Tumblr ZADR/ZADF by sassafrass002
Some posts of these two adorable losers from my Tumblr account. Some were drawn by hand, others on my iPad with procreate. 

The one in the centre to the right is a scene from an RP that I hadn't uploaded to Tumblr and
is for :iconpat-the-kitsune: :D

Sending Dib a confused look at his last few words, Zim couldn’t help but shake his head slightly at them. “…Then… Why do you yell at Zim… If you don't want to do it?” He asked, a little thrown off guard by what the other had just told him.

“...I-I don't know... I don't know... Maybe there's just something wrong with me... I don't want to lose you, but this keeps on happening…” Dib brought up his hands to wipe at his eyes.

“What? Lose me?” Zim shook his head. “But don't most people not like yelling yet still do it?... I do it, but it doesn't mean I like doing it or anything, so there’s nothing wrong with you.” He said with a nod as though to confirm that what he just said made sense.

“But there must be something wrong with me... You're the best thing to ever happen to me and still I yell at you... Even when I don't want to anymore...” Dib was shaking slightly now. “...And you're always so nice to me too...” His voice fell down to a whisper.

Giving him a small poke on the forehead, Zim looked down at him sternly. “Not always, and how can you expect yourself to not be yelling in this situation, hm? The only thing 'wrong' with you is this pneumonia.” He said with a nod to himself.

Instinctively swatting at the small poke lightly, Dib then caught the other's hand and pulled it in to nuzzle gently, playing with the Irken's fingers all the while. “I don't think having pneumonia is the only thing wrong with me... I think there are a lot of things wrong with me... Even when I am well...” He hugged the green hand close. He loved the other's skin and just wanted to feel it pressed up against all of his body as he sighed out lightly.

Zim’s eyes widened a bit before falling half lidded as Dib nuzzled his hand softly. “... I don't think there's anything wrong with you… In fact, I think you’re the most 'right' person I've met on this dirt ball of a planet.” He said before moving his thumb gently against the other’s cheek.

Blushing a tiny bit, Dib blinked his eyes up a Zim. “E-Even though I'm obsessive compulsive a-and everybody calls me crazy? E-Even though we've...” He trailed off, looking down at the covers and blushing a bright red now, remembering everything they'd done over the past few days.

Zim looked down at him confused. “We've..?” He twirled a hand as though trying to reel the rest of what Dib had been about to say out of him.

Glancing at the nurse momentarily, Dib only continued to play with his fingers nervously before dropping his eyes back down to the covers, blushing an even brighter red now. He couldn't say it in front of her as he fiddled with Zim's fingers silently, having by now tensed up somewhat.

Zim frowned. “What?...” He went silent when he realized what Dib was getting at. “Oh... But what has that got to do with anything?” He asked, not understanding why the other was bringing THAT up all of a sudden.

“W-Well...Y-You don't find it weird that we...Umm...You know...” Dib’s face was completely on fire now as he had stopped playing with Zim's fingers, his hands still shaking however. For him, he thought it was weird that he just couldn't get the image out of his head. He couldn't get ZIM out of his head. Every stray thought he had always returned to the Irken now.

“Hmm...” Zim put on a thoughtful face for a moment. “Nope!” He then took Dib by the hands. “So stop getting so worked up. Lots of people on this planet do that, right?” he smiled reassuringly at Dib.

Cheeks a light pink now, Dib blinked his eyes wide open at Zim. “W-Well...Yeah... B-But not with... With...” He glanced back at the nurse a second time, hesitating to say 'alien,’ not to mention 'MALE alien.’

Taking Dib's arm to draw out words to him with his finger, Zim frowned again. "But Dib, to me, you're the alien, and I don't feel weird or 'wrong' about it.” He wrote out before lifting his gaze back up to stare the other straight in the eyes.

“Y-You don't?” Dib dropped his gaze back down to the covers, his blush never leaving as a small smile graced his face, happy to hear that the other didn't feel weirded out by everything they had been doing over the past 3 or so days.

Placing Dib's hands back in his own, Zim shook his head in response. “No, Zim never makes any wrong decisions.” He smiled.

