i feel like the closest thing Zim would ever got to a redemption is maybe he actually realizes the tallest rawed him. but he would totally distort that into “they tried to get rid of me because I’m so powerful”. and he might try to work with Dib to get revenge on them.

anonymous asked:

" He looks down on Zim as one dimensional, morally depraved scum with no possible motivations other than he’s evil." While I do tend to be on Zim's side, in Dib's defense, Zim hasn't really given him a reason to see him as anything other than that

I was thinking about Dib in the beginning of the first season. He was written in a more antagonistic light in the older episodes, but gradually became a more developed character. I didn’t mean for it to come across as me berating Dib; I mean he did hear the ominous transmission about galactic conquest. I used that phrasing to compare how neither have a high opinion of the other, however I never said either was in the right.

As a kid, Dib’s views of the world around him are simplified, and as the bad guys, Irkens are morally inferior. On the other hand humans are technologically and mentally inferior to Irkens in Zim’s eyes.

That and, even if I had a reason to dislike someone, I wouldn’t exactly want to slice them open. I mean Dib encountered a humanoid creature that can socialize like a human, but still would not hesitate to treat him like a pickled frog in a school science lab.

This is a kid thinking about vivisecting a small green man. Yes I know this is IZ, but that’s the point.

Almost everyone is terrible.

Zim is terrible,
Dib is terrible,
Gaz is terrible,
The Tallest are terrible,
The humans are terrible…

Like Vasquez said, it’s a show about “Horrible things happening to horrible people.”



PUNY HUMANS! Soon you will all know the taste of DOOM. AGAIN.
