l'essential est invisible pour les yeux by formerlydf, RPS, Zach/Chris, read right now. Okay, the thing is, the first time I read it, I found it awesome and hysterical, and the second, even funnier but also thinky. I'm on read eight now, because I think I fell in love with a metaphor. It had to happen one day, I suppose.

It was bound to happen.

"Disney stole your heart," Zach repeats, trying to ascertain that he's grasping all this and it's not, say, some very bizarre aural hallucination. "Not your soul?"

It's a very literal metaphor, mind.

Shoo. Read.

I have that open in a tab! \o/ \o/ (I just need to get through ontd_st first and then I'll get right to it.)

It is really amazingly good. I'm so not kidding about the fact I'm on read nine now.

Okay, reading. Her summary line is excellent!

(Btw, I hope you got my mail re: Heroes fic. I tried to keep caps-locked flailing to a minimum, even though it was v.v. hard.)

I did! I am contemplating! As that fic is kind of cracky.

Wow, that IS incredibly good. Re-reading now. Thanks for reccing it!

Thank you....more recs? XD

I heard about this last night, and I remain skeptical.

He gave him his metaphorical heart literally. How is that not awesome?

Also, I mean, we all knew Disney was evil, yeah?

Disney megacorp, or Walt qua Walt?

idk, I haven't read it yet. I heard something about a tree being involved?

STILL SKEPTICAL.

It's a metaphorical tree.

...and a metaphorical art deco art thing.

There's a lot of metaphors. Or possibly metaphorical constructs?

Disney megacorp that steals hearts!

Ok, that's... trippy. And awesome.

And now I'm trying to decide if what my evening needs is Princess Diaries.

I AM GLARING AT YOU RIGHT NOW BECAUSE DAMNIT I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO START GETTING INTO PINTO FIC AND CLEARLY, CLEARLY IT IS ALL YOUR FAULT. I MANAGED TO SOMEHOW IGNORE EVERYONE ELSE'S RECS BUT NOOOOO YOU GET IN EARLY IN THE MORNING, RIGHT WHEN MY DEFENSES ARE DOWN AND I'M BORED BEFORE LECTURES. YOU PLANNED THIS DIDN'T YOU?????

P.S. REC MOAR

I'm getting my rec list together!

I'm just going to be over here for a little while, you know, trying to stop staring at the screen. Um. Thank you for the rec! I confess, I was really not expecting that.

"It should be okay now; two weeks is about the limit, and anyway, half the cast of High School Musical are planning to steal their hearts back. Disney's got bigger things to worry about."

Every time I remembered this line all day? I totally laughed. And then melted for the rest of it. It's just so--so much to read that it feels so much longer than it is.

Ty for the rec! It was really good: I was all alsdkfjl when reading about the heart-senses.