“S-So then what DO you think about it?” Dib asked, curious as to what Zim's response would be.

“Uhmm...” Zim blushed. “...Well...” he looked at the covers. “I think… I… I can't really describe it…” He said after a moment’s consideration.

Looking away to the side, Dib blushed also. “W-Well... D-Did you enjoy it? W-Would you want to do it again...? A-And maybe even go a little farther...” He said the last part in a quiet whisper.

Looking back up at Dib, Zim’s blush darkened. “Uh...Y-Yes, Zim enjoyed it and would do it again...And...Uh…” He just nodded his head slowly in response to his last question.

“O-Oh... Okay then... M-Me too...” Dib began fiddling with the blanket as he said that although in reality, he was nervous about the idea of going any farther with Zim.

Smiling happily at him, Zim just stared down at Dib before catching view of the nurse out of the corner of his eye. Turning his head a little to see her looking at them in a mixture of confusion and maybe a bit of suspicion, he then became rather paranoid and looked back at Dib again. “Uh… Uh, yes! Zim will be happy to… Uhm… Play badminton with you again, Dib.” He squeezed Dib's arm tightly to prompt him to play along.

Not realizing that the nurse was watching them, Dib sent Zim a slightly confused look now. “Huh? Wh-What? You want to play badminton with me?” He sent Zim an odd look.

Zim smacked a hand to his own forehead. “Ughh...” He then grabbed Dib by the arm and wrote him another message with his finger. “Nooo! Did you not see how that nurse was looking at us right then?! Like she knows or something! Just play along!" He wrote out urgently, hoping the other would catch his drift this time around.

Lips quivering momentarily at Zim’s question, Dib struggled to keep his voice steady as he went to reply back to the other. “I-I just feel s-sicker here...I d-don't like it...I-I don't want t-to stay here anymore...” He broke down all over again.

Sitting himself near Dib and scooting in closer, Zim looked at him worriedly. “I…I don't know what to say, Dib…I don't want you to have to stay here either.” He said, uncertain what else he could do to comfort the human.

“Wh-Why can't they just l-let me go home already...?” Dib’s head found Zim's lap as he buried his face into it and curled up in the bed. “Th-This place makes me dizzy...” He whimpered in a muffled voice as he tried not to let his gaze wander anymore.

“I don't know…I'm sure they have a reason…Maybe it's because you need the IV medicine…” Zim tried to calm Dib by putting a hand to the side of his face.

Dib let his eyes slip closed at the feel of Zim's hand softly caressing his cheek. “...But it's just making me feel worse...” He said in a voice just barely above a whisper.

“Well...You might feel that way, but maybe it's really making you better...?”

“...I don't feel like I'm getting any better...” Dib said, curling in on himself a bit.

Zim sighed. “Just give it time. You won't feel like this forever. The medicine will work.” He said with a confident nod, though a part of him was starting to doubt its effectiveness.

“Well, I wish it would work faster!” Dib snapped, getting upset now. “This stupid IV is killing my arm...” He then whimpered, no longer comfortable having a huge needle just stuck in his arm like that.

“Mmmph… I don't know, Dib-thing…I want it to work faster too, but…You'll just have to wait.” Zim wiped away Dib's tears with his thumb.

Dib sniffled wetly as Zim wiped the tears out of his eyes. “A-And you'll wait with me...?” He lifted his head slightly to stare up at the other with big, tear-filled eyes.

“Yes! Just like Zim told you before.” Zim nodded his head before smiling down at him reassuringly.

Dib let his eyelids slip halfway closed as he stared up at Zim. “...O-Okay...” He slumped against Zim a bit more.

Happy to see Dib had calmed a little, Zim moved both his hands to Dib's hair, running his fingers through it and stroking it gently while looking down at him in thought.

Nuzzling into the Irken's lap comfortably, Dib closed his eyes tiredly at the gentle strokes. “Mmmmm...Ziiiiim...” He hummed out in a finally calmer voice.

Zim laughed quietly to himself a bit. “That feels good?” He continued running his fingers gently through Dib's hair.

