Dib stared at Zim wide-eyed in panic as he approached him slowly, backing up a few clumsy steps before bumping into the fence behind him. He looked over his shoulder and eye it, dreading the fact that he had to climb the damned thing if he wanted to avoid the same fate his teacher had met.
After glancing back at Zim another time, seeing that he was getting closer to him quicker than he thought, he turned and faced the fence and backed up a few steps. He drew a shaky breath before running at it and making a leap as he got close to the fence, grunting as he hit it and started his desperate climb.
A screech of obvious rage exploded from the hobbling being that was trailing far behind his escaping form. “IB!!!!” The name practically pierced through the air as wild eyes, even through those contacts, locked onto him frighteningly and his arms outstretched in a dire want to rip the other from the rusty chained fence.
The screech shook the boy, causing his grip to sli

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

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

Soon all of Zim's tremors just seemed to halt. He pulled himself back up onto all fours, extending his head up with his neck still cocked at an awkward angle so he could see Dib's face. He parted his lips into the grin again, beginning to screech out in a single laughter with that eerie 'e' sound again.
The sight of that haunting grin seemed to paralyze the boy as he slowly let himself down to the floor, wrapping himself in a fetal position as he rocked himself very stiffly as if to comfort himself. Violent shivers also shook him as the cackle rung in his ears as they only intensified the dread he was already feeling.
Zim slowly began to drag himself over to him, seeing him as wounded prey now. His limbs still had trouble taking turns, looking even more like a creature in dire need of an exorcism.
Dib's eyes expanded as the other drew closer to him. He didn't blink now since in his mind, blinking only made him made him more vulnerable than he already was, even though he wo

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

Dib bit down firmly on his lip before shakily stepping forward and pulling him slowly up the creaky stairs. Since it was dark, he squinted his eyes in an attempt to see a bit clearer in the small amount of light that he had. As he slowly made his way up the stairs, whispering the Irken’s name in an attempt to draw him out from his hiding place. In a situation such as this, Dib preferred to know where Zim was rather than him be out of sight with the possibility of a surprise attack.
After a minute of crawling painfully slow up the stairs, he finally made it to the top with the sight of the illuminated room at the end of the hallway; the same room his sister’s decomposing body lay on the metal table.That light was still on, but there weren’t any sounds. Either the Irken was being especially quiet, or he wasn't there at all.
Dib’s feet were planted deeply where he stood, hesitating to go any closer to the room. Memories and dreadful images of what l

Morning came early for the traumatized boy, his alarm blaring loudly in his ear that morning. It was another school day, but would he dare even risk it? The answer was an obvious no as he slammed the top of his blaring alarm with a tight fist, then covered himself back in his blankets. After lying there for several minutes to think over his situation, he considered that maybe some human interaction would help clear his mind... Maybe someone would finally talk to him.
That was a shot in the dark though when it was really considered. What would make today any different from the others to the point someone would speak to him? Especially now that word was getting around that Dib was falling deeper into a psychosis that left him dangerous to others.
He made his final decision to skip again today. In fact, he was even considering the possibility of not going anymore all together. It wasn’t doing him any good anyway and with his current being; he was in no mood for peop

When Zim came to it was completely dark. He could vaguely remember waking up a few other times but had quickly been drugged again before he could get his bearings. Now he had absolutely no idea where he was.
Slowly his eyes began to adjust to the dark and he could only just make out the wooden crate he was trapped inside. Trapped! He was trapped and couldn't get out! His heart began to pound as panic rose up inside of him, forcing away all sense and reason. He scrabbled; twisting around in the tiny space as he desperately looked for any way out. He was an Invader, and Invaders could not be contained!
All of a sudden the crate bumped joltingly and light flooded in from a sliding opening. Zim didn't think twice before he shot out of the crate like a bullet, blinded by the sudden bright light he ran until he careened head first against a tree, abruptly stopping his panicked flight.
He blinked dizzily and looked up stupidly at the tree he had smashed into at top speed. T

It was dark by now, the stars just beginning to peep out in the sky while the sickle-moon shone faintly through the smog of the city. Zim walked down the sidewalk with his fists clenched angrily at his sides. Hours of walking looking for GIR and the little SIR Unit had been back at the base the entire time! That horrible robot! Next time Zim would make sure GIR would tell him when he was going out and exactly where he was going.
Suddenly Zim stopped mid-stride, looking back over his shoulder. For the past block and a half a suspicious looking bush had been shadowing him and sure enough it was still there, only five feet from him now. Zim narrowed his eyes. "Dib, this is your most pitiful spying attempt yet." He said. The bush rustled and the unmistakably big head of Dib popped out of the top. "Took you long enough to notice." Dib sneered. "Did you only just now realize I was here?"

