn't want Zim to see him eat, considering Zim doesn't eat.
Zim entered his base, only to be crashed down by a flying Gir.

Zim thought about what he read. He re-read it over and over again in his mind. 'Maybe this is why I shouldn't have friends But Gaz never hurt me I guess it's not all bad.' Zim thinks to himself. Zim did, in fact, hear the 'Wait!' Dib shouted, but he ignored him. Zim was on the couch and Gir was asleep in his lap. It has been an hour since he left and Dib has called him repeatedly since he left. Zim had also got word that skool was to end on Tuesday, not Friday; so Zim only had two days until he leaves for his mission.
'I guess I'm going to skip skool tomorrow. I really don't want to see Dib.' Zim decided. He then went to sleep, and went through dreams; not to wake until Tuesday morning...

Dib had given a note to Zim listing everything that he needed to bring to the sleepover, after skool.
1. Sleeping bag.
3. Night goggles
6. Silver bullet
7. Small sleeping bag for Gir
Zim had looked up before what a sleeping bag was and he now knew what it is used for. He had called the computer and told it to make two sleeping bags during skool.
Now, at home, he packed what was needed. He put the bullet, goggles, stake, and radio in his PAK. He put the Garlic in a bag and put it in his PAK. Then asked the computer where the sleeping bags were.
The computer dropped the two perfectly made sleeping bags. One was blue like Gir's eyes, with a black Irken symbol on the front and the other, the one for Zim, was red and had the Irken symbol on the front. Zim grabbed the bags and went to the elevator.

Through the first week Dib and Gaz came to see Gir routinely. After the first week was over, they took him home with them. Ever since Zim left, Dib blamed himself, and went into a small depression. He didn't talk to anyone but himself, Gaz and Gir; but mostly himself. Dib stopped chasing after other paranormal, because it reminded him of the fun he had with Zim. Gir regularly checked up on the house, and no intruders ever came.
Dib would look through his very special telescope, and try to find Zim ever night. He sent echo waves through space, from one of his dad's machines, asking for forgiveness and pleading for Zim to come home. He never got an answer.
By the fifth week of summer he started getting desperate, and started writing letters. Short ones and tied them to balloons and let them free. After about a week of sending hundreds of letters, he stopped sending them, but kept writing. Every week he would go with Gir to Zims house, and leave the letters in Zim's house. Dib never gave

A Squeal came from the couch and before Zim could do anything Gir came flying at him with Taco pieces on his face. He hugged him fiercely and didn't give notice to the bag Zim currently held.
With an "Oof," Zim heaved back when Gir hit him, but made no move to stop him or get free of the hug that was killing his squeedily spooch. After a second he tried to struggle free, but he knew it was a losing battle and gave into the hug. Before he would never have even thought of hugging anybody, much less Gir, but thoughts of the approaching mission had made him somewhat soft on the little creature. And Dib And Gaz.
The tunes from the TV played the Bloaty's Pizza Hog song. After a moment of hugging the robot, Zim grew impatient. He had gone by Crazy Taco and got something for Gir. Something that hasn't even came out yet, and wouldn't for another 3 months; the time of which Zim would be long gone.

Zim often talks to Gir, about past times and things that have happened before Gir and Zim met and Dib dreamt about these conversations. Almost all of them He is still oblivious to Zim leaving, or the mission, or the girls in which Zim has to save.

Dib walked into his classroom five minutes before the bell and sat in his seat. A girl with purple hair and braces, known as Gretchen, came up to him. "What's wrong, Dib?"
Dib looked into her eyes. He looked away as he spoke, "I did something horrible and I think I severed my friendship with Zim. He probably hates me now and I can't do anything about it!"

Those are some of the words an Irken smeet learns as soon as its PAK become functional. I remember when I first heard these words, I had always wondered what they meant. Other Irken's seemed to understand them right away, but not me. Nope, not Zim.
Whenever I had asked my Tallests about these words they had acted weird towards me. Not in the usual weird way they act because of my superiority but because of something else I could never figure out in my amazing head. Other Irken's called me hurty words and laughed at me. Apparently these words were important to all Irken's and the whole Empire. But I had always wondered why. Quite often I had heard the word the Dib-shit had just called me, mostly mentioned when I was near my Tallests, or high-ranking Irken's, but I had never realized it may have been directed towards me.