Dib let out a small content sigh, bordering on a purr. “Mmmhmmm...” He smacked his lips together contently.

Zim smiled. “Heh…Okay.” he spread his fingers over the top of Dib's head and gently ran his thumbs in circle motions against his nape.

Shuddering, Dib gasped at the other's ministrations before melting at the Irken's touch.

Continuing to gently massage the top of his head and nape, Zim leaned down to give Dib a small nuzzle to his forehead before moving his fingers against his head now too.

“Mmm... I'm sorry...” Dib murmured quietly, remaining limp in the other's lap.

“Hmm? Sorry about what, Dib?” Zim asked, still massaging his head.

“...About yelling at you earlier...” Dib whimpered out quietly.

“Oh... Forget about it.” Zim smiled calmly. “I think I'd be yelling at people much more if I was in your situation.” He said, not wanting Dib to feel guilty about before.

“...I don't like yelling at you though...I don't like making you mad at me...” Dib said, his eyelids wavering slightly as a few stray tears clung to the edges of his eyes.

Chapter 85 ->…… <- 83

Looking up at the nurse when she broke the silence with a hushed whisper, Zim responded back in an equally muted voice. “Oh... Did he say anything when I left?” He asked, thinking that perhaps the other had just been waiting for him to leave before saying anything in regards to what had happened.

The nurse could only shake her head slowly however. “No... He was crying under the covers for a while though. I think he just cried himself to sleep right after you left. B-But don't worry. I'm certain things will be better once he wakes up.” She tried to assure him despite the tension that no doubt still hung in the air from their earlier argument.

Doubting that very much, Zim just looked back down at his lap gloomily in silence.

The nurse sent Zim a sad look before looking back down at Dib and sighing.

After several silent minutes, Dib shifted slightly underneath the covers, turning over in the bed, his scythe lock poking out from underneath the blankets. “Mmm... Zim...” He murmured quietly in his sleep.

Seeming to perk up a bit at hearing the other say his name all of a sudden, Zim looked over in Dib's direction again before realizing that he was still asleep.

Curling in on himself a bit in his sleep, Dib sniffled wetly, a few stray tears slipping down his face. “...Zim...” he whimpered softly in his sleep. “...Don't leave...You promised...You promised to stay...” He sobbed gently to himself, pulling his knees up to his chest underneath the covers.

Getting up onto his feet after a moment’s consideration, Zim walked over to where Dib was and gave him a light shake. “Dib…” He attempted to rouse the other from his sleep.

Jolting back awake, Dib jumped at the small shake and sat up with wide eyes, panting as he looked around the room before bringing his blurred gaze back onto Zim. Seeing the other, he then shrank back a bit, away from the other's touch, looking about ready to break down again at this point as he just stared back up at the other.

Looking back at him wide-eyed, Zim then looked aside suddenly, feeling rather awkward. “Uhm…” He picked up the glasses. “I fixed your glasses.” He held them out for Dib to see. “See, good as new…” He tried to offer the boy a smile with his words though it came across as rather weak.

Wasting no time at all in clinging to Zim, Dib hid his face away in the other's shirt and sobbed gently. “You left me here all alone, and you promised to stay no matter what!” He exploded in an array of emotion.

“...I-I know... Sorry.” Zim ran a hand over the top of Dib's head, looking to the side and feeling horrible with himself now.

“If you knew then why didn't you stay?!” Dib’s sobs grew harder.

“Well... It was either that or leave you blind for the rest of your stay here... I don't know, but…You didn't say anything when I asked if you wanted me to stay... Why didn't you say anything?”

“Because you wouldn't have stayed even if I HAD said anything! I just know it! You wanted to leave! You wanted to get away from me!”

“What?! No, that's stupid. The only reason I left was to fix your glasses. Why would you think that?”

“B-Because you were m-mad at me...” Dib whimpered out in a shaky voice.

“No, I wasn't. You just...seemed to get really upset all of a sudden. I thought you were mad at Zim.”