Zim couldn't wait to go to this sleepover. Exciting! He had told Gir he was coming, and Gir jumped with glee.
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. He went down to his room and hurried and got a pair

"Gir I am home!" Zim called, shutting the door to his base behind him.
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.

Dib looked back at Gaz and Gir, and he was sure that if Gaz woke up she would break the poor robot and kill both Zim and Dib for seeing them asleep like that, but with everything that has happened; he didn't know what to think. He watched as Zim went over to them and softly picked up Gir and laid him inside Gir's sleeping bag.
Zim then walked over to Dib. "Don't worry about them. I'm sure Gir went over there after Gaz fell asleep. At least now she won't kill anyone." Dib nodded in agreement. He stopped and held his neck as a stabbing pain shot through his body. He then realized that they were both still beat up from the fight.

I tried, I really did. But I guess it wasn't enough. This is all Zim's fault! He did this! I tried to stop him, I always have, but the world thought I was crazy! They called me insane! Now they believe me and the world is ruled by Zim and the Irken race.

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 woke up to the faint sound of sweet soft music. The movie was over and Gir was fast asleep, but Zim and Gaz were nowhere to be seen.
Where the heck are they?! He thought to himself as he got up, making sure not to wake up Gir, and looking around the tent. He looked all around the large tent and outside of it as well, but found no sign of the two. The music still played somewhere in the forest and it soothed Dib; as if he'd heard it before. Wait a minute! Music?! He dashed back inside of the tent. He looked around and couldn't find his sisters instruments. I knew I heard this music before! They played it before while I was asleep!!
He dashed outside in search of the source of the music. He was headed toward the lake as the music grew louder with each step he took. Soon he came to a clearing where he saw many animals; some sleeping, some swaying to the music.

Zim opened his eyes, and sat up, "It's nothing GIR. Just continue watching that disgusting show, and leave me ZIM, at peace." He then closed his eyes and rested once more.

Gaz on the other hand wished for Zim to end said silence. She'd rather him make the mess, that she would not have to help clean up. So she waited.
Zim- who could now sit up on his own, but only in moderation- sat up, and decided it was time to break the silence.

"I am no longer an invader, or at least and Irken one. They lied to me for so many years, the Tallest they told me a lie to just get rid of me. They banished me to this filthy ball of- of- DIRT." He cried.
"They told me that if I ever contacted them, or even tried to leave Earth they would kill me on the spot." He finished.
Gaz could not believe her ears, not an invader. Was lied to! Gaz then could not help but ask, "Why are you telling me this?"
Zim looked at her deep into her eyes, his blue contacts dark and sad, "Because you're the only pig-smelly that I can trust.
Gaz felt the strange urge to smile again, but resisted. They both remained silently staring at each other, now with a new respect.
The computer broke the silence, "My lord, it is almost midnight. I suggest you get some rest, you will need it for skool tomorrow."
Zim nodded in agreement, "Yes, so do you Gaz."

He hurriedly put on his pajama pants, and took off his shirt. Then he sank into his bed.
Little did Dib know that his sister has not come home? He did not know he was home all alone.
He closed his eyes in an attempt to sleep, but hours pasted and his mind wound not drift off to sleep. The reason was that he could not empty his mind of the single thought that haunted his mind since elementary skool. The image in his mind never changing. It was Tak.
This thought keep him up endless hours of the night, and once he did fall asleep, it haunted his nightmares. Why? He would always wonder why was the only girl who ever listened to him, who never made fun of him, why did she have to be an Irken? Why could he just fall in love with a normal human girl, who was not destroyed in his fight to save the world?
Why was the only girl to hate Zim, have to be an alien?
Dib sighed; she agreed with him

He and Ms. Bitters spoke in hushed tones, until she nodded and he left the room. Ms. Bitters spoke up in her loud, screechy voice, "Class, we have a new student joining us. Please be welcoming, as he might not be as bad as you kids turned out. Now come on in, whatever your name is." The door cracked open, and the new kid stepped in. Everyone's mouths dropped open. The new kid was AWESOME, and he hadn't even spoken a single word yet. He was very pale with black hair and blue-gray eyes, and he wore a nicely fitting long-sleeved shirt with an odd symbol on it - it

Chapter One: Over the Radio
Dib's radio was picking up an odd signal. He turned the knob a little to the left. A little to the right. There was a short whine, and the sound came through clear. "Your turn, Zim," said an odd voice - it was high and low at the same time. "You've been assigned to...Earth. One more thing, Zim. This is NOT a regular conquer mission...it's a-" The signal faded out. Dib's eyes widened. This wasn't what he thought it was, was it? It had to be.