I had tried asking myself countless times what exactly Zim was or meant to me. Most of the time I had instantly cast the question aside, labeling the alien as nothing more than my ultimate enemy.

"We shall. The sooner this stupid project is over, the better."

Gripping my bookbag tight, I turned to leave the classroom. The morning sex-ed lesson had seemed to go on forever and it didn't help that Sowourz had insisted we pair up to work on some of the questions. I hadn't been paired with Zim (thank god, I can only imagine how that would have went) but that didn't stop the obnoxious green alien from demanding answers from other students. Half the morning he had spent twisting around in his chair and slamming his fists onto desks, yelling loud enough for the students on the opposite end of the school to hear, about how 'hyooman's' were lax and 'stoopid' that they actually needed to learn about this 'stuff.'
I had smirked again at that, asking him if he'd ever learned about sex-ed on Irk, to which he yelled 'I AM FROM EARTH! I AM NORMAL!' in an attempt to bypass the question.
Now I headed towards my locker. Zim's was right across from mine on the opposite side of the corridor, strangely enough. We didn't share homeroom, but

That's how long it had been since that faithful day he'd stepped into our seventh grade classroom. Black hair, green skin, not to mention no ears or a nose. I knew almost instantly he wasn't human, I mean, really, it wasn't that hard to see. Or so I thought. Apparently the rest of my classmates thought the opposite. A 'skin condition' he'd claimed to have and they lapped it up like a dog sucking pitifully up to its master for a bone. Gullible and naiveté. That was all our society was. And that was all it would ever be.
Of course, they thought nothing more of me than the 'crazy' kid, so in a way I wasn't surprised when they'd turned on me and my opinions. It wasn't like they mattered. Who listens to the insane kid that's obsessed with the paranormal and seeing ghosts and aliens?
First they ignore you, then laugh at you and hate you. Then they fight you, then you win.

Dib cautiously snuck up to Zim's house, trying to evade the glares of the creepy garden gnomes. How could anybody in even their right alien mind put those things in their yard?! Reaching the glowing house, Dib glanced into the window to see what kind of activity was a-happening inside.
Zim was sitting on the purple couch along side his crazy SIR unit, GIR. Clutched in his two fingers was a dip snack. The alien dipped in a strange white stick and put it in his mouth, as did GIR. They were watching some show about diarrhea. "GIR, I only hope this does NOT provoke you to do something insane... though I digress, knowing you." Zim muttered.
"YEW gots da diarrhea too?"
"NO, GIR. Filthy hyoomans and their filthy waste disposal methods..."

This sensation inside was so confusing. Dib and I had been mortal enemies for seven human years now! Why was this unsettling sensation appearing now!?
What did it mean?
I winced. "Yes?"
It was barely a croak, but she heard. "You're zoning out. Pay attention or I'll send you to the underground classroom. For the rats."

As multiple kids whispered their juicy rumors in a way that was just loud enough to hear, two kids stood to the side. The taller, a golden eyed male with black hair, turned to his purple haired sister, motioning to the chattering students around them with a thumb. "What are they talking about?"

The massive group parted and the Tallest walked up. Despite the fact I'd gained a foot of height in the past five years, I still had to crane my neck to see them clearly.
Tallest Red cleared his throat. "Zim, we have evaluated your life."
"Evaluated?" I asked, confused.
"Yes, evaluated," Tallest Purple stated. "As in, 'looked over it and judged it'."
"Judged it!?" I yelped, gasping in shock. "Why!?"
"To decide whether you're worth our time."
"To decide whether you're useful!"

