oh god the feels WHY?!

Oh, this was beautiful. Wow. It wasn't like Zim and yet it also was, in a more mature way. Brilliant! And Dib, I agree with everything you said about him. This was so sad, but it's absolutely amazing!

Although I dearly love dramatic Zim cartoon wise, I'm very very glad that you toned him down for this fic, it made it much more sad, especially knowing that Zim does have some depth in his intelligence. Makes it all the worse that he can realize what he lost.
I love your turning of words, such as "Like a bird among fish, he could not teach them how to fly."... and "The earth didn't deserve you, Dib. No one on that filthy ball of rock and dirt deserved you. They gave up their right to you a long time ago, when they rejected everything you offered." That last piece of desperation and sadness and rejection made my eyes water for the poor earth boy.
All in all, a wonderful job at sadness and rejection and loss.

Gah! This made me cry for hours Beautiful~!
| Sky-Byte-Haiku chapter 1 . 7/26/2011
I know everyone who's reviewed this has probably said it a million times already, but this fic is amazing. It's so rare to find such a well done IZ fic, and on top of that one that actually made me cry!
I love your portrayal of Zim, you did an impressive job exploring his more emotional side, you make it very believable, which is something a lot of IZ fics lack when trying to show Zim as softer. I also love what you did with the ZADR aspect, it's nice to see a slightly different take on it. Zim's reaction makes sense, and seems very in-character.
Great job with Dib too. I like his reaction to Zim's decision, it makes the story much more poignant.
This really is one of the best fics I've read, out of any fandom. I have a feeling it's going to be lingering in the back of my mind for quite some time. :)

Do you know what happens when you read this fanfic while listening one Moby song named "Mistake"?
Well, I know what happens.
Happens that you cry like 3 or 4 liters of tears.
This is the saddest thing Ive ever read -I already told you Im crying- But still it was beautiful... So beautiful...
| cupidity11 chapter 1 . 12/20/2010
I cried. It's wonderfly written. I especially ove how you wrote Zim. Dib seems so much more noble and amazing than most authors portray him. I love this story and hope you continue to write in the future. :D
| anonymous chapter 1 . 11/21/2010
.GOD. that was beautifully heart-wrenching and i think i cried about 2 buckets of tears. very well written too. i loved it, even if it made me impossibly sad. poor zim, so devoted to his tallests, and all they ever do is hurt him. and poor dib, loving someone he knows could never love him back, and his last moments... im crying even as i write this. i just want to say thank you for this amazing story. its not often that you read a story that really makes you feel so strongly.
