Edit: text on the page also at the bottom of the comment
again, one snippet of the story i'm working on
(yes, i actually started writing it down, i don't know if it'll become a real fic..)
in one of my other sketches ("I'm not broken") Zim talked to his Tallest and found out what they really think about him and that he's neither an invader nor wanted near his people anymore.
this whole scene happens during several hours (so it's not a sequence of a short moment, but several stages Zim goes through...)
first... the unbelieving denial, the wait and hope,
still hoping that maybe it was all in a moment of anger from his Tallest,
something they said to spite him...
then, bitter realisation
followed closely by despair and an emptiness never felt before
anger and lashing out with the urge to destroy, wishing it was something alive he could hurt
they don't want you
to them... you're useless
to them... you're a failure and a defect...