Zim and Gaz visited each other like this every day for almost a month, much to Dib's chagrin. Dib kept trying to convince Gaz that her friend was an alien, but she would have nothing of it. "Shut up, Dib. If you knew him, you wouldn't think like that."
It was on a particular afternoon in school that something odd happened. It was free period, where students could do what they wanted. Most students chose to hang out in the hallways, but Zim and Gaz took advantage of this time in the library, studying for a test. Zim appeared to be focused on his work. Gaz's mind, however, drifted in other directions. Zim's deep blue-gray eyes were focused intently on the page, almost giving the appearance of scanning it. He was quietly mumbling to himself, perhaps to help himself remember the information. Watching him sit there like that, Gaz suddenly felt a pul

Zim and Dib stepped out of the Pokemon Center. Walking down the street were two women, in Team Plasma uniforms, strolling down the street.
"Hey, it's those creepy guys," whispered Dib. "What was that they were saying? Something about Pokemon rights?"
"Come on, let's follow them and see what they're up to."
Zim and Dib stalked down the road, hiding behind a small row of hedges as the two women passed.
"-New plan is very good, the boss was telling me the details earlier-"
Zim and Dib couldn't hear them anymore, as they were out of earshot and the row of hedges ended here.
"Looks like they're going in that building," said Dib.
Zim whipped out a pair of binoculars, focusing on the building they were going into.
"Looks like some kind of club, but it says 'Women Only' on the front door," informed Zim.

Zim sat on the couch, kneeling off to the side, doing his homework. He felt his first day on Earth had gone reasonable well, with the exception of that boy Dib completely psychoing out and assaulting him. Gir was curled up on the edge of the couch, and all was quiet. There was a knock on the door. Zim set his work down and went to answer it. Gir trotted after him. Zim was surprised at who was there.
It was the purple-haired girl who had been sitting near Dib. Gaz, was it? She stared upward, appearing to be trying to think of the right words. "Sorry about my brother earlier," she said, "He's really weird like that."

"Get OFF of me, Dib!" shouted Zim, pinned down by Dib.
"Never!" shouted Dib back, struggling to keep a hold on the Irken. They were deep into Zim's lab, and Zim was just about to fire a death ray at the Earth before Dib showed up and knocked him to the ground.
"I repeat, get OFF of me!"
"No way, not after-"
There was a flash of light, and it went black.

They both sat up. They were in a grassy area, right out side of a small town.
Dib jumped up, pointing accusingly at Zim. "What did you do?!" he demanded.
"Actually, I didn't do anything this time," said Zim, also standing up and brushing himself off.
They both looked around. "Well, where are we?" asked Dib.
Zim read a small sign. "It appears we're in some place called Nuvena Town."

Zim and Dib walked through the forest path, looking down at the trainer cards they'd been given by the lady from the Pokemon Center.
"I swear, that lady put 'Pokemon Breeder' under Trainer Type on purpose," said Dib. "You're lucky, you got 'Ace Trainer.'"
"Honestly, 'Pokemon Breeder' sounds like someone who really knows about Pokemon to me," said Zim.
"But to BREED them?!"
"I'll admit, that's a bit weird. Under personality, I got 'Serious.' What did you get?"
"'Naughty.' I swear, that lady has it out for me."
Zim was about to reply, but he was bowled over to the ground. When he recovered from the blow, he looked up at his attacker. It was a tiny, puppy-looking Pokemon. It was yipping happily, and and didn't seem at all combative.
"Hey, I think he likes you, Zim!"
"No kidding. Say, maybe this would be a good opportunity to catch more Pokemon." He pulled

Zim and Dib sat down on two of the little, cushioned stools lining the Pokemon Center. Dib leaned back in his chair, his Oshawatt sitting obediently by his feet. Several young trainers had their eyes glued to a television screen, which was broadcasting a report of a drive-by in Saffron City, Kanto.
Zim snickered quietly.
"What's so funny?" asked Dib, a bit offended that Zim was laughing at something like this.
"Oh, I'm not laughing at the shooting," said Zim, leaning back in his chair. "I'm laughing at the absolute stupidity of humans."
"What do you mean?" asked Dib.
"Humans: Turning on their own kind rather than working towards a common goal they're self-destructive! Much better things could be done with technology than using it to kill each other.

