ZaGrZim sat at the lunch table observing the Dib. He was talking to his sister about something. He seemed to care deeply about her. Zim shuddered. He'd kill himself before he cared about another living creature. But the Dib had to go; maybe the sister was the key. Zim smirked to himself, a plan forming in his head.More Like This
When school was out Zim ran up to Gaz, "You look especially er," He though up something that might be flattering, "dark today, Gaz"
"Go away Zim." Gaz replied angrily.
Zim was about to try and say something potentially irritating, when the Dib messed it up, "Zim! Get away from my sister!" He shoved Zim into a puddle of the horrible earthly liquid that burned Zim's bare skin.
"Gyaaagh!" Zim screeched. It burned terribly and he had forgotten to shower in paste that morning.
Dib laughed at Zim's discomfort. Gaz was jabbing away at her Game Slave. What was Zim's plan? He turned to Gaz, "Why was Zim talking to you?" He inquired.
"How should I know? I think he was trying to compliment
ZAGR - Feelings pt 3The next day, Zim had been waiting at skool for Gaz. He had memorized all that he was going to say to her the night before and was prepared to respond if Gaz had happened to reject his offer.More Like This
But Gaz, nor Dib arrived at skool.
"I must have come far too early..." he said.
And indeed he did. It was 5:30 in the morning. And skool didn't start till' 7:45.
He was all alone. It was completely quiet. So, with the time he had, he decided to rehearse his speech to the silence around him.
Nearby, hiding behind a tree, was the dark shadow of a figure that was watching Zim.
"Alien...." it whispered.
Zim didn't hear or notice the shadow.
After he thought he was done rehearsing, he talked about his mission.
"If I persaude Gaz, no longer will the Dib foil my plans! Considering the fact we both hate him.... Together we shall conquer and rule this Earth! As one.." And he bursted out again into evil laughter.
The shadow figure gasped. "Thats my mission! How dare he tak

Dib went after him, but got caught in the crowd of kids behind him.
His enemy got away from him. He remembered his sister's words. So he let him go... for now.
He didn't know about Zim's plans for Gaz, however. So he assumed Zim would just be in solitude again.
For once, he was going to leave Zim alone.
Zim searched for Gaz. She was no where to be found.
She was sitting by herself away from all the children outside.
He saw her and ran over to her. His shadow went right over her.
"Hello, Gaz!" he grinned.
"Hi Zim... what do you want?" Gaz said, playing her game.
"Oh, I just came to uh... give you an offer!"
"To stop being stupid and leave us alone?" she said.
"No..." he frowned. "I see that you are nothing like your most annoying and ugly brother."
"Thats for sure."
"Being that, Zim would like

"Zim's an alien. I mean, look at him! He has green skin! And there's that thing on his back... what is that?! No other kid has it! He's no normal kid! And you know something else? He's got no ears! Or nose!! What kid has no ears or nose?!"
Dib continued to stare at Lei. He couldn't believe what he was hearing.
"And thats not even real hair he's got on his head! Its a wig. Gee, I wonder what would happen if I pulled that thing off right in the middle of class..." then she turned to Dib and saw his expression. "Oh. I sound really crazy, don't I? I'm sorry.."
Dib shook his head and smiled. "No. No!"
"Zim IS an alien! You're not crazy at all!! You see exactly what I see!!" He practically leaned over towards her and got up real close to her face.
Lei looked at him awkwardly.
Dib backed away. "S-Sorry. I uh... Didnt mean to do that."
She blushed lightly. "Its ok."

Then suddenly she heard a voice in the back of her head talk to her.
Dont say things like that about Zim!
"What?!" Gaz said out loud. A few kids turned around and looked at her. She tilted her head down and pressed the pause button on her game. She looked up to see that the kids walked away. She turned around.
"Who said that?" she asked.
"Who're you?" She looked around. But there was no one there who was talking. "Where are you?"
I'm in your head. I'm your conscience. I'm the good side of you!
"Really now. Thats stupid."
You'd better believe it. And I have something to say to you, Gaz Membrane!"
She wasn't believeing one thing she was hearing. "Oh!" Gaz put her hands on her face. "What does the great imaginary voice in my head possibly want to say to me?" she said sarcasti

"What's wrong with you, Gaz?! How could you take Zim's side?! Don't you know he's trying to take over Earth?! We're trying to save our planet from his plans, don't you remember?! WHAT IS GOING ON?!?!"
Gaz lost her cool. She got tired of her brother questioning her. So she stopped, turned her head toward him, and gave him a quick slap across his face.
"Let me ask you something. Will you shut the hell up?!" Gaz grumbled and continued walking.
Dib rubbed his cheek. He didn't give up. "But Gaz-!! WAIT!!!" He ran after her.
"Will you at least tell me why you said what you said?"
Gaz stopped in her tracks and sighed. "You wanna know why? Because maybe it would help you with your life a little bit. All you do is chase Zim around! That is all you do!! Let me give you some tiny advice. Zim is a moron. He won't conquer the Earth... he always fails. So you should stop chas

He sat quietly by himself underneath a tree during recess at skool. Dib was spying on him. As always.
Dib's sister, however, Gaz, was up against the fence playing her Game Slave 2 and not caring about anything.
"Look at him, Gaz! He must be up to something!" Dib said to her.
"Yeah yeah..." She continued playing. "Whatever."
"I've got an idea... I'll be right back!" Dib whizzed off in another direction. He returned with a full water bottle and splashed it onto Zim.
Zim's skin began to burn and he immediately started screaming.
Dib laughed at him. "You weak alien, Zim!! I still can't believe that your race can't even handle water!"
Zim's screaming reached Gaz's ears and she opened her eyes to reveal two shimmering gold irises.
She turned to her brother and looked at him angrily. "Don't you have something better else to do with your life t

