I trusted the scan to work…mostly anyhow. I swallowed as I waited for the light to finish scanning us. Dib seemed more interested and focused on me, instead of his own fate. I mean I DID tell him that nothing would happen to him…which it shouldn't, but still he held no hesitation to just sit there and watch me. Then I felt the morph begin. The sting of the light that blinded my vision was strangely invigorating. I felt that my eyes were being rinsed of all there color then suddenly grew back but a smaller tunnel of vision like my lenses. All the while, my skin was burning. Not like the cooking burn of rain water, but like my skin was melting inside out. I felt my lekkus split at the end and unravel into threads that felt like they were growing all over my head. It did NOT feel good. Thankfully, sense my lekkus have always been damaged to sensitivity from my experimentation days on Irk, it probably hurt a lot less than it could have. The tips

I was terrified for a moment when I stepped into the tube. Zim could have been easily tricking me to destroy myself, but it’s been so long. Why would he try to kill me now? He tapped some codes into the touch screen thingy. It was all in irken so I had no idea what any of it said. Afterwards, he walked towards the other tube. He looked so worried. With his antenna whimpered to the back of his head, he was the very image of vulnerable. This was crazy. Why did he even want to be able to be human? Maybe it was for a better disguise. I honestly didn’t care much. I wanted to see if it would work. I wondered for a second on why he didn’t just steal a human if that’s all he needed. He hated asking for someone’s help so why not take someone against their will?
Just as all these question jumbled through my spinning head I glanced over at Zim. He was so pinned up in the tube. His shoulders were tightly pressed near his head in a clinch, almost as

‘W….what the hell did he just call me…?’ I asked myself as Zim drug me out the house by my sleeve. The sky had gotten a little purplish as the night worked its way around. I hadn’t realized how long I had been at Zim’s house. I had to walk with Zim for a little since I parked kind of far. Zim didn’t have a drive way, so I parallel parked a little passed it. He walked slightly behind me, but held onto my sleeve still. He eyed my car and I blushed at my embarrassing ride. It was a bucket, I knew that, but I had forgotten about how Zim had high expectations for mechanics. His own ship had engines that surpassed all on Earth so there was no way I could have impressed him, but I wished it at least wasn’t a beaten up old ass Camaro. Don’t get me wrong, I love my car. I just felt inferior to Zim’s technological experience and tastes.
As I glanced over my shoulder, Zim didn’t seem to mind my car. He wa

When I inquired to look at Dib’s body he became unresponsive for a moment but then his jaw seemed to unhinge. “What’s wrong with your face?” I asked, an eyebrow raised.
“N-nothing. I uh…no I don’t think that’s necessary.” Dib stated with large eyes and a cracked voice. Had I asked something strange of him? Irkens had no issue of nudity. It couldn’t be a modesty thing. All the information Gir had researched for me through the TV promptly showed that almost every age of human was open to being nearly naked. All the young and older, female or male; all dressed half naked on the screen of public TV so it couldn’t be a sacred thing. Why was this such an issue for the Dib thing? Unless he was hiding something!! That has to be it! Maybe he DID get hurt somehow in the scanner and said nothing due the excitement of my own breathing issue.
Zim shook his head and leaned closer into Dib’s space. “No,

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

"I.....brought the pizza." was all I could get out. Zim’s alarm system was off, but I don’t know why I just walked inside. Why didn’t I knock? Why didn’t I knock?! Now I was stuck in what felt like time, worse than when Zim actually got me stuck in that time vortex. The skin I couldn’t stop thinking of was in front of me, bare. I couldn’t stop staring. I must have zoned out because I didn’t notice he had moved until he was in my face.
"Dib! Are you alright?" his gloveless hands were on my shoulders, shaking me back and forth slightly, probably trying to bring me back to Earth. "Your huge face is so white! What's wrong?" why was he half naked? Why did he take off his hoodie and his gloves in the livingroom?! No, it was my fault I should have knocked. "Dib-worm!" Zim called out once more.
"I couldn’t find chocolate pizza so I bought chocolate bars too." It was the only thing I could think of saying. It’s what I had