The two had been on a catching spree for the past hour or so, catching as many Pokemon as they could for their own teams and the Pokedex. Zim's team now included a Ponpur and a Pidove, and Dib's now had a Ponsage, along with the Pidove he just caught. "So, how many we have in the 'Dex so far?"

"Woo! We're making pretty good progress!"
"Now for the bad news," said Zim. "There are one hundred and thirty-two left to go."

"And that's just in Unova. There are six hundred and forty-nine Pokemon in the world total, so if we want to make a truly complete Pokedex, we're going to need about...six hundred and twenty-five more."

They left the library, going down the road.
"We're looking for Professor Juniper's lab, they say that you can get Pokemon from there," said Zim.
"I wonder what they'll be like," said Dib.
"The information I downloaded didn't have any pictures of them, so I wouldn't know."
Dib shrugged. "Well, I guess we'll find out soon enough."
"You know, you're not that bad when you aren't trying to kill me," said Dib.
"Neither are you." They stopped outside of a large building. Outside was a sign which read 'Professor Juniper's Research Lab.' There were two other kids, looking about Zim and Dib's age, hanging around the entrance.
One of them, a girl, piped up, "Hello! Are you two here to get Pokemon, too?"
Zim and Dib nodded.
The boy, a rather snobbish looking child, sneered. "I haven't seen you two around here before."

"It's a human, a very rare find nowadays...which means it's far more than you can afford." The salesman said, shooing the poor alien away with his claw like hands.
This was how it was every day, the human was packed up in his cage and set out like an item to be bought and people who noticed him were always too poor to buy him. The human had used to struggle and scream at the salesman in a strange language that nobody in their right minds knew, but after a couple of beatings he'd been silenced and he now obediantly sat in his cage cross legged, not even bothering to look up from his lap. Most would believe he was dead were it not for the calm rise and fall of his chest and occasional sick cough that escaped him. He was clothed in the skinny jeans he had been found in years ago and they were stained, ripped, and much to small for him.

He yelled furiously as he plopped down on the front step. Why wouldn't the alien answer his door? Usually he at least had Gir try and keep him busy.

I Hate You-ZaDr Chapter 2Dib was laying on the mattress of a magenta sheeted bed, clad in his familiar trench coat, neutral smiley face T-shirt, and of course new clean skinny jeans. His limbs were sprawled out over the bed and he was practically purring at the feeling of the soft clean sheets. Cleanliness was a luxury he'd gone without for years and finally being able to enjoy it was amazing.I Hate You-ZaDr Chapter 2 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The mattress felt as soft as a cloud to him...almost like one of those memory foam beds on earth, and the room was pleasantly warm. During his study of irken culture, he'd found that irkens were extremely similar to cold blooded creatures in the sense that they couldn't control their body temperature. Because of this important armada ships had a heater built into them. For invaders however they had a certain program installed into their PAK which kind of worked in the same way that humans regulated their body temperature.
The human rolled over onto his side, nuzzling his face into one of the oversized pillows. The room d

But then why did he have a feeling something bad had happened?Dying Tonight-ZaDr Part 2 in Short Stories More Like This
The mysterious phone call he'd received late that Tuesday wasn't helping with his suspicions. The irken had sounded broken when he'd hung up, almost on the verge of crying; but Irkens didn't cry. He'd never even seen the irken sad or close to being unoptimistic.
Dib gave out a loud sigh, which amazingly went unnoticed by the teacher, and stared at the clock. Ten more minutes and he'd go to Zim's house. He'd vowed to himself that he'd check on Zim today. Not that he was worried

"Dib, Do you think," There was a short pause and a shuddered breath could be heard from the cell phone, "Dib do you think I'm a good invader?" The irk finally asked.
"What does that have to do with anything?" The human asked irritatedly after a long pause. The alien was always so vague and it ticked him off almost as much as the alien's screaming.
"I just have to know." Zim replied softly, trying to keep his voice level and calm.