I just breathe.
When my mind feels clear, I start to feel okay. It's the same. Everyday.
I lay down on my bed, burning holes into the ceiling with my stare. I procrastinate the little homework I have until the last minute.
Dib, from beyond my thick door, notifies me that dinner is ready. As moronic as he's been for my whole life, I find him useful.
As soon as that moron stops the car, I jump out of it like he's telling my some "facinating" story about something paranormal again.
Desperately trying to get to my locker, I run into someone. Someone tall, someone purely ominous, someone with light green skin, I assume has been lurking the hallways since early this morning.

The attack on the Spinners ended up being a mistake. Though many spinners were brutally slaughtered, far too many gnawers were lost as well. Eventually he was forced to order a retreat; he would need every soldier he had if the Warrior was as mighty as the prophesy hinted. He now firmly believed that the Warrior was responsible for Ripred's death. Who else would be able to take out a Rager and live?
Finally he received news from a moth sent by Bloodripper: The Warrior is closing in on The Maw. Troops need to be posted there immediately.
Gorger wasted no time in gathering up many of his finest soldiers who were not currently in battle. He had them spread out in the cliffs that overlooked The Maw and the pit that held his Overlander, telling them to wait for the signal. Contrary to what his generals advised him, he waited with them. He wanted to see the Warrior for himself. He wanted to see him die.
They waited a long time. To Gorger it felt like years passed. Every once in a whil

The next two months were quiet. The war had been spiraling down over the last eight months but now it seemed as though another time of unofficial peace had been declared. Gorger found this to be most satisfactory. His old troops could rest and regroup while new troops were trained. His generals could plot and scheme to their hearts content without feeling like they had to come up with the usual last-minute strategy to impress him with. This lull also gave him time to spend with his new pups.
They were wonderful little things. He somehow knew that there would be no deaths in this litter; the whole feel of the situation was different. Fallenstar was the most active he had ever seen her. She would actually join him and Lurker when they played with the pups until she grew tired and would sit down to rest. Soon enough she would be joining them again though; chasing the pups around in dizzy circles of glee.
It was a time where Gorger felt that all was well. The war was not troubling him and

A month later he started receiving a small trickle of intelligence from Bloodripper, who in turn received it from his newest informant Henry. Gorger was pleased that at least this scheme had worked. His mood significantly lightened, though his explosive temper continued to grow worse over time. The passing of time seemed to become more and more apparent to him and he started looking into the only human literature that any gnawer was ever concerned with: Sandwich's prophesies.
He had known about them since he was a pup but he had never truly cared about them nor even given them much thought. However, for some unknown reason, they suddenly became important to him. It was the Prophesy of Gray that irked him the most. It was all mystery and vagueness. There was no way to tell when it would take place. He started dreaming about it unfolding during his reign. The Spinners would turn against him, he’d have to face off against every creature of the Underland with nothing but his own claw

It was two months after Forfend's failure that Bloodripper appeared before King Gorger again. Gorger was not as eager to set eyes on him as he had the last time he showed up. In his opinion Bloodripper had yet to do his job. He lounged on his side, attempting a relaxed look as the black and brown gnawer stood before him. Those unreadable eyes were starting to get to him...
“State your business and then leave,” Gorger was not interested in having the gnawer stay long. Bloodripper inclined his head in a gesture of respect and rasped, “I heard about what happened with the Hissers. I've been trying to reason with them but they, regrettably, no longer desire a treaty. Such shallow, easily swayed creatures...they would not have made suitable allies to your cause.”
Gorger snorted angrily, “Is that what you have been doing all this time? And who are you to say who would make a good ally to me or not?”
As if sensing his anger, Bloodripper lowered his voice to

A year rushed by like the river itself. As a king Gorger became stronger, fiercer, and more ruthless. Thoughts of his own death weighed heavily on his mind and Fallenstar's quiet, peaceful presence kept him from making stupid decisions out of anger or fear multiple times.
As a queen Fallenstar became even more withdrawn than before. Fortunately Gorger's presence drew out her inner strength. She never had a problem telling him that a particular strategy he developed would not work or that he was becoming distracted with the unnecessary details of war. She kept him on task and focused. Together they were a force to be reckoned with and neither could imagine life without the other.
After thinking on the advice given to him by the gnawer Bloodripper, he eventually decided that he could survive having his young, adult son wander around with some trusted bodyguards like the gnawers Bloodlet and Jawbreak. Fallenstar was not so convinced but Lurker had begged that she let him go out and she ev

“Little Lurker”, as Forfend so fondly called him, was not allowed outside the Bowels on his own as the months passed. Gorger made sure that this was how it always would be until he said otherwise. He did not want to take any chances with his only living son and he didn't trust him to stay out of trouble.
At first the young male had seemed content with staying around the Bowels but after about a year had passed he became more restless and actively tried to escape. Gorger was often too busy with checking on the Overlander's progress, getting rid of Nibblers, and running his kingdom to do anything about it. Fallenstar kept a mental “eye” on Lurker and was usually the only reason why he was caught when trying to sneak out.
Once again Fallenstar informed him that Lurker had managed to get out. However before Gorger could send out gnawers to bring him back, his son was brought back by a gnawer he had never seen before. This gnawer had brown and black blotched fur and
