Zim X Reader: Weirdest Night EverYou have lived here all of your life. Days, weeks, months, years have passed by with nothing out of the ordinary occuring whatsoever. It was an uneventful town. And if anyone had to ask you, your life was quite uneventful as well.
Your life had been and, as you assume, always will be average. You believed you were somewhere in the middle when it came to looks with your (h/c) hair and deep (e/c) eyes. No, it was nothing for anyone to make a fuss over. You were a high schooler and you had never had a boyfriend. Meanwhile, girls in your grade dressed in tank tops whether it be winter or summer, and they seemed to go out with different boys everyday. It hadn't fazed you that much; right from the beginning, kindergarten, you knew they were going to amount to this. You knew deep down you were better than all of those girls combined. Not everyone in your grade was like that; you had a couple of good friends and that was all.
Your life changed, er, slightly, when a green-skinned fellow was sta
Seventh Ring: Part 10 - Escort
“He's fading again. The poison's spreading fast.”
Seven repositioned Three's arm over his shoulder as he carefully led him out of the woods and back into the wide, grassy yard just outside of William's house. His jaw tightened as Three's weight fell entirely on him as the older alien dipped out of consciousness with a miserable groan.
“Go get Two,” said Seven when Six joined his side. He'd just lifted Three's other arm as if to try and bear some of his weight, but Seven thought it better to send him ahead for help. Six's wide round eyes were filled with worry for his fallen comrade. His pupils dilated as he examined the large, sticky tail barb that was embedded in Three's meaty forearm. Blood and poison oozed around the entry point, prompting Six to move faster than ever back to the house.
“Hang on Three, we're almost there,” grunted Seven as he plodded forward.
As Seven began to cross the yard, he noticed that Three's other side had suddenly become

Chapter 2: Numbers
New Earth, 418 A.C. (After Contact)
"Bring the coach around back, Two," said William hastily to a tall, lanky alien standing beside a jet-black carriage. Two was one of William and Ari's longest owned aliens. He was also one of their most trusted, hence their allowing him to remain unchained and unsupervised with their carriage. They were certain of his loyalty to them and often left him in charge of simple tasks; like going to the market and cleaning around the house.
Two looked as though he had just stepped out of the 17th century. He was an older, stuffy-looking alien who had a small head, long face, a large nose, and big green eyes that always seemed to be looking down at everyone. He also had ears that were long like a goat's, but one could never tell, because he insisted on keeping them tied behind his head like a tiny ponytail. William chose him specifically for his snobby demeanor and snooty, high-end tastes. When
Seventh Ring: Part 9 - Deja Vu
“These wounds have healed up quite nicely.” Two lifted Seven's real arm and dabbed a glowing glob of green goo just below his ribs where a large, deep gash had been.
“No kidding. I've never healed so quickly from a fight before. What is that stuff?” Seven lowered his arm as Two screwed the lid back on the small bottle. The ointment burned at first, then felt cool and tingly.
“It's called Regeneryn. As the name suggests, it's an extremely powerful regeneration component that only the elite have access to. While it's most typically found in the homes of those that are far older than William, he likes to use it to keep his fighters in good health. And of course, keep them fighting more frequently since the heal time is so quick. That's why he expects you to be back in the Ring in seven days.” Two placed the bottle of ointment in a shoulder bag he primarily used to carry all of his supplies. It looked like a medical supply bag that a medic would sport on
Seventh Ring: Part 3 - Formalities
Three was silent for a moment, making sure that William had put enough distance between them before he spoke. He was short by alien standards and quite stocky and square-shaped. His body was covered in a thick, leathery skin that was no doubt used to protect him from the harsh rays of his own planet's star. He appeared to be reptilian, but his face looked like a scaly bulldog. Two long teeth pointed straight up from his lower jaw and wrinkles sagged over his forehead, cheeks, and below his eyes. Three was clearly well-aged.
"So, they've reached as far as Kazek, huh?" he asked curiously in a rough, dry voice. He tucked the dirty towel he'd been using into his back pocket and crossed his thick arms. His tattered, once-white shirt was covered in what looked like oil and red dirt beneath a tight pair of suspenders that stretched over his very broad shoulders. Seven looked at him fiercely, but it was obvious that Three was genuinely curious. "They don't tell us much 'round here.
Seventh Ring: Part 12 - Storm
The days that followed Gabby's visit were much of the same. Each morning, Ari met Seven for breakfast while Lucas continued to work on the shop. After delivering Marge's meal and inhaling his own, Seven explained more of his world to the curious human girl who seemed so fascinated with him and the place he called home. He had to admit that he was starting to look forward to speaking with her each morning, as she always had new questions, and he was able to appreciate his world more and more. While it still made him homesick to think about, it also served as a reminder as to why he needed to escape William's farm. With as involved as their conversations often became, he was ever vigilant for the Cerasaurs that had seemingly vanished into the woods. And despite his feeling guilty of the impending danger the creatures posed to the farm and its inhabitants, he was beginning to worry they may never return.
Large, puffy cotton ball clouds rolled through the sapphire sky as the morning sun co
Seventh Ring: Part 18 - Upgrade
Six shot into the air like a startled cat when he heard the sudden popping sound of Seven's arm. He had stopped to take a break from his training with Six to work on some repairs. The look on Six's face said it was not going well.
“Is it supposed to make that sound?” Six slinked his way over to Seven on all fours while his small, cat-like nose went to work on sniffing the air. Each time the Kazekian's arm made a sound, Six visibly jumped, but continued his slow approach.
“Probably not. I'm trying to tighten this rotor here, but I can't reach it.” Six's pupils grew nearly as large as his irises as he examined the area that Seven was trying to reach. It was deep within the rods and hydraulic cylinders of his cybernetic forearm.
“Want me to get it?” Six lifted his small hands and clapped his finger tips together in a crab-like motion. Seven assumed this was an attempt at trying to convince him that it was a good idea, but it did little to help reassure

"Are you ready?"
Seven had just wiped beads of sweat from his dirtied brow with the back of his hand when he heard the familiar voice of Ari. Each day, at the same time every morning, she came by the small construction site where he and Lucas had been working to build the new workshop beside the house. It had taken them three days to complete the framework and lay the foundation of the shop according to Lucas' designs, and now, they were busy mixing concrete.
A humid, stifling summer heat had set in over the past day, which slowed down their work considerably and forced them to work late into the evenings when the weather was more hospitable. Seven did not mind the longer hours, but it was putting an obvious drain on Lucas. He noticed that the human was not moving with as much excited zest as he was a few days ago when the project first began. He was less patient, sluggish, and noticeably stressed. Perhaps now was a good time for a break.
Ari stood quietly in the bare, wooden door fram