Trench Coat-ZaDr Zim stepped out of his house and into the frigid air, wearing his usual uniform. He hated earth winters, they were cold and made all the humans sniffly.Trench Coat-ZaDr in Fantasy More Like This
The alien's uniform was extremely thin and did nothing to block out the chill. Which is probably why he was so cold, but he'd never stoop so low as to buy a human coat. His race however had never heard of a coat before since it was always warm on his planet, so he went without anything to block out the elements. He refused to wraps his arms around himself, this would show that he was cold, and that would be a weakness. The irken walked down the sidewalk, occasionally slipping on a patch of ice or two before regaining his balance.
Dib stepped out of his own home, wrapped up in his warm trench coat. He didn't much like winters either, they were cold and he hated getting sick.
Reproductive Joos-ZaDr Part 5 With that decision Zim danced his way through the crowd and towards the utterly confused human. There were no words to describe how messed up Zim was at this point; he was seeing floating pandas and everything was really bright and colorful to him.

He giggled when he realized it was the Dib who had been so lucky as to have him fall in front of him, and he latched onto his leg.Reproductive Joos-ZaDr Part 5 in Short Stories More Like This
"Hiiiiiii, hyuuuuman. I missed yoooooooou." He said, nuzzling his cheek against the other's boot.

Dib opened the door to the Membrane household then tugged the alien inside. He finally relieved Zim of the trench coat wrapped around his head after he'd closed the door. He sighed in relief that had been much harder than he'd expected. The human walked over to the couch to sit down, completely content with letting Zim do whatever until he wasn't high anymore.
"Where are the snacks?!" Zim yelled right before Dib could sit down.
Dib let out another sigh, though this time it was more aggravated. "They're in the kitchen." He replied gently.
"Can we watch a MOVIE?!" Zim asked suddenly becoming very hyper once more.
"Fine what do you want to watch?" Dib asked, rubbing at his temples agitatedly. He felt like he was babysitting a 5 year old.
Reproductive Joos-ZaDr Part 2 "What is this reproductive joos?" Zim mumbled to himself as he headed towards the Hi-Skool. "Where does it come from?"

Dib tackled Zim to the ground and sat on him declaring a loud "VICTORY FOR EARTH!"
"GET OFF OF ME DIB-BEAST YOU HAVE INTERRUPTED ZIM'S THOUGHTS OF REPRODUCTIVE JOOSES AND SUCH!" The alien screamed flailing his limbs aggressively.

Kage climbed to the highest part of the roof and sat down; he felt like he needed some alone time to think. He felt afraid; he didn’t know what his parents were planning, but it didn’t sound very easy.
He closed his eyes and listened to the sounds of the night. The wind blowing through the grass and the trees, crickets here and there, things of that sort. They were calming and peaceful, something nice.
Kage opened his eyes, and thought he saw something in the woods. He grew alert and looked over in the direction where he thought he had seen it. It had been small and subtle, but there was something.

They were like small video clips that played in one’s mind briefly.
Kagekao reached out his claws and sunk them into the bark of a tree. He pulled himself upward, climbing higher. From the ground, Kurai watched his son. Finally, he reached the highest branch of the moderately sized tree.

Kagekao had managed to sneak onto a flight headed to Japan. It was a long flight, but he managed to stay hidden throughout it. However, it was boring; so he did decide to have some fun towards the end of the flight.
After the plane had landed and the passengers were waiting to be let out, Kage had snuck up on two of the airline staff. He killed them silently, and then put their bloody bodies on the cart that held drinks and food. He then shoved the cart down the aisle, sending it rolling away with the bodies on it, spilling blood onto the floor as it sped by the passengers.
The passengers had panicked and started screaming and running around. Kage, satisfied with his work, made his way away from the scene and towards the cargo hold. People had already begun taking the bags out, so the door was open and he left.

They walked through the city, avoiding civilians and going at a quick pace. As they walked, Kage looked around. He could remember this place, he could remember climbing these buildings and preying on these people.
He could also remember the shinigami. Being in this city again, Kage could feel that dread that he had felt when he was younger and alone here; the dread that Scollex could be around any corner, ready and waiting to attack him.
Whenever turning a corner or hearing someone approach, Kage unsheathed his claws a little subconsciously, ready for a fight. Whenever he heard footsteps behind them he always expected to see those three large pairs of wings again.

When night finally arrived, Kage climbed into bed to go to sleep. After a few long minutes, he felt himself drifting off; but someone opened the door to his room and rushed inside. It was Yuki; she shut the door silently and then looked at Kage.

Kage sat up and yawned. Looking around the room, he saw that he was still alone. A big part of him had hoped that he would wake up to find someone else here, but there was no one.