“Because you accused me of hitting you with that doll on purpose when I didn't!” Dib sank down in the covers a bit, crying still.

“But!...” Zim sighed. “Oh, never mind...Can't we just forget it?” He asked, not wanting to continue fighting with Dib any longer.

Blinking up at Zim, Dib only continued to sniffle wetly. “Y-You're the one who started it...” He said, bringing a hand up to rub up under his eyes.

Wanting to object, Zim frowned but just let out another sigh.

Breathing shakily, Dib finally dropped his gaze back down to the bed covers as it was hurting him to look at Zim and to even sit up as he slowly went to lie back in the bed again. “...I just want to go home...” He whimpered out softly for what was probably the millionth time in 48 hours. He didn't want to stay in a place that Zim was going to leave him in.

“Yes, I know you do, but just think…” Zim put the glasses back over Dib's eyes. “You won't have to stay here that much longer.” He said before sending the human a more sincere smile this time.

Shaking in the bed, Dib pulled the covers up more at those words. “I-It hurts being here...” He said before looking around the room again, cringing when his eyes landed back on the IV in his arm.

“Hurts?” Zim sent him a confused look. “Hurts you how?” He asked, his smile falling away as he didn’t quite understand what the other meant by that.

Not even responding back to Zim’s accusations this time as he felt just a tad bit hurt and angry the other wouldn’t believe him, Dib rather reached back behind himself to grab his pillow and smack Zim square in the face with it.

“AH!” Zim spluttered, pushing the pillow away from his face before adjusting his wig and glaring daggers at the other, reaching out a hand to grab another pillow to hold it up threateningly in case the other decided to try and thwack him again.

Rather than hitting Zim a second time however, Dib merely stuck his tongue out at him.

Lowering his pillow, Zim blinked at that gesture and frowned before then poking his own tongue out at Dib himself.

Taking the opportunity when Zim was distracted, Dib smacked him a second time in the face with his pillow.

“Mmph!” Zim accidentally bit down on his tongue, smacking the pillow away and bringing a hand up to his mouth. “…Oww…” He glared, taking the pillow again and then smacking Dib back with it.

Wincing at having the pillow hit him in the face, Dib blinked his eyes open only to realize his glasses had fallen off, leaving him virtually blind now. Nonetheless, he retaliated again by swinging his own pillow back at the blurry red and green figure.

Holding up his pillow to shield himself with, Zim then swung it at Dib again. “HA!...Pathetic.” He smirked when the other wasn’t able to score another hit with him.

Not even seeing the pillow coming at him this time around, Dib was hit smack in the face, causing him to lose his balance and fall back on the bed, eyes snapping wide open a split second later when he heard a loud cracking noise that could only belong to his glasses shattering beneath his weight.

“...” Zim blinked wide eyes at the cracking noise, suddenly realizing what it was a split second later. “Uhm...Oops.” He sank down a bit in his spot.

Wasting no time at all in sitting up quickly to frantically search for his glasses, Dib blindly began feeling all around him for them.

Spotting the now broken glasses before Dib could locate them, Zim slowly brought down a hand to grab them and hold them up to see exactly how damaged they were. “...Uh…” He drew the other’s attention back to where he was holding them.

Snapping his gaze up to where Zim was holding them, Dib then instantly snatched them out of the Irken's hand to have a look at for himself, finding the frame to be bent and at least one of the two lenses to be completely shattered. Obviously upset, he weakly hit Zim with his pillow again.

Shutting his eyes tightly and just letting Dib hit him this time, Zim then opened up his eyes again and looked at him apologetically. “...I can fix those… But I'll have to go home in order to do so.” He offered, hoping he hadn’t upset Dib too much with their roughhousing.

Dib didn't respond or even look back up at the other however as he just remained staring down at his broken glasses before turning back over onto his side to face away from Zim again and pull the covers up over his head.

Rolling his eyes at that reaction, Zim decided he'd ask again in a minute. Sitting himself at the edge of the bed and letting his legs hang over the side, he then swayed them a little as he sat there.

Sniffling wetly, Dib remained hidden beneath the covers.

