I sat on the floor pressed against the couch in Zim’s house. My breathing was no longer in my control as I replayed the last words I had said over and over again. I love him? Was that true? I don’t even know what love is… It’s far too illogical to love, thus I has sworn never to love. But… Zim and I have been balancing on the tight rope of love and hate since the day he arrived. The small monster had given me a purpose that I hadn’t had before. Skool gave me no purpose, it was far too easy. Friends? Well, I have never had any. Family? I suppose Gaz gives me some purpose as well, but she can take care of herself, and always has. Zim, however, he was an evil being from another planet that wanted to destroy my planet. If that isn’t a reason to be alive then I don’t know what is. I felt it was my duty to stop him from taking over Earth because I am the only one who sees through the disguise. From the age of ten years old I w

More human? Did I hear Zim right? I looked down at the alien and cocked my head in confusion. His large eyes narrowed on me before he dropped his antenna toward the back of his head.
“More human? But...” I trailed off. I knew there was something more going on. I have known this evil being for years, and though I have given up on hunting him, I know that this isn't right. “Zim, whats going on?”
He looked up at me in shock, “You doubt Zim?”
“Of course I doubt you,” I scoffed. “You're an evil alien!” I rubbed the crease on my nose with my middle finger. “Dammit, Zim, I don't know if I trust you. I know your hurt and I know your feeling human emotions, but that doesn't mean you're not still plotting my murder!”
Zim hissed and stomped to his kitchen. “You humans make no sense to Zim! Just a moment ago you wished to help, now you believe I wish to harm you!” He shoute

I stepped into the invaders home, and felt overcome with an odd sense of victory. Despite our friendship this was the first time the irken had invited me inside his home base. I looked down at him, Earth's atmosphere had give him a chance to grow to about 5 feet tall which was still fairly small. Perhaps it just appeared this way to be because I am about between 5'10” and 5'11” feet tall. As if a ton of bricks hit me, I realized that Zim was not disguised. This was one of the rare times I saw the alien in his normal form. His magnetic eyes suddenly met mine and I could see the sadness in them. “My leaders... called.”
“I know,” I said slowly. Surely he knew about the cameras, right?
He sat on his couch and stared at the floor, “Zim feels things inside him, things that he does not understand, and does not like.”
I frowned... what could I do? Zim is an alien, but the more time he spends on earth the more he seems to a

In the seven years Zim had been on earth, I had never seen him give up on even the most stupid of tasks. Today was the first day Zim had heard back from his leaders in nearly a year. I watched from my computer as Zim began to tell them everything he had done in that time, including how Earth's climate had made him taller. I stared at the screen despite the burn in my eyes as Zim's excitement suddenly died and was replaced with an emotion I was sure he didn't understand.
“What do you mean?” Zim said to his leaders. I felt my heart drop into my stomach as they repeated what they had said. It all made sense now, everything Zim had ever done made sense. He was looking for acceptance from his leaders the same way I had looked for it in my father, and my peers. I understand his pain, even though he did not.
“Zim? Did you hear us?” The one with purple eyes said.
“The Irken Armada doesn't need you anymore. You're not a part of our people an
Like You Wanna Be Loved Teeth raked down his neck and forced a shiver all the way up his spine. His skin was burning, scalding, everywhere the irken’s tongue grazed him. This wasn’t right… They should stop. They really needed to stop.More Like This
“Z-Zi-!” he couldn’t even get his name out. Every protest died on his lips- not that they would be very convincing with the way his heart pounded violently inside his chest. He was positive the alien could feel it. Probably even hear it.
Another sharp bite to the throat, followed by that sinfully soft tongue, and blood was rushing everywhere it shouldn’t be. His cheeks, his wounds, his heart, his….
Yeah. This needed to stop.
With a grunt of effort, Dib managed to force a change in their position. He leaned forward and rolled, pinning Zim’s smaller form to the ground. Both of his wrists fit easily into one of Dib’s hands. Ah, how time had changed the human boy… if this had been one of their regular fi

It’s that time of year again where love is like an airborne plague. Everywhere you look there are cutesy heart shaped stuff in a spectra of whites, pinks and reds. All the local supermarkets are struggling to keep up with the high demand of meats and are normally sold out at the end of the day. It’s Valentine’s Day.
When he first arrived on this planet twelve years ago, Zim hadn’t the slightest idea about human traditions. In no time at all he had come to find out that most humans celebrate holidays. On the days leading up to the festivities there is spirit everywhere and those who don’t partake in the merriment are looks on as strange. This means that to keep up his mascaraed of a normal teenage human Zim would be forced to learn about the most popular ones. He knows all about the Christmas lobster man, the bunny of Easter and the spooky All Hallows Eve, but it seems the rest don’t hold as much importance and
