We are so screwed in this fic. Not like we weren't already though.
Great chapter though keep up the good work, I love how you tied in Zim remembering Tak and her eventually seeing it in the interrogation file. If Zim even took the time to remember her it must mean she left a lasting impression on him.

I like Dib and Gaz's conversations. "Dib was probably being unfair." No, Dib, you weren't.
I love "If I'd destroyed it, there would be no repairing the ship!" I don't blame Tak for thinking Zim did it, though.
(Man, I hate how ffn disabled the copy-paste function: it makes it that much harder to point out my favorite lines!)
Zim and Dib really do care about each other, in their unique, twisted way.
If Zim and Skoodge are biological brothers, it would explain why they're both so short.

EVERY TIME THIS UPDATES I NEARLY FALL OUT OF MY CHAIR FROM SURPRISE. Still one of my favorite fanfics. The character interactions are so spot on awesome in this chapter. :D

Man, I'ma huge fan of your series and have played the game. I'm so thrilled that you haven't given up on this story and I hope you DO see it through to the end because it's wonderful! I love the amount of work and detail you put into it. I've heard your story described as 'as good as canon' and it's true! Your characterizations are spot on and that's what makes this story so exciting to read. I've just re-read everything since it's been a while and you added the new chapters and it was excellent!
I'm bad at carefully organizing my thoughts so, a list is in order:'
-ZIM CAN FLY OMG
-I wonder what exactly Gaz is planning.
-I love the little argument between Gaz and Dib. It felt real. Like something real siblings would do.
-The monster recognized Zim. Holy wow. It's sentient. That's so terrible.
-I'm loving how Zim is kind of recovering. Maybe, he had a mental as well as physical change with his new wings.
-GAH. Zim and Dib's convos never cease to make me giggle. They bicker and there's so much history. You write all the character's relationships excellently.
-Tak's sass Perfect.
-Also, is Dib still transforming into a werewolf? Is that still a thing?
-Is that where the irkens got the design for the Pak? From the pods of their wings?
-Also, how Dib is so much older than everyone else with all the Irken bickering and yet so much more of a child at how excited he get's about things i.e. Zim's wings and the werewolf (like Dib the thing is gonna eat you but WOW IT'S A PERFECT MALE SPECIMEN )
I'm just very much looking forward to how this is all going to pan out. If you're writing, you have loyal readers, that's for sure. :)

The story is up again! Hurray! :D
| MythNeko chapter 12 . 10/14/2013
I'm sad that there won't be anymore to this story, but I do understand. :(
This is really well-written and I immensely enjoyed reading it.
I'm highly impressed with both it and Experimental. These are two of the best Invader Zim fanfictions I've ever read. Thanks for writing them. :)

OUT OF STORY?
YOU CAN NEVER EVER STOP, EVER

Y'know...normally I really do enjoy your work, but...one thing about this chapter really bugs me. And this, I hope, is just something that sticks with you for future reference. Dwicky dying just seems pointless. He has NO relevance whatsoever on the story. It's just a name-drop death of a character that we, the audience, will never really see interact with the characters of the story, done pointlessly to remind us that
1. The Irken race sucks.
2. Zim sucks and doesn't think things through and has no concern for this little thing called "innocent life".
But we already kinda knew that. So...yeah. Just...POINTLESS. A death ought to feel like a meaningful thing. That sort of killing of a character isn't one of those ways.

"to summon Commando Gaz turn t page [illegible]" FFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU...okay.
This was a nice juicy chapter. I'm eager to see if Zim's wings will work to some degree, but between the wings and the PAK if it were a choice, I'd stick with the pak. It's like people and iPhones. We don't use our brain anymore, we have iPhones, some day those things will be attached to our skull or something

Obviously the grotesque experiment rattled Dib a lot more than he'd like to admit, given how jumpy he is in this chapter.
I loved Zim and Dib's interactions in the car even though (or perhaps because) there wasn't anything else going on. These lines are great:
"You're almost as complex as a human being."
"Dib was still an exciteable child, for all his height. And Zim was not a ladybug monster. Zim was Zim."
"Dib was familiar with all of Zim's personal weak points (a knee that had been sprained before and could easily be sprained again, his scarred shoulder, places where GIR had recently bitten him) and, though he would not say this aloud, he was smaller than Tak. Dib would be in for a nasty surprise if he tried to wrestle with her."
I think we've discussed Irken metabolism and how their bodies get fuel awhile ago, but I've been thinking about it more lately. We see Zim heal quickly on the show, and I've learned from volunteering in wildlife rescue that animals with high metabolisms heal quickly. Birds rarely need stitches because their wounds can close up in a day. So now my theory is that Irkens probably have very high metabolisms and need to snack constantly. Their PAKs have energy reserves that keep them alive without food, but they must drastically limit their movement to conserve energy, and the Irkens would heal more slowly than humans in this mode.
I don't know how relevant this is to your fanfic at this point; I'm just rambling.

Umm... so you're pretty much a genius... At like, writing and humor. I love how you write dialogue. Lol, what the heck Dib? Just up and abandon Zim, whydontcha? Also, cliffhanger. -_- Oh, and just because the page number is illegible doesn't mean you can stop people from flipping through the entire book page by page, haha.

SO good to see an update of this. :D This one was pretty awesome. I like seeing Dib take notice of Zim's weird psychological tendencies. I just love them talking about stuff in general, these character interactions are really interesting to read. Also the ending has me on edge aaah please keep writing. _
Page 12! *Flips frantically*

Oh my gosh. I love your stories. They're my favorites. Your an extremely talented and amazing writer. I've been reading your stories for years since the beginning of Experimental and I've been hooked ever since. Please update! :)