Through the damned tangles of the cottony-earthly torturous clothing, I could hear the door open. I tugged off the hooded cloth swiftly to see the Dib human staring idiotically at the door, pizza and chocolate in hand. I knew as soon as I saw him I shouldn’t have left the field offline. He babbled about getting the food and sorry for one thing or another, but everything he said seemed to spill out of his mouth more than actually speak about anything. I could feel his eyes on my chest and it was starting to make me panic from his lack of attention. Grabbing a hold of his large broad shoulders and gave him a few strong shakes, bringing him back to the filthy planet from wherever his mind had hid away. My toe talons were at the very tip as I reached to clasp ahold of him. He had gotten so much taller, the bastard.
When he woke up and began to be a little more normal I instructed him to sit down on the couch unit and took my clothes with me to a close

The ride to the lab was intense. I kept feeling like something was wrong. Zim seemed to be acting stranger than usual. He was touching his face and breathing uneasy. I knew I shouldn’t have let him have his way…This was more dangerous than he realized. What if his hood slipped off? What if his glasses broke? Some of the most curious scientific minds work there and I doubt they’d believe he was wearing contacts. I couldn’t help, but clinch the steering wheel while I tried to calmly instruct Zim to stay close. I was relieved to hear that he wasn’t about to argue or ask too many questions.
When we got to the gate, an officer leaned in my window and checked my id. He didn’t seem to care who was next to me. No one argued about what I did at the lab thankfully. I was the head scientist’s son. Have to admit; it has its benefits sometimes. Zim had been quiet for once and for that I was eternally grateful. It wasn’t until I put

I awoke to the alarm on my phone blaring at me from my side table. I reached over in a grumpy manner and picked it up to press snooze, my sleep filled eyes burning from the bright light of my screen. It was 5:30am and too early for the sun to be out. I stopped the noisy alarm and let the phone fall out of my hand. I curled back into my covers, groaning. I knew I had to get up to go to work. Every time Dad lets me leave early from work, he always expects me to be early the next day. I sighed as I snuggled my face back into my pillow, curling around the warm lump of covers next to me. I thought I felt something prick my nose lightly and I swatted it away before rubbing the tickled area. It was then I felt the touch of a soft smaller hand grace my shoulder. The ‘pillow’ I was snuggling up against was moving and cuddling closer to me.
“Oh right. Fuck=” I cursed to myself, feeling stupid I had forgotten Zim’s presence. I sighed before s

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

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

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 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..”

Dib’s eyes widened in shock at the split second where Zim’s old self had just flashed across his face. His jaw gaped as those words rung mercilessly through his head, and he could honestly admit to himself that those words were sincere. It was then that he had the sudden desire to help the suffering Irken rather than fight him and try to rid himself of him for good. A moment later, the boy grabbed hold of the Irken’s arms and pulled him towards his chest before standing. “I’ll… try, Zim..” He whispered before running downstairs and screaming at the computer. “Help me fix him!! There has to be some way to stop this!”
"Are you crazy??" The computer questioned. "That thing is vicious!!" It cautioned him, as if the boy wasn’t already aware. Zim was already screeching and gurgling again from being restrained, thrashing back and forth in his arms.

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

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

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 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 5 With that decision Zim danced his way through the crowd and towards the utterly confused human.

"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.

"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 stepped inside to find Gir sitting on the couch in his dog suit, slurping greedily at some kind of poop soda, practically sucking his own face in with the force of the greedy slurps.Always-ZaDr Chapter 8 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The robot dislodged it's mouth from the straw sticking out of the beverage and smiled wide at the human, "Oh hiiiiii theeeere," he squeaked, jumping off the couch to squeak his way over to the human, having to tilt nearly his entire body back to look up at the big headed teen.

He almost wanted to abort the "mission" in finding out what the irken wanted, though he was a stubborn human.

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.

ZaDR - The ParkIt was a sunny Saturday. The air was warm and there was a light breeze. Dib decided to go to the park. And of course, he dragged his favorite little alien along.ZaDR - The Park in Short Stories More Like This
"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
ZaDR- CuriosityDib watched Zim curiously as he saw the irken remove his wig for only a brief moment to massage his antennae before looking around and quickly putting it back on. No one seemed to have noticed; no one except a certain black-haired kid.ZaDR- Curiosity in Romance More Like This
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?

