    Summary

    Get in, get the goods, get out. That was the advice Dib and Zim had been given about the black market planet called Currus. With the Voot Cruiser out of commission and Zim's PAK in need of repair, their plans to pursue their new nemesis - a former Control Brain engineer hellbent on reviving the fallen Irken Empire - are temporarily on hold. But that's nothing a little shopping trip can't fix, right?

    Unfortunately, what starts as a supply run swiftly transforms into something far deadlier. The boys find themselves in a high-stakes round-the-world race, facing off against a field of bloodthirsty competitors for the chance to reclaim a vital treasure.

    Many dangers await Dib and Zim within the unforgiving wilds of Currus, including a childhood adversary, hungry alien beasties, and an ever-expanding lie that threatens to shatter their hard-won partnership for good.

    Summary

    Dib knows this script well, and could probably recite it on the spot if prompted. What he expects Membrane to say is ‘so I'm making sure foodio and clembrane are okay with preparing the meals while I'm gone for an indefinite amount of time! Stay out of trouble!’ and then leave.
    What Membrane says instead, however, is “- so I thought, to encourage your pursuits of Real Science, you might like to come!”

    In which Dib has been invited to his Father’s Fancy Science Work Party, and needs Zim’s help. Pining ensues.

    AKA Zim is a fashion diva and I needed an excuse to write that into a fic!

    Summary

    Despite the title, being a college professor wasn't so bad. After all, once you've published several thesis papers about the paranormal, teaching first year sociology is pretty much the only thing you're qualified for.

    Dib was proud of moving on after Zim had left Earth all those years ago. He had a place of his own, a job he didn't hate, and still managed to do some of his own investigating in his free time. He was ready for the return of his alien at any point, but he certainly wasn't ready for another one.

    Dib couldn't possibly fathom the idea of raising a human baby, let alone an irken one! And with Zim having already left the planet before Dib had a chance to tell him, he was gonna have to figure out what on earth he was going to do with this Smeet.

    Summary

    “You know, you’ve arrived at the perfect time. We have a fight scheduled shortly, but one of our challengers has tragically succumbed to her injuries. We need a replacement, and Zoom appears to be a suitable candidate.”

    “Are these fights to the death?” Dib asked, forcing the waver out of his voice.

    Smikka laughed. “Not to worry, Captain. That wouldn’t be sustainable entertainment. Besides, Irkens are notoriously difficult to kill… Though if any creature knows how to destroy an Irken, it’s another Irken.”

    [Intergalactic adventurers Dib and Zim find themselves in over their heads after stumbling upon a gladiatorial space station that pits ex-invaders against each other for the entertainment of formerly conquered societies. Featuring: undercover shenanigans, existential debates, and what it means to trust in your friends.]

    Summary

    It wasn’t new for this kind of thing to take place. In fact, this became a regular event and he was actually really shameful about it. Of course, every young adult went through the troubles of discovering their identity or sexuality and all the different situations that would be completely normal, regarding the average person.

    However, Dib was not your average person.

    Summary

    A sequence that is now (Feb 18, 2020) going to be in Hybrid, Chapter 4, part II.

    I loved the idea of them having wild, passionate sex while eating in bed so much, that I decided to write an extended bit for Hybrid.

    It involves some very light BDSM (biting, choking), Zim embarrassing Dib over one of his many weird kinks, and pizza! 🍕 Which is really what you’re here for ;)

    Summary

    Over a decade after the Florpus Hole incident, Dib and Zim have settled into a strange friendship that's taken them off-world and into the depths of space, debunking myths and defeating monsters (for a reasonable price, of course). After a close call for Dib in a previous expedition, Zim has picked up the perfect odd-job: low risk, high pay, nothing that would jeopardize his traveling companion's wellbeing, not that he's worried about it. Unfortunately, Zim's inability to read the fine print leads to a crustacean-themed catastrophe. With Zim's PAK malfunctioning and his life in danger, both human and Irken will have to confront past traumas if they want to make it off the planet alive.

    Summary

    Dib has believed in the supernatural for years...
    Now he wishes everyone had been right about him...
    Because there is no 'everyone' anymore...
    He had thought being ignored and unbelieved was the worst feeling on Earth
    Now he realizes it's being the Last that's truly terrifying
    Of being an Ending
    And having nobody to blame but yourself

    Zim believed in the Tallest
    Because that's what Irkens are programmed to do
    Only.Defectives.Doubted
    Or revealed they ever did anyway

    Summary

    For Dib Membrane, his life felt like it was a stained-glass variation of the truth. Like a puzzle whose end picture was the complete opposite of what it should have been. He never knew why he felt this way; his life was perfect. What could be wrong about it? Perhaps it had something to do with the awry feeling that would wash over him whenever he stepped foot into his father’s lab. Or maybe it has something to do with those stray fragments of what could possibly be memories. Or by some chance, it had something to do with the small green-skinned man that made Dib’s chest tighten and his brain hammer against the skull of his totally normal-sized head.

    Dib had to bite down the inexplicable urge to call him an alien. How silly of him. Everyone knows that aliens don’t exist.

    (An alternative universe in which Dib a 23-year-old non-believer working with his father in his lab and Zim is a wanted space criminal.)

    Summary

    After disappearing from his life for thirteen years, Zim is back and Dib couldn’t be more confused as to what, exactly, his life is supposed to be as he finds himself in the middle of a war between his head and his heart.

    Therapy didn’t prepare him for this.

    Summary

    Invader Zim AU: Dib Membrane came to Foodcourtia in search of adventure and delicious snacks. He found adventure in the form of a tiny frycook named Zim (and he found snacks in the form of Vort Dogs). Together, they break Zim out of Foodcourtia and strike a deal to get themselves back from the outskirts of Irken-known space. The only problem: Zim's hiding something, and Dib's too lovestruck to care.

    Summary

    Zim and Dib have been together for a while. And they're moving in slow motion, working past the damage done by an empire where something as simple as touch, as comfort and love, are punishable by pain and death. But, Dib is patient and he knows Zim is worth it.

    Summary

    Getting rejected from the invader force is bad enough on it's own. But being reassigned to an information retrieval mission at some institute of peace and learning?

    Zim almost wishes he'd just been exiled to foodcourtia instead. At least there he wouldn't have to deal with humans like the insufferable dirt monkey, Dib.
