Sorry I'm getting this up so late today, you guys, but I had to deal with a shit storm NGD decided to leave on the front page of this account first before I could get back to posting.
For the record, you guys. She is just FULL of absolute SHIT about the ownership of this fic. She thinks that JUST because she made a few websites for it and threw out SOME plot lines for it, that means it ALL belongs to her. But the fact of the matter is, nobody MADE her make those goddamn websites. Nobody MADE her spend money on them. That was her own doing 100%. I would have been perfectly happy just keeping the story here on DA. And she most certainly did NOT come up with all our plot lines for this story. The writing of the story was a joint effort in the sense that we did role play it together. But overall, -I- was the one who put all my time into MAKING it an actual piece of literature. I didn't HAVE to do that. We could have just kept the fic to ourselves and never posted it for anybody to see. Because Lord knows, you people wouldn't be wanting to read a fic in script.
I didn't consider ZO to be an actual work of art until AFTER it had been made into a readable medium. The fact that I was the only one willing of the two of us to take that script role play and write it out FROM SCRATCH in a narrative form should be enough basis for why I have the right to be posting this fic up again. If NGD doesn't like the fact that I'm taking something I worked my ass off on and putting it back up on here, well then, she can just go shove it. She has NO proof that I stole anything. I put my blood, sweat, and tears into this story. I'll be damned if it doesn't get finished. I am NOT starting over from scratch. I put too much time into what was already written. So fuck her if she wants to try and report the fic to DA. It won't fucking work. Should DA decide to remove the fic, I'll just end up moving it to somewhere else she has no say in reporting at. Because trust me, you guys. I have contacts elsewhere. I know places I can get this fic posted without her having any say in the matter whatsoever.
So for those of you who think I'm in the wrong, how about stepping back for a moment and asking yourself, "What would YOU do if you put over a years time into writing a fic your partner didn't even lift a FINGER to help you write?" Hmmm? Not only did I write the first 130 chapters. I re-wrote chapters that became lost or deleted whenever my crappy laptop would die on me. I put in more than my fair share of work on the fic, and NGD has NO right be walking around telling ANY of you that I didn't do "boo fucking hoo" on it. (Yes, she actually had the nerve to tell me I didn't do ANY work on this fic and that it only belongs to her) So I think I'm more than justified in the reposting of this fic. She may not like it, but that's not my problem. I don't work my ass off on things just to have them go to waste.
That said, I'll be getting back to posting now.

Warnings: EXTREME OOCness! (If you can not handle the OOCness in this story, then please click the back button now and don't even bother commenting about it. Any flamers we get WILL be blocked accordingly)
All of Zim's parts for about the first 3/4ths of this story were done by =Notgonnadie
. Because of an argument we had a few months ago, however, and the fact that she left the fandom, the last 1/4th of this story will be written with help from =metros2soul
So we hope you all enjoy what has been written already and what will continue to be written towards the end.

Chapter 6: [link]
(Oh, and by the way, you guys. I AM revising this story as I go along to make it a smoother read. Revision in itself takes almost as long as actually writing this fic. So don't any of you DARE accuse me of not doing any work on this fic. I don't care if you take her side or whatever. It's not gonna change my stance on this. If NGD had wanted to post the fic up herself and do all that work, it would have been fine with me. I even gave her that option to continue it on her own back when I first stopped work on the fic with her. She didn't lift one fucking finger to make it work. All she did was send all our readers who wanted to know if it would be updated again MY way. She didn't even want to deal with you guys. If that's not a lack of dedication then I don't know what is.)