"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."
"Well okay, I suppose it's worth asking. It's ten minutes until the first bell. Do you think that's enough?"
"Of course it is. Let's go." Zim grabbed his wrist and dragged him through th
ZaDR - Homecoming Part 2A few weeks passed, and soon, it was time to vote for homecoming king and queen. Dib managed to convince Zim that they should vote for someone other than themselves, since that wasn't very modest. After much deliberation, they agreed to cast both of their votes on Zita and her boyfriend. Dib even managed to keep Zim from demanding to know who voted for him afterward.ZaDR - Homecoming Part 2 in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The day of the dance came. Since they were candidates, they had to go to all of the events before the actual dance, such as the pep rally, basketball, and football games. Though they weren't interested in sports, they agreed anyway. They didn't have much choice, and besides, the pep rally might be fun. It was where the king and queen would be crowned.
"Or king and king," Zim reminded Dib as they walked to the gym. They were already wearing their semi-formal clothes, having changed right after their last class.
"Or king and king," Dib agreed. They entered the gym. Since they were candidates, they had their own area where th

Closing his eyes tightly, Zim whimpered at the blows from the two guards standing above him.
“I think it's time to bring this traitor in now.”
“I agree. And did Tallest Red want us to bring in the half-breed as well?”
“Nahh, he said to leave him. He's got nothing to do with this.”
The second guard turned to Dib. “Consider yourself lucky, half-breed.” he said before turning to help his partner hoist Zim up and drag him out of the bathroom, leaving Dib curled up on the floor and staring into space, as though not conscious any longer despite his eyes still being partially open. If anything, he was in shock, his entire body in severe pain now and covered in blood.
Meanwhile, back on the Massive, Red reclined back in his chair, a large grin on his face. “Looks like I finally won, Zim.” he said to himself before cackling evilly.
“Sir, we have just received word from the two Irken guards sent to arrest ex-invader Zim. The

Following Dib's lead, Zim willingly allowed the other to pull him down into a sitting position on the grass before staring up at the sky as an explosion of colors danced across it.
Sighing out tiredly once he had the Irken sitting down next to him, Dib let his eyelids slip closed as he slumped up against Zim, panting now, all the adrenaline that had been coursing through his veins from Zim screaming when the first fireworks had started going off leaving him now.
Zim wrapped an arm loosely around Dib. "I love you..." he said in a quiet voice, not wanting to ruin that moment.
"I...I lo-" Dib didn't even manage to finish his sentence as everything suddenly blurred and went black on him.
"...Dib?" Zim turned to Dib confused. "Dib?" he shook him a little, eyes growing wide and breathing quickening when he didn't move.
The kicking in his stomach only growing worse, causing him to curl in on himself a bit, Dib breathed heavily against Zim.

Refusing to let Zim move from his spot, Dib pulled himself up into Zim's lap and wrapped his arms around the other's waist. "No, it's not! No, it's not!" he sobbed even more, shaking his head and clinging to the Irken, not wanting to pull away despite the wave of heat washing over his body.
Kissing Dib, Zim then shook his head. "Look, Dib. You're burning up...This is my fault...It's because I'm here..." he said.
Afraid the other would try to leave him, Dib could only cling to Zim tighter at those words.
Zim kissed him again. "But I'll make it up to you. I promise...I just have to leave you here for a while...Rose already said it was okay for you to stay..." he said.
Blinking the tears out of his eyes, Dib could only sniffle wetly before lifting his gaze up to stare at Zim. "W-Will you be back for dinner? I don't want you to miss it because of me!" he exclaimed, squeezing his eyes tightly shut and shaking his head.

Smiling at Dib’s words and the small penguin imitation he was doing, Zim leaned in to kiss him gently. “I'm strong enough to carry you, Diblet.” he demonstrated by lifting Dib up bridal style. Faltering a little, he then grinned, straining a bit. “See?” he said through somewhat grit teeth.
“Well, yeah, maybe now, but are you still going to be able to when I'm farther along? It may seem like it's a long ways off from now, but before you even know it I'll be in my seventh or eighth month and need a disguise to even go out of the house because at that point no clothes will be able to hide it.”
Zim shook his head. “Then I shall stay inside with you.” he said, not minding himself if they spent a few months locked up in his base together.
“We can't stay inside the entire time though...I thought you wanted us to sign up for those classes pregnant couples go to to prepare.”
“Oh right…” Zim had forgotten about t

His antennae wilting, Dib could only shudder at Zim's response.
Nuzzling him gently, Zim sighed. "It'll be okay, Dib. I'll be there the whole time to make sure you're okay." he said, trying to keep the other calm.
"But you promised me nobody else would have to see me naked!" Dib exclaimed as he pulled the covers off of himself.
Again, Zim sighed. "I know I did, Dib...But you don't have to be completely naked..." he said, trying to convince Dib anyways.
"No! I don't want anyone else in the room with us!" Dib pulled the covers back over himself stubbornly.
"What about Jack and Rose?"
"Umm...Zim?" Purple came up to the Irken and placed a hand on his shoulder before leading him back over towards the door. "I think it's pretty obvious your mate isn't going to agree to this no matter what you say. Perhaps it would be better if we just got the medic drone here before he can talk you out of it. After all, we both know it's for the best that you

