Invader Franny was an Invader Zim / Franny K. Stein crossover fan fiction posted on by B gal on December 19th, 2006.

The story has Franny K. Stein becoming a new student at the Skool and befriending Dib. One day, they decide to use time travel to see if Zim will be a major threat in the future, but find themselves in a Bad Future where Dib has become evil and renamed himself Dark. With the help of Franny's future self, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, an alien girl named Deadly and a woman named Doomsbury, it's up to Dib and Franny to save the day.

The fic presently has 13 chapters and has not updated since January 16, 2007.

You can start reading the fic here:


  • Bad Future: 20 years from now, Dib has gone crazy and decided to murder everyone as payback for being dismissed as crazy.

  • Out of Focus: Franny's dog Igor only gets a brief mention in the first two chapters, with her parents and brother getting no acknowledgement whatsoever.