Knowing the other was really upset with him and nothing he could say to him would help at this point in time, Zim bowed his head and sighed in defeat before turning back to look over at Dib again. “Dib, it'll only take me half an hour at most if I take your glasses back to my house to fix.” He said before taking the glasses and standing up. “If you really don't want me to go, then say something now. Otherwise, I'll be back in a short while…” He said, a part of him hoping the human would at least respond back to him in some way before he left.

Dib remained silent as Zim got up to leave however before finally breaking down under the covers when he was pretty certain the other had left him.

Putting the glasses into his PAK, Zim left the ward quietly and made his way out of the hospital.

The young nurse, meanwhile, stood from her chair to approach Dib cautiously. “Aw, Dib, he said that he'd be back shortly…” She said in a weak attempt to calm him down some.

Sobbing softly to himself, Dib could only curl in on himself underneath the covers at those words.

Deciding that she'd just have to let Dib get on with it, the nurse sighed out shakily before taking a seat back down in the chair, looking over at the door where Zim had just left in the hopes he wouldn’t be gone long.

Returning to his base, Zim took the elevator down to his lab and started the repairs to Dib’s glasses. Using the technology he would usually use to fix broken weaponry or voot parts during emergencies, he easily managed to replace the broken lens and fix Dib's glasses within a matter of minutes before heading back out again to make his way back to the hospital, letting out a heavy sigh as he left his base once again.

Meanwhile, back at the hospital, Dib had by now only calmed slightly into a light sleep, tears still slipping from his eyes as he slept soundly.

Entering the room where Dib was being monitored, Zim looked over at where Dib was still under the covers before glancing at the young nurse and placing the fixed glasses on the table beside Dib's bed. Taking a seat at another chair in the room, he then looked down to his lap, shifting his feet rather uncomfortably.

Looking back up when Zim entered the room again, the nurse watched him as he took a seat in a chair positioned against the wall before looking back down at Dib and then back up at Zim again. “I think he fell asleep while you were gone.” She said in a quiet voice so as not to disturb him too much.

It's all fun and games until somebody breaks their glasses.

I lead a busy lifestyle, but all I truly want to do is draw, sculpt and sew... And watch some good cartoons.

Tumblr ->
This Journal also has an update for you 'Dib is sick' readers and contest participants waaaay down at the bottom of this entry~

Congratulations :iconviscarla: for catching my 100,000th page view!!! Yaaay!!! I shall get to work with your request soon ^^ 

though it seems I have another winner as well :/ Is that actually possible? A glitch on the site perhaps? 


Anyways, now for the updates... If some of you haven't already rushed off by now ^^;
I think it's fair to say I've been working my butt off over the past year and haven't had the time or luxury for being as creative as i'd like to be. I'd be surprised if there's many people reading this journal at all for how inactive I've been. But I do hope this year that i'm able to churn out at some artwork on a more regular basis. I have so many empty drawing pads that need filling! So that's my main resolution for this year I suppose. Also, drawing isn't the only creative hobby i'm hoping to improve on this year, I've also taken to the art of FIMO and using other clay based materials. I've actually made and sold quite a few things, so I may pluck up the courage to post in some pictures at some point ^^; Hopefully. 
A very good friend of mine has given me a premium membership, and I really want to put it to good use this year :)

Here are some of my other resolutions if anyone is interested:

Oh god women just learn how to drive!!... Even though it scares the sh*t out of me, I have to learn. After every lesson I am shaking like a leaf, But driving is a necessity and it must be done -__-

To many times do I receive a yearly diary and it gets neglected about a month or two down the line, and I miss important stuff because I write it down on miscellaneous paper bits that get lost... God I am so stupid sometimes...

Well, the title says it all really, my confidence with my artwork is thinning. But I know its only going to get worse unless I do something about it ^^; As ridiculous as all this may sound.


ALSO, a little update for you 'Dib is sick' readers and contest participants.
Yes, the contest is still going! But it ends when we post 100 chapters! So if anybody wants to add an entry, it's not too late ;) Here is some info about the rules and prizes ->…