In a bit of a daze still, Zim shook his head at Dib's question. "Oh, yeah! Yeah, I'm coming." he hopped up and rushed to the door, still a bit shaken.
Rose eyed Zim curiously. "Everything alright, Zim? You look like you've just seen a ghost." she said, referring to how pale he had suddenly become.
"I'm fine!" Zim snapped, grinning at her to prove it.
Confused now, Rose blinked down at him. "A-Alright then..." she turned to Dib. "And how about you, Dib? Are you feeling alright?" she asked.
"Hmm?" Dib lazily blinked his eyes up at her before letting them drop. "O-Oh...Yeah...I'm fine..." he said in a somewhat tired voice.
"Sooo...Are we going to eat?" Zim asked, changing the subject.
"Oh...Yes. Follow me. I have the table set downstairs in the living room." Rose said, leading them downstairs.
Curious as to what they would be eating, Zim followed.
As she led them down the s

Tightening his grip on the bed sheets beneath him, Dib could hardly bear to even look at Zim in that moment as the other's actions had been anything but called for. "I can understand you being mad at Stella, but did you really have to be so hard on her younger sister?" he pulled his knees in to himself, as though to protect his own smeets from Zim's brash nature.
Zim looked at Dib completely lost. "What are you talking about?" he asked, Dib's body language only confusing him even more.
"I'm talking about you pushing her six-year-old sister off the bed just because she touched your antennas!"
Zim looked around the room and then back at Dib. "What?" he looked worried for the other now. "Are you okay?" he then asked, not knowing what Dib was yelling at him for or what had set him off in the first place.
"What do you mean 'What'? You just shoved Stella's sister off the bed! Quit acting like you have no idea what I'm talking about!" Dib glared slightly at Zim, irritated by how lightly the o

Zim froze at his computer's words. "Wh-What?" the word escaped him, his eyes wide before he glared up at the computer. "What growths?! Show me the scans!" he demanded, pointing one finger at the ground in front of him.
"Fiiine...You know, you could learn to say 'please' every once in a while..." the computer said in a slightly irritated voice, especially considering it was getting yelled at despite doing what Zim had asked him to do. Bringing up the scans nonetheless however, it displayed for Zim a full body scan of Dib that revealed three unknown, egg-shaped forms in the lower half of Dib's abdomen.
Paling at the sight of them, Zim instantly began playing around with his fingers nervously. "B-But...No! Th-That can't be what I think it is...C-Can it?" he asked, looking up at the computer worried and swallowing. "D-Does he have cancer?" he then

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

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
ZaDr- His Little Alien Zim and Dib had been together for quite some time now, but why couldn't he tell anyone yet? Was he embarassed? No. He was afraid the moment people knew, Zim will leave him. Zim WAS still an alien after all, but even if Dib was forced to leave Earth just to be with his beloved Zim, he surely would.ZaDr- His Little Alien in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The school bell rang loudly as Dib snapped out of his thoughts. He frowned at the thought of going to yet ANOTHER damn class. He hated school, and everything about it. He hated his classmates, his teachers, and even his stupid locker. But the one thing he didn't hate, was his Zim. Zim. The thought made him smile, something not a lot of people got to see of him, so when the usual girls that made fun of him in the hall saw this, they just sat there and wondered.
Since Dib was so deep in thought, he didn't realize the little "human" coming towards him, so he accidently knocked Zim down. "You filthy human! How dare you-" Zim stopped shouting once he realized wh

The bell interupted his thoughts. Zim stood on the desk as always and yelled, "I leave you all to go home!" No one responded. No one ever did. Zim was on the sidewalk making his way home, when suddenly he heard footsteps behind him. He stopped, they stopped. He continued walking, and so ddi they. He began running, but then tripped over absolutely nothing. "Filthy unstable Earth!" Zim's head was pounding. He felt a hand on his back and it startled him. He jumped up and hissed at the stalker. Dib. "oh, it's you Dib-stink." Dib rolled his eyes at the nickname. They were in highschool now, shouldn't he have come up with something atleast a little decent?
Dib rose off his knee and brushed the dirt off his jeans. Zim straightened up and starred a minute at the hum