Silence had filled the small, cramped councillor's office for a full half hour since Elliot had brought the two teens in after the little incident in the hall this morning. Since he had started his new job as the skool's councillor, Elliot had come to the conclussion that waiting for the troubled teen to speak to you was better for the teen's self esteem than trying to pry the problem out of them.
Elliot was a rather scrawny man in his late thirties. Standing a little over six feet, he was the perfect example of optomism and, in his opinion, a proffessional teacher.

Without even asking, I ran out the door, activating my spider legs for extra speed. I barely made it to the bathroom before I lost it.
When I was done, I collapsed to the cold floor, the acidic taste of vomit thick on my tongue. I was shaking violently, too exhausted to even deactivate my spider legs.
I hoped nobody came to investigate.
Then again, did I really care at this point?
My 'stomach' heaved again and I pulled myself up, throwing up yet again in the porcelain bowl. Afterwards, I flushed the toilet and watched the filthy water swirl.

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

As Dib stood outside of his home, he couldn't help the overwhelming loneliness that washed over him. After the neighbours reaction, he highly doubted anyone would take him seriously. Not like they had taken him seriously before anyway.
On top of the extreme aloneness, the boy was feeling a massive amount of paranoia. His house had proven to be just as dangerous a place to be now, and after seeing how easily and quickly Zim could infiltrate it, he realized he would never feel at peace inside of it. He would always be looking around himself, checking to make sure he was truly alone.
Dib took only small, slow steps towards the house now, his eyes flicking everywhere as he scanned for any threats. He was quite jumpy now though, so when a small leaf flew by him he jumped backwards a step and let out a high pitched scream. He began to breathe rapidly until realizing it was just a leaf before taking a deep breath and staring forward again, his eyes continuing to scan his environm

Upon realizing there was no sign of the Irken even making an attempt to get into his house, Dib felt it were safer to be in there now than outside so he rushed towards it in quite a hurry. Once he had burst in the door, he slammed it furiously behind him and turned to lock the door for an extra sense of security. Hopefully Gaz had a key to the house so she wouldn't bother him with her obnoxious banging as she did quite often.
After locking the door, Dib turned his back to it and leaned against it, closing his eyes and taking deep breaths in an attempt to calm himself after all of the stress he had endured that day. Unfortunately, he could only think of Zim as he stood there, images of that haunting grin flashing in his memory.
The boy let out a groan of both agony and frustration as he headed towards the downstairs bathroom, pulling out a first aid kit to bandage his wounds before heading up to his bedroom hoping that some relaxation would help to clear his mind. Of cours

Dib remained in an almost trance-like state for a few moments as he recalled a few memories of Zim. He took another deep breath before speaking again in a quiet tone. “Zim... He was pretty interesting.”
"Yes? What is his personality like?" The doctor questioned, beginning to write again at the others decision to elaborate more on the subject.
Dib slowly looked back to the doctor, shifting in his seat as he considered the question. “Well, he was loud and obnoxious and would often insult the human race whenever he had the chance to. But, he was very proud of his race and his leaders. He made every attempt to take over Earth even if he failed every time. But I liked that about him...” Dib’s voice trailed off some as his gaze lowered. “I admired that about him actually..”
Dr.Gaul hummed and nodded his head a bit. "Well, I can only chalk this up as more schizophrenia from how you say this. You seem very fond of this little delusion as

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

Dib walked down the sidewalk appearing more disturbed than he had since this had started. The lingering taste of Zim’s blood seemed to keep him in an almost trance like state as he walked almost unnaturally down the sideswalk. Of course, the boy’s unsettling demeanor attracted more stares from the people around him.
People went from being distasteful and scowling at him, to almost frightened and concerned for the boy. He'd been progressing so quickly to lunacy lately that some people believed it was time he saw someone about it.
This thought of going to see someone though seemed to be out of the question in Dib’s mind. He knew a doctor would only blame it on schizophrenia or just plain insanity and not even try to believe that something was actually going on. He would only be prescribed some drug to try and rid him of ‘the images in his head’.
Perhaps that's what he needed to stay sane though; receive some counseling and a bit of medicin
