AN: And this is the last part of the Kribliss saga… enjoy :D
Epilogue – Short Epilogue of DOOM
« Prepare yourself, filthy beast of meat and hair. Your magical love adventure begins NOW! » -Zim (Tak, the hideous new girl)
It took several weeks before anyone at Skool even noticed the subtle change in Dib and Zim's interactions. They still argued a lot and very loudly, over stupid subjects that held no relevance whatsoever to the rest of "normal" people. They still fought sometimes, but always seemed to disappear soon after and nobody even cared where they went. They walked sometimes side by side, discussing animatedly of boring subjects, like the paranormal and science and taking over the world and why you shouldn't try it again, Zim. They still called each other names, but somehow the meaning of Space-boy and Dib-thing had become softer, more like pet names. They never held hands, but the knowing smirks they sometimes shared could reveal it all to someone who took the time to notice. But nobody cared, and nobody bothered. They were left alone and liked it that way.
Nobody was fool enough to confront Zim about his brand new shirt, a drastic change after so many years of wearing his uniform. No one asked about the ambiguous meaning, because no one wanted to provoke the wrath of the green psycho who managed to break Torque's jaw. No one even asked about the matching tattoos they both wore behind their necks and the meaning behind them, but that would be assuming that people knew that there was a meaning.
The best thing, in Dib's opinion, was that nobody ever bothered him anymore. Because Zim had made clear that no one, and I said NO ONE, touched what was his and HIS ALONE.
Dib could live with that.
AN: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we're done! YAY!!!!
Whoa, I can't believe I finally posted it all. It had been written for a while now, I was just correcting and posting the chapters as fast as I could, because your reviews kept me motivated and that it's always nice to have a fic that updates often, heh :)
I would like to thank everyone that read me, that reviewed, that pointed out mistakes, that helped me improve my English, that waited for the next chapter, that got corrupted by this. You guys are awesome, you're my new drug ;)
I'm very happy that you liked the Squeaky crew, Irk knows how hard it is to make believable and likeable Original Characters without falling in the oh-so-easy Mary-Sue trap. I hope they weren't XD
I also hope that the slow pace of the ZADR didn't get on your nerves, I was trying to keep the boys as much In Character as possible, even if it's pretty much impossible with this pairing. But what do you know, I like challenges ;)
I won't be posting my stories as fast, now, because I have to write them beforehand. Go check out my profile to know what I'll be working on, I still have tons of ideas to work on :D Technically, I'll be correcting and posting my one-shot "DAD! I can explain!" pretty soon, because it's short. After that, I'll get started on "How to be Kool". It won't be as epic, but it'll be fun nonetheless ;)
On that, I wish everyone a wonderfully happy new year 2008, may your life bring you everything you want and lots of deeee-li-cious ZADR ;)
