3 Works in Oblivious Professor Membrane
Dib was growing up. Not very well, though. He longs for the days of when he was oblivious to his genetic clone history and before his and Zim's... Relationship got confusing. What was a teenager taking care of his little sister to do?
When Zim falls head over heels in love, he can't just not acknowledge that Dib would be revolted with him if the boy found out. But he can't stop himself either. They're both horimonal teenagers who desperately want to figure things out. But it's hard to do that when Dib's neglectful father tells him he's a hybrid of Irken and human and when Gaz needs to be supported.
Oh, and, Gir and Skoodge eventually come into play seriously at some point too, I guess.

Professor Membrane cares about three things: 1. Science, 2. His glory, 3. His children (because it involves the first two let's be honest.) But after attending a conference where all three of those things are metaphorically attacked, it puts him in a bit of a mid-life crisis.
When he returns home, Membrane attempts to prioritize his kids over his own ambition but struggles to connect with Dib. Desperate to find any sort of bridge, Membrane remembers the man he met at the conference. The one who almost made cryptids and aliens seem scientifically possible, and certainly made up for any lapse in judgment by being so dedicated to the principles of the field.
But every phonecall becomes less about paranormal suggestions and more about each other.
“Gaz would you be scared if I said..Zim, isn’t as bad as I told?..” Gaz cocked a thin brow, her face turned into anger and confusion. “You’re saying Zim isn’t a bad guy? After all these years of fighting him? Trying to expose him, and dragging me along with you. Like non of the scars and trauma he’s given makes him a bad guy?!”
“Dib, what happened to you? Why are you like this?”
